My Fair Share

Mi esposo and I were having rounds of vanity fair. Last Friday, he treated me for warts removal as a belated Mother’s Day gift. He on the other hand, had a relaxing massage as my advanced Father’s Day gift. Today, I had my nails done, while he made our friend’s nails. Were just silly, like that. Lol 


Yes, we’re doing our nails in the office. But before you judge us, it was just pass 6am. We were at the office at exactly, 0602 PST. No work interruption, what so ever. 

Thinking about this back-to-back vanity fair, I couldn’t help recall that about 5 years back, the esposo and I were also busy pampering ourselves for our wedding. I remember I made him had some facial mask while I was having warts cautery – which was a bad idea since the scars needed a little more time to completely wear-off from my face. I also had my nails done by a professional (for the 1st time) a day before the big day. It deemed useless because I decided to wear gloves on the last minute. You’re in the right track if you’re thinking I suck in the vanity department. lol I am not really vain, as a person. I cannot even be considered a low-maintenance girl. 

But now, I think I need to take care of myself more. I’m a little pass 30 (okay, 33 on October) and I know that age would dare my wash-and-wear attitude. Now, I’m starting to use moisturizer and sun-block. I am applying little lipstick and concealer-foundation at work.  I am starting to take Vitamin C and Iron Supplement. I have to maintain youthful skin to radiate a youthful glow - for kiddos to boast, mi esposo to appreciate and most especially for me to feel good. 

PS: I am seriously considering Manicure Monday like BC Blogger Tet. Lol

  4. I'm older than you. But I haven't follow a strict regiment yet but I know I should.

    I badly need some wart cautery but I could not find yet a good clinic with reasonable price here in Bohol.

  14. I can't imagine my husband doing my nails...(I guess I would see a doctor after he had done it sa dami ng sugat ko.) Its nice to know that some couples can do so much for each other even in vanity. I say...cool and susyal! :)

  25. hahaha! just thought of it, most of the members of the BC Bloggers are over 30 already. hhmmm and most of the ladies are gearing towards beauty products to make them more beautiful and perhaps conceal the age. hahaha! Well with regards to mani/pedi me and my wife also find time having that. Of course I don't put any colors on my nails but just the thought of being relieved and cleaned is relaxing enough.

    1. Not really to conceal age, but to help us look better. Wala nang sariling sikap ang skin pag tumatanda eh, kailangan na ng tulong.hehe
