I’m captivated by Althea 🙂 

E-commerce has made beauty shopping so much easier and more convenient. When it comes to beauty products, though, I must admit that I don’t have a lot of Korean ones. I guess I often find that information on packaging can be tough to understand when there’s no English translation. But with Althea, I don’t have this problem anymore. Each product available for shopping online has product information and details, even photos of actual application!

I love the full colour of the lip crayon! (Sorry, can’t smile too wide…wrinkles…)

Tried here: Elizavecca Skin Liar Primer, It’s My Lip Crayon, Witch’s Pouch Perfect Cover Concealer, AirFit CC Cream

Here’s a personal tip in creating your party kit. After you have decorated your hat with the paper accessories, you can try mounting it on a headband instead of tying a string on both ends. Using a headband can allow you to position the hat to the right or left aside from the usual centre position. Plus it’s easier to wear and you don’t need to use a string.

Happy shopping, guys!

Support Breastfeeding together with MyNutriBaby

Infant and child nutrition programme MyNutriBaby launches nationwide contest in conjunction with World Breastfeeding Month


mynutribaby_launch_breastfeeding_contest_philips_avent
Breastfeeding is the best way to nourish a baby, but some mothers are unable to do so smoothly and continuously. They try to breastfeed exclusively for at least 6 months, but eventually discontinue their efforts, often due to a lack of support from the people around them. In light of this, several professional bodies have come together to launch a contest to promote increased support among Malaysians for breastfeeding mothers.
The contest, #LetsSupportBreastfeeding, will run from 18 August to 19 September 2014. Interested participants can visit www.mynutribaby.org.my. Here, they can watch a video which highlights how a breastfeeding mother’s efforts are improved by the support she receives from her husband, her mother-in-law and her employer. They can then nominate someone who is breastfeeding or has breastfeed and share how they have supported this person’s efforts. Both the nominee and nominator stand to win great prizes.
#LetsSupportBreastfeedingis an initiative from MyNutriBaby, a community education programme spearheaded by Nutrition Society of Malaysia (NSM) in collaboration with the Malaysian Paediatric Association (MPA), Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society (OGSM) and National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN). The programme is supported by Philips AVENT Malaysia.
black_and_white_photo_mother_breastfeeding_baby

“MyNutriBaby is a programme dedicated to help parents improve their children’s nutritional status for better growth and development,” said Dr Tee E Siong, President of NSM. “It aims to translate the key messages of the Malaysian Dietary Guidelines for Children and Adolescents, released by the Ministry of Health in 2013, into simple easy-to-follow messages for the public.”
He added that, with many members of the organising committee being parents themselves, they fully understand the challenges experienced by breastfeeding mothers.
According to Dr Tee, there are many mothers who wish to breastfeed because of its many benefits.  “Breast milk offers complete nutrition for the baby’s growth and development, and it contains antibodies that help protect the baby from infections. The mother also receives benefits such as improved bonding with her baby and faster post-pregnancy weight loss. This is why it is recommended that mothers give their babies only breast milk in the first six months. Mothers should continue to breastfeed after the child has started complementary foods, until the child is two,” he said.
However, there are mothers who discontinue breastfeeding due to reasons such as latching problems, discomfort and pain, or having to go back to work. Also, workplace pressure, stress and fatigue can affect breast milk production, causing some mothers to believe that they are not capable of producing enough breast milk.
“Many frustrations associated with breastfeeding can be lessened by the support from the people around the mother,” said Dr Tee. Even small gestures, such as providing a listening ear, go a long way in improving the mother’s confidence and determination to keep breastfeeding.  “This is why we encourage people to take part in #LetsSupportBreastfeeding. It is a great opportunity to let a special mother know how much you appreciate and support her efforts!” 
“Philips AVENT believes that breast feeding is the best source of nourishment for babies. Philips AVENT turns 30 this year, and our commitment to this remains unchanged. Breast milk, with its health-enhancing benefits for babies, is ideal for them, so we aim to help all mothers breast feed as easily and as conveniently as possible. MyNutriBaby is a meaningful programme very much in line with what we believe, thus we are pleased to support the #LetsSupportBreastfeeding contest,” said Muhammad Ali Jaleel, Country Manager for Philips Group of Companies in Malaysia and General Manager for Consumer Lifestyle, Philips Malaysia.

