Blog Awards, Bantayan Island

4:33 AM

I do have an outfit post coming right up, but before that... Friends, do meet the little slice of tropical paradise known as Bantayan Island:

...where I will be spending the entire week in. Seriously, I am so psyched! Truth be told, I've always been in one with the beach-- I always seem to find my "true north" when I'm facing a wide horizon and the open sea. something about the beat of the waves and the white sand thats truly tranquil... and I can't believe I finally have a whole week to enjoy it, as I'm usually too swamped with stuff to be able to escape.

no need to worry, as it's not as "remote" as it looks-- there's of course a town proper, there's internet.. so expect to have real time updates on what everyone in the island is wearing. And by everyone, I do mean everyone-- Bantayan becomes one huge party hub this weekend, and I simply cannot wait to take my Style Spotting there!

those things said, I got a rather pleasant surprise from the always inspirational Tanya, the one behind Captivate Me ( these two "I Like You" awards. wow, definitely makes blogging more worthwhile when you know your efforts are genuinely appreciated by even a few.

In true blogger form, I now pass it on to some incredible new (and some not so new? hehe) bloggers i have just seen and met as of late, not just for being nice and accomodating (that's a given.. you guys have all been so sweet), but for having genuinely engaging posts and stories to share. you all actually do, so please keep it up.:)

Pearls in Your Hair (

Please continue to inspire, guys.:) anyway, i'm off to the island at around 2:30 am later (its already 7:30 pm)... i'm hoping you guys have a fabulous week as well! i can't wait to update you regarding my island trip.

  3. Ohhh, I'm jelous! My landscape is full of oak, birch and pine trees. This is quite beautiful in spring when everyhing is so green, but I would rather like to live in some exotic place with palms, ocean (not sea, in croatia the sea is nice but too dark and deep, there's no sand, just rocks), sand, sun sun sun! Have a nice weekend! Hugs.
