Picture Perfect Life

It is everyone’s dream to have a perfect life.

A perfect of everything, top to bottom. Well, I should say that this book is perfect! Do you want to know why?


Sophie Kinsella’s My Not So Perfect Life revealed that social media can be scary, but in a hilarious way. I deeply thought that this book may boost more confidence especially in us, women, by setting a mindset that life is what it is. Can life be perfect? The answer is no. But you can make it happen. How?┬áThis is your life. You’re the boss. You control it.

Take your future into your own hands. Make it happen. Life is a coloring book, but you have the pens.

So, you think your boss has that perfect look, a perfect husband, perfect children, a perfect home, a perfect job, a perfect guy friend *wink*. So, what? You scroll your Instagram feeds. You look at those pictures of your Insta friends, and think, “I want that kind of life”. Do you realise how sickening it is when your conscientiousness are affected just by the mere thought of picture perfect life.

Whoever started the rumor that life has to be perfect is a very wicked person, if you ask me.

Faking your so-perfect-life is a social distortion. Our life has values. You should appreciate it. You should be thankful for it, no matter how different your culture is, or how hard it is. Present to the world the real you. Be bold. Then, you will never regret it.


**Quotes from My Not So Perfect Life, Sophie Kinsella


Chronicles Of The One

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset
The latest trilogy by Nora Roberts

The world is falling apart where millions of people are destroyed by a virus, DOOM!

What is this virus that able to make some people immune,

and which able to change its strains so rapidly?

That able to develop magical abilities in some of the post-apocalyptic survivors?

How does it relate to the circle of stones found in the woods?

The scary crows? What about it?

It is a combination of science and paranormal.

A parascience.

Very interesting story with exciting characters.

Never expect this from Nora Roberts.

A-must read!


Dear Karma

There’s a saying:

Keep your nose out of another’s mess.

Strictly Between Us by Jane Fallon is made for a real page turner. Believe it or not I finished reading it in a day. I find it to be both witty and ironic with the ridiculously funny evil plot twist which reminds me of Mean Girls. Except that this one involves grown-up characters who were not originally mean and secretly live a life of lies and deception and ends up with a divorce. Yup, life’s pretty messy, right.


I know it is hard for someone who is being overprotective. They don’t want their best friends to get hurt by their loved ones. But putting yourself into their personal life is a no-no. Absolutely a NO! It is okay to lend an advice or two on relationships. However, please let them talk it over and decide. It’s their marriage, not yours.

Dear Karma, I really hate you right now, you made your point. – Ottilie Weber, Family Ties
