Hello Beautiful

My name is Tammy and I've been blogging for over 8 years now. I started blogging because I wanted to share my beauty hauls and lifestyle experiences. I'm also a pro-consumer, which is probably the fire in my life.

This blog is now happily written by the cutest couple you've ever seen. Gareth's Irish while I'm Malaysian. We met in the most unexpected way possible and since then have been in a loving relationship. He loves to eat, drink and try new exciting things (even extreme sports) while I love the quieter things in life, like spas, massages, shopping and beauty! But we have something in common, we both love travelling.

Esmeria Organics: Certified Organic Skincare That Keeps It Real

do your body care products on a holiday too?

Last month I finally muster up the courage to pay for a luxury spa retreat in Ipoh. Of all places Ipoh you asked? Yes Ipoh, why? because of the wonderful hot spring spots I have been hearing about. Thanks to The Star Newspaper, I found out about this wellness escape in Ipoh that offers geothermal hot spring facilities, even at the privacy of your own villa. This place called The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat also strives to be Eco-friendly and maintains the lush green beauty around the hot springs. One of my favorite packing for holiday activity is to pack my body care products! guess which one came up in my mind? ESMERIA ORGANICS!

Villa Samadhi Kuala Lumpur's Ultimate Treat to Nest In

2.26.2011

Villa Samadhi is next on my list to stays

After coming back from the Mas Traveler's Blogger's Party at the beautiful Neo Tamarind (Tamarind Hill) at Jalan Sultan Ismail (next to Wisma KFC) I picked up a brochure of what seems to be a beautiful beach like resort but on further reading it, it's not a beach resort but it's a retreat in the city of Kuala Lumpur itself! *gosh*. The photos looks amazing, a place to unwind, relax and get back your spirits, Villa Samadhi would be perfect place to just check out from your office and check in minutes later. I suspect it would also be luxuriously priced! Their tag line:
"Rekindle Your Spirit At Villa Samadhi, In Absolute Russet Harmony. And in the still of the urban drone, reinstate the rhythm of life in the wake of a complete dream state".
oh lord...

oh my god...

I want to come here!!!

Oh yes baby, you got me at hello. Wish I could come here real soon to unwind. I wonder when :(

Information about Villa Samadhi:

Villa Samadhi is best described as an intimate urban retreat; KL’s ultimate ‘treat to nest in’. This chic villa-in-a-room concept offers a trendy collection of contemporary Asian-inspired rooms, each spanning from 600 square-foot to over 2000 square-foot of living spaces.
The 21 polished-concrete private rooms are fitted with refined salvaged- timber floors and interior, plush beds, over-sized plunge tubs, romantic balconies, furnished with tech-amenities. While some ‘villas’ are fully-equipped with modern kitchens and private gardens, ground-floor rooms are with room-to-water access to the ‘lagoon’.
Bumbung, (the layered roof structure in the pic) the laid-back rustic rooftop tea lounge is premeditated for chill-out sundowns amid KL’s urban drone. Housed within a quiet, upscale residential locale just minutes away from KL city centre, Villa Samadhi is a dream state.

Avene Sensitive White Press Launch and My Testimonial

2.20.2011



Some time back I had the chance to try out Sensitive White, the 1st whitening program with Avène Thermal Spring Water for Sensitive Skin. I did a couple of reviews with it and used the product for 5 months. In the end, I submitted a testimonial to OnlyBeauty.Com.My a beauty portal where they have activities like sampling programs, contests and a forum where members share reviews and testimonials (check the site for more activities). The good news was that my testimonial was selected by OnlyBeauty.Com.My and I was invited to attend the Sensitive White Press Launch on 23rd Nov, 2010 at Fullhouse Cafe, Sunway Giza Mall Kota Damansara.


Avene Sensitive White Press Launch


the latest products from Avene

Avene Sensitive White speakers

The media were invited to witness the launch of the Avene Sensitive White where the speakers Dr. Didier Guerrero (Dermatologist and Medical Advisor of Pierre Fabre Laboratories) and Ms. Anais Paranthoen, International Trainer of Pierre Fabre (Asia Pacific) introduced and explain the science of the whitening program and the range. I met some editors from magazines, online sites, newspapers and organizers at this event. They were friendly!

