Product Review: SimplySiti Clear Solution Charcoal Cleanser

Happy Tuesday!

To be honest, (yes, this time I am NOT lying *peace*) I wanted to blog about a month ago but decided not to cause of my recent not-so-great-skin condition.

My event - HALFEST was quite different to the other event we organise. During HALFEST we invited local celebrities to grace our event in order to build up the hype and attract more people to our event. We invited local celebrities such as Vanidah Imran (my favourite!), Aaron Aziz (ehem,ehem), legendary Sheila Majid, Awie, M.Nasir, Francessca Peters, Ziana Zain and many more.

So, one of these famous people was Dato' Siti Nurhaliza and boy, was I in awe with her. She's so pretty, I must say she's really slim in real life and on top of that; very, very friendly. I fell in love with her instantly. I wasn't really a fan before, but now I'm goo-goo-ga-ga-ing over her!

Man, I'm easily drowned in all the power of charisma and fame. I know right, SUCKER! T__T

Bedazzled...I gave in and finally bought my first SimplySiti product. I know right, HOPELESS SUCKER!! T____T


To be safe, I bought the SimplySiti Clear Solution Charcoal Cleanser. I thought hey, a cleanser wouldn't do as much harm as a moisturiser/lotion/cream etc. right?

Nope. I was WRONG!

In my defense I'm not trying to bring Siti Nurhaliza's products down. After all she is one of our valued exhibitor. I believe her products have made a lot of ladies happy. (I know, triple SUCKER!!! Can't help it...she's really nice O.O and I like her, OK!)

But unfortunately for me, it didn't really do its job. Maybe I am allergic to charcoal, kan? 
*cricket sounds*

(Sejak bila pun entahlah. God woman! Stop making stupid excuses. Honest review...you promised honest review to your readers!)

Ok, yeah...the SimplySiti Charcoal Cleanser gave me these! (warning: gross picture ahead)

I really want to love it. So badly that I tried and...I was really forcing myself to believe that the Siti Nurhaliza cleanser didn't gave me these bumps. But, who am I kidding. My daily beauty regime is the same and the only thing which was different was the cleanser.

Muka excited tak boleh blah!


I'm sorry Siti Nurhaliza *puppy eyes* I guess, we were not meant to be together....
(ok, drama giler!)

And FYI, those bumps are ridiculously hard to get rid off. I'm back to my good 'ol Hada Labo beauty regime and those bumps are still there! Heaven sake it's been a month already. Pfftt.....

So, have you tried any of SimplySiti's product?
Do share *winks*

Till then, good luck & stay flawless...

Sharing is Caring: My New Elliptical

You know you've gained pounds and pounds of kgs when the people closest to you has to whisper it in your ear (cause you're in denial) that you  look ermm well, different in a bad way. o_O


Yes, I am in denial, no scratch that....I am NOT in denial. I acknowledged the fact that I have...well, 'changed'. But I kept telling myself that "I can always go back to my original size anytime. Hmph!". And I forgot to include age factor into the whole equation. Hah!

Yes, it's true...the 'wiser' you get, the harder it is for you to shed those love handles. In fact, I'm sad to report that it takes you double, no triple the effort if YOUR MARRIED!!!! Aaahh...the downside of being happy. Sheesshhh...

So, for my 2nd year Wedding Anniversary. Instead of asking for my typical presents i.e. handbags, shoes, vacation; (things that I wouldn't spend my money on hence makeup is not in the list), I made up my mind that I wanted an Elliptical machine as my anniversary present.

Oh, and I also got this White Toshiba notebook <3 Thanks, sayang :)

On the other hand.

*Sobs* Sobs *
Goodbye, my Lambskin Chanel...T__T
AHAHAHAHAHAHA....as if!!! (=.=')

But I'm pretty proud of myself. At least, this time...I placed necessity above wants :)
And, I sure as hell can tell you it ain't easy for me. It was like having a civil war...Liyana vs Liyana T_T

So, about two weeks ago...my Elliptical or some may call it a Cross Trainer, arrived! Weeeeee~!

(Baby talk) I'm so gonna love you, yes I do. I'm so gonna ride you everyday.
And use you and abuse you...muahahaha!

Ok, I dunno why this picture is senget

I was so excited I called Nas (my husband) to tell him that the Elliptical has arrived. And guess what was his response to me; "Oh ok, that's good. So bila nak start?". *Gasp* Do I hear a mockery?? Is that a challenge? Grrrrr....that IS a challenge???!!!

I say, "Bring it on sayang..."*squinting my eyes and blows off my fringe*
I'm so gonna win.
(Yes, as you can see...I AM a bit of a kiasu!)

Why am I telling you this?
Cause I'm a big believer that beauty also comes from within.

Sure you have the look, the brain, the superb make up and hairstyle...but you're not complete untill you truly have the 'BODY' and the right attitude to go with it, no?
I mean, who you're kidding...everybody tries their best to be perfect, right?
And that includes yours truly.

However, I will still hold on dearly to my mantra...
"Gemuk boleh kurus, tapi kalau cun tetap cun. So read between the line honey, hmph~!"
*Raise eyebrow*

Muahahahahahahahahaha....I know, I'm mean!

So, on and off I will write an update on how everything is going with my workout etc etc.
Hopefully, a few months down the road...I can look back at today's entry and smile cause by then I'l be donning a super-HOT bodyyyy! yeah!


Till then, good luck & stay flawless...

I Know, I Owe You LOADS!

Hi there,

How was your weekend?
Mine was super busy with a number of weddings to attend. Thanks to the super-famous date to get hitched -  11.11.11 ! Some even waited till 11.11pm. Yeap, that's right...11pm at night. Poor Tok Kadi ;)

A lot of things happened to me for the past 3 months.
If you notice, I would go missing in action for 3 months and this year I went MIA twice!
I tried my best to blog religiously, however due to my work overload (from my day-job), I'm not proud to admit that I waved the white flag of defeat!

If you have been following me at my other blog; Mariellasays you'd notice that I made a post inviting readers to a trade fair - the Malaysia International Halal Showcase (MIHAS) organised annually by my company. You can read more on MIHAS here. 

This year, my CEO moved the game up a notch and we organised the inaugural Halal expo for consumers called HALFEST. You can read more here. What does this mean? I have a back-to-back gigantic event to organise and managing advertising & promotions as well as the public relations aspect was super-duper crazy!

We spent 1 year to prepare and organise MIHAS successfully, now two mega events in a year!!!! I better be looking forward to an enormous increment and a nice big-fat cheque as my bonus this year! Hell yeah...I know I deserve it!

So, ladies....
Forgive me. *bats eyelashes*


Pretty please with Chanel lipstick on top?
No? You sure?

Ahhh...I knew it, no one can resist a good Chanel lipstick

*hugs & kisses*

Till then, good luck & stay flawless...
