Me in Boracay Island, Aklan in the Philippines – November 2014
Hello, dear friends. I just got back yesterday from a two-week trip to the Philippines. Our trip was short and yet, it was overall a fantastic travel experience. I, of course, traveled with my husband and we had such a great time visiting with my siblings who still live there. We also got to enjoy Boracay Islandwith its beautiful, white sand beach, fun entertainment and great Filipino food.
Here’s a photo of me and my husband enjoying our first parasailing experience in Boracay Island. This was a bit of a scary experience and yet, so much fun! I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and I finally got the courage to do it on this trip. Thanks to my ever-supportive, most lovable husband who came to parasail with me even though he wasn’t so sure he wanted to! (I love you sooo much, darling!) 😉
And just in time for this posting, I wanted to share this article from Total Beauty about the best-kept beauty secrets from all over the world — including healthy hair secrets from the Philippines! 🙂
