Dear Hair: An Open Letter To My Hair

 


DSC_0033

 

Dear Hair,

I've been wanting to tell you what's in my heart for the past few years but I don't have the courage for fear that I would say something that will hurt you and I will just regret it. But I feel that this is the right time and I need to do this.

See I always thought we've got something great going on. We've had each other since I was born but I wasn't really conscious of how you look until I was in high school. I mean, you didn't look bad at all. We don't look bad together, I know that. I just have some issues with you that's all and please allow me to voice it out.

My friends would laugh when I'd tell that I'm having a bad day with you. They don't seem to believe that there are days when I don't get you. You get on my nerves. Sometimes I try everything on how to manage you but still. There are times when I feel that my best isn't enough for you. The struggle is real and they just don't see it. They see you and I from the surface when we're already kissy face. When you look prim and proper after an hour or so of trying to make it right with you.

Please don't get me wrong. We've had amazing, beautiful, and happy days. And I'm grateful for you cuz I know that there are others who have worst struggles with their hair. But I know that you can do more but a lot of times, you just want to be mediocre and slack off. When I'm not doing a photo shoot or I'm not going out or going to an event, I am okay with you being just the way you are. But it's when I'm doing a photo shoot that you're giving me the hardest time. When I need you to have more volume, you're in your limpiest and frizziest moment and I need a little bit of wind during our photo shoot so you can look better in photos. When I am okay with you being limp while lounging around the house or working from home, that's when you look like you the most volume. Do you understand where I'm coming from?

And no, I am not parting ways with you. I mean, how can we? Think about it. You're something I can't live without. I'm stuck with you for life. But that's why I'm trying to make this work. I love you, hair. I really do. To prove that, I am willing to do everything to find a solution for your issues. In case you haven't realized, I've been using on you L'Oreal's Smooth Intense Polishing Shampoo from their Advanced Hair Care line. It's supposed to soften and tame rough textures and I have noticed a difference of how you're behaving these days. I have also been using their conditioner which when used with the serum or creme, it's supposed to control your frizz for up to 72 hours. Amazing isn't it? I think you're responding well and when you look beautiful, I am happy because you make me feel pretty!

I knew we can make this work…and we can live happily ever after…

 

Yours Truly,

Me

The Rakani story began in March 2012 when founder Chirayu Patel gave his girlfriend a watch for her birthday. She jokingly asked if the watch was meant to keep her from always being late. Although it wasn't, it made him realize that watch designs today have no particular meaning behind them. This idea inspired the premise behind Rakani, which is to create meaningful designs that have significance beyond the product itself.

Sunglasses Shop is one of the online leading retailers of name brand sunglasses as well as prescription glasses. They are also a certified Ray-Ban dealer.

Hyatt Market Street Lifestyle Experience

 

I've always loved the area of The Woodlands, TX but I don't always frequent it because it's an hour away drive from where I live and it's about 28 miles from Houston itself I believe. I have only been to The Woodlands about three times since we've moved to Houston from Miami a few years ago and the only couple of places that I've got to visit were The Woodlands Mall and The Market Street. I remember falling in love with The Market Street the first time I saw it. It was around the holidays as well when I first got to visit it so it was festive. Sadly, that first visit was quick and short and I never really got to explore the town square and the shops.

When an invitation came for a holiday blogger preview event at The Market Street last weekend and an opportunity to stay at the Hyatt Market Street was offered, I was thrilled! See, the first time I went to The Market Street, I didn't even notice there was a hotel! And it was right by the Starbucks where we went in to get some coffee. The Hyatt Market Street is a 70-room boutique hotel that basically anchors the 75+ stores and restaurants  at The Market Street.

Hyatt Market Street - The Woodlands, TX
I got there around 8 PM on a Friday. Typically, the place should be packed but because it was cold that night, I believe a lot of people just decided to chill at home. After checking in, I went outside just to check out some of the stores. Kendra Scott, which is one of the stores that we came to have a preview at the following day, was right in front of the hotel. There's also J.Crew, Elaine Turner, Trina Turk, Tommy Bahamas, and more. There's also a movie theatre within the town square! It's probably about a few hundred feet from the hotel.

This is the view of the front desk and lobby from the second floor. I love the bamboo-like design on the circular wall, this chandelier that kinda looks like water droplets, and the circular stairs.

