3 Cosmetics Brand Makeup Beginner Wajib Beli


Assalammualaikum.


Zaman sekarang yang kecik-kecik pun dah pandai melaram. Kat IG tu lambakan junior yang cun melecun mengalahkan senior-senior yang baru nak jinak-jinak dengan makeup. Mellya bukanlah jenis yang suka branded items sahaja. Kalau beli yang branded, selalunya simpan jadi pekasam sebab sayang nak guna. Yela mahal. So end up kita beli je yang dekat drugstores.

Mellya rasa jarang jumpa perempuan yang tak suka masuk Watsons, Guardians and sekutu dengannya bila pegi mall. Tak rancang pun, but mesti tersangkut dekat tempat ni. Satgi tengok bahagian skincare, satgi melekat pulak bahagian makeup. Kadang tu tak beli pun, saja nak test makeup-makeup yang ada dekat situ. haha However, bukan tu yang Mellya nak kongsi harini. Topic for this post ialah "Tiga Cosmetics Brand versi drugstore yang makeup beginner wajib beli".

Bagi yang nak mula menjinakkan diri dengan makeup, korang mesti dok fikir... macam-macam nya nak kena belikan? starting from skincare.. primer, foundation, compact, eye shadow, blusher, highlight etc...  pastu dok hitung pulak brapa lah bajet nak kena keluar tu.. haha So for beginner, kenapa nak beli yang memahal, why not starts with drugstore products?

Maybelline, Loreal and others memang sangat famous dekat drugstores. Tapi bagi Mellya, yang tu boleh dikatakan pricey jugakla kan compared to these three brand yang Mellya nak suggest kat korang tu. Tau tak apa? Silky GirlEssence Cosmetics and Catrice Cosmetics. Familiar kan?

MY OPINIONS:



Silky Girl. Mellya sangat suka bedak compact dia especially Silky White 2 way powder foundation dengan bb whitening powder. Muka memang tak berminyak and tak rasa heavy bila pakai. Disebabkan dia bersifat foundation and bb, so kalau tak pakai foundation pun muka still gebu. Blusher dia punya comel, senang nak bawak dalam beg. In the matters of eyebrow, mellya suka natural eyebrow pencil Silky Girl yang warna coklat. Sangat terang and best nak pakai. Cumanya tak sediakan brush kening. Next most favourite makeup daripada Silky Girl ialah Matte Junkie lip cream yang sangat best. Ada banyak shades nude yang sukakan matte look, boleh pakai lipcream daripada Silky Girl ni. Well recommended for makeup beginners sebab sangat easy to use.


Essence Cosmetics. I love everything about it! High quality with an affordable price. Untuk Essence Mellya suka eyebrow mascara and mascara. Ada macam-macam jenis mascara, semua nya best. For those yang suka light makeup and newbie, i suggest you to try Essence punya foundation. Highlight, and eyeshadows etc semuanya sangat pigmented. Product essence ni seasonal. Korang boleh tengok dekat sini Trend. Sangat cepat habis and lambat nak restock unfortunately. huhu



Catrice Cosmetics. Macam Essence jugak, Catrice juga makeup brand dari Europe. Dekat overseas memang laris sebab harga dia and kualiti nya sangat bagus. Product vegan, and selamat. Mellya selalunya beli contour palette dengan liquid eyeshadow jenama Catrice. Dia punya loose powder pun sangat best.

Overall, 3 product ni memang sangat sesuai untuk korang yang nak jinak2 dengan makeup tapi nak make sure budget is under control. Tiga-tiga product ni memang famous dekat drugstores, cuma Catrice and Essence susah sikit nak cari certain places lama sangat masa dia amik untuk restock. Maybe disebabkan product ni limited and overseas? haha however, 3 brand ni je Mellya yakin kualiti and harga dia sangat best. First brand that i tried ialah Silky Girl and the rest sampai lah pakai pulak Sendayu Tinggi.

