There are times when you just don’t want the rain to go away. Unless the weather’s not alarmingly stormy, nothing’s more soothing than going with the flow. Stop, and smell the roses.
1. Marni socks, 2. One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp, 3. Fresh Cannabis Santal scented candle, 4. L’Occitane Lavender Harvest foaming bath, 5. Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple, 6. Aromachology Clean and Fresh eau de parfum, 7. Tazo Chamomile Tea (at Starbucks), 8. Evian mineral water spray
Sharing some simple calming techniques: Start by giving your phone a rest as well. Melt into a warm lavender bath. Let your skin soak up spritzes of hydrating mineral water. Wear a clean, fresh scent, or nothing at all. Brew a hot cup of chamomile or lemon balm tea, put on some slow feel-good, preferably guitar, piano or harp music. Cozy up on the couch or bed in comfy pyjamas and feed the soul with a good read (save complicated thrillers for another day). Enjoy a world away.

Still on things I did on a lazy rainy Friday afternoon… I hit Toelicious Spa, the newest nail salon and spa in town. I think it’s my fourth time to have my nails done there. I like their mod nail color collection from The Face Shop and Elianto. The Elianto nail polish I had the last time lasted for a surprising three weeks, which never happens when I use the more popular local brands other nail shops in Laoag offer.
I had the “Yummy” Foot Spa before my pedicure. The peppermint foot mask was so relaxing. My body feels lighter and my feet scream H-A-P-P-Y!
