Give Me Some Shimmer

Hey there you guys, it's been a while since Clarice's last fashion blog. Still, you know what they say, it's better late than never.

Clarice wanted to keep a fresh look today but gives that sexy yet classy touch. She has been always a fan of the preppy look. It really does suit her personality she's the prim and proper type and she also has to uphold her profession of being an accountant.
Read on to find out more about Clarice's look!
For her look today, Clarice wanted to try out her new mid-high heels which she got from People Are People in Ayala Center Cebu for only P699. Great deal isn't it? We are all aware of the fact that the store has a branch here in Davao, so why bother flying all the way to Cebu to buy a shoe? The answer, not all stocks are available in one store.

That's why when you shop, and you have something in mind but cannot find it or something that's better anywhere, patience is always a virtue. You'll find that right shoe someday somehow in the most outrageous way. This is our shopping tip for all those not-so-shop-a-holics out there. Hey if you think deeper, it's not just a shopping tip but an important life lesson as well.
Going back to the look. It's all about the shimmer today so Clarice put on her Blue sequined  sleeveless boxy top which she got from the SM store (Ecoland) at P599.95. It's not a bargain but it gives that New-York-woman touch. She also puts on her beige pair of slacks to achieve the classy look. Quick tip: the slacks are from Forever 21 in SM Lanang Premier, at the sales rack. Top top it all off, she wears a gold bangle.

Her shoes aren't really beaded as you can see on the photo. if you take a closer look, it's actually a chain of metals embellished on the straps which gives a hint of fierceness to the look, however it has been toned down by the neutral color of her mid-highs (heels).

Lookbook: Black and White


Let's all round up in our matiné hats and enjoy the rest of the summer season in Davao!

Janvie is back with his #OOTD sesh and this time he's taking it a notch higher. Well you gotta admit he doesn't really do mediocre. It's not just with the clothes he's wearing but also with the events he's been planning and the accounts he has been managing at work.

Being the fun guy that Janvie is, he wanted to look drop dead serious with a hint of fun underneath in his chosen look today. Read on to find out more!


Janvie is wearing a feminine matinĂ© hat which he bought in Forever 21 for P900 yesterday. He got so pumped up on wearing a feminine hat that could create a masculine look that he searched high and low in his closet to find what could possibly go right with the hat as a benchmark for this look.

Viola! A black and white outfit! Janvie wants to look serious today so he got out his black loafers, put on a black slim-fit pair of slacks to contour his legs and a White fit jacket to match. Quick tip: the jacket was from Forever 21 too. He wears his Grayscale cotton shirt which he bought from Oxygen for P490 to compliment his outfit.


You may be thinking before, "Can a guy possibly pull off wearing a female hat?" The answer, flat-out YEAH! Of course, in fashion, the sky is the limit, specifically when we're talking about heels!

Kidding aside, style is innate in everyone. How the crowd reacts to a specific style, that is uncertain. But who cares what others think. As long as you feel confident in what you wear, there's nothing wrong with it. As long as your happy with the look, you're good to go and as long the Philippines is still a free and democratic country, there's no harm in wearing something that reflects your own personal style.

The Unexplored Paradise in Tagum City



Still craving for more this summer? Well there's a great place to achieve that "Best-Summer-Adventure Ever" concept you've been hoping for.
Roughly a 20-minute drive by car off the main road going to Tagum City, you'd find a grassy hideaway for the family. The resort has a registration area which is roughly 5 minutes away from its amenities to ensure proper declaration of guests. They also value accessibility by providing shuttles to transfer guests from the registration or welcoming areas to its many facilities.



At Banana Beach Resort, you will have a chance to explore a different type of summer fun. With the whole resort nestled in a 760-hectare banana plantation, and the many aquatic and land activities that the resort offers, you would not want to miss anything out and might even try them all!

After a fun night during the first half of Trancesisyon 2015, my brother and I got the chance to accompany the organizing committee of the party for a trip in Banana Beach Resort.

One of the reort's accommodations was its Al Fresco rooms, which is actually an open room good for 3 pax and costs P5,000 a night. We're not really a fan of the open-air rooms because we don't like the idea of being bitten by mosquitoes. Still, we had a different perspective when we tried resting in one of the Al Frescos and got the chance to admire the beauty of the shoreline since our room was situated near the beach front. The resort has also provided for the personal needs and toiletries of its in-house guests such as towels, shampoo, soap and even mosquito repellant lotions, which actually makes it very convenient for overnight stayers.



We had our brunch at the resort's dining hall where Filipino delicacies were served. The resort had accommodating staff and provided us with good food, friendly gestures and of course quality service that each guest hopes to be treated.


Their dining hall is actually situated near the pool so that guests can just order when they don't feel like walking far to grab something to bite. It's an open-air space to allow guests experience the summer breeze but though it was hot, you'll hardly feel the heat under the nipa roofs, that's also a plus when you set-up a dining hall in a resort for guests.



However, the food may be a bit pricy but it does taste good, so it just compensates the price.

Our tour started off with a brief history of the whole property, that it used to be a huge banana plantation, where coconut trees were planted near the sea shore then later on transferred to another location and the efficiency of the fruits being produced by the trees due to its breed.
It was informative and fun. The resort provided us a van take us to different areas for the tour and got to appreciate nature.

Other people are truly fond of the exotic. In Banana Beach Resort, you can find this real wild boar skull which the tour guide showed. This was a reminder of how people used to catch wild pigs back in the day and was now illegal. The resort have also made it a point to protect wildlife inhabitants as it houses a lot of specie.

Afraid of heights? Well, don’t be because the ½ kilometer walk on the resort’s hanging bridge will really take your breath away. Imagine yourself walking in the middle of the forest but you’re not walking on the ground, oh no, the resort raised the stakes higher by letting guests overcome their fear of heights through the hanging bridge. 



Of course, you won’t be going at it alone. One of the resort’s personnel will be guiding you and true enough, he really knows his way around those woods.


One of the best packages you could take while at the resort is its forest tour where you would explore its natural grown forest and get to know interesting facts about the trees, plants, animals and bodies of water covered by the resort’s property. 


The resort as a whole does not only focus on relaxation, it also brings about fun and excitement. With the different extreme sports which the resort offers, you'll hardly get bored.

Two of the best things we've tried were knife throwing and gun firing.

Certainly, Banana Beach was one of the best places we've ever been this summer and hope to come back again some other time. For those of you who haven't gotten enough of the summer fun fever, visit the resort now and discover a hidden paradise in Tagum City with your friends and family.