So korang plak? Masa memula makeup dulu, brand apa jadi pilihan?  ❤

Cara Mellya Menghilangkan Parut Jerawat Dengan Lebih Cepat


Assalammualaikum.


Ramai cakap skin Mellya cantik. Depa tak tau Mellya ni kekadang ditumbuhi jerawat jugak. Satu perkara yang Mellya tak suka pasal jerawat ialah PARUT. Parut tak yah cakapla banyaknya dekat pipi, concealer satu benda paling penting bagi Mellya haha. Kesan parut jerawat tu memang susah sangat nak hilang kadang tu sampai berbulan-bulan, bertahun-tahun tak hilang. Dulu waktu zaman sekolah, Mellya banyak tumbuh jerawat kat dahi. Pipi clean and clear masa zaman sekolah. Diploma muka jarang-jarang tumbuh jerawat. Masuk degree, yang dekat dahi sembuh, parut setitik pun tak dak (ramai terkejut sebab parut Mellya memang hilang), tapi melarat jerawat kat pipi pulak huhuhu

Sekarang ni, jerawat masih ada cuma waktu-waktu tertentu bila hormon perempuan tak stabil. Haha parut tu lah yang ketegaq betul tak mau nak hilang! Due to my eagerness to make this year a year to clear my acne and scars, i spent my time to search everything about acne scars. So here's what i am currently practicing. muahaha 


Cara Mellya Menghilangkan Parut Jerawat 

Dengan Lebih Cepat


Vitamin E
Banyak article yang cakap vitamin E sangat bagus untuk penyembuhan parut dan membaiki tisu kulit. So Mellya beli Vitamin E Garden of Eden Natur E Scar Serum ni dekat Aeon Wellness, kalau tak salah mahal jugak, dalam lingkungan RM 80+. Tapi disebabkan semangat berkobar-kobar nak muka bebas parut, sanggup. haha sebotol ni boleh tahan lama jugak, sekarang dah masuk 3 bulan dah. Vitamin E ni Mellya pakai seluruh muka, sikit ja sebab dia oil. Nanti Mellya buat review khas untuk Garden of Eden Natur E ni. Setakat ni sangat puas hati dengan scar serum ni, parut yang timbul and agak berlubang tu ada perubahan sikit.

Acne & Scar Treatment and Whitening Sendayu Tinggi 
Yang ni dah tube ke-dua. Sapu seluruh muka terutama area pori besar. Nampak kesan dia lebih awesome dekat parut jerawat baru and reduce size pori. Harga pun boleh tahan murah around RM 30+ untuk 15 g. Nanti Mellya buat review khas untuk acne cream ni jugak ye.

Hiruscar Post Acne 
Yang ni pun sangat best sapu dekat jerawat and parut. Harini sapu esok boleh nampak area tu macam kering (ada setengah tak suka, tapi Mellya suka sebab dia mengeringkan jerawat tu). Satu tube 10g je harga dah RM 30+. haha tak pa janji berkesan. Review khas coming soon.

Scrub
Kerap-keraplah pakai scrub atleast 3 times a week. Bila kita scrub, dead skin cells semua bye-bye, and area parut tu lagi cepat nak bersalin kulit dan faded. Mellya suka pakai scrub St Ives Oatmeal and Freeman. Nanti Mellya share scrub yang Mellya pakai tu ya.

Lemon dan Madu
Yang ni Mellya belum cuba lagi, katanya tak sesuai untuk yang berkulit sensitif. Lepas cuci muka dengan air suam and pencuci muka, perah lemon dan ambil kapas, sapu perahan lemon tu seluruh muka. Tunggu beberapa minit dan bilas. Lepas tu sapu kat muka madu manuka dekat area parut sebelum tidur. Lemon juice tu ada setengah orang jadikan sebagai toner, okay jugak. By the way, ada juga orang guna tea tree oil untuk heal jerawat and scars, tapi Mellya tak sesuai so tak dapat nak try that method. 

