Lancome Perfume Sample (La vie est belle)

Went and redeemed this Lancome perfume sample. Try it but unfortunately, the smell is not my taste. The smell is more towards citrus fruity strong smell, where as I prefer floral smell instead of fruity smell.

Christmas 2012 from Little Rainbow

This year Christmas not much celebration due to my "condition". Nevertheless, me and my hubby went out for a nice and long movie "The Hobbit". The movie is not bad in my opinion, just that why oh why, must it be a trilogy? Meaning, after this movie, for the next 2 years, I will have to catch up with it else it will be wasteful watching the first part. 

Christmas gift
After the movie, we went in search for our presents. Hehe.. His is .... "secret". But very practical, and he seems to be very proud of his "no wasting" lifestyle. But for me, as every girl out there, we like something which might not be very practical (like we have a lot of it already but we still never seems to get enough, eg: bags, shoes, jewellery etc).

8 different lotion. <3 br="br">
After walking around the spring shopping mall for nearly 2 hours, I finally decided on my gift. And it is Crabtree & Evelyn hand lotion. :) Since it's festive season, there is a lot of promotion going on and all the gifts are pack and wrap up nicely.

I would like to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

DIY Project #2

As you all know, I recently bought a small and portable sewing machine. So finally last weekend I decided to put my sewing machine to good use. Recently I had purchase some clothes to make a bed mattress, and requested the taukeh nio to give back the excess clothes. 

So with the excess clothes, I decided to try and do a small pouch. The following is the step-by-step on how I do the small pouch. 

First, sew the edge.

Top part, fold it down and sew it

Make a button hole and sew a button to it

Ta-Da! The pouch is done.

Read this article in some blog, found it useful or I'm re-posting it here.

Below are the steps on how you can clean your Coach collection :-

Cleaning leather on Coach bags, wristlets, purses or swingpacks
1.Avoid using the washing machine

2.Make sure you buy Coach Cleaner from any Coach retail outlet or you could order Leather Cleaner / Conditioner here which should be just as good.
3.Grab a clean, soft cloth (try avoiding cloths which are coarse) and apply a small amount of the cleaner on to the cloth.
4.Gently rub the cleaner on to the leather in circular motions
5.Once you have covered the entire bag with the cleaner, wipe off all existing leftovers from the cleaner and leave the bag to dry for at 30 minutes.
6.Get another cloth which is dry and clean, repeat step 4 and step 5.
7.Leave the bag again to dry and you should be done.
