Weekly Photo Challenge: Ocean

This is a delayed Week 5 post, but the weekly photo challenge from The DailyPost hasn’t changed themes yet, so I guess I’m not too late after all. Anyway, this week’s theme is Ocean.

I like to think I’m a big beach bum underneath. There’s nothing more relaxing than being in a beautiful white sand beach, basking in the sun, feeling the fine sand on your toes and the breeze blowing through your hair. Throw in a good book and a chilled drink to enjoy while under the shade of a palm tree and I’m in heaven.

Thing is, despite the abundance of beautiful beaches here in the Philippines, I haven’t been to a lot… yet. That’s something I have to work into my bucket list somehow.

For this week’s challenge, here’s something taken about three or four summers ago at Puka Beach in Boracay where I had one of the best weekend getaways with my family and relatives. Yes, we were a fun, crazy bunch of 11!

It’s summer again and I can feel the summer heat beckoning me to hit the beach already. Best girl friends, if you’re reading this, where to this time?


Sunday morning

This morning B and I drove to MSU for Ate Di‘s wedding day. Okay, B drove and I rode shotgun, chatting with her nonstop during the one-hour drive. The wedding reception finished earlier than we expected so we had time for some picture taking fun at the Marawi Resort Hotel before barkada bonding with A and finally heading back to Iligan (me) and Cagayan de Oro (B).

So here’s today’s outfit post. Thanks B for the photos!

Save it for later

My not-so-little sister graduated from high school this afternoon. No wait, it’s past midnight as I write this so I guess I could say my not-so-little-sister graduated yesterday.

Ah, how time flies!

That same thought occurred to me when I rifled through my closet for something to wear and found this purple dress hanging there for over a year, unworn. I bought it for a wedding in Manila last year with a purple motif and to cut a long story short, I purposely left it here and bought something else there. So I never had a chance to wear it and no occasion has also arisen to give me reason to wear it. Well, I guess it was waiting and saving itself for my sister’s graduation day to make its debut. Haha.

I wore it with my new nude pumps which were surprisingly comfortable for their height. These heels were made for walking and standing! I’d have to say, the “tape trick” really worked. I learned that taping together your third and fourth little toes make wearing high heels a lot more comfortable because apparently it helps ease the pressure at the balls of your feet.  Neat, huh? And because of that, over 6 hours flew by with me in high heels and not secretly wincing from pain.
