Sudio NIVA (Review + Discount Code)

The other day I received a package from Sudio NIVA all the way from Sweden! I was really excited when they told me they were gonna send me their popular Nivå black, a pair of wireless, bluetooth earphones. Not only is it small and easy to carry around with the package it comes with, the quality is superb. I go to the gym at least 3 - 4 times a week so this definitely came in handy especially since it is sweat-proof. One thing about me is that I tend to forget to charge my earphones so the fact that these earphones total play-time is 17.5 hours is really up my alley.
Another thing I really like about these earphones besides the quality is the look of it. I love the sleek design (especially the black!) but it also comes in white and pink. It is very minimalistic and it won't get in the way if you have long hair. Also, there is a built in microphone so you can pick up calls whenever you want - all without the wires!
You can enjoy 15% off your Sudio purchase at with the code NCAVIEN. They will also be having a Valentine's Day promotion where you'll get an additional 10% discount and a free gift package when you purchase two or more earphones. It is also free delivery worldwide! I would highly recommend these for those who are frequently doing physical activities or those who go to the gym often. Till here, I hope you enjoy your Sudio Sweden earphones if you do get it! Nx

Pre-loved but Loved

Happy 2019! Second week into the new year and I've been feeling so good personally and work wise. I hope it is going just as well for you. I had a few people ask me what my resolution was for 2019 and honestly, I did not list down any but I guess now my resolution would be to write more, photograph more, create more and stay healthy. Let's hope I stick to that! Also, on another completely unrelated note, if you know me well you would know I'm a huge fan of Westlife and they just released their latest single Hello My Love and I'm DEAD. Another Westlife song added to my wedding playlist!

Anyway, I've selling off some pre-loved clothing on my Instagram @ncavien including the top in this post, so do head over to check it out!
Top: Floral print top, Zalora
Bottom: Ripped denim shorts, Cotton On
Bag: Brodie belt bag, Cotton On
Shoes: White Chuck Taylors, Converse
I realised I never spend the weekends in anything but my denim shorts. It is one thing I can't seem to let go of - wearing shorts whenever I can. Also, I caved into the whole fanny pack/bum bag trend... I couldn't control myself. But really it kinda looks just like a short sling bag when worn like this. Anyway, I hope you're all well and here's to a great 2019 ahead!


I think I can say for every girl (and most guys) out there that we care for our face a lot, trying to achieve flawless skin. Last week, one of my favourite Malaysian brand Dion Beaute sent me a box of their latest products, #skingoals and boy was I excited! I'm constantly searching for the right products to use on my face to get that flawless skin that glows. In their full set, there are 3 products that work in 3 phases, but you could also use them as individuals based on your preference. 
The first phase is Botoxified, an oil serum that works as a pre-makeup base or as a daily skincare add on. Personally for me, I love this as part of my daily skincare because it creates a very dewy, clean and fresh look. I've been using it for awhile now and can say that this product gives you an immediate lift (which is why they named it Botoxified!) without the need of any face makeup.

You could really just stop at phase 1 but if you want to include a full face of makeup, phase 2 will help you kick off for that flawless finish. Good Genes serves as a foundation/concealer mixing medium that gives you more of an airbrushed look. It gives you that soft focus and matte look, which I think is great when you're using a morw dewy looking foundation. Personally, this is something I would grab to use everyday because all my foundations are matte based and does a really good job but if I want it to have a an even more matte finish, I would use it.

The last phase is Hashtags and Selfie, a binding mist that smells like coconut! Infused with coconut water, it works as a makeup setting spray as well as a skincare mist after cleansing. I love using this after a full face of makeup because it binds all of the makeup together, not only setting it on the entire day but also create a natural flawless skin effect.

Rating: 4.5 / 5
The after look! Overall I really love their new range of products and would definitely recommend Botoxified + Hashtags and Selfies if you're not in to buy the full collection. Dion Beaute is a great local brand to support! Till here, I hope you're all well and achieve #skingoals today!
