Dreamy Miss Dior Blooming Scent Ad Campaign

We are truly loving these latest Christian Dior's perfume ad campaigns, featuring the deliciously exquisite Natalie Portman, the face of the new Miss Dior essence, Blooming Bouquet. We can't help but to share it here. These speaks of a quintessentially feminine look - pinkish, soft flowy and flowery details, basking in the pure sunlight, magnificently captured through the lens of the skillful photographer, Tim Walker.

[Star Gazing] Kim Woo Bin for W Magazine Korea

Funny enough, we all (well, some of us, really) love "bad boys", in some wicked way, no? Perhaps, we "fall" for the image or representation of them on film, or even TV. Case in point, don't you love that bashful, cunning-intellectual yet somewhat naughty big bully Choi Young-do (played by the dashing Kim Woo-Bin) in the hit Korean series, The Inheritors? One can't seem to not fall for his mischief, his purposeful picking-on Cha Eun-Sang (female lead played by the girl-next-door-looking Park Shin-Hye) but yet in end end, we still forgive him for doing so?

Sparkling Pretty With Selberan

Diamond is a girl's best friend? Most definitely for some of us. We will (almost) always be attracted to that glittering precious stone, especially if it is beautifully crafted and made. SELBERAN, a member of the Royal Selangor groups of companies have been doing just that, for the Malaysian market, offering stylishly distinctive, chic and wide variety of jewellery. This season, Selberan introduces its annual solitaire collection, Hana & Lani (bold and sophisticated additions to the brand's gallery of fine jewellery) and at the same time, expanding its platinum offerings with a new series of sleek and sophisticated rings that promise to be modern classics. Of course, when one thinks of engagement rings, one can't do without conjuring up that beautiful day of donning in ones elegant wedding dress or matching the pieces with a lovely evening gown. Featured alongside the array of luxurious Selberan pieces here are two of LUMI's favourite fashion designers, Celest Thoi and Eric Choong creations.

The Hana series are distinctively recognizable by their stylized curves that result in an elegant shape, placing The Selberan Diamond front and centre. The undulating curves of this design resemble fluid waves that culminate in a floral like pattern, giving the pieces an organic and feminine aesthetics. 

Lana series, on the other hand, provides the counterpoint to Hana's softer virtues. With striking blades that surround the solitaire diamond, the Lani pieces resemble a radiant sun with ray of light that beam asymmetrically. We LOVE this series! 

The Hana and Lani collection symbolizes the convergence of different styles. hard and soft, round and pointed (contrasting yet complementary creations). The Hana and Lani collection in 18k gold is available at all Selberan boutiques (Pavilion KL, Suria KLCC, The Gardens Mid Valley City, Empire Shopping Gallery and Royal Selangor Visitor Centre in Setapak). 

Platinum jewellery, forged with the most prestigious of metals, has always been a highly prized addition to any jewellery connoisseur's collection. Its dense and durable structure coupled with a luxurious appeal, allow for platinum's qualities to best be seen in rings of various forms and eye catching detail. The quintessential solitaire diamond ring is flourished with a curved accent along the front of the ring, resulting in a design aesthetic that draws one's eyes to the diamond in the centre. Made in 950 platinum, this series of rings is handcrafted by Selberan's artisans, making each piece an individual and unique piece of work. It is now available in all Selberan boutiques. 

If you would love to discover more about Selberan and its pieces, you can check it out here. For intricately crafted lovely timeless wedding gowns by Celest Thoi, click here. For exquisite evening wear and bridal dresses by Eric Choong, here for more. 

Have a luminous and beautiful week ahead!

A Refreshing Way of Eating - Food For The Soul

We love this place so much that we have visited the Kechara Forest Retreat for a few times this month already. It's a stay away from home, away from the hustle bustle of the city life, and retreat into a place where nature calls and beckons. One will most definitely find it peaceful here. Just look at the greenery, the flowers and what nature has to offer, aren't they just beautiful? It is also a sanctuary where a conscious community is built where we learn not only to respect and nurture the mother earth, but to also nurture our own spiritual path as well.

We brought our family there for a one-night stay, attended the morning puja (prayers) and we even helped out with the green gardening there. It is awesome that the kids get to know where their food actually come from *_^ (apart from just eating it on the plates!) and learn to contribute their effort to give more. Herbs and vegetables planted here are safe as no harmful chemical pesticides are being used. After our puja, we were being served an array of very fresh green-garden-own-grown-produces-made dishes for the day. Look how delicious they are, tasted really GOOD too!

Final Cut - The New Age of Pink by NARS

When one think of the colour pink, one can't help but to associate it with feeling of softness, sweet and nice. NARS Cosmetics however takes a very different view on this classic "girly" colour, puts it into their latest limited edition collection - a modern montage of perfectly provocative hues, simply by breaking all the rules and give this exclusive pink collection a new attitude that is fierce, feminine and edgy! It's called FINAL CUT, the New Age of Pink.

We spot quite a great deal of pink for this spring seasons, especially make-up collections. I guess one can never get bored with this colour, can we? The Satin Lip Pencil and Blush shades range from sweet and seductive cherry blossom to passionate peach coral. Strike a balance with the same colour for lips and cheeks or spark a romance with an unexpected combination. The choice is endless and really is up to you (and your mood for the day *_^). To complete the look, one can always apply the shimmering lavender pink illuminator. 

Price: Blush RM120, Satin Lip Pencil RM85 and Illuminator RM110
The collection is already available starting January 2014 at NARS Cosmetics at Pavilion KL. 

If you missed the opening of the store recently, do check out our previous blog post here. Don't you think this is a nice pink for your Chinese New Year look? Still not too late as we are only at the second day of Lunar New Year, lovelies *_^

Till then, have a lovely holiday and weekend.
