Mad for Pizza at Il Terrazzo

A few weeks ago, Mickey and I were invited to try out the dishes of the newly opened restaurant, Mad For Pizza in Il Terrazzo, along Tomas Morato in Quezon City.  We arrived in the early evening so we can get a good table and also so we can take photos with still a little bit of natural light.

Mad For Pizza has a casual vibe, the dining crowd consists mostly of big groups (families, officemates and friends) and the occasional couple going out on a date and who likes good food (just like us, haha!). 

Here's one of our favorites dishes at Mad For Pizza, their 1/2 kilo Buffalo Wings (Php268.00).  It was crispy but not dry and had the right amount of spice.  This dish also has a generous serving and is good to share with 3-4 persons.

Make Me Blush Nail Spa and Beauty Lounge

For a long time now, I haven't been wearing nail polish on my hands (but I do regularly get a pedicure).  The reason for the no-manicure stage is that I do a lot of work with my hands - at the office, at home and I also have a habit of washing my hands all the time, which leaves beautifully manicured nails chipped on the 2nd or 3rd day.  But don't get me wrong, I love nail polish!  I have bottles of my favorite brands at home,  I just wished they would last longer though.

I have read that gel nail polish lasts longer than regular nail polish.  But I was a bit skeptical at first because I have tried some of the best regular nail polish brands in the market, and unfortunately, the results are the same.  It's a good thing that Make Me Blush Nail Spa and Beauty Lounge invited me to try out their gel nail polish service.  

The interiors have a happy vibe, the walls were splashed with an ocean green color mixed with Cath Kidston inspired wall paper and the furniture upholstered in the sweetest candy colors.  The place instantly makes you feel comfortable and actually makes you want to linger.

Happy 30th Birthday Burt's Bees!

For over 30 years, Burt's Bees has been the pioneer for natural skincare and boasts of a simple yet powerful heritage: all natural ingredients straight from the source: nature.

I was recently invited to celebrate Burt's Bees 30th Birthday together with other lifestyle and beauty bloggers at the Seda Hotel in Bonifacio Global City.

Beauty Scents at Paseo de Sta. Rosa

One of the many things I love doing when I travel (aside from immersing myself in the culture of a new place I'm about to discover) is outlet shopping.   Leave me in a retail outlet shopping complex and come back for me in a few hours and I'm one happy traveler.  I'm also the type of shopper who would not let a good deal pass when the opportunity presents itself.  But then again, who doesn't?

Outlet shopping has evolved throughout the years and now, in the Philippines, we not only have clothing or shoe stores, we also have a beauty outlet store!
