An Afternoon at the Museum

I’ve been wanting to go to this museum after seeing one of Lissa Kahayon’s posts on Instagram a couple of months ago (and yeah, it really took me months before I got to visit this place).☻ She was sitting on a Greece-like stairs, and it was lovely.

So, I Google-d Pinto Art Museum (which is in Antipolo by the way), took mum with me and asked her to shoot me some photos.☻


Since it was my first time going there, I didn’t expect it to be a sweltering afternoon inside the museum. The place doesn’t have AC and they only use electric fans there. I was sweating profusely since I decided to wear this long-sleeved bodycon dress. So, just a heads up if you’re planning to visit the place – wear something airy and light.


There are six galleries in this museum, but I’d rather not talk about the place too much right now ‘coz I’m planning to revisit it soon (I’ll reserve it for my next Pinto visit, hehe.). ‘Coz yes, the museum has so many places to shoot and I know I’m still missing half of them.


So here, sharing with you some of the photos I got from the museum.

Credits to mum for my outfit shots. Thank you and I love you!♥

Time to be a Mermaid

The heat is on and summer is finally here!♥ I decided to spend my first summer trip in Zambales – with a friend who understands my love for photographs. LOL


We went to Liwliwa in San Felipe, Zambales. It was actually my first time there and I’m glad I visited the place.♥


The weather was lovely and the place is just right for a newborn mermaid, like me.☻ Why newborn? I was never a beach person. I rarely go to the beach as I hate sand and I hate the sun. I’m not comfortable wearing swimsuits and mom doesn’t like them on me. Haha. But people change and so do I. (Sorry, mom… But I love you!)


I’ve been to just a few beaches, but Zamba is my fave so far (I’m still waiting and looking forward to an El Nido get away hopefully this year, please, please, please!). I love it here as the seashore is wide and the place is not crowded. (Sorry for the images’ resolution below. Device-error. Haha.)


I just love this hanging chair. We took a lot of photos here. LOL


I call them “Flags of Summer”.


Sun on my skin? I can handle it. Just make sure to put some sunscreens on before hitting the beach. You don’t want to get those unwanted tan lines all over your body.


And don’t forget these things before going on a beach trip: Sunscreen. This is a must! Be generous on your skin when applying though. Sunscreen Lip Balm. Protect your lips as well! Sunglasses. You don’t want to ruin your summer photos seeing your eyebrows puckered because of the heat. Of course your cute swimsuits (Yes, swimsuits. The more the merrier!). And a Cover Up if you feel wearing one.


Photo creds to my ever supportive friend, Jaff! I’m looking forward to spending another summer vacay with you!♥


And I’ve actually found another beach destination for my next summer trip. Hope work can adjust! Haha. See you on my next blog post!

Love Day

I recall reading a tweet about a viral fast food TVC. The tweet goes something like, “The TVC reminds us that February isn’t only for the couples in love, but also for the people who chose to love in silence.” Aww…♥ Just sharing with you guys.


Anyway this Valentine, I’m wearing a shade lighter than red (which I prefer ‘coz I don’t really wear red). This is a casual look if you’re going on a date with mom or, with your girlfriends.☻

But if you’re going on a romantic date with someone, go get a dressy one.

La, la, la… LOL

v_013 v_014

Seriously, there are so many reasons to smile this Valentine.☻ Flowers from someone, a date with your friends / family, a short conversation with your crush, your playful pet, text messages from people greeting you a happy heart’s day, you getting a good night / day sleep, all those simple things in life… So, just smile.☻

It’s Time…

Hola! The love month has finally arrived and it came sooner than I expected. It’s been a month now since the year has changed and I can say that it was a drastic change!

Anyway, the pictures that I have on this blog post were taken a month or two ago, I just realized it’s time to post them.☻


Does the place look familiar now?


These were taken in a lovely hotel somewhere in Paranaque.


How can you resist taking photos in this lovely place?♥


The towers are like piles of golden bricks…


Photos were taken by my fab achie, Jhen…♥


…in City of Dreams Manila.☻

Any life-changing moment you have this 2017? Share it!

Jump(er) High!

Got a playful OOTD last Sunday with a requisite amount of maroon. LOL.

This jumper dress gives me that childhood feels.

Matched it with my fave super comfy sneakers…

And this ribbon hair bow is a cutie.🎀

Nothing Else Matters

Going to the mall or to the park in this capricious weather? Here’s a good suggestion.☻


A cute pullover from Just G says, “Nothing Else Matters… Just you!” Aww…♥


Leathers don’t get wet easily. It also keeps you feeling warm when it’s cold outside. Perfect for this unpredictable weather! Leather shorts/skirt from Genevieve Gozum.


You don’t want those cute toes to get wet when the rain pours, do you? Keep them high and keep them dry in these rattlesnake platform sneakers. Something Borrowed platform sneakers from Zalora.


This bowling bag is big enough to keep your everyday travel necessities in place, including a foldable umbrella! Black quilted bowling bag from Mango.


Vintage watch from Casio.


Sunnies from Sunnies.


Ring from Eastwood City.


There! Rain or shine, you’re ready!☻

Fitspire (Part I)

Sharing with you guys a sporty OOTD…


We had this super cool jacket customized (I just can’t remember where…)!


And I just love this Sony Walkman logo behind me.♥


Sports shorts from Body Music.


Shoes from Nike.


That face… LOL. (Excuse my warla-face here.☻)


I really miss jogging and playing badminton with my friends (from Sony). I remember, we used to request for the earliest shift we can get so that we can also log out early. Then off we go to the nearest park or sports complex to do our morning jog and play badminton. Hayy… Those were the days.♥


Anyway, I’ll be posting some photos we had on my next blog post!

Photo creds to Jayson Bryan C. Millo for this blog post. Thanks big time!☻


How about you? Are you also a sporty-type of gal?
