My V-Day 2018 Plans

Leave a comment Standard

It’s LOVE month and YES, I am already planning for a perfect way to celebrate Valentine.  It doesn’t have to be on that day as I know that it would be a rush ( I go home before 8pm and I had to wake up early to do some paperworks in school for the following day 😦 )  I actually reserved online for a buffet dinner at Vikings SM Marikina on the 14th but hubby was able to convince me to cancel it.  So, I just thought of buying simple takeout foods and cake for family dinner.

Instead of spending it in Vikings, I thought of just booking a one-bedroom suite in The Linden Suites on February 16, 2018 since it’s a looooooong weekend that day (Chinese New Year).  Spending it with hubby is romantic, but spending the LOVE month with the kiddos will be sweeter.

So, how can you surprise your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day (or even that week)?

  1.  Ordering food is acceptable especially if both of you are so busy, but if you have the time, your partner will appreciate it if you will be the one to personally prepare it for him/her.  If you have the time, though, a romantic dinner in a restaurant would be cool.

2.  A movie date sounds good also 🙂 (I will try to squeeze some time with hubby on                 the 14th, probably a post Valentine movie date will be possible.

3.  A good massage or spa treatment would also be sweet.  Soulscape Spa offers a                     special treat to couples this LOVE month.  For 1.5 hours, you and your other half                 can enjoy their signature Anti-Stress massage plus a bonus 30 minute foot reflex                 for only P1430.00.

4.  Hit the gym/fitness center with your special someone.  Since Feb, 16 is a holiday, I               will see if I can bring hubby to Fitness First in the morning, before we go to The                   Linden Suites in the afternoon.

5.  If you can afford, you may purchase something special for your  special someone.              In my case, my gift for him is QUALITY TIME not only for him but for our kids.

Whatever present or no matter how you celebrate the V day with your special someone, it’s your present that matters and how you were able to make him/her feel that he/she is special.

Mom and Daughter’s Spa Date @ Soulscape Marcos Highway

Leave a comment Standard

Who says that only adults need a break from the busy schedule?  Have you thought that kids deserve a destressing session too?  Yes, like us– they also get exhausted from the activities in school and just like the way we wanted to treat ourselves, they also deserve a pampering session at the spa.   A week prior my “spa day” , my daughter was not feeling well and after the stressful exams she had, I thought it was the perfect time for her to relax and have a Kiddie massage.    In this post, I will share about our mother and daughter bonding last Friday @ Soulscape Spa (Marcos Highway branch).

The moment that we have reached the reception and were greeted by the gorgeous staff (Ella and Rose), I can feel Shane’s excitement.  She used to accompany me in my destressing sessions, but now it was the time for her to destress.  While they were preparing our VIP family room, we were given a glass of lukewarm water and a cup of hot tea.

It’s good to know that it was SHINE, who was assigned to us again.  I felt comfortable with her in my last treatment, and as what I have expected, she made us feel comfortable.  She led us to the footwash area where Shane’s feet were washed.

After the soothing footwash, we were escorted to our VIP Family room.  It has 3 single beds and has its own bathroom.  As usual, I loved the ambiance and the privacy that we had in the room.   Before the treatment, I enjoyed few minutes first by just taking selfies before I wear that black silk Soulscape robe.

Everything that you need is already there in the bathroom imcluding cotton buds, handwash and moutwash so I felt really comfortable and at home 🙂  After prepping up, I had the Minty Peppermint Anti-Dandruff Hair Treatment first followed by the Coffee Body Scrub and Collagen Face Mask.  In my previous post, I have mentioned about the benefits of Collagen Face Mask, that’s why I always include this in my beauty routine.

