Holistic Retreat : Zenyu Eco Spa

I’ve been in search for an alternative spa center to escape, unwind and rejuvenate for months now. Not much had appeal to me until fellow blogger, Ia of IaAdamLim, invited me for an afternoon of complete healing at one of the first eco-friendly day spas in the Philippines.

Nestled deep in the heart of Metro Manila, at the 3rd floor of Manila Ocean Park complex, the Philippines’ first state-of-the-art Oceanarium, open water marine habitat, boutique mall and function facilities at the back of the Quirino Grandstand. Zenyu Eco Spa is right next to Hotel H2O, the Philippines’ first aquarium-themed chic urban getaway. Continue reading

Digital Perm at BeautyBrick

Got a new look and I’m lovin’ it.

I was itching to go to the salon earlier this week. It’s been ages since I’ve last visited Freshaire in Festival Mall, Alabang.

For years, I vouch for their best service and cheap rates. Although I have been blessed with fine and straight hair, I pay them a visit occasionally for straightening with cellophane. Cheaper than hair rebonding with the same result.

Now, I don’t have any idea on what to do with my hair since I just had a trim about two months ago. As to what service to avail for my hair, I have yet to decide until I encountered the magic word “digi perm“. Huh?!

Love, Peace and Shoes

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend but for women of a certain age, nothing beats a new pair of heels. For stressful days and restless nights, beyond working hard, shopping is the ultimate  retail therapy. It can heal your broken heart, it takes you to places and sometimes, it makes you wild and crazy.

Be Mouthacular with Listerine

Returning home from our holiday trip in Thailand, it was a refreshing surprise that someone sent us a gift.

Wrapped in a tiffany blue box are vanilla and mint cupcakes by Sonja’s and the New flavor from Listerine, Vanilla Mint, Mouthwash has never tasted this good!

I can’t wait to have my hands on the delicious cupcakes. It was different from my comfort load of chocolate flavored cupcakes but still they were the softest and yummiest in town. Continue reading

Miles for Smiles : Run for Cleft Care

Earlier today, we ran for a cause – to make a child smile. It does take time, sweat and total commitment to make it to the finish line. I’m supposed to run for 3k but eventually got lost along the way and instead finished a 5k leg. That was an interesting event turn out.

It was nice seeing old faces and meeting new ones. The most rewarding thing of all, is seeing how excited those kids beneficiaries are. Kudos to Noordhoff Craniofacial Foundation Philippines, Inc. (NCFPI) for making it possible and reaching out to share the news about free comprehensive cleft care. Now, every children with “bingot” or cleft palates and craniofacial abnormalities can smile for a brighter future.
