My Beauty Resolutions for 2014

So, Christmas is over and we will welcome yet another new year in a matter of days!


I don't know about you, but I am super excited about it because this means that Chinese New Year is coming up, and I will be flying back to my hometown to spend quality time with my friends and family back where I come from :)

But let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. First, we have to welcome the new year, and what better way than to map down your resolutions for 2014?


Personally for me, I feel that I should have two types of resolutions this year.

Type 1: My full year resolutions, which can encompass anything under the sun, like, personal achievements, goals, career path, and perhaps getting married? :p ok so the getting married part might be too soon hehehe

Type 2: My beauty resolutions. Because let's face it, I'm not getting any younger, and we womenfolk have to be extra diligent in keeping our skin beautiful and healthy! And that is why this demands a list of its own.

So moving on, my beauty resolutions.

1. Definitely to go green, and to be eco-friendly, and the best way to do that is to only go for products that are organic, and chemical-free. It has to be from natural plant ingredients, and contains botanical extracts.

Let's face it. Would you put harmful chemicals on your skin? I don't think so. Personally for me, once I get a bad reaction on my skin after using a particular skincare product, I will immediately stop using it. Best to stop no matter how good the product claims to be, and protect your skin from these harmful ingredients.



2. To be less lazy with my daily and nightly skincare regime. More often than not, I have caught myself falling asleep without properly removing my make up, or I just remove it with my make up remover and fall asleep quickly after that (mostly cos I am reassured by their claim that they remove make up 100% and have moisturising properties so I don't need to wash my face after that).

I think having two resolutions is good enough for a year :p Goodness knows how hard it is to even keep to one >.<

I firmly believe that by keeping with these two resolutions, it is enough to bring out beauty from within, and to make me more ready for the year after that :D


What do you think? Any beauty resolutions you would like to share? Let me know in the comments section below! :)

Til the next time, stay beautiful!

Beau Box, the Brand new Beauty Box in town!

Hey lovelies, there is a brand new beauty box in town, and I bet most of you are no stranger to this particular box, which boasts four or more full sized items in their box!


Yes darlings, you guessed it right, it is the highly acclaimed BeauBox, the only beauty box brand in town that promises to ALWAYS give you four or more FULL SIZED items in the box! When the box was first launched a few weeks ago, I was already smitten. Which lady in their right mind would say no to such a beautiful pink box that is both sturdy and pretty at the same time? I knew I had to get it right then.

Etude House Mini Haul

Hey guys, let me just ask you a quick question. Have you guys ever wanted to get your hands on some cosmetic or skincare product that have been highly reviewed and raved about by everyone but just couldn't bring yourself to part with your money cos it's too expensive?

Come join in the boat as I am one of those people :p I have always heard praises sung about Etude House products, but whenever I looked at the price tag, I could never bring myself to spend that amount of money on those products.

What do you think is inside this little bag from Etude House?

MrLens: Competitive, Fast and Reliable

Have any of you ever felt that you are nearing the lifetime of your current contact lenses but can never seem to find the time to go get them at the nearest optician near you? I know I have always felt that way, and I can never seem to get my contacts fast enough before I had to replace them >.<

But thanks to Mr. Lens and The Butterfly Project, I could get my lenses on time this time around because Mr. Lens have made it so much easier to do so! All I had to do was head over to http://www.mrlens.com.my/en and browse through the wide range of contacts they have available!

Movie Review: Walking With Dinosaurs 3D (2013)

Hey guys, just got back from Nuffnang's Premiere Screening of Walking with Dinosaurs thanks to Ben (who can't make it due to work) and here I am posting up a review! :p


Synopsis: The story is set 70 million years ago in Alaska, high in the Arctic. Each year, the long dark winters – three months of perpetual darkness and violent snow storms – drive the dinosaurs southwards in their thousands on a great annual migration. Amongst the spectacle, we travel with Patchi, a strange but endearing Pachyrhinosaurus with a large frill and horns.

A Journey Through Time Closes with Elegance

The last month of November was a very eventful month for me as I was involved in a week-long showcase of luxury timepieces and jewellery at A Journey Through Time VII at Starhill Gallery. Endorsed by The Ministry of Tourism and Culture Malaysia, this year’s A Journey Through Time had once again awed watch & jewellery enthusiasts with exquisite timepieces and jewellery with its display of the latest and most unique collections from world-renowned brands.

Making a grand finale for the closing event was the highly anticipated Starhill Gallery Watch and Jewellery of the Year Awards, which saw some of the world’s leading luxurious brand nominated for the various different awards presented.

Kinohimitsu Luau Party: A taste of Hawaii

Ever wondered how Hawaii was like? Ever felt jealous because some people you know went to Hawaii and you couldn't go? Lucky for me, I got a chance to experience how Hawaii was like thanks to Kinohimitsu and The Butterfly Project! :D


The Hawaiian Luau party was held in the heart of KL City, in one of the most relaxing spas in town, the Vila Manja Spa. Even though it was smack right in the middle of the city centre, you could barely hear the sound of the traffic. It was serene and the only sounds to be heard that night was the squeals of delight from the other 49 Butterflies, and the calming flow of the fountain.

Santa Hermo Grant my Wish!

The entire month of December is the month of giving, and I have found out that Santa Hermo will be granting wishes to some selected lovely girls thanks to The Butterfly Project!!!

Everybody loves to make lists, and a wishlist is no exception. Therefore, with Santa Hermo granting wishes around the corner, I decided to head on over to Hermo.com.my to see what's available that I would want in my wishlist.


