Hair Mist

You know sometimes that shampoo's smell is so overpowering that your perfume sort of got lost in it? Especially when you air dry your hair. And especially when nowadays most of the shampoos sold over the counter are supposedly made with essential oils or flower essences.

That's why I like to use very mildly scented shampoo... I would prefer if they are unscented at all! In fact, I have to get something like that since my scalp is sensitive, just like the rest of my skin.

So when I found Chanel's Allure Tender Hair Mist, I was overjoyed. I've been looking for something like this for ever. I didn't know that Chanel came out with something like this before. I stumbled upon this when I was getting the replacement for my Chanel Coco Mademoiselles at the airport. But since this one is Allure, I canceled my plan on getting CM and got the Allure instead.

A soft pink, sheer mist for pampering hair
Light & easily absorbed without drying effect
Leaves your hair intensely, subtly fragranced
Gives you a refreshing & comfortable feel

So now after shower and blow drying my hair, I'd spray some onto my hair and the smell is just heavenly. At RM118 for 35ml, it's an answered prayer!

I'm in love with it!

Brazilian, anyone?

Photo was taken from here.

I have been intrigued about this Brazilian wax... Hmmm... I know there are some salons that offer this service but none has gotten me so interested as the one at The Curve. It's called The Strip or something like that. I first discovered the outlet when I was out & about with Mel & an aunt. It was because my aunt was around that I couldn't ask the girl at the counter about the process etc. My aunt's an old fashioned gal so she wouldn't be interested about it.

I took their brochures but when I returned home that day, it has become Noah's chewing toy and it was shredded to pieces!

Anyway, I will surely go back there and see if I've got the guts to do it... And definitely will be blogging about it. I'm sure it's something new, and private too... But I don't mind sharing the experience. So, look up for my update on that soon...!

I am one of the millions unlucky girls who have a set of very sparse eyebrow. It could be due to the fact that when I was seven or eight, I shaved them off using my grandpa's shaver in an attempt to 'shave off any facial hair I could see'. My mom was furious of course, I was never to be left alone in my grandpa's bedroom ever since. I can't proof this, but I have a feeling that was why they never grow back. Because if you see my sisters and brother, you'd be surprised to see how thick their eyebrows are and mine seems like they are too shameful to show themselves!

And that's why I resorted to having eyebrow embroidery done. I had my eyebrow embroidery done for the very first time two years ago. I found out about it way earlier than that, but I was skeptical... I didn't want to end up looking like the 'aunties' who had their eyes and eyebrow tattooed in permanent green ink! And they used to cost a lot more than now.

The first time I had them done was in a spa I always frequented in USJ Taipan, Veqish Spa. Now, they did good job but I wasn't satisfied. It wasn't good enough for me. So, I needed to wait almost 2 years for the color to fade before I can do a new shape & color. This time, I went to Bluunis in Subang Parade.

The process wasn't that much different from the first one I had. They shaped the eyebrow and shaved off the stray hairs. They then colored in the eyebrow using eyebrow pencil. This is the difference; Bluunis showed you the shape first, to see if you're ok with it before they proceed to the embroidering. After you are satisfied with the shape, you will then be taken to a room to start the embroidering process. Contrary to what the beautician may have told you, it is quite painful. To me personally, it felt like having my eyebrow plucked which was painful because I'd always prefer shaving rather than plucking.

I ended up with thicker eyebrow and the wound being fresh, was sore. But Bluunis provided me with a cream to help soothe and speed up the recovery process. The 'excess' will come out slowly and it took almost a week to see the final result.

The cost is just under RM300, but I'd say that it's worth it! Here's photos:

Day 1: Pardon the 'fresh' face, I just had facial and the embroidery done!

Through Day 3/4 : The color has 'shed' a bit... Almost showing the end result!

After Day 6 : Final result and I don't look like one of the Star Trek characters anymore!
