5 REASONS YOU SHOULD THANK YOUR MOM WITH FLOWERS ON MOTHER'S DAY

Your mom has done so much for you. There may be misunderstandings and disagreements but have you remembered all the great things she had done for you?


Reason 1: She exquisitely made you 

Your mom bear you in her tummy for 9 long months. If you think the process is simple, no, think back to your Form 4 Biology. There's so much process to the birth of us, and through that process, she nurture & nourish us with love and dedication.  

Reason 2: She fed you

Your mom fed you, by her own and from her own. (at least for 3 years! #breastfeeding) She took care of your meals and nutrients so that you grow healthy, strong and tall.

Reason 3: She protects you

Your mom warns you when it's dangerous. She teaches you what is right and wrong so that you will not be harmed and most importantly, safe and sound.

Reason 4: She is always there 

Your mom is always there for you in joy and sorrow. She is there to support you no matter what decision you make. She hopes for the best of you because, you are her precious. 

Reason 5: She loves you from the bottom of her heart

Your mom loves you no matter how bad your grades are, how rebellious you've became or even how much you've change. To her, nothing has changed. You are her child, she had you from the beginning and she promised to love you forever irregardless.

#Beauty: Roses for your beauty regime

Roses are red, Violets are blue. 
I'm in love with pink, you should too. 


Bio Chem (from Taiwan) is out with an upgraded face wash that will complete every girls dream of roses. You want roses for Valentines, you want it in your tea? Now you can have it on your face too, and the fragrance will linger! ps, THE PACKAGING IS PINK. I'm in looveee

Damascena Rose whitening wash 

This product with added vitamin B12 and uses Damascus rose water to bring a pleasant atmosphere with sweet aroma; it is as if you amble into a Bulgarian rose garden. 

It claims to: Relax and indulge in the aroma while washing it off your face / removing makeup. Precious Damascus rose extract is used to nourish the skin with effects of cleansing / makeup removal / moisturizing / whitening / nourishing all in one. 

I've been using mousse/foam facial wash for the longest time so using a product like this is not new to me. However if you do not know, you are in for some fun! 

Press pump to get an appropriate amount of mousse/foam to hands.

Then just wash your face as usual. Like how you normally do lol. duh

It's been a week since I've used it on my face. I love how the scent of roses is so dominant. However, my face is super squeaky clean, like literally the 'squeak squeak' sound is there after I wash it off. It's not a bad thing but I'm usually very afraid to use products that leaves my skin so squeaky for a long term because it may be too drying after a while. 

Removing makeup, does it really work?!

I have not tried it on my face with a full on makeup because my routine is to always remove it first then only cleanse.

So... I did a test! 
Here I have my eyeliner(not so waterproof)  and my concealer (by Makeupforever)

Pumping out a right amount of foam, I then wash it in a circular motion while massaging it. 

and.. here's the result!
The eyeliner is completely removed but there are still some residue left from the concealer. It's still amazing how it actually washed off so much of the products! Usually most product doesn't. 

Anyway, it's always always always better to remove makeup before cleansing face. The double cleansing is a need!

If you would like to know further about this pretty little product, click here to find out more! 


And, They are having a Buy 1 Free 1 promo right now for only RM92.07!! (you save 54%)

You can also check out their online store here or even their Facebook for more range of products! 
If you're obsess with roses, this is totally for you!

#Beauty: Brighten Dark Spots with just one step!

Back when I was still studying in high school, acne was my number 1 concern and also the only problem that wrecked my whole confidence down the drain. Whenever there's a eruption, I'll instantly squeeze them out thinking it will just go away the day after. Obviously that's not the case, I'm left with dark scars which would take a long while to disappear or just never. 

Can't believe I finally said this but I've found a solution to my embarrassing scars. 

 
Taiwan made product, Swissvita believes in natural beauty. Of course, these days most products aims to nurture and cure our own skin instead of covering them in layers of makeup. The key ingredient used is AC-11®,  a safe, plant-based, water-soluble plant extract that can only be found in the Amazon Rainforest and clinically proven to repair your DNA,  reduce skin damage from the sun and daily life activities as well as double the production of Collagen 3. Also, helping you achieve younger looking skin, reducing the appearance of dark spots and fine lines.


