The Butterfly Tote Unboxing: Body Beautiful

2:30 PM 26 Comments A+ a-

Hello there again.
So, here we are again and this is the post for the 'untoteing' of The Butterfly Project's 4th Birthday Celebration.

The world citizens of current days (men and women alike) care a lot about their appearances thus make the grooming industry one of the biggest and most successful industry in the world. Some even went to that very extra and risky length to achieve the desired appearances.

As a GLAMpreneur and a blogger, I strive to be at my best self - appearance and confidence wise as I need to be at my best before meeting my clients. Thanks to the The Butterfly Project's 4th Birthday Celebration Tote Bag for thinking of me while preparing the door gifts.

Neesya Cleansing Set
  • Staying fresh all the day long with the innovative Adidas Climacool Shower Gel that releases freshness as I move. The shower gel certainly helps me in my daily routine of meeting people, throughout the day, without having to worry about unpleasant odour. Adidas Climacool Shower Gel sells at RM10.90 each (250 ml).
  • With Neesya Cleansing Set which comprises of 100 ml Gel Cleanser and 75 ml Enzymatic Refiner Scrub, my skin gets the makeover that it is long overdue. The set brightens and revives my skin (which we all know is very much needed). The set sells at RM39.
  • Before heading out the door, don't forget to put on Adidas Climacool Deodorant (35ml @ RM4.99) that enhances the freshness from using the shower gel.

Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist
  • Everybody (men included) needs to protect their skin from the sun's harmful rays. There are lots of products to assist in protecting the skin but my choice would be the ones that are non-sticky, kind and gentle to the skin. Clinelle UV Defense SPF50 (30ml) fits all the category and practical too - very convenient to bring anywhere.
  • I know the girls are thankful for the Mamonde Floral Hydro Mist as it helps to turns the heat down with its cooling effect while replenishing and moisturing the skin with the wonderful smell of Daffodil extracts and mineral water. (120 ml @ RM49)

Pax Moly Aloe vera Soothing Gel
  • Guys also watches their waist line, single and married men alike. I am open to corset-wearing and now with extra assistance from Clinelle Hot Body Shaper Cream (170 ml @ RM89.90), I can say goodbye forever to the unsightly cellulites. With its active ingredients from Organic Brown Algae that trims body shape, it also functions as melano-minimizer for fairer skin. I have been using the cream for the past month and am happy to learn that the waist line is getting smaller.
  • I am a guy that love to mask every month. Thus, when I visited Korea before, I stocked up on the mask and when I saw Clinelle PureSwiss Hdyracalm Sleeping Mask in the bag, I was over the moon. The mask keeps my skin cool and the absorption rate is super fast that I am about to finish my first jar and am looking forward to buy the next one. (60 ml @ RM75.90)
  • As I still have a lot of mask waiting to be used, I have only tried one of Hadabisel Moisturizing Face Mask Extra Rich (pack of 5 sells at RM48.70). The mask contains serum, hyaluronic acid and royal jelly that is luxurious and kind to the dry skin type like mine.
  • Have you ever feel like your skin is literally peeling off and flaky when you wakes up in the morning due to sleeping in  the air conditioned room? I have that problem since forever and now that I have Pax Moly Aloe Vera Soothing Gel, it soothes, relaxes and hydrates my skin after a night sleep. I love the smell and its fast absorption.
So, have any of you uses any of the Body Beautiful products mentioned above? Do share your experience with me.

Appreciate your skin - it is the only one you have.

The Butterfly Tote Unboxing: Face Off

7:38 AM 12 Comments A+ a-

Hello there.
How was your Eid celebration?
I stalked some of you and my oh my, was I impressed and awed with the designs and colours of your baju raya.
Anyway, Salam Eid Mubarak to all.

Of course, any look will be incomplete without any beautiful face works.
And to achieve the beautiful face works, one needs to have all the right equipment and complementing stuff too.

Doorgift worth almost RM1,000!
Thus, this post is about the beautiful gifts that I received during The Butterfly Project's 4th Birthday Celebration. Normally, one will do the unboxing of gifts but for this particular birthday, can I called it 'untoteing' (I am pretty sure there is no such word, so #JanganKecam) as the wonderful gifts came in a beautiful Butterfly Project tote bag?

The total amount of the gifts worth about RM1K (a very generous and lavish doorgift ever!). Thus I will try my best to 'untoteing' the gifts in 3 separate posts namely Face Off, Body Beautiful and Memories Forever.

p/s: Memories Forever might take a while as I have to go back to Sibu, Sarawak to capture all those memories with my family back there!
So, what do we have for the Face Off?

