Cliff Diving in Canibad, Samal

CLIFF DIVING

I know each of us has our own fears. May it be fear of roaches, fear of heights or even fear of the unknown. At some point, we never know that we fear something not unless we see them standing right before us. This is what I came to realize when I was standing at the edge of a cliff, getting ready to dive into the blue waters surrounding it.

My Night Time Skin Care Regimen

skin careFor the lazy busy person, because a lot is going through during the day, he or she sometimes ends up just washing his or her face before heading to sleep. But little do we know, washing alone is not enough. We need to thoroughly remove any dirt buildup acquired throughout the day. We also need to nourish our skin in order to help repair itself overnight. That is why I have to extend my patience in dealing with my face at night.

My Name is Blonde. James Blonde.

Okay, forget about the cheesy title. Christmas is just a day away and it won’t be long for New Year’s to pass our lives as well.

Like a lot of people say: “New year=New life.” I thought that it would be interesting to change how my hair looks just before year 2016 arrives. No, I’m not changing it in terms of the length. I am changing its color. That’s right folks. I bleached my dark hair into a beaming blonde.

Here is a photo of me with my old hair. Now, compare it with my bleached hair.

I used a bleaching powder mixed with 12% developer. Made sure that the mixture is creamy and not grainy nor fluid. After I applied it, I then left it on my hair for 10 minutes before rinsing. The first wash won’t get you the desired result right away especially if your hair is as dark as mine. I ended up doing 4 repeats of the process just to get the results of the above picture.

I am planning on doing an ombre look using a pink hair dye. I don’t know yet. Maybe I could get you an update soon. I just hope I won’t be lazy to do it.

I think that’s it for now. I hope you’re enjoying your holidays as much as I do. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Even if you fail, it would still teach you a lesson. Merry Christmas!
