MATABUNGKAY BEACH HOTEL RELAUNCH AND REVIEW

I was quite hesitant to accept the offer to spend my weekend at Matabungkay to cover the relaunch of the Matabungkay Beach Hotel.

I was almost dead-set on saying no but 3 days before departure, I suddenly began to miss the beach so at the last minute, I decided to opt in.

Still, I had very low expectations because of the unfavorable reputation this place has been receiving over the past several years.

The road leading up to the resort didn't help ease my apprehensions either. It was littered with shanties, sari-sari stores and not so appealing resorts along the way.

But once we entered the actual hotel compound, things began to appear more promising...

OOTD: HOW TO TRANSITION YOUR FALL WARDROBE FOR SUMMER

Most of us can't afford to shop for a new wardrobe each season and sometimes, finding a sweet spot in between transitional periods can be tricky especially when your closet consists mostly of blacks, whites and grays like mine.

The arrival of summer had me baffled at first but I think I've finally found a way to incorporate my "mostly fall wardrobe" into looks that are summer appropriate.

Read more for tips! ☺

progress pre-school GOLD "I Choose" twitter giveaway!

Summer is here and I am soooo happy I don't have to wake up at 5am anymore to prepare breakfast! :P

I've really been enjoying the extra hours of sleep and our more relaxed schedule since school let out. But that's just me, my daughter is the exact opposite.

She's been on vacation for just a few weeks and yet she's already learned how to swim, surf and dance.

As if that wasn't enough, football and voice lessons are also on her agenda as well as many others.

Just talking about it already makes me and my wallet tired but I couldn't be happier or prouder to have raised such a driven little girl!

how much would you pay for a wedding dress?

How much are you willing to pay for a wedding gown?

How much is too much for a dress you're hopefully only going to wear once in your entire life (the odd halloween not included :P)?

Kitchie was commended for choosing a gown that only cost P700. Although she looks great and comfortable in it, I think she could've done better.

But of course that probably wasn't her priority but being the nosy person that I am, I decided to go looking for better option that are also pretty affordable.

Think less than P10,000.
