:: i'm back! ::

It has been two weeks of silence and I'm back. Anybody missed me?

Anyway two weeks already gone and I'm glad everything went well although there were few challenges occured. Oh, by the way I was mentioning about us moving into another house. The new house is not very far from the previous one actually, just few blocks away but the moving out - moving in process was so tiring. I never like moving. When I was single I used to move few times but that time the items I owned was merely contained in one bedroom but now, it was the entire house!

I have few stories to update, especially about my little boy but I need some time to edit the photos and all so this entry is just to say "hello" to my readers and thank my new followers - thank you for following, really appreciate it :-). I'm eager to share about some areas in our house too but I haven't complete unpacking but here is a sneak peek of one of my favourite so far:

Will be back again so see you later!

:: domino's regular pizza at 10 cents only! ::

Yesterday I woke up with a Whatsapp message from Rabby telling me about Domino's pizza 10sen pizza promo. It was too good to be true (but it was true) because apparently Domino's is having a promotion starting yesterday where 1 regular pizza worth 10 cents only for 100 minutes and 100 walk-in customers each day at 100 selected outlets (2 outlets per day) through out the promo period. Coincidentally, one of the first two outlets to be chosen was Taipan USJ which is near our house so we took our chance to grab the offer.

The promotion started at 12:30 pm yesterday and people have been queuing since 11 something. Each customer is allowed to purchase only one (1) pizza and we were lucky enough to be the 95th and 96th customer although arrived at 12:40 pm. It took us almost an hour of waiting to get the pizzas but it was worth it because we only paid 20 cents (no tax)for the Extravaganzza and Classified Chicken. At normal price each regular pizza is priced at RM23.80 so we have saved RM47.40 for two pizzas (yeay!). Another best thing is despite the promotional price, customers can still select toppings and crusts but surcharge applies for Cheese Burst Double Decker Crust, Extreme Edge Crust & First Class Pizza range. 

This promo is yet the best so far and kudos to the Domino's team for making it real. Refer Dominos Pizza Malaysia FB page to learn more about the 10sen pizza promo and here are outlets involved through out November:

Please note that the 100 minutes time differs everyday. Yesterday the promo started at 12:30 pm until 2:10 pm but for today, it is going to be at 8:00 pm until 9:40 pm.

Happy pizza-ing! :-D

:: mac cosmetics & anya hindmarch christmas 2012 ::

It is end of the year and to me, it literally means 'stay-away-from-shopping-malls-months'. Why? Firstly it is the year end sale and secondly because this is the time where items like cosmetics, perfumes and handbags come in cute, pretty, to-die-for collections. Usually these items also come with this invisible tag saying "you will regret if you don't buy me" because as we knew, Christmas collection is always exclusive and limited just like this year's MAC Cosmetics Glamour Daze Holiday Colour collection. Yes, I never fail to keep up with MAC's Christmas collection every single year and this time around they are opening the campaign booth at KLCC Concourse Area since 7th till tomorrow, 11th November 2012. Nor and I were attending an event at KLCC last Thursday so we took the opportunity to take a look at the latest offer. 

They had this huge set-up in the middle of the KLCC concourse area but almost no customer was around that time, maybe because it was around 3:00 pm. However, we later knew the reason as we were poorly attended by a brunette sales assistant who treated us as if we did not have any money or in a nicer way, knew nothing about MAC *rolling eyes*. It was the first negative experience we ever had and even worst when she told us that the travelling pouch was sold out on the launching day whereas it was still available at the MAC outlet just across the booth. I also noticed that she kept on telling us to go visit the outlet and no wonder there were many customers there! As far as I know, most promoters at MAC promo booth are usually freelancers so too bad they were paying that girl for bad reputation and poor customer service. Such a waste! In the end however we were still happy because we were attended nicely and given free eye makeup by the sales assistant at the MAC outlet itself (forgot her name already) and she was also happy with Nor for giving her a big comission for buying few items.

Reflecting its name, the Glamour Daze Holiday Collection comes in sophisticated and glamour packaging consisting leopard print, lace print and exclusive chic, satin-tufted casings. Everything was so tempting (and again, come with the "you-will-regret-if-you-don't-buy-me" invisible tag) *sigh*. Colour pallettes for eyes are between shades of green, purple and brown with pink to coral to nude lips.

My personal favourite is the exclusive face kit (the one next to the brush set in pic above), which consists of a lipstick, a blusher, an eyeliner and a blusher brush in a pretty box with mirror inside that can be turned into a chic clutch. Such a good deal for RM315 and I am jealous because my BFF owns it now T_T. Apart from that, another favourite is the foldable cosmetic bag (pic right, second line) which is only RM135 (and Nor owns that too *double T_T*). That bag is something worth buying for makeup lovers and I am not surprise if it is already sold out because it is chic yet affordable . Anyway, you can go and check out the entire MAC Holiday 2012 collection at the nearest outlet.

After checking out the make up, we went to a special event by Anya Hindmarch entitled 'Dance with the Marano' in conjunction with its latest collection of Marano clutch, all thanks to my partner-in-crime Nor who got the invite. I never seen a Marano before and surprised to see the glitter clutch came with tiny colourful LED lights. Never seen such thing before and there was another one with some sort of snow globe at one of its side. Very creative, huh?

