5 Rules I Live By To Live A Happy Life

As I navigate through life, I have picked up some life lessons that I now live by. I have actually listed about 25 of them, but I thought I'd break them into smaller chunks, or else this post is going to be a really long one. 

Thinking that I am not ready - Nobody is ever a 100% ready for the opportunities that come knocking at our doors. But I truly believe that the best opportunities are those that stretch and challenge us beyond our limits and make us anxious a little. I am a firm believer that a little bit of anxiousness is always good, as it means that I care and those opportunities mean something or a lot to you.

Kinky Boots the Musical, London West End

Well, it was definitely around Christmas last year when I watched Aladdin the Musical at the London West End.

On reflection, I sometimes think I do take things for granted knowing that the West End is just there and that I could easily get tickets without having to plan very much well in advance.

And that is exactly what happened during the last Summer Bank Holiday weekend when I woke up feeling like I should take full advantage of the long weekend and do something. After a few messages exchanged with my friend, Sue, we agreed to head out into town to watch Kinky Boots the Musical.

Five Things I Love In Autumn

It seems that one is not a blogger unless one professes his/her love for Autumn season. Quite frankly, I am more of a lover of Spring. Blooming flowers, longer days, the prospect of summer, what is there not to love about Spring.

Having said that, I do see the attractions of Autumn. So today, I thought I'd share five things that I love about it.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Italy

It only took me about 12 years of living in London before I finally get a chance to see the Leaning Tower of Pisa right in front of my eyes. Every time I make a trip to Italy, I always had Pisa in mind. Unfortunately, it was either not within the vicinity of the area that I was visiting, or we are short of time to squeeze it in, despite knowing that Pisa is a rather small town with the main attraction being the Leaning Tower. 

So when I visited Florence at the end of July this year, I made a point that I will make a pit stop at Pisa so I could tick it off from my list of places to visit.

The One Beauty Item That I Can't Live Without - Foundation

Each of us has one beauty item that we can't live without and that item is often personal and unique to the said individual. Because, no two people are the same, and more importantly, we all have different needs.

It got me thinking recently about what is the one item that I consistently have in my beauty stash? A must have to make me feel human, complete, finished, ready to face the world and doesn't make me feel naked when I leave the house. 

For some, it could be a mascara, and for others, it could be a lipstick. For me, it's the foundation. It definitely is a must have for me and no matter how late I am, and how desperate I needed to dash out the door, I have to put on the foundation and get my base done. 

So today, I thought I would share the four foundations that I currently have in my beauty drawer. While there is one firm favourite, I do reach out for different ones depending on the finished look that I am after, how my skin feels at that particular moment and the season of the year. 

So here are my top four favourites at the moment, starting with my firm favourite!
