Happy new year, gorgeousness! I'm sorry it took this long for me to publish this post. I'm not going to make this like a tradition on my blog amd I'm not restricted to this yearly but I guess let's have fun and challenge ourselves! My friend, Syaza, made one of her version and it was amazing! I can relate loads of them.

Without me rambling on too much, here's my 2018 in alphabetical order.

A | Amalina. No, I'm not talking about the song. It's my name. My real name. I used to hate it when people call me by my full name because I'm so used to people calling me 'Lenne'. Last year was different. Maybe it's time for me to accept that my name is unique too. 'Amalina' sounded so distinct to both of my ears but I kinda like it.

B | Belong. You are not anyone's property. I have learned the hard way. And if it's not belong to be, it's not going to. Do not force it.

C | Checkout. The year of clicking 'Checkout' button on an online store. The amount of money I spent online is illogical.

D | District 21. For my international readers, this is only fathomable by my fellow Malaysian readers. If you are Malaysian, you would know what I'm talking about. I went to District 21 last year and that was the first time I had set my foot in there. It was a great experience to overcome my fear of height! Planning on going there again this year.

E | E-mail. Collaboration e-mail to be exact. I have gotten so much e-mail asking for a collab but you know I do not do collab that much if they're not up to my standard. So I have to politely decline and please know that I appreaciate all of you. Maybe some other time! xx

F | Fried chicken. The (third) love of my life.

G | Goodbye. A year that I swear filled with so much goodbyes. It's crazy how this life is just a stopover.

H | Hello. A year that was also filled with lots of new hello. I can see quite a number of fresh faces in my life last year. It was awesome. This also applies to the new skincare that I picked up. I honestly said "Hello, welcome to my collection."

I | Independence. Taught a heck lot last year. I studied myself more than anything and this is how I survived. Woah, it's crazy the changes that a year makes.

J | Judge. I do not give a single damn about other people no more. You wear whatever you want to wear, you say whatever you want to say, you act like how the hell you want to act. In hopes of people would do the same thing for me. You do you, Imma do me.

K | Kitchen. I admit, I do not cook as much. Cooking is not my forte. However, last year it was like a playground to me where I tried bunch of recipes and not to mention, I baked! It's crazy! I'm such an adult now, huh? #MommyAreYouProud?

L | Liquid eyeliners. I have been buying liquid eyeliners non-stop but none of them ended up being fleaked out on my lids as I would show them to the world how snatched my winged liner is. I'm over it! I chose black eyeshadow to recreate the winged liner effect. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. 

M | Mother-in-law. Nope. Not happening. Not last year. This year? Pray for me!


N | Needy. I cannot emphasize enough how needy I am around the persons I love. This is totally one of my biggest flaw. Will I change it? Kinda yea, kinda nope.

O | OK. How I 'professionally' end every argument  and run from my mistakes and prolly my most used word.

P | Pause. It was a year of slowing down, take a little timeout, take a moment, pause and reflect before continuing anything. "Just take a moment, breathe and none of this will be remembered if you are rushing it." I said to myself over and over again like a mantra.

Q | Quality over quantity. I'm prolly one of those people who has like 5 friends. Maybe 6. Regardless, I like my small circle and I'm happy this way.

R | Research. Definitely the year of doing boatload of skincare reasearch! I'm so excited to learn something new every damn time. Doesn't it intrigued you and called you to do you own reasearch as why some companies would put one ingredient in a mouthwash and the same thing winds up in a toner?

S | Stress. I'm hundred percent sure I'm just stressed out not depressed. It's not that deep. You should learn the difference too.

T | Thank you, next. Honestly the only thing I have been listening to since it's came out. So so so good! Kudos to you, Ariana. 

U | Us. 'Us' that I miss so much.

V | Vivy Yusof. Who doesn't want her life? Can we like exchange bodies for a week or two, Vivy? She is such a role model. Her IG story is the only thing I look forward to every day!

W | Waistline. I without a doubt have reduced few inches from my waistline measurement throughout 2018. It's crazy what stressing out can do to you.

X | Xx. My typical way to end sentences and it's cute, right? #PleaseTellMeItsCute

Y | Yellow. It was my last year's color. I surely had so many pieces with at least a little yellow on them. I wonder what is my color this year..

Z | Zoella. I was a fan because she was so relatable back then but not anymore. When I found out she has been living happily by scamming other people, ugh it baffles me! Thank god for drama channels on YouTube, right? Sorry Zoella, not supporting your brand anymore.

How's your 2019 so far? Any good feelings or the other way around? Tell me in the comments! xx
