Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Merry Christmas!!!!!

Christmas is obviously way over but I thought I'd still wish you. 
Also it's New Years Eve today and I'm gonna wish you a 

Happy New Year!!!!! 

in case I don't blog tomorrow. I hope you guys had a wonderful year and I hope you'll have an amazing year ahead.
Sorry for the long absence, tons of things happened and it all happened so fast.
I was away a lot because a very unfortunate thing happened to my family especially my uncle and aunt. There was that and of course Christmas which came and left so fast. The Christmas shopping, decorating, cooking and everything else which was a lot to do and my mum sprained her ankle which was just the icing on the cake. 
I wouldn't call this year my best Christmas ever but it was an okay Christmas.
Anyway, I just wanted you guys to know that I have a few things planned for you including a "What I got for Christmas" post. I'll have all the things I received as well bought during the holiday sales in there. 
I'm also thinking of having a "Room Decor" series. I am changing my room into a whole new room right now, so maybe I'll do some posts on that like  DIY projects and storage ideas and stuff like that.
Sadly my room is already painted and I totally forgot to take a before picture of it, so you'll have to settle for an after picture only. Really sorry.
I will describe my old room as best as I can for you though.

Apple Crumble Cheesecake

Yesterday we went to cold storage to do some grocery shopping and there was this little cake shop nearby, so my mum gave me and my sister a treat.
There was so much to choose from but I finally narrowed down to two which was the Apple Crumble Cheesecake and the Chocolate Fudge Brownie.
Normally I would have picked the brownie mainly because of the key word being Chocolate but this time I'd thought I'd try something different so I opted for the Cheesecake instead. My sister chose the Tiramisu.
I'd thought I'd share some of the pictures so here

My favourite picture (top)

Hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I'd enjoyed the cake.

My Glam

I'm sure everyone knows that Christmas in coming up soon
I'm spending most of my time in the mall, noting gifts I can get for my family and friends or a gift I can treat myself to.
Well I have one gift idea for you guys and that's

 My Glam is founded by Michelle Phan and I bet almost all you youtubers would know her. There are 5 stylists in My Glam, all which are popular youtube beauty gurus.
Anyway, the gift I meant was to subscribe to a glam bag (monthly/yearly)
The gorgeous glam bag has full-sized or sample-sized branded beauty products in it. They will also personalize your glam bag so that you will love the products you receive. They'll personalized it according to your quiz, so answer some questions and get a glam bag.

Also, you can upload videos of you using the products with your own techniques and tips. You can share your thoughts and reviews on the beauty products too. The stylists will also be around to answer any questions you might have.
Once I heard about this I was all out to pay $10 for the glam bag and be a member for free but the glam bag only does shipping which is free throughout the U.S and I don't live there so that was sad but I still joined the community.  
I wished they would make the glam bag international because I don't mind paying for the shipping but since it isn't I really suggest joining the community and subscribing for the glam bag if you are in the U.S.

I started so well with my blogging, sorry I slacked.
Well an update on my life, I went to Port Dickson which is a 2 hour drive from where I live. We went there for the weekend cause my house was being used for some kind of commercial and they didn't want any disturbance.
That was a little sad cause these film people always cater good food and if you hang around long enough, you will be offered some food.
The last time, they shot a ZIP commercial at our house and after shooting they gave us a WHOLE box of ZIP CHOCOLATE BARS in every flavour.

It was like a dream come true, at least at the time but now I am so sick of it I haven't eaten that chocolate bar in a year. 
Anyway we stayed at Thistle hotel, we used to head there all the time for a break but now we'll be lucky to even go there once a year.

Our room

 The views from our room

Also we went to a fair there on the first night, now that was the best outcome of the trip. My dad spent like 80 bucks there because well when you start playing the booth games you don't want to stop, they are that addictive. My siblings and I only won a few small but nice stuff and when we showed my dad all the gifts we won, he said he could probably buy all of them and more for less than 30 bucks which is true but where is the fun in that.

I actually won a little cute bear at this dart booth but somehow I lost it(someone stole it). One minute it was right there on the table-top and the next it was gone. I only turned my back on it to play one of the booth games. At least I got Pooh Bear from it all.

DIY: Polka Dot Nails

I finally get to paint my nails, I've been waiting for so long to try out the polka dot nail design.
I  haven't painted my nails in AGES. If you want to know why, my school has this silly rule that no student can wear nail polish to school.
Silly, right? What do they think we are going to do? Blind the other students with our bright colourful nails.
They need to get a little more creative when they make rules.
Anyway, school ended yesterday so there is no one to stop me.
I went out with my friends the other day and we stopped by Elianto.
I needed to refresh my nail polish supply as I was running out of white.
I got that and another polish in Neon Purple.
I thought bought looked gorgeous together so I did the polka dot nails for myself using these three polishes.

It's pretty simple;
1. Apply your base coat to protect your nails from being stained
2. Apply your first colour 
3. Using a nail dotting tool make your polka dots with your second colour    randomly on your nail
4. Apply your top coat for that pretty shine
5. Admire your result

Told you it was simple. Also if you are like me and don't have a nail dotting tool, here are some easy objects around your house to act like a nail dotting tool.

1) Bobby pin

2) Straight pin


3) Ballpoint pen. Preferably one without ink. One with ink works too but you won't be able to use it to write anymore

4) Toothpicks. If you have these kinds, use the back. If you have the pointed one on both sides, still works, smaller dot.

There are so many more things but these are a few. I didn't use any of these thing, I actually used the unused eraser on the top of a mechanical pencil. Hope you like this little nail tutorial.

p.s. excuse the pictures, my blogs last name
