This weekend things have gotten interesting enough to warrant a blog post. Got another chance to attend Barrioquinto‘s latest one-man show just a few days before I head to Boracay. Before the SO and I attended the event I thought to myself my toenails looked crap!

I’m pretty low maintenance compared to most girls I know (People have told me to go to finishing school, too, a few times). I only go to salons maybe three to four times a year, in fact.

On the day before the event I went to Nail It along Pearl Drive. Heard it was opening again after a month long renovation, and since I was already within the area I figured why not drop by and have my quarterly nail fix. I’m pretty spontaneous-ish that way.

Nails with Orly in Catch the Bouquet

 I like this Orly nail paint’s pale shimmer. It’s called “Catch the Bouquet”.

I tried Nail It’s Pampering Hands service where the nail specialist soaked my hands in a tub; applied a minty, exfoliating scrub; and applied a layer of mud mask before a quick massage. The entire service was slightly soothing, though I had hoped it would happen a bit more slowly. I was hoping that the mud mask should remain on my hands and upper arms for a few minutes before rinsing. So I would not leave the salon with unkempt fingers and toes, I went ahead and tried the Coloring Manicure, Simply Pedicure and Coloring Pedicure services. (Here’s the Nail It Price List.)

The nail technicians really take care of your nails!

The following day I knew I was ready for the first item on my Saturdate with the SO – The Sony photography workshop #SummerGoals which happened to include a fashion photography segment.

 Here’s a nice steal from SM’s Surplus Shop – a zipfront linen dress.

Ended my Saturdate with a little fine art. We went to Shangri-La at the Fort for Provenance’s grand opening. Gallery opening coincided with renowned contemporary artist Andres Barrioquinto’s one-man show entitled “Nocturne”.

Just look at this!

Maybe someday I might be just as awesome as Andres Barrioquinto. Until then, I’ll just take comfort in my little experiences with life and art.
