Holiday '17 Gift Guide Home Edition

Holidays are here once again. It's the season of gift giving and what a wonderful idea would that be if you are gifting your friend, relatives or even your workmates home decors / furnitures? Step up the game this year and surprise them with items that are wonderful for the home and I'm pretty sure he or she will treasure it. I curated the collage above to help you with some ideas on what to buy as a Christmas present. Most of them are on SALE too so better shop them before they sold out. Happy shopping!

Easy Breezy

When your tour guide offers to take photos of you after the tour, don't miss that opportunity. Traveling alone is quite a challenge especially when you are having a good outfit day and you are just too shy to ask somebody to take your photos. I love Mexico's tropical weather which means skin is highly visible. Hence this post's title, Easy Breezy. This viscose top that I got from Asos is definitely on the list of the comfiest clothing that I own. Super light weight, it's enough for your skin to breathe and it's simple print makes it stylish. Also, can we talk about my new favorite footwear that I got on Asos too. I call this pair Jesus's sandals. It just reminds me of the old times. Very comfortable and I love the strap details of it and I also got a another pair in brown and in suede. Can't get enough of it. Defintiely missing the summer weather.

Tulum Ruins

On my third day in Tulum, I woke up early and visited the Tulum Ruins. The site opens at 8 in the morning and me trying to avoid the upcoming crowd, I went there early. I booked a private tour guide and he showed me this beautiful historical site. The perks of coming in early includes having the place all to yourself, wandering around the site with zero tourists in sight. It was an intimate tour, peaceful and yet full of interesting information to grasp. The tour was about 45 minutes. I was fortunate to have a wonderful tour guide, beautiful tropical weather, and the fresh ocean breeze. After the tour, I went down to the beach and enjoyed the waves rushing through my feet and watching the children play with the waters despite the huge waves. Another one for the books. I would highly recommend to visit this Mayan wonder and explore the beautiful architectures evident in this area.

Valladolid, Yucatan

On the last leg of my first day of touring, we explored the colorful and vibrant city, which is Valladolid located in the Yucatan Peninsula. Perfect downtime after a long day. Exploring the park with various activities happening such as a man sketching a portraiture of a beautiful lady, people buying churros in food stalls, people watching people, and kids roaming freely. A beautiful church also located near the park. A city as energetic as the vibrant walls visible in every alley. Despited the short span of time being in this beautiful city, I definitely had a fun time taking pictures. This scenery reminded me of the Philippines. Everything seemed so familiar to me when I was there. Valladolid, you are a pure charm!
