Mommy’s Day Out at Nailaholics

Entry Comments Actions

Playtime with Bryce

On normal days, I stay at home and juggle about two things in my life: taking care of my baby and trying to get work done. Yes, this means that sometimes I even had to skip taking care of some of my basic needs (read: no shower). Recently though, since I acknowledged that self-care should be a regular part of my life, I keep my stress level in check and try to squeeze in some time in a day to attune to myself and do some self-care.

Some of the most effective for me are: 1) deep breathing— helps me to calm down and regulate my heart rate; 2) visualization or “guided imagery”— closing my eyes, picturing myself relaxing in a beach with its blue waters instantly transports me to that serene place; 3) mindful snacking— hard-boiled egg or wheat peanut butter sandwich helps me get through a stressful moment; 4) sipping a hot cup of mother’s milk tea while jotting down my thoughts or making lists— helps de-clutter my brain to regain a clearer perspective; 5) kissing my husband— helps my brain release happy hormones; 6) listening to my favorite music— especially songs about love makes me loosen up and gets me so giddy; 7) watching a funny video— there’s nothing a good laughter can’t cure; 8) playing with my #LittleAdamBryce— seeing the spark in his eyes and the way he smiles when he discovers something new is incredibly priceless!

Mommy’s day out!

On other days though, about twice to thrice a month, I get to go out (or at least I try to) on my mommy’s day out. Other than meeting up and chatting the day away with friends, feasting on comfort food or discovering what’s new in our neighborhood or in the metro, I opt for some r&r and do some pampering activities.

Ideally I want my monthly body massage sessions but since last year when I was pregnant and until now that my boy is ten months old, I still haven’t gone to a spa. It would take me about half a day to be done, and of course that is not feasible for now since I directly breastfeed my baby.

So my most favorite pampering activity and I suppose, the most usual amongst girls and moms like me is— manicure and pedicure.

I was scheduled for my usual pedicure session at a local salon in our town, when I got an invitation to try Nail.a.holics Nail Salon & Spa. Luckily they have a branch nationwide and the one that is closest to me is in SM Bacoor.

A foot spa, manicure and pedicure just right on schedule is an offer I wouldn’t pass up on, so off we go to the salon!

Celebrate National Pampering Day at Nailaholics Nail Salon & Spa

Consider this the best excuse to give yourself that much-needed day of pampering.

Mark October 17, Monday on your calendars — because from 10 AM to 12 noon, you can head over to any Nailaholics branch nationwide and get a relaxing manicure and hand massage for FREE.

For many, a trip to the nail salon is a rare indulgence. All too often, work and the daily grind of busy schedules keep them from getting the necessary “me-time” that everyone craves and needs. But as Nailaholics celebrates and takes part in the country’s first ever #NationalPamperingDay, the brand hopes to remind everyone that it’s OK to take some time for yourself and indulge.

Perhaps no other nail salon in the country is better known for having perfected the art of a quick, urban pampering the way Nailaholics has. Their interiors are inviting, their service is efficient, and the promise of getting whisked away from realities of looming deadlines, to-do lists, traffic, and whatever else awaits outside the doors of this quaint Hamptons-themed escape, becomes possible— even if it’s only for a few hours.

“We get that,” says Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head. “And it’s exactly why we we’re celebrating National Pampering Day. We want to give people who need a break a quick escape where they won’t have anything to worry about. So be sure that you head over to your nearest Nailaholics branch to get pampered for free.”

I still feel relaxed even if Bryce is with me because he’s also relaxed in the atmosphere of the nail salon.

  1. Manicure and pedicure are not my thing. My kind of day out is breakfast or lunch with my friends while our kids are in school. Today, na yung #nationalpamperingday 🙂

    1. I love brunch too! On special days I’m lucky to get to do both one after the other. 😆

  2. I super get you. I exclusively breastfeed my 5-week old baby so I can’t leave him yet to get some pampering done. But I’ve been thinking of getting an at home manicure/pedicure service na lang. Self-care is super important! Had to remind myself that these challenging past few weeks.

  5. I can’t believe I wasn’t able to take advantage of their National Pampering Day celebration! I think there’s one in Fisher Mall ‘coz it looks the same as the ones you were at. I’m gonna try them out maybe this week. I badly need to get my gel polish redone!

  6. Yay I love Nailaholics! Now that my son is 4 (independent enough!), I try my best to pamper myself from time to time. Nailaholics is one of my favourite girly places!

  7. It’s been so long since I’ve gotten a mani-pedi. In a perfect world, I’d go every week and have my polish color changed all the time lol.

  8. The place looks so homey and so cozy! It’s really perfect for pampering! 🙂 It’s great also that your little Bryce was able to endure the whole session with no fuss.

  9. I have yet to try Nail-a-holics. But the place looks inviting. 🙂 I’m happy for you that you got some pampering there.

  10. It’s been ages since I’ve been to a spa myself much less a mani-pedi session. I DIY nowadays (when I have time left) and there’s a massage place in front of our area that I go to for an hour’s worth of massage when I can no longer endure my backpains. I’ve marked this date in my calendar but unfortunately, I didn’t make it to their national pampering day. Oh well. I’ll schedule a visit to their branch nearest me soon. 🙂
