Of Short Vacation and Personal Style

A weekend spent with family in one of the most relaxing places in the world - the beach resort - is indeed a gratifying experience. We seldom give ourselves plain R&R.  Last weekend's brief, yet blissful and fun, getaway was planned several weeks ago and the days had finally come.

This is our second time to enjoy an overnight stay at Plantation Bay Resort and Spa in Marigondon Mactan Island.

By the way, last September 26, 2014, Plantation Bay Resort and Spa's Facebook page has featured the picture above as their Guest Photo of the Week, see HERE.  Thank you Plantation Bay for the feature!

I prefer this resort than anywhere else from the long list of beach resorts here in Cebu, since I will always feel safe swimming at their man-made lagoon with salt water on it plus exploring the landscaping of the resort is extremely worth enjoying.

Plantation Bay Resort and Spa is set in 11 hectares of secluded grounds yet only one hour (when traffic is bad) from Cebu City, Plantation Bay offers one of the largest privately-owned waterways in the world, with the clean elegance of colonial-plantation architecture.

Even on a crisp "summery" vacation in September, remember always to inject personal style.  Be fashionable even when on a beach resort.

I packed my light and breezy outfits and those favorite footwear which are also perfect for this beach outing.

My personal style always involves COLOR COORDINATION.

See my peach girly motif above - from the top, to the skater skirt and sunnies.  I declared just lately that I am into peach / coral / salmon shades.

The matchy separates outfit reminded me of my salad days (when my sister and I looked like twins as our mom would buy us matchy top and bottoms in floral prints).  What I like in this outfit is it is in black and white.  This bejeweled thongs is my current favorite as it is unexpectedly comfortable and definitely chic.  This is my first time to finally stepped on it again since I was in my ''teen'' years.  As I am into color coherence,  the sunnies' color must match the b/w look.

This flouncy mullet collared dress in hot magenta tropical print screams summer!  I am still into the mullet trend despite having died out in the runways.  

This look is somewhat minimalist, since I am only wearing one apparel, plus the thin long necklace (not chunky ones), square lens sunglasses and trying on the platforms trend, which sells like hotcakes in Hong Kong.

If you happen to plan a weekend getaway here in Cebu, I highly recommend Plantation Bay Resort and Spa, it's indeed a resort in a class of its own!

Special thanks to C2 for making this short vacation more possible.

Live in style, everyday!

A Dozen Unfiltered Reasons Why Bangkok,Thailand Is Always My Place To Be

People nowadays have abundant, diverse resources that traveling outside one's home country has been a typical option for holidays or even for a long-weekend vacation.  And if you are from the Philippines, the accessible places and, by fact, the more affordable options would be those destinations nearby such as Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand.

Yes, Thailand! My second favorite country, of course, next to the Philippines.  The country has a massive land area. But with the four times that I have been there, most of my adventures were spent only in Bangkok. In spite of it, I know that there are still numerous places to explore in the city of Big Mango.
I have overflowing stories to share about my trips to Bangkok, with brimming enthusiasm.  I have had several detailed blog posts about my trips since 2011, 2013 and 2014.  Although this post and the pictures you will be seeing are #throwback shots, I hope to still provide you with an overview of what the city has to offer and be able to…

How To Be Comfy Yet Chic to a Winter Vacation in Hong Kong

I always desire to have a winter vacation in Hong Kong.  Though, I actually have experienced it last 2013 with my family, see HERE,  but such desire never ceases and is always haunting me. Whenever December arrives, the hopes reach its acme. Thankfully,  January of this year, my wishful thinking and flaming desires turned to reality, again!

Why have a Vacation on Winter time? 
Despite I easily get cold feet and hands when temperature drops, I am so in love with winter time as it provides an entirely fresh sense of being assuredly away from home, which screams, you're on vacation! And, the fact that winter does not visit the Philippines makes the season more exciting.  More so, dressing-up for a winter season is such a fun and stimulating activity.  Even the thought of wearing my boots certainly thrills me.

Blending In With My Personal Style + Style Tips!

Transferring to a new location have initially distressed me. Everything was unaccustomed and I was back to zero, career-wise. Then, I was also in direly wanting to activate my Fashion Styling skills. The artist in me had a compelling fighting spirit. Why be afraid, why hide, why remain dormant? So, I went online and befriended creative minds alike.  And guess what? Last quarter of this year, I have successfully made my very first fashion styling collaboration with amazing Filipino talents in the field of photography here in Doha, Qatar and finally got acquainted with my online-turn-real-life friends: Eds Dela Cruz and Christine Lyn Espinosa.

Part of resettling is the embracing of foreign culture and adapting to their lifestyle which includes dressing up according to their norms.  If you have been following this blog, you might have known by now that my personal style has permanently gravitated to a direction that always had a touch of modesty. I prefer covering my extremities, wearing …
