Spring Clean

It's currently 12.20AM and I just got home from work about an hour ago. I'm reaaaaallyyy tired, but blogging is a stress reliever for me and I'm kind of stressed right now so go figure. I haven't been getting enough rest lately and I've just been pushing myself to do everything. I sleep late, wake up early, tire myself out and the cycle repeats. Once I have a momentum going, I just never stop until that certain task is done so my most recent efforts have been put into cleaning my room. And I don't mean cleaning like, putting everything back in place and sweep / mop. But declutter and reorganise everything from A to Z. My room is small but it took me a few days because I started with my closet, and then moved to my books, and so on, covering every single part of my room and everything in it. Spring cleaning my room made me realise how much of a hoarder I actually am hahaha. I call it sentimental but really though, who keeps exam papers when you're not even in school anymore ??? Apparently I was guilty of that so you could imagine how many bags and boxes of paper I've sent to the recycling bins in my neighbourhood. A ridiculous amount, that's for sure. I also had a lot of clothes that I didn't wear anymore but were still in good condition so I gave them all away as well. It's such a nice feeling to be in a decluttered and organised room. It's even nicer knowing that everything in it are only the things you need and that everything has it's own place. No junk, no crap hiding around the room messily. If you have free time, go clean your room. Rummage through your things and get rid of your junk. 

Feel the kind of liberation I'm feeling right now. Go ! 

Since my room is all clean and tidy (for now), here's a tour of my little room :  




Basically the only colours I wear hahaha. Am I doing the minimalism trend any justice ? Lolll
Oh and I store my make up (and other clothes) in the cupboard compartment on the right, so I just reach out for everything there when I get ready.
Not gonna show you that part cause it doesn't look that nice haha. 


I keep all of my perfumes / toiletries in drawers. 

Not really happy with how my desk looks right now but it's a lot better than how it looked before haha. 

Of course Olivia wanted to be in the photo too.





I have this urge to paint my accent wall a different (much neutral) colour but nah, I'll just wait til I move to another house. May this post be a constant reminder for me to keep my room this tidy. A tornado usually happens in my room a week after I clean it, I won't let history repeat itself. Not this time !! 

I found these super nice photos of my dad while I was cleaning my room too. Old photos put me in such deep thoughts, siiigh. But really though, my dad was hella stylish and my mum was queen of taking photos. I may have inherited the 'take photos of your lover' genes from her considering how much I love taking photos of Irfan haha. 
And of course, the love of taking photos itself. 





And oh my God. Look how similar my brother and my dad are !! So funny omg. And totally coincidental. 



After I found those, I told my dad through WhatsApp about my discovery and he called me shortly after that. He told me about some of the photos, like how the one of him sitting on the white car is his first car, the one of him in the striped shirt was he got his his third car, And the photo of him tying his laces were Dr. Martens. It would have been so lovely if he were to tell me all of this in person,  but he's all the way in Ampang and I'm in Shah Alam so phone calls will have to suffice. My dad is a lot of fun, he makes me laugh a lot and he's the best (man) cook I know. He could make something simple taste sooo nice, even if it's bread with scrambled eggs. Hah this is me rambling into something else but yeah, my dad's pretty awesome. He has his flaws (doesn't everyone ?) but I wouldn't trade him for anyone else. 

It's getting late and I should probably start on my assignments or try to sleep. Oh btw, I'm feeling extremely anxious waiting for the #fvtlngetaway winner announcements. The contest ended yesterday but they still haven't announced anything ! I've read a lot of awesome blog entries for the contest though so the chance of me winning isn't really there anymore hahaha, but who knows if it's my rezeki right ? InsyaAllah.  Have a good week ahead, everyone. x

  1. izza have you ever felt lonely sometimes? do u ever feel like no one appreciates you? because im going through that rn. I feel like people just use me when they have problems and when they're happy they just leave me. When they have problems im there to pick up their broken pieces and put it altogether and i on the other hand feels like no one cares about me and i just feel empty, i really feel sometimes people take advantage of me, I rather see everyone happy except for myself just to keep them happy..and when i do that i feel like no one appreciates it. Im not saying they have to repay me back for what i've done but i feel like they just used me and i also feel like i have no one to talk to bcuz i feel that my very very very best friend cant help me. I used to have this 1 friend who understands me but we fought like crazy and we just stopped being friends, but tbh tho she's the only who understands me but we're not friends anymore. i feel my friends rn don't understand me at all, i love them tho just 😕😞 i feel unloved sometimes..im sorry if im babbling to you, i just need someone to talk to and let it all out.. or am I overreacting?? i don't know :-( i was contemplating to post this comment cause I'm scared you're gonna react "who's this...suddenly expressing their deep thoughts to me" haha.... and ur blog honestly cheers me up a lot.. so thank u! sorry for my long comment..hope u're having a great day.

