Fat Sadako Got Her Locks Chopped Off

Yesterday, I decided to have my long hair chopped off. Had been sporting basically the same style since high school (with a little variation like layers from time to time) and college. It was just the boring generic straight (with a little help from the salon haha) and long.

At one point it got so long, I scared my dad one evening. He watched The Ring in HBO earlier and since I usually go to the kitchen around 3 am to get a drink, and he said that he thought I was some fat version of Sadako standing next to fridge with my hair hanging in my face like that. HA HA.

Anyhow...I really didn't have any hesitation when I told the stylist to simply hack it off. She even asked me if I was sure, and I was like "Go~~~".

Funny thing is that it is quite similar to Takuya's (vocalist of Uverworld) hair in their Shamrock video. For the record, I did NOT even give any specific instructions to the stylist. Damn. I guess too much fangirling on my end, eh?

Jiro actually loved it. HA HA HA.

Etude House Should Train Their SAs in CUSTOMER SERVICE

I'm sorry ladies, but this one will be a semi-rant.

Yesterday, I met up with my girls (and "kumare") [info]loveje and [info]yoru_morino at Megamall for the reason that I just wanted to meet my godson Benedict for the first time. Imagine he's two years old and yesterday was the first time we saw each other. It was a great day all in all, and I suggested to my girlfriends that we check out Etude House.

That was around 8:30 in the evening and the establishment was still packed with ladies checking out their merchandise. And since I was curious about their Milk Tea Cleansing Foam, I politely asked the SA nearest me if they still have stocks of the said product and she rudely said "Wala.".

I completely understand that she was probably doing inventory (since she was holding a clipboard and all), but would it actually hurt her to spare the customer a little bit of courtesy? I just don't get it, there I was with the complete intent to buy something from their store, but these SAs were more accommodating to the other women who were merely testing products.You can even ask my friends about it.

I also noticed another customer who was checking out their nail polish line. She was asking the SA (this is a different SA we're talking about) if the products are from Korea. The SA curtly said "Oo." and the customer also inquired "Matagal na ba 'to sa Korea?" it took the SA quite a while to answer and guess what comes out of her mouth? "Hindi ko alam eh."

I did not post this with the intent to belittle their SAs. But honestly, shouldn't they be trained with CUSTOMER SERVICE? Do I have to be decked out in jewelry just to get appropriate customer service from them?

Etude House may have better prices compared to Skin Food and Face Shop. But their SAs are superbly rude.

Plus-Sized Ladies, Let Us Take A Cue from Velvet D'Amour

Yes, this picture has been around the interwebs for ages. But I only got around to posting it just now.

Personally, I think she's fabulous. And as another plus-sized woman, I swear this year I would steer clear from the frumpy clothes I'd been wearing. Although, black is still my best friend..perhaps it's time to shift to greys hmm?

Review: Etude House Collagen Eye Patch

Arrr! I'm a pirate!

Sorry, just had to get that out of my system.

This was what got my attention first the moment I started browsing the shelves of Etude House. It only costs 75.00, so I decided to give it a shot. According to the SA, it's good for eyebags...and she said yes (but it took her like, 6 seconds before she replied). I then asked her if it'll do anything for dark undereye circles, and she just smiled and said "Yes ma'am." Ah well, maybe they should train their SA's some more.

And this baby plopped into the small basket I was carrying.

Cute packaging is indeed cute.

The product itself (I popped it in the freezer while I was taking a bath so that it's a cool treat on my peepers afterwards).

I'm not really sure if this will be really effective, so it seems that I need to buy 2 or 3 more and use it like twice a week or something.

It's a little bit messy since it's basically soaked in collagen. However, it would certainly be better if they improve the plastic container that contains the eye patches. Perhaps making it a little more secure since the solution it's soaked in tends to spill.

Other than that,so far there are no itching or allergic reactions. It's all good.

The Packaging Got Me Sold

The Eyepatch

I freakishly look like my mom here hahaha
