Thank You!

Hey everyone!
Recently, I am spending more time with myself before my school starts again, that explains why I have wrote 3 posts in 2 days. This post is a little random, I was bored and I started checking out who's following my blog. Excitingly, I found out some snail mail blogs which are really interesting and I think I am going to start bookmarking their blogs and read it often! Thus, I thought I will share some of them with you people!
1) A Peachy Life
I love the layout of the blog when I first entered it! It has a really vintage feeling to it  
and the owner of the blog is JoAnna. She's a fine art student, that's really cool! (Random Fact: I was an art student in Secondary school and when I enter my new school in April, I am going to be an art student again!)  JoAnna posted a lot of lovely pictures about her pen paling adventure which I think snail mailers will like!
2) Lola's Writing Place
The blog belongs to Lola from Belgium and she writes about her life, snail mail and everything!
She received a lot of really nice letters and I like her Christmas post which she shares with everyone what she received for Christmas. And her boyfriend is super sweet!
3) Anna Blogs
Annie is from Russia, I believe. This is another wonderful blog about snail mail and Annie's life in Russia. She has posts on storage ideas, letter writing and many more so take a look at her blog if you could!
I am also taking this opportunity to thank people, strangers and friends who read my blog!
I really appreciate it!
I am also out of blogs to read so if anyone have good recommendations (even your own blog), please email me to tell me about it or comment below if you don't mind.
Thank YOU!

Life Updates!

Just some photos on what I am up to lately!
One of my favourite foods! MUSHROOMS!
Portobellos especially!
I will have them with crepes for breakfast.
I like the natural taste of it so I will just drizzle some Olive Oil and sprinkle some mixed herbs and pepper salt.
They taste so good!
Ice-creams with my friends!
Am I the only one who like these chocolate eggs?
They are adorable!
Actually I just like the surprise feeling of getting the toy, the chocolate is honestly way too sweet!
I'm a dark chocolate person, are you?

So much childhood memories!
My favourite candies when I was a kid!

Shopping for Katie!
I'm in wonderland!
Katie's Package!
It's not in a box because there aren't things in it that will break.
Katie and I both love Florals!
Lastly, a photo of me and my besties!
Guys, I am really bad at taking photos!
I am definitely not photogenic, whenever i take photos with my phone, I will not know where to look at. I will just look into the screen instead of the camera eye.
Have A Lovely Weekend!


Christmas in March

Hey everyone!
I hope everyone is doing well!
Lately, other than being busy about the admission into a new school, I am also gathering stuffs for my first biggest swap!
My swap partner,Katie ,and I have been wanting to do the swap since last year (September).
But there were several problems, the postage was really expensive, even more expensive than the products we got for one another.
Now finally, we are capable of doing the swap after a bit of saving! 
Thus, this post is all about the package Katie have sent me!
I will reveal what I've sent her after she have received my package.
What is the package about?
We are getting one another things we cannot find in our countries.
Katie wanted some stationeries from Singapore and I wanted to try out some cosmetics from USA.
Here's what Katie got me:
When I got the package, I was so excited and silly me started screaming! I have no idea what Katie have gotten for me but I am sure I will love everything!
Maybelline's Mascara! I have seen many beauty gurus using this and I am excited to try it out!
Wet&Wild's Lip Gloss.
I haven't seen this lip gloss before but I really like the colour!

Milani's Eyeshadow Crayon
This is my first time having an eyeshadow crayon, I may need to check out how to use it! (HAHAHA)

L'oreal's Magic Souffle Blush!
I love souffles and I love blush!

Maybelline's Colour Tattoo!
OMG! I love this a lot and the colour is brilliant, we have colour tattoos in Singapore but I haven't seen this colour before!

Elf's Little Black Book
I honestly have no idea how to start using this palette, there are just so many colours!
But no worries, I will just experiment with it!

Revlon's Enchanted Eyeshadow quads

Revlon Photoready Sculpting Blush
I heart this one and I am excited to use it!