Air
Minum air secukupnya untuk menghidrasi kulit. Bila kulit sentiasa lembap dan dihidrasi, lagi cepat lah proses penyembuhan parut berlaku. Masalah nak bagi rajin minum air ni yang paling payah. haha Mellya sebotol besar je pun tak boleh nak habis, macam mana nak minum air 3 liter sehari? Aduhai..

So these ends my post for today. Mesti ramai kan nak cepat-cepat hilangkan parut jerawat? Mellya dah set tahun ni memang tahun healing and cure. ahaha sebab.... doakan ye! hahaha agaknya sapalah yang dapat teka sebab apa. By the way, sebenarnya cara paling cepat ialah jangan gatal-gatal picit jerawat macam Mellya, and time parut tengah baru tu, cecepat la cari jalan bagi dia heal. Jangan biar lama, parut lama susah nak hilang tau. 

Post ni bukan sponsored post ye. Semua perbelanjaan sendiri hahaha

Mellya dah share cara Mellya, macam mana hampa bagi hilang parut dengan cepat pulak?

Start your story with Trollbeads

credit: https://www.facebook.com/TrollbeadsMY/

Have you ever heard about Trollbeads before? Trollbeads is a  jewellery line (just like Pandora and Thomas Sabo.. but much more "senior" than those two) which was established in the year 1976 in Copenhagen, Denmark.  It was sparked by Soren 'Silversmith' Nielsen when he created the first Trollbeads, which portrays faces and figures. The name 'Trollbeads itself refers to the faces or figures that Soren Nielsen has crafted upon.  Later on his craftsmanship is inspired by mythology, trolls, stories, flora fauna and cultural diversity. Afterwards Soren's sister, Lise Aagaard jumped in to the line and have put together the beads with silver bracelets which initially was beads with leather cord necklace. She became the founder of Trollbeads, and went on to open a jewellery shop. Then, Trollbeads was created in collaboration with the customers when the customers developed the concept of putting several beads on the bracelets.
first bead made by Soren. Looks a little bit scary wasn't it lol

This jewellery line crafts authentic and aesthetic jewelleries ranging from the beads or charms itself, bracelets, necklace, rings and earrings. Quoted from its official website, "Every story has a bead" implies that each beads has its own representation of memories and even personality. Furthermore, Trollbeads let their customers to build on their own story by adding the beads the way they wanted. It is the customers fascination on collecting beads, bracelets and so forth that keeps on fuelling Trollbeads's enthusiasm in jewel making. 
As I was sooooo curious to know, I had made some research on the differences between Trollbeads, Pandora and Thomas Sabo. So, here's what i get: 


Pandora beads fit in Trollbeads chains but not the other way round. Some Trollbeads does fit in Pandora's chain. There's a collection named as Universal Uniques which are designed with large opening so it fits major number of brands such as Pandora and Chamilia.


Trollbeads comes along with the original concept which seems much more traditional and rustic compared to Pandora and Thomas Sabo as they seems to be more towards a modernized approach. Pandora and Thomas Sabo designs are nice and attractive but Trollbeads is a masterpiece, the design looks more handcrafted compared to the others. 

Trollbeads offers different kind of bracelets, necklace, rings, earrings, tiaras, sterling silvers, jewelry and others too.(You can check them out herePandora known for its charms bracelet and Thomas Sabo for its sterling silver and charms. 

Want to start your own story?


You can start by choosing your bracelets or bangle. Next step should be the beads and the lock or spacer. As you can see, I have been eyeing on this fairy tale section. Urgh!

 
 The designs are superb and very captivating !

Current collections; Valentine's. According to Trollbeads, The Rose Spacer is designed by Anders Martin Bruun. Anders is a designer who has made multiple designs for Trollbeads, but this is actually his first bead with flowers.
Spring Collections. You can watch this short video featuring the beads, rings and necklace from this enchanted forest collection, a new collection for the year 2018. I like the necklace to be honest!


