It’s my off day!

Been signing online petitions and clearing my email the whole morning. Am now listening to Gesaffelstein’s works..

He’s a french DJ i would say.. whose music has got a haunting, heavy quality about them.. and it doesn’t hurt that he looks like this right?


Tsk tsk.. such an eye candy.

A current favourite from him will be “Viol”. Enjoy, my friends.


A little note..

what a sunny day.

Just want to lounge and chill while reading / writing / petting a kitty / reading emails.

oh the usual.


Have this on repeat now; feeling it deep

Dream on my world
I live on my world
Going off my head down to
Goin’ on the best of tune
and pressure today
I blew a bad man away today
Had to go
Had to be told
I blew the man away

Brother, sister too
Do what you must do
Don’t trust people you meet

Yeah, yeah
They might promise you
That the river ain’t deep

Dream on the street
People passing through me,
Yes they do
Well my friend
Oh my heart bends

Gonna bring it all back

Brother, sister too
(She walked out tomorrow)
Do what you must do
(Like a corner, yeah)

Don’t trust people you meet

Yeah, yeah

They might promise you
That the river ain’t deep
That the river ain’t deep

Brother, sister too

Do what you ought to do

Ooh my baby they say
The river ain’t deep
But it’s in the dark

The river ain’t deep

The river ain’t deep
The river ain’t deep

Gosh Cosmetics does not test on animals! : their email response

Edited 13th May 2014:

I just needed to update this post, initially was titled as “Gosh Cosmetics is cruelty-free!“, which is a misnomer and unless a brand is certified Vegan, with a Leaping Bunny logo, is PETA approved or certified in any other way by a solid organization, then they shall not be tagged as “cruelty free”, because “cruelty free” should only be applied to vegan products with certifications. Read more on this awesome tumblr website, they have tonnes of information, go read up and learn something!

So a week ago, i emailed Gosh Cosmetics, You know.. they sell in Sa Sa as well. I really wanted to buy from them but i was just really cautious  because i wasn’t sure if they were animal friendly.. and that is kind of an issue for me. So… what did i do then? I emailed them. Just to find out some truth and make me feel better. I badly wanted their skin perfecting kit, highlighter & concealer. It’s all-in-one and i can sculpt/contour on one palette… So yeah. That’s the first thing i will get from them real soon.

Anyway, just wanted to share with you guys the email, for all of us conscious shoppers 😀

I emailed the following:

Warm greetings!

I have been very fascinated and tempted to get your products, i just have a
few questions i would like to understand from you though..Can i just ask  if
you guys are cruelty-free, meaning do you support animal testing and/or have
third party suppliers whom test ingredients on animals? Also, i would like
to ask if you guys use any animal by-products too? If you are cruelty free,
it doesn’t state anywhere on your packaging or on your site, which is why i
would just like to ask..

Thank you kindly for reading and really hope to hear from you soon! 🙂



And they replied the following:

Hi Asfa,

We do not test any of our products on animals, this includes the ingredients
used and the finished product. I hope that this information helps you.



So Gosh Cosmetics are really nice, although i still cannot find anywhere on their site if they are cruelty-free or not, nor on their packaging. So that still kind of puzzles me, but for now, this should suffice eh? It doesn’t take much for you to find out, just email companies if you are concerned about anything. 🙂

Thanks Gosh Cosmetics for the prompt reply and for being cruelty-free!

Yeah. So i can go craaazy now and lust after things on their website.



p/s: I’ve been more than slightly obsessed with Kimbra and remixes of her songs, but anyway below is my favourite of her original song (aside from Two Way Street). She has a really strong powerful voice, reminiscent of Amy Winehouse (you will love Kimbra, trust me bae) and this video was my favourite, it had a message (if you read YT comments) and the styling was just so, so gorgeous. She is super sexy and expressive in this. Go watch it!

Throwback: Tots Biz & how it won’t work now.

I was just thinking this morning while showering, about business ya know.. same ol’.. same ol’. Like what can i do if i so wanted to do my own business. haha

It just occurred to me, when i was between 5-7 years old, i actually got some old colored paper and folded them into fans. At this point you’re probably wondering if i wanted to tell you a tale of how creative and genius i was at that age. Heck, i’m not even  creative nor genius at 22. Err, no. not really. Anyway, I actually just folded the paper like below (photos are from google images):

And uh, it’s not even in pretty paper. These images above, are pretty paper ok? mine was just freakin’ construction paper.

I folded them, packed them in a huge paper bag and went around the HDB flats to sell them.

I was illegal even back then. Tiny BADASS-ery! woo!

I still remember some of them opened their doors and saw this really tiny little girl (i was tiny even when i was small, such is the story of my life) with a huge paper bag and convinced themselves i wasn’t someone umm, unwelcome. I looked at them with wide eyes and squeaked “do you want to buy this?” and held up a rather unattractive folded paper fan.

I guess most of them bought because i was so harmless and pitiful looking. Some were suspicious and asked “what is it for?” and back then i guess i never thought why it needs to be for something ya know? I mean, it’s a fan. Some time you might need a fan. I’m selling you a fan right now. Do you want a fan or do you not???? Its just $0.20. I guess i can’t remember what i squeaked in reply..

When you were young anything goes eh?

Ah well.

If i tried to sell something now, like that.. without a license. hoho.. Wide eyed Puss in Boots expression can’t even help me.

It’s a sad realization.
