Important Lessons in Life

  • You are responsible for your own happiness, not other people.
  • Is your job your passion? Well done. If it isn't, it's also okay. You can still be happy.
  • Of all things you can learn in college, here are the two most important lessons for career success: how not to be a prick, and public speaking.
  • Your body is your life. If your body is not fit and healthy, you don't have a life. Spend money and time for health.
  • Don't be selfish douche. But also don't worry too much about other people's opinion. Find balance. 
  • Read. You will be smarter, and you can engage in conversations. And probably get laid too.
  • Don't be religious. Be spiritual. Know the difference.
  • Respect science. Your life depends on it.
  • Be nice and courteous to all people. Say thank you and smile to waiters, store staffs, anyone who helps you.
  • Invest in quality friends, not superficial acquaintances.
  • If it is only 3 stories, take the stairs, not elevator.
  • Occasionally, do charity/volunteer work. Not to get rewards in heaven, but to share your blessing. Give because you have received, not because you expect something.
  • Be nice to your parents, lest you regret it when they are gone.
  • You will break someone's heart, and yours by someone else. That's a fact of life. Suck it up.
  • Don't be too serious. We are all dead someday.
  • If you think someone you meet look nice today, say it so. You may just make someone's day.
  • Don't overeat. Cut sugar.
  • Don't bully people. In real life or online.
  • Karma has a powerful weapon. It's called social media.
  • Often times shit happens. Just random. Not because of what you did in the past, or gods hate you. Life has a lot of randomness. Acknowledge it.
  • Often time luck happens. Just random. Not because of what you did in the past, or gods love you. Life has a lot of randomness. Acknowledge it. Stay humble.
Found it so randomly when reading Henry Manampiring and I post it here as a reminder for myself

YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite

Hello there!
Happy Ied Mubarak! I know it's sooo late, but I wish you guys a blissful Ramadhan, and may peaceful be upon us always.

Not really a lipstick girl, but so in to them lately. I guess having mom around is a big deal, (beside she cooks a very good and healthy meals) I can borrow her makeup! :D

So this YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite is actually my mom's. She's been a huge fan of YSL lipstick and lipgloss since I was a little girl. And I've never owned a YSL gloss, only lipstick, so I really want to try this gloss badly. Can it be as pretty as their famous YSL Lipstick?

The answer is YES!

Indeed YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite has a luxurious brightened pink color. Actually you can see the bottle looks pink coral but when I apply it, it becomes more like fuchsia on me. I kind a feel shy wearing this on, because the color is really pigmented in only one swipe!), but it's really great to steal the night when attending a party! 

The formula doesn't dry me out, which is a very important thing, and very comfortable to wear
! The color stays on me about 2-3 hours (it's gloss anyway), and leaves a beautiful stain which perfect for not so into bold lippie like me ;)

Here's my look wearing YSL Gloss Volupte 15 Grenade Pepite