 This magical product is called, Swissvita Micrite 3D All use Anti-Spot Serum. It had won the Oscar beauty award for whitening and spot reducing and also rated 5 star review on Amazon. 

Packaging is very Medical-ish but the great thing is that it's aluminum sealed to prevent the risk of contamination! 


Paraben-free, Alcohol Free and Fragrance free, the product is  not oily  and light weighted which is definitely suitable for all skin types! 

I'm usually cautious when I try new products on my face. Because it is my first time using this, I test it out on a problematic spot I had recently and these are the results. Ps, excuse how disgusting my pores look close up haha


In fact it did lighten up my dark spot! I wouldn't say it was an instant effect but it took about 10 days for it to be lighten to the bottom picture.

If you guys have any problematic spots, you could surely give this a try! 
You can purchase it here for only RM130 !

#Beauty: ENHANCE YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY IN 9 STEPS

Okay. So I admit I always envy those with flawless skin. Especially those girls who still looks good even with the slight-less make up. How do you even do this?! #TeachmeSenpai
Well, lucky me I just got the secret recipe to that  baby  smooth  butt.

Shizens recently approached me to try out their new collection that promotes natural beauty while nurturing your skin from the inside out. For a busy but honestly just lazy person like me, their new collection is so simple and easy to use! It took me 2 minutes to complete my skin care and 8 minutes to apply make up. #howbouthat

The highlight of this collection will be this wonderful skin regenerating ingredient called
Ceramide III.

Shizens Visage Collection


There are 3 skin care and 6 make up products in total of this new collection.Their products are manufactured from both Korea and Japan.

I've been using this product for about 2 weeks now and it has been magical journey! My skin definitely has a healthier glow and overall improvement. Of course, I wish my skin will be as perfect as a Korean's but our weather won't do and hey, it has only been 2 weeks! haha

Here are the vital skin cares.

Key to a Healthy Skin


The Time Resistance Essence is an anti-aging essence which includes the Ceramide III makes sure to keep skin firm, toned, brighten, nourished and moisturized deep within. It strengthens and supports the renewal of our skin yet forms an effective barrier against moisture loss.

What is smooth and supple without moisture?

To double the power to a healthy skin, this Time Resistance Night Cream will lock in the essence. I recommend using this during the day too because with the lack of moisture in your skin, you might get complications like dry skin or even acne.

Even up skin tone + a pinch of lifting!

The Ultimate Potent promotes a smooth and youthful appearance instantly. Obviously, how can we miss a step like this? This product can be used to set make up or even to complete the final step of skin care routine.

Make up products
I am very very very berry excited to share their new makeup range with you guys!
To remind you again, Shizens main goal is to look as Natural possible. Stating the obvious, the range of colours are pretty neutral, inspired by the Korean makeup! Yes, Perfect for an everyday look too.

Foundation


It caught me off guard when I saw the foundation was not liquid but stick. I was really hoping it was liquid but oh well, stick works too! The Natural Pore Nutrient Foundation Pro is imparted with Vitamin E, light weight, sheer and silky. The best thing about this product is it is against fine lines and pore imperfection! WHICH ALSO MEANS NO CREASES YAS. However, I would recommend this to those with dry skin. It will be overwhelmingly moisturizing for those with oily or combination skin.

Liquid Foundation Enhancement

I know, you're like what? Foundation Enhancement? What you talking bout gurl.
The Aqua Pore Perfection serve to do some natural shading (that is if you pick a darker shade) and retain moisture of skin while reflecting the damages from UVB ray. I did not want to use it as a contour product because their darkest shade will pretty much blend into my own skin tone. They only had 3 shades. So I just use it as a glow kit or maybe even as a normal foundation.

Foundation Brush


SUPER LOVE the brush that came with the Foundation. It's mini, compact and and the brush is spreads the foundation smoothly!

Eyeshadow


I am absolutely happy with their Hue-Duo Eyeshadow in Mocha Glow even though it's just two simple colours because it's so compact, yet is my exact go to colour and easy to use! Hellooo, Orange and brown is the in thing for Korean makeup look ya know :P

Eyeliner


I AM SPEECHLESS. Their cushion liquid eyeliner absolutely blew my mind.
I have heard of BB cushion but NOT eyeliner cushion. It's super adorable and clever! The cushion sponge allows the comprised brush to fully saturate in rich and highly pigmented liquid eyeliner for smooth and even application. Now we don't need to dip into our pot of thick gel eyeliner mess and get uneven application/ ruining the brush.

