Okay, it is time to empty the vanity hahaha. That's all for now! I hope you gain something :)

10 Day Random Challenge | Day 6: Unread Books

10 Day Random Challenge - Unread Books | Lenne Zulkiflly

Assalamualaikum and hello! I'm halfway there and today's post is all about the books I neglected. I should read them but I don't, yet. Anyway, let's just jump right in, shall we?
  1. Flawed by Cecelia Ahern. A book recommended to me by a friend and I'm a sucker for any recommendations. I'll take that as a 'oh yes I must buy it, I must have it, I must read it.' Unfortunately, there it is, (I mean the book) sitting quietly on the bookshelf.
  2. Girl in the Dark by Marion Pauw. I'm a fan of thriller and mystery type of book ever since I read the Zodiac by Robert Graysmith. So, I picked up this book A.S.A.P and I've read the synopsis and it's quite interesting and I'm intrigued. And still isn't enough to make me grab this book and read it sooner. Haha.
  3. The Girl on the Landing by Paul Torday. This was recommended to me by a friend too and she said since I love horror movies, why not I give it a try for a horror, supernatural thing like this one here. But still didn't manage to read it. 
  4. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I've read shit loads of good reviews for this book, even my sister raved about it at the bookstore. I don't know how I feel about it but maybe I'll read it, soon.
  5. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I picked this book because I thought of Mockingjay lol it's not the same, right? Or maybe it is, I don't know. This book has nothing to do with how to kill a mockingbird btw, for your curious minds lol.
  6. Paper Towns by John Green. I've seen the movie, yup, but it wasn't all that good. Maybe the book will justify my thoughts, that's why I bought it. And still haven't read it.
Not that much but I'm just a lazy ass. All in all, I just hope that I can finish all these while I'm on my 2 months semester break.

Till then! x

10 Day Random Challenge | Day 5: Recent Picture

10 Day Random Challenge - Recent Picture | Lenne Zulkiflly

Assalamualaikum everyone!

My room is always freezing but today my room chose to be scorching hot, and I'm pissed. Ugh. Anyway, I'm already halfway there! I'm doing a pretty good job on keeping up with this, I guess. Without any further ado, let's!

10 Day Random Challenge | Day 4: Makeup Bag

10 Day Random Challenge - Makeup Bag | Lenne Zulkiflly

Assalamualaikum and hello people! 

To be honest, I'm not a crazy, crazy makeup person but I do wear makeup for self-satisfaction (and don't forget shit loads of selfies lol) and that's pretty much it. Here are what I consider my makeup bag essentials:

10 Day Random Challenge - Makeup Bag | Lenne Zulkiflly

This is the makeup bag that I'm currently using. I bought it when I was in Kuching, and I believe it was last year. It's pretty big and I'm stressed because this is the reason why I carry a huge god damn handbag whenever I go out.

I don't put my foundation and BB cream in my makeup bag for some reason, but look what I got in here instead. It's the M.A.C Prep + Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer that acts as my primer before I slap the foundation on my face and the Maybelline Pure Mineral Concealer in the shade 02 to combat zombie eyes.

Basically for the face, Silkygirl Magic BB All-in-One Powder Foundation in 02 Natural is great at keeping my skin looking all matte and flawless. Clean & Clear Oil Control Film to soak up excess oil and it don't disturb the rest of my makeup. Tissue paper, just in case.

Bunch of eyeliners with different applicators and formula. What can I say, I love experimenting products. So, the bottom one is the L'oreal Super Liner, I got it for so long already and it's amazing still. The rest are from IN2IT. They make great eyeliners, though. I've been using their eyeliners for ages now. You should check them out if you are looking for a great drugstore eyeliner.

As for my eyelash game, I have the Silkygirl Eye Opener Waterproof Mascara and I'm quite impressed on how lengthening it makes my eyelashes. I also have a mascara from M.N. This is great for natural looking eyelashes and I'm running low of it hahaha might as well get The Falsies very soon!

For the chubby cheeks, I have a blusher from Etude House and if you look closely, the white sparkle thing is actually a highlighter. So, you get two products in a one small container haha maybe that will justify the price of this baby. I also got the M.A.C Mineralize Blush in the shade Dainty, my favorite.

Okay, I'm sort of a lipstick hoarder. I actually have more than this but my makeup bag will some kind of explode, so yeah. The true red one is the NYX Gloss, I got it long time ago from my best friend. Next to it is the IN2IT Gel Lip Tint in Strawberry and it's my holy grail. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Istanbul. The color is my fav but it's super dry on my lips, so I don't use it that much. Silkygirl Moisture Boost Lipcolor Balm in the shade 04 Rose is my fav color from the collection! The next two are by Kissproof Powdery Matte Lipstick in the code 15 and 09. Last but not least, lip liners from True Lips in the code 52 and 54. 

That is all for now, I hope you enjoyed! Till then!

10 Day Random Challenge | Day 3: Worst Habits

10 Day Random Challenge - Worst Habits | Lenne Zulkiflly

Hello there!

Habits are something I think everyone has. It can be good or the other way around. But we're talking about worst habits and here they are:

This is the one that has been with me for as long as I can remember and no matter how much I try, I just can't get rid of it. I've always been the 'I'll do it later' kinda girl. It's so bad that there are times when I will need to do something, such as write a blog post, or text my mom, and I can put it off for so long that it gives me anxiety and still isn't enough to make me do it sooner.

Sleeping too late
I go to bed later than I should and rarely get 7-8 hours of shut eye. I know it sounds bad but it's kind of a thing for me. I don't really know if I'm an insomniac or what. I know it's not that deep. I'm cranky, I admit, and sometimes I can be a little too unproductive with my day. I need to shake it off but I just don't know how. I used to stress about it but I guess, it is what it is haha.

