An Official Cosmoprof Academy Model

So the Sister Missionaries at church asked me if I could help their investigator by letting her do my makeup for practice for her cosmetology school. Of course I said yes! And then they sent me a picture of the makeup she did on them...


And it got real. I laughed for like 5 minutes straight (in a good way), immediately told my family, and prepared for the best Wednesday ever.



In the cab she showed me the plan for my makeup and I was like yeah cool, no biggie.


This one shocked me a tad more...



Here's us in the cab!


Heres some of her other work. This is when I know we're about to live it up.




I had thought it was going to be chill, with me hanging out in some room while she does my makeup and we take lots of selfies. Turns out I had to have a special badge, and this was a weekly exam. All the students were there with their models and they were timed for makeup and hair.




Intense. High pressure for Leyla, I felt bad. I was living it up though! :)


Apologies in advance for the same angle. Pictures are kinda frowned on.






And the makeup is finished!


So she pulls out all these fake braids... And I get a bit worried (not gonna lie)



She put 3 (THREE) of those fake bun/sock bun things in my hair.


Then she made my hair cover it, and then covered it in braids.


Gotta have the bling of course...



The other students did hair and makeup that played it safe and didn't push the time boundaries. Leyla worked up until the last second and I LOVE IT. Be bold! Everyone loved it!



Our language barrier was a little bit difficult (she's a native French-speaker and I know absolutely no French) but we got by, and she never once got discouraged even though she's in an English school.



LOOK AT IT.

This picture makes me realize how awful my posture is, but look at the HAIR.


And this is how I went home, slicked back ponytail and all. And I might be able to help her out in August with her wedding look where she would have me wear a wedding dress (modest of course) though I might be in HK again... Overall this was so fun, and Leyla is the kindest person ever! I would love to go back all the time :)

Indian Heritage Centre


Today we got henna done again so we could go with Tania before she heads back to Australia! This was $10 and looks amazing right now. I thought I would try it on the whitest part of my arm to see if it stays longer than last time (2 weeks).




Then we went to the Indian Heritage Centre! Right across from the shops in Little India.






So sorry for the lameness. I couldn't help myself :')








I would definitely recommend this museum! It's not necessary to do a guided tour like we did. The tour guide was really nice, I just like walking aimlessly or reading about things in museums.



Then, of course, we got naan, butter chicken (but just the sauce for dipping our naan into), and lime juice. We explored Arab street (where I found this awesome shirt) and then Mom and I went to warehouse with Jane and Julianna. Girls week!

Haw Par Villa


Today we went out with Jane and Julianna to Haw Par Villa! It's only a few MRT stops away from us on the circle line, and completely free.



I like to call this one "See what I did to this snake? That'll happen to you if you don't get off my property." It's a title in progress.



How do I manage to look this good all the time? No one knows.



I call this one, "What Rob Dyrdek should've given to Big Cat instead of a tiger-print cop car."


And then there was the "Ten Courts of Hell"


Little bit depressing...




Here's the first sculpture...


...And the last one. This place was interesting, but over the top. These little sculpture guys were shown tortured in the most gruesome ways. Don't bring your kids to this. Everything outside this tunnel is fine, but this would be pretty traumatic.



They included us. Does my heart good :')



And then I remembered I had a snapchat, so bear with me...











I mean really, what were these sculptures supposed to mean? They're pretty great whatever they are



And then we went back one stop to Pasir Panjang for a lime juice, which is top 3 drinks in Singapore for me. And I went on a run tonight! (well, a walk/run/wheeze but hey)
