Bye-Bye Belly Fat

Ever since I tried Marie France Bodyline, I have been addicted! In a good way of course.

My friends tell me that I don’t need such treatments because I am already slim. The thing is, it’s not just a matter of slimming down. It’s also about maintaining my overall body fat index, skin texture, skin firmness. Ever since I gave birth to Shahmeer, I feel really insecure about my stomach area. The skin texture totally changed, it has stretch marks (until my upper thighs) and of course, the why-so-difficult-to-get-rid-of belly fat. Even with exercise and maintaining a good diet, it just won’t go away. So I need treatments like Marie France Bodyline to help get those muscles taut and toned back faster.

It’s been quite a few times since I paid a visit to Marie France Bodyline and the result has been really really good. Even my hubby notices it. I've lost a few inches of waistline and the skin around my tummy is smoother and firmer.

Other than the effective treatments, I love Marie France Bodyline because the staffs are very friendly and the ambiance is very relaxing too. The choice of keeping the interior to a wood theme makes it feel more like a cozy massage place instead of a beauty 'lab'. I keep on saying this because I think it really matters! :)

After trying many types of treatment based on the their consultant’s suggestion, I love Pro-Freeze the most.

Pro-Freeze is a treatment that uses fat-freezing technology to safely and effectively remove unwanted fat cells. It exposes the fat cells to an extreme cold temperature, causing them to be frozen and degenerated. These degenerated fat cells will be eliminated from the body via our body’s own metabolism system and can permanently remove up to 25% of the unwanted fat in a single treatment session, thereby reducing the thickness of the fat layer.

The entire treatment takes about 45-60 minutes. The first few minutes feels very cold but then it feels okay afterwards. It also feels rather funny because you can feel the strong suction from the machine, but a satisfying kind of feeling because you can feel your fat getting 'killed' heheh.

In this video below, I went for another treatment called Body Lift Therapy (BLT) using the Wellspa machine, which is more for skin tightening and cellulite reduction.

Stay tuned for more Marie France Bodyline updates, girls!:)

You know..

I think, I have reached a stage in life where I am oddly just so numb about things that upset me. I choose to stay quiet, take a deep breath, exhale, and eat ice cream. I have made peace with the fact that life can be so hard and unfair at times, and that's okay. I just need to toughen up and be grateful about many other things.

She's Just A Blogger

I attended an event where many fashion people were present. Fashion people consists of many types. People from the fashion media, fashion stylists, fashion designers, fashion retail players, bloggers. Although I keep telling people I'm not necessarily a fashion blogger but more of "just" a "blogger" (because I talk about other things too other than fashion, I think), but the label sticks so okay, I'll take that "fashion blogger" label.

But anyway, my point was, among the fashion people, I often feel that fashion bloggers sort of get this weird vibe, or even weird looks, from the other groups. Not everyone, of course. Just some of them. It's like, "who are you? You know nothing about fashion". It might be true. I know little about fashion. All I know is that I like to dress up and all. And I get it. People like me, or most of us fashion bloggers, did not study fashion. We don't have a strong fashion background. But does that make us "wrong" for being included in the fashion world nowadays?

To boast a little, I do think fashion bloggers deserve all the attention we are luckily getting at the moment. We are directly helping the fashion industry, you see? We tell people what label we are wearing on our #OOTD posts, and that significantly helps designers - particularly new ones - to get their brand out there. We represent "real people" who actually wear the fashion items you other fashion people style and display on the runway or fashion spreads. We wear fashion for real in our daily lives, not just for show. We voluntarily promote fashion. Isn't that something?

I just think that regardless how one ends up in the fashion circle, no one deserves to be discriminated. We all play our different roles with one end objective: to spread the love for fashion! If you still hate us bloggers, I think you're just jealous hehehe..

Makeup On, Makeup Off!

This was my last week's look for Good Housekeeping magazine photoshoot, and I chose to do my own makeup...:)

Anyway, I love makeup but at the same time, I realize I’m a beauty slob. The laziest part for me is the part where I have to remove my thick makeup after an event. And because the makeup is rather thick, I have to clean it with so many step-by-step products. Buuuuuuut honestly, I rarely do all that heheh. I oooooonly clean my face with a facial wash, but I just do it like until 3 times. I don’t use any other makeup remover products just because I’m lazy like that...:D

People always frown when I tell them this, and they’re like, Diana, you’ve got it all wrong, honey. I knooooow but I’m too lazy.

But but but, finally a brand understands that people like me exist! :D

I was extremely happy when Nivea finally launched an all-in-one Nivea Make Up Clear cleanser where within just one time cleansing and in less than 5 minutes, my face is already clean and all makeup removed. No fuss, all quick and clean. This is definitely my kind of product! I've tried it, and I testify that it's awesome. I love it!

My skin is rather normal to oily, so I choose to use the Nivea Make Up Clear White Oil Control for Oily Skin variant.

So, makeup is now even more fun because the hardest part is no longer difficult too! A facial wash AND makeup remover in one go? YASS! :) #cleansedbyNIVEA
