Day in the life: Quickie nails

image

We decided to make use of our short free time to go to Nail It! salon in Katipunan to get our paws pampered. We’ve been hearing about how fast and pleasant the service is at Nail It! for a while now and we thought we’d check it out for ourselves.

I want these “mittens” at home! Along with the paraffin, it does feel nice and soft on the hands.

I was asked to choose from a variety of nail art and nail colors. But being a girl who’s constantly running errands and doing my own housework, fancy nails wouldn’t be practical. I chose this nude color called “Silk Stocking” by Orly. It’s a pastel barely-there shade that makes nails look simple and clean.

We were done in about half an hour, just in time for our next appointment. As refreshing as taking a power nap! Thanks, Nail It! We will definitely be back.

Ready For Rain

Human shirt dress and Abercrombie & Fitch cardigan. And check out these cool digs and umbrella! In school, we are taught that there are only have two kinds of weather in the Philippines: sunny and rainy. We’re also taught which months fall in the wet season, and which ones fall in the dry. In real life though, as evidenced by the December rains, we learn that we only have one kind of weather here: unpredictable. Which is why we should always be rain-ready.

We also got this schoolgirl umbrella from Bangkok. So handy and cute!

These Plueys nude rain booties with bows from ReadyForRain.com are both adorable and utilitarian. Makes wading through mud puddles and shallow floods sort of bearable—or at the very least, stylish.