Fight Blackheads with Neutrogena Deep Clean

How do you solve your blackhead woes and how do you prevent them from coming back?

blackhead_eliminating
Having pores that are ‘not normal in size’ can be really challenging. Pores like mine tend to get clogged and invite dirt, forming more whiteheads or blackheads. My regimen through the years involved proper cleansing and trying to ensure that I use the right cleansers to address this concern about blackheads.
Although there are a lot of good cleansers out there, it pays to use a specific one that is targeted to fight those nasty little things. While doing my regular visit a few months ago at a leading pharmacy, I stumbled upon this product from Neutrogena, which caught my eye because of its name that twinkled magically to my attention (ching ching ching). Blackhead eliminating, eh? Gotta try that.

neutrogena_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub
This product comes in a half-transparent plastic tube. The flip-top cap makes it convenient, and the opening has a sticker seal for quality protection. You have to twist the cap open to remove this.

neutrogena_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub
The scrub itself is a shiny, white fluid with orange micro beads. It just smells clean and nice, no extra fragrance there.

neutrogena_deep_clean_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub
I love using this on my face. During the day, I normally use a different cleanser then in the evening, I use Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub after Cleansing Lotion. My face feels great and really ‘deeply cleaned’ with this scrub.

neutrogena_deep_clean_blackhead_eliminating_daily_scrub_product_review

LEFT: with makeup, before washing with Neutrogena
RIGHT: after washing with Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub

What difference did it make on my pores?
When I started using this, my regimen already included weekly cleansing with pore strip, which has reduced the amount and size of whiteheads and blackheads that I strip off every week. With the addition of Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub, I noticed that I barely have blackheads on my pore strip, and it definitely prevented formation of more blackheads. I don’t think that my face will totally be ‘heads-free’ but I’m now able to control them, resulting to cleaner pores. Yay! #happy #neutrogena #skincare #greatcleanser #fightblackheads
More about Neutrogena Deep Clean Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub

About Neutrogena
Neutrogena the #1 Dermatologist Recommended skincare brand offers a wide range of skin care products.

By the 1940’s, Natone began manufacturing and distributing cosmetics for the retail market. In 1994, the respect and credibility earned by Neutrogena Corporation led to its acquisition by Johnson & Johnson in 1994. As a member of Johnson & Johnson companies, Neutrogena has the opportunity to preserve the “Neutrogenic way” while at the same time drawing on the breadth of Johnson & Johnson resources.
Now, more than ever, consumers equate health with beauty. Neutrogena stands naturally poised for tremendous future growth and an ever-increasing number of satisfied customers. Under Neutrogena Brands.

Start Your 14 Days to Confidence with Dove

Is hair fall giving you challenges in your personal life? Let Dove help you overcome hair fall and regain your confidence in 14 days!

beautiful_healthy_hair_brown
It is undeniable that we place great value to the appearance and condition of our hair. We spend and invest money on making our hair softer, smoother, curlier, straighter, colored and more. Although a lot of these hair treatments may be done for aesthetic purposes, the most important aspect of going through it all that we may or may not realize is to boost our self-esteem and confidence.

lady_with_rich_elaborate_hair

Ancient history associated hair with status and wealth

The hair is our crowning glory and it plays an important role in our self-image, which dates back to ancient history. In the Greek and Roman ancient times, people wear rich, elaborate wigs to indicate status and wealth. Beautiful, healthy hair symbolized beauty, as with Cleopatra’s coveted thick, black hair. And, of course, beautiful hair also signified youth and vitality, as we all know that with aging comes hair loss so thinning, dull hair is associated with the old.
Today, hair has become more important than ever. Being a goal-driven workingwoman, putting aesthetics reasons aside, I personally think that confidence from having healthy hair is very important for these 2 things: getting the job that you want (or at least increase the chances of), and career development. Of course, I’m not saying that having luscious, lovely hair alone will get you there BUT imagine if you are facing hair fall while you’re at an interview. Without you noticing it, you are subconsciously worried by your appearance, thereby lowering your self-esteem and confidence. 
woman_with_sad_worried_face

Worrying about something, including falling hair, affects your self-esteem and confidence

When I interview people, I examine how an applicant presents herself, physically and emotionally. Confidence is very easy to spot; it shines through and it breaks through. Trust me, if you are hiring for a position, a candidate who puts extra care in her personal presentation will more likely be better on the job than someone who cares less.
In terms of career development, confidence would probably give you at least 50% boost to reach your goal. I’m not talking about those who pretend to know something they don’t. Genuine confidence at work is the courage and determination to accomplish a task because he/she believes she can. When you are confident, you speak with authority, with value and with strength. And confidence won’t be easy to come by if you are burdened and disturbed by falling hair: hair on your suit, hair on the table, hair on your laptop, hair on the chair…hair everywhere.
GREAT NEWS! Recognizing real issues faced by women, the Dove Rambutmu, Mahkotamu campaign hopes to inspire women to let their confidence shine through once again as they overcome hair fall in 14 days in the “Serlahkan Diri Dalam 14 Hari Dengan Dove” campaign.

