Floral & Beads

January 29, 2013

Hi, everyone!
I think it's been too long since the last I updated a post in the Fashion section. My apologies!
Recently, I attended the launch of Za's Spring/Summer 2013 collection and introduction of the new face of Za, Miss Amanda Imani. Congratulations!

Here's what I wore to the event.

My super heavy beaded tops is from FLOW (one of my favourite plus size stores!). This is probably one of my greatest investments for top because it works for both day and night event. You don't need to wear a necklace because the beads are huge and colourful! You could match it with a huge dangling earrings and a short skirt for a night out at the club, etc. This event was during the day, so I just put on a a pair of small earrings and more of a casual style.

The floral leggings is from Cotton On. The material is spandex..you know those that you wear for swimming. haha. I adore this leggings because you can match it with a simple plain top, a good pair of pumps, and you're good to go! And did I mention that it is SUPER COMFORTABLE? I really felt like I didn't put any pants on! ha!

I completed my outfit with a baby blue clutch that is perfected with diamonds. I got this from a Factory Outlet in Bandung, called Rumah Mode. Cheap stuff there for AMAZING evening bags! I died.

Lastly, not forgetting my hands; one of my favourite watches from Guess (wait, I only have two watches! Be prepared for upcoming posts with the same watch. hehe), and a butterfly ring which I got from a bazaar at The Curve.

I could say that this look is neither too heavy, nor simple. The floral leggings and beaded tops really give me the pop of colours and bling blings. Sometimes when you go to a day event, you don't want to look too overly done, but you still want to look glamorous. I hope this look will help you in any way. :)

Thanks for reading! Have a good day ahead :)

Yes, saya sangat hairy. :(


The Launch of The Luxurious Bulgaria Rose Skin Care by SHILLS

January 26, 2013

Hi everyone! Sorry for the long absence. I've been moving things from my old condo to my new home (not so new though!) because finally, my family is selling it after years of holding on to it. I was also in Sydney last week with family. What an awesome way to start the year! Thanks mom & dad :)

Anyway, earlier this month, Joanna invited me to the new product launching by SHILLS, which is The Luxurious Bulgaria Rose Skin Care. It was a successful and fun launch held at the Garden Cafe, Midvalley. The dresscode was pink and/or white!

Note: This was my unlucky day. I guess I haven't got unlucky days in awhile. My hair was crazy frizzy and my camera died at the event, so my pictures are limited and had to steal some from Joanna. Thanks and sorry, Joanna! hehe

The event started off with a performance of Latin dancing by talented young girls. Sorry I coudn't get a shot because I was standing at the back.

Founded in 2009 by Shills Beauty Sdn Bhd, SHILLS is one of Taiwan's well known skincare and cosmetic brands which have gained popularity and liking across Asia, especially Malaysia and Singapore. Shills Beauty Sdn Bhd is the sole distributor of SHILLS, ANOSA and DOT.DOT.

I was really excited for this event because I LOVE LOVE roses! I just love the sweet scent of roses that is calming, soothing, and also romantic :) Ummmmhhh...

The emcee introduced Ms Eva who was going to do a product demonstration, and explaining the new skincare range in details. 

The Damascus Rose is marked for its super fine fragrance and often used in making perfumery and rose water. This rose species is found in the Valley of Roses at Bulgaria Mountain.

Did you know that the roses can only be retrieved by hand, and you need 4000kg of fresh rose petals to extract 1kg of rose essential oil? Whoa, now that's a lot of roses!


 "To preserve the natural rose otto, SHILLS determined not to add any chemicals and artificial during the distillation of rose essential oil from rose petals".

Posh! Nail Spa Launch Party @SS2

January 06, 2013

Earlier last month, I attended the launch party of my favourite mani-pedi spa, Posh! Nail Spa (click HERE for my review of the spa). It was the launching of their second outlet located in SS2.  

The moment I stepped in, it was everything how I want my bridal shower/bachelorette party (If im EVER going to have one!) to be. Purple and pink everywhere. So chic and girly. I like! I shall take note!

Posh! Nail Spa is more than your average nail spa. It provides other beauty services such as facial, waxing, and eyelash extension.

What's a nail spa party without pampering session, right? The highlight of the event was definitely the mani session. Guests were entitled to have a quick manicure for FREE!! But while waiting for my turn, my eyes were glued to the food table. It was lunchtime and I haven't had my lunch. ATTACK! Mini cupcakes and many types of pastries were served for the tummy :)

I invited my friends who are fellow bloggers too, Joanna and Haneesa because I know they love beauty and pampering events like this. Joanna is a beauty&lifestyle blogger and Haneesa's blog focuses on travelling and she is also a contributor at The Awesome Project.  Check them out, yea!

 Soon it was our turn for the quick manicure session! Yippee!

 I opted for a soft baby pink for nails. You know I can't resist pink! What do you think? This colour reminds me of cotton candy.

Besides manicure, they had lucky draws and quizzes that really excite the guests because they were giving out many fun prizes. I think everyone went home with goodies in their hands. That was very nice of Posh!

On that note, I guess it was my lucky day. I won a prize from the lucky draw! A water tumbler from Polar Bear. It's BPA free plastic water bottle that keeps your drink cold even on a super hot day.

After getting our nails done, we hung around to explore the spa, and I found these!
One of my favourite collections from O.P.I. that I still haven't got my hands on yet!

 The SkyFall collection!

Posh! is also selling O.P.I's Pink of Hearts 2012 in support of Breast Cancer Awareness.

The gorgeous Belinda Chee who was the host of the event and a regular customer of Posh! as well :) I realized my outfit suit the colour theme. Another lucky point.

With the owner of Posh! Nail Spa, Sereen Ng, whose husband happened to be Haneesa's ex-boss when she worked in an art center last year. Small world!

It was a successful launch eventhough it was not big, but more to a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. Since we RSVP early, we got ourselves some goodie bags containing vouchers of their services and other brands, a nail file, body lotion from O.P.I. and a BB cream from Maybelline which I use on a daily basis. Yay!

CONGRATULATIONS Posh! Nail Spa on the opening of your second outlet. All the best!

They are located at :
Posh! Nail Spa @ SS2
23, Jalan SS2/30,
47300, PJ.
