Batangas and Galera!

Since I am so behind in my entries, I decided to post to summer getaways in one entry! Ha!

Valentino Resort and Spa

We had a once in a blue moon mini reunion few weeks ago with my relatives from my father's side. We hardly see each other so naturally, we aren't that bonded. The mini reunion was actually for Lola Fidela's birthday. I met some cousins for the first time. We still didn't talk that much but I'm so glad I met them somehow. Hopefully, we'll get to spend time together again soon.

Group picture! :)
The place is so beautiful! Really. It is. Very.
And what's really cool is that there were times when we have the pool by ourselves! Lol. There weren't so many people when we were there.
See? No one else there! Hahaha!
They even have a hanging bridge there!
There's also a Koi pond in the place were we stayed in.

Dolphin Bay Resort @ Sabang, Puerto Galera

Mother and friends organized a little bonding and catching up few weeks ago, so me and my sister Kiara decided to tag along. I didn't want to go at first because I thought we were going to be spending the night in White Beach. I know that White Beach would be soooo crowded (as usual) so I was hesistant at first. Good thing we checked in at one of the resorts in Sabang. The place is so not crowded. The resort is actually still kind of far from the famous Sabang Beach. I liked it! So much!

It's a really small but beautiful resort. Very private! Perfect for bondings and relaxation. :) They also have a good collection of books!

Our view whenever we're eating. :D
Mom and friends! Pang pageant daw sabi nila hahaha!
And just like in Valentino Resort, I also have the pool all by myself HAHA
And look! I even have the sea all by myself! Lol

Sorry for the photo heavy post. :) Hope you guys had/have a fun summer too!

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&#…
