My Daily Skincare Regime (Derma-Rx)

Monday, March 23, 2015
My skin has improved tremendously ever since I started my journey with DRx. Before I continue, please let me clarify that I am NOT paid to say this. Yes, I am sponsored by DRx but I was never told to write this post. I just wanted to share my daily skincare regime and how much improvement my skin has made.

Here's the before - See how much scars and bumps my skin has?!?! 
My skin was at it's WORST at that point of time. And I am SO GLAD DRx came to the rescue! :')

Here are the products I've been using for the past month of so, completely catered by Dr David fo' me. 
- Blemish-Care Cleanser
- Toner
- Milk Cleanser
- Comedone Formula 
- Blemish Formula
- Acne Spot Lotion

(I've stopped using the Acne Spot Lotion as I no longer have acne spots on my face. Love, love!)

And my ultimate TOP FAVOURITE, DRx Tinted Sunscreen!
Nowadays, I just slap on some sunscreen and loose powder and I'm good to go. 

Am extremely grateful to DRx fo' giving me the kind of complexion I have always wanted. 
PS, it has only been about 2 months! Can't imagine how much btr my skin will get if I continue using it in the long term!

Blogging

*Disclaimer: I do not claim myself to be a professional blogger, but I do earn a part of my income through blogging. 

When I first started out bloggin' back in 2004, I honestly never thought blogging would be where it is today. It used to be about expressing feelings, being a space to rant on or just jotting down our daily lives. Nowadays, it's become SO comercialized and if I must say, the blogosphere is a mess right now.

Most people who create blogs now, start it up with the intention of earning "easy money". I'm not going to deny that by posting a couple of pictures and posts, we get paid 3 to even 4 digit sums for certain campaigns. You might think it is easy, but really, it isn't. I may not be as professional as most bloggers out there, but I do take time out to take & edit photos, re-take em' again if I don't think it is good enough. It is super time consuming, and even frustrating sometimes.

I was very upset when I logged in to facebook today and saw many people posting about bloggers being dishonest just to earn money, and that they can no longer trust any blogger's review. THAT ISN'T TRUE AT ALL, or at least for some of us. No doubt we DO get paid to advertise certain products, but I promise, that even though I get paid, everything from my blog is entirely true and based on my own personal thoughts and opinions. If I don't like something, I WILL NOT in any means act like I do. If I don't believe in something, I will NOT recommend it to anyone.

Like for example, a couple of years back I had a terrible hair sponsor and because they were so bad I cancelled my sponsorship with them and also wrote about it to warn others. (You can find the post here: http://www.strawberrycoatedkisses.com/2013/11/forever-yours-hair-couture.htmlHowever, nowadays, I'd make sure to try the products/services (or get someone to try it on my behalf) a substaintial amount of times before writing about it. If the products or services don't work for me I'd let my clients know about it and we will work things out from there. So just because you don't see me backlashing at a product nowadays, does not mean things I say are untrue. Certain things may work for certain people, and may not work for others, but really, who is to blame? It may work for me, but it may not work for you, vice versa. No two people are the same.

With all the drama and hate going on right now, I've seen many lashing out on others. Calling em' names and trying to bring people down. What is the use of it, to prove who's real and who's fake? What do you gain from it? (Am NOT talking about the XX vs GC saga)

I am no saint. I'm not gonna act all righteous and start preaching, because I am NOT a very gracious person myself. But I am trying, and I hope everyone out there puts in a little more effort to be kinder. Because everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.

Xo,
Angeline.

PS/ I'd also like to take this chance to apologize for the influx of advertorials & sponsored posts lately, promise to do a proper update really soon! I should really learn to space things out :|

Zalora | Steve Madden

Wednesday, March 18, 2015
If you know me, you'd know that Steve Madden is one of my favourite shoe brands! Half the amount of shoes I have are from em'. I was elated to know that Steve Madden is now made available on Zalora as well! (YAY!)

Checked em' out and these 2 items caught my eyes:
STEVE MADDEN CLIMBER Lace Up Sneakers

These sporty lace-up sneakers with zipper down sides and strap around ankle are PERFECT for amping up your street style. 
Lately I've been alot more into comfy sneakers becos on certain days my job requires me to stand alot. It also requires me to run to different places, so comfort comes first! 

-

I know this isn't a shoe, but I just had to share it.
STEVE MADDEN SWBKENT Handbag 

This bag features a basic design with decorative gold tone metal hardware. Made of synthetic leader and a lined interior, this bag NEEDS to be in my wardrobe. I can picture this being my everyday bag and chucking everything I need to bring out, inside. Nowadays, I love huge bags becos I'm required to bring my camera, tab, and laptop around. Plus, it can match most of my outfits so what's there not to love?! 

-

Shop Steve Madden women's shoes at Zalora now! :)
Zalora always has lots of discounts so I'm guessing you can now snag your favourite pair of Steve Madden's at just a portion of the price! (I checked, and some of the items on the site are really cheaper then those at the store - So hurry!)

Blissy Box | Period Care Package

Monday, March 16, 2015
Love-hate relationship whenever the Blissy Box arrives. Love becos the box is filled with so much thought - Will go into more details further into the post, and hate cos it reminds me that that time of the month is coming. Boo hoo :(

I'm sure most of you are curious - What EXACTLY do you get in a Blissy Box, you wonder. What makes it different from just going to convenience stores to grab your pads? 

Imagine never having to make a trip all the way to your nearest convenience stores or supermarkets just to stock up on your pads!? Every month, approx a week before your time of the month arrives, you will recieve a box exclusively tailored for your V right to your doorstep. Whether you are a tampon junkie, or a pad girl (or both) you can pick & mix brands and items for your choice! Blissy Box also throws in comforting goodies and surprising gifts in all their boxes as they hope to bring you extra joy! ;)

Here's what I recieved in my Blissy Box this time round:
Don't worry about not having enough pads in your Blissy Box, so far, I haven't been able to use up the pads in my Blissy Boxes fully! (I was sent the Lady Light Box)

Tryout a Blissy Box today @ http://blissybox.sg and you will never have to worry about not having pads in time for your periods ever again!
