"Ibu memberitahu adik supaya tidak lupa membeli susu dari kedai runcit nanti" 

Err, my Bahasa skills (which I have spent 11 years learning and mastering) have not been utilized for the past 2 years. I can't even remember how I actually managed to score an A during SPM.

Gucci Guilty | Smell Guiltily Good!

[ADVERTORIAL] 

Christmas is the time of year that I will always look forward to. Be it, spending time with family and friends or just have a feast of turkeys after turkeys! Well, not forgetting - celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ ; the almighty Son of God who has sacrificed his life for us :) Nonetheless, its definitely the time of the year when we get together with our loved ones (doesn't really matter if you're a Christian or non-Christian) and just have a great time together! Ahh, and of course; exchanging presents! I won't deny that I've always enjoyed the joy of giving and receiving presents! Well, who wouldn't? :) 





Christmas shopping can be enjoyable but also rather challenging for most of us. What to get for who? What if he or she doesn’t like it?


Well to help you narrow down the field a bit, surveys have shown that many think fragrances are the most thoughtful gift. But how do you pick ‘The One’ out of the hundreds of fragrances available in stores?

Well our friends at P&G Prestige have compiled some useful tips (below) to help you and make your Christmas shopping something enjoyable!



Life’s little luxuries
Spritzing on a fragrance and inhaling a scent which you love can be a real sensorial treat. Up the ante and make the entire experience even more luxurious by including complimentary scented toiletries such as a matching fragranced bath gel and body lotion to complete the ritual. You’re giving more than just a scent – a fragrance gift set becomes an indulgent, pampering experience that the person can enjoy over and over again!

Top tips
After smelling too many different fragrances in the beauty hall, and it gets difficult to tell the difference between each fragrance, sniff the unperfumed skin on your arm. This helps to recalibrate your nose, and is a technique used by perfumers themselves. Try not to wear fragrance if you know that you will be going perfume shopping as well since that will affect your sense of smell.

Smells like a holiday
Since every day can’t be a holiday (for most of us), the ability to relive the holiday mood in our cubicles at work is priceless - remembering these special times can turn around even the worst of days.

Travelling someplace is a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. Months after returning, we can still remember the beautiful memories of the adventures we enjoyed, pampering we treated ourselves to and indulgent meals we ate. Bring these memories back to life with scent. Your sense of smell is the only sense that is directly linked to your emotions because olfactory (sense of smell) experiences are stored in our subconscious mind. By using a new fragrance when you are away on holiday, all the happy memories and good emotions that you have during your holiday will be linked to this new smell in your subconscious. So this fragrance will give you a feel-good effect each time you catch a whiff of it as it brings back that same holiday spirit. We’ve got recommendations for every dream destination below.

Seaside relaxation
Pina coladas, snoozing on a soft sandy beach, eating fresh seafood with a side of sea breeze...there can be nothing more relaxing than a beach holiday. Whether you’re in a hut or a fancy villa, there’s that same relaxed vibe. Using an aquatic fragrance during such a holiday will tie up all the fun times in your subconscious to this scent. Each time you catch a whiff of this oceanic scent, it will transport you to those carefree moments spent in the sun and sea. The aquatic or marine family of scents have an ingredient called Calone, which is what gives them the smell of the ocean.

Tropical escape
Exotic holiday to the tropical paradise that is South East Asia sounds like your idea of a dream holiday? Used in the top notes of fragrances since the 1990s, tropical fruit notes lend an exotic touch since they remind the wearer of the tropical paradise where they are commonly found. Notes of coconut, lychee, watermelon and mango are popular additions in fragrances; they smell delicious and add a playful dimension.

Mountain seclusion
Being surrounded by the beauty of dense green forests in the mountains appeals to those who wish to leave city life behind for open space and serenity. As you breathe in the crisp, clean air, you’ll notice the smell of wood and greens. Wood notes are important in the base notes of both masculine and feminine perfumes. They linger on your skin for up to eight hours after application, adding depth and soul, and helping the scent last longer.

Two wood notes used extensively in perfumery are sandalwood and cedarwood. Sandalwood has a milky, warm and incense character, which makes a scent warmer. The green, earthy, woody cedarwood is added to give a drier effect. The green and mossy scent of forests comes from the mosses which grow on trees. Oak moss (mosses which grow on oak trees in the forest) is predominantly used in male fragrances. Used long after you have returned home from your log cabin in the mountains, these woody, mossy scents when will remind you of your back-to-nature experience.

Recapturing the good times
Scents can evoke the feelings of happiness and true relaxation on your holiday and transport you back to a faraway place. Wear the fragrance when you need to recall the good times you had, maybe on a bad day, when you’re feeling stressed or simply need a slight mood boost. Even if you didn’t wear a new fragrance on your last holiday, pick up a new scent as a treat. Choose one which reminds you of your favourite holiday – whether it’s a beachside frolic, tropical sojourn or mountain retreat. Notes in the perfume may remind you of the things you’d caught a whiff of on previous holidays and stored away in your subconscious.





