As I mentioned in my previous post, we stayed at the biggest cottage in Sonya's Bed & Breakfast-- the Lavender Cottage. They have fourteen cottages-- all named after herbs and spices. The weekend rate is PhP3,400/person for one night regardless of the cottage. I did a ton of research online but I didn't find any photos on how these cottages look like inside.
For those of you who are planning to stay at Sonya's, especially the first-timers, these photos might help you decide whether or not the Lavender Cottage is the one for you.

My siblings and I planned a trip to Tagaytay for our parents' 25th anniversary. We stayed at Sonya's Bed & Breakfast as per my mom's request, and got the biggest cottage, the Lavender Cottage (more on this on my next post).
After checking in, we took my parents to Qi Wellness for a surprise spa treat. They were caught completely by surprise! I booked them for a 3-hr Quick Escape package which included a 60 minute use of bath house facilities (pools, steam, shower), a 30 minute foot reflexology, and a 90 minute massage. They loved it!
After the spa, we headed back to Sonya's for our dinner. Everyone enjoyed the healthy dishes, especially the salad greens that were freshly harvested from the garden. We then went back to the cottage which was just a few meters away from the dining area and presented our gift to them -- a portrait of the two of them during their wedding hand drawn by my sister! We've been planning this for months and we were glad that everything went smoothly!
P.S. Don't have much photos because all of us were busy enjoying the moment! Lol.

Last Friday, Penshoppe showcased their pre-holiday collection with international model Lucky Blue Smith as frontline of the fashion show. This new collection boasts of monochromatic pieces, gradient tees, plaid shirts, utilitarian jackets, and distressed denim. I can't wait to get my hands on them!

Guangzhou (Canton) is surprisingly just a short two-hour train ride from Hong Kong. The train had comfortable seats and it even had a food car (yay!) for those with hungry tummies. Upon arrival in Guangzhou, the first order of business was to get a good look at the Canton Tower. The weather was warm and sunny, it was a perfect day to walk around and take photos. Below are some photos taken during my trip last May!

This navy crop top is something I absolutely adore! Luckily, I found this pair of high waisted pants that goes perfectly well with it. I got these pants around 5 years ago, I wore them once, and never had the chance to wear them again until now.
More than the style, the first thing I consider when buying jeans is the fit. And when talking about great fitting jeans, I'm sure the brand Levi's always comes to mind. Just last week, Levi's introduced the new 505C jeans and showcased them in a fashion show at Revel. Keep reading for more info + photos!

I received these two products from Aqua Mineral when I attended their event last May and decided to share my thoughts in a blog post.
I tried first the Aqua Velvet Touch Hand & Body Lotion in Midnight Magic. True to its claim, it is indeed very quick absorbing. After several hours, there isn't any trace of product on my skin. It has a floral powdery scent, but very light and goes away as soon as the lotion is spread all over the body. I'm hoping that they come up with a lotion that has a stronger scent to keep the skin smelling good all day.
The Nourishing Foot Cream is more moisturising and has a much thicker consistency than the lotion, which is expected since this product is meant to be applied on the foot. Overall, it does the job of moisturising the skin. Plus, it has a mild sugary scent which I really love.
Big downside: according to its website, the lotion costs $59, and the foot cream costs $89. Quite expensive for just so-so products.

Long time no outfit post! Lol. So anyway, this is what I wore to Clean Reserve's media luncheon at Blackbird. I've been wearing this pair of shoes a lot lately, especially in the office. Although it's not as high as I originally preferred, it's super comfortable, I can run around, and can even wear it all day long!

I was recently invited to attend CLEAN Reserve's launch at Blackbird. According to their press release, CLEAN is a ‘non-perfumed’ perfume loved by those who don’t want an overpowering scent, and for those who don’t want to make a statement when they walk into a room. But they want to smell good for themselves and the people close by.
I get terrible allergies when exposed to strong odors, and because of this, I dont have a lot of options when buying perfume. I'm definitely glad that I have more scents to choose from now that CLEAN perfumes are here!
