My Lucky Friday the 13th

 

Where I’m from, Friday the thirteenth is believed to be an ominous day where luck would have been nonexistent. Unlucky for some. But today, I am considering myself to be very lucky with the series of fortunate events that unfolded in the last 12 hours.

To be honest, the day didn’t really start great. Rather getting stranded for an hour and a half would be crazy. Almost missing an important event was disappointing, but everything changed when assertiveness came into play. I wanted, 100%, to be part of the women’s talk featuring Nia Taduran, who I watch every afternoon on TV at Wanted Sa Radyo. And of course, participate in the Makeup Workshop featuring celebrity makeup artist, Cezar Layno. So although I missed the first part of the session, I was able to push for participation on the workshop which was exactly what I was aiming for. (Thanks boss Ahyo for the opportunity!).

And thank God, I did. Not only was I motivated to continue with my passion for makeup, I also met these awesome folks who work to make work fun! Imagine that. đŸ™‚

And so through meeting these brilliant people, I also got the chance to be a co-writer for the company blog! Fantastic, isn’t it?

This day is definitely one of the best I’ve had in a while and all on a Friday the thirteenth. Who would’ve thought?!

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. đŸ™‚

Halloween Nail Idea 2016

I know the Halloween’s just ended just like that but it’s been a helluva lot of fun but I sill wanted to show what Halloween inspired nail I chose for this occasion.

nail-art

Not bad I think for a first time try. Enjoy real money casino guide and find the best real money casino! Matte plus gradient plus freehand. I know I’ve a lot to work on my gradient style just that I’m not big on pastels that we see most of the time during  engine searches and so I opted for the darker versions. đŸ™‚ What do you think, will it be as good when I play the washburn mandolin with these Halloween nail arts on. lol.
