  • Luxury Makeup Brushes From C.Queen Beauty!


    looking for affordable but quality makeup brushes?

    Look no further. I got my brushes from a reader who's an avid beauty lover. She worked as a makeup artist for many years and finally decided to open her own online shop called C.Queen Beauty selling and supplying makeup brushes to beauty schools in Kuala Lumpur. Her brushes are quick to catch on for a few reasons! 
    • quality
    • affordability
    • premium goat hair
    How did she start? Well I don't know the full story but she did tell me she looked high and low for quality makeup brushes and when she finally found it, she made the collection in her nick name C.Queen! Coming from a makeup artist with nearly 10 years of working experience, who knows makeup brushes better than her? When I saw the pictures on her Facebook, I could tell these are good brushes and I was shocked that she's selling them at only RM228! I'm talking about the whole brush collection, with a travel case turn brush container and courier right to your doorsteps for only RM228.

    12pc luxury makeup brushes made from premium goat hair

    C.Queen says "This professional brush set was specially designed for a fun yet functional makeup application. This kit contains twelve brushes made from premium goat hair. The brushes come in an innovative and functional container that turns into two brush holders to keep you stylish and organized". 

    a 2-in-1 elegant brush container

    I placed an order for a brush set to be sent to my home and within days the postmen was ringing my doorbell! My heart skipped a beat when I unbox the package to smell newly made brushes and somewhat leathery case smell. Now I don't know if it's made of real leather, the brush container material seems to be somewhat like a leather casing. It might not be! (I'm no expert in leather haha). You might get put off by the brushes giving out a fresh from the factory smell. Just wash them gentle with baby soap or your brush cleaner.

    I love the duo fibre "skunk" brush!
    (it gives a natural & delicate finishing to your face powders)

    the goat hair brushes are so soft!

    they're all actual sizes not travel size! so worth it

    do you know what each brush can do?

    12pc Luxury Makeup Brush Set is an essential collection for any makeup junkie. Available only for RM228 with a brush container perfect for travel (keeps all 12 pieces of brushes inside) and can be used as a duo brush container when you're not traveling! C.Queen throws in Pos Laju with every brush set purchase. LIMITED QUANTITY LEFT! (the brush cans is selling fast).
    1. Small Angle/Eyebrow: Create precise lining. Moves fluidly and easily across the upper and lower lash lines. Use with gel, cream or powder liners.
    2. Medium Angled Shading: Soft application of color. Use for brow highlighting or to blend the crease.
    3. Large Shader: Uniformly cover the whole lid with product. Apply cream shadow base or cream shadow for quick and even coverage.
    4. Pencil: Soften and smoke out lines. Soften pencil liners along the top and bottom lash lines, add shadow to line the eyes, or use to highlight inner corner of eyes.
    5. Large Angled Contour: Subtle cheek application. Use the angle to softly contour the cheekbone. Can also be used to apply blush.
    6. Large Powder: Even powder application. Uniform blending of powder products onto the face and body.
    7. Duo Fibre: Creates an airbrush effect onto the skin. Can be used with powder, liquid or cream products.
    8. Foundation: Smooth foundation application. Apply liquid or cream products such as foundation and primer.
    9. Concealer: Conceal small areas. Conceal the hardest to reach areas such as around the nose and eyes.
    10. Tapered Blending: Soft blended crease. Using just the tips to apply color, sweep back and forth through the crease for a diffused and blended finish.
    11. Eye Shading: Even application of color. Place color across the whole lid for an even and strong application of product.
    12. Eye Liner: Create smooth and even lines. Use with gel or liquid liners.

    Biotherm PUREFECT Skin Giveaway



    (worth RM280 each)

    This is a public service announcement to warn you that recent changes in air quality might affect or has affected your skin. Yes I'm talking about the nasty haze that is coming to pollute not only our air, but our health and skin as well. How does haze affect us? The humidity, heat and pollution can upset the balance of our skin. With accumulated pollution, sebum and sweat secreted through pores cover skin with 3 layers of impurities. Skin is then deprived of pure oxygen, an essential to life.

    pollutions are not your skin's best friend
    (image source: http://www.todayonline.com)

    I love Lat comics! This one is on Raya
    (image credit: LAT)

    What are other significant changes that might upset the balance of our skin besides pollution? Sudden change in dietary habits combined with the long period of daily fasting, can have a detrimental effect on the skin. These are the symptoms of dehydration associated with fasting that you should look out for -  breakouts, oily skin, acne, open pores, dry patches and dull-looking skin. You may want to consider a change in your daily skincare products to one that would help you manage and balance your skin problems during the fasting month.

