Anchor | Artisanal Pizzas Through Pizzart

Theres Artisanal Pizza's baking in the oven
This post brings me excitement and joy because Anchor Food Professionals has recently launched an exciting campaign with their partners and this time with a twist by recreating the art of Pizza! When pizza is mentioned, if youre a pizza lover, you would definitely love the closest ingredient to it, CHEESE! Celebrating pizza in this new campaign "PizzArt", it really brought pizza a notch up into a form of art. From had-core foodies, to discerning gourmand, these pizzas would not dissapoint.

Introducing Muffin Pizza's from Movida for a bite-sized snack
Indeed delicious, hearty and satisfying as each bite would be a stringy with cheese
Anchor has collaborated with 25 outlets in Peninsula and East Malaysia, where Anchor Food Professionals ntroduced artisanal pizzas that has taken my world (and possibly anyones world who ecounters it) by storm. Believe me when i say that the pizzas are masterpieces of its own, namely flower pizzas, pizza bombs, adjaruli khacapuri, mini muffin pizzas and pot pie pizzas. These pizza's are just waiting to be devoured from May to mid November 2017, and yes that means its only available for a limited time only.

Heres the Adjaruli Khachapuri from U Pizzeria
Great for cheesy lovers, filled with cheesy goodness
These artisanals pizzas were conceptualized artisticly by Anchor Food Professionals Hot Cooking Chef and i believe that they actually took a lot of time and effort to make it happen. OH, did i mention that the pizzas are to be made by the kitchen crew which means that they are simply made fresh? These are REAL pizza's we're talking about here. I was told by the kitchen that they had to even attend workshops to have specialized skills in preparing these artisants pizza too. Talk about exclusiveness ey?

Pizza Bombs to explode after every bite
Just look at that chessy goodness! I CANNOT! #cravings
The recipes to prepare these delicous looking pizzart's calls for only the finest ingredients which features Anchor Mozzarella Shredded Chesse, Anchor Unsalted Butter, Anchor Colby Cheese, Anchor Cheedar Cheese, and Mainland Edam Cheese. Anchor to me and many Malaysians has already took the leading position in the dairy segment, and i have no doubt that when preparing meals with their ingredients would bring your dish to an upper class standard.

Merz Aesthetics reaches One Million Ultherapy Treatments Worldwide!

Merz Aesthetics has reached over One Million treatments!
Last week i managed to catch Merz Aesthetics during the exhibition fair and found out that they have announced that Ultherapy® is celebrating the milestone achievement of providing one million treatments globally. It has been globally launched in 2008, and has been well known for its non-invasive ultrasound device which has become a game-changer in physician offices worldwide by using the body’s own regenerative response to gently and naturally stimulate collagen growth (and by that, it also means no knives and needles going through the skin. YAY!)  With this technology, the revolutionary treatment is the only U.S FDA-cleared non-invasive skin-lift for neck, under the chin and on the eyebrow. Now Authentic Ultherapy™ is also U.S FDA-cleared to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the d├ęcolletage.

Dr Cheok Jia Rhong as our speaker of the day sharing his expertise
Before and After results of Ultherapy
I was lucky enough to also catch a sharing session by Dr Cheok Jia Rhong, where he mentioned that “Ultherapy® is frequently requested in my office because it’s non-invasive, naturally stimulates collagen growth, and provides visible results. Because of this, the treatment has become a favorite among my patients, so it is no surprise that it has reached such a remarkable milestone,” states Dr Cheok Jia Rhong, Aesthetic Medicine Practitioner (LCP Holder). “Not only does the treatment deliver these incredible benefits, it also requires little to no downtime, allowing those treated with Ultherapy® to quickly get back to their everyday routines.” And i have to say that painless treatments with results are the key to the beauty industry in today's era (cause nobody enjoys pain and permanent damage).