Playing with phone before bed
Have you ever lay in bed with the lights off and spent a few minutes scrolling though your phone to check your Instagram and Twitter feed? Those few minutes can turn into half an hour, forty-five minutes, or even an hour! I know it's bad for the health but it's hard to break this habit though.

I'm sure I could come up with hundreds of other habits but these are the ones that are so so so hard for me to break. We all have at least one bad habit of some sort, girl. Don't find it embarrassing or whatever. 

So, what are your worst habits? Do you do any of the ones above?

10 Day Random Challenge | Day 2: Favorite Youtubers

10 Day Random Challenge - Favorite Youtubers | Lenne Zulkiflly

Assalamualaikum and hello y'all.

Here's the real deal lol, I spend 90 percent of my free time watching Youtube and it's weird if I spend a day without watching Youtube. I literally have no life. Youtube is my life lol. Whatever. Judge me. Whenever I'm not blogging or reading blog posts or don't have anything else to do, I'm on Youtube watching videos! And the list of my favorite Youtubers is just insane but I'll try to break it down a little so... enjoy!

I've watched her videos for ages and I love her to bits and pieces. She usually posts makeup tutorial, DIY, tips and tricks and advice videos and most them are hilarious. She can be really ghetto sometimes (she admitted it lol) and she's also a huge animal lover! I love her even more for that.

She's amazing. She's known as the most popular beauty makeup artist from Korea and Youtube star. She definitely caught my attention from her Tay's transformation makeup tutorial. I watched every single of her videos ever since! I'm definitely a fan now haha.

#3 Tati

If you're looking for product reviews and tutorials, look no further. Tati provides the most helpful and honest reviews on drugstore products and high ends. Honestly, I won't buy something if she has said she wasn't a fan of this specific product. That's how much I trust her reviews haha!

You probably know Mish by now, because how could you not? She's OG. She's the most successful beauty icon. She can transform herself into just about anything using just makeup. She also posts makeup tutorials (tons of it), tips and tricks, trend reports, DIYs etc. 

Anwar Hadi is my favorite Malaysian Youtube sensation by far. If you have seen some of his videos, you would know that his channels' main attraction is current trends. His EwwwW video up there is such a big hit and hilarious of course. I'm so attracted to his accent and just the overall how he speaks. If you're looking for a fun and at the same time educational videos to watch, look no further.

Weylie's vlog channel and her boyfriend, Wah. Consists of vlogs they decide to post but I need to warn you, you should never watch their vlogs when you're hungry because they like to show what they're eating in every vlog haha. They're both hilarious, so cute together and I cannot go a day without their vlogs. Their vlogs are like caffeine, I mean I need my caffeine everyday. So yeah.

I still have a lot more though but I think that's enough. Anyways, do you watch any of these Youtubers? If yes, who? I would like to know who are your favorite Youtubers too! 

Till then xx

10 Day Random Challenge | Day 1: Blog's Name

10 Day Random Challenge - Blog's Name | Lenne Zulkiflly

Hello beautiful people! Let's get into it right away. Okay. So, blog's name. Alright.

It's so simple and pretty much self-explanatory. My blog name is literally my name (not literally, it's my nickname) and my father's name. I think it's so cute to include my dad's name just because I have one and I'm proud to have one. As for 'lenne', I got it from my classmates in secondary school. It was actually just 'len' but then I came up with a brilliant idea to add 'ne' at the very end of it just to look all fancy schmancy.

If you have a struggle to pronounce my nickname, read my FAQs.

The reason why I chose it is because if my blog ever did become successful, I would want myself to be instantly recognized by it and I would rather everyone to know me as Lenne Zulkiflly. Hehe.

Blog name is probably one of the most important steps to creating a new blog (since this is my new blog!) and you want it to be easy to remember. But as for me, I want something that is not too specific but still related to me somehow. Buat apa I pening-pening fikir my blog name, I boleh je take it from my own name kan lol. That's how I came up with my blog name!

That's that! Till then x

P/s: Remember your old embarrassing blog URL? Yup. That's the reason I made a new blog. Judge me lol.

Cheap And Easy Homemade Lip Scrub

I tend to catch myself peeling off the skin from my lips. It's addictive. If you have this kind of problem too, high five. Girl, no amount of water can save my super chapped lips. I used to believe that licking my lips will cure the problem. It's completely the opposite and will actually make the issue even worse. I've tried so many lip scrubs, lip balms, exfoliator whatsoever, you name it.

Lips are one of the best parts of the face so I give my utmost effort to cure it even if I have to go to the moon, but for the sake of my lips, I would.

So, I decided to give some of the homemade versions a try since all the fancy scrubs from the store didn't work out for me. This is what I really hate. I paid a fortune for them :( But, surprisingly, homemade products have worked well for me. Yay! I finally settled for this one because it's the easiest to make and also cheap *cough cheapskate cough* 

What you'll need:

  • 2 teaspoon of raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 1 small empty container

Ikr! It's simple and easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy and takes little to no time. No fuss, no muss.

  • Place the sugar and raw honey in a teeny-tiny empty container and mix them together until the sugar is all covered with honey.
  • Test the product on the back of your hand to see if it's too runny or too harsh. 
  • Apply a small amount of the product to your lips and massage gently in a circular motion to get rid all the dead skins. Let it sit for a few minutes and wipe it off! (or you can lick them but you'll be eating dead skins lol)

You can use this lip scrub once a week or every 2-3 days. I use it before I go to bed so the next day I'll be checking myself in the mirror and my lips are looking pretty nice and gorgeous. That's one of the best things in the world lol. There. Enjoy your luscious, pink, healthy looking lips. 

P/s: I'm not an expert and am just sharing my thoughts and experience. Different things work for different people and this is something that has worked for me.

Till then! x