Trollbeads have been in the market for  a very long time. 
Today, Trollbeads can be found both online and offline over 400 countries worldwide.  


 For Malaysians, if you prefer to find them offline :

Trollbeads Mid Valley Megamall
75 Lingkaran Syed Putra
Kuala Lumpur

Trollbeads Sunway Pyramid
Jalan PJS 11/15
47500 Petaling Jaya 

Trollbeads Vivacity
Jalan Wan Alwi
93350 Kuching 


That's end my short entry about Trollbeads. Hopefully you like this post as much as I do. lol Thanks for reading. Cheers !

Assalammualaikum.


Mellya sejak kecil lagi kulit memang sangat sensitif. Kena habuk, gigitan serangga sikit je pun mesti akan jadi gatal-gatal and merah-merah satu badan. Time jadi tu mulalah kelam-kabut cari ubat sapu. Dulu kalau jadi macam tu kalut, rushing gi klinik. Sekarang tak payah dah sebab dah ada lotion daripada Ranessa ni. hehe

Menabung Dengan Money Saving Checklist



Assalammualaikum.


Tahun ni Mellya dah berumur 25 tahun. Macam tak percaya je dah tua. haha rasa macam sama je, tak da perubahan tapi dari segi muka maybe lah makin kedut ehhh hehehe So dalam banyak-banyak azam tahun baru Mellya, satu ni memang ongoing punya must do. Apa dia? Simpan duit. Sebelum ni Mellya ada share Cara Untuk Menabung Yang Sangat Efektif Bagi yang belum baca, silakan. hehe entry kalini tercetus lepas tengok entry Mai pasal planner yang viral tu. Bahagian yang paling menarik minat Mellya ialah bahagian "Saving Challenge". 

Money Saving Checklist


Apa sebenarnya dimaksudkan dengan money saving checklist ni? Actually ianya satu jadual atau lebih kita kenal sebagai checklist untuk ditanda, setiap kali kita menyimpan duit kita tick lah satu persatu. Hehe menarik kan?  

Kelebihan 'Money Saving Checklist'
- Boleh set target yang dikehendaki 
- Bina disiplin diri
- Simpan duit lebih teratur
- Capai target on time

Senang je nak buat checklist ni. Jom tengok cara-cara buat 'Money Saving Checklist'

Set target total akhir yang korang inginkan. For example, Mellya nak simpan RM 2600 dalam masa 52 minggu atau 365 hari. Untuk secara mingguan, setiap minggu Mellya kena simpan RM 50. Kalau secara harian, setiap hari Mellya kena simpan RM 7.20.

Draft kan jadual anda. Benda penting yang wajib ada dalam checklist bagi memudahkan rujukan korang ialah calendar 2018, column minggu/hari, tarikh deposit, total, balance, column tick. Nak buat cantik-cantik boleh design sendiri, kalau malas download je dari Uncle Google mesti banyak ada hehe

So bawah ni ada contoh calendar and checklist Mellya. Mellya buat size A5 je. Kecik comel senang nak paste dalam buku. hehe Kalau korang nak letak atas meja or paste dekat board, buatla besar sikit. Bagi nampak clear hahah


Calendar untuk rujukan.

365 hari untuk RM 2600
52 minggu untuk RM 2600

Simple kan? hehe Korang boleh lah buat macam ni jugak. Calendar Mellya buat guna Photoshop, Checklist Mellya guna Words je. Mulanya nak letak background kaler-maler tapi nak print tu sayang pulak ink hahaha so end up tukar jadi putih je. Kalau korang nak boleh drop email untuk Mellya share. Malas nak upload google drive haha

So tahun baru ni jom la sama-sama menyimpan. Mellya dah pasang angan nak try yang RM50 per week tuh. Every week terus transfer RM 50 ke ASB. haa kalau letak dalam tabung ada pulak tangan ni mengorek time-time bernafsu hihihi Kbye! ❤
