Swallow : Movie talk & Review

Salam and Hello lovelies!

Alright this time I wanna share about this movie that I just watched
earlier, Swallow. It's more into a psychological and drama genre,
since it's clearly shows those aspects a lot in this movie.
Before you proceed, I gotta warn you that this talk include such
massive spoiler regarding this movie okayy, so if you haven't
watch it yet and planning to, read at your own risk okay hehe.

Movie poster & info overview below, credit to Google

It's 6.4 on IMDb, so not bad yeah

Some of the casts

Alright for those whom haven't watch, this movie is about Hunter,
a stay at home wife whom married a wealthy guy. Soon, she's pregnant
but picking up with such strange habit of eating things that she shouldn't -
or having Pica - the eating / psychiatric disorder in more accurate terms.
She started with ice cubes, which I think is somehow normally relatable,
then going on with more strange and up to dangerous things, such as
a small marble ball, the pin it thing, battery, paper, even dirts and oh dear god
it's literally everything that you shouldn't be eating and can harm yourself.

One of the scene in this movie, credit from the official trailer

The visual for this Pica moment in this movie is great, I praise it really as
we can feel like she's really taking them, you know.
Like you get that uneasy feeling, the cautious feeling, the yucky and all that.
It might call up for some graphic disturbance for some people I guess
but as for me, nope, it's not that extreme but it's good, it's help you to
address the habits, like, not feeling fake or something, the urgencies, you know.

So I did some reading regarding Pica, I found that this disorder is actually
more common in children than in adults, but the exact prevalence in adults
is unknown. If it's occurs in adults, it tends to be associated with
intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia or pregnancy.
Other factors that said to be associated with Pica are anemia and low levels
of education, which also associated to the low economic background as well.
By far, the treatment that one could get if they're suspected with Pica is by
monitoring their eating habits, correcting the poor nutritions and cravings,
and also close collaboration with mental health team and more.

Alright back to this movie, hehe, I think it's brilliant because it showed us
many aspects in our life, or someone's life, that perhaps we don't know
or cared enough about, yet it's important. Indeed understanding the mental
health is really are important and could give such huge impact on one's life.
This movie definitely screams for mental health awareness, and the
acknowledgement of it is truly are the essence.

Everyone had their own past, their own beginning, and their own family issues.
Little that you know, those usually are the starter pack for wether a good mental
health or not or so, you know. He or she might seems fine, happy, content,
but always look out for their mental health.

In this movie, from the surfaces of Hunter's life, we might thought that she's lucky,
that we wanted to be like in her place and all, yeah the wealthy life, generally good in laws,
stay at home without worries, yada yada, but when we can see it deeper, for me,
I can see how lonely she is, how unhappy she is, and how she needed love and support
or compassion from the people around her, but that's not really what she get.

Watch out for her face expression during this scene. 
Her eyes, well, by the look on her face, 
definitely showed all of the exhaustion she bear.

The crunching the ice moment while she was 
having dinner with his husband and in laws

They (mostly the husband) often sounded like downgraded her, sometimes it's like she's nothing,
like, hmm I guess you'll get it when you watch it. Then when her past been revealed,
it feels like it came more to the pieces, you know. The connection of what happened, then
how was she throughout that until she got married and everything.
Yeah I hope u get what I said when you've watch it later yeah hehe.

So, from my point of view, in order to regain her own motivation, her own self confident
or you know, the feeling to wanna feels like you've achieve something, you're someone special,
you can do / control things, yeah things like that, urge her into that Pica disorder.

Instead of trying to understand or getting close and helping in a fruitful way, they
tend to drove her away more - like when her husband scolded her after
they (he and his family) found out about her Pica eating habits, and even blackmailed
to divorce if she refuse to follow their plan upon going to stay at the psychiatry house
for many months. I know that's not really a bad thing but the way they handled it
or approach is not right, you know.

Well the husband wasn't really a good husband from the start, as he often neglected
her emotionally, like not really paying attention during their conversation or
spend time together, and the most bitchy thing that her husband did once they knew
about her condition is that he told everyone at his office about his wife's disorder,
and, trying to own it like he did the right thing.
Yeah you gotta watch the birthday party's scene huhu.

Dinner with her husband at home. Seems gloomy 
and lonely right, even with company. 
This reminds me of that Modern Loneliness song by Lauv. 

that moment when she's trying to have a nice conversation

The birthday party moment

Indeed, basically, the way of the approach, help, is like, they didn't know about
mental health, like, guys, they should have different approach in order to help.
Like even the helper / bodyguard Luay seemed more compassionate to help
her, as well as the gentle, talking method by her psychiatrist in each of her visits.

