Your Ultimate Summer Pampering Destination: Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa

Summer means hot weather, beach time, shorts, sandals, sundresses–and lots of it. The question is, are you ready? 
Summer is just around the corner. And we can finally embrace the blue summery feels even within our city limit, thanks to Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa! Nailaholics, the city’s top urban nail and pampering destination in the country, has been everyone’s go-to destination for the season, so here’s a run-down of things-to-do to keep your skin, tips, and toes summer ready. 
Prepare for sandal-season

Over the holidays, when the wind blew colder and your legs and feet were clad in tights and boots, it was easy to miss your regular waxing and pedicure appointments. But summer means trading in your warmer outfits for colorful shorts and summer skirts, paired with your favorite flip-flops or sandals. Book an appointment for a pedicure ASAP and jumpstart the season with a waxing session to get your stems ready. 
Get ready for summer outfits

Legs are a major focus during summer that it’s easy to forget your arms need attention too. Because of the weather, you’ll be baring your arms and shoulders as soon as the wind blows a little warmer. Get them in perfect summer shape by booking a moisturizing treatment, followed by a manicure. Be sure to choose a bright hue on your nails to complement the season. 
Make sure you’re super Summer-ready

Before you head off for your summer adventure, get yourself primed for the season by getting a head to toe buff and polish. Get Vitamin Sea: Manicure, Pedicure and Foot Spa to stimulate blood flow and leave skin glowing. Be sure to moisturize post treatment by keeping a bottle of Argan oil handy. 
Post-holiday Pampering Day

A visit to your favorite nail salon isn’t just for pre-holiday beach trips; sometimes, you need vacation from your vacation too. Summer means crowded airports, cramped flights, long road trips—and you’ll need to unwind after. Choose from our menu of spa treatments so that you not only get to relax, you also make sure you’re prepped and ready to go for your next vacation.

#gerilenmbf: Holy Carabao’s Holistic Farm

16707537_1310270072349583_7298067273906687586_o.jpg

a six-inch scar across my back… and now that I have two sons to take care of, this scar will be a reminder to not just be thankful for my second chance in life but to always pursue a more optimistic perspective, to appreciate and give back and to look out for healthier choices including quality of friends, work, time and for this particular post, quality food. Sharing to y’all my impromptu poem I made for @holycarabaofarm just today.

In this fast paced lifestyle, my life was a blur

of puyat and stress and a series of burr…

Slave of gluten and food – processed, instant and fast,

a promise of real extracts, and the infamous saturated fats.

That’s why, Oh my cow! Ako ay napahiyaw!

Farm to Family, Holistic Food in Holy Carabao!

You see my heart’s broken, physically

Survived a surgery through a pump of chemical steroids periodically.

Local Organic farm? Growing food from the heart?

It tickles my ears,believing I could restart.

No fungicides and no synthetic pesticides sa soil.

Only means delicious and nutritious food without the spoil.

Parti pris, I’m  a self-proclaimed environmentalist,

I think we are meant to be, you promote to segregate waste!

I’ve been thrown to the abyss, but now I’m in bliss.

I think I found forever in your hearty Holy Carabao dish!

LOVE YOUR HAIR WITH NOVUHAIR

Loving doesn’t just pertain to having a relationship with someone, it’s not just about going out on a date or stressing on what to give to your partner or dreaming about what to receive in return. Loving should also be about about everything and everyone we love.
Our parents, siblings or friends who stuck with you through thick or thin should form part of this special month. Loving yourself should not be set aside as well.

Love your Hair.jpgTake time to take care of your own appearance and since our hair is on top of our body, it is pertinent that we start with it. Here are a few tips in maintaining a healthy hair.
• Observe good hygiene all the time – regularly wash your hair to remove dirt and grimes.

• Be extra careful whenever combing your wet hair – your hair is vulnerable to breakage during this period.

• Use towel to dry off your hair after shower – Using hair dryer can cause damage to your hair; if you must use the heat then do so sparingly.

• Eat the proper nutrition- Our hair is also dependent on what we eat. Iron-rich food and protein strengthens your hair.

• Have enough sleep – Lack of sleep can cause hair loss. Sleeping allows our hair to repair and regenerate. Changes in our sleeping patterns have shown to affect our body’s immune and hormone function, as well as our physical and mental stamina. Our hair is very sensitive to these changes within the body.

• Pamper your hair – Give your hair a proper massage with the nutrients it needs.

Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is made of 19 Natural ingredients which includes herbal components such as moringa oleifera, panax ginseng, virgin coconut oil and the natural essences of rosemary and peppermint.

Novuhair nourishes the scalp and hair by increasing the flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation to the scalp. Novuhair also helps hydrate the scalp, maintain the hair’s natural luster and prevent early hair graying, hair dryness and itching. #LoveYourHairwithNovuhair

Fun workouts to do with a partner

Exercise, often viewed as a dreadful task, can be more fun and exciting to do especially with your partner or best friend. Not only it is a great time to bond, but you will achieve couple goals or friendship goals and fitness goals as well!

“Exercising with a partner has many advantages – physically, mentally and socially. Working out with someone has been shown to make you happier and more motivated to achieve your fitness goals. When you exercise with a partner, strenuous physical activities can be more tolerable,” says MediCard president Dr. Nicky Montoya.

Here are some exercises to try with your workout buddy:

Rock Climbing. Want to up the ante of your fitness regimen while getting a total body workout? Try rock climbing. It is a full body workout that pushes you to use your entire body to climb a wall. Rock climbing has loads of benefits – it builds muscle, increases endurance, reduces stress, and boosts brain function. In addition, rock climbing teaches you to trust your partner. He is tasked to anchor you to the ground, give enough rope for you to move on to the next handhold and foothold, and keep you safe if you make a misstep.

Cycling. Make cycling more enjoyable by bringing your partner or best friend along! Did you know that an hour of vigorous cycling can burn between 590 to 930 calories? It’s definitely a great way to help both of you lose weight, increase cardiovascular fitness, decrease stress levels and strengthen bones.

Zumba. Dance your way to a fit body and even better, do it with your pal! Zumba is not only a fun and healthy way to bond, it is also a full body workout that burns fat, boosts your mood and increases confidence. In addition, Zumba also works for every age and is a great opportunity to meet people with the same goal as you.

Hiking. Want to see the beauty of nature and work out at the same time? Then hiking is for you and your significant other. Hiking gives you numerous health benefits such as improved blood pressure and blood sugar levels, increased bone density and a strengthened core. Hiking with a partner for your safety is also a good reason why you need someone to accompany you, especially if you’re going through a remote and challenging trail. On top of that, it is also more enjoyable to have someone to share the awesome views with!

Yoga. For a low-impact and relaxing workout with your partner, enroll in a yoga class. By doing the physical poses of yoga, a stronger and more flexible body can be achieved. Yoga allows the mind to be calmer and more focused. It also provides the means to attune the body, thus improving overall health. Yoga also increases circulation, slows heart rate and lowers blood pressure.

Try yoga at the MediCard Lifestyle Center, one of the most convenient fitness and wellness sanctuaries in the metro, The MediCard Lifestyle Center has Surya Fitness Yoga, which offers hatha, vinyasa, ashtanga, and basic yoga classes.

Visit MediCard Lifestyle Centre at 51 Paseo De Roxas cor. Sen Gil

TravelBook.ph unveils better commission rates for Affiliates

Affiliates now have increased chances of earning more!

 

As part of TravelBook.ph’s plan to increase the number of affiliate partners and to provide them with better deals, the company has launched a new commission structure for its Affiliate Program that makes it easier for them to earn more.

 

For starters, with the new set of commission rates, affiliate partners only need to have more than five (5) completed transactions to increase their earnings from 40 to 45%. This is a huge improvement from the old structure, where affiliates need to have at least 50 completed transactions to get the 45% commission rate.

 

Getting the highest rate of 65% is also way easier with the new commission structure—from the requirement of 1,000 or more completed transactions, it is now down to just 51. The requirements of the other commission rates have also been greatly lessened.

16780548_120300002147298568_1276454429_n.jpg

 

This new commission structure from TravelBook.ph also offers better rates compared to other affiliate programs. Some hotel booking websites offer a minimum of just 25 to 35% commission rates (compared to 40% from TravelBook.ph) and a maximum of just 40 to 60% (compared to 65% from TravelBook.ph). In addition, the requirements are more difficult to achieve: affiliates need to have 500 to more than 1,000 completed transactions to reach the highest commission rate (compared to just 51 from TravelBook.ph).

16810796_120300002180902509_573080536_o.jpg

Sign up now to be an affiliate partner by visiting http://affiliate.travelbook.ph. Aside from enjoying the best commission rates, you will also have exclusive perks such as free out of town trips, special promos, and trainings from digital marketing professionals!
