    explore | find yourself | experience
    in another world | different time | different place
    Dec 2012

    My journey to Bangkok last Christmas, alone by myself gave me the oppurtunity to discover sights and sounds that I have never realize before. The beauty in each step, each place I visit, the people, the food, the culture gave me something to bring back - myself in a new light. I have since fallen in love with Thailand from my journey thanks to P&G Beauty VisionHouse. I wonder if I could relive the experience again until I found... The Big Blog Exchange. It's starting tomorrow, the contest I mean and everyone should join because we have the power to change the world through our eyes, through our blogs.

    What is The Big Blog Exchange?

    We are looking for 16 passionate, talented and adventurous bloggers who will have the chance to travel and exchange blogs, lives, places and cultures simultaneously for ten days. So, whether you blog about travel, politics, fashion, beauty, or even cupcakes, we want YOU to take part and help us change the world using the power of YOUR blogs.

    be a part of the The Big Blog Exchange

    How can you get involved?

    If you have taken a look at the website, viewed the trailer and are keen to get involved, the best way to be kept up to date is to subscribe for updates via email (there is an option to do this on the website). This will ensure you will be notified when the project competition site launches, and will provide you with a link to sign up when it becomes available. The competition site will launch on the 1st March 2013, and will run until 15th April – so that bloggers can encourage readers, friends and family to vote for their chance to be a part of the competition. Smaller bloggers needn’t worry though, as two ‘wildcard’ choices will be chosen, regardless of the number of votes, based on the content of their blog and their inspiration for taking part.

    VanityTrove Beautiful Surprises: Beauty Boxes


    my first Beauty Box review

    Beauty boxes has been a much gush about find that surprises its paying subscribers for the past year since their first debut in M'sia by fabulous finds (no longer in operation). Since then many more beauty boxes appeared and I have been rejecting to review them due to work related reasons. Until lately, I changed my mind and accepted a review invitation from VanityTrove to find out what everyone else is talking about.

    look what the postman brought me? 

    comes with a personalized note, I'm touched!

    trial size products with brochures

    and a Valentine's chocolates surprise!

    While its one thing to pay to receive samples, the idea of being surprised by random beauty products in either sample, deluxe or trial sizes still manages to surprise us girls in more ways than one. Maybe it's our hormones. One could never explain why we love receiving goodies in personalized box, hand delivered to our doorsteps.

    I guess being girls we just loved to be surprised regardless of what we get. I'm not being sarcastic here!

    It's like Valentine's Day. We know its heavily commercialized but we still want to part of it. Whether it be chocolates, a handmade card or a flower. Our heart strings are pulled by the mere thoughts of receiving something random knowing we are loved, remembered or appreciated on this day.

    And I guess there's where VanityTrove comes in. 1 beautiful surprise, many ways to enjoy it.

     how much to own your very ownVanity Trove?

    For RM60 each month, a specially put together trove filled with latest and trendiest beauty treats hand-delivered to your doorstep for your enjoyment.

    • A treat to yourself because you deserve the pampering.
    • For a girlfriend because she turns another year older and more beautiful.
    • For a fantastic best friend, just because.
    • For your mom because she is special.
    • For your sister because she just got a promotion:

    visit Vanity Trove to find out more

    beautiful surprises anyone?

    The wonderful ways of giving connects with us and I dare say it connects with the shopaholics mantra because there's are just the reasons why we continue to shop even if its on a rainy day.

    Just because.

    Kerastase Cristalliste Review

    introducing the Kerastase Cristalliste for long hair

    Girls love pink so I'm betting a lot of girls will be loving the new haircare range from Kerastase called the Cristalliste. What is it for? well according to the packaging, it's for shine and movement and I am going to interpret this as shiny healthy hair that's light and airy. I guess with global warming affecting our little green planet, light and airy hair care products are all the rage now. I mean our weather is going hotter by the minute and if our hair is weighing us down under the heat, it'll just be a matter of second before someone shaves it all off and goes cuckoo.

    Cristalliste is our best kept secret for long hair that feels dull and lifeless with weighed down roots and dry ends. The lightweight formulas create fresh, free flowing hair from root to end with incredible crystal-like shine and lots of movement.

    In short, if you're a Rapunzel suffering from greasy oily roots and hair that weighs you down the high tower and being on that diet didn't help increase your strength to fold them back up, the Cristalliste hair care range may be your answer to light, fresh and shiny hair free from worries. There's two types of shampoo available, one for fine the other for thick hair type. I tried the  Cristalliste Bain Cristal Luminous Perfecting Shampoo for thick hair and yes I'm loving it! Among all the light and shiny hair care products that I have tried, this receives my donut points because I didn't get dandruff crazy after using it! apart from it doing what it says - lightweight, fresh, shiny hair throughout the day.

    I get dandruff crazy when shampoos don't meet eye to eye with my scalp. 

    bet Rapunzel will love the Cristalliste

    However since I have dry and damage hair, the LAIT CRISTAL conditioner didn't do much to restore moisture and order back as compared to the Kerastraight Keratin Conditioner that I have devoted myself to. The texture is runny so when I first used it, I accidentally squirted too much out. I guess light and airy formulated conditioner would work better for those with healthier hair.

    I had to use the LUMIÈRE LIQUIDE serum to detangle my hair and treat the ends so there's where I will say the serum is works like a charm. It's light watery fluid makes it feel weightless on my hair and there's shine (thanks to silicons). I would still recommend using mythic oil compared to this but in terms of seriously light and airy serums? stick to LUMIÈRE LIQUIDE but make sure you cleanse your hair well after :)

    p.s Cristalliste smells like sweet candy

     the shampoo & serum has clear runny liquid formulas

     conditioner is a runny, milky cream like

    Will I purchase this? hmmm the shampoo I love very much :) but the conditioner is not suitable for my hair. I am using this on alternate shampoo days for the light and airy feel.
