January Beauty & Fashion Picks

Saturday, January 10, 2015

I realized that I have done a lot of Etsy picks (too many pretty things!), so here are some non-Etsy items that my Malaysian readers can buy and ship within Malaysia, or just go to the store.

For January's beauty picks, it is all about the eyes! Nothing beats starting the year off with bright and healthy-looking eyes. And for the fashion picks, we are talking shoes and hardy ones too. You know how we always like to start a new year with something new and snazzy? These are the perfect back-to-school (or back-to-work, in my case) shoes.

Metallic leather, shaped into a moto-inspired pair of boots. If these ain't snazzy, I don't know what is. These boots look like regular high-top sneakers, except that it comes with a warm-lining on the insoles to keep feet warm and toasty. Not only it boasts a futuristic look, it has a practical zipper on the side for easy-on and off. Fashion trend for 2015? Me thinks so. Retails at RM789.

The product to cool, soothen and brighten eyes. As presented in this delightful clip of the beautiful Olivia Palermo, the eyes have the power to say it all – no words needed. Therefore, a product which not only contains La Mer's signature Miracle Broth, but also some pretty unique essences of light-bending sea pearls; you can be assured of brighter and younger looking eyes. Ever heard of the term 'eyes that sparkle'? Sparkle you shall. Retails at RM520 per 15ml.

Question, who here honestly likes fake lashes, raise your hands? No one? I thought so. I despise fake lashes – they are uncomfortable to wear and hard to put on (I have zero expertise). What if I told you, you won't need falsies, mascara or  lash extensions to have beautiful eyelashes? Sounds too good to be true? Believe it. Nutraluxe Lash MD lash serum (it's clear liquid) comes in a mascara-like applicator, where you apply onto your lashes daily – and within weeks you can see improvement on your lashes: thickness and length. Retails at RM280, exclusively at luxelashshop.com

Fans of Nike, raise your hands! *raise hands* Since the conception of the Nike Air technology in 1979 by Tinker Hatfield, the Nike Air collection have been in trend for 3 decades – and the family has expanded to include new and exciting innovations like the Air Max 1 Ultra Moire. This 2015 model features a completely new and fresh silhouette and exterior. Doesn't it look sleek? The shoe uses less material now, resulting in improved flexibility and reduced weight. Retails at $130 on the Nike store, coming soon to Malaysia.

I hope you enjoyed this little round-up. Like to see more? Let me know!