my testimonial using Avene Sensitive White

the media trying out the products

I admit it was pretty scary standing in front of everyone giving my 2 cents on choosing the right whitening products for sensitive skin. Everyone was watching and I had public speaking fear! But I push myself and told them what I think about Avene Sensitive White and how it has improved my skin. I don't remember the full testimonial but it goes something like this:

my testimony using Avene Sensitive White

"I was a really bad girl, not using sun protection when I go out so sooner or later pigmentations started to  pop out. I wanted to do something about it so I came upon this website called Only Beauty and signed up to try the Avene Sensitive White program. I have sensitive skin, it's not that severe but whitening products normally cause irritation to my skin especially my cheeks area so I wanted to try Avene's Sensitive White and see if the same happens. Lucky for me, I was chosen and I tried the products for 5 months. It didn't sting or cause irritation to my face. In fact it's gentle and has helped improved my complexion and when I went for my regular facial, my beauty therapist said what happened to me? my pigmentations has reduced!" - I was so happy to hear that!

sun protection is important!!!

SO for those who has sensitive skin and is looking to improve their dull/dark complexion or reduce pigmentation/brown spots you can try the Avene Sensitive White range. Sensitive doesn't mean it's just  for sensitive skin, it means that its gentle enough for anyone (which is really good for sensitive skin). This range comes in three products - Whitening Lotion, Whitening Serum and Whitening Emulsion. They can be found in selected pharmacies and shops. Since it's gentle, don't expect immediate or miracle transformation. You can read about the OnlyBeauty.Com.My & Avene Sensitive White campaign here and a brief introduction about the range and the products. It takes dedication to maintain a whitening regime couple with a good sun protection product. You can try the Avene's Very High Protection Emulsion SPF50+. 


To join review & sampling programs go to OnlyBeauty.Com.My. I would like to thank them & Avene for giving me the opportunity to try the Sensitive White range. A fun program to join and I'm happy the results was a good one but don't take my word for it, try it for yourself as results varies from one person to another. Mine was great.

Max Factor Make-up Demonstration by Winnie Loo

2.18.2011


the make-up of make-up artists

False Lash Effect Mascara a must try

The only thing I know about Max Factor is the awesome mascara that vowed me. It was like no other mascara I have ever seen. The easy to use mascara lengthens in one coat and after two it looks like you have put on a false eyelash! No wonder it's called the "False Lash Effect Mascara" I said to myself when I first witnessed it on Fatin at the Max Factor counter in Lot 10. Surely it would be loved by everyone? it's ranked as the top selling mascara in the global market! what do you think? have you tried it yet?

Winnie Loo shows her magic with Max Factor


live make-up demo from day to night look

Well the False Lash Effect Mascara isn't the only thing that Max Factor has to offer as I stared intensively at Winnie Loo's skillful hands magically turning the model into a meooowwww hot panther! It was a working day on 17th December, 2010 but I managed to apply leave just to come see Winnie Loo in action (fuh!!!).

Winnie Loo using the False Lash Effect Mascara

ready to party girls!

Dubbed the make-up of make-up artist, Max Factor was recently launched in Malaysia (a brand of Procter & Gamble, distributed locally by StarAsia Malaysia) and has many women raving about the mascara that I just mention! And yes Winnie Loo is the selected make-up artist for Max Factor!!! Who don't know Winnie Loo right? she's like a household name now. The Chief Creative Director of A Cut Above shares her make-up tips with us in a live demo on a pretty model. She shows us that with a few easy strokes, brushes & shadows from the existing Max Factor range top with the magic "False Lash Effect Mascara" wand any girl could turn into a Cinderella with eyes ready to kill the prince at midnight! Forget the glass shoe honey, just leave that mascara behind as evidence.

the crowd at the live make-up demo

After the make-up demo, there was a special promotion just for us that day with lucky draws to be won too! I bought the RM88 set consisting of a False Lash Effect Mascara & Lifinity Color & Gloss (I swear the swatch on my hand lasted a week even after showering and washing!) it comes with a cute small pouch studded with bling-blings (Kaviar Gauche Bag). This would normally cost RM139 so I had a good deal. I bought this for a dear friend's Christmas wish list, she really wanted to try the mascara after hearing me raving about it. 

my Max Factor Loyalty Card

Also don't forget to get your Max Factor loyalty stamp card! you get to collect stamps from shopping at Max Factor and with every level achieved, you get a free makeover! and once you reach to the bottom (last stamp) you get Max Factor products worth RM200! to find out more info about this, please ask your Max Factor Make-up Artist. I recommend trying the waterproof False Lash Effect in Black RM66 (also comes in Black-Brown and in regular shades Black & Deep Blue).

