Three favourite Web comics on Webtoon

Hello fam! I know this post might not be the usual type of post I put up. However my life has been such a mess I needed something to unwind with, and without putting any effort in to it.

So I discovered Webtoon, which is a free app in the app store so you can get your hands on it easily.

My discover wasn’t the app itself, even though I was pretty surprised finding it, it was what I have found in it.

I found three comics on Webtoon that may help you unwind or just the distract you from your current problem so you could think straight afterwards. It does help if you wanna see things more clearly.

Side note : your mental health matters so don’t forget to relax in between situations. It is hard but possible.

This post might contain spoilers however I try to be as spoiler-free as possible.

So let’s continue… Shall we?

Lore Olympus: is a Web comic played in the Greek mythology. However there’s a twist. They are in today’s fashion (aka 21st century clothing) whereas the humans (mortals) are in still in early centuries (propably before Christ).

The artist chose one of the best legend to put in the main focus – in my opinion – which is the relationship between Hades and Persephone. I have to tell you this futuristic twist on their clothes and objects are pretty cool and the art style is pretty dope too. I recommend you to read it or at least give it a chance.

It is a romantic type of comic, which I am not really into usually, however this novel influenced me to look around a bit further.

This led me to…

Devil Is A Handsome Man : is also a romantic novel however it is full of mysteries and unclear scenes that keeps you there because you wanna know what exactly happened.

However, at first, I thought it was one of many web comics… But I refused to stop reading so I kept reading.. And thank god I did because it became so exciting after chapter 5 or 4 so I just couldn’t stop I finished this comic within a day (just like the previous comic).

It is also in the romance category however I think it also should be classed as fantasy, mystery or detective category because there are a lot of dots to connect.

If you a person who likes strong female characters as a main character I recommend this for you. Our main character, Xo – short for Xolia – is trying to find out who she really is and who exactly was she.

After this I wanted something different, no too much but different enough to not finish it within a day…

… And I found…

Love Advice from The Great Duke of Hell

I know this is a mouthful but this one leans into more of fantasy and comedy category. It is still romantic but in a different way.

It is a notice me sempai situation but it’s a guy “chasing” after his crush. Our main character is into occult for this reason and one day he successfully summons the Great Duke of Hell, which I can tell, not many mortals are capable of.

Without going into much detail and spoiling it for you (the title is enough spoiler imo), there are going to be scenes where you may feel awkward, or find it funny or just shake your head. It’s not exactly a comedy piece but I’ll admit it can be funny at times.

I love Web comics because I know it is hard drawing digitally and looking at the different between a newer chapter and an older chapter, seeing how much their art style improved over making the chapters feels me with joy and it is fascinating to see.

These people have a particular style that also pulled me in on reading there work. For me, it takes more than just a great art style to pull me in on the story. You won’t regret reading these however these are not for everyone.

Note: I am not sponsored by any of these artist who created these comics. Nor is Webtoon.

Skincare essentials for combination skin.

If you have combination skin then you might just feel me and my situation.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional makeup artist nor a dermatologist. Test the products on your neck before using them on your face.

I have combination skin, but it is so combination, my dry patches have oily patches, and my oily patches have dry patches. Also large pores and breakouts – if something dirty touches my face, and the sweat also a trigger for me to have breakouts too.

Found some products that might just be good for you as well as it was for me and these products also can be used for any other skin types! Good, isn’t it?

For my routine I use a three step rule I found on the Internet. You can also add additional steps if you want to.

The thee steps are, cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise. Sounds easy, right?

Cleanse

Cleansing is important because you need to wash off the day’s muck off your face especially if you live in a big city. Why? Because the pollution from the exhaust of the vehicles are cause of clogged pores and uneven skin tone.

I personally use Boots own Cucumber facial toner because

  • It’s for all skin types
  • Affordable
  • It is gentle
  • Effective
  • Has a cooling effect

I love this toner and it is very good for the price as well and I’d rather splurge on moisturizer and sheet masks than toners and exfoliants.

