Beauty: Belif Christmas Moisture World Gift Set

It's been a while since my last skincare review, huh? One of the brands I've always wanted to try was Belif, a true herbal cosmetics brand known for their moisturising range. Butterfly Project Malaysia made my Christmas wish come true by sending me this Belif Christmas Gift set which consists of 4-pcs of skincare items just before I flew off for my Europe trip! Well, I only got to try it when I came back so it did take some time, but I'm happy to report back to you all with a full review now!

Beauty: Vella Cosmetics Ultra Hydro Sun Essence SPF 50/PA+++ (Aqua Mineral Solution)

What's the ONE thing you never leave home without? For me, it could be a few essential beauty products, but most importantly, I MUST PUT ON SUNSCREEN! You see, my mum, gramma and aunts all have a history of pigmentation and idk why I've been so scared to get pigmentation too, so I always tell myself I better take precaution and do some sun protection while my skin is still young hahaha. I'm always game to try out new sunblock brands, but because I cannot stand the stickiness and white cast of regular sunblock, water-based sunblock are what I'm on the lookout for most of the time! And this Vella Ultra Hydro Sun Essence fits the bill!

Carinn x Invisalign: Invisalign Open Day 2017 @ White Dental Cosmetic Centre, Sri Petaling

If you've been following my posts, you'll know that I've recently attended the Invisalign Open Day event at White Dental Cosmetic Centre, Sri Petaling 2 weeks back. It's a day where interested patients can drop by the clinic and find out more about Invisalign treatment. On top of that, you get free consultation, free X-ray and photo-taking, a goodie bag and the best part of all.. Special promo price on Invisalign packages on this day! A few friends have come up to me after the Open Day and told me they regretted not attending cos they would've loved to check out the special prices too. Told y'all I only share the good stuff :p Anyway, basically this was what went down at the event the other day!

Beauty: Trying Out SEP Masks from Korea

It's summer, the perfect time to immerse ourselves in nature. For beauty lovers, another alternative instead of being outdoors all day, is to immerse ourselves in beauty products made with ingredients from nature instead. :p I love trying out new beauty products, so I was seriously stoked when I was chosen by The Butterfly Project Malaysia to test out SEP Korea Masks! SEP is one of Korea's leading beauty brand, so I had high hopes for these.

Health/ Beauty: Natural Plants & Fruits Supplements (Keep your whole family healthy!)

One of my resolutions this 2nd half of the year is to be healthier. I've recently started going swimming weekly to train my stamina (because honestly, swimming is the only sport that I like - besides shopping HAHAHA). While keeping up with my 3 jobs, family commitments, social life, dating life, exercise and such, I admit that I don't always have time for proper meals. Thankfully, there's a way around it! Natural Plants & Fruits Supplements is my alternative to getting my dose of energy as I go about my daily routine. While reviewing these products, I also found that each product would suit a different friend or family, and I'll be revealing which you should get as a gift option for your loved ones :)

Beauty: Picnic Day Makeup Look and Review ft. 1028 Visual Therapy

It's been awhile since I've done a one-brand makeup look on my blog. I realised another thing though, and it's that I rarely talk about Taiwanese makeup brands on my blog. Well, I'm thrilled to share that recently, I was introduced to 1028 Visual Therapy from Taiwan and I'm impressed! This cosmetic brand is also known as 'Skincare Cosmetics' which means that it cares for your skin while you have cosmetic on. Now that's what I call killing two birds with one stone!

Lifestyle: Traditional Thai Massage @ Thai Odyssey Holiday Villa, JB

Raise your hands if you love massages! Unfortunately, I’m not one of those people. >< I’m very skinny and most massages hurt me haha. So when I was approached by Thai Odyssey, I thought of inviting my parents to experience their Thai massage on my behalf instead. Coincidentally, it was my parents’ 26th anniversary as well, so the massages couldn’t have come at a better time!

[Guest Post] Understanding What Drives Real Estate Prices

When you think about the ability to secure a given piece of property in the real estate world, there are obviously some factors that must first be considered. After all, if home prices were only based upon what the building materials cost to make, then almost every home would have exact pricing and there would be no real estate speculation. Therefore, because of the fact that you know multiple things drive prices, then you also know you should be aware of the top price drivers for a given new launched condominium in Malaysia and perhaps any other places in the world. Pay attention to the following so you are prepared to look into the specifics of real estate price drivers for your next purchase.
