Spa Time!

Hallo everyone!!!! It was October 2015 when I last wrote on my blog. That was what? Centuries ago. Gahhh! Sorry to be MIA these past few months but my day job has been keeping me busy. But hey, I'm here now! Just dropping by to show you how my lovely spa day went. 

A couple of weeks ago, I got to experience an hour massage at Cozy Chemistry Dentaclinica and Spa Co. in Quezon City. If you're looking for an affordable massage with an amazing ambience then you should visit their spa now!

They have several rooms for you to choose from. They have rooms dedicated for the whole family, couples, and walk-in individuals. They will make sure to provide you the out most relaxing service you deserve.

Their one-hour massage comes with this cute and delicious milk tea to complete your one-of-kind spa day!

I took advantage of this time to take a souvenir out of this very relaxing spa. I feel like I'm in Thailand with this decoration. Don't you think? P.S. don't mind my flabs :(

These are some of the names of their rooms. From the names itself, you would get the feeling that you're leaving your stress behind.

The massage beds look and feel really comfortable. Plus, the aroma of the oil will add up to the zen your body needs.

This area is where the manicure, pedicure, foot spa, and hand spa happens. You'll have the cozy environment that they are very proud to offer.

They offer international and local nail polish brands. This means you have a wide variety of quality shades to choose from.

This is their setup for the very own foot spa. You can make sure that all those unwanted dry skin will be removed and you'll have your soft and supple feet again!

Luckily, I got the chance to meet the two young and vibrant owners of Cozy Chemistry Dentaclinica and Spa Co. when I visited their spa.

Initially in 2013, the name of the spa was ACG Dentaclinica & Spa Co and was owned by another family. In May of 2015, the lovely ladies on the above picture was able to acquire the spa and dental clinic. Now, they are continuing their journey in making sure we get to have our "me time" through their cozy spa.

The great thing about this spa is that it has partnered with a dental clinic. This is very unique that's why the owners felt like this is their selling point.

From the owners point of view, "They believed that being passionate about your work is vital, but it is, as equally as important for a person to have a haven to relax, unwind, rejuvenate and revitalize."

What are you waiting for? Book an appointment and get the massage you earn for working too hard.

Nippon Series: Nara, Japan

Winter of February 2015 when I finally saw Nara, Japan. I didn't imagine there's a place so serene and civilized until I've visited Nara Prefecture.  Did you know that it is the 1st permanent capital that was established in the year of 710? Whoa, right? I guess this is the reason why you'll really feel how their culture has evolved and has been kept. But personally, aside from the Big Buddha in one of the temples, I adore those deer that were roaming around tourist spots. 

What to see here:

  1. Todaiji Temple - huge temple where you'll see the Big Buddha
  2. Omizutori - ceremonies of Buddhists that include water and fire
  3. Horyuji Temple - the world's oldest wooden architecture
  4. Isuien Garden - amazing and vast garden near Todaiji
  5. Wakakusa Yamayaki - annual festival where the whole mountain is set to fire
  6. Nara Park - large green park that has deer roaming around
  7. Kasuga Taisha - peaceful and grand shinto shrine
  8. Toshodaiji Temple - huge temple in Nara
  9. Yakushiji Temple - wonderful temple in Nara
  10. Shin-Yakushiji Temple -  life size statues of 12 guardian deities
  11. Heijo Palace / Nara Imperial Palace - old imperial palace of Nara
  12. Kofukuji Temple - family temple of the Fujiwara Clan
  13. Other tourist-y things to see here 

If you're planning to visit Japan, make sure to add Nara on your list. It's one-of-a-kind and being a Filipino, we don't usually get to see deer roaming around a park. If it was in Manila or other parts of the Philippines, they might be gone or use for commercial purposes. You know what I mean right? Kung sa Pinas ito, wala na yang mga usa, binenta na yan at hindi naalagaan ng maayos.

What I wore:

Pink coat - Forever 21
Hoodie & Stockings - Terranova
Chuck Taylor - Converse
Bag - Myeongdong
Floral headpiece - Chatuchak

The Nippon Series - Kyoto Day 1

Well hello there! It has been ages since I posted on my first love - my blog. I'm assuming you missed me. Yes? Even a little bit? I'm sure you do. Hahaha! I miss writing too. Sorry in advance as I was stuck in the real world pretending to be an ex-mermaid. What? Hiccups, yes but I'm definitely back to share my fashion, travel, food, and lifestyle happenings. Hope you're still here with me. Pretty please? :)

I'm sure looking at the photos you already know where I have been. This was February 2015, the week of my birthday, in fact Winter of this year. It's very obvious with the clothes I was wearing that it was frozen cold. But that didn't stop me from showing you what Kyoto can offer. 

If you are a lover of culture, then Kyoto is the best place for you to see.  This place was once the capital of Japan. You'll see hundreds of all sizes of Buddhist temples, lovely gardens, enormous imperial palaces, majestic Shinto shrines, and traditional wooden houses. 

Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of the most breathtaking shinto shrines I've seen in Kyoto. It consists of numerous torii gates placed on top of a 233-meter sacred mountain called Mount Inari. This was built as a place of worship and respect where Japanese pray for good fortune.

If you're planning to go to Kyoto soon, this place is a must-see and experience. See more detailed information on the helpful links below:

P.S. If you want to see the place in Winter of next year, make sure you're wearing comfortable and thick clothes for the temperature goes down up to -8 degrees celsius. For affordable, fashionable, and fits-the-weather clothes make sure to visit the Zalora Pop-Up Store now.

What I wore:

Scarf and Hat - Cotton On
Hippie Skirt - Forever 21
Manic Panic Hair Dye - Funkystreaks
Purse - Coach
