[Instagram] So Much Have Gone By

insta collage7It’s been a while since I updated what’s been happening on my IG. Been to a great make-up session with RMK by Japanese make-up artist, Masaaki Abe himself recently, had such great fun, then bought myself a pair of colourful Zara heels! Been addicted to this Korean drama called The Master’s Sun starring the gorgeous looking So Ji Sub and cute Gong Hyo Jin (so, my Wednesday and Thursday nights are off limits, even my TV lover-hubby also stepped aside to let me have my “dating” time with the leads and their ghost friends!). I was extremely excited to also roll out LUMINNEJ very first giveaway, a collaboration with Cle De Peau BEAUTE Malaysia. (Still waiting for entry to pour in *_^) and of course, was invited to attend the inaugural local Mandarin film industry’s Golden Wau Awards 2013 ceremony. There, I met up with new talents, model cum actress Tracy Cheong, among others. It was glamourous indeed.

Am really looking forward to more new things happening with LUMINNEJ and hope to achieve more here, be it making new friends, or working with new partners to share the passion about all things beautiful. Above all, hope to connect with different people out there. A big thanks for all my readers (thought not many yet, at this point, haha but I am grateful) and hope you will stay with me, on this journey of making LUMINNNEJ a better lifestyle blog, each day, everyday, with small little steps, at a time. More on RMK here, Cle De Peau BEAUTE here and The Master’s Sun here.

As always, stay luminous and happy, always!

[Desserts] Life Is A Sweet Sensation

ImageImageLife is short, start with desserts first, I once read somewhere. From a health perspective, this is such a sinfully crazy idea! But from a life pleasure perspective, this scores high on the “happiness” scale of things in life. I am such a softy when it comes to these nice looking desserts – cakes, finger food, coffee, hot chocolate, you name, human can make them! (Beautifully, I must admit). How could one resist this temptation?

ImageImageWhen you have a gloomy  day, or things don’t seem to go your way, perhaps a nice cup of artfully crafted hot chocolate may do the trick to cheer you up a little? Or maybe making your own cup of coffee will do.

Let you be the judge. Eat at your own risk *_^

Have a happy sweet weekend ahead!

The House of Spirit

From HOME Journal Magazine Hong Kong (February 2012)

From HOME Journal Magazine Hong Kong (February 2012)

No, I am not talking about CONJURING *_^  I am looking at the home of Florence Lopez, an antique dealer who has such great taste in terms of home styling. In Saint-Germain-des-Pres, this home exhibits elegance, modernity with a touch of humour all at once, according to the HOME Journal February 2012 issue (Yes, I like back dated magazines!). According to her, furniture and works of art – provided they are quality pieces – have a heart and are living beings, almost like people (hence the title above for the article, I guess).

This chic Parisian apartment, situated in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, is located on the top floor of a building from the 18th century. Glazed and hyper luminous, it served for a long time as the atelier of a sculptor. (no wonder that creative space and bold colours). It’s definitely a space where you can let your creative juice flow! Home Journal is an inspirational interior designing magazine. More here.
