Fun and Sweet Morning With Whipped

As a person, one of my top priorities is taking care of my body, I know we all do. But being a woman, we have a different way of taking care of ourselves. It requires a lot of things like shower essentials, skin care, hair care, cosmetics, hand and foot care and of course the clothes that we wear. We may see the good results of our efforts in taking care of our body on the outside but what about the inside? One of the most important things that girls tend to nowadays is how to get the best hair removal method without putting your skin in harm. 

Whipped is your newest go-to for your skin and body hair care! It's my first time to try Whipped last weekend and I must say, I'm going to let them take care of me for my next waxing and scrub needs. Whipped offers a fun and sweet hair removal treatment with their candy coloured interiors and friendly and accommodating staff. 



Whipped has 3 branches one in Commerce Avenue Wing in Alabang Town Center, Eight Forbestown Center BGC and the one I visited, Ayala Fairview Terraces.





Whipped offers a fun and sweet list of services. They have sugar waxing and flavoured body scrubs!



I love the shop's interior! The shop is filled with pastel coloured walls and girly furnitures!

My underarm waxing treatment was done by Ate Beth! Waxing isn't painful to me but Ate Beth made the whole time easy, it was very quick and informative. She gave me advices on how to take care of my skin by choosing waxing as my hair removal treatment. Did you know that shaving makes you develop chicken skin and makes your hair thick? Shaving doesn't really eliminate hair, it leaves the root of the hair underneath your skin which can cause ingrown and darkness. Waxing eliminates the hair up to the roots and exfoliates by removing dead skin so it leaves you a fair hair-free smooth skin. 




I'm definitely going back here for my next waxing appointments!


I recommend that you Get Whipped Soon to experience that fun and sweet waxing and scrub service!


I'm going to tell you more about Whipped soon so stay tuned!

One Weekend: Bataan Getaway

There's nothing like spending quality time with family while observing Holy Week traditions on a serene weekend. Ever since were little kids, we spend holy week in Bataan. I guess its just our go-to place whenever one calls for a beach trip.

Since holy week fell on a weekend, everyone was available to go and have some quality time away from the busy streets of Manila. Bataan is a 4-5 hour drive from the city. A lot of historical events took place in this province and there are numerous beaches that you can visit. This is our family's favourite place to go on a quick vacay.

We love going to the West Nuk beach in Morong, Bataan. Its an exclusive beach resort for NAPOCOR employees who are staying in their housing village in Bagac, Bataan. My uncle works for the company so we always visit the place. 

Its not your ideal kind of beach with all the powdery white sand and clear blue waters. The water is clean, the sand is not that white but the beach is peaceful and not too crowded. 


Sand between my toes, sea breeze and a bottle of beer is always a good idea.

It's the boyfriend's first time to tag along with the whole family for a quick vacay. Good thing he had a great time! hehe





Of course, my favourite part of our beach trip is visiting Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar. Each year, this place offers new attractions and services that makes staying here worthwhile, worth the money, time and effort.


They keep on building new structures and buildings that shows and preserves the old Philippines feel. This what makes this place unique from all the modern resorts and hotels.

The best part is always the beach. I particularly love this beach because of the huge waves. Unlike the other beaches in Bataan, this beach is fun because we enjoyed fighting the waves. Of course, what's a visit to the beach without the amazing sunset? Always a magnificent view.

a little cheese won't hurt hehe

FAM BAM!


I've got to give it to the boyfriend for taking amazing photos! Sorry love, but I'm grateful! You're the best!





Look how this place just magically lit up when the sun sets. Amazing. 

You can watch cultural dances in Las Casas too! Definitely a trip down memory lane.


This was our last full day in Bataan, the next day we just had a quick swim in the pool and went back to Manila already.

Told you it was a quick getaway, but its good to have an R & R from time to time.

There are actually a lot of places to see in Bataan, but if you just wanna lounge by the pool and hit the beach, this might be a good itinerary for you.

I'm excited to share my next beach trip with you guys! Keep in touch!


XOXO,
