Things I'm Grateful For | 2017

It's the time of the year where I slightly feel a bit sentimental and make time to reflect on the year gone by. 2017 has absolutely flown by and literally blood, sweat and tears went into getting through 2017. And for the most part, I did it. So I thought, what a better way to end 2017 on a good and positive note than to list the things I'm most grateful for! Am I right or am I right? 

It's so easy for us to take things for granted. We don't have a clue about the value of something until it's gone. Even when things don't go our way, we tend to forget that there are so many things to be grateful for regardless of how bad the case may be. So here are 36 things I'm grateful for this year.

Things I'm Grateful For | LENNE ZULKIFLLY

  1. My family. The ones that always got my back. And I miss them badly. 
  2. My part time job. It's my first working experience. I hate it at first but I can't lie how much I love it now and how it has made my life so much easier. 
  3. Cats. I can't imagine the world without cats. They are so comforting and they feel like home to me. 
  4. Friends. The ones I have now and those I once had. Thank you. 
  5. The weather. Though I complain so much about it being too sunny or the other way around, I still love it regardless. 
  6. Sunrise & sunsets. So majestic. 
  7. Grab & Uber. Thank you for always be there for me when I don't have a ride. 
  8. French fries. Greatest invention. 
  9. My phone. I have had it since forever. It annoys me, it irritates me but my favorite persons live in it <3
  10. Notebooks. 
  11. Water. As much as I love my milk tea, I still can't go a day without you. 
  12. Long drives. Especially at night when there's barely anyone on the street and it's super calming! 
  13. Sleep in. One thing that I look forward to, every single day. 
  14. Plants. 
  15. Vanilla scent. 
  16. Good health. The ability to just keep moving forward everyday. Alhamdulillah. 
  17. My education. 
  18. The internet. What is distance, anyway? 
  19. Movies & karaokes. 
  20. Music. 
  21. My five senses. 
  22. Mirrors. I can't go a day without looking myself in the mirror. 
  23. Weekends. It's often unproductive but I just love it. 
  24. Rainy days. 
  25. Makeup. How can I not include this? 
  26. Flat shoes. 
  27. Green tea. The ones in a giant cup with lots of ice and condensed milk. Yum!
  28. Fresh air. 
  29. Sheet masks. Thanks for making my nights extra fancy. 
  30. Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart. To. Die. For! 
  31. Instagram. 
  32. Long walks. Had to sneak in some cardio. 
  33. Strangers. They tell me stories of their past and their family or even how pretty my makeup looks. 
  34. Spicy ramen. 
  35. Home. It doesn't have to be a house. Whatever, wherever or whoever home is, I am happy to have one. 
  36. The blog. And the lovely people I have known through blogging. 
The list could go on and on but I will stop here. I'm pretty sure there's more to be thankful for and I'm going to spend the last few days of 2017 showing gratitude and spreading happy vibes. Here's to a tough but exciting new chapters! Thank you so much for reading ❤

What are you grateful for?

Drugstore Skincare Haul

Hello beautiful people! I'm going to show you the things that I bought about few weeks ago that is skincare related and inexpensive. You know how deep my love for drugstore items. I'm always on a budget, you guys know that. So if you're on a budget too, I hope this post helps you any other way. So yeah, hope you will enjoy today's haul and let's get into it!

1. My Fav Recipe by Nuela Aloe Vera Gel

If you're a long time reader of my blog, you know this is one of my holy grail product. This is the only aloe vera gel that my skin loves so much. Just a little FYI, I have stopped using this for a solid 3 months for no reason at all. I just got busy and neglected this baby. And that's when my skin just acting up and not behaving. So as you can see, I'm very dependant on my aloe gel, this aloe gel specifically. If you have an oily skin type, this could potentially be your moisturizer. It's very inexpensive and this giant tube lasts about 6-7 months (maybe more!)

2. Aiken Tea Tree Oil Facial Cleanser

This is my first time trying this facial cleanser. I hope it works! I have read quite a lot of good reviews about it. Purchased it because it has tea tree oil in it and you guys must be aware of the amazing power of tea tree oil. However, I don't have acne prone skin but it surely is oily and I do get pimples and breakouts some other time every couple of weeks I would say, so I'm always in the hunt for a good oil controlling products. I have put it to the test for few weeks already since I bought it and I can safely say that I love it!

It's very gentle on the skin and it has a strong tea tree smell to it. I love it but some people don't. The texture is thick and creamy and it foams up really easily. A little goes a long way with this product. I squeeze like a pea size every time I wash my face. So far, I'm satisfied enough. I didn't experience any breakouts or irritation on my skin. I really wanted this to work because I'm done searching for skincare items. Hopefully this will be my last search.

3. Simple Kind To Skin Micellar Cleansing Wipes

This is also my first time trying this makeup remover wipes. All I can say is I'm loving this makeup wipes! I love the convenience of it and it doesn't irritate my skin too. It's formulated without alcohol that can upset your skin, so that's good. The wipes are not heavily saturated, they feel as if almost dry but they aren't. They manage to do a great job removing the makeup. I think it's reasonably priced for 25 wipes. What say you?

I love it and I will purchase it again because it's so convenient! I sometimes come home late from work (usually 11 at night), I don't have enough time because once I got back, I need to get ready for school the next morning. So, that's when the makeup wipes comes in handy! I just pull one out from the pack, remove my makeup and I'm done. What a time-saver! Highly recommend if you're a busy bee or just lazy.

4. Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water 

I have talked about this product in my skincare routine post HERE, I'm still using it and will continue to use it because it makes such a darn good job removing my makeup. Like hundred percent, spotless. I'm really impressed with it, it doesn't break me out or irritate my skin. Overall just a great product. This has been a staple in my skincare routine and always been a constant for me. Totally a must have!

5. Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Soothe Lotion

I don't have any idea how much I have repurchased this baby. It has been my trusted and go-to lotion for a quite some time now. So, I have an oily skin on the face, right? But it's a different story for the rest of my body parts. I have a quite dry skin especially on my hands, arms, legs and thighs. This lotion is just a lifesaver for me. It's great for the hydration and moisture that my body needs. I love that the lotion is not sticky and greasy whatsoever. It leaves the skin feeling smooth and supple. And most noteworthy, it heals my dry patches that I have had (not by choice) for so long!

If you love the smell of aloe vera, this has a mild aloe vera smell to it that fades away after 10-15 minutes of application but retain its moisture all day long. I love it, this lotion is an ultimate bae for me. Highly recommend if you have severe dry skin, plus, it won't burn a hole in your pocket ;)
