Farm Girl OOTD

When was the last time you have visited a farm? If you are living in a busy city or in the capital like me, it isn’t common to have occasions to leave school and work just for a day or two in the countryside. More often than not, urbanites only have a chance to explore provinces and the rich fields there during travel assignments and holidays. Since this is a very rare opportunity, I collected those photos below to remember how my day tour at Gourmet Farms was like. The photos were taken at Gourmet Farms in Silang, Cavite.

Escape the Heat in Baguio

It is officially summer and images of beautiful white sand beaches, cool cerulean sea, colorful swim wears and fresh fruit shakes can easily come to mind. To be a little different, I chose to be in a colder clime and escape the heat. For the second time this year, I went to the summer capital, Baguio City. To adapt to the cooler weather in this region, I donned a slightly warm sweater over a girly blue skirt. To be comfortable walking while sightseeing, I used my comfortable and bright sneakers to take me around the city.   Impressions of a Read More …