DSC03454

On the second floor is where the Market Street Kitchen Bar and another restaurant which I believe is open only during the day. If you're following me on Instagram, you've probably seen a couple of posts from the Market Street Kitchen and Bar the following day after our blogger preview. You can see that post here and here. They had a live band playing when I came to check the place out. I never really got to try any of their dinner menu though because I wasn't hungry at all when I got there. I basically just had Starbucks coffee and a few celery sticks as snacks. The food that we had though the following day was delicious! It's a bummer I forgot what it's called. Hopefully, I get to go back soon so I can try their food.

DSC03464

From the second floor, you can go outside the patio where the infinity pool is at and a place just to chill. They had a little bonfire going on to keep the place warm for those who would like to hang outside, even on cold nights. I'd say that the hotel is great for couples, bachelors and bachelorettes who would like an accommodation at The Woodlands that are just few steps away from shops and dining. If you are in Houston and you're planning for a staycation with your friends and you guys like dining and chill evenings, the Hyatt Market Street is a wonderful place to stay in.

DSC03465

Now the room is another amazing story. I stayed in a King Suite room I believe. It has a living area and a desk, as well as a mini bar that's actually right on the wall. Normally, I don't like dark interiors in a room but how they put this together is just great! The black, white, and purple color combination was right on point. And even though it seems that there's a lot of going on in the picture – prints everywhere and what not, it's actually pretty cozy and well put together in person. I love the curtains that kinda separate the living and the bed area. I think those are what made this room a bit whimsical!

I just had to snap a photo of the bathroom. Don't you love hotel bathrooms? Because they are usually bigger than our normal household bathrooms, ha!

DSC03450

Overall, I really had a nice, relaxing evening during my stay there. I can get used to the Hyatt Market Street lifestyle, I'll take it anytime! During the holidays, if you're planning on shopping at the Market Street, you probably would want to consider just staying overnight at the Hyatt before heading back to Houston. After all, shopping, though a retail therapy, can still be exhausting.

Oh, before I forget to mention, I asked for a late check-out since we had that blogger preview and I didn't know when exactly it will be over. I asked for a noon check-out but the front desk person (I believe her name was Roxy) offered instead a 1-PM check out. I liked that! I love it when the employees go the extra mile for guests. It actually helped me a lot not to be so much in a rush after the event which was over by 11.

Thank you Hyatt Market Street for a wonderful experience!

Today's outfit is a mixture of trends galore, not to mention layering to the max! I don't think I have ever done as much layering last year as I'm doing this year. For some reason, straight trench coats didn't use to appeal to me as much before as they do now. I believe to many women too because it tends to take away from your figure. One trick to solve the issue though is to put a belt to cinch your waist. Other than that, there are several ways to style a straight coat. One of them as shown here. Although I've seen some style coats like this with a pair of boyfriend jeans, I think it's actually best to wear with a pair of skinnies or at least boot cut jeans just because they do give you shape. Besides the fact that the whole look is just more sleek.

Have you tried layering with button down and sweater yet? It's really one of the best ways to layer and my favorite one. It's boyish style but still chic and it's great for a work style. How do you like the mixing of patterns here? Did you notice my H&M pants have patterns? The winter pastel green is also very much appealing to me these days. I'm actually about to get me a pink sweater, also from H&M, similar to this one.

Oh, and who doesn't love Kendra Scott?! I got a chance to check out their store at the Woodlands last weekend, together with some other bloggers and they were so generous to gift each blogger with this signature necklace they have! It's actually pearly white but it's opaque so the color of my mint sweater goes through it, making it look like ombre mint. Isn't it wonderful? You ladies ought to have at least some Kendra Scott pieces! Make it a gift for yourself this Christmas. *Wink*

My Microdermabrasion Experience at Adara Medical Spa


Last week, I went for my very first microdermabrasion at Adara Medical Spa. It's a medical spa located here in Houston, TX. I really love the look and feel of the place. It's very sleek and contemporary – unique from other medical spas. It's almost as if you've walked into a space ship when you walk in the place. All the interior is white and the decor is very minimal.

