Ooh La La with La Senza...

Lot's of women have no idea that wearing the right lingerie is pretty much like wearing your favorite heels. It boost up your confidence level instantly and making you feel sexier inside out without having to bare your flesh =) I know most of you must be thinking; what do someone with close to non existence love life like me know, when the only man who ever tell me my body is wonderland happened to be Mr. John Mayer, LOL Well, I do know a thing or two about confidence. I was born with too much confidence according to my mum, hehe =P


Me and La Senza? We go way back, beginning as lust at first sight, develop into unrequited love stage soon after before moving into forever ever after chapter =) Me and my sisters have been their customers for about 4 years now and I don't think our loyalty will change anytime soon! For you that might be wondering, La Senza is actually a brand originated from Canada, the name might be suggesting an Italian roots which I personally think is a clever marketing strategy on their part @_@ La Senza have been selling sexy and confidence for Malaysian women for almost a decade, a benchmark that's worth celebrating for, wink2 

 
Believe it or not, I never really been to any of La Senza events before!!! It's tragic I know, LOL Imagine my surprise when I read the mysterious email from Tammy, founder of The Butterfly Project (happy dance + ukulele involved, hehe =P) I'm feeling very2 lucky indeed Thank you so much to the wonderful people at La Senza for choosing me and of course to The Butterfly Project who believe in me, this is possibly one of the best party I ever been invited to, weeeeee~ 


Yes girls, yours truly and 19 other butterflies were specially invited to attend the "La Senza - Body Kiss Bloggers Party" last Tuesday at their KLCC outlet, yeay!!! Upon arrival, we were greeted by the super friendly La Senza's team who brief a little on the activities they've lined up for us =) They're really putting a lot of efforts into this party, making me and the other girls more than excited to get the party started, hehe =P


We were introduced to the La Senza's Body Kiss collection, highlight of the night by Cynthia and according to her; Body Kiss, as flirty as its name, comes in 7 colors variant, lace style and prints that were designed specifically for t-shirts and summer tops with their smooth cups and bright hues. It is also built with a cushioned underwire that gives invisibly sexy fit with level 2 push up, perfect amount of push for day to night and the hot plunge cut that accentuate your cleavage =) After tried the Body Kiss myself, I kid you not everything she claimed is definitely true!!! Just give it a try and I'm sure you'll love it


Right after the introduction, we were given a demonstration by Wave on how to measure your bra sizes correctly.  It's quite simple actually when you get the hang of it, the only things you need is a Bra Fit Chart and a measuring tape =) First step, measure your underbust area exactly like the first picture. Next, measure your highest peak (nipples) which will be used to determined your cup size. After that, all you have to do is refer to the chart to get your bra fit size, easy right? I'm not gonna kiss and tell but I do believe that size doesn't matter, so good luck there if you're trying to figure out my size, LOL


In the Bra Fitting activity, we were grouped in pairs to measure each other. I had Illy doing the measuring for me, she's such a hottie and bubbly in person @_@ We laugh a lot of course, I never thought bra fitting can be that fun! There's game too on that day, all of us were asked to look for the hidden lollipops all over the drawers in just 30 seconds and the person who collected the most lollipops will win a 30 seconds shopping spree at La Senza!!! I'm not the lucky winner that day but it's okay because each of us get to bring back home a Body Kiss bra of our choice, yeay~ I'm choosing the leopard print by the way since it's the most fierce of them all, hehe =P



The party didn't end there, we're ushered to The Apartment next for a lovely dinner by the La Senza team The tables were decorate very girlishly with glitters and sequins all over it and each of us get a bunny/mouse headpiece to play with too, hehe =P Me being me of course didn't waste any time to bring out the inner cheeky side of me, LOL We were then served with a 3 courses meal; The Apartment Soup (appetizer), Piquant Cream Grilled Chicken (main course) and last but not least Chocolate Mousse (dessert). I love them all especially the dessert, a sinfully rich fluffy chocolate mousse with strawberry, faint~


There's another surprise waiting for us that day, a goodie bags filled with awesome stuff All of us get a limited edition La Senza calender, a very cute La Senza nail clipper, La Senza glitter pouch, La Senza Sexy Dealer set (complete with poker cards, chips and cute collar =P) and the previously given; La Senza Body Kiss bra and a cute headband.

