New Hair Color and Clip-on Extensions by Status Salon

Posted on Thursday, 10 April 2014

Third time’s the charm! It’s only April and I’ve already dyed my hair 3 different colors this year. I solemnly swear to keep my new color longer now that maintenance is much, much easier.

As for my previous color, the ash washed off easily. I take all the blame because I absolutely cannot stand not washing my hair for long periods of time (I know some people don’t shampoo for more than 5 days but umm, no) and I was left with this shade of blonde that I hated with a passion.

My trip to Tokyo was also quite detrimental to my hair because I didn’t bring any of my existing haircare products with me in my luggage. Because SHOPPING! /priorities

Some of the ash remained, making my hair a bit decent-looking in photos. IRL, however, the color looked so uneven that I had to do something about it asap.

These ugly roots. Kill them before they lay eggs.

I asked my hairstylist Jimmy of Status Salon Tomas Morato to choose a healthier, darker shade of brown that is easy to maintain. 

image

We dubbed it as “golden coffee brown”.

image

While waiting, I had my nails done too. Fell in love with this light lavender (ORLY Bon Bon).

image

After washing the dye off, they put some sort of treatment on my hair to make it smooth and shiny. Best part = free head and shoulder massage!

image

Time to blowdry! 

image

OBSESSED! I love my current new hair color because it’s such a perfect in-between shade. Not so light yet not so dark. 

Jimmy recommended that I get a trim but I decided not to. I really, really, REALLY miss my long hair and I’d do anything to get the best of both worlds right now. A trim is something that is unimaginable at the moment.

Good thing Status Salon offers human hair extensions! These are only clip-ons so you can always opt to keep your short-medium length hair on off-days.

image

They dyed the extensions the same color as my hair. You can save a lot of time if you have black hair because they don’t need to dye the extensions anymore.

image

So happy with the result! Now I can go out with either medium length hair or long hair depending on my outfit or mood.

The extensions look so much better when they’re curled but this photo is only to show how many inches I was able to add to my current hair length.

SNSD Mr. Mr. dreams achieved! I couldn’t watch any of their performances without wanting to have hair as long and shiny as theirs. Now, with Status Salon extensions, I can have more hairstyling options!

Thanks Status Salon Tomas Morato branch for the transformation!

#sorryimnotsorry for the annoying word play in the title. I’m very much convinced that this is currently the best peach item in my closet, and that it is so good, I can already see myself abusing it this summer! The style is so me, and I wish it came in other colors too, like pastel yellow or powder blue! When I was in Tokyo, I found some organza-type baby doll dresses in MERCURYDUO. I got one in white though I was still on the constant lookout for pink or peach because of my sakura hangover. Thanks to Just G for always reading my mind and answering my prayers!

Peach (paired with light hair) never fails to give me a nice, golden tan. Cheating with fashion instead of braving the harsh sun? Lifehack for homebodies! :) Thankfully, Just G released so many peach and orange numbers in their latest summer collection to match both the iconic Just G blue and the warm summer heat. Check it out soon!

Just G boutique stores can be found in SM Megamall, Market Market, Sta. Lucia, SM Southmall, Eastwood City, SM North Edsa, SM Manila and SM Cebu. Just G and Gingersnaps share spaces at Shangri-la, Rockwell, Robinsons Metroeast, SM Baguio and SM Pampanga. They also have department store corners at SM Megamall, Robinsons Galleria, Landmark Trinoma, SM Makati, SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Festival Mall, SM North Edsa, SM Cubao, SM Pampanga, SM Southmall and Robinsons Ermita.

Bifesta Cleansing Lotion

Posted on Wednesday, 26 March 2014

Make-up removal is such an important part of my daily skincare routine. I rarely go out with completely zero make-up nowadays, so I have to make sure to take care of my skin properly, or else my face will end up a huge, pimply mess. You don’t want any of your make-up to stay on your skin for too long. You have to let your pores breathe when you go to sleep.

