Travel Tuesday...Arena Island

I absolutely adore the beach. I live in a country that has around seven thousand islands so I am really lucky to have numerous choices of beautiful sandy beaches to choose from. A few months ago one of my good friends told us about a deal that she found in one of those coupon/discounted websites. It was for a 3day/2night stay at Club Arena, Palawan. It was a really, really good deal and something that we couldn't pass up so we were like, let's go and book!

Cheat Day : Mac And Cheese with Thick Cut Bacon



I know almost everyone is into eating healthy these days. That includes me too - I've really been trying my best to eat well and cutting out all the bad food from my diet. But then sometimes, I crave for the not so healthy dishes. I think it's totally okay to break from your diet once in awhile and have a delicious and delightfully sinful cheat day. Having this yummy Mac N Cheese with Thick cut bacon (good lord, how much more sinful can you get? ) is definitely my idea of a fine cheat meal! The thick cut bacon is homemade, one of my friend's family makes it. Definitely tastes so much better than store brought ones! Read on to see how I made this!

Currently Coveting : Bar Carts

Horchow Hamilton Bar Cart

I've really been coveting a bar cart for the longest time. They add such a chic and also functional touch to any home! Since bar carts usually have wheels, they are an excellent way to serve drinks in a cocktail party! Another use for them can also be a for a dessert cart or also a place to put your cutlery if you're doing some sort of self-service style of entertaining. either way they look pretty and and very useful. Check out my favorite picks.

Whimsical Wedesdays : Alice in Wonderland

N2 Alice In Wonderland

I absolutely love Alice in Wonderland and I can't tell you how many times I have watched the Disney cartoon version. I've seen it so much so that I've practically memorized all the lines of the Mad Hatter and the Caterpillar (my two fave characters of the story!). When I stumbled upon these accessories from N2, I totally went wild.

They are the most adorable accessories ever! Imagine wearing earrings shaped like a tea set or the white bunny or Alice herself? All the pieces in this collection really captured  the whimsical vibe of the story, Check out the "Eat Me" bracelet!

Rainy day Essentials

Totes Bubble Umbrella

Here in my country there is no such thing as four seasons. This September I should be writing about "Fall favorites" or "Best boots for fall" but sadly we never get that kind of weather here. Living in a tropical country can only mean two things : heat and humidity. Oh and only two seasons too, Summer and Rainy Season. We are currently in the middle of the latter season and just last week we had a typhoon. It inspired me to write this post of Rainy Day essentials. These are the top three things that you shouldn't leave the house without during rainy season.

The rainy season could get really dark and depressing so why not brighten it up with these pretty and colorful umbrellas? Nobody ever said that necessities should be boring. I found the coolest Alexander McQueen umbrella, it's so chic - it has a skull handle. BUT, it is also rridiculousexpensive so it might not be so practical. Still, better to have lots of options!

Rain boots are also necessary. My primary reason for this is that I don't want to get my pretty shoes wet and dirty. A second important reason for this is for protection against diseases. Rainwater or worse flood water could be very,very dirty. And harmful. It's been known to cause some yucky diseases because the water that falls usually mixes with all the dirt and bacteria growing in the ground. Sounds gross but it is a sad reality.

Hunter Boots



And last but not the least, a raincoat! It's totally fine to pick the chic-est looking one out there as long as they serve their purpose. Also, since our country never gets cold, then the rainy weather is the perfect excuse to bust out that water proof trench coat that you were saving for a trip to Paris.

What do you guys think? I hope y'all keep dry and most importantly safe this season!
