Tissle Tassel

2014-12-22 03.08.04 1A quick tip for any woman who feels like it’s almost impossible to incorporate red in their outfits because either

[1] You feel like red just isn’t your color

[2] You hate it when people ask you if it’s your birthday

[3] Ala Santa just isn’t your thing

There is hope for weirdos like us.

 For the slightly Erythrophobics like me, maybe a slight change of perception might just do the trick!

I’ve discovered that the quickest fix to my fear of the all bright red things can be fixed by playing down the hues and finding something more suitable for my skin tone, personality and style. Apparently it’s red’s somewhat lonesome and erotic cousin- Maroon.

 I’ve come to a realization that colors with darker undertones with hints of brighter colors do the trick for me. In this piece, I’m wearing hints of gold, pink and white which aren’t overbearing but still allow me to feel comfortably boho and girly at the same time- just how I like it!

Plus, the tassels on my top are a cute addition to my entire look. Don’t you think?

Soak Up @ The Nail Island

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. 😀
