Swimwear Idea For The Petite

Because I’m terribly missing the beach, here’s a #throwback of my beach trip last summer and a swimsuit idea for the petite… Fashion magazines used to suggest triangle bikinis for petite girls, especially those who are not so well-endowed. When more swimsuit designs became available in the market, ruffled tops or tops with busy designs became the popular choice. But what if you are not so comfortable wearing triangle bikinis and ruffles are not your thing? My choice… It is still a two-piece bikini, but I’m loving the comfort of the high neckline. No need to be too conscious!...

Unveiling of Okada Manila

Okada Manila has recently been the talk of the town. Aside from being dubbed as Manila’s biggest and most lavish integrated resort development, they just revealed the world’s largest multicolor dancing water fountain. It’s actually set to join the ranks of the country’s top tourism landmarks. Okada Manila The Fountain The dancing water fountain is situated at the heart of the 44-hectare resort. The Fountain dances in sync with music and multicolor lights, enhanced with a highly immersive projection mapping onto the glass surface of the 800m-long crystal corridor, creating a whimsical augmented and interactive reality. Just imagine the combination of digital technology, live acrobatic and circus performances and the grand water fountain display: WOW! I don’t think I have seen anything like it here in Manila! You can watch The Fountain free of charge. See schedule below: Fri to Sat, every half hour (6:00 PM to 12:00 AM) Sun to Thu, every half hour (6:00 PM to 10:00 PM) Okada Manila: The Launch Okada Manila made sure to have a memorable launch by bringing in multi-awarded singer, songwriter and record producer Robin Thicke who joined the grand celebration and performed his hit songs on The Fountain stage.

Chilling at BenCab Baguio

About a month ago, I had a chance to visit BenCab Museum. If you haven’t seen my previous post about it, you can check it out HERE. I frequent Baguio for the fun long drive and the cool weather but this was my first time in BenCab Museum. I always read good things about it, but for some reason, I tend to forget when I’m in Baguio. This time though I was searching for a place to eat, which led us here. Finally! All these photos were taken at the garden area of BenCab Museum. Would you believe there’s also a mini trail there to cross the other mountain? Don’t worry, it’s really mini that anybody can do it! It’s just about 15-minute (or less) leisure walk. You’ll need a guide to show you around though for safety purposes. You need to pay a minimal amount (around PHP 100, I think… sorry, I can’t really remember). When we were there though, there were quite a number of guests so we had to wait for a guide to be available. So while waiting, here I am lounging in their restaurant busy playing… Haha! Caught on cam! By the way, for all the gamers out there, good news! Have you heard that Youtube Gaming is finally here in the Philippines?! It has Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto, League of Legends, Call of...

Time To Visit SM Seaside City Cebu

Just before 2015 ended, SM Seaside City finally opened its doors to the Cebuanos. It’s actually one of the first developments in the master plan of SM Prime Holdings for their 30- hectare space at the South Road Properties, which will eventually be a landmark in the region. When I first saw the photos of SM Seaside City Cebu, I immediately thought of SM Mall of Asia because of their similarities. Both are located beside the waterfront: SM Seaside City Cebu has a spectacular view of the Cebu Channel, just as the SM Mall of Asia has Manila Bay and its glorious sunset as a picturesque backdrop. I remember attending a wedding at the beautiful Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod a few years back. I couldn’t help but wonder then why the chapel was built in between empty lands. Little did I know that it was within the South Road Properties and it was the first structure to open at SM Seaside Complex. Similarly, the Shrine of Jesus, the Way, the Truth, and the Life paved the way for the development of the SM Mall of Asia complex. And who hasn’t seen SM Mall of Asia’s iconic landmark, the Globe? Have you seen the news before that it was even used for a marriage proposal?! Well, SM Seaside City Cebu also has the Cube, a steel 21- meter by...

OOTD: Mykonos

Before 2015 ended, my family and I visited Balesin Island. I think I was the only one in the family who was really excited. None of them likes the beach. As for me, I could lounge by the shore all day! Anyway, here’s one of my outfits during that trip. I thought of sharing it since summer is coming so soon here in the Philippines. Time to shop for resort wear! We spent our first night at the Mykonos villas so I made sure to blend well with the blues and whites. It looks like Santorini, Greece, huh?! Who would ever get tired of that view?! Almost all the villas in Balesin have nice swimming pools, but this one is my favorite. Here are more photos of my outfit… For a more Grecian vibe, I wore a pair of gladiator sandals. Haha! Hey, it goes well with resort wear. 😉 Dress: shein.com Sandals: Mango Sunglasses: Bvlgari Bag: Issey Miyake Watch: Cookoo For instant beauty, fashion, travel, foodie, or random updates from me, LIKE lushangelblog on FACEBOOK, FOLLOW lush_angel on TWITTER and lush_angel on...
