Thanksgiving 2015

// In Four Seasons Florence last Thanksgiving //
Time flew by so quickly and again, I'm seated here on my sofa reflecting the year of 2015 and asking myself "What am I thankful for this year?". Last year at this very day, I was celebrating Thanksgiving with my love and a few close friends in Florence. It was such beautiful memories when I think about it.

This year, I definitely want to thank God, most of all, for yet another blessed year. My family will be celebrating a huge event soon and I couldn't be happier. We have an additional member in the family - a beagle. Friends that I love and care for are still holding on strong with our friendship. On health wise, everyone I cared for including myself are still good. I travelled quite a bit too this year. I manage to visit the Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Xi'An for the terracotta warriors. Oh, and not forgetting that Diva In Me has grown too and we welcome a new beauty blogger - Sharon, who has been blogging a few of our beauty posts =)

Our new addition to the family - Coffee the Beagle
Last but not least, I am thankful for you, who is reading this post. I appreciate your time spent reading my blog even if this is your first visit. For those of you who are celebrating this day, Happy Thanksgiving and for those who're traveling, have a safe journey. What are you thankful for this year?

L'Oreal Tint Caresse

We want everything fast these days, even when it comes to makeup. Sometimes (actually most of the time), when I'm in a hurry, I want something to complete my makeover in no time. In fact, I found this product by surprise. It's called L'Oreal Tint Caresse. 

Not only can the L'Oreal Tint Caresse be used as a powder type lipstick, as an eyeshadow and blusher. How cool and easy is that?! It makes my handbag lighter as well, now that I don't need to carry separate blushers and lipsticks. It can, however, get my lips a little dry, especially when I stay in an air conditioned room for a few hours. The problem can be easily rectify; I just dabbed on some L'Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire to keep them moist.

A Year Ago In Paris

Time flew by so quickly. I wish I could freeze time for a while. It was just a year ago, we were in Paris and was breathing in the fall's cool and fresh air. I had the chance to live abroad (posts here) for 2 months and it was a freaking great adventure. This year, I had a huge event to plan for and will not be traveling any time soon. Probably till next year.

Actually the subway station looked deserted because it was a Sunday and we were heading to Chinatown for some hot Vietnamese food =)

Indeed Fillume Volumising Serum

Fill me will you, Indeed? This is how I feel whenever it's time to do my daily facial regime. I love Indeed Labs products ever since I started using it.

With it's latest scientific innovations, this serum has a unique formula of 5 clinically proven peptides designed to work on the skin's matrix, helping to improve the appearance of skin aging.

What is it like?
The texture in this drum is gel-like. It absorbs into the skin almost instantly. It's suitable for any skin type and any age. It feel soft on the skin and has a cooling effect after application. It isn't oily and also unscented.

How to use it?
First, cleanse your skin thoroughly. Then I wipe my face and neck with toner on a cotton. After that, I applied Fillume and the last step would be the moisturizer. I used Fillume together with Hydraluron Moisture Jelly. Alternatively, you can use it together with Fillume Volumizing Moisturizer (as shown in picture above).

What is the results?
I've tried it for 2 weeks and I feel that extra boost and radiant glow on my skin. My fine lines on the forehead, eye and mouth area is less visible. The texture of my skin has gradually improved being more plumped and firmer than before. I believe Fillume has filled me, Indeed.

Who Would I Recommend It To?
I would recommend it to someone who wants to enjoy these 5 Benefits of Fillume:

  1. Restore facial contours
  2. Improve skin firmness, suppleness and elasticity
  3. Improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles
  4. Increase skin's hydration level and stimulate skin renewal
  5. Improve skin tone and texture

Flashback To Xi'An

Days like today, I had a flashback to days when I visited Xi'An, China. It was summer then and the days were so hot! I can still remember to make sure I'm in shorts and sleeveless tops most of the days so that I won't be sweating as much. Almost everyday were 40C (104F)!! So it's pretty crazy. 

Xi'An was definitely memorable and the historical places were magnificent! I'll blog more about that soon. If you have a chance to visit China, do stop by Xi'An to check out the terra-cotta warriors. Have you been to Xi'An?

3 Ways To Wear Gladiators

During summer, the gladiators are very popular. Even now, I think it's still very popular in the southern hemisphere as it's going into the summer season now. Even here in South East Asia, where it's always hot and humid, gladiators can be worn any time of the year. 

When investing in a pair of shoes, I would prefer to wear it more than just once. Apart from it being good looking, I am a fan of comfort as well. Here are 3 ways to wear a pair of gladiators:
  1. Wear it with shorts, like how I do it here. They're great with denim or leather shorts. 
  2. Pair it with a dress, like how Blaire does it here. It looked so simple yet so chic.
  3. Match it with a suede or denim A-line skirt. Definitely give a young vibe and I'm sure you'll get a whole lot of attention.
How would you wear a pair of gladiator?