Exfoliate

In oder to have less breakouts you need to get rid of dead skin on your face and dead skin can clog up your pores too.

To exfoliate my skin I usually use a regular lip scrub or a homemade sugar scrub because they can do the trick and an exfoliant do not have to be expensive to be effective! But this is my take on it.

Additional step: if I want to be extra I tend to use some peel off mask or a clay mask before using a moisturiser.

Moisturise

This is my favourite step because this is when I can use the products I like to splurge on!

My skin gets irritated quickly after a strong cleanse and dry my skin out but this little bad boy saves it all the time.

H2O skin drink by tarte is so far the best moisturiser I have ever tried. It is light weight, minimal scent, and leaves my skin radiant. However if you don’t like to spend too much money on a moisturiser I would recommend you to either try a travel size pack by Tarte or use a moisturiser by Superdrug because it shouldn’t cost an arm and leg to have a healthy skin.

Additional step: just before using a moisturiser I use an anti-spot gel by e.l.f which can be drying on the skin I would definitely recommend to do this before you use any moisturiser or sheet mask.

A treat for the eyes

After I finished my using my moisturiser I refresh my eyes with the e.l.f Eye refresh roller so I could wake up fresh and bright in the morning. I also take it with me wherever I go.

FYI: this is just my way of dealing with combination skin.

Natural deodorants

Hello fam! Everyone loves to smell fresh and good but some spray products might contain a few ingredients that might not be so good for your underarms.

I collected some brand products that offer natural deodorant/s.

Please note that these deodorants don’t stop you from sweating. You shouldn’t stop yourself from sweating. 👇🏻👇🏻

https://uk.lush.com/article/what-deodorant-taking-sting-out-body-odour

Tarte Clean Queen Vegan deodorant

This is such a huge deodorant it took me nearly a year to use this up and I was also using other products too to try. It is a clay deodorant with lavender scent and it smells amazing also lasts long when you put it on.

Only problem is you might need to take a travel sized version of it with you because it isn’t antiperspirant so you will need to reapply it a bit often. For the scent I get from it I think it is worth it.

Clean Queen deodorant also conditions your underarms, at least that what I noticed, I could use it after a bad shaving rash without my skin getting irritated by it and the rash was gone after hours. – don’t use it as a rash cream though! It is not designed to be that!

Avalon Organics

I love this deodorant, it’s a liquid type, however I still have mixed feelings about it… The reason is it doesn’t last long, the scent does however the liquid is not. Scent is very lemony and for hours I smelt like a lemonade and it makes me feel clean too.

Lush natural deodorant in T’eo

I love this so much. It might sound expensive (£6.50 for 90g) however this lasts the longest I have tried. I really love lemon and lemongrass so this is a go to me and also has tea tree oil in it which I guess makes it antibacterial.

The only down fall to this product though is you can’t use it if you just freshly shaved your armpit because it can irritate your armpit.

FYI: this product is well loved so I do not want to show something in a really bad shape.

Skincare gems

Sometimes there are so many products that can be overlooked because there are just so many to choose from. I’m making this post to introduce a few things I have found or to help you explore something new.

Let’s get started!

Farmacy Coconut Gel hydrating Sheet mask and Green Clean cleansing balm

I came across this brand on Beautylish because when I ordered an item they put a sample in the package by Farmacy.

I got their Green Clean make up meltaway cleansing balm and I really liked it so I ordered the sheet mask above. I bought one for my mum as well. It was so packed with the serum we had to use the both side of the sheets… After the first use we put them in containers (not in the same container!!) and the next day we used it again.

My mum is over 50 so it really showed that she used a moisturiser and it plumped her skin up she really looked younger. I never thought I would say that to her ever but it did work.

I apologise for not having a picture of the sheet mask I completely forgot to document it so, that’s an oopsie on my part, sorry! 😅

Tarte – drink of H2O hydrating boost moisturizer

This is on the pricey side but this product is amazing. It is light weight, minimal scent and it really hydrates my skin after a heavy cleansing “ritual”.

