Eazy Fashion x Thrifted Away says Farewell to Summer ! (CLOSED)

Summer's almost done. But wait! I won't let it pass without a blog giveaway to say farewell to summer!
Eazy Fashion is your one-stop wholesale and retail fashion shop. The need to have an affordable source of fashion accessories that are in pulse with the latest fashion trends around the world is growing. This is the reason why Eazy Fashion was born.

The company rolled out its stylish and posh products in an online store in Multiply just in March 15, 2011. Fortunately, the growing demand for Asian accessories more importantly from Korea and Japan triggered the expansion and establishment of its own corporate office.

Today, Eazy Fashion is known as one of the most reliable online suppliers for fashion accessories and apparel and had been able to cater more than a thousand of customers online.

The company’s aim to be an affordable supplier of high-end fashion accessories does not stop at gaining expanding and growing for its own.

Eazy Fashion also wishes to help Filipinos start up their own business by allowing them to use the company materials such as the product photos to be posted on their own sites for business opportunities.

These people can be listed as the company’s resellers without the need of a capital. Resellers can wait for their own customers to order and pay for the items they want. This way, the company’s resellers can order only the items that are already paid by their sure buyers.

Eazy Fashion proves that a good-natured business can be done without even paying for a single centavo.

The company indeed not only wants to promote a stylish lifestyle through its products but it also wants to improve the lives of Filipinos by giving them a good source of income.

Aside from the aim to be the best online fashion accessory shop in the Philippines, this is also one of Eazy Fashion’s corporate missions.

The Company’s principles are set to only give the best products and the best deals to its customers. That's Eazy Fashion! 
Eazy Fashion is generous enough to give special gifts to my lovely lucky thrifters before we say Goodbye to Summer. One lucky thrifter will win these fab items by joining my 2nd blog giveaway
Emily 7 Brushes Set with Leather Pouch
 Fluttering Butterflies Dangle Earrings
And the LUCKY THRIFTER is : 

Thank you so much for joining!

"The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years."
— Audrey Hepburn

DIY : Ombré

Our hair is our crowning glory. For it gives us innumerous glorious memorable moments. Can you imagine flirting or being "pa-cute" without flipping your hair? It'll be so so hard to do it!

I believe that hair plays a vital role on completing the look you want to reach. It can either make or break your whole get up. 

As for this year's hair trend, Ombré is the word! Ombré is a French word meaning shaded or shading. Getting an ombré hair color is having a darker hair color on the roots with lighter color at the ends.
It became so popular when celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Lauren Conrad, Jessica Biel and Rachel Bilson strutted this look. 
As for Lauren Conrad, she blew the minds of the people by having a pink ombré. For fashion people who loves edgy look and PINK, they surely loved it. And as for the ANTI-PINK people, they think that her hair is a unicorn's tail. 
Photo from The Beauty Department
Lately, I feel so bored with my hair. I want a fresh new look. I don't have the guts to color my tresses with pink since I'm working and dealing with clients. They might think that it is inappropriate in the corporate world. But I'm really planning to have ombré soon but not pink. 

As for now, enough of the excuses! There is also an option for temporary pink ombré. (Yehey!) 
Photo from Savannah of Oh So Pretty the Diaries
This is taken from Savannah of OH SO PRETTY the DIARIES. Here are the steps: 
1. Wet your hair where you want the color to be.
2. Twist your hair and stroke with a soft pastel (like the chalky kind you create art with.)
3. Let hair dry and run a brush through the hair to remove excess chalk.
4. Style your hair in a way where it will not move a lot. It is best to braid your hair or pin it up in a bun to save your clothes from forming into the color of your hair. (wear a black top to wear your hair down.)

And oh, if you want to make it more colorful you can also mix it with blue, green and purple pastels.  
So, what do you think? :)

Caught in a bad BROWmance - Browhaus Manila

I have a bad browmance story to tell. .

Back in the days when Koreanovelas was still fresh in the Philippines, I was an avid fan of Stairway to Heaven. Fresh faces with silky smooth complexion, I was really envious of their thick clean brows.
And as a teenager with bushy brows, I was really insecure of how I look.

Then one night, my insecurity swallowed my self-esteem. I got a pair of scissors. And cut off the my arch. It was a nightmare. I looked like I had a scar from a fight. Horror of horrors my good intentions became my worst beauty nightmare! And to keep my little secret, I chopped off my hair and put bangs to hide it.

Lesson learned: Don't dare to lift a finger on your brows! Always seek for professional help.

Last Saturday, I was invited to try Browhaus Brow Salon at Greenbelt 5.
Browhaus is an international brow and lash salon franchise from Singapore. There are 2 branches in the Philippines. One in Serendra which started in 2009 by Ms. Tab Abad and second, in Greenbelt 5 which started in 2008. They also have a salon in Boracay which opens seasonally.
Every branch has its own theme, and as for Browhaus GB5, their "submarine" theme is eye catching and very interesting. 

You don't want to be as hairy 
as mrs. orangy the orangutan and her babies, right?!
The ambiance of the salon is very relaxing and welcoming. Their 7 brow architects including their Operations Manager, Ms. Shayne Tiuman, are all kind enough to accommodate every customer. They answer each queries with enthusiasm and encourage their customers to seek for any clarifications.
With Ms. Shayne Tiuman

Now, Let's do this! 
Case # 101 : Uneven and over-plucked brows
Janela, my college friend, used to shape my brows for me. But now she's working overseas, so I try my best to learn on how to keep my brows in shape, but despite of my best efforts, I can't achieve the perfect brows that I need. And today's the day I need to make a change!

Browhaus brow architects were trained by their mother branch in Singapore. So, don't fret! They are the experts. 
With Ms. Ana, my brow architect ♥
The treatment that I'll be having today is called Browgraphy. It is the combination of Color tweak and threading. 

First off, Color Tweak - since I dyed my hair. They are using hypoallergenic products imported from their mother branch in Singapore. So, no need to worry about dyeing your brows! 
chilling while waiting for the dye to set in
Next will be the threading and plucking of brows. This was my first time to try eyebrow threading. For those ladies who shave their brows, I would advice you to keep your hankies on hand! You'll get it once you're already there. haha! 

And now I'm done! Their high-end electric chair for the eviction of guilty brows is very relaxing and I almost fell asleep.
The result: 
Very nice, ne? :)

Currently, they are offering their newest service which is the Brow Resurrection. It is a temporary hair like eyebrow tattoo. It's really fascinating how they transform each guilty brows with perfect looking brows.  

As for their menu of charges,

Love their services? You may want to try their Browhaus Savings Plan!

They have a lot of packages to choose from, just ask their brow architects and they'll be glad to explain them to you. 

Fast growing hairs? Try their Strip Peace. It is anti-inflammatory which retards hair growth, moisturize and kills bacteria.
Each ampule costs P550.00
They also have an on going promo for Strip, for every Brazilian treatment pay only P1,500 & get an ampule of Peace Strip and you'll save P250.00!

I'd like to thank Ms. Shayne Tiuman and Ms. Tab Abad of Browhaus Greenbelt 5 for the wonderful treatment of my brows and tokens.
