  6. Hello !! *wave wave*

    Thanks for organizing this giveaway

    My 3 summer time MUST HAVE essential items are...

    1. Sun off the beach Sunblock !
    Reason : The sun isnt a close friend of mine. And i dislike getting myself tanned. During my stay in Kenting @ Taiwan , i always apply sunblock almost 3 to 4 times a day to prevent myself from getting nasty sun burnt!

    2. Bio Essence Miracle Water !
    Reason : I've a very Very VERY Sensitive forehead ! Uh huh* My dermatologist said it might be the sweat gland etc etc therefore it will causes massive breakouts especially on my forehead. -.- So on and off i apply spray Bio Essence to keep my forehead chill & cool ~

    3. Tissue
    Reason : I know it's kinda lame saying tissue is my summer time must have item. Who like wiping off their sweat with their shirt? -.- Hanky? NOOOOO!! It will be too dirty. Imaging using the same hanky wiping your sweat for entire day? Absolutely NO!

    And here you're carmen! Those're my must ve items for the summer :P Blog bout yours please! :D

  9. Hi! I've been reading your blog for quite some time ;)

    My summer time must have items would be:

    #2 Face mist. I always bring along a bottle of face mist to keep my skin hydrated whenever I'm outside.
    #3 Last but not least, a non-smudge eyeliner. Eyelids easily gets oily during summer time. So a non-smudge eyeliner will comes in handy when completing my summer make up ;)

  10. Greetings to you Carmen :)
    Such warm and bright summer we are having this year. Thank you for having this gorgeous giveaway. praying on my lucky star :D

    What is your summer time must have essential item and why?
    1. Sunblock lotion is definitely number one on my list as we stayed in such humid and warm climax. Our skin is our largest protective barrier and should not be neglected. Hence, we can enjoy the summer without worrying harm on our complexion :)
    2. Next is HYDRATION! We need to drinks lots of water to replenish our fluid loss and as well, keeping our body healthy to keep on going.
    3. Last but no least, is wet wipes. As I have sensitive skin, prolong sweat will cause heat rash all over my skin *inner scream*. With wet wipes, we can keep ourselves clean and fresh throughout the day :)

    And these are my verdicts. *Finger cross*

  12. Hye Carmen :D
    I bet it is still not too late for me to wish you Ramadan Mubarak. As you know, we are in the middle of Ramadan which means that Hari Raya is around the corner. And I am so excited ^_ ^ . Who know if I get a chance to win The Sleek I-DIVINE PALETTE, I can wear this makeup and look gorgeous the whole day on Hari Raya and I bet it would be the most exciting Raya ever. Today is the 12th day of me fasting in this summer time. And all I want to say is “ I can really feeeel the summer”. But, I always motivate myself to stay strong to endure all this challenge as it is my obligation.
    Your question is "What is your summer time must have essential item, why?"
    My answers would be :
    1) Water to Stay Hydrated the whole day. I will drink plenty of water but hey, it does not mean that I drink water during the day time (nanti orang kata I tak puasa! Haha). Instead, I will drink lots of plain water during the Iftar (Break Fast) and Sahur (eat early in the morning) and balance it with any Juices to ensure that my body consume enough water and energy to enable me to go through my fasting during this summer.
    2) Sunblock is also one of my essential items. I remember that my biology teacher used to tell me that living in Malaysia, we should apply sunblock every day. If possible, wear a sunblock with the highest SPF because it is really will protect your skin from any sunburn ( yeahh, I have made my own experiment on it by applying sunblock with the highest SPF every day and my skin is ZERO Sunburned even though I always exposed myself with the outdoor activities ) And I am Happy!
    3) It is summer, and I can’t bear the fact that my skin is dry due to the hot weather. All I can say is that I can’t live without Moisturiser. Body moisturiser and my face moisturiser is my best companion every day and it is my must have essential item especially during this lovely Ramadan/summer.
    I am so happy reading your blog because it is cute. It is simple but all the photos are Woww!
    Hopefully I can win your Summer Giveaway and enjoy your summer Carmen ^_^

  13. Hi Carmen. Im ready for your giveaway!

    My summer-time must have essential are

    #1 BIKINI - Summer is nothing without bikini! we have enjoy the sun while summer last!

    #2 SUNBLOCK - We all know how scorching sun can damage our skin and we must really take good care of it. It's better safe than never right?

    #3 Natural eye makeup palette - apart from always heading to the beach, we malaysians still prefer hanging out with friends right? And of course we need natural makeup for summer time so we don't look like we're trying too hard to look pretty during summer time. We girls must always look good in any occasions!
