LOVE PROJECT

I've been thinking, tweeting and dreaming about making this love project into reality for quite some time now.  I've always heard celebrity say during their interview, never let go of your dreams, well this is me not letting go of my dreams...it's not what I imagined it would be yet but it is a good start.

L O V E Project 2013 will be officially launched soon and I am in the midst of doing some technical/non-technical background work at the moment. Juggling between work and passion/interest and also being a mom and a wife and no maid, is no easy job, but, I'll live.

My L O V E Project is: (please play Star Wars theme music)

YAY!!! I am proud to announce to whoever cares that this year I will be launching my Online Boutique. Honestly speaking, I think my boutique has the coolest name ever. LOL. Inspired by a Black Eyed Peas song, I think this name defines what I want my online boutique to be: Cool/Simple/Stylish/Trendy.
 My bigger goal would be to turn Fashion Beats into a brand but baby steps...let's start with something simpler first of all. 

Over these past few months, I have been working on building an online presence for Fashion Beats starting with Facebook as the main medium of advertising (it's cheap and it works...I will advertise on paid-ads on Facebook eventually but they key now is to SAVE cost as much as I can!) 

I am lucky enough to have a full support from my hubby and I poisoned his mind with my cooking and charms to become my investor. Thank you hubby...I wouldn't be able to start anything without your unconditional support and love. I love you to the moon and back and back to moon again. 

As of 7th February 2013, the domain name www.fashion-beats.com is MINE! That was not a first choice but my first choice is sold at USD$2,500.00 by GoDaddy.Com sooooo, NEXT!!! After securing the domain name I tried to come up with a trial E-Commerce site for Fashion Beats. It's still under construction and I might change the mock website completely and try a different one. Again, I am blessed to have a good friend, David which is practically a website guru to help me choose the best and develop my e-commerce website and online payment gateway. I will get it up and operating smoothly soon! I'm just quite busy with work now so most things have to be put on hold. But, here's the mock up website I did last week


If you are curious, you can go to this website FASHION BEATS . It will only be up for a month cos I only paid a one month hosting for this just to see how this website look live.

If you'd like to see my Facebook Page, you can click here and also LIKE pleaseeeee heheheh :

FASHION BEATS FACEBOOK PAGE

My plan is to officially launch Fashion Beats in May but I was thinking I can already start uploading small collections starting in March. If you are interested to purchase my carefully selected items, I will be launching my March Arrivals which is Comfy Cardigans Collections on the first week of March, hopefully. (fingers crossed).






I'm still looking for a few other style to be featured in my upcoming collection. So stay tuned guys! I hope this project will turn into something good.

And I also hope we win the RM11 million jackpot this weekend so I can retire or have the money to be the next Victoria Beckham. 


XOXO,
Ciean

P/S: I need to work on my blog layout too. It's time.

Day 5 Report

Hey my lovelies!

I just got back from lunch with my younger bro and ma niece. We had Korean food for lunch and its yummy and I stupidly spent RM18 on kimchi takeaway when I can actually get it for RM7.50 in CKS. Zzzz.

This is my 5th day on my twice a day PMC regime and the difference that I can feel is my skin is no longer oily. But, probably it can also be another contributing factors to this cos I also tried out a few other products within this 5 days.

1. HerbaLife Radiant C Booster : RM72 (image below). It is made with high quality Vitamin C and it helps minimize pores and can be used as makeup base. It's worth trying cos its not too expensive.


2. Lioele BB Cream : RM69.90 - bought at Parkson. BB cream basically helps to create a clean and natural skin tone by being absorbed into your skin.


So there it is, my two other products that I started using recently for my skin. Hope it works. 

Thinking of reviewing some of the beauty products I have used and loved so far. 

See you in my next post and here's a pic of Ben!!!  Exploiting Ben cos he's default cute with no photoshopping needed! Hehehe. It used to be cats or dogs photo before this little guy came into my life.

One Month Pure Marine Collagen Challenge

I've been searching high and low for the most affordable collagen in the market. I am quite interested to try out BeutSkin Essence after looking at tons of photo of celebrities and non celebrities before and after photos but the price is quite unacceptable when you've got milk and diapers and clinic bills to worry about. You have no idea (probably you do) how valuable RM50 can be once you have kids. BeutSkin Essence (30 pills) cost about RM210 so yeah.....NO THANK YOU (for now, I hope I can afford it in the near future)

So, I came across this Pure Marine Collagen (seaweed) and its insanely cheap! RM10 per packet. Why not, give it a try, right? Plus, I've read good reviews on it as well so its definitely worth trying. For me, it look a bit  gross (macam rambut si Medusa ni) and I imagine it being something that Rumplestilskin would have in his collection for dark magic. I was warned it's a bit smelly but to be honest it's acceptable. Not too bad. 

So I have cooked my one month supply of PMC earlier this morning and had my first PMC added orange juice. I cannot wait to see the results in a month and I will definitely share the results here. Will add a BEFORE picture after this.

Last but not least HAPPY FRIDAY lovely people. I'm gonna have a Japanese lunch with husband today and gonna go view a few apartments tomorrow. Yes, we are planning to get our own place this year. Fingers crossed and please be good to me dear bank people. 




This is Ben when he was 2 months old. I miss those chubby cheeks! 
His pictures always bright up my days I hope it will brigthen up yours too!

And They Call It Puppy Love

Puppy love (also known as a crushcalf love, or kitten love) is an informal term for feelings of love, romance or infatuation felt by young people during their childhood and even adolescence, so-called for its resemblance to the adoring, worshipful affection that may be felt by a puppy. Simple infatuation is often called a 'crush' or 'puppy love'. It commonly strikes those in the early teens or younger.

What an intro for the first post in my blog for 2013! Well, credits to Wikipedia for the definition of puppy love. LOL. Did you think I came up with that? Bah, thank you la. 

Anyways, it's not too late to wish everyone a Happy New Year 2013. Hope you had a blast during the count down. I had an awesome time with my nieces first and then the second half of it having drinks with my husband while Ben was in Tambunan with grandma and his uncles and aunties. Parents do need a break sometimes. 

Back to the topic of puppy love. Who was your first crush back when you were a child? I couldn't remember the first EVER one that I had a crush on but I certainly remember someone that I took the trouble to write a letter to, asking if he can be my "abang angkat". Well, back in my school days many years ago, this is a popular term that actually means "I'm interested". I forgot berapa banyak ABANG ANGKAT saya pernah ada and berapa banyak yang saya mau kasi jadi abang angkat. LOL. 

So back to this one guy that I made an effort to send a letter asking if he can be my abang angkat. His name is Linus. I don't remember the full name anymore now. But in my eyes (at that time) he's the most HENSUM guy in St.Martin. So I wrote a letter to him, asked my friend (she's my neighbor) which happened to be in the same class with him to pass the letter to him. By the way, did I mention I'm in Form 1 and he's in Form 5? So he got the letter and probably I was the joke of the week but he was nice enough to write back to me and said he don't mind to be my abang angkat. Ahaahahahahah. 

I've never really talked to him and but he always made my day, just stalking him from afar was enough to make me excited going to school (which is not quite the right motivation to go to school). I wonder where he is now. I doubt that I will still find him cute but that is a good memory worth blogging about.

The End.

Whats your puppy love story?
