Miracle Gel by Sally Hansen

I know many girls out there love to go to nail saloon for gel nails but it's kinda pricey and troublesome when you need to remove it. Guess what, today I'm going to introduce you a cheaper and easier option yet can achieve similar results - the Miracle Gel by Sally Hansen

Miracle Gel is the first ever part-lacquer, part-gel manicure system that delivers up to 14 days of lasting colour and shine in just 2 easy steps. Simply apply two coats of the Miracle Gel Colour Coat and followed by Miracle Gel Top Coat and you're done! Affordable prices (RM34.90 each), no UV/LED light needed and the regular nail polish remover will do, sounds awesome isn't it? :)

They have more than 45 eye-catching shades but currently they only bring in 11 shades + 1 top coat in Malaysia. Look at these fun and cheeky colours, definitely all girls' favourite!

During the workshop, we were also introduced to their nail treatment as well as nail art products since we're going to create our very own Christmas nails in a while. 

There was a short tutorial/demonstration session by the Sally Hansen team to give us a brief idea of what can we draw for our Christmas nails later. As usual, trim your nail cuticles and apply base coat/nail treatment before you apply your desired base colour.

Add a little designs on your nails like polka dot or you can even draw a snowflake on it. 

Finish it with top coat and you're done! Loving this Christmas nails creation, they're so lovely isn't it?

Here's my first attempt on nail art (with the help of Google :P), yay or nay? I gotta admit the Miracle Gel by Sally Hansen is one of the best creation ever; I love the vibrant colours and glossy effect offer by Miracle Gel and they're very easy to apply. The texture is a bit runny but you can achieve fully opaque nails with just two coats of the Miracle Gel Colour Coat and followed by Miracle Gel Top Coat. Now everyone can has salon-quality manicure with affordable price range at home too!

For those who're interested, I would recommend you to take up their Christmas Duo Pack which consists of a Miracle Gel Colour Coat (choice of shade 210 Pretty Piggy or shade 240 B Girl) + Miracle Gel Top Coat for only RM52.90 instead of RM69.80. The Miracle Gel Colour Coat and Miracle Gel Top Coat were developed to be used together and only with each other, hence you may not achieve the gel shining effect if you use other top coat over Miracle Gel colour.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Colour (available in 11 shades) and Miracle Gel Top Coat are both priced at RM34.90 each and are available at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa, Caring Pharmacy, Parkson and AEON 1 Utama.

Swimin12 - Learn to swim in 12 hours only!

Have you ever experienced that when you visit some amazing places like beaches or islands yet you can't swim and enjoy yourself? That's exactly how I feel when I entered the Emerald Pool in Krabi. The fact that I can't swim is also one of the reasons why I chose this travel package (includes Hot Spring Waterfall, Emerald Pool and ATV adventure) instead of island hopping. After I came back from Krabi, I've decided to go for swimming classes and approached this Swimin12, which highly recommended by my friends. As the name suggests, they actually guaranteed that students can learn to swim within 12 hours with the latest research on accelerated teaching methods and if you take longer time, they will continue to teach for FREE until you get it! Isn't it sounds awesome? :P

So far I had 3 classes with them and I'm so surprised to see myself improving every lessons and overcome my water phobia bit by bit. I used to be very brave that I dare to jump into the water and float on my own but there was once I was drowning and my sister did not save me at the very first time and I've developed water phobia since then.

Back to my swimming classes with Swimin12, as usual, breathing is the very first thing that I learnt during my first session. EJ, my swimming coach, also explained to me the importance of breathing for better understanding as it is the key to overcome my water phobia. He then moved on and taught me how to land in the most stable pose yet looking graceful but first I will have to act like a dead body and float on the water while facing down the pool. It's such a huge challenge for me and I was not dare to float on the water without holding anything. I was hesitating for quite a while then EJ advised me to hold onto the pool ladder and slowly let go of my hands and finally I did it! I know I'm the only one who can help to overcome my water phobia; all I need to do is just have the courage to float on the water and EJ was standing right in front of me if anything happen. Seriously I'm so glad to have EJ as my coach and he has been really patient with me throughout the whole lesson. He will correct my technique and encourage me whenever I hesitated to follow his instructions. So all you need to do is just relax your body and believe in your coach!

The following lessons were conducted by another coach, Alex, as EJ has some personal issues to deal with. Alex has great patience as well but he's more of an aggressive type of person. During my second and third lessons, I was taught how to paddle my feet and come out of water to breathe in order to stay under water longer in preparation for my next lesson for breaststroke. Basically when you're dare to float on the water while facing down the pool, just paddle your feet (without bending your knees) with correct hand movement and you can swim already! The best moment when I can actually move from one point to another :D

Group photo with Swimin12 coaches :)

I can't wait for my next swimming lesson and I'll be learning breaststroke yay! Do stay tuned at my blog for more updates and in the meanwhile, if you're also interested to learn swimming, Swimin12 is now offering 1 hour free trial for first timers! Drop them an email at or you may contact EJ, who is also the founder of Swimin12, directly at 6016 3533 555. No worries, they don't bite and have fun learning! :)

Peripera Limited Edition Disney Frozen Collection Review Event

Seems like the Frozen frenzy will never be over until another great Disney show comes up and you can still see many kids dress in Frozen costumes in shopping malls and people now are even naming their babies after Frozen characters! Peripera Malaysia has took this opportunity and release a limited edition Peripera Disney Frozen collaboration collection to capture women's heart. Inspired by the elegant Queen Elsa and her cute sister Princess Anna, the collection features eye shadows, cushion cream, powder, eyeliners, glam tint and many more...

