The Perfect Arch

Two months ago, I attended the BDJ Rendevous: I Dream therefore I Can event. It was a day filled with self-motivation lessons and fun activities organized by Belle de Jour Power Planner. There were lots of prizes courtesy of sponsors. The last activity was about sharing your learnings from any of the talks, and only the first fifteen girls who could make it to the front would win. I was one of those lucky fifteen girls. (^_^). And from it, I won a Browhaus Gift Certificate of one Brow Construction service worth PhP 580! Yay!
Last Saturday, I decided that it was time for me to redeem this privilege. Instead of joining the long queues for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, I went to Greenbelt 5 and searched for Browhaus. The first weekend of any blockbuster movie is said to bring people to the cinemas and abandon everything else. It was different with me, however, I skipped the cinema for some well-deserved pampering.

The concierge instructed me to go to the fourth floor, where Browhaus was located. However, I got lost along the way. Greenbelt is a labyrinth of a shopping mall. Thankfully, I found the lone escalator leading to the fourth floor. But when I got there, all I saw was a blank white space. I mean, there were no stores, and only restrooms were seen at the left side. I asked the restroom janitor about Browhaus and he happily led me to a narrow pathway, which opened up to a spot full of skin clinics. Finally, I made it to the Browhaus boutique! :)

The place was warm and cozy. It reminded me of the inside of a submarine. Doors painted with green had a ship’s steering wheel on it. Floor was carpeted, walls were beautifully painted, and the interior design was shaped avant garde in circles and other geometrical shapes. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It was a gorgeous place offering top-of-the-line services!

The receptionist gave me a warm smile when I handed her the GC. After about five minutes of waiting, I was immediately called for a session. Woah! Now that is fast service! I was accommodated by a Browhaus therapist named Venus, who was more than happy to serve. Venus was the one who started the conversation, a gesture that I highly appreciate. :) She led me to one of the submarine-like doors, which turned out to be private rooms.

Venus looked at the state of my eyebrows with a very keen eye for details. Along with it, she asked basic questions like who shapes my eyebrows and what type of method was used. After that, she let me lie comfortably on a special chair (looked similar to what dentists use) and began putting liquid solution to my eyebrows.

The method that Venus used was Threading. It is called such because a thread is literally used to remove hair. Venus told me beforehand that it entailed tolerable pain. Fortunately, her hands were gentle enough that I felt lesser pain compared to what I expected. The whole process took about ten minutes or so. At the end of the threading process, Venus handed me a mirror and I like what I saw! There were two perfect arches framing the windows of my soul! (^_^) Venus then put cold gel to my eyebrows to relax the muscles and the pain immediately disappeared. She also told me that threading is recommended every three to four weeks to maintain the shape. That concluded the eyebrow construction session. My therapist did an excellent job!

I will never forget what Venus’ compliment before I left the clinic. She said, “Ang ganda ng kilay mo!” (Your eyebrows are beautiful!) (^_^) Here is a closeup photo of my newly shaped right brow. See the perfection that Venus did. It is arched just right and it is not overdone.

Before I left Browhaus, the receptionist gave me a business card and told me that I am welcome to go back. I also have the option to choose the same therapist. With the speed of service, cozy place, and friendly people, for sure I will be back.

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
