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.

Limited Edition Havaianas Collectible Summer Kit

6.08.2014

check out my Gil Elgren pin-up girl illustration towel

This comes as a late post but it's never too late to start Summer showing off my new pairs of Havaianas Summer Kit which I never opened till today. While moving house, I accidentally kept it up out of sight above my wardrobe. Now that it's Summer, well I know it's Summer all year long in Malaysia but it's nice to get ready for Summer fun, thinking about staycations, holiday getaways, sandy beaches, wait how about holding hands with the person you love the most while the sun goes down? That's just how I envision my Summer *love*.



June please be nice to me

I owned like 5 pairs of Havaianas flip flops and I wear them everywhere I go. They're in good condition which is why I continue to buy Havaianas even though they're expensive. You can say I'm a Havaianas fan :) and that's why I am thrilled to be having the Havaianas Summer Kit featuring pin-up illustrations by world-renowned American Illustrator Gil Elvgren. That's the reason why I never wore them straight away, they're just too precious!. Gil Elvgren's illustrations are the bomb. He turns women into pin up girls which looks super cute or sexy. Here's some examples:


Gil Elvgren illustrations on flip flops & towels


Who is Elvgren?
A handful of American artists would lift the pinup calendar to its greatest heights. Among those, Alberto Vargas, George Petty, Rolf Armstrong, Zoe Mozert, Earl Moran and to the one and only Gil Elvgren. Gil Elvgren (March 15, 1914-February 29, 1980), born Gillette Elvgren, was an American painter of pin-up girls, advertising and illustration. Elvgren lived in various locations, and was active from the 1930s to 1970s. Today he is best known for his pin-up paintings for Brown & Bigelow. Elvgren was one of the most important pin-up and glamour artists of the twentieth century. In addition, he was a classical American illustrator. He was a master of portraying the feminine, but he wasn't limited to the calendar pin-up industry. He was strongly influenced by the early "pretty girl" illustrators, such as Charles Dana Gibson, Andrew Loomis, and Howard Chandler Christy. Other influences included the Brandywine School founded by Howard Pyle. Elvgren was a commercial success. His clients ranged from Brown & Bigelow and Coca-Cola to General Electric and Sealy Mattress Company. In addition, during the 1940s and 1950s he illustrated stories for a host of magazines, such as The Saturday Evening Post and Good Housekeeping. Although best known for his pin-ups, his work for Coca-Cola and others depicted typical bAmericans - ordinary people doing everyday things. The women Elvgren painted were never the femme fatale, the female adventuress, or somebody's mistress. They are the girl next door whose charms are innocently revealed in that fleeting instant when she is caught unaware in what might be an embarrassing situation.

each Summer Kit consists of a flip-flop with a pin-up girl illustration
& a matching towel – truly a collector’s item!


only 20 pairs available in Malaysia

So I was ecstatic when Havaianas sent me a summer surprise, this pair of Havaianas flip flops with a cute pin-up girl illustration and matching towel. It's not for sale, there's no price tag on these and there's only 20 pairs available in Malaysia and out of this, 10 personalities who embody the carefree spirit of summer and Glenn are sent this gift! Thank you Havaianas Malaysia *hugs & kisses*.
