Going Blonde for a Hair Color

I convinced myself to go something bold for hair color and again DIY'ing my hair color is the practical and money-saving move I always go for. 

For today's post, I will be featuring this brand of hair color that I got from Watsons, LifeStrong Hairfix hair coloring shampoo in the shade of Platinum Blond for $1.40/Php69 per pack. It says in the packaging that it is enriched with olive oil extract. LifeStrong Hairfix Platinum Blond Hair Coloring Shampoo claims to give a vibrant color to your hair. 

I was intrigued by the easy 4-steps process. The package includes; hair coloring shampoo and two (2) disposal gloves. 

Direction for use:

  1. Unpack and cut the Hair Coloring Shampoo Sachet in the corner. Wear the gloves provided and squeeze contents into palm and mix.
  2. Apply the mixture evenly on your slightly wet hair. Then massage the hair from the roots to tip until it lathers. Avoid contact with eyes.
  3. Keep it on your hair for 20-25 minutes.
  4. Add a small amount of water into hair until it lathers. Rinse it with water.

Check out the video I made using LifeStrong Hairfix hair coloring shampoo below: 

My verdict using the product: 
In the true sense of reality versus expectations, this is a good example of this. I was expecting a bigger and bold change when I applied the hair colorant knowing that my hair with a slightly dark brown color. That is why I believe that the color shade was a fail.  


After a week of applying the hair color, it starting to show-off a more vibrant shade and I am beginning to like it.  


About the application of the product, I find it so easy, no-mess and it did not leave any color stains to my scalp and skin which was a plus factor. The scent was not that strong too unlike other hair colorants I've used which have a strong ammonia scent. 

Although it was a fail expected color I am beginning to like it. 

What do you think about my DIY hair color?

The day is passing by so fast, Valentines Day just went by so quickly and in just a few months, Mother's Day is almost here! 

With all the flowers, chocolates and dinner treat for our family and special someone, we are now again, focused with one of the best people in our lives, our Mother! The word Mother comes in many different words, in many different languages and dialects. 
Mom, Mum, Mommy, Ma, Nanay, Ina, Inay, and a lot more to mention. 
"Mother's Day is a celebration honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. It is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world, most commonly in March or May."

This person also comes in many different personas, a mother does not only apply to that biological person who bears you throughout the pregnancy but also to the psychological aspect of being a mother. A person you can rely on and be your confidant. The mother figures no matter what gender it possesses. 

One way to show our gratitude and love to our dearest Moms is by sending or even personally giving them some gifts. As a Mom myself, simple gestures such as flowers can mean a lot to me, those vibrant and colorful bunch of flowers can make a big difference in this celebration. Because flowers are worldwide available and with the technology nowadays, you can order or even locate the nearest flower delivery service in your locality. There are a lot of mobile applications or you can search the internet where you can key in, eg. "best NYC florist" and everything is there, and also payments can be easily transacted too! 

There is no way or any excuse for you not to remember your Mom this coming Mother's Day, show them how you appreciate and remember them by sending them flowers.

What is an Ideal and Practical Gift for Women?

***This is a sponsored post, this article is written by me, opinions and views are 100% mine.

February is love month out of the months of the whole year this is the month that we mostly celebrate love for family, friends, and our dearest ones. How did you celebrate Valentine's Day? Was this Valentine's day extra special? 

Across different platforms of social media Valentine's day was celebrated from the simplest to an extravagant way of celebrating. Flowers in bouquet arrangements, chocolates, clothes, and jewelry were posted online. 

Here is one photo of the grandest and biggest bouquet of roses received as a hearts day gift. Grand right? 

Some celebrated hearts day by pampering themselves and treating themself to a spa or a relaxing getaway to shopping. Among the ladies who are reading this, which do you prefer for a gift to someone or yourself? 

Being practical, I am into self-care, giving myself a treat or something special for myself. As a Mom, the most typical things I can consider as a treat is buying some pieces of clothes or even a new set of undergarments or lingerie. Yes, you heard it right undergarments!
 Feeling good and looking good can make a woman start their day right. Confidence and self-esteem can make a woman powerful in her own right. 
No matter what body shape a woman has nothing compares to a new set of undergarments that she can wear underneath her everyday clothing.

Personally, going to the stores to find pieces of a plus-size body shaper can be a little difficult moreover when you are shopping in an Asian store. 

The best way is to go online, there are a lot of trusted stores on the internet which cater to different sizes and most especially different styles. When I checked this site, Loverbeauty, I was fascinated with the designs and styles. I spent hours scrolling down their pages and everything looks promising and beautiful. 

From hiphugger bodysuit shapewear to boyleg full body shaper to a more defined and specific shaper panty, I found their pieces look stylishly comfortable, feminine and durable. I would love to own some pieces from their collection. The above photos are my pick! 

I have not bought anything from their store but I am considering. 

Mother's day is just around the corner and you might want to treat your wife or your mother with some new set of undergarments?
