Pucker Up with MakeUpOverloaded!

We accidentally stumbled across MakeUpOverloaded across the Internet and we are thrilled that they are from Malaysia!

We have so many clothes, shoes, bags, and accessories sold online and we just realised that we cant find any beauty or make up items sold online in Malaysia. Well, we do have 3 listed on our side panel now but honestly, 3 aren't enough for our big appetite to look pretty!

MakeUpOverloaded started not long ago selling Make Up & Beauty Essentials and they've been bringing in quite a number of thumbs up items. Among all the collection of eye shadows, eye liners, mascaras, shimmer sticks, brushes, what we love the most is their collection of lipsticks!

PC241474

Here we've picked out all the lipsticks they have available for pre-order at RM23/each which includes postage as well and they are in such lovely colours!






Purchasing lipsticks online can be quite tricky because even buying off from our local make up stores might end up not bringing the right lipstick colour home due to the lighting and differences in hand and face skin tone when testing at the store or over the counter.

So when buying online, make sure you've done full research on them, don't be shy to ask questions and if there's no model picture available of the lipstick colour shown on lips, request for one so that you have a clearer picture on what is the actual colour on the lips.

Have fun!!

Feelin The Blues?

How was your holiday, Republikans?

We had a blast during Chinese New Year (although we weren't too lucky with card games such as "21" and "In Between") and surprisingly, we managed to celebrate Valentine's Day too!

We stumbled across this quiet little spanish restaurant called Sentidos Tapas at Starhill Gallery while walking around Bintang Walk, and thought to give it a try as the restaurant was not packed at all compared to the other restaurants that we walked by. We ordered their Valentine's Day Platter to share which cost us RM70/set. The set consisted of 4 delicious grilled Tiger Prawn bites, a piece of Chicken thigh, a slice of mango-infused Fish and a small serving of scallop. The overall taste was just slightly above average when compared to other fine dining restaurants, but the grilled chicken leg had to be one of the best pieces of chicken we've ever tasted!

So, Tong Tong Chiangs and Gong Xi Nis are now over and once again we are back to the usual working Monday. We're feeling the blues today and that's why we arranged a little something to perk up our day with and we would like to share it with you just in case you feel the same too! Check out this funky collage!

Hope that this will cheer up your Monday! We love that little car clutch!

365 Days of Summer with Victoria's Secret

When you get to enjoy 365 days of Summer, with the occasional patches of rain in Malaysia, the island lovers in us will never need to worry about having enough layers to keep ourselves warm during Spring, Fall or Winter.

Come the end of February, we will be heading to a rather untouched island off the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia - Somewhere much less commercialized than Redang or Perhentian Island. So we're in desperate need of a new Bikini set and after a fruitless high and low search, realized the rarity of those colourful and irresistibly skimpy swimwear pieces in KL - think Victoria's Secret!

Previously, we've been a pretty loyal customer to a certain swimwear seller at the flea market at The Curve, which to our horror, no longer exists!! Not sure if it's permanent or just during this festive season as most of the vendors there are Chinese, but we sure hope that they will be back soon because we can't find any decent bikinis at non wallet-busting prices.

We saw some pretty amazing ones at Victoria's Secret; price-wise however, not that amazing.
So, we could only look and drool.

Here are some of our favourite picks from their collection of Bandeaus, Halters, Tankinis and Triangle Tops from Victoria's Secret to give you some ideas for your future bikini shopping!

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

TEMPERATURES RISE AT MERCEDES-BENZ FASHION WEEK
SLS AMG & E-Cabriolet Exclusive Market Debut for Bryant Park Season Finale

NEW YORK, NY – Despite snowy conditions for the start of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week this February 11-18, 2010, the Bryant Park tents are red hot with the New York debut of the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG and E-Class Cabriolet.

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2010 – People and Atmosphere - Day 1

While not on sale until spring 2010 and a yearlong wait list, the 2011 SLS AMG is the most eagerly anticipated sports car to hit the international car market. Its first New York appearance is the runway shows in Bryant Park, a backdrop worthy of its status given the 60 plus designers showcasing their fall collections and more than 100,000 attendees expected to descend on the tents for this “fair well” season before the shows move to Lincoln Center in September.

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG with its iconic gullwing doors and innovative technology draws design inspiration from the 1954 300 SL “Gullwing” first introduced at the New York Auto Show nearly 56 years ago. The SLS AMG is the first car developed from the ground up by AMG, Mercedes-Benz wholly owned performance car builders, and is available in nine distinct paint colors - ranging from the AMG Le Mans Red to AMG Monza Grey Magno to AMG Alubeam Silver, a new paintwork process used nowhere else in the world that lets paint shine like liquid metal.

The sporty interior of the SLS AMG features a central “aviation engineering” design theme and is reflected in the wing-shaped dashboard, the center console in the style of a jet’s operating console, and four air-vents reminiscent of aircraft engines. The sport seats are upholstered in hand-sewn, single-tone Designo leather with a choice of seven different color combinations including seat stitching and piping.

