NOTD: Summer Challenge - Sunshine. :D

Hi! As some of you might know from reading my 2nd last post, I'm on Facebook! So what did I do 1st thing after signing up? Joined in on Purple Crumpet Fairy Challenge group of course!! :D Yay! I'm starting the Summer Challenge on the 7th day because I miss the first 6 days.. >.< Oh well.. So, yesterday's challenge was Sunshine and this is what I did~

 these were taken with flash

 and these were taken without flash.

I used the sponging technique on all of my fingers except my ring finger. Polishes used were ChG- Happy Go Lucky and Color Combos- White. Then I drew on the sun with black acrylic paint and a really small brush. :) What do you think of this mani? I personally like the sun! ^_^ Thanks for dropping by! :D

Vanity Trove (Beauty Box) June 2012 *PIC HEAVY*

Hello! Today's post is on my Vanity Trove Beauty Box subscription for the month of June. :) May Mother's Day Vanity Trove was exclusively only for Singaporean residents. :( Oh well, at least we Malaysian's get to have our June Trove before it's actually June. :) This month's trove had some awesome goodies inside! Let's have a look~

This month's Trove suffered a little from the handling & shipping process even though it was wrapped securely with bubble wrap. :( 

Aahh.. the Goodies~ :D The inside of the box smelled divine! I'm guessing it was from the shampoos. 

The front & back look of the little 'envelope' magazine inside. :)

First up! Essentials Damage Care Shampoo in Rich Premier (orange bottle) and Nuanced Airy (pink bottle). Both of them smells absolutely wonderful! They are about 80ml each.

Here we have DirtyWorks Think of England Bath Soak & Go Balmy! Berry Lip Balm. I love me some lip balms as I don't usually wear any lipstick when I'm out so this is just perfect for me! :D

 Here's a closer look on the sample size BB Mineral Cream from Ettusais. The top 3 pictures above shows the pamphlet that came along with the BB Mineral Cream. Aren't those babies in the pamphlet cute!? >.< 

 And then we have the Enavose Essencious Invisible Sunbrella UV Mist with SPF 45. According to the box,  'This advanced invisible sunscreen offers broad-spectrum UVA and UVB SPF 45 protection in a convenient micro-vapourised mist that applies evenly and dries instantly on skin.' The 2nd picture shows a protection cap to avoid any unwanted or accidental spray when in the bag I assume. :) Nice.. As I'm always dumping things in my bag, this is very convenient for me. :)

 Also included is BVLGARI's Omnia Coral EDT. This is definitely a scent I can see myself getting next time. :D It's a floral-fruity EDT of tropical Hibiscus and juicy Pomegranate. 

 TheBodyShop's Shiso Leaf Whitening Cream sampler. 

Act-Q-Patch Odourless Herbal Patch for aching muscle relief.  

Lastly, Erabelle Woven Silk Face Mask (Whitening/Rejuvenating). :) Doesn't the packaging looks gorgeous? I almost didn't want to open it up. :P

And there you have it, June's Vanity Trove. I must say, I'm delighted with what I have in my trove and I hope it will continue to be like that. Thanks for looking loves! xoxo! :D

Facebook! & NOTD: Skin Food Pedicure Sparkle in #20

Good morning lovelies!! So let's talk about Facebook for awhile.. I was on facebook a few years back (my personal one) but have decided to de-activate it early this year because of the constant problems that were arising from my then boyfriend. And all was going great, the problems subsided, there were no more problems regarding facebook. But then, I see all you lovely bloggers having facebook and nail art challengers and swaps and the lots regarding nail polishes going about only in facebook, I got kinda left-out. :( So, I then decided to open up a new facebook account but only for nail related stuffs (and the occasional crafts). Yay! Why didn't I think of this earlier! Anyways, this is to announce that .little green heart. is now on Facebook. I've just set up an account and have no friends there. If you'd like, and have Facebook yourself, please kindly add me up here: .little green heart. facebook page or you can click on the FB badge I add on my sidebar. Thank you! I would love to get to know you more there! :D

On to the NOTD.. I've been on a green polish streak lately. :) Today's post is on Skin Food Pedicure Sparkle in #20. It's a somewhat sea green foil color. I got this from a dear friend of mine when she decided to de-stash some of her polish. :) Application was smooth and dreamy. I didn't have any pooling or dragging issue with this polish, so YAY! Let's get on to the swatches shall we. :)

The top 4 pictures above were taken inside the office and the bottom 2 were taken under sunlight. :) What do you think of this color? Honestly, this color rocks! :D Thanks for dropping by! 

