VanityTrove/Decleor Aromatic Beauty Workshop

My name card for Decleor Aromatic Event, I may not like my drawing but I love
the Decleor skincare. Seeing the packaging already tempted me so much and I
really enjoy using it during the beauty workshop.

The benefits of Aromatherapy. Now you know why I love Aromatherapy so much, the benefits can really
rejuvenate and invigorate my overall senses to perfection. Although life is not perfect for anyone but I
always try to maximise the potential of using Aromatherapy everyday in fulfilling my life to total happiness
and wellness through daily meditation. It works for me, that's why I'm enjoying it for many years already.

This is the moment I'm always looking forward to explore, the brand Decleor special is the Aromatic Ritual,
with its signature aroma essential oil start before the skincare application.

It has been many years I've tried and using Decleor brand. I always love the brand
and its exclusive treatments, but this time doing it on my own cleansing part to the
massaging the new mask part also I enjoy the whole process of cultivating a whole
new approach to clean, moisturised and radiant skin with Decleor complete regime.

The foam cleanser they prepared for us for double cleansing after using the Cleansing milk that I love so much.
It's soft and nice to smell for cleaner, brighter skin. 

The new creamy Plumping Mask that's beneficial after massaging it for deep hydration and blood circulation. Nice!  

A mask where we need to apply it on, leave it to dry for awhile and massage it till
become oily texture then we can cleanse it with water. Ooh, I love this new mask!

Dana shows it to us the correct way to put on the Aromessence Neroli essential serum on 3 fingers for the
whole face application. You can put more if you want but for me, I think it's enough with the little precious oil.

Decelor brand is one of my favourite brand in skincare because it's simple yet I can achieve the result of
moisturised skin in the most simplest skincare regime with the Hydra Floral of 24 hours moisture cream. 
Decleor is also focusing Hydra Floral BB Creme with SPF 15 for UV protection.

Our satisfied, happy faces after completing the reviving Decleor aromatic ritual. 

The successful Decleor branding with its bright yellow+products display concept. So tempting to buy and try. 

The inviting treatment room with cozy ambience, that's sure to relax my facial/body treatment here. For more

Love it, will go all out for it and will continue on the Decleor journey for beautiful,
youthful skin. Beauty comes from within and it starts with the Aromessence Neroli.
Even by inhaling the exquisite aroma oil, it feels like you're in a trance of fantasy,
totally feeling rejuvenated, invigorated with the 100% pure elixir of lovely beauty.    

Summer Bumper 2013

Last Monday, I was kinda lazy due to the usual Monday blues with so many emails to follow-up but dear Chee Yin from CRES Wellness called me asking where am I? Haha…I told her I’m on my way which is lucky I really made the effort to go for their launch that day. She already emailed me since last May and last week, she actually reminded me to come for the launch again saying it’s been a year already we since last met at the opening in Puchong. And I was like, “Really? Time really flies ha. I’ll do my very best, thanks.”

I was too caught up with my own agendas, I didn’t know where’s the launch gonna be and old liao, kinda slow already. Haha…only on Sunday when I checked on my schedule for this week, only then I remembered the details of the  location I need to go. Now is July month already, still many blogs I have yet to complete for companies and my own business accounts to update for records. I don’t like seeing those backlog sitting on my desk for long as I always wanted my paperwork to be done by that night itself. 

When I was 21 years old working in SCB, I have 5 millions target each month to achieve with piles of paperwork to be filled up(hated this the most), but I make sure I finished it up every night by 8pm before I head for the best Nyonya food at Newtown, PJ State for my dinner. The next morning I would meet up my clients directly from home as to save my time to meet as many clients as possible. That’s how I achieved my 5-9 millions target a month. I make sure my plans worked for me to achieve what I want in life, not the other way round.

One of the top blogger in town approached me last 2 weeks and said, "I promised myself to thank you(Jacinta) personally when I meet you again for supporting my blog". I replied her, "You don't have to. Your blog is really good and it's very important that we should support each other." "Tq, Tq I really appreciates that. I read your blog too. You have your own style of writing your blog." I was so  surprised and said, "Oh really?" Haha...I only managed to laugh as I never really puts high priority for my blog initially. I let nature take its course.  

Haha...I guess the blogging world is getting smaller and smaller now. I told them recently I've missed out many events and many of the companies who send me their latest products introduction also I have yet to reply them esp.the new ones. Only by attending the old ones and some new ones that's convenient to my place already enough, still many blogs I've yet to complete. Sometimes I have that kinda weird mood to write a blog, see mood one.   

