Travel this Holiday in Style | Giveaway Collaboration

In less than 30 days, we will be celebrating the biggest holiday in the country – Christmas season. During this time, we are all busy finishing tasks before 2013 ends, making and editing our Christmas shopping list, fixing our schedules for dinners and parties, as well as booking flights and accommodations for our most anticipated getaway for this year. As the big day comes nearer, we found ourselves excited and anxious at the same time that sometimes we forgot to pay attention to small details i.e., our travel hygiene kit, cosmetics, and fashionable outfits.

To inspire you for your upcoming escapade, I am “shamelessly” sharing you some of my photos taken last weekend.

In travelling, it is important to have a carry-on bag spacious enough to accommodate your necessities. It has to be stylish, too! A fashionable bag will give you a rush of excitement to travel again whenever you see it.

For this shoot, I used this trendy 3D cartoon luggage bag which I got from Neon Factory. I love how it makes me look forward for my next adventure.

Isn’t the bag lovely? If you can notice, it is big. Perfect for us girls who tend to overpack!

In addition to a chic travel bag, I do believe that owning a beautiful pair of shoes can take you to wonderful places as well. Do you agree? A friend told me that she hoards gorgeous pairs since these will only demand her to travel to amazing countries.

If you are wondering where I got these shoes, this lovely pair was from SOTD_PH. It was my first time to purchase shoes online and was happy with the result! The shop only sells quality products in affordable price and standard shipping fee. The owner is also very kind and attentive – she got through my inquisitive-customer phase!

However, one cannot be completely stylish if she will not pay attention to her makeup. Let’s admit the ugly truth – appearance is important whether we want to look as natural as we can. You don’t have to wear a dictionary-thick makeup and bloody red lipstick to turn heads. Cosmetic products are created to enhance one’s beauty so there is no harm in using them. For a tip, just go with natural hues to add a bit of shimmer and blush to your face if you will go swimming for example.

Holidays and travelling seem to be treated as a package these days; one cannot exist without the other. As much as we don’t want to be stressed overthinking the things that we need to prepare for upcoming escapes, it will not hurt to look good, happy and youthful by simply being stylish and beautiful.