NOTD: MIKO Professional Nail Lacquer in #159

Hey Loves! Today I have on MIKO Professional Nail Lacquer in #159 which is a mossy green frost. This nail lacquer hails from Korea which is a present I got from my Aunt during her last visit there. :) Yay! Don't you just love random kindness? Anyways, I've always steered off frost polishes because of the streaks you get when painting them but I've since fallen in love with them! I did try to paint them very carefully as to not get too much of the streaks and I must say the end product was great. Being as it was a green coloured polish didn't hurt as well. :D

Do you know of any pink frost polish? I'm currently looking for one. :P So if you do, drop me a link below. Thanks for dropping by! Until tomorrow. xoxo!

NOTD: Essence Princess Prunella + Zoya Chloe. :)

Alright-y! Today's mani is on Essence Princess Prunella that my cousin has kindly bought for me the last time she came back home. Essence polishes are available somewhere along the Bukit Bintang road. (Sorry, I totally forgot where it is exactly) >.< Anyways, I will always ask my cousin to help get some Essence goodies for me whenever she comes back home to KK. :D

Princess Prunella is an awesome brown polish which has a purple tint to it on the bottle. Alas, it didn't really transfer much on the nails except under certain angles but that too doesn't really show unless you look at it closely. But, it is an interesting color and I don't have any dupes of this in my collection which is always a plus! :D After wearing this for about a day, I decided to top it off with Zoya- Chloe. The result is amazing! I love how the blue flakie pops out! What do you guys think of this combo? :D

NOTD: Geomatric Dots. :)

Good morning dear readers,

How are you guys? I'm down with the flu and fever for 3 days now.. I'm still at home sick at the moment.. ~_~ ugh.. Anyways, I did do some thing on my nails to cheer me up. :) Here they are:

For base, I used ChG - Re-freshmint and dotted the dots with Black Acrylic Paint. :) Have I mentioned that I love re-freshmint? I just got this a few weeks back and it's my favorite mint! I don't think I've tried other brands yet. Anyways, let me know in the comment section what your favorite mint color is. Thanks for dropping by! :D

Vanity Trove (Beauty Box) April 2012. :)

*edit: the price for each trove has been change to MYR$60 due to their current shipping cost.

Hi all! I've got something special to show you guys today. As some of you might not know, I've been searching high and low on the internet on Beauty Box subscriptions in Malaysia. This has been going on for about a year or so after seeing so many Beauty Boxes available only to US and Australian residents. :( (Those we're the days when I wish I was living in the States). So being discouraged, I stopped searching, and then something awesome happened! I accidentally saw a post on Vanity Trove while I was searching for the Nicki Minaj Mini Collection swatches. YAY!!

Vanity Trove is a Singapore based company that brings in a surprise beauty box every month for a fee of SGD$30 or MYR$60. Included inside are beauty products that are mostly of sample size that are worth between SGD$100 - SGD$200. Since this is the only Beauty Box subscription that delivers to Malaysia, I took the chance and plunge myself into the beauty arena. I have to tell you that I'm somewhat of a go-natural girl. I don't use make-up on a daily basis, not even concealers, moisturizers, eye-liner and the lots. O_O The thought of using make-up hasn't really caught up to me yet. That's why I think Vanity Trove can somehow ease my way into it. All-right-y then, on to the pictures! Be warn, this post is definitely pic heavy. :D

 I just love how simple the box is! :) check out the pink handle ribbon

the front and back look of the mini vanity mag included in the box

finally! the goodies! :D

Made in Japan and described from their website as to 'Cover dark circles and puff eyes and this specific shade is designed to brighten your eye area.'

NUXE Paris products. (Clockwise from the top) 
Multi-Usage Dry Oil Golden Shimmer (Face, Body, Hair), 
Hand & Nail Cream (For dry & damaged hands), 
Fondant Body Scrub (w/ almond & orange flower petals, botanical exfoliants), 
Face Cleansing & Make-Up Removing Gel (for dry & sensitive skin)

Style Aromatherapy PRO HairCare with Dead Sea Minerals that helps to revitalize hair growth. I must say, it smells DIVINE! :p

 skin inc (SKINC) Reinforce Caremide Serum is said to solve 'roughness; sensitive or sensitised skin; dryness; eczema.' Taken from their website.

this here is the Braphy Lim Plumper. It's stated as #04 which is an almost nude mauve color with shimmer. What's so interesting about this lip plumper is that it has a small mirror at the back of the bottle and LED light when you push the little button on top of the cap. :D Doesn't it look cool! Definitely handy when in dark places (e.g. in the car at night, in a night club , etc. hehehe). Anyways, there's a little swatch of the color on my hand which is how it looks like IRL. :D

and voucher's for some awesome Singaporean blogshops. :D nice!

Well, that's that. I haven't tried many of the products yet but I'm positively satisfied with them. As this was my first ever beauty box, I'm anxiously waiting for what they have in store for next month! :D Thanks for reading through this post loves! :D
