Carinn x Invisalign: ClinCheck (Treatment Plan) - Predicting the Future of My Teeth!

Hola! As promised, I am back with more updates on my teeth! This is like taking vanity and LOA to another level dy, but I think you'd wanna know how Invisalign works as well right? What more when I have discovered this uber cool psychic tool that predicts the future of my teeth! YES, REALLY! Video included as well so you'd know what I'm talking about ;) 

PS: If you haven't read my first consultation post, read it HERE!

So after about a month, my Clincheck aka Treatment Plan was finally ready! According to, Clincheck is a 3D virtual representation of all aspects of the anticipated treatment. It allows the orthodontist to evaluate final tooth positions, amount of individual tooth movement, rate of tooth movement and more! It's not only helpful to the Invisalign provider, but to the receiver as well as we are able to opt for any changes before starting the treatment to get the most desired results. For those who have asked, I now know exactly how long I'll have to wear my aligners for! *Btw, thanks Zoe for the photo!

Carinn x OOTD: Shift Stylin' ft. Dressabelle Malaysia

I'm finally back in action with another OOTD post! One of my biggest um, problems at work lately is finding work-appropriate outfits. My accumulated college and uni wardrobe has tons of shorts and crop tops *oops. My company promotes a fun work-environment but that doesn't mean I'm crazy enough to wear shorts to work! I still had to find something formal enough, per se, for work and yet still casual for a day out.

Cue Dressabelle Malaysia. Their philosophy is to apply Style, Affordability and Quality to all their designs - to combine quiet beauty with distinctive designs. What started off as an experiment by two friends who wanted to find a platform to share their personal style became a successful and well-known blogshop of 2 and a half years from Singapore. Many of my favourite fashion bloggers i.e Drea Chong, Melissa Koh & Christabel Chua have sported their outfits. I was contacted to be one of their ambassadors and I was super excited about it as I've been eyeing many of their pieces for a long time! Well, knowing that my size isn't easy to shop for is the reason why I've yet to purchase from them online. UNTIL I found out that they have a branch in Johor Bahru and their offline boutique is located not far from where I stay! Dressabelle has a wide range of work outfits that are far from frumpy or boring. Contemporary chic is what I would call their designs. Plus, they frequently launch new collections at great bargains to tempt girls like me!

Carinn x Invisalign: First Invisalign Consultation at Q&M Dental Surgery (Johor Bahru)

I'm here to talk about what went down at my first ever Invisalign consultation! I'm really a blessed girl. First I win the contest, which is totally unexpected (!!!), then I'm told that there is actually an orthodontist in JB who is willing to sponsor my treatment and on top of that has agreed to sponsor the whole process fully. Touched until can cry T.T

Girl Talk: Shiro Waki Hime Underarm Exfoliating, Peeling and Brightening Cream (White Princess)

I guess you could say that this is another post that calls for some discretion. From the photo and title, you should be able to tell that I am going to talk about something not commonly discussed.. The armpits. I have no idea why underarms are associated as something of a taboo to talk about though.

It's beach-season now and fellow wanderlusters are going to the beach. I myself have yet to shop for my beach outfit but I'm going to soon! Anyway, you'd want to dress in tank tops, singlets and bikinis at the beach right? But you don't have the courage to because of this problem - dark underarms. Even after shaving, you still don't feel confident enough to wear sleeveless clothes? If you Google "armpits" in the search engine, key words like "dark armpits" will come up as well. Seems like it's a pretty big issue with many women, especially women aged 30 and above. It's even said that if not treated right, it gets darker as the years go by!

Hair (HiShop Review Campaign): BAWANG Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo & Conditioner Professional Pack

Omg I can't believe I'm reviewing this. People are gonna think I'm balding XD Well, I'm sure many of you have heard of BAWANG Shampoo, endorsed by action superstar Jackie Chan. Just to be clear, I've actually used this brand a few years back to curb my oily scalp problem but after that, the product seemed to lose its hype and I didn't see it being sold at many places so I stopped using it. The reason I accepted the review was because I really believed this product works and I'd like to share it with you guys! I guess the target audience for this post would not be teenagers and youngsters XD

BAWANG (read this as Chinese pinyin, not 'onion' in Malay ok :p) is a well-known brand in China and gained popularity a few years back due to (I think) the pretty humorous ads starring Jackie Chan. Long story short, my dad used to use this shampoo too which is how I came to know it. The BAWANG Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo is formualted and manufactured by BAWANG International Scientific Research Centre, China's foremost centre for Trichology research to effectively address various hair fall causes. I've chosen the BAWANG Anti-Hair Fall Shampoo Professional Pack from Hishop to review as it is suitable for both men and women.

Beauty: Dual Yellow Laser - My Skin Gym Clinic & Medical Spa [Part 2]

Continuing where I left off, I'm gonna be talking about another treatment that I did at My Skin Gym Clinic & Medical Spa today. FYI, I did not one, but two laser treatments that same day so I've decided to split the post into two to give you a more comprehensive insight (in case you are doubtful just like I was before).

Beauty: Carbon Peel (Hollywood Laser Peel) - My Skin Gym Clinic & Medical Spa [Part 1]

I'm a big believer of trying anything at least once. Which is why I have decided to pluck up the courage and accept this cosmetic laser review! Okay, it wasn't really that scary but before I tried it, I obviously had some doubts about it from those horror stories I heard.

My Skin Gym Clinic & Medical Spa is one of the first aesthetic clinics to open in JB. The term 'medical spa' is pretty apt as you receive top of the line aesthetics treatment from certified doctors who have practiced this for years. It's pretty hard to miss this bright orange signboard as you drive along the crowded areas of Taman Sutera but I guess what is most eye-catching for most people is the fact that you can try out laser services for only RM29?!

Event: Clozette Malaysia Ambassadors & Star Clozetters Get-together K-Pop Party With Estēe Lauder

YASSS! I FINALLY got to attend an event in KL after so many MONTHS! I've missed doing this as there are not many events to attend in JB and it can get pretty mundane just doing product or food reviews all the time. Glad that I got the invite from Clozette just in time to attend their first-ever Clozette Malaysia Get-together Party! Just so happens that I was in KL that Friday for to meet my Invisalign sponsor and I decided to stay back another day to attend this fun event! So basically, the post will have more photos than words to show you guys what a great time I had at the K-pop Party :D
