Gifts Inspiration For A White Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner and other parts of the world are (snowing) gearing up for the festive occasion. Here in Malaysia, we don't have snow, but we can always join in the festivity by giving our love, be it gifts or our precious time spend with family and friends.

Who says we are tired of gifts giving? The more the merrier *_^ Here are some ideas (and some secret wish list from LUMINNEJ). Perhaps, you have already found your perfect gifts for your special ones out there! Whatever it may be, a gift from the heart, with loads of LOVE is always a great gift. Here are a set for her, and a set for him. I am very sure, for one, my hubby would love the latest ipad air, of all the items shown below >_< He has been diligently following the latest series of BLACKLIST (which I find equally interesting too).

Inspiring Creativity, An Artistry That Is Shiseido Professional - Part 2

Perhaps it was the place, perhaps it was the crowd, perhaps it was the wine, perhaps it was the stage, the show, perhaps it was everything that was exquisite about the show. Yes, LUMINNEJ was invited to the one and only Beauty Innovator Award 2013 by Shiseido Professional recently at The Royale Chulan Kuala Lumpur Hotel! 

As I was saying in my previous post (part 1 here), we were invited to take a seat as the show was about to begin. I was super excited as I was completely mesmerized by the beautiful stage. Opening show was interesting and followed by speeches. Soon after, it was the performances by Malaysia artistic ambassadors, Fabian Lau and Iven Long. Then, Shiseido Professional Malaysia Beauty Creative Team, which comprises shows by Lois Lee, Eric Koh and Elvin Soh. A kaleidoscope of colours, textures, shapes, infusing artistic fashion designs with hair creations that were unique to each hair designers whom are already very established in the industry, locally and internationally, were certainly very entertaining.

[Faces] Meeting Celest Thoi and Jimmy Lim

It was such great pleasure meeting up with my fashion designer friends for our LUMINNEJ's FACES segment, which we wanted to highlight local movers and shakers in the beauty/fashion industry. It has always been our dream to chat with them, face to face. I was honoured enough, to do so, previously. 

Meeting Jimmy for my very first FACES was like reconnecting with a good old friend, whom I have not seen for ages, but always picks things up where we had left off, immediately when we met. Till now, I could still remember that meeting. Awesome afternoon indeed, over a cuppa. Not to mention, excellent fashion collection Jimmy always has, from back then when he started. 

Stepping foot into that dreamy studio of Celest Thoi was another pleasant surprise I had at Publika. Her  timeless and ethereal wedding gowns would make a bride-to-be fall head over heels with. She has such grace and sense of taste when it comes to knowing what women really want to wear for their special day in their lives. It is truly a gift to have such great talents. 

We are really looking forward to more of our meetings with local personalities for FACES with LUMINNEJ. So, do stay tuned. Meanwhile, click here to check out our  previous posts on these two fabulous personalities and find out what we (really) did talk about when we met. (More beautiful pictures await)

Stay luminous and happy always, lovelies.

[Polyvore] Life Is More Fun With Polyvore

LUMINNEJ loves Polyvore. It's such a fun way to put all the things you love in a mood board and let your creative juice run wild. I guess, it's a secret way for me to be a "fashion editor" for that one split second!

I have not be "creating" recently as I found a new fun love, PINTEREST! But am going to head back to my polyvore mood boards again soon. Meanwhile, here are some of my polyvore boards. Hope you all love them *_^ For more of my polyvore, please check them out here or click on the "Lumi On POLYVORE" on the right side bar!

[Food] Life Is A Sweet Temptation

I have a soft spot for desserts! There you go, I have confessed. I know how sinful they can be (counting those calories now... really? Nah *_^), but they seem to call out to me, like how the mannequins call out to Rebecca Blooomwood ("The girl in the green scarf" in Confession of a Shopaholic movie)! Crazy, right? But it is true.

In my humble opinion, I believe KOMUGI has one of the best breads and desserts in town. High quality and great food for the soul >_<
Well, want-to-be-healthy-side-of-me kicks in and I try my very best (I really do) to keep myself a safe distance from them, as much and as often as I can. Sometimes, you do tend to give in to temptation. How can you not? Just look at that?

An extended version of the post here. More food post here *_^

Have a sweet sweet weekend ahead, lovelies.

[Places] My Nostalgic Penang

I have not been to many places around the world, but of all the places I have been, I still have a strong affinity towards this one place. Perhaps, it is a place that I have spent my most fun time in my entire life at, so far. It was the best times of my life, I must admit. 

I love this small little island. It offers one of the best food, as well as diverse culture and places to visit. Well, am sure, you know where I am talking about, Penang! The Northern part of Peninsular Malaysia. You have the mountain, the beach, the rocks, the paddi fields, the bay, the jungle, the temples, you name it, Penang has it all (of course, plus the sunny tropical weather). 

Here are some of my favourite places in Penang. Many more to be discovered. This place is a gem. Similar and extended previous post here. Enjoy your travel and journey in life, no matter where you are heading, near or far!

The stage was truly impressive and it was very expressive! 
The stage was amazing, never was I so excited before, to see such a well-put together event. I absolutely fell in love with the stage and the performances. 

We truly had a great evening. For extended and full post, with more exciting pictures, please click here. Stay tuned for my next follow-up post for the show soon *_^

Dreamy White

I have always loved white, or at least something as close to white, like cream beige or pastel colours. I feel they are so soft, dreamy and wonderfully luxurious, in every way one could possibly imagine.

I love the feeling it evokes, the imagination it ignites, and subdued power it holds within. It allows you add on any other colours you would like to have, that makes them versatile. Here are some of my favourite things in one of my dreamy colours of imagination. Enjoy *_^

A similar and extended post can be found here. Stay luminous, my lovelies.
