The Artist

Apparently that's what I am. According to 9 Types Personality Test anyway. The artist/ romantic belongs to Type 4. DAYUM most of the stuff (alright, all) said is pretty right on the money! As taken from the site:

Romantics have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.

How to Get Along with Me

Give me plenty of compliments. They mean a lot to me.
Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value myself.
Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.
Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.
Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!

What I Like About Being a Four

my ability to find meaning in life and to experience feeling at a deep level
my ability to establish warm connections with people
admiring what is noble, truthful, and beautiful in life
my creativity, intuition, and sense of humor
being unique and being seen as unique by others
having aesthetic sensibilities
being able to easily pick up the feelings of people around me

What's Hard About Being a Four

experiencing dark moods of emptiness and despair
feelings of self-hatred and shame; believing I don't deserve to be loved
feeling guilty when I disappoint people
feeling hurt or attacked when someone misundertands me
expecting too much from myself and life
fearing being abandoned
obsessing over resentments
longing for what I don't have

Fours as Children Often

have active imaginations: play creatively alone or organize playmates in original game s
are very sensitive
feel that they don't fit in
believe they are missing something that other people have
attach themselves to idealized teachers, heroes, artists, etc.
become antiauthoritarian or rebellious when criticized or not understood
feel lonely or abandoned (perhaps as a result of a death or their parents' divorce)

Fours as Parents

help their children become who they really are
support their children's creativity and originality
are good at helping their children get in touch with their feelings
are sometimes overly critical or overly protective
are usually very good with children if not too self-absorbed

Q&A time

Surely Yahoo! Answers need no introduction. Manolith came up with the Top 5 Best answers from the site. Read if you are bored and wanna laugh.

Still can't get enough? Check this out then.

Juicy stuff

I don't know how long this has been out (probaby years), but I hadn't try it out until quite recently. JC always gave off that blonde bimbo vibe that never really appealed to me. However, by chance came across this and loved the scent- enough to buy one. Never say never, right?
Taken straight from their site:
"Top notes of mouthwatering watermelon, mandarin, and pink passion fruit combined with the sparkling freshness of bright marigold and green apple, enhanced by a splash of water hyacinth and crushed leaves.
Heart notes of couture tuberose absolute wrapped in wild rose with sophisticated princess lily and creamy tuberose.
Base notes of caramel créme brulée and vanilla meld with elegant precious woods and patchouli."

Conceal your flaws

High-def's all the rage. First came the foundation, now Smashbox introduces the HD concealer. I tried the foundation and I quite liked it. I am eager to try this new concealer more since I have four or five tubes of foundation opened already....maybe I should finish them before consider buying another one.

Not that duo concealers are new on the market, but NARS finally jumped on the bandwagon and came out with their own version. There are 3 shades to suit different skintones, somehow I doubt that would be enough...Still, would like to try it soon to see whether it's better than the ones that have been out there for so long.

Roomy comforts

As a person without much of a life, I prefer to sit at home in my pajamas. I miss being able to get really cool pjs. Having nice and comfy pjs is comforting and helps complete the bumming around experience.

Urban living

Hypothetically, if I had to choose- in a life or death situation- one site that describes my style, this one would come pretty close (listing out all the things I like from the site would seem like I work for them or something. Not so). It's quite sad that my 'style' can be summed up with just one site and the products are mass produced. So I guess really originality and creativity are just not in my vocabulary huh. That said, I love pretty much everything they have. Especially the home section, the products are so cute and quirky. I always look for nice ways to hang jewellery, so these grabbed my attention. They also double up as nice room decoration. Now if only I could get my grubby hands on some...Whoever said mass produced things can't be great too?!

Just peachy

Speaking of lingerie, one of my friends' looking for new ones. I'm loving the Japanese take on Victoria's Secret- Peach John. PJ has cutesy stuff as well as sexy stuff. Just like VS. For those that need the extra bit of boost, there are bras with padding or inserts (yes, I bought some).

A state of pleasure

Ahhh yes. Australian lingerie brand Pleasure State pieces are so drool-worthy. These are just some current examples.

French jewellery

During my recent travels to Europe, I came across a fun jewellery brand, N2 (thanks to the wise friend that told me to start this blog). The French brand's summer 2009 collection included cute fairytale character little red riding hood and others. I couldn't resist getting a couple of things from their collection for myself.


It has taken much consideration for me to start a blog. No, actually not really. I just never really thought about it before until recently a friend suggested, "you know what? you should definately start blogging". Why not? What's another one measly little blog added to the collection floating on the web?

So here it is. I finally got off my butt and decided to give this thing a shot. What am I gonna offer? Not much. It's not like I'm gonna offer the cure for a disease. However, I am gonna blog about things I like. And dislike. Love, and perhaps loathe... just like everyone else.
