What happens if there is no time to plan for a proper holiday? You pack your backpacks, write up a grocery list, get in the car and go on a road trip to Johore Bahru while catching up on life with a few friends. Thanks to the bff and her efficient PA skills, she planned the 2-nights itinerary and even booked us our hotel rooms. Off we go then!
We know that dehydrated skin causes fine lines, wrinkles and eventually loss of elasticity. For me, dehydration also boosted the stubbornness of my clogged pores. While on my natural skincare journey for the last few years, I skipped doing facials and extractions entirely. Whilst natural, functional ingredients work at keeping the skin’s innate ability to self-restore and “purging” of impurities, it didn’t mean that it can keep all the congestion at bay. Early this year, I noticed the clogged pores going viral across the entire face. I don’t even need a magnifying lamp to see that!
Mila the Barkersaus had a small outdoor barkday celebration back in May this year – marking the 3rd barkday party I’ve been to within less than a year. This is very much overdue, while there are no special tips in organising a hotdog party, it’s always sweet to look back at the photos… and being reminded that Petra’s 2nd barkday is coming soon and the hoomans really need to start planning! ;-O
I tend to avoid over moisturising my skin (not that I don’t need the moisture) because of my sweaty palms and feet. The formulation in most body lotions also tend to make me perspire – something not so common in most people. And… I have just found the best body lotion ever for my dehydrated yet oily skin till date!
While I was enjoying my year-long break, I took the chance to see more of Singapore, mother nature and working out at the same time. The bff and I did one to two hikes a week until we picked up yoga that eventually replaced the weekly hikes. It was through the countless walking that I learnt new routes and got a little better at remembering places.