The SLS AMG engine is built on the overall AMG principle of "one man, one engine," where every single engine is handcrafted from start to finish by a single Master Mechanic at the high-tech plant in Alfalterbach, Germany. The SLS AMG 6.2-liter, front-mid V8 engine creates 563 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque propelling the super sports car from 0 to 60 mph in less than four seconds.

Innovative design at the tents is not limited to the SLS AMG, but also the 2011 E-Class Cabriolet, the newest Mercedes-Benz open top, two-door, four-passenger convertible that joins the highly successful 9th generation E-Class line of sedans, coupes and wagons.

In keeping with the motto "four seasons, four people," year-round usability was top priority for engineering the new E-Cabriolet. Features that ensure four season, open-top driving fun include the electric AIRCAP® wind deflector. This new system is deployed at the touch of a button, and greatly reduces wind turbulence inside the vehicle’s cabin while creating a pool of warm air around the occupants. AIRCAP® eliminates the installation procedure for conventional wind deflectors, retains accessibility to both rear seats, and doesn't spoil the clean lines of the Cabriolet's side profile image. Optional equipment includes the next-generation AIRSCARF® heating system integrated into the front seat backrests, which blows warm air from adjustable vents in the head restraints to warm the neck and shoulder area like an invisible scarf.

Comfortable travel with the roof closed is ensured by a sound-dampening soft-top, which comes standard and provides a high level of sound insulation. With the roof closed, the E-Class Cabriolet is one of the quietest interiors in its class. The roof can be opened or closed at the touch of a button within 20 seconds – and even while driving at speeds of up to 25 mph.

The new Cabriolet also offers the most extensive safety equipment package in this vehicle category with innovations one would expect from a Mercedes-Benz vehicle. Highlights include roll-over protection, reinforced A-pillars and B-pillars and seven standard airbags with the first Mercedes Cabriolet to feature headbags, which are housed in the door paneling.

“Beyond the fully redesigned exterior, the amount of new safety and lifestyle features in this four-seat convertible will provide enjoyment and peace of mind for those that love top down driving,” said Lisa Holladay, Manager, Brand Experience Marketing at Mercedes-Benz USA. “This convertible is the equivalent of having the perfect black dress that’s right for any occasion.”

The 2011 SLS AMG and the 2011 E-Class Cabriolet will be available at Mercedes-Benz dealerships nationwide in spring 2010. Pricing has not been released.

Reptilian Influence

We were recently introduced to the interestingly named Swagdolls, so we took a peek into their site, and we what they had to offer, from soul vintage dresses to highly-irresistible reptilian clutches. Unlike most of the other online boutiques, we've got to say that Swagdolls does stand out with their unusual range of fashionable items, which is a definite plus for us!

Swagdolls

We like their very colourful and fresh-looking fashion wear, which caters more for chic and trendy college goers, as well as sophisticated young working adults. Girls like us could definitely use a tip or two from them on how to stand out!

We spotted a whole put-together outfit from their collection that we thought was cool enough to be shared with all of you.

Swagdolls-4

We adore this vintage brown sleeveless dress, which goes extremely well with that brown thick belt. Although the whole match was more or less of the same colour, which can be a boring thing, it really doesn't seem boring at all!

Swagdolls-2

Oh, we really don't know how we could have missed these gorgeous bangles. Pleated with Mithril-like metal, these bangles comes in 3 different, versatile colours. Pop two of them on your wrists with just about any outfit of the day and you're definitely ready to hit the streets looking glamorous.

Swagdolls-1

Is there anything more beautiful than this? We had this unique reptilian clutch in mind when we were wondering what would be a perfect way to complete the outfit. Usually when we head out to the malls or any normal retail boutiques, reptilian clutches are almost always of the same colours and designs - Plain and safe. However, this one made our heart skip a beat as we were taking in just how exotic it looked.

Spring/Summer 2010 Couture Show Paris Fashion Week

Participating in Paris Fashion Week, the Spring/Summer 2010 Couture show of Lebanese designer Georges Chakra was held on January 25, 2010 in Paris, at L'École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts.

Drawing inspiration from nature's beauty, Chakra's collection treads the fine line between reality and fantasy, while staying true to the feminity of women.

A collection of forty three dresses was presented characterized by varying geometric lines, contemporary designs, contrasting hues combined with delicate necklines and asymmetrical cuts.

20100125FD001_Paris_Fashion

All shades reflect summer tonalities: flamboyant pink-orange of sunset, flashes of metallic blue, sparkling gold and silver and the eternal beauty of black and white, create unparalleled elegance and sophistication.

Textures came in an endless variety ranging from luscious layers of chiffon, tulle, organza, lace, to satin and silk embroidered with sequins, feathers, rhinestones and pearls. With its magical touch, this outstanding collection will undoubtedly leave in its wake a breath of sunshine and a gust of shimmering light.

Egyptian actress and well known pan-arab figure Youssra wearing a Chakra's dress, Egyptian director E'inas Al Daghidi, French actress Cyrielle Claire as well as a large audience of international press and VIPs gave the designer a well deserved standing ovation at the end of his show.