Coffee Body Scrub

Because summer is fast approaching, part of my preparation is having a flawless skin, so I have included this in my beauty routine too.  I decided to try the Coffee Body Scrub because aside from the fact that I was curious, I am also a coffee lover.  No wonder that during the treatment I was awake because of its aroma.  It has the same effect as the Kojic Salt Scrub– Aside from being a stimulant and anti-oxidant, it also helps in the blood circulation, exfoliates, smoothen,  and gives a youthful glow to the skin.  After the treatment, I enjoyed the hot shower and when I came out of the bathroom, Shane was already having her Kiddie massage.  (I totally forgot to go to the Sauna room because I didn’t want to miss Shane’s Kiddie massage).  

 

After our treatment, Shane felt better and energized and I felt refreshed and rejuvenated.  It was actually one of the best bonding that we had aside from eating and swimming.  I recommend that you should try this too!

Younger Look with Collagen Facial Mask

Leave a comment Standard

Collagen is known as an anti-aging agent.  The good news is that it is available in beauty shops, department store and grocery stores.  You can have it your beauty cream or moisturizer or even include it in your drinks.  Yes, we couln’t avoid age spots and wrinkles, but we can do something to look younger.

One way of doing that is also by destressing, and I have my twice per month session in Soulscape Spa Marcos Highway, Cainta, Rizal.   Part of my beauty routine is not only the body scrub– I also included the Collagen facial mask.  Here are the benefits that you will get from this treatment:

1.  It reduces age lines and wrinkles.

2.  It reduces stretch marks and even out your skin tone.

3.  It reduces joint pains.

4.  It strengthens your nails and teeth.

5.  It improves not only your skin, but also your hair.

6.  It helps detox your body.

 

After the Collagen Facial Mask, I had a different glow.  It won’t be evident yet because I only had my first session last week, but I intend to have it twice per month to achieve the youthful glow this coming summer.  You will see whatever improvement I have with my skin as I regularly publish my photos in my social media accounts.

My Christmas To Do List 2017

Leave a comment Standard

It’s more than a week before Christmas and I can feel the Christmas rush.  To keep myself organized for the holidays, I’ve created my To Do List for Christmas 2017.

box blank1.  Shop for Christmas presents 

Though I have already bought some presents for my family, I haven’t completed the list.  I would like to give something also for my 80 students 🙂

box blank2.  Achieve the Christmas Glow for the Christmas Party

This is the perfect time to have a break from all the stress and it’s time to pamper myself.  After attending my students’ Christmas Party on the 20th, I will head to Soulscape Spa & Wellness Lounge in Marcos Highway, Cainta for destressing session to achieve my Christmas glow.  (A separate article will be posted about this soon!)  My nails will be taken cared of Nailaholics Metro East Branch for my red and green pedicure.

box blank3.  Buy the rest of the food for Christmas Eve and Christmas day in the grocery.  

I already have bought some but I haven’t completed it yet.  This afternoon, I might be able to complete it.  I will design low-calorie meals if that is possible, hehe 🙂

box blank4.  Shop for green shirts/dress for our family attire on Christmas Eve

We couldn’t wear red because our curtains are already red.  Green will be a good match for red for the colors of Christmas.

box blank5.  Organize and decorate our home for the upcoming Christmas celebration.

We already set up the Christmas tree loaded with ornaments and garlands.  We have also purchased the red curtains, but few things are still missing.  Let me have few days to do something about this.

box blank5.  Reward myself with a camera and powerbank for my blogging needs.

I will be needing those for my press trip to Baguio after Christmas for quality photos and uninterrupted posting through social media accounts.  I have already ordered a powerbank through Zalora and I am just waiting for it to be shipped.  As for the camera, i will see if I can get one (I will try to use the Home Credit).

box blank6.  Bond with my family on Christmas Day 🙂

I’m thinking if we will watch a movie or have another activity, but definitely I do not want to have a boring Christmas.

These are just few of the things I have in mind.  I will update this just in case I forgot something.  HAPPY HOLIDAYS, dear readers and may you be filled with blessings for the upcoming year!

Note:  There will be a post about the accomplished checklist.  Watch out for this soon!
