Philippines is a beautiful country, and other than it’s scenetic views, Philippines and its people has a lot to offers and one of it was being relaxed and having a time off on your daily stressor by getting yourself some good hour massage either have yourself a treats that can benefit your whole being. Actually, when we still resides in the Philippines last 4 years ago me and my family are have this Sunday bonding where me and mum are always on the rush at spa and doing our thing while husband, the dad and my brother are hanging at the hair men shop and doing their own things as well. That is why when we are here we used to it that we;re doing all these things are all these services are gold indeed in states, yes – pretty expensive to avail.

When in Philippines, dont forget to have a sip of coconut water as it has a bunch of benefits to our body. Also, this coconut water is rarely can see in states hence it’s time for me to take advantage in it as it was pretty available anywhere in the country.

And of course, bonding with friends can be missed out. Because it’s been so long already when we got to see each other thus we have a bunch of girls talk to do while am enjoying the vacation. Also, food tripping is our goal together with chitchatting.

When In Philippines

As all know that me and my husband are got migrated here in states 4 years ago and since then we merely visit the country, Philippines, due of the workloads and other stuff that we needed to attend often. That is why we often misses the time where we still there and doing the things we used to do like hanging out with family every Sundays and visit these unusual food places to try out different dishes which aren’t that familiar with us. Also, to travel locally and explore on what’s the country has to offer. Yes! even though we’re Filipinos we still haven’t that familiar with sorts of places as the whole country is indeed huge and cant able to tour in one go.

When in Philippines:

One I’d really like to do is to go an adventure like trekking and mountain climbing as the whole country is a abundance with nature resources hence you should enjoy the beautiful sceneries as you find yourself one day roaming the country.

I’ll be listed out some of the places you should go as you decides to visit Philippines soon.

  • Tagaytag – This place is quite far in manila but it is worth it to visit as you can see all the beauty of nature. You can see able to see the small volcano in the middle of the lake which I know is rarely to see also you can enjoy the cold breeze air in here as the place is surrounded by small mountains and trees.
  • Baguio – As you go on this touristy place. I suggest you to have an anti dizzy pill as you have to go through in the zig zag roads going on the top of the mountain. You can also enjoy those kind-hearted indigenous people who wears a piece of clothes which I know can amazed you.
  • Bohol – If you are not that fond to go in the capital, Manila, I think you better go to bohol where the Tarsier are houses.. You can even enjoy seeing those mini mountains that we called Chocolate Hills.
  • Palawan – Last Year me and my family are got to see the beauty of Palawan and please do check my Philippines link at the sidebar for you to see those post card like pictures we’ve took.
  • Boracay – Of course, Boracay cant be abolish in the list as all tourists are keen to visit the island, as it well known of having a white sand beach.

A Girl’s Guide To Packing For A Weekend Away

Like most girls, I am terrible at packing for a weekend away. No matter where I am going, I will always over pack. Sometimes to the extent where my weekend bag is too heavy to carry. It’s a nightmare.

When you are heading off on a short trip, it can be tricky knowing what to pack. Ideally, you only want to bring the things you need, but far too often you end up over packing so that you don’t forget anything – it’s a vicious circle.

You may be wondering if there is a way you can pack light without forgetting any of the essentials, and to answer your question: yes there is.

Here is how you should pack for a weekend away:

Start with your clothes

The key to packing light for a weekend away is packing versatile items that can be easily mixed and matched to create different outfits.

The best way to pack is around your favourite colour. Is green your best colour? Or do you look drop-dead gorgeous in red? Pack clothes in the colour you look best in and then use other pieces to coordinate with them to create different outfits.

Weekend essentials are a pair of dark jeans, a cardigan, a pair of flats, one pair of heels, a smart top, two basic tees, a pair of leggings and some accessories. When you only have room for a certain amount of clothing, accessories are key and can be used to dress up and add style to each outfit.

Is a hair dryer and flat iron necessary?

Whether packing your hair dryer or hair flat iron is necessary, will depend on where you are staying and what your hair is like. If you are heading to a fancy hotel, then there should be a hair dryer in your room. However,  if you are heading off to stay with a family friend, you may want to take your own hair dryer with you.

