[Review + PRODUCT GIVEAWAY] Project B Hydrolyzed Biomarine Collagen Peptide 5,000mg & 100% Natural Fruit Booster (Mixed Berries)

On this Mother's Day, we are truly blessed. Having lived our life more than 4 decades now, we have always been blessed with decent health and a complexion that does not wreak havoc as and when it wishes (that's a huge bonus if you know what we mean *_^) and we do believe you are what you consume. We were delighted that we started a clean regiment with Project B Asia (here for more) two months back here, with their Project B Hydrolyzed Biomarine Collagen Peptide 5,000mg & 100% Natural Fruit Booster Kiwi flavour! It has been delightfully lovely as we truly love the philosophy (here) and the seriousness of the brand to commit to its research and development and its fundamental belief in being transparent and bare by publishing their reports of findings online, publicly (here for more). This post comes with an amazing GIVEAWAY and discount code, so stay tuned till the end *_^

[Inspiration | Musing] Touch Me Like You Do

Saturated rain hits the sunshine like a pair of whirlwind lovers who believes in opposite attracts, perfuming each other with an intoxicated mind and living in the moment, losing their mind, yet a colourful rainbow peeks through the clouds that drifted away just to make way for such little magic.

You touch me in ways you could not even comprehend, in ways I could not even utter a word myself to describe this feeling of sunny stormy disposition. I have hidden away long enough to confide in my own consciousness, not certain if I should even show this other side of me, but never was a shred of regrets for I can only be who I am, and more. 

I have come a long way, discovering the woman that I should have been. 

Lifting my face towards the sunny sky, I brave myself for what has yet to come and will eventually come my way and take a seat at the table of destiny, sipping my gorgeous cup of tea and my music, now who says you can't have it all in life? 

It is about living in the moment and find your little happiness, one that touches you deeply, in a quirky meaningful way, only you know best. 

Have a luminously beautiful new week ahead, lovelies *_^

With Love,

Introducing The New Project B Hydrolyzed Biomarine Collagen Peptide 5,000mg & 100% Natural Fruit Booster

Life has its way of presenting you little pleasantries and its surprises, like star dusts leaving their trails across the clear midnight lonely sky, utterly unannounced and create that sparkles within you that would make you smile in silent happiness. That was what happened to us in February. One of them was the request to connect with a new brand which dares to bare it all - that would include their product planning (current product pipeline here) and development progress (trial reports stating the critical measures they take to confirm their product formulation here). Sounds too serious and scientific, right? Absolutely! That is how serious PROJECT B. ASIA (here for more) takes on what they do and feel passionate about - to be transparent about their business of health supplements. 

If you had been following LUMINNEJ's Instagram, you would have noticed that we have been adopting a healthier and cleaner approach to diet and exercise regiment. We have always believed in "you are what you eat", hence Project B's Hydrolyzed Biomarine Collagen Peptide 5,000mg and the 100% Natural Fruit Booster piqued our interest and we gladly said yes to the collaboration, now giving the both a try, also the fact that we do feel strongly about the philosophy behind the brand (here for their  project mission), hence we gave our collaboration a nickname - Be Bare, Be Beautiful. When you could bare it all, letting your true beauty shine from within and feel totally comfortable about it, that is indeed beautiful. We hope we could at least achieve that with Project B. Let's explore what exactly are these two little powerhouse, shall we?

[Review] Introducing The Mamonde NEW All Stay Foundation | Blooming Rose Beauty Sort Of Complexion

Visuals via

Our love for flowers is undeniably real, though it may seem understated for we always feel that flowers represent a certain state of mind of a woman and her femininity and vulnerability yet with that certain underlying innate strength that cannot be ignored nonetheless. That is how we view the power of flowers and their meaning. We believe this Korean beauty brand, Mamonde has successfully captured and harnessed the true essence and purpose of flowers and bring with it a range of beauty items which does not only smell and look fantastic but work wonderful for the skin too! Read some of our crushes for the brand here previously. 

Mamonde Malaysia recently surprised us with a beautiful blooming bouquet of delightful 3 shades of the brand's new foundation - The All Stay Foundation and its All Stay Sponge. Let's have a look at them and discover what they can do for our makeup routine, all right? And oh, a huge thanks to team Mamonde Malaysia for sending along the love, we are spoilt to brim, indeed *_^

[Review] Dior Backstage | Glow & Shine Like A Dior Model On The Runway

If one watches enough backstage behind-the-scene videos of fashion runway shows, one would be very familiar with the rush and adrenaline that come with prepping and preparing the models' makeup, hair, wardrobe and all, the list seems to go on and on. Makeup is a crucial part of the whole process. This brings us to this blog post (which is long overdue by the way, our apologies), we got a taste of the models line up and got an exclusive VIP pass to witness the launch of Dior's recent Dior Backstage professional performance makeup line at KLCC. It was uber cool and fun! Thanks #DiorMY for having us *_^

The concept behind this first ever makeup collection inspired by Dior backstage was developed and designed by Peter Philips, Dior's Creative and Image Director for makeup to give women around the world a taste of professional makeup. Surprisingly the collection is very extensive and broad, beauty products from face, eyes, lips, makeup brushes right down to nail (here for more)We shall share with you our experience using selected products from the range. Let's get started, shall we?

[Review + Discount Code] Sudio NIVÅ, Free The Sound Wireless Earphones From Sudio Sweden

If you had followed LUMINNEJ long enough, you would have discovered that we are quite a music lover. We enjoy music since gosh know when. We could remember we grew up with MTVs and watching them and recording the music videos we love onto empty VHS tapes (yes, that was how long ago, our generation *_^). So you could probably guess how excited it was when we received an email from this established Swedish brand who takes sound and music absolutely as serious and go as far as handmade most majority of their parts in the production process and is a true believer in bringing the best sound to the world. Yes, we are talking about yet another Swedish design aesthetics here. This time around, it is SUDIO, Swedish design in earphones. Here for more.

