Advertorials Category Archives - NARCISSISM IS NECESSARY

Archive | Advertorials

If you are not yet insured, please read this to the end.

Do you know that Malaysians are generally under-insured, which is a worrying trend?

I think it’s important, no, I think it’s compulsory for every single person to be insured. Most of us have an inflated sense of longevity when it comes to our lives, sometimes bordering on arrogance. But the truth it, circumstances do catch us when we least expect it.

Liam’s premature birth for instance. I would not have guessed that I would give birth to my son prematurely. I wasn’t overweight, I had perfect pregnancy health and everything was fine. Yet, he came out 2 months earlier and NICU bills completely shattered both mine and my husband’s savings. I wish I had listened to a few friends who recommended that I buy maternity insurance as it would have lighten our burden significantly.

Believe it or not, I also didn’t get any medical or life insurance till I was in my late 20s. I wish I had gotten one earlier because the premium would have been a lot cheaper.

I guess in some ways, I hadn’t purchase insurance earlier was because of how complicated it seems. I had to find reliable agents, meet up, listen to their pitches, get medical check-ups and many more. How I wish that UforLife was around when I was shopping for the right insurance for me.

UforLife is the simplest, instantaneous, straight-forward and affordable way for everyone to be insured or increase life protection. It is the first online insurance platform that allows e-policy to be issued immediately after the registration and payment process is done, which only takes up to 10 minutes.

# – It’s really easy to purchase a policy for yourself.

With premium as low as RM9.85 per month for an amazing RM100,000 coverage for life insurance, you can get coverage up to RM500,000 without doing medical check-up! Grim as it sounds, in the event of death by accident, your loved ones will receive double the amount of benefits.

For more information, log on to www.uforlife.com.my or www.facebook.com/uforlifemalaysia.

Now please excuse me while I go buy a few some life insurance policies for myself, my husband and Liam.

Beauty & Your Fortune – a workshop by The Sloane Clinic™

I attended a Mian Xiang (face fengshui) workshop many years ago and it was such an eye opening experience. Since attending that workshop, it has made me so much more aware of my face and my features and I do try my best to enhance with make-up or skincare. I mean, why not?

It’s not hard science but you can’t deny the facts that how far one succeeds in life has much to do with his or her face, on top of hard work and good acumen.

According to Business Insider, beautiful people make about 12% more money than people with a nice personality ;)

It’s not just about being beautiful, rather, beauty is the result of a face with good fengshui. So why not? I like the idea of being more successful with beauty as a byproduct by just enhancing my features here and there with non-evasive procedures.

That’s why when The Sloane Clinic™ invited me to Beauty & Your Fortune workshop, I jumped at the chance. One of the programmes was “How your Face affects your fortune”, conducted by Miss Cindy Chew from Soleil Trinity, a professional Chinese Metaphysics boutique consultancy firm in Malaysia, specialising in all aspects of Tarot Card reading, Bazi consultation, Palm and Face reading, Feng Shui consultation and Auspicious Date selection.

The very chic The Sloane Clinic™ at Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur.

I really enjoyed the workshop and it was very helpful as the exact treatment available at The Sloane Clinic™ was recommended for each component of the face. Do you know that your facial features that denote the good fortune are the same one that adds to the face’s aesthetic appeal?

Miss Cindy Chew giving an insight into face reading.

Forehead and Temples.

For instance, good fortune and marital bliss can be enhanced by ironing out deep wrinkles, lighten pigmentation and scars with a treatment called Fraxel Light. This is because according to Cindy, a full, smooth and broad forehead with no visible marks, lines, or scars generally means good fortune and a good career.

Sunken temples are alarm bells on possible extramarital affairs. Similarly, obvious spots, scars or lines on the Marriage House could mean trouble on the horizon for your love relationships.

For achieving a loving and fulfilling marriage, the Voluma High Definition Lift safely gives sunken temples an instant boost, giving you a wonderfully youthful face. Totally going to help in the marital department!

The Eyes.

The eyes are windows to the soul. True that! Sparkling clear big eyes bring luck to one’s real estate and material endeavours but becareful, dark eye circles are indicative of low energy levels and may also imply less affinity with your offspring. FML!!! Is this why Liam is so fussy with me and always bully me >_<

So what can I do besides having a lot of sleep? As a new mom, that’s like impossible haha.

The answer is Botox! And then there’s Thermage, which is a non-invasive radiofrequency treatment to iron out crinkles, lift sleepy, hooded lids and open up your eyes to youth, great health and bright financial potential.

The lips.

The mouth is the most sensual feature on our face. It should never appear dry, because this would indicate a drying up of luck. As long as our mouth is kept moist, it indicates money luck. Huat ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

So have issues with losing $$$? Perhaps it’s your lips. Get gorgeous bee-stung lips with Revitalift Lips. The hyaluronic acid fillers are ideal to soften laugh lines instantly, subtly lift the lip corners into a pleasant smile, and create a stronger and more balanced chin.

The Laugh Lines.

