[launch of BLUE WATER DAY SPA brand ambassadors & signature spa treatments]

Spa indulgence.

Such has been in my thought bubble these days. :)

Ever since I turned 50, those body aches & pains keep popping up rather frequently. It comes with age, they say. And it does not help that I have my hands full being a wife, mommy & daughter, maintaining two households while looking after my elderly mom on weekends. That is why, my body (& mind) cry out for a relaxing, stress-relieving spa treatment.

I have been to spas before, from the simple & affordable to the more elaborate & pricey ones. But there is one place I have heard of before but yet to try.


[i guess i am back & why the hiatus is over]

I am back to blogging! :)

As I type away this first blog post after my self-imposed almost 3-year hiatus, it still feels kinda 'unreal' to be doing this again. I have been meaning to get my blogging groove back but the busy-ness of the last two years (since my youngest started college) made it impossible for me to do so. I had a lot of excuses, from the mundane to the valid ones. But after reading some of the blogs I follow & seeing the IG posts of events covered, I suddenly realized I have kept myself out of the loop for so long & how much I missed the blogging life.

So much has happened since my last post - from reaching that milestone age of 50, being a mompreneur, living in a halfway house  on weekdays, getting on travel adventures with the fam,  to seeing a prelude to our life as empty nesters. These alone, I know, can fill up a long queue of stories to tell.

Can't wait to share them all with you. I hope with this starting-over, I can get you engaged to read this blog again and go on that journey with me. :)
