  • Is Gucci Guilty for being Not Guilty?


    the Gucci Guilty couple

    One of my most reviewed fragrance is the Gucci Guilty. I owned both for her and for him perfumes in this line. I also have the diamond limited edition. This is one of the perfumes I wear when I'm feeling dangerously sexy. I'm talking about going to clubbing, letting loose, drinking with the girls or boys. However, a little goes a long way for this gorgeous gold bottled perfume, it's rather strong for me hence, it's not a perfume for office or day time. It's definitely a night time perfume for me. Very luxurious, very sensuous.

    That being said, I love how Gucci Guilty (Her) dies down to a warm huggable warmth of amber musk after half a day. It does smell powdery and warm, after the initial burst of strong spicy floral scent. Kinda like how a party starts and ends. I think this lovely fragrance when you're cold. That being said, please avoid wearing this to non-air conditioned places.

    Gucci Guilty For Her spicy floral

    Gucci Guilty Pour Homme - floral fruity

    I gave Baby G one for Christmas, he wears it to smell fresh on a hot day. You know how Malaysia weather is hot 24/7. If we were to go out shopping or travelling, he'll wear this to smell light and fresh all day long. The sillage is poor for me, I could only smell him when I hug him or get close. Though it does last long for Baby G, the scent died down to a very light faint white floral scent.

    The bottle is masculine and elegant looking. Its body is made of heavy glass with 3/4  wrapped in cold metal just like the cap. Like Gucci Guilty (Her) you can see the embossed, metallic Gucci sign, transparent in the middle. Her's is a square glass bottle with rounded edges, wrapped from the back and front in a gold metallic body while the sides show the glass transparency of gold liquid till the bottom. It's like holding gold. No hiding how luxurious she is.

     The #GuiltyNotGuilty Gucci Guilty 2016 release

    are you ready to watch this #guiltynotguilty commercial? 

    dangerous guilty IMHO! Not for Asians lol

    FYI, Gucci Guilty released a video that's kinda on the taboo edge of Asian boundaries last year.. Alright maybe taboo to me, maybe not to you? It's kinda scandalous, I'm not even sure if I should show it! I guess their branding of Gucci Guilty is showing how not guilty they are. The video opens in the dreamy, mysterious city of Italy, Vernice. with a story of three young people on an obviously not guilty, intimate trip together. Jared Leto as the anarchy male and two almost identical models Julia Hafstrom and Vera Van Erp. They prance around, play, and are comfortable being in each other's arm - girl guy or girl girl (I'm showing my shocked face here).

    You can get this from Gucci's fragrance counter new you. Here's the price list:

    Gucci's Gucci Guilty EDT (Her)
    - Top notes of pink pepper
    - Heart note of lilac
    - Base notes of patchouli and amber
    Gucci Guilty EDT 30ml RM239
    Gucci Guilty EDT 50ml RM301

    - Base notes of cedar wood and patchouli
    Gucci Guilty Pour Homme EDT 50ml RM236

    Banjaran Hotsprings Water Villas Review


    The Banjaran Hotspring Retreat's Water Villas

    If you're looking at Banjaran Hotsprings Ipoh, then you'll probably want to weigh your options against the two types of villas currently available for their guests. There's a third one coming up soon called the Lake Villas which from my last visit to Banjaran, found out that it's going to be ready this September or later, let's see how fast they can complete this new addition to retreat. The Lake Villas is named after a man-made lake that's being constructed as well. I couldn't peek through but I can clearly see the construction is going on at the end of the retreat.

    the plunge pool with lounging area 

    more compact but still private

    the bedroom - soft duck feather pillows king size bed

    Anyway, the current two types of accommodations are the Garden Villa 2,808 sq. ft and Water Villa 1,667 sq. ft. Through my stays here, the Garden Villa is the best one so far. It's bigger with its own plunge pool and garden jacuzzi. Even with the garden jacuzzi, there are two types, the Garden Hotsprings type, and the normal standard tile type.

    For the Water Villa, it's more compact but still private and beautiful with open air concepts in the villas itself. The jacuzzi is the normal standard type, just alongside the plunge pool which is smaller. You can't actually make a swim in here. With the Garden Villa, you can.

