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.

Retail Therapy: New Sunnies from Malaya Optical


let's go shopping shall we?

I bloody lost my Coach sunglasses fitted with power lenses somore this year. Dam sakit hati wei, I still want it back!!! What happened to it. Did I misplace it or put in some kawan's car? I have no idea. So many bloody things happened to me this year, may as well turn my life into that movie "a series of unfortunate events".  Beh tahan (tak boleh tahan betul) so I decided to go on a retail therapy spree this month starting with buying a new pair of shades at Malaya Optical, Uptown. You know I always come back here to get my frames done because it's my family approved shop haha. What can I say, you shop where your family shop haha.

jeng jeng Malaya Optical Uptown!
(and thank goodness for the customer only car park)

Dam I forgot to take picture with the owner, Ryan Ho. He's like the coolest dude in the Optical-sphere. Gives me member discounts coz I am their regular customer. He's always at the shop but I needed to make sure he's there when I visit because I always ask him "this looks good on me?" "which one suits me?" "what's in trend now?". After all he's like Tyra Banks of America's Next Top Model but for eyewear styling. Yes he's has been on magazines and newspaper as Malaysia's first eyewear stylist and designer. If you visit Malaya Optical Uptown, you can see the features on him framed up on his wall of fame. He gives styling advise to his customers as part of your Malaya Optical experience so don't hesitate to ask him what is good and what looks good on you for your budget.

ask Ryan what looks good on you!

they're having the end of the season sale now!
(I am eyeing on the Superdry frames next ish)

no more Coach, I'm getting Vivien Westwood instead
(Ryan says designer brands are in trend)

get a sunglass that balance your face frame
(so you look fabulous 24/7)

I came at the right time because they're having Christmas sale now up to 75% off! *happy*. Went in and ask Ryan which sunglass brands are in trend now? I was thinking of getting Coach again but he says why not try designer brands? It's all about designers now. Yeah I listen to you okay? You know best lah. Ryan picked out Vivien Westwood, a frame that suits my round face. The oversize design looks great on me since my face is so chubby. Slims down my face frame :)

Particularly love the colour and planet bling bling on the side of the sunglasses. Of course I could always choose other brands, there's so many like Oakley, Tag Heuer, Coach, Prada, Marc Jacobs, etc but I fell for Vivien Westwood on first sight.

wearing shades while driving is freakin awesome

From time to time you would have read about my guy friend Jeremy, we worked together at LivingSocial Malaysia for nearly 2 years. Recently we started hanging out again after a year of not speaking to each other. He drove me to Malaya Optical to pick up my sunglasses last Sunday and being insane, we decided to go on a road trip to Genting to have coffee and wear our sunglasses to show off. Well that's a brilliant "opening ceremony" idea haha!. The amount of selfies we took in the car *tsk tsk* I can only say wearing shades while driving is just too dam stylo. In less than an hour, we reach Genting, bought our Coffee Bean drinks and sat down for another selfie moment.

my new sunglasses are so cool, Jeremy fainted

I will say it again and again - every girl needs an awesome pair of shades to look fabulous. Don't buy Petaling Street one, invest in a really good one a.k.a branded lagi bagus coz it makes us feel and look good inside out. My Vivien Westwood sunglasses costs RM500-600 only (before discount) and the lenses which are power prescript goes for RM200-300. My Christmas gift to myself, beside my Macbook Air. Gosh this month is really retail therapy extreme to make up for the series of unfortunate events in my life.
