If you’re a working girl like me, you rarely have time to pamper yourself so when I got an invite from the lovely Ms. Rossel Taberna to check out the newly opened THE BLOUNGE in QC I made sure I cleared my schedule for a day of beautification! I called up my buddy Muffin, who was also in dire need of a day of prettifying. So we set the date and met up for some kikay time together. On most days when I’m shuttling from one place to another, my hair is usually in a bun or ponytail. Oh, how I wish I could wake up in the morning and have a stylist blow-dry my hair para vavavoooooom ako araw-araw. Kung pwede lang magkaroon ng isang closet kung saan papatirahin ko yung isang hair stylist! Maglalagay naman ako ng Egg Sandwich at Coleman sa loob ng closet..at may butas naman para makakahinga naman siya..ano akala niyo sa akin? Hello, Human Rights yun! Hahahaha!!! I kid, I kid. I hope the hair stylists dont stone me to death upon reading this. I guess every girl just wishes she could wake up and have that “galing parlor” look each day..but if you’re no Beyonce or Oprah, we can sadly only afford this special treatment on rare occasions.
A trip to the salon is such a precious thing for busy urban dwellers like moi..it’s almost sacred to have something as simple as a blow-dry or freshly polished toe nails! It’s vanity but it’s also sanity. These are simple joys that we girls need once in a while 🙂 Luckily, there’s a new spot in QC for all my Northerner buddies!
The Blounge boasts of it’s high tech savvy vibe by offering each guest a personal IPAD to use while having their treatments. Seeing the IPADs laying on each dresser was the ultimate ALLELUIA moment! I was so happy I was able to reply to the dozens of emails I left pending while having a hot-oil treatment and a pedicure 🙂 Muffin, on the other hand, enjoyed playing some Diner Dash while having her hair colored. The staff at The Blounge were all very accommodating and professional. They took the time to explain all the treatments very thoroughly, which I really appreciated. 🙂 The price points are very affordable too, especially for the level of service they offer. Kayang kaya ng small Teacher’s Budget namin ni Muffin 🙂 We looked totally smashing but were saddened by the fact that both our boyfriends were busy and nowhere near QC. We ended up going on a date after..just me and Muffin looking drop dead gorgeous for NO ONE!Nyehhhhh!:) Of course as soon as I got home, I skyped Patrick to brag about my silky, shiny hair at syempre binola-bola niya ako like a well trained boyfriend. Magaling hijo! HAHAHA! 🙂
