Farewell 2013!

This year has been a roller coaster year! I've had my fair share of ups and downs but I think it's one of the most memorable year as I learnt and experienced much.

I only made a few resolutions this year and I'm so glad I achieved all of it =))

I did many things I never thought I could do and I am also thankful for all these experiences. Embarking into adulthood is no kidding but sometimes you've just got to suck it up and be strong. That's my 2014 resolution! To be strong and independent.

Hopefully 2014 will be a better year =) That's in a few hours time.

Are you excited for 2014? hehe
Happy New Year 2014 dear readers! Here's to a better year ahead!

Christmas 2013

Wow, the year's coming to an end and Christmas is tomorrow :o
Time really flies! This Christmas is definitely different from the rest of the years. Ever since I started being really busy, there was no time for any preparation. I didn't have much time for Christmas shopping, so everything was done last minute and the Christmas spirit haven't even sink into me yet >.<

Perhaps tomorrow when I go for church and the family gets together, the true spirit of Christmas will come alive. The opening of presents still makes me giddy =p Looking forward to that and to all the food that I'm gona wallop!! Anyhow, wishing all you readers a Blessed Christmas and to those not celebrating, Happy Holidays!!

Nail it with Bloop

This is the continuation from the previous post. In the Hishop package, there is also a nail strip by Bloop!

Simple instructions given at the back.

Just put it on and file the edges of your nail and..

Wa-la! Colourful finger nails.

Right hand.

Left hand.

Bloop nail stickers are abit too colourful and are not consistent in their patterns. In one package you'll have many patterns for two hands. Some may like it, some may like consistency in patterns in all ten fingers. But different people has different taste I guess and it really depends on what kind of patterns you like.

If you're the kind that loves experimenting, get on with Bloop nail strips and have fun with all the colourful patterns =)

This is a collaboration with Hishop so you can get your Bloop nail strips in Hishop for RM38 for three packs of nail strips.

HiShop x Bloop

I know I haven't been updating frequently as of late >.< I've been super duper busy ever since I started working. Christmas is around the corner and I haven't had the time to pamper myself. But, look what arrived for me when I came back home one day...

Bear Bear presented my HiShop gift box hehe

Can't wait to see what's inside.

Yay! Now I can pamper my nails for Christmas with Bloop nail stickers and nail polish!

I have never done toe stickers before so I'm giving it a try.
I have been used to finger nails stickers but toes are a bit tricky because they are short and small.

Just follow the steps shown behind.

The colourful designs and a nail file.

Ta-dah!! I fumbled a bit because my toe nails are short and therefore there was a lot of cutting and measuring to do before I can stick it on and file it.

But not bad lah for a first timer hehe.
As you can see, there are different designs on the toes because they don't have a standard type.
So, if you're not into colourful, you may want to choose a different design.

Next up, is the nail polish from Bloop as well.

Carefully wrapped with bubble wrap so that it will not be damaged during delivery.

It's gona be pink nails for Christmas =)

-Quick Dry
-Ultra Glossy
-Long Lasting

Colour number H124 from the Pink Me Up series.

Not watery and can easily glide on nails.

The end result. Very impressed with this polish.
Glossy pink nails.

It only took 10 seconds to dry up and after that I could continue doing my work.
I don't even have to put a top coat because it's already glossy looking.
Loving my nails <3

Natta Cosme Charity Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund

As you guys know, Typhoon Haiyan was the strongest typhoon ever recorded in history with a maximum wind speed at 315km/h that blasted Philippines, washing away thousands of valuable lives, half-a-million of the Filipinos’ homes and affecting more than ten million of Filipinos.

In Natta Cosme, they strongly believe that absolute beauty does not stem solely from the external perfect skin, the internal beauty expressed through various kind acts is equally crucial to show your unique gorgeousness as well. Natta Cosme has been committing to the meaningful line; life gives to the giver and takes from the taker. The less valuable things you are having may mean the world to others; by contributing to others tiny things you have, you will be rewarded in some other ways.

Natta Cosme came up with a Charity Typhoon Haiyan Relief Fund.
They are two ways where you can contribute:

By purchasing any of these selected products where 100% of the payment will go to the charity fund.
If you choose this option, you will get Natta Cosme Chinese New Year angpau packets for free.


By simply donating RM10 without any purchase of products.
If this is your preferred option, for every donation, you will get a free gift.

All of the donations collected from you will be transferred to FoGuang Shan Malaysia on February 2014 after it is calculated and compiled and FoGuang Shan will transfer the fund to the Philippines. To prove the sincerity and honesty of Natta Cosme in organizing this event, they will publish the receipt of donation from FoGuang Shan Malaysia on their Facebook page.

It's as easy as that and all for the sake of charity.
Very kind of Natta Cosme to come up with this charity fund and thanks to the Butterfly Project for spreading the news!
Do good and chip in to the fund =)

Long Sleeve gown fever

I wrote about the long sleeve trend on the red carpet sometime last year.

Somehow, the long sleeve fever is still in and haven't died down. Celebrities are still donning this style.

Nicole Richie in Naeem Khan.

Naomi Watts in Zac Posen.

Eva Longoria in Emilio Pucci.

Emmy Rossum in Zuhair Murad.

Inspired by them, I wanted to have a try at a long sleeve gown as well.
For a dinner and dance night, I decided to don my very own black sleeved dress.

