Liese – Co1our, Tre2t and Styl3 advertorial, Post 2

This is a follow up post for my previous Liese advertorial!!

I said I was going to have a hair make over with Liese products, and that’s exactly what I did!

With their Colour, Treatment and Styling range, it was so easy for me to change the way my hair looks without the pricey costs of going to a professional salon and yet still achieving equally desirable results ;)

It’s really simple and I’m gonna show you girls how, step by step!!! Because I love you that much hehehe

The people at Liese picked out this gorgeous colour called Sweet Pink from their Bubble Hair Colour range for me to try and I’m so glad I trusted their choice!

I originally wanted to go for Chestnut brown to cover my faded dry looking ends, but I was informed that Liese Bubble Hair Colour will ensure an even coverage so a brighter colour like sweet pink would be more suitable for me.

I’ve never DIY coloured my hair before, and was quite nervous about using it at first, to be honest.. but then I realized I didn’t have to worry cuz their bubble hair colour is like a fool-proof formula.

Start by putting on some clothes you don’t mind accidentally staining (or drape a towel over! my “superman” cape was given by liese lol but if you’re lucky you can find Liese Bubble Hair Colour in certain stores that come with this same cape too) and wear those gloves, because you don’t want your hands getting dye all over them.

The gloves are included in the box when you buy Liese Bubble Hair Colour, so don’t worry!

And then pour the colourant from bottle A (the maroon bottle) into bottle B.

Unlike most other DIY dyes that require you to shake the bottle vigorously, this mixture needs to be gently inverted 5 times until they combine evenly. Shaking it too hard will mess up the process, so be careful with that.

Before you start, comb through your hair and make sure there are no tangles – particularly important for girls with long hair!

Once your mixture is nice and even, you can begin squeezing the bottle (don’t try to pump on the pink cap!) and you’ll find that a light foamy texture magically appears!!!

I’m honestly fascinated at how simple but ingenious this formula is.. I’ve seen other people DIY colour their hair with weird “combs” and all that shit… looks terribly messy and icky.

I would recommend starting at the roots first, because if your hair is like mine then your newly grown, uncolored “virgin” hair may be really healthy and thus super resistant to absorbing colour..

But if your “virgin” hair absorbs color really easily then start from the ends of your hair first.

At first, you might notice that the foamy texture disappears very quickly and it almost looks as if you didn’t apply any at all, but that’s completely normal.

Keep piling on that foam onto your hair in GENEROUS amounts. The more you pile, the easier it is to get vibrant and even color!!!!

(it looks like there’s no foam on my hair cuz most of it dried up after 30 mins)

But you should continue adding foam until you get something like this:

LOL what a funny picture.

Once you’ve added enough foam, pile the ends of your hair onto your head like what I did above and start to massage the formula in! Do it gently, and the more you do it, the more even your coverage will be.

Let it “set” for about 25-30 mins.

I left mine on for 45 minutes anyway hahaha. Cuz I have stubborn hair… It was safe for my scalp and didn’t cause me any irritation at all!!

This unique foam formula makes sure you get EVEN coverage, because of its light texture, it can reach every single strand, coating your hair evenly for a flawless finish.

Which is such a relief because all the super harsh chemicals in salon dye really makes me feel like my head is on fire sometimes.

Just fyi, hair length like mine used up the entire dye bottle just nicely. If you have really thick or long hair, then I suggest buying 2 bottles.

So anyway, after the waiting time is up, just rinse it thoroughly and condition your hair afterwards! They even provided a packet of leave-on nourishing lotion for you in the box. It’s supposed to smoothen and nourish your newly coloured hair~

The results?

HELLO, GORGEOUS NEWLY COLOURED HAIR!!!!

It’s a lovely shade of shiny chestnutty brown with a touch of “Sweet Pink” and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Suits my skin tone and make up so well.

It got rid of my golden / yellowish ash brown undertones and regrowth that I had before. Thank goodness, cuz that was getting so old!!

For those of you who want the same colour as me, do take note that you might not get 100% similar results because what your resulting colour will turn out to be heavily depends on your original hair colour, texure, condition, etc.

A redhead or a brunette? I can’t decide!!

Oh btw, even after just colouring my hair, it didn’t feel (or looked) damaged at all… was so soft to the touch, especially after I used Liese Hair Cocktail! (more about that later on)

I obviously can’t stop showing it off :P

It’s interesting how hair colour can change a person’s look COMPLETELY.

