Paid a visit to GLOMAX Aesthetics! I love coming here for a facial fix! I have tried a number of their award winning facial treatments, which you can read here and here; and I have no complaints, nada! 

I hate to admit it, but I had been neglecting my skin cause of my busy schedule. My skin was feeling dehydrated due to the hours I spend on the plane and my skin was looking dull due to my odd sleeping patterns. So, for this visit I decided to try the HYDRAULIC LAYERING REJUVENATE OXYGEN TREATMENT ! I was so excited to try out this Hollywood favourite treatment, cause of it's list of benefits:
  1. Dramatically enhances the skin's overall hydration.
  2. Rejuvenate uneven skin tone, making it look brighter and luminous.
  3. Soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  4. Restores, binds and attracts moisture.
  5. Plumps up the skin and helps the skin look firmer.
  6. Creates clarity in skin and continuous radiance.
The thing about this treatment is, it comes with no fuss and frills; it is a quick treat for your skin! Perfect if you want to head back to work or have a meet up, without the splotches and the worries. Hehe! This is how the treatment works:  

  • The specialist first cleansed and exfoliated my face thoroughly.
  • Then the session started off with microdermabrasion, the machine gently unclogs the pores to enable maximum ingredient penetration. It felt as if a plunger was sucking out all the impurities in my pores. I was happy to see the was-white cotton, it meant my pores were free of dirt and excess oil.
  • Next step was sonic cleansing, the machine removes dead skin cells and smoothes the skin, resulting in a glowy, even skin tone. In order to see the full effect of the treatment, it is important that the skin is decongested.
  • The following step was extraction. Just a note, this was an add-on, it doesn't come with the treatment, but you can request to combine this with another treatment. Although I hate this step, I personally find it the most important part of any facial! That's cause I can't seem to get rid of all my blackheads and whiteheads on my own. Boo!
  • After that, it was time to start the treatment with O2! The machine introduces oxygen directly into the skin's pores; the oxygen is treated with a cocktail serum in which the skin absorbs for maximum dispersion of nutrients. The cocktail is made up of different ingredients with different properties:
    • Hyaluronic Acid - Delivers essential vitamins and antioxidants to the skin 
    • Aloe Vera - Calms and moisturises.
    • Green Tea - Helps neutralise free radicals.
    • Vitamin A - Essential for healthy cell growth and an antioxidant.
    • Vitamin C - Essential for collagen synthesis and an antioxidant.
    • Vitamin E - Provides a barrier against loss of hydration and an antioxidant.
  • The specialist gently delivered the oxygen and cocktail serum into my skin, improving my skin's hydration levels and targeting my expression lines/wrinkles. She started with the right side off my face to show me the before and after effect. I instantly saw a smoother appearance for the fine lines under my eyes, better volume and increased firmness of my cheeks! Wowza!
  • The specialist then used something that felt like metal balls to lightly massage the cocktail serum into my skin. I felt so cool and calm with the combination of the oxygen, serum and massage that I practically dosed off. 
  • The facial ended with light cleansing, dabs of toning, some moisturising and a layer of UV protection. 

I left the place with my skin feeling hydrated and happy! I was all ready to go out and about around town!

Here are some bare-skin selfies I took later in the evening! My skin is looking and feeling glowy, radiant and fresh; and it only took forty-five minutes to give my skin the hydration boost it needed! 

I think this has become my favourite treatment, I love the results! And since I believe good things must be shared, here's an offer for you readers who want to try this Hydraulic Layering Rejuvenate Oxygen Treatment!

Treated my locks to some tender loving care, at my official hair salon - ZINC KOREAN HAIR SALONIt's been a while since I've let my hair loose! I've been keeping it tied up in a messy bun cause it has been out of shape. But as you can see now, my tousled waves fall nicely with a healthy shine and a noticeable bounce!

My hair was in need of a some saving! Cause I do the works, from straightening to curling to blow drying to excessive hair spraying; and all that has made my hair parched and frizzy. My black roots were starting to grow out and my top was flat due to the heavy bottom weighing it down.

