Look Perfectly Put Together This Hari Raya with Timeless Luxury Accessories From Reebonz
reebonz_malaysia_bags_shoes_raya_fashion
While getting ready for special occasions and events can be exciting and fun, it can also be daunting when trying to put that perfect look altogether and make it work. Many of us who will be celebrating Hari Raya Aidilfitri and hosting or going to numerous open houses, would have picked out the fabric and colors for each day’s ensemble, or we may have bought off-the-rack, while the rest of us are still searching, and growing increasingly frantic! It can take hours, days and weeks of searching for the right fashion picks that not only fit us nicely but also create our fashion statement and identity.
However, even the most beautifully designed and embellished designer outfit may seem unfinished if not paired with the perfect accessories be they handbags, shoes, wallets or jewellery.

Reebonz (pronounced ‘ribbons’), Asia’s trusted online shopping destination for buying and selling the widest variety of luxury brands has an amazing selection of handbags, shoes, small leather goods and jewellery to complete your look. All items sold through the Reebonz platform, both new and pre-loved are guaranteed authentic, and are often available at significant savings through the many sale events on the site.
Trends For Hari Raya Aidilfitri
Reebonz experts have curated some of the key accessories, colours, shapes and sizes for the festive season and beyond for the stylista in each of us.
The secret to successful Hari Raya accessorising is to choose timeless pieces that can be used after the festivities as well.  As a rule, traditional attire such as baju kurung, baju kebaya, jubah and abaya are best complemented by structured classic shapes, and elegant heeled footwear.
Key colors for Hari Raya include white, yellow and green (ladies, take note of these colors!) as well as classic black and shades of gold for formal dinner events.
Luxury comes in many levels and the Reebonz’ Online Price before further markdowns is always more attractive than the recommended retail price at designer boutiques. For the best value at Reebonz, stalk your favorite items for when they are at their lowest price, which could be during special sale events, at clearance or when it is the last piece available.  
Handbags Trends
Tote bags are functional and ideal for work and weekends. Choosing a structured leather tote with bold hardware can add contrast or subtly complement an outfit. For Hari Raya consider the Michael Kors Jet Set Medium Travel Multifunction Tote in Sun, the upbeat preppy look of the Sophie Hulme Mini Tote Saddle Bag, and Miuccia’s latest saffiano leather collection – Prada Saffiano Cuir Double Bag.

Happy New Year! Top Product Picks from 2014

It has been a great year and as I welcome 2015, I’m just happy to acknowledge the wonderful products that I’ve tested in the past 12 months…

new-year-fireworks

I’ve chosen the top reviews and products that I’ve enjoyed the most from last year, 2014. And if you’re visiting my blog for the first time, I hope you’ll enjoy the article that you’ve landed on 🙂 


top-eye-makeup-nars-eye-paint-dual-eyeshadow
I can’t get enough of NARS and I can’t even choose just 1 eye product from this brand to be my top 
choice. Nars eye paint has become a daily part of my eye makeup. It’s just so versatile; works as a liner; works great for smokey eyes; works as an eyeshadow…perfect for me. 

Nars Dual Eyeshadow is amazing. It can be used with both wet and dry application, giving more edge on how you build eye effect with just 1 or 2 shades. Every time I use any Nars product, I feel like a pro. 


top-new-makeup-brand-launch-in-malaysia
I just recently reviewed its Eyeshadow Palette in Acid Brights and I’m really impressed, considering that this brand sells very affordable products. The color payoff is superb so if you’re looking for more impact with your color play, this affordable eye makeup brand is highly recommendable. They have a great range of lovely lipsticks, too!


top-face-powder-givenchy-loose-powder
Who would have thought that I’d explore loose powder? I’ve been using compact powder and liquid foundation for the past X years but this extremely stylish loose powder is irresistible. Powder texture is perfect and does wonders on the face. 

