5-Minute Hair Makeover Challenge by Hair Depot ❤

Two weeks ago, ten bloggers including me were invited to attend this 5-minute Hair Makeover Challenge organized by Hair Depot at e@Curve. Thank you The Butterfly Project for the invitation! I was wondering how is it possible for me to complete my hair makeover in just 5 minutes?

On that day itself, we were introduced to this new Auto Spin Curler which we would be using this amazing curler to complete our 5-minute challenge. Since there were 10 of us, we were divided into 5 teams. 2 persons would be competing with each other other in this 5-minute hair makeover challenge. 

Everyone must be wondering that this Auto Spin Curler would be the curler where the hair would be sucked into the curl chamber and it will be curled on its own. Apparently you are wrong. This Auto Spin Curler has an auto 360-rotating clamp that will curl your hair automatically. Probably you can imagine how this hair curler will work. Let me show you a tutorial of this Auto Spin Curler. 

After watching the video, I am pretty sure that you girls out there must be impressed with this Auto Spin Curler. (: 

I was impressed too and in fact I was way more than excited because I got to try this curler on my own in this 5-minute hair makeover challenge. Both Sarah and I were placed in the 1st group. Before we started our challenge, we were taught on how to use the curler.

Since Sarah and I would be the first two to go for the challenge, we also learnt on how to curl the hair on the model's hair except that the curler iron was not heated.

Yes. This is me curling the hair on the model. (:

Both of us started the challenge first. We were given 5 minutes to start off the challenge. During the challenge, the lady was so kind to help me to grab of my hair that were not curled while I was busy curling that particular part of hair. I got to aware of the L and R button which will determine how your curling iron will rotate.

Since it was my first time trying out this Auto Spin Curler, I was so nervous that my hand was shaking when I was holding the curler. It may seemed easy to curl when it was my turn to curl, I had no idea but the strands of hair I grabbed did not seem to curl pretty well. Probably I did not wait for few seconds before letting my hair off. 

After my 3rd minute of curling the hair, I realised that I did not have much time to curl my the other side of the hair.. So I went and curl my right hand side instead since time was running out. When I was about to get excited about curling the hair, the time was up.I was a bit sad because I was already at midst of mastering the skills of curling the hair using the curler. =( 

Tough yet fun challenge. (:

It turned out that I only managed to curl part of my hair only. You can see the after photo of the curls. The curls were quite natural and I am loving it. To be frank with you guys, I don't really curl my hair even though I have 3 curling irons with me at home. This is because each time I curl my hair, my hair tend to get straight very fast even though I sprayed my hair using hair spray. Secondly the reason is that, it will take ages to curl the whole head of mine because my hair was way too thick. Normally I need about 1 or 2 hours to curl my hair if I choose to attend events with wavy hair. So I decided to go to events with my straight hair to events most of the time. =/

Ker Chi and Grace went as the second team to compete for the challenge and followed by Caroline and Choulyin. After that, Kah Mon and Yuh Jiun tried on their hair and the last team was Furfer and Ridley.

Caroline managed to finish curling up her hair within 5 minutes. Super fast! 

There was a fair going on during the event too where they are selling the Auto Spin Curler and the rest of the hair tools. They were giving a promotion voucher for the Auto Spin Curler at RM150 with the original price of RM380. You got to buy the curler at only RM230. (:

Both Yuh Jiun and Kah Mon managed to complete the 5-minute hair challenge and the curls turned out to be very pretty and natural on them.

It was Furfer and Ridley's turn after that. If you think that you can't curl your short hair with Auto Spin Curler, you are totally wrong. Ridley has short hair and she managed to complete her challenge within 5 minutes too.

From L-R: Furfer, Kah Mon, Yuh Jiun and Ridley. They were using my camera to take #wefie. Haha.

Here's the two videos to show you guys on how you can curl your short hair with Auto Spin Curler. (:

After everyone had completed the challenge, we were allowed to touch our hair for those whose hair are not fully curled. I went and touched up the curls and did the whole head as well. Thank you Caroline for helping me. (:

Caroline, the hair curler expert. :P

It took quite long for Caroline to finish up the whole head. Zzz.

The result was pretty impressive. I seriously in love with the natural curls that the Auto Spin Curler gave.

Before and after. 

Before I forgot, winners who managed to complete the 5-minute hair makeover challenge will walk away with the Auto Spin Curler sponsored by The Hair Depot! *jaw drop* Three winners would walk away with the awesome hair curler!!! So while waiting for results, here's what bloggers always do - taking selfie and wefie. :P

The Hair Depot announced the winners. To our surprise, there were 5 winners from this hair makeover challenge. 1 winner would be picked from each team who managed to complete the hair makeover challenge or those who can give the best curls by using the hair curler. I did not win the challenge in my team. Sarah won the challenge. Congrats Sarah! :D

Here's the winners who won the hair makeover challenge. (Caroline was not in the pic). Pic credits to Furfer.

Yuh Jiun and Kah Mon's team were lucky because both of them won the hair curler each since both of them completed the challenge within 5 minutes. Both of them were so lucky! Congrats to all the winners by the way. (:  All of us were given a Greenology organic hair care goodie bag worth RM186 from The Hair Depot. Yay! Thank you!

