Friday, October 31, 2014 Shopping Experience and Haul

So I decided to jump on the iHerb bandwagon a few days ago to see what the fuss was all about.

iHerb is a US based  online store that ships to many many countries (for a fee, of course). I think it was originally started up to sell nutritional products and supplements, but they have since branched out to selling other types of stuff, like pet items, bath and beauty, kids and babies, groceries even!

I have heard that most of the people that I know that frequents iHerb is for their range of Real Techniques brushes, and E.L.F. Cosmetics, together with the affordable price. So since I have been wanting to get my hands on some E.L.F stuff, I decided to check it out.

Review: Sleek Blush in Rose Gold

I have always loved Sleek products, ever since I got introduced to it two years ago. I love that Luxola has them, and they are really affordable and their quality is on par with other more expensive brands out there.

So since my Maybelline blush was finishing, I decided to go with a little Sleek and see what they had in store for me. Of course it didn't hurt that they were having a sale so I got it for 35% off :D

The Sleek Blush comes in a small matte compact with a mirror.  However, it doesn't come with an applicator brush. The size of the blush is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, while also large enough to contain all that product, which for me is a really good buy. One thing I really loved about Sleek is their *ahem* sleek packaging. It always comes with a matte surface which I love :)

ONE Fighting Championship™ (ONE FC), proved once again to be the undisputed king of mixed martial arts in Asia by showcasing nine exciting bouts of world-class mixed martial arts action in front of a capacity crowd at the iconic Stadium Putra in Kuala Lumpur for ONE FC: ROAR OF TIGERS. In the main event, Marat Gafurov showed fans that he is a force to be reckoned with at featherweight, defeating Rob Lisita by impressive submission in just one round.

Gafurov landed a kick to the head, staggering Lisita as he tumbled to the ground.

Event & Review: TGV Indulge in conjunction with Butterfly Girl's Night Out

Whenever someone achieves a milestone, there is always a sense of pride and accomplishment. I remember when I celebrated my first anniversary with le bb, it was something that I felt very proud of, as we had undergone many ups and downs in just one year together. Also, when I passed my first year mark of working in my current company, feeling very accomplished that I had stuck it out through thick and thin.

But nothing beats the happiness when your favourite butterfly community has also reached the one year mark this year. To know that you're a part of what made the community flourished, to know that the community that has supported you through your blogging years is finally one year old, that is something that cannot be put into words.

Review: 101 Hair Care Introduces New Advanced Follicle Technology (AFT) Treatment

*Warning* Picture filled post ahead!!!!!!

Have any of you guys ever felt that you don’t really need to go for hair treatments just because thinning hair or damaged hair only occurs in middle-aged, elderly people? Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re mistaken. Just because you’re young doesn’t mean that your hair isn’t damaged, and more often than not, it’s because of your lifestyle.

I used to be one of those who thought I have superbly healthy hair. Sure, I have had heavier than most hair fall and dandruff issues compared to other people, but I assumed it was mostly because I had long hair. So when 101 Hair Care approached me to ask if I would like to review their latest service, the AFT Treatment, I was a little sceptical on whether or not this product actually works, considering my hair wasn’t that much damaged to begin with, I just had a typical dandruff problem.


Event: GAB Oktoberfest Celebration and a New "Mugnificent" Record

Hints that something big awaits the public were dropped weeks before the launch of Guinness Anchor Berhad’s Oktoberfest celebrations. Does size really matter? Is big better? The curiosity of many was laid to rest when the country’s leading brewery unveiled Malaysia’s Biggest Mug at their launch of the annual beer festival. Standing at 2.6m high and 1.72m wide, the giant replica of the company’s renowned Oktoberfest 2014 promotional mug, created a new record that was endorsed by The Malaysia Book of Records at the event.

“Having organised the festival successfully for six years, this is an undeniably proud moment for us here at GAB. We are thrilled to bring you a bigger and better Oktoberfest celebration this 2014. Look out for Malaysia’s Biggest Mug as it travels across the country next month,” Hans Esaadi, MD of GAB said at the launch held at the brewery’s tavern.