So now that we’ve finished covering Step 1) Hair colouring of Liese’s DIY guide to gorgeous hair, let’s move on to Step 2) Treatment and Step 3) Styling!!

I usually get a lot of questions on how I do my curls, so I decided to do a curly hair tutorial… but with a twist!!

They are bouncy lovely little curls created by a HAIR STRAIGHTENER instead of a curling iron, and I even shared with you guys my little secret to having cute wavy fringe!!


Watch my How-to-get-gorgeous-hair-by-yourself-with-Liese video below!!

Soooooooo… DO YOU LIKE IT?!?

I love ponytails and I love curls, thus I combined both!

It’s less time consuming than most other hairstyles I do as I only need to curl the ends and my fringe!

Plus it gives off an “effortless chic” vibe, which is awesome because every girl wants to look like they didn’t really bother dolling themselves up when the truth is we all spent a lot of time and effort. LOL.

And you have to admit, my fringe trick was totally awesome!!!!!

TY Liese for my newly transformed hair!!!!

I’ve been getting so many compliments about it and nobody believed me when I told them I did everything all by myself at home instead of going to a salon.

The best part about this whole post is that you can achieve this at home too - at a ridiculously affordable price at that. (nothing is above $19.90 for the products!)

All you need to do is use Liese’s products and follow their 3 steps Guide – Co1our, Tr2et and Styl3! Liese products can be purchased at Watsons and other major supermarkets.

Liese Hair Cocktail provided my hair with extra nourishment and shine, which was vital because using a straightener can be extremely damaging without proper protection. (the ends especially!!!)

Because the hair cocktail contains anti-frizz oil and nourishing water, my hair wasn’t as dry or frizzy as it usually is when I use my straightener on it. You can use it on dry OR wet hair, and it doesn’t always have to act as a styling base – great stuff for everyday use, for that extra sheen.

Liese Clear Wax Cube also helped me ensure that my pretty curls held their shape throughout the entire day.. a firm hold without weighing it down or any extra stickiness!

You know how sometimes you use wax that’s too “hard” or “heavy” that it looks like you dumped a wad of old fashioned gel onto your hair? I didn’t get that with Liese. Airy, bouncy movements was what I achieved.

Secret Sunday!!!

So I had the most brilliant idea when I was out with my family just now. (I had the PERFECT Sunday omg had so much fun ^.^)

I will be doing a weekly feature on my blog, where one random day out of the week, I’ll be blogging about certain topics that can be requested by you guys!!!

The most requested topic (can be ANYTHING at all that you want me to blog about) or the most interesting one would be the next week’s topics!

If there are no specifically suggested topics, then I’ll come up with something random myself.. Or at least this is the plan, if I manage to follow through with this.

The topics could be whatever, perhaps you’d like my opinion on a current issue, or maybe ranging from sharing hopes and dreams, to personal details, or memorable experiences and even funny / embarrassing moments!!!

So I’m going to go ahead and start the ball rolling…

Since today is Sunday, I will name this post “SECRET SUNDAY!”

Inspired by the amazing website PostSecret

As the title suggests, I’ll be sharing with you guys a secret I’ve been hiding from everyone else and have never found the courage (or need) to tell anyone.

It’s kinda social suicide, but hey, at least it makes for a good blog topic.. I THINK.

Well here goes.


This story takes place back when I was about 15 years old and still in high school.

It was just one of those days when I was hanging out at my classmate’s place while lying to my mother that I had “school projects” to do (but really we were just surfing friendster profiles) and if only I knew that it was going to be one of the most embarrassing moments of my life.

At that point in time, I had a “special” illness. Ok I wouldn’t really call it an ILLNESS per se, but there was definitely something wrong with me…

.
.
.
.

You see, I had an infection… down south.

And if you don’t get what that means, I’m saying I had an infection down there. Like down THERE, DOWN there. You geddit?!?!


……………….

Don’t ask me how does one get an infection down south because I wouldn’t know!!!

I practice good hygiene okay but it’s probably one of those teenage girl problems we all have to go through, I talked to my friends when I had it and they’ve been through the same thing before.

This INFECTION down south makes everything really itchy and uncomfortable, and the worst part of all has definitely got to be the fact that it made me pee a LOT.

