Current beauty obsessions

Hello everyone, I am doing a review about my current beauty obsessions and hope you will be inspired to try any of these beauty products. I took these pictures around 3pm while Mika and Sheena was napping. Mika did woke up several times, hence the colour differences from 3pm - 7pm lighting. I always love photographing beautiful things and I hope you enjoy this beauty post.

First stop, H&M Beauty which was introduced by my friend Bella whom I recently met during our Olay trip to Singapore, but unfortunately we can't get it here in Kuala Lumpur. I actually bought it in Singapore last week while I was there for a day trip.

When Bella showed me the products that she bought, I was amazed by their colours. They really do have a wide selection of colours from lipstick, eyeshadow, nail polish, EVERYTHING! I seriously had a hard time choosing the colours that I wanted. Poor Mart, have to wait for me while I go round and round at their beauty corner. I've finally came to a conclusion to buy their blusher and their face mask. I mean, how adorable is their packaging? I am all about packaging because I want to make my make up table look aesthetically pleasing. 

I love my both of my blushers, Deep Brown and Rosy Brown. I've only tried Deep Brown and  the texture is actually quite rich, so you need to apply softly from it to your skin. Just gently brush it off lightly to your smiley cheeks to create the perfect look. I haven't tried the face mask, but I'll surely update you guys on that.

I think I am most obsess is with this beauty elixir by Caudalie. I was walking around Bangsar Village 2 where I saw this huge poster of this bottle which Jason Wu designed. I couldn't get my eyes off his design. Immediately I went inside Ken's Apothecary and the sales girl was so nice to me. She told me that this beauty elixir gives instant radiance and brightening while your pores will shrink. She had me when she said " It is also Victoria Beckham's favourite ". I was SOLD. But I bought a smaller bottle first to test it out. It was RM 65 for 30 ml. After I tried it for almost a month, I actually went back to the shop to get the bigger bottle. I really love this product as I feel fresh, and notice the instant brightening and radiance. It makes me feel good. I use this before and after makeup or whenever I am feeling tired. It is now my toner and I love it very very very very much.

1st October was the date that Victoria Beckham was releasing her makeup line together with Estēe Lauder in Malaysia. I was really excited about it but unfortunately I was away from the city so I couldn't get any. Once I was back, I managed to go to Gardens Mall but they don't have it there. It is only available at PARKSON KLCC and Pavilion. I was quite unlucky as most of their product was almost sold out and some were already long gone. I really wanted the BRONZER 01 Java Sun but it was sold out. Instead, I bought their lip liner which I love! It gives you this smooth nude brownish look just like VB's signature makeup. I also bought their eye liner that comes with a highlighter for your bottom  water line. Alternatively, you may use it also as an eye shadow to highlight your inner eye corners.

I was also blessed to receive this gift from Estēe Lauder. It is their new anti- ageing creme which is really rich and I can't wait to see how my skin will change in a months time. I am trying my best to apply it AM and PM and hope my wrinkles will miraculously lighten. This will also make your skin more firmer, supple, radiant and deeply nourished with plant stem cell extract and their powerful new skin-revitalizing technology, this light, multi-action, oil-free soft creme is the potent key to younger-looking skin.

Did I tell you that Estēe Lauder was my first makeup crush? I remembered my mom bought me my first set of makeup when I was studying in KL, and it was from Estēe Lauder. She is a fan of them and she only wanted me to use good products. She's obsess with their perfumes.

I also got this recently from Hugo Boss,  it has this strong feminine scent which is rich with exquisite notes like honeyed Peach, delicate Freesia bloom, captivating Osmanthus flower and intensely roasted Cocoa. If you like any of the notes, then this perfume is for you. It will make you feel like a Lady Boss with it's rich, strong yet light notes.

I've been using this Laneige BB cushion ever since Korea and this is their latest product. I used it everyday and I blend it with my beauty blender. It's the perfect day to night wear as it's light and it gives you this dewy skin look, making you look younger and fresh. I got this from PARKSON with  an awesome deal so I bought 2 boxes right away.

I can't believe I haven't tried this Louboutin Charm Lipstick yet! My good friend, Joyce bought it for me during my birthday in February and I so sayang wanna use it. I love the design so much as it looks elegant and I'm sure  the texture should be smooth too. I am still saving this for a special occasion.