Bifesta

Bifesta cleansing lotions are your best friends when it comes to removing stubborn mascara or waterproof eyeliner and lipstick. When cleansing oil and facial washes still can’t do the trick, count on Bifesta to remove your make-up properly.

It is Japan’s first water-based make-up remover and is immensely popular among Asians who believe in proper skin care. You have to trust the Japanese when it comes to these things because they really have the best skin in the world! I always get surprised whenever I meet someone I think is just around my age but is already 5-10 years older, lol. I totally need whatever they’re having.

I use the MOIST variant because I have dry skin. Bright Up helps in whitening, Agecare helps in deep nourishment, and Sebum helps in oil control. I’ve also tried Agecare too and it works like a charm.

Bifesta

Using it is super easy! All you need is a simply cotton ball and 1-2 pumps of Bifesta cleansing lotion.

Bifesta

Duo black eyelash glue, K-palette eyeliner, CANMAKE eyebrow pencil, Lime Crime Red Velvet, 3 Concept Eyes red lip marker and NAKED3 palette eyeshadow on my very dry hand. You can’t properly remove all these with just soap and water!

Bifesta

Ta-dah! Not a single speck of make-up left. It only took one try to remove most of the make-up except for the stubborn waterproof lip markers. I had to use another cotton to make sure none was left on my hand. You really don’t want to leave any make-up on your skin because it might lead to skin problems and blemishes in the future. Better safe than sorry!

Bifesta

You can experience Bifesta at SM Makati (SM Store Beauty section) from March 27 to April 2! They will be giving away samples if you want to try it out at home or give them to your friends.

Sheen: Golden Glow

Casio’s Sheen line has always been a favorite of mine not only because they got SNSD to model for them, but also because they keep coming up with classic designs that are able to match my jewelry perfectly. Gold is my hardware of choice, so I’m happy that the newest Sheen watch is gold! 

Tricia Gosingtian

I love gold watches so much that I’ve been wearing my gold Casio vintage watches in almost all my recent posts on Lookbook. I don’t know if anybody has noticed.

Maybe too often that Sheen decided to give me the latest model so I can finally change my go-to time piece, lol. Thanks Time Depot as usual!

Tricia Gosingtian

You’ll definitely be constantly seeing me with this watch from now on!

Tricia Gosingtian

This also comes in classic silver to match all your silver jewelry. I’m so tempted to get that too because the design is absolutely perfect!

Just G: A Shorts Story

Posted on Tuesday, 11 March 2014

I know that summer is finally here when I need to open the aircon at night to get a good night’s sleep. I usually save a lot of electricity around January and February, but I’m pretty sure I’m also the reason why the electricity bills go up from March to May. Oops! I absolutely abhor scorching hot weather so expect me to be in malls or anywhere cold the next few months.

My closet’s pants pile has been disregarded for some time now, because I’m all about showing off legs nowadays. The flexibility of layering tops, jackets and sweaters appeals to me more because it’s usually my torso that’s sensitive to temperature changes! My legs need to breathe. Thank you very much!

Speaking of legs, shorts are the best ways to show them off this season! Just G’s early summer collection showcases different kinds to suit your needs. I wore one top (also from Just G) to prove how their shorts can be styled for various occasions!

The simple, everyday look with a twist. The shorts I’m wearing here are actually printed gym shorts! Who would’ve thought? Sporty elements are still huge this season, and as usual, I like juxtaposing them with girly and more sophisticated items.

The boy/girl look. Lace and florals with slip-ons and snapbacks? Yes please!

The laid-back weekend look. Just throw a sweater over your lace top if it gets chilly! 

I also matched my lipstick with the embroidery on my denim shorts because I’m a little obsessive-compulsive like that.

The girls’ night out look. I love this pair of shorts because underneath the black lace is a colorful floral print! Great day-to-night item to have in your closet this summer.
