Thank God It’s Friday!

This week has been busy and long for me. Thank God it’s Friday already. My plans for the weekend are still unclear. But I have a walking-running event for a cause on Sunday (May 29) at the Mall of Asia. It’s dubbed as “End of Hunger: Walk the World” and organized by the United Nation’s World Food Programme (WFP) along with local partners. The event aims to generate funds for their school feeding programs in Mindanao. If you’re interested to join, they have onsite registration, just be there starting at 5:00 a.m.

On a different note, my laser underarm hair removal treatment vouchers are still untouched. I’m positive that I’ll be able to get my first session this Saturday. Time is passing by and so is the validity period of the vouchers. I better use them up or end up wasting them. I guess it’s time for me to set an appointment with the beauty center. But only after I have helped a friend canvass for Smilebox invitations for the upcoming birthday of her kiddo. I better get moving!

Shaving can be tiring, too, as armpit hair grows faster than those in the arms or the legs. I gave up on plucking a long time ago because my armpits had ‘chicken skin’ from it.

Intense Pulse Light (IPL) Laser hair removal is arguably the better way to manage armpit hair growth than plucking, shaving and waxing combined. Compared to the first-known laser hair removal, IPL “uses specific wavelengths of light that deliver greater energies while causing lesser damage to the skin.” In fact, IPL even guarantees permanent hair removal. When I learned about this, I started checking out the prices of IPL laser hair removal treatments in many salons in the metro. I was shocked to find out that one session alone could cost me P3,500 to P6,000. Ouch. I can never afford that. I don’t want to afford that.
