Two Funerals, A Wedding Anniversary and A Family Reunion!

A lot has happened since I last blogged as as the title suggests, I had way too much to deal with and lost a little of my spunk along the way!

Tragically, a young cousin and an old uncle passed away within a month of each other and I thought I would never get over the first death when the second one came along! This threw me into a deep state of sadness which I could not overcome for a while. I did not want to do anything and my mind felt like it was in a state of nothingness. It was just blank and I was going through the motions.....

My husband came to the rescue by just being there for me and allowing me to cry whenever I needed to. What I would do without him I really do not know......it also helped that I had friends whom I could count on, thanks PPS!

I was back and raring to go soon enough and looked forward to spending some time with my beloved on our 11th wedding anniversary. We dressed up and spent an evening wining, dining and sharing our wonderful year together. I assure you ladies, it gets better as the years roll by! (at least for me it did)

The icing on the cake after the tragedies, was reconnecting with a lost branch of our family tree on my mum's side. After 26 years, my family and I met with some long lost nieces/nephews/cousins! What a blessing indeed it was for me to discover that I had 5 older cousins (when all along I was the eldest!) and to meet up at my place on Christmas day was a double blessing indeed!

So all in all, in the last months that I have been missing, what I really missed was writing and testing products and playing with make-up! I may have lost some members of my family but God gave me more than I lost by way of my new-found relatives. It was amazing to see each one of them and best of all.....I have connections in Singapore which means I would be able to get products from there not found in Malaysia to review for you my dear readers!

I pray that each and every one of you has a blessed year in 2011! Thank you for your loyal support.
