Beauty Bar Mini Haul

It has been a long hot month of May! Seriously, it gets hotter every year. I live in Pasig and I constantly need to travel all over the city. The pollution and heat is all too much for the skin to handle. That's why summer means longer and more frequent showers for me - if I could just stay inside the shower all day long.
I have always been a fan of body wash and shower gels because I find them more moisturizing than ordinary soap. I often tend to purchase based on the smell. I gravitate towards fruity, particularly citrus or berry, scents more than floral ones. After checking Beauty Bar's online store, I got curious about these shower and after-shower products.

Our Little Ball of Sunshine

This is Akira, our 1 year old Shih Tzu! She just had a haircut last week and is feeling pretty and happy about it. We went for a very short cut sparing her tail and ears, so it appears that she has a little bob haircut going on.

We went to Eastwood and had our little photo shoot. Eastwood has a pet-friendly park where dog parents take their babies for a stroll.

'What was that?!'

Benefits of Tea - The Tea and Ukulele Bunch

I have always been a fan of tea more than coffee. I have been used to studying in a coffee shop with my usual Chai or English Breakfast Tea Latte. I just find it more relaxing and helpful when I study as compared to our good old coffee. The kick is not too strong compared with coffee but there is still that boost of energy enough to keep me going all throughout the day. The thing with coffee is that my body reacts weirdly to it - my eyes gets all sticky, I would experience mental blocks while reading, and I will be awake way way past my bedtime. I remember one time I was awake until 7 am when I drank a coffee jelly frappe from Starbucks. With that being said, I will always choose tea lattes over coffee as my study buddy.

Earlier this week, my workmates in one of my clinics and I decided to have a small tea break over ukulele cover songs. I tell you, the caffeine high is still on until 7 hours post tea break. 

While we're at it, here are some benefits a small bag of tea can give us.

Laiya - My First Dose of Vitamin Sea this Year

Hello everybody! Last weekend we celebrated my boyfriend's birthday at Llamar Beach Resort in Laiya, Batangas. It was only an overnight trip so we tried our best to compress as much activities as we can so it will be worth the long travel. Batangas is a good beach spot for Manileños looking for an overnight trip without flying. All photos here are taken using our trusty GoPro Hero 4.

My favorite shots are the ones taken during our Banana Boat ide. I think GoPro captured the beauty of the sea and the blue sky.
