Re-posting because this is super important!!
Its almost summer and this is a serious topic ladies and gentlemen, Sunscreen. Scientific evidence supports the benefits of using sunscreen to minimize short-term and long-term damage to the skin from the sun’s rays. Here is a quick list of sunscreen you can buy


Anthelios XL Ultra-light SPF 50+

I use this one, I find it isn’t to oily or greasy. I find that I can easy add it to my beauty routine.  It’s extremely lightweight has fast absorbing formula. It doesn’t leave the white residue some sunscreens do and I can apply it under my makeup.

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF 50+

I think this is the perfect way to incorporate sunscreen into your daily beauty routine. Having sunscreen in your CC cream you received all the benefits of a CC with the added bonus of sunscreen.zoom_f538ac997a5121b40159115a6b36f40c00c406c0_1462862533_it_cccream_fair_web


Dermalogica Age Smart Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 50

Great light weight moisturizer adsorbs really quickly into the skin. Perfect for everyday wear as its not a heavy or oily on the skin however, it is the most expensive out of all my recommendations.dermalogica-age-smart-dynamic-skin-recovery-50ml

Stop Sleeping in your Make up

I’ve been there its 5am, it’s been a long night of dancing and drinking. All you want to do now is just lie down and count sheep. We all know that sleeping in makeup is bad for your skin. Yet we all keep doing it but NO we must stop!

Sleeping in makeup is one of the worst things you can do to your skin! It blocks your pores, leaving oils trapped inside. Which guess what ladies…. leads to bacteria build up, breakouts, and enlarged pores!!! Not only that it can cause aging ladies…. aging!!

So next you plan on skipping your skincare routine before bedtime think again.

If you know your gonna have a big one prepare yourself for your lazy self, put makeup wipes/remover and at least a good moisturizer by your bed. So you can at least remove the makeup in bed and do a little skin loving.

The best makeup remover you can use is micellar water. It removes all traces of make-up – even eyeliner and mascara. To get the most out of your micellar water, squirt a generous amount on a soft cotton pad and wipe your face repeatedly until your skin is clean and clear of any traces of dirt and make-up.

Engagement party

What is the protocol for engagement parties?
I don’t think I’m having one but my cousin who recently got engaged is.
Nathan and I have been invited but I don’t know do I need to get a present or not.
Of course I googled the answer and there is no straight answer.
It’s all about how close you are with the person and rah rah rah.
So she is my cousin and of course I love her and I have always looked up to her. We are 6 years apart however her and I were never really close. My sister and her are close. But I don’t know if I’m close enough to get a gift and if we get a gift what do we get?

So many issues to gift or not to gift… And if I gift, what do I gift.

My Wedding – Your Party

I read everywhere that its “My” wedding, my sister and cousin who recently got married and my cousin about to get married all said its MY wedding…

But is it really your wedding?
I can 100% say its not “my” wedding. Yes I am the bride and Yes Nathan will be the groom. But its NOT MY WEDDING.

I like to think of it more as the first party that Nathan and I will host for everyone (also the last). I want to make sure my mum had a good time. My Vietnamese traditions are upheld. The guest partied all night.

I think by thinking of it like this I can sleep at night.

Nathan and I want to have a completely different wedding then what we are planning. Dont get me wrong what we have planned is lovely. But its no beach party.

Nathan and I want to hire a huge mansion on the beach. Do a semi Vietnamese tea ceremony along side a walk down the isle ceremony then just have cocktail style party for the rest of the night and party all weekend.

BUT NO MOTHER SAID NO!

So Instead Nathan and I are having a Big small half fat Vietnamese Wedding.

Nathan and groom’s side will come to the Bride’s house and do the Tea Ceremony ( le vu quy) People then get fed! Nathan and I can then go get photos
typically if Nathan was Viet or Chinese we would go back to his and do tea their too. But he ain’t so I won’t. Also we say its a tea ceremony but we don’t serve tea, we serve COGNAC at 10am. 🙂

Then the reception, we have cut out the church because neither of us are really religious and well my extended family doesn’t really rock up to that. So instead Nathan and I will walk down the isle at the reception SOO they can’t escape it MUHAHAHAHA.

I was forced to invite you, so you’re forced to watch me get married BOOM!
