Tom Ford Lola Sunnies 😎

Wednesday, 24 May 2017


I just ordered a pair of cat eye sunnies online from SmartBuyGlasses, and I think I look great in them, do you agree?

We got a Pomeranian Puppy! And she fits nicely inside my Mizzue bag!

I apologize for the lack of updates on my personal life.
I got a pomeranian puppy as my boyfriend's belated birthday present earlier January this year and she's such a doll!


We named her Nessie, after the Loch Ness monster 😊
Here's a pic taken back in January when we first got her --

And here she is now at 6 months old!





She fits into my bucket bag just nicely!

Tammara Verrelli Royal Blue Bag from Mizzue.
This bag is really spacious (measuring 18 X 25 X 24 cm) and Nessie could fit in really snuggly there hehs 😂  It is made of good quality leather and I like it that it's so versatile for many occasions! (esp bringing my pup for a day out in the sun!)

When we first got Nessie, we had interrupted late nights due to her constant feeding time plus she always needs to go out to pee and poop from her cage. It was a lot of panda eyes and constant checking up on her, we were basically behaving like new parents!

If you'd like to see more of Nessie, you could follow me on Instagram @gracemyu and search for her hashtag #NessieThePom 🐶

Do share with me if you also have any tips on raising a puppy (esp Poms)? I'd love to hear more on your experiences here!

Clarins launches Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Control

Monday, 8 May 2017


Back in February, I was one of the two bloggers who were invited to be part of Clarins Media Trip to Port Dickson, in conjunction of the new Body Fit Anti-Cellulite Control launch. By now I guess you could tell that I really enjoy using Clarins products, because I keep featuring them on my blog 😃

Body Fit is a body lotion (I only came to learn that Clarins also have a body line when I attended this event!), aimed to target cellulites. Body Fit minimizes the appearance of cellulite while refining, instantly lifting and reshaping the body's contours. Developed through Clarins research, quince leaf extract targets the three main factors responsible for the appearance of cellulite for visibly refined contours.


Here's some of the ingredients found in the product --

Quince leaf extract: targets adipocytes responsible for the appearance of cellulite.
Extracts of celosia, baccharis and water mint: help reduce the growth of fat tissue.
Caffeine: slimming properties.
Horse chestnut: optimises the draining effect.
Sunflower phospholipids: maintain hydration and skin comfort.

Application Directions:
Apply in the morning and/or at night with gentle smoothing motions, working from the ankles up to the waist, and paying extra attention to the thighs, hips and buttocks. 
There is also a detailed Clarins Self-Massage Body Contouring Method described in the leaflet that comes together with the bottle when you purchase.


Exercise Time! 



Fitness Instructor Nana Al Haleq (who also has a huge Instagram following of 154k currently) was our special guest that afternoon. She created a HIIT program that uses our own body weight as part of the routine.

Water Sports

Stole these pics from my fellow blogger friend Fiona, who happens to be the only other blogger invited for the media trip (the rest were from newspapers, magazines and digital publications)!

We were also part of a water sports activity which got my body really sore the next day hahaha.
Haven't been exercising as frequently as I should, which explains the condition lololol.


Personal Experience 


I typically use Body Fit right after I shower, just after my sweaty workout. I feel that the tingly sensations that it creates help stimulate in fat burning during post-recovery session. It smells good and it somehow feels therapeutic while applying it.

These anti-cellulite creams do work (especially those with aminophylline), because I have used some in the past and it has worked well with exercise. Personally, I find that if you were to use Body Fit without exercising, it would be a wasting the product's full potential because you would not be able to tell a noticeable difference.

As for me, to keep cellulites at bay, I have to incorporate cardio and weight exercises into my routine. Cardio alone is definitely not enough to get rid of them. I can see results as soon as two weeks with regular use!


Repurchase?
So far I like using this, but I could also get something similar (AmiLean from MuscleMania) for a cheaper price, so I'm on the fence. AmiLean (RP RM170) can sometimes be Out of Stock, so Clarins Body Fit would be a good substitute, albeit a more expensive one. So I guess I'd resort to repurchasing only when AmiLean is OOS.
