Fashion Friday : Mini Bags Dilemma


Assalamualaikum and hello everyone. This post has been in my draft for months and somehow I did not managed to finish it up for some odd reasons (which I have NO idea why). I was scrolling through my draft posts and saw this, totally forgotten about it. The reason why I created this post in the first place is because I was deciding on which handbag to get for my wedding 'hantaran'. But to tell you the truth, I already made my decision and the handbag is with my fiancé right now! *hahahaha*


I wanted a mini bag because it would look cute on my 'dulang hantaran'. *hehehe* NO lah, I wanted a mini bag because that's the type of bag that I love right now. Since I got my Rebecca Minkoff M.A.C, I have been using it non-stop! I prefer a smaller bag nowadays because I'm just so tired of bringing heavy handbags all the time. I don't want to be bringing so many stuff in my bag because to be honest, the bigger my bag is, the more stuff I will chuck in and the heavier it would be! So the solution is, use a smaller handbag and trust me, you will only put in your essential since you are forced to bring a small amount of stuff. Okay enough of my rambling, lets take a look at my top 3 choices for a mini bag, shall we? ^_^ By the way, they are not in a particular order. I freaking love all the 3 of them.

Oh hello there. The ever gorgeous Givenchy Antigona mini bag is to die for. There's something about this yellow bag drives me crazy. Boxy, structured and the size would be perfect for everyday use.  This bag exudes elegance and sophistication. The downside of this beautiful mini bag is the price tag. Why so expensive??? T_T

Ahhh the beautiful Phillip Lim Pashli Mini Satchel. It comes in all sorts of colours. But this particular one, an exclusive mini pashli in crosshatch embossed leather in the colour Ocean just took my breath away. I love how structured the design is, it makes the bag look so good and classy. I love that it comes with double top handles and also a strap so you can use it as a cross body or a shoulder bag. This colour would look great with any colour scheme of your outfit. The design is young and trendy, and formal at the same time. I love it, gorgeous! :) Click HERE for other colours.

The classy Louis Vuitton Alma BB in Damier Ebene. Ahhh, where can I even begin talking about you? I love the simple and classic design, it really makes me feel like a grown woman if I were to have this. The size of the bag is so adorable, petite and compact, just like me! *hahaha* Same goes with the Pashli and the Antigona bag, LV Alma BB has two top handles and also a strap that can be used as a shoulder bag or a cross body.  LV Alma BB comes in another 3 materials which are the Monogram Canvas, Leather EPI and Monogram Vernis.



All of the three mini bags has the same features. They are structured, sturdy,  has two top handles and a strap. You can basically get the idea that I am in love with structured bags. I would love to have all three of them but it that is quite ridiculous (even though I would get all if I'm a millionaire. *hehehe*) Can you guess which one did I choose? Let me know in the comment box below! :D

p/s : I know two of my blogger friends knew what I chose, so simpan rahsia okay? hahahah :P



Thanks for reading girls! :)

Kif Valentine Circle Live in Malaysia



Assalamualaikum and hello everyone! If you have been following my social media, you must have  noticed I uploaded something about Kif Valentine Circle Live in KL. Who is Kif Valentine? He is a Malaysian harmonica player who has been playing harmonica since the age of 15. He represented Malaysia in International Harmonica Competitions and managed to win numerous awards. Click HERE for more information on his achievements and awards. ^_^ Beside being a harmonica player, he is also an advertising model, brand ambassador, actor and also a song writer. He is now under the management of MENICA and is now known as an All Rounder Artist due to his talents. 




The concert is held at Mega Star Arena, Jalan Kuchai Lama on the 19th of November 2014. I have never been to that area before but luckily it's easy to find the venue. The purpose of 'KIF VALENTINE Circle Live in Malaysia' is to introduce harmonica music to our people and to let the general public understand and enjoy the beauty of harmonica. I personally have never been to a harmonica concert before and I was excited to experience since I know nothing about it. The stage decoration was amazing. From the colourful stage's lighting and the stage's LED effect, you know that this concert has been carefully planned out.

Started out with a cowboy themed performance.

Kif was playing 'Nothing's Gonna Change', which is one of my favourite songs.
Performance by guest performer, Magician Ken Woo.
He can rock the saxophone too!

During the concert, there was a special tribute to our MAS flight MH370. It is heartbreaking for us Malaysians to be experiencing this tragedy. Let's be strong together!

A special poem dedicated to MH370.


A special appearance by Virus Wu.


Well of course I'm not gonna leave you guys hanging without hearing some of Kif's rendition right? I captured some of his performance during the concert and to be honest I had a blast! He is a talented guy and I wish him all the best in his career. Enjoy! ^_^

Sexy Sunday Series | Bourjois Rouge Edition VELVET



Assalamualaikum and hello my love. Another Sunday, another Sexy Sunday Series! Today I am going to share with all of you Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick! I was invited to a small introduction of the latest lipstick with my other lovely blogger friends in their outlet in Sunway Pyramid. To be honest, I only had one Bourjois product which is the crayon lipstick but that did not go well to my liking. But of course as always, I am super pumped to try out any lip products and this Velvet formula from Bourjois really caught my eyes because I've heard people talking about it. 




The Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick is a highly pigmented liquid lipstick with a matte finish. It is a light-weight melting texture and gives you a velvety matte finish that feels comfortable on your lips as if you are not wearing anything on your lips. Even though these Velvet lipstick is a matte finish, don't worry it is not going to dry up your lips. There are 8 beautiful shades that's available now, they are : 


01 Personne Ne Rouge (Ultra intense red)
02 Frambourjoise (Red berry with pink tone)
03 Hot Pepper (Orangey red)
04 Peach Club (Pale orange)
05 Ole Flamingo (Deep pink with raspberry undertone)
06 Pink Pong (Fuchsia)
07 Nude-Ist (Rosewood nude)
08 Grand Cru (Dark burgundy)



PRICE
RM42.90


SIZE / WEIGHT
6.7ml


AVAILABILITY
Watsons and Bourjois Kiosk at Sunway Pyramid



06 Pink Pong. Such a pretty shade.
06 Pink Pong. I love it!

08 Grand Cru

I got to bring home 3 shades to try out, so please continue reading if you want to know how I feel about this lipstick!


The applicator is a doe-foot type which makes it easy to apply on the lips. 


The 3 shades that I got :

07 Nude-ist is a mauve-y, rosy nude that is perfect for those who loves nude lipstick. My lips but better (MLBB). I love it that it has this warm rosy tone to it and it certainly compliment my complexion.



05 Ole Flamingo is a deep pink with raspberry undertone to it. I would consider this shade as my pink berry lips. It's for those who likes a bit of both world (pink and berry) and not sure which one to get. This colour is bright and will definitely amped up your entire look!




03 Hot Pepper is a red lipstick with orange undertone. Personally I would go for red with brown or berry undertone. I don't think I look good in orange-y toned lipstick.  But I guess this shade is pretty ok, what do you think?

 




************************
MY FINAL THOUGHTS
************************

The first thing that makes me love this product is how light it feels on my lips. To be honest, I really feel like I'm not wearing anything on my lips. It's comfortable and not sticky at all. It sets well on the lips within 5 minutes and you will get a beautiful velvety matte finish. It has this scent which I'm not sure what it is but I kinda like it. It's a different kind of scent, a scent that I never experienced with other brands. The colours are highly pigmented except for one shade (among the 8 shades). I'm not sure which shade it was but there was one shade that is less pigmented. Other 7 colours are simply stunning. With one or 2 swipes, we can get a beautiful pigmented colour on our lips but hey I would definitely go in with 3 or 4 layers to get my desired pigmentation. Oh ya I don't need to apply  lip liners if I'm using this. Yes! The lasting power is amazing. Today, I applied the lipstick at 12.30 pm. I drank a glass of water around 3pm and it only left a tiny stain on my glass. Then at 5pm I had Nasi Ayam Penyet and Teh Sosro. I went to the washroom to check on my lipstick and yes, the colour is still there. Yes a lipstick stain that is pigmented, I must say.  It is quite surprising since Ayam Penyet is quite greasy as it is fried. So I didn't have to touch up my lips. Even though the lipstick is a matte finish, I do not experience any dryness on my lips. Now, I have two things that I need to let you girls know. Firstly, you really have to scrub or apply lip balm before applying this lipstick to get a smooth lips. This is because if you have dry lips, this lipstick will enhance your cracked lips and it will settle into the lines. Secondly, the lipsticks tend to bleed a little (darker colours) so just make sure to check your lips from time to time. But as an overall review, I love Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet because I am obsessed with matte lips and the colours are simply stunning. The selling point for me is the light-weight feel on my lips which I have not yet experienced with other brands before. ^_^



Thank you for reading girls, so are you going to try these lipsticks out? :)

Beat The Gush with Kotex!



Assalamualaikum and hello my love! We are going to do our 'girly talk' today! Yeah, if we are talking about Kotex, we are definitely going to talk about that time of the month! That several days in a month that makes us uncomfortable, makes us feel like our movement is limited than the usual days and that several days when our mood swings, well lets just say we are not in our best mood. :P *sorry guys*. I don't have crazy stories about my periods but I will always remember the first day when I got my period. I was 13 that time. I believe it was during a weekend because I remember waking up late. I went straight to the bathroom, wanted to brush my teeth and do all that jazz. And suddenly when I wanted to take my shower, I was shocked, panicked and almost cried. when I saw 'it', a big red dot. Like, what the hell is wrong with me??? But then, I calm myself down and I remembered. It must be the period. Wow, I hit my puberty at 13. *haha* :P Anyway I know girls will get it, it's just a matter of time because every individual is different. But you know, life goes on and having that special days in a month really define us as women. 


When I attended Kotex new and improved Kotex Soft & Smooth and also the 'Beat The Gush' Campaign, I was happy to be surrounded with all ladies and just talk about that time of the month.   One of the topic we discussed was about that sudden gush we experience during those days. Sometimes when you are in the middle of something important, that sudden gush you feel during your period days is so distracting and makes you lose focus. The good thing about the new and improved Kotex Soft & Smooth is that it comes with 3 wonderful features :


Rapid Absorb Core
Help to absorb sudden gushes immediately and directly at the source for exceptional protection.

Micro-Dri Cover
More than 3000 micro holes for fast and effective absorption.

Infinity Lock System (with side barriers and deep channels)
Prevent all round protection against leaks.



Gorgeous Diana Danielle!