I gotta say bravo to Haley Bennet (starring as Hunter) because she carried her character
well enough. This Hunter character had developed smooth and great throughout the movie,
as well as others. The ending is understandable as well, not sure bout what you guys
will think of it but I gotta say, that's understandable as in perhaps her way of starting
a new life. In addition, somehow, I kinda stand with her decision before the ending scene
of which she's not falling for her husband speeches right before he went mad again
after that haha but yess, good for you girl.

Well, overall, it's a great movie indeed. Might be heavy for some people but it's not for me.
The issues aren't like the usual indeed yet that's what I like about this movie as well.
Kinda reminisce me of the Joker movie (which I don't find it as heavy as well),
but this one is more into marriage vibes. If you love a movie that can make you think
wether a lot or yeah a fruitful of it, be it during or after watching,
then yes I think this one can suits you too. I'm indeed basically a fan of psychological
genre, indeed especially psycho thriller but this kind of psycho is definitely on my list too.
One can learn a lot from such psychology related movies or series, and even books too.

Okay this seems like a lot right haha gosh thanks to those who stayed till the end!
I think these tidbits here are fairly enough right, and hopefully got lots of great or beneficial
insights and sharing that you guys get from my movie talk here this time too.
I usually shared little review on my ig stories as well if you notices but indeed, had shared
some here too, like for years now. Feel free to scroll and read my previous movie talk
here okayy in case you haven't or new to my site here hehe.
Till next time, stay safe and have a great week ahead lovelies!

NYX Cosmetics for Sabrina Limited Edition Set : Unboxing & First Impression

Salam and Hi lovelies!

Alright this time I wanna share with you guys about
this recently on fire, the Limited Edition
#NYXCosmeticsforSabrina #ChillingAdventuresofSabrina
sets by NYX Cosmetics.

In case you didn’t know, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
series are now had aired up until Season 3 of this show, which
you guys can watch the full series for each season on Netflix okay.

Netflix and chill hehee

Of course, I’m one of the fans of the show, and by the time
NYX Cosmetics came up with this Limited Edition
Sabrina collection, my inner witch definitely screams
my hearts out and I can’t stop myself from stalking this sets!
Seriously, like no covens can help me haha!

So yes this sets have been on my wishlist right away! Yet then
I came across NYX Cosmetics giveaway’s post on last February,
in which the winner will win these NYX Cosmetics for Sabrina sets.
So yes I set out to try and use the opportunity that been given right in
front of me. Little did I know, my luck blessed me this time as
I won the giveaway contest yayy! Felt like such a great birthday
month’s luck and awesome birthday treats in advance as well
since indeed they announce it on March, my birthday month, hehee.
I’m really grateful for the treats this month yayy alhamdulillah!

These two are from my ig story 😁

Alright back to the sets here, hehee I’ve made a video upon
unboxing the moment I got my hands on the prizes.
You guys can watch the video as attached below, mind you
please pardon my excitement if it’s too annoying to bear huhu.
But yes do watch if you’re interested in this sets as well or
perhaps curious or anything, since I do share some input - like
bit of review for the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream, close up and
what’s in or with this sets, the look, and everything.
So yeah I hope it’s helpful / insightful enough for a first
impression as well.

As for makeup look video, I plan to do it later / next and you guys
can watch me doing the swatches at that time as well, okay?
So yes better yet if you guys follow me on my instagram /
subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven’t yet because I always
update things there, not just about makeup but many more.
Well I’ll definitely share my makeup look using these babies be it on
my postings or ig story etc, okayy.
You can find my social media directory on the menu above okayy.

Indeed I still am filled with excitement up until now haha!
I’ve already tried every SMLC in this sets, feel free to see
all the pics below okayy. Like I said in the video earlier,
the SMLC range is one of my favourite and I totally recommended
this range hehee. I loveeee all of these colours as well!

Weird Sisters set
Half Witch set

Fright Club set

As for the Spellbook Palette, the colours definitely are pigmented
and beautiful as well! I can easily blend them smoothly, as I excitedly
tried swatching them using my fingers only without any concealer or anything,
yeah you know, to see how it goes barely. So from my pic below, that’s when
I tried the ‘Sweet 16’ + ‘Mortuary’ along with little shimmer of ‘Ambrose’,
and with just little swatch and blending, I’m ecstatic that it came out pretty!
Only the shimmering one is quite messy to deal at the moment (so many shimmers
falling everywhere, the shimmer seems fragile upon applied)
but I think perhaps when I do it properly next time, it won’t be that messy.
Anyhow, I’m indeed impressed and literally happy with the Spellbook palette hehee.

Some of the eyeshadow’s swatches. Indeed those are 
the results of one light swatch only each okayy

Didn’t use any brush or any other eye makeup items to do 
this simple eyeshadow yet it came out great enough right! 

These are the swatches for these 3 cheeks section,
ohh I lovee the colours! 

One thing that I haven’t shared yet in the video above
is that there are few shades that actually not meant for eyes, like
literally got the warning at the back of this palette. See below.