Breakfast @ Teaffani...

Breakfast at Tiffany's? Wasn't really my cup of tea but "Breakfast at Teaffani" definitely is!!! Although I'm no Holly Golightly, I love everything fancy when it comes to my food, hihi =P Thanks to The Butterfly Project, I was among the lucky bloggers chosen to experience the Teaffani's High Tea food tasting session earlier this month, something that I wouldn't missed for the world, wink2


Located at Fahrenheit88, Teaffani Patisseries who also known as the English High Tea expert, gives you a slightly different atmosphere than cafes you used to see... It's situated literally in the middle of clothing and accessories counters!!! What a cool way to win a shopaholic heart, don't you think? =P While sipping your tea and enjoying your pastries, you can feast your eyes on the various outfits on display, double guilty pleasure for me, heeee~


To make your high tea moment even sweeter, Teaffani serves their customers with the finest English crockery set, fabulous for any occasions =) All the details feel very much like a scene from Downtown Abbey than a cafe to me, haha =D There are tons of premium tea choices to spoil you, from English Breakfast, Peppermint, Chamomile, Earl Grey to Darjeeling, perfect combination with any dessert! I just don't get how a coffee person can live missing the beauty of tea and dessert union? It's like match made in heaven, what's not to love, right? ^_~


Back to Teaffani, we were welcomed that day by the owner herself, the lovely Ms Rachael Ang who brief us a little about the history behind Teaffani; which is the pioneer for mobile high tea service here in Malaysia!!! Catering for numerous big names before, from Rolls Royce, Setia Eco Glade, Reebonz to Robinson (just to name a few), Teaffani is clearly in a class of her own ^_^


Unlike normal high tea promos at hotels and cafes, Teafanni High Tea Set is available throughout the day, yeay!!! @_@ Comes with complimentary tea of your choices and 8 different savoury and sweet delicacies to satisfy your hunger, this 2 pax set is more than enough to accommodate 3 people if you ask me... With only RM49.90, you get 2 types of sandwiches, Tiramisu, raisin scones, carrot cakes, chocolate brownies, orange pudings, chicken quiches and macaroons! You really should come with empty stomach if you want to finish everything, LOL


I'm not a food connoisseur nor an expert, so I think I'll leave the big words for those who really know what they're talking about... I'll highlight on my personal favorite instead, based on my taste buds and preference =) Honestly, I don't drink coffee so Tiramisu wasn't really my kind of dessert, but I'm drawn to it because of the cute little jar that comes with the Tiramisu... The coffee taste is not as strong as I think it'll be, which is always a plus to me! The texture on the other hand is soft and smooth enough for my liking, coolness~ Vn_nV


Next on my list are their chocolate macaroon and chicken quiche. Placed highly on the top tier, these sweet and savory couples definitely are the main highlight of the high tea =) The chicken quiche were cutely served in a tart crust, very chic and delicious finger food that's perfect for kids to adult! The macaroon is another surprise for me, it tasted very much like a fusion of chocolate and orange, not too sweet nor too bland, just the way it's supposed to be, I'm in love ❤_❤


Did I mention about their raisin scones yet? It's a nice twist from the plain one that I normally bought =) I like raisins in pastries, it brings out more flavour without additional sweetener, healthier alternative for me obviously, LOL You can always have it with butter and jam like the English do, wink2 Beside their signature High Tea Set, Teaffani also offers wide array of selection from sandwiches, cakes, finger foods, desserts, cookies and scones freshly bake for their customers at their cafe as well. Pair your pick with their premium tea, you'll feel like living in an European country, hehe =P


