What Color?

Moonstone or Amethyst?

Last week I had my hair bleached for the fifth time. I want to achieve platinum, but I guess my hair’s just as stubborn as I am. Some part was near platinum but most of them was light yellow. I thought of having it bleached again after a day, but I noticed some hair falling and breaking so I decided to just color it as it is.

I’ve been in love with coloring my hair since I was high school.  Of course I opted for neutral shades like light brown and ash blonde so that It wouldn’t be that loud. After high school I experimented with bold colors like fiery red and hot pink. I always loved coloring my hair since it was the only thing I can do to give my hair its own personality. (I had deep frustrations of not able to do emo bangs because of my curly hair)

I ordered two hair dyes because I’m fickle minded; Moonstone and Amethyst. I literally had to let 2 effin days pass after the orders came because I was not decided which one to use first. I even made a poll in my ig story to let people vote. 80% voted for amethyst, but I hate to break it to you folks, I AM STUBBORN.

So last night, around 10:30 PM, I made a decision. I called my personal hairstylist –charot- (My husband) and he colored my hair blue.

His pills, his hands, his jeans
And now I’m covered in the colors
Pulled apart at the seams” (Colors-Halsey)

 

BUT, be sure to bleach your hair evenly and as much as possible when coloring blue tones, bleach your hair until it’s platinum blonde, because yellow + blue = GREEN! (Yep, I have some blue green hair)

When I woke up I had the perfect dress and shoes in mind to complement my new hair color.

A black dress…

and neon pink Vans.

Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines.

No matter how you love your work, there will be days when you want to breathe outside your workspace and enjoy a different vibe and atmosphere; a 6hour trip to the beach perhaps? 🙂

These past few days, I had difficulty processing the things I need to do. I was constantly forcing myself to sleep so I can rest my mind.

So yesterday; November 15, 2017 we decided to take a short break. Luckily there’s a 1-hour drive beach from the city.

Look at this amazing view.

 

Of course I had to drag my husband to take a photo of me. 😀

The sea foams, the sound of waves splashing, the wind making beautiful sounds, the beautiful sea glistening under the sun. Ahhh! LIFE! I’m glad I had the chance to recharge.

Insert cliche caption. LOL. 😀

 

Ending this post with something I was so conscious about. But hell yeah! F*ck society’s definition of beautiful. ❤

As I sat here, drinking my overrated frappe and writing this piece, I thought of the 90s; music, fashion, culture. Being born in the 90s, I had a pretty share of fan-girling over boybands and Britney Spears. But most of you don’t know, I was also in love with 90s alternative. I can vividly remember how my mom teased me of having a crush on Bon Jovi, how at age 7 I already memorized the lyrics of Semi-Charmed Life, and my ultimate dream was to be Alanis Morisette (Yep).

So yesterday, I had this “grunge feels”. I dressed up thinking about the early 90s alternative when it was having it’s transition from 80s punk rock (Think Simple Minds).

I was so in love with the packaging at first, when I tried to swatch the “Lead Zeppelin”, I was blown away ❤

My favorite liquid lippie as of today is Happy Skin’s Glam Up by Sarte.

 

How do I look in green again?

Heyah!

After almost 4 years of indefinite leave from the blogosphere, I’m back!

I can’t contain my excitement as I share with all of you some tidbits of my life, the experiences, foods, places and some OOTDs.
