As kids, many of us have been through the depths of our imagination with Barbie dolls. Sometimes she is a princess in a tower, other times she is a Hollywood star or an astronaut.

Barbie has been able to be whatever she wanted to be and that was exactly the theme of her 60th anniversary, “You Can Be Anything”.

Barbie in collaboration with Tourism Malaysia lit up the nation’s iconic KL Tower in pink to mark the start of Barbie’s 60th Anniversary celebration in Malaysia from 11 to 31 March 2019. In hopes of inspiring the next generation, Barbie encourages #MoreRoleModels in the fields of entrepreneurship, science, culinary arts, fashion and beauty.

On this occasion, Barbie launched its 60th Anniversary Signature Doll, Career Dolls and Travel Range. Since the inception of Barbie in 1959, over 1 billion dolls have been sold worldwide. The Country Manager of Mattel Southeast Asia, Ivan Franco, said, “For 60 years, Barbie has championed girls, inspired generations to believe through make believe and showed them that they have choices. Through our global platform, we are igniting a movement to further establish Barbie as the ultimate girl empowerment brand.”

The celebration was graced by women who are breaking boundaries in a variety of diverse career fields – the nation’s very own role models to inspire the next generation such as Datin Vivy Yusof, Co-founder of FashionValet and Founder of the dUCk Group; Professor Dr. Mazlan Othman, Malaysia’s First Astrophysicist; Dato’ Tiffanee Marie Lim, VP Brand, Creativity, and Talent Management for Limkokwing University and Creative Director of Limkokwing Fashion Club; Datin Winnie Loo, Founder and Chief Creative Director of A Cut Above Group of Salons and Academy; Amber Chia, Supermodel and Principal of Amber Chia Academy; and Karen Leong, Founder of Karen Leong Cake Design.

Barbie illuminates iconic landmarks in pink throughout Southeast Asia for it’s 60th anniversary; which includes Malaysia’s KL Tower, Philippines’ Manila City Hall, Indonesia’s Museum Fatahillah, Singapore’s Singapore Flyer to Thailand’s Emquartier.

Every woman peaks differently for various aspects of her life, but that doesn’t invalidate their successes whatsoever, regardless of the expanse of their personal goals. And that’s exactly what Beauty ReWritten champions. It’s Sephora’s latest initiative that challenges pre-conceived notions of beauty and success through the celebration of diversity far beyond what meets the eye.

With a goal to empower and liberate women, Beauty ReWritten seeks to acknowledge beauty beyond face value and to drive dialogue amongst women in an effort to build a community of women who are supportive of one another by bringing fearless women in the spotlight and sharing their stories. Hence, eight women of various ages, race and cultural backgrounds are highlighted for this initiative.

The women hail from countries within the region like Thailand, Singapore and Australia, and the two from Malaysia include Nadira Yussof, a determined mother of six with the same number of businesses under her belt, and Sandhya Manoj, an accomplished Odissi dancer, yoga master and mother of two. Embracing their own definition of beauty, both of them recently spoke of their participation in the initiative.

“Beauty to me is my strength. For being able to stand up for myself and to be where I am today,” said Nadira. Meanwhile, Sandhya mentioned, “People do not see me as who I am internally which is much more important. And that’s what beauty is to me. Everything that shows as external beauty is a portrayal of a beauty within.” The stories of these women are now available on Sephora SEA’s Beauty feed via the mobile app.

Access www.sephora.my to shop or find out more about Beauty ReWritten. Alternatively, download the Sephora app on Apple App Store or Google Play Store to read the stories of these women via the new Beauty Feed.

A crucial part involved in planning your vacation is deciding on accommodation and more often than not, the average traveller like us access major hotel booking sites like Agoda, Booking.com and Hotels.com hesitation in search of a temporary abode, whether that is a luxury five-star resort, a budget hotel or a no-frills hostel.

What you may not have been aware of all these years is that these sites, including the likes of eBookers, Expedia and Trivago, haven’t been the most honest about the way they operate, pressure selling, putting up misleading discount claims, offering false impressions of a room’s popularity and also implementing hidden charges every time you book.

