Bucketlist: A Trekking Trip

So..I’m not gonna lie..I am extremely afraid of heights!!! Yes guys! I am! Super afraid! And you know what? I also have a phobia of water! Exactly. But, last year, I overcame that phobia by going for a scuba diving trip!! And blimey, am I alive now!


The thing about your fears is that they’re all in your mind!! You think you’re afraid of it, but in reality, you’re not really…! Am I making any sense? Well..what I am trying to say is…you just need 20 seconds of courage…JUST 20 SECONDS OF COURAGE TO DO SOMETHING CRAZY, and believe me, SOMETHING GOOD WILL COME OUT OF IT!!!!!


So..what i am going to do is..overcome my fear of height! And how exactly am I going to do that? By going on a trekking trip! That’s right, y’all!! A TREKKING TRIP TO NEPAL!!!!! I am super excited about it!

In fact, I have already booked the trekking trip and it is scheduled this June/July! So if i don’t blog after june/july, you’ll know why i won’t be ever able to blog! :p Haha!







So that is what it’s gonna be like..except, there wouldn’t really be any snow! :p I will keep you guys posted on this aspect though!

But you know guys, before attempting this crazy stunt that I am about to, I need to actually get my gear ready!



I’ve got pretty much everything ready except sunglasses, a selfie stick and some waterproof matches. I wonder where I would be able to find those matches!! Gosh!! Do you guys know where I could find them?


And selfie stick is definitely a must! I mean, let’s get real..who else would take our own pics? :p


And the scariest part…sunglasses. I mean, I am completely aware that for a trek, we need to wear a sporty kind of pair…you know what I mean?


Wearing aviators or some cat-eye glasses to a trek is going to pretty disastrous, if you know what i mean?

I was actually googling some brands which sells sporty sunglasses, and came across Oakley!



I mean, I always knew about this brand. It’s just that it never appealed to me for I’m not exactly a sporty person, you know? But now that I’ve got no choice, I have to get them! And Omgosh!! Just look at them…aren’t they freaking sexy?


And yes, I am talking about both the shades and the man wearing the shades! :p Aren’t they both sexy? :p So I am kind of looking for somthing similar!

The prices are super crazy though!!! We’re talking about at least $800 here!! Gosh!!! Why are they so expensive??? :o


But like you guys know, I am a crazy discount shopper, and so I decided to try my luck at Zalora. And blimey!!! I found a very similar pair for just $300!! Can you believe it? *Thank youuuuu internet!!!* So I am gonna see if I can place my order there! :p

So that’s what’s going on in my life…tryna complete my bucket list!! :p


How about you guys? Have you ever attempted a crazy stunt before? Have you ever been on a trekking trip before? :o Is it scary? What essentials am i forgetting? :o I know there will be river rafting involved… OH DEAR LORD! :(

Textured Nails

You know guys, over the years, nail polish and nail art community (ok, so probably there is really no such  “community”..but maybe there is? NOBODY KNOWS!) has stepped up their game! Gone are the days when having simple manicured nails was “the thing!”


You know, nail art came into picture, and then matt nails, then shutter (or crackled) nails, and then, gel nails…and now, textured nails. That’s right, y’all! I wonder what’s gonna be next in trend? The nail-less nails? Yeah imagine!! The next trend would be to completely have no nails. That sounds really creepy, and weird, but so does… “fur nails!”. No kidding, there are such nails. Or my personal hated-nails, THE FEATHER NAILS! I mean, if I wanted feather nails, I might as well be a crow.


(Above: Fur Nails… Purple fur? Seriously…? I mean, you have absolutely no excuse to wear such nails unless you’re that purple weird dinosaur ….that Barney animal who could talk..)




(And just look at these!! I refuseeee to even address these things.. (or whatever nonsense they’re called!)..OKAY SERIOUSLY? SERIOUSLY? IS SHE PLANNING TO MATE WITH Chewbacca? (*feels sick*)




But with that being said, not all textured nails are bad! You know my personal favourite are those caviar beads by Ciate! Let me show you some of them!

So..I loveee Ciate! I love how unique they are…they almost look delicious, don’t they?




And you know, if you do not wish to go for a textured look, then you could always use their plain colours.




I honestly prefer Ciate to OPI and Essie. Why? Simply because of the quality of their nail polishes! But you know what are the perks of living in Singapore? Everything here is marked up!! At Sephora, a Ciate nail paint pot costs $34!!! CRAZYY!!!!! I might as well buy a Chanel Nail polish for $50!

But…not all hope is gone! Recently I discovered that I could buy Ciate Nail polish online from Zalora.


And guess what? It only costs $16!!! (as compared to $34 in Sephora!!!). Dang, it’s more than 50% cheaper.


At the moment, they do not have a huge range of Ciate Nail paint. That’s the only downside though. But with that being said, the selected paints and kits they have are all we really need. Seriously. No unnecessary fur..no unnecessary feather. Do check their collection out!


And nowwww, I am going to show you some of my favourite nail arts for spring/summer!
