Ilocos Travel Diary: Fort Ilocandia, Malacanang, Paoay Church, Hidden Garden

So here it is, the first part of our Ilocos trip! We paid for a tour which lasted 3 days and each day was jam packed with so many activities! We had booked this trip on the 1st of January this year and traveled last August. I let my friends decide on the trip and itinerary and I have to say, it was a great trip! I never expected that there were so many things to see in Ilocos!

Fire Tree

 I'm not really one with nature and the great outdoors in terms of knowing plant names and flowers and specific fruits and trees so I was really impressed with this beautiful fire tree/flame tree. It was the perfect time too as the leaves were slowly falling, creating a pretty path of red mixed with green. Somehow the aura had a kind of romantic feel to it as well!

The Edit

So, it's been 2 weeks since my birthday and I've realised so much. First, I am getting older. Haha. Second, my style has evolved and changed so much over the years that if I didn't stop to look back, I wouldn't have noticed!

I remember when I was in college and almost graduating, that was the time I was really into fashion and makeup. I guess you could say I was an intern, still learning the ropes and trying everything to see what would work for me. I then came to the stage where I was the "accessory queen" - piling up bracelets one after another and almost filling half my arm! And dangling earrings that were really heavy my ears would fall off. Those were the days! 

And as I approached my mid 20's, I started to edit - HEAVILY. haha. No more piling up of accessories, no more heavy earrings, no more chunky rings. My style changed from all over the place to just classic - with a twist. It took me years to reach where I am now but I'm honestly happy with where I am. This is the style that I want to have, these are the kind of clothes I want to be wearing. It may take you some time, but you too will get to that point where the edit might be your last.

80's Child

Hi everyone! I just got back from a business trip thus the lack of posts for 2 weeks! 

July is my birthday month and my birthday is coming up in a week! I am so looking forward to my well-deserved week long celebration! My birthday is always a big deal for me and I'm always in a reaaaalllyyyy good mood during that week!

I love the fact that I was born in the later part of the 80's. I feel like it was the perfect time because we still had a childhood (cellphones/ipads/computer games did not exist yet at the time and so we had to play with our dolls and neighbours in the streets) but also, we were able to witness the growth of technology, computers and the internet. Most kids these days have iPads as their childhood playmates and I think that's just sad. Every kid should be able to experience playing with dolls, action figures and the likes with nothing but their imaginations to keep them entertained. 

Enjoy the weekend!

Just Press Play

Don't you have those days when you just want to grab a microphone and sing your heart out? I have those moments sometimes. When I hear a really good song or one that takes me back to the 90's and early 2000's, I just want to do a live performance! Haha, I probably would if it were just a number of people though. I find that music is such an integral part of a person's life, don't you think?
