Video Music Awards 2011

As usual, the red carpet arrivals pics for the recently ended VMAs....

Beyonce stole the show with her pregnancy news. She will be having her first child with husband, Jay-Z. Her orange flowy dress is very beautiful especially on her skin tone! She won Best Choreography for her video, Run the World(Girls)

Katy Perry, the biggest winner of the night with three awards, including Video of the Year! Her fashion style is very quirky and this is one of it with a Cheongsam together with an umbrella to complete the look! Love her pink heels though...Pink hair, not so much XD

Britney Spears looking great finally! She won Best Pop Video. Here she is in a simple LBD.

Miley Cyrus with a full long gown with prints. I kind of like this look. It's definitely better than her 'showing off too much skin' dresses.

Kim Kardashian, post wedding and honeymoon. She's in a simple silver gown with her signature low cut.

Selena Gomez looked beautiful in this unique dress.It's not too over the top and not too simple. It's just nice for a young girl like her. Simply gorgeous!

Vanessa Hudgens in a simple silver gown as well. She looked more matured with this new hairstyle.

                                     Taylor Lautner as usual looking dashing in a simple outfit.

It's been awhile, Katie Holmes!! She looked very young here in a simple short dress with booties.

I'm not much of a fan of Jojo's dress mainly because there are two bulging sides to her dress which is very unflattering. Her shoes, though is fabulous!

Worst dressed of the night has two contenders......

Nicki Minaj in a ...........(fill in the blank) with some toys hanging around her..

Lady Gaga who came as a man, which is ironic considering her name has a 'Lady' in it -.- She won two awards, including Best Video with a message for Born This Way.

So, who is worst? You decide *laughs*

Can't wait to see the awards on TV!!

Zookeeper movie

Zookeeper is ridiculously funny!! With talking animals and Kevin James as the lead actor, everything is funny from the start till the end!

It's a feel good movie so don't expect much from this movie other than just sit back and laugh =)

My favourite animal is the gorilla!! *laughs* There are quite a number of famous character voicing the animals such as Adam Sandler as the monkey, Sylvester Stallone as the lion, Cher as the lioness and adding to the sweetness is Rosario Dawson as the lead actress.

Ratings: 3 stars

Independence Day

Today, 31st August, Malaysia celebrates it's 54th Independence day!! It's not that hyped up because the Hari Raya kind of overshadowed it this year since it falls on the same day.

Nevertheless, it's still remembered among Malaysians as our country is free from foreign hands.

I just have to say, the traffic these days is just blissful!! How I wish for these kind of traffic everyday!! It's the best time to go to KL and shop your heart out with ample parking spaces!

Happy Merdeka Raya people!

Other than that, enjoy this festive season with much love and happiness!!

I can hear fireworks already in my neighbourhood =)

Biore Skin Purifying Technology

Biore just launched their newest skincare range with their new Skin Purifying Technology which thoroughly cleanses dirt without removing your skin's essential moisture. Therefore, the skin's pH level is maintained.

I was invited for the launch however, too bad, I was working on that day so I couldn't attend.

There are four different types of facial foam to suit different skin type in this new range:

The four variants are Pore&Oil Clear, Pure Mild, Acne Clear and Glowing Bright.

I am now trying the Pore&Oil Clear. It's suppose to unclog pores and remove oil.

As you can see, it has crushable pink beads which removes impurities and excess oil. You don't need to squeeze much as well because it's very foamy and washes your face thoroughly.

It's suitable for my skin as I have sensitive skin but I found out, it's a bit drying on my skin. But with a help of a moisturiser, my skin is left oil free!!

The price is very reasonable as well and can be found in all leading pharmacies and supermarket.

YAY!! I love love Fridays!! But especially tomorrow hehe I oficially stop work on Friday and now I can go back to my holiday-ing mood =) also, i can blog more often hehe

Enjoy Katy Perry's Last Friday Night(TGIF) which totally reflects my mood =p

Monte Carlo movie

I was pre-warned to buy the DVD instead of watching it in the cinema for this movie. I must say, luckily I did not waste my time and money going to the cinema.

