JBAD take on Coach SS19

Wednesday, December 26, 2018

The season of SS19 is finally here! I am so glad to be able to watch Coach SS19 show live in NYC with my fav people, Daphne, Ashley & Brian back in September. Coach SS19 the only show that I’ve ever been to for NYFW and it couldn’t be better. It all happened at Pier 94, walking in a dark room and the first thing that excites me was the big metal structured dinosaur. The set design somehow gave me the impression of the movie Mad Max.Stuart Vever’s SS19 collection got inspired by his trip to Santa Fe ( in New Mexico ).

“It’s about assembling and reconstructing the craft and the spirit of the American look; exploring and playing with these salvaged heirlooms and placing them in a new context..” ( credit Vogue UK)

I am totally in love with the collection. I got them to pick and here’s our fav look and fav items that we would want to style with.

I love all looks tbh. Picked this one because of the flowy long dress and fringe leather vest in all white. Something I would want to wear.

The two items that I would want to own are this long dress and the leather jacket. I would totally wear the long dress for my wedding lol. As for the leather jacket, it just couldn’t go wrong with anything.

Brian’s fav look is this long army green parka jacket with the one piece tracksuit. He love how the colour combination compliment the whole outfit without overshining the individual item strong identity.

His fav item from the collection will be this oversized sweater with ripped detailings on the shoulder and the logo printed pants that shouts strongly on the brand image, to him, logo print is definitely a must have.

Daphne picked this look because of the ruffled details on the shirt and the leather joggers.

First fav item daphne chose will be the shoes. Feminine yet practical. She will pair with shorts just to highlight the design of the shoes. Another one is this bag. It can be used as a dinner/party bag and it can also be used for casual outings. It can be paired with different outfits, very versatile yet stylish.
You can totally tell what’s Ashley’s fav look from the collection.

Ashley loves this dress in particular because it reminds her of a ancient princess dress. She would totally rock them in these boots as well. I mean, how can you not love these pieces! Let me know what your thoughts on Coach SS19 looks! Tell me your fav look top!

The perfect xmas gift.

Updated : Menstrual Cup

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Finally the mighty menstrual cup post is here. 

I asked on my ig stories asking what's best decision you ever made. Here I'm telling you one fo my best decision I ever made - using a menstrual cup.  

Last year I was scrolling facebook and watched a random video of a taiwanese girl teaching how to use a menstrual cup. Just like you, I was super curious how to stuff a friggin' menstrual cup into our va-jay-jay. That thing seems solid af. She made it so simple by showing how to use with her hands as a demo. ( NO VAGINA WAS SHOWN ) Unfortunately I couldn't find the video now.

My curiosity leads me to look for menstrual cup brands and places that sells them. Apparently our pharmacies don't sell them and the only way to get them is through the Internet. After researching, I decided to get one from the brand, Intimina. Mainly because they are the only legit brand selling on Lazada. I got their lily cup compact for RM280. And I just found out it's only USD $29.95 ( RM130ish??) their site?!!? I guess I was really wanting to receive it asap else I could have bought it from their official site. 

With the right care and cleaning, one menstrual cup can use up to years. I recommend to buy a good brand because I think it's more safe to use??? I saw some as cheap as RM12???? I think it's better to spend on a good one than buying something that might harm your vagina. 

I started using it on my cycle during August 2017. Tbh, I didn't fell in love with it on my first time. I struggle a little trying to stuff that thing in, there's leakage and discomfort because I didn't do it right. After the 2nd or 3rd time using it, I finally understand what is the real #lifechanging. Unlike tampons, menstrual cups feels like nothing inside you. I literally asked all my girlfriends to try, so far only my sister Ashley has converted because the others still couldn't brain :

1. Disgusting? 

Some of them think that stuffing a menstrual cup into their vagina is disgusting. Or maybe it's the blood that is disgusting? Vagina is part of your body, menses came out from your body, so there's nothing disgusting about it. No one is judging you if you don't judge yourself. I think pads are more disgusting as it smells and packed with bacterial. How I wish we can start educating girls who just started their period to use menstrual cup. I know it's not easy cuz some people still thinks menstrual blood is disgusting and touching their own vagina is disgusting. But imagine how great is it if we can save them from staining their school uniform and having cleaner toilets?!?

2. Afraid to put it in.

The silicon material they used to make a menstrual cup is very gentle and soft to fit your vagina. Good ones use really high quality and it’s free from bacterial. You can't feel a thing if you know how to use it. All you need is to practice.