Just like Jeyie, a friend who got close to me during our Italy trip has been asking me to post up my Eastern Europe holiday pictures after I was back 2 weeks and I told her, "Haha...coming soon!" We rekindle back our great memories in Italy trip together with Carrie T and her family. I told her, "Yea, such lovely moments we had in Italy like a happy family. Money cannot buy in exchange of the unforgettable holiday we experienced together and we make great efforts to meet each other again, that's for sure!"

I even told her that her dad, who is a doctor came to my seat on Oman Air told both Rambo and I, "Wah Jacinta, I saw you sleeping comfortably like a baby. Good lah!" "Oh really?" Jeyie asked me as she didn't know that her dad came to the back and chat with us. I even told her that I really respect her dad who is a humble and nice friend to be with. He's a good father figure, a good husband and a good friend to talk with. 

And both Jeyie and Rambo totally agreed to that and we have never 'Bai Fun'(egoistic) to anyone in the group besides being helpful to each other in Italy. Good moral and good manners of good integrity values should be cultivated everyday among the family, friends or social networks. We value each other, we respect each other and we support each other in everything we ventured into. No jealousy, no competition and no comparison between anyone of us. That's why we are happy, it radiates from within. No need plastic surgery or fake personality to show that we're naturally happy, 'Sem siu chut lei' (the smiles comes naturally from the heart).

In Italy where the fashion capital revolves around the city with many of the Italians including both men and women wearing branded clothings and pretty makeups, Carrie T and I brought the Malaysian style of fashion to Italy. Carrie T has been asking her hubby Billy to take pictures for us at almost every pit stop as she said she wana take pictures with 'Leng Lui' but I told her, "This is your world my dear, you're the pretty girl here in your 20's. Young and full of life." I'm way too old for all the sweet pose she's able to pose and jump at every corner of Italy. Haha...I'm only able to hug, did the 'peace sign' and double pose with her only.

And everywhere we go, we never failed to take every chance to parade our fashion show(her hubby said that to us) because we're like the twins of loving pretty things and enjoy lovely things, only we both would understand that kinda sentiments. Besides that, we clicked and stayed close to each other almost all the time because she have a good personality I feel comfortable to be with.

She's not just good in doing her makeup but really into sharing her honest life with me truthfully. Whatever plans she have in mind, I fully support her dreams to achieve what she wants in life. To me, she's a lovely mom yet she knows how to enjoy her life the way it should be. That's life I said to her and I really like her as she's real enough. Only good personality can last to succeed in life and not the makeup definitely!

Eastern Europe 2013

Shopping at the heart of Frankfurt city, full of people from around the world and it's long q everywhere.

From Kuala Lumpur hot sunshine of 34 d.c, I reached to Frankfurt the next morning it was 10 d.c, so cold that I gotta take out my Winter Jacket to cover my body from the cold Spring in Germany. Germany is well-known for its cold winter season with icy snowy weather to rainy days all around Germany. Frankfurt was raining that morning but thank God the luxury coach was waiting for us just in front of the airport and when we reached Nuremberg, the rain stopped.

Our local Malaysian tour guide said we're kinda lucky as we got to tour around Nuremberg without the rain falls as according to her, she always gotta use the umbrella she brought from Malaysia as Germany tends to rain every time she's here. At times, it rains a little but it's ok as we get to rest and relax at the mall for lunch and trying out the yummy pizza from Patio-one of the famous restaurant here. I really shop till drop here in Nuremberg.

The ancient church with 500 years old clock that's amazing and amusing all of us,
only happens every one hour of the day. We enjoyed Germany's famous clock from
the making of it to its creativity of performing arts of clocks. One of the best wonders
of Germany, no doubt about it.

I love their yummy chocs, no preservatives confirmed for sure and it's really creamy till melt in your memory, not just in your mouth. I've tried out their McD burger also, not bad and it only cost EUD1. Rambo couldn't believe that it's so cheap when I asked him to pay them because Germany usually have very high standard of living almost everywhere. So chocolates and souvenirs usually cost higher than the other European countries but as long it's yummy, it's totally worth the price that you paid for. 

Haha...From Frankfurt city travel to Prague, from Prague moving to Bratislava today and tomorrow will 'Jau Lan'(rush over) to Hungary. Really tiring, I have been walking for 4 hours all around Praha today but it's worthwhile to see beautiful Prague and meet many friendly people here. Laugh a lot today, So far so good! (My FB status in Prague, Free Wi-fi).