Gucci Guilty 50ml EDT Spray

Gucci Guilty is a warm yet striking oriental floral with hedonism at its heart.

The scent seizes the attention with a flamboyant opening born of the natural rush that is mandarin - imbued
with a modish transparency - shimmering alongside an audacious fist of pink pepper.

The middle notes are an alluring concoction of heady lilac and geranium, laced with the succulent tactility
of peach - all velvet femininity with a beguiling hint of provocation.

The patchouli that is the hallmark of Gucci fragrances here conveys a message of strength, while the
voluptuousness of amber suggests deep femininity.

The effect is at once arresting and compellingly seductive. Frida Gianinni observes: ‘What we have created
in Gucci Guilty is something hypnotic’.







Gucci Guilty Purse Spray

The Gucci Guilty Purse Spray is essentially Gucci Guilty in a very portable and stylish mini-spray designed for women to carry them around in their purse or handbag.

A spray that you can use when you’re out and about to give you that alluring scent when needed. The set comes with four (4) 15ml vials containing the fragrance that you can insert into the spray.




 

You can get Gucci Guilty at major department stores around Malaysia.

Recommended Retail Price

Gucci Guilty EDT 50ml – RM271.00
Gucci Guilty EDT Purse Spray – RM278.00


Now that you can get the Gucci Guilty at the major departmental stores nationwide, you won't have to crack your head thinking of what to gift your friends and family anymore. Well, I've gotten mine and I'm absolutely in love with the fragrance. One thing for sure - you can never go wrong with PERFUMES ;) What more if its GUCCI GUILTY? Have fun this Christmas and I'm sure we'll all smell GUILTILY GOOD ;) xx

VLOG || Hiatus

My apologies for the hiatus. Have been experiencing some really unnecessary technical issues with blogpost. ( IF IT CAN'T BE RECTIFIED, I'M AFRAID I'LL HAVE TO SAY - hello WORDPRESS!) 

Nonetheless, a very short VLOG since I can't be uploading any photos at the moment. 

I know this is probably not the first time I'm saying this, but this is definitely not the most 'fabmorous' (fabulous + glamorous) way to have a VLOG done but I just can't be bothered to put on make-up (aka. dress up). 

I'm sure the video is still 'watchable' but if you're expecting flawless face, hot girl with boobies, then don't watch it. Just my two cents.

Maggy Wears || Emcee Couture

It's either the 'I'm too tall' or 'I'm too petite' kinda fashion crisis that most of us girls face these days. It's really difficult to find something that fits you perfectly unless, well.. you have a Giselle Bundchen figure or if you're as curvy as Kim Kardashian. And more often than not, we Asian girls tend to find the apparels in stores - to be WELL FITTED BUT TOO SHORT or PERFECT DESIGN BUT ILL FITTED :( You know what, that happens to me all the time. Especially when it comes to jumpers!! My all time favourite apparels - I always find them too short for my ginormous body :( 

Fret not girls, I'm here to introduce you EMCEE COUTURE where you'll discover your shopping experience like never before! :) 

Here's what Emcee Couture has to say  

"Too long, short, snugly, or big? Worry not! Request for your favourite piece of creation to be made to your preference." 

Yes, you heard it! You get to alter your dresses to fit your body perfectly! Better still, if you have any design in mind, just let them know and they'll try their best to cater to your preferences :) Looking for bridemaids' dresses? Then look no further babes. EMCEE COUTURE IT IS! By far, the most efficient and humble designer I've met! Most of the apparels/items that they have in store are mostly self-manufactered by the designer herself! They're all made from scratch. Talk about TALENT! 

Here are some of my favourites! 

#1. One Sided Sleeves Bodycon Dress 
with Sheer Lantern Sleeves. 

Simple and nice. Just pair it with a loud chocker or necklace, and a pair of stilettos then you're good to go! Wore it for my first hosting debut, and everyone loved the dress! Thank you Emcee Couture :) 





#2. Convertibles 
I'm sure most of you are familiar with the convertibles by now! That one essential dress that every wardrobe needs. ONE DRESS AND A MILLION WAYS TO WEAR IT! It won't matter if you wear your dress TWICE or even THRICE now. Nobody would even realize ;) 

Emcee Couture offers four types of convertibles - three of which are different skirt styles and one overalls pallazo pants ( the one I'm wearing in Black). 

Thinking of getting my second convertible already. So easy to wear!  But, this time I'll go with a skirt! :) 




Since I've always had trouble looking for a well fitting pallazo pants (they're always too short), Emcee Couture had mine custom made to fit my height! Not too short, not too long - just the way I like it. You can have yours done too. Just check them out on their Facebook page ( link below). 



