Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Blogger Event: Of Pyjamas, Candles And Some Boob Talk

What do pyjamas, candles and boob talk have in common? Yes!! A pyjamas partaayyy!!!

Only that I didn’t get to have the boob talk at the actual event. You’ll see in a while.

When I got invited for the event I didn’t expect to be that special and fun! Oh I never expect anything out of any event anyway coz every one is always different.

On the eve of the event my blog manager Gabby texted me to come dressed in pyjamas and I was like ‘HUH? Pyjamas?! Why so weird?’ but in my heart my reaction was more like ‘YAYYY!!! HAPPY!!!’. LOL.

How I LUURRVVEEE themed parties! School uniform, Geeky, Shanghai, Wondergirls (HAHA!), Cowboy, etc. I love dressing up specially for an event; going through all the costumes, makeup, hair makes me ~high~. That’s why I LOVE Halloween!

OMG! That’s in less than two months!!!  

A themed party makes the experience more wholesome, the energy more united and everyone more in tuned with one another. It’s like having a shared, sacred memory.

I love themed outings, but one thing I no longer do is wear couple clothing.

It’s so… um… un-adult-like. Maybe coz we’re both 28 and way over the let’s-get-cute-together-and-let-everyone-know-we’re-an-item stage. Kinda passe, you know what I mean? We’ve been together since secondary school. Yea, we did the couple clothing thing back then. That’s why I felt a little, teeny, tiny awkward when we went out in BRIGHT orange top and off-white shorts/berms just recently. Hoho.

Unintentional mitchy-matchy couple tops *shy*

Acne and Health: What Your Body Is Trying To Tell You With Pimples!

Recently, due to bad sleeping habits and being under immense stress, I have been experiencing serious acne on my face. Fortunately for me, there are no mega events to attend for this period; outbreak started a few days after the Nelly Furtado showcase. But at the same, I feel very sad every time I look in the mirror.

Horrible, horrible, angry, red pimples EVERYWHERE!!! Right cheek, left cheek, chinny-chin-chin, jawline, and even the forehead which rarely has any pimples. And the skin on the jawline is so dry and flaky! Dry?! What?? I’ve never had dry skin in my life before!

It’s timely that I recently came across an image showing vaguely how having acne on different parts of your face actually shows the condition of your internal organs. And I decided to do more research on it and put together this post for long-time sufferers of acne and as a reminder for myself to take better care of my health.

Before we start, have you ever wondered why you always get pimples in the same spot? Ever wondered why acne appears only on certain parts of your face?

If you’ve:

  • battled with acne all your life,
  • tried products from high-end to drugstore,
  • been recommended products by friends who have flawless skin anyway,
  • been conned by one too many scheming promoters who give you hope that their products will work miracles on your skin only to be disappointed time and again,

it’s probably time to analyze the underlying problems.
