Of the many different ways Gia and I like to bond, we have a few favorites.
We love to bake and eat sweets, and we love to pamper ourselves. We really value our girl time together. So this is why we were looking forward to our Orly Mother Daughter Pampering Date at Sophie’s Mom in McKinley Hill.
We both blocked off our entire Saturday so we could spend the day together.
Tonette’s daughter, Sophie, is known for loving everything and anything Japanese. So together they decided that they would sell their Japanese Mochi Ice Cream at the Assumption Fair. When they sold out all their Mochi before 12nn on the first day of the fair, Tonette found herself scrambling and baking cupcakes, just so that they would still have something to sell for the duration of the fair. This was back in 2010, and since then their business has expanded to sell delicious treats such as Truffled Mochi, Frozen Braso Ice Cream and of course the cupcakes that they are very well known for. Tonette shared how she and her daughters all play a part in the business. Sophie helps with product photos (and recently got into blogging as well), Steph helps with the running of the stores, and Sam likes to come up with the smoothie recipes. (Sam has been known to make a mean ice candy as well.)
Tonette would like to see more people utilize the space in her McKinley location. She envisions a “Crave, Create, and Celebrate” type of atmosphere in her bake shop that serves savories as well if that’s what pleases your palate.
But what was most pleasing for me and Gia was the time we spent together being pampered and having our nails done with a quality polish that we know very well. Orly is a fast drying polish (We need that if we are on the go!) that applies well with two coats, and is safe to use even on pregnant women.
Orly lacquer is free of DBP, Toluene, and Formaldehyde. The polish is known for the easy to use Gripper Cap, and provides streak-free coverage. It is also formulated with UV inhibitors to prevent fading and yellowing. This means it’s safe for everyone to use. Yes, safety is important…most especially with anything you put on your body, and this includes nail polish as well.
The Blush and Baked Collections are available full retail for only P385.00 per bottle. You can find Orly Nail Lacquers and treatments at all PUREBEAUTY stores. (Serendra, Trinoma, ATC, Harbor Point Subic, Landmark, Robinson’s, Gaisano, and PCX outlets.)
