My First Lookbook ~ LeBelle 18 Boutique



After a month wait finally, I am able to create my lookbook. What is a lookbook? Many asked.

I was only able to answer, "It's just me wearing a stunning outfit and posing like as if I am a Victoria Secret model".


At least that's how I wish it to be. LOL!! A lookbook is a set of photographs displaying a fashion designer's new collection, assembled for marketing purposes.

Many asked where I shop since I have a very small frame. Petite, I call it. To be honest Korean fashion suits my body and I also can fit in H&M and Cotton On's S size.

There are certain brands which are a no-no for me. Their S is an XL for me. I hope they won't read this.


Here I have picked two lovely dresses from LeBelle 18 Boutique an online shop.

 LeBelle 18 Boutique has a very classy collection and though some are pre-order you really don't have to wait for a month plus to get your orders.


The one I am wearing here is called as Korea V Neck Slim Fit Dress. As you can see my figure is screaming out loud naturally. To be honest you can't see my figure when I wear other slim fits.

The way the dress is being put together and the way it wraps around my body naturally shows my body shape without me making any extra effort.


I am an Indian and I don't want my parents to chase me from my house so I clipped the V neck so I will not be revealing anything precious to the world.

You can see how low the V cut neck truly is in the link Korea V Neck Slim Fit Dress.

The dress is rather decent and the cut at the end spices it up and makes the entire dress to be a great evening dress to any function.


The material is polyester and I am not a fan of polyester but this design is not something I like to miss just because it is a polyester. You have to handle this dress extra careful.

It comes in different sizes but only in one colour. The price of this dress is RM 83.00.


If you would love to purchase this then click Korea V Neck Slim Fit Dress and if you want to check for more varieties then head to LeBelle 18 Boutique!

Swiss Vita Cleansing Oil ~ 4 in 1 Makeup Remover Review!


I personally have not seen or used an oil Makeup Remover.

Swiss Vita Extra Hydroactive Cleansing Oil works as a makeup remover where it removes all the stubborn makeup from the face. It contains Moringa Oleifera Seed Oil where it gently takes of the dirt from the face. Watch my video to see how well it removed my eyeliner.

Swiss Vita Extra Hydroactive Cleansing Oil works as a skin care as well as it contains ingredients like Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract, Olea Europaea (Olive) fruit oil, and Ac-11 a type of leave. 

Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract works to prevent the adhesion of dirt, Olea Europaea (Olive) fruit oil restores the skin elasticity and Ac-11 repairs the skin.

Not only that, Swiss Vita Extra Hydroactive Cleansing Oil also contains Macadamia Ternifolia seed oil, Crambe Abyssinica, Orbignya Oleifera seed oil. These ingredients enhance the shine on the face and moistures the skin.



The best part with Swiss Vita Extra Hydroactive Cleansing Oil is it is safe for all types of skins! It has non-artificial pigments, paraben free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free and non-greasy. 

Personally, I find it easy to use this Makeup Remover. I just apply 3 pumps on my face and I will gently massage the face so the makeup and dirt will dissolve.

It transforms into a fine emulsion when contact with water to preserve skin's natural hydration. Next, I will remove the oil using a towel. Then I will use my favourite cleanser to wash off the remaining residue.

Once you're done you will not feel your skin being oily or whatsoever/ It feels fresh and all clean. 

Right now it is being sold for RM100.00!

Also, watch my video to see how effectively this makeup remover works.

The Kid From Big Apple 2 ~ Movie Review



They did give us a heads up that it is a heartwarming movie but literally every scene stole my heart away.

If you want to cry your heart out then it is a must to watch "The Kid From The Big Apple 2"

 Please don't compare The Kid From Big Apple 1 and 2. It's completely a different story!

The Kid From Big Apple 2 is about the Grandpa having dementia and how the family is accepting it.

So yeah, that's all about it but every single scene will make you cringe and make you cry. It was tough to watch this movie with a strong heart.

Most of the scenes are relatable to our daily life and they showed true life as realistic as possible. It is not a fantasy that you want to live in.


The Kid From The Big Apple 2 ~ It is a bitter truth that you may have to face at one point in your life



Got Natural and Organic Products from Signature Market!


So I was searching for organic products from the supermarket and I find it to be a little pricey. *Boom Facebook showed me an ad from Signature Market saying that they have SALES! *My weakness!