Magically imbued brushes
Way back during my uni years, I used to do MUA jobs to support my study and party life (hahaha). And everytime I beat the person's face during the process, I used to think that I have this amazing power to transform a person to a more beautiful princess. And yes, I still believe in magic so when I saw the amazing 10-piece-brush from Wanderlust Things that they fondly named Unicorn Eye Makeup Brush, I was ecstatic! Now I can perform more magic with the magically imbued brushes! Some people might confuse as to why do one need 10 brushes for eye makeup (just like Ya Na mentioned and she explained them in great length here). Rest assured that each creation serves a purpose in the make up world. And no babe, no unicorns were harmed in the process of forging and imbuing this magnificent strong horn handles. These uniquely beautiful brushes with the finest unicorn hair cost RM89.00 for the whole set.

Life's incomplete without the palette
As we need to make full use of the beautifully strong unicorn-magic-imbued brushes, the W.Lab Pocket Shadow Palette Blooming certainly comes in very handy. You don't want to stand out too much, but don't want to go unnoticed in the office? With its 10 pretty and beautifully pigmented shades, the palette certainly worth having in every girl's makeup case (in some cases, some boys need them too). The earth shades of the palette make it suitable for daily use, thus a must have for all. This is your go to palette - the shades are naturally beautiful and pigmented and not too shimmery. Check out the palette here for only RM90.

A set for the Queen
Done with the eyeshadow - next is to further highlight the eyes as your eyes are the doors to your soul. A drama queen (all the queens in fact) love a dramatically winged eyeliner. So what makes a trustworthy eyeliner? The ones that is quick-dry, waterproof and long lasting! If you are anything like me, I love to put in a double-coat of eyeliner, just to enhance the dramatic look. Thanks to Dolly Wink Liquid Eyeliner WP Super Black [RM69.90 each] and Mamonde Long Lasting Liquid Eyeliner [RM39 each] the dramatic winged eyeliner that every queen deserves is successfully done. And to top that beautifully queen look, brush that  lashes of yours with 1028 Big Eyes Magnifier Mascara [RM59.90 each] for that wonderful coverage, lifted and thickened natural long lashes look.

Beautiful, Halal and It Stays


Don't forget the lips babe! Choose your poison here - match them to your current mood. Thanks to Orkid Cosmetics for this amazing beautiful 4 shades of matte suede liquid lipsticks that are not only amazing, it is of halal certified and is a local brand too [#SupportLocalBrand]. I have not been able to try all these amazing Liquid Lipsticks for a whole day but according to fellow beauty bloggers (Ya Na, Tiffany), the colour stays, does not smears and it does not crack your lips! Hurry up to the store as these amazing chapsticks are selling like air tebu during Ramadan! The stick sells at RM39 each.


Then I tried to do the make up on myself.
So, here's the aftermath.

How To Setup Your Home To Be More Productive

7:30 AM 13 Comments A+ a-

Working from home sounds like a good idea on paper. You can attend Skype meetings in pyjamas; you can have your cat nearby; and you can play any music you like.

But, working from home can also kill your productivity. It can be a challenge to be on top of your game when you have so many distractions around.

I do need ideas as to how to improve my productivity @ home.
So, here are these tips to create a good home office :

1. Find a good location

If you have a spare room, turn it into a dedicated office. But if you have a very limited space, find any corner with the least foot traffic.
Recommend , Home, Good Home Office, Location, Productivity, Rawlins GLAM, byrawlins,

2. Add proper furnishing

Invest on a good desk and chair that is meant for serious work. Don’t just settle with a plastic stool and meja lipat that you have spare in the storeroom. If there’s a window (which is great for natural lighting and ventilation), make sure there’s a curtain there to avoid glare during the day. You should also consider painting the wall around your workstation with colours that promote productivity and positivity like blue and green.
Recommend , Home, Good Home Office, Location, Productivity, Rawlins GLAM, byrawlins,

3. Keep it cool

Make sure your workstation or home office is well ventilated throughout the day. You can either install a split unit air conditioner or a ceiling fan to ensure you are comfortable while doing your work. Every once in a while, open the window to let some fresh air in. Now that’s something that you could never do when you are working at a regular office.

