Shoe Pom Poms


Question: Have you ever hidden a clothing item (etc) when you're not sure whether you want to buy it or not, because you think you'll leave the store and go around the mall, and if in case you want it later, you'd just come back for it and it wouldn't be sold out (esp if it's the last piece/size)? You tuck it between a pile of jeans (I did this with a pair of shorts at Zara once), or you simply hide it in another corner rack? So nobody sees it!

Okay, either you do it too, or I taught you a new...umm....trick.

LOTD | Quotes That Changed My Life & Perspective


Hello, I'm Cynthia.
 .....and I'm a Quotes Addict

Seriously, if I ever come out with a book someday, that is how I did it. Because, you know.... 
"You become what you do everyday." 
Hahaha!

And this is partly what I meant by Rabbit Hole in this post.

Words really are powerful. They can change how you live your life & make you 
see things in a different light.

That's why I wanted to share my favorites in a blog post. 
Well, they're really just a few of my favorites!

*Please note: I don't know or remember the source of most of them.

Look for the answer within your question. ~ Rumi

If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. ~ Mo Willems.

He comes as everything you've ever wished for.

When you say "Yes" to others make sure you are not saying "No" to yourself.

Know your worth, then add tax.

They start to miss you when they fail to replace you.

When someone says "You've changed", it simply means you've stopped living your life their way.

Before taking down a wall, remember why you put it there in the first place.

Beware of Destination Addiction — a preoccupation with the idea that happiness is in the next place, the next job, or with the next partner. Until you give up the idea that happiness is 
somewhere else, it will never be where you are.

I AM YOURS. DON'T GIVE MYSELF BACK TO ME. ~ Rumi

Making a big life change is pretty scary. But you know what's even scarier? Regret.

It's Skin ~ Now In India


Remember when the brand Lush pulled out of India? Honestly, I'd never been that big a fan of the brand, but a whole lot of bath bomb addicts were crushed!

The other brand that has become elusive in India is Bourjois. I just don't know where it went! And you guys know it's my favorite! 

So now, I've taken it upon myself to support all the new brands that are testing the waters here in India. Especially Asian/Korean brands that I'm all about lately (skincare), in the hope that many others will see we are very happening & India is the place to be =D

Etude House, Missha, Laneige, Tony Moly...  Are you listening??!!

Back in May, when I'd dropped by New U to get a new tube of mascara, I saw a new counter- It's Skin. I got acquainted with this brand on Ebay when I was browsing Korean skincare stuff, and I only bought an eyebrow gel mascara before. That day I went crazy! I couldn't even. 
14 types of serums to pick from, for starters.

So  here are all the products I've got and been using so far....

My 2 AM Thoughts | Nightwear OOTD


This blog post was inspired by a very touching email I got from a reader recently. It's a story about her life that she shared with me. I thought it was one of the sweetest things, for someone to tell somebody they'd never met something personal & heartbreaking. She also requested me to blog more regularly again, because it's what she looks forward to, and she added that she finds me relatable. That alone made me want to just come here and post something! I wanna take this moment to apologize to everyone who feels the same way, I know I've been leaving you hanging....and maybe a lil' confused. 

I also wanna say to every one else who's going through a hard time, and you find yourself on a broken road, please know that you're not alone. I've been there, and so have a lot of the people I've met over the past few months. Everyone is battling something, everyone is masking something too personal or painful to talk about. But in time, it gets better. You'll feel better. And one day, you'll find yourself thinking - "This wouldn't have happened if that hadn't happened to me."  - with gratitude. 

I can't promise you my own story, because I see no logic in talking about things you want to forget or simply move on from, you know. Also, I'm not very good at talking about serious matters on this platform. Even now, I already feel uncomfortable & if it was in real life/in person, I would probably be saying something stupid or quote an overused phrase at this point.

So for now, I hope me making this impromptu personal post EXTRApersonal by posing in my nightwear & bathroom would be like our  little virtual slumber party & help us reconnect again! =D

Take out your pennies for my..... 

(Random) 

2 AM Thoughts......


(Hoping I'll be able to buy something pretty with them when this is over. 
I'm thinking....a perfume, with a bow on it!)

Product Of The Week ~ Innisfree Apple Seed Cleansing Oil Balm


The answer is YES.

We now a product just like the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm, which is very pricey! (Rs.2900?)

If you're like me, and always have a hard trying to decide whether to carry a big bottle of Cleansing Oil or not every time you travel (of course you also misplaced so many of those tiny travel-sized bottles that'd come in real handy!), then you need a cleansing oil that comes in a small container! =)


Because its a Korean product, I couldn't find a really good description of it online, so I'll just put the common one I found :

 ~ Steam method moisturizing ingredient opens pores to cleanse impurities inside pores.

~ Helps to have moisturizing cleansing that won’t be dry after cleansing.

~ Washable type that you can cleanse with water.

~ Refreshing apple fragrance.

~ Help to have moisturizing cleansing that won’t be dry after cleansing.

~Washable type that you can cleanse with water.

Basically, once you spread this on your fingers, it melts into oil which thoroughly removes makeup
and then you can rinse it all off with water.
