Dark to blonde, blonde to dark, dark to blonde again.

Pop by at Modern Style Salon last weekend for a color change! And yes, blonde again. I’m never adventurous when it comes to my hair, it’s always in the “safe range” and hence I’m losing my opportunity in trying out more pretty colors that Modern Style is offering! While I was doing my hair, another lady beside me did reddish purple and it looks AWESOME. I swear I will pluck up my courage to try that soon!

 
This time round I asked for blonde with platinum blonde highlights, that will make me look like an ang moh hehehe!

 

 

Girls if you want blonde, you will definitely have to bleach your hair!!!! There is no such thing as getting a high lift color without bleaching, it is definitely not possible. They might not be using bleaching powder, but they will use lightener (which is as good as using bleaching powder) so it does not make any difference, you are still BLEACHING YOUR HAIR.

 

And bleaching is definitely damaging for our hair. But if you go to the right salon, they will take good care of your hair without damaging it even though you bleach it.

 

Here’s how Tonny (my stylist from Modern Style Salon) bleached my hair. He applied a pre-treatment/protective layer before coloring and bleaching to prevent it from further damage.

I’m engaged!

Yes as the title suggests, I’m engaged!

 

This proposal wasn’t anything fancy but just a simple lunch at the SEA  Aquarium. The both of us doesn’t like the attention or going down on the knees sort of thing, SEA Aquarium was nice enough to offer him to get a diver to swim pass with a “Will you marry me” banner. Hahahahahaha but luckily no cos he paiseh LOL. He told me that he wanted to book the helicopter tour initially but then they don’t allow camera on board hence it will pretty much defeat the purpose.. lol I will actually kill him if he had book the heli tour as it cost like $2500 for 45 mins ride?!

 

Anyway, thank you SEA Aquarium staffs for being so thoughtful! They gave us a mini cake as a celebration. The food they served was awesome and the ambience was splendid as well!!!

Hehe thank you bun for the 1ct kekekekekekeke I wish it was a 2ct though AHAHHAHHAHAHA JUST KIDDING.

 

We haven’t plan for wedding yet but it definitely wouldn’t be so soon as we have something else that we would want to venture into before we settle down.

 

I have totally no idea where should we start from in planning for a wedding either. Pre-wedding shoot? Banquet? Auspicious date? Or ROM? We aren’t sure if we really want traditional kind of wedding as well, or shall we? It’s too much to look into for now as we’re both busy with our work.

 

A wrong move 2 years ago was to queue for a BTO flat. As we were both only trying our luck for the 1st time in getting the ballot for the BTO just right opposite his parent’s apartment and we got it LOL. No idea if we’re lucky or not……. our queue number exceeds the amount of flats but eventually we got a unit still. Hahahahahaha.

 

Here’s the progress of our project:

It is really progressing at a speedy rate and estimated to be done in mid 2016. And that means we have to get married by 2016/2017? I wonder if we have sufficient time to plan for all the wedding necessities??

 

Anyone facing the same issue as me? Or is 2 years sufficient already?

How to treat uneven skin tone?

Howdy! No people, my blog ain’t dying it’s just that I’m too busy at work sometimes I don’t even get to touch my laptop and let alone blogging. But I’ll still keep my interest and hobby going – to blog on and to recommend what’s best for my readers. And if there’s anything anyone of you who wants me to cover on my blog, do drop me an email!

 

And lately I’ve received many people commenting that my skin complexion improved alot! My skin’s main problem was the UNEVEN SKIN TONE which had affected me alot. It had greatly demoralized my self-esteem and it’s something that couldn’t be covered just by makeup alone. Yes that’s the worse part. Thanks to my itchy hands that can’t keep to itself when I had zits in my teenage years. REMEMBER NOT TO SQUEEZE THEM IT WILL BE AN IRREVERSIBLE ACT THAT YOU WILL REGRET FOR LIFE.

 

You can’t get your baby skin back anymore, but YOU CAN IMPROVE YOUR SKIN CONDITION AGAIN.

 

If you scroll down you would have known I’ve been to O Medical Clinic to try their new machine – VenusViva. It’s only my 4th session with them and I’ve got really good comments from my friends, family and even my clients! So I presume that really helped me alot based on many people’s comments? I was pretty skeptical about it initially cos I’ve tried many ways from laser to peeling to different kinds of skincare products and……… it’s saddening to say that not only they are costly, they don’t really work well on my skin either. FYI I paid for all of them, not everything comes free for a blogger lol.

And here’s my skin condition after the 3rd session, my uneven skin tone smoothen by a good 60-70% and pores are refined by ALOT. And now the main problem on my skin is some blemishes and bad freckles. Because I’ve done too much laser and peeling before that led to my skin being much thinner and sensitive hence it’s easier to get freckles. That is the reason why we should slap on LOTS of sunblock after laser and peels, same goes for VenusViva treatment.

Numbing cream is a MUST for this treatment cos even with numbing cream, the pain level for me is about 5/10. It differs depending on the duration of the numbing cream applied.

VenusViva technology is something different from all the lasers out in the market, now you’ll see why…………..

Saw the rows and bars here? They are actually made of many tiny weeny needles. So in every shot these tiny needles will actually go deep beneath your skin. Sound painful? Yes it is, however it is bearable and I think it’ll all be worthwhile hehe.

