One and a half month, 96 episodes, 3 episodes per day 武媚娘传奇 finally comes to the end last night. There are some thoughts I would love to share it here:

1 EMPRESS WU EQUALLY NOWADAYS MODERN WOMEN
Basically she is icon of modern women: feminine appearance yet tough inner spirit. Intelligence, creative and progressive. She just born in a wrong era.

2 BE WISE TO CHOOSE MR RIGHT
武媚娘侍奉李世民十二年,也不过是个五品才人;李治却把她捧为皇后. Empress Wu just a low grate concubine after serving Lee Shi Min for twelve years, eventually she is empress for Lee Zhi.

3 LIFE IS JUST VERY SIMPLE, ACTUALLY
起初我是为了保护你,后来是为了得到你,其实我就想好好的和你一起看一场烟花… Emperor Lee Zhi doesn’t fancy about his throne, he just want to have a great moment with his love one, life is very simple actually.

4 JUST DO IT
莫问前程凶吉,但愿落幕无悔 basically can be translate to DON’T ASK, JUST DO IT! When you doubt about any decision making, just do it. Left the judgement to outsider.

5 THE BEST EMPEROR OUTFIT
I am doubt about the wardrobe styling, but Empress Wu looks great in her emperor look, 3D dragon jacket incredible embroidery beading effects are amazing!

6 THE PRINCE LEE XIAN IS A MUTANT
Lee Zhi and Empress Wu both are good looking person, I wonder why they have a son like Lee Xian. Something wrong with Lee Xian genetic, he is a mutant.

7 SET A GOAL FOR LIFE
At the last episode, Empress Wu confuse about her choice, she even doubt why she choose to be a king. She is lonely and sad even owned the whole Tang dynasty. At last, she left a piece of wordless tablet 无字碑 at Shaanxi Province Mausoleum, she has nothing to say in her life? Or she let us comment for her achievement?

queenie_chamber_urbandecay_01Hereby I created a refreshing makeup look inspired by 武媚娘传奇. Everybody is crazy about Empress Wu makeup, I am using a list of products below to create this look. Original version is a bit heavy in reality, I change original red lips into this natural nude cream lipstick, dark smoky eye into shimmery eyeshadow. Main focus enhanced at the fire red tattoo on my forehead, this look ideal for coming cny makeover.

queenie_chamber_urbandecay_02URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer
Great coverage for my minor spot and darken area on my face, set up a perfect base prepared for next step.

queenie_chamber_urbandecay_03URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation
武媚娘 face is pretty pale, I use lighter tone than my original skin tone to create the pale look.

queenie_chamber_urbandecay_04URBAN DECAY Moondust Eyeshadow
I didn’t follow the original verysion dark smokey eyes, giving a touch of shimmery moondust eyeshadow for a refreshing look, perfect for coming cny.

queenie_chamber_urbandecay_05URBAN DECAY Sheer Revolution lipstick
This revolution  lipstick comes in beautiful shades,  very creamy and moisturize my lips as well.

FOR MY FIRE RED TATTOO ON FOREHEAD
I am using Sephora matte permanent lipstick 2060A.

 DEFINING EYELINER
I am using Stila stay all day waterproof liquid eye liner intense black.

A lot of girlfriends told me YOU WOULDN’T HAVE TIME FOR SELF-PAMPERING SESSION ANYMORE WHEN YOU HAVE A BABY. I thought it was some jokes because hubby always can help mar. Seriously I didn’t sit in any hair salon for more than two hours (some basic hair wash & hair cut just fine, sitting there more than 3 hours for coloring & perms are too luxury for new-mom-without-nanny). The same thing never happen in nail bar too. But still, I still manage to have some ME-TIME…in own bathroom. Luckily Lauren daddy willing to help most of the time, hence my highlight of the week always happen on weekend. The best moment I could have,  no matter a long hot shower, a detoxifying body scrub, a nourishing hair treatment, even simple mani pedi will wash my tiredness away. It wasn’t easy to be a full time mommy, or I should say it wasn’t easy to be a radiant full time mommy, as we need to put our baby in priority HEALTHY AND HAPPY, cook and maintain our house clean (Oh yeah I don’t have any maid neither), in the same time we still wish to look radiant  from head to toes.

06Thanks to Scholl, I received a starter set of SCHOLL VELVET SMOOTH EXPRESS PEDI with TWO REPLACEABLE ROLLER HEADS last week during media launch. You know what? I no longer need to filing my foot like playing violin with foot file anymore. Filing is pretty tiring job too. The result is even better professional foot spa session ( I bet most of them are still using traditional foot file). Want to know more, please enjoy video below:

03 04

Thank to the leading foot expert, Scholl for this simple yet handy electronic foot innovation, let me file those dead skin off in brushing-a-teeth time. Girls we all know Malaysia  is a 12-months-summer country, open toes sandals are essentials in these hot day. I ‘m confident to say my feet are ready for sandals, or wait, gimme three minute for instant pedi session. Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi comes with a fast rotating Micralumina roller head, able to removes my dry skin effortlessly (For best results, apply lotion after). It seriously convenience and comfort. But caution when cleaning the device:, you can only wash the roller head but not the electronic body. Normally I wiped the device with a damp towel.

Nowaday not only women, men enjoy pedicure too. Not for fancy gel nail but a clean and neat appearance. Of cos I will share my Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi with my hubby too. If you worry about hygiene issue, grab your family pack of roller heads refill pack with two pieces inside, problem solved. Nowadays consumers are smart, they do calculation before purchase. Let us do some calculation here: One refill pack cost you RM49.90, one roller head cost RM24.95. One roller can be used up to 12 times, which means each usage only cost you RM2.08. Now girls, please tell me how much you spent in nail bar everytime for basic pedicure session?

There are always some retro designs for the old school style, invented with new elements.

COMBINATION OF MATERIALS
I’m pretty surprise the combination of materials used in an eyewear, wood with metal, plastic with wood.. texture that give you a new kind of feeling.

Okay, after talking trend analysis, there are some my seasons favor picks.

queenie_chamber_safilo_eyewear_fashion_03The new Marc Jacobs sunshades convey classic glamour and an elegant flair, very refined style. The bold volumes and unexpected color combinations, are enhanced by an alluring blend of materials highlighting the new glasses’ 50s-inspired design and sophisticated allure.

LIMITED EDITION BAGUETTE SUNGLASSES

Irresistible and iconic, these sunglasses are inspired by the House’s celebrated Baguette bag, a symbol of timeless elegance and style. With their multifaceted dimensions, straight, clean-cut upper front profile and softly rounded lower front profile, the brand’s new numbered limited edition sunglasses celebrate the legendary bag’s refined allure. Look at the translucent camouflage print, and the twistable Fendi logo at the arm.

These oversize sunshades very vintage yet new, nothing because the brand’s iconic skull on the hinges, with an added flower detail in line with the SS14 catwalk collection. Own one of the if you are leopard print fans too, purely leopard, leopard with black or leopard with metal up for your choice.

This season, Bottega Veneta enriches its sophisticated eyewear collection with new sunglasses and optical frames that highlight the brand’s unique aesthetic and enduring motifs and feature subtle signatures including the intrecciato motif, photoengraved studs, as well as the block hinge, reinterpreted in new versions.

An interplay of colored acetate, skillfully combined to create a refined contrast, characterize these women’s sunglasses and optical frame.
