The End of 2013

Tuesday, December 31, 2013 /

Finally, today is the last day of 2013

2013... WHAT A YEAR... been through a lot of things in this year. Never thought this year could be a year full of disasters to me, to my family as well. What hurts more than the loss of family members? lately, another pet, babee, left us as well because of sickness. Sometimes, I wonder why God makes us suffer the pain of loss? Why there's death in this world? I know there must be a reason, but I just can't stop thinking since the first loss. from now on, my family will not be the same anymore. Whenever I think of this, my heart aches... I am not gonna mention what happened to my brother, and I do not wish to mention anymore. Pls don't ask me anymore I would sincerely appreciate that. Though there're disasters, I also thankful that happiness is still around me. I am thankful for the family members I have, started to cherish more the moment spend with them. Also, I am thankful for bf who accompanied me throughout the year, from sad to happy. Whenever something happened, he would be around. Of course, those friends that I have in 2013, you guys are awesome! Sometimes, you will only know who's the sincere ones when something happens.. :) 

2014 new year's resolutions?

I am hoping to earn more money and bring my family to travel around. Spend more time with family members and share the good things with them. 

What about myself? I need to be more positive! Learn to be more sociable and be a wise man!

Korea Must-Buy @ Lotte Mart

Monday, December 30, 2013 / , , , ,

Hey-yo! I am back from Seoul! 

I know I haven't been updating my blog for quite some time, oh no blame on the trip, had so much fun that I don't feel like doing anything! Thanks to my boyfriend, who sponsored the trip! It's the biggest surprise for this year. *love* Speaking of Seoul, it's a beautiful city that worth to visit for more than one time! I had been to Korea before when I was 16, followed my aunt joined the tour. Tour is never my favorite, spend most of the time in the bus and every place has time limit. Free and easy is a good choice for young people who like to explore places nowadays, because of the advanced technology, it's so easy to access internet in anywhere. Though in Korea there's a difficulty in communicating, even some of em are fluent in Chinese, you can also download those Korea basic languages apps just in case. 

In one of the days, me and boyfriend paid a visit to the Lotte Mart in Seoul Station, it is just right beside of the subway station. Lotte Mart is a must-visit-place whenever you're traveling to Korea, because you can get to buy all the Korean snacks or food at here! Also it's a good place to buy souvenir for family and friends.

Saturday, December 14, 2013 / , ,

Challenges are fun, especially when it is group activities and we have to fight for the victory together! Last weekend, joining Maxis 4G Bloggers Blaze for the very first time with Nuffnangers, it was a huge event and what I can tell is it was awesome and a fruitful day! We gathered at The Curve early in the morning, I slept for two hours only before the day! D: I heard it's gonna be very extreme and Ben, the emcee told me to be prepared to "get wet" and makeup ruined! O-M-G, pray that it would be fun XDD

Wearing the same heart of tee together with princess povy *love*

Dandelion Accessories Store @ TANGS, One Utama

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 / , ,

Choosing for clothing is easy, as there're wide variety of stores out there. When it comes to fashion sense, everyone has different perception of it, some may prefer simple and elegant, some may go for sporty, some may like unique and outstanding, blah blah blah... To me, an outfit without accessories, it would be rather dull and kinda lack of something. Yes! Seriously! It's like you are well-dressed without your make-up. Can you imagine you are wearing a beautiful outfit but you didn't wear any make up? 

Recently, I found an accessories store, Dandelion, which are selling variety of accessory lines, covering from top to toe such as hair bands, sunglasses, necklaces, earrings, bangles, rings, belts, etc... Another good thing about Dandelion is it conceptualized by the latest runway styles and seasons, consumers get to know the trendy accessories, get it at affordable price and make it as an embellishment to your outfit! 

Dandelion store that I went was in TANGS Departmental Store, One Utama. Sadly it doesn't have a clear signboard to show you the name of the store, but you can spot the store just right behind the Pandora store.

This year, the first Christmas gift that I've received is the sloggi WN2013 collection, Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice. Aww! what a surprise! *love*

What can you find from this collection? 
Aztec, love, red...

Casio Exilim EX-TR15 Review | Make-up Mode & Skin Brightening Mode

Saturday, November 30, 2013 / , , ,

If you ask me what is my must-have-item in my bag, I would say camera. As a blogger, I can't live without camera, camera is my earning tool and also my daily essential, it records and captures down everything in my life. I love taking pictures, when I look back the pictures, I reminisce those memories.. However, I think the biggest problem for girls is we have to photoshop or enhance the pictures, which takes a lot time to do it! Ahhhhhh!!!! Fortunately, Casio seems to know girls' needs, especially the magic self-portrait camera, TR series, I am in love with it! Now they have modified a new better magic camera of tr series, TR15, which is the latest one with enhanced features and design. if you have read my post (here), you should know! 

I go for white which is my all-time-favorite color! *love*

 TR15's design is rounded shape, a more stylish and comfortable design.
Metallic finishing of tr15 is so elegant and high-end. 

What I love the most is the lens which coated with gold plate
It makes the whole camera become more outstanding and classy. awww!
I personally love the white one, pink one is the best-seller tho!

First of all, I need to clarify again TR15 is same as TR350, which is named at China. Casio TR series has been known as "the savior of ugly girl" lol, to be exact, 猪扒变美女 Hahaha! This is why so many girls wanting to get this so badly and always out of stock! Previously, tr150 already is the best-seller, but now I bet tr15 has become the mainstream. 

