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.

Back from Belum Rainforest Resort, Perak!

3.28.2011

have you seen such wonders in Perak?

Have u guys heard of the Belum-Temengor Forest and the "Save Temengor" Campaign? I never thought one bit about these forest until I was invited by Rexona & Malaysia Nature Society to experience the wonders of the Belum-Temengor in a 3 Days 2 Nights stay at the Belum Rainforest Resort which is another wonderful place I discover in the midst of all this flora and fauna. Yes I'm back and gosh I have a pile of photos to share soon! for now this photo is so beautiful, I'd like to share it first for all to see. Big thanks to gal friend Wei Zhi for getting me to go!

P.S: Can you spot that Cloud Phoenix soaring in the sky? I guess this is one of the magical creatures you can find in Belum-Temengor Forest Complex.

I look so out of place in this photo, it makes sense for Farah to be scared!
Interesting launch, when the Mini Countryman arrived in KTM train, everyone went "OOOHHH WAHHH" and the girls were screaming away. The bandit came down and introduce the Mini which is different in ways better and bigger (4 doors sounds good and able to sit up to 5!). I do love the red colored mini, wished there was a pink one which I told the marketing manager Farid to get for us girls! Many thanks to Aya and Natasha for inviting us to this launch too! fun & cool night! (wished there's air conditioning though).

Earth Hour

3.26.2011

Kiehl's Earth Hour

Earth Hour is a global event organized by WWF and is held on the last Saturday of March annually. At 8.30pm, millions of people around the world will turn off their lights for Earth Hour. This is an awareness movement intended to get people talking about the importance of reducing human impact on the Earth.

I'm at Belum Rainforest Resort & guess what?
They're participating too!

In support of Earth Hour, brands like Kiehl's will be having a "shopping in the dark" event and resorts like Belum Rainforest Resort will be turning off all non essential lights and electronic equipment from 8.30-9.30pm (1 hour only) on 26.3.2011 this year to help everyone Go Green..Let's work together and join in this year's Global Earth event for a better future. Our actions can add up.

What are the things you can do for Earth Hour at Home?
  • shut off your computer (this means no Facebook no Twitter!)
  • unplug appliances (small electronic appliances like radio, electronic clocks, etc you can also unplug your microwaves)
  • anything u can do to conserve energy and reduce your electric bill.
 I wonder if you can make it romantic on Earth Hour too? light up candles and have a nice bubble bath with soothing aromatherapy. A time to relax and remember how to enjoy by ourselves without electricity, that is boil water in a pot using gas stove and pour it into your bath tub/big pail of cold water. Turn it into foot spa if you don't have bath tub aye?

I BUY U BUY WE BUY!

3.25.2011

a new deal for you

Recently I stumbled upon another site called WeBUY.Com.My! It's an interesting site that features discounts from 50%-90%! You may ask how they can get discounts up to 90%? it's because it's a group buying site where they share the concept of collective buying. WeBUY.Com.My has a deal every max 3 days and currently they have deal RM6 for 1 Fusion Spanish Tapas (21 choices) from 32 Bistro. Bar at Sunway Pyramid or Bandar Puteri Puchong.

today's deal

That's 65% discount off 3 course dinner set with chilled juice (worth RM70) but what's the catch? Group buying works this way. A deal will only be on or activated if there's enough people buying the deal within the deal period! Say it takes min 30 deals sold for this 3 course dinner with chilled juice Feature in 1 day but only 10 bought it? the deal will not be on and you won't be charged for it!. What happens when more than 30 deals are sold? THE DEAL IS ON! everyone gets the deal!

watch how We Buy works

Did you watch the video? it shows how WeBUY.Com.My works gets unbelievable deals for us, how a deal works and how we can finally redeem and enjoy your deal at the place be it a shopping place, a dining place or a pampering spa place! There's so many websites now like WeBUY.Com.My but the difference is how they choose their deal. WeBUY.Com.My focuses on quality deals to feature so that customers can experience good food, services, events or spas at an affordable price. There's no calling bluff with WeBUY.Com.My as they give very clear details on their deals and easy to use functions.

suggest a business for We Buy

Every time there's a new deal, I feel it's a new adventure! There's so many things to do and plan in the city once you get on board the bandwagon. Since we can try a place and not regret paying heaps for it, it becomes really fun and if the place is really good, I will go back there! But if I can't find a deal that suits me, guess what? I can suggest a place/deal to WeBUY.Com.My's "suggest a business" site so they can strike a deal with the merchant and make it happen for me! =D awesome.


Check out their facebook page here to start suggesting places for fun, maybe someone will hear it? Don't forget to register as a member too so that WeBUY.Com.My can email deals to you so you won't missed out a thing.

A Date with Lancome Maqui Miracle

3.23.2011

All New Maqui Miracle Foundation
(compact powder RM130, casing rm55)

I received an invitation to experience the latest product via a exclusive and personalized session with Lancome Colour Design Artist (LCDA) and I was thinking whether I should go. The Lancome Teint Miracle liquid foundation that I reviewed last year was to me a light & sheer liquid foundation that brightens & plumps up my face. "Aura in a bottle" is now in the form of  a compact powder. Curious I decided to check it out although I am not a fan of compact powders as I have dry skin and most compact powders make my skin cakey or look like an opera singer.