Matte Lips

The Smack Lips is STUNNING. AMAZING. I LOVE IT. It's matte and actually damn long lasting! Not even kidding. Enriched with coconut oil and sunflower butter, it's does not crack your lips! Can't even beat Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid or Colourpop. I picked a brighter colour, Orange Tango because duh, I want to be as bright as the sun. Juuust kidding, the colour is super pretty.



So, Did I manage to make you fall in love with their new collection?

Because Shizens is having an introductory offer called the Visage Essential which includes:

Smack Lips- Plum Wine
Smack Lips- Orange Tango
Aqua Eyeliner - Black
Aqua Eyeliner- Brown
Hue-Duo Eyeshadow- Mocha Glow
Shizens Professional brush set (6 brushes)

#WeekendRecap: Terracotta Cafe and Boutique with my girls

*Not Sponsored*
What a lovely Sunday for a good o' brunch with my fellow blogger sisters ❤️️


Terracotta Cafe and Boutique is located in Tropicana Avenue,1st floor. Opens daily 10am to 12 midnight. This place is really new, the parking wasn't straight forward anddd there weren't any directory to where this cafe was located! But on the bright side, at least this cafe left me with positive vibes.😊

You'll see why in snippets of my little insta story below!

video

Pretty interior and best of all..
video
ALL THE Dream catchers every girl wishes for !

Yes gals, the interior is so good that it's mandatory to have a picture with this backdrop.


Of course it isn't just the interior that's amazing.. the food and beverages looks amazing too!

Yass, all 7 colours on your table.

Food was okay for me. I really liked the Nasi Lemak Biru best but the chicken was pathetically small lol.

They are especially famous for their colour changing tea and their Unicorn tears (dessert)

video
This is called, Butterfly Pea Tea. PEA NOT PEE. My first glance at the menu, i'm like BUTTERFLY PEE? LOL

Doesn't this feels a little nostalgic? Like going back to chemistry class back in high school? However, this tea doesn't taste any special. Coming from the 3 of us, we thought it just tasted just like water. They gave us lemon and honey so it should taste like honey lemon water after mixing it together with the blue tea.

And also another special beverage called ' ONE NIGHT STAND', calling out those lonely girls out there.. lol

Also mixed with the Butterfly Pea Tea, this one at least tasted better but no happening chemistry because it's just one night stand. *geddit geddit? HAHAHA*

And for the finale we got ourself the Unicorn Teardrop.

video
Excuse my imagination tho... doesn't it really look like boob implantations??

HAHAHA jokes aside..

It taste kind of like those rubbery jellies we usually eat in buffets or parties. I really liked it since I looove jellies. They actually came with Coconut milk on the side but it doesn't go well to my taste. According to them, they have 7 different colours of Unicorn Teardrops every season. I'm not sure how long does one season takes, but look out for it!

Final Verdict: The food is good and creative, ambience is lovely! Did I mention they have a boutique at the corner of the cafe too?
I totally recommend to those who wants to chill out with your best friends, take photos and eat pretty food or needs a little retail therapy!

Totally instaworthy to visit!

Experience with H ART CONCEPT vs NUMBER 76

*Not a sponsored post*
The last time I fix my hair was back in August last year with Number 76. If you have not read my experience with them, make sure to read it HERE because you don't want to miss out real reviews.

Don't get me wrong that I didn't like Number 76, everybody adore their works. Despite being overrated which also lead to popularity and high priced hair makeovers, I still like them for their professional services and hair treatments (though I have not tried the treatments, it does look promising).

6 months later I needed to fix my hair. Poor girl like me ain't rich. 

I definitely never regret going to Number76 as I learn so much about the products they used.

THIS: OLAPLEX or FIBREPLEX.



is something you should look for if you are planning to lighten your hair.

Just like what it says, it reduces damages.

H Art Concept is located opposite Taylor University SS15 Campus. (Upstairs)

I came across them over social media 3 weeks before had an appointment with them. Their works caught my attention since it was pretty bright colours. As you know me, I love outstanding colours.

I inquired and they had me to come over to get a free consultation on my hair.

