[Beauty] Mon Chéri: To Love and Be Loved

French always gave me the impression of "delicate and elegant", and this is exactly how I felt towards Mon Chéri. Mon Chéri means "to love and be loved" in French, and they believe in being comfortable in your own skin and be confident being an unique individual.

Mon Chéri is passionate in accentuating timeless natural beauty and preserving the skin, and you can see this in their skincare. Thanks to Mon Chéri, I had the chance to try the Lightener and Tinted Sun Crème SPF 50PA+++.
1. Lightener 30ml (RM 160)

The Lightener is a special designed lightweight formula which uses a synergistic combination of peptides, niacinamides, plant extracts and natural lactate. They have carefully chosen the ingredients that go into the Lightener and claims to
  • Tackle darkened skin complexion and irregularities in pigmentation
  • Improve photoaging marks
  • Control hyperpigmentation
Before I go any further, I really like the sweet and feminine packaging of the Lightener. It's so pretty!
Liking the heart-shaped design on the cap too! To pump out the product, just turn the cap anti-clockwise and turn it clockwise to lock the cap.

[Food] Bofe Eatery @ Section 19, Petaling Jaya

It has been a loooooooooooong time since I've last written a food post. However, if you have been following my Instagram account here, you'll see that it's being flooded with photos of food and coffee!
There are many hidden gems in SS2, and Bofe Eatery is one of them. Tuck along the same row as Restaurant Mungo Jerry, Bofe Eatery offers some decent dishes on their menu.
Getting a parking during weekdays will definitely be a nightmare due to offices and a school nearby; but you'll find ample parking space over the weekends.

Bofe offers Asian fusion cuisine, with both ala carte and set lunch during weekdays. The set lunch comes with your choice of drink and a dessert of the day.

Chicken Aglio Olio. The spaghetti was al dente and I like the heat in the dish, but I felt the dish could use some extra garlic in it. The chicken was cooked to perfection too - moist and well-seasoned.

[Beauty] Make Up Looks for Work

Hi, ladies! Sorry I have been MIA from my blog for a looooooooong time. I got caught up with work stuff and just came back from my Melbourne trip. Anyway, I'm going to kick-start my "blogging engine" again, and am going to start off with  a beauty post!
Regardless your job requires you to face the computer the whole day or socializing with people, it's always important to have the "appropriate" make up look. It's crucial to remember the rules of dos and don'ts of make up, especially in a workplace. You want to look pretty and professional at the same time, so do not go all out or overboard with your make up.
Here are some tips for you:
1. Have a Desk Job?
If you have a desk job, a light and natural make up would be perfect. Apply some foundation, eyeliner, mascara and light coloured lipstick is all you need. If you think these are too boring, choose some light colours eye shadows such as brown or light pastel colours.
