Island Hopping (Samal Island)

Summer's over but in a tropical country like the Philippines it will always feel like summer. 
I'm glad I live in a place where it's only 10 minutes drive from the beach.

This summer we went sailing with the local ride called "bangka".
As much as I love the drink-on-my-hand-feet-on-the-sand shore scene, I'm also into this island hopping adventure thing.
I'll run down the reasons why.
I just love the cool wind while sailing -- and oh not to mention its dramatic effect on this photo lol.
All aboard and ready to sail!
Just for a matchy-matchy outfit
Yes that's boyfriend's Oakley Xquared flash lens. Sailing with him on the Islands surrounding our very own Davao City. 
Chillin like a villain
His favorite pair of adventure gear. Ughhh I don't know what's with this combo that this is always his go to wear when we go for adventures. Just a little trivia he has a collection of board shorts and he's more brand conscious than me.
Beach outing will never be complete without this one -- well at least for us who loves to cook and grill and of course eat :))
Basically this is what Island Hopping adventure life is "Sail-swim-cook-eat-rest/sleep- sail(to the next destination) then repeat", its as cool as that.

Perfect thirst quencher on a perfect view shared with my chubby boo ( peace billyboy haha) 
When in a beautiful beach like this, I just can't help to pose :)) Anyway I'm a beach bum and I always find beach to be one of the best getaways especially after stressful moments in life.

At our backs is the Beautiful Pearl Farm Beach Resort. Hello there pearl farm thank you for the 3days and 2nights accommodation :)

To all my readers out there just a little reminder, it's not bad to have fun once in a while especially when you know that you deserve it. 
Let's enjoy life guys! 
Talk to you on my next post.

Touchdown Bohol

Hello! Its been awhile. How was your summer going?
Last week I went to Cebu and Bohol together with Billy and his family. It's my second time to go there. As much as I wanted to share to you about it I'm afraid that will have to wait, to make way for this long over due travel post. This post will be about my first time, this took place late part last year around October.
 My family and I went to Bohol a week before the magnitude intensity 7 hit the place. It was my first time there, also I consider myself blessed that I got to see the beauty of Bohol before that heart-breaking tragedy happened. We stayed there for 3days and 2 nights. We spent the first day getting to know some of the relatives and then we attended a concert late at night. On our second day we went to some tourist spots and that's what I'm going to share to you :)

 Pardon me for my super duper laid back outfit (pambahay ootd). Initially I've planned to wear sundress but one of my cousins advised me not to; second when we saw a souvenir shop we bought different items such as shirts -- of course I got one shirt for myself too. I immediately used it, I figured there's no better time to wear that statement shirt than that day and in that place --so tadaaa.... Besides, fashion is one way of self expression right? And that shirt just says it all. :))

The weather had been bipolar but nothing had stopped us from having our touristy mode on. We went up to Mt. Carmen to see the chocolate hills and I'm glad I did the right choice to be in the most comfortable outfit.
We decided to walk until we reached that place. I thought that's it but to my surprise we still have to climb a very steep stairs to reach the peak. It was grueling but worth it.
My mom said it's prettier during summer 'cause it turns brown but nonetheless it was nothing short of a breathtaking view.

Bohol will always have a special place in my heart and I will keep coming back that's for sure <3

Keep posted about my recent travel to Bohol-- more places and more detailed promise! :)

Blue Lines

heels: Ichigo

This would have to be the last outfit shot with my very long ombre hair. I chopped my hair a week ago 'cause mr. sun's powerful glaze is becoming unbearable. Last year I have been very abusive of my hair, rebonded twice, dyed five times, chopped four times and then there I lost track of the blower and iron sessions. This year I promised to myself I will engage more into products that will nourish my hair such as hot oil, biolage and the hunt goes on in finding products that will revitalize my dead hair. Also I vowed I will never dye my hair ever again, I'll just let the color go down ala ombre style haha.

All you gals out there take good care of your hair simply because it's the crown and glory of every girl.

Havaianas Obrigada 2014

The Day was dressed for a celebration as Martish Marketing Company --the exclusive sub-distributor of Havaianas in Southern and Eastern Mindanao, held 'Obrigada 2014' at the Northcrest Resort Ballroom last March 12 2014.

Martish has once again bested itself in preparing for 'Obrigada 2014'. Known for sophistication in organizing themed parties, Martish adorned the venue with shabby chic elements, making it feel and looks like a picture taken on a bright summer day! 
Consistent to the light and summery feel of the occasion, plates of Cheese Savory, Creamy STuffed Eggs, Vegetable STicks with Anchovy Dressing, and Meatballs with Holiday Dip were passed around as guests arrived and settled.
'Obrigada', which means 'thank you' in Portuguese, is the company's annual gathering of Davao's top media personalities, and key influencers. "Because this afternoon is a bigger celebration than past years', it just means that our hearts are ever so thankful for the support that you have given through the years," Marga Nograles remarked in her welcome message to the guests.
The left photo corner was fashioned after living room with a pastel pink striped wall and white french windows. Right across was a line of  white merry-go-round horses held up by pastel pink, pastel blue, and pastel green tubes. At the center was a white wall bedecked with kites pinned as if they were actually flying among cottony blue clouds. The runway looked like a real garden with its green grass mat and white picket fences.
 What made this year's 'Obrigada' more special is the launch of the Havaianas 2014 Collection. A boutique show was staged to parade the highlights of 2014. One by one, the models appeared on the runway donning Havaianas Top, Slim, and High Fashion Styles in flashing colors of neon pink, neon yellow, neon orange.neon green, and the staple nude, gold, black, and chocolate brown hues.

From the venue to the decors, to the food, to the fashion show, 'Obrigada 2014' has trademarked a complete Havaianas package-- a dainty celebration, excelling in its details, filled with the warmth of thanksgiving, and the laughter of its Havainactico guests.

Thank you to Ms. Marga, Martish, and Teejay.
