Saturated Sunrise

Starting to really like salmon pinks. Olive greens too ! 

It's close to 2AM, and I'm having trouble sleeping because 1) I had more than enough sleep yesterday which then resulted me to waking up super late, and 2) my mind just won't shut up. So here I am, listening to my XO playlist on Spotify, browsing the net, and occasionally turning around from my desk to check on my cat Butter - who is currently sound asleep in the middle of my bed. Butter has the flu and he hasn't been eating much and he's very weak. Brought him to the vet already earlier today so hopefully he'll wake up feeling better tomorrow.

July was such a good month for me, I literally had plans with people I love every. single. weekend. Honestly felt closer to everyone, which is good because now it's August and a couple of my friends + my cousins are flying off to study abroad soon, so I already had it plastered in my mind that this is a month of sending people off and saying 'see you soon's ! Hate saying goodbye, because it just sounds so.. depressing (?) and sad when sending people off at the airport. Not a goodbye, merely just a see you later. Anyway, although the whole of July was nice and super fun and all, I ended the month with  Kimberly (my car) being sent to the workshop. Your girl here has been car-less for a week now and it sucks. 

What happened was, my car basically overheated like crazy and then broke down. I was out with Kak Imani in Bangsar, and on the way back from there, the car felt like it was just going to die, so we stopped at a petrol station. Left my car there, got Irfan to pick us up, and send us back to their home. A couple of hours later, we went back to the petrol station, my car could start but the engine was still very hot, but we moved the car from the petrol station to their home anyway. It was pretty risky leaving my car overnight at a petrol station. After that I basically just hung out with Kak Imani and Amilyn at their place until my mum and brother came to rescue me haha. Minus the car d r a m a, I had such a nice time with Kak Imani. Literally felt like she was my big sister that day, having to be there and layan me for hours and hours hahaha. 


You'll only get to eat 5 minutes AFTER you get your food if you eat with us.
We like to document. Hahaha. 



The next morning, dad and I went back there to get Kimberly. The tow truck took an hour ++ to reach, but the wait didn't feel long at all because I had Irfan with me.

Of morning faces and baju tidur.



Don't remember why he looked so happy while Kimberly was being towed.. but ok.
Hahahaha


We celebrated dad's birthday on the 26th, and there was this wall in Paradigm that my family and I were so amused with, hence these photos :




My parents are so cute part 1 :

Also, you can't see it. But my dad was literally holding a key to pretend that he was unlocking the door. LOL.

I hope August is treating you all well so far. Time is moving so fast, I'm glad I still make an effort to blog about moments I want to remember. Oh, and this is totally random to put at the end of my post ; but if you guys have any asian skincare recommendations, do leave me comments down below ! I've been venturing into asian skincare, and my skin is getting + looking so much better. Had a bit of a breakout last month, so I changed my cleanser and started double cleansing with oil at night. Mars had to explain the science behind it to me after I saw her using it at Tania's sleepover, and now that I'm using it, I can see why people do it. So back to my point ; I'm all for asian skincare right now, leave me recommendations. 
If you wanna know the products I'm using on my face currently, details are in my F.A.Q :) 


PS : If any of you guys have me on Carousell (@izzaatirah) and want to buy anything from me, do mention that you read my blog when you chat with me, okay ? 
I'll give you a discount because I love you. Haha. For real tho. x

  1. Hi Izza. I recommend you to use Nature Republic products. I have a normal type of skin but lately my skin felt so dry I don't even know why. Maybe because of the weather idk. but then I started to buy Nature Republic products because a lot of people recommend it for me to use it. Alhamdulillah, my skin feel so hydrated and soft. I love their products so much then I bought all of the skincare which includes moisturizer, toner, face mask, cleanser, make up remover because I'm so obsessed. Haha sorry for babbling too much I just can't help myself because I like to talk a lot! Have a nice day pretty! x

    1. So sweet of you to say that ! ♥ And the answer to your question is, of course we have. I'm pretty sure every couple will have fights that turn ugly or chaotic once in a while, but it depends on how they handle it :) Some fights make you stronger.
