Baby Nazran

Today is Acha's birthday and also her youngest brother's birth day!
Welcoming my parent's sixth grandchild, Nazran <3

So happy and relieved the surgery went well for both the mom and son. Alhamdulillahirabbil'alamin...
And I should say  a lot of thanks to friends, even people on twitter who helped me on getting the blood for the transfusion. Jaakumullah khairan katseera :)

My Lip's Soulmate

In order to not be like me in term of choosing lipsticks, i present to y'all this post.

Let's say, i have more than ten lipsticks in a various colour: dark plum, nude, red, pink, terracotta, peach, etc and more than a half of it make me grumble 'what the heck i was thinking back then, this colour really doesn't suit me!!!' - yes I definitely need guide to choose the best colour for my skin tone. I did some research (no, basically i just google it) and find this, the best advice comes from Bobbi Brown:

"If I had to teach someone just one thing about lip color it would be this: Find a lipstick that looks good on your face when you are wearing absolutely no makeup." 

(Bobbi Brown, "Beauty")

Happy Hunting soulmate for your lips!

Beauty Review: Hada Labo

Welcome (again) to my beauty review post!
Now the product I'm going to review is... *drum rolls*

Hada Labo!

At first i was questioning 'what kind of product...' yess because i always use same products for over years (guess what I have such an amazing loyalty toward brand) and idk why I just want to try it.

I'm currently using the night cream and Skin Aqua. So the story began when i was shopping with my mom and we're at the make up section, i suddenly got attracted by some new product display and then the SPG came and the rest of story is so easy to guess (Every advertiser/ marketeer/ marcomm always try their hard not to fall for a sales promotion campaign. I'm one of them. Er, no?) because of her little speak-speak i finally purchased it.

Soo... first night i tried this product was 3 days ago, and in the morning my skin became more like shabby shabby marshmallow (a burnt marshmallow. If you know what i mean XD ) and it's super moisture! And i use the Skin Aqua for make up base before i apply bb cream, and it's quite good. I also use it on my palm. Overall this product is good. It accommodates the consumer's need: Whitening, moisturising, or anti-aging. Worth to try, and just see the results after a month!

Change Yourself

Changing Your Life is Hard.
Doing it by yourself is harder.

Those sentences will 'welcome' us when we enter the 43things site. I knew this site from Alanda Kariza's  Instagram account where she posted a picture, a screenshot from her phone and it appeared to be an email sent from 43things. Written in the email is her goal, and i realised that the site can reminds us about our goal in a particular time like once in a month, a year, or next year. I said to myself, 'I will definitely submit goals in this site!!!'

I'm that kind-of-person who have so many goals, dreams, resolution, bucket-list etc that is always been updated in some periodic time like New Year, New semester, or new week.

When it's new year = Okay let's make 2013 resolution!
When it's new semester = Okay let's make some goals! I should achieve something this semester!
When it's new week = let's see... let's write every possible schedule for a week. No plans yet? just fill it up... weekly planner is not that serious, y'all know...

...and turn out I am that kind-of person who have so many goals, dreams, resolution, bucket list etc who tends to just forget or break it. I made a list, yes. But it will end up to be just A LIST.
Even, most of time that list end up to be some kind of decoration in the wall, in my desk, and in my planner X)

Maybe there's a lot of people out there do and feel the same thing like me, and these problems are read by the people behind the 43things. Sometimes we already know what is should and must be done to be more productive, creative, and not go wasted. But sometimes we also need a reminder, that could help us and pull us back to the right path.

Here, 43things give us so many options like 'my resolution', 'what i'm doing', 'what i want' and 'what i've done'. As you all know that I've read Alanda Kariza's Dream Catcher and inside it there's a chapter talking about bucket list. Bucket list is like a list contains with many things we should really do before we die. And sir yess sir, I copy everything on my list to 43things. I need to be reminded often, so i set the reminder in 'once a month'.

Above all, I thank Allah that I finally realised that being reminded is important (as a human we're so easy to forget, most of the time) and Thank Allah there's such a site that can operates as a friend, boyfriend, or who else BUT never forget and tired of reminding us.

43things has became the site you should open and don't forget to make account! Plus, don't forget to search my account: taniailyas... Good luck changing youself, peeps!

note: Coincidence or what, my friends Hawin ask me about the meaning of 'La Petite Imparable' while I'm writing this post haha.  I guess all nocturnal person would agree that: this kinda hour is just the best time to write or read something.
