Milly Bridal UK | How to Slay like a Queen | Sponsored

Ahhh yass! The word “Queen” as understood by the Traditionalist/Silent Generation (born in 1945 and yesteryears) and the Baby Boomers (born in 1946 to 1964) to be the female royal highness and the most empowering woman that is still and forever has the most privileged piece in a chess set that able to move in any direction along a rank, file, or diagonal on which it stands. Not to forget, the stylized figure of a queen in a playcard deck was developed later in the 1377 by the Germans, being abandoned by them and permanently picked up by the French in the 1500s.

The evergreen, Queen to be the one of the greatest bands of all time. A great era were experienced by our moms and dads from the Baby Boomers to Gen X and memories of the legendary peak of 1975 Bohemian Rhapsody, the 1982 Under Pressure will never fade.

The Millennials (known as Gen Y; Born 1977 to 1995) throughout the Centennials (most popular by the term Gen Z/iGen; Born 1996 onwards) with highly advanced internet access and social medias engagement, the word ”Queen” is no longer acting like an exclusive monarch (except for Queen Bee-yonce!) related however, it became of a more casual jargon or meme as we definitely described them as the urban language we spoke off every day. According to the urban dictionary, the word "Queen" it is more likely in description of someone who is really flamboyant, applause-worthy, fierce women (or a really, really gay guy) and this will be the main topic of my article this time.

Less is more, we hold to that word but would still have the motivation to be fancy af. Fancy but classy is also a major thin line that have affected us all, we may think our appearance to be fine but actually seen as a train wreck by others. That’s a BIG NO NO! This problem was constantly emphasized especially during formal events such as weddings, dinner and proms that definitely we wanted to SLAY and win over the wh*re who stole your man, indeed still have a beautifully mindful soul of the goddess, Grace Kelly.


Finding for an outstanding dress for a Queen maybe a handful and quite pricey, also searching for a dress online might be hopeless and able catch out to your anxiety over a silver lining result whether the dress will be completely well tailored or being an imitation disaster.  A website known as MillyBridal UK was established in 2007 and still active in the formal fashion-garment industry. A variety of gowns and dresses categorized down from bridal wear, mother of the bride dresses, prom garments to platform shoes, they are definitely one heck of a cutting-edge online retailer.

Wedding Dresses UK 2018

Their endeavor is unique comparing to other competitors, offering glamorous gowns at a lower price point had been the niche area of keeping their business sustainable until today. Affordably high fashion pieces with the prices ranging from £96 to £300 may be seen big for a number but imagine closely for spending less than £100 for a prom dress or spending only £250 for a ball gown wedding dress of your dream (that may cause your whole month paycheck to get from a designer store).  Not to forget that fabric color customization is also provided in this store.

If you're like me, and have been paying close attention to what's been trending on the fashion department this year especially the ideas of wearing mermaid wedding dresses — let me show you a good indication of what to expect from this store.

Album Review | Carthreena - Breathe For Tomorrow

Yass the kween is back again after going on and off again with the blogging sphere and literally writing the introduction of this entry while listening to Nightwish considering the title above is definitely nothing to do with them.

Okay I'll stop and continue with the main cause of this acknowledged entry.

I'm here with my brain for Carthreena!

You kids will ask me "WHAT THE F*CK IS CARTHREENA?"

Well, read!!! You lazy younger generations with iPhones.

Disclaimer: Please note that I’m doing this on a VERY VERY PROFESSIONAL basis. Every comments and critics are based on what people want to listen, their demands and etc. Also please note that I'm very critical at finding flaws and NEVER BIAS and I have run through this whole album thoroughly multiple times.

Cover view of this album.

For not judging the book or album by its covers, oh well I do because women judge. I love the injected artform essence of totemic insect which is a bee in this case as I believe so was truly inspired by the ancient rock art by the ancient cultures in Europe and the Near East which sometimes referred as the "goddess".

Overview of this album.

