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

Review: Modbox October Edition

Hey ho everyone! Hope all of you have managed to chase your Monday blues a little further away by the time you read this, cos it's already Tuesday! *lame* :) Anyways, today I will be reviewing a Beauty Box which is perhaps, one of the cheapest Beauty Boxes in town :) After I mention that, you will definitely know that the box that I'm talking about is non other than Modbox! Modbox is a Beauty Box that gives you the power to choose the beauty samples that you want in your beauty box.

In keeping with the mantra "Freedom of Choice", Modbbox believes that every lady should have a voice to choose what they want in life, especially when it comes to beauty. Therefore, they do the hard work of curating exciting new products for you to try, but ultimately, you get the final say on whether it should end up in your beauty box.

It's all about giving YOU the control, because you know yourself best!

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 :)

For me, it was half and half, but that's usually how it is, so can't complain :p If you recall three months ago, I wrote about IMEDEEN® tablets, and how I'm gonna try them out for three months to see if it's really all they mentioned they are, and more.

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.
