Here are 3 simple grooming tips that can save you loads of time and still look good during your travels!

But time is essential while we travel! We definitely can’t afford to spend 2 hours to make ourselves look good and waste good time that can be used to visit another tourist spot! Here are 3 simple grooming tips that can save you loads of time and still look good during your travels!

Grooming Tips 1: Refresh Your Hair Colour and get a Treatment done!

This is very straightforward. If you dye your hair regularly, you definitely not want to be showing those ugly hair roots! So do get your roots touched up or take the chance to get a brighter colour so you will stand out in your travel photos! Getting a hair treatment is a must because our hair usually will be in tip-top condition for at least 2 to 3 weeks depending on the kind of treatment you do. I strongly recommend the Mucota ABC Hair treatment available at Headlines By Artistry as my hair always look so good and is super easy to manage after doing the treatment. Regular treatment once every 1-2 months will means that your hair will always be in pristine condition! And when your hair is easy to manage, getting it to look good is just a matter of minutes.

Grooming Tips 2: Get Your Nails Done!

Getting your nails done adds a pop of style to your fingers so that you can put less emphasis on other areas. LOL. My set of Sailormoon uniform nails hand drawn by my trusty Manicurist Aini had gotten me loads of attention when I’m in Japan! People just get all excited when they recognised the iconic uniforms! Nobody cares about what I wear! LOL!

Plus, painted fingernails always looked better than plain nails. And it’s really affordable to get a set of nicely painted gel nails by Aini!

Grooming Tips 3: Get Eyelash Extensions! Pop of Colour Optional!

This was probably the best thing ever that I did before my trip. And a disclaimer, I paid for my extensions myself!

grooming-eyelash-extentions

Eye makeup usually takes as much time as I can do the rest of my face or even longer and I simply can’t afford that amount of time just to draw my eyes while travelling! After raved reviews from a friend who frequents KJ Studio for her extensions, I decided to get my extensions done there before my trip. I’ve also decided to add in purple coloured lashes as I felt that the extra pop of colour adds dimensions. Which also means I can really skip eye makeup altogether as the extensions creates a

I’ve also decided to add in purple coloured lashes as I felt that the extra pop of colour adds dimensions. Which also means I can really skip eye makeup altogether as the extensions creates a liner illusion and have that pop of colour!

Eyelash-travel

I opted for the unlimited lash option as my eyes are pretty big and I wanted it to be a little more dramatic so as to omit the need for eye make. Paid a total of $150 for unlimited lash plus colour after a first visit referral discount as I quoted my friend’s name. If you are interested, you can quote my member #1929 to get 10% off your first visit too! Hehe.

And I must say the extensions are pretty long lasting! They still looked pretty good after a month! I still have about half the lashes left and it’s almost 6 weeks since I did it!

Bonus Tip: Mask Every Night While On Your Trip!

Trust me! Masking nightly will ensure you having nice supple skin the next day! So bring enough sheet masks for the number of nights you’re staying! Daiso have these one week supply mask packs that are pretty good! $2 for 7 pieces of masks in one pack. Or you can bring along different flavours of sheet masks if you prefer using something different every night.

And I hope this post is helpful to you all! Of course, these tips can be applied even if you’re not travelling! 😛

Sweet Floral Nails for Japan

I’m heading to Osaka this coming Friday and I needed to get my nails done up so I can look pretty for the trip. Haha. And it means a trip down to One Love Nails to get my trusty Manicurist, Aini to do up my nails.

Told her that I wanted some floral designs and she proceeded to do magic! I don’t even have to tell her my color selection because she knew what I like! 🙂

Love the outcome which looks so sweet!

Got my toes done up in a similar design with just a slightly different color scheme.

Locycare Nail Gel 

I believed many of us ladies often goes for manicure these days. With layers of varnish on our nails, we tend to neglect that our nails are actually looking unhealthy. Especially these days where we usually cover our nails for weeks with the longer lasting gel nails.

How many times do you realized that your nails tend to get thinner and thinner, breaks easily and is very yellow? I’m guess every time we remove the varnish and gel off our nails. And each time we see ugly nails, we cover it with another layer of varnish or gel.

I received the Locycare Nail Gel a week ago and decided to see how will it help my brittle nails that’s slightly yellow and is so soft that it tears easily rather than break.

Here’s how may nails looked like before I started using the nail gel.

And this is one week after using the nail gel. I must say my nails broke on the day I took the before photo so I cut them short. Thats why it seems like my nails didn’t seem to grow.

Visible results are supposed to show after two weeks of usage but even after one week, I did notice that my nails looked a little less yellow. The more obvious difference is that my nails seems to get stronger. I used to be able to bend them easily just by pressing it but now I need to use a fair amount of force for it to bend a little. My nails also feels smoother to touch.

How the Locycare Nail Gel works is to restore water content of our nails. The constant gel nails and varnish can actually strip our nails off its natural moisture which make the nails dry and brittle. Just like how we need water to hydrates ourselves and be healthy, Locycare Nail Gel is like the water for our nails. We all know hydration is the key to a healthier body, healthier skin, and of course healthier nails.

It’s very easy to use the nail gel, just put a tiny dot on each nail and massage it all over the nail bed. I prefer to put a bigger dot a quarter of the thumb and dab on other nails before massaging the remaining on my thumbnail.

The Locycare Nail Gel is retailing at $19.90 for a 15g tube as show above at selected pharmacies.

Galaxy Nails by One Love Nails

Went to get my nails done by Aini at One Love Nails again!

I have never done Galaxy nails before so I randomly search for a design online and show it to Aini who managed to recreate and tweak it slightly to fit my nails. Love the outcome so much!! It has my favorite pastel shades, is sparkly and just so pretty!!!

 

I really feel that I’m blessed to met Aini so that I can have pretty nails when I needed it. Pretty nails can definitely brighten up your day. Haha. I know I admire my nails time to time in a day. Lol.

As I’ve mentioned before, Aini’s rates are supper affordable! A classic gelish with nail art is only $50!! You probably can only get a single color gelish elsewhere with that price.

One Love Nails By Aini 

OneLoveNails by Aini
I’m really happy for Aini who have finally opened her very own nail salon! I first knew Aini about three years ago when I was having my nails sponsored at her old place. She’s really good and skillful at her nail art designs that I don’t really do nail art outside unless it’s her. It is with the support of her regular customers that she took the first step of having her own place!  She’s like a friend to me and I’m so glad to see her fulfilling her dream.


Loving her cosy little space at Orchard Plaza. It feels just like home and I love the fact that she have curtains on so that customers can have privacy while doing nails. Plus she mainly go by appointments only so you won’t get people walking by and staring into the shop while you do your nails. And you can always enjoy a movie while getting your nails done! I stayed till the movie ended even though my nails are done way before. Haha. Her place is that cosy!

Gave her a color scheme and told her she can go free style. Aini knows the kind of nails I like and I love the outcome! Didn’t do extensions this time round as it’s not advisable to have long nails while doing makeup for others. Did I also mention that her rates are super affordable?

Nail Paint Design $25

3D Nail Art Design $45

Classic Gelish $25

Express Gelish $18