This is how red it will look like right after the treatment. Redness will subside in a day and you can still apply BB cream.

I love this technology absolutely much and I can’t wait to share this with all my readers! You can go for this treatment to maintain your skin and not only for uneven skin tone.
They, too, have many different kinds of treatments for troubled skin etc.!

VenusViva Part2

Here’s an update of my skin condition after the 1st session with O Medical Clinic on VenusViva.

 

Scroll to the post below you might find my 1st session with them, and here’s a picture before VenusViva laser treatment:

And this after pic, taken just right before my 2nd appt (2 days ago). My face has much more glow in it! And scars definitely lessen by like a good 20% – 30%:

I’m really glad with the results in just 1 treatment! However, a few more sessions of treatments will be needed to see better results! I will record my progress as time goes by.

 

So the nurse will assist you in cleansing your makeup (if any) before applying the numbing cream. Anyway it’s Christine who helped me with it and I must really compliment her for her attentiveness. Despite many patients that she meet everyday, she remembers my skin condition on my first visit. She told me that my skin got so much better and it’s progressing well (then showing me my before picture on their ipad), she even remember that I did not want to remove my eye make cos I want to take before and after pics, hahaha. Such little gestures made my day, totally. Thank you Christine!

This time wasn’t as pain the previous one cos of the duration of numbing cream applied I guess?
VENUSVIVA PLEASE BE GOOD I WANT GLOWY & DEWY SKIN!! *determined*

 

And next up followed by soft mask! That’s to cool down your skin.

 

I think I’m really good at blind selfies, hahaha! I took this photos using my front camera and they are all so nicely fitted in the frame.

Applied moisturizer and sunblock and you’re good to go!

 

Once again, my red face did not fail to bring me weird stares. But not to worry the redness subsides in a day!

 

A selfie at the night right after treatment……..
Right, you’ll see bars and bars of bumpy bumps. That’s normal, and it’ll go away after you wake up the next day.

Modern Style Salon @ Tampines

Pop by at Modern Style Salon a week ago for a new change. Anyway, I really love the location and being tucked in a not-so-busy area though it’s in Tampines Central! I mean, you wouldn’t want it to be doing your hair in a hustle bustle place, yes? Moreover Tonny does more on booking basis, this is how he will dedicate his time and do your hair only instead of doing many customers at one go.

 

Anyways, this time round, I want a THREE-TONE HIGHLIGHT and I showed Tonny the photo of the model’s hair (lol it’s an angmoh, am not going to post that picture cos very bhb hahaha) that I wanted and he had it executed for me!

 

Bye boring black hair for now. I can’t live with the same color for more than 3 months :(

Pardon my tired face, light makeup cos I just did my skin laser!!

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
My hair’s suppose to be black I don’t know why it appears brown here.

 

And yes….. you’ll definitely have to bleach your hair if you are thinking of three-tone highlights too. But no worries Tonny will make sure your hair will still be strong and healthy despite the bleaching!

I’ve sat there for like a good 4 hours? Cos there’s alot of work to be done for such kind of highlights. And definitely, a good stylist is gonna do the job well!

Here’s how it looks like! I really love the platinum blonde strips.

VenusViva the New Skin Resurfacing Machine

Went to O Medical Clinic @ Wheelock Place after my work to get my first session of skin resurfacing done with them.

 

I’m going to review more about the new technology by VenusViva in this post!

 

If you have been reading my blog, you would have know that I have gone through several different kinds of laser for my skin, due to acne scars, blemishes, large pores and also sunspots. I don’t mind spending a little just to get my baby smooth skin back. I think little make up is needed or even no make up once you have glowy, healthy and dewy skin. Cos I really hate to be slapping on make up on my skin to clog up the pores even more, it’s definitely a chore!

 

I can’t wait to be confident once again without my make up!!!

 

So girls, if you are facing the same issue as I do, READ ON!

My skin feels sore, hot and tight after the treatment. And I would say the pain level is about 7/10 even with the help of numbing cream. I can’t imagine it without!! You will feel tiny weeny needles each time they apply the shots. Ok but I’m one who can endure pain so I was still pretty calm throughout. I’m the kind of ai sui mai mia one so I will endure anything for beauty sake hehehe.

And then the lovely nurses will help you out with the mask aftermath, and that’s to soothe your skin. After which they will apply moisturizer and sunblock and you’re DONE!

 

Remember your shades too!!! It helped me to cover half of my face in case people give you weird stares at your face.

 

Here’s 2 picture update on my skin after the treatment:

Day 1 after the treatment.
You can see many boxes on my face lol that’s because this is how the laser looks like.

 

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

 

Day 3 after the treatment.
Part of the boxes already dried up as you can see hahaha. And then it will slowly start to peel as days pass by.

 

The maintenance is easy, just moisturize your skin daily and slap on enough sunblock before heading out!

 

You will probably need about 6 treatments(depending on the condition of the skin) to see full results. I’M DEFINITELY GOING FOR IT!!!

Their hairstylists were all so attentive, friendly and helpful. They will go extra miles just to put a smile on their clients’ faces. I think that added bonus points in my impression towards the salon! Moreover, Modern Style salon feels really homely cos it’s like a business run by a family which gives me a cozy feeling!
