Dermcare Luxe Hair Color Treatment Review Plus Giveaway

The last time I had a hair makeover was my ombre hairstyle in late 2014. I really liked my sombre mane that I kept it that way for months. I also felt lazy going back for a retouch when my roots were starting to show. I only went twice to the same salon to have an appointment, but the senior stylist who had my hair done was absent on both occasions.

Blogger Summer Party at Club Manila East

It is officially summer! Here in the Philippines, that is. Just yesterday, the city went up to 34 degrees Celsius in actual temperature, with real feel of 38. Living in a tropical country could be paradise if one is in the beach, but residing here in the city could prove to be sometimes hellish.
