Quick Southern Getaway

Image
Last Labor Day Weekend, we had an impromptu out of town trip to Alcoy with the family. We needed a break from stress, school and work and nothing can do that better than the beach. We spent a night at the Manawa Beach Resort. I must say that this quaint resort has the complete amenities any tourist would need.

If you like a spacious, comfortable and air-conditioned room, they just have the perfect rooms for you. Moreover, if you want to have a perfect view of the sunset and the sunrise, their man-made cliff will give you the best spot. All these at a very comfortable price!

Early morning by the beach is one of the many moments you should experience at least once in your life. While waiting for high tide and watching the sunrise, nothing is more soothing than hearing the sound of the waves crashing to the shores. By just the sound of it, your brain involuntarily lets go of your stress and anger you had in the past week.






Before we ended our trip in Alcoy, we made sure to stop by Tingko…

March Madness

Image
So the best friend and I had an impulsive spending on concert tickets. It was on March 5, 2017, that she actually messaged me telling to watch the Air Supply concert with her on Tuesday that same week. I was telling her that we should watch the concert but at the back of my mind, I was thinking about my savings. The tickets cost a fortune (considering us being nillionaires) and so it was quite a risk to spend thousand/s of peso for a two-hour show. Nevertheless, she prompted me on a peculiar way of thinking saying: THIS CONCERT IS ONCE IN A LIFETIME. WE HAVE TO WATCH IT BEFORE THE DUO GETS TOO OLD TO SING FOR A CROWD. And yes, the lame excuse made me say YES.
We had the tickets and we lined up for the show. We drank two cups of coffee before the show and we fangirled during and after the concert. We had videos in almost all their songs and we were singing the whole night through. But let me highlight some important parts of the show: the Opening number, the closing song and their tim…

Time and Tide | November Issue

Hello there! How are you? It has been a long time since I posted a new entry on the blog. I just have no time yet to create good blog entries to share. However, I have here raw photos on some of my "small" adventures in the past few weeks. They are not much but they are my definition of "simple" joys.

Keep scrolling and have fun reading :D


Beach in November
Last weekend (see: nov.26-27), my friend and I went up north for a quick weekend getaway. She was celebrating her birthday on a resort--it is called "The North Sky" and the place was great but not super "wow" kind of great. If you are looking for a short time out of the city, this could be the perfect place for you. It is probably a two-hour drive or so from Cebu. 





Romance Revisited with Jose Marie Chan
Last November 30- Jose Marie Chan had a concert at Waterfront Cebu to celebrate his 50th year in the music industry. With that I was expecting to hear all his timeless love songs that never fai…

This my friends, is my first official ever in my whole twenty-one years of existence! And you know what they say " once tasted, always wanted"---in this context, I was on the verge of vowing to live forever in the island and throw away all my #richandfamous goals. Bantayan Island is famous for its white sand beaches and crystal clear water and the moment I saw it, the first sentence I uttered was "PARADISE IS REAL!!". haha. Imagine I said it in the tone of "hail hydra" lol (s/0 to captain America: civil war). Okay, back to the topic, so there I was so amazed at how beautiful the beach was and how genius God is for creating this one piece of heaven on earth.

I took this photo in one of the islands we visited and I apologize if I forgot the name of the island. Just like Bantayan, the beach was heavenly and well the tide is unpredictable. But I do not mind at all swimming on the beach all day and frying my skin to dark brown. I saw this rock not far from w…

6 Must Have Stylish bags

Image
Hola! I am back with my weekly list of fashion favorites. This week, I will do a rundown of my 5 favorite bags and 1 folio bag.

I shall not keep you waiting. Here are some of my personal picks:
1. Tote bags
Before, I was not really a big fan of totes because I find it too boring and too simple. But now, when my grandmother gave me a new Calvin Klein tote bag, I learned to appreciate its beauty. I realized that the essence of a tote bag is to make your everyday easy. I mean, when I used my tote bag it was really light and even if it had a lot of things inside, it is not too bulky and heavy on my shoulder. This is the main reason why tote bags are my current obsession for my daily use.
2. Bucket bag When I first saw this bucket bag, I was not fully impressed by its design. However, what caught my attention was that there are bucket bags that are structured and made by good leather quality and that is what makes it look better. I am still on the pursuit of finding the perfect bag of thi…

It is summer and now I can write on the blog again! I am back with some posts that lingers on my mind these past few days and it is all about shoes, bags, beauty and so many more. I have tons of things to share to you about my latest obsessions and fashion trends you need to watch out for this year.

And I am here with my top picks for shoes that are timeless in their designs and does not fade through the season. Let us start the countdown, shall we?
1. Pointed Heels Probably, Jimmy Choo and Valentino are the two famous brands known for their classic pump shoes design. And personally, I love their designs. Before, I thought pointed toes pump shoes are for the old and employed but over the years, it has proven that they are more stylish than the platforms. I own quite a few pairs and I must say they make most outfits elegant and classy. Do you have one pair of pointed shoes in your closet? ;)

2. Chunky Heels So I am a downer for these kinds of shoes and that is because they make it e…