I got my H2O moisturizer in a value pack,because I wasn’t sure if I would like it or hate it with a passion, but I usually buy a set of minis because I like to explore more for my money and it works out cheaper sometimes.

E.l.f Acne fighting spot gel

I love this product because it works quickly, the products I have used before didn’t work this fast as this did. I can just roll it on a spot before going out (on a no makeup day or before a tinted moisturizer) or using it in my routine before bed. It is also sleek so I don’t have to worry about it taking too much space in my bag. Only problem is the fact that it can be a bit drying on the skin so this is why I use it before using any type of moisturizer, and I do recommend doing that way.

Witch hazel

Any brand of Witch Hazel is great for cleaning your skin or wounds. I use it when my dumb ass pops a few spots that should have been left alone…

However it does help in case you mess up your face because you’re a popaholic. It shrinks the spot and the scar if you popped your spot. Sometimes when I get really bad breakouts and the sun is out I put the solution on and let the witch hazel and the sun work their magic.

Before buying any of the products mentioned above I would recommend you to look up the ingredients and/or do a patch test on your neck.

Disclaimer: I am not a professional makeup artist nor a dermatologist. I am not sponsored by any of the brands mentioned I bought and buy products with my own money.

Television shows from the 20th century you need to watch.

Do you like good television programmes? Are you interested in good TV shows from the previous century?

I gathered a few of the older television shows I love so much and I still watch to this day to unwind. Hope it will entertain you too!

Warning: this post might contain spoilers

Murder She Wrote is an American television show starred by Angela Lansbury, who played our main character, Jessica Fletcher, famous mystery writer and ‘amateur’ detective. This TV series mostly plays in the fictional Cabot Cove where our hero discovers secrets and solves murder mysteries and gets in trouble where ever she goes.

Why do I think it’s good?

Our main character is a woman and it is not your typical old lady in your town. It plays in the 80s and 90s. It also helps me taking a break from the everyday gore you see in almost every TV series.

There’s nothing wrong with blood and gore… To a certain extent but this particular series as much as I find it exciting it still helps me relax because it just sucks you in.

However if you are not really into old TV series I will doubt any of these TV shows will be enjoyable for you.

You can find it on YouTube if you wanted to watch it.

Cons of Murder She Wrote

Sometimes if you pay enough attention to what they’re saying in the episode you will figure out who the killer is. By the way this only happened to me once.

Diagnosis: Murder is also an American TV series, starred by Dick van Dyke and Berry van Dyke, and it is considered as comedy, it does have some humour to it, however I think it is also more of a murder mystery / drama than just comedy.

Our dear Dick van Dyke plays one of the main characters Dr. Mark Sloan, the Chief of Internal Medicine at the Community General Hospital who is also an occasional consultant to the police department in the local area. He helps solving murders with his son Steve, played by Berry van Dyke.

Long story short: He solves murders and investigates the crime behind the back of the police if he is told no to solving it alone and it mostly ends up a success.

Why do I think it’s good?

The episodes are lonelger than the Murder She Wrote episodes, which gives me more time trying to solve the mystery on my own and we bet on the person who we think the killer is (preferably with a friend who watches it with me).

When you watch it you think you know who the killer is but in the end or most of the time you are going to be wrong. There’s always a twist.

Cons: 1, sometimes people might find it too long for their liking and get bored quickly and I understand that this is also not for everyone. 2, you might find it slow for your liking because it is more than an hour and there als some parts that also go a bit slower which I call breaks because it slows the events down and throws some key elements in which you would think had nothing to do with the storyline or the next one.

Midsomer Murders is a British television show based on the crime-novel series, called Chief Inspector Barnaby, written by Caroline Graham and adapted by Anthony Horowitz.

This show started in 1997 and still goes on to present days because of its success in viewership and marketed in other countries.

