[Beauty] December MIVVA Box Review - Special Edition X'mas Box


I didn't regret for getting myself another MIVVA box because their Christmas Edition Box is just so good! Supposedly I wanna gift it to my sister but forgotten to change the receiver name to my sister's so end up it's my own gift to myself. :\ But I'd got her another Christmas present, so this will be my own Christmas gift for myself this year!

Btw, I introduced what is MIVVA and did my first review on their box here.

So I bet you can't wait to see what's in the box now!

[Beauty] bloop Nail Polish Review

So after reading a lot of advertisement from me about bloop, finally I get to write review on my first product from them - the bloop nail polish! I actually went to bought a few bottles of new nail polish from them in Parkson few weeks ago because the colour is just so *puking rainbow*!!

If you are currently looking for some new awesome nail polish too, keep reading till the end because there's an awesome promotion on their nail polish and nail stripes exclusively for my readers!!


So what I received for review here is in this pretty blue colour (Code: H126)

2013 Favourite [Part 1]


Merry Christmas guys!! So how was your Christmas Eve last night?? Mine was super fun and will be blogging about it soon so stay tuned!

Back to my topic. I decided to publish my 2013 favourite post today is because 1 more week to the year of 2014!! At least I get to share some meaningful stuff (you might think it is meaningful or not) on this meaningful day <3

So I don't really do monthly favourite post because... I don't really know how to choose my favourite products within a month, and I don't really import myself any new products for every month, so I'll just combine everything as a Year 2013 Favourite!

I'm gonna divide my post into 2 parts because some of my favourite stuffs are in my KL home. I'm now currently having sem break and I will be in my hometown Penang for a month, so I'll do my part 2 when I get back to KL next month (which is also the year 2014 already)!

So I will be showing make up and skin care products in this post because at least I have the pictures of some of the products in KL, but other stuffs like favourite bags, clothing and accessories, most of them are in KL, so that will be in part 2! Stay tuned! ;)


Let's get started!

#1. Holika Holika auto eyebrow pencil

I actually won this eyebrow pencil from Wengie's Natural Make Up set giveaway! All thanks to her for giving me a chance to try on a different eyebrow pencil!

I love the straight shape of the pencil there which makes me easier to draw my eyebrows, and the other side's brush to blend away the harsh part!

After having this pencil, I almost draw my eyebrows everyday, unlike usual! Because it's super easy to draw my brows now after having it! And luckily I picked the lightest colour and it doesn't look weird on me! Next time my eyebrow pencil is gonna be something like this too~


#2. Nanowhite Infinity Color Correction (CC) Cream SPF50/PA+++

I got this from Bag Of Love's halloween bag edition, and I actually saw a lot of people did another post on the review of this CC cream too! Can see that it is loved by a lot of people out there!

Why is it so nice? It doesn't make my face feel oily or sticky like other BB and CC cream do! Besides, the coverage is just so perfect, it's totally like a foundation, but it's still lighter than a foundation! Whenever I'm lazy to add on powder on top or my oily BB or CC cream, this is definitely my choice!


#3. SKINFOOD Red Orange Sun Pact Powder SPF50+/PA+++ No.1 Clear

This is also won from Wengie's giveaway, it's in the same set of the eyebrow pencil! This product also appeared in one of her favourite post vlog, and what she said is true! I can't live without powder if I'm applying BB or CC cream that made my face looks oily.

This powder is very light and has an SPF50 to prevent from harmful sunlight. I have a few types of powder with me, but I still prefer this a lot! And not forget that it smells quite good! I'm not sure of the price in MYR actually, but according to her, it's quite pricey, but is worth to get yourself one if you're looking for a new powder! ;)


#4. Kiss Me Heroine Make Mascara Remover

I'm really a lazy person when it comes to removing my make up, especially when removing my waterproof mascara! It always make my face has some black shadow and my eyes looks totally a panda.

Thank god I found this awesome product and I'm using it for half year already! If I'm a person who need to apply mascara for everyday, I'm not sure how many bottles of this have been used by me! I'm more hardworking on applying mascara now ;D

According to some of the review, they said that this remover only can remove some particular mascara only as it is made for their own brand's mascara, but luckily a few mascara that I'm using are able to be removed by it!


#5. Bioré Cleansing Oil Cotton Facial Sheets

I bet everyone of you are using this as your daily make up remover now! If you're not, go and get one now! It's currently the best make up remover which can totally remove make up! You won't wanna leave the residue in your face to grow pimples right?

I actually borrowed it for a few of my friends during performances, some still borrowed 2 pieces at first because they think that it's like other brands which need 2 or more pieces to remove the make up, and 100% of them actually asked me what brand is it because it removed the make up really fast! Besides, the smell is nice too!





#6. Acne clear Pimple Treatment Cream (Left in the pic above)

This product actually still can't be found in Malaysia, but I asked my auntie who is currently living in Singapore to get me 1 because it only cost SGD5. After getting 1 for myself, my auntie also tried and then she went to buy few more for my uncle and brother too! Even my sister sometimes borrow it from me because it really dries out the huge pimple or acne fast!

