Pedaling On the Two-wheel

Nice view right? Taken with my iPhone camera of this panorama view of Lake Ontario at Ashbridge's Bay Park.  My friend lives downtown Toronto and we went biking yesterday afternoon.  I don't normally ride a bike for more than an hour and as expected, my thighs and butt are aching now.  Frankly the ride was great, definitely would go again some other day.

Excessive eating

I had lunch today with some friends at an all-you-can-eat Japanese food restaurant.  I ate so much that I feel like I committed a deadly sin - gluttony.  We ate at 'Matsuda', a restaurant in a plaza at the corner of Middlefield and Steeles.  For a decent price $14, I definitely over-ate.  It's been well over 5 hours since we had lunch, my stomach is still bloated and I feel nauseous.
Whenever I go to an AYCE restaurant, my friends and I have a bad habit of saving an empty stomach.  It's a bad habit because when we order, we feel so hungry that we order more than we can actually eat.

Does that happen to you? Ordering more than you can eat?

Review: BioSilk Silk Therapy

This Biosilk product has been an item I've been using on and off for the past 8 or 9 years.  I'm only on my third bottle but that's because a dime-size amount is enough for my medium-length hair.      

The scent:  A chemical floral scent.  Straight from the bottle I can smell the scent of rubbing alcohol.

Consistency:  Serum.

Application:  I prefer to wash my hair prior to using this product.  I have tried it on dry hair but personally, I find it works best with wet hair.  I use roughly a dime-size amount, rub it between my hands and start applying it on the hair ends and work my way up to the roots.

Packaging:  Comes in a plastic bottle and has a press-to-open lid dispenser.

What it claims:  "BioSilk Silk Therapy is a weightless, leave-in silk replenishing and reconstructing treatment to repair, smooth and protect all hair types."

Thoughts / Results:
Personally, I love this product.  I've been switching back and forth with my LUSH Revive and Balance hair conditioner.  The alternating use of both products is working so well with my hair.  I don't have frizzy or dry end issues since switching back to using this serum.  However, in the past I have experienced a point where my hair got used to this product and it didn't work as well.  But after I stopped using it for a good year or so, I jumped back on the wagon and it's now working so well with my hair.  I don't feel the split or dry ends.  My hair doesn't annoyingly get into knots at the ends.

I definitely feel that this product is lightweight.  It doesn't way down my hair like the LUSH R and B hair conditioner does, when I use too much of it.  My hair feels smooth and soft, and it leaves a nice healthy shine.

This product does have a scent to it as indicated in the ingredients, the manufacturer added perfume in the product.  Personally, I don't mind the product but others who are sensitive to scents may find it strong.  However the smell does evaporate over 2 to 3 hours.

Cost: $49.50 CAD for 12 fl oz or 350 mL @Grand Treasures (Can be found in Canadian Costco - ~$29.95 for 250mL)

Product: BioSilk Silk Therapy
Rating: 4.5 / 5