And not just pee a lot, it also made me

unable to control WHEN I pee.

I don’t know why, maybe the infection fucked up my bladder or labia muscles somehow (HAHAHAHAHA) but it was the first time in my life that I couldn’t control my urges to go to the bathroom!!!!

I would be like sitting in the living room, happily and innocently watching TV…. and suddenly my eyes go big and you’ll see me jumping up and sprinting to the bathroom because I need to pee.

And when I needed to go, I NEEDED TO GO.

I had no control whatsoever and it doesn’t even give me a warning. T____T

If I don’t go within a few minutes, I would pee in my pants.

…………………

.
.
.
.
.

That very fateful day, stupid me decided that it would be a good idea to hang out at a friend’s place while having that infection and so I did, while taking necessary precautions.

I made sure I was wearing loose underwear (easy to take off HAHAH ok too much info here?) and that I was always near enough to her house’s toilet, so whenever nature calls, I could sprint there in time.

And everything worked out fine.

My friend had a good laugh at me when I told her about my situation, but at least she understood why halfway through our conversation and I’d suddenly jump up and run away.

We had a fun time at her place for a few hours, but it was getting dark already and time for me to go home.

I made sure to go to the bathroom one last time to “empty” myself out (this post is so vulgar) so that I wouldn’t have to pee on the way home…

We said our goodbyes, then I went downstairs and tried to flag taxis under her block.

It was during peak hour so pretty much every damn cab was taken…

I waited for about 15 minutes but no fucking taxi was stopping for me, and it was already quite late at that time (for a teenager to be out by herself), my mother was being very pushy and I started feeling like I needed to pee again so I was getting extremely desperate.


FINALLY,
after about 20 minutes, I saw an empty promising cab in the distance that looked like it might stop to give me a ride!

The problem was, as the cab was driving nearer and nearer to me, I could also feel my urge to go to the bathroom becoming stronger and stronger.

I told myself, “You’d better take this taxi or mummy is going to kill you for being late again” so keeping up that persistent attitude, I tried to hold my pee in… but when the cab was finally about 1 metre away from me, I HAD TO GO, LIKE NOW.

I knew that it was now or never!!!!! If I wanted to make it out alive.

I made a sharp U-turn and bolted towards my friend’s house (the taxi driver must have taught I was absolutely out of my mind for frantically flagging his cab and then running away)

but the fucking cheebye lift took so damn long to come down (I hate HDB lifts coz a lot of retards like to press buttons on every floor)

and by the time the lift came, I was about to burst and I was really jumping up and down doing the “pee” dance.

.
.
.
.

You know the pee dance???

The one where you start shifting from your left foot to your right and making strange bobbing movements (usually while holding your crotch), hoping nobody around notices you’re going to explode?

Yea, that’s the only dance I’m good at.

Well anyway the other person in the lift was giving me very weird looks and I was so afraid I was going to urinate myself right there and then in front of him because that would be so awkward… Awkward indeed.

Fuck you stranger, what are you looking at?! Never seen a girl with a funky infection that desperately needs to pee dancing in front of you before????

All that time I could only remember thinking, “DAMN IT JASMINE! Why do you have to live on the 13th floor?!?” (it was years ago but I THINK she stays on 13th floor)


After about ten gazillion bajillion thousand years,
the lift doors finally opened on her floor and I rushed right to her doorstep, only to remember that her house doesn’t have a DOORBELL.

Suay max!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I seriously wanted to die,
and I can’t remember what I did next, but I probably took out my handphone and started dialing her number or simply yelled into her house,

“I’M AT YOUR DOOR! OPEN IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!”

.
.
.
.
.
.

.

But the only thing I DO remember is that by the time Jasmine got to the door,

…I had already wet myself.

Like FULL ON peed in my fucking pants, my uniform was drenched and it was dripping down my legs and into my school shoes and socks (FML seriously) and I remember feeling very tragic and wanting to burst into tears.

I couldn’t keep it in (not my fault, infection ok!!!) and it just went everywhere and seriously nobody would ever want to be in that situation :’((((((

WHY DID THIS HAVE TO HAPPEN TO ME?!?!?!?!!?

I can’t really remember what happened next - like how the fuck did I explain to my classmate that I just peed all over her door step?

