I’ve not been sharing any post lately mainly because I’m having an issue with my Samsung NX 3300. The wifi was not functioning therefore, I was not able to transfer images. I’ve had this camera for almost 1 and a half year and brought it back to the shop for warranty repair. Sadly Samsung Malaysia stopped camera production, so they don’t have the spare part to fix my camera. The seller offered me a reasonable amount for me to buy another camera and I started researching online for the camera I’ve heard great things about- the Canon G7X Mark ii.

I have to say I did a lot of research from reading articles and gone through a lot of Youtube review videos on the Canon G7X Mark ii before I decide to make the purchase. The very common things that I came across about this camera are “Best Vlogging Camera”, “Best Compact Camera” and even “2017 Best Camera”.

2017 Best Camera- Canon G7X Mark ii

Canon G7x Mark ii

I won’t be sharing things that are too technical or go too deep about the specification because I don’t usually shoot in manual. Just my honest review about the Canon G7X Mark ii, judging from the way I would make use of it and I’ll start with the packaging itself.

Comes with camera, wrist strap, charger, battery, and manual.

I bought my camera at Fotokem One Utama, just in case you are wondering. With the price of RM2,480, it comes with a Camera, one battery, charger and a string holder. Do take note that it does not come with SD card or memory card, and it is better to get a 64 GB because of the high-resolution image at averagely 6 Mb per image. Need no to say if you love to take videos, it will use up more storage.

Canon G7X Mark ii

There’s different mode for you to use if you are a manual user, I often keep it at auto whenever I shoot. The good thing about it is the dial around the mode allow you to adjust the aperture. [Aperture is basically the brightness setting]

The best thing that I love about Canon G7X Mark ii is the touch screen feature and you can flip all the way up or 45 degrees downwards.

Screen tilt 180 degree upwards or 45 degree downwards (Image credits to AskLens)

The 45-degree tilt screen allows you to take flat lay photos and high angle photo conveniently while being able to look at the screen. Besides, it has a built-in pop-up flash and most importantly no extra lens cap. That is really convenient for most people because we often misplace our lens cover. [and we don’t want to spend $$ just to buy a lens cover]

The images quality are amazing really and it is especially good for a Low light condition with great stability. I’ll share a review through Youtube video to show the Canon G7X Mark ii, low light and stability performance. [Stay tuned!]

Overall I love the Canon G7X Mark ii performance and very satisfy with it. Show some ♥ if you like what you see!

Trust that many of beauty fanatic heard of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment or a.k.a Vampire Therapy. Kim Kardashian posted a picture of her after the Vampire Therapy and it just went viral overnight! (Power of KIM KIM😯) As a beauty fanatic myself, I was tempted to try the PRP treatment ever since I heard about its existence.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet Rich Plasma is a therapy where blood are drawn from your body and then blood are placed in a machine. The machine helps to separate the blood cells, platelets and serum. The platelets will be reinjected to the face area the required treatment. The platelets help the body to repair itself by releasing growth factors, stimulating the skin cells to generate new tissue, in addition to improving skin tone as well as the rate of collagen production. This helps the skin grow back healthily, appearing more vibrant and plump.

I will be sharing my PRP treatment at Premier Clinic for the benefit of all beauty fanatics out there☺️

Consultation with Dr.Zya (Dr. Nazihah Nazim Boyer)

Before the treatment, I went through with Dr. Zya (Dr. Nazihah Nazim Boyer) in regards to the area of my face that I have concerns. My biggest concern were my dark circles, the tiny little bumps on my nose area and cheeks. Dr. Zya (Dr. Nazihah Nazim Boyer) explained the process of Platelet Rich Plasma treatment in detail and ensure I’m clear about the treatment.

Before (Dark Circles)

From the picture above you can see my dark circles and the little bumps that were my biggest concern.

Dr. Zya (Dr. Nazihah Nazim Boyer) took an amount of blood from me to extract the platelet, there was almost no pain during the process.

Applied numb cream

After the consultation, the beauty assistant cleanses my face and applied the numb cream. I waited around 30 minutes, the beauty assistant wipe off the numb cream.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment

Dr. Zya (Dr. Nazihah Nazim Boyer) started off with my dark circles and then move on my cheeks, she kept me distracted from my needle fear by talking to me.

Overall the pain during the platelet injection was minimal and bearable, all thanks to Dr.Zya (Dr. Nazihah Nazim Boyer) skills.

A picture with Lovely Dr. Zya

If you enlarge the photo you can see my face were with red dots and some little bruises because I have thin skin. The red dots and bruises were normal, I could cover with makeup and go to work right after the treatment. No down time at all! (How convenient!)

2nd Day. The bruises are still there but can be concealed with makeup

 

1 week after, bruises fading
After 2 weeks!

My skin was glow and smooth, I can see the positive result of my dark circles and smoother skin. I think PRP is totally worth a go, especially it came from your own platelet and not those fillers or botox. I do think that ladies you can take up this Platelet Rich Plasma treatment to take care of your skin. Would like to thank Dr. Zya (Dr. Nazihah Nazim Boyer) for making me beautiful♥

Hey Babes♥ I’m so excited to share with all of you that I’ve witnessed the signing ceremony of HWL Jewellery Sdn. Bhd and Swarovski Zirconia, working together to come up with precious jewelry brand named C88 Premier Eternal Sparkles. 

Swarovski Zirconia

What exactly is SZirconia?

Swarovski stated on their site, the tag “made with Swarovski Zirconia” Indicates that the product contains 100% Zirconia that is precision cut and polished by Swarovski.

What makes it so special?

Zirconia is a created stone and it is a perfect simulated diamond in the world. Made exclusively in Austria, the finest raw materials are first carefully sourced, before being cut and polished to perfection by our qualified technicians. The material has a good harness and ranks 8.5 on the Mohs scale. (FYI- Diamond ranks 10, while Crystal ranks 6) They are ideal for everyday use, high resistance to daily wear and tear, and Zirconia is not glued but always set- like diamonds.

Wonder how does the Swarovski Zirconia C88 Premier Jewelry looks like? Let me show you a sneak peek of the jewelry that was showcased.
