Put on some undiluted Lagoon Blue over turquoise bangs and pink underlayers, and got this: fluorescent blue bangs and sort of violet underlayers. The ombre is subtle, but because the color is so vibrant it’s apparent too. Went to a store opening yesterday and my friend Kara said the color was so… “glowy”. I thought that was pretty cool. I’m glad I’m back to dark and pigmented, pastel is high maintenance so it’s nice to relax about hair color issues for a while!

Save While Shopping at Nordstrom with Promo Codes

*sponsored post

I’m a total cheapskate when it comes to online shopping (hello, DIY blog) so I’m pretty excited about giving my readers a chance to be like me (save big, not be a cheapskate. Although you could be both and proud, like yours truly).

tella-novella asked: Hey there. I recently bleached my hair and it came out a dark orange color. I'm wondering if I can tone it as it is, or is dark orange to dark for a toner to affect it?

Hello! Dark orange is too dark for toner. Most people recommend getting hair to at least a brassy blonde stage before toning.

Commercial toners like the ones sold by Manic Panic and Directions, etc will only work on already light (but brassy) hair.

Anonymous asked: Hi Miss Jad, I am a very big fan of yours, like I'm at the majority of your gigs, got your CDs, and go lesbo always (just ignore that, It's that girly thing when you saw your idol then you just scream at the top of your lungs), and seeing you at Kuya Maki's house, I'm like is she for real? like oh my god. But, my question is, where do you buy polymer clays, Ms. Jad? :)) thank you so much. Looking forward for your response.

Hello, you’re awesome. But wait, who are you? :D

I’ve been asked this before :) I buy my polymer clay from Angeluz Creatives, which no longer seems to be operating on facebok. I know that the craft shop in Gmall sells polymer clay, though. If I can’t find any polymer clay in davao, I just order it online, there’s always someone selling it on instagram or olx.ph or ebay.

Ambush present from mom last night because I don’t buy girly heels. Omg, these are some gorgeous mules. I have the best Mom ever.

Anonymous asked: HM is the shipping fee from taobao basically?

I don’t order directly from taobao, I use an agent. You pay 2 shipping fees. One to ship from the china merchant to your agent, and one to ship from the agent to you. You can see the in-china shipping fee under the taobao item title. The agent shipping fee is calculated by your agent. For about 1-2kg worth of items shipped from the capital region of the Philippines to my region, it’s around P400-500, especially if it’s bulky like shoes.

Based on experience, most in-china shipping is 5-10 RMB per item. Agent shipping depends on your country/region/agent.

DIY Comic Book “Sound Effect” Plush: Scrap Felt and Yarn Project

Hello, here’s a DIY post from me in what seems like forever. These photos have been sitting in my computer for a really long time and I feel bad that I never got around to posting them, so even though I’m super busy I’m forcing myself to sit down and write a blog post because I’ll never get around to it if I keep putting it off! (Lol, look at me fighting procrastination with procrastination. This terrible combination will never end well, Jad. Never.)

I made this little comic book plush because I have bags of scrap yarn lying around as well as random bits of felt that I can’t use for bigger projects. I wanted to use up my scrap orange and yellow felt without having to resort to the usual suggestions like a bowl for buttons or a coaster or a pincushion. Can’t I recycle and be pop-culture relevant at the same time? *shakes fist

ANYHOO. Here’s what you need:

Anonymous asked: Hello! I would like to dye my hair purple over my medium/ light brown hair. I would not be using bleach. Would this work? What hair dye would you recommend? This would also be my first time dyeing my hair a "unnatural" or "rainbow type" color. Thanks!

People give Directions Plum good reviews (it’s very pigmented and it shows well on unbleached hair). I’ve used it myself. It’s a kind of brownish purple, so google picture reviews first to see if it’s for you.

Anonymous asked: Hi Jad! From what Taobao Store do you buy your shoes from? Thanks

I think it was Queen City for the creepers, but I forgot what store I got the boots from (they’re in Engrish so I forget them quickly). But there are so many clones of each store, I’m sure you won’t have a hard time finding similar ones for the kind of shoes you want to buy. :)

Couldn’t sleep so I wrote a new song under my solo project name, Wayward Comet. For people who go through the motions, like clockwork.

this m▲chine

Every day we open our eyes
every day we take a breath
are you just a gear in the wheel
is this just a rattling cage

Funny how life kicks you in the gut
Funny how you can’t look me in the eye
When everything hangs in the balance of us
This Machine of you and I
You and I

Oh this machine of you and I
Oil the words and try
not to break down on me
Inside of this machine

Cos we owe it to ourselves
to fix the pieces
And we, we can never stop
We can never sleep
inside of this

Cos we owe it to ourselves
to fix the pieces
And we, we can never stop
We can never sleep
inside of this machine

{we can never sleep
inside of this)
(every day we open our eyes
every day we take a breath)

machine of you and I
machine of you and I

machine of you and I

machine of you and I

Did the soundtrack for this Davao-based indie film. Still working on other bits of the score for the other scenes. :D