    are you experiencing any skin problems this month?

    haze can affect your skin with 3 layers of impurities

    Biotherm introduces the PUREFECT skincare range to help you control the skin problems face during this month of haze or sudden change of dietary lifestyle. The PUREFECT is suitable for normal to combination skin range and contains purifying active ingredients to combat impurities at pollution level, sebum level and sweat level. It has triple-action benefits such as anti-pore, anti-shin and anti-imperfections to help you get back your flawless skin.

    contains salicylic acid to combat acne and breakouts by unclogging your pores due to trap sebum excretions.
    contains L. Digitata Extract, Zinc & Perlite to reduce shine and oiliness. 
    contains Digitata Extract & Zinc for anti-bacterial benefits and reduce excess sebum production.

    the 3 action benefits of Biotherm PUREFECT

    Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre & Liposonix Treatment


    sexy Tammy wearing just this

    Okay maybe not sexy enough for some of you but you don't get to see me bearing this "look" all the time here! For this particular post, I'm daring to show my sexy shoulders because I'm in a surgical nightgown (is that what's it called?) getting ready to lose a full pant or dress size down! Believe it or not.

    "OMG Tammy how is that possible? please share the secret to me!" - readers cries.

    Yes yes I will, only if you have money. No money no talk baby the treatment costs RM12,000! I'm not being mean but the procedure that I'm going to share to you is one that uses advance technology to zap zap fats away so you can immediate see results and more after a couple of months. It's called the liposonix treatment. No surgery needed, just you in a blue gown like me at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre

    the first Liposonix treatment introduced in Malaysia here

     walking into the future of aesthetic treatments  

    spacious, contemporary modern design

    a hotel-like hospital that attracts many attention

    a class of its own

    the treatment room

    Beverly Wilshire? or Beverly Hills?

    Are you impressed by the photographs of Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre? I didn't even know such hotel-like hospitals exists in Malaysia until I was introduced to experience the Liposonix treatment courtesy of Liposonix. Just smelling the air here makes you feel you're in a modern state of the art medical facility in the future. Everyone here is so nice and smiley, especially my doctor, Dr. Liow Tiong Sin! He gave me a quick assessment check to see if I was suitable for the treatment instead of pushing me into the sea haha. Through a quick check, I found out I needed to at least have 1cm of fat on my targeted area - tummy to passed for the treatment. OF COURSE I HAVE MORE THAN 1CM OF FAT haha. I have more than enough to donate to anyone who needs my fats!

    The Liposonix treatment is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that can get rid of targeted fat around your waistline. It uses high-intensity ultrasound energy to permanently destroy unwanted abdominal fat. Skin is not harmed as fat tissue just beneath the skin is permanently destroyed. The body will naturally removes the treated fat, leaving you with a thinner, more contoured waistline. The treatment is completed in just one office visit and lasts about one hour. With little to no downtime, you can resume your active lifestyle right away. - Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre

    watch the introduction video!

     the Liposonix machine

    uses high-intensity ultrasound energy

    to destroy stubborn fats

    But seriously this treatment is not an escape to losing weight even if you have a lot of moolah to throw. This is the way when you have come to a crossroad where your favorite pair of jeans just can't be button and whatever you do - exercise, diet seems to not work in getting that muffin of yours to shrink! That very "last inch" around your waistline, annoys you to hell. Your husband calls it your kangaroo pouch and your mother says "dahlah look like pregnant bila belum pregnant lagi".

    And of course the annoying, "Are you pregnant" question when you actually just have this stubborn love handles sticking out. Trust me I get that all the time.

    I asked Dr. Liow Tiong Sin if there are any negative side effects to this procedure? to which he says there is nothing more than feelings and bruises due to the treatment that I will be experiencing. My mind flashes across on my mom's quote "there are always side effects". Dr. Liow Tiong Sin  added that I would feel some kind of  discomfort which varies from one individual to another. I was curious... what discomfort?

    Liposonix is:
    1. Safe, non-surgical and non-invasive
    1. A revolutionary treatment using high-intensity focused ultrasound to treat and eliminate stubborn fat
    1. Perfect for people close to their ideal size and shape – but need help where diet and exercise just won’t work

    A push to getting to your ideal shape when all else fails. Zap zap the fats away and see your old jeans on you again! (can sell this copy to Liposonix haha)Dr. Liow Tiong Sin told me it's a really simple and fast procedure that will be over in an hour. I could go back to work and just be on my normal lifestyle routine. Though I would see bruises and soreness (again depending on individuals) I would instantly see results from the treatment and along 8 - 12 weeks afters. The fats would be destroyed and come out of my system naturally, so all I need to do is drink plenty of water.

    walking along the corridors to my treatment room

    it looks so surreal to be here!

