Tuesday, July 6

summer sunset





UO tops, shoes; F21 necklace, jeggings


Hooray, it's a short week.
In 4 days I will be on vacation, four complete days of relaxing and escape from work.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, and for those in the US, I hope you had a fun July 4th!

P.S. Has anyone experienced upper lip/eyebrow threading? I have never tried it, but am considering it. I wanted to know if it's painful and does the grow back thicker? I'd appreciate any feedback, thanks! :)

  2. Hahaha, I think I just bought that same exact necklace the other day from F21! We've got good taste ;] My friend gets her eyebrows threaded...she says it hurts a bit but worth it, lol.

  7. nice outfit! so summerlike!

    i once followed an tutorial at youtube for eyebrow threadening -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iVmbHB2p4WM (of course there are hundreds more outthere) i tried it only once, not tha~t difficult, but needs some practice anyway. didn´t work out very well for me in the end, cuz my hairs are quite thick. think it´s great with small and thin hairs.

  8. hoorah for jeggings!!! aren't they the most comfortable things in the world? I'd wear jeggings over jeans any day!

  9. My friend does eyebrow threading. It doesn't seem to grow back darker since she does it once every two weeks and eyebrow hair grows back within days. I'm sure you'll get used to the pain. The end result is great!
    Nice photos btw.

  11. hellooo christine :) i havent had the time to check my bloglovin for the longest time but your comment reminded me how long i have not had my 'tie me a bow' fix. i've tried eyebrow threading & it isn't *too* bad, considering my threshold for pain isnt very high. the eyes might tear a little though. & it doesnt really grow back thicker cos they get it out right by the roots! i think it's supposed to grow back softer in fact :) have fun & enjoy your vacation!

  12. Hiiiiiiiiiiii Christine!! I have never tried threading, but I always get asked by the women that run the kiosks at the mall.. My friend has tried it before (she goes to a license salon) and she swears by it.. she LOVES it.. she also mentioned that at first there a zap of pain, but totally tollerable. Let me know what you think if you try it! Hope you're doing great.. so lucky you're going on vacay! Where to?

    xx Love & Aloha

  16. i've gotten threading on my eyebrows done once, it's not as bad as you think. it was quite a while ago that i got it done though. i've always been meaning to go back but always say to myself "you save money by plucking." i'm trying to remember what happens when you get there....i remember holding my eye so that the person has two hands to hold the thread. that's basically it i remember thinking it went real quick.

  17. Those sandals are amazing and your toe nails are so well manicured! Have a lovely vacation and enjoy your relaxing vacation! And yes, don't torture yourself... Airbender is not worth it... I felt like I was being tortured... bad experience! Take care and have a safe trip!

  20. Enjoy your vacation, dearest!!

    And regarding threading, it's painful at first, but you get used to it. The process leaves your skin a little raw and red, so I wouldn't engage in any special dates immediately after. The redness winds down after a couple of hours though, and the hair won't grow back thicker. :]

  21. Ohhh, I love your shoes! And sorry, I've never been for a threading, so I can't help :(

  31. Lovely photos darling! Great great sandals. They're gorgeous in white.

    Trust me, I've had plenty of bad experiences which is why I warn my hairdressers at least 10 times before they begin cutting my hair to "keep the length". I've been satisfied the last two times but the trim isn't much of a trim either. My hair looks exactly the same afterwards just feeling lighter. Then again, I'm too afraid for anything shorter than what I already have haha. It's so complicated! Your hair is at a very nice length now though!! :)

    Love the outfit! Happy 4th of July.

  40. I get threaded. I've been doing it for 2 years, and I notice my hair growth is slower and lighter.

    It hurts though, a lot! Five minutes of threading feels like 5 hours of getting tattooed.

  47. CHRISTINEEEE!!!!!!

    Hello Hello my dear! I feel so MIA from blogger. =( I don't know if I've commented recently but I have been reading your posts! It's just a pain to type out comments on my iPhone. Touch screen keyboard sucks for long messages. {*BLAH}
    Anyways! Loving your photos. I really like your photo shop skills. Makes me feel like I need to practice but I have no time. I barely have time to read blogs and comment. {*eek}

    Your shoes are too cute! I love them! White is perfect for the summer. I almost said spring {*whoops}. Time flies by so fast. I think it still semi feels like spring because the weather is so bipolar. Whatevers.

    You should try Santouka!! It's oh so yummy. I went three times this past week. =X
    OIY!! I forgot to tell you I went to Socal 4th of July weekend. Stayed in the OC. It was a completely spontaneous trip. Just a random comment.

    Well I hope everything is going well. I really like the photos of your journal/notebook in your recent posts. Creative. Makes me miss doodling in my planner.

  54. LOVE the shoes. i've gone eyebrow threading... you live in LA right? you should head down to little india... they do it for $3.99 and they're REALLY good. no it didn't grow back thicker, and i just upkeep it with tweezers from then on. it's really worth it... if you're doing it for the first time, it hurts a little but it's bearable and they put lotion onto the area to reduce redness.

  55. so cute outfit!