I celebrated my 10th Valentine at Avillion Port Dickson

It was a fun, relaxing and romantic trip down Port Dickson. It's the first time me & my bf for Port Dickson and we stayed at the luxurious Avillion Port Dickson. Apart from the bad service (only got our rooms at 4.35pm after waiting from 1.30pm & failure to call us after assuring with me they will many times) we still manage to make our 3D2N getaway fun by ourselves. Happy Valentine's Day everyone, muaks.

Lerbolario Beauty Secrets: Another Body Care Addict's Shop

2.06.2011

get ready to be pampered with all kinds of scents here!

My Christmas shopping list had L'erbolario written on it! I bought shower gels, massage oils and even swapped with Nicole for the sun block. L'erbolario is the latest body & skincare shop to hit our town. Officially launched on 8th December, 2010 at the ground floors of Bangsar Shopping Center, the shop has in fact opened it's door a few days earlier and started selling their products and becoming popular with ladies in the Klang Valley. I received an invitation to attend the launch from their operation manager but being shy & timid as usual, I asked if I could bring my colleagues with me. By this I meant shopaholic blogging comrades who love body care products as much as me! words spread by us would be like virus if we stumble upon gold.

An Intimate Affair with Xixili & Wevents

2.04.2011

 the Desire Series organized by WEVents
(Women Only Men Not Invited Event)

An interesting tale I shall share about the Wevents's event called "An Intimate Affair" (the fourth and final installment of the Desires Series) held at Itallianies Restaurant, The Gardens Mid Valley last week. As usual so far I have only been a spectator of such events, snapping away photos, chatting up with girls, having "kodak moments" with my good friends. However this time it's different. Why different? because this time, I am actually the one peering out from my table and looking at everyone. 

tadaah! I'm a volunteer this time!

Yeap you bet your pink toenails that I volunteered myself to help WEVents committee and guess what I was put in charge of? my all time favorite activity in an event, "GOODIE BAGS"! instead of receiving this time I am actually giving the goodie bags to everyone who registered for the event! (awesome I get to peep at what's in the goodie bag before everyone else!).  My friends were surprised that I didn't tell them I was not joining them as a participant but actually greeting them one by one when they arrive. It was a really cool experience! I love it.

xixili goodie bags for everyone

pick an apple to reveal what WEVents think about u

My job was to welcome the ladies and give them their goodie bag after they registered and got their name tags stickers. I'll then ask them to pick an apple from the basket! This just reminds me of Desperate Housewives TV Drama where they use red apples to show passion. Under each apple there's a sticker which says what WEVents think about them. It can be pretty, sassy, brave etc. Since Valentine's Day and Lingerie do give a meaning for this event, everyone gets a red rose too! 

the yummy finger food

pizza yummy pizza

friends Yvonne, Elle, Fatin, Stacey & Camie

the speakers & Xixili Owner Joanne!

It was pretty fun being a volunteer that night, I had a great view from my table overlooking the entire event. I saw ladies getting excited with the model showing off the Xixili's latest collection, which is perfect for Chinese New Year & Valentine's Day! especially the garter type garments, really cool and tomboy sexy in a way for me. I can't show you the photos here to respect the model. The place was strictly guarded from letting outsiders peering into our event area. There's curtains and bodyguards there! (kudos to Aileen and the rest for guarding heavily).

what's the ideal fruit shape? orange

bras can help you according to type

yes that's very important, it's your assets!

Anyway I manage to learn a thing or two while I was busy guarding my table. How to keep your assets in good shape, how to measure, what fruit size is our breasts (lemon, cherry, orange etc) and whether it is centralize or not! yes believe it or not, it could be wide, narrow or standard (middle). Then the types of bras that could help make your shape better/comfortable/suitable to wear. After the event, everyone got a free Xixili bra voucher fro Xixili! (the voucher is valid until 14th February, 2011) and Gorgeous Magazine (one of the sponsors) had a special table for subscription sign ups! A year's bi-monthly subscription for RM38.00. I sign up to support our new magazine in Malaysia! 

next event is on books 10/3/11

Hope everyone had a good time there. Wevents will be having another event soon in March and you need to sign up as a member to get the latest news on it. Anyone interested in being a volunteer could also contact them at their website or facebook

Many thanks to dear friend Fatin Feisal (chocolatecatz.blogspot.com) for helping me to snap photos while I'm busy at work!
