Anyway, the event was held couple of weeks ago at TGV Indulge, One Utama Shopping Centre. Have you been to TGV Indulge? If you don’t go and try it. The seat is super comfy and each person were also equipped with a nice smooth purple blanket to make the whole experience extra comfy!

When I first arrived, I lingered around at the lounge area where all the new products for Za Autumn/Winter 2014 & Za Men were displayed. I have close encountered with the products and yes.. Beauty products always gets me excited! After most of the guest arrived, we were then ushered into the stylo looking hall. The MC of the day is DJ, model and TV host Patricia Knudsen.

So are your curious of what are the products launch? Drum roll… They introduce us to their all new 24 hours, waterproof and smudge proof Gel Eyeliner ( Maybe I’ll try to do a review on this as this eyeliner really tickle my fancy). Then were were also introduced to the all-new Perfect Fit Liquid Foundation which comes is a water base formula. Haven't got the chance to try this one yet but I am quite curious as this time around it is water base). Apart from that they have new sisters for the anti-aging range, which is Perfect Solution Youth Whitening Serum. What makes this serum special is that it is both whitening and anti-aging in just one bottle.

Jul 20, 2014

 

image

Olla everyone!

How are you today? Hope you are doing great Smile Apart from super hot weather we are facing right now, I hope everyone is in a good health. Thanks to “panas” and juggling to take care of my newborn, workload, house chores and so onnnnnn I tend to sweat! Is it panic attack? or is it the weather? maybe just a combination of all that. The thing is when this happened my hair tend to smell like “peluh” and look so dull. 

Today I would like to share with you about this new range Shampoo by Pantene. Pantene is a very familiar name to me. When someone mentioned Pantene the first thing came across my mind was their product’s signature smell. To me the scent is super feminine smell with the hint of floral and fruits.

As a beauty blogger, I tested quite a number of shampoo. The one thing that makes me like Pantene is that every time I use it it leave my hair smells nice all day long, as if I just jump out of the shower.I normally shampoo my hair every two days to avoid drying.For those who love to shampoo on daily basis.. worry not as Pantene formula is safe to be used on daily basis.

This new range also help prevent the 10 signs of hair damage. Plus they now improved and incorporate this Keratin Damage Blockers technology, it claims to gives 99% damage protection for softer and more manageable hair. This Keratin Damage Blockers Technology (KBD) also help to capture and neutralise excessive oxidative minerals in the hair so that your hair can be smooth, shiny and healthy.

 

image

One of the thing that make me like this product is the affordability. I like it when good products come at reasonable price. So, almost everyone could enjoy the product tooo! Apart from that, this will also encourage more and more ladies to take care of their body and make them feel good about themselves Smile 

If you are wondering, each products costing from RM9.90 for 170ml and yes you may get it almost anywhere. Local store, pharmacy, supermarket… you name it.

SKIPHOP Diaper Bag Chelsea Satchel Review

Jul 17, 2014

 

image

 

Olla everyone!

It have been 2 months plus ever since Baby Sofea arrived into this world. I am beyond happy and graced with her presence into our life. Love her so much that I wish that I could bring her every where I go.. hahaha.. The thing is I never raise a baby before, it have been ages since the last time I hold a baby and let alone to bring a newborn out for a jalan2 session.

I need all the tips and help I could get. One of the most crucial tips I got is that, you need to always be prepared for anything. Even for 1 hour trip to buy groceries, if you bringing your baby then you need to  bring all of her back up stuff. Back up stuff you said? Ya.. Things like extra diapers (most important), extra clothes (baby tend to vomit and they get uncomfortable when their outfit is wet), handkerchief, wet tissue, soft toy (to calm her down), pacifier and etc… In a nutshell, you just have to be prepared.

To carry all this baby stuff, you need a diaper bag. At first, I was like… How am I supposed to carry a baby then my handbag then diaper bag then stroller then my baby wrap??? I don't have extra hands like mr.octopus. Which is why I am so happy when I come across this stylo diaper bag from SKIPHOP. Like seriously.. does it look like a diaper bag from a first glance?  Nope.. right?

I just love this Chelsea Satchel diaper bag. It is so effortlessly stylish. So, I don't have to bring extra handbag. I can just dump my purse,hand phone in there combine with baby sofea’s items. Lets have a closer look.

