Celebrities Spotted In Burberry

lumi loves burberryIf one is at the other parts of the world, it should be autumn now! Of course, Malaysians rarely get a chance to even put on a trench coat or thick fur clothes walking under such hot Malaysian weather (or get ourselves dripping wet in the rain these days!). But always good to see how others dressed it chic their own ways in such outfits.

Collage spotted michelle obamaSpotted here are some celebrities in Burberry womenswear, which I absolutely adore (even the first lady of US Michelle Obama is looking pretty cool).

NARS Has Arrived In Malaysia!

nars deco4 smaller

I personally love the deco of the NARS boutique! Has that very futuristic vibe to it.

nars deco1 smallerI was actually counting down the days the moment I got my invite approved by NARS from USA (via NARS Malaysia), to the opening party by this cult cosmetics brand! Blessed indeed that LUMINNEJ is a part of this special occasion. I was real excited, to say the least. Thanks a million.

nars collage1Very quickly once the registration for the guests was opened, the invited guests were slowly arriving. It was still a breeze for me to check the new boutique out upon my arrival, but MY OH MY, in less than 10 minutes, the nicely lit and decorated brand new outlet (just next to Topshop at Pavilion KL) was soon swamped with guests all dressed in BLACK, looking so chic!! Suddenly, the place was jam-packed with NARS enthusiasts (from fashion editors, actress, celebrities, beauty queens, make-up artists, hair stylists to ardent supporters of the brand and many others). Such a happening event.

So much to choose from! SOS, need help *_^

The NARS boutique is officially opened with the cake cutting ceremony

NARS Malaysia made it a point to see that it was indeed going to be the talk of the town. DJ Patricia Knudsen was pumping out some real cool house music (isn’t she looking sweet?), most could not contain their excitement any further, but tried out the products by doing colour swatching, some had their make-up done by the make-up artistes there (me included!), on standby. I was just having a great time snapping pictures away and catching up with some old friends (and making new ones ^_^)

Lovely ladies. Girls just want to have fun, when it comes to make-up. No?

Do you noticed how I went with a red lips, and after the magic touch of the make-up artist, I had a burgundy lips and a more even complexion?

The event was emceed by the lovely Bernie Chan, and some of the celebrity guests were Shafinaz, Thanuja, Natasha Hudson (and her cute daughters), Elaine Daily, Vanessa Chong, Debbie Goh, Carey Ng, Amber Chia, among others.  Like most girls I happened to chat with, we shared the same dilemma, not knowing what to buy or choose, simply because we were spoilt by so many choices of shades, textures, and lovely products!  It was truly a happening event! I  had a blast. If you want to know what I have bought, stay tuned. For you fans out there (we all know you want it!), more of NARS here or stay more up-to-date at their facebook page here. Better still, head down to Pavilion KL now to shop >_<

[Instagram] Exciting Past Few Weeks

insta collage8The past few weeks had been great! At LUMINNEJ, we were invited to a few events –  h2O+ ambassadress and ambassador/new product launch, NARS very first boutique opening at Pavilion KL. For my production work, we got a chance to work with the hip hop rapper Joe Flizzow for a music video of the latest installment of local director Brando Lee’s film, Kisah Paling Gengster. Personally, my sister-in-law came back from UK for a visit (and I got my  early X’MAS present delivered!) and we had a good time (mainly eating >_<) with the family. Everyone came together.

giftLife is short, I have learnt it the hard way recently, after losing someone I loved very deeply and dearly. I made it a point to tell myself, to do the things that make me happy, or get me one step closer to my dreams, no matter how small that step maybe, or how insignificant it may seem. The rest, the universe will take care of itself. Surround myself with good company and enjoy the time. It is always a blessing to be able to live, just another day.

We truly appreciate all the support given to LUMINNEJ here, be it our readers, our friends (near or far), or even the clients and brands that have given us the opportunity to be featured and work together with, share the joy and love for all things beautiful, through this little space of ours. Thanks to you all! Some exciting events coming up next too, and we can’t wait for it to take place. Big hugs ^_^

[Mind Bridge] The Icon of Working People (Korea)

mindbridge fall1mindbridge collage5Have been intrigued by this Korean apparel brand for a while, thought I just share it here since I visited the outlet just two days ago, browsing through the collection and their ad campaign caught my attention. I took home a copy of their “The MindBridge Post”. Though I could not understand a word of Korean, but I love the layout and the design of it.mindbridge fall14

mindbridge collage2mindbridge collage3I do feel the quality used for the apparels are pretty decent, and they do put thoughts into the design and the cut of it – pretty clean, simple, yet preppy looking and casual  chic. It’s kind of a great wear to office and work, especially for those who are in the creative industry.mindbridge fall12mindbridge collage4

mindbridge fall13The fact that their “Mindset”, business casual range, feels almost “designed and illustrated”. Am sure they would feel  pretty comfortable once you put them on. Here are some of my favourite looks. Oh, do check out more pictures via my FB page here. All pictures here are from their official website, which you can visit here. (It would help if you do understand Korean, unlike me!). Below is a behind-the-scene video from their previous winter collection (with Gong Yoo and Lee Min Jung). The brand can be found in Malaysia at The Robinsons, The Gardens Mall.mindbridge post2

[Colour Inspiration] The Colour of Serenity

Today I am feeling GREEN. Any shades of green would send one’s heart flutter to a whole new world of serenity and tranquility. They do eventually calm my nerves of going through a crazy traffic early this rainy morning here. My day wasn’t exactly rosy but now, it is better already! It’s wonderful how colours can be therapeutic after all.

Hope you have your favourite colours in life. Stay luminous and happy always *_^