top-lipstick-mac-rihanna-viva-glam-red
I had a total of 3 MAC lipsticks this year (I think) but I loved this one the most. Firstly, I adore the matte red finish of the tube, which is a step sexier than the usual MAC tube. And, of course, the lip color itself is simply kick*ss. Wear whenever, wherever; it adds style to your look. This red shade has shimmer effect and looks even better for evening wear!

top-moisturizer-for-anti-aging
This moisturiser restores elasticity of the skin and stimulates collagen production. It has an unusual color but I love how it works on my face and neck. In just 3 days of using this, there’s a significant result on the texture and suppleness of the skin. It’s a great anti-aging cream!


top-sonblock-product-neutrogena-ultra-sheer
This is my perfect companion for the year in my fight against photo-aging. I love the sheer finish, which also makes it great on the face, even with makeup. It has a non-sticky texture and works for both body and face. Affordable, too!


top-face-mask-glam-glow-youth-mud
Every time I use this mask, I just keep falling in love with it again. It’s not surprising at all that a lot of celebrities are also captivated by this product. The immediate effect on the skin is amazing, right after a 20-minute treatment with this mask. It’s addictive but, of course, I put a 3-day interval between uses. Oh, can’t wait to use it again in the next 3 days!


top-dark-spot-solution-clinique-dark-spot-corrector
Sun exposure definitely takes a toll on our skin eventually. It’s a never-ending battle against photo-aging but with the right product, our skin will have better defences and cure, too! This Clinique product reduced my spots effectively, used together with the brightening cream. 


top-fragrance-valentina-perfume-bottle
My husband gave this as a Christmas present in 2013 and I am so in love with it. The fragrance is of floral notes; I love floral notes! And the bottle design is chic, so beautiful to see in my vanity cabinet. 


top-beauty-workshop-dior-womens-weekly
I love attending beauty workshops when I get the chance and among the ones that I’ve attended, this is the best one. The event was done efficiently and beautifully. Venue was great, food served was delicious, workshop was fun and educational, guests were treated highly, products are amazing and the Dior & Women’s Weekly team were just amazing. 


top-beauty-shopping-site-malaysia
Luxola has really made beauty shopping convenient and fun. I’ve been frequently exploring new brands to try and I still enjoy the feeling of surprise every time I receive a Luxola parcel. The brands they carry are worth exploring, such as SkinInc, Miriness and affordable makeup tools like Sigma and Zoeva. Promotions make Luxola shopping even more irresistible. Service is fast and efficient, why wouldn’t I shop?


top-shampoo-watsons-argan-oil
My hair can get very dry and lifeless so I need hair products that provide damage repair and nourishment. I guess my rebounding sessions have made my hair dry and weak. I love this Watsons Argan Oil hair care range, which is also affordable. 


top-hair-accessories-headbands-sereni-shentel
This brand is simply unique, creative and beautiful. The headband designs and styles range from classy, fun, elegant, simple, colourful, surprising and more. The way Sereni and Shentel brought head piece concepts to life is catchy and captivating. It even has collection for babies, too! When I first saw photos of its different collections for babies, kids and women, I adored the brand. 


top-female-shoe-brand-charles-and-keith
Charles & Keith has been great on my feet. I love their designs, I love the material and my feet love their shoes. I often get sore feet or some discomfort with other brands but not from C&K. Their shoes are durable, lasts long and stylish. I enjoy wearing wedges and C&K has one of the best collections that change every season. The bags are worth buying, too. 


top-kids-shoes-brand-stride-rite
I’m a shoe-aholic and I also enjoy shopping shoes for my son. Stride Rite is the best brand I’ve bought for him. The shoes last very long, even the washable ones after regular washing. It’s very comfortable and my son enjoys wearing them. 


top-wine-provider-wine-talk-malaysia
Wine is one of the few addictive things in life that I enjoy and I particularly love Wine Talk when it comes to looking for or buying wines. Wines are easy to find and order online via its website, and the wines will be delivered straight to your doorstep. Simple and easy. 

So these are my top picks from 2014! I am looking forward to more products and services to try this year. 2015, let’s make it even better, more exciting and more fun!