This, is something different compared to 76.

H Art Concept actually took time to listen to my 'hair issues' and gave me suggestions. I told them what I want and like, and they will give me their honest opinions. If they can't do it, they will decline, if they can, they will happily go for it.

This is what Sky (creative director and my hair stylist) quoted ' We only want to achieve quality work for our customers.'
He also said something along this lines 'Our works are 99 percent to what you wished for.'

This is why, he explained that he will want to bleach my hair cleanly because he believe that the fading colour should be great too.

My major makeover took me about 6 hours to finish. (Bring your own water and something to snack on if you're planning to get your hair done here) They may not serve you tea or cookies, but I would say I felt more at home and comfortable to walk around. My hairdresser talks to me as though like we had met before and a lady customer there who was their friend was so friendly to me!
This is just my experience but it may be different for you.

My hair colour was 2 bleaches + 1 colour + hair cut + Fibreplex which cost RM400

Number 76 charged me almost double the price for only 1 bleach + 1 colour + Olaplex + Haircut

I wanted a pink which would fade into a pastel pink and a hint of purple at the bottom to make things more lively. My hair stylist wasn't keen on the purple initially but I'm glad I still followed my own instinct because IT LOOK SO GOOD T_T #unicornhairforever

They used the newest Schwarzkopf hair dye for the pink and Korean dye for the purple.

Note: Korean hair dyes will be hard to strip off after wash but it is also hard to strip off with bleach.

Final Verdict:
I'm am very amazed with the quality of their works for such a reasonable price. I would definitely come back for another makeover and would totally recommend them to you guys! No complains so far! lol

Bausch+Lomb Cosmetic Lenses : Lacelle Colour and Diamond Series

I've been wanting to write this little review on the Bausch+Lomb cosmetic lenses for a while now and finally had time to. Previously, I've been using Freshkon lenses and I wanted to try a different brand.

About mid year last year, I was invited for the media launch of Lacelle Diamond Daily and that was the first time I've ever tried on any of their lenses. After my monthly Freshkon lenses expired, I decided to give B+L's monthly lenses a try because I was really happy with their new daily's!

Top: Lacelle Diamond Daily, Bottom: Lacelle Colour

The packaging is obviously the most lovely I ever seen for soft lenses. 10★ for that!

Let's start with the new series. Since I participated in the Media Launch, I pretty much learned about the background of this new lens. To make this sweet, short and simple, the Lacelle Diamond Daily's is inspired by girls best friends, yup you guessed it; Diamonds. B+L goal on creating this new lenses is to bring confidence into woman even without any make up on. Another goal is to achieve comfort for the whole day which is why, they only created daily's. (10pcs in a box) They have 3 colours which are Aqua Glacier, Champagne Brown and Pink Rose.The lenses are designed like diamonds, it sparkles literally :)

Here is the Lacelle Diamond Pink Rose:

You can see that the design of the lenses have a little black ring on the outer edge. Fear not, it will not make your eyes look like Mickey Mouse. The little black ring actually makes your eye brighter naturally!


The pink is actually pretty decent. If you don't tell anyone the colour you're wearing, they might even think it's brown! The fact that it gives that sparkle effect, it gives a cute feminine edge to your whole makeup!


Lacelle Diamond Daily in Champagne Brown:

Well, Brown is a pretty basic lens colour. You can never go wrong with brown lenses.


Since it is a natural based colour, it is definitely a go to daily lenses for normal occasions. A little spark on the eye makes a whole lot of difference eh :)


Unfortunately I did not pick the 3rd colour to try it on since I felt like the blue isn't as natural and it wouldn't fit me and my daily look.

Moving onnnn to the Lacelle Colours (Monthly) in Grey:

I did not go for any media launch or got any press kits for this series but just wanted to try it for own.

I wanted to try if it is as comfortable and pretty as the other lenses that I've been using. (Previously was using: Freshkon Alluring Eyes Series)


Honestly, I am not too keen on the design of this lens. I would prefer more subtle lines so that my eyes would look more natural. The design however does give a unique sparkle on it's own but in my own opinion, the Lacelle series is more gorgeous.

Comfort level isn't that great too compared to the Freshkon brand. The lenses are slightly thicker hence the water content lost quicker than longer.