I remember the look she gave me though, and I’ll never forget how she laughed so hard at me and went “OMG, you peed yourself on my doorstep, omg.”

I think she was pretty grossed out hahahaha I WAS TOO OK!!!!!!!!!!

I just remember walking to her bathroom and washing myself up while constantly mumbling, “This is not happening… this is not happening” but it obviously happened because later on I had to carry home my urine-drenched uniform and socks in a smelly plastic bag.

.
.
.
.
.
.
.


…..And the rest went down in history.

If that’s not one of the most embarrassing moments in my life, I don’t know what is!!!

Lucky for me, my friend was quite understanding and didn’t really make a big deal out of it (she knew I was “sick) and I hope she didn’t tell anyone!!!

Well I guess it wouldn’t really matter if she told anyone now, because I basically just told the whole world that I peed my pants outside my friend’s house on my blog.

CLASSY, JESSICA!!!!

….But yeah.

I don’t believe ANYONE’S embarrassing moment can top mine!!!!!!

We all know little children pee their pants, but I was in fucking high school for gods sake. And it was only 3 years ago, now that I think about it HAHAHAHAHA.

What the fuck man.

Thankfully that infection didn’t last for very long, it went away within a few days and I made sure I didn’t leave my house (or my toilet) at all during that period of time.

Don’t wanna urinate on TOO many peoples doorsteps… one’s more than enough, thank you!!!!

It was a secret that I’d kept for 3 years but since it totally doesn’t bother me now, I thought it’d be funny to share with you guys.

It’s good to be able to laugh at yourself sometimes!!!!! I mean, we all shouldn’t take life so seriously right?!? Don’t laugh too hard at me, maybe YOU will get an infection down south and pee your own pants soon ok!

Well I hope that this story was moderately entertaining or funny and that you didn’t get too grossed out while reading it LOL.


That’s the end of my Secret Sunday.

What about you guys?
What is YOUR best kept secret that you’ve never told anyone else?

It could be anything particularly or memorably funny, embarrassing, daring, or just downright wrong, like mine!!! LOL

You can leave comments anonymously if you don’t want people to see your real identity :)

If you’d peed yourself in public before, I would love to know HAHAHA. Oh and if you have any suggestions for next week’s topic, do tell!!

How I’ve changed over time

Time REALLY REALLY REALLY flies, especially when you’re a teenager.

I can’t believe how much I’ve changed in a few short years.. Not just looks-wise, but how much I’ve grown as a person as well.

I’ve started writing a blog, I graduated from high school and got into a private uni, I made new friends and lost old ones, I got a boyfriend then dumped that one and got a new one, and so much more…

Inspired by my friend Gwen’s recent blog post, I decided to compile a list of my pictures since the beginning of 2007 until now because it’s always fun to laugh at old photos of yourself! That’s a 3 year time span.

Some pictures may be quite shocking or disturbing so be prepared!!

2007:


OMG I looked so boyish back then!!!!

“Thin layered ah lian hair” was all the rage at that time, despite my mother constantly telling me how awful I looked, I was so convinced I was being stylish ahahah FML

HAHAHAHAH TRAGIC!!!!

As you can see I had just discovered make up and was very fascinated by the fact that I could have colorful eyes wtf the adventures of a 15 year old

THOSE ARE THE WORST FALSE EYELASHES EVERRRR

Thank goodness I was only crazy about the bright blue eyeliner for awhile… I would do anything just to be “different” -_-

After this I started piling on eyeliner, super thick falsies and dark brown eyeshadow!!!! But still having the super thin hair wtf

Somehow within 2 months I stopped looking like an idiot and my make up skills suddenly got considerably better. LOL obviously trying sooo hard to look “appealing” here

*opens eye big big and lies on bed with hand in hair*


I permed my hair!!!

But it looks so pathetic coz I had almost no hair wtf. And the curls lasted only for 1 day, damn tragic.

Omg I look so crazily young hereeeeeeeeeeeeeee and the freaky thing is I still look 100% similar, just with different hair and make up.

And then I discovered photoshoots lol this was during a creative make up shoot, where I had gorgeous diamantes stuck all over my face!!!

SUPER FUN!
Probably one of my most fav shoots out of so many I’ve done.

