放纵自己



不知不觉,就这样进入2017年的5月了, time really does fly!



我没想过我第一个2017年的blog post竟然迟了五个月,我之前写了很多草稿,没有一个是完整的。不懂是我懒惰还是真的时间过得太快,把我兴奋打出来的一切都变得很闷很平淡。这几年来一直都想改变生活,也一直尝试过不同的生活方式,直到现在依然还没定下来。 大概6个月前以为重建一下自己的blog,就也能顺便整理一下自己凌乱生活,当时候拿回自己的blog后其实都不知道会发生什么样的变化,只记得一直提醒自己这个blog拿得回是好彩,一定要对自己更好,多多安排一些 activities 给自己,然后update一下自己的blog让生活添加一点色彩。但很显然,这半年来我又再次地陷入工作的陷阱,没日没夜地在工作。

今天是劳动节,对平日的我而言只是一个我可以把工作带回家做的一天。工作确实是带回来了,但我还没碰,我也不想碰,我只想放纵自己让自己好好感受一下劳动节的意义。想说不如就趁现在总结一下关于这些日子发生过什么事和我是怎么熬过来,听起来很艰辛,但对于这些事情我个人觉得还蛮欣慰地,至少我熬过,也开始感觉得出来自己的想法比之前成熟了,所以怎样都好都要为自己和家人感到一点点地骄傲*不要脸*,



好,就从眉毛开始说起,距离上一次飘眉应该也过了半年多吧?我这里必须老实说,我自从第一次飘了眉后我就再也没回去补色了,因为我的眉毛被飘得 非。常。粗。其实除了粗以外,形状和颜色都很不适合我,而且左右不协调,我完全不知道到底是什么状况,因为飘眉师在我这地区还蛮出名地,而且也不便宜,但总结来说我还是非常地后悔。由于眉毛对我来说非常重要,所以有一段时间我关闭自己希望可以让时间修复我的眉毛,但是没用,我的眉毛还是像蜡笔小新一样好笑。

就在我回亚庇做facial的时候,帮我洗脸的这位漂亮姐姐因为职业病的关系,顶不顺我的那双倒“眉”,就开始怂恿我当她的免费“白老鼠”,让我尝试她前阵子刚从台湾学回来的“功夫”,来补救我的眉毛。为什么说是“功夫”呢,是因为她完全没有用任何机器,单纯就只是用她的手,和针扎了几下,就好了。然后隔几天非常神奇滴,我眉毛就开始有轻微脱皮,慢慢地我的眉毛就变细变淡变比较好看了,你们可以refer上面的自拍,是不是比之前那两条毛毛虫好很多了呢!!!

免责声明:其实,这位姐姐是我的亲戚,打从12岁开始我就让她洗我的脸,就这样洗了十几年,虽说是她刚学回来的功夫,但我知道她底子非常好,我对她非常有信心,所以别说当她的白老鼠了,做牛做马都愿意!😂*让我帮她打个免费广告,不然这样太对不起她了!!如果你们想洗脸/飘眉/甚至想救回自己被飘坏的眉毛,可以查看她们的 facebook: https://www.facebook.com/amorebeautykk/



其实弄眉毛那段时间,我也是需要准备搬家了,租了一间大概500多sqf的一房studio,目前为止都还挺满意的,毕竟有更多空间可以做自己喜欢做的事情,而且私人空间也多了非常多,不再需要担心说半夜想煮点东西吃都怕吵到室友。唉~曾经那段一直被室友投诉的日子,现在这位室友(男朋友)我一煮就是一起吃了!嘻嘻!



搬了家多了些空间,我就开始了一些我之前一直很想做的烘焙,虽说工作很忙不能说很常烤蛋糕,但是至少说当哪一天想做个蛋糕来吃的时候就不需要说去朋友家借烤箱或什么的,直接在家弄就可以了。

其实除了说能无节制地做自己喜欢做的事情外,我有一个事情要宣布......

童鞋们,我终于有狗狗了!!!