    The surroundings or view is different as well for the two villas. Garden Villas are surrounded by lush greenery and the lime cliffs. Possible monkey invasion as well because of the forest. The Water Villa is built on top of a man-made river, so it has a river canal view of the surroundings.

    Both unique in its own way, you'll still enjoy quiet and private experience away from the city and people. When Banjaran opened, both villas were priced the same but now the Water Villas are much cheaper to book compared to the Garden Villas. I have no idea about the upcoming Lake Villas though.

    For more information check out Banjaran Hotspring's website here on the villa type. Read my review of my stay in the Garden Villa here

    What's New in Skincare? Comfort Zone Hydramemory Range


    could this be my next skincare obsession?

    Today I sent Baby G off to an Italian skin care brand launch. The brand name is [ comfort zone ] which is quite strange for a brand name to be like this. Anyway, they were launching their latest hydration range called the Hydramemory for hydration. The range uses advanced science based conscious formula with the finest natural-origin active ingredients. Founded by Dr Davide Bollati who's a pharmacist and cosmetic chemist on a mission to create the complete beauty system using science. Hence the brand's tagline Skin Science Soul.

    While reading their brochure and press release, it's full of explanation about the human skin and water content. In other words, they have science the **** out of this.

    Skipping this through, I tend not to blog about things that don't interest me or aren't worth while to talk about, hence you see the lack of product review updates on my blog. BUT this particular brand has caught my attention when I google to read what they're products are for. The prices caught my attention, it was in hundreds. Pretty expensive in my opinion but there has to be a reason right?

    The second thing was the label of 24hr double hydration. Now hydration is something I strongly believe makes a difference in skincare. No matter how old you are, we need hydration. It keeps our skin healthy, protected, and youthful. The ingredient Hyaluronic Acid (H.A) is not a stranger when one talks about hydration. Hada Labo (affordable Japanese skincare brand) was my first encounter of H.A and my last was falling for DocLab Hyaluronic Acid Face Ampoules (Korean). DocLab is pretty pricey. Each box was RM138 for only 5 ampoules. You have to use one daily. You can like me, alternate the days. They definitely worked but I couldn't afford using it every day. After 5 boxes, I stopped.

     the Hydramemory System
    free from silicones, parabens, mineral oils,
    up to 99% natural-origin ingredients

    When Baby G came back with the PR products just now, I jumped at him to give it to me. I couldn't wait to try them. I was given the Hydramemory Essence and Hydramemory Eye Gel. I couldn't be bothered with eye gels until I tested it on my hand. Holy Cow, the eye gel wasn't gel based. It was water based. When the product comes out, it looks like a gel but once you apply it on the skin it turns watery! Like water! I have not tried eye products like this unless it was an eye serum. It came attached with a metal eye massager, and when I glide it over my eye bags, it felt perfect! The metal massager shaped like your index finger rolls over the skin naturally. That really felt different from the usual ball shaped eye massager.

    The next, I was disappointed because it was just an essence. I thought I would be trying the 24hr cream gel which was what I read online. It's okay, let just give this a chance I said to myself. HOLY COW, the essence dripped off my hands like the fast & the furious. I was caught off guard.

    WAIT what kind of essence is this?! I thought essences are mostly rich, sticky or heavier but this was super light weight, I felt nothing when I apply it. Heck, it's like the water from my pipe. Not that kind of pipe, the real sink pipe. So watery, omg. I love watery products. Makes you feel like you're bathing your skin in hydration. I think I'm in love with this one.

    I poured some on my palm and test it on my cheeks. It was quickly absorbed and my cheeks immediately feel soft and plump. Oh **** I'm doomed. I haven't even used yet and already I am falling in love with the first impressions. Most Korean essences (toners) are like watery like that.

    Hydramemory Eye Gel & Hydramemory Essence

    I took out the press release and started reading. It says the Hydramemory Essence is a concentrated fragrance-free solution, as light as a toner but as powerful as a serum to help create a stronger, healthier and younger-looking skin. The essence provides immediate hydration action, inducing softness and radiance to the skin with Hydramemory's active ingredients boosted with 11 hydrating activators in a natural base of tamarind, and the natural components of the skin's hydrating factors (NMF complex).  Suitable for all skin types, 99% natural-origin ingredients, retails for RM288.