This matte lipstick need no introduction. My ultimate favourite! I am currently using the KOKO K and it's one of the best matte lipstick that I've ever tried. Super smooth to apply and it dries quickly as well. It's quite hard to order one and they don't ship to Malaysia. I bought this from my friend Su Anne as the colour doesn't suit her. Then I bought one again online and shipped it to Jasiminne's apartment in London. It's quite hard to get one of these as it's always sold out. Plus with the different timing, it is completely madness to get one.

I got this while I was in Barcelona. At first I didn't know about this brand but I love everything in it. The clothes, bags, shoes! But they are quite expensive. WHYYYYYYYY!!!! I bought a few of their beauty products for my girlfriends and they love it. Their body mist actually lasts really long and the smell is to die for. You guys should check the shop out if you happen to be in Barcelona. You won't be disappointed.

NYX! NYX! NYX! I can't stress how much I love their soft matte lip creme! I bought different colours for different moods and occasions. I just bought the two deep red tones for my trip to Busan which I will be going end of the year with the husband. I am so ready for winter! The one that I daily uses will be STOCKHOLM which is my favourite amongst all. Do remember to check it out! Nice and affordable. You may purchase them from Sephora. You just walk in and see where is the most crowded, then you can find NYX there and then! Good luck :)

I love love love dry shampoos! It's even the Kardashian's must have items when it comes to hair. It gives volume and nice fluffy hair. This is already my second bottle. I love Percy and Reed because I am a sucker for packaging, Enough said. But, if you have anything to attend last minute and your hair looks abit oily, spray away with this! Helps instantly by removing the oily hair look.

So, what do you think? Found anything that you fancy? :)

My Makeup table :) If you spot anything that you want a review from me, do comment or drop me a message.

Before I end this post, I have to tell you this super secret to soft hair. It's the KENT COMB!You guys must seriously get this comb, I got mine from 1MK from D'Natural Hair & Beauty Shop. Try to comb one side of your hair and feel the differences. You're welcome. It can be mind blowing, I warn you first. Your husband will surely stroke your hair more often.

Till then, take care and stay beautiful :)

Ageless with Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence


that is all what we want to be. I have to admit, hitting 30 years old this year is still a big shock to me and I secretly wish to be ageless. I mean, who doesn't want to look young right? 

Now you can with the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre- Essence!

I was invited for the Olay media trip to Singapore last week where I was introduced to the revolutionary anti-ageing pre-essence which will be available in Malaysia on 1st October 2016 onwards. The Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre Essence will complete the Olay Regenerist Miracle Duo which is a dynamic skincare combination that comprises of the Pre-Essence and the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream. When this two dynamic duo is combined, the pre essence promises to boost renewal of surface cells and provide 2X more anti-ageing active penetration into your skin, effectively making your current skincare work better for you.

I know I certainly had a great time in Singapore with the Olay team as not only their products are good, their services are good too! We were flown to Singapore with MAS airlines and had a great 1 night 2 days stay at St. Regis Singapore. We were so well taken care off during this entire trip.

My room was amazing! The bed was perfect, the butler service was awesome and not forgetting the  toilet with the bath tub which I love the most. It was a great ME time, being away from Mika where I can sleep for 8 hours straight! 

Then we were all ushered to Nosh at Rochester Park where the event was held. It was a beautiful set up with lots of red and white. I also met and make some new friends which are so beautiful and nice.

With Emma and Cindy  #newhotfriends

The event was divided into two sections where the first part we learned a simple 5 minute makeup tip from Roseanne Tang, the famous Singaporean makeup artist and the second session where the Olay Scientist did a test for hydration and showed us the amazing results, comparing the Olay Regenerist Cream and brand X which is a more expensive cream but still Olay beat them! Woo hoo! With a cheaper price non the less! 

 * Clap hands *

I even got mine checked out and I could see the differences after using the Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Pre-Essence. What I love about it is that it's super light weight and I could feel my face is more soft and supple. But if I combined it with the Olay Micro-Sculpting Cream, my face somehow gotten smaller a little bit and feels more hydrated and tight! I was seriously amazed as it is seriously a perfect combo! There is now hope for youthful skin!

 Thank you so much Olay for the amazing product and trip to Singapore! Special thanks to Mei Ling and Tasha for arranging everything.

Now I can look younger and fresher.

Hello Amverton Cove!

Hello Amverton Cove
Golf & Island Resort

If you are looking for a nearby place for a short getaway, Amverton Cove is your answer. 

