My December

Garden party. At my Tita Tessa’s 50th, it was pretty magical.

I spent my holidays split between the city and the beach. It started with a surprise party for my Tita Tessa (her 50th) right after Christmas day. She was, as expected, very much surprised seeing her family and best friends all under one roof, or garden to be exact in an elaborate set-up fit for a wedding reception. We left for Boracay the next day, eager to dip our toes in the powdery white sand and getting a holiday tan. Though it was Signal No. 1 two days after and raining during NYE, it didn’t take away from the beauty of the island. All in all, it was a fantastic few weeks I won’t be forgetting about for a while. I’ll let the photos do the talking.

Got this dress from an African stall at a bazaar. It's so silky and comfy.
