God made burgers on a day when people were all feeling sad and he wanted to cheer everyone up. #NotATrueStory but it certainly feel like it is. Just like my friend Pita, I can never say no to a good burger. That’s why we only had one answer to Hard Rock Café’s invitation to check out the World Burger Tour‘s stop in KL – hell, yes!

Beauty: L’Oréal’s New Identity and Products (Prices, First Impressions)

dsc04604-1_zpsmuyztjr8

Makeup is all about fun and self-expression in my book so I’m totally on board with L’Oréal Paris’ new name and brand direction.

L’Oréal is a trusted brand that’s been around for ages (since 1909!). I remember growing up with it and getting my first ever foundation from their brand years ago. So the rebranding actually came as a surprise – a good one. 😉

They’re now known as L’Oréal Paris Makeup Designer. So what’s behind the longer name?

Don’t just wear makeup, design your look!

The brand is actually encouraging everyone who uses their products to exercise their freedom and self-expression using makeup. They want you to actually design your whole look. It’s 2016, after all.

Travel: The Churchill War Rooms (London, UK)

Note: The Churchill War Rooms is part of Britain’s Imperial War Museums. If you want to check out my write up on the IWM London, click here.

Tucked in a corner by the Clive Steps in London is the entrance to one of my favourite stops during our Europe trip. The inconspicuous door  leading to the Churchill War Rooms’ entrance was already modified to make it easier for people to find it. However, a lot of tourists who visit London still walk past it, not knowing what it actually is and not even noticing it.

The Churchill War Rooms is composed of the Cabinet War Rooms and the Churchill Museum. It is an underground complex built under the Treasury building in London that served as Britain’s command centre during World War II. It is where then Prime Minister Winston Churchill spent most of his time, making the most important decisions and plans back then. The complex was abandoned in August 1945 after WWII and was preserved.

Beauty: Youngblood Cosmetics – Mineral Cosmetics for Flawless Looking Skin

Youngblood, Youngblood Cosmetics, Youngblood Makeup, Beauty, Mineral, Mineral Makeup, Healthy Makeup, Review,

As far as mineral makeup goes, I wasn’t interested in it. Ever. I was given a brand to try once back when I was working for TV and it made me look washed out on camera. Since then, I shunned the idea of going back to it.

Just a couple of years later, I find myself writing about beauty most of the time and the call of mineral makeup is back and a lot harder to resist. Maybe it was time to give it another go?

Enter Youngblood, a makeup line created by aesthetician Pauline Youngblood who has made a career for herself in Hollywood. She often encountered clients with severely traumatised skin (damaged by aesthetic treatments or harsh products) that took months to go back to normal.

Variety.

For people that are going through a healing process for their skin, there are very little makeup options available. So Pauline began working with chemists to come up with a line of cosmetics that are gentle enough even for the most sensitive skin types.

Beauty + Review: Scholl Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System

dsc04228-1_zpseytrjtxz

I’ve been a nail biter from the age of 3 till right about a few months before I turned 24 which basically means I’ve been nail biting most of my life. It was such a nasty habit that was too hard to break and I’m so happy that that phase is over.

I’ve been enjoying pretty nails for over two years now and I gotta say, getting regular mani-pedis is quite addictive. I love seeing how my nails are at the right length, with a straight edge and sides that are gently curved. They look so much prettier now.

Mani-pedis, when done regularly in spas and nail salons, can actually be hard on your wallet. I was enjoying them a lot, to be honest but doing them every weekend was a bit of a stretch on my budget. So last year, I decided to learn how to do my nails on my own.

In this DIY Mani-Pedi journey of mine, I found out that I love how gorgeous my nails look after a good filing. While I do file more than cut, I  still haven’t developed the patience for it.

Seriously. Who loves filing for such a long time? While I enjoy doing my own nails, I do wish that I don’t have to spend so much of my time filing, buffing, and polishing my nails. It takes forever! Oh and in case it isn’t so obvious yet, I’m quite a busy girl!

That’s why when Scholl sent me their new Velvet Smooth Electronic Nail Care System, I was totally excited to try it out.
