Oh my, it's been a week since I've last updated.
Eeks. How time has flown! The last week was melodramatic (for me at least) and during this time I've read lots of quotes and also learn to look at the brighter side of life. Here are some of my favorites;

"Let the right one in. Let the old dreams die. Let the wrong ones go." quotes__x

"The only person who is truly holding you back is you. No more excuses, it's time to change. It's time to live life at a new level!" ROMEOandJULIET

"Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like" - Will Smith.

and also,
"Buy what you need, not what you want." - Anonymous.

This month's project 10 pan will be slightly delayed because I have some things that are finishing up (few more washes!) and I'm ready to post them up! Expect them soon ya!

Have a great weekend everybody!

Project 10 Pan.. Updates (1)

I realised over the course of project 10 pans, the items that I usually finish are skin care items and moisturisers and an occasional lip balm. Rarely are there makeup items and therefore I think I will draw up a list of makeup items that needs to be finished here.

Ready, Set, Go!

1. Clinique All Over Color in Peony
2. Beauty Treats Mosaic Highlighter
3. Lioele Waterdrop BB
4. Estee Lauder eyeshadow in Sand Dollar & Brown Sugar (already hit pan but focusing on finishing the shadow entirely)
5. Red Earth Perfect Line Eyeliner
6. Shu Uemura Lip Duo Tint & Gloss (had this for ages!)
7. Maybelline Lip Smooth in Cinnamon
8. NYX Round Lip Gloss in Whipped
9. NARS Lipgloss in Turkish Delight
10. Dunhill EDP in 51.3N
11. EGO QV Lip Balm in SPF 20

This does kind of sound like the things I use daily and I guess you're right because I'm always pressed for time and my makeup is usually done the same way because I know it will make me look good on the go. I even just put this items on the desk and touch nothing else until one of them finishes. It's kind of great cause you don't get distracted and use something else and forget about a makeup item and most importantly, not disrupting the rate of your makeup items finishing! :D Genius eh? *Pats self on back*

I know it's pretty hard to stick to one product but what gets me motivated is when I finish this item I can go to my stash and open another similar item! ie: When I finish a bottle of foundation I go to my stash and open another foundation to play with :D

Oh and that achievement feeling when you've finished a product? I thrive on that to keep me motivated too!

Alright. That's all for today's post. What are your ways to be motivated to finish off your products? Do share!

Review: Nivea Creme

Look at how time flies eh, it's mid October already! And fast forward a few more weeks we'll be looking at the end of the year and singing Auld Lang Syne to this year (That's why I do every year end :D) and fret about getting a year older and all.. Man I miss this year already!

And yes, sorry for the long disappearance again and there is no excuse I know. So here I am with a treat for you guys, a review on Nivea Creme!

Credits Here

The iconic blue tin and creamy white cream has been around for so long that they are passed through generations. I remember the smell of Nivea Creme in the house in my younger days but it wasn't until recently when I was looking for a pick-me-up after a long jogging session that I picked this up after debating whether I really need this or just buying it cause I need a pick-me-up.

Needless to say I pick it up.

I have the biggest conflict about this cream, my hands love it and I don't fancy the smell. I mean it's tolerable because I just slap it on and go to sleep. But that is exactly what is stopping me from repurchasing the cream. I like my moisturisers that I use on my body daily to be non scented or lightly scented and Nivea's.. is kind of heavily scented for me ): So that's a minus one.

However.. my skin, or rather my hands love it and I always wake up to beautifully soft skin the next day or when you've been drinking and your whole body is dried up like a prune? I slap on Nivea Creme and my hands just drink it up and becomes softer. So it does work! And works fast too! And because of Nivea Creme, I don't have dry scaly hands anymore! So that's a plus one.

Hmm.. so does this make me want to repurchase this creme? Considering I've just finished it yesterday.. Hmm.. Maybe not. I still have tonnes of moisturisers to go through so it'd probably be awhile before I come around to repurchase this.

Have you ladies tried Nivea Creme? What's you take on it? Do let me know in the comments! Thanks & have a great day! :D

Poll: Do you put dates on your makeup?

Okay, hands up for people who does the same thing as me? Like stick dates of opening on the bottle of the makeup on a certain date to know how much is left, and measure again after a few days how much usage is already used? Or writing dates of opening on the item? Anybody? Please don't tell me I'm alonee )):
