It was established in 1605 by the legendary Nene (Kodai-in) in memory of her late husband Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who is one of Japan’s greatest historical figures. Compared to the temples we’ve visited so far, this one looks […]

Ishibei Koji Lane

Whenever my sister and I travel together, we already have our designated roles. She prepares our itinerary, complete with photos and descriptions so that I can match my #OOTDs to the sceneries. And I, on the other hand, have to find ways on how to get to these places. This street known as the Ishibei-Koji […]

Travel Diary: Kyoto’s Kiyomizu-Dera

Putting the travel diaries from Japan on pause first because as usual, it’s taking me forever to go through the thousands of photos I took on this trip. So in the meantime, let me share with you a recent #OOTD I wore last week. As you can see, I have a nifty backpack with me […]

Irresistible

You know what’s irresistible? Sales. End of season sales of my favorite stores–Mango included. Just when I decided I’ll be taking a hiatus from shopping, sales just keep popping up left and right. Oh my poor wallet, I guess it’s going on a diet. (Hey, that rhymes!) But really, come to think of it, I’m actually saving a […]

Outdoor Fitness Camp With Roxy

It’s no secret that whenever I’m at the beach, I just laze around all day and stare into the sunset. All that hard work I put into achieving a fit physique immediately goes down the drain because I just eat, sleep, sunbathe, repeat. But at Roxy’s Outdoor Fitness Girls Camp, it’s the opposite. We did […]
