I went home in Mindoro for the Holy Week and spent the weekend with the extended family. (Mother's side) When we're together, we always eat a lot or swim a lot. Be it at a cheap resort or a really good one, as long as the pools are clean, we'll go there and drown ourselves in the pool! For this summer, we went swimming at Benilda Resort in Naujan and at Villa Bautista Resort in Victoria. I'll just squeeze the photos from the two resorts in one entry because there's still a lot to blog but I was too lazy so I am so behind right now. :))

Benilda Resort

I initially didn't have plan of swimming but my little cousin, Antonella, didn't want to go in the water unless she was with me. Lol. The water's so clear. They only have 2 swimming pools. One for adults and a smaller one for kids.
Antonella. You can still see the marks that chickenpox left the poor little girl. She's too maarte.
The place is so pretty! So many places to get photos taken! We loved these three monkeys! Took a lot of photos with them.
Jason Francisco of PBB was there, too. I was so frustrated because I din't get a solo photo op with Mr. Wood. Kainez lang si Jason ang tagal nagpipicture dun. Ugh.
And there were horses, too.
With Axel and Karen. They were making fun of us because us two (me&Karen) were the ones who took a lot of photos!
The Simbahang Bato is just around the area so we decided to visit. Residents say that they hear scary noises at night.
The extended family. Still incomplete tho.

Villa Bautista Resort

We didn't pay for anything here because the owner is a family friend. Haha. :) We just brought foods and enjoyed each other's company.

The kids didn't mind the sun!
I like this photo because I can see the color of my hair! Lol.
And of course, here's Antonella!

Will blog about this weekend's summer bonding with the extended family from my father's side next! How're your summer so far you guys? :)

Thanks for the comment in my blog. This place looks nice and love the old church. I got some fascination with church on ruins.

I was actually going over your blog and I so envy all the beach and pool photos. =(

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D

LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