This excellent nu-cultural concept artwork album named as "Breathe For Tomorrow" consist of 12 tracks with 7 English songs, 4 Malay song and 1 short instrumental track.  The explained genre is post-hardcore and I agree for its fast moving energetic music that actually emphasize a greater degree of creative expression when you're moving from track to track.  

Reminiscing down the memory lane.

When I first ran through this album it reminded me one of my favourite albums of all time, Yellow Card-Ocean Avenue album from 2003.  Ok chill, I know both of these albums have obvious distinct genres but somehow they both have the similar energy.  Try ignoring the sliver lining of these genres and imagine replacing the violins in YC with the strings from Carthreena, they would be quite similar.  Not bad kind of similar but GOOD!

Listen to YC's Way Away, and Empty Apartment and you will get what I meant.

Based on the article on 2007 quoted by Jeff Terich on Treblezine, "the originality of post-hardcore emerge from the era after hardcore's heyday (notably, the '80s), and most bands within the genre got their start in hardcore. However, the twist is instead of sticking to its rigid constraints, these artists expanded beyond power chords and gang vocals, incorporating more creative outlets for punk rock energy." On a more casual term it is a genre of music formed when people in the hardcore scene got tired of hardcore's limited form (Geoff, 2005).

This 40 minutes album have various styles of music that won't make you feel bored if you are a true post-hardcore fan.  The songs arrangements from track 1 to 12 is considered very well planned and excellent as they are very well matched and compliments the sequences. A friendly album hack is that they shouldn't be too high up with non-stop catchy music or the other way around,  it should be an added variance to one another and association of fast and slow moving sounds.

Lyrics-wise linguistically are very easy to understand not to much metaphoric elements, they can easily reach the emotions of all fans and listeners.  Remember when most of us were younger (back then for example the old days of Simple Plan) and there's a song or an album that was very entertaining and magically catch up to our pleasure, well this is how you can get it in 2018. Carthreena gets them to your soul!

In terms of instruments, there's nothing to talk about.  My ears heard fascinating signature s of post-hardcore; the slow melodic minor scale and melodic metal-core style rhythms added to bind with some progressive elements.  Since I'm not a musician (unless calling a person that plays 4 months of intense ukulele a musician, then I'm still not one) nothing much I can comment about the technicalities but as a listener, most important is that they are perfectly tight and harmonizes within all aspects of the instruments.  Kudos for the outstanding effort.  And for the vocals, how the f*ck did you managed to reach that high notes? Incredible af!!

My genuine reaction to this masterpiece was quite pleasant.  I don't often listen to post-hardcore genres but I'm confident to say that this album able to make me have fun by listening to it.  They have this my so-called made up word is the spirit-goosebumps, when you listen to the whole album, you feel this energetic spirit came on your surroundings like a force-field globe that protects you (not Wakanda) for the whole 40 minutes and that spirit energy made your senses tingling with goosebumps because you are so well entertained by it.


My most fav song in this album is Malaysia,  a very catchy anthem of patriotism and the realities of things that you are aware of being a true Malaysian.  Basically I'm a well known as the least patriotic values on earth however that song did change my perception towards with holding my nation and very proud to sing along to this.  Guys, this is the song that you should listen to while waiting for your turn to cross out the ballot on this upcoming general election.  I'm not even joking!

The song Remembrance has its own touchy feely amusements for people who's having a handful of breakup sentiments just like I Will Stay by We Are The Fallen and when Dean's vocals appeared on Streetlights, there were fireworks in my head.

Should you buy this album?

Absolutely YES!  Even if your are not a fan of this genre, you should still get it for yourself because of the new revelation of post-hardcore music that you should experience yourself and just because they are truly awesome!

The start of a brew-tea-ful addiction.

As you can read on the title above.  I'm a fully converted tea-addict.

Why? Because there was once upon a night where I wasn't thinking and I had finished a little bit of iced caramel latte left on the table.  I had it and I cannot sleep the whole night.  And there was my regret...

