MuLondon Review & Giveaway ! - CLOSED -

Continuing my attempts to live healthier as well as doing some eco-friendly living, I started to search for daily products that's made of natural or organic products, especially if they contain no chemicals. We have used chemicals on our body (some of them are contained in soaps, lotions, etc) for many years without even realizing the harms. So when I found out about MuLondon, I feel the need to share it with you guys..

MuLondon is a company based in London,UK which specializes in producing natural and organic stuff for your skin and body with their fabulous moisturizers. Their moisturizers are made by hand from pure, natural and, where possible, certified organic ingredients. They also contain no artificial preservatives, emulsifiers or fragrances which I think is the best part. Instead, pure natural essential oils and herbal extracts are used to divinely scent and gently preserve. MuLondon also has a Cruelty Free* & Vegan certification from PETA.org ! Enough said, this is the moisturizer you want!
* Cruelty-free: never tested on animals, always free from animal ingredients

I have the opportunity to try one of their moisturizers. I choose to try the Organic White Chocolate Truffle Face Moisturizer. I think the name "White Chocolate" is what first sold me :) It contains Shea Butter, Coconut Butter, Jojoba Oil, Rosemary Extract, Vanilla Extract, and Cocoa Extract. - ALL GOOD!- :D

So when it arrives in it's beautiful purple wrap I can't stop myself not to open the lid and try it on the spot. Boris, the founder and owner of MuLondon also sent me a nice note and it says there that the moisturizer is not only ideal for face but also for all-over body use, so I tried it on my legs, feet and arms. The texture is more like a balm so it melts easily and therefore sinks easily on skin. I also love the scent which is a sweet smell of white cocoa and bourbon vanilla, but don't get me wrong, it's not a strong scent at all, instead it's a slight and subtle scent that you'll love.

How to use it? A little goes a long way. That means we only need a tiny amount of it every time we use it. At first I didn't know how much is "a tiny amount" so I use a little more than "tiny amount", but just like what Boris said in the note "if your skin feels greasy after application then you have used too much!".
So I've learned my lesson and now I have found the perfect amount to dab on my skin. This means the 60ml jar would last a long time. Talk about saving money! And not to mention that this is good stuff too! My face is moist all day and because I also love to use it on my legs, feet, arms and hands I now got a smooth and moist skin, almost like a baby :p

I think you must try MuLondon moisturizer. They ship fast (even for international orders like mine) and the product is superb. Their moisturizers are all SUPER-CONCENTRATED, that means they contain no added water so instead of getting only about 20% active ingredients (which is what most commercially produced moisturizers provide), MuLondon moisturizers are 100% active ingredients!

I'm carrying my White Chocolate Truffle Moisturizer everywhere now as it softens my skin whenever I need it. I'm also happy because it's vegan, cruelty free and made from natural / organic ingredients that is surely a good thing for my skin.

Crazy Dog Tshirts Review & Giveaway ! - CLOSED -

Last week I've reviewed a cool and funny Tee from Nacho Mama Tees at my other blog, Tigerlily's Book (and a Giveaway too!). Well, actually my husband is the one who reviewed the T-shirt, it has been his favorite ever since. And now, it's my turn to review a cool and funny t-shirt! This time, the sister shop of Nacho mama Tees called Crazy Dog T-shirts has sent me a Tee to be reviewed. There are many design options at their fun website which will turn heads, they have the best funny t-shirts around.

I love to wear these kind of tees, i don't like plain tees. Crazy Dog T-shirts have something for everyone. They have funny tees, vintage-style tees, graphic tees and even fun costumes. They have Men, Women and Kids Tees and they even have a $9 Tees section! You can't beat a fun tee with a cheap price like that! Oh, I just found out that they also have a Dog Costumes section! So cute!

I receive this "Yes, I wore this t-shirt yesterday" from Crazy Dog Tshirt to review. I fell in love almost immediately with the design because I think it's quite funny and fun!

I love the soft fabric and the quality of the graphic. The color of the graphic is beautiful too and it didn't fade after repeated laundry cycle. The white color of the tee has also maintained it's prime quality, my other white tees usually got a bit darker or "not as white as the first time I bought it" just after one laundry cycle but this one remains as white as the first time I received it. Now that is one fact that says how great the quality of this t-shirt is.
Every time I wore it people would turn their head and got curious about it, they smile and made some compliments. Yes, this is the kind of t-shirts that I love to wear! ;p

I picked this one because I thought it had the ability to make people smile or say "Cool" when they see me wearing it ^o^ I also picked this one because as you know (if you're a regular here) that lately I'm into recycling and saving the earth mood, so I guess this Tee would fit both my intentions (being cool and has something to do with recycle) ^__^

Overall, this tee is really comfortable to wear, it's soft and it falls nicely on the body, the graphic and color quality is great and the design is anything but ordinary. My only suggestion is I wish they had this tee in a fitted women style. But don't worry, some of their women tees have a fashion fit style. And I must also add that the customer service is excellent! I have been in contact with Bill from Crazy Dog Tshirts and he is so nice and he attends to my needs even if I'm just a reviewer and not an actual customer, so you can imagine if you're buying something from them they would definitely give you the best service!

