Original Source,Lush&baking moulds from Melkandshegetz

Original Source & Lush King of Skin
Previously I did a blogpost on the awesome stuffs that I got from Melkandshegetz.About more than a month ago I received my stuffs that I ordered from them from the UK!Yes,they can actually source stuffs for you from UK/US!Your own personal shopper.How cool and convenient is that?

Back in February,when I went to Bali,I bought this awesome smelling bodywash from this brand called Original Source from their pharmacy.It was Vanilla and Raspberry and it smells like ice cream/chupa chups lollipop!I love it.But sadly it wasn't sold in Malaysia :(

I was happy though when I found out that Melkandshegetz are selling them.And they have such a big variety of the bodywash.I got 8 different ones and I love all of them to bits.In case you're wondering..of course I didn't use all of them..I gave some to my mum & brother as well.

The ones that I super love other than the Vanilla and Raspberry was the Pink Grapefruit,Lime and Coconut.I love to bathe in citrus scents in the morning because it wakes me up!Coconut is more rich and creamy..perfect to pamper yourself at night.Yes,I love bathing!If only there's a bathtub in my bathroom..it'd be perfect!

Not only does the bodywash smells amazing..they're moisturizing for your skin and is a vegan product too!

I heard about Lush King of Skin from Tanya Burr's Youtube channel were she constantly raves about it.It's basically a body butter bar that you can use to moisturize your body with.Because my King of Skin was shipped to Malaysia..it became a little bit disfigured due to the heat.haha.No worries though as I was still able to use it.

I loved how super moisturizing it was..although it was a bar,when I swiped it on my skin..it instantly melted due to body heat and made my skin so soft.Super cool!A little bit goes a longgg way.

According to Lush's website on King of Skin:

King of Skin is a solid body lotion to make your dry skin softer, smoother, and more flexible. Supremely moisturizing freshly mashed bananas and avocados are whipped into a luxurious, skin soothing base of oat milk and lavender. You’ll immediately notice the softening effect these natural ingredients have on the skin; and the best part is the effects last all day! Smooth onto wet skin just out of the shower, towel off – and you’re left with royally soft skin

Canele and cakepops mould
As you all know,I love to bake and I actually accept baking orders from a friend's cafe and customers during my free time.I have eaten quite a few caneles but have never found the mould being sold here..and believe me I've search quite a lot of baking supply stores.But luckily they're available in the UK.I wanted a cakepops mould as well so it'll be easier for me if I ever wanted to bake them.

I haven't had the time to use bouth moulds yet.There's always constant baking orders every week so I've not time to experiment with new recipes.Hopefully I'll get to use them soon :)

More Bourjois haul+nude lipsticks fave.

If you guys remembered,I did a blogpost on my Bourjois haul..I went to their store on the second day that they opened in Sunway Pyramid.And a few weeks back,I bought more stuffs from them.I can honestly say that I loveeee their stuffs..except for their liquid eyeliners haha.


So some of the items that I bought from Bourjois recently was....

1)Healthy Balance unifying powder in the shade 53 Beige Clair

I love this powder as it kept my face matte for quite a long period of time.The fact that the compact is very thin makes it easy to carry in my purse.

2)Blusher in shade 54 Rose Frisson

My Sephora Artist's blusher broke so I needed a replacement for it.After swatching some shades on my cheek I settle for this pretty rosy colour.I love how it wasn't too shimmery or shiny.It gives you a naturally rosy flush.The cute packaging is a bonus as well!

3)Happy Light Matte Base Serum

I bought this face primer as I needed one for my engagement day.Yes,I did my makeup on my own.I love how it felt on my skin..very smooth and my face stayed matte throughout the day.I would definitely repurchase this.

4)Rouge Edition lipstick in Brun Boheme

I love this lipstick..as you can see down below,I also made a tiny section about my current nude lip product.It's not totally nude because I didn't want to look wash out.My face is pretty pale so if I wear a nude lipstick that doesn't have a hint of colour in it,I'll look dead.

This one has such a beautiful colour.I guess it depends on your blood as well?Sometimes the same lipstick shade can look totally different on another person.Hence why I'd spend like..30 minutes trying in various lipstick shades to get the right one and I never shop for them online.



L:Brun Boheme R:Rosewine
Brun Boheme looks like a nude lipstick with a hint of pink on my lips.I love the texture and the shape of the lipstick..it makes it sooo easy to apply.This is my second tube of Rouge Edition lipstick..previously I bought a red one.
Wearing brun boheme
I also couldn't resist buying Revlon's Super Lustrous lipstick in the shade of Rosewine.It's a nude colour with coral/red in it.It's brighter than Brun Boheme but just as beautiful.It is so smooth on my lips and I just love wearing it.
Top:Brun Boheme,Bottom:Rosewine
Wearing rosewine
As you can see from the picture above,Rosewine is a lot more coral-ly/red than Brun Boheme.And clearly I wore the same top but during different weeks.hahaha.