The Praha Old Town with old castle, cathedral and the famous bridge that links to the New Town of Prague. 

Prague is the capital of Czech Republic, founded in the 9th century is also the largest city in its country. It boasts of a long history which is linked intrinsically to the history of Europe with artistic architecture, visible almost everywhere from beautiful bridges to majestic buildings. 

The most attractive tourist destination in Prague is the Prague Castle. Having being the largest ancient castle in the world, it's even registered in the Guinness Book of World Records. Inside the castle, tourists can visit several stunning sights of the palaces and museums, as well as the St. Vitus Cathedral, which is all nearby around the area of old town city.

Full of people, mostly tourists from around the world during Spring Season. This is the best time to come and
that's why we're here with the tour agency who organized 2 trips for Eastern Europe tour in May month only.

The Charles Bridge of Prague is an architectural treat, built over the River Vltava, this bridge is aged about 600 years old. It's built in the Gothic style and is lined with baroque statues of 30 religious figures, regarded by many as one of Europe's most charming and beautiful cities. Prague has become the most popular travel destination in Eastern Europe along with Bratislava and Hungary. Millions of tourists visit the city every year. It took us 4 hours long from Old Town Castle walking to New Town(across the bridge) since early in the morning. 

We had lunch at Hard Rock Cafe since Rambo promised to help his malay friends to get the famous Hard Rock T-shirts for them all along our holiday trips and we enjoyed the beautiful sceneries all around Praha for sure. But he had no idea about Prague's history at all so I reminded him on the World Cup 2010 incident where I bought Czech Republic to win against the country my friend 'Datuk Z' bought who lost to me and gave us a treat at Bubba Gumps at The Curve only then he remembers Czech Republic.

I just woke up from my sleep all along the hours of travel from Prague to Bratislava, very tired that's for sure.

Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia, with a population of about 500,000 people. It’s the country’s largest city in southwestern Slovakia occupying both banks of the Danube River. Bordering Austria and Hungary, it is the only national capital that borders two independent countries. 

I love the architectural designs of the ancient castle on top of the hill, just like the one in Germany but the one in Germany is much more higher and bigger of course. And not to mention the overall buildings around Bratislava. It's in Pink and golden colour, it's kinda rare to see this Pink colour building with such historical story behind the must-visit place here.

The only big 4 star hotel you can find here in Bratislava. The Slovakian Dinner
we had here was not bad with creamy soup, fresh Grilled Fish and yummy dessert.

The history of the city has been strongly influenced by people of different nations and religions like Czech, which they got separated from each other in the year of 1993. Before  that, the two countries was called the CzechoSlovakia. I still remember that but after the tour, I got to learn more interesting stories/history and it's good to know it too. My sis Toto has asked me so many times on the 5 countries I would visit on this trip before I travel to Eastern Europe.

She told me she only knew Austria, Germany and Hungary but not the other two Czech Republic and Slovakia. Haha...can't blame her as she said she never likes History and Geography at all, really no interest to learn it including Rambo himself. They just wana pay and enjoy every happy moments travelling together, esp. to destress and recharged new energy level like a new Energizer Battery. Enjoy to the max is the key word for them!

Hungary is huge with its old castle that's been rebuilt again on the left side of the castle by Hilton Hotel.
A real nice place with captivating views over Buda+Pest(opposite the bridge) city. Kinda relaxing here!   

Hungary is a country situated in the border of Slovakia and Austria to the west, where I visit after the Hungary city tour. The country's capital and largest city is Budapest, the famous city of  Hungary that’s split into two main part on the historical Buda district most famous for its palace complex and the Pest district more on the city side with shopping malls and restaurants. Thats' why I put it as Buda+Pest: Budapest on FB status.

On a romantic Danube River Cruise with Red Wine while enjoying the wondrous places all around Budapest. 

The famous Danube River Cruise, Hungary is famous for the romantic night views here with ship restaurants, night cruise and party along this happening place. But our tour took an evening cruise at 5.30pm, about an hour ride for the spectacular views ever. That's why some prefer Budapest over Prague. But to me, I like both places equally the same share of love as both places are having their own distinctive beauties. 

And both places actually have one common beauty is that their countries owned ancient, beautiful buildings since the 9th century. Just can't describe much about it, even those pictures I shared on my FB never really focused  much on it, you really gotta witness it yourself. I fully recommend Eastern Europe holiday to you if you expect to enjoy an awe-inspiring holiday with your loved ones.

One of the majestic building in Austria, even The Amazing Race show had one of the challenge featured here.