    Long story short, I have decided to cut my story telling into three parts! The second part would be me on this bed here and going through the Liposonix procedure (scary? hehe). I will tell it all here - about how it's done and how does it feel like to have your fats blasted to oblivion with high intensity ultrasound. Whether there are any side effects as my mother so warns me of everything I do and if I do lose a pant or dress size down!

    The Lipsonix treatment costs RM12,000. Check out Beverly Wilshire Medical Centres website and facebook for a list of their treatments as they don't only do Liposonix. For more information about Liposonix click here. There's more details and images that what I just shared here.

    Day 1 Hong Kong Disneyland is FUN!


    welcome to Hong Kong Disneyland!

    Continuing my Hong Kong Disneyland story, I just finish the super awesome Disney Special Dim Sum Lunch Set Promotion at the Crystal Lotus Restaurant, Disneyland Hotel so now I'm heading to the next best thing - DISNEYLAND! It was just a bus ride away, so convenient! I just love how everything is already planned in this place. Really different from visiting Hong Kong out of Disneyland. Again everyone is super nice and helpful here and they speak English too because I am a banana (yellow outside white inside).

    you can buy Hong Kong Disneyland tickets online

    there's two types of 1-day tickets
    (children rates are lower)

    a 2-day ticket is a better deal & more fun!
    (1day HK450 vs 2day HK585)

    easy to buy online & just print to collect!

    the website is pack with information for tourist!

    this is where my journey starts!

    Of course before even flying to Hong Kong, I did some research on Hong Kong Disneyland website on how to get there, what to see, the schedules of character appearances, schedules of the show times (Festival of the Lion King, The Golden Mickeys, Flights of Fantasy Parade, Fireworks!). The website is pack with information for newbies like me. For convenience, I bought the Disneyland tickets from here using my credit card. Printed the tickets from my e-mail and brought them to Hong Kong. Buying a 2-day ticket is so much more worth it than 1-day plus if I didn't use it I can upgrade to a magic access! (1-year membership).

    3 things you need before your adventure starts!

    At the entrance of Hong Kong Disneyland, I grabbed three essential items for my adventure. They were really helpful in guiding me and informing me what I could do in Disneyland! I really highly recommend you get these pamphlets before entering! Here's what I summarized about the 3 essential guides:
    • GuideMap: Shows you all the 7 wonderful lands you should visit in Hong Kong Disneyland and the rides you should not miss!
    • Times Guide: Shows you the character appearance time for photo moments, show times, parade and fireworks. You need this to plan your adventure to ensure you experience everything within these 2-days!
    • Resort Dining Guide: Tells you where to eat at Hong Kong Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Hollywood Hotel. Including information and introduction about the dining places.
    I reached Disneyland at 3.30pm, guess what?

    so many people waiting along the main street!

    my heart became more excited with the crowd

    my brother with his cool pose

    here comes the Flights of Fantasy Parade!
    it was so awesome! MUSIC Singing Dancing!

    Mickey & his Magical Airship arrives!!!
    leading the parade with lovable Disney characters

    it's Donald & Gofey! *waves waves*

    Donald Duck strikes a pose! quack quack

    here comes the Lion King ship! boom boom boom

    the atmosphere was so lively so fun!
    (you gotta experience this it's so amazing)

    the cutest airship ever by Winnie the Pooh!

    jumping bees dancing to the beat!

    Winnie the Pooh! & his hunny pot!

    ohhhh?!!! look what follows behind them?!

    the Disney Princesses has arrived!

    GOSH there's no way to describe how I feel about witnessing the Flights of Fantasy Parade the moment I reach Hong Kong Disneyland! It was like perfect timing and it wasn't so crowded! The weather was scorching hot in June, but thank goodness it didn't rain. I totally love the parade so much, it's the NUMBER ONE SHOW that everyone must not miss out on! All the Disney characters coming out to play and to say hello. The lively music, the dancing, the cheerful bouncing bees is so surreal!!!

    must buy Minnie Mouse headgear
    to complete Disneyland experience

    After the parade at Main Street, U.S.A, we walk to Fantasyland which was all cute and pink, my favorite color haha! This is the place to start exploring first because there's many things to see here and rides to enjoy like The Golden Mickeys, it’s a small world Mickey's PhilharMagic and The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh. This is also where Sleeping Beauty Castle can be found and at 8pm you can see the Disney in Stars FIREWORKS! (yes the popular fireworks over the castle scene!).

    so many things to do at Fantasyland

    Sleeping Beauty Castle!

