Enchanteur Forever Love

I am sure all of you have heard of the brand Enchanteur. After all, Enchanteur is the No.1 brand in the mass market fragrances category in Malaysia.

They have previously launched their line of fragrance called Enchanteur Love featuring two enchanting scents - Enchanteur Celebrate Love and Enchanteur Forever Love. This range is specially dedicated to women who are in a committed relationship. It celebrates every romantic moment with your other half.

At the previous Guardian's My Date with Beauty, I received the Forever Love fragrance in my goodie bag. I loved it so much that I decided to share with you readers hehe


Enchanteur-Forever Love unfolds the promise of everlasting love.


Elegant glass perfume.


The fragrance bottle cap is specially designed to look like an emerald cut jewel. Because of course we women love diamonds!


The scent is described as:

"A lovely citrusy and musky blend, Forever Love opens up with a lively mix of Bergamot, Lemon and Mandarin combined with the sweetness of Cassis, Pineapple and Apple that symbolizes the beginning of a wonderful journey of love. It then blossoms beautifully into a floral bouquet of Roses, Jasmine, Geranium and Fressia just like true love that grows deeper. Warm Musk and Amber complete the fragrance to signify the promise of an everlasting love."

If the description is too difficult to understand(lol!), it basically is a sweet scent perfect for all ladies out there signifying the romance of love. I really love that it is not overpowering, not too strong scented but just the perfect blend. Fantastic for a date night with your man! After all, every girl would want to smell wonderful for their man, right? Further, I am absolutely impressed with the love story behind the Enchanteur Love fragrances which surrounds the celebration of L-O-V-E.

Besides, it is super reasonable as well and can be easily bought in any leading pharmacies or supermarkets.

Enchanteur Forever Love EDT 50ml only costs RM31.90. I am in love! Are you?

Heaven on Earth Lavender Floral Water

A stressed day out with the hot weather, water rationing and pollution can be exhausting. And exhaustion makes our skin oily, tired and dull. Fortunately, there’s a quick remedy to uplift, restore and refresh your skin!

It is a multipurpose mist formulated with light concentration of lavender essential oil, a combination that promises to give a refreshing and uplifting sensation to your skin, body and mind. It is soothing, relaxing and balances skin at the same time mentally refreshing!


A product from Australia.


The consistency is almost as clear as pure water. It is Alcohol-free scented with light concentration of essential oil with just a tiny pinch of lingering lavender scent.

Lavender is well known for its soothing properties that work to calm and relax your senses. Packed in a convenient spray bottle, this floral water is suitable for many uses.

Within seconds, my skin felt refreshed and the lavender scent made me relaxed. 
The scent may seem overpowering at first sniff. However, after spraying on the face, you will realise that the scent will go off in a while leaving just a tiny lingering lavender scent.


Perfect for a long day at work when all you need is something to refresh yourself. In between working hours, just spray it on your face and you could go back and do your job with much more energy after getting rid of the dullness and tiredness.

Things everyone should do at least once in their lifetime

I was reading through this article and couldn't agree more with it: http://www.buzzfeed.com/ariannarebolini/things-everyone-should-do-alone-at-least-once

Yes, it’s true, sometimes you just need some alone time. Being alone doesn’t mean you’re lonely. It just means you’re independent enough to be doing things by yourself. I already did half from the list. I love my ‘ME’ time. I actually do quite enjoy doing some things by myself. But then again…I can be quite the extreme side of two coins. I can be really attached to people at times and I can be extremely independent other times *laughs*

Anyway, I would really want to try to do number 3 someday =) Although technically I travelled by myself before, but not out of voluntariness. It was due to work. I want a real holiday just by myself, probably cruising away on a ship...away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Just me, the destination and serenity. No one can tell me where to go, what to do or even what to eat. Hmmm…if only my parents would approve LOL

So readers, try doing stuffs yourself. Who knows, you might actually enjoy doing it =)

Spotted!

Emma Stone at the 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ Premiere in Paris was spotted wearing something quite unusual...

A full on black leather dress by Lanvin.
Gahh...gorgeous gorgeous. 
Somehow leather really defines sexy for me ^^


Seen here with Spiderman himself, Andrew Garfield.
Good looking casts of Spiderman!

But as time passed, women began demonstrating their capabilities in undertaking more responsibilities, raising a family as well as being part of the workforce and contributing to social welfare. As evolution enhanced the confidence level of every woman allowing them to showcase their inner strength, they still recognized the importance of physical beauty and strived to maintain their outer beauty through various means.

Guardian's My Date with Beauty

I was at last year's Great Guardian Makeover and had so much fun that I came back this year!
This time it is themed 'My Date with Beauty'.

Guardian understands the value of looking good and feeling great and has successfully organised the yearly Guardian Makeover since 2008. Each year, the number of participants grew and while learning the make-up and skincare tips, participants found it fun and engaging.

To be entitled for this makeover, customers who purchase RM20 and above including one participating brand in a single receipt are entitled to one Makeover Ticket at RM10 to join this Makeover event.
The customer would get to have a makeover, a photo session and a goody bag.


The event was held at One Utama, Concourse, Ground Floor (Old Wing)


I absolutely love this quote:
'Beauty is being the best possible version of you on the inside out'


The centre stage.


The itinerary for two days of the event- 5th and 6th of April.
So you can still join the fun tomorrow!


In total there are 18 participating brands.
These brands each had a booth at the Concourse place as well. 
You can actually get quite good deals with their promotions. Discounts, best buys, buy 1 free 1, you name it, they have it there. It's quite a beauty haven at the event!


Hada Labo


Oslee


Avene


L'OREAL Paris

and many more including Maybelline New York, Alcon, Bio Essence, BioGrow Oat BG22, Biore, Blackmores, Brands, Dermatix, Enchanteur, Nano White, Neutrogena, Nivea, Palmer's and Safi.


This event was hosted by JD and Dilly from MixFM.


The opener was a dance performance and they were dancing to Pharell's 'Happy' song!


The dancers were so energetic and happy!


And it ended with a pop of confetti.


Photo taking session with the dancers, makeup and hair artists and the VVIPs.


Hair and makeup for the makeover were by A Cut Above Academy.
A total of 20 hair stylists and make-up artists were there to attend to all participants for the day.


Each person entitled for the makeover can choose between nude make-up or glam make-up.

I chose Katie Holmes' glam make-up =))


The make-up station.


Getting ready for my makeover.




After make-up, each participant is now to choose a hairstyle.
There are three styles for long and short hair each. 
I wanted something different so I chose Diane Kruger's braided hairstyle!


Getting my hair braided. I have never braided my hair O.o


My hairstylist at work hehe
Braid at one side and curl on the other.


Ta-dah!! I absolutely love my hairstyle ^^
My make-up although I opted for the glam look, it was not glam enough so to say but I still like that it was not over the top.


Other media/participants getting their makeover done!


Hi Tammy!


The media were then invited to Dave's Deli for brunch and it was yummy!!
It's been a long time since I've been there.


Went back to the Concourse and there was a demonstration on Air Brush Make-up by A Cut Above.


Caught up with the other media/bloggers.


Thank you Guardian for the Makeover and for making all the girls at the event feel beautiful =)


Have I mentioned I really like my hair? LOL
I felt extra cool with the braid going on like I'm going to burst out into a rap anytime soon =p


Check it out!
