Is it Christmas Yet

This week in the news, shops are putting up decorations and selling Christmas items and food.  A bit early for Australian standard but it's not new to me.  In the Philippines, Christmas starts in the -ber months.

I did notice Christmas stuff at the shops yesterday and today.  This is from Costco.

This reminds me that I have to put up a tree early November so we don't miss out on Santa when we come back. :)

Retail Therapy

I reckon, it has been a while since I've been to the shops to buy myself something so while I was at Costco (went to re-fuel), I wandered in.

Of course, I didn't wander far really.  Just stayed in the middle area where all the clothings are.  I bought Dickies shirts that are really good price.  Fifteen bucks for adults and 10 bucks for kids.

Dame Edna-ish

Okay, so I need new glasses.  I mean, the old pair was about 3 years old.  They were giving me headache in the afternoon, is what I thought of course.  Never mind the fact that the heat reflection on the glass window at work in the afternoon despite the aircon is also a bit off-putting.  It's just me, by the way.

So I got new glasses.  Not my usual type but I thought, I'm due for a bit of Dame Edna-ish.

Skirts for Narrow Hips

Is that even correct?  Anyway, I don't really know the term but that is what I am.  I have narrow hips.  I'm still wondering how was I able to give birth to 6.8lbs baby.  :)

Anyway, if you are like me and wants to wear skirt that will flatter your shape, these are the styles that were recommended by google.  Haha.  See, I take advice from google now.

They don't look bad at all.

Facial Hair Removal

It seems that I have been obsessing hair removal recently.  No, I didn't just get hair on my body recently.  I'm not a teenager anymore.  I have been using trusted methods and I have been okay with them.  My curiousity arises due to many methods are there in the market and I though, I am still very naive when it comes to it.

I have been thinking of using wax strips and actually bought a packet today.  I got home, did some reading and found that waxing might cause bumps later on.  That gave me a pause with my plan.  I went back to my trusted method then, tweezing.  Only took 5 minutes, viola!

These are it

the shoes that I am looking for, that's what I am talking about.  I'm crossing my fingers.  I just bought them today for a really bargain price so I have not tried to walk in them for a long distance.  But they seem to be promising.  Soft soles.  Soft upper lining.  And they fit perfectly.  I have to wear them to work this week to test their reliability of being travel shoes.  

I quickly duck down to the shops today to buy kitty crystal litter and of course, I couldn't resist dropping by the shoes shop.

Nautical? Summer?

Hmmm.. not that I really like stripes but I do like blue.  When I bought this, there were only one left at the shop.  A few weeks later when I visited the shop again, the shopkeeper said... she wished that she kept one for her self.  

it reminds me of sunshine, summer and the beach.  Nautical design you say?  Maybe.  I just love it.


so, i can say that i have not gone through waxing in any hairy part of my body.  i have a very low pain threshold - though i have given birth - that i am not sure that it is worth it.

i can put it in my bucket list but not accomplished any time soon, mind you.

anyway, i was curious about brazilian wax.  i mean, really curious.  so i did some reading.

apparently, there's just no privacy when going through brazilian wax.  it is comparable to going to your OB.  hmmm, i suppose it's a small or big price for vanity and hygience.  

what to expect?  the technicians, if you may call them that, will dip a wooden stick to the melted wax and lather the area.  when it is dry, i suppose, they peel off the wax by strip.  imagine ripping the bandage off.  the wooden stick must only be dipped once and then discarded.

the hair must at least be a half an inch long or as long as grain of rice - didn't say it was long grain or jasmine.  :)

oh, ask for a hard wax, it was said to be less painful.  have the waxing done regularly - for some 3-4 weeks, some 6 weeks. it all depends on the texture of your hair. 

and ask for the name of your technician.  you wouldn't want to bare yourself to different person everytime, do you?