So the first thing will check out of course is the make-up mode and skin brightening mode, which already enhanced and upgraded, you can change the mode into natural mode or brightening mode as you like! Don't worry, I'll show you the comparison of what is the difference between natural mode and brightening mode!

MGP Label, My Glamour Place | online blogshop

Friday, November 29, 2013 /

Online shopping is my current addiction, you know, girls will never get enough of clothing. XDD Lately, I've got myself two rompers from MGP and the quality is superb! I found that Singapore blogshop emphasizes more on quality and design, that's why it's hardly to see the same design appear on other blogshop, and also the quality of clothing is assured. So I personally think that choosing Singapore's blogshop is a wise decision! :D

What I've got from MGP Label

#1 Coline Skorts Romper in Watercolor

 I love this romper! It fits me well!
My friends keep praising my outfit when I hang out with them! X)

Love the prints and pleated cuts that make my outfit look so outstanding, 
need no accessories as the romper itself already very standout.  

#2 Rowan Romper in White
 Fell in love with this romper at my first sight!
The Aztec design and monotone help to stand out the outfit as well.

 I kind of mix and match with a knit top and it's still looking good!
Apparently the romper is still the main focus of this outfit. X)

MGP has a lookbook category on their website, how sweet!
For those who have no idea what to dress up, you can refer to this!

How about a long dress for your fall?

MGP Label is one of the leading online store in Singapore & Malaysia. Their apparels are of high quality and workmanship. They offer free shipping to Malaysia (via Pos Malaysia) or customers can opt for Poslaju registered tracking at less than RM6. 

Good news for my readers! MGP is having a promotion of 10% discount on regular priced item for those who quote "CHENELLE" while check out, exclusively for my readers only! :D Valid till 15th December 2013. 

So many occassions in December! Guess it's time to shop for your clothing now! :D


Men and Skin Care?

Sunday, November 24, 2013 / ,

Today I would like to talk about my point of view of men who take care of their skin. I personally think that, men should take care of their skin regularly, because some men really have a oily and unkept skin!

OK granted that most men never really go for facials, but some never even use any skin care products, and this sometimes results in a lot of blackheads and whiteheads appearing on the nose and T zone, like so obvious! Girls, do you agree with me?

No offence, but what I think is, guys who have clear and matte skin give an approachable and attractive image. I am not saying men who have acne and blackheads are not approachable, but I think good skin definitely is an advantage, besides good features of course.

I found out that a couple of celebrities who I admire have a good skin too! One of the Chinese celebrities is Andy Lau.

He’s 52 years old but he’s still looking good like he is only 30+ years old!
I assume he really takes care of his skin very well.

A Caucasian celebrity I love is Justin Timberlake!
Justin may only be 32 years old, but I find his youthful complexion to be so attractive!

Men, who really take care of their skin, can be sexy and attractive. Having a good skin complexion would definitely be more attractive than those who have rough skin.

However, if you’ve noticed, some of the guys are overly obsessed with their own face, for example, look at the mirror every hour. I think that is considered as vanity, when guys are too obsessed about their own faces LOL.

I personally think that men who are metrosexual, who willing to spend on grooming and appearance, are fine and acceptable. They will spend on skin care products, gyms, hairdressers, etc. Slowly  but surely I’ve noticed that more and more guys in Kuala Lumpur are beginning to take some effort in personal grooming and that’s a good thing!

My boyfriend is one of those born with a good skin complexion, however I always ensure that I remind him that nothing lasts forever, especially if you don’t take care of it. What I’m trying to stress is that proper care of men’s complexion is important!

Now you guys know girls like me prefer men who take care of themselves, its time to make a small difference to your life, start to look good and feel good, and let the girls come to you *wink*?

One of the steps to get a great looking and non-oily complexion is cleansing. Cleansing is important because it cleanses your skin to unclog all dirt, oil and impurities from your skin. It refreshes your skin and makes you look good and feel good.

Nivea Men Total Anti Acne Mud Foam contains 0% harsh ingredients (i.e: Salicylic Acid), uses natural Magnolia Bark Extract that is gentle, yet effectively combat 10 acne signs without causing skin to get dry, easily irritated and red. Skin is clear and acne free making men 10x more confident.

10 signs of acne include bacteria, blackheads & whiteheads, blemish, dark acne spots, red marks, enlarged pores, acne scars, oiliness,  dull skin, uneven skin.

NIVEA MEN. It Starts With You.

Modbox | Beauty Box

Monday, November 18, 2013 / , ,

I supposed most of the people who read blog are familiar with the beauty box that bloggers always talk about. Beauty box is a good deal for people who always like to try new products or do not wish to waste money. There are so many beauty box brands in the market, this time I would like to introduce Modbox, which offers the cheapest price for a beauty box! Don't believe me? Modbox is only RM9 excluding delivery postage. I AM NOT JOKING, IT'S RM9 PER BOX! Some of you may think, 'so cheap, sure got commitment la.' Let me tell you something, Modbox has no commitment or monthly plan, you just have to buy one and you get to choose the products yourself. Isn't it super worthy??

For a RM9 beauty box, you get to choose 3 products and add-on other products you like (optional, extra pay amount). To me, RM9 for 3 products is more than enough.
