Relax & Unwind

If you’re looking for a place to unwind after a toxic week, then you might want to consider treating yourself to a Wellness Spa that can address your specific needs. Nowadays, there's just so many options to choose from that you have no excuse to not give yourself some well-deserved "me-time".

Just a few days ago, I visited a newly opened wellness center (first quarter 2018) called Royal Oriental Wellness or “ROW” for short, located in #233 Nicanor Garcia Street Makati. The name speaks for itself.

Upon entering, my sister and I were welcomed with warm smiles and some ginger tea. We were also asked to fill in some personal details as SOP. Expect questions like “Are you pregnant?”, and yes it is indeed a valid question to ask because some massage techniques / stretching can be borderline extreme.  It’s always safe to ask, you never know.

So here are some snippets of the interiors of the place. Personally I’d say it’s very modern with an interesting touch of the Orient. It is so cozy that it feels like home. The lighting accentuates the setting.

We were then led to the second floor, to which we each had our own therapists. Do take note that you also have the option to request for a Chinese Master for a more specialized service. 

My sister and I availed of The Royal Signature Foot Massage for 80 minutes. The rate was at Php980. If you choose a Chinese Master, it would be at P1,180. For added comfort, ROW provides an outfit to which you can change in, but you can also opt not to if you don’t want. Just a point of clarification though, The Royal Signature Foot Massage is not purely foot massage.

To me, it’s as I’m availing of a full body massage. It’s definitely worth it, not to mention their beds are so comfortable.

Big shoutout to my therapist Cherry and Royal Oriental Wellness for pampering me :)

Hope you enjoyed this post! No matter what, after a long week, always find time to relax. Start by listening to your favorite song. Trust me, it will always set the mood.

Little Miss Sunshine

Cool, Calm and Collected. This is my peg for today’s post. A look that is very timely for the month of May. Hopefully good times ahead. Let's all stay positive.

If you’re observant enough, then you’d probably notice that my top is quite loose. Well that’s because I am wearing my dad’s polo. Who says women can’t rock men’s fashion?

Truth is, if I had a boyfriend, I’d probably hoard his closet too. Hopefully he likes the idea. (Laughs) And if he doesn't mind, I can also help choose his outfits...the blogger in me is always at work.

With the proper styling, wearing oversized clothes can be damn sexy. Remember when Ana wore Christian’s clothes in Fifty Shades? Messy or undone hair paired with a polo has so much sex appeal.

Anyways, styling an oversized polo is easy. Just fold both sleeves (I prefer ¾) , then get the ends of the polo and tie a ribbon/knot. For a more revealing look, you can also dress the polo as an offshoulder, doesn’t hurt to get creative. It’s fun that way.

I paired my dad’s polo with fitted jeans and a pair of nude-beige rubbershoes for a casual look.  For the accessories, I went for a gold and black combo for both my earrings and purse. It’s a color combination that never goes out of style. Glamour at its best.

Welcoming May with so much love! As always, stay cool and chic. Take advantage of the remaining summer days and wear something bright and colorful.
