NO FISHING

Hey guys! How’s your Holy Week going so far? I’m sure some of you are either out of town/country, doing visita iglesia or just staying home enjoying the holidays (as a freelancer I really can’t relate haha). I, however had a pretty stressful one (lol). I was the designated driver for our annual family trip this holy week and I drove for 8 dreadful hours from Manila to Zambales. It was crazy. It would usually take us 2-3 hours to get there but apparently almost every family had the same agenda. Good thing we played tons of games during the trip to keep ourselves entertained. Haha!

Oh yeah, about the outfit. Went for something simple and comfortable for a long drive but still stylish enough for summer. I really like wearing brown with white–they go so well together and I like how it shows off my tan. Haha! Finished it off with my favorite brown leather cellphone bag to make everything look cohesive. Have a blessed Holy Week everyone!

THE MODERN TRAVELER

Finally able to share with you my photo diary from my stay at Azumi in an order I’m happy with. It was difficult to choose which photos would make it to the blog because everything was picturesque. The array of books, photos, cozy furnishings, the red accents. Not to mention the natural light filtering through the floor-to-ceiling glass walls, accenting the spaciousness that defines the Azumi’s elegant living spaces. I guess being in Azumi really gets you creative and inspired!

Consisting of 187 spacious and stylish rooms, Azumi is really fit for the modern traveler. One that is not only stylish and environmentally friendly, but also focused on providing things that are really essential and meaningful. By doing away with what is superfluous and largely wasted, Azumi’s guests can enjoy a quality hotel at an outstanding value. After attending strings of meetings in ATC (good thing it’s just a short walk away from the hotel), I had a few more hours to spare to soak up some sun, take a dip at the gorgeous infinity pool and enjoy the amazing food at Romulo Cafe–just located at the ground floor of the hotel. Hope you guys like these photos as much as I do!

ROAD TRIP WITH THE HYUNDAI ELANTRA

I love road trips. There’s nothing like spending quality time your family/friends/special someone–just telling stories, talking about random stuff and singing along to your favorite songs. A few weeks ago, my friends and I went on a road trip to Pico de Loro for a quick little vacation. As much as we wanted to just hop in the car (the very sleek and sexy Hyundai Elantra, that is) and let the wind take us away, life just doesn’t work that way. We had to make hotel reservations, plan our itinerary, etc. Haha! Thank you Hyundai for an epic weekend!

BLACK FIRE

Okay I know I said I won’t wear black this summer or anything remotely close to it but my collaboration with Flesh Imp is out! Well, it’s still in the works but I was able to get a few samples to wear and shoot for the blog. You can pre-order by dropping them a message hereFlesh Imp is the top urban street label in Singapore and they’ve collaborated with global brands such as Adidas, Hypebeast, Andy Howell, Eminem, Casio G-SHOCK and Canon, among others. This is the first time they’re collaborating with a blogger and I’m proud they chose someone from the Philippines! I’ll post the other designs soon!

COLORS OF SUMMER

I don’t usually wear this much color (all at once) but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to bring all my new summer clothes to my recent trip to Pico de Loro! I feel like I got a little too excited and pretty much wore everything in one outfit! Haha! I spent three days in this beautiful beach resort for a styling gig. I always look forward to out of town shoots because we usually get a lot of free time after shooting. Unfortunately, I didn’t get any because we had to shoot as much layouts as we can in a span of three days. Yikes! Oh well, at least I was able to wake up extra early to walk along the beach and enjoy the breakfast buffet. Haha! I can’t wait to hit the beach again this week and just relax. What are your plans this holy week? :)

NOT SO CORPORATE

When choosing an outfit to wear for meetings, I always go for long-sleeved button downs. For some odd reason, I would always end up pairing them with sweatpants, jeans or leatherette pants, lol. Way to go for trying to look decent for my clients. Haha! To make it even more confusing, I finished the look by wearing my gym shoes. Ha! Well, I don’t see myself working in a corporate setting–at least not yet. So I might as well enjoy dressing up (in sweatpants, mostly) while I’m still freelancing!
