Against the Splash

Hello guys! Last week was hella crazy and busy work-wise. Imagine working on 5 decks on top of my usual load - that’s pretty insane. You can also add my makalat na feelings, wandering everywhere for some weird reason. I missed blogging and I’m so glad to be back after 7 days! Hoping for lighter and happier days ahead. My immune system’s slowly giving up on my lifestyle. :p

Anyway, sharing with you a quick outfit post perfect for casual days!

Have you ever gone window-shopping, see clothes on mannequins and suddenly think of someone who would wear that ensemble? Something like “This is very Arnie!” or what have you :p My friends told me that whenever they see chiffon or sheer tops, they’d often associate me with those. I’m guilty! Nothing beats its class and comfort. You can even pair it with almost anything! :)

Similar with this top from SM Woman, you can style it in other different ways. Wear it with pants and heels and now you’re meeting-ready, or with a skirt for a weekend brunch, or shorts that can go on casual days. Just make sure you’re wearing the right bra or bandeau to complete the look.

Since I go less on colorful clothes, I try to spice up my garb with quirky accessories. My minimalist self can’t handle loud blings anymore, but this splashing purse from SM Accessories is too irresistible! :)

Don’t get deceived by its size. Albeit small-looking, I love how it can fit my essentials: powder, lipstick, wallet, phones and powerbank!

That’s it for now! Wishing you a beautiful week ahead! ♥♥♥

Endless Summer Passport

My mermaid self’s wishing for an endless summer! And Nothing But H2O made me feel even more excited to hit the beach again because of this awesome treat for their loyal customers. Here comes the Endless Summer Passport, a loyalty and frequency card that rewards the brand lovers with Php1,800 worth of gift certificates with a fully stamped passport. This is Nothing But H2O’s way of saying thank you to all their loyal fans for nearly two decades now. :)

YOU can get the Endless Summer Passport with a minimum single receipt purchase of Php2,000. You’ll earn sticker stamps with every single receipt purchase of the same amount, too! Customers may also bring a friend to avail the Endless Summer Passport to get two sticker stamps instead of just one!

Why do you need the Endless Summer Passport?

Nothing But H2O is a tropical retail mecca of a growing number of beach lifestyle product offerings. Think:


Anemone’s their house brand, designed and crafted in the Philippines, inspired by the beautiful beaches and the endless summer lifestyle in our country. Unlike other brands, you can mix and match Anemone’s old collections to the newest ones for an instant swimsuit update!

With Anemone, you’re guaranteed that your swimsuits and rash guards have high quality fabrics, exclusive prints, meticulous construction and detailing, and a whole lot of versatility.


Nothing But H2O is the exclusive distributor of TOMS in the Philippines. TOMS isn’t your basic shoe brand, it is more of a GIVING company than a retail company. With every product you purchase, TOMS gives back. A pair of shoes sold, a child in need gets a new pair.


Surfers know Zinka by heart! This brand provides non-chemical, colored nosecoats that offers total block from the sun’s harmful rays.

These brands and more inside Nothing But H2O! Complete the sticker stamps, get rewarded, because you deserve it! ;)

Left My Heart at Cebu

Aaand now I’m blogging about our last day in Cebu. It’s been 3 weeks since this trip but all I want right now is to escape Manila and go back to this beautiful city again. So many great memories that I’ll carry with me forever. ♥ ♥ ♥ 

We were pressed with time on our last day. We woke up late and ran to the grocery for last minute errands before following our Day 3 itinerary. Good thing our hotel’s just a few walks away from Ayala Center Cebu. All our plotted eats were located there - Casa Verde and Tablea!

Cebu Day 3 Itinerary
10:00AM - Late Hotel Breakfast
11:30AM - Grocery and Pasalubong Shopping at Ayala Center Cebu
1:00PM - Lunch at Casa Verde
2:30PM - Dessert at Tablea
4:10PM - Arrival at the Airport
4:30PM - Flight Back to Manila
6:00PM - Arrival at NAIA

White out, like always! Told you my closet’s filled with whites, and I won’t get rid of them ever! :p You just have to be extra careful when wearing such ensemble especially when you eat and travel. My friends would always tease me whenever I use tissues as bibs every meal. I’m that cautious so I won’t leave stains!

Anymoo, after errands, we headed to Casa Verde for lunch. We’ve already tried Casa Verde here in Manila but they say it’s different when you try it from its original home. ♥ Both good!

Joed and I are huge fans of ribs! Casa Verde did not disappoint, especially with its mouth-watering ribs in enormous serving sizes!

After the filling lunch, we walked to Tablea for their famous hot chocolate and coffee. I was having a terrible headache then, but surprisingly I felt better after my first few sips. Really nothing a good drink can’t fix! :)

I think we relaxed too much that we arrived late at the airport. Our flight’s at 4:30PM, we came in around 4:10PM - stewards were already escorting everyone inside the plane. Muntik na! Hahahaha!

Everything went perfect during this trip. I’m more than thankful for all the amazing things that happened in Cebu. My heart is filled with happiness and love! ♥

Hoping you’ll have the same awesome experience in your next trip! Tell me about it in the comments section below. :)
