Evenings At Gloria Hotel Dubai: Spa + Dinner

I love a good massage. But what I like the most are the foot massage and a full body massage. My love for a good body massage started at home, with my mom. Whenever I am feeling under the weather or have an aching limb, my mom would heat up some oil, grill some calamansi (calamansi is a type of citrus fruit found in the Philippines) squeeze the juice of the calamansi into some warm oil, mix it and apply it all over my body before giving me the most comforting massage. It never fails to put me to sleep and just like magic, heals me. My mom lives miles away from me now and I don't have that luxury anymore. Good thing, we have plenty of spas in Dubai whom I can turn to when I need some pampering. The latest one I've tried was the one located at Gloria Hotel It's called  Dreamworks Spa !

Wellness Family Affair at Zen the spa

Before we headed to our month-long vacation to the Philippines at the end of July, Ferald and I went to take the kids at Zen the spa for a swim, yes for a swim and I kid you not.

After ensuring the kids are comfortable at

Sort Out Your Salon Appointments with VANIDAY

If Zomato is your go to app for all restaurants, bars and dining places in Dubai and Uber is for all your private transportation needs, what is your go to app for all your beauty and wellness needs? Did I hear you say VANIDAY? For me too!  VANIDAY (vaniday.ae) is a wonderful app (available on both IOS or Android) that I discovered recently. It is user friendly and booking a salon has never been this easy. With over 700 member salons (ladies and gents), spa and wellness centers around Dubai in their sleeves with actual customer ratings, you can never go wrong with this app. My hair needed some tlc and I used VANIDAY to book an appointment with Sky Star Salon in Al Rigga Road for cellophane color. Sky - the salon owner did my hair before and I was happy with my curls.  I don't have Sky Star Salons telephone number though yet I picked up my phone, tap my VANIDAY app and booked away. All you need to do is 1. Discover. 2. Book. 3. Enjoy. How easy is that?  I kn

The White Room

I've recently discovered one of the best salons in Dubai Marina area, The White Room Beauty and Spa Lounge . It's now on top of my list when I want some highly efficient, affordable and luxurious pampering. My appointment was at 7 pm on a Thursday but due to work load, I needed to call them to adjust it at a later time which they accommodated even with a very tight and busy schedule. When I arrive, the staff greeted me with a smile and offered some refreshments. The lady who assisted me showed me a large collection of nail polish to choose from. I picked Esse leading lady and it suites my hands perfectly. We entered a stunning white room, it was immaculate. I don't have a photo of it though, it felt awkward to take photos with other ladies having their hands and feet done and with just a towel wrap around the waist The pedicure started with a warm foot soak, scrub and foot and leg massage, it felt heavenly. The same for the hands follow suit
