It gives us a special thrill to see an entrepreneur from BF Homes become a success story.  Sheila Amora and her baby, Funky Plum Vintage has come a long way, indeed, from the first time we featured her last November.  We are happy to have been there with Sheila almost from the start and to see her grow as an entrepreneur.  

Starting from a small shop in the D-Square building in Phase 3, where she was bursting at the seams (pun intended) as her fame and clientele grew, she has since moved to a bigger space at The Pergola with another branch coming out soon.

In a little under a year, she has been riding a wave of accomplishments that has made Funky Plum close to being an overnight success, no mean feat in a very competitive industry.

And the mainstream media has taken notice, too.  Funky Plum is now styling broadcasters Mai Rodriguez-Morillo of ANC On-The-Scene and Amelyn Veloso of TV5 Balitang Tapat.   We will not be surprised if this is just the beginning of many more good things to come for this hardworking mother of two.

Recently, she posted on her Facebook page the mantra and philosophy of the late Steve Jobs, which to us, can sum up her own philosophy and the secret of her success:  "You've got to find what you love.  And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers.  Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work.  And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.  If you haven't found it yet, keep looking.  Don't settle.  As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.  And, like any great relationship, it just gets better as the years roll on.  So keep looking until you find it.  Don't settle."

Next to putting on a lipstick, having polished and lacquered nails seems to be the next best thing to feeling dressed when you're in a hurry and on a budget.  The sight of manicured fingers and pedicured toes is always a morale-booster and eye-candy at the same time. 

Is it any wonder that nail spas and salons are mushrooming everywhere when it's both a guilty pleasure and an art all by itself. 

I had the pleasure of enjoying a thoroughly relaxing afternoon at Pamper Your Feet, a newly opened nail spa that easily and delightfully lived up to its name. 

Its lime green walls and black leather easy chairs give it a dark, edgy look but also a cocoon-like ambiance that embraces you and relaxes you, settling you down and away from the heat outside.  Cool samba music wafts softly as you sink into your chair. 

The nail technicians come and do their job quietly, efficiently, proficiently.  The atmosphere is professional and informal at the same time.  It's a world away from the neighborhood parlor of the past with its in-your-face music, frenetic frenzy buzzing around you, and loud chattering voices of haircutters and tv denizens alike competing for attention.

I get a Pamper Me Foot Spa.  It puts me in such a good mood I opt for a hot pink nail color.  I have to say that Pamper Your Feet has stamped its mark on what pampering is all about and their nail work is excellent.  Three weeks later, my toes are still as attractively colored as the day I stepped out of their spa.

It is a relatively new nail spa so it is understandably putting its best foot forward so to speak. This early, the shop deservedly has garnered its fair share of clients and will continue to do so if they maintain this level of standard.
