STYLE| Happiness

Hey hey hey!!! So how was your Christmas? I bet all of you had fun and very happy during the Holidays. :) 

I do understand though that there are times in our lives when we feel so down that it comes to a point where being happy can already be a tricky task. Ito yung tinatawag na panahon ng sumpong, wala sa mood o basta wala ka lang gana sa mga nangyayari sa buhay mo. Pero since Chrismas Season ngayon... dapat lagi tayong masaya ok!

We all have our similarities and differences since we are created differently. Yes, we can react similarly to different situations or we can react differently to similar situations. But whichever way we put it, did you know that being happy really depends on what affects our mind and being. ( Sabi nga ni hubz, "it's all in the mind" ) 

Don’t worry though when you feel unhappy. It’s a natural feeling. What’s important is you are able to realize the things that’s causing your unhappiness and being able to cope up with it and picking up the pieces. Smile! 


“ Be happy not because everything is good, but because you can see the good in everything”

STYLE | Burst of Colors

Are you staring blankly in your closet full of clothes and yet you are still stucked for ideas on what to wear during the holidays? You are not alone!!! Bakit kaya ganito tayong mga girls ano… No matter how siksik with clothes our closet are, we still blurt out that we have nothing to wear. Di ko naman pwedeng masabing arte –arte lang kasi subok naman talagang lahat tayong girls eh nakaka –experience ng ganito.
So first things first. Saan kaba pupunta? Take into consideration the ambiance and the temperature of the place that you are going.  Baka naman kasi magsuot ka ng makapal tapos Al Fresco naman pala ang pupuntahan mo. Patay tayo jan… hahaha! Pero carry lang yan. Lahat naman napag -aaralan.
If you are going to a lunch function, you could wear something similar to what I wore in this post. Syempre pag mga ganyang handaan, gusto natin always comfortable diba.  That’s why I’m loving this dress from GRAPHIC MONKEY – the dress is just perfect when you want to keep cool but still feel dressed up. I matched it with a criss-crossed heels to create a gorgeous look. Don’t forget to bring in some blazer just incase the party would get stretched towards the evening  :-)

STYLE | Smart Casual

Have you ever been invited to an event or an occasion for instance where in no dress code was ever mentioned. It’s kind of freaking me out pag ganyan. Nakaka freak out naman talaga! 
Ofcourse, so many things are popping up in my mind. You might get over-dressed or underdressed kasi. Nakakabaliw mag-isip ng kung anu-ano. Pero mas okay na yung maging safe than sorry.

Pagoda Philippines! 

That's what I always blurt out everytime my body feels exhausted and screams for some massage. But since my schedule is busy, deadma to the max even though I feel some muscle pains already. Pero sabi nga ng matatanda, sa huli ang singil ng lahat. True enough, one day I woke up na lang na hindi na comfortable in moving my shoulders. Seriously, hindi ko na maitaas and ma- straighten up yung arms ko. Hala! Tumatanda at kumukunat na ba talaga ako or hindi kaya frozen shoulders na ito? Parang mas gusto ko na yung kumukunat at tumatanda instead of dun sa frozen shoulders dahil magagastusan pa yata ako sa pagpapa- doctor ko. Sana nagpakasarap na lang ako magpa- massage ng magpamassage dati pa diba. Hays!) 

But hey, do you know the kind of feeling na parang may light bulb that lighted up infront of you kasi you remembered something? That's what I felt when I suddenly remembered that I have a Premium pass from Bioessence which I got from an event. From the pass, you can get to choose between a  beauty break facial or a stress relief back massage.  

Actually, naremember ko lang na meron nga pala akong premium pass super late in the afternoon of Oct 31 na so I am not sure if they could accommodate me pa when I tried to call for a schedule. (I really crossed my fingers 'cause if not, its going to be hard for me to inject it in my sched again- Naks! Akala mo naman kung sino at punong-puno ang schedule talaga... haha! feelingera! ).

Lucky enough, the nearest branch where I am that time, (Bioessence, Las Pinas -Along Alabang -Zapote road) was able to accommodate me. 
I chose to avail and try their back massage----
(Feeling ko nagpa-party na ang mga muscles ko upon knowing na makakapagpa- massage na ako after 52 years! Pati ang wallet ko nagpaparty na din kasi libre itooooo :)  hihi! )

So I was greeted by their consultants and the branch manager, Ms Aida. Lahat sila mabait and accomodating, Promise! (This is actually one aspect that I am looking for in a spa). Diba nga, kaya ka nga nagpapa- spa kasi gusto mong ma-relax. Mas lalong masarap ma-relax if the ambiance, the people and staff are all accommodating. 

So upon their welcome and the registration of my info etc. etc..., I was asked to sit down for awhile while waiting for the assigned therapist. 
So I took advantage of taking some snap shots of the branch na. 

 This branch is cozy enough to set once mood to relaxation. 

Hallway going to the massage area.
Instead of the back massage, they extended to me a whole body swedish massage na. 
[ ang saya -saya hahahay! Ang swerte ko talaga diba :-) ] 
After the massage, I was offered a tea or coffee. 
I opted for tea kasi baka di na naman ako makatulog. Insomnia forever... alam nyo yan!!  

Close up photo of the massage room
(Actually, gusto ko sanang magpa-picture habang mina-massage ako kaso pinag-isipan ko na din ng bongga. Sabi ko sa sarili ko na 'wag na lang kasi baka ito pa ang maging  dahilan ng tuluyang pagkasaira ng pagba-blog ko.... nagsisimula pa nga lang eh.... kaya picture na lang muna ng massage room ang ma- she-share ko sainyo.) 

Yung totoo, I just had the most relaxing massage in my life. 
I'm not exaggerating! We all know that lahat naman ng massage nakaka relax, but this one is different. (Naks, parang boylet lang. Haha!) 
There's something in their strokes that got me super relaxed and made me feel na parang hindi lang 1-hour yung session ko.(parang 3 hours yata sa sobrang sarap ~~~ 
You guys have to try it out para naman ma experience nyo din. 
Baka sabihin nyo kasi ang sinungaling ko eh. hehe! ) 

They have the most affordable packages that you can give as a gift too. They are offering services such as Facial, Spa Services, Massage, Dermatological concerns and Slimming. Hayaan nyo, pipilitin kong i-try isa-isa ang services nila para makwentuhan ko kayo sa procedures and everything. [Sana may pa-try sila ulittttttt ano! (ambisyosa lang masyadowww, malay nyo!)] 

Pero on a serious note, with the choices that you have, alam kong it's going to be a SUPER wonderful present that you can  give to your friends, to your siblings, to your mom, to your dad, to your boyfriend, to your asawa or reward mo na din sa sarili mo. Oh, pwede din palang gamiting gift para pampalakas sa mga mother in law nyo or mga mother in law to be diba. Promise, tignan nyo, effective yan talaga :) 

Na convince ko ba kayo? Try nyo na din.