 

image

This is the front view. As you can see it comes in black colour with gold and faux lather detailing. It also came with 2 compartment for bottle. I breastfeed my baby most of the time so wont be using the bottle section that much. I have been using the 2 insulated bottle pocket on each side to input some of most frequent use items like pacifier as it is easier to grab.

 

image

 

Check out the side view, isn't it just pretty and chic? The golden zip gave a nice contrast to the black faux leather material.Owh ya.. it also come with an adjustable strap & non-slip rolled tote straps. I love to use the tote straps while my my hubby love to use the adjustable strap. Since the bag is in black colour and look gender natural, my hubby do not hesitate to help me carry it around sometime. Imagine if my diaper bag is in pink, surely it will be a different case… hahaha

image

image

Apart from all that, one of the reason why I love this diaper bag is that its functionality.It comes with 12 pockets, including 4 interior pockets! This helps me to organise and arrange all items neatly. Which resulting a quick way to get the things I wanted to grab. When you have a crying baby in your arm, all you need is speed to get the exact things she wanted to calm her down as soon as possible. Sometime, I felt like I am on a TV Game show where the clock is ticking and I have to race against time.. hahaha

As you can see from the above picture, Chelsea Satchel diaper bag also comes with studded feet. This will help to keep the bag clean and off the ground. Neat huh?

 

 

image

image

One of my most favourite feature of this bag is that, it also comes with this cushioned changing pad or you might also known it for changing mat. It have a specific compartment at the back of the bag and I found it super useful. You know when you are travelling or outside of your home and your baby need her diaper to be replace, the last thing you want is to simply lay your baby on top of anything.

I am trying to avoid doing so, as baby’s immune system is still building up and God knows what kind of germs are laying around those areas. With this changing mat, it gave me the sense of relieve. I know and understand that I cant be protecting her all the time from every single thing. At least, I am trying my very best to reduce the amount of contact with bacteria and all that nasty stuff that she might have by exposing her body directly to an unknown surface.

P/s: This bag is currently retailing at RM389.00 (Trust me the quality justify the price) and you may get it from Bloom & Grow retailers.

So ya, thats about it.Thank you for reading my humble post and what do you think of this diaper bag? Cantik tak?

NARS Cases, How to clean it? Simple, cheap and fast!

Jul 13, 2014

image

Olla everyone!

How's your Monday so far? I hope everything goes great at your end and today I would like to share with you a tips on how to clean your NARS Cases in a very simple, affordable and very fast as well.

I love each of my NARS products and have been utilizing them most of the time. The thing is NARS casing have the tendency to turn NASTY.. hahaha.. I bet I am not the only one facing this. Thanks to the signature rubbery packaging ( I STILL LOVE IT as it is unique and nice to be hold) it collect finger prints and dust. If you own at least one NARS product you should know what I'm talking about.

As you can see in the first picture above, all you need is the affordable yet super versatile product which is Vaseline, then cotton bud and cotton sheet. You may also substitute the cotton sheet with cloth. I tried using microfiber cloth but I still prefer using cotton sheet instead as it does the job better from my experience.

image

So how do you do it? Scoop generous amount Vaseline and put it on your cotton sheet and start cleaning your NARS cases with it. I would highly recommend to use the cotton bud to scoop it as it will be more hygienic and to prevent contamination.

 

Wanna see the result? Check out below. My NARS looking as good as new!

Thank you for taking time to read my post, and hoping that will help you to maintain your NARS case. Have your tried this before? If you dont, have fun and let me know if you have any other tips on how to clean it!



 

* I am not paid to write this. The Vaseline is my personal purchase and you may find it at any beauty store or pharmacy. I got mine for only RM8.80 per tube. As usual, I will test and review products or services regardless of whether they have been sent to me or not with honesty. Unless stated so in the post or marked with an asterisk, all products featured on this blog have been bought with my own hard-earned pennies. I started this blog to give my two pennies worth of thought and have fun along the way and that is exactly how this blog shall remain.

BusOnlineTicket.com - Fun a easy way to buy your tickets!

Jul 12, 2014

 

 

Olla everyone!

When is the last time you travelled by bus? One of my most memorable trip on a bus is during my trip to Tioman with my hubby. We went from Terminal Selatan to Mersing and from there we took a ferry to Tioman. It was such a fun trip!

I remembered how tedious it was to and find time to purchase the tickets. Spend so much time to get parking at Pudu, then have to que to buy those tickets and all that. Long story short, I have to spend time and energy just to purchase the 2 tikets.

