All that said, I hope everyone had fun taking part in the Christmas Giveaway this year and who knows, if I manage to get the sponsors again next year, we’ll do this all again in 1 year’s time! Keep your fingers crossed for supportive sponsors yes? 😀

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas everyone!

Note: I’ve been informed there is a local online seller on lowyat and perhaps on blogs going by the name “celine” who has stolen my picture below and some text to sell her own product. I am not associated with that seller and no consent has been obtained from me to use my photo or text.

A few years ago, when I first started getting into bags, I came across a bag organizer called the Purseket. It promised to keep your bag or purse organized and I craved and lusted after it, but the prices in USD plus shipping put me off since I’m in Malaysia and all. So, I bided my time and I waited and in the process gave up on a few bag designs and sizes because of disorganization issues.

Disorganized bag

Here is an example of a bag with disorganization problems. It is a simple handheld tote bag with a large main compartment and some slip pockets on the inside that can’t do much. It is a very useful bag because I can fit quite a lot of things in there, but in the process, I end up with a jumbled mess.

Keys get lost in the deep recesses of the bag, followed by sunglasses and forget looking for business cards! Half the time, my head would be stuck in my bag rooting around for something or another which can be a hassle and embarrassing, especially when I lose my mobile phone in there.

Introducing the Bag Organizer to save the world from disorganization! When I was at The Curve last weekend, I came upon a stall at the weekend bazaar at Cineleisure (next to The Curve) at Mutiara Damansara, that was selling bag organizers, amongst other things. When I saw it, I immediately yelled “Purseket!” because it was just that! The bag organizer was a purseket and available in RM and at an affordable price of RM29.90 which I proceeded to pay for in RM1 notes thanks to MySimplifieds! 😀 Its usually RM39.90 if purchased online but sold at a special promotion price at The Curve weekend bazaar.

If you have read through my site, you will notice a marked lack of posts relating to nail polish. A simple reason is that I like to keep my nails short and I always imagine that my nails are suffocating with polish on. However, that’s not to say that when I do apply nail polish on my nails, I don’t enjoy looking at my pretty nails. Lately however, I got the urge to colour my nails – its one of those things 😛

I know OPI nail polishes are among the best, but they are very pricey here in Malaysia. And as a polish novice, I wanted some fun colours I could play with without breaking the bank. Enter Elianto Nail Colors!

Elianto Nail Polish

Here are some fun nail polish colours I picked up from Elianto. They retail for a mere RM5 (US$1.40) a bottle and to my surprise, had some pretty colours and applied quite smoothly. I’m not a nail polish connoisseur so I can’t tell you much about them, save that the colours are pretty and pearly and shiny. 😛  I will however attest to the fact that they apply smoothly because I bought a Silkygirl nail polish recently on a whim for RM9.90 and the polish was awful. It applied very thick and goopy, the brush was awkward and I couldn’t get it smooth at all. I’m not sure if its the texture of the polish or the brush but either way I hated it.