Our detective, DCI Tom Barnaby, played by John Nettles, and his solves murder, as it is his job, in Causton, Midsomer.

Fun fact: Midsomer is a fictional county (as well as the town, Causton) and the different locations of Midsomer was spread out in Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Northern Hampshire.

This is tv show doesn’t have that much gore in it but the way characters are killed is pretty creative and impressive and it isn’t that censored as you might think. If you just exploring these older TV shows I would definitely recommend you’d start with this one.

Why do I think it’s good?

The reason I started watching Midsomer Murders because I wanted to try something new and I was tired of seeing the same episodes of Miss Marple. To be quite honest this show surprised me a lot and it might be a very unpopular opinion but I think Midsomer Murders is better than Sherlock. – oopsie!

The episodes are about an hour long but you don’t feel it at all. It sucks you in so much you get annoyed at the commercials.

Cons

I might be biased but I haven’t found any cons yet.

I hope you enjoyed my blog and you’d watch some of the show I listed above. 👆🏻👆🏻

Mobile phone games you should try- with caution

Most people nowadays have at least one or two games on their phone.

Mobile phone games can be relaxing or annoying to the point you get frustrated. I collected some games which might not be new to you or you might have heard of them before. This list will be updated with a few more games so I apologise if it’s not long enough yet.

Before I continue, I would like to state that as much as games are fun, your priorities should come first.

I used to play a lot with this game and I am really fond of it too. Homescapes is about renovating and restoring an old mansion our main character, Austin, grew up in. This game is a single player but if you are online you can enter tournaments which can give you prizes, and you also get daily prizes, which are boosters. To restore the mansion you need to complete tasks, to compete a task you need stars. The way you get a star by playing a mini game, which is similar to Candy Crush, and you need to make matches of similar items.

You need to get trough different levels and the difficulty of the level always changes. You can easily get through the levels by using boosters. If you loose on the level you loose a life out of five lives.

It is a neat game if you turn away from the “pay to win” aspect of this game. Regardless of the daily rewards and the tourney prizes you won’t always be able to get through the stage without boosters, unless you try very hard. I needed to do a level 10 times before I beat the level…

Badland: is a cute adventure mobile phone game that is also available for Xbox and PlayStation 4 and other platforms as well. This is a single player and a multiplayer game in one.

I used to own this game too and I loved it and it is pretty straight forward game.

If you played Ori and The Blind Forest then I think you would love this game too because Badland has a foresty background to it.

There are different levels you need to complete, however some of the levels are locked and you can only unlock it if you buy certain levels. They’re not that expensive to buy though.

I used to play this game a lot but I am not up to date with the changes within the app.

My little Pony: OK you might have heard of this game. Yes you can laugh all you want but this game is still cute. If you didn’t know The My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is based on the animated My Little Pony series developed by Gameloft for iOS and Android devices.

This is a single player game with multiplayer interactions. The difference between this game and the previous one is you can only get prizes by leveling up. Obviously you still will get competitions and fulfilling tasks will also lend you rewards as well as the daily game called Balloon Pop which I think you can count as a daily reward but you won’t get it unless you pop the balloons.

This game is the most enjoyable for me is because 1, it’s cute 2, doesn’t take long to level up 3, it’s about ponies.

As much as I love these free to download games there are a few cons of these.

The other side of the industry

Micro-transactions are one of the few things I dislike about these… Well of course they need to make money somehow but then it is not a AAA game on the Xbox and I don’t like the thought of my hard earned money landing into an already rich coperation’s pocket.

I wouldn’t be fussed about it if the animators had better conditions to work in.

In the eyes of the corporation, these people are disposable. They are just bodies, they can be replaced by another body. These companies will do anything to keep their shareholders happy.

I’m not saying that you can’t buy some of the bundles you want in your game, because I have done that before, but as soon as I knew the things I just mentioned I felt a bit bitter about spending my money on any of these games.

