New Year. New Me?

January had been a month full of changes. For some it begins with drafting their New Year’s Resolutions just like what they do every passing year. It spans from health goals, to fitness goals, goals to take up further studies or goals to find your soulmate in this busy and heartless world.

But for me, it’s just another year. Another new leaf on my book which I will turn as another year shall pass. It isn’t melodramatic nor am I pessimistic. Maybe I am just a realist. I guess I got tired of hoping every year that something big would come my way and change my life in ways I would not have expected. Because, truth be told nothing happens by accident. Whatever happens to you now has long been coming due to a series of your past actions and thoughts.

Your Desire SkinCare and Spa Opens in QC

I have always been on the look out for awesome deals with regards to items and services which interests me. Lately I have been quite enamored with online shopping and great deals which can be bought at a fraction of the original cost yet the service rendered would be at par as their regular priced services.

One of my officemates recently availed of a great deal from a nearby salon and it’s results were quite astounding since it gave her hair the volume and the shine that she has been pining for quite some time now. I was curious as to where this salon is located so she advised me to check out the great deals which can be readily bought from Metrodeal which can give you such a good value for your money.

Mother’s Day 2017: Luto ni Nanay sa Salu

It’s been two weeks since we celebrated Mother’s Day with my Lola and my Mom and what better way to give tribute to the 2 women who raised us and toiled all these years just to ensure to give us a good future than to treat them out for lunch and give them tokens of our appreciation to them.

With that said, just a couple of weeks back I got invited to a sit down lunch at Salu Restaurant in the confines of Tomas Morato and since it was near our place of residency after mass we went straight there to the place to celebrate Mother’s Day as well.

It’s back to the basics with Bao on the Block :)

It’s been more than 2 weeks already since I last updated my blog. Sorry for the lack of posts and updates it’s just that I have been running around like a headless chicken on the block with my list of things to do. For the past 2 weeks a lot has already transpired with a lot of new joints that I discovered to trekking a new mountain with my officemates and dipping ourselves in the icy cold pristine crystal clear waters of the Majayjay Falls to the Christening of my officemates baby girl to staying in at a Hotel during the recently concluded All Soul’s Day. But of course that’s for another story.

For this entry, I would like to highlight my most recent food discovery along the confines of Tomas Morato wherein a lot of mom and pop joints seem to proliferate the area but only a few stand out for me. 🙂

Long Locks that Shine at the GlamSquad Salon

It has been a busy roller coaster ride of events for me the past few weeks juggling a couple of activities all at the same time but it was okay I guess what better time to learn time management than now right?  

But of course as ladies we should all learn to take a breather sometimes and unwind, rest and relax ourselves to brace ourselves for another busy week ahead. 🙂 So when I got an invite from Mommy Lariza of MWAH I automatically penciled it in my planner and looked forward to this pampering session at the end of the week. However, since it was a Friday payday that night I wasn’t able to make it in time and ended up getting there after most of them was done and all dolled up so in my resolve to make it early next time I booked myself up for an appointment with them on that same weekend and decided to come in a hour early so as to avoid the traffic. 🙂 Good thing it was a Sunday and due to the weather conditions that day not a lot of people were booked that day so I was easily prioritized after just a few minutes of waiting 🙂 Sometimes it pays to be early! 🙂

So here goes my GlamSquad adventure! 🙂

Upon entering the place I was honestly attracted to their creative interiors since it wasn’t just like your ordinary salon but it was like one from the movies wherein celebrities get all styled and dolled up in their own personal dressing rooms.
