  • Christmas at Melvita 1 Mont Kiara Eco-Friendly Concept Store


    Melvita KLCC has moved to 1 Mont Kiara!

    Did you know that Melvita KLCC has relocated to 1 Mont Kiara recently? It's a pity though, I think 1 Mont Kiara is a bit quiet in my humble opinion. Nevertheless I dropped by Melvita 1 Mont Kiara to have a look with my photographer Jeremy because I heard this newly relocated store is Melvita Malaysia's one of a kind eco-friendly concept store. Jeremy who is an avid skincare junkie is super happy to come along with me to see what Christmas goodies Melvita has to offer this festive season.

    I got the Goldern L'or Bio RM255 set for Christmas
    (check out the Christmas gifts on Melvita's website)

     wanted to buy the glowing L'or Bio RM99 (worth RM290)
    BUT IT'S SOLD OUT! *cries*

    would prefer to get the floral water set
    (it's one of their best sellers)

    if you have money to splurge, there's always the gifts above RM200!

    Melvita Christmas Gift Sets for all budget range!

    welcome to the eco-friendly concept store!
    (filled with Christmas gifts choices)

    Christmas gifts ranging from RM100 to above RM200

    very woody, with honey combs features on the wall

    Melvita's 100% natural beauty oil for face, body & hair

    the tree, a symbol of Melvita's eco-concept store stands proud

    Jeremy checks out the beauty oils
    (Melvita's best sellers)

    the eco-green recycling program at this store

    The new store encourages customers to bring back their empties for their eco-program "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle" to make the world a better place to live in. If you're a regular Melvita customer who bring back empties and restock your skincare at this store, you'll get a "Thank You" gift set worth RM109.

    Fall, Dance & Get Up Again

    let it all go, dance your heart out

    Life's lesson is always the hardest to learn. Just when you thought you have survive the greatest hurt in your life. Life comes back haunting you with another lesson. I asked myself why is this happening to me. Did I deserve all this? Why did I believe so easily? Was it all a dream? It would be easier to believe it was all a dream and nothing was real. My question, why did you do all that, make me believe it was real and then leave me in tears.

    I know it has been an emotional ride this year for me. Readers, you have not seen me open up myself so much about my life, though still vaguely indescribable I am beginning to be more human than ever. This song - Sia Chandelier, is dedicated to all the women who has been hurt through one way or another. Let the hurt go, be strong, dance all your might and leave it all behind.

    After all life's lessons are the hardest. If you survive it, you will survive anything. Including yourself. Merry Christmas.

    Party girls don't get hurt
    Can't feel anything, when will I learn?
    I push it down, push it down

    I'm the one "for a good time call"
    Phone's blowin' up, ringin' my doorbell
    I feel the love, feel the love

    1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
    1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
    1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink

    Throw 'em back 'til I lose count

    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
    I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
    Like it doesn't exist
    I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

    But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
    Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
    Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
    Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
    On for tonight

    Sun is up, I'm a mess
    Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
    Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

    1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
    1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink
    1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, drink

    Throw 'em back 'til I lose count

    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
    I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
    Like it doesn't exist
    I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

    But I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
    Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
    Help me, I'm holding on for dear life, won't look down, won't open my eyes
    Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight
    On for tonight

    On for tonight
    'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
    Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight
    On for tonight
    On for tonight
    'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
    'Cause I'm just holding on for tonight
    Oh, I'm just holding on for tonight
    On for tonight
    On for tonight

    Wish List: SK-II Christmas Sets & Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence


    iconic SK-II facial treatment essence gets a new look!

    Did anyone see the latest SK-II commercial featuring the limited edition artist collaboration bottle design for their best seller - facial treatment essence? Dam it's so artistic the introduction of dance of the language of flowers. You can feel the art and beauty in every move. Bet the die hard SK-II wants to get their hands on one of these limited edition collection designs. There's four designs, each with a different flower to represent a meaning. It's the first time SK-II release such designs so it's like a must get! If I had to choose, I want Passion: Red Tulips. The men's design looks really manly... quite attractive imho.

    The Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence 215ml Design & Meaning:

    Passion: Red Tulips
    For the woman who pursues excellence and lives life to the fullest, in this design, Facial Treatment Essence is invigorated with a lively bloom of tulips that symbolize vitality and dynamism. Petals adorn the bottle in bold, energetic red strokes – the very expression of a woman’s passion.

    Elegance: Yellow Freesia
    The warm yellow hues of the freesia dress up the bottle in this rendition of the Facial Treatment Essence. Exquisitely beautiful, the freesia’s subtle scent and graceful appearance are the perfect metaphor for a woman’s elegance. 

    Compassion: Purple Hydrangea
    Selected for its symbolic representation of appreciation and gratitude, the enchantingly captivating hydrangea is stamped onto the Facial Treatment Essence bottle. The soft budding petals coupled with slight variations of colours add an air of mystery to the design, the best gift for a thoughtful friend who always has you in her mind.

