Bag of the Month: Herschel Rad Cars Backpack

Nothing says about Penang Island like a sunny day at the park (or beach), and I fell in love with this classic backpack at Bratpack, Queensbay Mall with an old-school California flavour, which only further radiates the summer vibes.

After all, it's summer all year long in Malaysia *wink*

I must say, the business marriage between Herschel Supply Co. and Kevin Butler delivered yet another set of perfect summer-beach collection with Butler's Rad Car with Rad Surfboards on them. The orange backpack simply pops and I don't have to say "Hey, LOOK AT ME!" - the backpack does it for me. (Yup, I'm that vain. Do you have a problem with that?)

Anyway, if you want the unspoken attention (like me!), shop this collection over at Bratpack Queensbay Mall.

While you're there, you might want to take advantage of "The BIG Bratpack Sale" and get additional 10% OFF for purchase of 3 or more sale items in a single receipt from now until 16 September 2014.

Don't say I didn't spill! Now please excuse me while I go on a shopping spree.

ELLE-legant and On Trend

You've seen this face all over Queensbay Mall, and this shopaholic is stopping at nothing to bag all the amazing shopping here.

Jacket and top from ELLE;
shorts from Springfield

Some of you have asked whether that is me on the newsletter, posters, banners and so on. Well, to be honest with you... I have to admit that I’m not busting my identity. At least, not yet.

The point of this post is really not to expose who I am, but to reveal the unfailingly chic ELLE collection this season. Because cool and warm shades are creating a wave into ELLE store at Queensbay Mall – marrying smart and casual in perfect harmony.

If fashion week makes your knees weak, here’s a four-day Fashion In Fusion Showcase if you’re in the island this weekend for Hari Raya holiday. QueensbayMall is orchestrating an extraordinary score of interactive 3D projection animations to celebrate fashion and art.

This talk-of-the-season showcase that features global fashion brands will run from 26 until 29 July 2014 from 2.00pm-4.30pm daily on GF South Zone, Queensbay Mall.

ELLE is scheduled to take the runway on 29 July 2014 at 2.00pm, and you can expect to be charmed by a fusion of distressed jeans, a touch of chambray and a pop of pattern will definitely up your style ante. The brand is also introducing warm tones in earthy shades like orange, mustard, taupe and camel that will add a glow to your modern Raya look.

ELLE's latest collection

If you fall in love with the looks on the runway, this is the season to grab 'em with discount up to 50% from now until 1 September 2014. 
Mark your calendar this weekend, and see you there!

A trip of a lifetime to Istanbul

If you’re a James Bond fan, Istanbul would have rung a bell... and perhaps tickle your fancy to actually visit the film location! Well, I for sure would be thrilled to walk the paths where Daniel Craig had been or breathe in the air where he had been *big-time celebrity crush* And maybe, I may smell the last trails of his scent left in Istanbul...

James Bond movie "Skyfall" was filmed partly in Istanbul, Turkey

Oh, my point is this: get your shopping spree going this 1Malaysia Mega Sale Carnival from now until 1 September 2014 because Queensbay Mall is running a fanta-bulous contest to send you and your partner on a 6D5N all-expense-paid holiday to Istanbul, Turkey including private tours to Camlica Hill, Golden Horn, Blue Mosque, Spice Market, Grand Bazaar (where the first major chase scene in "Skyfall" was filmed) and other attraction spots.

With RM100 spent during the contest period, you’ll be entitled to one entry into the contest. If you shop with your OCBC Credit Card, you’ll increase your chance of winning with FIVE entries.

And there’s more! Other fabulous prizes up for grabs include a holiday to Bali for two, a 60 inch LED TV, 2 units of Apple iPad Mini and 5 units of Bonia pouch.

More reasons to shop at Queensbay Mall
with over RM49,000 worth of total prizes to be won

Exposing Victoria's Secret in Queensbay Mall

Truth is fans of the renowned sexy American brand are finally getting a piece of Victoria’s Secret as the femme fatale brand extends its doors to Penang.

To cut the lace, I mean chase! Victoria’s Secret undressed its latest outlet in Queensbay Mall last month, flashing a notable collection of its bestselling products.

Blazer up in colours

With the Spring/Summer collection hitting retails and window displays, I'm pretty definite that blazers in different colours are becoming quite a must-have these days.

I find these blazers in camel brown and royal blue from G2000 will make quite a statement, and they can be paired with almost anything in my closet.

Blazers from G2000, Queensbay Mall

Don't you think they're pretty versatile to dress up for business or dress down for a chic weekend?

Biker chic is a total game-changer

As Formula 1 heats up the tracks and shoppers anticipating the launch of GP Sales, what can epitomise cool for this season more than a biker jacket! Right?

Oh, and did you know the 2014 Formula 1 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix Roadshow will be held in Queensbay Mall from 27 February until 2 March 2014! *excited*

Coming back to the classic biker jacket – it is an uber chic fashion statement that doesn't go out of style. In fact, they look even better with age. And here’s another great news – a women’s biker jacket is surprising versatile that you can style out any outfit.

