Self-Care 2018 Series: Brazilian Waxing at Lay-Bare Bonifacio Stopover

January 5, 2018
Just before 2018 kicked in, like you, I made my own resolutions. You may have noticed that everyone was all about "self-care" last year. It may seem as easy as it sounds until I learned recently that the term goes beyond its two words. After a couple of good reads, I learned about its five dimensions and how truthfully, incorporating all five may indeed bring the peace urban jungle dwellers like you and I crave for.


I can go on and on about my resolutions and how it ties back to the 5 self-care dimensions above. For today though, I will indulge you on a little sulit discovery I got over the holidays. :)

Feliz Cumpleaños, Bata Philippines!

Can we all swoon for a minute over Tyra Banks' shoe closet?

When it comes to shoes, just like Ms. Banks, I'm all for quality vs. quantity. The lack of a walk-in closet in my flat allows me to be on point with this principle, making my shoe (selection) well-curated and loved to its last breath. While I have multiple pairs from certain favourite brands, I'm happy to share that Bata is slowly working its way into my fashion palette.


Founded and popularized in Europe since the late 1800s, Bata is a trusted name worldwide that's worth checking out. I paid their SM Makati branch a visit on their first birthday here in the Philippines and can I just say -- I want them all! They have shoes for my 9-5 and smart casuals:



For my weekend city getaways:


Totally crushing on these brogues!
