It’s been months since my last facial, which is quite a big deal for me, as I love my facials. I had a teaser experience at La Mer almost 6 months ago (has it been that long?!) and it had bugged me ever since. I knew it was a matter of time before I went down to the sole La Mer Spa here in Kuala Lumpur for the full 75 minute deal.

Here in Malaysia, the sole La Mer Spa Experience is to be found at Metrojaya Mid Valley Megamall, where you can make your appointment just to have a 75 minute facial, without having to buy the products. There are facial cabins in other counters which offer a 45 minute facial, but those are complimentary treatments with purchase of products. This then, is the real deal! icon biggrin Salon Spy: La Mer The Spa Experience Facial Treatment   75 minutes of sheer bliss!

I went down with a friend because I like having an independent opinion and we paid for this, lest you think otherwise icon wink Salon Spy: La Mer The Spa Experience Facial Treatment   75 minutes of sheer bliss! But it turned out to be rather more affordable than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise.

Some of you may have realised that part of the reason for my silence and sporadic posting schedule on the blog was due to me moving house. The timing of the move was such, that it was smack in the middle of a very busy period at work, not smart planning on my part, and the impression that I could be more efficient than I really was. This was the first time I was moving house and I swear, it will be the last! I don’t think I could put myself through all that stress again icon razz Tip: 12 + 1 Practical Tips for what to do when moving house

I hate to tell poeple that anything is a must have, simply because I’m not  a big believer that anything is truly a must have. But now and again, something attempts to change my mind and it so happens I have come across that very one!

nars malacca mono2 Rare is a must have but then rare also is the unique NARS Malacca eyeshadow

The one item I’m quite happy to tout as a “must have” is the NARS Malacca eyeshadow single. It was launched for Summer 2014 but is quite thankfully a permanent item so it’s still possible to go and get it, and the best thing is that it can quite easily transition you into Fall and Winter as well.

I’m not sure of the origins of the name, but knowing NARS’ predilection for naming their eyeshadows for places, I’m inclined to believe that Nars Malacca was named for Malacca, a state found right here in Malaysia icon biggrin Rare is a must have but then rare also is the unique NARS Malacca eyeshadow Malacca was historically a large Sultanate in the region, and a key port on the spice route, where traders from the East and West would meet to trade in spices. Malacca was also where the first colonization of our country began, with the Portugese in 1511 for over 130 years before the Dutch and the English. It was the starting point for the growth of our country and is the most historical city we have. So, let’s just say I’m quite pleasantly surprised to see an eyeshadow with a name I can relate to. If it was intended to of course icon biggrin Rare is a must have but then rare also is the unique NARS Malacca eyeshadow

Malacca is described as a iridescent peacock shade, and in pan, looks like a blackened emerald green. It looks amazing in pan but it turns out that it is quite surprising when used.

When Dior first launched their One Essential serum back in 2010, I took it for a spin and declared that I liked it. I did, I do and I used up a couple of bottles. It was one of my first experiences with a pre-serum because it was meant to be used before any other serum, to boost the efficacy of the products used.

It’s now 2014 and as will happen, this popular product has now been given a boost and given a new lease of life.
