Santa Hermo, Grant My Little Wishlist.. Please..

You better watch out, 
you better not cry,
you better not pout,
I'm telling you why,
Santa Hermo is coming to town.... 

Ho ho ho...

It's almost December and it's Christmas season every corner we look at!

Sadly, I won't be home for Christmas for the third year this year... =(

Not being home meaning I won't be getting any Christmas presents unless someone out there would like to send a present to me =D

I'm sure someone out there is feeling the same way I do about not being home with the family and friends for Christmas... The food.. The joy and laughter... OMG!

But fret not (while saying to myself as well)
HERMO is playing Santa Hermo this year!

How often do you come across a contest by well-known corporation that aims to bring about difference in our daily lives?

This year, Philips brings to you Innovation That Matters To You which aims at getting the community to join in and pitch in your ideas in bringing better community. All you need to do is submit your innovative ideas in either/both categories: Healthier Homes or Safer City, as long as your idea is realistic, sustainable and benefits many others.

Look Into My Win: Wonderbox October Issue!

How time flies and it's already mid November. Every corners we turn to we see Christmas decorations ever so shinning and glittering. We're lucky to be in Malaysia, where all of us enjoy and take part in every festivities we have!

Let's get back to the topic, shall we?

Honestly speaking, I never had any luck in winning any lucky draws in my life as a teenager. Any day up, I would just give it a shot for the heck of it thinking I have nothing to lose anyhow. When I came across a blog by Koey Leow, she was having her ♥ Wonderbox October Edition Giveaway!! and I obviously gave it shot. The reason I gave it shot was because I saw what was in the box.

Diligently doing the necessary requirements she have posted up, then the big day came when she ended her giveaway. I was busy so I hadn't scroll through her blog to follow up but I was constantly hoping my phone will ring with an email saying I won. Then, I got the news - I WON! 


I shall share with you my win.

She even included a handwritten note =)

Bag of Love's Halloween Beauty Bag (Oct)!

As the sun sets and out comes the dark sky...
The ghouls and spirits come out to play...

Go around and screaming, "Boohohohoho..."

When the calendar shows '31st of October', have yourselves a spook-tacular Halloween!

In the spirit of Halloween, Bag Of Love and The Butterfly Project Malaysia came together to have a little surprise for the caterpillars of The Butterfly Project!

25 Bloggers were randomly selected and I am soooo happy to be one of them to be given the opportunity to review this bag that I have always heard about.

You may have heard of beauty boxes or Ipsy Bag (to those who are fan of Michelle Phan). Bag Of Love is a Malaysia based 'beauty box' that provides the subscribers a bag / 'box' filled with wonderful products in deluxe sample-size and every month, there's a different themed bag with different products with every bag. The beauty bags will be delivered to your doorsteps upon subscription.

That's not all the goodie part of Bag Of  Love! Mimi, founder of Bag Of Love said, 
"For a monthly subscription fee of just RM39.90, you don't only get a beautiful bag filled to the brim with beauty products, but you get to be part of a charity drive as RM1 from each bag sold will go to our Bag of Love fund. At the end of every month, we will decide where to donate the fund to together with our subscribers. :)"
Seee... You get to try and experience products as well as help with charity!

Here's my take on Bag Of Love Halloween Special!

It's here! I was in campus still, all the way in Pahang when I got the email from  Tammy that I'm one of the chosen Caterpillars from The Butterfly Project to review Bag of Love's October Special. I had to call home the very next day to ask my mommy dearest if the bag arrived safely. When I got home, the first thing I did was to unwrap!!

Jeng jeng jeng.... Here comes Bag of Love Lice! Be afraid to look further!