#outfitofthenight aka #ootn
Since it was plain, the slit was the highlight of the dress that added a little 'X' factor to it.
You know what? Covered as it may, I really like the fitting of the dress and a sleeved dress can be sexy as well =)

Hopefully, this trend will continue to live!!

Paul Walker died??

Oh no!! Another tragic celebrity's death ='(

This time it's the handsome Fast and Furious star, Paul Walker. So sad to hear that he died in a car crash today.

RIP Paul Walker!

This goes to show how short life can be sometimes >.<
A constant reminder to all of us.

KLCC Real Estate Market Trends

I’m sure many youngsters are very interested in investing in properties nowadays as it is a great investment for the future! Propwall is Malaysia's most advanced property search website with over 4,000 property analysis articles and 1,000,000 high quality property photos.

If you're looking to buy or rent a property, you can browse their largest Classifieds section with over 600,000 listings to find the latest property for sale and property for rent in your area.

KL Properties are not cheap these days especially if you're living in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. But it's still the most coveted because living in KL means you have access to everywhere and it's so convenient.

Housing in KL City Centre caters exclusively to the upper market because high rises within the area all boast of direct and unimpeded views of the KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers, a view that many pay dearly for. Step out of the illusion of peace and tranquility of their homes and residents will be in the hustle and bustle of the city where all the major businesses and embassies are located.

Propwall even has statistics for average house/condominium prices whether it's for sale or for rent. From there you can browse through properties for sale or rent at KL hot spots! You can browse properties from Pavillion Residences, Dua Residency, The Troika, Idaman Residence and many more!

Gorgeous pictures of the property will follow with updated information such as the asking price, layout, details and facilities provided for the property. If you are interested in any of the properties, you can immediately call the person in charge with information obtained on the website. It's very user friendly and convenient for all.

It is definitely good investment to get any one of the properties listed. However, to get the best price is sometimes a headache. Therefore, with a website like this, it is so much easier to browse through each properties with their prices and characteristics to match your preference!

Cure Natural Aqua Gel(with samples giveaway!)

I wrote about the launch of Cure Natural Aqua Gel awhile back. It is the No.1 Skincare in Japan and today I'll be reviewing this product and there's even a giveaway at the end of the post ^^

Cure is an exfoliator gel which exfoliates dead skin cells but is safe and gentle on the skin because it contains 90% hydrogen water! You can use Cure on a weekly basis without damaging your skin =)

250ml bottle of Cure Natural Aqua Gel.

Read the instructions carefully.
Wash face thoroughly and dry face well. It is important to use Cure on dry skin because it will not work on wet skin surface.

Then pump a small amount of Cure gel.
You can apply to face, neck, body or areas that are dry and rough.

In a circular motion, massage gel into skin(not too hard)

There will be white residue which is actually dead skin cells being removed.
Once the gel has dried up and has all turned into residue, rinse with water and continue with your regular skin care routine.
It's as easy as that!

You will notice brighter, clearer and softer skin after using Cure!

Here's a small giveaway to you readers!!

Cres Wellness

I was in desperate need of some pampering time. Haven't had any time to pamper myself this month so I was lucky to be invited by Cres Wellness to try out their facial treatment. Their timing could not be any better =)

I went to their outlet at Gardens Mall, Mid Valley. It's quite a huge outlet at the 4th floor!

It is normally quite packed during weekends, so book your facials early.

They mainly use Cellnique products.

This is the hallway to the facial rooms.

There's lockers for your belongings.

And a dressing table for after treatment.

This was my cozy treatment room.

Changed into a tube gown and ready for facial!

My facial was a detox facial and my therapist, Jennifer attended to me the entire time.
So let me list down the entire process of my treatment:
-Double cleanse
-Spray mist
-Exfoliation mask(it has this really nice strawberry scent which was wonderful!)
-Head massage

And then followed by mask with steamer.
This steamer is different because it's not the usual warm steam, but cool steam!
It sprayed out cool mist and relaxes the skin!

-Then the painful extraction was next (cringe!) Poor therapist, she did my face really meticulously meaning she really covered extracting my entire face! Not one blackhead was left haha
And pardon me, due to work lately and long hours of makeup, my face was not at its best and was congested so really after extraction, I was satisfied that all dirt were removed!

 -Next was scrub which was quite harsh on my skin since it was very sensitive after extraction and all its redness. So, I would definitely suggest a minor cleanse instead after extraction.

-Soothing cream was applied
-Radio frequency for anti bacteria
-Ampoule was applied
-Hydrating and calming mask
-Ultrasound for better penetration
-Head and Shoulder massage

Lastly, this calming and soothing cooling mask was applied to ease the redness of my skin and to rejuvenate it.
It lasted for 15 minutes and meanwhile, I drifted off to dreamland haha
Finally, after washing it off, skincare was applied and it was over!

The whole treatment took 2 hours and costs RM220.
Not bad right considering the amount of pampering time and the masks, ampoule, radio frequency and ultrasound!

I was served hot tea with a warm towel before I left.

I really liked that Cres Wellness appreciated me as a blogger and was not pushy into getting me to buy a treatment package or whatsoever unlike other centres. They were friendly and treated me well but don't take my word for it! The number of customers going in and out of their centre really proved it!

So before treatment, my face was congested and oily(shiny face) and after that, it was less oily, less bumpy and pores were less visible =)

Yay!! Thank you Cres Wellness for repairing my face and got me some pampering time from all the work stress. It was truly a friendly environment and they offer a variety of packages. You would definitely want to check them out!!