I'm sorry but when I saw the trailer, I thought it was going to be a fun chick flick with Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy and Cory Monteith acting. Boy, was I wrong! I don't know, how come 4 famous stars in one movie could totally ruin it all XD

It was very Blah~ Nothing so funny, nothing so awesome, nothing at all really. It was quite dragging actually and worst, it didn't end well like how it was supposed to. At least, if a movie ends well, you'll be a little more happy XD

So, I must say, just watching the trailer only will make do- seriously! The whole trailer is more fun than the movie itself. But, if you're stubborn, like me and a fan of those girls, then just watch the DVD.

Don't say I didn't warn you! =p

Maybelline Color Bloom lip balm

Maybelline has this colour changing lip balm which is quite unique.

It comes in two colous: Pink Blossom and Peach Blossom. I am using the Pink Blossom =)
Maybelline New York's newest lip balm is a breakthrough formula which transforms white balm colour to a pinkish tone which suits your lip colour.

It is packed with tone revealing pigments which reacts with our body chemistry to give our lips a healthy flush of colours!

It comes in a nice sweet pink packaging...

The balm is pure white in colour

I'm going to show three swatches of the balm:

The highest swatch is only one application. The middle, two application and the third three application. At first, you can only see sheer colour. But wait for at least 30 seconds to a minute to see the magical transformation =))

And then:

It'll transform to a darker pink. 


After three application, you can see a significant pink colour on my lips. But actually it's a try and error kind of thing. Because you cannot really see what shade it'll transform into, so it's best to apply one application first and wait and if it's too light, add more.

I was fooled the first time I tried it. When I applied, I saw there was not much colour so I glided on a few more times. After a minute, I saw that it ended up turning into super red lips. I didn't like it. After trying an error, I found two application is more than enough for me.

-It has SPF 16 so lips are guarenteed protected =)
-It has jojoba oil and many other properties which makes lips smooth and soft the whole day.
-It's fun to play with! =p
-The best thing I found out is that it's super long lasting!!! I applied it from morning 8.15am and it lasted till 9pm!!!! This is even after eating two meals! No kidding! This is the most long lasting lip product I have ever found and trust me I have been using lip glosses, lipsticks and lip balms for very long and most can't even last till lunch time XD

-Due to its long lasting feature, it is quite hard to remove. I found out, even after applying make-up remover there is still some residue. I fear it may have some permanent residue after using this lipbalm XD
-After application, you have to wait awhile to see the results. It's not immediate.

Overall, I think this product is not bad. I'm still wondering how that white lip balm can change into a super pink colour *laughs* It's magic hehe

ESTEE LAUDER Idealist illuminator

Estee Lauder has just launched their newest Ideliast Even Skintone Illuminator. It claims to reduce uneven skintone and skin will look clearer, brighter and vibrant.

I must say after application it really does make your skin more clear, radiant and vibrant. I was surprised by its fast results.

I was told by the salesgirl to use this product with the Estee Lauder's Hydrationist...

I applied it after applying the Illuminator.

It is white in colour and it's very effective. It immediately made my skin supple and smooth. It is also fast absorbing and non-sticky leaving my skin moisturised the whole day.

The Idealist Illuminator is slightly brownish in colour...

Okay, I'm going to lay down the pros and cons of this product:

-It does give the effect of a luminous skin

                     BEFORE                                                                          AFTER

As you can see, my skin is pearly and shiny in the 'after' picture.

-It's lightweight and oil-free so it suits my combination skin
-It reduces redness
-It's smooth and glides well on skin
-It lasted very long. I used it in the morning before I go to work and after coming back from work, my skin is still radiant with a shimmery effect!
-The bottle has a pump so it's hygienic =)

-Since it has a shiny effect, it may be quite bad for bad oily skin because it'll make your face greasy looking. But I think after a few blottings, it will do just fine.
-It's very lightweight hence light coverage so it's not a replacement of a BB cream.
-Of course don't expect immediate effect for your skin to be even after a few days or rather scars to to be gone immediately. It may take quite awhile.

Ideally, it's quite a good product. It instantly makes your face more radiant. Especially if you didn't have enough sleep, it'll have the effect as if you slept for a good 8 hours!!
Besides that, it's an ideal product for any skintype!

World Badminton Championship 2011

Lee Chong Wei strived all the way to the finals in the World Championship held in Wembley.
But so near....yet so far =((

He played Lin Dan in the finals. He was doing so well in the first set, but made huge crucial mistakes in the second set which then made them play the rubber set. However, Malaysian dreams of getting a gold medal crushed when he hit into the net in the final determining point.

