Little Things That Made Us Happy #11

2) Saw S and my dad karaoke-ing at home. I love seeing my two favorite men having fun together.

Beauty Paradise

I’m more into grooming nowadays, noooooot just becase I recently made friends with beauty bloggers Harumi & Agnes Oryza hehehe, but also because I simply came to realize that beauty comes from both within and outside. It feels good to look good, and you look good when you feel good. It works both ways, you see?

To take care of my hair, I’ve honestly been a Panasonic Ionity hairdyer loyal user for years because of it’s 'ion' feature which keeps my hair not too dry regardless the heat, so I AM SO HAPPY and excited when I received a press release from Panasonic about the launch of their new and improved series of hairdryers. HOO to the RAY.

There are two new variants: 1) “Nanocare” - which incorporates a unique and advanced nanoe™ technology believed to provide moisture for smoother hair and healthier scalp, and 2) the improved “Ionity” variant with better negative ion conditioning for glossier hair. I think these features are important because us girls use hairdryers a lot. And I’m so happy they have the new ones in pink!

Left: Ionity. Right: Nanocare.

Panasonic also introduced beauty products of other categories. They now have facial steamers, pore cleansers, electric toothbrushes, eyelash curlers, leg-hair trimmers and nail treatment products. Through these all, Panasonic wishes for women to be able to enjoy a home spa experience alongside fuss-free grooming at the convenience of their busy schedule. In short, grooming made easy! :)


Along with the launch of these new beauty products, Panasonic initiated an online competition called "ZOOM IN BEAUTY 2" to encourage women a positive lifestyle and the desire for success while looking good. It’s very very easy to participate, and most importantly, 2 (two) winners will win a FREE TRIP TO JAPAN!

Simply send in your best photo which shows your true beauty and personality to their Facebook account here before December 12th, then ask your friends to vote. And make sure your friends DO vote because VOTERS CAN WIN A FREE TRIP TO JAPAN TOO! Hahah! Just awesome..:)


Good luck!

Little Things That Made Us Happy #8

I am happy today because I realized one thing. Or few things. That no matter how sad or down I feel, I always remember Allah. And instead of blaming Allah on why things aren't according to my plans, I evaluate my day and try to understand why Allah led me to another plot. We all feel sad occasionally. And things never ever ever go smooth. There's always that fall when you feel like caving in and cry. But learning is the best gift in life. And without failures, we don't learn. I love myself for that. We all should..:)

Cherry Head

Just received these hair coloring products from Schwarzkopf yesterday...I love the super cute packaging! Also got the set of hair treatment products to be used afterwards...:)

Photobucket Photobucket

Since it's a Sunday and S & I didn't have any plans to go out, I gave the "Melty Cherry" Freshlight Foam a try. Hair coloring in the form of a foam? Interesting! I was very nervous about this cuz I haven't dyed my hair for YEARS. Nevertheless, this was the easiest and most practical hair coloring product I have ever used or seen. You simply spread the foam evenly over your hair using only hands (and gloves) and no need to use any hairbrush whatsoever.

Aaaaand I LOVE the result! It's pretty difficult though to capture my new hair color and photos just won't do has this reddish reflection when it gets hit by the cool! :)

And currently Guardian is having an exciting #FreshLightGuardian hairstyling competition in which you can win Free Hairstyling Treatment with me *scoff scoff*, Free Exclusive Schwarzkopf Product Packages dan a holiday trip to Pulau Pari with 5 friends!