    Wisdom: Green Cypress (For Men)
    Deep-rooted in strength and eternity, the green cypress climbs stylishly around the bottle in this limited edition SK-II MEN Facial Treatment Essence. The intricate pattern of overlapping leaves forms a thoughtful and cool image, making this the ultimate gift of wisdom for the man in your life.

    watch this video :D so awesome wei the dance
    Borne from a passionate belief in empowerment through transformation, this season’s festive collaboration sees SK-II supporting the talents of emerging artist, Po-Chih Huang. To capture the transformational nature of beauty inherent in flowers, Po-Chih Huang spent over four months scanning hundreds of them – pointedly shifting their positions during the process to bring out natural movement and dynamism. After working on over 10,000 scans he created, Po-Chih Huang unveiled the series of designs for the Limited Edition Facial Treatment Essence line. Each is portrait of beauty, richly textured and multi-dimensional – perfectly capturing the essence and life changing power that SK-II’s promise of everlasting beauty holds.

    Retail Therapy: Transitions Signature™ lenses


    oh my eyes *squint squint*

    My Christmas retail therapy continues with me wanting anything that's an upgrade to whatever I have. After getting a new pair of shades from Malaya Optical, I also gotten a new pair of frames to be fitted with the latest Transitions® Signature™ lenses. My old pair, if anyone remembers was the beautiful Tiffany frame with shade changing Transition lenses. Read my post about it here to find out what's Transition lenses. Being kiasu (scare to lose) I want everything latest, like following fashion trend, eye wear and lenses also got trend okay!.

    I know everyone loves my signature over sized frames and ask me not to change but I needed one that looks more "work" worthy. You know one that I could wear to meetings and people won't think I'm some blogger or college student. A professional one and I'll fit it with Transitions® Signature™ lenses.

    Transitions® Signature™ lenses introduces Chromea7™ photochromic technology

    So I did some googling and saw this tv commercial on Transitions® Signature™ lenses. It's their newest, most responsive adaptive lenses. Read below for the introduction about it and the advantages. The best part is now I can choose to have it in black or brown shade changing colours. Read here about the Chromea7™ photochromic technology. You can also play the virtual viewer to see the shades changing according to different scenarios.

    Fully clear indoors – but outside, they’re more responsive than ever thanks to our exclusive Chromea7™ photochromic technology. They are more reactive to UV light so they get darker in more conditions, including bright sun, partially sunny, cloudy, and everything in between. They also adapt to indirect light – such as light reflected from buildings, cars, and many other surfaces. They continuously adapt to changing light so they’re always exactly the shade you need them to be.
    • Fully clear indoors and at night
    • Fast fade back speed
    • Block 100% of UVA & UVB rays
    • Fit any prescription and frame
    • Suitable for any age including children
    choosing a frame to fit my new lenses

    I went to Focus Point 1 Utama since they have Transitions® Signature™ lenses after checking http://www.transitions.com/en-my/where-to-buy.  I knew they were having sale on branded frames. I looked over Prada, Coach, Tom Ford and then fell in love with Burberry. It was simple, stylish and just so Burberry (I love Burberry!). Perfect simple frame to own for my eye wear collection. It retails for over RM1,200.00 but with the 30% discount, I'm only paying RM878.00 for it. As for the Transitions® Signature™ lenses, the price varies from shop to shop so inquire within.

    so I bought the frame and it comes with a certificate of authenticity

    it's made of titanium *level up yay*

    my next retail therapy is to fit this pink cute frames with lenses as well

    Yeah I'm the Burberry kinda girl and being atas also means I want the best lenses to be fitted if I have the money. This is yet another Christmas gift to myself because of the series of unfortunate events that happened in 2014. Which explains why I am so broke this month due to my retail therapy "treatment".  Well, I'll be continuing my story once I get my frames back after it's fitted with the new Transitions® Signature™ lenses. Can't wait to see how different it is now with the Chromea7™ photochromic technology. Anyhow if anyone is interested to find out more about Transition lenses check out their website to read up http://www.transitions.com/en-my.

    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.

    Buying Boxes & Printing Sticker Labels in Malaysia

    labels for your presents?

    This month I almost wanted to buy a gun and shoot myself in the head. I've been multi-tasking everything using two Macbooks on my bed while listening to Spotify. One of the challenges I face was to prepare 100 beauty boxes for my community's Christmas Beauty Box Review Project. First I am most grateful to the 10 brands who love and support The Butterfly Project community. Many thanks to them! I shall reveal who they are in my next post when I unbox the beauty box for all to see. How do one prepare a beauty box? quite simple. I'm doing the most basic due to lack of funds. Here are the things you need:
    1. boxes = google for wholesale boxes Malaysia
    2. labels = print / stamp / diy / customise box printing



    Wonder Jelly brand strikes again!

    I can guess how old you are just by looking at your hand. Scary isn't it? That's how I guess people's age nowadays, it works well with women in Malaysia because majority don't take care of their skin other than their face. Me included *guilty as charged*. Seriously, I'm not kidding. The texture, colour, pigmentation or ageing spots no thanks to the sun can easily be picked up and roughly measure the age that one has been walking under the sun. Most of the time I am right :D haha...

    I'm diligently putting on oils, moisturisers, masks on my hands in hopes to save what's left of my skin *sob sob*. Imagine how happy I am when I found out Vaseline has come up with a powerful new body serum range for under RM20!.

    P.S: The only thing I remember about Vaseline is their "Wonder Jelly" a.k.a the Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, launched in 1870 for cuts and burns amongst construction workers. The "Wonder Jelly" is also often used by beauty junkies for beauty fixes. Who don't know the emergency lip gloss recipe? mixing vaseline with your lipstick *kekeke*.
