Aaina Beauty Salon- Threading

I finally tried threading my eyebrows! After talking about it over the weekend with some gfs, my girl recommended Aaina in Kent, I decided to stop by on the way home. The salon itself is a decent size with 3 chairs for threading. I didn't get a chance to see the rest of the salon, but there are probably private rooms for waxing, facials and other services. There is a sign up sheet when you first walk in and it was a little bit before I was seen. Based off the Yelp reviews, it can get fairly busy. I didn't catch the name of the gal that was working on me, but she was nice and asked me what I wanted done. I told her just my brows. What I should have specified is how thick I wanted them to be. I told her I shape and clean them up. She quickly went to work by first trimming the edges before threading. This is much painless than waxing, but it isn't ask quick. I did have to hold my lid taut by placing obe hand on my forehead and the other on part of my lid. I was done in about 10 minutes. They were a little on the thin side, but I liked how clean they looked and there was no redness or irritation. What did cause some reaction was the gel she applied after - I have sensitive skin and can react to scented items. Will I go back? Yes! Like I said, I'll be more specific about how thick I want my brows. Thin brows on a round face can make it look even more round. I prefer to have a more prominent brow to compliment my face.

-No hot wax that can irritate
-Very clean removal
-Fairly quick

-Near where I live

-Can hurt when the thread runs over your skin repeatedly

-Can get busy; be prepared to wait
-A bit if a drive for my Seattle folks (Located in Kent)

$5 Yup! Cheap!

Would I recommend to a friend?
Yes! I'll go back in a month or 2 when I have more growth and take one of my good friends.

Do you thread? What do you like versus waxing or tweezing? I'm envious of gals with the perfect brows!

Skin Food Lettuce & Cucumber Water Essence Mask Sheet

Snowed in...again. What else to do? Beautify! I attempted to use some styling tools on my short hair without success. :/ Just not long enough yet! My gf gave me a Skin Food mask sheet a few weeks back & I'm now getting around to using it. Thanks again Carol! :)

-Smells wonderful!
-Easy to use
-Travels well

-Available only online

Cost: About $4 each. Most online sellers on eBay sell them in multiples of 3-4.

Would I recommend this to a friend? Yes! I used to use sheet masks more often, but haven't bought any new ones in awhile. I still have so much other prod to use until I can indulge in more of these!

Longing for luscious locks!

I am happy that I donated my hair to Locks of Love over the summer. Now, I am ready to get my flowing hair back and fast please. :/ I've been having so many moments where I don't feel feminine because of the length of my hair. Bah! Well, I am going to try these for a month and hope they work. Miracle pills. LOL! We shall see. This is also my current length of hair. It IS growing, but not fast enough for me. Any tips on products to help aid in hair growth?

MOTN Nail night! Dior Purple Candy & Finger Paints Twisted

Manicure of the night! I was hard on my nails over the weekend and chipped my nails, so I had to do them again. ;) Therapy! I'll probably do my nails again in a few days. Here is another picture of my mani. You can see the flakies a little bit better!

And another one - Finger Paints Special Effects in Twisted

Because I needed this one. Finger Paints Special Effects in Twisted. Might have to do nail night tonight! I can't believe I didn't pick this one up earlier with Asylum, Mötley and Flecked. I opted not to get Flashy based off Jen's review that it is similar to Essie's Luxeffects Shine of the Times (I already snagged that!). Check out Jen's reviews ( and stay tuned for my next MOTW with Twisted.
