Lacy trend

Lace fashion is not fading off the red carpet anytime soon. I did a lace post back in 2011 and now coming onto 2013, more celebrities are donning lace dresses. It exudes sophistication and elegance.

Taylor Swift who has been spotted in quite many lace outfits, here in a red one.

At the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part Two, Kristen Stewart was spotted in a long lace dress with sheer panels.

Blake Lively in an episode of Gossip Girl wearing a gorgeous lace outfit!

Lea Michele in a casual one.

Eva Longoria shows that lace can be worn at any age!

Kate Middleton is beautiful in a black lace Temperley dress. 

She keeps it casual yet formal for her outdoor duties as a princess.

I'm still loving the lace trend and I've kinda caught the lace bug *laughs* Want to have lace dresses like the celebrities but at a bargain? Remember my post on Nile.com.my? Well, Nile offers a variety of beautiful lace dresses. These are some from Nile:

Senka Hoshitsu Lotion S(Fresh)

Senka, an all new Japanese skincare brand by Shiseido offers an array of textures range to suit women with different skincare needs. The Senka Hoshitsu lotion is quite the talk of the town due to its moisturising properties!

Researches at Senka discovered that most women are looking for a daily lotion which moisturises skin continuously and effectively. The Hoshitsu lotions, in Moist(for normal to dry skin) and Fresh(for normal to oily skin) are developed with the Micro-Moisture Manufacturing process that shrinks hydrating elements down to the micro level to provide creamy moisturising and hydration capabilities.

Pink cap is Moist(normal to dry skin) and white cap is Fresh(normal to oily skin)

Since I have oily skin, the lotion in Fresh is the most suitable for me.

This lotion infuses skin with abundant hydration to allow better absorption of other skincare properties into the stratum corneum of the skin. The texture is designed to not leave skin any sticky residue while retaining skin elasticity.

This lotion also contains extra hydrating ingredients namely the Double Hyaluronic Acid with integrated Royal Jelly GL to give skin a smooth and dewy quality.

There are three ways to use this lotion. After cleansing, you can pour the lotion on your palm and apply on face or pour the lotion on a piece of cotton, whichever suits you best. You can even use this as a mask! Just soak a mask with Senka Hoshitsu Lotion and apply on face.

My preferred way; pour on palm and dab on face. Only three drops are needed for the whole face. You can see how dense this lotion is as it's not watery and runny. 

After application, I realised it is full of moisture! Hence, it will take some time to dry. However, it is not sticky and leaves my face moisturised all day long! It's also very suitable for oily skin people as it locks in moisture without making skin feel sticky =))

This lotion is perfect to be used with Senka's Perfect Whip cleanser.

Retails at RM39.90 and available at selected Watson's outlets.

Nile.com.my- Malaysia's Online Shopping

I love online shopping and it's even more enjoyable if the prices are cheap and service is good! Recently, I've been obsessed with Nile.com.my! It offers stuffs at a good discount! I'm pure obsessed with their clothes. It's like shopping at Times Square or Sungai Wang for clothes only that you can do it at the comfort of your own home! You don't even have to break your budget to shop at Nile. Pricing for clothes are around RM20 *goes crazyyyy*

They sell many other items as well. They have both men and women clothings, bags, shoes, sports equipment, accessories and many more!

Are the prices really that low, you ask? Well, Nile offers a “Low Price Guarantee”. If you have made an order through Nile.com.my and then show them that you could purchase the same items at a lower price that is viewable and bookable on another website, they will either match that price or beat it! In addition, they will refund you the price differences. How convincing that you're really getting a good bargain for your goods!!

And if you're not happy with the item, they have this 7 days return policy. Nile will bear all return charges if there's a defect. It's good that they bear full responsibilities if it's their fault. They strive to be a customer centric company and customers are their priority.

I especially love their delivery service! Once you've ordered and paid for the items, they will keep you updated through e-mails and my parcel arrived within 2 days! They ship to West and East Malaysia using Kangaroo courier so be patient for your goods and they even ship internationally! It's even better if you're within their 'Cash on Delivery' area, as your parcel will arrive within 24 hours! That's so efficient! And if you're within the COD area, you can choose not to pay online but to pay when you receive the items! So convenient if you don't have any online banking.

Their website is also designed to navigate easily and browse for items according to categories. It's very convenient for easy shopping. It's simple and uncomplicated and they have instructions for everything about how to place your orders, make payment, etc. They however do not have a direct payment website for online banking. You'll have to bank in the money yourself and e-mail them.

My huge parcel <3