If you want to buy a gift for the guys in your life you could buy him gifts from Crazy Dog as they have large selections of designs that men would absolutely love. They have television shows and 80s t-shirts among others, and some Chuck Norris tees too (which I don't know why but the guys really dig the Norris tees!). My hubby is basically making a list of his favorite tees when browsing the website. Just get your hubby to Crazy Dog website and you'll see.. ;p

Here's what's on my wish list:

To satisfy my dream of becoming superstar ;p
"As seen in the tabloids"



They also have pyjamas, as cute as this one!
"Mean Girls Finish First Pajama Set"


If you have a teenage daughter / cousin / niece,
I bet she would love this:



And here are some of my hubby's list:



He love the Hasselhoff Tee, it's the #1 in his list. And this new Ghostbusters style tee is just Awesome! Even myself think it's super cool ;p



SWEET DEALS:
Buy now and get a 10% OFF any order at Crazy Dog Tshirts with code "CDTEN".
This offer is valid until end of 2010!


And now to the GIVEAWAY!
One of you lucky T.T.T's readers will win a Free T-shirt of your choice from Crazy Dog T-shirts! They have many designs to choose from, I bet it's gonna be hard for you to choose ^o^

Bag of News

Bag of News is a couple of news that I gathered this week :




Ever since I received an email from Mary Gillogly telling me about her online boutique called Bevello, I was intrigued by the name to check it out. And luckily I did! Because I found such amazing and stylish collections with many lovely designs to choose from. Seriously, I can't stop browsing their store. Here's what makes them different:

  • We've ditched the usual, boring stock photos in favor of something a little more refreshing and true to life. Our photos let you see what our merchandise looks like in normal activities and places, not just supermodel poses in exotic locales.
  • We’ve selected models of different heights, sizes and shapes to give you a realistic representation off of which to choose your size and style. Not only is this a refreshing break from the cloned figures on other sites, it provides the base for our next feature…
  • We provide you with all of the model information for each item: the model’s measurements, the size she is wearing in the photo, and her usual size at department stores. Now you can compare your measurements to make sure you get the right size for you!

I thought that's a great concept. And we need more stores like that. Instead of perfected models parading the products I personally prefer real-life models with some imperfections (you know, a bit love-handles, short legs, long torso, wide hips, etc) just like us so we know exactly what the clothes would look like in typical ordinary women, because... yeah,what looks good on models doesn't mean it would look good on us too ;p

Anyway, I'm here to tell you that Mary is offering T.T.T's readers a 10% off every $100.00 purchase with code "TwoThousand"

This offer expires 12/20/09 so you got a month to splurge with discounts on Bevello!


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Now for you who doesn't know, I'm currently having a Giveaway at my other blog: TIGERLILY'S BOOK so for you who hasn't enter it yet then go visit my blog for your chance to win a Free T-shirt from Nacho Mama Tees ! And we also have Envirosax and Relish giveaways coming on next!

----------------------------------------------------------------

Now this one doesn't have anything to do with fashion , beauty or even cute stuffs but I just want to tell you all that right now,..... I'm hungry! ;p Yes, I'm hungry and I have to eat. So I'll have to leave you now to see you again on Saturday where I will announce the winner of my Perricone MD Giveaway (have you entered? It's open til tomorrow, go on scroll down if you haven't already). Anyway, I'm still deciding on what to eat. Hmm...that makes me remember a couple of days ago when me and hubby went to have dinner at this italian restaurant at the Grand Indonesia mall, it's called La Porchetta.

it has been our favourite restaurant since 2 years ago. I love the pasta there, and the decor is gorgeous too!


Oops, sorry for this OOT ^o^ Okay, I'm out for dinner now! See you guys soon. (*OOT : Out of Topic)

My First Wardrobe Capsule Challenge

A couple of weeks ago I stopped by Kasmira's blog, What I Wore Today, and found out about this Wardrobe Capsule Challenge that was originally started by Jane from The Small Fabric of My Life. I was intrigued by the idea and decided to also join the Wardrobe Capsule Challenge. So basically the rule is to choose ten items of clothing from your wardrobe (including shoes) and mix and match them for five days between Monday September 28th and Friday October 2nd. You are also allowed five accessories which include jewellery, scarves, bag, belts etc. Underwear and hosiery do not come under the ten items and five accessories.

