things to be happy for this week
Laneige Neo Cushion Glow
When you’re a mom to an almost one year old, spending an hour and a half doing makeup is just not feasible anymore (not that I have anywhere to go in this pandemic). This cushion is absolutely necessary in my simple makeup routine as it does exactly what I wanted; medium coverage and long-lasting. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, too, which I really like. I will then do my brows, add some mascara and finally lipstick.
Coway Neo Plus Water Purifier
I never thought that a water purifier would make me happy but that’s adulting for ‘ya. It was supposed to be installed in June but we were on lockdown so it had to be postponed until some of the ban were lifted. For a few months we had been bringing a couple of 6L bottle every weekend to my parents’/in laws’ to top up our water. It was such a hassle! So so glad that we have it installed now. It’s so much easier to make a bottle for my son without having to boil water and put it in a flask.
My latest love and obsession! I just love going into my GoodNotes 5, checking my planner and daily journal and notebook. I purchased them on Etsy and they have the prettiest covers, I’m so in love. If you have an iPad or any tablet at all, please check out digital planning if you’re into journalling or planning. It makes a world of difference! I talked about switching to digital planning here.
Cereal for supper
My husband and I usually have our dinner at around 7 pm and then I’d put my son to sleep at 8 pm. After that it’s my me-time that I spend doing some cleaning around the house and some blogging, catching up on tv shows and whatnot. By 10.30 pm I’d get hungry (read: in need of some sugar) so I’d make myself a bowl (or two!) of cereal consisting of 3 types of cereals; Koko Krunch, Corn Flakes, and Honey Stars. I’m obsessed with cereal bowl right now I could have it at any time of the day.
Homemade iced caramel macchiato
Oh my goodness, I just made this today and it deserves to be on this list! I’ve been meaning to make caramel macchiato for a couple of days now so yesterday I made my own caramel sauce which is super simple, BTW. I brew some Starbucks coffee grounds and add a whole lot of Farm Fresh milk. It’s delicious! I am never paying money for iced caramel macchiato ever again. It’s super simple to make yourself!
This gal has received her second shot of Pfizer and has passed the two-week mark for immunity! My husband hasn’t received his second dose so we haven’t been going anywhere since in my country you’re only allowed to dine-in or go shopping once you’ve received both doses AND pass the two-week mark. However, I am nearing my due date so I don’t think I’d be going anywhere apart from the clinic and hospital haha.
So how’s your week?