4. Reduce noise

If possible, try to eliminate as much noise as possible. This includes the sound of people walking in the corridor and the voices of your kids screaming. You can insulate the small gap under the door and around the window with rubber seals or strips. Alternatively, using a much thicker and heavier curtain would do the trick too.

5. Install lots and lots of plug points

A decent home office may need at least six plug points on the wall for the work lamp, phone charger, computer, speakers, printer and more.

Some might prefer to just use the extension cables and three-way adapters for the appliances that they seldom use. But it is just much safer if you have a professional electrician to install additional plug points on the wall.

6. Subscribe to a fast broadband service

There are a lot of business-class broadband plans available throughout the country such as UniFi, Maxis Broadband, Streamyx and YES. Usually, there is a minimum subscription contract of one year or two years. It is quite a long-term commitment, but worth every cent.
Recommend , Home, Good Home Office, Location, Productivity, Rawlins GLAM, byrawlins,

7. Avoid Ergonomic Mistakes

Do you always get muscle aches around your shoulder? That is the result of hunching down at the computer for too long and unergonomic sitting posture. You can either buy a desk that is suitable for your height or simply order custom built-in desk for your home office.

Also, remember to take a break in between your work and follow the 52/17 rule.
Recommend , Home, Good Home Office, Location, Productivity, Rawlins GLAM, byrawlins,

8. Have plenty of storage space

Make sure your workstation has a lot of open shelves to keep the books and files, locked drawers to keep the confidential documents. Every now and then, declutter your desk and stow away all the documents and books that you no longer need. This will keep your home organized, neat and tidy, just like how your mama wants it to be.
Recommend , Home, Good Home Office, Location, Productivity, Rawlins GLAM, byrawlins,
  

9. Ensure good lighting

Make sure your office is well lit with ambient lighting. You may also add a task light just above your desk to further illuminate the area. This is especially important if your workstation doesn’t have a large window or sliding door for the natural light to shine through.




Recommend , Home, Good Home Office, Location, Productivity, Rawlins GLAM, byrawlins,


10. Inject your personality

Finally, you should add a little bit of your character to the area. If you love to travel, hang a framed world map to reflect your personality or if you love action figures, order a custom glass cabinet to display your collection.

I think that’s all that you need to know about designing your very own home office. It can take up a whole room or simply a small area under the stairs. But most importantly, it should be a design that enhances work productivity.

SGshop "Jom Shopping!" Contest

3:36 PM 0 Comments A+ a-

SGshop, Mama Darwiish, Ayue Idris, SGshop Jom Shopping Contest, Rawlins GLAM, Contest, byrawlins,
Here comes another story about my current online-shopping addiction.
I read about Mama Darwiish's haul of a great and cheaper selfie LED ring light and I was stoked to have not found out about it earlier.

Intrigued, I went online and read her post about how easy it was to shop on SGshop.
And like they say, the rest is history.
Upon googling for more info, I came across Ayue Idris' contest which expires today!
So here I am trying my luck to win that RM500 shopping spree from SGshop.

In order to win the shopping spree, I have to answer two super duper easy questions.

Q1. What service does SGshop offers?
SGshop offers the best and highest quality of service for consumers purchasing from Chinese e-commerce websites and partnering with the best logistics and express companies in providing the best, fast, great value and safe shopping experience online. How is this possible? SGshop cooperate with banks to ensure that payment processes are as secure, efficient and prompt as possible.

Q2. List 3 items that you want to buy from SGshop
As Ayue Idris mentioned in her post, I was spoilt for choices as they are thousands of beautiful and value-for-money items available on SGshop. And now I have to limit myself to only 3 items. So here goes.


1) Bvlgari Pure White Crystal Amethyst (65 ml) @ RM167.81
You have got to be kidding me! On our shore, this amazingly perfume with a heavenly smell sells well over RM300. And as an entrepreneur and a blogger, I need to look and smell my best all the time.

2) Utility Rack @ RM266.44
With small apartment, one has to be very creative in arranging and placing the furniture thus this huge rack will assist me in making my crib less-hoarder-like.
SGshop, Mama Darwiish, Ayue Idris, SGshop Jom Shopping Contest, Rawlins GLAM, Contest, byrawlins, 3) Nanxiang Trunk Aluminum Frame Box Boy 20 (25 inches) @ RM184.25
For someone who travels quite often, a great luggage is the best accessory! And this one claims to be very durable. I want it in a light purple colour please.
SGshop, Mama Darwiish, Ayue Idris, SGshop Jom Shopping Contest, Rawlins GLAM, Contest, byrawlins,
Again, thanks to Ayue Idris and Mama Darwiish for introducing me to SGshop. Now I can shop more with less guilt of spending more moolah!