Shoe Shopping at Charles & Keith Sale

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.Marilyn Monroe

A girl can never have too many shoes. Only a handful of men would understand this. Luckily, my hubby never complained, but he does ask how many pairs of feet do I have. Haha!
So when I saw the ‘SALE’ sign at Charles & Keith in Mid Valley last week, I had to check it out. The collections with discount were very tempting but I’m quite picky with shoes. My feet tend to easily tire and be painful with certain styles. With years of shoe-shopping experience, I already know what styles my feet are comfortable with.

charles_keith_shoes_sand_gray_pink_heels

Charles & Keith shoes at RM79.90 (NP: RM165.90)

The first pair I picked was this lovely sand-gray open-toe shoes with ankle strap. What caught my eyes were the hot pink heels. Those heels give this pair a posh flair versus if it were the same color as the rest. Well, I wouldn’t have bought it if it didn’t have those pink heels.

charles_keith_open_toe_high_heels

charles_keith_shoes_back_pink_heels


I don’t normally go for ankle straps because it is too time-consuming to put on and take off. I change into at least 2 pairs of shoes everyday: 1 flat pair for walking from the car to the office, and 1 high-heel pair inside the office. It’s just more comfortable to wear flats while walking at the parking lot, it’s ready for running if there’s danger, and it makes my official working shoes last longer. So if I were to use ankle strap shoes, it has to be an easy-to-wear type, like this pair of Charles & Keith shoes. Although it has the illusion of belt-type strap, it’s actually just a slot-in.
charles_keith_easy_fix_ankle_strap_shoes


charles_keith_black_closed_toe_shoes_sling_back

Charles & Keith shoes at RM79.90 (NP: RM159.90)

I also got this black pair of closed toe with sling-back strap. I have weird, choosy feet. I cannot really wear completely closed leather shoes, unless it’s flat and soft. My toes tend to get painful and sore. It has to be either open-toe or closed-toe but with exposed heel.

charles_keith_black_shoes_sling_back_strap
This fine black pair has very nice buckle strap that adds finesse to the solid color of the shoe. The brown grain details of the heels add texture and style. My recent purchases were mostly wedge heels so I wanted to try using slimmer heels again. And this one is really sexy.
charles_keith_black_sexy_shoes_sling_back_strap
   
Charles & Keith is definitely the brand of shoes that I have most of. When I went to JPO (Johor Premium Outlets) a few months ago, I also grabbed this cute pair of flats. Yes, we all love high, tall shoes but we also need a good pair of flats to calm our tired feet and legs down after hours with high heels.
charles_keith_shoes_jpo_premium_outlets_shoe_sale

If I remember it right, I got this pair for RM55 at JPO

charles_keith_shoes_sale_shopping_jpo_premium_outlets

This pair has a very nice buckle detail on the toe box featuring the Charles & Keith brand name.

I do buy other brands, too, but these Charles & Keith pairs are just worth the article: lovely details, worthy prices and long-lasting quality. Happy shoe shopping, ladies!

Shopped for ALDO Shoes in Vietnam!

Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.

Marilyn Monroe



Another addiction of mine aside from beauty products is shoes. I actually realized that I haven’t shared my shoe-shopping experiences enough. Oh, well, it’s never too late.
I was in Vietnam last month and, of course, holiday shopping wouldn’t be complete without shopping for footwear. I shopped for some fancy slippers sold in the night market at very low prices. As I mentioned on my travel post, bargaining is a skill that you must always use at the market.
But my addiction for fancy shoes brought me to the brightly-lit commercial complex of Vincom Center in District 1, Ho Chi Minh. My sister-in-law happily informed me that ALDO was having a very good SALE so my ever-ready-to-shop husband brought me to do my favorite activity during holidays — shoe-shopping!
image-aldo-shoes-colorful
I think that the last time I bought a pair of ALDO shoes was when I was still in the Philippines, which was several years ago. I haven’t shopped for another pair since I moved to KL. It was a lovely experience to re-acquaint myself again with this shoe brand!
What perfect timing for me to shop for Aldo shoes in Vietnam. Aldo was indeed having a SALE and I got these 2 pairs of shoes at more than 60% OFF!
image-silver-and-beige-shoes-with-boxes

My 2 new pairs of Aldo shoes from Vietnam!


