Updates on my life

Hello everyone!

I know I’ve been MIA-ing for awhile only because of some recent changes and events that took place in my life recently.

My new job

I left my previous company which I had worked for 2.5 years and took up a very challenging role in a new company. It’s challenging because I will be the ONLY legal personnel there and this comes with pros and cons of course. One of the pros is that most of the times, subject to CFO/CEO’s approval, I have the final say to most legal issues and the cons, it’s a heavy responsibility to shoulder.

Apart from that, the scope of my work increased tremendously as I am now required to oversee all my company’s subsidiaries locally as well as overseas. Furthermore, I was also tasked to look into analysing the business of the company besides my legal role.

So you can tell how busy I am and will be even more in the near future. I hope I’ll be able to manage my time well so as not to neglect this little humble blog of mine.

Although ranting about the workload almost on a daily basis, here’s a little secret about me.

I’m actually a workaholic because I simply love the sense of achievement and satisfaction after I’m done with my work! It’s like clearing  a check-list and I LOVEEEEEEEEE that feeling!

I know, I think I’m psycho too sometimes.

Exams

I’m finally done with my education…I mean my further education that is.

I’ve completed all 16 papers for my Masters course, although technically completed since results are not all out yet. Sat for my last 4 papers last week and unfortunately, some were terrible. It’s about a 50-50 chance? Hopefully, everything would go through smoothly and I’ll be able to graduate officially then. Am also contemplating about heading over to London to attend the Graduation Convocation next year sometime in March but not sure if I’ll be able to take such a longggg leave from work. 😦

***

Guess these were the 2 main things that got me quite overwhelmed recently and thought it would be good to just fill you guys in.

I have a few articles to write, few beauty and food reviews to blog as well as my beauty giveaway which I have procrastinating for the longest time!

I am also considering and looking into creating vlogs, especially for makeup tutorials since it’s more feasible than snapping pictures….but I’m kinda shy….wahaha!

Heh, so stay tuned and watch this space okay?

In any case, I’ll be updating more on my Facebook page, so do ‘like’ and follow my page ok? 🙂

And before you guys forget how I look and before I bid goodbye…..

I’m still here

A million apologies to all my ardent readers who regularly check back for updates which I haven’t been doing so since my last entry post on V day.

Several things happened recently, but actually it’s only 1 issue that caused much adversity in my current life.

Just 1 fking issue that brought my whole world crashing down.

I shall not divulge anything but just know that I am dying inside and am at the lowest point of my life, other than death.

Nevertheless, I am still here.

Just that I have nothing happy to blog about.

But will do so soon, I hope.

Officially a blogger at My Fat Pocket! :)

As the title suggests, I am now blogging at My Fat Pocket, together with other awesome bloggers!

A fresh new start, well not really… Weebly vs WordPress

Aloha!

Thank you all for your continuous support by visiting my new site! There are many reasons why I had decided to take this step forward by moving on from Weebly to WordPress! Actually, the reasons are quite generic, just google and you’ll know why.

Reasons :

1. WordPress offers better SEO (Search Engine Optimization)!

2. Although Weebly is more user-friendly as in it’s easier as it’s all pre-fixed, you just have to choose and drag the ‘elements’ (text, pictures, text with pictures, videos, dividers, html codes etc) to your desired location, WordPress offers many more ‘Elements’ or what they call it, functions or widgets.

3. Many have ported from Weebly to WordPress. So, just follow suit right? Kidding :p

4. Silly me went to upgrade to the Pro Account for Weebly just so I can monitor the stats but WordPress offers free stats, including referrers, top pages, top posts, totals, followers and shares, clicks and search engine terms…

5. WordPress is more interactive as it allows other wordpress users to follow and read your blog, or even like a particular post! Weebly does not have such functions and it’s more like a lonesome introvert blog host provider. Hence, wordpress reaches out to a larger audience!

6. Customising the blog appearance and layout is so much easier! Weebly does not highlight the portion, e.g. background html codes when you require, but wordpress has got everything organised. Background, header, colours of texts, positions of widgets etc.

7. You need not pay unnecessarily with WordPress, unlike Weebly.

8.  You can create as many blogs as you want with 1 account whereas Weebly limits to I think, 3 blogs. Anything more than that, I think you’ve to pay.

9. WordPress is more popular than Weebly. Some might not have even heard of the latter. Makes sense?

10. Actually, the main reason why I’d switched to WordPress is because of the ‘Follow me’ widget which Weebly has no recognition of. I had to source for a reliable feed burner html code for that and it doesn’t even reflect the number of followers! This is highly impt for a blogger 🙂

So there, WordPress might not be 100% flawless but it’s better than Weebly. Why not take a step closer to perfection, right? 😉

Thank god I’d decided to move now before the number of blog posts increases. Weebly is so selfish that it doesn’t allow you to port over to other blog hosts unlike Blogger, WordPress etc. I had to painstakingly copy and paste ONE POST BY ONE POST, hence you might realise that some of size of the pictures and overall alignments are nowhere near perfection. 😦

Nevertheless, a huge THANK YOU for your support thus far! 🙂

Lots of xoxo,

Jean 🙂

 

 

 

Beauty Reviews – Bare Aesthetics (Underarm Hair Removal) Updates

Just a little update on the progress of the underarm hair removal thus far. It has been a week plus since my last treatment which was also the 1st session, I’ve realised that the growth of the hair is much slower than before and I feel that those areas which have thinner and lesser hairs, would most probably be “cleared” off completely first compared to those thicker ones.

I’ve also realised that my underarms are much fairer, whiter and smoother now.

Am very pleased with the results especially since I have only undergone 1 session with BA 🙂

Hopefully everything would be cleared soon so that I can save the hassle going back again and again.

Next session in mid Sept, so stay tuned 🙂