Austria is full of magnificent buildings to visit, not forgetting the famous Schonbrun Palace with the Queen Maria Theresa history who loves Chinese decors so much she actually brought back many of the Chinese arts and decorated her palace with the 'Chinese meets West' kinda concept. It is one of the most beautiful palace built on earth, best kept by the Austrian authority that charged EUD 6.50 for the visit to the palace.

No camera is allowed here, I brought along my ip4 with free wi-fi but I dare not go against the rule by taking any pictures inside the castle although I was so tempted to share it with all of you. It's really beautiful in here, full of exquisite decorations from China and Europe countries. Really impressive and exclusive, simply to fully describe this place. The history story is kinda interesting too, I will share it with you if I can find the time to blog about it. 

Mirabell Gardens, full of blossoming flowers and nicely-sculpted garden. Total freedom to shoot all the 
nice pictures here. It's so hot in Austria but the wind blows real strong till my umbrella can fly like 
a kite, high up in the sky. Haha…not only me, the others as well as I heard them shouted ‘Wow’!

The reason why I chose this Eastern Europe tour mainly because I love watching 'The Sound of Music' and I love singing most of the songs from the movie. I promised myself that I would travel to Austria specially to visit the movie shooting places and I was glad I made it this far just to be here for my favourite movie. When Rambo took pictures for me all around this Von Trapp's house, I was singing along with the tour guide and feeling totally on top of the world. 

After lunch at the Chinese Restaurant that's located at Salzburg Old Town, I did some quick shopping and sight-seeing all around Salzburg. Then, we travel to Innsbruck city which is well known for its Olympic Winter Games and shopping for Swarovski souvenirs. I used to buy many of it but this time, I only bought the limited edition Swarovski fragrance with a pink pouch. Almost the same designs everywhere, so there's really no big deal of it to buy more.

One of the most beautiful castle I have ever seen from afar, close-up and visit. This dangerous bridge is not very
stable actually esp.when the Korean tour members came.Lucky we reached here first for all the nice shots here. 

The fascinating fairytale Neuschwenstein Castle makes us all feel like we're in a fairytale world in a reality world of Germany. Such a wonderful experience and it's for real. I feel so blessed to be here with Rambo as we're both spending really good times with new friends climbing up the high hill after the local bus dropped us at the certain level of height pit stop. It's too high up the mountain area and kinda steep, it can take hours to reach up here if you're walking up here by yourself. 

We're like the new love birds, been lovey-dovey taking our own sweet time snapping many beautiful pictures here. Naturally, we both feel romantically loving in this kinda romantic environment. The fresh crispy air of high mountain surrounding us in tranquil atmosphere. Rambo loves this place, reminded him so much of Jiuzhaigou in China and I felt the same way too. In fact, we're supposed to be travelling to ZhangJiaJie that Spring holiday but we postponed to May but May, China was having the H5N9 virus pulak.  

Fantastic view ever, just like the one we visit in Jiuzhaigou. Clean and serene environment make us feel so
tranquil and transparent like kids here, as there's nothing much to say but feeling overjoyed just to be here.

Such a coincidence, everything happen too fast and I changed the tour to this Eastern Europe. I prefer to travel to China for beautiful scenery but it's kinda lucky this Bavaria Hill in Germany actually fulfilled my expectation of a beautiful holiday destination to be. It's kinda paid up my missed travel to China, or else my heart would be in China but my body is in Europe. Haha...really thank God I enjoyed every moments travelling around 5 countries of Eastern Europe in 9 days. I think this trip is worth every thousands that I paid for after completing my Spring Project in 2013. 

We deserved to have a great holiday to recharge and revived us to better form of motivation to success. My Summer Project is going on already and we're preparing for Autumn Project in next July. The Japanese buyers love to visit Malaysia this year, so I take it as a good sign for 2013. Not only good for us but also for Malaysia as well, as we're bringing the business for Penang, Johor and N.S market provided that they're humble enough and willing to work hard for it. What goes around comes around, you reap what you sow at the end of the day.

Swiss line Aqua-Vitale Serum 24

Swiss line Force Vitale Aqua-Vitale Serum 24 RM538, love it to the max!

Thank you Swiss line, I love you so much. Once again the true blue bottle of Force Vitale Aqua-Vitale Serum 24 is easy to use and it pumps sufficient serum for me to use it daily morning and evening. Not only the refreshing smell invigorates my smell sense to perfection, it actually hydrates my skin moisturised enough to last throughout the hot, sunny day. 

