Dean told me he read this one article on hobbies and how each of us need to have 3 kinds of hobbies for a happy life;

1)   A hobby that makes you money

2)   A hobby that keeps you fit and healthy

3)   A hobby that keeps you creative

So for number 1 I have my job which I love. Number 2’s just boring yeah exercise whatnot… will get to it after confinement, promise.

But Number 3 I definitely have. Lately I’ve been so inspired by international bloggers who do nice flatlays on Instagram and I’ve been trying to do my own flatlays. (A flatlay is a picture of things taken from aerial view… how do you not know this?)

Flatlays look easy but it involves a lot of arranging, bending down and knowing what to put in your picture so everything looks coherent. And also, good lighting! I get so annoyed after sunset when there’s no more natural lighting to take good flatlays. Haha. Obsessed much?

Anyway, it’s getting harder to do my flatlays now since Baby M is so huge and bending down is proving to be more painful by the day! (Good flatlays mean standing on a chair and bending down and risking your life, really…). But I couldn’t resist doing one today.

How cute are these lipbalms! I got a few flavours just to try out (they have loads of fruity ones). I love the unique packaging and how it’s small enough to fit in your handbag but big enough that you can just rummage through your bag and grab it easily.

They smell fantastic and each ChuLip lipbalms are formulated with a blend of delicious recipes and enhanced with moisturizing ingredients like olive oil, macadamia nut oil and rose hip oil.

So now pucker up and Chu.

Chu means Kiss in Japanese.

You learn so much from this blog, seriously. Sigh.
