Trio Trunk Show is a collaboration between
young local entrepreneurial designers showcasing KL’s latest bold and
contemporary pieces for modern urban living. As part of its 2013 debut, Trio
Trunk Show will launch today’s upcoming designs, focusing on self-crafted
furnishing, luxe accessories and trendy eyewear.
2.How did Trio Trunk Show come
Trio Trunk Show kicked off when a group of
friends decided that a platform for local designers such as themselves were not
readily available. They then decided to create an event themselves to display
their latest range of self-designed, functional art pieces.
3.Who is the target group for
Trio Trunk Show?
Trio Trunk Show is open to anyone and
everyone who loves unique design, creativity and innovative craftsmanship.
4.What makes Trio Trunk Show
different from other events that also sell hand-crafted and uniquely designed
Trio Trunk Show is an event created by young
and up and coming entrepreneurs for young Malaysians who are like-minded. We understand
that it may sometimes be a struggle for local designers to find an outlet to
showcase their work to the public. Hence, we decided to create a “trunk show”;
a small event for designers to display their work to a selected few before unveiling
to the general public.
Ultimately, Trio Trunk Show celebrates local
creative entrepreneurship, identifying modern-day trend-setting items that are
of premium quality and of unique character.
5.Who are the organizers
behind Trio Trunk Show?
The Trio Trunk Show event is a collaborated
effort between Echo & Keera, Bailey Nelson and Ard Krate.

TRUNK SHOW: A NEW CREATIVE MOVEMENT
11.What is the purpose of Trio Trunk Show?
Trio Trunk Show is a new movement for
under-30 Malaysian entrepreneurs to bring forth innovation by showcasing
modern-inspired design and cutting-edge craftsmanship under one roof.
12.What’s next? What’s the future for Trio
We hope Trio Trunk Show will inspire more
local entrepreneurs in the creative field to take part in expanding this new
movement (hopefully hold a trunk show with Trio Trunk Show) and establish Kuala
Lumpur as an internationally competitive trend-setting city.
13.Will there be more brands taking part
That’s the plan - Our goal for future Trio
Trunk Shows is to create a unique community of inventive designers who own a
unique range of premium self-designed, contemporary items.
Okay, guys... Have you heard rumours that deodorant can cause breast cancer? How crazy is that, right? Like, no way I'm going to stop using deodorant. In this heat especially. Even if deodorants do contain harmful ingredients, I mean, I cannot NOT use deodorant. That's totes insane.
Until one day, I did some reading about this issue and OMG, you guys, the chemical laden deodorant that we use everyday contain Aluminium. Now, there are no solid evidence that aluminium-based compounds could cause breast cancer (and Alzheimer's disease) but there are correlations. That's one reason enough for me to totally ditch antiperspirant deodorants.
According to the National Cancer Institute:
Aluminum-based compounds are the active ingredients in antiperspirants. They block the sweat glands to keep sweat from getting to the skin's surface. Some research has suggested that these aluminum compounds may be absorbed by the skin and cause changes in estrogen receptors of breast cells. Because estrogen can promote the growth of both cancer and non-cancer breast cells, some scientists have suggested that using the aluminum-based compounds in antiperspirants may be a risk factor for the development of breast cancer.
So you guys, in my pursue to reduce my risk of cancer and to live a longer, healthier life I decided to make my own deodorant using all natural ingredients. I've been using it for over a week now and I love, love, love it.
1/3 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Corn Starch
3 tb spoon Virgin Coconut Oil (Cold Pressed and Unrefined)
15 drops Pineapple Essential Oil
3 drops Geranium Essential Oil
1 Glass Jar (with lid)
1. Mix the baking soda and corn starch together,
2. Add oils and mix well,
3. Pour into glass jar.
How to use:
I use a popsicle stick as applicator. You can use finger if you want, up to you, guys.
It's so easy to make, guys. And it's way safer and healthier. Plus, who would mind smelling like Pina Colada all day, am I right? I don't mind at all.
Note: You can mix any kind of essential oil you like, guys. You have carte blanche. I just happen to like Pina Colada (very much).
So, ever since I've discovered Coconut Oil, I've been using it for almost everything -- deep hair conditioning, hair serum, make-up remover, body moisturiser and etc. But those are stories for another day, okay?