让我秀秀我家“女神”的亮相给你们过目过目:



是不是很可爱!!!!!! 我告诉你们,之前的它是一个有皮肤病,然后也是一个很瘦很瘦的狗狗。经过我千辛万苦的照料之下,它可爱的模样就慢慢出来了。😋

其实一直以来都很喜欢也很想养狗狗,但是因为我不确定说我什么时候会离开这里,而且我不知道我有没有能力和时间去照顾它们,所以一直都没有真正去想过想养狗狗之类的。但自从madok,就是我本身在亚庇养的一只西施,它上天堂后,我就一直很挂念它,甚至有时候会情不自禁想想下哭了出来,就从那时候开始有关注一下哪里有得领养狗狗之类的消息, 如果你们好奇我是在哪里领养到这么可爱的狗狗,那么我可以先告诉你,它不是领养回来的,它是我从宠物店里“救”回来的。

那么为什么明明说好要领养最后却跑去宠物店呢,其实是有一段小小的故事。就某一天我跟男朋友出去吃午饭,经过一间宠物店,就想说进去看看狗粮或狗狗的日常用品大概需要花多少钱。一开始我是没有什么注意什么,我只是知道这间宠物店有卖很多可爱的名种狗狗,但我的目的是要看狗粮,所以我也没去看有什么狗狗。长话短说,平时男朋友对这些琐碎的事情是完全不在乎的,但是不知道为什么就一直看着售狗区里面,连我叫他都没听见,这时候我才其实发现原来他在盯着这只可怜的🐶!这只🐶 在一个很窄很窄,非常窄的笼子里面,连转身都难,💩 没人抹不要紧,因为太窄了所以根本没有多余的空间给它避开它的💩,所以基本上它的脚全都是它的💩。就在这时候男朋友不知道发什么神经一直跟我提起那只🐶,说什么看得出它的耳朵很majestic, 他的脸很尖很帅,就一直在那里要我买掉它。但由于我那时候现金带不够,所以放了deposit先再慢慢考虑看看,一是敷衍,二是我真的还没准备好。

一个星期后,我们又到回去那间宠物店,狗狗还在,一样的状况,好像比之前更憔悴。这回连我也看不过眼了,要求宠物店里的人帮它冲个水洗个澡后,付钱就带她回家。就这样,狗狗取名为女神,我们的新家就多了一个新成员。💕





“放纵自己”这个标题其实蛮重的,但我今天真的想了非常多,这篇文章我从中午12点写到现在已经是2点早上了,写了删,删了再写,完全词穷。基本上如果我没想过要blog的话,现在我应该是完成我的工作了,但我今天就是想放纵自己,一直不想开始我的工作,开始讨厌工作一直做不完还要带回家做的这种working culture, 想到最后给自己得到了一个很简单的结论就是 -辞职就不用烦了;说真的,“辞职”两个字从我嘴里说出来的时候,较多的是解脱。平时在公司9个小时连续对着电脑都已经顶不顺了,做不完的工作还必须要带回家完成,那么所谓的休息是什么时候?*更新* 先说明下我的工作室跟着美国太平洋时间跑地,因为client都是在美国,所以换句话说我需要在这里的晚上工作。前面过得还好,后面就开始发现不对劲了,荷尔蒙严重失调,生理和皮肤是最明显的暗示。我问我自己干嘛那么拼,干脆辞了它就没有那么多东西好烦了。再来,之前一直说好的梦想一直都因为这份工作被延迟,不如给自己一段时间好好的休息,再往自己一直以来追求的梦想前进。

想想,其实这想法也不错,这种安排也没说对或错,后悔了就当学习,生活只要别想太多其实还蛮简单地,至少现在的我是这样认为,我真的很庆幸这半年来我所做的改变,学习到踏出了第一步,让自己看看所谓的最远是多远,才是生活学习的关键,对不对?

Eyebrow transformation!


Hi!

Been busy about works lately and today, this post finally turns up! It took me quite some time to complete this post because THIS THING takes time.

Okay so, BROW.

Brow for me is the crucial point out of all my facial feature, simply because on the whole how my face look depends on my brows. *If that make sense*

Despite of the fact that I've been drawn my eyebrows for over 7 years now, sometime it is still difficult for me to catch the skill and draw a perfect pair of brows, that's when I had to spend almost forever drawing my brows everyday, only brows! Oh god.

Some time ago everything came to a point where I really wanted to "do" something to my brows, but I’m too scared that I may not end up liking them as the fact of the result may be a successful one or be screwed! I held back on the thought to do anything on my brows until lately, I finally deal with it and get my brows embroidered!


-


Let me show you how was my original brows looked like before anything:
(I was born with natural brow hair but they just tend to be sparse and out of shape.)



.....I hope my eyes don't freak you out hahahaha!


-


Also a few pictures of the evolution of my brows throughout these years (2013-16):

2014 


2015

( *Recent pict* I've been using my dried mascara as brow gel lately lol! )
2016

Bet you could probably tell the evolutions of my brows lol. I wasn't lying about the skill, I changed my brows shape/style/look/whatever every each years, lol...