    The Korean Essence a.k.a "Skins"
    source credit: Althea Korea

    Essence first came about from Korea. Like a toner, it's used after cleansing but it's not like the western toners (astringents/drying) and more to remove whatever residues left from cleansing. Korean "toner" are called skins. Since Koreans practice double cleansing already, their "toners" are more like a skin care step, to nourish or hydrate the skin. Bringing ingredients deep into the skin.

    The popular 7 skins method, is how Koreans use essences 7 times (layering by patting on the skin 7 times) to effectively hydrate their skin.

    The Hydramemory Eye Gel brings abut relief to tired eyes and defends the eye contour against age markers. Mediterranean Apple Extract is added to reduce dark circles and puffiness. The metal applicator ensures a pleasant and functional application for a refreshing and anti-fatigue action. 98% natural-origin ingredients, retails for RM228.

    I'm really impressed by this two product, so impressed that I am writing this down before I forget. I will be using this for a week min. before I could say anything. Before I end, I want to properly introduce the other products in this range and the active ingredients used so anyone who's interested to know more about this revolutionary Italian skincare range could do some reading and check it out for themselves.

    The Active Ingredients: 

    Natural Extracts
    An exclusive blend of natural extract delivers the mechanism of double hydration. Apple, lentil and watermelon rind are extracted as functional molecules essential for restoration of the skin's barrier. The blend stimulates Aquaporins to facilitate the transport of water to the heart of the cell and promotes optimal diffusion of water within the different layers of the skin.

    Biomimetic Fragments of Hyaluronic Acid
    Replenish moisture into the dermis and epidermis layers of the skin. It also has the ability to empower the hyaluronic acid in our bodies to create effective water reserves for the skin.

    Moringa Oil from Certified Fair Trade Cultivations
    Also known as "Miracle Tree", is rich in omega 3, 6, and 9, Vitamin E and phytosterols. It reduces Trans Epidermal Water Loss and promotes antioxidant action.

    The Hydramemory range comprises of an essence, eye gel and a mask, along with a serum, cream gel, and cream. All these could be found here at the [ comfort zone ] website. They have other ranges too but I have a feeling this is going to be good because everyone needs hydration! These products are also available at over 20 beauty salons nationwide.

    My Journey Into Essential Oils


    believing in the power of oils

    My latest obsession after Voluspa candles is ESSENTIAL OILS! Blame it on my increasing paranoia to reverse signs of ageing =_= !!! I need to look youthful and healthy too and one of the ways I'm exploring today is using essential oils. So I have been reading online about the benefits, the differences between organic and non-organic essential oils, which essential oils would be good as a start and which could help improve your health and beauty!

    types of essential oils & its benefits

    What are Essential Oils?
    Essential Oils are concentrated essences extracted from flowers, fruit peel, berries, leaves, plants, etc. Used in aromatherapy, natural remedies and are therapeutic.  The benefits include improving physical ailments, promote emotional well-being and quality of life. Read 101 Ways to Use Essential Oils.

    How To Use Essential Oils?
    • Massage
    • Diffuser
    • Shower / Bath
    • Inhalation
    You cannot apply it directly on your skin (too potent, might cause an allergic reaction) and must use it with a carrier oil, lotion, bath, or shower gel. Also do not take it internally (make sure u double triple check this with the brand first as we don't know how safe it is!) and if you're thinking of using it for children, please read up the dosage! Essential oils are like medicine, there are dosages to follow so you do not mix and used too much! (allergies, etc).