I found a good tutorial online :

3. Mafan. 

I usually take out and wash my menstrual cup every 3-4 hours on the first day of my period. I’ll use panty liners on the heavy flow days just incase. Great thing that our toilets usually have hand bidets. After the heavy flow days, you can leave the menstrual cup inside you up to 12 hours for the rest of the days. I can do it, I'm sure you can . How different can our vagina be right?

Basically you can save a lot of money from not buying pads and tampons. On a side note, you can tell everyone you want to save the earth by stop using pads and tampons heh. 

Okay hope this will convert you into a menstrual cup user. Please share your experience too so people can read them through comments!


Updates 18/10 :
Omg! I was contacted by Ellie from team Foreo telling me that apparently Intimina is their sister brand! (That explains a lot about their medical-grade silicone). They are so happy to work out on a discount coupon with free shipping for those of you who are planning to get one!

Click here and check out by entering coupon LCUP2018 ( starts 20th Oct, ends 31st Dec 2018 ) to get 10% discount site wide & free shipping!

Also I got some questions about : 
1. Do you take it off when you pee / Does it drop off while you pee :
Answer is NO. 
It is pretty secure in your vagina unless you didn't insert it correctly.

2. How do you wash your cup outside if there's no bided ?
I do sneak into toilets for handicap or I'll bring a bottle of water. 

3. Why did I pick Lily Cup Compact?
I just love the idea of the collapsible cup. I'm planning to get another one just to try out.

4. Notes for beginners? 
Cut your fingernails on the first few times using the cup. Mainly because you might hurt your skin while pinching the firm trying to insert. 

GRWM in Jaipur ( Proposal Day.)

Monday, October 8, 2018

It has been a week since I got proposed! I guess I’m not going to get over it until my wedding day. I haven’t start planning but I’m pretty sure I’m going to be really busy next year.

Anyway, this was my make up on the day I got proposed. I didn’t want to put a lot of make up on my Jaipur trip. I wanted to keep it “less is more” vibe for the whole trip. Thank god, like thank god I did La Mer’s famous 8 minute hydrating mask that morning. My skin was flawless for the whole day.

Here’s what I used :
La Mer cleansing micellar water
La Mer treatment lotion hydrating mask
La Mer soft cream
Estée Lauder double wear foundation
Bobbi Brown stick foundation
Tom Ford Beauty shade & illuminate
Tom Ford Beauty brow sculptor ( Taupe )
Glossier Lidstar ( Cub )
Tom Ford Beauty boys & girls ( 31 Lukas )

Hope you enjoyed!

I'm engaged.

Monday, October 1, 2018

I'm engaged. 

I'm just as surprised as everyone else. I'm still trying to digest the fact that the man I've been dating for 5 years is now my fiancé. Trust me, I look chill af but deep down I'm overwhelmed with what happened. 

So the important question : how did the proposal happen?

On 9.28.2018, the third evening in Jaipur, I just finished a shoot with Mandy and we headed back to the lounge to meet everyone else. We chilled for awhile and headed back to our rooms to get changed for dinner. I thought I was a little overdressed in my Dior sample dress so I decided to change into something comfy, like a sportswear top kinda comfy. Everything went pretty normal during dinner and then came the dessert that we DID NOT ORDER. I thought it was free, I mean c'mon no one is going to be suspicious about free desserts. Then I saw this platter with candles coming towards us, I thought maybe they knew Han Pin's birthday is coming or something. 

I tilted my head, looked at my dessert and it says " Will You Marry Me." and it followed by the other platter with a ring sitting on it.

 "WTF. Are you serious?!?!?!?!" was my first reaction and I started tearing. Daphne had no idea about this proposal so she was in deep surprise and started crying. Brian and Leng Leng were the ones that helped him to plan this entire thing. They wanted to surprise Daphne as well. Her reaction was priceless. Mandy had 0 idea too. 

Han Pin calmed me a little and gave me a little speech, short and sweet. ( in chinese but I translated into english.)

"Baby, we have been together for 5 years, I think it's time for us to move on to another stage. We might not be at our best now, but let's work together to become better for each other." 

We walked to the outdoor area because the view is better lol. 

Well, you already know the answer.

The moment felt so unreal. Tbh, it is not easy to plan a surprise for me because 90% of the time I'll figure it out. Hence, I'm really proud of him and everyone else who make this happen.

On a side note : He kept this ring for almost 3 months without me finding out 😭 

We both would like to thank you all for the wishes. I've read every single 1.5k +++  comments and private messages. I was touched when I saw readers who have been following me for almost 10 years writing in to tell me how genuinely happy they are for me. Thank you for being around and growing up with me. I love you all. I guess now we have a lot plannings to do...

9.28.2018 - Engaged.