    first thing? The Golden Mickeys at Storybook Theater

    every show area has a stroller parking for families!
    (stroller can be rented from MainStreet, U.S.A near entrance)

    a red carpet star studded musical featuring...

    all time fave Disney films!
    it was like watching a Grammy's Award

    it's a small world is just beside the Storybook Theatre

    ride on a boat around the world with cute lil' dolls

    from different countries dancing & welcoming you

    The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh
    (so cute! you get to sit in a hunny pot ride!)

    hunny pot ride to search for hunny
    (feel the wind blowing at your face too!)

    this is where they say must watch 3D attraction
    (which is more like 4D cinema show)

    we will watch tomorrow instead!
    meet the characters - Twinkle Bell

    From 3pm with the parade show, we are going to finish off visiting 4 lands, rides and shows in 3 hours! It's a awesome adrenaline rush and we feel excited catching up all the shows and rides on the first day. After Fantasyland, my brother and me set off to visit the three new exclusive lands my friends talk about. It's the Grizzly Gulch (world exclusive), Mystic Point (world exclusive) and Toy Story Land (Asia exclusive). 

    welcome to the 3 new lands!

    Look! there's Woody waiting for us!

    the colorful & fun Toy Story Land 
    (my fave land among all!)

    at the Barrel of Fun, the first to take pic with Jessie!
    (everyone was so jealous muahhahaha)

    feels like I'm in the Toy Story movie too
    T-Rex, planes, Christmas lights. This place is so fun!

    Toy Soldier Parachute Drop, RC Racer & Slinky Dog Spin

    OH NO SO SCARY!!! I can't do this sob sob
    (but my brother happily went to sit!)

    look he can't wait to get to the top!
    (Pen Merah & her bff was also with us)

    up he goes!!! brother why u so daring!!!
    (he says it's super fun & not scary at all)
    but sorry I prefer the rides that don't move haha
    (yeah so many photo taking spots)

    each land has a souvenir shop & fun pit stops

    next stop - Mystic Point

    my brother & I posing at Mystic Manor

    The Mystic Manor is a amazing place to take photographs! Just look at the house. It looks like a magical house waiting to explode with mysteries. Lord Henry Mystic stays in this house and he is a traveller who loves to collect things he find here. His trusted companion is a monkey named Albert, a very cheeky one too. We rode the "Mystic Magneto-Electric Carriage" to enjoy front-row experience of Lord Henry Mystic's collection but suddenly our journey becomes a adventure when Albert cheekily opens a magical music box and unleashes music dust.

    welcome to the Mystic Manor, children supervision needed
    (but it's not as scary as Toy Story Land rides!)

    we heard this is the best ride so we're going!

    watch this video to find out what we saw inside!
    (which is AWESOME it's the best ride ever!)

    outside Mystic Manor, there's the Garden of Wonders
    (ancient sculptures & paintings creating 3D illusions) 

    for the most unbelievable photo-taking experience!

    welcome to the bear Grizzly Gulch!
    (very cowboy feel town)
    looks suitable for my fiance to be here

    the Geyser Gulch area, kids love to play water here!
    (part of Grizzly Gulch was accidentally built on an active geyser!)

    I'm SO WANTED (hahahha)
    Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Cars
    wildest ride in the West!

    sit in mine cars racing up & down the mountain
    (your popcorn will fly out too)

    You won't believe it. My brother forced me to sit in this ride, which was the WILDEST RIDE in Hong Kong Disneyland. I should have known to faster run away to hide behind the popcorn wagons when I hear people screaming from inside the tunnels! I thought alright, for the last ride before we go for dinner, I'll just accompany him on the Big Grizzly Mountain Runaway Mine Car. Maybe I should try this for a change instead of the "non moving" rides haha. WRONG!!! it was so scary!!! the mine car race was so fast, it went up the mountain and came crashing down. Then it went reverse (rewinding) back to where we start in like a matter of few seconds! OMG my stomach was in my mouth, my mouth was on the chair. I literally closed my eyes this entire ride, holding on to my life. My brother was screaming all the way in excitement (so opposite me).

    Yes I'm such a scardy cat. Seriously I like Mystic Manor's ride more!!! No more wild rides for me! 

    stay tune for part 3 of my day 1 episodes
    (whahhaa??? so much stories)

    There's many more stories to tell but let's leave Disneyland day stories behind because the next episode PART 3 I will be sharing about Disneyland night "bedtime" stories! Seriously at night Disneyland is not over yet because there's plenty of places to have dinner, enjoy the romantic scenery and finally the long awaited FIREWORKS at Sleeping Beauty castle which happens everyday at night.
