New Year Resolutions 2016 ♥

This year was pretty exciting I guess. I went to many places, my style changed and achieved some new experiences, milestones, etc. But a new year always feels uneasy for me; like a reminder that time is always moving forward, changes are bound to happen and everyone gets older by the year. What's done is done. Nevertheless, I want to write my new years resolution for things I want to achieve by the end of 2016. I tend not to make resolutions because I'm the type of person that lives in the present. It's kind of nerve-racking trying to expect the unexpected, so I tend to not think about it. The future is scary stuff. But I think it's about time I take control of what I want rather than let it all happen as it is. There's a lot of things I want to achieve by next year that I am honestly looking forward to it. 

1) I want to exercise and have an active lifestyle. I may be skinny but in reality, I am so physically weak because of my sedentary lifestyle. I really want to tone up, lose body fat and build a strong body. I want to feel better and look even better. 

2) I want to get a new job, get a car and move to a better place. All those years of education behind me, I want to finally get a stable job that is actually relevant to my passion and degree. I want to move closer in town and have my boyfriend to move in with me. I want to start establishing my own independent adult life. 

3) I want to pass my final exam and become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist. It is coming up this year and can't wait until I finish my program. I hear the final exam is super intense but I have faith in myself.

4) I want to take care of myself. I eat pretty healthy but I rarely restrict when it comes to snacks because I believe in indulgence. Eating something I love gives me so much joy but I tend to overdo it. So this year I want to learn moderation. Mindful eating is a lifestyle change. Another thing is to be strict on my skincare routine and try to dress nicely, everyday if I can. I want to look good for myself even on bad days, because the worse is to see yourself all tired and worn out with self neglect -- its really a downer. No despite whatever stress, I'm still going to look fab and ready to deal. 

5) I want to be the better person. Sometimes I get really sensitive when I get triggered, and then I freak out. But when I think about it, it's because I get too worked up over small details that I fail to look at the bigger picture. This year I want to stay positive and try to see past little hurdles. I need to know that when my mind goes on rampage, I need to slow things down.

6) Lastly, I want to blog what and when I want. I feel like in the past years, blogging slowly became a chore because I was stressed on putting out posts and sponsored reviews when I didn't have the time. This year, I want to do whatever I want because I only enjoy blogging when I want to anyway. Plus I do have a lot of things to share so I really hope I get around it. But one thing for sure, I want to start blogging about nutrition and share my knowledge with you. As a nutrition student and soon-to-be nutritionist, there are so many soooooo mannnnyyy false information on the web, and that makes me really angry. I want to explain everything based on what I learned from my professors. Food is a vital part of life and everyone should spend some time to understand how nutrition can impact you. This is so important because I see so many people neglecting their health because lack of awareness, mis-information and desensitivity from today's ignorant food culture. The truth is, you can eat yourself to become stronger person or you can ignore what a blessing traditional medicine and modern science has given us and eat yourself to death. We need to take care of ourselves!

I hope to read back at the end of 2016 and proudly pat myself for achieving all my resolutions. I know if I push myself a little harder, I can definitely do it. But I want to thank all my readers who have supported me through these years. It's a little unbelievable that someone would be interested to read my thoughts. Seeing your clicks and comments makes me happy. Thank you!

[♥Sponsored♥] Ice Cream 3 Color Blush #3 by Nanda

Hi everybody!

Today, I got a makeup review to share! I've been using this product for a while now and I like it a lot. Big thank you to my sponsor BornPrettyStore ♡ I also have 10% discount code: CCH10 for my readers so be sure to check them out!

Ice Cream 3 Color Blush #3 by Nanda
Get them HERE from BornPrettyStore
Came in a cute box
Stock picture (4 colors available)
Color & Finish: I chose color #3 because I think it'll suit me the most. It's a medium/light pink shade with a off-white highlight. There are shimmery specks in all colors and it gives a nice pearl-like glow. The color payoff is sheer but buildable to opaque. The powder feels soft and last almost the entire day.
Quality: Great product as a blush/highlighter! The compact is sturdy and secure, in a cute pink color. I was actually shocked by how big it was when I received it. It is almost the size of my palm! This is also perfect because my blush brush tends to be pretty big. For the price, you actually get a lot for 15grams.
Overall: I really like the 3 colors in combination. It makes application easier and it gradients from blush to a highlight as you apply. I don't like harsh highlighter so its nice when the blush comes with a sheer but buildable highlight too. The pan is huge so you can actually pick how you distribute the colors. Overall I'm really impressed with this product. Blush is an essential for me daily but I'm sure this product will last me a long time because it's such a big pan. Plus it's so convenient and the finish is so pretty!