I Need Vitamin Sea

Urgently needed now - time, location and money to spend on this view! (Source)
It has been quite some time since I last soaked myself in the sun and absorbed some vitamin sea.
And I want to go with my friends - besties trip!!!!!
Trips are always greater and more fun with crazy friends!
I have had a few trips with them before and I have always enjoyed myself to the max, each and every time.

But, at times, monetary poses obstacles as I want to have the best of time with the most less money involved. Haha. Me being cheapskate me!

So, I started checking out the Traveloka website for amazing deals on accommodation.

After checking out some blogs and getting tips from reading them, I think booking Berjaya Tioman Resort would be the best place for my friends and me to stay.
Traveloka, Berjaya Tioman Resort, convenient hotel and flight booking online, Tioman, byrawlins, Rawlins GLAM,
Oh yes. The tranquility! (Source)
Why did I choose Tioman?
Here are some things to do while in Tioman that I have listed out aka my itinerary. Hopefully the besties will approve!
  • Great staff and service at Berjaya Tioman Resort – one of the most important factor that could affect one’s vacation! One bad service and I will feel that the whole vacation will go bad!
  • The rooms are well kept. So, I think Deluxe Triple Chalet at Berjaya Tioman Resort will be the perfect fit for our group. With basic amenities and a well-kept room, that is enough for me.

  • Beautiful beaches especially Paya Beach. Expect a lot of Instagram updates from me on the beach with my besties – on and off beach. We love to imagine that we are the Next Asia’s Top Model, like all the time, no matter where and when! Well, dreaming is free so dream all you want right?
  • Do my bits towards global conservation by visiting Juara Turtle Hatchery. Here I can learn more about conservation and then walk to one of the biggest waterfalls in Tioman which is Asah waterfall. Expect more pictures here too.
  • When you are near the sea, the trip would be useless if one doesn’t go diving, right? I read that there are many dive spots to choose from and there are also so many dive service providers that could assist us in diving. So, we will spoil for choices here. Of course I will be choosing the one that is value for money. Oh yes. Armed with my Go Pro, expect more beautiful pictures under the sea where we imagine we are the mer-people!
Traveloka, Berjaya Tioman Resort, convenient hotel and flight booking online, Tioman, byrawlins, Rawlins GLAM,
In case you are wondering, that's not me. (Source)

  • As if that is not enough, I read that there are a lot of activity counters at the hotel lobby, so friends, be prepared for the hectic schedule ahead! Hopefully we will be fit enough and have enough energy to do all.
  • And will your sea trip be complete without watching the sunset? Of course not! I read also that the sunset view is very beautiful there in Tioman!
  • Food! I read that Tioman has the best of Asia’s food served here too! I intend to get tanned and full by the end of my trip!
  • Last but not least (although I am a bit reluctant) is to try out fishing in Tioman. I am not a patient person and I know that fishing takes a lot out of someone. But, one has to try everything once right? So, might as well try it out. Haha.
Itineray- checked!
So, with all the things scheduled, should I go to a website to check on flights and open another one for accomodation? No silly you! I just open one single website for flights and hotel booking  – of course via Traveloka. So, the task of hotel and flight booking via Traveloka is easy and super-fast. The choices are endless and trust me that you will be spoilt for choices when browsing through Traveloka. Adn don't forget about the crazy promotions too! You will certainly get value for your money - my ultimate kind of promotion! With just 3 easy steps, I booked my crib and flight for the amazing besties trip ever at Berjaya Tioman Resort!

Oh yes. Another point worth mentioning about Traveloka – you can pay for your booking in whatever way you want – credit, debit, interbank and now even you can make payment at the nearest 7-eleven! Talk about being convenient and accommodating with Traveloka. How I wish all things are this easy in the world!

Wanna join me? Check out Traveloka!

Duit Raya
Befitting its meaning, Ole-Ole Raya RTM 2017 gives gifts to the underprivileged children from SK Shah Alam and SK Seksyen 19, Shah Alam.

Ole-Ole literally translates as present.

The program has been running on air since 2017 and this year, RTM collaborated with a few NGOs, the Ministry of Domestic Trade, Co-Operatives and  Consumerism (KPDNKK) to bring joy to some 40 students before Syawal comes. The program runs for 3 day (15, 16 & 19 June 2017) and will be aired before Raya (24 June @ 9 am @ TV1).