The first one I picked was this beige pair of wedges. I would have gone for the black one but my size wasn’t available. But after wearing it several times at work, I realized that this color is quite nice to use for a lot of corporate attires. I can use it with black outfits, which I love. I can use it with white and beige so the color turned out to be as good as black.

Beige ALDO shoes – wedge, sling-back with gold trim on the base

Love the comfortable wedge heel and the sling back.
Normal price: VND2,200,000 (RM343)
Sale price: VND799,000 (RM125)
Second I picked was this pair of sexy, silver high heels, again, with sling back. My feet don’t like closed shoes and closed heels. This silver pair is great for wedding evenings and other night events. I love sparkles and glimmer so I didn’t have second thoughts in grabbing this pair. I haven’t worn it yet but I soon will.

Shiny, silver Aldo shoes – high heels, sling-back

Normal price: VND2,200,000 (RM343)

I love these shoes!

Stride Rite Shoes for Babies & Kids

stride-rite-monsters-university-shoes
I love shoes! Who doesn’t, right? As much as I enjoy shopping shoes for myself, I definitely enjoy shopping shoes for my son! I was addicted to my son’s feet since he was a newborn and I admit that I am still nibbling his feet every single day. No day passes by without me spending a few seconds or minutes playing with his feet.
Naturally, my shoe shopping for my son takes as long as shopping a pair for myself, even longer. I’m very particular with the appearance, colors, materials and comfort. I also look for shoe types that will be easy to clean. My son used to vomit a lot; well, he still vomits occasionally while traveling and the shoes are easy targets for vomit stains.

stride-rite-shoes-malaysia-price
I look for materials that look durable. Kids my son’s age (he’s 4 years old now) run a lot and, unlike us adults, they don’t really care whether their nice shoes get messed up or not. It takes a certain age to be conscious of that. So if the material doesn’t last long enough, your child will only be able to wear those pair of shoes for a few times.
Most important for me in buying shoes for my child is comfort. He must be comfortable and happy to wear his shoes, just like adults should. If he’s not comfortable, he’ll be fidgeting and taking it off frequently.

I first heard of Stride Rite in Malaysia in 2011 and was delighted to learn that this brand has reached the country. Since having a child in 2009, I’ve begun to be fascinated by those cuddly, adorable, tiny shoes. Being a baby foot addict, I want nice, good shoes for my son’s feet.
It’s very interesting how a shoe brand puts significant importance to children’s feet. Did you know that Stride Rite has been around for more than 90 years? It was founded in Massachusetts, United States. Only Stride Rite has introduced a first walking shoe that is clinically proven to reduce the number of stumbles and falls when learning to walk. Until now, it continues to provide shoes that were specifically made with an in-depth knowledge of how children walk.

Stride Rite: Rite Steps System

I admittedly don’t know much about the science of children’s feet. Maybe I didn’t explore or try to understand more about them. But here are some interesting facts from Stride Rite that are worth taking note of:
  • Bones are not fully formed in a child’s foot until age 5. While the foot is still developing, the cartilage can be easily influenced by ill-fitting footwear.
  • Babies’ feet do not have arches. Arches do not start to develop until 2 years old.
  • The 52 bones in the human feet make up one quarter of all the bones in the human body. 
  • Babies’ feet perspire two times more than adults, so always look for breathable materials such as leather and mesh or anti-microbial linings.
  • The heel is the one bone in the foot that helps to balance baby’s entire body.
  • Similar to your body, your feet are still growing into your late teen years. So your tenth pair of shoes is just as important as your very first.