    Essential Oils Facts:
    • highly flammable 
    • stored away from direct light/sun
    • the bottle is either dark/brown/blue
    Carrier Oils (base oil/veg oil) are used to dilute essential oils. They help carry the oil into the skin. Applying essential oils directly onto the skin without carrier oil would not help and might instead harm your skin due to its potency. Here are popular carrier oils:
    • Sweet Almond Oil
    • Jojoba Oil
    • Coconut Oil
    • Olive Oil
    • Argan Oil
    • Rose Hip Oil
    What's A Good Brand?
    With so many companies out there promoting that they're the best, I had to read up reviews and company information to determine if they indeed what they claim to be:
    • Pure
    • Natural
    • Therapeutic grade/Organic
    Of course, essential oils are not cheap depending on how they were produced which could be from seed to seal (from seedlings to farm to processing the oils - Young Living), wildcrafted (means from the wild, which would yield better quality oils compared to farmed ones), organic or not (but essential oils from what I read are generally free of pesticides because the molecules are smaller and able to pass through the process). Be wary of ones that are just synthetic oils, fragrance oils, aroma solubles mostly used for diffusers so they're cheaper than 100% pure organic oils.

    Three ways Essential Oils are made:
    • Steam distillation (woody/robust plants e.g lavender)
    • Extraction (delicate flowers e.g jasmine)
    • Expressed (soft fruits e.g lemon/grapefruit)
    Best brands I read online, consistently points to:
    • Young Living
    • DoTerra
    • Mountain Rose Herbs

    Young Living - How To Use Essential Oils

    I do recommend reading this article! I liked how the author has gathered some brands and rate them according to her search, price and reviews. If you're like me diving into the world of essential oils, do some reading, comparison and research on the types of oils you need. Google Popular Essential Oils and you'll find many articles on this topic alone. I'm currently reading Natural Living Ideas this as it provides pictures and how it's made.

    To date, I bought many types of essential oils but never really go in depth about the pricing vs use. I think the ones I have are not 100% pure natural essential oils :( but luckily I didn't use it topically for myself, it was just for my diffuser. Some I bought from visiting spas e.g pillow mists, massage oils, headache ointments. I do have two bottles of Melvita's L'Or Bio extraordinary oil, Linden Leave's rose oil and a couple of massage oils (these are blends).

    So let's start fresh! Yesterday I bought myself my 1st essential oil Frankincense from Neal's Yard Remedies. It was freaking expensive, 10ml for RM165 (why did I even pay for it argh). Why does imported beauty brands in Malaysia has to be so freaking expensive?

    the benefits of Frankincense Oil
    (this poster got my attention at Neal's Yard Remedies)

    I didn't think it would be that expensive and they didn't even give me the 10% discount (store opening) well maybe because during that time the oil was sold out so I put my details to be updated if the oil was restocked again. According to the BA, it's always sold out which got my attention. Being a hoarder, the word sold out is like magic to my ears. Still regretting I paid so much for an essential oil, I went online to check out prices from Mysale.my and one brand called Art Naturals sold the same essential oil at RM95 for 120ml size (facepalm). I'll put it to comparison when I get my 2nd Frankincense oil.

    art natural essential oils

    Now I tried looking up information for this brand but couldn't find much. A site did review that they sell 100% pure natural essential oil so for me, I guess why not. I bought the following essential oils for my diffuser which I'm proud to say not bad for the price!
    • 100% Pure Essential Oil - Frankincense 4oz/120ml @ RM95
    • Pure & Natural Magnesium Oil 12oz/355ml @ RM59
    • Top 16 Essential Oil Set 10ml each @ RM89
    Now the reason why I decided to start off with Frankincense Essential Oil is that besides being linked as a natural cancer healing remedy, it's also to said useful to reduce wrinkles, pigmentations, moles, warts, boost the immune system, relieve chronic stress, and many more health benefits. Read here.

    it's said Frankincense Oil is the King of Essential Oils

    Then, of course, I wanted to explore more so I got the top 16 essential oil set from Art Naturals. At RM89 why not! It's a bargain that I can explore with my trusty diffuser. The set is comes with the following essential oils 10ml each - Bergamot, Cinnamon Leaf, Eucalyptus, Frankincense, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Lime, Patchouli, Peppermint, Pine, Rosemary, Sweet Orange, Tangerine, and Tea Tree oils. Use these pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils to help tackle common ailments, boost mood and scent your home and office with aromatherapy. Create your own nontoxic household cleaners, skin, hair and body care products. The possibilities are endless with this carefully-selected, signature collection.

    an example of Magnesium Oil Benefit

    Then I got the Magnesium Oil because I read that topical use of Magnesium is better than pill popping. Magnesium was one of the supplements recommended to me by Blackmores during my health check for stress management. It's from vegetables and bananas which I rarely eat so I am going to find another way to have Magnesium in my body.

