Pamper Me Time: Nail-A-Holics Gateway Mall

Late date?  Magpaganda na lang muna tayo.  

My husband and I made an agreement not to stress ourselves while waiting for each other especially when we're about to have a date.  We made the pack after a big fight when I made him wait for more than 2 hours.   I know it was bad.  Gutom na gutom ang mahal ko, kaya ayun riot!   I made suyo and bawi naman after.  Give and take.  Minsan sya ang bumibinggo, minsan ako. Hahaha.  

So you'll be late for your date?  Or you're the one waiting?  Eto tips.

Communicate. Text/ email/ call early to inform your date about your situation. Some things cannot be avoided but future things can be prevented.  Since I'm the makulit type and I know myself when it comes to wasted time, I call my husband about an hour before his shift ends to check on his status.  This way I can manage my time and perhaps do a little shopping in between (charged to him). 

Adjust.  Give room for flexibility.  If things are just not lining up according to plan, then change it!  Our date night is every Monday.  It's sacred to us.  But since its a work day, we schedule for example a movie / dinner date perhaps 9 or 10 pm to give room for the other person to travel and etc.  If one of us is running late, we make use of the time we have rather than brewing inisSayang ang date!  After a couple of hiccups, we eventually learned (and still learning) to let go of the plan or make some adjustments.

Kaya naman, last Monday nagpaspa ako.  Actually, it was a timely excuse to try the new nail salon in Gateway Mall (4F new wing).

Loving my clean & simple polish.  Perfect shade for everyday donya peg.

After my manicure and chikachika with the staffs, an hour or so passed and my date arrived without me minding the time.  I got my "me time", beauty and refreshed, so when it's time for our date ayun 100% na ako.  Ohh, diba?
Keep the positive attitude today & command your day good.


Ps.  I hear the Morocco Argan Oil a.k.a. wonder oil is sold cheaper at Nail-a-holics than in Rustans.  I was able to try it.  Ok nga!  One drop, softy na ang hair and hands though I'm not sure if my super sensitive face will like it.  Anyway, will try to save up for it. ;-)
