Kumi's introduction!

During our sharing session! :)

with Ms. Chi :)

What I learned during this launch? it wasn't just the usual this and that.. they actually encouraged us to be confident about ourselves. there were more than 20 bloggers during the launch and we were separated into 3 groups for our sharing. we each talked about what makes us feel good and what our beautiful change in life is. As kumi said, I choose to think of positivity every single day. With that alone, it will slowly change your life's perspective in a happy way.

I really admire and appreciate HBC for coming up with this event because this is actually the first time I've encountered such and who wouldn't want great services for free, right? Other than that you get to experience and try their other products. I'm not gonna lie, I love HBC as well because they sell affordable but good quality beauty products. <3

so what is your beautiful change? Hope to see you there! :) 

check them out on their ff. social media accounts! :)

ps. thanks again Kumi for inviting me and to the HBC team for being so welcoming to us bloggers. :) see you ladies on thursday!

My Stylash Salon Experience: Fishermall Branch

I've had a fair share of my eyelash extensions days way back in college. Well, I was desperate before to have long and thick lashes that's why I tried it. It really changed the way I look plus less time for applying make-up because you don't need to apply mascara and eyeliner anymore. it was good until it lasted but it was such a pain to maintain it. also, did I say it was expensive? for a college student like me before, I didn't prioritize spending 700php+ just to have my lashes done 2x a month! I think it has been almost 2 years since I last had my eyelash extensions. I saw this new eyelash salon and was so excited to try it! so here's my review from my trip to stylash manila yesterday. :)

I saw their ad through facebook and was curious to try it because it was 50% off. Fortunately, they were so nice to offer me a trial that's why I didn't have second thoughts and immediately had my schedule for the weekend. Also, I needed to have my eyebrows threaded already. (good thing they have brow threading and other waxing services too.)

I was so surprised to see how pretty the salon was!!! <3 It was so me, I didn't want to leave! lol but seriously the salon had great furniture and adorable design. who wouldn't fall in love with it, right? (I wanted to take the frames home!!)


I waited for awhile because the salon was full and some consultants were on lunch break. After a few minutes of waiting, they started doing my eyelash extensions. I knew the drill so I wasn't nervous nor scared in trying it again. What I love about the procedure is that they put some q-10 collagen treatment (eye mask ) first then tape it. In the usual eyelash salons, they only put some masking tape around your eyes, which for me is the most annoying thing during the process. (they are the only eyelash salon in the Philippines that have the Q-10 collagen treatment!)

 that's ate agnes! :)

before photo! my short and thin lashes plus ugly eyebrows HAHAHA (SHAME!)

It took me almost an hour to have it done. FYI, the time process depends on the type/style of eyelash extensions you'll be getting. Here I got the natural one. it has 160 lashes (80 lashes per eye). To be honest, it will be painful after because you have to close your eyes during the whole procedure plus if you're not sleepy, you'll be impatient while waiting :)) I recommend you have yours done and sleep for an hour so you won't think too much.

As per the pain? Not that much. but I guess it depends on your eye shape? I have small eyes so I think they had to put extra effort in filling in the lashes. It would hurt a little but it's just like a pinch on your lashes but it is tolerable.

To sum it all up, after visiting various eyelash salons, this by far is my favorite. The lashes are so light!!! It's as if I didn't have additional 160 lashes on my eyes AT ALL. swear! (btw, they use MINK lashes :) ) I had mink lashes before in another eyelash salon but it made my eyes itchy plus the glue was so sticky! -_- I already took a bath and my eyes are just fine. if this will be your first time, then you'll just have some adjustments but you'll be fine when you get used to it. I know some friends who even wear goggles while taking a bath HAHAHA!

Anyway, I  also love the staff because they are friendly and the salon's ambiance is great! I just wish they had separate cubicles though as to eliminate the noise because it disturbs those who are having their beauty rest. ;)

I highly recommend stylash salon for all those who are curious in having their eyelash extensions done. Plus they have brows, waxing, manicure and pedicure services too. I had my eyebrow threading after and it was hassle free for me because I didn't have to visit 2 different salons. YEY!

So, Hurry and Visit their Fishermall branch because they are currently having 50% off on the following styles: Glamorous, Superstar and Diva. only until may 31! :)

anyway, to appreciate it more, Here are some photos I took during my trip at Stylash salon! :)

Love the interiors! :)

choose your service! :)

they also sell doll eye lenses! if I remember correctly it's 399 per pair or 599 for 2 pairs.

my favorite :D

take your pick!
