Beach Haul

Our Boracay Trip was booked far before the actual date so I've got the luxury of time to think of what are the things that I should bring with me. I don't have that sexy, beach-y body that you can boast on by displaying it on the seashore while tanning your skin under the heat of the sun so I opt for an old-fashion beach attires for this trip.

Sleeveless and see-through tops plus shorts are the most that I could do so please excuse my primitive-being. So today I will be sharing the new things that I got for and from my Boracay Trip.

I got 3 pair of shorts and I enjoyed wearing them at the beach. Not too revealing but still blending in the surrounding! I just realized that all this 3 are of blue hue. Baby blue, blue and navy blue. Plus I've got a skirt that is in hot blue color! Woah! Do I changed my most favorite color from violet to blue? :D

Beaches screams summer and summer screams bold colors so I got this hot pink see-through top! This is from Romwe. I got them for $19.99 and they are now out of stock so I cannot give the exact link of this item.

Here is the closer look for this top. It is actually a mesh top and I regret that I didn't had a chance to wear this on Bora. :(

This dress is from Ate Enei that she bought for all of us so we can have a matching maxi dresses for Boracay. Thank you so much ate Enei!  ♥

This hi-low skirt is also from Romwe. Click here for the link to the actual item. I got it for $23 and I know I got a good deal because I got it on sale! Yay!

Accessory souvenirs that I got. I planned it to be my pasalubong but decided to keep it for my own use. Haha.

I got this navy blue straw hat (blue hue again!) from a thrift shop for Php120 (about $3). It was a last minute decision since I got it a night before our morning flight. Impulsive buyer mode here you are again! lol. These sunnies are actually bought far before and it was a planned purchase. I have posted the haul here,

This purse is from ate Enei again! Thank you for being so generous with me ate! ♥
I just love that it has a matching color with my newly-bought necklace.

The last 2 photo are the accessories I got for myself. I got the black and white Capiz shell necklace for Php 120 and the wooden neon one for Php 50. They're so adorable! ♥

More outfit posts is awaiting to be posted here! ♥

OOTD: Sunday Stroll

If you could remember my Sunday Stroll post, this is what I wore that day. It is actually my first time to wear shorts at the mall. I am not used in wearing clothes that shows so much skin but I am loving my self for trying it out now. I am getting out of my comfort zone little by little!


I have also posted it on lookbook:

Boracay Trip: Adventures + OOTD

Our second day in Boracay was full of blast because it is when we do the things that we should do in this trip!

Before I start to tell the story, here is what I wore during that day. A simple, short and striped beach dress in  my favorite hue of course, blue violet! I paired it with my boyfriend's sister's Grendha sandals and my round sunnies! I tied my hair up because as what I've said in my last post, tied up hair looks better with this sunnies.

These are the views from our island hopping experience. I actually had a phobia in sea but this one is an exception because of its beauty.
The boatman led us to one of the island where we can eat. There is a small "paluto" house there and they are serving such fresh foods!

I so love the ombre look of the ocean from afar! So calming and peaceful!

We headed to Mount Luho while riding one of Boracay's famous attraction: All Terrain Vehicle (ATV)! 

Oh, I forgot that this one is not the ATV rather, they call it "Dune Buggies". And I'm so proud that I hyperly drove it back to the terminal! Thanks baby for guiding me!

And because I have experienced driving that DB, I also need to drive a bump car! I had so much fun acting like a little child again!

Mini Nail Polish Collection + Mini Haul

It's Manicure Monday! And I have broke my promise to post a new nail color/ nail art today. But I have not broke that promise at all. I actually changed my nail polish but got a bad quality image. That is why I don't like to post it here at all. Also, Manicure Monday isn't just about nails but nail talk in general. And today's post is directly related in nail talk because it's most about nail polishes!

 If you have read this post, you will know why these brands are my choice of brands. Why not? These 3 brands are the cheapest in the market today! I am not yet on the stage of considering to try other brands that are far cozy than these 3. Simply because my pocket can't afford it yet. Time will come. I know. :D

 I originally had 7 bottles of Oh My Golly nail colors but 2 of them are borrowed by my sister so they are absent in this mini haul. I really love that this brand has a great nail polish consistency. Each bottle costs Php18.00 or approximately $0.5 for 10ml. I am definitely recommending it!