Mr Wan Mohd Harizmi considering Noraniza Idris as the spokesperson
I was invited to this year's celebration which was held at PICC's renowned restaurant, Pot & Pan where Noraniza Idris Production Ventures Sdn Bhd (NIPVSB) launched its raya album, called Album Ria Aidilfitri featuring the traditional pop song diva herself, Noraniza Idris with a few other artistes. [To name a few - Mimi Fly ONE, Fee Haiqal, Razis Ismail]

The launch party was co-sponsored by Co-X and HSB Wan Trading. HSB Wan Trading's CEO, Mr Wan Mohd Harizmi, announced that should the company is moving forward tremendously, HSB Wan Trading might elect Noraniza Idris as it's first spokesperson, as he was happy with the current collaboration with the artist.

Wonder Woman [Movie Review]

Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Patty Jenkins, DC Comics, Warner Bros., Movie Review, superhero, action movie, Rawlins GLAM,
The beautiful and powerful Diana
Hoorah!
Another superhero film that is a must watch!
Since her appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and the talk about her own movie, I think Wonder Woman is the most awaited superhero movie of the year (next to lots more in the pipeline).

The movie started with Diana in the present day Paris, reminiscing her past after receiving a World War 1 photo sent by Bruce Wayne.

Diana was raised in the island of Themyscira, home of the Amazons. Her mother, Queen Hippolyta told her that she was 'sculpted' out of her love and has no father. The Amazons is a race of warrior women created by the gods of Mount Olympus to protect mankind against the corruption of Ares. In his moves to overthrown Zeus, Ares was mortally wounded by Zues. Before dying, Zeus left a weapon for the Amazons capable of killing Ares, which Diana believed to be a ceremonial sword and called 'The Godkiller'.

The theme is dress in gold, but I can't overdress Mother, so I left my crown behind
Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Patty Jenkins, DC Comics, Warner Bros., Movie Review, superhero, action movie, Rawlins GLAM,
I wonder whether this sword can cut the meat clean - I need the meat now for rendang!
Growing up, Queen Hippolyta overprotected Diana and believed that the day of her being harm will never come. But Diana disobeyed her mother's command and had her aunt, General Antiope to train her in secret. When they were finally discovered by the Queen, Antiope managed to convince the Queen that she will train Diana more than the others.

Steve Trevor came into Diana's life when his plane crashed off the coast of the-perfectly-hidden-by-mist Themyscira. Diana saved Steve's life without knowing that his pursuers (the German army) was not far behind. Trying to protect Steve, all of Themyscira engaged with the Germans and Antiope was killed in the attack. After interrogation, Diana learned that the world is in war and lots of innocent people were being killed by the Germans. Believing that Ares is responsible for the war, Diana armed herself with 'The Godkiller' and left Themyscira with Steve to find and destroy Ares.

And why does Mother has to crave for a deer for breaking fast?
Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Patty Jenkins, DC Comics, Warner Bros., Movie Review, superhero, action movie, Rawlins GLAM,
Yeay! Almost breaking fast time. Sorry Mother, couldn't find the deer.

Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Patty Jenkins, DC Comics, Warner Bros., Movie Review, superhero, action movie, Rawlins GLAM,
Please girl. At least make sure your foundation is evenly put on before you come and see me!
From London where Steve gathered a team, Diana and the entourage went to Belgium with the assistance of Sir Patrick Morgan. After successfully fought through the German lines, freed a village and had their pictures taken, the team went to a nearby castle to intercept Ludendorff's plan to use a gas bomb.

Will Diana succeed in her plan to destroy Ares?
Is there really Ares to stop in the first place?
Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Patty Jenkins, DC Comics, Warner Bros., Movie Review, superhero, action movie, Rawlins GLAM,
Oh no! I am going to be late for Terawih and Mother is not going to be happy!

Plot: 4.9/ 5.0. I don't mind the time it took for the movie to build up the characters - it was marvelous. Now, people who don't know Diana will understand who and why she is the way she is. And I love the plot - it leaves you with questions and keeps you anticipating for the answers in the next sequel.

Cast: 5.0/ 5.0. The right Diana, the right Steve, the right Sameer, the right Charlie, the right Chief, the right Hippolyta, the right Sir Patrick. No complain at all!

Will I watch it again: I watched it in Atmos D Box and next I want to watch it in 3D!