It was so close...Lin Dan won 23-21, 14-21 and 21-23

Nevertheless, I think Chong Wei played really well this time. He has definitely improved a lot from the last time I saw him play against Lin Dan. He could take most of Lin Dan's smashes and I think his own mistakes from poor line calls made him loose XD

Anyway, better luck next time! I still think he's a great badminton player =))

Nanowhite just launched their newest range with their breakthrough nano-skin happy technology with Happy Dermalogy which penetrates deeper into your skin.

I have tried two products which are the Day Renew Cream and Night Repair Cream.

The day renew cream consist of SPF 25 which moisturises, whitens and renews skin. It's cream based but it's not greasy at all! It's fast absorbing and you can see your skin becomes fairer and more radiant after application because the cream is white in colour.

The night repair cream is more concentrated but again not greasy. Using it together with the day cream consistently really makes your skin fairer after that. Even some people commented after using Nanowhite that I have become fairer.

I have naturally darker skin than most Chinese but after Nanowhite, I have fairer, whiter and more radiant skin =) It does produce good result. It also whitens old scars and dark spots. But you must use it consistently otherwise the result wouldn't be obvious =)

Ooh la la~ Anne Hathaway is gorgeous in this Alexander McQueen dress!
She's at the premiere of her newest flick- One Day(you can see from the backdrop)

It's a lovely dress which accentuates her figure and she looked all round gorgeous!

Garnier LightExtra body lotion

I've always been a fan of Garnier products. I've written many posts about Garnier aqua products...This time I'm trying their LightExtra whitening milk lotion.

This lotion is fast absorbing and non sticky. That's the best thing I like about this product. You know, sometimes when you apply lotion on your body and then need to wash your hand, and you feel a sticky feeling after that??

This does not happen with Garnier LightExtra. It's texture is milky and creamy but non sticky. Besides that, it has a lovely scent which lingers on your body the whole day while moisturising and lightening dark spots =)

I'm more in love with Garnier <3

Take me home tonight

Take me home tonight is a comedy about three friends attending an out of control party and lead actor, Topher Grace is trying hard to get a date with his high school crush. It's quite a simple storyline, really but it was good fun watching it.

Some parts are seriously hilarious!! I thought it's another horrible slapstick movie but it proved me wrong!

If you just want to have a good laugh, this movie is good enough for you =))

Pictures galore ahead for the recently finished Teen Choice Awards!!

Blake Lively from Gossip Girl, who won Choice Drama Actress look subtle yet stunning in this bright orange dress! I love how the colour pops!

Nina Dobrev is such a cutie in this barbie doll dress. It's definitely something I would wear =)) She also won Choice Actress in Fantasy/Sci-Fi series.

Lucy Hale, from Pretty Little Liars has a lot of sparkles on. The whole dress is sparkly and it fits the fun environment of the awards show.

I don't normally like how Avril Lavigne dresses, but this time she nailed it with this LBD with some sheer. It's simple yet a little sexy!

Robert Pattinson looks cleaned up here, rather than his disheveled  normal self. He won Choice Drama Actor for his stint in Water for Elephants.

This is my favourite pic! It has all three of my favourite actors from The Vampire Diaries!! Paul Wesley, Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder all looked casually sleek!

Cory Monteith from Glee in a leather jacket and tight pants. Hmmm...dude, it's the 21st century!

Taylor Swift as usual in a pretty dress looking beautiful. She won FOUR awards! One of it was Choice Red Carpet Icon. I couldn't agree more!

Another Taylor! Taylor Lautner look his usual handsome self and well put together outfit. He won Choice Sci-Fi/Fantasy actor.

Selena Gomez is gorgeous in this tube gold dress. She also won FOUR awards that night, including Choice Single for her song 'Who Says'.

Fergie looking all starry. Makes me go dizzy as well XD Come on, she can dress better.

Cameron Diaz, although long time no more in her teens yet still look beautiful in a simple nude tube dress.

So many young teens dominating the scene nowadays. When I was a teen, I was just studying in school and having a ball of playful time *laughs* These people make serious money with their talents and beauty XD

Congrats to all winners of the awards night!
