It was a busy summer for me. During this season, I’m not used to staying here in the metro most of the time, especially on weekends. Well, I’m not complaining. Being busy and a little stress from time to time is good. Haha! Sad to say though that my only real beach trip this summer was my escape to Donsol, Sorsogon last April.


We actually went to Donsol for whale shark watching, but that deserves a separate post. After our whale shark watching, we spent another day island hopping. From Sorsogon, we went to a couple of islands in Masbate. Here’s one of the islands. I forgot the name though, but the rock formation is amazing. To get to the top is not for the faint of heart. Honestly, my body was shaking as I was posing for these photos. Yes, “buwis-buhay” shots for the love of! Haha!


So, just imagine my relief the moment I got down. I had to lie down. Haha!



As you can see, the sand is white but a bit rocky. Again, I had to endure the pain for the love of! LOL!


Anyway, I really love this lace kimono. I used it in a casual outfit, as seen in this post:

It can also be used as a beach cover-up. The fringes add drama, especially when the wind blows, right?!


I got my bikini from Cesa. It’s a perfect style for those who are not so comfortable wearing triangle style bikinis. The top is bandeau, which isn’t too revealing.


By the way, all regular priced Cesa swimsuits come with a waterproof pouch to easily separate wet swimmies from the rest of your clothes. Yay!


Oh, and can you see that super chic duffle bag??? It’s from J. Ladies, a local brand that offers traveling bags, ladies’ bags, wallets, etc. When I browsed through their Instagram account (@jladies_ph), I really had a hard time choosing from their trendy duffle bags. They have various fun and hip prints. Obviously, the traveler in me chose the Around The World print. I’ve been using it almost everyday, not just for overnight getaways. I tote it around when I go to the gym or in shoots. I find it very spacious and durable since it’s made of thick cotton canvas. You can check out and order through their Instagram account @jladies_ph.