Anyway, I originally came for chemical peel but upon consultation with Randee, the nurse staff, she decided that what's best for me is the microdermabrasion since it has no down time. With the chemical peel, I will have a few days down time with my face chapping and all. Since it's the holidays and I have photoshoots that need to be done, I agreed that chemical peel isn't the right solution for me at this time.

My skin, thankfully, isn't acne prone. I've never had acne problems in my youth. However, recently I've noticed some slight discoloration. It's hardly noticeable, especially with make-up but I just feel the need to address it. That's why I came to Adara.

If you're not familiar with microdermabrasion, basically, it's a professional facial exfoliation which is achieved with a mechanical device called Diamond Tome®. This mechanical device which is operated by Adara's professional aesthetician, is rubbed against your face and it gently suctions the topmost layer of the skin to remove the dead skin cells. Once accomplished, you can see improvement in the overall condition of your skin, reduced fine lines and wrinkles as well as irregular skin tone. They do recommend a series of treatments in order to get the most out of it and I believe it is $80 per session.

The first step they did was basically clean my face to prepare it for the procedure. When it was done, Izzy started the microdermabrasion with the Diamond Tome®. The process was really quick! It probably only took about 10-15 minutes from cleansing to the actual suction. Once the suction was done, the pores are open so she infused it with some treatments: SkinCeuticals-Phloretin CF Serum which is a (Anti-Oxidant/ Anti-Aging Serum) These are both vital to the skin in order to see topical improvement; SkinCeuticals-B5 Gel (which has an ingredient called Hyaluronic Acid that hydrates, also its enriched with Vitamin B5) to hydrate the skin giving it that supple look, and Elta MD SPF 40, which is a cosmetically elegant sunscreen that not only protects all the products from the sun that they just applied it also hydrates the skin. The procedure was painless and I really did notice a difference in my skin. I was starting to have a line in between my eyes, I guess from squinting while driving or just being in front of the computer a lot – after the treatment, I don't see it anymore! My skin also looks more fresh!

Here's the wonderful staff of Adara Medical Spa: Randee, Izzy, and Chelsey. I must mention that Adara Medical Spa is affiliated with a dermatology clinic which is not very common amongst medical spas.

My Dodge Charger Style

Houston is the 4th largest city in the United States and we have at least 5 main highways and two toll ways – some highways have about 5 lanes, if I'm not mistaken, and our tollway has 4.

And when I think of a car that fits Houston's culture and lifestyle, I think of Dodge Charger! Why, you ask? I'dd say it's because of its macho, sleek, and still chic design! It fits a masculine lifestyle but it can also be feminine enough that allows a woman like me to drive it and put an edgy vibe out there. We Houstonians like some power!

So imagine me stepping out of a Dodge Charger in Downtown Houston for a night out with friends. First you see the over-the-knee boots, then you see my full outfit…a vintage sweater and a mini tweed skirt topped off with a faux fur vest and popped off with a yellow handbag. Yeahhh…you see a powerful, handsome car and out comes a little Asian woman in a city chic outfit. I'm sure you'd think, "that Dodge Charger car is so cool!" Yup, I knew it!

Well, don't be surprised if you see me in that outfit one of these days and driving a Dodge Charger at the same time. *Wink*

Hello North Pole! Ha! Yes, we Houstonians tend to over react with the cold. I remember last year when they said we're going to have a freezing temperature with some chance of ice – the schools were cancelled and the city was shut down! I kid you not. Did we actually get ice? Hmmm. We did, on the plants. It's quite funny.

Anyway, so here's a fun and playful outfit. I like dressing up but honestly, I also love wearing casual and comfortable outfits like this. Especially when it's cold! I mean who wants to feel sexy when it's 30 degrees outside? I don't know about you but all I'd care about is to get myself warm the best I could. This whole outfit is a mix of two ends – budget and luxury. Deb Shops on the budget fashion side while the beanie and the scarf were from Lexington Company which is a luxury fashion and home goods brand. I really love these winter accessories from them – they are not the flimsy type. They are thick and cozy, will definitely serve its purpose of keeping you warm.

It's totally okay to mix budget and luxury fashion. I'm sure many of us ladies are already doing that. Speaking of which, have you guys already heard of this iPhone app called Shopular? This app is legitimately off the chain! It's the perfect companion while doing your holiday shopping. Basically, it's an app that tells you which of your favorite stores has promotions going on and it gives you or shows you any coupons if there are any.