Which is why I am so happy when I found out with BusOnlineTicket.com I dont have to go trough all of that anymore.. Ya beda bedu…. I just buy my tickets online. All I need to do is just click2 and then settle.

image

 

Don't you just love the internet? BusOnlineTicket.com is so convenient to use.

This website can even be used when you out and about outside Malaysia. Check out the great selection of start point as well as destination.

Did I mention that it is also applicable for East Malaysia? Which mean lets say you are travelling to Kota Kinabalu and you wanted to go to Sandakan or Tawau. You don't have to find extra time to make the ticket purchase you can just do it at the comfort of your hotel room right before you go to sleep. Convenient huh?

Tanamera Set Bersalin Review

Jul 5, 2014


image

Olla everyone!
Hari ini illy nak share pasal Set Bersalin Tanamera. Kalau korang planning nak ada baby or currently tengah pregnant, harap2 this review akan dapat bantu korang Smile Yer la, kita mesti nak yang terbaik untuk diri kita dan baby kita betul tak? Nak2 pulak kalau first baby lagi la excited itu ini.. Illy ada buat research aritu pasal perbandingan2 set2 bersalin. Bukan ape kalau tak kena dengan kita risau membazir jer da la mahal set2 ni kan.
First of all, illy nak ucap terima kasih kat kawan2 illy dari FedEx sebab belikan set ni sebagai hadiah. Illy memang da target nak beli set ni, kebetulan dorang da belikan. Alhamdullilah, rasa bersyukur sangat.
Sepanjang waktu berpantang, illy gunakan set tanamera ni da juga set bersalin afiat. Hari ni illy share pasal tanamera dulu, nanti kalau illy da tulis pasal set bersalin afiat tu, illy share link dia kat section Pregnancy post kat tepi side bar blog k?
image
First, perkenalkan my favourite product dalam set ni, Herbal Massage oil dan Virgin Coconut oil. Memang illy pakai hari2. Paling berbaloi. Masa lepas bersalin, memang akan lenguh2 satu badan, kalau illy paling sakit part bahu. So, memang illy pakai herbal massage oil ni. Bau dia best sangat herbal and calming.
Virgin coconut oil, do I really need to introduce this? Well, rasa nya memang ramia yang tahu kelebihan nya. Bole sapu2 kat badan (stretch mark, perineal massage) dan juga bole minum (yes, siap bole minum hebat tak?) minum untuk mudahkan process bersalin nanti.  Da kata pun virgin coconut, bau dia memang bau kelapa. Wangi sangat, felt like a walking coconut tree when ever I lather the oil to my body.

image

Next, Feminine Herbal Wash. Cara nak guna just rebus this sachet ni dan air dia buat untuk basuh ehem2. Mula2 tu rajin la enjin husband tolong masakan air, pastu illy just rendam pakai hot shower lagi senang. Gunakan sebagai bilasan terakhir. Herbal wash ni bantu bersihkan bahagian ehem2 sambil untuk elakan masalah perempuan.
image
Yang ni Boreh Body Scrub, bau dia kuat because of the herbal dalam tu. Masa pregnant kan ada  banyak pigmentation gelap2 kat celah2 ketiak la, peha la so boleh guna scrub ni untuk reduce’kan colour of the pigmentation tu. Illy suka pakai scrub ni together with the brown soap. Actually the brown soap before bersalin illy da start pakai dah. Kan that day illy kena pembawakan budak. Bergaru satu badan and they call it PPUP, so pakai brown soap memang start dari 36 weeks of pregnancy sampai la dalam pantang continue jer pakai.
Yang best pasal brown soap tu, dia da infused granule2 dalam tu so alang2 bersabun bole scrub sekali badan. Bau dia reminds me of cengkih. Sedap harum jer. Tips: kalau nak brown soap tu tahan lama, illy potong2 bentuk cube pastu pakai skit-skit.