If you're interested to get 1, I can help you to ask my auntie to get you one! Just PM me for more information ;)


#7. Thursday Plantation Blemish Gel (Right in the pic above)

You can read the review here because I did mentioned that how much I love it in that review post! ;)


#8. L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil

I left the product in KL, so I used google image. Yes, I really recommend this hair serum, firstly because it's from L'Oréal! Haha. As you can tell, it's an extraordinary oil, it's the same fact as the extraordinary olive oil which is of course better than normal cooking oil. This oil absorbed really fast into our hair! It makes my hair not that frizzy on that day too.


#9. Vaseline Healthy White SPF24 Triple Whitening Lotion

I have been using this lotion for the whole year! I can't live without lotion! I have to apply once after bathing before I wear my clothes! This lotion can protect me from harmful UV rays and whitens my skin at the same time! It's now part of my life #wtf

******

So have you spotted similar favourite products? Leave me a comment in the comment section below and let me know what are your favourite products this year and any recommendations for me to try on! :)

And that's all for my Christmas post! Once again, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! Don't forget to put on a smile and be happy throughout the last week of 2013! Enjoy and have fun!! :D

[Beauty] December Bag | Bag Of Love Review


Before I start revealing what's in the bag, just wanna say that this is not sponsored nor I purchased by myself, but I won it from HERcorner! Once again, thank you so much, HERcorner! Visit them for more fashion outfits because CNY is coming!! ;)

Okay back to the bag. So it's my second time receiving Bag Of Love's bag. I did explain what is Bag Of Love in my previous review post. Click here to read on my first bag (the Halloween bag) from them by The Butterfly Project!

If you have already followed them, you know that they actually have revealed what's in the bag for December Edition already. This is because it might be a Christmas Gift to someone, so it's better if they revealed it first so that people know whether the products suits the receivers or not.

But lemme give you a hint, I love everything in this bag!! All of them are actually so new to me, and the uses are quite new for me too! So keep reading and there might be something you will be interested in! ;)

And look at that red elegant bag they provide!!! I'm impressed on how creative every bag design is given every month! It's a perfect 'clutch' if you are attending a classy Christmas event!

Now let's see what's in the bag! ;)

[Fashion] Little Black Box | Wonderbox Review

When I first received news that Wonderbox is selling a new series of boxes which is giving fashion stuffs like how beauty box works (we won't know what we will receive in the box), I feel so excited and went to purchase their Little Black Box immediately.

So finally the box has arrived after a month! Ya it took quite long for them to send out. Maybe they wanted to achieve a number of buyers first, but seems like not much people know about this.


In case you don't know, let me introduce it to you, the Little Black Box. This batch, it comes in three types which is Girly Girl, Hipster and Classic Chic.


And FYI, it's not purchase through subscribing the beauty box! You have to go to their Wondershop and purchase them separately.

So here goes my review! I got this which is Hipster.


I chose this is because I really love Kpop style, and as you can see, that girl is Hyuna from 4minutes. Although I know they won't provide anything from the picture, but I do hope that they will provide something nearly like this!

Achieve your Blogging or Blogshop dream with Serverfreak! | Butterfly Project Tea Party

So this post took me to be done for a whole week! I thought sem break have more time to write my blog?? Not as you think, I have tones of stuffs to do before and after back in Penang! Dating, accompany cousins and play with dogs (wtf XD)

Okay back to topic. Last-last Saturday I was invited to attend Butterfly Project's Tea Party on their first year birthday party!

Before I move into the event, I'm going to introduce an awesome website which can make your blogging or blogshop dreams come true! On that day, we, the butterflies get to listen to a talk from serverfreak.com regarding creating your own website or blog.


ABOUT SERVERFREAK.COM



So what is serverfreak and what do they do?
Serverfreak.com is specializes in providing web hosting solutions for almost all range of purposes - personal blogs, email solutions, corporate websites, databases and the list goes on.

These are the services they provide:
  • Domain Registration
  • Shared Hosting
  • E-mail Hosting
  • Reseller Hosting
  • Blog Hosting
  • Semi-Dedicated Hosting
  • Dedicated Server
  • Virtual Private Servers (VPS)
  • Server Co-Location
  • Virtual Private Network (VPN)
  • Web Design & E-commerce Solutions
  • Server Management Service

So the speaker Miss Shireen mainly focus the talk on Wordpress Hosting because most of us are blogger and might interested in changing our blog platform to Wordpress, and have our own domain name!

