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.

Rating: 5 / 5
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.

Rating: 3 / 5 
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!

Curate Your Wonderful at Robinsons

Last week, Robinsons Kuala Lumpur flagship officially launched in Shoppes at Four Seasons Place and it looked amazing. It really was a night full of fun and surprises from Sazzy Falak as the emcee to Dayang Nurfaizah making an entrance down the escalator, I had a great look at what makes this flagship store truly one that is of luxury and variety. The launch night was great with the elaborate events that took place (including a pop up speakeasy bar!) but Robinsons Kuala Lumpur is a store one would return to over and over again. They offer first-class experiences such as personal style consultants, porter services, carefully curated collections and even gourment dining for those of you who get tired from shopping in this massive store!
With a retail space of over 200,000 sq ft, you are spoilt with choices from locally made products to prestigious international brands such as Strathberry and Karl Lagerfeld. They even carry the Les Merveilleuses Ladurée line which I really hope I can get my hands on some day! Famous street style brands are also available such as Boy London and House of Sunny. But if you ever get tired from shopping and just need to take a break, there are in-store cafes such as Starbucks Reserve and Croisserie Artisan Bakery to enjoy a cup a coffee.

"Our focus is to never be a regular departmental store. Robinsons is and always will be about curating what we provide to our shoppers so that each time they visit us, they will find something wonderful." - Christophe Cann

Over 4 floors of exclusive brands you will never be able to find anywhere else in Malaysia, Robinsons spacious layout and stylish vibes is the retail paradise of Kuala Lumpur. I think my favourite part about Robinsons is the choices in terms of budget, where there are not only products that might cost you a bomb, but also products that are reasonably priced but still of high quality. It's time to #CurateYourWonderful with a shopping experience you would want to re-live over and over again. Now open from 10am to 10pm daily, start your shopping spree at Robinsons Kuala Lumpur, Shoppes at Four Seasons Place. Visit for more information. Happy shopping!
