Skin Care Prep

Alright my darling readers....

I want to share some tips, well its only because I trust what I use and only recommend the best and result worthy.

Everybody wants to have that glow....of course spiritually, your own inner self will be glowing..but it wont hurt to get your skin glowing too. I am blessed with normal skin, oily tzone, but I have a few acne marks here and there from yester years and also the stubborn blackheads.. I do have facials done, but honestly my job just kills time really. So I had to take matters into my own hands.

There are some products that even my friends used too coz they saw the difference it reflected on me.

Shall we start?

alright here goes all

  1. Himalaya's Neem Face Pack - its like taking a layer of dead skin cells off your every time! I use it like 2 times a week, if I can. All you do is apply an ever layer all over skin, not too little, but be generous, and wait for it to dry, usually less than 10 mins. Then use a wet sponge to wipe it off. The price is affordable around RM 27.00, available at all pharmacies and also the Himalaya boutique.                     
  2. Then I use  a scrub to really scrape of the final dead skin cells, Laura Mercier's Face Polish. Just a small amount to gommage your face. No more than 2 minutes...But I really feel that my skin is so smooth after this. Previously I just used St Ives Apricot Scrub, its been in the market forever! But I stumble upon LM's and just couldn't resist to try, and in love till today. However its a tad expensive really RM 90 I think per tube. But you can just use St Ives Apricot Scrub which is a mere RM16. 
  3. Ok so now all your pores are open, so please we need to tighten them up and sealed, delivered, I'm yours.. Zain uses, St Ives Firming Clay Mask since I was 15 years old. It really is just that good! It firms up the pores. Price, RM 17 i think last i bought.                                                                                           
  4. Ok...make up remover is an ESSENTIAL, coz you must get all of it OFF before you go to bed and let your skin breathe. Luckily for me, I have tried so many types of make up removers. From Shu Uemura to Loreal, Ponds, Olay...and the list goes on. I sound old right? Well the winner for me is, Neutragena Deep Clean Cleansing Lotion. My skin dramatically became softer. I never changed brands since. A steal at RM 26.50!          
 Lips.... I never gave it much tender love and care... Except for smacking on lip balms whenever possible. But my make up maestro introduced me to one lip balm, that I wear on before I sleep...and in the morning, ohhhh my lips are so soft like a baby's! I am not trying to be pretentious, but its so true! If you are willing to pay a lot, I must say this is worth every cent you pay. It is Bobbi Brown's Lip Balm. RM 70 if not mistaken, I bought my first, and it takes forever to finish! Coz you dont apply a lot, and its just for the lips!                                                                        

Alright, this list will be edited soon to add a few more stuff, I just really need to get some beauty sleep now ;)

Love Zain 


Pale Blush is the New White

I must really say.....I think Ayu Raudah's wedding was very nice.. The colors, the flowers, the dresses and everything were pretty. It had a certain touch of class but yet not over the top that made you want to say bad things.. 

I personally like the dress above...I always thought for my own wedding, apart from the MUST white dress for nikah..I wanted to have a reception dress in a nude almost white and blush color... very subtle.... sweet... yet astonishing in a princess-y way.

And then came Reese...

she too chose a blushing pink dress to her recent wedding to Jim Toth... Its such a sweet color. 

here are some other dresses that caught my eye...

  Anna Kendric at the Oscars..

  Emily Blunt at the Gloden Globes..

Ok...I think you know the color I mean...

isn't so lovely?    Tell me what you think...

Hello Ladies...

Ohh... sorry that the title is all n caps....But I am more than happy to share...that even though I love Unaisah to bits and she is sooo swamped with work until the end of the year, well we have a new designer on the block.

Yes.. I did blog about him a few days ago. Yesterday, I met him to discuss a bit more on my dress as maid of honor to my best friend. He chose a great color and matched it up with a different color lining..Cant wait to see how it turns out!

the best part is it quoted a very reasonable price.. I am so pleased..Alhamdulillah, Bless him.

He was detailed with a lot of stuff and was accommodating since I wear a tudung, he put emphasis on the cuffs and the collar.

My first fitting will be in a week's time, so will tell you all about it.

But to those who really want to do dress asap, please email me

Dress Making of sort


I have received a ton of emails with regards to Unaisah.

Yes she is a hell of a good designer. Very sweet in persona and just so eclectic and precision in work.

I think the best part of it all is that she offers reasonable prices, and not at all over top as such couture others offers.

But sadly, I know that she has been declining some requests from those who approached her..due to the fact that she is super swamped with work. We must understand that she works alone and has not assistance. Hence its quality against quantity.

I still love her though for trying to accommodate brides out there. But I want to also share....

That I have met another new designer.. yes its a he... and no we are not dating ..LOL ( perasan new york ke apa zain?!)

ok.. he is relatively very new...he has been working at some design houses...but is slowly trying to work on his own.

I made a dress with i will be a maid of honor to my best friend soon. The dress is yet done, but as soon as it is, I will tell you all about it, and perhaps for those who can't make a dress with Unaisah, well we can try him instead?

I guess, to me, I  know how some girls out there have a tight lets work around those means.