The Authentic Ultherapy machine (with seal on right bottom corner)
Making the treatment even more popular among physicians, Ultherapy®’s proprietary DeepSEE™ ultrasound imaging allows physicians to see the detailed layers of tissue targeted during the treatment to ensure energy is deposited where it will be most beneficial. This unique technology is supported by more than 50 clinical studies, more than 60 published, peer reviewed papers, and over 100 patents worldwide. I even had a chance to get a close up with the machine and im pretty amazed on how techonology works! 

Authetic Ultherapy symbol
Authentic seal
“Ultherapy® continues to lead in the category due to its breakthrough, award-winning innovation, our dedicated physicians, and consistent patient satisfaction. We look forward to celebrating the next million treatments.” After hearing out about Ultherapy throughout the session, i learned so much about how to maintain skin elasticiry and on other solutions that does not require you to go under sharp objects. YAY!

With bloggers at the talk session
It was indeed a lovely session with Merz Malaysia. And if you are unaware, Merz Malaysia will be celebrating the physicians who played a role in the success of Ultherapy’s® 1 Million Treatment achievement worldwide. Its no wonder that they managed to reach 1 million in less than 10 years. Will results that would last, there is no doubt that the brand pays attention to a lot of detail. xx

[Unboxing] Althea Raya 2017 Haul

Unboxing review
Ordered early June, and my parcel arrived just in time for Raya. YAY! I really don't know where to start as there are just so many things to say about Althea this festive season. If you haven't noticed, Althea decided to join in the Raya festive season by having crazy promotional offers which is inclusive of a special Althea Limited Edition Raya box. What's there not to love? Since I've been collecting almost all their boxes at home (call me a hoarder for all I care), I couldn't resist but to get myself this.

Its so 'Ramadhan'  like
Sneak Peak! 
Here's a little sneak peak on what I got from Althea Korea, and don't worry, I'll be sharing with you a more detailed review as you scroll below. Hehe. Althea boxes are usually in pink, but to compliment the festive season, my parcel came in a green (very Raya) themed box. It had all the graphics that represented the festive season, and I have to give credit to the graphic designer for putting really cute efforts in making this box Raya ready. Psst, I also found myself a green packet from Althea too in my box. #sorare

PRESENTING TO YOU MY HAUL

Aritaum Shalp Cushion Brush | RM19
Great for gentle brushing!
Now, let's have a more detailed close up on what I got. First up in my unboxing attempt would be an Aritaum Cushion hair brush. Why did I get myself a hair brush? Because always needed a cushion hair brush for milder brushing. I was told that if you have 'hair fall' problems, it would be best to use a gentle brush like this cushion hair brush. I always tried to look for a hair brush similar to this, but it's usually so pricey! But I was really surprised to get this from Althea at only RM19 *Steal deal* and I have no regrets!

Peri's Ink Velvet in Celeb Deep Rose | RM32
Loving the shade and the texture of this
Lizly Oh My Awesome in Awesome Marsala Tint | RM31
The shade is LAV. (Occasionally i think im in love with shades that are in the same family) LOL
Being it a Raya season, I believe that makeup plays a really important role to enhance your Raya outfit. So please bare with me with my makeup purchases. Hehe. I decided to get myself two lovely lip shades one, featuring Lizly Matte in Awesome Marsala and another lip shade featuring peri's Ink Velvet in Celeb Deep Rose. Both have really interesting textures and they leave a very natural tint shade onto your lips, which I don't have to worry about reapplying after I eat at Raya open houses and etc. Hehe. You like?

WangSkin Eyebrow Tattoo Pen in Dark Brown | RM32
I also got myself this pretty cool Eyebrow tattoo which I cant wait to try it out. Always wanted to give it a go, but never really had the guts to really apply it cause I used to be really bad in applying eyebrow shades. But after lots of practice over the months, I am ready to take up the challenge. On the website, it says that the tattoo will be good enough to stay on for about a week which also means I get to save time on days when I wake up late. HAHA. Will definitely do a more detailed write-up on this soon.

