This blog is about all things girly from makeup review, manicure visits to pre-loved clothes sale. Occasionally I'd write something that I shop but not necessary girly stuff :P

My favourite brands include
Majolica Majorca, Zara, Jill Stuart, Maquillage, Etude House, Kitschen & Mary Magdalene. Yes, I do love Japanese brands.

Nose 1U Bargain Sale

I was spending K's birthday at 1 Utama before I realized that there's a Nose Bargain Sale at the Bargain Corner! Yes, that's the infamous Bargain Corner that has Nine West's shoes at RM50! Ok back to the Nose Bargain Sale, the best thing about it is, they have tonnes of shoes at my size! I'm a size 8-9. Not only they have my size, the stocks there are hardly touched! It should be the 3rd day of the sale and yet there are still a lot which are still quite good. And guess how much are they? RM10 each for every pair in the house! They aren't a lot of designs left. So in the end I got 3 pairs, hehehe~ It could cost RM150 before sale! All in all, I'm happy with my purchase, lalala!

My favourite is the ropey one!

Auto Braiding Machine

My colleague bought an auto braiding machine from Perth a long time ago. She never got to use it because it causes her hair to tangle. So she brought it to the office so that I can try it out. The instructions were quite direct and simple. It is, after all meant for teens... or younger.

First, put a strand of hair on one end and another strand of hair on the other end. Secure them by releasing the push button (if I remember correctly, there was only 1 button on that machine). On the same button, press down to start the twisting process, not too long though, cuz it'll tangle your hair! Next, press up again to release your hair from the clams. The box set even came with colorful beady hair clips. Secure the braid with a clip. Voila, I look like a brat in her teens again! And the effect is quite amazing. It's the first time I seen such a machine so I'm quite amazed by it. Now I want one for myself!

The brand name is Conair. Not too sure if they are available locally.
My colleague said it cost less than AUD10! It's quite a fun machine for that price~

Ettusais Cheek Color in Pink

Got this uber cute blusher from the Shiseido's drugstore brands' warehouse sale at Summit. I know that Ettusais (pronounced as Ettu-say) is not really a drugstore brand as it has counters at Isetan Gardens Mid Valley and KLCC but somehow the brand's products  ended up there.

This blusher has small lamé beads and a very smooth texture. The color is just right as it is not too dramatic or too light when applied. At first I was feeling a little skeptical because it looks matte and I avoid matte blushers at all cost. It was quite a pleasant surprise when the effect was silky with a little shimmer ^_^. It also comes with a cute puff, which is attached at the bottom of the case. The puff can be washed and reused.

There's one thing that needs to be careful of though. Normally, for me, I will apply my blusher from near the nose upwards to the apple of my cheeks in circular motions. But if I use this method with the blusher, the color will become too intense, producing a 'Chinese Opera' effect! So, the trick is to dap the puff lightly on the cheeks instead.

And guess how much it cost? RM25. Yup it's a bargain~! The retail price should be about RM60-70! Oh yea, you can buy the refill to save up on the casing cost! Check out Ettusais SG (no Malaysian site available) for more info.

Quite a dandy casing. I like Ettusais' clean but cute packaging!

On the right is the puff. It was white in color before use :P

Majolica Majorca website is now showing it's Fairy Sadistic theme. In the website, there's an amazing animation with cute illustrations! I took notice of a particular cat in the animation. When I saw it, it reminded me of Mr. C, my cat. Although the difference is that the cat is black and Mr. C is orange white. They were wearing almost the same thing! Now that's what I call cute!

P.S: Have I mentioned that I'm a huge fan of Majolica Majorca?

Mr. C during his ear infection period. He has to wear a cone to protect himself from accidentally scratching his ears.

The cat from the website's animation. So cute!