As I was searching the internet for unique tea blends (and companies) that operates locally and found TeaBirdTea. I purchase a couple of travel packs to give myself a try for their blends.  Being a tea noob, I'm very dumb at making teas and my taste buds can't seem to accept the taste of the teas I made.  So I reached out to their team for some tips and had a very positive responses from Ashleigh the MD of Balcony Bloomer (the company).  Such a sweetheart she even sent out a tin for me to give it a try (oh well shall I say #spons lol!).  

Later that week, I discovered the perfect recipe using my knight and shining armor.  

Not to worry lemons doesn't kill the taste at all, they actually made it better.  However, they do made the taste a little less strong, which actually suits my taste buds.  

So I guess it would be nice if I share to you guys my simple recipe, hopefully they'll made your day just like mine.

Thanks for hanging out here, I'll see brew-all later byeeee

 I'm sorry I know it's February alreadyyyyyy T_T

Let's forget about that and rewind back to the first day of 2018 and my new year's resolution was to buy myself a freakin' Nintendo Switch!!!  Yes, I achieved my resolution just about the first week of 2018 and I got the whole year not regretting anything.

I'm to lazy to type, so here's a very mute kind of unboxing.  For the people who's wondering what they will get in the box.  Note that I got a bundle switch, so that explained the physical copy of Super Mario game.   

Let's get the excitement begin shall we...

Drum roll!!!
The first layer you'll see when you open the box.

Accessories (including game) in the second layer.

#notspons | Tea Obsession OMG!!!

 Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored neither a review.  Just sharing what I love to you guys out there.*

As I'm looking forward to 2018 meaning I'm going to be 25 next year, feeling older I would rather venture into something that I never ever thought of.  TEAS!!!  However, I have never ever made a good cup of tea tho because I have no idea how much sugar would make the tea taste good.  How bad it turned out I would just drink it up and let go...

So I went up to my dear neighbor's online store.  She sells (sea shells) basically organic beauty skin products and as I supposed a tea enthusiast herself, she's selling teas also.  Can get em in a normal packet or in bulk.  I ordered earlier this week but I finally got to start on the tasting.  Since they're having a Year End Sale, I guess this is my chance to spoil myself.  

Literally I bought a pack of dried lemon tea to detox off all my sins, whole collection of flower tea samples since I'm surveying the best for me to get in bigger pack and a very cute and insanely durable lazy teapot/brewer tumbler.  My taste buds gonna be lit af!!!

So here's my so called creative photoshoot I've done this morning, the reason I had to wait until the weekends for an excellent morning lighting.

Shop for teas here:

And yes got this Limited Edition from her also.  I would have to tell you like million times, it's insanely durable.  Just in case if anyone ask and yes I'm soooo in love with this tumbler. 

Okay byeeee.

#StandTogether | Kerinting pon jadi isu ke?

Scroll2 FB skali aku tertengok video ni.  Anyone yang tak kenal Arwind, he's a social media influencer because he is too awesome being Mak Cik Roast-mah speakingsss about shit that are wrong with school exam papers.  Entertaining but he has a deep backstory about his life.

In my case: 

Well apparently having a different kind of hair (straight vs curly) also kene mock wei during primary school, kau different sikit je confirm mesti kena having natural curls for me during primary was a huge struggle.

Although pasal rambut je pon, tapi kau tak tau drama sekolah rendah. Kejujuran kanak2 adalah perkara yang amat menyakitkan beb. 

*sbb tu aku x suka cakap dgn budak2 sbb selain drpd dianugerahkan dengan mulut yang lancang, tangan aku juga boleh terbang*

Bila tanya mak aku, dia cakap rambut cantik special tak semua orang dapat rambut curly (obviously jawapan mak sendiri, kau buruk buruk nak mampos pon dia tetap cakap cantik)..bila hadap cikgu aku asik kene label "Tak kemas". 
Paling best sorang cikgu ni, suruh pakai minyak rambut. Tolong eh semua, rambut kerinting dgn minyak rambut is forever ENEMY. Please educate yourself first ok.

