Product Review : Daiso Silicone Mat (Brush Cleaner)


Hey hey hey!
Yes I am back with another product review and this time its something that most of you will thank me for after reading this. This will make your life so much easier so let's get started.

Introducing the..

Daiso Silicone Mat aka Power Mat.

I am a HUGE fan of Daiso and I get almost EVERYTHING I need from Daiso because its just so cheap, affordable and convenient too! 


I got this mat to help out with my brush cleaning routine and let me tell you this.. 
IT WAS THE BEST THING I EVER BOUGHT!

 I'm sure a lot of you have heard of the Brush Cleaning Glove by Sigma which cost about US$35. 
Its a glove with some little bumps, ridges, lines and other textures on the surface which are suppose to help as your wash your brush. You basically rub your brush bristles along those bumps and ridges to help your brushes get clean but seriously.. WAAAAAY to expensive for a cleaning glove IMHO.

This Silicone Mat from Daiso only cost me RM5. HOW CHEAP IS THAT! 
I'm planning to head back to Daiso to grab a couple more to stock up for my brush cleaning aid.
The only thing I didn't like about the mat is the silicone-plastic-ey smell.


 This silicone mat I bought from Daiso is pretty similar to the Sigma Brush Cleaning Glove and I think its enough to help clean my brushes. Here's a close up of the mat.
Check out the little bumps.



 How do you clean your brushes with this?
Just  dip your brush into baby shampoo (you can also use olive oil or hand soap) and start swirling it on the mat. You will see gunks of powder, cream or whatever you used earlier on the brush coming out onto the mat. Keep swirling until the brush is clean and rinse it off with water. 


How do you dry your brushes?
Place the brushes flat on a towel and leave them to dry over night.
For me, I have some brushes cases I got previously from Real Techniques and brush guards.
(You can read all bout the brushes and brush case here)


You can get your brush guards from Allure Dazzling.
Having a brush guard is good because the brush guard helps to keep the shape of the brush.


This is how I keep my brushes dry. 
This way the water from the brushes will drip down onto the towel. 
You don't want the bristles to start flaking off because of the excess water that is stuck inside the brushes. 

Overall, I am very satisfied with this mat.
Despite the smell and all everything else if fine with me.
A cheap and affordable way to keep you brushes clean and purse happy.
Doesn't look as good as the original brush cleaning glove but hey it gets the job done perfectly.

Lastly,
I will be having a giveaway soon and also apologies for the lack of updates as well.
Been busy moving to a new house and busy setting up everything with my family.

DIY : Cropped Tank Top

Cropped Top - DIY Inner Blue Top - F.O.S Ripped Denim Shorts - Miss OCD Tribal Necklace - Red City, Centre Point
Here's another DIY done by Yours Truly!

I've made all these from really BIG tshirts I found in my closet. Since I'm not gonna wear em' so why not reconstruct the shirts into something else.
Here are the steps to making your very own Cropped Tank Top!
Supplies that you need :
Big Tshirts and Scissors

Step One : Cut off the sleeves. Cut at least 1cm away from the seams.
Step Two : Cut the collar part off. Then try on the shirt!  If the sleeves are too thick cut it again til the sleeves becomes slightly thinner.
Step Three : Cut off the bottom hems off and pull the fabric on all the part that you cut till it loosens and rolls up.
Then..YOU'RE DONE! This is how mine turned out.
Really simple right?

Here's another step to make another different style for your cropped tank top!

Coral Flyer Island to Island Zipline, Pulau Sapi, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

***Updated***

Hey hey hey! Guess what?
I just had the most awesome-mess time at the Coral Flyer!
WORLD'S LONGEST AND ALSO THE FIRST ISLAND TO ISLAND ZIPLINE
IN MALAYSIA! ONLY IN KOTA KINABALU,SABAH!


2 week ago, a group of 12 bloggers and 3 friends set out on an island trip to try the Coral Flyer.
We gathered at 9am in the jetty in Jesselton Point and the best part was we managed to
convince the guy at the counter for student price tickets!

***Note that boat ride from Mainland - Pulau Sapi are at own cost.***



Kendy decided to join us for this trip!

We took a boat to Pulau Sapi first cause' that's where you get your tickets for the Coral Flyer.
Weather was really sunny that day and we decided to chill at Pulau Sapi before
trying out the Coral Flyer.



See that guy in yellow.. that's Mr.Simon Amos!
The owner of Ropeskills Sdn Bhd, Sabah Indoor Climbing Centre AND also the Coral Flyer.

Everyone had to fill in the waiver form before getting on the flying fox.

Cotton On Malaysia

T.G.I.F y'all! How was everyone's week so far?
Its already October! How times flies! Would like to apologize for disappearing for a while as I have been really busy with work,climbing and also other events.
A few days ago, I was thinking about shopping for bras and shoes somewhere around town but I didn't have the time to do so. Then Elaine suggested I shop online in Cotton On Malaysia. It never came across my mind to shop in Cotton On and I'm a huge fan of Cotton On.

Its really worth shopping with Cotton On online cause' most of the
things you see online they don't sell it here locally. All you have to do is just
sign up and you'll automatically get a 30% discount code to shop with and I kid you
not everything is super cheap! Their sales can go up to 70% and its madness!
Things can go from as low as Rm2.00 and seriously who doesn't love sales?

Product Review : Ronasutra Mineral Makeup

A month ago,
I ordered a bunch of mineral makeups fromRonasutra.
I have been a loyal user of Ronasutra for years now and I really love how their products are good for sensitive skin like mine.
Their price ranges are very affordable.

Back when I first discovered Ronasutra products ,  I was feeling a little skeptical on trying out their products but reading their infos and reviews from blogs and youtubers, I decided to give it a go.  Went on to their website and browsed around and I realized how much this brand has grown. 

This is my favourite category in the whole website. Look at all the different shades and tones they came out with. I'm currently using the one in the shade (04 Honey) which is sold out at the moment.
I just found out about their skincare line and I love the packaging. I am so looking into trying out their skincare products in the future.
I even tried out their blusher before and I really love how well it blends on the skin and how lasting it is on my cheeks. I us…

Love the red ribbon!

Sexy Pulp Lash Plumping Mascara
I love the brush! Makes it easy to apply on and it gives  that really full look if you want those volumized looking eyelashes!
 Les Plaisirs Nature Organic Raspberry Silky Body Lotion
The lotion smells really nice and fruity!  I love it cause of its non-oily texture. It doesn't have that oily and stick…