image
Herbal Tea ni, illy amalkan sulam2 dengan air masak biasa. Illy perasan bila minum jer herbal tea ni mesti darah nifas keluar banyak. Sebab minum ni dia lancarkan perjalanan darah then apa lagi keluar la kaw2. Bagus sebab darah kotor memang kena keluarkan dari badan baru bersih dan sihat.
Bau die tak best sangat, tapi nak jaga badan punya pasal telannnnn

image
Next this Calming Herbal Paste, atau lebih dikenali sebagai pilis. Yang ni just campur skit dengan air macam paste pastu letak kat dahi. Illy pakai pilis ni sekali sekala jer.. Memang la best sedap bau menenangkan cume serbuk dia suka tumpah2 so risau bed sheet and bantal kotor.
Tips : Kalau tak nak serbuk tu jatuh, bole pakai kat dahi pastu ambik kain skit ikat macam ninja. Haaa.. baru la tak jatuh.
Last but not least floral water spray dan benkung. Illy pakai floral water spray tu buat macam face mist, bau lavender memang sedap. Bawa ke mana2 bile nak rasa refresh just spray jer. Kalau you all nak buat face mask pun bole spray buat campur dengan your fav mask.

Bengkung Tanamera high quality style ikat2. So kalau nak pakia memang kena orang bantu, kalua da pro pakai sorang pun takpe. Tapi illy baru anak first mana pernah pakai benkung ni. Masa ada orang datang mengurut tu, makcik tu yang tolong pakaikan.
Kalau ceaserian macam illy, kalau bole elakan pakai ketat2 kat tempat jahit operation. Situ kena longgar bahagian atas takpe ketat. Illy personally lagi prefer pakai benkung yang zap2 tu jer senang citer. Illy ada share pasal Belly bandit, memang sesuai kalau korang macam illy ni tak berapa reti nak ikat situ sini.

So that’s about it. Harga set ni RM350 and ramai yang suka beli set ni sebab tak payah nak makan jamu2. Illy jenis yang makan je jamu tu yang illy combine dengan set bersalin afiat. Korang camner pulak? Pakai set apa? Berkesan tak?

image


*I am not paid or requested to do this review, I was given the Tanamera set as a gift from my kawan2. I just decided to share my experience using it and hope that it would help others to have more insight while considering which post natal care set to go for.


UPDATE 12/1/2015 : illy finally siap review set bersalin afiat

NARS SUMMER 2014 COLOR COLLECTION ‘ADULT SWIM’ Funky Summer Look

Jul 2, 2014

 

image

Olla everyone and selamat berpuasa Smile

I am back and this time around with NARS Summer Collection again! Yup, it is so much fun playing around with NARS make up, I created another look using the collection. Do you have any plan for going out? Like maybe a special occasion, buka puasa reunion or friends wedding?  If you do, then hope you enjoy this post and my creation of NARS funky summer look.

As per earlier post, I have this stunning Tropical Princess Duo as well as Baablek eye paint. There are endless possibilities when it comes to make  up especially when the colour is pigmented and the texture is smooth.

 

image

 

If you can see here, the colours are just so pretty. I tried using the icy lilac for base and to bright up inner corner of my eye as well as to give a lil dimension under my eye. It work wonders! Anyway,lets cut the chase and get down to business shall we?

BRACE YOURSELF, as you going to see ‘au de natural face and giant pores during this process.

image

This is my before picture. I am using NARS Pure Tinted Moisturizer in St.Moritz Medium 1 and NARS Powder Foundation in Punjab Medium 1 in here. You may read my review about these two products by clicking below.

Link : http://www.illyariffin.com/2014/04/nars-powder-foundation-spf-12-pa-review.html

Link : http://www.illyariffin.com/2014/04/nars-pure-radiant-tinted-moisturizer.html

 

image

 

Step 1 : Spread Icy Lavender (Tropical Princess Duo) all over your eyelid and make like a line below your eyelid and blend it.

Step 2 : Apply Baablek at the outer corner of your eye and blend it evenly. If you want more dramatic look, you can layer the Baablek eye paint for greater intensity.

Step 3 : Take a small eye shadow brush and apply Neon Lime (Tropical Princess Duo) at the inner corner of your eye and blend it toward the center of your eyelid.

Step 4 : Put on an eyeliner, your favourite mascara (would recommend volumizing type like NARS volumizing mascara for this look) a dash of blusher and your favourite lipstick. If you going for occasion during the day maybe can opt for lighter shade of lipstick to tone it down. I decided to go all out an put on a fuchsia base lipstick on!

 

P/s: I have also done a review about the gorgeous mascara by NARS, just incase you want to read it, check out the link below.

There you go.. Ta..Da…….

Try it for yourself and have fun! *wink wink*
