We can help!

Ciao! It’s Chams. πŸ™‚ For today’s blog post, I just wanted to share with you all something that I learned today (real quick!). I came across a video online, promoting this web search engine called Ecosia.Β 

So basically, Ecosia is a search engine that plants trees using its ad revenue.Β The system is really easy. You just have to search the web using Ecosia, then all of the ad searches will generate income for Ecosia and they will use all the money to plant trees! Amazing, isn’t it? πŸ˜‰

They have already planted 17 million trees as of now and they have 7 million active users! You see, even if you’re on the other side of the world, sitting in front of your computer, sipping a cup of coffee while searching for random stuff on the internet, a team of passionate people will plant trees using the ad searches that you generated.


It’s reallyΒ  easy!Β

Step 1:Β Β Go toΒ EcosiaΒ and click “Add to Chrome”.

Step 2:Β After clicking the first button, this will appear. Then click “Add to Chrome” again.

Step 3:Β Congratulations! You did it! Now, click “Continue to Ecosia”.

Step 4:Β Now, you can help plant trees! Yay! πŸ™‚

Search as much as you can so you can contribute more. Personally, I think this is a really good movement because you’re literally doing your normal thing but you can help the environment. πŸ™‚ And, you don’t have to worry about “where did all the finances go?”, because they keep track of their financial reports and receipts. Transparency is first for Ecosia and for that, they earned my trust. I hope you support this one! Please spread the word! πŸ™‚

Self-care is necessary

Ciao! It’s Chams. πŸ™‚

I know there are days when you feel exhausted, lonely and sometimes, getting up in the morning is like the hardest thing to do. Don’t worry, you are not alone. I’ve been there too, and though it was not as easy to get away with that phase, I know that you can do it! πŸ™‚ As for me, I practiced self care to help get myself together and be a brand new person. It was really helpful, because you know, the only person that can take the best care of yourself is YOU!Β So, here are some self-care ideas that you can try!

If you are out there shooting, things will happen for you. If you're not out there, you'll only hear about it.

 

I hope you try some of these ideas. πŸ™‚ I’ll see you soon!

Dream Space

Ciao! It’s Chams. Welcome back to my blog!

Lately, I was a bit busy and wasn’t able to be on track with my blog post schedule, but I’m back since I have plenty of time off from my job (Yes! I have a job again! Yay!). On the side note, I really missed writing here and I wanted to make a bit of a personal blog post too and I thought it was cute to share my dream space. πŸ™‚

At the moment, I’ve been really into decorating and organizing my room. I usually spend hours and hours of my time watching videos of people having their room tour and looking at Ikea catalogs online so I could get ideas as well. Very occasionally, I get to see (and buy) cheap decors at department stores and try to incorporate them in my room. However, I can’t do much of the designing since I share room with my sister and I have to consider her likes too.

I really want to have my own space, and I really dream of having my own house soon too. I am trying to work on that and I pray for God’s provision too, hehe. πŸ™‚


Get ideas!

I already have a very concrete imagination of what my dream space would be like. I am going for a minimal, chic and vintage maybe? I don’t know if that will work altogether, but those are the vibes that I want to get when I have my own space.

I use Pinterest to get all the ideas and to make everything concrete. If you have Pinterest, you can check out my boardΒ here.

Living Room

 

I would love to go for a minimal look in the living room. A huge window is a must for me, because I love natural lights and it just gives out a really positive energy in the room. I would like to have hardwood floors too. I know it can be really expensive but you know, it’s a “dream” house LOL. L-shaped couches are my favorite too because they’re really cozy! Throw pillows in different sizes, shapes and patterns are also great accent pieces. Art prints and plants will look good too for this vibe, to give out a bit life in the room.


