Carinn x Invisalign: Attaching the Attachments

Hey Malaysia, Selamat Hari Merdeka! Despite everything, I  my country.
I know, photo is irrelevant but how about a short read on the recent developments of my teeth? ;) If you look closely, you can actually see a tiny difference in my teeth, something added to mark another milestone in my Invisalign journey. I've had attachments added to my upper row of teeth. I know  you've seen me mention this a few times and you must be wondering, what are attachments?

Eats & Treats: One63 European Bistro & Bar Johor Bahru

It's hard to find a good Western dining place in Johor Bahru, even more so if it's fine dining. Luckily, we are introduced to One63 European Bar & Bistro in Jalan Ngee Heng, in JB Downstown. They are a juxtaposition of old & new - a modern restaurant set in an old shoplot. Don't you just love the Victorian era exterior? Well, One63 may be relatively new (started less than 2 years ago), but they are definitely making waves in the dining scene in JB!

Carinn x OOTD: Summer in Blue ft. Woopz Bikinis & Beachwear

*shy* I hesitated for a long time before deciding to post these up. Anyway, it's good to step out of my comfort zone once in awhile. Also, it's been awhile since my last Carinn x OOTD post. I'll definitely try and be more hardworking with my fashion posts from now on! Here's a mini sneak peek of some photos from my Phuket trip. Since it's summer all-year round in Malaysia, you girls will definitely want to check Woopz Bikinis out!

Beauty: Too Cool For School Milk Tint

After the recent hype and changes in my life, it's time to settle down for a bit. It seems like it's been a while since my last makeup post, so here's one! Candy & makeup - seems like the best combination ever to me! Can you believe that for a makeup junkie like me, this is the first time I'm using a lip & cheek tint?

[Guest Post] Maximising Your Closet Space

I admit, I'm not the neatest person ever. Somehow my room is always in a messy state, partly because of the lack of space as well (I'm sharing a room with my sister). So when my guest bloggers Kelsey Reeves & Danielle Hegedus offered to do a writeup on maximising closet space, I'm all game for it!

A well-organized closet is one of life’s simplest pleasures. A good organization system allows you to easily see all of your clothing, shoes, and accessories to quickly and adeptly put together outfits that make you feel confident no matter what the occasion. Maximizing your closet space does take some work, but it’s well worth the time and effort.

Beauty: Olecule Skin Bionics - B5 Moist & Barrier Repair

Starting August a little slowly, not much posts yet so far. But I'm working on it! Let's talk about skincare and specifically, serums, today. I received these adorable Olecule Skin Bionics miniatures to try out and they are specifically targeted for my skin type which is dry + sensitive. I've also problems of clogged pores and acne.  It is nice of Olecule to check my blog for my skin type first before choosing suitable products for my skin.

Carinn x Invisalign: 2 Weeks After Invisalign

Noticed anything different about my blog? Yes, I've a new blog design now and I'm sooo psyched about it! I promised big plans on my blog, will be rolling them out within this month so watch this space! ;) Admittedly, my new layout is still a work in progress, and I'll get cracking soon! In the meantime, BIG BIG THANK YOU to my blog designer, Kharnyee for her patience and design! You guys, please do contact her if you ever need someone to design your blog layout k :p

Will be talking more about that soon. Just sit back and admire my new blog layout for now :p I'm going to talk about my teeth again (teehee). Ever since I posted about putting on my aligners (READ HERE), I've received many messages and questions about how it feels like to wear them. I just started wearing my 3rd pair of aligners three days ago and I feel somewhat qualified to answer your questions about how life has been after "officially" starting my Invisalign treatment.

Travel: 5 Places to Go and Food to Eat in Penang [Traveloka]

Travel.. Who doesn't love it? The past 3 weeks, I've been to Phuket, Desaru and will be heading to Malacca tomorrow. Now that I've hopped on board the wanderlust train, it's hard to stop. So while planning for my next trip, I've prepared a list for your reference too on where to go & what to do in Pulau Pinang, the island of Malaysia's pride & joy and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Now, I've been to Penang twice before so I'm no stranger there. But I really wouldn't mind going back there again because of the rich history and not forgetting, the YUMMY FOOD!! It's true that Malaysians practically live to eat. Penang culture and food is heavily influenced by Baba & Nyonya heritage which is what makes it so unique. I've curated a list of places to visit when in Penang and food to savour, based on my travels there a few years ago. Much have changed since then and I'm really hoping to go back there again.