Tu lah cerita budak sekolah rendah kan, masih kecil masih licin.. Tak tau gamaknya bila dah akil baligh bulu kat situ sama kerinting je dgn rambut aku HAHAH!!!🖕

Tapi yang apa2 pon yg kuat mocking semua tu Melayu while I'm genetically LOTS OF MIX.

So I win.

Pranking my mom with fake earplugs.

Please excuse my huge ass nose.  It's in the genetics.
So I was nearly murdered by my mom.  

Long story short, I always have a thing with piercings but I was never allowed to do more other than the normal on earlobe ones.  Yes shocking, a goth with normal piercings.  The fact that I'm afraid of my mom and possible infectious puss actually made my rebellious spirit to chill on that part.

As I'm an adult now (but still scared of mom), buying shit is not longer a problem because I have my own salary and no one ever gonna question about what I purchased, so my creative spirit was like, if you cannot rip out your earlobe, why don't you fake one?

When I saw the fake ear pieces online, I was like;
Credits to Google
So I bought em and got em!!!  And then texted mom *evil grin*

P/s: I don't have the texting screenshot but I'll try to get you guys through this lol

Me: Hi mom! Look!!! Nice ayyy??? *sends photo*
Not the actualy image of me throwing shit to mom but same thing..same thing*
Mom: *trying to control her shit* Yeah nice, but what's is that?

When you showed your mom something, and she saw it and she still ask what is it, you know you gonna get yo ass beat up right? Yeah that's how it was.

Me: Well, I took a time off from the office to get my ears done just now.  You know earplugs.   

Mom: What's earplugs? 
*she knows but it's like a response from her deep denial* 

Me: *actually sent this photo*

Me: Seee...earplugs!!!  Cool right?????  I had it done just now on 1 ear first, then gonna get another one done later.  Mine is quite small coz it's for newbies, they rather not cut it big tho.

Mom:  Stop that shit! You are going to go the hospital and sew that hole back and don't you dare cut the other ear!!!  Stop being stupid and destroying your ears!!!  *and etc.*

Me: But it's nice, I like it :D

Mom: No! Sew it back!!!

Me: Mom, chill...I just got these today...
Mom: WTF?!

Me: I had to prank you tho

Mom: I will actually take you back to that place and sew it you know!

K Thanks Baiiii

My Go-To Makeup Kit | Office

Hello again, it's me the morbidly lazy blogger who actually thought of quit blogging forever.  Seriously it's a fcking struggle you guys hahahaha...  

However, there's another hardcore struggle for me tho that is waking up extra early for work just because I need to do my makeup.  Yes the first 6 months into the job of course you still got the hype tho but now, bitch, I'd just wake up, shower and contemplating to kill myself for the next 8 hours.

The first 23 years of my life, I have never thought of having a go-to makeup kit would be a necessity because I have never been this tired and my face have not constantly breaking out as much as it is now but now I finally get it why Benefit selling little makeup kits although it is mainly targeted for travel purpose but as for me it is office worthy.  Apparently I have a lot of makeup in my collection and adding more shit would make me feel guilty to the old ones since I'm not using them that often.  (DEFINITELY BUYING MORE MAKEUP THE SECOND I GET OUT OF THE HOUSE)

Considering I have tons of crap in my vanity, I just had a mini beauty bin journey and shortlisted all my stuff that I might throw out but they still perform well on my face.  So here you go;

Most importantly keeping it minimal in my pouch

Finally it's here!!! | Colorpop Old VS New swatch

Remember like a month ago I wanted to make a swatch of my old and new Colourpop liquid lipstick (matte and metallic)?  

So here you go;

 #colourpop #ultramatteliquidlipstick #ultrametallicliquidlipstick #lax #tulle #embellish #zebra

Their eyeliner pot still sucks.
