A Lush Life...

My very first experience with Lush was probably about two years ago when I tried their Ocean Salt Cleanser at a friend's place, and I wasn't too impressed (but it was summer and at the time my face was sunburned). Since then, thanks mostly to the blogging Lush Queen wifey M, my curiosity has peaked sinceI would love for my beauty products to be not only good for me but also good for the earth. So I finally visited the closest Lush store and made some purchases from studying the website and also M's recommendations!

Here's a three minute video, haha...

Quick Update on Ze Hair and Video (Updated)

I had every intention of dying my hair "Natural Black" much that I bought the dye. And then what happened? Well, I snapped a few photos of my hair...sat in my car, looked at the photos, looked in the mirror...thought about how much time and effort it took to get my natural black hair to a noticeable brown...and truthfully the natural black dye looked darker in person than on the web...ahaha so I ran back into the store and exchanged for "Royalbrown".

I also got my hair cut this past weekend. I asked the stylist to lop off two inches and give me medium-long layers (trying to cut off as much of the old highlights as I could!). My hair feels so much better now and I feel much more presentable!

I have a lot to I did video of everything but had to cut it into 4 parts. I still want to do proper posts so here's just the first part of the video (don't worry, I cut them so the sections will make sense on their own). I'll try to post each night for the next three nights.

Hair Color Woes

It's that time again...I can't decide what color to dye my hair. I know I don't want this current color anymore. Now that the seasons are warmer, my skin tone gets deeper and it just doesn't go well with the current auburn dark brown (cranberrychocolat) hair color. So...should I keep a similar color or go darker?

I'm leaning towards darker but hesitating since there's a good chance in a few months I'll want my hair to be lighter, haha (lighter being a medium brown shade). I'm so easily influenced...I'll see a picture of a gorgeous model in a Japanese mag and want her hair color! But then again, I want a color that'll flatter my skin tone.

Here's what I used for my current hair color (though my hair's not as red, it's actually dark brown on top and gradually fades to a golden reddish brown thanks to my old highlights...I can't wait until I can cut them all off!).

Quest Crew at World of Dance Tour

I just wanted to share my video of Quest Crew performing live last night at World of Dance in Pomona! I went with some friends and some of my other friends helped with the show, so I got backstage access. Still, there were a lot of people there so I kind of made my way to the corner closest to the front of the stage (from the backstage section) to take this video. Most of the time I was standing on tippy toes with my arms up to get the best view I could. I was actually standing behind one of the Ringmasters guys (poor guy, my camera was hovering all around his head) and a Beat Freaks girl (I think).

My friends and I were lallygagging around so we missed the Beat Freaks performance (plus that was way before we went backstage so I would have been farrrrrrrr back in the audience).

I wish I could say I got to meet Quest Crew again but I didn't. We got there a bit late and then there was a delay so Quest Crew performed a little after midnight. My friends were ready to go immediately after. I'm glad I got to go and see them perform and share this video with you all though! =)

P.S. Ringmasters also performed but I didn't get any video. Seven-year-old bboy Jalen also performed. I might post a video later this week if anyone wants to see it.

P.P.S. My arms were sore from working out the day before and then from having to hold the camera up, haha. Sometimes I wish I was taller!

Random Update

My blog just turned one year old! Yup, its birthday was the end of March. I didn't blog too much for the first half, so I'm not in the mood to celebrate. I'll make it up by celebrating its UNbirthday sometime later this year.

Anyone who doesn't know yet about Yasumi's new blog for her beautiful handmade jewelry should definitely go visit! NOW!! She is selling gorgeous pieces at her shop called Worship At The House Of Blues. If you purchase something, let her know that I pimped her!

I made a video of random things I've gotten recently...but I forgot to take pictures so if you're curious, you'll just have to watch.

I hope you're all having a great week!
