[Beauty] Eyelash Extension @ Pink Passion The Signature Salon

I always believe the saying "eyes are the windows to your soul", and if you have read my previous posts you would know I am a true believer to this. To have an "attractive" eyes, I believe eyelashes plays a very important role.

I've tried all means to have long, curly and thick lashes, from applying serum to using the best mascara that could create this effect. Recently, I was given the opportunity to have an eyelash extension experience at Pink Passion The Signature Salon at Aman Suria.

With the shocking pink exterior, it's very easy to spot the salon. Parking would probably be a problem during weekdays, but since I went on a Sunday late afternoon I had no issue getting one.

The interior is very feminine, They have used the colour pink in a very brilliant way, creating a cosy and welcoming ambiance at the salon. Pink Passion has been in the industry for more than 5 years. Apart from eyelash extension, they provide body and face treatments too, such as body massage, and facial.

I was led into the room with dimmed lighting and soothing music playing at the background. Although I wasn't nervous about the extension, but the lighting and music was very calming - and I really liked it  a lot. p/s: sorry for not taking the room's photo due to the dimmed lightings.

Before starting the procedure, I was given a choice to have a dramatic look or a natural; and I go for the latter. A piece of surgical tape will be placed just under the eyelid to separate the upper and lower lashes, and to prevent the glue from getting into the eyes. I did not feel any pain nor uncomfortable throughout the process, except the feeling of them trimming the false lashes. 

Once it's done, you'll have to wait for a bit for the glue to dry up. I was told the extension process would take about an hour, but I was done less than that. So..... how's the result?!!

CubeCrate: Your Monthly Box of Surprises!

At one point, beauty boxes used to bloom like mushrooms after the rain but it eventually dies off. Truth to be told, I jumped onto the bandwagon too but got pretty disappointed - the products were either useless to me or not worth the value (you'll see tons of samples that you could redeem from those beauty counter =_=||).

Due to my past experience, I did not have much expectations when I came across CubeCrate thinking it's just another beauty box. I realized how wrong I could have been when I opened my very first mysterious box from CubeCrate.

CubeCrate is very similar like beauty box. What set them apart? One word - varieties! In addition to beauty products, CubeCrate add in various items such as decor items, handy everyday things, midnight snacks (Yes, they have food too!!!!) and cute accessories. On top of this, subscribers would not get to choose what categories you prefer, so it's really a mysterious box. This is like celebrating Christmas and birthday EVERY MONTH. Worry the goodies in the box might not suit you? Fret not, as they will send you another one at no extra charges.

Every items in the box were carefully handpicked by them. For a box full of actual size items at only RM25, I find it to be very affordable. In fact, the value of the box is more than what you pay for! I opened up my September box, and it immediately put a smile on my face. =)

Joey's Homemade Peanut Butter
I'm a huge fan of peanut butter, especially the creamy ones but I've never tried any other nut butter before. I'm now definitely a fan of Joey's Homemade Cashew Butter. Compared to the usual peanut butter, the texture is slight runny and might not be as runny but it tasted soooo good! It's nutty and not too sweet - perfect to spread over bread or crackers. Psst...I heard they have Almond Butter too ^_^

Charmaine Handmade Keycovers
The keycover from Charmaine Handmade Keycovers is a cute yet practical. Basically, the covers were designed to keep your keys away from scratching your phones. Also, it made finding keys in your bag a much easier job now.
