Do you like massages? Man, I love massages. There’s no greater satisfaction than having pent-up stress literally being pressed out of you. Your muscles become less tense and your body feels like a giant weight has been lifted off, like something in your brain has clicked into place and it releases all those nice hormones. It just really helps to align your body, mind and soul, bringing them together to a place of peace, serenity and rejuvenation like you wouldn’t believe. Continue reading

Okay, so I’m not the most well versed when it comes to public transport. I’m not a big fan of squishing into small places with lots of people, wondering who or what was emanating that odd smell while worrying if my ass is in someone’s way. So you can imagine my (slight) hesitation when Tammy (my boss) was like, “guys, let’s take the train to Ipoh together for team bonding! It’ll be fun and comfortable!”. Mamasan Tammy had a brilliant team bonding weekend planned for me and my Althean colleagues that included having some good eats and spending a day in The Lost World Of Tambun for some fun activities. #GlamSquadOnVacay Continue reading
I LOVE to bake. I love everything about it: the mixing, the scooping, the whisking… I love it all (except the washing up, of course). I’m an avid baker of brownies because they’re easy to make and taste absolutely divine: chewy, melty and chocolatey with every bite (here’s the recipe I always go back to, in case you were wondering). So when the opportunity came up to create a look inspired by brownies came up, I knew I definitely had to jump onto that bandwagon ASAP! Continue reading
So The Butterfly Project has recently launched a new little project for bloggers to come onto their blogs and be quick and raw about a topic. I think it’s a fantastic idea to have people not have to worry so much about superficial things (i.e. taking a million pictures to have ONE good shot, then editing the hell out of it anyway) and really remember the fundamentals of blogging in the first place: to share information and opinions. I’m going to take this opportunity to make posts like this quick and easy to read and digest with as much information as possible regarding my experiences with particular products. This month’s topic is “My Fave Cleanser”, and since I do a double cleansing routine on the daily, I’ll be talking about a cleansing balm, as well as a foam cleanser. Continue reading
I remember when the metallic lipstick trend first exploded on the scene. My first thoughts sounded something like “Why would anyone wear something that emphasizes the cracks of their lips like that?” and “God, isn’t that terribly gaudy?”. Well, I’m ready to eat my words now: I really want more of that liquid metal on my face! Formulas have improved tremendously over time, and I found myself in love with the cool futuristic sheen that adds just enough drama to a look without looking like you tried too hard.
I love the idea of trying out what brands from the local scene has to offer. There’s something pretty satisfying about trying something out and being able to compare it to other bigger brands that everyone is accustomed to. I was recently given the chance to try out Orkid Cosmetics, a Malaysian brand that specializes in matte liquid lipsticks, and honey, you KNOW I’m all about that liquid lipstick life.
There are two things in this world that I’ll always allow indulgence in: chocolate and beauty products. So when I heard there was a company that thought it would be a fantastic idea to combine both together, I knew I had to try them out! Continue reading
If I could use one word to describe what my skin is like, “sensitive” would just about cover it. Unfortunately, my skin is very susceptible to getting irritations and redness, so I’m pretty picky about the products I use on both my face and body (I’m not one to have a high-annoyance tolerance when it comes to skin hypersensitivity). Since I get irritations super easily, it’s always a struggling battle between wanting to smell or look good and using a product that won’t ruin my skin.
I know what you’re thinking: what is this girl doing talking about life things? I’m just here for the beauty stuff. I know, I know, it’s out of character for me, but I feel like this is something I feel strongly about and I’d like to talk about it a little. Let me just start by saying this: I am a fat girl. There, I’ve said it. I acknowledge it, I accept it, I am it. Continue reading