Go for the full rock chick look with skinny black jeans and worn-out t-shirt *roar*, or toughen up a minidress with a coloured biker jacket *meow*.

Biker jackets have been around for as long as I can remember and if you haven’t got one, check out what I've hunted around Queensbay Mall – just for you. I mean, come on, a biker’s jacket is a must-have in your wardrobe (especially this new F1 season)!

Ready or not, Valentine's Day is this Friday

Like a very sensible girl, I want to tell the world that I don't care about Valentine's Day and all that I care is sleeping in, wearing my hot sweat pants.

But the painful truth is that... if I don't get a date or a gift on Friday, I'll be devastated. Yes, even for the singles (like me), we appreciate the thought be being remembered. After all, it's the thought that counts.

Here are some pretty lovely ideas of what you can do on 14 Feb!

1.  Roses and chocolates.
Save a few bucks (for dinner, perhaps?), wear matching outfits and stand a chance to receive a stalk of rose and chocolate (absolutely free) from the Little Cupids roaming in Queensbay Mall. 

2.  Serenade your girl.
Not everyone is blessed with an angel's voice - celebrate the special day against romantic live music backdrop at Queensbay Mall, GF Central Atrium at 1pm, and at 6pm dedicate a love song to your loved one from the selected song list.

3.  Go on gift-hunting, together. 
  • Fashion Fast Forward members, enjoy up to 50% off at Burton Menswear London, Dorothy Perkins, Topman and Topshop.
  • Now you can share your love for denim with your loved ones - 2nd pair of Gap denim at RM99 only.
  • One for you, and one for her/him because you'll get 20% off with purchase of 2 or more SODA normal-priced items at Voir Gallery
  • Pick out your favourite Crabtree & Evelyn's toiletry gift sets, beautifully packed for him and her.
  • If you're planning for the big proposal, find the perfect infinity band at Diamond & Platinum.

4.  Fill her heart, fill his tummy. 
  • Let your love hog the limelight at Morganfield's, with a chance to be among the 5 lucky diners to win a pair of Citrine gemstone worth RM300.
  • Have a romantic 3-course meal put together for you and loved ones at TGI Friday's (since V-day falls on a Friday).
  • Share a sensual indulgence with Haagen-Dazs Valentine's Fondue.

5. Wrap up in the cinema.
Snuggle up in the couple seat and watch The Awkward Moment (GSC) in the company of warm popcorn.

How do you imagine your V-Day to be this year?

    Red is the new black this Chinese New Year

    Every Chinese New Year, we see cities and towns and malls in Malaysia, or Asia in general - being painted red. Yes, red lanterns, red flowers, red vases, red couplets of warm wishes and red ang pows as decorative.

    So come, saddle up and usher in the auspicious year of the horse with me... in pretty fashionable reds.

    New Year, New Hair at X Private Hair Salon

    Oh well, a new year is all about new experiences or adventures. And what better way to ring in the Lunar New Year with an evident memento - a new look!

    I've been contemplating a wavy style for quite a while now, and fell for its effortless sexy and sophisticated edge. It's a major decision and change for me - having the chemical invade my virgin hair. But this is just the change I needed to feel refreshed and it has already given me the boost to ride the waves in 2014!

    So, what do you think?

    Fresh curls make me happy!

    After all the fuss of worrying that the curls might turn out too curly or springy, or make me look overly matured instead of a sexy goddess, I must say... I'm pretty flabbergasted with the outcome. And I can finally make these pretty curls shine bright like a diamond.

    If you're planning to change your hairstyle for the coming CNY celebration, talk to the Artistic Director, Edmond Yeow at X Private Hair Salon and watch him weave his magic through your hair - almost like a fairy godmother (but the male version) *wink*

    X Private Hair Salon is the official hair partner for Queensbay Mall's
    Miss & Mr Oriental Pageant 2014

    Oh, and now is the best time to give your hair the much needed TLC. X Private Hair Salon is offering up to 50% OFF a selection of great treatments to keep your hair healthy and beautiful through the Spring Festival.

    Let's get the lookbook flipping and find your perfect new look!

    Going back to school

    It's been a week since school reopened and as kids head back to school, I'm feeling old and nostalgic. Maybe "old" is overrated, I'm still rocking it cool.

    I'm not ready to settle for "young at heart". Not yet.

    And if I were to relive my schooling years, these would be some of my back-to-school essentials. *wink*

    Pretty fix for bad hair days

    You'd probably already read how much I treasure my hair to the point that my mane shine bright like a diamond. I give my hair pretty extreme nurturing because I love keeping it long and healthy.

    My point is this: With all the festivities from Christmas to the partying into the brand new year 2014 and not to mention, all the late nights and hangovers... I need to get myself together again.

    But for now, I've resorted to these pretty headbands as my go-to fix for all the bad hair days I'm having.
