The Everyday Bag

 
 

 

"The Everyday Bag" is sexy looking, durable and water resistant.

 

Here's a real life "What's In My Bag"...(throws away 3 days old cookie wrapper)

 

Recently, I got emotionally attached to this weirdly shaped bag which is groundbreaking because I hated it at the first glance and now I wish to sling it on my shoulders, over pajamas, to bed. Made out of soft pebbled faux leather, stitched with care, comes with a medium sized pouch to keep things organized and a wide canvas strap that sits on the shoulders comfortably. This was nominated as "The Everyday Bag" for a few good reasons. I live a fast pace life, we all do, finding a bag that makes us feel good, fits all of our essentials and is practical for the 24/7 isn't the easiest. It fits my planner, wallet, passport, business card holder, 8-hour cream, a flat wristlet (earphone, portable charger and cable) and a furry pouch (miscellaneous). [not here, whoops!]

I am an advocate of little handbags but there are days where we need to lug along something specially important, like an extra diaper or a bottle of beer (in my case). Wonderfully sized at 28cm x 22cm 13.5cm [Height x Length x Width]. If you would like to know more about The Everyday Bag, don't hesitate to send us an email. We have tried and tested the bag for 2 months now and would love to share our thoughts too! The Everyday Bag is selling @ RM85 with free delivery throughout Malaysia.

How Handmade Silver Bangles Can Complement Any Outfit

No outfit is complete without jewelry and a silver bangle can be the perfect addition to almost any look. Simple yet timeless, silver bangles can be worn with ease from day into night, complementing both casual and evening outfits. They can be styled up or down to fit with the occasion and easily add elegance to an understated ensemble. Here are some styling tips to get the most out of your silver bangles.


Intermission: I've recently bought a thin silver band with barely-there diamonds as a daily reminder to be humble, low profile and gentle. Stay true to myself and be a gentlewoman.

 

 

COLOUR that you choose to wear with your silver bangle is important if you want them to pop. Silver work wonders with the colour-way I have in my wardrobe because it provides a subtle 'edge' to my more minimal style. It also enhances cooler undertone which is why I prefer wearing silver jewelry! 

EVERYONE recommends to not wear Silver and Gold together but I personally think doubling up adds dimension and interest to a personal style! Just if you can't find any that suit your fancy, have a look at the gorgeous handmade silver bangles from Corazon Latino for a whole range of styles to suit any outfit. There is a say to not wear Silver and Gold at once.

STYLE thin silver wristlet with a long skirt for a bohemian daytime look. Wear chunky silver bangles with organic twists and curves, paired with matching rings to spice up a boring t-shirt and jeans combo. For something timeless, consider slim bangles that are contemporary yet classic (I know, I know, tough). A statement silver cuff bracelet or silver and pearl bangle can make the perfect addition to your staple little black dress (or in my case little white dress). For a girly night out, jazz up your plain jumpsuit with a fun knotted silver bangle. Speaking about being knotty (naughty) huh. 


Silver has always been the classic jewellery of choice and it looks like this would not change any time soon. Investing in silver jewellery is as logical as buying a Chanel classic flap in Beige. Gosh you know I'm making sense. Can't believe the week is almost gone! I shall finish up the can (2nd can) of beer and work on other projects toasting in my back pocket. Two juicy product reviews coming up. Till then.
 

Review: Botanicals Fresh Care Coriander Shampoo

 

Throwback to when I used to spend almost $30 (approx. RM100) on shampoo and conditioner monthly. In year 2016, my career canon-balled and I set myself a goal to achieve 'mini financial freedom in 5-years time'. Spending RM100 on hair care might not seem much to many but it made sense to save up back then and hair care was first on the chopping board. I knew where I wanted to spend on and I knew where I wanted to be. stopramblingjeez. With that said, I only use hair products that are silicon and paraben free.

What Is It

a botanical concoction of coriander seed, soya and coconut oil. the formula strengthens and REVITALIZES the feel of fragile hair. Infused with a fresh, invigorating aroma. No silicon, No Paraben and No colorants (fabulous!) the packaging is 100% recyclable and Made with 100% recycled plastic.

After using the Botanicals Fresh Care Coriander Shampoo for 5 months now, I am ready to give my humble opinion. First of, I love the scent. A woody undertone which reminds me of free shower gel at a posh spa in Bali. The bottle feels sturdy and is slightly transparent which makes it easy to tell how much product is left. Also, the pump discharges perfect amount for one wash. Product label still looking smart as it initially was. I find labels that look half dissolved aesthetically unpleasing. A+ for the packaging.

At the back, it says "apply on wet hair, lather well before rinsing off with water" so that's what I did (just like every other shampoo). It foams up ever so slightly. Scalp feels 'minty' and clean after every wash. Shampooing has never been more enjoyable. I double cleanse on most days but not recently since Summer in Hunan is toasty and dry. Hair became noticeably drier so I aborted mission and went back to Plan A. My hair has never looked healthier.

Currently running on the 5th month and I still have 1/5 left! I reckon this could last me 6 months. Priced at RM34 essentially breaking down to RM5.70 per month. Bloody good deal. Mummy was a proud parent as I spent RM34 on a bottle of shampoo instead of cashing on a slice of fancy-ass cheesecake. Deeply considering trying different products from this range. Coriander strength potion?! Take my money. Bought mine from Tesco in Bangkok last Christmas. Fellow Malaysians can find it at all pharmacies nationwide.

Disclaimer: This shampoo was paired with Inecto Naturals Coconut Hair Treatment (fabulous product). So it could be the coconut and I'm totally making things up. Good lord.