These two are the close up for this Spellbook palette

I’m definitely not a pro but since it already stated that, I guess
we can just use those selected shades on our cheeks or elsewhere,
as I can imagine it could be useful for creative makeup look,
or even as highlighter and all as well, right.

Overall, the colours are all great, the textures etc are great too,
and since this sets can definitely serves as almost complete
makeup set, so I think it’s a great to go as well. No need
to bring several eyeshadow palettes to any occasions anymore
since this one Spellbook palette already got variety of shades
that we can use and style them in various kind of occasions.
Convenient and pretty!

Well, I hope my sharing here somehow can give lots of
insight especially if you’re eyeing to buy them as well.
In addition to that, I want to thank to every beautiful souls here
that had spending time to watch and read my sharing okayy!
May you all have a great witchkend and ahead! Hehee ❤️

Kesuma Jiwa & The Last Collection Story : Rilovers Edition

Salam & Hi lovelies!

It’s been like a month that I haven’t shared anything
here with you guys right, hence felt like sharing
these things that been happening hehe.

Alright if you’ve been following me closely on my
social medias especially my Instagram , you might
noticed that I actively shared things on my ig story,
including Dato' Rizalman’s updates - yeah since I’m 
one of his fans, and as everyone know, 
the Kesuma Jiwa + Dato' last collection fashion show
was truly amazing, followed by the speechless
kind of news regarding Dato' retirement in
fashion industry as well.

Kesuma Jiwa 2020 at Istana Budaya 

These two are some of the Kesuma Jiwa 2020 moments.
you guys can find more on Dato' IG if you like okayy

Indeed that news definitely bumped most of us but I
believe we all understand his decision and pray for his best.
Well in conjunction to that, of course, it feels like a must,
to have at least one from his last collection or the
Kesuma Jiwa merchandises.

one of my ig story regarding 
Rizalman For Zalora 2020 Collection

I’ve been eyeing a lot from this last collection since
every piece are exquisite enough haha but yeah one that truly
got me totally wanting it are the Puspawangi Kurung, which
also comes in perfect timing since I’m indeed in search for
dark purple outfit for my sister in law’s wedding this April.
If you guys remember / noticed that I’ve shared my first mission
early this year consists of searching for two colours, yeah that,
and this dark purple being one of it hehe.

So, I aimed to get that Puspawangi Kurung on Rizalman Garage
Sale 2020 which happened few days after the Kesuma Jiwa show.
Unfortunately, no luck for me there to grab my Puspawangi
Kurung, since no size for me & no restock for the next two days.
Indeed I’ve been followed closely my personal shopper’s update
for all full three days that she were there, battling for us huhu.

the disappointment during Rizalman Garage Sale 2020 

the sweatshirt I've been talking about hehe 
(one of Kesuma Jiwa merchandises as well)

Well I did grab one sweatshirt (Kesuma Jiwa merchandise)
because yeah it’ll be great to had something, since you know,
there’ll be no more Kesuma Jiwa show, Rizalman Garage Sale
and even Rizalman for Zalora collection after this. So yes the
Rizalman Jawi Sweatshirt came to cure for my Puspawangi
no show heheh.

Then yes, I’m still not giving up in order to get
my Puspawangi Kurung, so I kept my eyes upon
Zalora in case they restock, which they did yayy!
Twice actually, with only one per size restock.
Yet I managed to grab mine upon the second restock,
so yasssss thank you Zalora hehe.

you can find this igstory (video) highlighted 
on my profile under Fashion okayy

So there it is, as you can see from my sharing on igstory
(You can see the pic featured here as well yea) I made it yayyy hehee!
In addition to that, my dark purple colour
outfit search mission is now complete too haha.

my sharing on my igstory regarding the mission 

I'm a happy girlllll heheeee

The sweatshirt is in M size (since that’s the smallest size available)
yes it’s huge for me but I don’t mind, as it’s comfy and look
great to wear as well especially for hijabista. Totally could hide
everything that needed to hide with this sweatshirt hehe.

trying the sweatshirt hehee

my Puspawangi yayyy!

lighting was not that good in my room at that moment but this is the close up 
of the material & one of the sewing thingy I've been talking about

As for the Puspawangi Kurung, I got it in M size as well,
since I prefer it to be a bit loose. Need to alter a bit of course
since I’m not that tall but that’s just the usual. The design is
definitely beautiful as expected, but I’m not sure if it’s Zalora
or whatever - the kurung sewing quality is like the kurung had
been pulled or something, as I can see that it’s not as intact as it should
or usually be. Well I think that’s fine, just overall I’m indeed
ecstatic with my grab. Can’t wait to officially wear it next month hehee.
Stay tuned for my ootd pic maybe? Hehee.

Well, I guess that’s all for my babbling this time. Thanks for stopping by
yea lovelies, I wish you all been having a great day and ahead!
Till then, stay safe and insyaAllah we'll hello again next time okayy 😉