I know the date seem so long ago but I did finished my challenge that week. I just got carried away by my daily routines and blogging jobs that makes me forgot to post the result of my Wardrobe Capsule Challenge sooner! Oh, silly me! So anyway, I'm gonna post my Wardrobe Capsule Challenge Week right now, it's better late than never post it at all, right?! ;p

So, first of all...here are the 10 wardrobe items and 5 accessories that I choose for this challenge:

10 wardrobe items:

Dark Pink Cardigan, Gold embellished Tank, Black tee, Pink Stripe skirt, Grey patterned skirt;
Black Skinny jeans, Black tube dress, Grey Cardigan, White open toe, Black flats.



5 accessories:
Allure necklace, Black wide belt, Black bracelet, Black quilted bag, White quilted bag


Although for a first-timer I'm quite overwhelmed at first, especially when choosing which 10 wardrobe items and accessories to use that can be rotated to be worn in 5 consecutive days, but I find it quite easy and challenging so I end up having fun with it. So here's what I came up at the end of the week; five days of rotated clothes and accessories:

MONDAY:

Grey cardi, Grey patterned skirt, Black wide belt, Black bracelet, Allure necklace, Black flats & Black bag.

TUESDAY:

Pink Cardi, Pink Stripe skirt, White open toe shoes, White bag, Allure necklace.

WEDNESDAY:

Black tee, Grey patterned skirt, Black skinny jeans, Black wide belt, Allure necklace, White open toe & White bag.

THURSDAY:

Black tube dress, Pink Cardi, Black Wide belt, Black flats, Black bracelet & Black bag.

FRIDAY:

Black tube dress, Gold embellished tank, Black bracelet, White open toe shoes & Black bag.


Hmm, maybe because I'm used to plan my outfits ahead so I don't have any hard time with this challenge. I used black as basic color here, to be easy to combine with everything. And I also added some bright colors to keep it off the boring area. I think I'm gonna be participating again next year, meanwhile you could check all the stylish bloggers who participate in this year's wardrobe capsule challenge. Too bad I'm too late to tell Jane about mine ^o^ Oh well, maybe next year..!
Anyway, here is all the pictures put together, tadaa... My Wardrobe Capsule Challenge:

Perricone MD Pore Refining Skincare Giveaway ! - CLOSED -


“Wrinkled, sagging skin is not the inevitable result of growing older. It is a disease and you can fight it. You can look your best, feel your best, and enjoy beautiful skin and optimal health every day of your life.”

-- Dr. Perricone


You must already know Perricone MD by now. Perricone MD is a skin care line brought to you by Dr. Nicholas Perricone, M.D, a board-certified dermatologist and world renowned healthy-aging expert.

Dr. Perricone’s constant research and groundbreaking skin care products keep him at the forefront of advancements in the field of skincare. One of the famous skin care product is the Amine Complex Face Lift. According to the wesbite: Amine Complex Face Lift is a fast absorbing treatment that delivers dramatic results as it helps to firm and lift, visibly transforming skin to a more youthful appearance. It renews and smoothes skin's surface, minimizes the look of deep lines and wrinkles and restores skin to a radiant and healthy appearance with high levels of DMAE and topical Vitamin C Ester.

Yes, I've never heard of DMAE either but I learned from the website that DMAE provides many benefits for your skin such as tightening and toning the skin as well as diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This product can also help induce pore regulation so it's good for pore refining of the skin. Just apply this Amine Complex Face Lift in the morning to the face and neck in a gentle circular motion then you'll see the result of improvements on your skin.

THIS WEEK'S HOT OFFER: Get 15% Disc from COTTON CANDY


Once upon a time, a Girl chanced upon an island when she was on one of her adventures in her trusty old Boat. The island was a very colourful place full of Cotton Candy Trees. 'How magical", she thought and she fell deeply in love with it. She set about exploring the island on foot and discovered many wonderful and whimsical flora and fauna living here. However, the island was polluted with bad-smelling rubbish and dirty plates and bowls.

In the days that follow, she became good friends with all on the island. Together, she helped to clean up the whole island. They planted cute matchsticks to form a Garden, a barnyard was built for the lambs, a hut for the little bears. At last, it was all finished! They decided to name the place Cotton Candy Island.


