Self Stirring Mug by Granton World

Thursday, 29 May 2014

Let me show you something SUPERRRR CUTEEEE while I was internet browsing the other day!


You know, how much of a BIG COFFEE ADDICT I AM right....
(erm, my nail salon partner beeQnails can attest to that hehehe!)


So when I saw this product, I know I HAD TO GET IT!!!

It's called a....

SELF STIRRING MUG!

It's fully battery operated (runs on two AAA batteries) and it's super lightweight, easy to clean and portable! It is made of stainless steel on the outer layer, and it comes with a snap-lock lid to keep drinks hot or from spilling out!

The self-stirring mug is the ultimate LAZY GIRL'S MUG because it easily dissolves cream and sugar without a spoon. There is a little whirring disc at the bottom spins and froths drink without the need to using any spoon or straw.


This is available at Granton World Malaysia and retails at RM29 (free nationwide delivery).

Vaseline 'Dry Skin Restored' Media Launch

Wednesday, 28 May 2014


Hey all!

I just attended the Vaseline launch yesterday and I bumped into several friends from freelance and blogging! I always look forward to attending these kinda events because firstly, I love beauty products! And of course not forgetting, I get to meet up with my friends!! *happy*

Though you have been seeing Vaseline body lotion in the market for quite sometime, I think this event was specially made to remind all women to moisturise their body more regularly! According to a study by Vaseline, 56% of Malaysian women still do not moisturise their body regularly!

This is definitely alarming as skin dryness could lead to premature ageing! ‘​Dry Skin Restored’ campaign aims to highlight to Malaysians, both men and women, the importance of protecting themselves from skin dryness and to educate them that body moisturising is not a lifestyle choice but a daily necessity.



My lovely freelance friends Penny Yiing & Charlotte Aiwa



Blogging friends Melody Khor (she's my gymnast junior too!) & Alice Tan


Emcee of the Day -- Xandria Ooi
(I always secretly think she resembles Edna from Pixar's The Incredibles!! hehs)


Members of the media were then taken a tour of the Dry Skin Restored roadshow held on the first floor of One Utama Shopping Centre. We were separated into three media groups to experience three different humidity levels to mirror our daily lives - street, office and hot shower - all of which dry the skin! (YES APPARENTLY HOT SHOWERS DEHYDRATES THE SKIN!) That's because we will emit sweat, which in turn the body loses its moisture! So as going to the gym!








Soon after which we adjourned to Delicious back again for lunch!







Just a quick note, the Vaseline Total Moisture range contains natural ingredients such as aloe vera, oat and cocoa butter, and an innovative technology, Stratys-3® to deliver extended moisturisation to the skin. Specifically, Stratys-3® is a revolutionary multi-layer complex that infuses and suspends moisture while delivering nourishment across skin's top, core and deep down layers of the skin without sticky feeling.

So basically, Xandria shared that why most women don't like putting on body lotion is because it leaves a sticky feeling on the body. To be honest, that's why *I* hardly put on body lotion too.

However, after the brand ambassadors let us have a few samples of trying out the lotion for ourselves, I'm glad to say the Vaseline lotion indeed DOES NOT leave that sticky feeling!

Also, the special technology of Stratys-3® allows the lotion to stay on the body for a longer period of time. Thus we do not need to keep reapplying it onto our body.

---

With so many lotions out there, there is no excuse for one to skip moisturising the body. A little every day goes a long way to ageing gracefully! ;)

THRIFTaholic Bazaar (post event writeup)

Tuesday, 27 May 2014











I prepped the whole week for this event, sorting out my stuff from Carousell and additional stuff from my closet and even some leftovers from my previous clothing venture.

So it was a super tiring event for me but the sales ain't that great cos my clothings are being blocked by my neighbours (thanks Oli & Audrey =P). Also well, halfway throughout the event I left for two hours for a blogger event at e@Curve (to be updated soon!).

I wanna take the time to make a big shoutout to Juliana Lee & Vickie Kaythrine for making this event happen! I also wanna credit my sister for waking up early and helping me the whole day (I OWE YOU SIS!). I saw many other cool stuffs from fellow vendors but I resisted the urge to buy more since my closet is already bursting from every angle D: so yes reduce in clothes shopping I must!! *sobsob*


My partner in crime Olivia

Founder of THRIFTaholic Bazaar, Juliana Lee

Co-Founder, Vickie Kaythrine Lee


For those who missed out this event, there will be another PART TWO (or so says the organizer)!!! Look out for this space and be updated through Facebook! A Page has been created to keep in touch with the fans here: 




Till the next bazaar again, loves!

Eyes Bags, BE GONE! Dermal Filler Treatment @ Mediviron UOA

Monday, 26 May 2014

HELLOOOO!!!


I've been wanting to share this post with you girls for quite sometime but I was busy the whole of last week with so many events - my birthday, the THRIFTaholic Bazaar, and other blogger workshops in between! So the long awaited "aesthetic beauty procedure" post is FINALLY HEREEE!!!


First things first, I would like to take the time to MEDIVIRON UOA for generously offering ME to join this Media Review Program!!!! *loveyouguyslongtime*


PLEASE TAKE NOTE that this simple beauty procedure is 
NOT EQUIVALENT WITH SURGERY!!! 

NO NO NO!!!!