When I arrived at the salon, Rany, my favourite hairstylist took me to a seat covered in magazines and dressed me in a silky red robe. I trust her completely with my hair, I just tell her my hair issues and then I leave my hair is in her hands; no questions asked!

So to start off, Rany protected my hair and scalp by applying an emulsion of SP Treatment to my roots. The treatment is a specially developed formula that works to repair, nourish and protect hair. She then mixed some dye to create a light, chestnut brown; and parted my hair into different sections. Then she carefully brushed the dye to my roots, mid-length, ends; and constantly checked on my hair after the application. It took some time for my stubborn hair to absorb the colour, so I read some fashion magazines; and before I knew it, it was time to run my hair under warm water and wash off the dye. She washed my hair with SP Colour Save Shampoo and SP Colour Save Treatment to aid in maintaining the colour and soothe the sensitivity of my scalp due to the colouring. After all that, she blow-dried my hair, gave my hair a much needed haircut and styled me some Korean waves! It's amazing how my hair is much lighter, although she didn't cut too much layers nor cut off the length. Whether I curl or straighten my hair, my hair stays in shape, feeling soft and looking full!

It took three hours to create wonders to my hair, and my hair has never felt or looked so good. It is the perfect colour and condition! And it's all thanks to Rany + Zinc Korean Hair Salon!

With their professional recommendations and handiwork, rest assured that your hair is in good hands. I am also happy to announce that ZINC KOREAN HAIR SALON will be my official HAIR & MAKE UP sponsor for my WEDDING! I am proud to have them play a part in my white affair.

Received a Fair Boy bracelet in the mail! I have always had a thing for the Fleur de Lis; the reason why has always been a mystery to me. I don't even know the meaning of the symbol, but I think it's name is pretty to the ears and it's shape is pretty to the eyes!

Found a boutique ice-cream café called TROPICAL MONKEY on the fifth floor of Central Embassy! It's a little jungle with cold treats, wooden blocks and yellow tones; it makes a cozy place to rest my feet and have something sweet!

I am in love with their homemade I C E - C R E A M! They come in the strangest flavours, but each batch is made with natural ingredients to create a strong taste. Each flavour literally tasted like it's name! I honestly wanted to try everything on the menu; I had a hard time choosing between the Rocky Road Ice-Cream P I E, the Strawberry Cheese Ice-Cream C A K E, the Brownie Ice-Cream S A N D W I C H, or the Tropical Mango Ice-Cream S U N D A E. And trust me, every carefully crafted creation I ordered tasted as good as it looked! The combination of each creation literally melted in my mouth, with a nutty crunch at the end. Mmm!

I love this earthy, rustic
 café! Here's my photo diary of Tropical Monkey:

Sawadeeka! Celebrated the end of another year and kicked start another year in the land of smiles. I love everything about Bangkok; fantastic food, fashion frills and friendly faces! It's my favourite place for a little getaway, it's always full of life and energy!

I had so much fun daily, from day to night; but I think it's best if I share mini snippets of my week in this paragraph. Treated my tummy to all kinds of Thai food, authentic and fusion. Got a great mix of dresses, tops and bottoms to dress up my closet for the new year. Made a birthday wish on a coconut crepe cake. Ended my birthday with a chocolaty surprise delivery from the hotel. Dined under the stars with my parents at Asiatique. Ushered in the new year by making my prayers at Erawan Shrine. Had the best pomelo salad while exploring the House of Jim Thompson. Found little trinkets for my white wedding. Roamed the streets of Bangkok with Le'En, in search of his favourite beef noodles. Took a stroll under cotton clouds and sunshine cause all the cafes were closed. And wrote my new year resolutions before the plane took off. This getaway was the perfect way to end and start the year!

Sawasdee Pii Mai Ka! To new beginnings and all the beauty that still remains. Here's a look at my photo diary, it's not in order but I think this composition works better. Haha!