    When my haul comes next month (it takes a month from Mysale) I'll do an unboxing review okay! Sigh does this post sound long winded? I tried to make it as simple as it can be already. Still, a newbie here so whoever who has any info to share please do leave a comment!

    Maze Afternoon Hi-Tea Review


    Maze Hi-Tea Set RM78++

    I enjoy a good hi-tea and one recently popped out of nowhere called Maze at Menara Lien Hoe, (Tropicana). I thought this must be the strangest place to have hi-tea in. To be honest, I have never heard of Maze until last Saturday but granted they just launched a couple of months ago. I am sure the word will get out, especially when you see how pretty their hi-teas are! Make no excuses not to sip tea and chitchat because this is one place you should visit at least once, to get the grand English coffee and tea salon feel and should you love gin, this place turns into a gin parlour at night just like Superman, normal by day, superhero by night.

    So what is Maze? They're Malaysia's first Gin Parlour by night and Coffee Saloon by day. Don't play play as the locals would say because, at Maze, there are over 100 Gin labels from all over the world to be discovered. Flip through their Gin menu and you'll be able to order from bespoke cocktails to imported Gins.

    what do you think of the setting?

    The ambience? An English splendour of mix and match furnishing to make you feel like you have been transported away from Menara Lien Hoe to another world. Quiet, private and cosy elegance, there's something in the air that is indescribable, a kinda je ne sais quoi feel about it. Divided into two sections, velvet and leather, there's a place for His & Hers soiree. You have got to see this for yourself. I knew this place has taste when two of the best premium brands out there are found here as well. An eccentric lamp from Thin & Bold and desserts from La Rose Noire (which supplies to 5-star hotels).

    Recipe for a tea party: One cup of love, Two pots of tea,
    And a handful of friends. To make the moment sweet!

    “A woman is like a teabag. You never know how strong she is until you put her in hot water.”
    –Eleanor Roosevelt

    Now, I'm not here to talk about Gin. I'm not a fan of it but hi-tea's, yes! I've been to my fair share of luxury hi-teas and I would pay for one that has the best of both worlds - decent afternoon tea & a setting fit for it. Like a fine wine, a high tea is ideally enjoyed slowly at your own leisure savouring every taste, every moment with great company. Why do you think hi-teas last for hours? Well, normally 3pm - 6pm. That must be the hour of chit chat. Don't worry Maze's 12pm  - 6pm daily.

    For RM78++ the hi-tea set comes in bite size sweet and savoury delicacies plus two hot beverages. TWG tea of your choice (12 to choose from) or long black/latte. The hi-tea's are presented in either one of the three types available, two of which come with its own fairy lights! (oh so twinkling romantic). I don't know the names so I'm just going to come up with my own - the flower lamp,  the secret garden, and the retro bicycle.

    Maze Hi-Tea Set Menu RM78++

    Smoke Duck Canape,
    Mediterranean Sandwich
    Smoke Salmon Sandwich

    Butter croissant with Salted Egg Yolk Dip
    Peanut Butter Danish
    Mixed Fruit Tart
    Dark Hazelnut Tart
    Passion fruit Meringue Tart
    Macaroon (Assorted Flavours)

    With 2 cups of:
    TWG Tea or Long Black/Latte
    (12 types of TWG tea available)

    *pork and lard free.

    this place is so Instragrammable I kid you not

    the flower lamp

    the secret garden dome

    the retro bicycle

    each set comes with sweet & savoury delicacies

    smoke duck, smoke salmon & grilled mushroom toast

    the tarts & macaroons are hotel grade desserts!

    my favourite? The smoke duck canapes!

    life is like a cup of tea, to be filled to the brim & enjoyed with friends

    So each hi-tea set comes with a choice of two teas or long black/latte. I went for tea of course and was presented with a menu with TWG tea selection (my head went wah). They only have 12 types, so I choose my favourite which is the TWG Grand Wedding Tea. It's a festive TWG tea to celebrate life's momentous occasions (so fitting to the occasion right?). A black tea blended with sunflowers and breath-taking exotic fruits. It's not too fruity, only a hint of it.