So for example, since we're talking about Deb Shops here – if you happen to pass by a physical Deb Store, Shopular will alert you what Deb has going on currently. Deb Shops already have the most affordable prices on their junior and plus size apparel, shoes, and accessories. So imagine getting the scoop on any on-going promotions plus scoring some coupons if they have any!

Shopular App

The app picks up the stores nearby so it really gives you all the deals that are happening – not only in your favorite stores but also the other stores nearby. For example, I was driving by the Town Center near my house the other day. I wasn't even really shopping. All of a sudden, I get a notification from my Shopular app that there are certain deals/promotions going on. I mean, who doesn't want that? With all the heavy expenses involved during the holidays, you want every bang you can get for your buck so you might want to download Shopular so you don't miss out on any…like an extra cup of Starbucks maybe? Perhaps getting alerted of some giveaways for a $500 shopping spree is something that you'd like or just an extra 20% OFF at Macy's. You're welcome, says Shopular! You can download the app from the App store…and best of all, it's FREE!!!

Oh by the way, since sharing is caring…the app has features that allow you to share the deals to your friends and social networks. How neat is that? You can thank me later. *Wink*

Here's a weather report from Houston…it's cold! It's been freezing cold for about a week now. I didn't expect that we're going to have freezing weather as early as mid-November. I can't imagine those of you folks who are in snowing areas. How do you even manage?

Anyway, so today, I want to introduce you to the newly-relaunched women's brand Metaphor Collection which are sold exclusively at Sears. Are you guys familiar with the brand? The prices are very affordable and I think that the styles are fit for the working, the modern, and the stylish woman. It's also for those of you who love the classic styles, prints, and cuts. The styles aren't so seasonal but they're something that you can wear all year round…except of course for the winter items.

In this outfit, the items that were from Metaphor were the blouse with floral graphic print as well as the skirt. As you can see, the skirt still has a modest length which is fit for the workplace environment but at the same time, you can wear it for a night out. The floral top is also something that you can wear underneath a jacket or blazer. For a day look, you can pair it with your favorite denims. I really like that the pieces are sleek and versatile – you can easily transform them from work to play to night look and incorporate them with what you already have in your closet. If you're not familiar with the brand, I suggest checking them out. Other than clothing, they also offer shoes and accessories to complete your look. And if you're already in the market for some holiday dresses, I have seen some from their collection that are just fit for the upcoming parties this season!

By the way…you're welcome! I'm glad I was able to introduce this brand to you. *Wink*

Stylish Outfits at the Fun Fun Fun Festival

 

Fun Fun Fun Festival - Austin, Texas

As some of you may know, yours truly went to Austin, TX last weekend for the Fun Fun Fun Festival to be with the Luden's crew. Luden's is a sore throat lozenge brand and was one of the major sponsors of the festival. They just came out with two new flavors – watermelon and blue raspberry, which are both available only at Target. My fave is the watermelon! I'm popping it in my mouth like it's peanuts, ha!

Anyway, so the Fun Fun Fun Festival is a 3-day festival similar to Coachella and SXSW. Honestly, I have never been to this one (or any of the festivals for that matter) so I really didn't know what to expect. I was really excited to have a small road trip to Austin to check what it's about and of course, be some sort of a paparazzi – spotting, stalking, and snapping some photos.

Although I must say that the type of music there was definitely not for me and there's waaaaay too many people to overwhelm an introvert like me, I did have a great time. It's quite an experience to be in such environment. I had fun taking photos of stylish and interesting outfits, and hanging with the Luden's crew for a bit.

Here is Luden's sign at the festival. It's almost like a photo booth area because people frequent the spot to have their photos taken.

Luden's Fun Fun Fun Festival Sign

Fun Fun Fun Festival isn't really all about fun and music in my opinion. FFF should stand for Fun, Food, and Fashion. The event was a haven of different kinds of people and let's just say that some of them were quite creative in expressing their personal style. Below are just some that caught my attention. Check it out and let me know which one is your favorite or which one is similar to your style!

Although I had spotted some bizaare ones, I only captured and shared with you here the ones which are actually wearable to stay true to the aesthetics and theme of my blog.
