What you do not love about your skin,
I’ll love and I’ll love it always.
Always because in me,
There is no time for anything less.
throw your imperfections in a sea of diamonds,
and see for yourself, my love;
how well they swim
– Christopher Pointdexter
Cabana – /kəˈban(y)ə/
a cabin, hut, or shelter, especially one at a beach or swimming pool. Otherwise known as the epitome of relaxation, if you’re a beach bum like most Cebuanos are, of course.
Located at the ground floor of the Banilad Town Center, Cabana proudly houses everything beach-y from swim suits by Soak Swimwear to cover ups, sunnies and other merchandise perfect for your sun loving needs!
And if in case you can’t get your beach bum on, you can always give your nails the pampering they need at the Nail Island which is located inside the store.
Take a quick break from the hustle and bustle of the Metro and just sit back and relax inside the beach inspired nail salon while you enjoy their many services perfect for your tired hands and feet!
I dropped by Cabana this weekend and the interior, services and the over all feel of the place blew me away!
I indulged in a foot indulgence pedicure and a seaside rush manicure that afternoon and left with an intense longing to dip my feet in the water. But despite my lack for salt water, I now have pretty hands and feet and with my extremely hectic schedule is actually better. 😀

My body clock seems to be all wrong- the colder it gets, the less clothing I want to wear! And with the sane weather patterns officially out the window needless is to say of my fashion choices.
I think I’ve always been ironic like that. After all, I did name my dog Meow and I went throughout the Summer in long skirts and matching suits!
Besides, what else do I need to protect me from the rain? I’ve got everything I could ever need: a big hat to protect me from the rain, a coat to keep me warm and boots to keep my feet clean! (But let’s see how I feel about this when I’m down with the flu! lol)
Crochet cover up: Thrifted| Crop top: Forever 21| Boots: Moms’
Hat: Bought it from Gizelle during the Cebu In The Bag
On a more weather appropriate note: when trying to keep the Boho-chic vibe alive during the rainy season you can never go wrong with layering and maintaining earthy palettes and of course, to stand out: that one key piece!
Imagine this: long flowy dress + over sized patterned scarf + dark earth toned cover up + rain/ ankle boots
A geometric tunic blouse/ dress + faux fur vest + black stockings + boots
I’m still trying to soak up what’s left of the sun but I’ll be on my way pretty soon!
