I got so busy that I found myself so caught up in the challenge which resulted for me to neglect and take care of some other important parts of my body like my hair. I'm just glad na hindi pa din ako pinapabayaan ng pagkakataon because I got to receive an invite from V&M Naturals for a hair spa day experience at the Benibana Beauty Hub three weeks ago. This invite came in shortly a few days after my challenge has ended and it just came right on time since I also have an event at the nearby area on the same date of the spa day, so sakto talaga.
