Looks like my hair is on a roll these two weeks. First a hair consultation and now a hair makeover. Anyway, some of you may remember how I’d griped about my challenge to find a suitable hairstylist at the end of October. Well, I went for a haircut a week after writing that post but I was still not satisfied with how it had turned out. Don’t mind me but I’ve been super fussy when it comes to my hair since I was a teen. So just as I was contemplating if I should swallow my pride and return to my old hairstylist, I received an invitation to have a hair makeover at Backstage Hair Salon. After some humming and hawing at my end, I finally headed down on Sunday with a friend. But I’ll admit I was hesitant. With a name like Backstage, who is to say my hair won’t turn up looking all wayang? Wayang, for my international readers, is the Singlish equivalent of theatrical.
It’s been a while since I was excited about what I wore and it’s all thanks to this new pair of sneakers—the Puma Future Glyde Lite Lo. I haven’t worn sneakers in years and it’s because they’re so flat and they don’t enhance my height. LOL. However, I changed my mind recently and went sneakers hunting. I picked this pair because it goes with my new Marc by Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Isa Backpack. I also had approval from my husband who helped me pick this design. So come with me and check out how it fits with my outfit of the day!
During one of the Saturdays last month, I paid a visit to Thomson Specialist Skin Centre and met up with dermatologist, Dr Tan Hiok Hee, to consult him about hair loss. Well, the purpose of my consultation was threefold. One was to find out about my own hair condition from a clinical standpoint, another was to understand the types of hair loss treatments available and finally, I wanted to know how Thomson Specialist Skin Centre differs from the usual salons that offer such treatments.
When I saw this Cococare 100% Cocoa Butter Stick in my package from iHerb, I was wondering what made me add it in my shopping cart. It’s 100% cocoa butter alright but it’s pretty much a small little stick too. Did I want to use it for my cuticles or did I want to use it for my lips? Maybe I wanted it for my elbows and knees. Beats me! But I really think I got it on a whim, because it’s so cheap and had over 3000 glowing reviews. Anyway, I’ve since discovered a great use for this stick and I’ll tell you in a minute. For now, let me tell you briefly about the origins of cocoa butter and its key benefit.
Many people tell me they want to have joy in their lives but it seems to elude them. These people seem to think that joy is something that finds them. But instead of waiting for joy to happen, you can choose to live each day with gladness in your heart. Yes you can! Stop agonizing over what you don’t have and begin to be joyful in what you already have. That’s a start! You certainly don’t need to have a perfect life before you can have joy. And if that’s still too difficult, perhaps you can consider wearing one of these handmade fashion accessories to remind you to choose joy.