The cheek lines, also called the Fa Ling lines are the lines that start at the side of our nose and curve downward to the side of our mouth (laugh lines). According to Cindy, I have double Fa Ling lines, which means I am very persuasive. Ahemmm.

However, if cheek lines show up before you reach 40 then it means you have had a hard life. The remedy comes in the form of Restylane Hydrolift. It uses fine particle hyaluronic acid to highlight the cheek apples and gently lift laugh lines, while illuminating the face with a vibrant glow and dewy suppleness.

Nose

The nose signifies wealth. The rounder and fleshier the nose, the better the wealth luck indicated. Nostrils should not be too small nor too large and the nose nose must look balanced and smooth. Spots – white or black – are seen as obstacles (FML!!!), and moles at the tip of the nose are regarded as a major sign of misfortune. I certainly need more help in this department than the average pore pack urgh.

Natural fillers on the nose bridge and tip can enhance the height and definition of the nose. Fillers can also smoothen any bump and unevenness on the nose which are said to indicate obstacles in life.

Pigmentation

How about pigmentation? I think every woman I know has personal struggles with this. I do too, and I use foundation to cover.

Uneven skin tone affects the smoothness of someone’s authority and power. This may mean that a person will experience a lot of personal challenges from other people too :(

For splotchy skin, the solution comes in the form of Divine Whitening Program.The best thing is that it has no downtime and even the most sensitive of skin types will benefit from this complexion-correcting treatment as it removes pigmentation, battles fine lines and erases signs of fatigue. Talk about glowing!

Scars

Marks, spots, creases, scars and indentations are all indications of something wrong. The bigger and more prominent the mark, the more serious the problem will be. Hence, any scar on the face is a huge NO NO. The skin should always be clear to signify a smooth life.

So what do you do if you have markings on your face? The Sloane Clinic™ offers the Very Luminous Skin Program, a total skin renewal program that targets all aspects of skin rejuvenation from tone, texture and colour. From fine lines to open pores to scars, pigmentation and skin laxity, this program aims to transform how you look immediately.

There’s also a talk called “Enhance your youth with science” by none other than Dr. Low Chai Ling, the co-owner of The Sloane Clinic™. You can never guess how old she really is from her picture! I was shocked to find out that she’s also a mummy of two! I think if there’s any proof of how good The Sloane Clinic™, just look at the owner!

Dr. Low Chai Ling.

So can you tell what is my life like from my face? To be honest, I am generally happy with my face but after the workshop, I am seriously considering giving an intsy-wintsy bit of lift to my nose as well as clearing all them blackheads. Don’t mess with the wealth spot, hello?

I am practically unpalatable without makeup too, so I would love to get my hands on the Very Luminous Skin Program. What say you? Admittedly my motivation is vanity, but hey I really wouldn’t turn down a possible side-effect of better fortunes!

Vaseline Spray Body Lotion – 5 reasons I am in love with it.

As a new mother, I don’t have the time to luxuriously and patiently slather moisturising cream or lotion all over my skin and I certainly don’t have time to sit around waiting for my skin to absorb it before continuing with chores and caring for my baby. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Here are 5 reasons why I love the Vaseline Spray Body Lotion:

1. Slim and light bottles.

The slim spray bottles is light and a joy to carry around. Now I can moisturise anywhere and anytime.

2. Smart nozzle; no spillage.

Locked.

Opened.
null

The spray nozzle is really smartly designed. Just a simple turn of the top hides or reveals the spraying nozzle so there’s no risk of accidentally spraying the insides of your bag. Or worse, have Liam spraying it into his own eyes hehehe.

3. It’s non greasy so I can use it on my hands and arms.

Love it! It’s non-greasy and absorbs so fast leaving my hands and arms feeling dewy and supple. I often moisturise my arms and hands multiple times a day as they have a lot of contact with water so Vaseline Spray Body Lotion is heaven sent! A couple of spritzs and I feel like my hands have just been to a spa.

4. Easy to use.

As long as you know how to depress the nozzle and spray all over your body in a continuous motion, you will know how to use the Vaseline Spray Body Lotion. It dispenses a fine mist that evenly covers your skin. Just quickly rub in and voila! Instantly moisturised skin achieved! And all it takes is just a matter of few seconds for my skin to be moisturised!

5. It really moisturises my dry legs!

The most dry part of my skin are my legs because it’s simply too much work to moisturise them. With an ordinary moisturising cream, first I have to find a place to prop my legs up (can’t do in bed cause I don’t want to stain the bed), then I have to get just the right amount of cream but I often don’t and find myself having too much or too little, then I have to rub it on my legs and keep rubbing until they absorb. And there’s so much surface area on legs so it just take forever to effectively moisturise my pins.

With Vaseline Spray Body Lotion, it literally takes me 3 seconds to spray all over, then pat-patty-pat and I’m done.

So there, enough reasons to convince you that this is the shiznit? Convenience, speed, even coverage, fantastic moisturising in one sleek can.