-


Anyway, long story short, 
Here goes to the process of me doing my eyebrow embroidery:

Prior to the embroidery, I had half an hour consultation with the embroidery artist (Evon) before everything started. First thing I told her was that I don't want (x100) the dreamy effect which a lot of girls had done out there, because I didn't want myself look like I've never learnt to remove my make up. lol. Instead, I would love just plain natural brows kind of look, and to make it simple for her to catch the image, I said I want the "hairy effect". LOL!

In a clearer point, Evon told me what I wanted to do actually called 6D eyebrow embroidery. Omg I thought 4D eyebrow embroidery just came out not long ago? Totally have no idea that it was already up to 6D now, hmm. To be a little more specific on it, she even showed me some of her masterpieces, and indeed they were what I was looking for. 

I was so dumb, "hairy effect", wut?

😂  😂  😂  😂  😂  😂



We spent another half an hour deciding which brow fit the best on my face. After picking the brows shape I am happy with, then numbing cream time!





Evon was so nice for actually letting me to take videos/photos while she's doing the stroke things on my brows, however I cringe so much on doing so, ahh! Everything in fact was fine throughout the entire session, but I tend to overthink the procedure and also the sound of the bladder drawing strokes on my brows guys, it was so irritating that I just had no extra time to think about what pictures and stuffs.

Btw, if you're wondering about the painfulness, I would rate it as 1.5/10. It's actually depends on how the numbing cream takes effect on your skin, personally, I think mine took a really good effect. :P



Oh I also got a tube of smoothing gel from Evon after she's done with my brows. She advices to apply it 5 times a day or so, as it could help to heal skin fast and to avoid any ugly scars left on the brows skin later.

-

Immediate result after the embroidery:

First day was long, and truth to be told, the end result came out with nothing that I expected, it was very much thicker and darker than I thought it would be.

Check it out,



And yes, I went out like this to dine with my bf. 

Now in any cases you're wondering if that's alright to go out immediately after the embroidery, basically, it is alright. But personally it wasn't a great idea to do so. I felt damn uncomfortable during the entire dining session, I can't help but keep looking around if there's people staring at my new brows lol! Well just purely how I felt tho. 


-


Fifth day: 

The brows skin was still pretty red on the fifth day, but the dead skin started to peel off by itself. 

*Important note* Do not peel it with your finger force because you may as well peel off the pigments by accidents and making it looks disastrous, with bald spots lol. 








-


Two weeks or so:

Finally, these were how my brows look like after the dried skin fully peeled off! No idea if it'll get thinner or lighter in colour anytime further, but it looked so much better compared to the past few weeks. *happy!*


Btw, not sure if you saw it, but I literally found the pigments of the strokes on my right brows tend to fade out more than the left one as I am writing this entry. LOL! Luckily this is not the final result yet, I still have one touch-up session left with Evon coming in December/January. So, we'll see again how it goes next round. Phew.



OVERALL:

Well, there're some facts of eyebrow embroidery I would like to share about before I end this post.

1. If you're about to participate in some important events in the near future and still wanted to look pretty with the eyebrow embroidery effects, do it at least two weeks in advance. Personally, a month or two would be better.

2. Smoothing gel is the key of fast healing!

3. Do not wet your brows after the embroidery at least 5-7days, or you'll wash off the pigments. 

4. I am no expert on this but speaking with my experience, instant perfect result (like what we saw on facebook / instagram / any ads from Internet) are mostly bs! 

5. Last but not least, eyebrow embroidery indeed saved me a lot of time on doing my daily make up, so does my bf's time. *giggle* 



p/s - I am not going to reveal where I did my brows embroidery. However If you would really like to know where I did my brows, email me. :) I'm more than happy to tell you.

Better me. Better Life.


Hi, 

So it has been quite a long while, how y'all doing my friends?

A lot of people have been wondering how am I doing ever since I got to KL. Honestly, I still can't determined for everything I've been done these years, I just seems to be standing on the same spot still. Looking back, I found myself had been trying almost everyday doing the repetitive same thing over the years, or just do anything that has no purpose at all to fill in the time, which is sad because if I were to be honest, I'm getting sick of living like that and that was the reason why I didn't show myself often on the internet.

Anyway......

I'm writing today because I realized how much I'm turning myself into an potential introvert, who keeps drowning out herself by the constant grind of work and come home to sleep everyday. Boring but true, I know I am not the only one doing so. So without a doubt, I've decided to rebuild my blog and start making my life a little awesome again.  

Finger crossing that I'll keep myself updating (blog, vlog, happy and etc...) at least once a week or two? Special thanks to my boyfriend who actually involves himself to plan some activities for me to blog about, we'll see, hope everything works out well!




loves,
Sherniies