Of course an event wouldn't be complete without any group photos, right? Since the girls came clad in a school uniform ala Gossip Girls, everyone was more than excited to showcase their outfit and pose for the camera =) I like the tartan inspired prints they're wearing, very adorable =) My interpretation of the theme however clearly differ from what other girls have in mind so I choose to minimize my camwhore instinct that day, LOL I can't resist taking picture with Ms Rachel though, she's so pretty ❤


The best thing of all, each and everyone of us get to bring back home the delicious Chocolate Rocher biscuits from Teaffani & Lullabelle's bestseller items; Sweet Orange Nail Ointment and Purple Magical Ointment, weeeeeeeeeeee~ For those of you who's unfamiliar with Lullabelle, they're selling variety of natural hand made products from soaps, lipbalms, body scrubs, ointments, herbal balms to facial mists, pretty much every things a girl need in their survival kit, wink2

(credits to Eugene for the pic)

Unlike other normal girls, I happened to be among the rare breed who's unfazed by anything Korean (K-pop, K-drama, Psy, Gwiyomi, you name it~) The only thing about them that really impressed me is their dedication towards beauty. I mean, they don't mind going under the knife or spend thousands for beauty, not everyone willing to go that far you know... Not to mention, their flawless skin and glowing complexion; I would kill to have skin like that, LOL

Force of Nature with Nature Republic...


I never really warm up to the idea of cleansing oil when I first knew about it couple of years ago. Back then, I thought removing makeup using oil based formula will only make my face become oilier than it already is. My perception however changed after I tried Shu Uemura cleansing oil. It cleanse and removes my makeup easily compared to regular makeup remover. Unfortunately, it's way too expensive for a frequent makeup user like me, sigh~


Thanks to Only Beauty and Nature Republic, I've met the perfect alternative to my beauty dilemma; Nature Republic Forest Garden cleansing oil It's a lot cheaper, comes in 5 different types of oils that cater to various skin concern and smells wonderfully awesome! Here's a little info about their cleansing oil range :-

# Tea Tree Cleansing Oil ~ clean and fair skin (RM82.90/200ml)
# Green Tea Cleansing Oil ~ sheer complexion (RM82.90/200ml)
# Chamomile Cleansing Oil ~ extra care for sensitive skin (RM82.90/200ml)
# Olive Cleansing Oil ~ extra moisturing (RM82.90/200ml)
# Argan Cleansing Oil ~ plentiful nourishing to skin (RM82.90/200ml)


As much as Argan and Olive oil intrigued me, my heart instantly fall for Chamomile cleansing oil which is infused with the active ingredient of natural chamomile water to protects sensitive skin from various harmful materials and stress. Besides being mild, fresh and soothing for my skin, the chamomile scents also giving me the spa kind of feeling while removing my makeup, making the whole routine something I really look forward to at the end of the day =)


Did I mention about their packaging yet? They used environmentally friendly paper that is recyclable and printed with soy ink, a greener substitute from the regular petroleum based ink. You can find a braille writing on the packaging as well, a very unique feature that I wish to see more on other products... If only I can interpret the meanings behind it, sigh~
Anyway, a review won't be complete without a little demo don't you think? The artistic side in me finally kicked in, so I channel it into a slightly different surface in a tattoo style font using my blackest waterproof eyeliner from Benefit Cosmetics =) 


(1) From the first picture, you can view my so called "art work" at the back of my hand, not very artsy I'm afraid, LOL 

(2) Next, I applied 2 pumps of Nature Republic Chamomile Cleansing Oil to the area and massage it lightly in a circular motion. 

(3) The color quickly fade away and I only need to swipe a wet tissue to remove the stain completely.

I just love how easily I can remove my waterproof eyeliner with this cleansing oil. It's also gentle enough for my problematic, sensitive skin, yeay!!! Highly recommended to all of you out there who's still looking for the perfect makeup remover Visit your nearest Nature Republic outlets to try it out today and feel the force of nature yourself =) Until we see each other again, Happy Voting Everyone~