Thankfully, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) of the United States has recently taken action against these sites, and they have been given until September 2019 to clean up the way they operate. This is evidently huge news for the travel industry as there has always been a lack of transparency prior to this.

Aside from providing the full cost of a room upfront including taxes and other fees, the six will have to quit falsifying a room’s availability and stop making misleading discount claims. Ultimately, they agreed “to ensure that consumers are not misled about the amount they will have to pay, and that wherever a price is displayed the total price is displayed”.

The six have also agreed to disclose if a certain client is paying them extra to rank hotels higher in their listings every time potential customers make a search on their website. They have also committed to omit labelling properties as “sold out” just so buyers would make the bookings more quickly in fear of not having locked down somewhere to stay.

We don’t know about you, but we sure as hell are ready to say goodbye to dodgy sales tactics and smoother travels!

There’s nothing worse than spending your hard-earned money on a brand new bottle of foundation only to find out later that it doesn’t really match your skin tone. Yes, it’s probably salvageable and you can always mix it in with other foundations to lighten or darken it.. But there’s a method you can employ to avoid that problem altogether.

Hector Espinal, who has made up big names like Cardi B and is also Fenty Beauty’s Global Makeup Artist, revealed a quick solution for matching foundation to your skin tone, and whenever he spills any tips and tricks, we’re all ears as they must also be queen Rihanna-approved.

In an interview with Bustle, he shared two tips for finding the perfect shade: Identifying your undertone and swatching the product on the right area of the body. Here’s how you can identify your undertone, which typically would be one of the three – warm, cool or neutral.

According to the beauty guru, a quick and effortless way to find out what your undertone is, is by pressing down on your wrist with the thumb. The first colour that shows up is your undertone. Simple right? The next step involves picking the colour that is the closest to your skin tone.

He says, “Because your face is sometimes lighter or darker than your body, I always match the foundation to the chest,” As for concealer, he suggests swatching the product on the back of the wrist as it is the lightest part and doesn’t get exposed to the sun too much.

When it comes to tools, the pro makeup artist recommends using one that is tailored to your skin type. A brush or sponge is ideal for oily skin, however it’s best to use a dampened sponge for drier base textures. With skin conditions like rosacea, avoid using tools that need lots of motion because it can further aggravate the sensitivity.

Finally, he stays clear from using the fingers, pointing out that it isn’t hygienic, and that, “You’re messing with your pores and it’s going to make you break out.” Welp.. Guilty as charged. At least now we know!

Trust us – We’ve had our fair share of scouring the internet for mouth-watering photos and videos revolving around food when the late night hunger pangs kick in and it’s not exactly the ideal time to whip up something to eat. Admittedly, it sort of is counterintuitive, but it’s also gratifying.. in a weird way. Oh, come on, we can’t be the only ones!

One good thing that did come out of all that intensive lurking on the web is the discovery of more niche YouTubers we adore for specific reasons. Sure, big guys like Sorted Food, Foodtube by Jamie Oliver, and Laura in the Kitchen are always fun to watch and learn from, but it’s time we give a shoutout to our new found favourites too. Enjoy!

1. Jess Beautician

Even if you aren’t a vegan, you’ll adore Jessica’s “What I Eat in A Day” videos and plant-based recipes that are as ingenious as they are creative. There’s something about the clean and simple aesthetics, combined with the pared back music and her soothing voice that makes her videos so compelling to watch! Not exactly a chef, but highly informative nonetheless.

2. Tastemade – Good Times with Jen Phanomrat

Tastemade isn’t new by any means, but there are a few common faces we cannot get enough of. Case in point – Jen Phanomrat. While her recipes are no less spectacular, what really drew us to watching her videos is her sassy AF personality. She also has her a food blog and food channel on YouTube which she shares with her fiancé Leo called Just Eat Life.

3. Tastemade – Struggle Meals with Frankie Celenza

Celenza epitomises the broke millennial life so very perfectly by sharing simple yet tasty recipes with affordable ingredients.. and his drawer of condiments like ketchup, chilli sauce, salt and pepper accumulated from one too many visits to the fast food chains. It just goes to show that nothing is impossible.. even if you’re penniless!

