I’ve been swamped with work for the past couple of weeks and I just needed a break. I booked a trip to Sagada via Travel Factor (they take care of the food, transportation and itinerary). It’ll be my second there and the activities are pretty intense. Not really the “vacation” I was looking for but at least I’ll be away from the city! It’s just what I need right now! Let me leave you guys with this trekking-friendly outfit before I leave tonight!
Backpack from Electric | Bring a backpack that has enough room for everything you’ll need on a day hike: food, water, extra clothing, etc. Available at Stoked Inc.
Board shorts from Rip Curl | Wear board shorts, not cargo shorts, jogging pants or jeans if you intend to swim or get wet. Available at Stoked Inc.
Hiking hat from Rip Curl | The brim is wide enough to protect you from the sun (sunburn is not fun!) as well as protect you from the rain in wet conditions. Available at Stoked Inc.
Sneakers from Cushe | For the long bus ride and tours (don’t wear this when you’re trekking or caving), wear light and comfortable shoes like these ones from Cushe. They make good shoes that conform to your foot’s natural shape, ensuring comfort, protection and stability.
Rash Guard from Rip Curl | You can also wear a rash guard to protect yourself from the sun, rashes and bruises! It’s also good for trekking because it’s lightweight, flexible, durable and it dries quickly! Medyo nakakapagod lang mag-stomach in. LOL
Always expect that you will get wet due to the mist created by the falls—or it might rain while trekking! The weather in Sagada is pretty unpredictable! Available at Stoked Inc.
Surf Slipper Kick Canvas from Cushe | For the trekking and spelunking part of the trip, I’ll change into these babies from Cushe! They provide enough ankle support, breathability and traction—you need em to avoid losing your balance, twisting an ankle or falling off a cliff! I wore these when I went trekking in Bicol a few months ago and it didn’t fail me!

I love blogging. I can say that I am very passionate about it. Blogging gives me a unique sense of excitement. It keeps me motivated, driven and focused on what I want to achieve in life. When I started blogging in July 2009, never in my wildest dreams did I think my blog would be what it is today. What started out as a hobby turned out to be my passion (and profession).
Another thing that I absolutely love about blogging is the fact that I could be on vacation across the globe & still work on my blog. I enjoy taking photos, styling outfits, attending events, collaborating with different brands, meeting different people in the industry and sharing my passion with my readers. Everyday I get to experience something new so it never gets boring for me. No, it has not always been smooth sailing but I’ve learned to focus on the good stuff.

With speeds of up to 12 mbps, I can check my emails and update my blog wherever I am! And it’s designed by THE Kenneth Cobonpue! The Tattoo Prepaid Lifestyle Stick retails for only php1,295.
Here’s another passion of mine—food! Seriously, if I wasn’t a style blogger, I’d probably be a food blogger! I really enjoy trying out different restaurants and dishes. My friends and I had dinner at one of our favorite restaurants—Village Tavern! (Located at Bonifacio High Street Central)
There’s nothing like good food and good conversations with people who share the same passion as you. We also got a 500-peso discount because of my Tattoo-Enjoy Privilege Card! How cool is that? :)

Sorry for the random title. I bought this plaid button down shirt last year because it reminded me of fruitcake—and Christmas. I was supposed to wear it on Christmas Eve with already a style in mind. I was planning to go preppy and wear it with chino pants and loafers but I still ended up looking grunge, lol. I guess I just have to embrace my personal style!
What I’m wearing: plaid shirt (Topman), pants (Topman), cap (Super), backpack (Herschel Supply Co.), sunnies (SM Accessories), iphone case (Mr. Brussel Sprout), boots (Forever 21 Men). Hype this on lookbook.nu here.