    1. No, not really tbh :( I think I'm just really blessed with an amazing group of friends. If you feel that way then you shouldn't let them use you, and talk to them and tell you how you feel. I have a friend of mine, more like a little brother actually who's going through almost the same thing as you are and what he did was, he stopped letting people take advantage of him and he focused on his own happiness instead. You should try that, and put yourself first okay ? Enough pleasing people, make yourself happy. Do things you like, go out and get a new book or a new top.

      What did you fight about with your best friend ? It must be really hard for you. Just make lots of dua / prayer. When you feel like this, only God can make you feel better. He has the power to put it there, He has the power to take it away. And also make prayer that you and your friend can be on good terms again, and try talking to her and apologising, even though it's not your fault. It's the right thing to do. It's okay ! Don't feel bad to babble to me haha, I feel honoured that you (and other blog readers) look at me as someone that you can let things out / talk to. You're not overreacting, it's normal to feel this way but you just need to take control.

      Oh and it makes me so happy knowing that my blog cheers you up !! Haha such a sweet compliment. And noo don't be sorry, It's totally fine. I hope you feel better soon ! xo

  4. izza i nak order duck scarves in neutral color like yours. But tak tahu nak which one bc i tak tahu material mana yg better. Material mana yg tak licin izza? Mixed crepe or georgette or? And which is ur fav your toffee pudding or espresso? Hehe

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha I see, the mixed crepe is nice and a bit stiffer sikit than the georgette. The georgette lagi licin. Jersey and bamboo cotton pun tak licin but susah sikit nak bentuk. My favourite is my toffee pudding haha, cause I wear it a lottttt, orang pun dah muak tengok lol.

  5. where did you get the shawl on the left second from top? and you hang pakai that thing does it crease your scarves?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From @jetaimeshawls on Instagram. I think the colour is nude. A lot of my shawls are chiffon so they don't crease that easily and I also learned that lagi banyak layers you lipat (so it becomes tebal) the less it creases somehow haha.

      Delete
    2. thank you! i want to buy the thing but i remembered someone said to me it creases the shawls easily but i might reconsider it now. you have a really nice room too, did you take the photos with your new camera?

      Delete
    3. Thank you ! And yup with my new camera :D

    Replies
    1. Hi ! And nope. I know someone who does and her parcels are always delivered so I don't think it should be a problem. I think the only con is that you have to wait a while to get it. If anything happens you could always contact them :)

  11. Hi Izza! Firstly, I wanted to say I loovveee your blog so much! I'm so happy I found you. *pats own back. You're such an inspiration to me and other people. Wow!

    Secondly, I hope you dont mind me asking this but where do you buy your shawls? What kind of shawl material do you like the most? Square scarf? Cotton? Chiffon?
    Which one is the easiest to bentuk? I think that's all of my questions for now. Don't want to go too far haha. I know you get this kind of questions a lot but I couldn't help but ask. I hope you're willing to help me. Bye Izza! Have a lovely day :) x

    1. Hi ! You're so sweet !!! Thank you T.T <3

      I don't mind at all, the chiffon ones that I usually wear are from @jetaimeshawls on Instagram. But I have one from poplook.com though, and that's the cream/off white one. I like chiffon the most, and for lazy days I love wearing my black pashmina shawl. Square scarf / wide cotton shawls give my face a weird frame haha so I can't pull those off sadly.

      But really, it depends on what suits you best. Some people look amazing with wide shawls, some people don't look that good with chiffon, and some can pull off matte satin more than others so yeah it's a trial and error thing until you find one that looks awesome on you and that you like best. I can't really compare which material is easier to bentuk cause I wear chiffon 90% of the time haha so I only know that I really like those.

      Hope I managed to answer all of them for you ! You have a lovely day too sweetie ! xx

    1. I'm using Simple Kind To Skin Moisturising Facial Wash. Yeah it works really well on my skin, but different skin types react differently to different cleansers so the only way to know is to try it yourself :) I might be doing a review about it in my March-April favourites post at the end of this month. Look out for that !
