Life Update & A Little Bit about Me

Hi loves!


I haven't been beauty blogging in a while but I thought I'd do something a little different today and write a little bit about what is currently going on in my life and just random thoughts. This is not something I often write so maybe you will enjoy reading this? Hee! =D

I recently got back from a trip to Stockholm, Copenhagen and Berlin (which was lovely!) but was so tired after that, I just laid in bed every day doing nothing as it is summer holidays for me. Doing nothing is absolutely heaven for me as the past year has been absolutely hectic for me. 

Don't think I've mentioned it before, but I am studying to be a lawyer and have just finished my Bar exams (which is like a postgraduate but something I need to do in order to practice law) in May. I received my results last Friday and by the grace of God I passed all my exams! The shock of having passed everything (it is a TOUGH course!!) and extreme relief I felt left me feeling knackered for another day. It then hit me that I was going to be called to the Bar for real (it's next week!), which means that I will be going home to Malaysia for good.  It's crazy when I think about it. Time has flown and it's not time to properly enter the working world!

I've been spending time clearing books, notes etc and slowly packing things in order to have things shipped back or donated away. And honestly, I have so much junk- I can't believe how much I've amassed in the two years I've been here! Been also trying to use up the products that I have, so do expect to see a few more 'Product Empties' posts in the very near future!

So I've been pretty preoccupied with many things and have had no time to blog. I've also not been feeling the mood to blog of late. When I feel this way, I don't force myself to blog because I love my blog and my readers and I do not want to write a post for the sake of writing and not enjoying what I write. I feel it somewhat defeats the purpose of me sharing what I love with all of you. So I hope you can understand my recent lack of posts. 

Many years have passed since I started writing this blog and I feel like my writing style has changed, and I don't want to be restricted to the current way that I type, so I may change my post layout and the way content is delivered. It's exciting to be able to grow in my writing style and growing together with my blog and lovely readers  and I hope you can join me on my journey as I grow and still enjoy what I write!

Okay, so I think I've typed a bit too much now haha! That was just me sharing bits of my life and myself, and how I feel I want my blog to change. If you've read all the way to this point,  thank you! =D

I hope you will continue to support and enjoy my blog, and I will do my best to write things that both you and I love!

xx Amanda


  1. First, congratulations on passing your exams! That is no small feat and I am so impressed by your hard work, dedication, and the time that you have put into it! I'm sure the bar will go just fine :)

    Second, isn't it hard to move?! I just moved across the country and it was insane how difficult it was to pack and sort and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. I can't imagine trying to move internationally! Enjoy Malaysia! It's one of the best places I've ever had the opportunity to visit!

    Finally, blog as you see fit - this is your space on the web to do what you like! I always enjoy reading your reviews and ideas on here but if you need a break, then you need a break. I think every blogger has been there at one point or another.

    1. Thanks Elizabeth! The Bar was difficult but I am just so blessed and happy that I made it through! Yes, it was unbelievably hard to move. Too many things and I had to throw and give so many things away! Thank you so much for understanding and for the kind words. It really made me smile =)

  2. Congratulations on passing your exams!!!! I know what you mean what you say doing nothing is like heaven... I could use some days off.

    xx, Be || lovefrombe

  3. Wow congrats on passing your exams - very impressive. And good luck moving back to Malaysia you jet setter!

    Lots of Love, Me.

    1. Thanks Vicky! Moving back was crazy but I did it!


Please do comment, it brightens my day! I appreciate all thoughts and feedback and want to hear from you on what I can improve! Thanks! =D
