Last December was a blur to say the least and it was the most tiring Christmas season I’ve ever had so far, but somewhere in the middle was a welcome break, or at least the key to one. Please pardon me for this way overdue post.
On December 18, a lazy (not for those in the Christmas rush) overcast Saturday, I was invited by lovely Liz of Project Vanity to meet up with other beauty and lifestyle bloggers at the Qi Wellness and Reflexology Spa in Salcedo Village, Makati. I arrived and said hello to Jane (sorry, forgot what her blog’s name was, I’m so bad at this) and Liz when I entered the waiting area and we quickly plopped ourselves on several chaise loungers. Continue reading to see the bloggers I met up with.
It was a nice warm feeling that greeted me upon meeting Liz, that girl has non-judgmental old soul charm and I felt extremely welcome in the group because of her. She has an uncanny way of making just anybody truly feel like they’re a somebody. I like that in a person.
The invitation’s purpose was for a discreet product launch and free relaxation experience at the Qi Wellness Spa. Among the other bloggers (below) were Alex (Alexandra) of Reluctant Stylista (right) who won in last year’s Philippine Blog Awards for best Fashion & Beauty blog and best blog design…and she also happens to be the assistant wardrobe stylist of our very own KC Concepcion. What a gal, eh?
We were also later in the company of Shen of Shen’s Addiction and Kim of The Beauty Addict (ok…so mga addik talaga…LOL). Phoebe of phoebeann also joined us but in the photo below her significant other in the background will have to do as proxy, hehe. Phoebe was already availing of the massage treatment here. We spent the remainder of the day talking about life, love, food, events…among other things.
We were heavily rationed with food for thought…by Conti’s! I practically dived into that box of lemon squares which happen to be an extreme favorite of mine :).
In effect however, not all of us were able to avail of the supposed 2-hour scrub & rub deal that Jane and Phoebe had due to the lack of masahistas just for that day. They didn’t expect that many of us to arrive, but HARHAR we did walk away with a valid for 6-mos voucher for that same treatment so I can schedule myself straightaway when I’m ready for utter pampering. 🙂
