2018 in Review

Word! I was challenged to participate in the ‘2018 in Review’, so here goes…

What did you do in 2018 that you’d never done before?

I watched ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ for the first time.  Kris is soooo coolio!

Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? 

No and no.

What was the best thing you bought?

Charlotte Tilbury’s Collagen Lip Bath! This is a must have beauty staple. I hardly wore any lipsticks/lipglosses since discovering this treasure (well most of the time anyway)! Oh, and my Adidas leopard print track top.

What did you get really, really, really excited about?

Going back to the States. I was so excited before/during/after the trip that I got stranded in NYC thanks to Virgin Atlantic (no really, thank you!) abandoning the return flight just before take off at Newark airport (true story). This was not the first time I got stranded at Newark (but that’s another story). Also, I had this on repeat, it’s boss (oh yeah? YEAH!)!

Walking that walk, talk that slick talk…

What song will always remind you of 2018?

 If the song has to be from 2018, then I would choose this:

What was the most embarrassing thing that happened to you in 2018?

I don’t know. Perhaps falling over somewhere. I’m always falling over, here, there, and everywhere…

What was your favorite TV program?

Killing Eve, obvs.

Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?

Hmm…I had to shut some people out of my life, in proper Filipino style but there you go. It is what it is.

What was the best book you read?

I can’t decide! Either…

What kept you sane?

Friends and Pink G&Ts.

Who was the best new person you met?

That would be telling…but I’ll leave this here as a lovely memory. If the video still below does it any justice, that’s me as Nicki in awe…


Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2018

Not taking life too seriously & to keep trying my best. Some sad events happened last year and was a wake-up call for me. In the words of Monica (of the Brandy sort): ‘It’s really frustrating. I am a huge supporter of everyone in the business…We know that as different as we are, there’s room for both of us.’

And one more (leaving this here)…

Did I mention that Kris is so coolio?!

Thank you for reading! Shara x
