Last July, I visited Boracay with my Boyfriend for my late birthday travel. This will also be my last vacation here in the Philippines before I move to Canada. Last year we travelled to Manila, Tagaytay and Batangas for my birthday and I want to keep this tradition alive in the coming years.

A lot of things has changed in Boracay since my last visit in 2009. There are more things to see and do nowadays. Aside from sun bathing by the beach, we also made sure that we will be able to do recreational activities to make it even more memorable. I am not fond of water activities to be honest, I am scared of water because I don’t know how to swim and I always fear for my life when I am close to the sea. That is also the reason why I don’t like going to beaches, but we all know it’s different with Boracay, right? I made sure to get the right tan and go for Parasailing and ATV.

Our first activity is ATV. We followed the trail going to Mt. Lujo where we lingered a bit to see the amazing view of the island. The secret to get a lower priced adventure is to haggle to an acceptable budget, but not to the point where agent is no longer getting commission. For the ATV activity that we did, we paid P700.00 each.

Our next adventure is Parasailing. This is what I am really excited about. I’ve been babbling about this to my boyfriend because this is included in my life bucket list of the things that I want to do. He has fear of heights but I was able to convince him to conquer his fears. Thank god he agreed. We paid P1,100 each for Parasailing.

Purely coincidence, my Aunt and her family also visited Boracay on the same date as ours and they invited us for dinner at Discovery Shores where they are staying. Here I am with my beautiful Aunt Socorro.

Your Boracay travel will not be complete if you will not see the stunning Boracay sunset. I love how the sky change its color come sunset and there are a lot of people by the beach waiting for it.

Before I end this blog, let me show you how my breakfast looks like. On our first day I chose Filipino breakfast called Tocilog and on our second until our last days I decided to go for Continental Breakfast so I don’t have to eat a lot, plus it includes bacon which is my favorite in the whole wide world!

That’s it for now, some of my Boracay photos are included in either my outfit posts or bikini posts in Boracay so stay tuned for that.

It’s been a long time since I last posted a Bikini blog. When was the last time? Probably 2 or 3 years ago. I was even reluctant in wearing bikini at this time, however, who would not want to wear a sexy bikini if you are in a paradise island called Boracay, right? So I took my roundie and started beach bumming early in the morning.

 

P.S. I am not on a diet or did any form of exercise because I’m too lazy for that. Trick is, I did not eat breakfast yet.

DSC_0002I might be one of the girls who only knew Benefit cosmetics by name but never really tried their products. So, the moment I got an invitation for the opening of their first store in Cebu, I am one happy Cebuana. Happy that finally, I will be able to try the beauty product everyone is raving about. Their cute product packaging is also something that I am looking forward to in having inside my make-up kit.

To enlighten girls like me who are not familiar about the brand, let me share what I have learned through research. Benefit Cosmetics LLC is a cosmetics company that started in San Francisco, California by the Ford twins Jean and Jane. This is where they introduced their fast and fabulous beauty solutions and made customers laugh out loud with their beauty locker room banter. The twin sisters’ motto was… “Make up doesn’t have to be serious to look good!” Their unique approach to beauty was an instant hit and helped make Benefit one of the worlds beloved makeup brands. I also love their beauty Benefesto that says “Laughter is the best Cosmetic.” Absolutely true!

I finally saw Kryz Uy in Cebu! She is one of the fashion bloggers that I really looked up to and the one who inspired me to start a fashion blog. I was really wishing we would bump into each other in one of the events, and it never happened until today!
