Cosset Me!

Good stuff to share! And before I begin, I gotta tell you that this isn't some kind of advertisement I'm paid to do but it's really something I love so much that I can't stop gushing about it. A friend of mine Sarah recently started her own label of intimate wear named Cosset and it's all made from organic bamboo fabric from sustainable sources.

 They're all basic pieces like boy shorts, thongs, bra and tank tops and they come in basic colors: white, black and nude. It's now a major staple in my wardrobe cos it's OH SO COMFORTABLE!!! It's so damn soft and it feels like cashmere jersey that's silky to the touch and the fabric is so comfortable on the skin. I can't stop stroking the fabric cos it feels so very nice. It's breathable, draws moisture away from skin and has thermal regulating property to give you maximum comfort so it's perfect for our shitty humid weather. And as if that's not great enough, the packaging is so pretty and it's made from recycled material.

For the knickers, the cute box can be reused and it's so pretty. The tank tops come in a hanger packaging and you can use it at home so the whole eco conscious approach really scored some major brownie points with me.

It's currently available at Retail Therapy at Wheelock Place and Avana:J at Pacific Plaza. You can also get it online too but I suggest you head down to the shops to touch and feel the fabric for yourself. I went to pick up mine from Retail Therapy yesterday and I can totally live in it! I told Sarah that if I can walk around everywhere in the tank top and boy shorts, I would cos it's really THAT comfortable. And for the superb quality, they're so reasonably priced! The thongs and boy shorts come in a set of three in the nifty gorgeous box and it's only at $55, the tank top is at a mere $28 a pop which is an absolute steal! The bra they called Bralettes are soft non-padded with no under wire and it's going at $50 for a set of 2. Thing is, it's not a structured bra so if you want something very structured, you'll still have to go back to the conventional bra. But this one is perfect for lazy days and I can wear it to sleep in fact, or wear it under sheer top.

I've been hounding Sarah to make basic t shirts like the 3/4 sleeves with v-neck and round neck and if she's gonna do that, I'll be the first to buy them by the dozen cos the fabric is unbelievably lush. I'm gonna buy a few more of the tank tops cos I wanna have spares so I can wear it to sleep too. So yes, I'm going back to Retail Therapy to get more for sure! Do yourself a favor and pamper yourself by getting something this great! Oh, if you wanna read more, check out their website here.

Hi Bmuses,

like to ask you something. i posted in my facebook regarding my badly peeled skin after i've used retinoid and can tell i am sad/depressed..ok, so a friend of mine came and said "poor thing". i was farking mad ok!!! what do you mean by poor thing?! can't people be more sympathetic by saying encouraging words or cheer u on but rather rub salt to your wound "poor thing" so i replied "you and your sick comment ok! i will not gloat over your misery by saying poor thing, poor girl, so please!!!!" then she shut up

Frankly am i sensitive?

or most people actually are "like that"?

the fact is i will never do such thing to my friend ok so i wonder why people can just type 2 little inconsiderate words to "indirectly" hurt others like that

how will u react if u were me?
sigh, you faithful reader, Tiffi

My mum has good skin. So I just briefly took one of her SKII ( to use, which I assume is a moisturizer. It's good man I tell you! She gave me a small bottle of eye cream before but the effects weren't that great and I stopped using. But my mum's moisturizer is good! I can feel it reacting once I applied it

Hey Tiffi,

Well, the way I look at it is that it really depends on who actually commented it. If a close friend whom I know is a real genuine friend, I probably wouldn't feel offended cos I know the person.

But then sometimes, you just KNOW that some "friends" don't have your best interest in mind and they actually relish on your misfortune. Yes, some people are like that and you simply know who these people are. So if that comment is from someone like that, yes, I'll be a bit cheesed off.

What would I do? Well, I'll just ignore it. But if the person is really very bitchy, I would also say something to bitch back in a non confrontational way. It's a bit like to offend without really offending. My inner bitch would probably reply "Yeah, poor thing I know, now my skin is just a bit like yours. Do you have any advice how to get it better??"

You know what I mean? But you know what? Don't bother! Just ignore it! It's just stupid!

But anyway, I think the retinoid thing is supposed to have a bit of peeling effects right? I know someone who went for it and her face was red and angry too but it went away after a week or two. Did you go see a dermatologist?

Thanks so much for your reply, noted :) thanks for sending thoughts to comfort my heart, appreciated.

yes i did see a dermatologist and is prescribed with some rashes cream to subside the redness. ya, i think i really go too heavy handed that's why it flares up and turn red and angry.:(

You're most welcomed tiffi,

I hope your skin is better. You might wanna try taking Evening Primrose Oil cos it's good for the skin. It's good for health also actually. I take 2 capsules a day and I have very dry skin and I can see that my skin isn't as dry. So might help :)
