Sally Hansen Nail Polish Haul [Indonesia]

So I went to Indonesia for 2 months. That explained my “disappearance” in December and January. But don’t worry, I’m back.

In Indonesia, I bought some nail polishes. A set of 3 Sally Hansen nail polish and also their acrylic base coat, which I have been wanting to try for a while. I knew that some Guardian stores (a drugstore in Indonesia) sells Sally Hansen products but I only just found out that Sogo (a major department store) actually sells them. The price is significantly lower than Australia so I had to get a few.

The three Complete Salon Manicure polishes came in a box set for Rp. 290 000,- or about AUD $29.

I wore Wine Not and Golden Rule for Chinese New Year:

And I wore Cherry Up for Valentine’s Day:

I absolutely love the consistency and brush of this Sally Hansen line for doing an all-over colour since the brush is flat and wide. So if you’re not into flat, wide nail polish brushes, you might not be into this.

The line also claims that it is a base coat as well as a top coat. Though I always use a base coat and top coat still even when using the complete salon manicure.

I used this base coat underneath my valentine’s day nails and I’m not sure if it was the base coat or some outside-forces (i.e. I may have been working more with water, etc lately) but the staying power is not as great as my usual manicures. I will have to try it again and make up my mind later…

Have you gone nail polish shopping lately?

Way back to exercising (2): free “Daily Yoga” app

Welcome to another Sprinkle O’Rainbow post. Today I would like to share with you a free “Daily Yoga” app I used since about 3 weeks ago to kick start my “way back to exercise” mission.

If you missed my last post on health & fitness and if you want to know my history (injuries) and why I am on this mission then click here!

The app is literally called “Daily Yoga” and is available on both Android and Apple devices ranging from smartphones to tablets. I personally installed this on my Android Samsung S3 (smartphone) so I have it accessible at all times, wherever I am. That way I have no excuses not to at least do yoga once a day.

Daily Yoga

What you need to do to get this app is to download the main app: “Daily Yoga (All-In-One)“, and then you can download individual “plugins” which feeds into the plugin so in the end, all you need to open is the plugin app and you have all your modules accessible from there. The app also includes a few training programs so you can follow a schedule if you prefer that (they give you reminders on your phone to do the scheduled yoga session) though there’s only one free program which is the beginners program.

The plugins (which most are free) vary from beginner to advanced and are titled very clearly so you can choose which part of your body you would like to work on for the day. There’s also sequence plugins like “Yoga Sequence for Beginners“, “Sun Salutation“, “Yoga for Weight Loss” and “Yoga for Body Toning” where it doesn’t concentrate only on particular bodyparts. If you get days like me where I feel like I can’t be bothered standing up or I feel like exercising so I’d prefer standing up, they also have plugins for that.

Personally, I downloaded all the free plugins – because I’m a horder like that. Jokes. But really, it’s because I want to have the choice there depending on my mood that day but at the same time I don’t want to spend money.

The concept of using this app is very simple. Just spend 10-15 minutes of your day to do Yoga. No excuses right? everyone has a 15minute break in their day? Also doing these really wakes me up in the calmest but fastest way in the morning. So I like to do it just after I wake up in the morning next to my bed. Now I really have no excuse not to do it.

Though I am not really a beginner in Yoga, I started by doing the beginner program which went for 2 weeks. There is one session everyday with a 2 day break in the middle. I thought this would be a good light start to ease myself back into exercising. I loved it! About half of the sessions went for 10 minutes and the other half went for 15 minutes each. It wakes me up, loosens me up and gets my body moving in the morning. Oh and a tip – you can change the scheduled times for your sessions in the program to match your desired schedule.

This is definitely not enough of  an exercise but in my opinion, it’s a great start nonetheless. Plus, it’s FREE!