Now if you found a store's introduction as magical as the above, would you not enter the magic place ?! Well I certainly would !
The above intro is from a cute little store called Cotton Candy Island. I found this charming store while browsing and got my eyes hooked on their cute products almost immediately! This store carries cute little things with such attractive and dreamy characters and designs such as diaries, notebooks and planners with lovely and stunning designs; they also have cute pens and stamps as well as charming luggage tags and ear buds, all with captivating details that you just can't resist.

Skin MD Natural Review & Giveaway ! - CLOSED -

Everyday skin care routine should provide complete protection and hydration to the skin.
Now let's meet Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion.

Repeat, "Shielding Lotion" !

What is a shielding lotion, you asked?
A shielding lotion is a new concept in skin care that is far more effective as a dry skin care treatment than mere moist­urizing lotions or protective creams. If you suffer from dry skin, you know that just using a moisturizing lotion doesn't solve the problem. And that is when you need this SkinMD Natural Shielding Lotion. A shielding lotion does much more than just treat dry skin – it’s a new kind of skin care product that makes a real difference to all skin types.
I received a bottle of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion and 20 sachets of it to be reviewed. Although I don't have dry skin but I know that I can also use it daily because it doesn't feel oily in my skin. It sinks right in and no grease residue. But what's more important is because a shielding lotion basically forms a protective shield in the outer layer of skin to keep moisture-robbing irritants away and allow natural oils and moisture remain in the skin to keep it stay moist. That's what every skin needs!

SKIN BARRIER:
Every day our skin is exposed to chemicals, toxins and irritants which stripped away our skin's natural protective barrier. Daily use of soaps, shampoos, etc and some harsh weather condition could results with itchy red dry skin. Now this is where the shielding lotion comes in. By using it daily I'm protected from irritated skin because this shielding lotion will keep me protected even after hand washing! And it can be used on your face, body, hands and feet! You can even use it as a base for makeup as many cosmetic products contains toxins and chemicals. It doesn't clog pores and it's so light you'll feel like you don't have anything on. One product that fits for all body area means no need to buy separate lotions, it also means cheaper self-maintenance fee ^o^

CRACKED HEELS:
Eventhough this product can be used for all skin types because of it's moisture protection benefits but I just want to tell you guys that if you have really dry skin or even chapped dry skin then try this product!
I know this because my mother has dry skin, she also has cracked heels which she's been trying to fight off for quite some time now. She's been using this lotion for a week now and has been praising about the results she got. Her cracked heels are much much better and she can see that it starting to heal and that she finally has some hopes to say goodbye to her cracked heels.

SKIN PROBLEMS:
My dad has some skin problem, probably eczema or some kind of psoriasis (i don't know, he never checked it to the doctor). When I read in the brochure that this lotion can also help heals eczema, psoriasis and similar skin problems then I told my mom to use it on my dad too. And now, we can see a significant difference on his skin! It really reduces the redness and his skin condition is really improving to a better state now.
So we have really high hopes for this magic lotion. It really has many benefits to our skin. This is a great quality product, even recommended by dermatologists! It's hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic, Paraben free, Fragrance and colorant free plus no animal testing and doesn't contain animal products!


And now to the Giveaway!
Skin MD has offered me to give one full bottle of their shielding lotion to one of T.T.T's lucky readers so that you could also feel the benefit of this new concept of shielding lotion ^__^

Mikimoto Pearls



Have you heard about Mikimoto Pearls? Well, I've heard about it but don't really know about it. But I've been browsing and found out that Mikimoto Pearls is apparently the highest quality pearl there is, at least for now.

It was named after Kokichi Mikimoto, a Japanese man who has succeeded in culturing pearls into what become known as Mikimoto pearls now. He started it in 1893. Mikimoto invented the proprietary grading system of sorting and grading pearls which other companies have since used it as a standard. Through tireless dedication, research and experiments Kokichi almost single-handedly invented the modern cultured pearl industry. The Mikimoto Pearl Store, a product of Kokichi's study of Western aesthetics and his own unique sense of style, soon attracted worldwide attention. It wasn't long before the elegant beauty of Kokichi's pearls was eventually recognized by women throughout the world and "MIKIMOTO" became synonymous with the finest quality pearls.

Did you know? Today, only the top 3 to 5 percent of the pearl's harvest meets the rigorous quality control standards that Mikimoto has established. So that explains why Mikimoto pearls has been the highest quality in pearl industry. No wonder a lot of celebrities and famous rich people wear it, you can tell by how beautifully shiny and gorgeous the pearls they wore. And that also explains the price tag that comes with it ^o^
