Zalando

15 Feb

As a self-proclaimed online shopping addict, I’m always more than happy to find out about new shopping sites other than the ones I have already bookmarked on my computer. It is almost therapeutic to go through clothes that you end up not buying but just to envision the “what if I were to buy this, how would I wear it” in your head.

No it’s not a syndrome, we all do it. Well at least I don’t think I’m the only one?

Just recently Zalando has made its way to the UK, offering a wide selection of brands from all over the world for their customers. I was told that Zalando has already made its mark in a number of countries such as Germany, Italy, Holland and France. As off now, they are only available in some countries in the Europe but hopefully in the future they will make their way to Asia maybe? I will eventually return to Malaysia for good so I would be thrilled to know if some online shops would ship to my side of the globe.

Based on experience, Zalando’s shipping service is impeccable. Within 2 days of order, I received their big white and orange box at my doorstep. They offer free shipping and return, which is always good news to those who wants to give it a try.

I received two things;

Burts Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus

I adore this lip balm, it has become a favourite in my make-up bag. It is very moisturising and the colour Hibiscus is such a nice rosy pink colour on the lips. It is highly pigmented for a lip balm but not pigmented enough to be a lipstick, which is ideal.

Vero Moda Celina Mini Dress

Two things that attract me to this; colour-blocking and Celine clutch inspired. This dress describes everything I currently love about the trend now, electric blue and the way the colour is paired it reminded me so much of this Celine clutch;

Some items I’m coveting over on the Zalando site;

Vero Moda Wonder Colour Jeans in Blue

I love anything electric blue and this jeans is such a transitional piece from winter to spring. The styling on their site for this is so spot-on, the jeans looks nice paired with a floral blouse and nude pumps.

Missoni Ballet Pumps

Who doesnt love a bit of Missoni print in their wardrobe. This Italian brand really knows how to sum up everything about summer in a footwear. This ballet pumps is so cute and fun!

Have a look on Zalando, you might be tempted to purchase a few items!

I will be bookmarking their website, that’s for sure!

Sunday Blurb

21 Aug

Since I wasn’t very “active” with my blog for the last month, thought I’d share a little beauty haul accumulated over the past 2 months or so..

I know I’ve been good…a little over a year ago that amount would have probably quadrupled!

The first obvious item would be the infamous NAKED palette that was gifted to me by a sweet friend, Yanti 🙂 She just gave it to me for free because she had two and she knows how much I wanted it! I’ve been using it every day, it is such a perfect kit for those who loves browns and neutrals!

The selection of colours will take you from day to night, from work to a date. It is so versatile and useful that I usually just throw this palette in my makeup bag when I’m traveling and bring no other eyeshadows.

Is it worth getting one? Ohhhh yesssssaaa-reee!

I would actually buy this again if I ever run out of it, no joke!

I wouldn’t go into details of each item as most of them would be in my August Favourite post, which would be up in this coming week! I would review the items in that post.

Stay tuned for that!

Have a lovely week!

 

Electric Face Brush

18 May

So about two days ago my dad brought this very familiar paperbag home from work;

…and inside is this heavenly gadget!

The Clarisonic Mia in lavender(with free samples!).

I’ve been wanting this gagdet for about 3 yrs now, and its finally here and its mine! My dad’s friend was over in the US so he helped me purchase this. As you know, Clarisonic has not blessed us with its presence here in Malaysia yet and in the UK it is so much more expensive.

The first thing I did was charge this for 24 hours. I had to contain my excitement for that amount of time so it was killing me. I think my family may have thought I was on the verge of madness.

Clarisonic Mia is the mini version and the cheapest out of the Clarisonic Classic and Plus. If you didn’t already know, this is a very raved about product that has won many beauty awards and recommended by many dermatologist. It doesn’t have any hidden marketing agenda as it is as simple as it works. It’s basically like a toothbrush for your face! So you use this with your daily cleanser, twice a day.

It cleans deep into your pores and makes them 2x cleaner than your average method. It was invented by the same people that invented the sonicare toothbrush system, therefore it uses the same concept; sonic movements of the brush with a frequency of 300 movements per second.It claims to unclog your pores and makes any skincare you use works better on your skin! You can read all about it here on their website or watch their advert;

I don’t usually splurge on expensive products for the sake of it, it isn’t a lifestyle. I tend to do a thorough research and a lot of ‘pros and cons’ lists before I decide to do so. I mean take this for example, it took me 3 years!

After watching hundreds of videos like this for the past years, wouldn’t you be tempted too? 🙂

Even Oprah raves about this product!

Apart from the Clarisonic, I also received 4 free Bobbi Brown samples courtesy of Bloomingdales. 2 packets of their hydrating eye cream and 2 small tubs of their new brightening gentle cleanser. I’ve yet to try they cleanser but so far I’ve been loving their eye cream! I will keep you posted on these two and see if I like it.

I’m so psyched about this product and be on the road to better skin! I will keep you updated on the result of using the Clarisonic, so WATCH THIS SPACE!

Have a great day 🙂
