25 January 2010



phew! my weekend was action packed! i didn't get to laze around just like what jen likes of her sundays.

so...here's my new hair. sported these many layers about 2 years ago and i just couldn't replicate them not even when i went to the same hair dresser who did it in the first place. it's frustrating having curly hair sometimes. hair salons are just afraid to mess with them and they immediately suggest getting it straight which i hate because i love my hair. and believe me, i've tried having straight hair for a day, it bored me to death. i don't stand out at all.  as it turns out, our manicurist studied hair styling a few years back when she used to work at a salon and when i asked her to cut my hair, she happily obliged. she comes to our house every two weeks to get our nails done and when she did my hair, she was using kitchen scissors...haha!

aside from my new hair, i am very much overwhelmed by the number of visits i got over the weekend and the humongous amount of comments too! thank you so much from the bottom of my heart... all your comments really made me smile. it totally made up for all the frustrations at work. *sigh*

what i did over the weekend: cooked harry dinner at his place | read 'lion among men' | did listen to 'the honorary title' | watched legion | attended mass | had dinner with friends | went to the wake of a friend's father | had dessert at dong juan | and wished i had a massage..haha!

boho top - thrifted
black shorts - zara (thrifted too!)
black tank top - dorothy perkins (sister's closet)
beaded sandals - DIY (beads from an old people are people sandals + finickee)
black bag - lil' sister's (notice how she more bags than me?)
bangles - props + aunt's gift
rings - props

Follow vanilla ice cream

Hi Gizelle!

Straighting hair can be a job, but I always try and focus my mind to the ending of the project...:O), it helps. You don't have anything to worry about, your hair is pretty and healthy! And if there was a way I could steal that shirt from my computer screen I would....it's SO CUTE!!!! I look styles that are effortless when it comes to trendy :) Bye :)
