Summer 2013: Neon Tips Trend

As we know, summer is all about wearing the craziest colors from your head to toe. I mean, when you wear them on rainy days or spring, it would create an unusual feel. But try wearing it on summer and you'll see, everything will wear it! And speaking of crazy colors, will there be any crazier colors than NEONS? For me there's not. And I am surely taking this opportunity to rock them on from clothes to nails! 

But since I am at the office 6 days per week, I am keeping these neon in a subtle wearable mode. I cut my nails short and wear this Klik Nail Polish in Neon Green at the tip of my nails. Tadaaa! A summer trend that you can rock even in formal or casual days. Yay!

Summer 2013: Purple Rainbow

It's summer time! It's about time to take all those crazy colors and prints our of your closet! We all have an excuse to wear them all out this season so let's get it on! Hooray for summer!

I got this pretty purple dress earlier in November last year and have reserved it for our Boracay outing but sadly, it didn't come in time. So I kept it for long while I am looking for the best time to wear it. Now here's summer that is giving me the passport and telling me to go "gaga" over this beautiful number. What did I do? Of course, I'm much more willing to obey! (teheeee!) I wore it on our family outing, just throw on a sandals and a boho-like bag in its color family and voila! I'm now ready for beach!

I also love how it came in a bohemian cut which is another plus! Flowy dress like these are so "in" this summer! Thank you so much Sammy Dress!

Summer 2013: Sky Ranch Photo Diary

So here goes the continuation of my first summer in Tagaytay. After having our lunch at Green ATS, we headed to the newly-opened  Sky Ranch which is another SMDC creation. This place is boasting the country's tallest Ferris Wheel where you can see the majestic beauty of Tagaytay's famouse Taal volcano when you ride on it! This ferris wheel is merely like the one in SM Mall of Asia. Almost same in height and same in price for PhP 150.00!

From the outside, you will already see this giant ride and if you have shallow happiness like me, then this view can already be breath-taking to you. To enter, you have to pay P50. You have to pay for individual rides that you want to, price ranges from P50.00- P150.00. They don't have ride-all-you-can tickets yet. 

Here are the people behind the reality of my dream to come here, thank you Anson family! 

They are offering horse back riding for almost anyone, kids to adult as long as you can ride SAFELY. ;)

Here's their version of viking which they call Super Viking, it is similar to Enchanted Kingdom's Anchor's Away but I think this swings higher. And to those kids that also want to ride a viking but doesn't pass the height requirement, don't worry, there is Little Viking for you.!

On to the park's main attraction, here goes the Sky Eye, which a giant ferris wheel! You can see the whole city from above it!

Again, it has been a short afternoon with this gorgeous place but I know, there will still be next times! I promise to visit this city again in the future and spend more summer in it!

Sky Ranch is located along Aguinaldo Highway near Taal Vista Hotel. For more information, you can visit their Facebook Page.

Summer 2013: Tagaytay Photo Diary

Are you also feeling the scorching heat of summer lately? Temperature gets up to 37 degrees here in the Philippines and the heat can totally be intolerable! We do have different choices on how to escape the unendurable hotness of weather and keep yourself warm. Opt to raid the beaches/ resorts and play with water all day! If you have time, visit the most elevated cities in our country where climate is usually cold, you will never go wrong with Baguio. But if your busy schedule won’t allow you to have a vacation, try to go to the most accessible places where you can get the same result. Go for Antipolo or Tagaytay instead.

 We opt to visit the latter last Sunday and it was a great experience! It is also a dream come true for me, thanks to my boyfriend's family! I was mesmerized with great scenery in the city, it was peaceful and relaxing to be close to nature!

Our first stop is the Pink Sisters Convent. You will be greeted by huge pine trees upon entering the premises. The photo above is just so serene! Pine trees + church + blue sky = perfect!

This church is the Convent of Divine Mercy, but it was popularly known as Pink Sisters Convent. Why is it known in that name? It is because you will find nuns dressed in pink kneeling in front of the alter during the mass, or reading churchgoer's petitions (of course, I didn't miss the chance and wrote mine too!). Those pink sisters are behind a metal railings inside the church. They say that one should not disturb the solemn prayers of them, that is why the railings are putted behind them.

This is me camwhoring with the church and those gorgeous pine trees. Yey for my shallow happiness. I know, I know!

For the outfit, I opt for a neutral ensemble. I also make sure that I wear a long-sleeve top because I know the sun will kill me (contradicting right? but I am pertaining to sunlight not to heat. ;)) Anyhow, I keep the bottom warm by wearing a shorts. I throw on a violet jelly shoes and a mint backpack from Romwe for a pop of color.

After attending the mass, we headed to Green ATS Bulalohan and Restaurant which showcases the breath-taking view of Tagaytay's famous Tall volcano!

Our cottage was just behind a precipice, I'm thankful that I don't have much fear of heights. You can see the city's skyline over it, and that was just well,  a piece of HEAVEN! Those shadows are clouds from above, and they are covering few spots. Also, if you can see the highest point of the place in this picture, there  is where the new Sky Ranch is situated. I will have a separate blog post for that soon! 

It was a short but priceless experience Tagaytay. I know I will get back again and have the luxury of time and money to enjoy the city!