Here are more designs from Emcee Couture. From skirts, dresses, tops and even overalls! Fashion crisis, whaat? If you want to find out more about EMCEE COUTURE, check out their FACEBOOK and BLOG




One more thing before I forget. If you're thinking that these custom made dresses would be really expensive and unaffordable, you're WRONG! It's absolutely affordable and reasonable. Trust me ladies, you'll love it! Remember to check out their FB and Blog to keep yourself updated with their manufacturing batches. Since they are custom made, it would of course take time. So be sure to keep track of their latest updates! xx

Maggy Wears || IHF

Everyday is a rainy day - that's probably our winter ( though I'd still prefer snow! :P ) Nonetheless, its time to stock up on your knitwears, sweaters and anything thick and comfy! Well, if you have been following my instagram (@magdelinewang), I'm sure you'll notice that I have been wearing lots of comfy sweaters and anything that's perfect for a rainy day. Well, it's also because that I have been terribly sick and unwell :( So much for the weather huh? 

Anyway, I'll be travelling to Shanghai for Christmas ( supaa excites cus I don't have to summer it this year!) and hence, my sudden need to purchase all the 'winter' wears. If you are looking for knitwears, sweaters or pullovers.. well, look no further. IHF - yep, they've got it all! 

#1. Snowflake Pullover ( in Cream) 
I couldn't decide between the Cream and Black - hence I took both! Best of both worlds ;) xx 
You can always layer them esp if you're headed for winter countries! Double win! xx 

#2. Snowflake Pullover ( in Black) 


#3. Leslie Oversize Knit Top in Maroon 
Absolutely comfy! My best companion during the rainy days. 



#4. Camberley Half Sleeve Dress in Forest Green
Perfect for casual day out! I personally think that the color goes really well for Xmas occasions. So, Christmas parties anyone? :)  


Good news ladies. IHF has just launched their latest Fall/Winter collection. Be ready to go cray cray! I've already got my eyes on a few of the pieces now. The ombre pullovers are major love!! Well, heads up- their items run out of stock very very fast. So make sure you place your orders before they start selling like hot cupcakes!

Fret not if some of the items have been sold out - sometimes they do backorder. So, keep yourself updated at their FACEBOOK PAGE.






Happy Shopping ladies xx

Impromptu Penang

I'm pretty sure most of us have that 'well-planned-plan-but-never-happened' kinda plan.. (you get what I mean?) HAHA! I'm sure you do. All the 'plans' of having an all-girls trip to Bangcock, Phuket and my 'god-knows-when-it-will-actually-happen' solo travel to Europe.. STILL HAVE YET TO BE EXECUTED. Typical typical ;) Nonetheless, this super impromptu trip to Penang was quite an exception. And, surprisingly was executed pretty damn well! Kudos to Nita and Aaron :P 

Well..like what Jane said - if it wasn't for Aaron's departure back to Beijing, it is very unlikely for the trip to happen. Chinaman is the boss mah! :P 

p/s: Readers, I know you don't quite know who's who from the names. But you'll get the hang of it soon ;) Well, I'm pretty sure you know who Juanita is. 

Back to the story- so yep! We were supposed to depart at 2.30am ( ADVICE: Don't drive w/o any sleep prior, the entire clan's lives are in your hands)  and we somehow ended up leaving at 5am only. Managed to reach Penang by around 10am. Phew, it sure was a bumpy ride. But you know what, they're worth it ;) 

Will cut the LONNNNGGGGG story short. I reckon the pictures should suffice as the 'narration'. Too much details if I were to jot everything down. You get the drift ;) 

We left before dawn! 
Rest stop somewhere along the North-South highway. 
I'm going straight to the point. Well, if you come to Penang- it has to be their infamous FOOD! And our first stop ( wait, I think it was our 3rd stop.. anyway) was the NASI KANDAR!! Super fattening but I couldn't NOT try it :( 

Nasi Kandar - 1 ||  Maggy - 0 

Nasi Kandar Line Clear. Was told there was a better one called Nasi Kandar Beratur but this was good enough to keep our tummy happy. One thing inevitable though- THE LONG ASS QUEUE. Worth it lah, worth it. But I suggest you get a partner to share the portions with you. Prevent from overeating! Thank God for Jane who was willing to ber-partner with me :P Otherwise... 






Sotonggg! 














I almost caught Nita doin' the Gangnam across the street. ALMOST. 
And the beach. Well.. OF COURSE! It's Penang hello? Plus, I'm so damn sick and tired of the concrete jungle. Really don't mind taking a month to just stay by the beach, wake up to the sound of the gushing waves, the sea breeze.. oh, life would've been perfect then. And I shall keep dreaming :p






Errr.. Baywatch or Gaywatch? 

Shane x Nita x Jane x YoursTruly 

Had such an amazing time w the peeps over at Penang! Managed to also stop by Ipoh for dinner before resuming our journey. Its always better with great friends around huh? ;) Just a really short worded post cus I'm currently down with major flu, sore throat and fever. What a bummer! :( Can't deny that I travelled a tad too much just within a week. Taken a toll on my body :P Can't wait to the rest of the year! 2 vacations in December and an exciting journey ahead! 

Well, till then! xx
