Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa Celebrates the 2nd Year of National Pampering Day

When it comes to pampering on a national scale, Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa holds the only spot. After introducing the celebration of the National Pampering Day last year, Nailaholics is back at it again this 2017 with an amplified nationwide celebration of relaxation that everyone is looking forward to this October 17.

The National Pampering Day got off to a good start last year where Nailaholics offered free manicure service and a stress relieving hand massage from 10 AM to 12 NN on all their branches nationwide. This year, everyone will be treated to a free service of their choice: a soothing manicure, calming foot spa or a relaxing foot massage.

“We Filipinos are very hardworking in any given aspect of our lives and a nation of energetic and industrious people best deserves real pampering once in a while. This year, as Nailaholics celebrates the 2nd National Pampering Day, we go deeper and dedicate this to everyone and remind them to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and relax for a while.” said Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa.

“With last year’s success of the National Pampering Day, we are back this year with a bigger and much more enjoyable day of pampering. In partnership with the number one salon brand and most beloved nail lacquer brand in the world, O.P.I., National Pampering Day 2017 will accommodate more guests with the extension of pampering time until 1PM.  Also, the best thing about this year’s National Pampering Day is that it will be in support to World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas” added Amaro.

So save the date and get ready to park away any thoughts of work because the only responsibility you have is to loosen up. Wind down and head down to any Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa branch on October 17, 2017 (Tuesday) from 10 AM to 1 PM and get yourself a free relaxing manicure, foot spa or foot massage.

Let Nailaholics’ skilled nail technicians take care of you for a little while and walk out of this Hamptons-inspired nail salon feeling refreshed and ready to bring it on again. Grab this once a year treat only at the country’s top destination for relaxation and real pampering.

LEGO’s here to unlock CdeO’s creativity

In case you didn’t know, the word “lego” is an abbreviation of two Danish words, “leg godt,” which means “play well.” In Latin, the word means “I put together.” The Danish company was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Kristiansen, a carpenter.

The founder’s dream was to “inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow.

With toys? How?

Well, for one, playing with LEGO teaches kids to think in three dimensions. It develops their problem-solving skills, organization, and planning by construction. For the little ones, it will boost their motor development. It also improves literacy and communication as kids work through the instructions. Amazing so far, right?

Here’s a glimpse of the early LEGO creations…

In 1947, plastic blocks were introduced and as time went by different models and sets came out. LEGO creations has then become a form of storytelling for some. May it be in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Architecture – anything a kid (and adult) can imagine it can definitely be made. These legendary toys have made so much difference ever-since their creation!

 

And now, our city has a store! The First CERTIFIED Store in Mindanao. What does that mean? It means the store doesn’t just sell LEGO’s, they have a much fun setup. They have a Pick-a-Brick wall in the store where shoppers can hand-pick the parts that they need, they have fully assembled LEGO sets around the store for inspiration (not just the usual stacked boxes on display), an interactive play area in the center of the store for the kids to have a “hands-on, minds-on” experience with LEGO bricks, and exclusive sets not available in other stores. Below are some photos.

They have 4 different designs – NinjaGO, LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Friends, and LEGO Duplo lines. You get to have fun and help children along the way.

Cucina Higala – Modern Filipino & Heritage Cuisine

Cucina Higala – Good friends, great food, is the newest modern Filipino and heritage cuisine restaurant open in Cagayan de Oro City that offers its own awesomeness.

I had the privilege of being invited to the pre-opening of Cucina Higala. Owners Jan and Maggie Uy of  8 year old TFC Group, imparted their wonderful vision and mission for this restaurant during the pre-opening event.

But with all these many food choices available in the city, they wanted to give us something different, something unique, something memorable. They wanted to serve food that takes you back to your roots. Read More
