Spa Day!

Every once in a while, it’s nice to treat ourselves to a relaxing body massage in order to let some of the tension go. After all, you’ve worked hard for months on end and it doesn’t matter whether you’re at home or at work. Stress is always there. And some studies show that the most common culprit in illnesses we contract is due to stress. Not surprising considering that we live in a fast paced world where everything needs to be completed in a snap.

So for this special treat, I decided to take up my good friend and beauty blogger, Alice’s, invitation to try out this hot new spa which happens to be near me. Jasmine’s Therapeutic Spa, is equipped with the most basic commodities a spa requires and is specially thought of to bring a relaxing feeling for us hardworkers. With the team ready to serve tea, it’s a wonderful experience indeed.

The masseuse, being specially screened and trained in some of the most expensive spas in the metro, pride themselves with years of experience and a license to boot! So you know you are in good and professional hands.

My only take in this experience is that the visit could have been made more memorable with wider tea options. Perhaps Lavander or Chamomile to induce relaxation before or after the massage sessions. Light snacks as well such as small sandwiches would definitely make the visit well worth it!

All in all, the visit is worth the hour’s travel and the weeks of tension released. Would I go back? Definitely! Maybe for a ventusa session next time. ­čÖé

Fight Heat Stroke in 3 Simple Ways

The hot and dry season is back in the Philippines so┬átogether with the heatwaves, you need to take note of ways to prevent heat stroke which is one of the top reasons of fatality listed for deaths that occur during the driest parts of the year.┬áSince there are a number of ways to fight off the heat during the dry season which we can easily lose track of, I’ve narrowed the list down to the three most important ones.

Drink Plenty of Water.┬áI cannot stress enough how important it is for us to drink plenty of water. You’ll find this in all available blogs, reminders, news articles, etc. and they are there for a reason. Our body is made up of 70% water. And this water is what we lose when we sweat so to avoid dehydration which can lead to any number of complications that can be fatal. So drink, drink, drink your water is what I would say!

Always bring an umbrella. An umbrella is not just used to fight off rain, it also serves as your very own shade wherever you go so always, always bring an umbrella with you wherever you go. And if you are the type that tends to have an aversion against bringing lots of things, then the small fold-able umbrellas can be of better use to you. You can pick any fold-able umbrella up at any grocery or specialty stores at very good prices, much like darbuka at guitarcenter.com.

Bring your very own fan.┬áNo matter where you go, you’ll always have that moment when you will have to stand in a location with no air-conditioning. Or worse, with no breeze but the hot humid weather. So you only need to stand for a full two minutes and you’ll be sweating from head to toe. Gross, right? Absolutely! So what can you bring which can help you cool down a bit? That’s right! Your own handy-dandy, fan! A fan is very small and you only need a very small space to fit it in your bag. So when you can, always have fan which you can bring everywhere you go.

So there you have it! All you need to remember to bring with you anywhere you go narrowed down to three easy to remember tips!

Cheers!

Well George has been there. About to pop Tanya a big question but hesitates. Hun, you gotta watch Swish’s new video to find out how George boosts his confidence and #SayItWithSwish

Readily available at your local Mercury Drug Store, Watson’s, Super Store, and in most groceries, Swish can be bought at P105 per 10ml travel handy bottle. I found Swish to be one of the best breath sprays that not only freshens breath but kills the bacteria that brushing doesn’t!

Go ahead. Give it a go and let me know what you think.