California Walnut Natural

I went all out and purchased all the nuts that I was dying to try. I love roasted almond, hazelnut and walnut.


Hazel nut raw

Of course, I purchased all of this as fresh nuts and also in a big amount so I can roast and eat it whenever I want.

I was looking at their website and they do not only sell raw nuts and seeds. They have lots of categories.

Black Pepper Almond with Cheese 

I purchased Black Pepper Almond with Cheese just to try it. As the name suggests it was different and now it is one of my favourites! It was salty and the pepper added a taste. It wasn't as spicy as expected.


Lemon Walnut Almond Cruncher

Lemon Walnut Almond Cruncher had a strong lemon taste where it was sour and sweet. It was a good blend of berries and nuts. It became another favourite of mine.

COCO Disney Pixar Premier Show


Was invited to COCO Disney Pixar Premier Show. Boy! The ending got me so bad that I was crying non-stop. *Even after I reached home (was extremely touched by the ending)

Coco is a heartwarming story about the importance of family. The story setting is Mexican based so I was travelling in a totally different world and I was exposed to a new tradition of Mexico's DIA DE LOS MUERTOS.

Since it is Mexican based so they have the accent when they talk English. That made the movie so much more fun and cute to watch.

The songs made me shake while I was at the cinema as the Mexican's really do have a good beat which will make you dance. Especially the Un Poco Loco!!

Coco is about how a future shoemaker is trying to change his future to be a musician by fighting with his ancestor (No kidding!) He legit goes to the afterworld and fights with his ancestors to be a musician. How and why is for you to find out!

Watch the teaser here: 






C Square Paracord Bracelet Review


As much I love accessories I prefer something which I can grab and wear along the way while I am trying to catch the GRAB. (Cause I am always late)

Paracord bracelet is a cool and stylish bracelet which will not take much of your time to wear it. Usually, bracelets come with a complex lock which can't be easily locked using one hand.



Paracord bracelet from C Square is different. They use nylon material and even their gold in colour buckle looks so cool that it enhances the look of the bracelet.

I chose two colours for me. One is navy blue mix with black and also another in maroon colour.



Both go well with my daily outfit so I am sort of using it daily and it became a must-have item for me. LOL! 



The best part with CSquare is you can get each and every item customised to your hand size. So I don't have to worry about the bracelet being in a size which doesn't fit me.

You can also get very creative and mix match like how I mixed navy blue with black. Having fun choosing your favourite!



They are selling single colour bracelet for RM 45.00, mix colour bracelet for RM60.00 and Tsum Tsum series for RM 50.00.

Collagen and Why You Need it! ~ Brands Innershine


What is Collagen

1. The most abundant source of protein in human body 
2. A large network of extracellular matrix proteins
3. Provides strength and flexibility
4. Abundant in bone, cartilage, tendons, ligaments blood vessels and skin


About Fish Collagen

1. Rich in Type 1 (skin, tendons bones, vital organs and blood vessels) collagen that our body needs
2.  Maintain the strength and flexibility of skin, ligaments, joints, bones, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, gums, eyes, nails, and hair.

Functions and Benefits of Fish Collagen

1. Anti-aging
2. Anti-bacterial abilities
3. Wound healing

5. Increases protein intake


Did you know that collagen decreases in your 20s? In your 40s it decreases about 25%, in your 60s it decreases about 50% and in your 80s it decreases about 75%!

To avoid this from happening you can always outsource collagen and take it as your daily supplement.

Collagens are mostly extracted from marine sources so it has a fishy taste but now Brands Inner Shine has come up with Marine Collagen with Kyoho Grape jelly Strip! 


The Kyoho Grape comes all the way from Japan. Brands Innershine Marine Collagen has a fruitful taste and it comes in a READY TO EAT  jelly form! 

It is now out on the market for RM75.00. Tried mine and I am totally loving it as it feels more like a treat to me rather than taking a supplement cause it is in a jelly form which has a grape taste. 








I Love Coffee & Tea Expo, Midvalley


I am a PROUD COFFEE AND GREEN TEA ADDICT! So when I hear Coffee & Tea Expo is taking place I went crazy!!! There were lots of brands who gave out free samples at their booth.

I chose to introduce 10 booths where their brands are either well established or it is a very promising new brand which you coffee lovers and tea lovers should know about!

