I am sure there are many of you who read this blog who like me really like the clothes at BCBG, but their stuff is not always cheap.
But I have found this US company that you can buy BCBG clothes and some other stuff at really good prices.
Even with the cost of postage / shipping here to Malaysia, it can be much cheaper than buying in the shops here.
A little tip though, don't spend more than the US dollar equivalent of RM 500 at a time, other wise your package will be held up at customs and you will be taxed. For people in KL and Selangor area, that means driving all the way out to the LCCT at Sepang to get it. :)
If you see me wearing BCBG, I most probably bought it from this site.
Joberg likes to blend into her surroundings so we don't notice her. she is clever and tries to camouflage herself by sitting near wood, in baskets.... anything brown. Here she is watching me from behind a basket in the kitchen.
And the picture below is of Lord and Loco. Lord is the one with the black circle on his back. It was so weird seeing both of them lying like this in exactly the same position, facing the same way.. it's like a mirror image or reflection.
To the winners of the Guerlain giveaway, look at all the cool stuff you are getting!
Now I am jealous too!
The mascara texture is just beautiful and the lipstick is something I have never seen before. It is in really elegant casing and when you open it, the cover part flips open to display two small mirrors for you to apply your lipstick!
And blue is the new 'in' colour for mascara. I am waiting for a chance to try it too!
Your great items are on the way and you should receive them by the end of next week.
Ladies, take a few moments to read about these great products!
Extravagant volume, sublime curl and shine: THE NEW LE 2 DE GUERLAIN VOLUME is increasing its wealth of talents to fulfil even our most demanding dreams of perfection. An extra volume version, the perfect all-in-one that fills out the lashes and defines their curves with unprecedented depth: the lashes are confidently curled and coated in a luminous vinyl finish. Two brushes, two techniques, two formulas; two make-up steps for oversized lacquered volume.
Step 1: insolent volume A new rich and voluptuous mascara formula for generous volume and dizzying curves: make-up worthy of a true artist. The signature of the LE 2 DE GUERLAIN mascaras: a supple, fluid texture in which most of the waxes have been replaced by glossier, less opaque polymers for optimal intensity. And to offer even more outrageous volume and extreme curves, Guerlain has incorporated an innovative combination of two polymers chosen for their complementarity into this new version. The first, in the form of a dense, glossy oil, gives the formula body and loads the lashes to the max for instant volume. The second is a solid that forms a supple and elastic long-lasting film to beautifully curve and coat the lashes.
The result: a texture that can be endlessly layered to create adjustable volume and phenomenal curves without any stiffness or heaviness. Even easier to apply, it glides on extremely smoothly. To optimise the formula’s effects, a new brush that fills out, separates and curls every lash at a stroke: - its hollow fibres create a reservoir effect for optimal pick-up, - and their criss-cross arrangement catches all of the lashes for an impeccably groomed result. The formula stretches from the root to the tip without clumping, giving a curved and perfectly defined fringe of lashes.
Step 2: enhanced by an alluring vinyl effect An original lacquer formula specially developed to give intense colour. Like a top coat for nails, this smooth and glossy texture is applied over the entire surface of the lashes after mascara. It provides them with a spectacularly intense coat, offering additional shine and a long-lasting finish. Two technological innovations from Guerlain at the hear t of this formula that over turn the codes of mascara: - no wax: it thus has a glossy, crystalline texture that gives full expression to the colour of the pigments, which are evenly dispersed and enhanced, unlike traditional mascara textures. - a very high concentration of vinyl effect polymer gels: more than 25% compared to 12% in a conventional mascara formula. On drying, these gels form a film that traps the pigments on the lash, setting the colour and curl. A surprising little foam applicator, ingeniously ideal for applying this unique texture from Guerlain, requires a new application technique that is revolutionising eye make-up. Like a miniature paint roller, its soft, round tip coats all of the lashes down to the smallest, for maximum curve and intense colour. A simple, stunning, quick and easy step for an instantly fascinating, striking and powerful gaze.
Application tips from Olivier Échaudemaison, Creative Director “Your life-long dream of thicker, cur ved lashes with a flick of the wrist is now child’s play. This mascara’s texture is so fluid and easy to apply that it can be added as you wish in endless layers. To achieve even more intense colour and volume taken to its height, apply the lacquer at the base of the lashes and stretch the mascara outwards. This subtle touch of sophistication instantly creates a glamorous killer gaze. The lashes take on incredible density and thickness. This lacquer adapts to your ever y desire: used for touch-ups at any time of day, to add a glamorous touch in the evening, or as an eye-liner, it creates a strikingly powerful gaze. It is ready for anything"

Last week I attended the Licence to Style @ One Utama launch. I wore a dress which I fell in love with the moment I saw it. It's from Eclipse, designed by our very own Malaysian Sonny Son's latest collection.
As I walked into the area, suddenly I received a message on my phone.
'Hello lady in white' read the message.
I knew who it was so I started looking at the area where the photographers were seated. Sure enough, I saw Jay.
Jay did the photography for the Johor and Negeri Sembilan locations of my book.
He signaled to me through the crowd to stop moving so he could take a picture.
The were lots of styles seen on the runway but the ones I remember
