My Story : Luck in Life Year 5


One thing I have learnt over these 5 years living with cancer.
In my case, it won't completely be cleared or cured 
BUT
Just live with it.
All We Have Is Now

I didn't write anything for my 4th Year here,  there's no excuse.
I have had the hardest time being inspired, creative and even trying to motivate myself in my terms.
From then till now,
"life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get"
Some days were too sweet, some days bitter, some just mellow, some even sour and sharp.

Kind of does some up many things through these couples of years that I've been through.
Of course, thanking everyone around me that supports me, I am so blessed that I have so many people in my life that not only supports what I do for my career, life but most importantly, mentally. 

It has been a major subject to talk about these couple of years where alot of bloggers you read or vloggers you watch about our mental health. Without denying, it is important to have a good back support. Keep those close to you who support and love you, leave those behind who don't care and only takes advantages. These two things have been the top 5 things that has taught me over these 5 short years. 

Live the life you want and strive for it. 
I always try to strive for the better and work as hard as I can.
There will be people who will bring you down.
There will always be more of those who will take you to joy of various heights. 

5 years with cancer (and a very rare type too)
Having to know that I've literally been turned into a case study, I'm okay with it.
Honestly, if the research for my illness can bring better treatments to those who have it in the future, I'm willing to give all that I can and support to the medical team.

Blessed and won't ramble on any longer.
After what's happened 5 years ago.
Definitely say that I'm very lucky to be alive and to have met so many new and great friends surrounded with love, laughter and full of life.

Just remind yourself like I try to everyday.
Take each day and each thing as it comes.

Weleda : Skin Food


A post shared by Stephanie Silv. Lui (@stephlui88) on

I've been using this Weleda: Skin Food cream for a while now. Even if it's for dry and rough skin, it gives a great base for the makeup without feeling too heavy or sticky. It gives an instant glow too after applying it. Smooth and easy to blend on the skin too.

Personally, I use it on myself and clients. 
I've tried to use this as a highlighter as well and it works wonders in this summer heat!
A little does go a very long way so if you have oily skin, I would suggest using a wee dollop and blend on the highest points on the face.

Origins : DRINK UP Intensive Overnight Mask

A post shared by Stephanie Silv. Lui (@stephlui88) on

The one thing I can't stand myself of in the winter days, is that dryness I have from the bitter cold weather outdoors to the blazing hot heat indoors. Now that spring is almost here, I can say that this Origins: Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask saved my skin from looking patchy, especially after having makeup on all day.

Why I love it is because it's not greasy or sticky. I absolutely disliked some overnight masks where I wake up with my hair stuck to my face because of the product and as well as my pillowcases. With this Overnight Mask, it just feels like cream you've put on after cleansing your face before going to bed. If you do feel like you've got too much on, you can always blot it off with tissue which I find it very useful. 

I use this at least once a week to keep my skin hydrated. I tend to use it when I know I won't have enough sleep or haven't had enough water during the day. One of the best thing with Origins is, there aren't many products where I don't like the scent of it. So, after washing it off in the morning, my skin feels very smooth and soft. Makeup then always looks so much better when your skin is hydrated.

 People ask me how I apply masks in these types of big squeezey tubes. I like to use an old flat brush (like a foundation brush that I won't use anymore) then slowly brush it over my skin. That way I can see how much product I directly put on the brush. If not, just make sure your hands are nice and clean before you apply the mask onto your face. 

Last but not least, because I can travel a lot because of work, I can easily depot it into a smaller tube or pots when ever I need it. The best place I would recommend for these is MUJI. It will become one of your favorite travel container store like me.

If you've tried this product, let me know what you think too.
Please do let me know if there are other products you'd like me to try out too!