[Inspiration | Musing] Finally Home

Came a long way, it was one decision we have made many moons back, making that move eventually was an incredible feeling. Trapped in something which seemingly seems liberating yet suffocating in many ways have pushed us to finally make that move. We are glad, we have made it this far. We are in a better place now, even though it will hurt the other party, inevitably. It is something we need to do, we feel, for the best of everyone ... and everything ultimately. 

Living with the two boys give us much comfort, knowing that they are all right, even though work life is tough, but we try to spend as much time together as we can during their off days. We love where we are now, at a place where we could be comfortable and do whatever our heart wishes. Life goes on. A new chapter, a different kind of life, one which is rewarding in many ways, even though there will always be constant challenges in work life, hence blogging took a back seat. 

We enjoy the solitude and ease the new space brings us. It calms our mind and allows us to have our personal ME time, ever so often and we embrace every moment of it, being alone, yet not lonely for we are connected with the world in more ways than we can imagined. 

It's been a long day, but we have finally come home ...

We hope if you are ever stuck in life, never fear to make the change, it is possible, lovelies, to pursue your own kind of happiness. All it takes is that little extra courage. Have a luminously gorgeous week ahead!

Our tresses may seem like a passing notion to some (like us previously) but to many, it is the one true crowning glory that truly deserves the love and attention it requires.

Review | Cuepido Cosmetics Simply Beautiful Pure Moisture Oil-Free SPF45 & Beauty Mist

All beautiful things come from a place with lots of love and care behind them, we believe. So, this skin-loving skincare brand is no different. If you had followed LUMINNEJ for some time, you would have noticed that we fell in love with Cuepido Cosmetics (here for more) for some time now (our crushes, naturally here and here previously) and we have always enjoyed the array of natural and organic skin freedom concept skincare and beauty products the brand offers. This time a round, we would love to share with you a little brief thoughts of the two products we received many moons back. Yes, life just got in the way and it is long overdue, nonetheless, excited to let you lovelies know more here. 

All Cuepido products are formulated without Paraben, Phthalates, Triclosan, Sulphates and Gluten, which is such a comfort to know. In today's world, we are already overloaded with enough harmful chemicals, knowing what we consume or put on our skin is gentle yet effective is most definitely rewarding. Read more about the brand here.

[Inspiration | Musing] That Change Of View

I can't help falling in love with you, space, for you give me a new way of looking at things, you show me that a different view is possible as long as you have an open heart and mind. Fear of the unknown and unfamiliar is terribly real yet beautifully inviting at the same time. I embrace this change, I took it all in, head on, without having a shred of doubt that I would eventually be fine, over time. 

Space, you seem forgiving, you seem friendly enough to accommodate my weakness and all my shortcomings, a woman who only wishes to be happy, no matter where she is, to be free of the worries of the world, yet she knows too well that life is never a bed of roses and worries can only be kept at bay with strong hopeful thoughts and solid baby step actions. 

The new space seems more peaceful, rendering me more solitude of the mind and soul, to be just who I want to be - a simple woman with simple needs, to have ample mental space to think, to explore, to do the things I enjoy doing. 

I have come home, somewhat I feel. The person who I am and who I perhaps would eventually be, are equally similar yet so different in ways I could hardly comprehend but could only embrace as much as I could. Life is beautiful after all when what you search for is only happiness and good intentions, nothing more as the rest seem to fade away like the whispers of the winds.

Some things are just meant to happen that way ... 

Have a fantastic and luminous rest of the week, lovelies *_^

With love,

Lifestyle Review | Gaston Luga, That Swedish Minimalist Backpack That Is Stylishly Functional

You kept me close, you kept me warm, you kept me company and 
kept my letters of adventurous journeys so vividly colourful that 
what is there not to love about you? To journey beyond your eyes and mind is 
to understand the true essence of discovering one true self ... 
and yet, after all there is to explore out there, 
one comes back home to the unfamiliarly familiar
That perhaps, is one of our greatest adventures yet, one fine day.
What better way to go on an adventure with a trusted companion
that looks stylishly sleek and yet is a work horse and
come back home full of great memories.

Visual via Gaston Luga Online

We have always been fascinated by Scandinavian design aesthetics, especially its minimalistic and simplicity towards making things look elegantly refined, yet they do not seem to lose their charm on someone like us, it is equally captivating and mesmerising how they could seem to pull it off effortlessly *_^ When Gaston Luga, a Swedish backpack retailer (here for more) located in the heart of Stockholm approached us to explore if we are keen to collaborate with them, we were pleasantly surprised but all too happy in fact to have a further look into the brand. Once we read their brand story (here) and discovered more of their varied ranges for both men  (here) and women (here), we were enthralled by the idea of owning one already. After a few exchanges of email correspondences, our preferred choice of Gaston Luga Pråper Pink arrived in slightly less than a week! 

Visual via Gaston Luga Online

From our browsing on the brand's official website, we realised that Gaston Luga's uniquely designed backpacks fit into quite a variety of settings from their 3 main collections - ClässicClässy and Pråper. Our first impression of the backpacks via their social media platforms and online presence was that they are definitely chic looking. The designs are, to say the least, pleasing to the eyes, aesthetically. It got our interested piqued when we read more about the sturdy canvas materials that are used to produce each backpack.