Shu Uemura x Maison Kitsuné

Shu Uemura
Mr Shu Uemura was a pioneer of blending eclectic global and cultural crossover. He fused Japanese sensibilities with techniques learned in Hollywood into products as part of the brand's DNA. Out of his love for Paris and fashion, he opened a beauty boutique in St. Germain-des-Prés. 

Maison Kitsuné
Glidas Loaëc and Masaya Kuroki, co-founders and creative directors, started Maison Kitsuné in 2002. A trip to Japan inspired them to bring their passions together around a single concept: a on-of-a-kind brand that unites fashion, music and designs. The name "Kitsuné" meaning "fox" in Japanese and a symbol of versatility, struck them as the most obvious choice. 

How They Met
From Paris to Tokyo, from fashion and music to beauty, two of the world's foremost innovators collide East and West to create a neo-classic interpretation of Shu Uemura's art of beauty.

3 Ways To Layer With Blazer

Blazer - BB Dakota

Since it's fall, I thought it would be great to share 3 ways to layer with blazer. Though I'm from Malaysia and it's always warm and humid throughout the year, it doesn't hurt to wear a nice, comfortable blazer in places with air condition or to work. 

3 Ways To Layer With Blazer
  1. Short sleeve cotton tee, like what I'm wearing in these pictures.
  2. A tie-neck blouse in silk, polyester or crepe materials. Just as long as it doesn't wrinkle easily and comfortable to move in. Try a contrasting color to your blazer and match it with a pencil skirt.
  3. Sweaters and knitted top. These are great for cooler weather especially in places with fall weather. 
How do you like to wear your blazer?

Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip

To Bobbi, luxury is all about things that are timeless and of the best quality.  Luxe Lip glides effortlessly and comfortably with bold, maximum coverage in just one swipe. There are 30 shades, from subtle pinks to bright oranges and deep reds. The pointed tip makes it easy to line and define the outer edges of the lips while the flat, rounded tear drop shape of the bullet provides a smooth application. 

Bobbi Brown's Luxe Lip is what I described as ending my makeup session on a sweet note.  It's the ultimate feeling of pure luxury and the perfect dose of glamor. Even when I had to re-apply my lipstick after meals, whipping the lipstick out of my bag catches a lot more attention than usual, whether it's the gold packaging or the gorgeous shade on my lips. That's probably the diva in me.

Pink October

In a few more days, October will be over. Again, I would like to know if you've checked your breast? If you have not, by reading, I hope it would be a reminder to you to have your breast checked. Even better if you have a yearly medical check, which includes breast check by the doctor as well. I've done my medical check last week and by next week, I'll be able to collect my report. I've not heard any alarming news from the doctors during the process last week. I guess I'll take that as a positive sign. 

Recently, I had a friend who's mom passed on due to lung cancer. She's not a smoker and non of her immediate family smokes. By the time she did her medical check due to excruciating pain on her back, her family discovered her cancer was already at the 4th stage. From the day she found out that she had cancer to the day she took her last breath, it was only a year. 

I'm not trying to scare you when you read this but, for you to be aware that your health is important and there are people that care for you. Please take good care of your health by getting your body check yearly. Prevention is better than cure.

Tee For Thoughts

Current/Elliott - Cross Back Muscle Tee (similar here)
It's time to work towards the fall looks. Fall is all about jackets, capes and all the gorgeous looking outerwear. In Malaysia, it's hot all year round so what I can do is to layer it with tees or tank tops. I believe layering can still look really good with these short and non-sleeve type of tops. 

These are some of my favorites. What about yours? Have you start layering already?

Scissors Empire Hair Salon

Stumbling upon Scissors Empire Hair Salon was one of the best thing ever! It all started with just me looking for a place to get my hair washed and blow dried due to convenience sake. Then, as I go for more events, I would drop by to get my hair done as well. I like the way they pay attention to my hair whenever I visit. They're very efficient and the place is tidy and clean every time I'm there.

Smart Casual

Two days ago I was invited to an event by RIMOWA. The dress code was Smart Casual so I picked a pair of denim to match it with a cape. I understand that our weather here in Kuala Lumpur does not need a cape but there's so many choices of cape which is suitable for our summer weather all year round. 

We don't have to pick a wool cape but a blazer cape like mine is great for work and events with smart casual dress code. Matching it with a pencil skirt would look really good too. BB Dakota from Shopbop have some great and affordable capes while DKNY is also one of my favorite brand when it comes to cape.  

What's your preference when dressing up for smart casual events?

Colors In Blocks

Sunglasses - Retrecraft

I'm hoping color-block apparels are still in trend. I find it fun to wear a color-block especially like this one from Karen Millen. Who says office wear can't be interesting? 

I believe this dress is definitely appropriate for work. Especially with a big bag which I can store almost anything in it, add it on with a pair of cool Retrocraft sunglasses and that's you need. If you're going to attend a meeting that day, maybe you can layer it with a blazer (like this one). With all that, you're all set to walk in that office with style! =)

What's your workwear must-have?
