On the side
Back to the time I redecorated my room a third time and saved enough money to purchase that classic acrylic chair I fell in love with. The room looks a bit different now with more things on my side table though. This blog needs some serious updating! ;)
Last Thursday, Nico made a sweet (literally!) surprise visit. And he told me to hurry out to catch the sun for a picnic in the park. Happy I can finally cross that off my list! Apparently, he brought so much junk food. Chips, popcorn, Snickers and Reese’s ice cream (yes ice cream bars), even chicken nuggets. We’re so unhealthy. Next time, I’m thinking iced coffee and s’mores!
So grateful for rest days like this. Thank you for the surprise sunset session, Nico! :)
Hello! Yes, I tend to disappear lot haha. The past two months were swamped with projects that even sleep was a gift! The upside was that before the super busy weeks were a bunch of workation trips. Hoping this summer will be packed with it too!
1. Costa Pacifica, Baler
The TSO team went over to Costa Pacifica Baler, Aurora to shoot an AVP for the beautiful resort. Breakfast buffet was the best (s’mores pizza!). We also hiked up to Dimatubo Falls and climbed the 600-year-old Balete tree. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the chance to surf again, unlike Jing (our master editor) who skipped breakfast for the waves!
2. Malasimbo, Mindoro
The week after Baler, we took a trip to Punta Fuego to cover the Malasimbo Arts and Music Festival. I tried out kesong puti (one of the famous Malasimbo snacks) for the first time and I was immediately hooked. Another highlight was when Jose Gonzales sang Heartbeats at the festival. He brought the crowd to tears!
3. Momo Beach House, Bohol
This one was a real 3-day vacation! Patty took Ja, Marge and I out to a quaint boutique resort called Momo Beach House in Bohol for a girly getaway in the middle of our busy March. It sure felt like home with the friendly staff, cozy reading nooks, yummy all-day breakfast, and the fact that we had the entire place to ourselves!
A Few Favorite Things
Forever21 Dotted Sheer Top | RayBan specks | iPad mini | Forever21 mint clutch | Cotton On pants
After I found my trusty black rim glasses cracked in half in my bag one day, I was determined to find a better pair. And found one I did at a weekend signature sale across our office last December. The most perfect pair of RayBans! I got it at Php3,000 from an original price of Php10,000! Not bad at all. I usually wear contacts, but with these specks, I wouldn’t mind a day or two out wearing them.
I’ve always had a penchant for black and white. From the scheme of my room to my closet - brimming with neutrals! Don’t think I’ll ever be veering away from the classics. But I do need more hints of color in my wardrobe. Something to be more adventurous with this year.
