Victoria's Secret Accessories @ One Utama

Hey guys!

If you've been following our blog, you'll know that my usual subject covers arts & crafts and not shopping or retail. Well, let me just say that I feel like I have to reviews the new VS Store since there isn't a single review I can find online! They say necessity is the mother of invention right? Well here's living proof of it.

Firstly, I have been so excited for the opening of this store for months now. I can assure you a hundred percent that so many Malaysian women are happy to know that there is another VS store in Malaysia besides the one in KLIA. Driving to the aiport is never fun, and I wouldn't do it just for a single bottle of lotion. So here at One Utama, you can finally sniff, touch and luxuriate your senses in their beauty products, all first hand~

VS Fantasies

First off, the products. I'm not quite sure, but I do think you can find the same items here as in the store in KLIA- body mists, perfumes, lotions and body butter, all from the VS Fantasies collection; VS totes, travel essentials like luggage and toiletry bags, purses and clutches; accessories like bangles and sunnies, some make up and a small selection of panties, mostly from the PINK collection.

Next, the setting and personnel. The look of the store is gorgeous; it;s brightly lit with lots of black & pink accents, and the main highlight is the huge digital screen made up of smaller screens next to the counter that shows you clips from VS photo shoots and runway shows ^^ Their staff are friendly and welcoming, with black mesh totes to help carry your purchases... they don't hesitate to let you test every single scent there is on the shelf! When me and my friends came back for a second time, they even remembered us and the stuff we bought ;)

So you might be asking by now, what did we buy? So two main stuff were bought- underwear and beauty products. As of now, VS is having a buy 5 for RM 150 promotion for their cotton underwear (RM 40+ per pair), and buy 3 for RM 125 for their gorgeous undies (RM 50 or RM 55 per pair). As for the body mists, they retail at RM 53 per bottle (250 ml) and the set of 4 lotions retails at RM 60+ (they were about 60 ml each as it was the travel set).

VS Bombshell.. their best-selling fragrance

All in all we were really happy with this first experience at the VS Store in One Utama. Since this is only their second day opening, we've got more to find out at their store and more future promotions to look out for! :D If there was any downside, I would say that they don't have a gift packaging service like in other beauty or accessories stores. So for those who are interested to experience the sights, sounds and scents of Victoria's Secret, head on down to One Utama, First floor at the New Wing (across Delicious cafe). 

Hopefully we will see more new products arrive and not forgetting that much-awaited time of the year... Merdeka Sale! Have fun at the new VS guys!

Eid Family Tradition: makmur Raya cookies or Biskut Arab

Eid is upoun us!

Are you ready?

I know I'm not seeing that my wedding is like a week after Raya! hamaigads!

But there is comfort, and the comfort is in tradition, things that don't change no matter how old you are, and what year it is. And for me it is making melt-in-your-mouth Makmur Raya cookies. My family doesn't have many traditions, we are "modern" like that. We dont have a kampung to rush to, no "lampu pelitas" to light, we dont play with fireworks (anymore), so this one tradition, plus taking raya family portraits are something that I truly cherish.

Here we assemble all the ladies; aunts, nieces, and cousins; and make the Siru family secret recipe makmur cookies!

This is the dough, or what's left of it.

And with well trained hands we fill the douch with crushed salted peanuts

Like so...

I broke tradition and made heart shaped ones, hehe

and we bake!

Cooling down by my aunt's window

Then my other aunt ices them with sifted icing sugar, and I went crazy snapping pics

And done! yumms..

Since this is a secret recipe I can't share it! hehe sorry, but here is a recipe for makmur cookies and maybe you can start your own tradition!

Far: Hijab Wedding trials!!

Salam and hello all!

I have been having my hand at a lot of other things besides hijab, mostly food and craft related.... this is probably because I have been quite lazy and find that a good pashmina and the easy style suits me well:) check out my new favorite styles here. BUT I know how many of our readers luuurrvvee hijab styles! so here you go!

these pics are from my trial nikah make up and hijab :)

The red hijab was the perfect length and size but is red and wont go with my all white dress. The white hijab is a more suitable color however the size is too big, that's why girls you must always give yourself a trial run :)


My friend Dina does my hijab and make up! she was also responsible for my engagement makeup and hijab:) please check her website out!


ps: my dad doesn't like my diamond headband so that is out. How disappointing.

see you girls soon!

xoxo: far
