Birthday gift from Sephora

Picked up my little gift from Sephora yesterday, I chose the Tarte lips and cheeks over Caudalíe.

I can’t wait to put them on first thing in the morning today, and I love the natural tone it sets on my face, it’s like make up with no make up 🙂 

Thank you Sephora!


I really like the mini size because they fit perfectly in my tiny purse

New hair color 

Finally, I decided to color my hair. 

It’s been almost 8 years having my natural black hair


I have always wanted an ash brown color, but after a few tries 8 years ago, I couldn’t get the right color I want. Maybe I went to the wrong places in the past, that they never did it right? So, I embraced my natural black hair ever since.

There is this hair stylist I went to for the past two years for my regular hair cut, who always have a very nice hair color on her. I asked her during one of my most recent hair cut if she can do an ash brown color for me, which has a tiny green shade. She said yes.

Today is my hair color appointment, and it started at 11am.

Final bleaching


After went through three parts of hair bleaching, I was shocked to see the color of my hair! I started to worry if the outcome is what I am looking for…

Final hair color


After 5 hours of the entire hair coloring process, the final hair color is indeed what I am looking for. I was rushing to get out of the salon without taking a finished look picture, because I was afraid to be late for my dinner appointment. 

Once I got home, I styled my hair with a really cool T3 auto-rotating curling iron.

How can I miss the pic of my supercool curling iron


All ready for dinner


I am really loving my new hair color ❤️️❤️️❤️️

Love that I had a great time spending my birthday with my buddies and bffs! Surely, with yummy food 😋

Ole Henriksen Power Bright

Taking advantage of Sephora VIB 20% off discount, I got myself a new product to try, Ole Henriksen Power Bright.

I did not feel the extreme tingling sensation as a lot of the reviewers said, instead it’s very mild. I hoped I followed the instruction right?!

I know it’s not magic, but I can’t see major difference on my face after washed. My face does feel softer like after applying a mask.

The box comes with 6 treatments, hopefully magic comes after 6 used 🙂

Disappointment 

I rushed home on Friday evening because I couldn’t wait to try on my Dyson Supersonic hairdryer that arrived this morning. 

Such a pretty looking hairdryer which the color match my favorite Dyson cordless vacuum. But once I used it on my fresh washed hair, I am super disappointed with it. No doubt on the high speed air, but it did not cut down the drying time much compared to my regular Conair 1875 Watt hairdryer. Besides, the over powerful air speed actually messily dried my hair in tangled! 

Yes, this is a big disappointment!

Ballet Flat Hunting

I have been longing for a pair of comfortable, yet elegant looking ballet flat for my travel, which usually requires a lot of walking.

I finally found this cute pair of shoes in Bloomingdales.com on sale. I was worry that the laser cut design leather might cut into the back of my ankles.

It arrived yesterday but I didn’t have the time to unboxed it yesterday. This morning, I couldn’t wait to unboxed it and try them on.

I am definitely a happy camper! They are so comfortable on my feet!
