Breena Beauty Wanderlust Eyeshadow Palette

8:53:00 PM

Assalamualaikum everyone!

I'm not really a makeup hoarder. Everytime I'm thinking of buying new makeup, I think to myself, I have enough already. I'm not gonna use this and it will end up as an expensive decoration on my vanity table.

However, sometimes I just can't resist myself from buying makeup especially eyeshadow palettes. It makes me happy just by looking at them.

Recently, I bought these beautiful Wanderlust Eyeshadow Palette from Breena Beauty. If you didn't know already, Breena Beauty is one of the famous Malaysian cosmetics brand. I have been eyeing this eyeshadow palette since it was first released last year. To be honest, the colors of the eyeshadows really caught my eye and attention. I have always love a palette which can give me lots of options to play with when I’m either feeling bold or playing it safe.

The Wanderlust Palette contains 15 warm neutrals shades of eyeshadows which are perfect for everyday wear. This palette have a perfect balance of matte and shimmer shades, which is what I am always looking for whenever I'm considering to buy an eyeshadow palette. 

When I first swatched the shades using my fingers, they are really pigmented. However, when I applied it on my lids using a brush, I have to apply it several times to get the results that I want. It kinda makes me a little bit disappointed, because this palette is a hype among local makeup and beauty enthusiasts so I have a really high expectation of it. But overall, the pigmentation is quite okay and acceptable for me, and it blends easily too.

I'm a sucker for cute and elegant product packaging. Breena Beauty did a wonderful job in choosing the right way to present their product because I love everything about it. I love the base color, the material of the palette, the font, the gold hot stamping, I really mean EVERYTHING! To top it off, the palette also have a built in mirror! I love the fact that every purchase of their product comes in a custom box and a note too which can be used as a pretty flatlay material or as a storage box, which is an extra bonus point for boxes hoarder like me.

Overall, for the price of RM99, (I bought it on sale for only RM49 though. Hehe) the Wanderlust Palette is totally an absolute steal especially if you are a beginner (like me). You can create so many different looks with just this one palette and that is what makes me crazy about it. I'm definitely going to use it a lot after this!


DIY Thrift Flip : Put Your Hearts Up

10:07:00 PM

Assalamualaikum. Hey everyone! We are now in the year of 2019, Alhamdulillah. I have made a list of 2019 resolutions, and one of them is to blog actively again. So here I am trying to fulfill one of my resolution 😉

I'm currently (and forever will be) into thrifting. I love finding rare clothing at a very dirt cheap price! A few months back I went to the famous Jalan Jalan Japan thrift store and bought some clothing for myself and I have been planning to do a DIY thrift flip since then, since I'm also a huge fan of DIYs.

I bought this heart shaped printed shirt for only RM10. I super love the prints, and I love that it is oversized because I love loose clothing. But I have so many similar kind of shirts already and that is why I'm gonna alter this shirt into a cute tank top. This is a really simple DIY that you can do at home even though you're not good at sewing. You can also use thread and needle to hand-sew this top if you don't have any sewing machine.

This is the original look of the shirt. I cut off the body parts and the sleeves to make the shoulder straps. I just sew both sides of the body parts, hem the top, and attached the straps to it. And voila! 

Sorry if you can't really see the real look of the top. Girl gotta cover her chest with them tudung 😆😆 But basically this is how I'm styling it. As it is sleeveless, I'm gonna wear it as an outer and wear another shirt as an inner. I'm really loving the results 💕

Or I can also wear a long jacket over it just like this 💕

This is going to be one of my favorite top, for sure! So what do you think? Do tag me on Instagram @scha_roslan on your DIY projects, I would love to see them too 😸

Another Fathia

Salam! I'm back after a year of another hiatus. I don't know why but I can't seem to find time to update my blog.

Anyways, when Yusra was 4 months old (that was last June) I found out that I was pregnant again. I know it's too early to have another baby, since I can (not literally) still feel the contraction pain when I gave birth to Yusra. But we plan, and Allah plans. And Allah is the best of planners. Besides, I kinda miss the feeling of having a baby in my womb :P
 I think every mommy feels the same way too after they deliver their babies.

Just like when I was pregnant with Yusra, my first baby, I had another easy pregnancy, Alhamdulillah. I experience very minimal morning sickness and this time I can feel the baby kicking as early as 16 weeks. I have no other complications, and I delivered my second baby without my husband to accompany me, since he have to take care of Yusra. I remember when I started having contractions, I pray to Allah that I want a quick and easy delivery. Alhamdulillah my prayer was granted, I started feeling the super painful contractions at 7 am, and delivered my second baby at 12.51 pm. 

Unfortunately, my baby and I was warded for 5 days since the doctors said that my baby have G6PD deficiency.If you don't know what that is, just google it up okay. Other than that, everything is perfectly fine. She was born last 3rd of March and is almost 2 months old now :)

Guys, say hello to Fathia Hanna :)

P/S: I remember saying to myself that I want to get married at 27. I'm 27 now, and I already have 2 kids 😂

Fathia Yusra

A Whole New Chapter

Salam. Hey girls! It has been a couple of years since my last post! I've changed my blogger link and drafted my older posts though. Honestly, I really miss blogging so much! So I'm going to blog more often after this, insyaAllah :)

For those who follow me on my Facebook or Instagram, you must have known that I just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last February. I named her Fathia Yusra. Girls, can you believe that I am now a mommy? I can't believe it either! 

I never imagined myself as a mother, cause I'm always the childish and silly one. I never imagined me being pregnant, having morning sickness, feeling my baby kicking and experiencing the painful contractions. But I am really thankful to Allah to experience these beautiful moments myself, Alhamdulillah :)

It has been over a month now since I delivered my baby. It was tough, especially during the first week of my confinement period. I was so emotional, I cried even for the smallest thing. Thank god for the greatest support I can ever have, my husband :) 

How time flies so fast! Feels like it was just yesterday that I played in the rain with my sisters. Today  I have a kid of my own. Haihh so surreal! I know that I have a bigger responsibility now and I'm ready for it. Bring it on, motherhood!

With Love,
Scha Roslan