And did you know that you should never hand-down baby shoes from one child to another? According to Stride Rite, baby shoes, especially shoes made of leather form to a child’s foot once they are worn for a while. A person’s gait is much like their fingerprint; it is unique to them. If a child wears hand-me-down shoes, his or her walking pattern may be affected since his or her feet are now trying to form to the gait of another child. (Of course, this shouldn’t stop us from donating shoes in good condition to the needy. A worn pair of shoes is still better than no shoes at all. So please do save your old shoes for people who have none.)
Stride Rite has very adorable collections for ages 0 to 10, both boys and girls. Check out these wonderful, cute shoes!

Stride Rite has Princess collection shoes for the little princesses, too!

I finally got to buy Stride Rite shoes for my son. I bought 2 pairs of blue shoes that can be worn for school and for going out. My son loves blue and he personally chose these pairs. 1 pair is open-toed, which is great for long travels. The 2nd pair is closed shoes but is designed to allow his feet to breathe and comes in breathable mesh, too. Both pairs can be washed easily and since they have dark blue color, I think I wouldn’t have much challenge in cleaning and maintaining them.

When I purchased these 2 pairs, I also got entitled to be part of Kidea – Stride Rite’s new membership programme, which gives members/kids a lot of privileges to watch out for. Any purchase of RM80 or above allows you to be a member of Kidea for free.

So now my son is looking forward to wear his new shoes! Just like mommy, he also loves nice, comfortable footwear!
About Stride Rite
Stride Rite’s rich, deep heritage is found in every shoe. Nowhere is this more evident than in The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) grant of its Seal of Acceptance to several styles of Stride Rite’s baby shoes, the first baby shoes in the industry to carry the Seal. 

Throughout the 70s, Stride Rite maintained the position as the leading manufacturer of quality children’s footwear. The company saw significant changes taking place in the shoe industry and found a new opportunity for growth. In 1972, Stride Rite opened its first company-owned retail bootery, bringing more than 60 years of experience and expertise in children’s shoes to the public. 

Stride Rite has remained committed to providing the best fitting shoes for children. The entire collection, every single shoe, is created from an in-depth knowledge and understanding of how children walk and grow. Stride Rite studies have led to important breakthroughs and new technologies in children’s footwear. 

So whether children are taking their first steps or are off and running, Stride Rite understands the significance of every step and will continue to innovate and provide the most advanced children’s footwear.

Want to be posh & taller without the pain? You’ll love this Charles & Keith Wedge!

Wearing high-heeled shoes can be very challenging and painful especially if you have to endure it for long hours. But for the sake of looking stylish and chic at work or when attending events, we, ladies, bear the ever-tiring and quite painful experience of wearing those sexy stilettos. 


The good thing with fashion is that it has been evolving to be functional than just simply chic. I’ve been a big fan of wedges or platforms for the past few years, more so because I had to find a painless way of walking taller than wearing fancy high heels. And wedges nowadays have become so fashionable and have definitely become part of making a statement. Admittedly, I would have preferred to wear flats if we just talk about ultimate comfort but the desire to be more stylish and to walk tall at work is just inevitable. 


So I’m just delighted to share my latest favorite pair of wedges from Charles & Keith.  This is an open-toe, slingback style with combined textures of faux snake skin and velvet. I love the 4-inch high platform and it’s not tiring or painful at all. I’ve worn it for a week at work and I just love my height with it. Well, I’m 5’4″ but an additional 4-inch height wouldn’t hurt, right?

Of course, I wouldn’t recommend this to ladies who’d need to stand for hours continuously. But it’s simply perfect to wear for an event and a better option than high heels if you’re the type who feels the pain and discomfort with the latter. 


Charles & Keith has a lovely collection of wedges and platforms in different styles and colors. I personally prefer slingback and open-toe wedges as the grip on my feet is better with the sling than normal closed shoes. Open-toe shoes are perfect for showing a glimpse of those polished toenails.

So if you ever need a pair of stylish shoes without the pain, go for wedges or platforms. You’d have the extra inches you want and still be as posh as you can be. Walk tall, be chic and smile!
