In that blog post of mine, I gushed on the hair color which my stylist, Chester, had done for me. It was certainly something different. To be honest, I was afraid how dark it would be, as I was not accustomed to such dark-colored hair tone. However, it turned out GREAT! And till to date, I have received nothing but compliments from my friends whom saw my hair color in real life when I met up with them!

And so with that, more reason for 'Dark-hair Feliza' selfies! :p

I absolutely love the hair trim that Chester did.
Especially so because of the hair ends, wispy and lightweight-feel.

Together We Are Stronger. The Pink Way!

There are a lot of sports that require teamwork. For example, dragonboating. Teamwork is about supporting and watching out for each other in the team, as well as being in sync as a team. If one slackens or gives up in his/her rowing, or unable to go with the drum beat, the overall speed and strength will be weakened.

Hence, "Together we are stronger".

This whole thing about teamwork also means a lot to the breast cancer patients out there. With the encouragement and support from their loved ones, patients have the emotional strength to battle it out with this life-threatening disease.

The Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) is an annual event held globally in the month of October. This is when Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns are carried out, as well as to draw attention and raise funds for research and effort work carried out for breast cancer treatment and prevention. You can show your support for this cause by educating your loved ones and friends - Spread the important message on early detection and breast cancer screening, for it can save lives!

Do it for yourself and your loved ones. Bring forth this awareness to even the men in your family, for they are the necessary pillar of support, especially for their female partner/family member who may have been diagnosed with breast cancer. For you see, "Together we are Stronger", and yes, it is the theme for 2014's BCAM! :)

For all that you might have already know, I have been doing the annual "Pink Fridays" routine - Where I wear the Pink Ribbon' and don PINK outfits on every Friday in the month of October!

The pink ribbon is a universal symbol for awareness and hope for breast cancer patients that they can lead normal lives after breast cancer, if detected early. Show your support and awareness by wearing the pink ribbon this month!

Where To Get the Pink Ribbon for Breast Cancer Awareness Month???

You can get a simple pink silk ribbon 
from any of the Estée Lauder makeup counters.
(This brand has been in support of this cause since the 90s, started by the late Mrs Evelyn H Lauder.)

Alternatively, make a donation of $2 to get a limited-edition Pink Ribbon pin, just like how I always did! :) The collected funds will go towards Singapore's Breast Cancer Foundation's effort of raising awareness of Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention, fund-raising activities and support group for breast cancer patients. Each year, I will match $2 for every Pink Ribbon pins that I give to my family members, close female friends, and all of my female colleagues. I hope you can do the same thing as well if you would like to help raise awareness. :)

Thanks to Ms Wong from TANGS who gamely and kindly posed for the above photo!
(Disclaimer: The cashier counter had no customer at that point in time, and she was being nice, unlike her camera-shy colleague who did want to pose together and even shuddered when she saw the photo that she was still in the photo frame despite trying to shun away. No, I am not bitching, but I am proud of Ms Wong for being proud of this cause which her very own company supports too! Thumbs up for you!!!).

I also briefly spoke to Ms Wong regarding this BCAM campaign and she is also one who thinks this cause, and raising awareness of it, is important. I hope that there are more people like her out there!

Roadshow dates (Where you can get your pins at):

04, 05 and 06 October 2014: Takashimaya from 11am to 8pm
11 October 2014: Tampines
11 and 18 October 2014: Marks & Spencer Wheelock

Donation Boxes (Examples of some of the many participating merchants):

I am in no way affliated with the Breast Cancer Foundation.Nor I was paid or urged by any to write this post.
I wrote this post as I support this annual event as an Individual. I will have another blog post pertaining to the BCAM in time to come.And thanks for reading! I hope you will go get the Pink Ribbon pin! :)
I shall end off here...

But before you go and have fun on this long weekend, do check out my past posts relating to BCAM! :)

Anticipating Autumn with Salon De Choix!

It will be 2 full years that I have been collaborating with Salon De Choix...
Thanks to them for being my lovely sponsor for all my hair needs and vanity!
I always love the results that I get from each of the hair sessions.
Hence, the latest one is of course, a delight.

It was a delight for I did a major change during August's session with them!
For the first time in many years, I did a DARK COLOR hair dye job instead!

 photo DSC08038_.jpg

What do you think of the end result, as shown in the picture above? My skin seems to look fairer, my hair seems to look healthier and smoother, and you have to agree that the dark color is so fitting for the alluring Autumn season! :p

But wait a minute,
how was my hair looking like just as I entered the salon?
Look at photo below.
Light-colored, dark hair roots, split ends!

I simply had to do something about it! Especially so as I was having a photo shoot the next day! My hair tresses needed to be in the best condition and it has to look the BEST that it could ever be! Hence, Chester, my Salon De Choix's stylist, comes to the rescue!

Firstly, we had the usual mini consultation session, where I will show him some photos as reference, and he will do the same as well. I will share with him colors that I prefer, or if there are any upcoming events in my life, etc. Always remember... Your hair stylist, apparently will and do know many bits and pieces of your life, hahaha! For this session, we agreed on using B5.02, which is a lavender brown color. It has that purplish undertone in the dye, which gives the slight cool tone despite that afterall, it is still  - Brown.

After the relaxing hair wash session after rinsing off the hair dye,
it was time for my hair treatment!

I loved that my treatment products were made to be rich in argan oil!
It effectively helps to improve my hair texture, elasticity, shine and strength!

Once my hair treatment was done, my hair was rinsed,
and I returned back to my seat.
And to be surprised by the soothing warm towel at the back of my neck.
It felt sooooooooo good!

While waiting for my hair snip!

Check out the close-up photo below!
See how smooth my hair  is, and how healthy the hair ends are especially!
 photo DSC07965_.jpg

I was stroking through my hair.
With obvious signs of me being so satisfied
with the hair color AND the smoothness!
 photo DSC07973_.jpg

Time to snip those ends and to give a hair a good nice shape!
 photo DSC07975_.jpg

So smooth, so smooth....
I marvelled at my own hair, looking at myself in the mirror. Haha!

Take a closer look at my ends, after Chester did my hair trim for me. :)

All thanks to Salon De Choix! :)

Personally, I feel the dark color is indeed very suitable for the upcoming autumn season. This new hair color differs from the past many hair color sessions that I had. With that lavender tone, it does not project just a normal brown color, and that is the interesting aspect of this shade!

As much as this darker color may give a serious look, it looks stylish in its own way too! :) My hair looks healthier in this dark shade. On top of that, the hair treatment works well that my hair feels smooth and silky. Yes, I could not help but to keep touching my hair!

And given the fact that I am heading off to Europe this week, I am absolutely pleased with this hair color! ^_^

More of my selfie shots below, and in my next post! 
Watch out for it! :)
