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. 🙂

Use only tried and tested beauty products

People, specially women, are more conscious with their appearance and are more likely to try different beauty products to keep their skin young-looking. Taking advantage of this, a lot of beauty products have been invented with a promise to give that everlasting fountain of youth. The truth is only few are guaranteed to make it work and most are just that, a promise.

So before indulging into different products, that will most likely open a Pandora’s box of unknowns, best to check and see what is in the item that you will purchase. Chances are, placebo like effects surround some creams or makeups that one tends to believe hard enough  in order to see some difference.


To ensure that you are getting only the best, not only in quality but in quantity as well, a recommended trick is to trust only in boutiques or pharmacies, like drugstore canada, that either specialize or know about their products well. Plus you are ensured that the people making recommendations have been thoroughly trained and familiarized with the effects of each individual item and can make the necessary suggestions based on their professional judgment.
