Hi everyone! I am in the mood to tell you a story of my past.

Years back, when I was around 13-14 years old, I had one random thought that maybe I should start a blog. Mainly because I spent so much time on the internet. I have read pieces after pieces of content and thinking maybe I could try to do the same thing - which happens to be writing/ creating content. 

Well, whaddya know, I got myself a blog! I know it happened so fast and I remember all that falling snow effects, rainbow links, and overly cute and pink blogs and Blogskin?? OH MY GOD, it was the shit back then.


Anyway, I think this is something worth mentioning. I know I said I started blogging mainly because I spent a gazillion portion of my time on the internet, right? Well, another half of it was me seeing a friend of mine posted boatloads of blog posts about her boyfriend. I honestly thought that was the 'shit' back then and there goes the thinking- "maybe I should do the same thing?"

And I started to do the same thing. I know. Homegirl is easily intrigued and influenced, so yeah. I started off pretty 'meh' and I mostly blogged about a day in my life, *cough* my not-so-exciting love life *cough* and that was basically it. The blog is like my virtual journal/ diary if you will. I have always loved writing back then during my school days guys, I write just about anything in my diary. And my diary has a quirky name. Haha! Good old days.

Fast forward to this day, I guess now I blog so that I could just simply write, share and exchange thoughts. And if I did retire from blogging one day, it's been my dream to tell my own kids that their mommy is a blogger. Apart from that, I love knowing awesome people in this world full of awesomeness. This is the space where I learned new things, where I made mistakes, where I knew a lot of cool bloggers etc.

What does blogging mean to me now?

Blogging has always been a hobby of mine. I know some people may think my hobby is an expensive hobby lol which it is. I sometimes buy makeup products so that I can form a review for you guys. But I never really mind if it really is one expensive hobby, I just want to write and share my thoughts. And I know deep inside it's not my time to shine yet. I don't trust myself to take blogging as a career just yet. But it would be great though to blog for a living.

After everything is said and done, can I just say that I am truly happy with my blog now? I have a blogging niche, I can reach up to 10k page views per month (though it does not much compare to other bloggers), I have known a bunch of lovely people that I never knew existed and the list can go on and on. I guess that's a wrap. I hope you enjoyed it. I want to write more often in the future and just be consistent despite my hectic college life because it is not just a blog :)

What is your blogging story? How did it all start?

How Did I Begin Blogging?

Simplysiti Ultra Moist Lipstick | Lenne Zulkiflly

Today's beauty product review is one of my newest favorite lipstick that is the Simplysiti Ultra Moist Lipstick in the shade Ku Mahu. It retails for RM25. You can get it at Watsons and Guardian. I bought it about two weeks ago, I made a blog post about it here. A little story of the past, I was so hyped when I finally got my hands on the lipstick. I thought it was matte but it turns out wasn't. It was a bummer lol. But I love the color so I'm all good.

If you guys know me, then you must know how huge my love towards lip products. I don't step out of the house without putting anything on my lips. I mostly love matte shades but y'know matte can be super drying on the lips.

Packaging

A+ for the packaging. I am a sucker for sleek packaging like this. I mean, look at that. It's not just attractive but it's sturdy. You don't have to worry anymore gurl, you can throw this in your bag and it will slip and slide in there with ease.

Simplysiti Ultra Moist Lipstick | Lenne Zulkiflly

The shade

The shade Ku Mahu is a very wearable nude with a little hint of pink. The subtlety makes it appropriate for any occasion. I think it can suit most complexion very well. 

Pigmentation

The pigmentation is surprisingly great. The color you see on the bullet is the color you will be getting once you apply it on the lips. It manages to cover my tad bit dark upper lip with 2-3 coats. You can build the color as well for more intensity. 

Texture

The texture is very creamy. It glides on really easy, it feels like butter but it does settle into the fine lines which I found weird because it's an ultra-moisturizing lipstick. Talking about moisturize, it really moisturizes the lips, hands down. Thus it's perfect for those who have dry lips.

Wear time

It lasts about a solid 5 hours on my lips without eating anything. You cannot expect much because it is not a matte formula. It will completely gone after a meal, that one you have to bear in mind. So, this is the kind of lipstick that you need to reapply.

PROS:
  1. Wide range of color selection
  2. Creamy texture
  3. Moisturizes the lips very well
  4. Buildable color
  5. Has a nice subtle mint scent
  6. Lightweight formula
  7. Attractive and sturdy packaging
  8. Decently pigmented
  9. Slightly affordable

CONS:
  1. Settle into fine lines
  2. Weak staying power 
  3. Slightly sticky
  4. Does transfer 

Verdict

Despite all of the issues I encounter with this lipstick, it comes in handy whenever I fail to decide what lip color I want to wear that day. I have been wearing it non-stop since I bought it. If I had the chance to buy more shades, (because all the shades are to die for!) I would definitely buy some more. 

Have you tried this lipstick? What are your thoughts about it?

Movie Review | The Conjuring 2

Hello everyone! 

So, I went to the theater last Friday to watch The Conjuring 2 with my kid sister and my uncle's maid, Kak Sue. It was around 9:00 PM and I wasn't all prepare. I mean, I didn't book the tickets earlier so we didn't get the chance to watch it at 9 because it was FULL HOUSE! I didn't have any choice though, so I booked the 11:30 PM ticket. We had a karaoke session in between just to kill the time lol because we got like 2 hours before the movie started. After the karaoke session, we went for the arcade games there. 


Gurl, I won the race haha!


That's just that. I don't want to talk like in-depth about that, so let's get on to the review! (No strong spoilers so no worries okay)


There hasn't been a better horror movie since The Conjuring (2013) came out. Well, at least for me. The time I saw The Conjuring 2 trailer on the television, I know that it won't disappoint me and I have to watch it no matter what happens. This time Ed and Lorraine Warren are charged with a new paranormal case in England. Mrs. Hodgson, a single mother who is raising four kids and are in need of help as their home is taken over by a demonic force.

THE PLUS:

Ed and Lorraine Warren were so great as an on-screen couple. I love that when they handle such cases calmly. Talking about the crazy possessed girl in the movie, Janet Hodgson. She's so great and she's amazing! She seems like a nice little girl, then when she scares the crap out of you when she possessed, your jaw will drop and you'll be covering your face because it's hella scary. The jump-scare moment this time is no joke, y'all. It's even better than the first one.

I must say, there are lots to love about this movie! There are genuinely scary moments, those unexpected creepy scenes and when the background music goes silent and when you think something is about to happen but it doesn't, I love it! The tactic never gets old. I get chills everywhere but it turns out nothing really happens lol. That forces me to be ready at all times. By ready I mean to cover up my face with a popcorn haha!

THE MINUS:

There's almost nothing bad to say about this film. I love it so much! But, I think it would be much love if they reveal the reasons why the demon keeps haunting the family and what makes it so evil and not just focus on the scares that the demon does. I almost lost my voice screaming like crazy in the theater.

OVERALL:

The Conjuring 2 is a great horror movie and really scary at so many points. It's even better than the first one. The scare is no joke this time y'all have to see it for yourself. The showtime is a tad bit longer than I expected, my mom waited for more than 30 minutes to pick us up. Other than that, it's definitely worth watching and worth your money. Oh and lack of sleep too, because I imagined Valak is somewhere in my room (I know it's crazy but that's that) haha. I give it 4/5 stars.

4 over 5 stars because I love very very much but lacking a star because I almost lost my voice due to screaming. Conjuring 2 is sure to supply just enough scare for y'all y'know. So, have you seen it? What are your thoughts of it and how does it compare to the first one? Let me know! Till then x
