Can’t believe it’s already 6 days into October. Time is really flying by 😱

Last Saturday I finally found the time to fix the mess that was on my head 😑 8 whole months of my hair growing out and my roots just looks ghastly against the dyed ends omona

Truthfully I waited to fix my roots because I had no job then la and spending a few hundred on a visit to the salon seemed very unnecessary.

So now that I finally am back in the workforce and it’s my birthday month (which means 25% off at Black Hair Salon!!!)... it’s time to get that shit fixed lol

So yeah! Not sponsored at all but I want to share about it because I still think Catherine from Black Hair Salon always does amazing things for my hair and I leave the salon happy every single time.

This round I went with an ash brown colour to hide the hideous roots, trimmed the ends (because she says they are horribly dry lol) and gave my hair some body with layers.

AND I did a 5-step hair treatment that is said to be good for at least 21 washes. Seems to hold true so far after a week of washing!

My hair is super smooth and my scalp is cleaner than it ever has been. Having an oily scalp is really the bane of my existence 😑

The treatment costs around $170 (if my memory didn’t fail me) and Cat told me to come back around 2-3 months time to do it again, for a healthier scalp in the long run. I think I just might take her up on that... 🙈

It was really a day of self pampering because earlier on, I went to have my lashes did too!

It’s been about 2 months since my lash lift with Lash Up and since my lashes have grown out (with the help of the Jovisa lash tonic), I thought it’s a good time to go back for another lift!

This time I did the lash lift and tint after seeing how great it was on @sweetpea! My lashes are really fine so I definitely need the help of the tint to make them more obvious! 👀

Before and after.

You can see that my lashes before the lift are still quite curled upwards. Just not as obvious because I’m wearing a layer of eyeliner and my lashes are too fine!

The after look really impressed me - my lashes are gorgeously curled again and it’s soooo much more obvious now, even with my eyeliner drawn.

I have a bad habit of rubbing my right eye so the lashes on that side is a little sparse & much shorter than my left. But no worries cause I have the tonic to help me heh!

I also received a new eyelash coating product that’s said to be designed for extensions but Sam said it works well on natural lashes too. It helps to maintain the curl for a longer period of time ;)

I’ve been using it both night and day and it really helps in holding up the lift better! I would really recommend getting this too, especially if you’re not one to wear mascara often like myself.

Get the tonic too pls!!! Help your lashes grow and grow 😍

Attended dear @missgoob and Wei Pei’s wedding the very next day!!

Their love for each other was overflowing even through the photos!! :’) so sweet one!

Wedding favours looking so good - ombré soap say what!!!

@ccharrmaine said hers is 喜 so that she can go home, bathe with it and get some of their marital luck for her love life hahahaha

So ahem @missgoob, Wei Pei, please help her out a bit ok! 😂🙏🏻 She likes men who are fit, filial and must be 150% trustworthy. Thanks in advance ah!!! 😂

One with the glowing 新娘 👰🏻! So happy for you both, Jiehui and Wei Pei :’) Truly one of the best people I’ve had the chance to cross paths with in NN and to become friends with as well.

Ever thankful! ♥️

Mario just loves bags and this is what happened when I was packing for a staycay hahaha he just helped himself to my bag and wanted to sleep inside.

This little guy ♥️

Giving #innisfreesingapore’s new Jeju Orchid line a try (it’s an improved version!) - just nice I’m running out of my Sulwhasoo sleeping pack sample heh

The purple packaging is just so pleasing and calming to look at at night 😌

I’m not usually one to switch up my entire skincare and try the same line all at once, so likewise for these products, I’ve only started on the Essence and Enriched cream so far!

It feels pretty light after application but it does a good job in keeping my skin hydrated through the night, esp when I sleep in an air con room.

Read that it contains hyaluronic acid which is always a 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 in my books.

Helps that it smells wonderful too! It’s been a week of use and I’m happy to report that I did not break out. Phew! Glad it’s not too rich for my combi skin.

Here’s the texture of the sleeping mask in case you’re interested!

This has lavender oil in it and is a little richer in terms of texture for those who prefer it! I’m a little apprehensive about this being too heavy for my skin, so I’ve nothing to share at the moment.

This line is now available in all innisfree stores!