Shizens Awards Prizes for Stand Firm Stay Firm Photography Contest

It was out of passion for photography and interest in the subject that I participated in this contest. And guess what? I was one of the lucky winners.

shizens_time_resistance_eseence_beauty_anti_aging_serum

Shizens Time Resistance Essence STAND FIRM STAY FIRM

In April, so that was around 3 months ago, Shizens proudly launched their Stand Firm Stay Firm photography campaign. The “Stand Firm Stay Firm” campaign aims to display the outer beauty of women while also revealing their inner strength, which serves as an encouragement for them to stand firm within our society. It was an online contest where customers and fans stood a chance to win prizes by expressing their creativity through photos that display inner strength and outer beauty.
Hundreds of people submitted entries for the campaign, both for mobile photography and photography enthusiasts. And in the end, 10 finalists were selected/voted from each category that vied for grand and consolation prizes. I was so happy when I learned that I was one of the 10 finalists under photography enthusiasts.

My entry for Shizens Stand Firm Stay Firm Contest

My entry was this photo of myself with my precious son. I had a great time taking this photo with him, as he was very participative and supportive of what I was asking him to do. 
Shizens announced the final results early in June and I was one of them! My photo landed as First Runner Up. Wee!

I was very much intrigued by the foundation and I was more than happy to finally get a chance to test it. The name is very interesting and that white swirl of moisturizing nutrient visible on the foundation really makes it eye catchy. Must try!
Thanks once again to Shizens and to my friends and families who supported my son and me.

Philips and Disney Work Together To Light Children’s Imagination

Philips announces new Philips and Disney Product Line in Malaysia. Children can discover a whole new world of inspiration, enchantment and magic through light.

Philips Disney SoftPal Mickey – it’s a HUGGABLE LAMP!

My son is turning 5 years old in November and my next challenge is to train him how to sleep alone in his own bedroom. To be very honest, it worries me. First, how do I get him to even lie down on a bed outside our current bedroom? Second, what if he wakes up at night and discovers that I’m not at his side? Will he cry? Will he panic? How can I get him to feel comfortable being alone?
My first thought was to make his room themed to his favorite cartoon characters so he’d be more comfortable to be inside it. Maybe use a bed sheet and pillowcases with Disney’s Lightning McQueen. I’m even thinking of getting him a bed shaped like a racing car. But I haven’t thought of lighting yet. It’s amazing to discover how these small elements in a child’s room can make so much difference to their comfort and well being.

Royal Philips, a global leader in lighting, announces its partnership with family entertainment giant Disney to develop a range of inspiring, magical, and playfullighting products for children, parents, and everyone young-at-heart. Philips and Disney lighting, available in Malaysia, combines Philips’ groundbreaking innovation in lighting with the magic of Disney characters and storytelling to transform a child’s bedroom into a more creative place for bedtime stories and a restful environment for a good night’s sleep. I’ve already developed a nightly routine of reading stories to my son before he sleeps and it’s important for me to keep this habit of learning and imagination.

My first visit to Hamleys in One Utama

The launch – held at the Malaysian branch of Hamleys in the new wing of One Utama, saw 15 children aged from 4 to 9 years embarking on fun activities such as a mini race to look for Philips and Disney lighting products. They were also given pillows to build their own pillow fortressas part of engagement activities to encourage them to use their imagination. PILLOW FORTRESS?I didn’t even know there was a term for that play stuff where kids create a “house” or “dungeon” using their pillows. Wow, I learned something new.
As an (ex) interior designer, I have learned that lighting plays a significant role in creating the ambience of a room and it affects the people who dwell in it. Studies show that lighting has a strong impact on an individual’s mood, and the right lighting can help everyone, from children to adults, fall asleep and wake more naturally so that they can concentrate, perform tasks better, and simply feel happier during their waking hours. Philips and Disney Lighting is designed with children in mind, in order to provide the best lighting for their bedrooms. Whether parents need help encouraging their children to sleep or wake, Philips and Disney’s range of compact, portable lighting products can help.

Philips Disney SoftPal Mike at RM199

The most interesting Philips and Disney product that I’ve seen that day was the SoftPals. These soft, nighttime companions introduce just enough light to chase away the bumps in the night, without interrupting children’s natural sleep patterns. It’s an adorable soft lamp that our kids can hug and play with! Isn’t that amazing? I’ve never heard of something like it. Philips and Disney have truly done an innovative invention.