4. Topless Baker

If there’s anything sexier than a man who bakes, it’s a topless man with a British accent who bakes. Say what you will about his self-marketing strategy, but his hot bod aside, Matt Adlard’s videos make something as daunting as baking seem easy. Hey, you’d probably pay more attention to his instructions too!

5. Honeysuckle

Dzung Duong of Honeysuckle just has the whole package and we can’t decide if we adore her demure personality, childlike yet calming voice, pretty pastel kitchen aesthetics or easy-to-follow recipes more. All her videos are a visual experience in their own right, and we reckon you’ll love them too.

The iconic Bratz dolls were regarded the elite of toy dolls of those born circa 1990s and we don’t know about you, but they’re far more superior than Barbies in our books. For starters, the main Bratz clique was made up of 75% ethnic minorities, which accurately reflects the world’s demographics. More importantly, they were sold to be equal and none of them were ever trampling over one another vying for Ken’s attention. We could go on, but you get the point.

Some parents were arguably concerned over their perceived promiscuity (“slutty” OTT makeup and pop culture-inspired style a la The Pussycat Dolls), but as children we never once recognised these things.. And the latest beauty trend sweeping social media as of late just goes to show how much these plastic dolls made an impact in the world. Behold the #Bratzchallenge: A beauty challenge whereby individuals transform themselves into living Brats dolls.

While the official Bratz Instagram account first encouraged beauty-obsessed fans to share their Bratz-inspired makeup, over 50,000 people have now used the challenge hashtag and the results are spectacular to say the least, flooding social media with looks featuring large anime-like eyes, insanely pouty lips, and tiny noses.. all in the name of beauty and good fun. Here are some of the most impressive looks:

We wish things were that easy and that we’d look put together once we hop right out of bed, but unfortunately that isn’t the case. Luckily though, there is a buzzy hairstyle that’s looks effortlessly messy as it is easy to recreate a la the French girl way – banana buns.

This super chic low-slung hairstyle takes just minutes to achieve and sort of looks like a French twist that sits on the lower half of the head, nearly close to the neck. All you have to do is roll your hair up, pop in a few bobby pins and voila, you’re done! Lucky for you, we’ve included a few video tutorials so you can get to stylin’ asap..

It’s going to be double the happiness this festive February as we ring in Chinese New Year and Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re looking to sport bold red and gold hues to attract all the ong you can for the upcoming Year of the Pig or as a symbol of romance while scouting for your prince charming, feast your eyes on these accessories and diversify your existing collection. Needless to say, there’s a whole lot you can show off here!

Coach

There’s no better way to give your ang paos a home than a shiny, new handbag and Coach’s auspicious collection is at the top of our list. Featuring materials such as leather and its signature coated canvas, these designs are as versatile as they are practical. We’d look into the Dreamer (4th bag from the left) as a take-everywhere bag, and the Parker in Colorblock Signature Canvas (1st bag from the left) for grander affairs!

The Lunar New Year collection by Coach is available exclusively at Coach Pavilion Elite. Make purchases of RM2,100 and above and get a special passport case with free monogramming customisation.

Atelier Swarovski

Constituting passion, abundance and prosperity, Atelier Swarovski’s Graceful Bloom boasts striking ruby-coloured stones, complemented with champagne gold-plated filigree leaves and other gold accents. Regardless of what you choose as an ensemble, these precious pieces will certainly add poise, sophistication and some fun sparkle whilst you turn heads in the room. They make great Galantine’s Day gifts too.

The Atelier Swarovski Graceful Bloom Collection can be purchased at Swarovski Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

Dolce & Gabbana

Your social calendar is probably packed to the brim visiting your friends and family, but hey, at least you can do it in absolute style with Dolce & Gabbana’s opulent Gold Collection of men’s and women’s sunglasses enveloped with 18-karat gold plating. Available in shades of white, pink and yellow gold, the women’s style have round frames, mirrored lenses and a slim profile whereas the men’s are a classic aviator-style with a double bridge.

Dolce & Gabbana’s Gold Collection are available at select Luxottica stockists within Malaysia.

