  • The Banjaran Hotsprings and Spa Ipoh Review


    this is my 4th time here! still love this Lil' heaven

    Did you know there's this heavenly hot springs retreat 2 hours away from Kuala Lumpur called The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat? Yes I'm not kidding and I have been to this sanctuary to escape my city life 4 times since I saw the advertisement in The Star Newspaper back in 2010. It is an ideal place to come to relax and switch off from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A sanctuary that creates the stress-free environment to forget about all of life's worries. If you need to get away from everything and treat yourself for a few days or a weekend then I recommend Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat as the perfect choice of destination for you. I felt as if I was in a little slice of paradise only a couple of hours from my doorstep - ask yourself how many other places do you know that can offer this?.

    Cloud 9 Blanc De Whitening Review (Instant Whitening Cream)


    Cloud 9 Blanc De White Whitening Cream 50 ml

    So I have this huge crush on Korean beauty products like forever.. and recently the obsession became seriously unhealthy. I have been spending a lot of time on my.althea.kr or althea.kr checking out their products, be it new arrivals or the trendy items they feature. What's trendy items? Well in short it just means the latest / coolest / sexiest / hottest K-Beauty must tries from Korea. Althea is technically in Gangnam, Seoul, Korea and that made them the leader in bringing in K-Beauty products for shoppers to try in Malaysia. All products from Althea is original, if you think you're unhappy with that fact you can get a 30-days unconditional refund back by emailing help@althea.kr.

Already they have the best prices on Korean beauty products in the market for Malaysia and today they rolled out an additional Merdeka 15% off their top 10 best selling items.

    Beauty Day Out with Beauty Guide Malaysia


    say hello to this cute guy from Beauty Guide!
    (I want to bring him back!!!)

    Today I'm going to share about a new online beauty and wellness platform called Beauty Guidewwww.beautyguide.com.my that allows users to find out information and reviews about beauty, spa and wellness services in Malaysia. They claim to be the first of it's kind to provide such a platform. I have seen other sites of the same but perhaps not in totality because Beauty Guide covers 4 segments - Beauty, Spa & Wellness, Skincare and Feature Interviews. You can find :
    • reviews from real clients (is there fake clients?)
    • e-magazine on beauty trends
    • advise, tips and guidance from beauty industry professionals (blog)
    • information about beauty (salons / treatments / topics)
    It is a place where you can read about everything about beauty (head to toe), drop and read reviews, share information, and well it's like the "yellow page" for beauty services in Malaysia.

    Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Pack Review


    my top 10 K-Beauty must have - Egg Mousse Pack

    This is a quickie review on sharing about one of my top ten Korean beauty products must buy from my experience of using and exploring Korean skincare / cosmetic products. I first discovered this when Too Cool For School launched in Malaysia few years back and bought it for RM66.70/100ml now it's about RM80? and TCFS has pulled out from Malaysia so it's harder to repurchase. The cute packaging caught my eye, I'm a sucker for all things cute and interesting and so far the coolest beauty products comes from Japan and Korea.
    A facial pack is different from a facial mask. Packs are setting masks while Masks are non-setting masks which takes time to dry. Packs are instant because it's made to be absorb fast into your skin to give instant results. Most of the time packs deliver nutrients while cleaning impurities, while masks are to combat dryness. There are many types of mask in the market - gel mask, clay mask, sheet mask, etc. For the egg mousse pack, it deep cleanses to remove impurities thus brightening and smoothing your face. It has nutrients to feed your skin making it soft / moisturise. 

    Marks & Spencer Rose Deodorant (Alcohol Free) Review


    one of my favourite deodorant to speak

    The final review from my shopping trip down Marks & Spencer's beauty corner where I got shocked from seeing the prices. Not shock from it being expensive, but it's really affordable that I can't believe my eyes. We know anything from the U.K would be priced to the nines but not for Marks & Spencer's beauty line. I picked up my favourite deodorant, the Rose Anti-Perspirant Roll-On (Floral Collection) at RM21.90 / 50ml (it's cheaper during sale). I'll explain why it's my favourite :)

    3 reasons why this is my favourite all-time deodorant to use:

    Reason #1 - Alcohol Free
    Reason #2 - Rose Scented
    Reason #3 - Last All Day Long

    Fresh Blooms Every Thurdays


    Tammy's balcony is now blooming fabulous

    This week's blooms is from Bloom This. I wanted to romance myself for a change so I subscribed to a weekly/ month's subscription with a 10% discount code I received. It's RM176.00 for 4 deliveries every Thursday. The flowers will be random every week, delivered fresh by a courier. What I love about Bloom This is the flowers aren't just any el cheapo blooms you find out there. They put in a mix of wilds, premium blooms that you would never buy yourself. I figure with my 10% discount code, I'll be getting a deal out of this and fresh blooms for my Ikea vase that I bought every week.

    Last month, Bath and Body Works launched their newest addition to their Signature Collection called “Love and Sunshine” that’s guarantee to make you smile just like their tagline “Smell the Happy”. The fresh and playful fragrance is a bright, happy blend of the juiciest fruits, brightest blooms and most cheerful cirtrus.

    LA MAISON DE SENTEURS Gardenia Rose Body Wash Review


    Gardenia Rose Body Wash 200ml RM35

    Part two of my Marks & Spencer beauty haul (part one was the 3-in-1 body, room & linen fragrance mist). I decided to split my beauty hauls into parts just like Lord of The Rings. Depending on my mood actually, but I am determine to finish all three product reviews this week. It so happens today was the last squeeze on my Marks & Spencer Gardenia Rose Body Wash. I showers and make bubble baths with this product when I am in a romantic mood.



    lights camera action

    Last Thursday was epic, no legendary. That's what Barney Stinson would say if he attended the grand launching of NARS latest boutique at Mid Valley in a star studded party at Mid Valley Megamall. The party was held right smacked in the middle of the mall, with lights, canap├ęs, free flow of champagne and drinks for invited guests made up of stars, celebrities, media and vips. Anyone who is anybody would be here. It was the party of the century which NARS has always put up a good party. One of the best from my experience.

    Marks & Spencer 3 in 1 Body, Room & Linen Spray in Honeysuckle Review


    capturing the fragrance of an English country garden

    My love for fragrances don't stop just at perfumes. I am also in love with room sprays so a recent shopping trip down Marks & Spencer, 1 Utama got me excited when I stumble upon their new collection called the Honeysuckle under the Flora Collection for 3-in-1 Body, Room & Linen Spray RM49. I also bought their popular deodorant and a bath & shower gel, all for roughly RM100.00. The scent matches my room potpourri of roasted chestnuts which reminds me of Christmas. I can't believe it's already August. What happened to my year? *slaps face*. While I am excited that my favourite month is nearing I am not excited about being a year older again *cries*.

    Guerisson 9-Complex Horse Oil Review

     current fave face & body moisturiser

    I’ve been hearing all about the Guerisson 9-Complex Horse Oil from friends and as part of my work, I was researching on why Horse Oil has become one of the popular must buy when you travel to Korea. Why? Here’s some idea:
    • Long-lasting Moisture
    • Wrinkle-reducing
    • Whitening
    • Skin protector
    • Skin soother
    • Fades marks
    • Repairs damaged skin