3. Mr K Penang White Coffee

This brand is definitely close to my heart as I am from Penang.  They have been supplying to Penang Airport and hotels in Langkawi. The white coffee was so good and it held the Penang's authentic White Coffee taste that I'm sure it will soon be supplied all around Malaysia. They have started to supply BTW! P.S They also have Cappuccino and black coffee.

For more information, you can check their website Mr K Penang White Coffee


4. The Herding Day by Verve Stuff

The packaging of this product will make their product to be categorised a level higher compared to all of the conventional coffee and tea you have seen. At least that's what I thought when I first saw it. Why? It comes in a ready to brew bag.

5. TRU BRU Coffee Co.

This brand impressed me as it is run by 3 youngsters who are still STUDYING! Impressive right? The packaging of course attention stealing as it looks vintage. I kept the bottle as a collection as it was so beautiful that I don't even want to throw it. They serve only two types of Cold Brew coffee which is black coffee and latte.

For more information, you can check their facebook page  TRU BRU Coffee Co.


6. 1 Motea

As the name suggests, would you like one more tea as in 1 Motea? Okay kidding. 1 Motea is a Ginseng Oolong Tea.  The brewed tea is amber in colour with an amazing orchid aroma. It has thick and strong taste, with a sweet and complex aftertaste.

For more information, you can check their website 1 Motea  and their facebook page 1 Motea


7. Rhymba Hills

Guess the name gave you the picture. It is tea! Rhymba Hills tea are well known cause they have no sugar or caffeine added to the tea. So to those who can't take caffeine and prefers to drink tea then Rhymba Hills Tea is definitely a perfect choice. The ingredients like Ceylon Cinnamon, Tumeric and Roselle are 100% natural.

9. O.yu.fish

This is definitely out of topic as I am no longer going to talk about coffee or tea. I am back to talking about what I am good at, FOOD! For the first time I tried salted egg fish and I went all awe. It was a perfect snack if you don't like the conventional snacks like chips. The taste of sweet, salty and spiciness from the curry leaves made this snack to be a must try snack!

Hornbill Restaurant, KL Bird Park Review ~ Tranquility!


This time around Foodlifecious planned to make an adventurous trip where we can eat while watching the bird flying very closeby to us. No kidding!



It was one exciting food trip to see all those exotic birds just chilling around us. Of course, we shall not forget about the greenery part.

I can't recall when was the last time I had my meal in a real forest looking place. Definitely, a good place to go to with your date or friends. It was so calming to watch all the greenery and the birds.

It is rather easy to spot this place as it just right next to where you get your tickets to enter the KL Bird Park. So you can actually go around the KL Birdpark and also drop by this place right after.



The interior of this place is rather soothing and calming maybe because of it is made of wood and also the yellow and warm lighting.

Just the right setting you need when you want to take a break from stressful city life.

I will first list out my favourite food from Hornbill Restaurant which will go under YOU GOTTA TRY THIS category. Hehehe. It was that good actually.

Keropok Lekor
(Malaysian fish finger) (RM5.90)

Fried Mee 'Mamak' Style
stir fried yellow mee with beancurds, eggs, chickens, seafoods & potatoes in tomato & dark soya sauce (RM17.90)

Nasi Dagang
Glutinous reddish brown speckled rice served with tuna fish curry & sliced vegetables (RM19.90)

Sarawak Laksa
rice vermicelli served in coconut curry broth together with shredded chicken, prawns, fresh coriander, beansprout, lime and homemade belachan chili on the side (RM19.90)

Chicken Chop
grilled chicken chop served with black pepper sauce, sauteed vegetables & wedges (RM29.90)

There also other dishes that you can try. The presentation of the food was rather decent and it's obvious that the chef gave food presentation an extra attention.

Penang Char Kuey Teow
stir fried kuey teow with chicken, prawns, eggs, bean sprouts & Chives (RM16.90)

Pisang Goreng 
(fried banana) (RM5.90)

Choice of:

vegetarian (RM20.90)

Malaysian Chicken Curry
(serves with a plate of steamed rice) 
spicy chicken curry served with white rice  & papadam (indian crackers)RM19.10

When it comes to drinks you can choose fruit juice and it comes real fresh like mine is a carrot juice. Worry not! They also have a lot of options.


 The warm looking classy interior won my heart and also the customer service is really good that every need of ours on the table was looked after.




Overall, I will definitely choose this place to chill right after a stressful day.