The event was first kick start with products introduction and makeup demonstration of Elsa inspired look. Elsa inspired look is more emphasized on her eye makeup and the main product used here is Tap Tap Eyes #1 Let It Go (purple colour eye shadow kit @ RM59.90). For the eye shadow part, they first apply the darkest purple colour to define the lower part of the eyelid, then apply the light medium purple colour on the lower lid beneath the crease. Blend the colour out and upwards slightly without blending out the defined line and lastly apply the lightest shade on the crease to highlight. Then, use the black pencil liner from Wholly Deep Liner Kit (which consists of five different colour with matte finish @ RM79.90) to draw the bottom of the eyelash and lower eye and finish up with mascara on both top and bottom eyelashes.

A makeup will never be complete without lip colour. The pink cranberry lip colour used here is Magic Glam Tint #1 Let It Go (@RM35.90) to create the splendid and elegant look of Queen Elsa.

This is the complete Elsa inspired makeup look, pretty much easy to create and looking elegant right? :)

For those who preferred a more defined eye makeup or preparing for a night out with friends/family, you may touch up your eye makeup with Wholly Deep Auto Gel Liner #3 (purple colour with glitters @ RM39.90) on the bottom of your eyelash and lower eye. The easy drawing soft texture can be used as eye shadow as well and no worries it wouldn't the eye shadow colour which you've applied previously. Can you see the differences on the model's left and right eye?

They then moved on to Anna inspired look. Contrary to Elsa, Anna inspired look is more of innocent, fun and playful look and the main product used here is Tap Tap Eyes #2 I'm Christopher (orange colour eye shadow kit @ RM59.90). If I'm not mistaken, the shade is different but they apply the same way as Elsa eye makeup.

The lip colour used on Anna is Magic Glam Tint #2 I'm Christopher (coral lip colour @ RM35.90) which gives the feeling when Anna fell in love with Prince Hans. The makeup artist suggests us to apply the lip colour on the inner lips and dab lightly using fingers to create Korean gradient lips.

The complete look of Princess Anna, which is more of natural look and is suitable for daily makeup as well. Similarly, when you're going for dinner, you can touch up your eye makeup with Wholly Deep Auto Gel Liner #2 (brown colour with glitters @ RM39.90) for soft smokey eye makeup.

Now take a look at the whole range of limited edition Peripera Disney Frozen collaboration collection, I'm totally fall for their cute packaging and not forgot to mention, they are nice to use as well especially the Wholly Deep Auto Gel Liner; vivid colours with glitters, easy to glide on yet highly waterproof & smudge-proof! (Y)

Peripera Malaysia is currently running a few promotions whereby customers may collect the redemption cards which are available inside the products packaging to redeem special Frozen pouch as well as a Frozen party which will be held at Neway, 1 Utama Shopping Centre in December 2014. The Peripera Limited Edition Disney Frozen Collection is now available at major Watsons store, Frozen fans don't forget to check 'em out!

Kracie x The Butterfly Project

This year's Halloween was a bit more special, not the usual horror theme but a kawaii theme Kracie product launch with the Butterfly Project! How many of you have actually heard of the brand 'Kracie' or use it before? Kracie, which was formerly known as Kanebo, is one of the largest company in Japan with a wide range of products including toiletries & cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and even foods. And today we were introduced to their Ichikami hair care and Hadabisei skin care series.

The event was kick start with an introduction of the company and their products by Mr. Kojima, who specially came all the way from Japan and he's one funny guy!

We were first presented with their Ichikami hair care series which uses Japanese Botanical Essences to not only repair existing hair damage but prevent future damages as well. One of the main ingredients in Ichikami is rice bran where the Japanese in the past believed that the beauty of a lady is to have long and silky black hair and they realized using rice water can moisturize and protect their hair.

The Kracie team also did a little demonstration on hair styling featuring their Ichikami hair care series. They first apply hair treatment essence to protect the hair from heat damage, curl it, and lastly set the hair with styling gel and cologne to hold the curls longer. Her hair is now looking more healthy and smooth with perfect curls!

Next is about their Hadabisei face masks, which has a wide variety to choose from to suit different skin trouble needs (eg. brightening, dryness-induced wrinkle care, adult acne care).

This time Mr. Kojima decided to demonstrate on his own since we were all busy eating. We were also given two packs of sheet masks, All-in-1 Mask and Eye Zone Mask after the event and I'm totally loving it! The sheet mask is very soft and moisturizing, hence it can absorb into my skin quickly. (Y)

The complete range of Ichikami hair care and Hadabisei skin care series and they are now available at all AEON Wellness stores.

I'm so glad to meet up with the butterflies after so long and this cute mamasan with her green colour wig and kitty specs. :P Thanks to the Butterfly Project and Kracie for the invite, now I'm introduced to another awesome beauty brand and I'm definitely enjoy using their products especially the Hadabisei sheet masks. (Y) Get yours now at any AEON Wellness stores! :)

Dream Trip to Macau

Flipping through the photobook which I made for my trip to Macau in June this year, it reminds me of how much I miss Macau and wish to revisit the place again even though it's only 5 months past. Million thanks to Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) and Nuffnang Malaysia, now I have a chance to win a 3D2N all-expense paid trip to Macau (including return air ticket and 2 nights accommodation at a 4-star hotel)! *pinch my face* It's true!

Macau (澳门) is one of the two Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China, the other being Hong Kong. Located across the Pearl River estuary from Hong Kong, with an estimated population of around 624,000 living in an area of 31.3 km2, it's the most densely populated region in the world. Macau was one of the earliest European colonies in Asia and the last to be relinquished (1999) and thus has a more visible colonial history than Hong Kong. Walking through the old city you could convince yourself you were in Europe - if the streets were devoid of poeple and signs in Chinese, that is. The Portuguese and Macanese populations continue to maintain a presence but as expected, most of the population is native Chinese.

Among the thousands reasons, here's the three most amazing things that makes me want to (re)visit Macau badly:
1. Food (especially Portuguese egg tart!)
I've never know Macau is a food heaven until I did research on it and there was a long food list appeared right after. I'm so regret that I didn't get to try most of them but now I'm determined to return to Macau with a food mission! :P Based on my visit to Macau previously, one thing that you must not miss out is their Portuguese egg tart! Slightly charred sweet custard with flaky pastry, definitely the best thing I've ever had in my life! I swear you will never purchase other Portuguese egg tarts after you've tried those in Macau.

2. UNESCO Heritage Sites
Again, I didn't know there are so many heritage sites in Macau, apart from Ruins of St. Paul's, it has now even been inscribed on the World Heritage List, making it the 31st designated World Heritage site in China. With 25 world heritage sites crammed into the compact Macanese peninsula, it's definitely an enthralling place to ramble around and explore. Every corner of the streets in Macau seems to have different meaning and history behind it. I only get to visit a few of them when I traveled to Macau previously as my boyfriend doesn't fancy these heritage sites, museums or even temples.

3. Skywalk Experience at Macau Tower
I guess I underestimate Macau that I've never notice there are so many things that I can do there and do you know Macau Tower actually hold the Highest Commercial Bungy Jump in the world in Guinness World Record with 233m/764ft high? I have fear of height hence bungy jump is totally crossed out from my to-do list but I would like to challenge Skywalk instead, among all the activities they offer. Standing on top of Macau Tower 233/764ft high, take a stroll around the outer perimeter that encircles the tower, it's considered as the most yolo adventure for me already. :P My boyfriend and I have planned to go for Skywalk during our visit to Macau in June but at last I'm too scared to go up there and we went to 360° revolving restaurant for buffet lunch instead. Therefore, I've swore to myself that I will definitely challenge Skywalk the next time I visit Macau!

Many of you must have think that why I'm willing to pay 788 HKD just for that 20 minutes walk around the tower but there's actually many things that you can do rather than just walking (eg. sliding). Take a look at the video below and you will realize how fun is it (kindly ignore the unrelated preview picture)!

4. Hotel Hopping
One bonus point why I want to visit Macau again - hotel hopping! I am serious. Has anyone mentioned that you must visit every hotels when you're here in Macau? Every hotels has different things to offer and the architecture itself is a visual delight as well. For eg. Venice-inspired interior designs and gondola ride at The Venetian Macau, Wynn Hotel's performance lake, Grand Lisboa Hotel in the shape of a lotus leaf, Dreamworks activities including Dreamworks All Star Parade and Meet & Greet at Sands Cotai Central, Golden Pathway which composed by 78 gold bars under the floor at Grand Emperor Hotel and etc. Most of the hotels do provide free shuttle bus from one to another hence it's not a problem to get around Macau especially for hotel hopping.

It's only 5 months past since I traveled to Macau and I can still remember every single thing includes the map of Macau (yes, I actually memorized it lol). As I've mentioned, previously was more of a relaxing trip while now I'm determined to return to Macau with a food mission to make the trip even more interesting and I wish to explore the city as much as I can. Below are the food list which I've compiled from various bloggers, travel books and also the locals that I wish to conquer all if I'm so lucky to be chosen as one of the winner:

Rather than stating why you should send me for this superb opportunity, I can't find any reasons why you shouldn't as I'm being such a hardworking one doing all kind of research of Macau and I have a rough itinerary in my mind already. I still have some MOP (currency of Macau) left from previous trip. :P Once again, thank you Nuffnang Malaysia and Macau Government Tourist Office (MGTO) for this awesome getaway!