Here are some useful links you can read too. 👇🏻

Dark side of working in the video game industry: 100-hour weeks and on-the-spot sackings

76% of game developers still labor under crunch conditions

Mental health and physical health of the developers are also important, not just satisfying the greedy shareholders.

How would YOU feel if you had to work in conditions like that?

Well… This post turned dark quite quickly. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Worst dry shampoo I have ever tried so far…

I usually do not like to bash products nor brands and I like to find positive things about products but this monstrosity made my hair have the worst day of its life…

Before I jump right into the cons of this product I would like to state that even though my hair felt fuzzier than a raccoon’s butt hole, and possibly looked like one, it does do the job. I had an “OK” looking hair for several days. But only on the top of me head.

My ends got so dry it started breaking… When you spray your hair on top you would expect some of the spray to get on your ends.. But this just dried the living spirit out of it…

I’ll admit it does give some volume but the volume doesn’t make up for the bird nest like creature on my head…

You might wonder what exactly is this product?

Well let me show you the budget friendly curse for the hair.

The Asda dry shampoo! If I will be complete honest with you I have to tell you that this product could be improved. As much as I hate the fact of this drying the sh*t out of my hair. In fact my hair didn’t even want me to use this product so much it didn’t get greasy for a week… But this product in fact can be better because it doesn’t have a bad smell however it is really harsh on the hair especially if you have combo or dry ends.

Until that happens I would recommend some other products instead.

Morrisons dry shampoo is a good alternative for this and it has the same price tag as the product above. Which is £1.50!

Superdrug dry shampoo is the most inexpensive alternative it ranges from £1-1.50 and they have amazing range too.

Batiste is on the more expensive side but I love how light weight the powder is on the hair however it runs out quickly. If you don’t wanna buy anything else but Batiste then I would recommend to buy it from Superdrug because it is cheaper there. The price may differ depending on how much mls you buy.

Makeup brands you might have not heard of

As woman, sometimes I do find myself intrigued by some of the products out there, whether it is from a smaller indie brand or a well known company/brand.

Beauty Bar Baby is an indie brand you can find on etsy or visit their official website.This brand is cruelty-free with vegan options. FYI their highlighters are amazing! They also have a range of other products from liquid lipsticks to eyeshadows! Best of all, it is handmade too! However they are based in the U.S. so you might need to pay shipping and customs if you live in the UK! The prices are pretty affordable nonetheless.

To be honest I wish I was sponsored by them.

STYL Cosmetics: is also a cruelty-free brand I found, and their products are also to die for. My personal favourite is the Fluid Fx which is a mixing medium. It also makes any of your loose pigments waterproof. They are a lesser known company but looking at their products I think they do deserve some love.

I’m giving you guys a 10% off* discount code if you’re really interested in trying out some of their products. The code is PanicFanny and just click on this link here: stylcosmetics.com/PanicFanny

*please note that this discount code is available for orders of, $20 and up.

Sugarpill: OK you probably heard of them before or at least saw them on Instagram but this brand also should get a lot of exposure because their eyeshadows and lipsticks are just so unbelievably good, my whole body could scream.

You are new to this brand or haven’t heard of it before but interested in trying it out then here is a quick intro on the brand. Sugarpill is a vegan and cruelty-free brand that creates amazing makeup products and their packaging is also stylish.

I personally own many of their liquid lipsticks and a few of their bullet lipsticks, which I used to hate wearing (bullet lipsticks, I mean) in general but Sugarpill’s lipstick formula made me fall back in love with traditional lipsticks. On top of that they smell yummy. However if you don’t like sweet scented lipsticks, these lipsticks have honeysuckle in them (look at the ingredients on the website) which makes the lipstick smell really sweet and yummy.

As a person who always has been the casually dressed type I still find it odd to be interested in makeup. I bet there are a lot of people out there who feel the same.

Disclaimer: I am not a beauty guru nor a makeup artist I base my thoughts on personal experience about the products and brands mentioned. Please also do a patch test!
