Spa day

Spa day

I’m not really a spa goer, I don’t enjoy having a stranger rubbing/ touching my body. However, my entire family went and I thought I would give it spa a try. The whole experience was pleasant but I can’t say that I love spa and would go again, I still don’t enjoy spa massage. Nonetheless, I had a wonderful time and the entire view was really calming. The spa located on mid of a mountain, where you get the view of the ocean while surrounded by greenery, it was breathtaking. The staff at the spa are very friendly, if you happen to visit Quy Nhon and stay at Avani Resort, you should definitely give this spa a go. They have the rose bath cleansing, which gives you the view right out the ocean, it is absolutely stunning.

By the rocks

By the rocks

I had such a good time at Quy Nhon, especially the adventure of climbing rocks at Eo Gio and look out into the ocean. It was difficult to walk, climb over rocks to get this far, I almost gave up but it was all worth it because now I’m looking at these images, I feel happy and grateful for the chance I got to see this view. I would strongly recommend you to visit this rocky beach if you happen to visit Quy Nhon, Vietnam. I heard from the locals, it is best to visit in the afternoon just before sunset, the view is supposedly stunning. I will be sure to do that next time I got a chance to visit Quy Nhon.

Over the horizon

Over the horizon

I wanted to have this up a while back, but I had to take my flight to Japan then, and have not gotten a chance to sit down and check on my blog since. I found myself something tonight, resting at the hotel to prepare for a full day out at Universal Studios Japan and exploring Osaka. Anyway, all the details is for future posts, now, let’s throwback to about 2 weeks ago when I was in white sandy beach with the sun shining above me. I was really surprised with myself for being able to wake up and catch sunrise three days in a row. It was my personal achievement, I did not feel tired once during the trip; I believe it’s because of the fresh air. The effort was worthwhile, I got to watch three beautiful sunrise and it was wonderful, nothing gives me quite a same feeling.

When the sun setting

When the sun setting

Upon my arrival and seeing the sun disappearing behind mountain range, while in front of me I can the waves hitting the white sandy beach. It was such a calming and freeing feelings, I was in that moment and nothing was bothering me then. No works in my mind, zero stress, I thought then I can’t think of the time when I was that relax; it was wonderful. As the sun was setting, I saw what left of the sun shine above the rock settlement on the beach and I just had to get some images there, now looking at this, it takes in right back to that moment.

Arrival at Quy Nhon

Arrival at Quy Nhon

Finally found a chance to take a summer vacation with my entire family and it was wonderful. It was exactly what I needed to free my mind from the day to day stress. This time we choose to vacation in Quy Nhon, which famous for its long-stretch white sandy beach. Yet it has not been heavily invested with resorts and touristy restaurants, which is something I quite like as I find the place more peaceful and relaxing with less people around. I chose to stay at Avani Quy Nhon Resort & Spa, which was distant way from the city so it was just sandy beach, mountain and the sea. I took tonnes of photos, which I will be posting in the next few days so watch out for coming posts.  

Summer Nude makeup

Summer Nude makeup

Where did this year go??? Seriously, times just flew by, I have not gotten a chance to do anything and the year is already almost over, and haven’t got a chance to visit a beach. I’m in a desperate need for that summer tan, but since I cannot get that tan yet, I decided to bronze up my makeup look. I think summer is when you can either go for a bright colour lips makeup look or a complete nude. Today I decided to do a makeup look that I have wore throughout the entire month of June, especially the nude lips; it has been such a huge trend lately.

Yankee Candles Love

Yankee Candles Love

I love me some scented candles in the summer as much as I do during winter time. So it is without a doubt, I could not resist these lovely Yankee candles. They all smell amazing by the way, I fall in love with their scent from that very first sniff, which says a lot. They are all unique in their own ways, but Beach Walk have got to be my absolutely favourite out of the four. It remind me of a good summer vacation, walking on the beach, taking in a depth breath of fresh air and just relax.

Nutella cupcakes

Nutella cupcakes

If you love Nutella as much as I do then you would absolutely love this recipe by CupcakeJemma, it’s another recipe from her because I think she is absolutely amazing.  Again I altered the amount of sugar to my personal preference. The cupcake is moist, full of chocolate, hazelnut in the cake and Nutella in the icing; there is no way that you not going to love the cupcake if you love having Nutella as a spread.

Go and head on over to JemmaCupcake YouTube channel to find the recipe! I’m sort of obssess with her at the moment.

Rainbow cake

Rainbow cake

I’ve always been a huge fan of rainbow cake, I love the fact that it looks simple on the outside but outburst with colours when cut open. Baking has been my way to clear my mind, escape, finding calmness in all that is crazy of works and life. I’ve been baking a lot of cupcakes lately and they all turned out great so I decided to attempt the biggest cake I’ve ever made. It took me almost 3 hours to complete but the result is so rewarding. 

Liquid lipsticks obsession

Liquid lipsticks obsession

Liquid lipstick is definitely a huge trend this summer!! And I can’t deny that I didn’t get on with the trend. I have made quite a few purchases in the past month or so, building up that liquid lipstick collection of mine. Purchasing from different brands, I can definitely found my favourites.

NYX has quite a collection of liquid lipsticks and the new Liquid suede collection is actually my favourite out of all the liquid lipsticks I had tried. It has a great consistency, smooth and matte finish, the pigmentation and colour is out of the question, they’re incredibly amazing. Having say that, I’m still trying to get my hands on some of the Colorpop liquid lipsticks, as I heard a lot of good reviews about them. But the NYX suede lipsticks will have to do. Besides the suede collection, I did get my hands on other liquid lipsticks that I can find.

Be bright, happy, you
