Be Hair-Free with Lay Bare

Lay Bare 5

I’ve had the honor to be part of Lay Bare’s First Bloggers’ Event. Being the fanatic of this waxing salon since it started 8 years ago (my first-ever Brazilian waxing experience was at their first branch in Sct. Ybardolaza QC), naturally I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to hear straight from this family-owned and managed company about their story, their strength and their goals.
We first had an all-female circuit training at Curves BGC. More about my experience here.

Then it’s time to go straight to Lay Bare‘s Fisher Mall branch.

I’ve tried circuit training at a different gym / sports house before and I felt that my head was spinning and that my heart would jump out of my ribs! Yes, that exaggerated. When I read that it is going to be part of LayBare’s blogger’s activity, initially I thought I’d like to skip.

On the morning of the event though, something tells me that I have got to go… and so I did. Boy was I glad I did! We first did a fitness assessment to identify where you are at your goal and how to achieve it by proper diet and exercise.

Our body measurements and body fat were taken, then we are all ready to start the workout. Their gym is female-friendly — there are no posters of buff body, just inspirational words to look at and live by. Do you want to know exactly what the Curves circuit is like?

Soneva Spa

Ever since college I’m drawn to the idea of pampering myself through retail therapy, having a manicure and pedicure or the best of them all — a full body massage. Although I haven’t read much about the health benefits it give, I know for a fact that after a rough day at work (or school), it helps relax the muscle tension esp on my shoulders and my whole mind, body and soul.

There can never be “too much spa” or “too much massage” in my world. I, personally, like most of us I think, live a very hectic lifestyle to say the least. An offer to have a spa massage is a welcome change in my very busy, fast-paced and highly stressful life. That’s where Soneva Spa comes in!

Some time last February, my friend who owns Introspect Hair Salon & Makeup Studio, opened her second branch at Fisher Mall. Since my hair scream for a makeover, I went straight to this chic salon to have it done!

Agenda: new hair color + fringe

A luxurious afternoon spent at Lulu Nails & Dry Bar

One of the little luxuries I love spoiling myself with is spending time at a spa — whether to have massage treatments or beauty treatments like foot spa with manicure and pedicure. This was exactly my agenda when I headed to Lulu Nails & Dry Bar.

imageOne thing I consider the most in spas is space. Huge space. Here, you won’t have any problems hearing other clients’ noise (e.g. while they’re on the phone, etc.). In fact, in both instances that I’ve had my pampering here, I had the whole spa all to myself! That’s because I chose to go here around 2 to 3 in the afternoon, which is such a perfect time to have a relaxing time.

imageTrivia: I gave myself a nickname before — I am Lulu. In fact, my first blog prior Dollhouse Diary was called Lulu and Teacups. Lulu is synonymous to beauty, sweetheart and dream amongst others. And this gave an even more meaningful reason why I hold this nails and dry bar close to my heart.

imageBathrobes and LaZboy? Yes, please! I was wearing jeans and it can’t be rolled up to my knees. The nice staff offered me to use their bathrobe so I can have utmost comfort throughout the whole duration of my pampering session.