Milani Brow Fix Kit

I specially requested Katie to get me these Baby Lips lip balm as I really want to try them out!
And I love it! I use them daily when I go work out, shopping and everywhere!
They smell really good too!

Wet and Wild Eyeshadows

Bath and Body Works Hand sanitizer
Here's another thing I requested Katie to get for me!
Just like the Baby Lips, I bring one of these babies eveywhere with me!
I am obsessed with them!!!
Happy Booster Blush
This is just beautiful!
I love them ( I love everything Katie have gotten me!)

Revlon's Cream Blush!
I am so excited to use this as cream blush feels lighter on skin especially in Singapore!
It's so warm here in Singapore. (i love it!)

Rimmel's Bronzer!
I want to tell Katie that she's so generous and kind!
I never never never expect her to send me so many things!
I love everything she have sent me,really!
I will use them as often as I could!
I will cherish everything and I am so grateful!
I am truly so fortunate to have her as my pen pal and to let me try out things I may never be able to try out in my life.
Right now, I honestly don't know if what I've gotten for her is enough because she sent me so many things! It's just like Christmas in March!
But I truly hope she will like what I have sent her!

Letters Update (March 2013)

Hi everyone!
It's been awhile since I last updated my blog, the last post was in January and it's March already! The third month of 2013! Time flies!
Things haven't been going right for me for the past two months, it's so dramatic that I could hardly digest it.
What happened?
1) My grandmother was ill and needed an operation.
2) My vacation to China was cancelled.
3) My Laptop was having some problems.
4) I have graduated from my Secondary School (high school) and now I'm applying for a new school. There are so many complicated procedures and orientations to attend. *sigh*
Finally, things are going a little smoother in my life and I am beginning to settle down in 2013.
Thus, here's my first Letter Update of the year 2013.
Letters Update (Incoming)
Letter from Akiyo (Japan) and I always love receiving stamps from Japan.
They are really adorable!
Pikachu! I used to love it when I was a child.
Akiyo sent me a several postcards as well and they are really lovely!

Harry Potter and the chamber of secrets postcard!

Another postcard with cute duckies illustrations.
A letter and a friendship wristband from Megan (New Zealand).

A letter from Marian (USA),
I always love her handmade envelope and the quotes she enclosed in the letter.
She is an amazing, really down-to-earth person and she updates her blog almost everyday.
I believe you guys will love her blog so visit it when you are free.
A letter from my new pen pal, Michelle (USA).
She's another wonderful blogger and I look forward to writing to her!

She sent me a Valentine's Day Card and I kept smiling to myself when I received it.
It's really beautiful.
The lovely quote on the card (:
And Michelle included some teabags in the mail too!  

Here's a package from Louise(UK).
We chat online almost everyday and she's like my best bud.
We have decided to send one another packages according to theme monthly and the theme for last month was "Floral".
Thus, she sent me a package with items related to floral.

A letter fro Louise.

And the items she got me for the theme, "Floral".
She got me a pair of chopsticks with floral prints, a daffodils cross stitch set, a roll of floral ribbon and two packs of flower scrapbooking decorations.
According to Louise, daffodils are the flowers that bloom in Spring/Summer in UK, thus, she got me the cross stitch set.

A thank you card to Tiia (Finland), both the card and envelope are made by Marian and given to me.

A letter to Megan(New Zealand) and of course, I have included some goodies for her.

A letter to Akiyo (Japan) with a distressed Moustache.

A letter to Bree (Malaysia).
A letter to Marian.

A letter to Louise (UK).
And for Louise, the theme for this month is "Sweet".
I have prepared a package for her filled with something sweet and I can't reveal what is in it yet.
Theme of the month for Louise.
A letter and a postcard for Moe (China).  
My first Chinese pen pal!
 I cannot remember if I have mentioned this before, I love writing in Chinese despite not being able to remember all the Chinese characters.
I have to use a Chinese dictionary everytime I write to Moe but I enjoy doing it!
The stamp on Moe's postcard and my chinese handwriting!

Have a great week ahead, everyone!
