I've started a new passion project. I have started a new Instagram account and hashtag called #nofiltertravel.

I also share fellow instgrammers' and traveler's photos  when they use the hashtag.

The LBS : The Little Black Skirt

You know how there's the classic LBD? The Little Black dress  is definitely one of the most worn item in any woman's closet. It's chic, effortless and so easy to throw on when you feel like you have absolutely nothing to wear. I make sure my closet is well stocked with different styles of the LBD. 

Lately though, I have discovered something. The LBS! Or as what I like to call it, the Little Black Skirt. I  found that I  have been reaching for my LBS more and more often. And I realized that this is one item you should definitely stock up on in different styles, shapes and variety.

Travel Tuesday : Old Manila

The Manila Catheral

I can safely  say that I have been to at least 40 countries in my lifetime but I am ashamed to say that I have not traveled around my own country as much as that.  There are sooo many places all over the Philippines that I have yet to explore and discover. I mean, I've already known all along that my country has the most amazing beaches and magnificent nature spots. I always used to think that it is only known for jusst these kinds of spots and that we don't really have any old buildings and palaces and monasteries like other countries do. Last Weekend, my sisters and I decided to hire a car and driver and tour Old Manila, The oldest part of our capital. I was pretty surprised to see that we also had our own kind of old cultural spots that had nothing to do with beaches!

Summer Hair and Outfit Ideas

I've been looking to change my hairstyle lately. I am dying to get some blunt bangs and a new hair color to go with it. I always have a hard time deciding whilst at the salon on which hair color to get. Good thing I stumbled upon Madison Reed Company. They are a hair dye company that makes healthier hair dyes. They  even have a feature where you input your current hair profile and they give advice on which color would suit you and your hair.. This is the color that came out for mine. It's called Catania Brown.

Chicken Stirfry with Toasted Almonds

I recently made this chicken stir fry dish that is super easy to make! It tastes really good too! It's basically just some chicken breast sauteed in Asian flavors with string beans and toasted almonds. What I do is roast some chicken breast ahead with just salt, pepper and olive oil. I roast it with the bone in. It makes a huge difference to the taste if you cook chicken breast with the bone in as it comes out more moist and tasty. I learned this from one of my faves, Ina Garten. She always recommends to cook chicken breast with the bone and skin in. Then after you can just take the bones out and skin (if you don't' like it) and then use the cooked chicken in salads and any other recipes that calls for breast. Read more below to see the rest of my dish!