I would definitely recommend you girls out there to try out Bourjois's beauty products and of course..Revlon's Super Lustrous lipstick line.Nowadays,I always feel lazy to do my makeup in the morning..but the only thing I'd put on is some lipstick.It will brighten up your look!

Brunch:Nutmeg(Bangsar) and Quartet(TTDI).

Lately I've been going for brunch with Aimi during the weekends.So here's my sorta review of the two places that we had our brunch at during the recent weekends.

NUTMEG(Bangsar)

Aimi couldn't make it to my engagement ceremony due to work so she told me that she'll bring me out to eat.I chose brunch so it's not too early/late for me as my house is a pretty far drive to anywhere.haha Aimi wanted to go to Bangsar so I googled places to have brunch at.Nutmeg reviews were very good from various bloggers.
Eggs Benedict

I'm glad I choose Nutmeg as the food was good.We went here around 12pm and it was almost packed!The only downside was that the tables were too close together.Like the gap between our table and the next was pretty close so they could hear us when we talk.
Big Breakfast

Moving on to the food!Aimi ordered the Nutmeg Big Breakfast while I had the Eggs Benedict.

Aimi's dish came with two eggs of any style(she chose scrambled),lamb sausage,confit mushrooms,roasted garlic tomatoes,hash potatoes or fried mac&cheese(she chose the latter),house cured salmon or salted beef(she chose the former) and toasted brioche!

I had a choice of house cured salmon or salted beef for my eggs benedict and I chose the beef..which I regret later because it was tough.We shared a pot of Rooibos Creme Caramel tea.When it arrived,I was surprised to see that it was from Teapigs which is well known in the UK.
Tea!

My eggs was perfectly poached and it was yummy.Service was slow though as Aimi's dish arrived wayyyy later after mine.But hers was yummy as well.I tried the fried mac and cheese & it was good!I've to admit the price is on the slightly high side of things.A good place to have brunch once a month or every two months?haha

QUARTET(Ttdi)


Aimi asked me for brunch at TTDI and I as usual googled the places and it was down to Quartet or The Frisky Goat.We ended up choosing Quartet.

The ambiance of Quartet was very romantic.The inside was quite dark,considering that it was only 1pm.Quartet's concept was that you have to order at the counter and pay as well before the food was sent to you.
Mmm yummm!(RM21)

We ordered the same thing which was the Big Breaky.It was very yummy!The toast that came with it was perfectly toasted.I hate a soggy and non-toasted bread.But the downside was that,one of the eggs was poached for too long that the yolk inside became a bit hard.I ordered their iced tea of the day..which was earl grey & was not sweetened--perfect!

I would definitely come back to Quartet again and try their creme brulee next :p

MNG Malaysia for Zalora.

I'm sure a lot of you girls/guys out there have heard about MANGO/MNG before.It's either you've bought some of their stuffs or have been inside their store.I personally love their array of blazers and I have bought quite a few of them.They fit me well,I love the cut,the style and the material..list goes on.

But not everyone lives near a mall that has MNG/Mango store in them.And now since everybody shops online,I'm happy to announce that you can now buy stuffs from MNG Malaysia via Zalora's website!How cool is that?

They've got a lot of great stuffs from MNG on Zalora.Here I'm sharing with you three different casual looks that you can achieve using the various pieces from MNG.

Casual wear is important to everyone as it is the clothes we wear on a relaxing day out during the weekends,or if you're like me..my line of work allows me to dress casually for it..which I love.Casual wear not only portrays a clean simple look but also it's comfortable to wear.

With Mango,you can mix match the clothes and turn it into something amazing while walking with confidence all around town.There are 3 looks from MNG which you can opt for to have that simple yet stylish appearance.

The high school look


Remember the time when you were in high school and all you want to wear is comfortable trendy looking outfits consisting of shorts, basic tee or an oversized sweater. You could also attempt this look by mix matching the clothes from Mango and select the pieces which suit your personality.  The ladies who just love wearing simple yet stylish casual wear can pair an oversized sweater and coloured denim shorts from the brand with a nice pair of Converse shoes for a perfect younger look. Hang out at the malls with your girlfriends or have a picnic at the park looking casual in style.


The smart-casual

Women who want to have a more sophisticated appearance while still maintaining a casual look should definitely opt for Mango’s long sleeved knit sweater and sleek long pants. This look is suitable for women to even wear it to parties or work without looking inappropriate. Top it up a notch with a pair of high heels and accessorize it with a pendant necklace or fedora hat and look stunning everywhere you go.


The outerwear look



This look is perfect for the women who want to step out of house feeling comfortable and super feminine at the same time.It's my favorite look as I love wearing blazers to work on top of dresses to make me look more put together.

Outerwear always perks up an outfit with the simplest touch without ever looking out of place. Pair it with a bright coloured blouse and shorts from Mango for a fabulous look all day long or if you're me,there's a wide array of beautiful dresses which you can pair with your outerwear.