Let me clarify that this procedure is 
NOTHING MAJOR.


This is the MAIN REASON why I agreed to it in the first place.


So if you're gonna start judging me and say "Oh Grace has succumbed to the pressure of having plastic surgery!", let me show you the "X" button on the TOP OF THIS WINDOW and show yourself out. If you are not going to read this with an open heart and mind, your reading ends here. 
Thank you very much.

So I was saying, I wanna take the time to thank the staff of Mediviron UOA for being a great sport! FYI, this treatment is worth about RMX,XXX. That's why I'm so thankful for this :)



Thank you Ms Joan for being the most accommodating person ever! *heart*
This is me BEFORE the treatment, see those eye bags starring back? rawr


So today, I'm going to share with you what 
DERMAL FILLERS
is all about.


This is a simple procedure recommended to me to treat my ever burgeoning SUPERSHOPPINGEYEBAGS problem.





Injectable dermal fillers, also known as hyaluronic acid fillers, are one of the most popular facial rejuvenation treatments that we offer and are a highly effective anti-ageing treatment with instant results and virtually no down time.

Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to create volume beneath facial skin, along with collagen, elastin and fat cells. As we aged, our natural reserves of hyaluronic acid break down but dermal fillers can be used to restore the lost volume in the face, to smooth and to reduce wrinkles and lines, and to create plumper lips. The effects of just a small touch of additional volume provided by hyaluronic acid fillers can make quite a dramatic difference to your appearance, leaving you a fresher and younger look.

Hyaluronic acid fillers can be used as a standalone treatment or in combination with other procedures such as BOTOX injections and laser resurfacing to produce the effects of a non-surgical facelift.


RECOMMENDED FOR
This procedure is suitable for all skin types. No allergy testing is required, as hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring it is safe to use on anyone.

HOW OFTEN?
The effects of hyaluronic acid fillers can last in excess of a year, although the longevity of results varies from patient to patient. The body will eventually break down and absorb the hyaluronic acid over time and without leaving a trace. It’s important to remember that the treatment is not permanent so there’s no risk of being stuck with a look you may not be happy with in years to come.

RECOVERY TIME?
No down time, most people are able to return straight to work after treatment. Some redness, minor swelling or bruising may be experienced in the treatment area but is easily hidden with mineral make-up.





And so the treatment begins by placing numbing cream underneath my eyes. I was told to wait for about 30-45 minutes for the effect to kick in. The numbing cream leaves a cooling sensation, no weird scent at all! Basically the waiting time can be quite long, so remember to bring a book or game console to occupy yourself!


Scroll down through the pics and see the numbing cream slowly disappear!
(Yes I was bored waiting so what else can a vainpot do! #letmetakesuperbanyakselfies #dontvomit #janganmuntah)



Oooooh, thank GOD Mediviron UOA serves coffee!!!!!!!!!
Life saver!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Ok wait taime is over, last selfie then it's NEEDLE TIME! *screamsrunaway*

The doctor first wipes away excess numbing cream and then proceeds to mark the spot for the needle to enter. I AM NOT GONNA EDIT THE PHOTOS BELOW TO LET YOU SEE MY REAL FACE FOR YOUR COMPARISON!



WARNING:

SUPER

GRAPHIC

PICTURES

AHEAD!!!!!




SCROLL DOWN QUICKLY IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF NEEDLES!!!!















Looks painful ain't it?
But I can confirm you....

IT IS NOT PAINFUL AT ALL!!!
I kid you not.
All thanks to the numbing cream.
Even after the numbing cream effect wears off, there is only a tingling sensation that lasts only a few hours then I can put on my makeup as usual.


So after the procedure is done, my doctor told me that unlike most patients, I have a special condition - 
I CANNOT SMILE FOR THE COMING WEEK

FML. My birthday was the very next day (I did this procedure on 6 May 2014) 
and I'm not allowed to smile?!?!!?! D:

I'm a person who easily laughs and smile a lot for the silliest of things and I'm refrained for doing so for the next few days, at least!

Because apparently my *new fillers* will move around (gasp!) whenever I smile as it hasn't really settled into shape, just yet.

I was told I cannot have any alcohol,
(WHAT IS A BIRTHDAY PARTY WITHOUT ALCOHOL FML AGAIN)
or any facial treatment until everything settles in.


Despite all the "pantang-larangs", you can however see a noticeable difference on my face!!! :DD




I SWEAR NO PHOTOSHOP
This is taken by my Casio ZR1000 camera with some skin smoothing effect.


So this is my try-hard-not-to-smile-in-the-end-I-look-silly face with my young lovely doctor!
She imitated my arms and legs pose for this photo
 HAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH!


The doctor is very friendly and accommodating towards me. I asked quite a few silly questions and she always answered me with a smile :) The front desk staff are quite helpful too, offering to sip (more) coffee and helpful in directions to the washroom/food court. Overall, my experience was nothing short of splendid ;)


Keen to find out more about this procedure? 
Or any other beauty concerns? 
Feel free to call up for a consultation session!


Stay tuned for my next post on my third visit for follow-up 
(and perhaps touch-ups) procedures and what-nots!


Side note: If you are gonna do this procedure, do it at least a month or two before any huge events (esp those that involves alcohol!) so you will look at your optimum state :)
