    Althea, represent the beauty of Korea and delivers authentic K-beauty items to the world. If you guys read my previous post about Althea turns 1, then you should know about this beauty website. A lot of beauty junkie love to shop here because you can grab all the Korean skin care and cosmetic without going to Korea. The best part is, the price is reasonable. 

    So, Althea sent me two big pinky box with full of skin care and cosmetic. What I had received from them? Well, continue reading then you can find out. What we have here are Piolang Monster Pack, Elizavecca Hell-pore Clean Up Mask, Piolang CP-1 Protein Clinic (Ceramide Treatment), Velieve Bellamonster Crayon Colour Blender Set and Mamonde Mask.

    Velieve Bellamonster Crayon Colour Blender Set, RM85

    First thing I had received is the crayon colour blender set. It is components of blender and pigment colour - 6EA set. Blender consists of black blender, white blender and lilac blender while Pigment colour includes pigment red, pigment orange, pigment pink. I love how the outcome of applying this. It is vivid colour and long lasting, moist and light and ECOCERT ingredient (it's a mark of French organic cosmetics certification). Love how the jojoba oil and shea butter makes my lips healthy.

    I try to achieve chic pink colour but seem failed. I guess I apply it another way around. Hahaha. Don't follow my mistake, we should apply the pigment colour first then only apply blender. This is my first time to this set so I still have more to discover.

    Piolang CP-1 Protein Clinic (Ceramide Treatment), RM27

    You must be wondering, what is this? It is actually hair treatment. CP-1 shares same injection-alike container in hair salon. We all knew protein is a great nutrition to our hairs. It can prevent split end, keep hair glow for 12 hours, prevention of damaged hair cuticles by hair iron, help on preventing hair damage by hair dye, help on preventing hair damage by UV and so on. It is simple and hygiene. I love how they design with injection-alike container so it is easy to apply on each strand of hair! My current favourite of hair treatment at home now!

    Piolang Monster Pack, RM53

    What a cute name! When I received this box and open it, I can see it comes with powder, activator, bow, spoon and pack brush. So many things in one small box. This mask is to increase elasticity of the skin, nourishing to dry skin, brightening dark skin, cleaning skin waste and dead skin cell. You can know your skin condition according to your skin while applying this mask. If splitting means moisture deficit. On the other hand, uneven texture means elasticity deficit. I tried it and turns out my skin is uneven texture, which means my skin is lack of elasticity. For your info, the activator can be a pack and toner as well. So you can apply it again after remove the mask. The activator smell so good!

    Elizavecca Hell-pore Clean Up Mask, RM42

    Last but not least, the Elizavecca product! If you read my previous post about Elizavecca, then you should heard about this brand. For your info, this hell-pore clean up mask is a liquid type of nose pack to remove blackheads and sebum. It picking all sebum at once moistly. If you have sensitive skin like me, apply it on nose or chin and remember do not apply under your eyes. I tried it on my hand and it seem great. I going to try it on my nose soon to test the result. Hopefully it's helps because I have serious blackheads on my nose.

    Bonjour! You guys knew I always travel to Johor because of my boyfie's hometown. Since last week was a long weekend, he decided to bring my somewhere beautiful. I always said my boyfie don't know how to enjoy high tea which is what girl loves to do. This time, he brought me to The Teavana which is located at Johor Bahru to enjoy high tea with him. 

    A photo posted by SHINI LOLA 钟嘉而 🌻 (@shinilola) on

    I took this photo last week and uploaded to my Instagram. Some of the readers PM m on Facebook asking where is this place. Well, now you know~ Is The Teavana. 

    I discover this place via Instagram. I told boyfie about this cafe and I hope I can pay a visit when next time we go back Johor. I'm not sure whether he will bring me or not because he's not that kind of person who fancy for high tea (I guess most of the guys feel the same) but I'm happy because eventually he bring me here. The cafe is just located right beside the main road so if you're not sure whether you're at the right place, take a look of its big sign as photo shown above.

