It’s what I’ve been dreamed of!

You see, I love using aromatherapy to really  me up and restore my mood, and now I’m really happy! ^^

Here’s a video of how to use it in Youtube..

Quoted from the website here

Zenbow is multifunctional:

  • Aroma Diffuser – diffuses essential, fragrance & perfume oils
  • Mini Humidifier – hydrating & moisturising, without creating condensation
  • Air Purifier – air quality is greatly improved
  • Ioniser – produces negative ions which makes you feel good!
  • Funky Colour Changing Mood Light – gradually changes through the complete colour spectrum with added features of “favourite colour selection” and “no light” modes

Right now I’m using a mix of peppermint  and green tea essential oil. So refreshing to use in the evening! And I especially notice that the air I breathe feels so refreshing, maybe cause it’s purifying ya? ^^

Ok then, thank you for reading.. Bye! \(^_^)/

A Gift for My Mom

 Hi! 
Time does flies, doesn't it? 

The last time I posted in this blog was like, 4 months ago.. I almost thought I'd forget how to write a post..
But turns out my fingers are typing this post like crazy, hehe.. 

I want to share my recent beauty purchase, which is a fragrance that I bought for my mom. Her Lovely SJP perfume was running out so I wanted to buy a perfume for her. And I found this... 
Sarah Jessica Parker 
The Lovely Collection - Endless
Another SJP perfume, yes.. But I couldn't resist, cause I think this one matches my mom's personality the most.. :) 
The perfume notes are: 
Top notes with a blend of pineapple, apple, ivy leaves and plum. 
Heart with peony, pink jasmine and magnolia.
Base notes with oakmoss, Indonesian patchouli, Australian sandalwood, vetiver and suede musk.
Seriously, I didn't know that she uses Indonesian patchouli for this fragrance when I bought it, now I know why! haha.. :D 


Love the ads.. Everything is in pink and SJP looks so lovely! ^^ 

My first impression when I smelled the fragrance, I felt like I'm in a flower garden holding a picnic basket with my spring dress, fill with beautiful flowers everywhere.. (okay, floral perfume make me feel like this) But it's light and not too overpowering. This fragrance no doubt is feminine and girly. Over time the scent develops into softer peony blossom which I recognize very well. The dry down is musky patchouli, with a hint of sweetness. 

When I gave it to my mom this afternoon, she opened and smelled it. 
Guess what she say? "Ah...*sighing happily* This is my scent." 
Perfect ending. 
See you at my next post! (soon hopefully) ^^