A:Concept Triple Contour | RM46
Swatches
Next would be a Triple Contour Compact by A: Concept. Not exactly sure how to use this yet cause usually, my contouring compacts are in one solid color. I decided to get this cause I belive that it would leave a very natural shading on your skin, and it can double as eyeshadow too! I managed to do a slight swatch on it and I'm not too impressed with the pigmentation sadly. Being slightly tanned, this doesn't really show on your skin that well, but if you want a natural look, then this would be great.

Witch Pouch Shadow in SD3 | RM10
SD3 - Shades of the sea
Last but not least, I got myself a Witch's Pouch Shadow for Eyes. I swear you wouldn't believe how much I got this for. I'm not too sure why, but it's going for RM10 on Althea.kr which I believe that its wayway way too cheap to resist. I previously owned a darker brownish shade of this and I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the looks it can create (especially when you want to travel light during travels). hehe. I believe there are still stock on site, so hurry if you don't want to miss out on this offer. hehe

FREEBIES (RAYA PROMOTION)

MatFix Matt Lip (RAYA GIVEAWAY) | FREE
Althea seriously is the sweetest when it comes to festive seasons. Festive seasons are always about giving back, and surprise I got myself a sample pack of shampoo and a full size Matte Lip by Mat Fix. YAS! Samples are samples to me, but I swear I can't believe I got to choose my full sized freebie from Althea. Hehe. I got the Mat Fix Matt Lip in Mata Hari, and it looks like a vampy blood red shade. HAHA. Only God knows when I'll be confident enough to wear this, but I gave this a swatch and I love the texture. Can you imagine yourself wearing this shade on your lips? Hehe

Look, i got a Raya pack and a shampoo sample (BONUS)
And there you have it guys! I hope I didn't go overboard with my haul, and surprise, I got all these at about RM163.70 only?! INSANE! I usually would get just 2 lipsticks if I'm lucky for the amount I spend in stores, and this is one of the reasons why I love Althea. BEST PLACE FOR K-BEAUTY! Hehe. Thank you for reading my humble blog post, and I'm happy to say that Althea Korea is available worldwide now. Head on over to Althea.kr to shop now. xx

[REVIEW] G9Skin Lipsticks


You've heard it all about G9 in my previous post, but did you know that they have a really nice range of lipsticks too? I was lucky enough to grab hold of these 5 amazing shades by G9Skin and I can't wait to share with you the looks I managed to create. I always thought that makeup needs to have like a color palette to create a look in overall, but surprise, with these babies, you won't event need to put on that much makeup to create attitude.

PACKAGING 



The packaging comes in a chic square tube and I'm loving how good it looks when you put it on flatlay. #instagramworthy! And like any other lipstick, you just need to twist the tube to get the lipstick out. Easy right? It comes in 5 incredibly sexy shades and even in shades that I never thought that would look good on me. Personally speaking, I'd say that the shades have been created to suit almost any skin tone (including mine). What can you not love about Korean cosmetics right?

TEXTURE & SWATCHES 



Before applying it on, I did a swatch test to test out the texture, and to my surprise, it has a matte like finish! Not exactly a fan of matte lippies because it usually would dry out my skin, but I was actually impressed by the texture of G9Skin Lipsticks as it doesn't make my lip crack and it's actually rather moisturizing as well. I was actually a little skeptical about the texture as I thought I need to moisturize my lips first, but I guess G9Skin has got it all covered for you. YAS, thank you G9Skin!

NOW TO SPICE THINGS UP! 

01 Midnight Red
02 Dry Rose 
03 Dazzling Pink
04 Peach Brown
05 Vintage Red
VERDICT

As an overall, I actually love all the shades on me, especially Vintage Red (cause I'm classy that way). HAHA. But yes, I believe that getting the right shades would really create different impacts on your looks, despite wearing the same attire, no? The shades are indeed very unique and some are shades that I've never seen in stores before. Not too bad G9Skin, I shall look forward to more exciting shades for you to come up with *thumbs up. Now tell me, which shade is your favorite? ;)
