A DAY IN.

IMG_5532
Having a day to ourselves might just be what we need after a long hectic week. Here are 2 simple ways you can spend all day in your pjs and still be productive! After making your morning coffee (or hot chocolate for me), you can either start with tidying up your vanity table top or tidying your closet!

Seen here: Marc Jacobs Daisy, Prada Candy, J'adore Dior, Aēsop Hand Cream, Crème Simon Universal Cream

These are the 3 main fragrances that I use on a daily basis and 2 of my favourite creams. Baby steps to decluttering: Display the products that you use most and keep the rest that are used less!

I prefer planning my outfits according to what I am going to wear or I have not worn yet. I know we've all been through mornings where wardrobe wars are involved but let's end that together! Organizing your clothing this way gives you that extra 5 minutes to lay in bed a little longer.

How are some of your pj days like?

INTO THE BLUES

IMG_5532

Andddd this is finally up! Here's my visual diary from the amazing days in Cebu, Philippines. It felt like paradise everyday. We travelled from island to island on different forms of transport; boat, jitney, motorcycles and a mini van! We stayed in 4 different resorts via airbnb throughout our entire trip here.

First up, we headed to Tumalog Falls, Oslob. The falls were almost dried up and it was a lot different from the pictures we saw on the net. But it was still beautiful and peaceful as we were the only ones there. The next morning, we swam with the whale sharks, such an unforgettable experience. Here's Anita with the beautiful creature.

After we swam with the whale sharks, we took a boat to Sumilon Island. The waters were unbelievably clear, it was a dream. We also went to Apo Island, where we swam with the sea turtles and on to Dumaguete and Badian the next few days.

All our time was spent on snorkelling, crab hunting with the locals, playing basketball with the kids, having countless mango shakes, collecting shells, witnessing the prettiest sunrise and sunsets, having breakfasts by the sea, and counting endless stars when night falls. We then headed for Badian to unleash our inner daredevils. We conquered canyoneering and cliff jumping in Kawasan Falls. Yet another beautiful creation by Mother Nature. We have no photos of our activities while we were there but I'm proud to say I jumped from a 20ft cliff. I would do it again, just saying. My friends were even bigger daredevils; jumping from 50ft to 80ft cliffs, my heart literally dropped while watching them plunge down. Definitely recommending Kawasan Canyoneering to everyone, it's one helluva adventure. Feel free to leave any questions or anything really, in the comment box below!

SUNDAYS AT HOME

IMG_5532
Oh Sundays, don't we all have a love-hate relationship with you. The excitement when the weekends are here and then, only to realise that it's Monday again. Here's how to make the most out of your Sundays, without feeling like it was just another weekday.

IMG_5532
Time for yourself. 

Having a little me time wouldn't hurt. Putting yourself before anyone else might just be what you need. Instead of cramming up all the lunches and brunches with your friends, save that for another time. Use this precious Sunday to do what you like! Pamper yourself, get lost into a new book and just relax, really. Here's 2 of my favourite books of all time, 1 & 2

IMG_5532
Relax your mind and soul.

Make time to do what makes your soul happy. Treat yourself to a homemade mask, change your sheets, go for a walk or even detach yourself from social media. Do what you enjoy, be a queen for yourself! Unless you do enjoy a good thumb exercise, scrolling endlessly on your feed..

IMG_5532
Slow down.

Remember it is YOUR day. Lounge around in your favourite sleepwear and just breathe. We spend most of our time rushing about that we often forget to just take a break. Use this time to just be a sloth before saying hello to Monday again.

How I would go about making sure I've had a great productive weekend, would be by making a list on what I'd like to accomplish. Waking up earlier definitely helps, that extra 2-3 hours could be used for tidying that corner of your bedroom that you've been pushing back because 'there's no time'. I try to complete what I'd like to do by Saturday, so I could have the ultimate and best Sunday ever.

What about you? How do you make the most of your weekends? x

TRAVEL MUST-HAVES - SUMMER EDITION

IMG_5532

If you've been following my journey on Instagram, you would have known that I've just returned from the amazing and beautiful Cebu, Philippines! I would say Philippines just made it to my top 5 favourite to-visit countries list. We explored 5 islands while we were there and mind you, there are a total of 7,107 islands in Philippines. A visual diary of the trip will be up soon, stay close for that!

Here's a short guide to what I packed for my trip to Cebu!

1 being the obvious would be a swimsuit of course! I got mine in a tropical print from Rip Curl.
2. What's a beach getaway without denim shorts? I brought 2 pairs with me on my trip! (Similar here)
3. Packed my Old Navy sandals as they're kinda water proof and really easy to wear. 
4. Sun-busters: Hats and Sunnies to block out the rays! I forgot to include sunblock, so here's what I've been using.
5. A beach bag: I brought a cross body along as I did not need a huge tote. I find that when I have a bigger bag, I tend to pack unnecessarily.

And there you have it! It was a challenge not to overpack for this trip, I minimised as much as I could. What are some of your beach must-haves? I would love to know! x
