Hello to whoever reading.
Again i've abandoned my blog. Dont know why i completely forgot that i have a blog.
Ok i'm vowing to start blogging. at least every month. We'll see about that.
Can u believe its already August?!
The recent ramadhan & syawal month went by so quickly. As usual, the first few days of syawal was spent in Melaka with my husbands family. This year was a little different.
We (including my inlaws) all 19 of us planned a raya family trip overseas on the 6th day of raya.
It was our first overseas trip together. In the beginning, the plan was for my husband and i to take my mil to Jogjakarta, but when Airasia had their sale, I saw that Bandung was less than rm250. So i mooted the idea to invite my sister inlaws and their families.
It was going to be my 4th visit to Bandung but I didnt care because I had such good memories of Bandung and i loved the weather.
I was nervous as i was in charge of booking the flights, looking for a tour company and accommodation. Syukur that everything turned out well.
We went to see the volcano, the new floating market and of course did lots of shopping.
My sister in laws really enjoyed shopping for materials in Pasar Baru , that they went there twice, 2 days in a row. We stayed at Anggrek Shopping hotel which is in Jalan Riau. Famous for its factory outlets that are a 5 minutes walk away from the hotel. Our hotel was also connected to a shopping mall and made things easy when we had to get things from the supermarket, pharmacy and also food from the foodcourt. This hotel for sure suits our requirements and caters to our needs. I also recommend our tour company Jack Tours to whoever planning to visit Bandung
I got myself blouses that are leass than rm40 which looks like they're from H&M, Dorothy Perkins etc. Happy!! Not all outlets have clothings that are to my liking. You've got to go outlet hopping/shopping to find whatever that tickles your fancy.
On the last full day there, I got my pisang bollen and brownies fix from Kartika Sari. Yumm. I've missed those so much..
We have already planned on going for another trip next year. Its nice to get to spend qualtiy time with my sister inlaws/ bro in laws and my nieces and nephews.
Hopefully we make this a yearly affair.

Been too long!
I'm back to talk about my current favourite makeup product.
Since the beginning of my enthusiasm for make up, i have always liked adding bronzer or contour to give my round face dimension after applying foundation or a bb cream with contouring and bronzing.
From what i've learned, contouring can avoid the face from looking flat after the application of foundation.
My first contour/bronzer product that i bought is the Sleek Face Form in medium if not mistaken. It comes with the contour powder, highlighter and the bronzer. I only contour when i'm going out for a special event or at night as it does tend to look too strong if worn during the day. Instead I bronze everytime i use make up. i would rather use a bronzer than a blush.
I love contouring and bronzing as i can sculpt my face to highlight and contour the areas i want to bring attention to or hide.
Just recently my interest towards cream contour and bronzer grew. Almost all the youtube gurus have a video on how to contour n highlight to achieve the Kim K look. so of course i had to buy a cream sculpting kit and my mom managed to get me the Chanel Tan De Soleil Bronzer Universal while she was on a cruise on a recent Scandinavian trip. Been looking for this product for awhile and concluded that it's not available in Asia because its not available in KLCC and I also asked at the airport in Bangkok & Narita, both do not have this item in their collection.
So now i'm trying to find the best brush or sponge to use with a cream contour or bronzer product to give me the best result . Working with creams are on a whole different level. you've got to make sure you blend it into the face properly and all. But using creams definitely gives you a more natural and dewy look compared to using a powder.

Have you tried cleansing oils?
I myself have never until i bought the DHC cleansing oil while i was in Japan.
Before the trip, i googled : beauty items to get from Japan and this cleansing oil was one of the list of item to get.
I must say that i was skeptical initially, since i have oily skin. But i am SUPER happy i tried it. It removes make up easily. I just need 2 small pumps to completely remove all the make up including mascara. The oil melts the make up away. During my first try, i thought i would still need to cleanse my face with my everyday cleanser after using the oil. but i didnt need to. after rinsing my face, there wasnt the slightest bit of oil residue . and i felt squeaky clean.
I personally would use this oil for days when i have a full on face of make up. I now have a new perspective on cleansing oils. I also heard the shu eumura's one is good too..