No wonder why Klik nail polish is inexpensive because it is by Oh My Golly. Klik costs Php13.50 or $0.4 per 7ml bottle. It is like another group of variants and colors far different from OMG. Whenever I am going to nail polishes corner, I am dreaming of having each bottle in my collection! A colorful daydream of mine! 

 I accidentally discover that Careline brand is inexpensive too when I gone to a Mercury Drugstore one day. They originally costs Php14.00 or approximately $0.4 for this little bottle. But I got all these 4 bottles for only Php10.00 each! Yes, Php10.00 each because I got them on sale! I am really a sucker for cheap but quality items!

 Going on to the mini haul, these two bottles of Careline classic nail polishes are new in my little collection. I got them when we bought medicine for my sick boyfriend. At first, I don't have an intention to buy them but my eyes saw that they are on sale, I immediately grab 2 bottles and run to the counter. They don't have labels on what color are they but you can clearly see it here that I got a pink and red ones. 

 These sunnies are bought for my Boracay Trip. Since I will just be the one that didn't own a signature brand of sunnies, I opt or the cutest but cheapest one that I saw and it's worth! And I don't mind if they don't look good at me.

 I am so obsess with this pixel shades! They are like nerd glasses with a twist! I have seen various of them over the internet and the are all expensive. I got mine at a bazaar for only Php50.00 or approximately $1.2!

Round sunnies are always seen in the fashion scene today. The first time I saw them makes me want to have one! But 1 isn't enough so I got 2 in different tint! I got disappointed when I tried them on and saw that they don't look good to me. But I discover a trick on how to make them look good on my face during my Boracay trip: tie my hair up!

This is my silly face wearing these 3 glasses while waiting for the van to be full on our way to Kalibo boat port.

And this me with my boyfriend Erickson. I am wearing that round sunnies with my hair tied up. Looks better right? Now I know that trick! Yehey!

Boracay Trip: The Foods

Continuing to my Boracay trip stories, what I am sharing today is the food that we have tasted and eaten during our stay there. I really forget about my figure during this trip. I mean, I am not really in a diet and I haven't been in any. I am just eating what I feel to eat or anything entices my taste buds. And I that is exactly what I have done in Boracay. There is no exeption in my stomach during that 4-day trip.
I actually didn't photographed all the food for some reasons: either my camera is dead-bat or I am so hungry that instead of grabbing my camera, I have grabbed the spoon and fork. lol.

Our flight was delayed that we are still waiting for the boarding time till lunchtime so we bought Muhlach's ensaymada to aid our hunger.

When we got to the hotel, the personnel gave us this four-season juice drink as a welcome gift. This is actually delicious! ♥

We got these Buco Pandan and Banana cake bites as dessert during our first night plus this yummy fruit salad which I actually love because it tastes exactly as my mom's fruit salad

Fresh Garden Salad as appetizer

Breakfast on our second day is rice paired with Chicken Terriyaki and scramble egg.

Breakfast at the hotel was always served with Brewed coffee and fruit juice at side.

Lunch during our island hopping adventure. Pinakbet and Deep Fried Calamares.

Second night's dinner. BTW, We have stayed at La Carmela de Boracay Hotel that was one of the well-known hotel destinations in the island. They said that the TV personalities are the ones that are staying there. I am so honored to stay there. Thanks ate Len! ♥

Beach Hut Bar's shake! So yummy and comes with a cute container! Yay!

Fruit Salad and Potato Soup

Strawberry and carrot cake bites for dessert also.

In cold nights, on what food we are running to? Instant cup noodles!

Our last breakfast in our last day, rice paired with sweet and sour longganisa and scrambled egg.

While waiting for the airplane on our way back to Manila, I bought a Caramel Macchiato at Coffee Break on Kalibo Airport.

And that's all for our food journey! I hope that it interests you even a little. I really had so much fun at Boracay and I am still have more stories to tell!
