When I visited Bali last December (see my previous Bali post here), I dragged my man to try a new spa in Ubud called Shinto Spa. I first discovered about this spa from an Indonesian magazine and as a spa lover for life I knew I had to go there.
Shinto Spa does not kid when it says it’s the best Japanese-themed spa in Bali. Although it has a higher price point compared to other local spas, their price justifies the kind of service that you receive. I’m a firm believer that cheaper price doesn’t always mean better deal – sometimes price speaks quality. First of all, the place is neat and clean – this is the standard that I always go for everytime I go to a spa. Second, they have trained masseuses and beauticians. I was already aware that this spa fell on a high-end category so I knew what I got myself into (big splurge).
When one thinks about Bali what most definitely first comes to mind is its gorgeous beaches. No wonder major Balinese cities like Seminyak, Kuta, and Nusa Dua never run out of tourists who wish to enjoy the wonderful scenery of Bali beaches. It’s almost a crime to not visit the beaches while you’re in Bali. Most of my past trips to Bali typically involved water sports activities – I never stayed too far from beach area. But last December, my man and I decided to spend four days in Ubud, a town located in the mountains – an hour drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport. Ubud isn’t as crowded as other places and it has a cooler weather, which is a huge plus for me as I couldn’t stand being in too much heat.
I use make-up regularly. I love it and I always have fun doing it. For some people it’s a waste of time but for me it’s a little “me” time ritual that wakes me up in the morning. However…removing make-up is not as fun as applying it. If you think one cleanser is enough to take it all off your face, think again. Throughout the years I’ve tried various make-up cleansing products, all with the promise of removing makeup in one easy step. Heck no. I couldn’t even get it off after two cleansing process! So after years of experimenting, I came up with this 4-Step Cleansing regime that is effective in removing all traces of makeup.
Wait. Hold on. Whaaa?! Did I just say four? Yes indeed! I know it sounds too much but so far this method works the best for my skin. I have oily-combination skin and I occasionally get breakouts. After I started implementing this into my skincare regime, I noticed improvements in my skin and I don’t get breakouts as often (only during periods).
How’s everyone doing today? I hope you don’t feel overwhelmed with all the holidays shenanigans 😉 As for me, I have some Christmas gatherings that I can’t wait to go to but it’s not happening until the next two weeks. In the meantime, I will just browse the world wide web for some holiday inspirations and enjoy my homemade eggnog latte!
I just turned 29! 29th birthday on November 29 (sounds pretty cool eh?)
In honour of my birthday (and of the fact that this is my last year of being in the 20s age group), I’d like to list 29 things that make me happy this past year.
It’s time for some weekend treats!
Last week I wrote my first Friday Reads post, click here to see what it’s all about. I realized not everyone is as much of a bookworm as me so from now on I’ll do Friday Entertainment series instead! I will keep on posting books and readings recommendations but I’ll also include some other fun stuff for ya 🙂
So go get your favorite drink and check out these fellas…
The weekend is upon us, hell yeahhh!
Friday calls for some unwind time for me and what’s better than spending your Friday evening curling up with some great reads?! Going out is hella fun too but since I’m still in the ‘loner’ zone, I’d rather stick with my books, laptop, and a cup of good tea.
