Styles of Summer at Vivere Salon

I'm pretty sure you've seen a couple of Vivere Salon branches in malls, but have you tried out their services yet? Prior to last Wednesday's visit, I never dared to enter because, 1) I already have a go-to salon, and 2) I thought they had sky-high service prices. 

My hair's longing for retouch and pampering, and I'm glad Vivere Salon's there to the rescue! Vivere Salon is known for their signature precision cuts tailored specifically for individual hair texture, quality, face-shape and lifestyle. They also offer world-class services for hairstyling (color, straightening, perming, scalp treatments to name a few).

Right after a long day at work, I headed to their newest branch in TriNoma. Wanted to get a darker shade and they totally achieved it! :) After my entire Vivere experience, I swore to go back! Here are five reasons why:

1. They know what's best for you! Vivere Salon's skills in bespoke cuts and styles are anchored on the training and education provided by the prestigious Vidal Sassoon Academy - considered to be the Harvard University of hair education.

2. They only use Schwarzkopf products. Need I say more? :)

3. They have fair prices - starting from Php360 up for cuts, Php750 for scalp treatments, Php150 for nail services, and now only Php3,500 for rebond and perming at any length (until May 31, 2015)!

4. Very kind and accommodating staff. I really think this is important because some salon crews are unwelcoming and annoying, which makes me want to step out right away.

5. Convenient locations! Vivere Salon now has nine branches all over Luzon including SM Megamall, Robinsons Galleria, Gateway Mall, Festival Mall, Fairview Terraces, Lucky Chinatown Mall, Robinsons Midtown, Marquee Mall and of course, TriNoma!

6. I went out immensely satisfied and happy!

Many many love and thanks to Vivere Salon and my loves Joel and Glaiza for having me! I had an amazing time! ❤❤❤

The Suites at Mt. Malarayat

I'd give anything just to be away from this city again! My whole being's craving for a long, fulfilling getaway! It's also not helping that I'm blogging about our previous trip at The Suites because I'm missing it even more! :( Can we have unlimited cash and vacation leaves forever?

Anyway, if you want to go on a quick getaway this weekend, check out The Suites at Mt. Malarayat! My parents and I stayed here last Holy Week and we had an amazing time! ❤ Some snaps and what I wore below!

When we got off the car, I swear I thought I was in paradise! The Suites was so beautiful, and our room had a majestic view of Mt. Malarayat. Perfect place to ponder on things - life in general - and embrace the calmness and serenity of holy week. :)

Hours after checking in, my parents and I went fishing. If you haven't tried fishing yet and you think it's easy, think again! Hahahaha! I had a hard time getting fishes! In an hour, I only got a total of 4. :( Lol!

Daddy who's an expert, though, caught more and filled the pail we had with poor fishes. :P

Meanwhile, Arnie kept whining about how unfair life is. #HUGOT hahahaha!

Of course, Arnie being Arnie, returned the fishes to the lake because I can't handle seeing them die. True story!

Posting about our Day 2 in The Suites soon! ❤

SM Ladies' Night

Albeit having no strict dress code in work (except during meetings), I still find it hard to determine my daily #OOTDs. I spend half an hour staring blankly at my closet, looking for something to wear or wondering how to re-style the other clothes I have. I think the fashion gods heard about my dilemma (I know I'm not alone!) and granted us the SM Ladies' Night!

Braved EDSA right after work for the launch of SM Ladies' Night at SM Makati last April 15. And all the traffic and stress were worth it because of the crazy deals I got! From supposedly paying Php8,900, my total bill only sought for Php3,800+! Amazing!

Mark your Wednesdays for the SM Ladies' Night! Make sure you're already at the department store minutes before 6PM to get dibs on the prettiest clothes and sizes at 50% OFF!!! Even the new arrivals are on sale. Yep, not kidding!

Went home with bags of clothes and happiness! I love you, SM! ❤❤❤

Many thanks to SM Ladies and ARC for having me! I had so much fun! My closet's rejoicing!

Palawan Day 3: Kamia Bay and KaLui

And just like that... I'm posting my Palawan Day 3 photo diary already. Super bilis! I enjoyed our stay so much, I think I'm going back again this year! The experience was incredible! ❤

Anyway, for our last full day, we headed to Kamia Bay right after breakfast for our dose of water sports! Having the beach on your own means unlimited jet-skiing, kayaking and more time to just relax and appreciate the beauty of nature. Pure bliss! :)

More #BaeFF goals with Yhe! Feeling badass with my jet-ski and very pa-sweet naman ng kayak hahahah 

In action with Kelly! Let's get it on!

I love my friends!!! ❤❤❤

During my stay in Palawan, I got a lot of comments from readers and friends to dine at KaLui. Apparently, your visit in Puerto Princesa won't be complete without trying out their dishes. We had such a filling lunch buffet at KaLui, and I'm so glad my swimsuit OOTDs were over because I got to really pig out and enjoy their offers! Sobrang sarap ibang level!