Kitchen

As you can see, I’m still going for a bright, natural light and very clean look in my “kitchen”. This is my favorite part of the house, because this is where all of the magical stuff (I really love to cook and bake) happens. The thing that should be in my kitchen are subway tiles for the backsplash. I love subway tiles so much! They really look clean and sleek. I would also love to have a marble countertop and a bit of a kitchen counter with high stools in front of them.Β  And of course, a kitchen wouldn’t be my kitchen if it didn’t have a coffee bar. πŸ˜‰


Dining Room

The kind of dining room set-up that I like isn’t the usual dining room that you see around. I love breakfast nooks! It really looks refreshing and unique, and it gives out a very cozy vibe to the room. Breakfast nooks are best if they’re surrounded with a big window. πŸ™‚

If it doesn’t work out, a Scandinavian look would be really good too! Doily chairs are very popular lately and I think it’s really cute. And a copper accent light fixture looks really cute too!


Bathroom

Moroccan fish scale tiles look so cute in bathrooms! It makes you feel like a mermaid, plus the gold accents looks good too! πŸ™‚ But, I’m not really sure if it would still look cool after several years though.

Accent wall tiles are very cute too! It really gives out an identity to your space. Check out the cool shower head too! πŸ™‚ I think this design will go well if you have a small bathroom. As much as I would love to have subway tiles in my bathroom, I think it would be a bit redundant since I have it already in my kitchen. (guys i’m taking this very seriously hahaha)


Bedroom

Believe it or not, I didn’t really look up for bedroom ideas because I just want it to be very simple. I just want a patterned rug and big windows for the room. Also, enough space to snug all of my books and a cute desk to do my creative stuff. πŸ™‚


Outdoor Chill Spot

Outdoor chill spots are so cool! I want to have this in my house because I love the cozy feel to it, and my family loves to eat outside (literally outside) and have barbecue etc. We would set up a canopy at our garage and set up a table, a grill and we’ll just have dinner there. It’s really fun. πŸ™‚


 

And that concludes my dream space tour! I hope you liked it! πŸ™‚ If you have a Pinterest board same as this, I would love to see that as well. For now, I’ll pray that I would get to have this dream space, and also I will work hard for it. Anyways, thank you so much for reading this! πŸ˜‰

Mini Make-Up Stash

Ciao, it’s Chams!

Welcome back to my blog! This is going to be quick though.

Yesterday, my sister and I went out to buy new make-up products because we ran out of our essentials. Basically, we share the same stuff all the time, and I think that’s pretty normal for anyone who has a sister.


What I got

Processed with VSCO with k3 preset

 

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Matte + Poreless 

[ in the shade 220 – Natural Beige ]

I’ve been seeing this product all over lately and the reviews were all great! This is almost comparable to the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte, though they have their own pros and cons in terms of the matte finish and their coverage. We were really planning to get the Infallible, but it wasn’t on Sale so we got Fit Me instead. But we have no regrets, this product is amazing and it’s definitely worth the price. It also has better finish after you bake it with translucent powder. Must try!

 

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 

[ in the shade 35 – Deep ]

To be honest, this is my first time owning a concealer. I know, I know, don’t judge me. I’m 22, and this is my first time getting a concealer. But, I fell in love with this product right away! It really hides my pimple marks and other discolorations on my face. The sales lady asked me to get a shade slightly darker than my skin tone to provide more coverage. I always thought you have to choose the lighter one. Haha I’m not really a beauty expert, why the heck am I doing this.

 

Nichido True Colors Collection Powder Blush

[ in the shade Cool Rum ]

I always love buying Nichido blush powders, not only because it’s affordable, but because it’s long lasting! Nichido is actually my favourite drug store make-up because of it’s quality and value for money. The shade is a bit peachy, since peachy blush works best on my skin tone unlike the pink ones.

 

Aido Travel Kit Eyeshadow Palette

[ Color # 2 ]

It was not really in my head to buy an eyeshadow palette, but I saw this one and it’s super cheap and the colors are awesome! It includes 6 neutral eyeshadow colors perfect for a natural make-up look. It also comes with 2 blush powders. This is super ideal for travelling because you don’t have to bring multiple palettes for blush and eyeshadows. The colors are pigmented too and they really blend well.


I think these products will be my go-to make-up for this month of August! Hope you like this one! πŸ™‚
