Hair Story: REVLON

I want to change the color of my hair to blonde since the beginning of this year but God knows I'll never hear the end of it from my grandparents. I always ask my "stylist" to dye it lighter every time I visit the salon but of course bleached blonde is still different from the lightest brown. My trip to Hong Kong last June, I found a blonde dye and decided to give it a try (it's still not blonde but the outcome is perfect). I've been using it ever since. ❤

Last saturday I got free treatment from Revlon Professional PH (yay!). I feel bad to only get color treatment cause I just had my hair colored the day before, boo. I should've gotten highlights.

So I opted for scalp treatment instead of a haircut, I'm growing my hair 'cause holidays are around the corner already.☃ Anyway, the stylist recommended color treatment to make my hair color lighter and shinier (and I'm sold once I heard "lighter")  since he said my scalp has no problem. 

I'm not even kidding how soft my hair got after they were done with me and not to mention lighter! I rarely go to salons unless I need to retouch my roots but now I think I'll visit more often. :) I love love love my soft and even lighter hair now! (And I need to get highlights before the year end).

Leave it to me to always forget to bring cameras every event. ☠

Big big big thanks again to Revlon! ❤


lather up

There's always a part of a house that will be a favorite space, the bedroom or bathroom, even a study room, to relax and call a sanctuary. Mine, unexpectedly and oddly enough is a laundry room. yes, you've read right haha! I don't know why, but it gives me a feeling of comfort and certain peace when I hear the sound of the machine tumbling and frothing bubbles. 

It started two years ago, when I was living in New York and the thought of doing laundry and cooking meals stresses me out. I still can't prepare an edible meal, except that time when I made sandwiches from BJ's ref which consists of ham, bolognese, cheese, and whatever I find that can be eaten which pretty much satisfied our appetite for 3 days straight ^^. Laundry on the other hand, I find exciting, the thought of smelling detergents brings smile to my face already. I learned how to operate the machines rather quickly and next thing I knew I'm looking forward to doing laundry on weekends ☀

I want to have my own space (read: condo) just so I can have a quaint laundry room. Crazy, I know. ❤

color goes a long way

very stepford wives club. the cute tin tubs & detergent jars are hard to resist though
clean & fresh (I don't think I can keep it that way for long though)
I already have a design in mind though, maybe I'll render if I have free time and share it here. Until then ❤