I started off with more than 10 items on my wishlist, but setting a budget of RM80 (and a little bit more), I have narrowed down my list to these two items. 

Want to know what I wished for?

Shop for Charity at Natta Cosme

Hey lovelies, how has December been treating you thus far? Hope it has been treating you well :)

As you know, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines was an exceptionally powerful typhoon which began in early November 2013, and as at todate, has killed 6,000 people and counting :(

As citizens of the world, I'm sure we all feel for these people, and though at times we might feel that we are not able to do anything (being so far away), I can assure you, where there's a will, there is a way. While we might not be able to go on ground and provide relief support for the victims, I believe that we can do what we can to help alleviate their burden.

I Dared to Wax with Bubblegum!

Now, before any of you think of waxing with bubblegum, I'm here to tell you that this is not the case. While we did go for a waxing session, it was not using bubblegum. Bubblegum is actually the name of the Waxing Parlour that we went to, and it's located (rather conveniently) in Plaza Damas :)


It was a really pinky girly affair as we made our way upstairs to Bubblegum House of Wax. Everything looked so cute, I almost didn't want to eat it. There was Ice Cream with all sorts of toppings and syrup, cookies, noodles, and bread sticks!

Philips Innovation That Matters to You

Hey guys, have you ever wondered what we can do to make our society a better one? We always see news about increasing crime rates, increased health problems, and more often than not, we stand idly by, criticising the powers that be for not doing their part in making the country a better place.

What we fail to realise is that, while we can complain and complain, we can do our part too! Thanks to Philips, we can submit our idea for a healthier home and safer city!

Rocking it out at H-Artistry 2013 at MIECC

Hey lovelies :)

How has your weekend been so far? Been to any happening parties? Well I did, and it was none other than the awesome Hennessy Artistry (the Global Art of Mixing) Finale last week at MIECC. It was so awesome that I could still feel it's effects until now! It's been a long time that I have not been to a party as happening as this, and it was all thanks to Manoah :)


 Same as last year, the Epic party of the year was held at MIECC, and as usual there was no parking provided (which I feel was a little silly as there was no way the mall itself could accommodate only so many cars T.T). We were quite lucky that there was a shopper who left and we could slip in when we entered parking.

Honda Hybrid Family Roadtrip 2013 to Ipoh

Hey guys, If you've been following my Instagram lately, you would have seen me posting pictures of me driving around with this red baby last weekend :)


I was given the opportunity to drive around with this super awesome Honda Hybrid CR-Z in Milano Red. I'm pretty sure when I was driving around, there were heads turning to admire my sleek sexy ride. And what made it even more awesome was that it's a lady at the wheel!

Review: Phantasee Be Lustrous Green Contact Lenses

 Hey guys :) if you read my previous contact lens review, I mentioned at the end that I wanted to review green coloured contacts. So when GlassesOnline contacted me and asked me to review a pair of their contact lenses, I decided to go for it, and selected a green pair!


The lens I got this time around is from the Phantasee range, called Be Lustrous. I took the Green variant, and as you can see from the site, it looks very vivid. Which was why when I decided to go with it, I was a little apprehensive whether or not it was the right choice. I didn't want to look like an alien walking around :p

Summer's come and gone ladies, but the awesome memories from all those pool parties remain! I had the pleasure of being one of Pink N Proper's invited guests for one of the more prestigious pool parties held this year, the awesome Hed Kandi Summer Heat Pool Party at Aloft KL Sentral :)


It was a party unlike any other, set in KL amidst a landscape of towering buildings, and beautiful lights. The party actually officially started at about 8pm, but I went there early to take advantage of the sunset. Doesn't the skyline look positively lovely?

 Happy weekend guys! As you know, a few weeks ago I went on a trip to the Lost World of Tambun thanks to the Butterfly Project :) It was the Butterfly Project's maiden trip outside of KL, and it was an awesome two day one night well spent with other beauty bloggers in our community :)

GAB Oktoberfest Malaysia 2013

Ladies and Gentlemen, It is officially the month of October, and we all know what that means :D No? Well, it’s that time of the month again for Oktoberfest!!!! And in Malaysia, we all know it’s a celebration of beer (preferably Paulaner) in a huge mug, with a lot of drinking, dancing, and girls in German costumes! :D


Did you know, the Oktoberfest celebration initially started as wedding celebration in 1810 to commemorate the union between Crown Prince Ludwig (who later became King Ludwig I) and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen at Theresienwiese (translated as Therese's meadow / field) – it is for this reason that Oktoberfest is referred to by Germans as ‘die Wiesn’ or ‘the field’. Personally for me, I have never heard of Oktoberfest throughout my years in Kuching, until I came to KL a few years ago.

Asia's Premiere Esthetic & Skincare Exposition and Beauty Expo 2013

Review: Pamper yourself with their Signature Aromatherapy Massage at Amante Nail Spa and Body Care

TGIF guys!!! The weekend is almost here!

Sometimes after a long week, you feel all drained out, and you just want to lie down in bed the entire weekend to recharge. Well, what if I told you there's a better way to recharge than just sleeping in bed for two whole days?

 

Thanks to The Butterfly Project and Amante Nail Spa and Body Care, I was given the opportunity to experience a 60-minute Aromatherapy Massage worth RM88. You might have heard of Amante before, and I blogged about it during the Bloggers' Massage Party organised by the Butterfly Project at Amante's Sri Petaling branch.
