#FeatureFriday – Christmas and Chill with Audrey!
Before we know it, it is already December which also means our last Feature Friday of 2016. There’s only 3 more Sundays till 2017, are you ready for the New Year?! We’re not sure about you but Audrey definitely is!
This December, we have Audrey, also known as Audreyxaudrey as our Featured Alpha of the month. A self-acclaimed carefree and easy-going woman, Audrey loves sharing her beautifully taken OOTDs, flat lays and mouthwatering food pictures on social media. Now let’s take a peek into her life 🙂
- Hello Audrey, tell us something not many may know about you!
I started my social media journey by sharing my outfit photos. Slowly, my follower count started to build up and it motivated me to start sharing my #OOTD on a daily basis! I have made quite a number of friends during my social media journey and I am so thankful for them.
Other than social media, I also love playing darts! I am not a professional player but I can be found at the darts café during the weekends.
A funny fact about me is, I can’t pronounce the word “grille” or “thrill” or any word that has “rill” in it!
- How would you describe your social media journey thus far?
I am enjoying every part of it! I enjoy taking pictures, posting pictures and sharing about my life. I have friends asking me, “how does it feel that people whom you don’t know personally knows so much about you?!” I think it’s really fine to be sharing stuff online. Fortunately, I don’t get many inappropriate comments online. I have also learnt that most people actually do keep bad comments to themselves. So, things are good!
- Christmas is approaching, what is on your wish list this year?
I wish to have an endless supply of all kinds of make-up to play with. All my life, I had been wondering, what’s with girls spending so much on so many types of make-up. Now, I am not so proud to say that I am one of them!
I also wish to be in the pink of health and… I wish for a life time of happiness. Cliché, but #fact. Last but not least, I wouldn’t mind adding one more bag to my collection! Haaa!
- What are your favourite Christmas songs and why?
My favourite Christmas song is not the most exciting one… it is “All I Want for Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey. Aside from that, I like “When Christmas Comes to Town”, the soundtrack for The Polar Express.
I really love Christmas movies though, and my favourite is “Christmas with the Kranks”! It’s a very old movie but it does the perfect job in getting me into the Christmas mood.
- Share with us how Christmas was like when you were young versus now!
Christmas when I was young was all about the excitement I get when receiving presents! However, nowadays Christmas is all about gatherings and picking out gifts for my loved ones. I really enjoy doing it because I feel that it’s a very thoughtful process. PLUS! I love to wrap and decorate presents. Here are two of the gifts which I have prepared for this Christmas!
- Do you have any tips on dressing up this festive season?
Christmas is all about that sheen on your dress and WINE RED/FOREST GREEN! In other words, Christmas is the season to go bold or go home.
I have a new pair of sequin heels this season and I’m so in love with them, they’re perfect for this season!
- Describe your skin type and what your beauty routine is before a big night out.
I have oily skin but thankfully it’s under control now. My beauty routine consists of a 6-step skincare, followed by make-up and HAIR! Styling my hair is the most important thing to do before heading out. Just a fun fact, if I can only pick ONE thing to do before I head out, I’ll pick hair-styling. I’m actually debating if I would pick hair-styling or sunblock but I think I’ll go with the former.
- What are some fashion or beauty items that you are loving currently?
My latest addition to my vanity area is the Urban Decay Basics palette. I love it because the colours are neutral so it’s perfect for an eyeshadow beginner like me!
Next would be my Valentino Lock bag in the perfect shade of dusty pink! I carry it almost every day because its so small and convenient. Most importantly, it goes well with almost all my outfits!
Last but not least, the Laneige BB cushion. This product covers uneven skin tone perfectly and gives me a perfect dewy finish. Absolutely loving it!
- As a happy go lucky person, how do you overcome challenges and obstacles that come your way?
I try to face all challenges and obstacles with a positive mindset. There are no problems which can’t be solved. Sometimes, all it takes is a little bit of courage to make things right.
- Lastly, what are your hopes and wishes for the New Year?
In the New Year, I wish to have peace in my life. I also hope to master swimming, so I that can head to Cebu and swim with the whale sharks. Haha!
With that, I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
A Merry Christmas from all of us at Churp Churp to Audrey too! May the New Year bring lots of love and happiness to her loved ones and we can’t wait to embark on new adventures next year with Audrey. Head on over to her blog as she shares her festive gift guide and follow her on social media and Dayre for all things fashion, food and fun!
