Coffee Break: Muslin Face Cloth

Coffee Break: Muslin Face Cloth

LifeStyle
As I mentioned in my review of some different beauty products I’ve tried lately, when I tried “cleansing balms” like Colleen Rothschild and Eve Lom I really, really liked the muslin face cloth they came with for rinsing, but was less sold on the expensive cleansing balm. So I ordered a bunch of muslin face cloths off Amazon to have more muslin on hand, and after about a month of use I’m still happy I ordered these. They wash up easily, have just enough gentle exfoliating power, prevent water from getting all over the sink area, and the cloths dry super quick. These Amazon ones are slightly less soft than the fancy muslin cloths that come with the fancy cleansing balms, but they’re also a lot cheaper — a pack of 10 is $9, versus 3 for $22. I even kind of ...

So, you have met your “happily ever after”; it is probably time for you two to tie the knot and start your own fairytale. Not many can turn life into a fairytale, and we sincerely hope you to be among the few. Things get exciting yet a bit exhausting, for, honestly, planning your wedding can add too much stress.

Does It Really Matter If Uber Leaves Malaysia?

Does It Really Matter If Uber Leaves Malaysia?

LifeStyle
There have been rumours of Uber planning to sell off its Malaysian business to rivals Grab in the wake of its poor performance in the SEA region. These rumours have appeared just after Uber received funding from Japanese conglomerate Softbank, who also has a stake in Grab. In the event that Uber departs Malaysia, Grab would appear to become the sole dominant ride-sharing service in the country, although there have been reports of other ride-sharing services such as Lyft and Go-Jek entering Malaysia. Uber’s potential departure may not bode well for Malaysians in the short-term, but other alternatives may present themselves equally viable as time progresses. Rumours have been rife in recent weeks of Uber potentially selling off its Malaysian operations to direct competitors Grab. Whi...

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Metallic Tweed Jacket

LifeStyle
Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices. If you’re on the hunt for a good gray tweed jacket, Rebecca Taylor always seems to knock them out of the park — this particular one has a deconstructed look with the frayed ends that’s quite cool. I like it as styled here (column of color!) with the scarf in the tie-neck blouse being a nice additional element. The jacket is $495 at Nordstrom. Metallic Tweed Jacket Two lower-priced options are at Nordstrom and Amazon, and Nordstrom also has a plus-size option.

Mackenzie Anne Smith is a woman after my own heart. What makes us kindred spirits, you ask? It’s simple: our shared belief that everything tastes better with a carby starchy doughy element.

Experts Reveal 10 Relationship Secrets to Make Your Partner Feel Special

LifeStyle
People say that Money can buy everything under the sun but Love. This fact is true to a large extent. Two relationships are very close; one that is between the mother and child, and the other is between couples. The relationship between a mother and child is special because the mother holds the child for nine months in her womb and the child is a part of the mother’s body. Similarly, the relationship between a man and a woman is special, especially if they are wedded to each other because they exchange body fluids during intercourse.  Ten Secrets to make your partner feel special   Here are ten secrets on how to make the second relationship mentioned above a quite special one. Many times, with the rigors of practical life setting in after a marriage has crossed three years, the c

10 Of Jobstreet’s Top Employers That Are Hiring In February 2018

LifeStyle
We usually serve up jobs here every month. This time around though, because we’re still in one of the peak hiring seasons of the year we’re going to curate a list of companies with a lot of openings for people to sign up in—especially those with multinational or career-expansion dreams. These are what Jobstreet calls some of their top employers—companies that hire the highest number of employees on their platform. Similarly, the number of jobs offered per company is pretty extensive as well, so there should be something for everyone no matter their specialisation (or lack thereof). Do note that this could also mean that the companies have higher turnover rates, or that competition is steep—both during hiring, and once you’re in the company. In no particular order, some of
