Eyelash extension 植眼睫毛

我的毛髮天生很幼和淺色. 好處是我無脫毛的煩惱, 但當然我的睫毛也很幼很淺色.

早幾年已開始接觸植眼睫毛. $250中型美容院試過還好但不夠自然, $1,000KP 試過很不錯但貴, 而且好像已不做睫毛. 朋友介紹上環僂儸版也試過(略帶口音的呀姨做)毛質超硬和重而且會跟真的睫毛一齊掉 …
重點我覺得是要毛質好, 粗幼長度彎度選擇多, 膠水好, 效果自然~

一直想試很有名的Novalash, 問過要求跟我一樣高的朋友. 她由Novalash 轉去這家叫Beaute Nail的店(都在威靈頓街The Loop)
這佔三層的店由前港姐王殷廷創辦. 一層做指甲和睫毛, 另一層做facial/massage, 還有一層醫學美容.

昨天去了試做…

我覺得還不錯. 毛質好, 自然.
早上趕時間很方便, 基本上可以不化眼妝 🙂

My hair is very thin and relatively light in colour (comparing to most Chinese). Good thing is that I don’t need any waxing :p but that also means my eyelashes aren’t very noticeable.

Eyelash extension has been in the market for awhile and I had had it done in various places – mid sized beauty centre which costed $250 (didn’t look natural enough), large cosmetics brand KP $1,000 (great but expensive, also I don’t think they do eyelashes anymore), some random upstairs places in Sheung Wan run by some aunties from the mainland (lashes are rough and heavy, and they got dropped off with your real lashes).

I guess the key things to me are: the artificial lashes must be in good quality (soft and comfy enough); have a variety of choices in terms of length, colour and curl; use good glue (so that your own lashes don’t fall along with the fake ones!); and it should suit the shape of your eyes hence look natural!

My friend recommended me this place called Beaute Nail which is opened by former Miss Hk/celebrity Edith Wong, as opposed to the famous Novalash where she used to go. (Both of them are located at The Loop on Wellington St) This place is pretty big! They occupied 3 floors at The Loop, one for nail/eyelash, another one for facial/massage, and one is a laser medical clinic.

Went for a trial yesterday and it was pretty good! Good lashes and looking natural. Saved me lots of time in the mornings of having to put on eye makeup!

Kitty Chen Couture – evening gown

I’ve been thinking whether or not to post wedding dresses up coz i wanted to surprise people when they see me at my wedding… But I realised the quality of the photos is in no way comparable to the real dress anyway hehe…So! Here is my dress….

I think it’s sooooo beautiful. Ignore the black clips at my back… They are just some large clips to keep my dress fitted.

For those who are interested, the dress is called ‘Ginger’ (i dont like this name, doesn’t match the dress AT ALL). Kitty Chen’s latest collection. i got it from Mariee bridal.

I didn’t like the service of the shop, not a very enjoyable experience. I can write a full post about it but ill give them a break (for now!)
I’ll do a full vendor review later with all my wedding vendors.

為保持神祕感原本猶豫好不好把婚禮的裙放上來… 但我發現iPhone相跟真身實在差太遠!
這是我其中一件婚禮晚裝~我覺得她很美… 一穿上就知道是她了!
請怱略黑色的部分, 只是把裙固定的大夾.
裙名字叫ginger… 很怪… 格調完全不相襯~ 她是Kitty Chen Couture 最新系列.我在安蘭街的Mariee Bridal 找到她. 服務非常一般. 不是為了裙我應該永遠不會回去(之後vendor review 會再詳細講)

Giuseppe Zanotti – my bridal shoes

Bridal shoes are one of the most important item on the bridal list (what isnt?!) when i wasn’t looking, pretty shoes are everywhere. when i started looking, they were in nowhere.
I had to make sure my bridal shoes are super comfortable, preferably in platform (since ill be wearing them all day long), tall but not too tall (no more than 4-inches so that i keep good visual with my fiance!), in blush colour (easy colour to match with and my all-time fave!) and sparky (no silver!)
Looked through all the brands like Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Sergio Rossi, Christian Louboutin, Miu Miu… And been to Lane Crawford and Harvey Nics for a dozen times…. NOTHING caught my eyes.
Until I saw them…

I had never shopped in Giuseppe Zanotti, thought their shoes are too high profile. Lady gaga is not my cup of tea. And they are expensive!
But I surrendered when they told me these were the last pair… And they are in my size!!! Not to mention they fulfilled all my requirements.

Honestly, spending 5 digits on a pair of shoes is a bit insane to me… Oh well, there they are!

作為準新娘, 婚鞋是我非常著緊的一環(其實其他我也超緊張的)! 以為我要求的鞋應不算難找… 但我.錯.了. 要看的都看過了… Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Sergio Rossi, Christian Louboutin… 連卡佛Harvey Nics 都行了不知多少次, 全部失.望.而.回!
我要的鞋重點要舒服! (要穿上整天嘛)
不能高過四吋! (要高但也要保持與新郎視覺上的最佳距離)
膚色粉紅!
暗閃, 不要老套銀閃!
原本沒打算行Giuseppe Zanotti, 嫌這牌一般太誇張. Lady gaga的路線不是我的茶… 但無心插柳竟然給我找到! 最後一對還是我的size! 雖然要5位數是有點不值… 為盡快了結這事, 我還是投降了.

Torimen, Soho

My dear skinny friends Joey and Mishell have been telling me how amazing Torimen was, how much food they ate last time (hmm two size 6 girls…) and that it’s a must must must-go! I was like… Okay… let’s see how good it is! (as i’m always picky and difficult to please~)
And IT WAS REALLY GOOD!

ImageHmm yeh it’s just us 4 girls… we ordered a whole lot and the entire chef table was full of our food. People must be freaked out with how much we ordered! A lot of food i just forgot to take photos (or couldnt be bothered) because i was too busy eating!cherrytomato
I don’t normally eat cherry tomatoes but this is soooo delicious. Tomatoes were really fresh and juicy, makes perfect combo with bacon and melted cheese…
icecream
This is more of an ordinary dessert according to the chef… Taro ice-cream. It’s great! not too sweet especially after such a full meal.

ImageI thought my stomach couldn’t bare but this Apple Crunch actually relieved it a bit… semi-sweetened apple pieces with crepes. Not heavy at all.
$$$ wise… We spent about $500/head