It’s very unlikely that any hotel or holiday accommodation will provide you will a hair straightener. So if you hair tends to frizz, it might be a good idea to take your own. If you are staying with a friend who has a straightener, ask them what make it is, so that you can look it up online. If, for example, your friend has ghd straighteners, you could have a look online for ghd flat iron reviews. Some straighteners work better on different types of hair, so it’s always best to check.

Move onto toiletries

For two nights away, you don’t need to go mad on the toiletries. If your shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and all the other bits and bobs can’t fit into one wash bag, then you are trying to pack too much.

As well as your shampoo, conditioner and shower gel, the things you don’t want to forget are your makeup, moisturiser, deodorant, and your hair care products.

Top tip: instead of packing makeup remover, toner, etc. opt for a pack of makeup remover wipes. Although, they aren’t great for your skin, they are ideal for a couple of nights away, especially as they save a lot of space in your luggage.

Things you don’t want to forget

Don’t forget to pack your phone, and phone charger, camera and camera charger and any other electronics you might need.

And, remember, weekend away packing can be easy, as long as you are organised and only take what you need.

How to Make Sure That You Aren’t Spending Too Much On Your Hotel

Are you getting ready to take the family on the vacation of a lifetime? Maybe you are simply traveling to London for business. Either way, you might want to think of ways that will allow you to take advantage of the cheap hotels in London. By ensuring that you are not going to spend too much money, you are going to have plenty of money to do other things. If you are unsure where to start, take a moment to read through the following tips for saving money.

Compare Against the Competitors

If you do not take the time to compare the prices among various hotel competitors, you will not know whether you are getting a fair deal or not. Therefore, you might want to take a little bit of time to make some comparisons. Of course, you need to pay special attention to what it is that you are comparing so that you are not comparing apples to oranges. A great way to do this is to get online and check out some of the various hotel review sites that also list current room prices. This is just about the best way to compare several hotels that are offering roughly the same things.

Look For Discounts

With some hotels, you are not going to find yourself set up with any discounts unless you make it a point to ask for them. Some hotels can actually email you a list of ways you can qualify for discounts. For example, your employer might have a deal that allows you to receive discounts at various hotel locations. You might have an emergency roadside assistance membership that will allow you to get a few hotel discounts. You might even qualify for discounts based on your age or the number or people that you are traveling with.

Set A Budget and Stick With It

Instead of making your budget fit the hotels that you find, you want to find the hotels that fit within your budget. Therefore, before you make any reservations, you need to make sure that you have decided just how much you can afford on the cost of your hotel room. Then, search online through sites that will allow you to only search for hotels that fall specifically within your price range. This will help to make sure that you are not tempted to spend more money than you really want to for the hotel in London.

As you can see, there really are a lot of great ways to make sure that you are not spending too much money on the cost of your hotel. By making sure that you are spending your money wisely, you will be able to afford so many other excellent parts of your vacation. For example, you will possibly be able to afford more dinners out, more shows, and more gifts for your friends and family back home. All you have to do now is to make sure that you are getting started with your search so you can better plan the rest of your vacation.

We did it. Though it is quite hard to handle the motor itself because I am not used on this kind of vehicle at all. But that lovely young lady over there. She actually easily hand the motor without her sweats on, I dunno on how she can did it but I think she’s really good on learning new things such as this that am bad with.. hehe

Overall, this experience is superb and I hope to do it again soon as we got a great amount of work’s leaves. Okay, that will be all for now and please keep on checking me here for more adventures,fashion and travels updates.

It’s Snowing at Palm Springs peak # California # USA

 photo 386393_322195697805128_1683000714_n_zps4cd4d35d.jpg

Though we’re in the states – we still rarely sees the snows falling. Because we were in the state where snows aren’t showing when the winter comes. But there’s an remote area like in the palm springs resorts where you can go in and see on how pretty this white cold thing falling from the sky. I’d still feel amused when every time I see this wonderful white tiny ice, I dunno, It’s just feels surreal to me still when I sees a place that are surrounds with snows.

My husband and I are decided to heads to palm springs for us to enjoy the cold place and play with the snow a little. Though, we haven’t the proper wear for it and still we managed it and bears the cold breeze blowing – overall this little trip is awesome and if we got some times, might be next year, I probably go back here again but with my winter wear for sure an enjoy the moment and catch the beautiful scenery more.

Okay, that’s all for now and looking forward to see you again here for more of my personal updates and trips.
