Beauty Review – Posh Nails at SM San Lazaro

It’s not often that I get to have my nails done by professionals due to my busy schedule. Taking care of my three kids demands all my time. As much as I wish I could do it regularly but my hectic load doesn’t really permit me to do so.   
Thankfully, I had an unplanned grocery shopping last week when daddy A and I agreed to meet in SM San Lazaro.

Since it will take time fetching Kuya Angelo and I have Isabelle with me I decided to had my nail done na lang.When I entered the branch, the receptionist welcomed me with a smile. 

Posh Nails Hand and Foot Spa’s is located at the ground floor of the mall. I love the place’s ambiance! It was so pretty. The interiors were simple yet fabulous. There were white sofas with pink and purple pillows that were very comfortable and inviting, and the staff are very friendly.  


I checked out their service menu and went for POSH Spoiling for my feet.After paying the receptionist  ushered me inside where Amy the attendant is patiently prepping everything.

My feet were first soaked in warm water before the foot spa. Next, Amy used Citrus Scrub to remove some dead skin. 

While I am having my me- time, Isabelle naman is also enjoying talking to the other clients and staff. She’s so bubbly!

 The Citrus mask was slathered and left on my feet and legs for several minutes before my skin got moisturized with the lotion that smells delicious! 

 Later, I fully got to appreciate the whole treatment when I felt how soft and smooth the skin on my feet and legs are.

The verdict – great staff , reasonable prices and nails look fabulous!

Family Fun Trip at Manila Zoo

Before we arrived here in the Philippines Manila Zoo is already in my list to visit. Aside from the fact that it is near our place we also have kids who are fascinated with the animals.

Inigo is familiar with the animals and it’s sounds so I guess this is perfect timing for him to see the animals up close and personal.

Manila Zoo is located along Adriatico St., corner Quirino St., Manila, the main entrance of the zoo is fronting the Playground for Manila youth. It has a land area of 5.5 hectares.


For those who love taking selfie or have a snake around them then you must visitthe Jungle Adventure, just pay php 100 and they will capture  your braveness.

  Compare to the zoo in Dubai animals in Manila Zoo are just few. But the kids still enjoyed their time roaming, running and watching the animals.







 The highlight of our trip is the fun of trying the horse back riding.


Are you familiar with Vice Ganda’s launching movie?. Well, luckily Kuya Angelo rode to the famous Petrang Kabayo..

Priced at php 100 per pax, if accompnied by parent then she must pay as well.