    Once you enter the cafe, I was shock with the interior design. If you read my previous post about Johor One Day Trip then you should know I'm quite impress with the cafe design in Johor. They are many cafe with outstanding interior which is more standout then cafe in KL! Beside of dine in, they also provides services such as event or any special occasion. If you're interested, feel free to contact them.

    I love every detail of this cafe. Especially they put the sign of their wifi password on every table. I'm not a cheapskate person who always ask for wifi instead of using own mobile data. But for the readers who don't have their own mobile data, it's user-friendly to get the wifi password without asking the waiter / waitress there. It is a good thing right?

    Even the menu also is pink colour and floral theme! I can't wait to check out their menu. I guess their foods must be comes with fancy decoration. At first, I thought want to order their signature dish - 6 types of mini pasta but boyfie feel quite full because we just had our breakfast. At the end we order a single set for high tea.

    They have total 3 types of high tea set menu which are Single set (RM29.90), Couple set (RM55.90) and Signature High Tea set (RM69.90). Each high tea set require 10-20 minutes waiting time.

    When I saw the tea cup design. I feel I like to grab the whole set for myself. So pretty!! Feel definitely a good choice for product shooting. Hmm... maybe I should really grab a few?

    The Teavana is definitely a MUST PLACE for photoshoot. I'm pretty sure you will take a lot of photos here especially if you came with your sisters or girlfriends. Luckily I came here with my boyfie so he is the photographer not me. LOL.

    Finally our tea set is here! The single tea set is served with finger sandwiches, fruits, mini bite pastry, scone, pudding, muffin, macaron and a pot of tea.

    Frankly, I will say with this price, totally worth it! My past few high tea experience at KL, the cost that I spend was 5 times of this price! The fruits are so fresh, they have any variety of the foods. Just a little bit disappointment was be the scone. I quite picky when comes with the scone. It's not the one that I expected. But overall is great.

    Don't forget to take some photos at outside too. It might be suitable for OOTD shot like what I did! I would definitely come back again for next visit to try their other foods! Hope you guys enjoy reading this post. If you would like to high tea at KL, maybe you can refer to My Afternoon Tea experience HERELoves

Over the past 5 years, Mezze Bistro has become KL foodie’s open secret. Time Out KL has consistently voted Mezze Bistro as one of their top 40 choice picks in Kuala Lumpur. The team represents a collaboration of strong management and distinguished baking and culinary skills, set to build a platform to become KL’s premier bakery kitchen, Huckleberry Food & Fare.

    I always saw those delicious food photos on Huckleberry Facebook page. Thus, this time me and my friend Joanne decided to have our gathering at there.

    (Say hi to Joanne)

    Huckleberry Food & Fare @ Plaza Damansara, Damansara Heights

    When we arrived, we saw there are crowd in their restaurant. Maybe that's a weekend. So I strongly suggest you guys come early for your visit if you don't want to queue or wait too long. I love the interior design especially their ceiling. So unique compare to those ordinary cuisine.

    Same as the other western cuisine, they will served you plain water before you plan to order anything. I totally forgot they served us the plain water or self service. Just one of them.

    I forgot what drink ordered by Joanne, I guess might be Iced Latte or some other coffee beverage. She think the drink is fine.

    Green Apple Lemon | RM9.90
    For my drink, I ordered something special - Green Apple Lemon. It is fresh fruit soda infusions which they claimed hand-crafted and slow-pressed fresh daily. I love the taste as I love something sour. Order it if you think you got the same taste as mine.

    Also forgot what Joanne ordered for her meal because she have no idea too. Basically it's homemade bread served with tomato sauce, feta cheese and spinach.

    Finn's Mac & Cheese | RM15.90
    For my dish, I ordered a Finn's Mac & Cheese. It taste good, just the portion is a little small for me. Actually both of us feel the same. The overall rating for environment, foods and services are great. Just the food portion might be a little small for us. Maybe both of us eat too much? HAHAHA!