    P.S: The waiters are so nice, they'll come offer refill of hot water for the tea. I drank like 5 cups and still, they kept coming. I hope they're genuinely attentive and friendly, and not because I super pretty right? (I'm kidding alright, I'm kidding).

    spotted the butterfly, this must be fated

    A hidden gem I would call this. Who knew you could find good hi-tea in Petaling Jaya? Right at the Tropicana residences with the up and coming Menara Lien Hoe. We got lost trying to find Maze and laughed at ourselves when we finally inquired from Chaze, (the ground floor restaurant) part of the M Group of outlets of which Maze is also under. Maze is inside Chaze on the first floor! So don't get lost. Strategically situated in between known established neighbourhoods, such as Bandar Utama & Aman Suria Damansara, Maze is only a mere 10 minute drive away from popular shopping malls 1 Utama and the Curve.

    Coffee Saloon by Day, Gin Haven by Night

    add-on Maze Signature Cocktails at RM26

    in the order of top left to right
    The Reviver, Love Potion, Sangria & Lemon Fizz

    The gin is strong in this one (pointing at Maze). As part of the "Gin" side of Maze, you can add-on their signature gin cocktails from the menu at RM26. There are 5 types to choose from which I will list below here. They use Gordon's, which is a London dry gin (standard) for Lemon-Gin Fizz, The Reviver and Sangria. Love Potion uses Fords and Sloe Gin is used in Slow and Steady. I would say my favorite is The Reviver because I love berries.

    Lemon-Gin Fizz RM28
    Gin, fresh lemon juice, fresh basil, egg white

    The Reviver RM35
    Gin, fresh lime juice, fresh black berries, elder flower

    Love Potion RM30

    The Butterfly Birthday Bag (Overview)


    The Butterfly Birthday Bag

    Last month, the Butterfly Project beauty & lifestyle blogger's community celebrated their 4th birthday with a pastel theme party at Hello Deer, Uptown PJ. Hello Deer was a party space above Wondermilk cafe (who happens to be the caterer as well). Unfortunately, Hello Deer party space will not be operating anymore starting July 2017 onwards. It's a pity because their space is just so adorable and cute. I was lucky to be able to rent the party package before they close.

    I'll review Hello Deer on my next free time because today is I'm going to introduce a pet project I'm proud of - The Butterfly Birthday Bag! Every year I would curate a beauty box for my community to review, it could be something simple, something fun, something meaningful. It will always have a theme in mind.

    The first beauty box I made was called the Travel Essential Bag 2013, it contains travel-friendly beauty products from sponsors that's useful for a holiday trip. At that time, 20 bags were given to butterflies on board the KTM ETS from KL Sentral to Ipoh.

    The second was the Butterfly Christmas Box 2014 worth RM500 for 100 butterflies at The Apartment Restaurant, Curve. That was the most memorable Butterfly Christmas party ever, with Edazz and Choy Peng singing in the middle of Curve. Strangers watching, amazed at what's going on. We even have two nice big turkey sponsored by The Apartment for our party!

    Then this year, I've decided to curate a birthday box, but with custom printed tote bag featuring our brand new butterfly logo. A symbol of our growth, from the playful and colourful to an elegant gold butterfly. I couldn't be any prouder that our community has lasted 4 years :) The party was thematic from the photobooth by GNG StudioBooth to the hand drawn chalkboard wall, food toppers, invitations, party poster & gift tag design by Kamibee a new party planner in town. I paid for the party package from Hello Deer with catering from Wondermilk. Prizes were given out to best birthday makeup and most creative social sharing thanks to sponsors NYX Malaysia and The Body Shop. Shall review the party the next time!

    Without further a due I present to you the 2017 beauty box theme Butterfly Birthday Bag filled with 18 beauty and lifestyle products from 13 supportive brands worth RM1,000.