To be honest, Wordpress has a lot of function that is better than Blogger. I actually have my own Wordpress blog too because I wanna try to use it for some time first, and see that whether I want to move to Wordpress or not. But I'm quite used to blogger so I'm still waiting for the moment when blogger piss me off. (just kidding)

So if you're new to blogging or blogshop, please continue reading! I really recommend you to start with Wordpress first before it's too late! ;D


TO START YOUR OWN BLOG BY YOURSELF

Well, as a beginner, what you need to start your own blog is:
  1. web hosting (to access your website via the World Wide Web)
  2. domain name (.com/.net/.biz/.com.my/.my)
  3. Wordpress platform (for you to blog)

If you're doing everything all by yourself, these are the steps involve in setting up Wordpress blog:
  1. Register domain name & update nameservers
  2. Create MSYOL database & username
  3. Installing Wordpress
  4. Search for suitable templates, configure, setup
  5. Install plugins & widgets
  6. Finally, start blogging!

Especially for blogshop who wants to start their blogshop through blogs, the database must be created accurately to receive correct data from your customer! But for me, I will definitely mess up everything before receiving the data! Creating a real database is not as easy as you think! Trust me, I've learnt it before. If you only have a basic knowledge on creating database like me, it will takes you forever to finish your work, and you're stuck at step 2! You have 4 more steps to go (x.x)

MOST OF THE TIME THE BLOGGING PLANS GET DELAYED... BECAUSE SETTING UP TAKES UP TOO MUCH EFFORT!
"What??!! What on earth is HTML and Javascript?! Soo many question marks on my head now! It's confusing!!"

"I can't stand it anymore!!! Somebody help me!!"

But fear not now! Here comes your solution! Serverfreak has launched a new package specially for you - the Wordpress Easy Setup Solution! With Serverfreak, all you need to do is just focus on writing your blog! It's as easy as drinking water ;D



TO START YOUR OWN BLOG WITH SERVERFREAK

So what does this Wordpress Easy Setup package includes?
  • 12GB disk space
  • 50GB of monthly bandwidth
  • Unlimited Email Accounts (yourname@yourblogname.com)
I'm not done yet! The package also comes with
  • FREE domain name for your wordpress blog! (only .com/.net/.org/.info/.biz)
  • FREE one template fully setup with basic widgets
  • 24/7 Technical assistance, just email their technical team.

Goshhh 天下怎么可能有这种好事!The whole package costs only RM298 for the first year and RM198 for the renewal fees per year, and you can concentrate on blogging awesomely everyday you like!!


Isn't it awesome?! Everything is done by them! The best is they provide free domain too! Like "www.yourname.com"! How awesome it is?! You can just sit there and watch your hundreds of episodes of Running Man while waiting for them! Nawwh I'm just kidding, because you're not really done yet!

They have done everything which related to programming for you, so all you have to do is to enhance your blog design! You still have to design and upload your very nice header which will attract visitors, and some sidebar widget functions! (As you can see in every blog)


BLOG & HEADER DESIGN

So here are some tips for you. If you want to have a lot of visitors and keep them reading your blog, your blog design should be simple, reader friendly and unique which represent your own identity! Besides, its important to design your own logo or header that represents you (your blog)! Think of an overall blog colour scheme, it will make the whole page look more tidy too. Mine is definitely in the range of Pink colour xD

Well, if you purchase their package, you get to use their templates (as mentioned above) which fulfilled the above requirement! Their templates are versatile! You can click here to view their own demo website on how the simple and clean template looks like.

All you have to do changing from their blog design into your own design is:
  • Change the blog header. You can design your own header and change it by yourself (Scroll down for tutorial on how to upload your blog header in Wordpress)
  • Change the background colour or change into images. If you don't want a plain background colour but some nice background image you have, you can just email them the background image you want to use as your blog template background, and they will help you to change it!
  • Change the navigation menu colour (Home, About, Contact...). They can help you to change the navigation menu colour for FREE!

These are some of the header images will definitely make your blog looks attractive and gain more visitors (from Google - Nice blog header)

And here are some tips of designing your blog header. A header in a blog is really important for your readers or visitors to know that where they are and what they will be going to read about! Besides, a nice header will make one to visit your blog again if it is attractive enough! It is important to design your own header to represent your blog identity! 

Trust me, a blog header and background can change the overall look of the blog template! Try to do some blog hopping with different kinds of blogs, some of them have really nice designed header, some just simple nice photo of them, and some don't even have header but only their blog title.

Compare them, which one do you like it more? I definitely love those nicely designed header!

Now let me show you my blog, with header and only with blog title:

Do you think it is nice?? Nawwhh I don't like it!! 

Maybe my design is a little bit too simple, but at least my blog template is not plain anymore! People will know that they are reading a blog whose owner looks like this and named Nicole Yie, and she is vain! XD

Hmmm still don't really get it? Maybe you'll need to check our these Wordpress Bloggers which are hosted with serverfreak:

These webpages are simple and easy to read too! It's not difficult to manage your own blog after having Serverfreak! Not forgot to re-mention that, they don't only provide this Wordpress blog service! These are some other services they provide too:

Just a simple update on a few photoshoots taken by my exclusive photographer last Saturday after attending Butterfly Project's Tea Party.
