See

So blurred by my love for you was I
That I couldn't foresee the future
If I had known any better
I would have chosen the harder path
Just so that I could still have you in my life

What The Heart Can Do

The heart gets stronger

And so does the mind

The weak gets softer

And the hard gets tougher

But it's with you that I am

But if it's FOR you that I am more

IMY

I miss you like the sun misses the sky

Existence

I'm only human

Though it may be a weak excuse

To put upon my wrongs

But when it comes to you

I lose all my senses

I forget my responsibilities

I get swept up by your beauty

I get lost in your eyes

I melt in your touch

And I lose myself.. in this other world...

Perfect Dream

I dream of a life where I get to go away with you

To beautiful places where sunsets are ablaze

Where the sea beckons us every second

Where the moon shines down on us

Where the sun glows like a ball of love

Where everything is perfect

Because I am with you

You

On days when I don't get your smile and your warmth, I feel a lil empty inside, a sadness that I cannot explain. 

When I don't feel your your joy, I lose a lil bit of my happiness. 

I feel a lil broken, a pain I cannot describe.

I need you to know that I will always love you and everything about you.

My Happy Place

That happy place

Is when I'm with you

In your arms

Looking at you

Looking at me

That happy place 

Is when I'm comforted by your presence

Where I can feel every bit of you

Even when we're not touching

That happy place

Is when I smell you

When our breaths meet

When we soak in each other's scent

That happy place

Is when you talk

All I can do is listen

And hear every melody in your tone

That happy place 

Is when I have you 

In my heart

And I know I am in yours

That happy place

Is in our other reality 

When I can have you

A 100%

I Need You

I need you

And I can only cry silently about the emptiness I feel in my heart, my soul

My mind is in pain

From memories of your hands holding me, touching me, loving me

From your gaze that reaches into my soul

From your tenderness in everything that you do for me

My heart aches

From not having you in it 

My heart cries

For yours

I need you

So badly

But I can't

Beauty is skin deep

"A girl may not have the best facial features but when her skin is flawless, she's beautiful."

That was my Mama's advice to me back then when I was a teenager. At thirteen, I remember my skin breaking out with pimples on my forehead. She gave me all of these products ie cleanser, toner and moisturizer for me to apply to my skin day and night. Being a lil Mama's girl, I listened to her and I'm very glad I did. It became a routine, that I implemented into my lifestyle. No matter what, I always cleansed my skin and religiously slathered my face with moisturizer and any beauty products that was supposedly good for my skin. Of course, the pimples disappeared and my skin was back to my normal after the teenage hormones settled down. Lol! But I still took care of my skin!

When I got to my twenties, I maintained the ritual of taking care of my skin. Except this time I had added eye cream, masks, anti-wrinkle/aging, sunscreens into my vast collection of skincare products. Hey, prevention is better than cure right? :P

In my mid twenties, I realized that I had to start eating right because facial beauty products can only do so much. I started buying organic foods, eating more and more vegetables and drinking at least 2 liters of water a day.

With the busy lifestyle of being in the entertainment industry, there are days when my skin can get pretty stressed with all the make-up, long hours and strong lighting that I have to endure. It makes it a little bit harder to maintain good skin but I do it relentlessly anyway. And it paid off! Thank goodness. Alhamdulillah.




I start with a good cleanser. I cleanse my face first thing in the morning, and night time before I go to bed. Of course, on days that I have shoots, I will cleanse my face after the shoot. Best to stay away from heavy make-up.



Right after cleansing, I apply toner. This goes on before anything else ie moisturizer, serum, eye gel etc



Like I mentioned earlier on, prevention is better than cure. Its never too early to start making sure your skin doesn't sag down to your chest.



My beloved moisturizer. I'm blessed with dry skin hence why I use moisturizers for dry skin.


I never ever leave out the eye gel/cream. The skin around the eye is the most sensitive hence why you should always take care of it. Eyes are the windows to the soul after all :)



This is essential for everyone. I cannot stress how important it is to protect your skin with sunscreen. I love this particular one especially as it has "skin tone' base on it. On days when I'm not required to wear make up, this is perfect. Its better than having to put on foundation or powder on your face.



This has got to be my favourite product from our Felicity skincare range. The exfoliating face scrub. It smells wonderful, and it scrubs away all those nasty dirt from your face, leaving your skin as smooth as a baby's bottom. I'm in love with this product!



Mama came up with these products a few years ago. My family has always been fans of organic products, making sure that we stay as natural as possible. We have a whole range of other products of course. If you're interested, you can check them out at www.blueoakvalley.com.

Here's to an organic life to us!




Thank you Mama, for the awesome advice!


Organically yours,
