Electric Run

One of the things that I like to do or my friends and I would like to do is joining the fun run, and I am saying FUN run, it has got some twist in it that makes the whole experience more unique in my opinion, and I am down for it. Staying active is as important as getting 8 hours of sleep every night (if I could) for me. Although I get a lot of comments on how skinny I am and yet I still like to go for a morning run or going to the gym and whatnot, to be honest, I don’t do this to lose weight. First, I do not gain weight because I have an extremely bored metabolism that knows nothing but to let go of everything I ate the second it hits down my throat (well, not literally but you know what I mean), second I do this because it is fun and it makes me happy plus the benefits I am getting. It is like fuel to my system that keeps me going and makes me feel good about ME.

It was a 5 km night run around the lush Yas Gateway Park with colourful decorative street lights and loud music all over the place. The after party was also epic with a lovely and ridiculously good looking DJ, of course, I am not posting pictures of me actually dancing because that would be too embarrassing. The participants are all from various age groups; there are families with cute kids, massive group of friends and adorable lovers as well. The idea got me thinking and inspired me to promise myself that I am so bringing my children to run with me someday, YES SOMEDAY.

Skin Care

img_2169img_2180img_2181img_2185

My Top 7 Skin Care Products:

  1. Clinique Liquid  Facial Soap
  2. Bioderma Sensibio H2O – helps to remove any left over products from washing alone
  3. Sephora Wrinkle – fighting Super Serum
  4. Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel
  5. Orogold 24K Cell Renewal Night Cream
  6. Kiehl’s Powerful Wrinkle Reducing Eye Cream
  7. Mario Badescu Drying Lotion – let the pink particles settle down and use a cotton bud to take it and apply directly on your pimples, this thing works wonders!

Taking care of your skin is as necessary as not skipping a meal or keeping hydrated on a hot sunny day. I mean, it’s vitally needed in an obvious possible way. I have noticed that over the time as we age whether we like to acknowledge it or not, it’s happening! Our skin is starting to experience or display stuff that wasn’t there before. And by stuff, I meant, rank pimples, overdue scars from previous pimples, bigger pores, uneven skin tone, lines and wrinkles around the eyes and laugh lines. The list is going to go on and on, and it is tough, real tough! At least for me, it’s definitely real for me. I am so near to 30 now, and I’ve got multiple skin issues way more than my OTHER issues. Haha! So regardless of how time-consuming it is and how pricey things can turn to be, I’m down for it, and I don’t mind.

These goes with you too; PLEASE take the time to remove your makeup before going to bed if you do wear or even just a moisturizer and powder on, just remove any product from your face and wash it off with water and soap. Having all these products that have chemicals on your face for the day time is too much for your skin to handle and for it to breath let alone keeping it for 24 hours round! It will cause you loads of skin problems, (top on the list, pimples) that you may not see now but eventually, you will especially when you pass teenage life. There isn’t really a way we could stop it, but at least we can do something to prevent or to delay it a bit. I just wish I knew this before then probably my wrinkles not be appearing at this early stage. But well, it’s here now and no reason to mourn about it. This post went off quite ranting once again. HAHA.

These are just a few of my skin care routine. Of course, if you’re wearing makeup you have to remove it first with a makeup remover, either with wipes, cream or in liquid form before you proceed washing to attain the actual aim, REMOVING. Face mask, exfoliating mask, treatment, and facials once in a while are perfect as well. I hope this was helpful!

PS: Daily default – sunscreen, tons of water and at least 6-8 hours of sleep

Thank you for stopping by. May you have a pleasant day or evening. And don’t forget to smile! xx

Homemade Hot Chocolate♥

Hi, guys! I wanted to share with you on how to make my version of hot chocolate. It’s perfect for the cold weather and couldn’t think of any more relatable time than today. You’ll beat Starbuck’s overpriced one, I’m telling you. Haha! So, we’re doing this.

Here are the ingredients:

  • fresh milk
  • nutella
  • whipped cream
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg ground/peanut butter
  • mini marshmallows

Here’s how you do it:

Low heat, in a saucepan, heats up a 3/4 cup of fresh milk, stir until the sides of the pan become fizzy then add a tablespoon of nutella and continuously stir until it’s completely melted into the milk. Now you can add a copious amount of ground nutmeg or teaspoon of peanut butter whichever you fancy and give it a stir once more. Maintain the low heat because you do not want it to be boiling. Make sure everything was incorporated then pour it into your mug; drop few mini marshmallows or more according to your preference, top it off with whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon and you’re done! It’s that easy. You can use chocolate chips as toppings also but if you don’t want to add more evil sugar-do as you like. Enjoy, and you’re welcome!
