From trading old habits with healthier ones and binging a series online after a hard day’s work to taking up yoga classes and taking ten minutes of your time to appreciate yourself in front of the mirror, a little act goes a long way. With the daily stresses of lives draining our spirits down to the last drop, we must not forget taking care of what matters the most: ourselves. And for someone like Kitty Bunag, who balances her tasks as a space stylist, photographer, jewelry designer, and a mother of two, she deserves to treat herself with a little self-love too from time to time.
“Self-care comes in all shapes and forms while constantly improving quality of life through finding balance — mind, body, and emotion — to nourish ourselves inside out is necessary.”
Creating to her heart’s content, there’s no doubt that the power mom knows how to take care of her craft, whether it’s bringing life into your workspace or catering to her wonderful kids. However, approaching her daily life with such zest and strong passion can sometimes lead her to getting lost in the moment, which is why we invited her inside our clinic for a quick breather. “I’ve been reading that caring for your body, mind, and spirit is your greatest and grandest responsibility. It’s about listening to the needs of your whole being inside out and honoring them,” says Kitty Bunag. “Realizing now that self-care involves more than just taking time out to watch my favorite reruns of Friends (lol), I recently met Cara Laser Skin Care who came to my rescue!”
As part of our ongoing campaign to shine the spotlight on powerful women and men who display balance between their careers, passions, and self-love, we welcomed Kitty Bunag into the Cara family to share with her the Cara experience, starting with our Exilis Elite Skin Tightening and Contouring. “Within these pretty walls is where the magic happens, in the form of world-class, non-invasive restorative treatments,” she shares of her experience. “Self-care comes in all shapes and forms while constantly improving quality of life through finding balance — mind, body, and emotion — to nourish ourselves inside out is necessary.”
Please introduce yourself.
I’m Kitty Bunag. I’m a hardworking momma of two — a space stylist, photographer, and jewelry designer.
What is a typical day like for you?
I wear many different hats throughout the day. I usually toggle between meetings, sourcing, job site inspections, occasional shoots, and mommy duties. 🙂
Can you give us tips on how to design mindful spaces?
Tell a story. Decoratively display your treasures. Once an object has more weight than a mere material possession, there is substance and a story can be told.
Your space. Your rules. Create the kind of layers you’d love to see everyday. Mismatch. Defy proportions.
Take a breather. Go for a walk. Practicing mindfulness and losing track of time for a while helps us appreciate our surroundings and all we have deeply.
“Eat right, hydrate, exercise, and take extra care for your skin! But more than anything, keeping a happy and positive disposition in this tough world is the best way to stay fresh and youthful.”
How do you practice Self-Love?
With the many things I have on my plate daily, making time for myself is essential. I love going on coffee breaks in nice shops. I love getting a massage. I go on travel break when I can. On top of all that, eating right and exercising are absolutely necessary too.
What was your favorite thing about the treatment?
I’m so amazed with the Exilis Elite face and body treatments. The effects were immediate. My skin felt tighter and seemed radiant. The treatments were comfortable and soooo relaxing too!
Do you have any tips on staying Fresh and Youthful?
Eat right, hydrate, exercise, and take extra care for your skin! But more than anything, keeping a happy and positive disposition in this tough world is the best way to stay fresh and youthful.
We believe that self-love comes from within and radiates outward. We hope to reach out to women and men and make them feel happy and confident in their own skin by treating them right.
This is just the start of her Cara journey, and we look forward to hearing more stories from the power mom.
The Exilis Elite is a non-invasive body contouring, slimming, and skin tightening treatment that utilizes combined radiofrequency and ultrasound technology to send controlled heat into the deep tissues. New production of collagen is triggered by the heat, leaving your skin slimmer, tighter, smoother, and more youthful.