I look eurasian here wtf (besides the fact I was cock-eyed)!!!! Must be the hair and professional make up. I wish my real eyebrows looked like that :(

I was super fair back then but the photographer made me look like Pocahontas wtf.

Until today I still think this picture is quite chio!!!

Some other photoshoots obviously weren’t quite as glamorous though. I look so auntie here T_T

My hair was so amazingly frizzy back then!!! Don’t know how I could live with it. Anyway this is my last picture for 2007 lol

.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

2008:

I discovered hair extensions… but hair still looks crappy cuz too frizzy and dry!!! When I first posted this pic on my blog I received a lot of compliments for it but I could never understand why.

I look like 30 and I don’t even look like me -_-

I started drawing my eyebrows reallyyyyy thin which was a huge mistake because everyone knows too thin eyebrows = trashy!!!

I’ve always had a problem with my eyebrows.. They’re either drawn out of shape, too dark / thick or too thin. FML I can’t wait to get my brows permanently done!

Not long after I decided to give bangs a go. Probably a good move since I was looking 10 years older than I actually was lol. I looked young again!!!!

My bangs grew out but still looked pretty decent…. And that top is gorgeous!! Where the hell did that disappear to?!? Awesome shade of green!

Halloween 2008. MAJOR FML HERE!!!!!!!!!!

WTF WERE YOU THINKING JESSICA OH NOOOOOOOO.

Those fucking thick black eyebrows, the lens-less glasses frame, the overload of make up…. *dies*

Me at Bintan, end of 2008.

LOOKING VERY NORMAL compared to the picture above.

I don’t know why but I always seem to have random fugs. It’s like throughout the years, I’d look bad, then normal, then suddenly really bad again -____-

.

2009:

Note to self - Don’t wear colour contacts that make you look like an alien!!!!

That was the first time I’ve dyed my hair, you might notice the brown-ish undertones.

I decided enough was ENOUGH, I was done with frizzy shitty hair and finally chopped it off once and for all!!!!!!!

BEST move yet!

This was the shortest I’ve ever had my hair actually.

I still prefer longer hair, but my severely damaged hair couldn’t be saved by any treatment or products, so cutting it short and letting new hair grow was the best option. You’ll see the drastic changes to my hair in the next few pictures, like a gazillion times smoother.

Happy!!!!

Super love my fake eyelashes here!!! I wonder which pair I was wearing… My ends still a bit chui but it got better really quickly.

I had on extensions for a month + (again) before I got tired of them (AGAIN) and took em out lol

But not before I thought having a few strands of pink extensions would add a nice touch -.-”””

TA-DAH!!!

Pretty healthy hair yay tyvm!!!!!!!! After so much hard work and time. I can say I have shiny and smooth hair now :’)

Started curling my hair a whole lot more at the end of 2009…


Finally, 2010:

Dyed my hair this orangey golden copper reddish colour.

Dunno what sort of colour that is lol but it’s a change!

My roots started to grow out again..

And my eyebrows have officially switched colour – they are now brown hahahaha

Had extensions AGAIN… Yes yes I know, it’s getting predictable!!!!!

I’m really old fashioned and boring when it comes to hairstyles. Anyone have suggestions on what hair I should have next?

Bought the most realistic looking short wig and fooled alot of you guys!!! Hehehehe


And this is what I look like now.

My new colour is like a deep chestnutty reddish brown and I love it!!!! It covers my copper-ish undertones from before.

I’ll let you guys know more about my dye job once my advertorial gets approved!

My make up is pretty much the same, the biggest difference is probably the fact that I always wear red lipstick nowadays!!!! I used to stay away from it in the past (well 15 year olds generally don’t look too fab wearing it)

.
.
.
.
.
.
.


….And that’s how much I’ve changed in 3 years!

Pretty impressive if I do say so myself!!!!!

Not trying to sound conceited or anything, but I believe I’ve gotten better looking each year and fixed most of my major problems (bad make up, frizzy hair, weird eyebrows etc) so go me!

The only problem is I gained a shit load of weight LOL and I have no idea how to fix it. Actually I do but I can’t be bothered -_-

Which year did you guys think was my worst? I bet it was the blue eyeliner one HAHAHAHAH actually the halloween 2008 was pretty effing bad too. AGAIN I had blue eyeliner during one of my major fugs omg this is a sign from god.

Note to self #2 - Stay away from blue eye make up.
