My First Stracurl @ Beauty Brick

I've been growing my hair out for months now, the whole waiting time; I was on the look out for the perfect salon to have it done. Finally, I've decided to get a perm at Beauty Brick.

Here's a little rundown on how my experience went: 

While waiting for Mr. Shin, his staff asked me to look at some clear books of hairstyles so that the stylist would have an idea of what I wanted.

Tables Turned

On my way home from meeting Ruffa and Mike, I got a text message from my younger sister telling me that Mommy (our grandmother) looked like she suffered a heart attack. I then called her phone but she didn't answer; so I just walked hurriedly home, anxious.

I saw my grandmother, awake but unresponsive, she was so weak that she can't even speak. A few minutes later the Paramedics came and gave her the needed medical attention. She didn't have a heart attack, she 
got hypoglycemic and her BP shot up.

Meeting Ruffa and Mike

Ruffa and Mike
I could spend the whole day in front of the PC surfing around the internet about photography. Luckily, with all those hours spent; I discovered a gem right here, Ruffa and Mike a young couple so madly in love so contagious you could see it from the couples in their photos. They're quite new in the business but as I went through their blog, I've never seen an impressive portfolio from an up and coming talent as theirs.

So when my close friend Marion  asked me for some recommendations I just showed her Ruffa and Mike's blog and she was sold with the idea! and yesterday evening we met up with them.

My Challenge + Day 15 Sneak Peek

I saw this video above while I was logging in my Chictopia account. I know I have just been shamelessly plugging most of the time here in my blog just because I really don't have much interesting events happening in my life other than my shop; I'm really happy thrifting beautiful clothes and sharing it to all of you. But upon seeing the video I felt challenged that I need to put up more outfit posts than I should; no excuses. :)

Phase 2: Brown Bag Market Orientation + Sneak Peek

Sorry for the late post guys, I went to the orientation yesterday and then a bazaar in the afternoon; I had so much fun with my lil sis that I didn't get the chance to blog about it right away. Since I brought my trusty camera phone, I shot away :)

This is the first time that I am going to represent my shop personally so I was really anxious about meeting the veteran concessionaires, but I just thought that I too has the same passion that they have for their shops, in the end I was just overjoyed and happy about meeting people that were as hyper as I am in talking about our business.

The orientation was at 10 am; surprisingly I arrived earlier than expected hehe...since I was the early bird, I helped out Nori, the event organizer in distributing the materials for the orientation.

Free Fliers!

Shooting Boudoir Style Photos

I blogged a couple of days ago that I was going to shoot photos of my friends boudoir style ( Thank God for supportive/ "kikay" friends). Here are a couple of my post processed shots.

Historically, the boudoir formed part of the private suite of rooms of a lady, for bathing and dressing, adjacent to her bedchamber, being the female equivalent of the male cabinet. In later periods, the boudoir was used as a private drawing room, and was used for other activities, such as embroidery or spending time with one's romantic partner. (source)

Day 4 Flea Market Sneak Peak: Gray Eyelet Dress*

I initially thought that this one's a cardigan, but as I closed all the buttons and photographed in on the mannequin, I realized that it looks better on its own :) I just love  the eyelet skirt and the fit of the dress. I can just imagine wearing this dress with my red flats and I'm good to go! :)
