[Review] Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File

Some people believe it's not necessary to have pedicure. It's like "No one ever sees the bottom of my feet, why bother?" But trust me, the feet can be a handful if it's not maintained consistently. Layers of flaky dry skin can build up which will hurt and crack if they get too thick. It's the everyday lifestyle and environment that causes rough skin on the feet. It is difficult to avoid due to dry cold weather, soapy water, wearing shoes without socks or even just by being barefoot. This leads to infections if one do not go for pedicure frequently.

I'd go to the nail parlor at least once every month to keep my feet smooth and healthy but I don't have to anymore, thanks to Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Electronic Foot File. Scholl as the leading foot care expert came up with this innovative electronic foot file is simple yet handy and designed for ease of use. I can achieve beautiful and velvety smooth feet effortlessly with this foot file. The best part is I can have beautiful-parlor-finished feet at home instantly without going to the nail parlor.

The roller head has a slight rough surface which removes dead skin cells on my feet effortlessly without hurting it. The roller head is washable and widely available too!

Check out how it works! It exfoliates and removes dead skin and calluses on my foot. There is also no concern about any pain as the roller will automatically stop when there's too much pressure. Look at the amount of dead skin cells on the black background and roller head, just within few seconds of the exfoliation process.

End result:

It does help to remove dead skin cells and calluses - the result is noticeable instantly. My feet felt much softer and I can feel my foot's sensitivity got higher (in a way my feet can feel the ground better). It felt a lil ticklish initially but I got used to it very quickly. I love this foot file because of my hectic schedule, I am able pamper myself with a pedicure session at home and achieve smooth and healthy feet easily. I can say that Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi is good to invest on and you can save a large sum of money from visiting the nail parlor. Remember to love your feet, too!

GUINNESS® and Malaysia: Celebrating 50 Years Together



GUINNESS® has marked it's 50 years of brewing GUINNESS® in Malaysia. As part of the celebration, GUINNESS® unveils three *limited-edition* designs for its Foreign Extra Stout bottles last Thursday during a spectacular launch @ The Intermark, Kuala Lumpur.





The night was packed with GUINNESS® fans and everyone was dressed up stylishly black. Not forgetting unlimited, free flow of Guinness!





Guess what GUINNESS® had to offer us, their very own one-of-a-kind Guinness Infused Ice Cream Float. Who doesn't love desserts? and they have it with GUINNESS®!! ♥ 



Yummy in my tummy. My first 'meal' of the day. Good enough!

uri_mh1442223240211

*drum-rolls* The three limited-edition design bottles! 

Each of the bottle is bursting with vibrant colors and intricate patterns, a total opposite from the brand's iconic black and gold visuals. The designs are inspired by the wealth of history and culture of our country, Malaysia. Don't worry about the glorious GUINNESS® inside - it's still the exact same formula and taste throughout the years. Nothing changed!

Guinness is so inspired that each limited-edition design represents a distinct era in Malaysia's journey and they even portrayed it during the remarkable launch event.



The very beginning of GUINNESS® in Malaysia, stretching back to our tribal roots.


During the era, through to the age of independence.



& now, leading into the modern day and looking ahead to the future.

20150910_192913_mr1442041972836

The present of course must have me lol.





The Malaysian-inspired designs are created specifically for the Malaysian market, by Malaysians as we celebrate GUINNESS® being brewed in Malaysia for 50 years now. Behind the designs are five luminaries of the Malaysian creative scene, who came together to explore the concepts of history, identity, and culture which have informed the new limited-edition looks.



The three collectable limited-edition designs will appear on all bottles (325ml and 640ml) and cans (320ml) of GUINNESS® Foreign Extra Stout sold in Malaysia from now until November or while stocks last.

Samsung Galaxy Note5 x Trade-up Promotion


Samsung has launched it's latest smartphone, the Galaxy Note5 last Friday and it is probably the best Note Samsung's ever made. The first smartphone that kick-started the phablet trend and became widely-accepted by everyone is 2011's Samsung Galaxy Note.



A Note evolution! (Top to bottom: Note, Note 2, Note 3 & Note 4)


As the latest addition to Samsung's phablet family, the newly launched Samsung Galaxy Note5 has tons of *improved features* compared to the older Samsung Notes. It has a very sleek, shiny and elegant design, so eye-catching that many people could not resist the new Galaxy Note5. With the "S Pen", it makes Galaxy Note5 truly stand out from other smartphones.







❤ Screen Off Memo ❤  



One of the most useful S Pen feature is Galaxy Note5's screen off memo. You can experience the ability to write with S Pen, even when the screen is locked. Now, you don't need to unlock your phone and open an app to write with S Pen. So convenient and easy to create memos with S Pen by writing on the blank screen without turning it on. It's like a blackboard and your S Pen is the chalk, just that you still can edit or erase what you wrote and save it. You're done! 


  ❤ Customizable Air Command ❤ 



The *improved* Air Command is simply activated when you remove the S Pen. It will then form a semi-circle of floating icons, where your apps hover for instant access in any screen. It reveals a menu of most frequently used apps and you can customize the air command by adding up to three apps of your choice too - waiting for you to take action!


❤ Scroll Capture ❤  



With S Pen, long pages that requires scrolling can now be captured as one image. Instead of taking several screenshots of a long piece of text, the Galaxy Note5 enables you to capture more than just the whole screen. Samsung really did a nice job to combine everything together, making things so easy and straightforward. You can add your own notes to the screenshot too, it's so effortlessly convenient.


❤  5.7-inch QHD Super Amoled Display ❤ 



The Samsung Galaxy Note5 has 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 QHD Super Amoled Display, with 518 pixels per inch. The display is blight, has colors that pop and it is super sharp. The best thing is you can tilt your phone pretty much all the way on its side and still be able to read what's on the display! The viewing angles are so great that when you're watching a video, playing a came or just browsing around your home screen, you'll be impressed with its stunning display. 


❤ Handwriting to Text ❤ 


  

On Galaxy Note5, you can open S Note and just start writing a note. Then, use the selection mode and select the handwriting that you wanted to transform and select 'Transform into' text, then it would usually transform everything into text flawlessly. You can share anything you wrote easily with your friends without being messy but neatly efficient.


 16-MP (Rear) & 5-MP (Front) F.19 Camera ❤ 


This is probably my favorite feature in this smartphone. The Galaxy Note5 delivers F.19 wider aperture lens with 16-megapixels. It's the best camera in a phone I've ever come across. A bigger aperture lets in more light, and more light leads to better quality photos, specifically low-light pictures. With the camera app, there are many editing and shooting modes and guide which I absolutely love; the *beauty mode* makes my complexion so smooth and flawless. I can't say enough about it. There are a lot of functions in Note5's camera that are always fun to discover yourself! :)

❤  Live Broadcast ❤ 



The Galaxy Note 5 includes a live-streaming feature that is built right into the phone’s camera app. Samsung partnered with YouTube to build the feature, which enables you to view on any screen that can view a YouTube video. You can now record and instantly share moments in real-time straight from the Galaxy Note5.


 4GB RAM ❤ 



When you have 4GB RAM, you have the power to multitasks with Galaxy Note5. You can chat as you watch videos or surf the net while you're writing a memo. It's natural to have two apps open on the same screen when you have 4GB RAM with Galaxy Note5. 


❤ Dual Sim ❤  



The Galaxy Note5 has a *new* Dual Sim feature. You can use two sim cards in a Galaxy Note5 now. So convenient as you can manage two phone numbers, especially when you're travelling all from just one smartphone. How awesome is that!!