Online Shopping Experience with Mr Lens ❤

Since year 2009, I have been wearing contact lenses and I always go everywhere to search for bizarre and striking coloured contact lens to put on. I also tried several non-coloured lenses and there's a few brands that I am fond of. I can try on any brands of contact lenses provided their water content in the lens are high enough since I wear for long hours everyday.

Half a year ago, I was introduced to a online shop where they are selling authentic contact lens from various brands - MrLens. MrLens is a Swiss-based company that sells and ship major brands contact lenses all over the world. They provide many choices of color contact lenses conveniently, efficiently and free delivery within Klang Valley.

You do not have to buy your contact lenses in the shopping malls anymore. It definitely saves time and energy as you do not have to go through all the hassles. You can even save your time on the road while getting stucked on a jam to shopping malls just to stock up your contact lenses. In fact, some of the lenses that they have in stock have promotions too like Buy 5 Free 1 Box. It's a steal! :D

Few brands that they carry in the website such as Freshlook, Freshkon, Air Optix and Acuvue. 

There are various brands of contact lenses that you can choose from. You can also choose to get daily disposable lenses, monthly disposable lens, 3-month disposable lens, toric lens and bi-weekly lenses too. It's so convenient with MrLens. (: 

And today I would like to share with you my online shopping experience with MrLens. All you have to do is register yourself at and you are good to go. 

Since I have already registered mine,it will lead me to this page. 

You get to check your account information, orders, address and  lens pass too from this page. Normally, they will prefer us to put our company address instead of home as no one will be at home to pick up the products for working adults. 

Thanks to The Butterfly Project and MrLens, I was given the opportunity to select two boxes of coloured contact lens from Colorvue at any colour of my choice. However the selection of the power and colours of the contact lens are depending on the availability of the stock. (:

Since I have very high eye power, I can only select this Colourvue Starburst Grey. They have both of my eye power (which are different) and I choose to add to the cart after adding the quantity. (: Colorvue Starburst Grey is a 3-month disposable coloured lens. Since this is my first time wearing grey, I definitely feel excited as I do not have to stick to Asian brown hazel eyes. :P 

You can click "Continue Shopping" to add another Colourvue Starburst Grey of different power into your cart.

If you noticed the right hand corner, you will see a "Create Contact Lens Passport" box. You can choose to tick or un-tick it. The passport contains all important details about your contacts, prescription and solution. You can choose to either print the passport yourself or order this in the size of a credit card in plastic at CHF 3.90 (equivalent to RM13.97).

If you do not wish to create your own contact lens passport, you can proceed to check out and check the delivery information before you click "Continue".

As for the shipping fee, certain areas in Klang Valley are free of charge and some areas which are not circled in red will be charged. You can check out the areas in the website for more information. The photo below shows the areas which are circled in red are free of charge for shipping fee. You will then have the order information with all the details of your products. If you have a discount voucher, you can choose to type the code given and redeem it. 

After you clicked "Continue", Payment Information will appear on the next page. You can opt to change address if you want to. As for the payment method, there will be a lot of choices from credit card to PayPal and online banking too.

The next step is the "Confirmation" page where you will have to scan through the details you have filled in and the products that you have bought. Make sure you have entered the right details before you confirm your order.

Remember to tick the two boxes below on the same page before you confirm the order.

You are done and wait for your email on the confirmation of the order. You will receive the order within two days after the confirmation. Since I ordered the contact lens on Friday, I received the items on Monday!

Fast and efficient delivery. I received the items on Monday at the doorstep. They packed the contact lens and two lollipops in a ziplock bag together with the invoice and their brochure. (:

Previously I received an email from them that Colorvue Starburst Grey is no longer available, therefore they replaced with Pretty Hazel with the eye power that I want. I am happy because I get to try on colored lens as I am currently wearing the non-coloured contact lenses. (:

The colour of the contact lenses is pretty and caught my attention.

Before you open the seal, ensure that your hands are clean. Remember to wash your hands with soap and dry clean before you take the contact lenses out from the box.

Here's the closer look of the contact lens. Pretty Hazel from Colorvue is mesmerizing. 

Identify the inside-out of the contact lens before wearing it. If you wear it wrongly, be sure to take it out and wash with contact lens solution again (to avoid germs stick on the dry lens) before you put it in again.

Check which side of the contact lens is right to wear on.

You can see the drastic difference of my eyes after putting on the colored contact lens. My eyes are getting bolder and rounder.

My eyes are getting bolder and bigger with the lens.

Get ready to #selfie with your new look with Colorvue contact lens in Pretty Hazel! :D

I looked different with the Colorvue Pretty Hazel contact lens. I love this! :D

I find it so much convenient shopping with MrLens as I do not have to caught in bad traffic on my way to shopping malls just to get the preferred contact lenses I want. In fact, you can purchase your favourite brands of contact lens in the website because they seriously have various brands to suit the contact lens wearer. On the other hand, I can take up some of time at home on deciding which colour to choose without having salesgirl to stare at me while choosing colors / brands that I want. (When it comes to contact lens, I am very fussy as I prefer to check on the content / read the description of the certain brands). You also choose to purchase the same contact lens from the previous order if you run out of the contact lens as the previous orders will still remain in your account. It's so convenient right?

Do not hesitate anymore! Go and purchase now at their website! :D I am sure you won't regret! Happy scrolling! (: *wide grin*