Longchamp

The ubiquitous Longchamp bag has gotten a quirky refresh this Year of the Pig with an oh-so-adorable collection in collaboration with one of China’s most influential fashion bloggers, Tao Liang, a.k.a. Mr. Bags. The iconic Le Pliage® Cuir receives a witty spin in the form of bold white lines that represent the hog, with a curly tail on the front and a pair of pointed ears and two dots for eyes on the back, as well as a tiny fart hidden under the top flap.

Available in black and pastel pink, the Longchamp x Mr. Bags limited edition collection is now available at select Longchamp stockists within Malaysia.

Poh Kong

From “like” to “love” and beyond, jewelry is always a good idea to mark significant moments in life and it doesn’t just have to be between two significant others. Regardless of who you hold dear, Poh Kong’s timeless earrings, pendants, diamonds and rings are crafted to impress just about anyone. Of course, a handful are also offered in pairs to mark the union of hearts between actual lovebirds.

Poh Kong’s Valentine’s Day lineup includes D’first, Hemera, the Love Collection, Disney Charm Collection and Happy Love.

Salvatore Ferragamo

To mark the arrival of the Year of the Pig, the Italian fashion house unveiled a limited edition capsule collection of accessories, leather goods and silk, fusing Ferragamo’s legacy and the warmth of the upcoming spring season. While the entire capsule collection is to die for, our eyes are glued onto the calfskin bags ornamented with the iconic Vara bow and covered in tiny studs for a juxtaposing casual cool ruggedness.

Salvatore Ferragamo’s Year of the Pig capsule collection is now available at its retail boutiques within Malaysia.

Ray-Ban

In an unexpected turn of events, Ray-Ban introduces its Chinese New Year Special Edition sunglasses that takes things back a notch.. in a good way, of course! The unique sunglasses, meant to be paired with your vibrant clothing to commemorate the prosperous occasion, feature crystal clear transparent frames with washed Bordeaux lenses. It also has “Special Edition” engraved on the right temple and comes in a red case.

The 2019 Special Edition Ray-Ban retails for RM629 and is available at selected authorised Ray-Ban optical stores.

Jimmy Choo

If subtlety isn’t your strong suit, Jimmy Choo’s Spring Summer collection for 2019 is calling out to you. Evoking a sense of drama and daring confidence, the bags are crafted from a diverse range of fabrics like natural raffias to plush velvets. Choose from the Cloud minaudière with a ruffled cuff detail handle, the Callie clutch with two styling options, or the Allegra carry-alls made of smooth Nappa leather, amongst others.

Jimmy Choo’s Spring Summer 2019 collection also comprises a wide selection of shoes.

Habib Jewels

Even if pong teh and glutinous rice dumplings aren’t going to be a part of your menu any time soon, you can still rock Habib Jewels’ Eastpiration collection that takes cue from the rich and vibrant Baba Nyonya or Peranakan Chinese heritage. Adorn your kebaya look with the delicate kerongsang, cucuk sanggul (gold hairpin) and gold belt, or step out in the Auspicious Diamond pendant and Rose Gold necklace.

Habib Jewels’ Eastpiration collection is now available at all Habib Jewels retail boutiques within Malaysia.

TUMI

If your festive season involves travelling of any kind, TUMI’s refreshed and limited edition Voyageur collection is your best bet for lugging all your essentials around. Available in a distinctive Black and Red combo, TUMI pays homage to the Year of the Pig with three iconic silhouettes – the Hagen Backpack, Witney Backpack and Troy Crossbody – complete in classic black hues, paired with gold hardware and festive red zipper pulls alongside a custom monogram tag.

TUMI’s limited edition Chinese New Year collection will be available at TUMI Pavilion KL, Suria KLCC, The Gardens Mall and Sky Avenue from February 2019 onwards.

Swarovski

Love is one of the most effervescent forms of expression and Swarovski champions that notion this time around with a modern and sophisticated assortment of feminine styles in a soft palette of nudes and pinks. The Lifelong Bow reimagines the flowing ribbon that symbolises eternal love, whereas the One is a variety of stackable rings, adjustable necklaces and chokers, all in the most pretty shade of millennial pink.