Just after massaging the serum in 3 rounds of dabbing evenly all over my face, the serum actually absorbed deeply into my skin instantly. No residue left and no sticky feeling at all, that's what really motivates me to use it everyday. I need no alarm calling to remind me that as I'm actually looking forward to smell it and it actually provide sufficient moisture for my dehydrated skin. 

The light aqua serum that's fully absorbed into my skin instantly and it
really smells heavenly refreshing.

My skin is also glowing with hydration shine that looks healthily shiny, not oily shine but radiant shiny. I used to have very dry and dull skin outlook esp. in the afternoon when the sun shines like a flaming BBQ 34-37 degree celcius in my country Malaysia. Now, I only need to apply the Swiss line Force Vitale Aqua Serum 24 and finish it off with SPF 50, away from the sun. I feel totally confident with it as it keeps my skin cool, smooth, healthy shiny and hydrated all day long. 

It's my must-have serum of the day now, love it today till tomorrow! I send my review to Swiss line HQ in Switzerland through email and they thanked me for the review, but in actual of fact I should be thankful to them for giving me this great moisture serum to keep my skin hydrated. It's like a ray of hope to me everyday when I wakes up, I can see a happy, smooth face without the wrinkles and it certainly works for me. Bravo Swiss line!

VanityTrove/ 'Astalift, The Power of Red'

Here I am, I'm ready for 'Astalift, The Power of Red'. The day before I told Winnie
 when she invited me for this Astalift experience, I said "I'll do my best" because
I was afraid of the terrible traffic jam nowadays I may U-turn back home anytime.

After the skin analysis, we start on the cleansing ritual part with Astalift rejuvenating products that's rich
with Astaxanthin ingredients, powered by their proprietary technology from Japan.

The star product of Astalift - Jelly Aquarysta that's orange in colour, full of Astaxanthin ingredient. It's their
No.1 anti-ageing phenomenon in Japan, enhanced with nano-Lycopene and brimming with the world's smallest
skin nourishing ceramide particles for stronger defence against skin-damaging singlet oxygen and free radicals.
Inspired by skin cell research, our skin feels supple, moisturised and visibly youthful after using it. 

Shuet Yee is the lovely beauty consultant who did the mini facial for me and I
really love her magical touch on me esp. the point massage for better blood
circulation and penetration for skincare absorption. So relaxing and rejuvenating! 

The famous  Japanese lotion mask fully absorbed with whitening lotion(my choice)
that's not only cooling and soothing my skin plus the nice scent of Damask Rose,
esp.the Jelly Aquarysta that's working deeper into the dermis layer of skin, it actually
enhanced my skin glowing with healthy shine of youthful looking skin. I told her I can feel
it's working deep into my skin and she told me it's all because of the Jelly Aquarysta effect.

After the mask, Shuet Yee also applied Whitening Essence for me as I prefer whitening care to be my primary
concern during the day time. It's also in Orange colour instead of the normal white colour as it's also added
with Astaxanthin goodness. It smells good too.

The Astalift Light Analyzing Moisture Foundation, liquid type with SPF 25 PA+++.
I told them I wanted a light makeup, natural kinda look. I'm satisfied at the end result.

My hairstyle session after the makeup session. Again, I wanted the most simplest hairstyle look for my
makeover session. Jane, who did the skin analysis for me said I look 10 years younger compared to the
look I came before the facial and makeup. Haha...In my dreams, but I really enjoyed the pampering facial. 

Astalift is generous enough  with the goody bag prepared for us the 3 bloggers, the signature Astalift
Trial Kit worth RM160 plus the golden satin pouch bag. I was kinda surprised to receive the great gifts!

Every purchase of Astalift product worth RM150, you can try out the mini facial I shared as above. Try it,
you'll love it!

I'm really excited to try on the whole Astalift skincare experience, esp. the cute
Jelly Aquarysta before I can share it with you. Just give me 2 weeks to review it.

The new Astalift branch in BSC, Bangsar Shopping Centre Level 2. Love the overall Red decors and
its inviting showroom with a private room for facial pampering. To find out more about Astalift, check
out and  

It's been a long time I didn't go for free makeover or PWP makeover as I was kinda
lazy to go for all the pretty workshops. Mainly, focus my time for my dear Charmers
(3 gals performances and activities) every weekend. Haha...I was glad I really made it
this time for Astalift makeover, thanks to VanityTrove and Astalift for the wonderful,
beautiful experience. You both make me feel brand new again, young and happy
again that's for sure. For more beauty tips on VanityTrove Malaysia, check out
