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.

November is a month filled with excitement as I am a birthday celebrant and a November bride!

I have been eying on beauty subscription boxes for months now but I am not easy to give in. But since November 2013 is a whole lotta special, I finally gave in and chose to subscribe to BDJ Box. This month’s theme is Blushing Beauty; very befitting as I want to be both a “blushing bride” on our wedding and a “blushing beauty” everyday!

Being hair conscious has never been my style. Although I’ve tried hair rebonding twice a couple of years ago, I’ve always sported long, black, naturally curly hair since time immemorial.

Putting my hair on a bun on a regular day is such a habit I’ve never tried to sway away from.

There are very few times though that I would have the powers to let my hair down.

Wear my hair down

But after months of being bored with my hair, I’ve decided to hit a friend’s salon to have a hair makeover!

I was interested to have digital perm but since I’m naturally curly, senior stylist – Rian,  advised me to have a hair cut.

Hair cut, hair color and a hair spa plus eyebrow threading and deluxe manicure on the side are the services I’ve ended up having. *laughs* Instant “me” time salon date!

The salon uses Davines hair color and I chose light natural warm brown, although it might not be too obvious in the photo below.

Voilà! My hair after my makeover! *smiles*
