Where is your ultimate summer destination?

My favorite destination, at any time of the year, is a long stretch of sand, by the sea, and in the Philippines this is certainly plentiful.


What are the three items you absolutely need to pack for that trip?

The first is flattering swimwear, ranging from local gems to the mix-and-match options of popular brands like Erès. I prioritize both style and comfort in my selection.


Next, a reliable beach tote is essential. It should be spacious enough to hold my go-to tanning lotion, sun-protection essentials, my children’s drinks, a face towel, and cover-ups for both myself and my kids. A good tote is crucial to prevent leaks or scratches, ensuring everything stays organized and protected. Some of my favorite brands for totes include Longchamp, Ethnique, and my ever trusty Moroccan basket straw bags.


Lastly, chic yet functional sandals are a must. They should provide good traction to prevent slips in wet areas while complementing the overall look I’m going for, creating a stylish silhouette from head to toe.

Where is your ultimate summer destination?

For me nothing beats our local beaches! The Lind in Boracay, El Nido Palawan, and Balesin will always tempt me to go back again and again.


What are the three items you absolutely need to pack for that trip?

My Shiseido sunscreen is an essential for me. Sunscreen protects your face and body from harmful UV rays. I also like to bring my favorite sunglasses and bathing suits for my OOTDs.

Where is your ultimate summer destination?

Anywhere in Europe - i still want somewhere sunny as a tropical girl but colder because i just can’t take the delirious heat in Manila anymore!


What are the three items you absolutely need to pack for that trip?

1. Anessa Day Serum/Sunscreen - dssvcant be without this!

2. Makeup kit with my Hourglass Concealer, Charlotte Tilbury highlighter, and Guerlain lipstick I use as a blush too

3. Rory & Sloan Croft bag that I use as a travel bag to fit all my essentials and more!
