We’re all into saving for a rainy day, but there are times when you really need to just go out, let loose, and have fun. Enjoy the fruits of your labor with these seven indulgent ideas, because you definitely deserve the pampering!
1. Shop at a community fair that sells premium hand-crafted products.
While it may be true that specialty products may be more expensive than those sold commercially, they are oftentimes of better quality.
TRY: Drop by the Spark Project x Monti Market at Ayala Malls The 30th from March 17–19, 2017. This community market will feature premium products from small to medium enterprises including Gouache, Nipa Brew, Sidlan, Gugu, Hiraya Chocolates, Obrano, 175 Shirts, Steep Coffee, Habi Footwear, and Tsaa Laya. For more details check out their Facebook event page.
2. Trot around in really comfortable urban sneakers.
Pick a pair that doesn't only suit your lifestyle, but also one that you can walk the city with.
TRY: Classic craftsmanship and modern style meet in every pair of New Balance 247 Sport, available for P4,595 at New Balance Glorietta, The Athlete’s Foot Glorietta, SM Aura Premier Commonwealth, Sole Academy Bonifacio High Street, SneakPeek Shangri-La, and Capital UP Town Center.
3. Or head to work in shoes that put your feet's health first.
Give your feet the love it deserves with a pair of shoes that have been scientifically-proven to follow your arch.
TRY: Vionic shoes boast of built-in orthotic support for full-on comfort, stability, and balance. Visit Vionic branches at Ayala Malls The 30th, Uptown BGC, Greenbelt 3, Trinoma, Alabang Town Center, & Duty Free NAIA 3.
4. Pamper yourself with a calming and rejuvenating facial.
With how stressful your career gets, you may be forgetting about the importance of skin care. Give your face the treatment it deserves by allowing yourself a day at a reliable holistic skin clinic.

6. Have an enjoyable cup of quality tea.
There’s nothing like sitting back and relaxing at home with a nice cup of your favorite brew. Make it a total experience by putting your feet up and reading your favorite book.

7. Book out-of-town accomodations at a prestigious hotel.
When booking accommodations for an out-of-the-country trip, it’s almost always a must to stay in the nicest but cheapest places you can find. This time around, why not indulge and book at a premiere hotel? You’re on vacation, after all.
TRY: Flying to Hong Kong late this year? Book a room at The Murray, Hong Kong, a premiere Niccolo Hotel for “captains of industry and leaders in style”. This urban landmark will feature 336 suites, and will open at the fourth quarter of 2017.