Bonjour Lancome! I am here to try!

I arrived late (no thanks to the KL jam & rain) to be welcomed by Lancome's Head Make-Up Artist and Trainer, Zam (lovingly called). I thought he looked familiar, I think I seen him in action at Miss Sixty's fashion event last year. Zam's so cute and friendly (you can see it from the photos) I want to ask Lancome if I can bring him back along with the beautiful roses. If only every morning I could wake up to a beautiful make up counter like this and my own personalized LCDA giving me the look of the day.
today we're focusing on the compact powder okie?
 
available in 8 shades

Since the Maqui Miracle do not have the same 18 Hour Hydration as Teint Miracle, what's does it have then? What is the difference between Teint Miracle's light aura and this one here?
  • 12 Hours Longer Lasting aura of brightening skin that lasts. Women can look forward to hour after hour of bright, translucent perfection.
  • SPF 35/PA+++
  • Aura Bright Technologies (light complex with bioptic berry pink pigments and blue pigment to reveal vibrant translucency of a fresh pure complexion). Bioptic Pink = correct dullness, allowing natural healthy glow. Bioptic Blue neutralizes yellow tones and reinforce appearance of  freshness and purity complexion.
  • it's an Aura in a Compact Powder form now which is sheer, light plus feels barely there.
However when combined with the use of Teint Miracle liquid foundation as base before Maqui Miracle, the coverage is much better (for light to medium coverage). Zam even uses the Teint Miracle as a eyeshadow base & concealer. He does it by layering the Teint Miracle via massage application techniques before blending with the Maqui Miracle. The result? a flawless bright complexion with my redness and uneven skin tone minimized. My tired looking face and eyes gone in a matter of a few minutes.


changes in a matter of a few minutes of make up!
no photoshop done! this is the actual photos

My thoughts on the Maqui Miracle, I couldn't believe that it's a foundation compact powder as it's very light and sheer. When I blend it on my hand, it seems to disappear off leaving a brighten spot. Zam told me it's great to achieve that natural looking fresh face glow and with the right usage of tips & tricks, we could highlight areas to look more radiant and alive. It works on me very well as I do not need a high coverage for my face. Just to tone down my redness, uneven skin tone and make me look more awake than tired would do the trick. Making it a point to hydrate my face if not any powder on face would look dry.
 
before and after using the special sponge
(example only on a shade)
 
special sponge with 2 different sides

The coolest thing was when Zam told us about the special sponge that comes with the Lancome Maqui Miracle Compact Powder. It's actually a double sided sponge that works differently. Side A which is apparent to our eyes, appears much more purous than Side B that has a smooth soft texture appearance. What's the difference u say? Side A is to "grab" the compact powder particles like a brush! Normal sponge would require you to slide it with pressure so you could get the powder (and sometimes I notice girls do rollerskates on the powder compact with their sponge) but with this special sponge, it grabs the powder easily for application. Side B comes in handy to blend the powder, creating a soft, even tone appearance from the bleending. Saves you time from grab & blend process. That opera look won't be haunting u now.

LIVELY BRIGHTENING COMPACT · 12HR LASTING · SPF 35/PA+++

A contest going on for those who head over to Lancome counters to try the all new Maqui Miracle compact powder "mini makeover" (just a express one not a full makeover or like mine).

What Do Women Want? Shopping, Gorgeous Boyfriend, Love?

3.21.2011

 did this scenario happened to you?
-real life tails of miu-

Sometimes my boyfriend look so cute & handsome, I want to give him a kiss for doing something nice but when I lean over to kiss him, I realized something about his face. There's blackheads, pimples, uneven skin tone, looks really oily and is that something growing there? *SHRIKES!*

WHAT DO WOMEN WANT?
shopping without being nagged
gorgeous without make up
her man look gorgeous too?

Why guys don't take care of their faces?! they worry so much about their body and size but when it comes to their skin, they can make do with just soap (magic soap which they use for hair, body, face). I ask my boyfriend why he doesn't take care of his face and he answers me because I didn't take care of his face! (dumbfounded). Okay sorry not all guys are like my boyfriend. Some guys that I know actually takes really good care of their faces. I wish my boyfriend could take care of his skin like us, at least maybe the right cleanser so his skin won't be so oily or rough.
How about you what do you want?
 
Maybe I should buy him Olay Men Solutions? Olay is the first skincare product that I use when I started taking care of my skin. Now Olay is going to have a skincare range just for men (fights three male skin issues - oiliness, uneven skin tone and roughness). Sounds just right for my man because he has oily skin due to excess sebum and couple with sweat, clogged pores that causes pimples. His skin is also rough due to regular shaving. He says it's great, but I would need to teach him how to use the products when I get it for him!
