#GetWhipped for Free!!

So I have been telling you guys in my previous posts that I am trying to scrimp a bit on my expenses as part of my lil project for myself;and to make up for my expenses for the earliest part of the year. I have lessen my “pamper” time activities. But, I still do have it when I need it and deserve it! But, I try to be fair and refrain from giving in to the voice that says I deserve it everyday hahaha. Otherwise, I will not fulfill my goal.

This weekend is the time I NEED to go to the nail salon. I only have my nails fixed by the salon for my pedi since I do not trust myself doing it haha. And I had some minor incidents before wherein it was not properly cleaned, got wounded and I had to put a bandage huhu. So, I am willing to pay a lil extra for that. Buuuuuuut, this post is not about that hahahaha..Going back, this post is about my recent waxing experience for my lower leg (which I am supposed to get as a package with my nails service. Since I know that it is also really the time to do so lol. 

My husband suggested to try the salons we saw last week and we chanced upon – which is Whipped! They offer purely waxing and body scrub services. We went to their Shaw (Cherry Foodarama) branch. Annnnd just when my husband was about to treat me..surprise! Whipped Sugar Waxing and Body Scrub salon offers free trial of services they offer! And just what their poster says..THIS IS NOT A DRILL!!

So it pays to have generous husbands as sometimes they can give their supposed treats absolutely free! LOL! 

I had to do my nails separately but it is totally fine. And even I wanted to keep this as a secret – so I can always book with them to get a schedule (kidding!!), I am sharing this to all of you. You can try their services for free up to October 15! I had my lower leg done and eyebrows for waxing. As if I havent said it yet, it was for FREE! Whole body packages for the waxing and scrub services are not included in the promo. But, it is still awesome right?!

It is actually my first time to try the cold wax or sugaring and I love it! It has less pain for me and it is organic. 

And I also have a good news for my South friends..yay!! I am glad cause I love the south and will be a forever southie..’cause the attendant told me they also have an ongoing promo with their Southpark branch..so yay!!!

Their flagship branch at the BGC (Burgos Circle area) also offers their signature services but is not included in the promo.

Whipped Salon branches with promo:

2nd level, SM Cherry Foodarama, Shaw Blvd., Mandaluyong

GF, Ayala Southpark, National Highway, Muntinlupa


So I realized it’s been a year on the blog and working on it’s brand this month..Happy WonYear, TheWonderfulKind !!! 
This blog started as a passion project. I was blogging since 2008. But, I noticed that the things I wanted to share and take the time to write one are changing and evolving. So when I came back from a blog hiatus, I thought of creating TheWonderfulKind to be more “me”. This is with the purpose of sharing positivity through my own dining, travel experiences, inspirations, and happenings with the pursuit of life balance and celebration of me as a working woman. This is also hoping to share and learn with my readers, fellow bloggers, and the community. 
I am grateful for the people I met (virtually or not) along the way. Thankful to the brands and people who showed support. 
My blog/brand is a work in progress and it will continue to evolve. Please continue to show some love and support.


Of Homemade Burgers and Personal Projects

I have not blogged for a while so sorry for that especially when I got giddy to learn that there are readers from as far as Ireland who reads my personal and sometimes random musings. I have been busy with my new role at work – I am totally happy with it but is still adjusting. But, finally my random post on some baby personal projects is here. 

So we spent a chill Saturday night at home. My husband promised to make some “special” burgers for dinner. We have been dining out for most part of our week for several months now. And just this year, I committed to cut down again on restaurant food and incidentally expenses too (not necessarily food related) haha! So more relaxed nights at home will help me do that. Disclaimer: I am still taking baby steps so operative word is cut down 😆. The husband is also riding on this journey. So going back – the promised burger was better than the American diners’ burgers in town! Lol. I thought of quickly sharing the diy burger in this post squeezed in my random thoughts. Wow, me posting a recipe post?! Haha! Nah, not really. I do not know how to cook (frying not included haha). So, for people close to me I bet they will have some bubble thoughts in there heads saying – really?! sharing a post on a homemade burger? Haha!  

Well, I am not going to really share the recipe of the burger patties itself since according to my husband it is made from secret recipes haha. You know, just in case he revives his food business. Wink,wink. But, just the steps on how he prepared it:

He just fried the homemade patties (yay!less processed);

Put on sliced cheese (can be feta for ahealthier choice)on top of the patties when the patties are almost cooked;

For the preparation of the buns – spread some cheese and toasted it while waiting for the patties to be cooked.

Then, before closing the bun with patties to make it a sandwich, put in some lettuce, condiments like mayo, ketchuo ( if you wish like organic, less sugar ketchup) and can add some tomatoes too.

His effort to make the burger so flavorful without buying the frozen patties in supermarkets and make it similar to our favorite burger joints made my heart melt. Aww. Haha. It was a simple dinner at home but it reminded me of the baby steps I am trying to do for my lil personal projects on cutting down expenses like dining out and on choosing fresher food. I still eat some instantly prepped meals when I am out but I am consciously cutting it for now. 

The reason I am sharing this random thought is also for accountability on my lil personal commitments/projects/goals. I What other personal projects do you have? But, the personal projects financial and also physical health, I shared earlier will do for now. It’s already September and I want to do something about it.
