My life through photos

Hi beautiful ladies. I just basically had to take a step back as I was seriously loosing my sh*t.  Thanks to good friends, a listening husband, lots of sad music, going for swims, and the cuddles from my lovable Oscar, I managed to cope with the death of my sister in law and keep plodding along.

So just a quick update about my life. I am switching jobs and now officially work for Lush Cosmetics. I'm super excited about my new adventures with them, and very very eager to immerse myself into the beautiful world of Lush.  I am currently working two jobs, still helping the hubs with his record label as he needs, and trying to start up a mobile beauty service with a friend. So as you can see, I enjoy being busy.  The idleness from my depression after the death was literally killing me.  So onwards and upwards, as I know Lilian would have wanted me to do.

I have a load of photos to share with you...just a glimpse into my life these past few weeks. So enjoy:)

Beautiful church I walk past everyday to work

First time at Harriets with friends

Hope Santa brings this to me for Christmas

I have that top (or a similar variation of it, and I want that necklace BAD!)

Thanks to my skilled father in law for making this shelf unit out of the IKEA Ribba Frame for me. friends is my Chanel nail polish collection. I just can't get enough!

I had no idea I walked past this everyday to work! This is the English literature major nerd in me coming out :p

Chanel Malice with Rococo Gold Leaf on top

Can't say much about these products, but this is my Beauty Bible testing products. I'm really enjoying this testing process

Sorry that I don't have much energy to really go into detail about any one thing in particular. I think it's going to take me a bit more to get back into the swing of things, but it felt so long that I left this blog idle, so I really wanted to feed it with some more content and let you all know that I'm ok. Thank you to all my friends and followers who have been so kind to leave me messages.  It was that kind of positivity that really reminded me that life does go on even after a devastating event.

See you all soon, and I will just apologise in advance that there might be an onslaught of Lush reviews in the next few months lol.

Take it ez everyone xxx

To my dear older sister

Good morning to all my readers. I am in need of some time away from blogging. Last night, I learned that my older sister/ex sister in law, whom I dearly loved was murdered.  This is what horror movies of made of, but unfortunately for me, this isn't a movie.  So obviously, I can't even function properly let alone blog, but I wanted to dedicate this post to Lilian.

I am going through all the usual emotions of losing someone you love, but I need to compose myself and pull myself together as I'm about to go do a car boot sale for a local cat charity, and I can't be arriving in tears. I don't know how I'm going to do it, but I think that I need to stay strong and focus on all the good memories and the positive things that she brought into my life.  This is my mental though process right now, even though my heart is broken and I can't stop the tears as I'm writing this.  She would have wanted me to be strong, because that's the kind of strength she had inside of her.

I met Lilian when I was 16 years old.  It was during a time where I was a lost and misguided child and she embraced me like her own sister.   On a very trivial level, she was the first person to ever buy me designer shoes, which gave birth to my love for fashion and all things beauty related.  But on a more serious level, she was a role model to me. She was career oriented, strong, assertive, and fearless. She thought me what a strong Asian female was like. I would not be half the person I am today without learning that, and I learned it from her.  For that, I have always loved her, irregardless of what happened between her and my brother.  She was like a proper older sister to me.  I have so many little memories of her that fill my head right now, but that is the one thing that she has done for me.  I wish I could have done more for her.

So this post is dedicated to you Lilian.  May your spirit move on and not stay within that home, and I hope that you were truly happy inside before that tragic night happened.  I love you so much. I will never forget you...never.
