I got this super cute fabric from Spotlight media launch day earlier. After made a dress for bff, there are some leftover, such a waste of throwing away. Hence I decided to made versatile CAT BROOCH, 100% perfect match of that cat dress, on shirt collar,or even a bag. CAT BROOCH look pretty much alike with couture accessory. Now you can have a piece of designer statement jewel, make it by your own self without burning a hole of your wallet. For further detail, please watch the tutorial video below.

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:

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?

Well, now I have a piece a stone necklace that I owned long time ago. YES, I FEEL BORED WITH IT NOW!
Primary colors are so in, so I decided to turn it into a bloody red statement neckpiece~

Clean your old necklace, make sure no dirt on it. Dust-free surface will get you a smoother surface.
Place it on a board/ newspaper/anywhere suitable to spray.

Tada, here you are!