Besides watching the socialites mingling with each other and eating every type of finger food offered (we were both hungry because it was already 3 something and we didn't had lunch) we had the chance to check out rest of Anya Hindmarch collection in the store. Apparently, glitters are conquering this year's Christmas collection because they can be seen everywhere on clutches, handbags and shoes.

Each guest was entitled to take a photo and dance with the Marano inside a photo booth so here is yours truly, dancing with the lil glittery Anya Hindmarch Marano clutch :-)

:: kardashian kollection now in malaysia ::

Who never heard of the Kardashians? I believe they are among most sensational families worldwide and I have become one of the fans who got stuck in front of tv watching their series either Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kourtney & Khloe take Miami, Kourtney & Kim take New York and even Khloe & Lamar. I was happy knowing that they are collaborating their fashion line with Dorothy Perkins and was even happier for getting the chance attending the Kardashian Kollection Preview Launch Party in Malaysia which was held at Dorothy Perkins Mid Valley yesterday evening.

Went there with no other than my partner-in-crime, Nor but did not stay long. There was not much to be seen from the collection but the items were pretty and reflected the girls. I can immediately imagine Kim wearing the leopard print dress while Kourtney wearing the printed blouse and Khloe donning the printed blazer. What I like the most is their glitter envelope clutch. Glitter is totally in the season right now and you could never go wrong with one. Another thing I noticed about this kollection is the price. Being someone who frequently pay visits to DP, I have to say that Kardashian Kollection is selling at higher price (around half to double) than usual. I guess that should be expected when there is a collaboration with a strong brand because customers not only buy the name but also its exclusivity as the items are limited. From what I read on Twitter (I follow all 3 sisters as well as Rob and Scott) items sold during online preview in the UK were sold out. 

Got the chance to pose with one of the inspiring hijabi-fashionista blogger, Shea (Hi Shea, love reading your blog!)

Anyway the theme was Gold & Glamour so I chose to wear gold accessories on top of the teal and black outfit.

- Cleopatra necklace: Lovisa
- Clutch & Belt: Dorothy Perkins
- Bracelet watch: DKNY
- Dress: Dorothy Perkins
- Pants: Mango
- Heels: Kiss & Tell (worn with my DIY shoe clips)

The Kardashian Kollection is available at selected Dorothy Perkins outlets (One Utama, Mid Valley, Empire, Bangsar, Pavilion, Sunway Pyramid and the Curve) starting today, Friday 09.11.2012 but you can view the items, together with other DP collection on the new Dorothy Perkins Malaysia online shopping site.

:: diy - shoe clips & shoe deco ::

I wear heels to office almost every working day but flat shoes are my essential wear during weekends. I bought a number of flats during pregnancy and still wearing them until today. Among my favourites are these identical flats from Bonita but due to frequent wearing, both of them have become worn out and the white one just lost the blingz two weeks ago *sad*.
I know I have to depart with the grey one but the white one is still in wearable condition so last Sunday night I decided to do something with both of them.
First, I cut off both blingz from the grey shoes because they are still in good condition. Instead of sticking them permanently on another shoe, I decided to make a shoe clip which is more convenient as it is transferable. I already bought some clip earrings some time ago so I stick them at the back of the ribbons using UHU glue and stick a layer of felt on top of the metals to hold them stronger and voila, the shoe clips are done. Now I can decorate any plain shoe without any hassle.
So, what happened to the white flats?
The same process was done to it where I cut off the blingz and whatever was left. Using a green gross grain ribbon, I made a pair of loop straps and also a pair of pompom flowers using white felt. I put a crystal bead in the middle of the flower just to enhance it and sew the flower on top of the ribbons. At 3:00 am last Sunday night I became a cobbler by sewing the decorations to the shoes and ta-daaa... the shoes went through a makeover and able to meet the sun again soon!

:: my must-have from coach's legacy holiday 2012 ::

I literally screamed with excitement when I read about BagAddictsAnnonymous giveaway as she is collaborating with Coach in giving away items from the latest Coach Legacy Holiday 2012 collection. Coach has always been one of my favourite brand and one thing I love about their latest Legacy holiday collection is the solid, vivid colours that can effortlessly enhance any outfit.

Although spoilt with choices, the must-have item for me would be the Legacy Penny Shoulder Purse and since most of my handbags are plain coloured, the colourblock plaid penny in the middle will definitely become a statement piece.

I might be a bit greedy here but I just could not resist this Legacy Colourblock Large Leather Clutch too which is spacious enough to hold the daily essentials during a short outing or a trip to mamak. It is impossible to say no for such pretty colour combo and cute mini tassels. Major love!

For your info, BagAddictsAnonymous is giving away not only one but two (2) Coach Legacy Leather Medium Skinny worth RM300 each and I believed this post has qualified me to be in the running of winning one (wish me luck!). Another way to win the other one is via Facebook so if you are interested to participate, check out this post from the BagAddictsAnonymous blog for more details.

More items from the Legacy Collection can be viewed at the nearest Coach outlet around you or visit Coach's official website to feast your eyes on the entire collection and sign up for the newsletter to receive free mystery gift that can be redeemed from any of the outlet.
