When In Tagaytay

There's a new hotel in town that you ought to visit when in Tagaytay, and I'm so happy to be one of the first people to share with you first dibs about this beautiful place.


Welcome to Escala Hotel and be stunned by the breathtaking view of the Taal Lake and Volcano.



Thanks to the architects of Escala, our family was accommodated a few weeks ago to stay in this hotel even if it wasn't fully opened to the public yet. It's as if we had the place all to ourselves.




The infinity pool is an architectural masterpiece. So much good vibes I must say.



Just look at how it glows at night. Perfection.


The lobby was really cozy, with couches all around for guests to relax with a view.
Definitely enjoyed the cool breeze of December when we stayed here.






Wake up in Paradise with these various room accommodations.

Deluxe Room


Chic and Polished.
34 square meters
3 maximum number of paying guests 
2 children allowed



Executive Room



Checkout the glass window of the bathroom. You're in for a show.
79 square meters
4 maximum number of paying guests 
2 children allowed



Prestige Room

109 square meters
4 maximum number of paying guests
2 children allowed


Barkada Room

You know what to do. Ideas are limitless. 
Time to call out your best buddies for a staycation.



Some activities you can enjoy when in Tagaytay are Boating, Horseback Riding
and visiting Tagaytay Highlands Country Club.





These activities are definitely best enjoyed with a group. 
At the same time you get to discover more about yourself.










When you've reached the top, breathe in , breathe out, and let the view leave you in awe.




Definitely a yes for selfies. Such a chill weather when we went here.


A volcano surrounded by a lake. Nature truly moves you with its beauty.




Pack yourself with energy by enjoying breakfast at the hotel or
grab lunch at Josephine's, just a few minutes away from the hotel.



An obligatory family photo, our behaved version, lol.




Escala Hotel is located at Purok 102, Poblete St., Barangay Maharlika West, Tagaytay

Worry Free Vacation

We all dream of living the good life. The kind that doesn't need any compromise.
That is why, I've created a little diary of my own for you to learn a thing or two.


Dear Diary, 
I know... I know.  here I go again with all my travels. 
Yes, I am very much exposed to the scorching heat, pollution of all sorts and of course... 

... my worst nightmare: getting bitten by mosquitoes. Aside from it being an eyesore
 and it being very itchy, I'm afraid that I might get Dengue.
Just look at how big the mosquito is, which I caught on camera :(

I should have listened to my parents when they said to bring mosquito repellents. 
What a regret. They certainly know best.


Luckily my travel buddy packed with her some OFF! Overtime Insect Repellent Lotion
She asked me to apply it liberally to my skin to protect me from
 any more of those crazy mosquito bites. 

Judging by the look on my face, I actually enjoyed how cool and light
 the DermCool formula of OFF! feels on my skin. Plus points for the refreshing scent! :)

She also brought with her Off! Aqua Spritz which she says is harder to find nowadays. 
It's like spraying perfume. Totally a must have as well.


So there you go, thanks to OFF! Overtime Insect Repellent Lotion (my lifesaver),
I was able to go boating and horseback riding without any second thoughts. 

The moment I applied OFF! , I had 8 hours of nonstop protection from Dengue Mosquitoes.
That's all I needed for a worry free vacation. 

After all. if I ever do fall from a horse or the boat, it might be gravity
 telling me to lose weight. Better that than getting sucked by 'monsters'. LOL


Now you know what to pack when you're outdoors.
So grateful that OFF! Overtime Insect Repellent Lotion is also dermatologically-tested.
We all deserve the best care possible and I'm grateful that Off! knows best.


Love,

A Beautiful Escape

Just a few weeks ago, one of my blog readers messaged me saying that she finds my blog as a "happy distraction". She felt that with the places I explore, it's as if she herself has been there. Readers like her are my kind of inspiration , that is why despite my busy schedule, I always find time to go back to my first love, and that is blogging about fashion, travel and lifestyle.


So here's another travel escapade I'd like you to explore with me.
Welcome to Pico de Loro


If you need to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, 
then this beach resort can be your safe haven.


With more or less 1.5 hours drive from Manila, 
my family and I stayed in Pico Sands Hotel.


   

We stayed in a Premier Lagoon View Room.
Thank you Ms. Ciara Role for the kind accommodation.




Since we arrived lunchtime, then what better way to chill
than dine in a Mediterranean setup courtesy of Pico Bar.


Just a snippet of what we ate, this is just 1/3 of it :)


Now that our tummies are happy, 
it's time to hit the beach.


I'm wearing a halter maxi dress by ROMWE.
I love how calming the color of the dress is.
It's as if I belong to this island. (just kidding)
I'm no beach babe, just taking a break from all the stress.


A view like this is simply breathtaking <3



And I can't help but pose for selfies.
Wearing my Melissa slippers <3



If you prefer some indoor activities instead,
then the clubhouse has various amenities that you can avail of.


And of course, don't miss out on the swimming pools.
If you have some kids, then this can be your option.


Or enjoy the infinity pool.




Perhaps  you can also try kayaking, paddle-boarding or
even a pony ride for your outdoor activities.


This is where we had our sumptuous dinner 



Pico de Loro is located in Hamilo Coast, Nasugbu Batangas


I'm glad I was able to spend it with my family.




Stay tuned for more fashion and travel posts this coming 2017 <3
