My first ever Diamond Peel Experience at JaoMD Skincare Clinic (Part 2)

Now that I have toured you around the clinic.. let us now begin with the actual Treatment. I opt for the Facial with diamond peel which was super affordable for only Php800!! (It's not even on promo.) 
All these creams and products they use smells really really good and relaxing! 

 Now to the fun part.. 

 First things first, gotta remove my make-up!
 (Hello! My haggard face from work..)
 JaoMD really takes the effort to thoroughly remove all my make-up (except my lipstick coz I was wearing a matte lippy) while massaging my face as well. It was super relaxing!
 then proceeded to scrubbing my face making sure all the dead skin cells were buffed away and my face was squeaky clean.. 

My first ever Diamond Peel Experience at JaoMD Skincare Clinic (Part 1)

Who would have guessed that in the midst of a busy district like in Ortigas.. There is actually a hidden gem waiting to be found by a skincare freak like me? 
I visited this very minimalistic clinic located at The Grand Emerald Tower last week. I knew I was in desperate need of a good exfoliation a.k.a Diamond Peel because I was actually having problems with my skin lately as I find that I break out a lot than usual.. Maybe due to stress, but mostly because I was so busy that I sometimes forget the importance of exfoliation and a good skincare routine. Boo me! 
Luckily, there is JaoMD Skincare Clinic to the rescue! 

I was informed by a friend that JaoMD just recently celebrated their 1st Anniversary but still extending some of their promos. So I gave it a try.

As you walk inside the clinic you'd be greeted with a smile by the lovely and friendly assistant of Dra. Jao named "honey". I swear she was so nice and accommodating and so as Dra. She even insisted to tour me around the clinic.. So here's a little sneak peek for you guys.
Ofcourse, first things first-- Their extended promos!! 

I was also happy to see that I can actually invite or refer my friends and get my next treatment at 50% off! Yay!! :)
and sure enough, as soon as I sat down they handed me this form to fill up for my record.

Gotti's Ristorante

I had a dinner date with my friend Andi at Gotti's Ristorante a while back.. And I kinda forgot to blog about it but anyways here it is. 

I've known Gotti's for quite sometime now and I've dine here before already but I somehow forgot the taste of their food.. So I was very happy to visit again!
I ordered for the Pesto Php150 "accidentally".. 

I was actually ordering for the white sauce one but for some reason I think I've read the wrong one. So there ya go.. Nope no regrets! I love this one so much and their serving was pretty big too! I love the fact that it's creamy and it has tidbits of bacons or ham (?) but I didn't get to finish the whole thing actually because I was so stuffed already! 

My friend Andi ordered for the Chicken Cordon Blue as always! That's her favorite dish. I also tried it and it was pretty good too!

Bath and Body Works Candle Dupe!

If you've been following me on instagram then you'd know my obsession about candles. I love candles, but it's pretty hard to collect good ones especially if you have a tight budget. I've been meaning to share this with you guys but I had to test these candles first before I could share them with you.

We all know how pricey it could get just to buy yourself a 3-wick bath and body works candle. I should know because I sell candles! Some online shop sells them for a pretty hefty price of 900.. However, I sell mine for only 780/each. Eventhough, it's quite affordable if you buy them at my shop.. I am aware that not everyone can actually spare the money for an overpriced candle. So here's a little tip for  you guys..

Buy the Mainstays 3-wick candles!

I saw these a while back at the Handyman store when they were having a sale! I got my first one for 30% off.. Then I went back and saw that they were having a sale 2 for the price of one! Php269? (I forgot) so I bought more.

I was quite doubtful at first but when I tried burning one of them, I got really obsessed immediately.
One of my all time fave was this Sun Splashed candle.. Mainstays candle burns pretty much evenly!! The wax was very comparable to bath and body works and the scent throw was amazing!
..and look how pretty this one burns! The scent of this one was kind of fruity and nild and just oh my gosh!! I love the smell of this. I live in a pretty spacious house, but this one can fill up the entire house in a matter of minutes. I didn't exactly expect that to happen because of its price.. But surprisingly it did! I was very happy about it.
