Come Closer

You know summer is around the corner when Nivea’s invite to its annual beach getaway arrives at your doorstep. This year, the world’s most trusted skin care brand whisked us away to Balesin for an exciting couple of days filled with all sorts of fun under the sun. We toured around the exclusive island, played […]


Summer Breeze

I’ve been dying to shoot at Balesin’s Mykonos Village since the first time I visited it a few years back. At that time, certain areas of the village were still under construction so I’m glad I got to visit it again with Nivea. As you can see from this and my previous Balesin post, red, white and […]


Do The Wakudoki

This is what the beach does to me. I turn into an overly giddy person who runs all over the place like crazy. This stolen shot of me running to my friend who’s sunbathing peacefully in Bali is proof enough, yes? I was so hyper I was actually this close to asking them to do […]


Smart Summer

Boracay can be the best of both worlds. It can provide relaxation and serenity. And at the same time, be the hottest place to party during summer. So which is it now? After my quiet time at Shangri-la Boracay last March (as you’ve seen in my previous posts here, here and here), I went back to my […]


Skittle Skies

There’s nothing more romantic than staring at the sunset with the sounds of the waves crashing on the background. I wasn’t a beach baby before but as you can probably tell from all my beach posts, I became a convert somewhere along the way. I love everything about it–the food, the environment, the lifestyle and even the […]


Sunset Hits

You haven’t truly experienced a beautiful sunset if you’ve never been to Boracay. No really. Not to brag or anything but we have the BEST beach sunsets EVER. No other place can compare. Others may have their castles, palaces, temples, cathedrals and ruins BUT when it comes to beaches, we take the cake. (Ibigay mo na. Sa […]


Golden Glow

How fitting is it that I’m typing this beach post taken at Boracay last month from my hotel room in Boracay now? Yes I’m back in the island again. I used to think I wasn’t a beach baby but it seems like I am. I can’t remember how many times I’ve visited this island already. […]


Photo Diary: Embrace The Sun with Nivea

Every summer, Nivea kicks off the season by giving us the sweetest escape to the country’s best beaches and resorts. This year, as you’ve probably already seen from my last few posts, we were whisked away to the breathtakingly beautiful island of El Nido, Palawan to not only have fun under the sun, but to […]


Pure Shores

Aside from the beautiful view and clear waters, what else makes the beach so attractive? I think it’s the lifestyle that comes with it–so carefree and relaxed. It’s as if it’s calling out to you to just let go and LIVE. You know that saying, “Dance like no one is watching. Love like you’ll never […]


Pretty Like A Painting

I’m still not over how pretty El Nido is. The word “pretty” doesn’t even do it justice! It’s simply breathtaking. That’s the word–breathtaking. Imagine waking up to this everyday. I remember the last time this thought entered my mind. It was when I saw the Swiss alps. What a stark contrast. From snowcaps to sandy […]
