I Need a Haircut!

When I took a bath this morning, I suddenly noticed that my hair has grown so long I was already having a hard time shampooing it. I don’t know if it’s just my condition (preggy, remember?) or I’m getting bored with my hair.

Is it safe to get a haircut when pregnant? I mean, is there some superstitious belief out there that pertains to it? Sorry, I’m just being careful here not to hurt the elderly people’s feelings.

Stuck at 130

I don’t know if I should be happy or sad about this. Happy, because it means my metabolism is improving. Sad, because after exerting so much little effort in losing weight, I got stuck at 130 lbs. I know, it’s all my fault. I should’ve eaten less when I could.

My big day is just a month away. And I’m weighing 130 lbs. Imagine that. When I looked at my face in the mirror this morning and smiled a bit, I saw a girl in her late 20’s with full cheeks and a double chin. For some reason, my skin also looked quite dry. I need to do something about this. I know I do.

Make-Up Rehearsal

I’ve had my make-up rehearsal with Weng yesterday afternoon. She’s a pro who used to work in Kuwait and she’s gonna be my MUA for my wedding next month. Her rates are quite affordable and that was my first consideration when I finally decided to get her.

Weng was easy to work with. I just told her my wedding motiff and she took care of deciding what look suits me best. But of course I still had the last say. I liked the simple look she did on me, the blending, the nose line, the highlights and all. Speaking of those, I guess it’s not so simple after all. Haha. But still, I got the look I wanted and she delivered. And that’s the most important thing.

Seeing Good Results from my IPL Underarm Treatments at Power Peel Clinic

This post is long overdue, but anyway, better late than never. I had my second and third IPL session at Power Peel Clinic on Panay Avenue on Jan. 7 and 21, respectively. The sessions were two weeks apart, as instructed by the clinic. My goal was still the same: to get rid of my underarm hair.

During my first IPL session at Power Peel Clinic, I experienced some hair fall a few days after the treatment. Some parts of my underarms became hairless already but I could still see some chicken skin which was the product of my plucking history ages ago (I guess IPL doesn’t cure that, haha). I didn’t shave until the day of my second session which was in the morning of Jan. 7. Take note that I only shaved the segments with hair; I intentionally didn’t touch the already hairless parts for fear that the hair would grow again. Makes sense, right?

My First Diamond Peel Experience at Clinica Medicci

It’s been ages since the last time I had a facial, or any facial treatment for that matter. So when I got some loose Paypal money last month and saw diamond peel treatment vouchers at Metrodeal.com, I just had to buy two for the fiancee and me. We used the vouchers last Saturday right after I had my IPL treatment at Power Peel Clinic.

EHow.com describes diamond peel treatment as “a non-surgical procedure in which the skin is exfoliated to remove dead skin cells using actual diamond chips to vacuum the skin away.” Others explain it simply as a mechanical peeling of the skin or microdermabrasion. As I experienced it, it was like a gentle facial treatment that left my face feeling extra smooth, glowing and radiant after. Even the fiancee’s face looked different in a good way!
