On little unnecessary things we buy

I was clearing some space in my wardrobe when I saw those pins lying in a drawer. I remember going like "omg that's soo cute" when I got each one of them.. but I have absolutely no use to them.

Do you do that too?

Rouge Parfait?

When it comes to Hermes, a red birkin is the first thing that pops in my mind..But there are so many variations, different shades of red which look lighter or darker depending on whatever leather you decide to go with.. This fall there's a new red called Venetian red (more brown) and for ss10 theres a new coral-red called Bougainvillea.. All fabulous, depending on how you define ur perfect shade of red..

So what's a true red to you?

Breath, from within

What: oxy-capsule

Where: Akaru spa at the Aviation club

Why: its the most relaxing experience ever, for 30 mins u lie down in a capsule with oxygen being pumped into it, a heated pad to lie on with soothing vibrations and music. You can almost feel the oxygen filling your pores and soothing your knots. Feels like ur literally floating on air.

Two For The Road

An Audrey Hepburn movie I didn't know about! A romantic flick filmed in various parts of france about love and the difficulties it faces through marriage. From parenthood, infidelity and marital tensions.. The movie says it all. A la mode, bien sur.

On self preservation

We put boundaries not because we fear others but because we understand that our individuality is what makes us whole, balanced and in control. It is this instinct of self preservation that filters out intruders onto our "personal space" and is of great importance to some.

We value discretion because we value ourselves. Let that thought sink in for a while.

Senseasia, the palm.

Signature treatments, fabulous therapists (from the village) and a serene relaxation area.

All that place needs is a wet area and it would be perfect.

Recommended: the body polish and relaxing massage combo.. The ultimate spa experience.
