Tous Malaysia

Tous Malaysia had their grand launch at their store in Pavillion last week.
I am an absolute fan of Tous and was eager to go through their collection.

Tous is a Spanish brand and it is pronounced as 'Toast'.

Wore my very own Tous jewelry to the event =)

Their gorgeous designs made up mostly with their brand logo- a teddy bear!

Gwyneth Paltrow is the newest face of Tous!

You might be wondering, why teddy bear as the logo?

Here's a little story behind the teddy bear:

 Salvador Tous Blavi and his wife Teresa Ponsa Mas opened a small watch repair shop, 
which little by little ventured into the jewelry world. In 1965, Salvador Tous, the founder's son, married Rosa Oriol. The couple joined forces to pool their respective talent, experience and creativity in order to produce a whole new language, expressed in jewelry. In 1985, Rosa Oriol was inspired by what would become one of the most classic symbols of the brand name:
"During the course of my travels, I saw a little teddy bear in a shop window and it made me remember some wonderful moments from my childhood. So I thought: Why not make this teddy bear out of gold? It has become a good luck charm for millions of people all over the world, and for us, it marked the beginning of our international expansion. Even though we are continuously creating new collections, the teddy bear is always present in different shapes and forms. He is indeed very dear to me!"

I really love the teddy bear design. It's not only cute, but it's girlish and feminine hehe

Amber Chia was present at the event to model Tous accessories.

Couldn't miss a selfie with her =)

They provided gel manicure service as well.

Mine! So pweety hehe

Thank you Tous for a wonderful event and congratulations on your launch!

Make It Happen with Maybelline

Malaysia's No.1 makeup brand launched a brand new tagline, 'Make It Happen', calling out to young Malaysian women to go after her dreams without doubts and fear and instead with confidence, positivity and creativity that comes with the use of makeup.

You would be familiar to their previous tagline, 'Maybe she's born with it, maybe it's Maybelline'. But with their new tagline, they are asking women to define her own beauty in her own terms, but with a drive and go-getter spirit that transcends beauty to an action to make whatever matters to her happen.

Essentially this expresses how Maybelline New York empowers women today to define her beauty, liver her life and make it happen.

Maybelline held a roadshow at Midvalley last week where they were having great promotions at the centre court.

During the roadshow, there was a short beauty workshop by celebrity makeup artist, Steven Sunny.

He gave a makeup demo to us girls on how to define our beauty through makeup with makeup techniques.

His bare faced model is about to undergo a transformation hehe

Ta-dah! Simple yet it makes a statement.

One thing I've learnt from his session is that, girls shouldn't be lazy to put on makeup. At least go out with a red lipstick which can make your look pop without looking pale. Play with makeup and don't be afraid to use colours because it can define your beauty and we girls should always be looking our best even when you're out just for shopping. Makeup was made for us so we must make full use of it. I have to admit, I can be quite lazy to put on my makeup early in the morning before work but from now on, I'm going to Make It Happen and be more hardworking to enhance my beauty with makeup =)

Batman vs Superman

So who won?

Wonder Woman did.

Honestly, all the bad reviews you have been hearing about this movie is true.
Unfortunately, this blockbuster was a disappointment.

Between Batman and Superman, Wonder Woman stole the show! You would have seen her in the Fast & Furious movies. Gal Gadot exudes confidence, posh, sexiness and a really hot woman heroine! I am definitely eager to watch the Wonder Woman movie.

Sorry about the digression. Now, back to this movie, the plot was bad, the storyline was worst, the scenes were confusing and I really cannot believe I am finding so much fault in this movie which I have been so eager to watch previously.

Ben Affleck, my all time favourite let me down this time. They shouldn't have compressed so much into one movie. And the reason Batman was fighting Superman was ridiculous. I.just.cant.

My rating: 2 stars
1 for Wonder Woman and 1 more because I love Ben Affleck though he acting in a bad storyline couldn't salvage the movie.

3CE duo color face blush

3CE Makeup brand is a hugely popular brand from Korea. If you're a big fan of Korean makeup, you cannot miss out 3CE as one of its top brand.
It's a huge relief that this brand is now available in Malaysia!

Thanks to www.bffsays.com, I managed to get my hands on this beautiful duo color face blush!

True to its name, it's a 2 in 1 blush.

It is compact, lightweight and easy to handle.

2 beautiful colours to form a mash of hue on the cheek.

I picked Creme De Violette because of its unique lavender hue and with a blend of pink, it creates a youthful glow on the cheeks.

Firstly, swatches of the individual colour shows a matte powdery texture. It is highly pigmented so be careful not to swipe too much on the cheek otherwise it becomes unnatural.

Now, it's time to test the blend on the cheek.
The fine powder glides smoothly on the cheek without "crumbling" or "falling out".

The lavender hue brightens up the apple of the cheek and the blend of pink adds a healthy glow.
Absolutely love the mash of colours! This is quickly becoming my newest favourite blush =)

 A before and after picture shows how just a swipe or two of blush makes a difference in brightening up the skin.

It's not everyday that you see a lavender blush being sold but I think 3CE found a very unique colour in the mixture which is quickly becoming one of its bestseller. The colours complement each other to create a long lasting glow.

A radiant, healthy flush, perfect for a day out!
3CE never fail to disappoint me with their products =')

I'm bringing this compact blush everywhere with me hehe!

Guardian Makeover promotes confidence!

The highly anticipated Guardian Makeover is back! Themed Confidence Creation, Guardian’s annual health and beauty fair is reaching out to women in Peninsular Malaysia over three consecutive weekends. And, for the first time, the event empowering women with tips and tools to look good and stay healthy is being staged in three towns – at Putrajaya, Johor Bahru and Penang. I was there for the Putrajaya roadshow.

Held at IOI City Mall, Putrajaya.

Speaking at launch of the fair at Putrajaya, Christina Low, Marketing Director of Guardian Malaysia said: “We are proud to note that since 2008, thousands of women have walked into this very fair to be transformed by our team of experts. But what we do here at the fair, is more than skin deep. I have no doubt that every woman who joins this fair walks out an exuberant and more confident self. What can be more appealing than a confident woman?” “With that in mind, and to mark International Women’s Day celebrated earlier this month, we have chosen Confidence Creation, as the theme for our makeover fair. Confidence is one of the most important qualities a woman can have. Research has shown that confidence makes you approach everything differently. The ability to see one’s self-worth undoubtedly gives the boost to handle the various challenges that life throws at us. So to all the women out there – acknowledge that you are beautiful, love yourself and make healthy choices today!” she added.

The Guardian Makeover, now in its 9th year, is part of Guardian’s continuous efforts to empower women to take charge of their health and well-being. The first leg of the fair was held at Johor Bahru last weekend, where thousands participated. The fair will move to Queensbay Mall in Penang from 2-3 April 2016, where Guardian’s team of health and beauty experts are expected to assist at least another 3,000 women in confidence creation. Christina said that the overwhelming response is a sign that women are increasingly seeing the value in looking great while staying healthy and Guardian Malaysia is honoured to be a part of that.

Open to anyone with a ticket that comes with the purchase of RM50 of any participating brand, Guardian’s Confidence Creation offers a complete makeover.

Starting from hair styling, you can choose from a variety of styles in the pictures given below:
