Timeless Style: Audrey Hepburn

I love Audrey. She is so elegant and classy, her sense of style is timeless. Audrey was born Audrey van Heemstra Ruston in Belgium in 1929....*she's not American? or British? I'm so ignorant* thats basically all i know about her hahahaahah~ the rest i supposed you could google her, no point of repeating those..

Anyway her style is always elegant and simple with just the right amount of sexiness. She'd opt for capri pants, ballet flats, her famous trademark the little black dress, full skirt, short string pearls or something less feminine but made it look sexy like button-down men's shirts, huge hats and sunglasses. She made it her style and trademark and it remain in fashion until now.

the best thing about her style is that anyone can have it, no matter what budget you have its do-able then all you need is class. Keep it slick and simple, you can't go wrong (well at least won't stray far)

the key to her look is:
  1. know your body and work it to your advantage. Experiment and see what works best for you.
  2. Dress comfortably. there is no point of being all high fashion but you are suffering from it. The the que from Audrey, when everyone else is wearing heels she opt for ballet shoes/flats.
  3. Good Posture. Do not slouch at any circumstances. Audrey was a ballerina before she was an actress so she have that perfect posture.
  4. Simple Make up. Keep it simple and light. less is actually more!
  5. Be confident! You are just as beautiful when you are confident with yourself.

True Spa

Last week my sister and i went to True Spa for a relaxing aromatherapy massage. With that package we got a FOC foot spa. well we got to choose either a jacuzzi bath or the foot spa we chose the later.

The treatment was great, the used excellent massage techniques, we fell asleep through out the treatment. only that the product used was aromatically weak, which defeat the 'aromatherapy' purpose, you get what i mean?

They have great facility from swimming pool to manis and paddys, spas...i'm not sure if they had facial treatment.

True Spa is located at the 4th floor of Jaya 33. I did some searching (online) and i notice a lot of negative sentiment mostly due to difficulties on getting a spot / appointment but we find that it is not the case. we never....well at least for now had any problem on setting on our appointment dates so i guess its just a lousy luck then?

btw this is not a paid endorsement just a mere show and tell (hence the lack of info of the establishment)
The waiting area

This was where we got our complimentary foot spa....arghhhh its been a long time that our feet got some pampering.

mind the ugly leg =p...my feet,foot, legs was so happy with the spa treatment. i mean so doesn't...the relaxing massage and all ^_^
heeheheh can you see the smile on my feet? =p

The spa room where we had our aromatherapy massage. We didn't get to use the shower nor the jacuzzi coz its was not apart of our package, booohooo~ but we enjoyed the relaxing massage

Product Review: b.liv Off With Those Heads

I may be selling i Nuovi's products but it doesn't mean that I do not have any other favorite. I do have other makeup favorite like...i do love MAC, Giorgio Armani, Bobbi Brown hmmm just to name a few but I don't like 'all' their range just few selected products that is actually suitable for me.

And today I thought of doing a product review on b.liv by Cellnique. I'm writing because I simply LOVE this product. While I surf around the net i get mix review on this product but for me I only have 1 opinion that is it is a great black head remover product...ok ok before you skeptics question me, just hear me out...
First of all when i use this product it didn't magically remove my blackheads, which when i first use this product i thought that its a disappointment but then... when i examine closely my pores (after an over night application) it seems that my pores are slightly enlarged and I noticed that my blackheads are almost on the tip of my pores so i gently pushes it and wallah...it came right off!!!

Its amazing, it came right off with out the 'extra' effort (we all know that black heads are stubborn and painful to rid off) and painless too so thats why I LOVE it!! After removing it cleanse it and apply toner and whatver skincare you have. Then you pores will be 'back to normal'...no worries your pores did not get any larger that it already is. ;)

Yes it does need a little work (no magic in puffing out the blackheads) but it is non the less effective blackhead remover. You can simply save a couple of hundreds of facial treatment with just this product and do you own facial at home....

My verdict in the nut shell:-

Would i buy again?:    YES definitely. 
Do i like it?  :   Isn't it obvious? I love it!
Does it work? : Hell yeah....though it does need some work but it still works
Whats the price? : its USD$49 Malaysian RM I'm not too sure but its not all cheap so that a bit of a downer
                            the bright side is that you only use just a tiny amount on the affected area... : -/
I think its available in selected Watson or Guardian ...

Pixie Cut is IN

hi, i know that its been a while and I'm sorry. I was busy with my son's birthday and in between being sick and tired...but anyway i was sitting and resting while watching TV and E! did some kind of coverage about fashion and hairstyles and they spotted the latest look/makeover. The Pixie cut.

To be honest I'm not a big fan of the Pixie cut but as i briefly scan thru some of my Mag and it seem to be true Pixie is IN....every well it seem that lately many celebs are sporting the cut. We know famous pixies that totally rocking the look Charlize T and Halle Barry (these to superstars can rock any look if you ask me) but then slowly the style is picking up and stars like Katie Holmes and bff Victoria Beckham is sporting the look (well Holmes did a slightly longer and more edgy pixie look) and they pull it off then I'm not sure the time line is but Alissa Milano did the pixie cut and she look slick and stunning. Then we see Natalie Portmen rocking the look well she kindda have to coz she did shave her locks but regardless she looked STUNNING and more out going if you ask me. Then we also have Salma Blair, Mena Suvari, Sharon Stone and even Jamie Lee Curtis...and i think theres a long list of celeb pixies that seem to be blocked in my mind.

But now the more recent Pixie is Ema Wotson. Yeah she chopped off her signature long wavy locks for a Pixie look...I was surprised to see her new look, but i think she look fabulous although I kindda prefer her long locks (call me bias but i love long locks esp if its wavy lol) She chopped of her locks right after finish filming the last Harry Potter.

She says in her FB
"Dear all. Cut my hair off a few days ago... Feels incredible. I love it. I've wanted to do this for years and years; it's the most liberating thing ever. Hope you like. Big love from Emma x"

I guess its true when ever i cut my hair shot that is how i feel too. I cut my hair alot...its rare of me to have LONG hair. Its mainly because i have fine hair and its too much of a hassle for me to deal with it especially when you are a hijab wearer so a short boyish hair or pixie is the way to go although i never went Pixie before coz i have chubby cheeks hahahahaha but anyway its a great look for thick or fine hair and if you have great facial bone structure it'll be even fantastic as it'll show character and people will notice you in an instant!

What is Pixie cut?

A pixie cut refers to a short woman's hairstyle generally short on the back and sides of the head and slightly longer on the top. Women began exploring shorter hairstyles in the 1920s[citation needed] and was widely popular by rebelling women known as flappers. The pixie cut has occasionally been brought into the spotlight, being worn by world famous stars and models such as Alyssa Milano, Natalie Portman, Keira Knightley, Rihanna, Katie Holmes, Agyness Deyn, Mandy Moore, Elisha Cuthbert, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Greene, Lauren Holly, Nena, and, recently, Emma Watson.

Depending on the style, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others. Pixies are very easy to care for and can be worn casually, or dressed up for special occasions. - source: Wikipedia.

And here is Emma with her new look...i think she look stunning don't you think? but i don't think that i can rock this look though ;-)

Applying False Eyelases a tutorial by Kandee Johnson

I love Kandee Johnson, she's a Celebrity Makeup artist and she makes the best makeup tutorial ever! i love her, although Michelle Phan and Panache81 does great tutorials too but i love kandee's most. Then i just discover Audfaced, she's fantastic too especially in special effects makeup, look them up in You tube. I'm sure you'll love them too.

Anyway here is Kandee's tutorial on how to apply mascara, listen and watch carefully coz she gives out tips too.

In case you missed her tips:
  1. Bend the fake lashes so that its in shape.
  2. make sure you get the glues on the ends of the lashes (because this part usually is hard to stick)
  3. once applied touch up the lash line with eyeliner, so that it'll look more natural
  4. * you can gently curl up your lashes after applying the false eyelash.
  5. apply mascara gently after applying false lashes so that your lash and the fake lash mashed together (it'll look more natural)
Fake eyelash usually doesn't need any cutting but it depends. Try and see your fake lash, if it fit your eye shape nicely. watch this tutorial below...

I hope that this entry will help you in applying your falsies. This may take you some practice but its worth it coz it'll make your eyes VavaVoom~
