Beauty/ Shopping: Sephora x Tarte Cosmetics Haul!

I'm basically obsessed with Sephora. I love to window shop in the stores, so much so that I think the BAs in the Johor Bahru branch knows me now because I go there practically every week. :P This year when Sephora Malaysia went online, I was elated.. but my wallet wasn't. Haha. Not many in-store brands are available online yet, but one of my favourite brand Tarte, is! Check out my recent Tarte Cosmetics haul, which I used to create this look!

Beauty: Result of Using The New Realash Cosmetics Eye Products [30-Day Challenge - Part 2]

A few weeks ago, I posted about my unboxing and first impression of REALASH Cosmetics' eye products namely, the Realash Eyelash Enhancer and Brow by Realash. Now it's time to share with you how I use it and the results. I have used the eyelash enhancer previously, so I was pretty confident about the results, looking forward to the brow enhancer's outcome though!

Beauty/ Shopping: Unboxing My August Hermo Haul!

It's no secret that I love shopping on Hermo Malaysia. I've been their loyal customer since 2013, and have watched them grow through their user-friendly website and top-notch customer service. One thing I love about Hermo is that they are constantly adding new brands and the latest item into their ever-expanding collection, which gives me a chance to try out more new products that aren't available anywhere in Malaysia!

Carinn x Invisalign: Aligners vs Retainers - What's the Difference?

Things have been real slow with my teeth aka Invisalign treatment lately.. Since I've been put on retainers (indefinitely), I am currently still awaiting news from the orthodontist and Invisalign Malaysia on the next step.. It's a really long story, but let's not go there for now. Ever since I started my treatment, I've had friends who are curious how my aligners look like. There are also friends who have worn braces who are curious what are the difference between aligners and retainers. Lemme try and break it down to you in this post!

From left: Eunice, me, Kim, Eryn
Yeap, this is going to be another Home & Living post, something I don't always talk about on my blog but feel it's necessary as I'm growing older and will be a homeowner soon (hopefully). My Ma Cherie girls and I were invited to attend the first ever press conference organised by TWC Concept to take a tour around their new showroom and learn more about their products. I must admit, it was really quite interesting!

Fashion: Things to Look For in a Modern Prom Dress Shop

Here are some tips on how to shop for a prom dress or formal wear for that special occassion!

Beauty: [MASK WEEK] Gobdigoun 곱디고운 Placenta Power Bio Cellulose Gel Mask & 24K Golden Cream

It's the final post for Mask Week on my blog, so let's end it with a bang! Once again, I got to try out these unique products, specially imported from Korea! I somehow find that my skin agrees more with Korean skincare most of the time, but lets see if this works just as well. What's unique about these Gobdigoun skincare is the fact that they have incorporated the goodness of sheep placenta into their products! Sounds gross, but it's actually an expensive beauty ingredient used in many luxury skincare!

Beauty: [MASK WEEK] My Secrets of Beauty Mask (MSB)

"Beauty does not require much effort, with little love and care, beauty never fades away". Totally agree with this statement, which is why I spend a lot of time on my skin. But with all the stress and external environmental factors (like HAZE which just came back today...), we need all the help we can get. I recently got my hands on this My Secrets of Beauty mask set and I will be attempting to do a 7-day mask challenge because I want to see if doing a facial mask everyday really helps to improve your skin as claimed. And yes, I should make a disclaimer that throughout this Mask Week, all the masks have been tried prior to this at different time intervals, hence the different condition of my skin from each review.

Beauty: [MASK WEEK] Ettang Modelling Take-Out Cup Pack

You must be wondering.. What am I doing here? Recently, these powder masks that turn into rubber modelling masks have been on the rise. I've found it quite intriguing and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Little did I realise, my beautician has been using this kinda mask on me during facials.. XD Which made me think that this would be so cool to try at home too, since they work so well in the salon!

Shopping: Time to Save Money with Groupon Coupons!

Let's be honest here. Who doesn't like to have that extra buck or two in your wallet? What if I told you that it's possible to fulfil your shopping needs, but still save money at the same time? Some of you may or may not know, but I am currently freelancing so every cent counts when it comes to saving money. Believe it or not, this is actually a trick that I learnt from my mother, an avid Groupon user! She uses this coupons-saving site all the time to buy dining vouchers or merchandises, and I've picked up on this skill to help me save some money while enjoying life!

But I'm back now, you can expect more posts from me regularly! :) Well, let's talk about something that everyone loves - FOOD!

It's going to be big. REALLY big - unlike anything that you've ever seen before. Don't know what I'm talking about? I'm sure you have heard about Spritzer Slide the City that made its smashing debut in Putrajaya last year.

But good news!! Following the overwhelming response in Melaka and Kuantan, Slide the City is now COMING TO JOHOR!

First off, hearty congratulations to Philips Malaysia are in order for the official launch of the very first Philips Brand Store in Johor, and it also happens to be their 2nd store in Malaysia! According to a report by Nielsen, the most successful retailers and manufacturers use the best elements of a physical store combined with a strong digital presence to deliver seamless customer experiences, and Philips seems to be doing just that. I was invited to pay a visit to the store in Sutera Mall to check out the array of products available.

Well, Bright Culture, one of the leading tuition centres in Singapore has something different to bring to the table and hopefully, it'll help you young readers who are reading my blog!