In my opinion, this place is a perfect All-In-One resort.

For the fathers: Award Winning Golf Course
For the mothers: Award Winning Sompoton Spa
For the kids : Outdoor activities such as ATV, swimming pool, biking, boat riding, kayaking, archery, paintball, rock climbing, and many more
For the toddlers: Have you seen their Kid's Fun Zone and Games Room? Mika sure had fun there!

For corporates : 4 meeting rooms and 1 grand ballroom

To reach Amverton Cove, it's only a 50 minutes drive from Kuala Lumpur and it was such an enjoyable ride as we get to see much greenery in such a short distance. I seriously never heard of this place before and was really excited to see what they have for us!

I've prepped Mika that we are going on a holiday and we get to feed the animals and boy, was he excited for this family trip. He was  in a good mood the whole time in the car! Thank goodness for short rides!

We immediately checked into our deluxe room which was very spacious and clean. The staff werevery friendly and the General Manager, Mr. David was very welcoming as they took us for a small tour around the island. Such good hospitality which is what we always look forward to during our holidays.

Our view from the room was picture perfect. Need I say more?

Look how beautiful it is! I really love the view of lush landscape around me which reminds me of Taiping. So serene and calming. Can I just wake up to this amazing view every day?

I really love the sunset garden! I mean, we could host some private party at the beautiful venue... perhaps our anniversary wedding dinner or a birthday celebration.

After our lunch at the Golfers' terrace, we sat down to enjoy the view of the prestigious 18- hole golf course. Later on we went back to enjoy our room while waiting for evening to arrive so that we could take Mika to the Animal Island and then straight to the pool to cool down.

This is actually Mika's first time feeding animals such as goats and rabbits. He really enjoyed his time here. He loves the rabbits the most and he kept on sayang-ing them. There was also a snake show which WOW-ed the audience. I was personally scared to death as snakes are  my biggest snakes but the man handled it very well. All of the kids were so excited during his show.

This is also Mika's first time sitting on a cute pony for his picture taken.

And here's another first time for Mika, petting a prairie dog. I mean, how often can you say that you've touched a prairie dog before? This particular one was so friendly that when David called him, he ran straight away to his arms! Amazing and so much love!

So many first times, so many good memories! Thank you, David!

Mika and PaPa enjoying their boat ride to and from Animal Island.

Then we hit the pool to cool down and unwind. Mika loves the slide so much that they went for it almost 5-6 times! I mean, look at the splash pool, don't you just wanna sit there and get splashed? All the kids were enjoying themselves at that section. Lots of laughter and splashes! 

The sunset view was so amazing that these pictures still don't do enought justice! You must visit yourself to experience it.

Right after dinner, we took Mika to the Kids' Fun Zone for some playtime and this place is very well- equipped I must say!

It's spacious and there are many things for kids and toddlers to play here! Marcus and I sat happily while Mika kept himself busy inside. This is like the mini version of Jungle Gym that we have in KL.

I was amazed because not many resorts have this kind of service. 

We also checked out The Hummingbird room which consists of pool tables, foosball tables, bar, lounge and even karaoke rooms! Such a cool place to end the tiring day where you can just chill with your family and friends.

Then after a fun long day, Mika fell asleep really fast as he was very tired from all the activities earlier. I enjoyed watching some shows on Astro while PaPa did some of his work.

The next morning, we had our breakfast at the Rabbit Room while enjoying the view and also feasting on a wide selection of breakfast choices.

Mika with his new friends, Sarah and Sophie. They are actually my ex-lecturer's kids whom I met there! Hope your family enjoyed your stay there too, Va Nee! :) 

After breakfast, it's time for MaMa to relax before heading back to the busy city.

The Sompoton Spa is an award winning spa and it was a great way to end my holiday there, especially with Mika around. PaPa took him again to the Kids' Fun Zone while MaMa got her one- hour traditional massage. The masseuse was really gentle and funny! Hello Kak Rose :) Thank you so much for making my one hour such a relaxing time for me. 

Overall, we really enjoyed ourselves especially Mika. He still talks about feeding the animals and also the Kids' Fun Zone. I am just happy that he had a great weekend! 

I highly recommend this place to families who would love a short getaway without any traffic jam. This place is really such a perfect place for families to bond and just relax. It is for everyone of any age. 

Till then, Amverton Cove! You have given us such a wonderful experience, thank you so much :)
