After 14 years, I finally got a chance to come back and visit the Philippines for the first time. A lot of mixed emotions were involved as I was excited, afraid and nervous at the same time. But as soon as I saw my family from the Philippines, all of this went away and all our childhood memories were relived. I made a few outfits specifically for my traveling adventures and for this photoshoot, I wore an enchanted, flowy, off shoulder dress at Hinulugang Taktak – it is found in Antipolo City, Rizal where I spent a huge part of my childhood years growing up. Although, we are not allowed to swim because the water has is polluted, this gorgeous fall has become a national park where people hold concerts, weddings and other ceremonies here.What do you think of this outfit? Have you traveled anywhere this summer?

XO,

Hope y’all had a great 4th of July! Independence Day is probably one of my favorite holidays and although each year, I normally just got to a BBQ at my friend’s house; this year my friends and I did something different and actually watched the fireworks at the Rosebowl. We parked at the parking lot and had a mini picnic and watched the fireworks from there. You have to pay $30 per car – which isn’t that bad if you go with your squad and you can just hang out all afternoon as you wait for the fireworks. There were so many pretty fireworks that my photos don’t do them justice at all. For this year’s independence day, I made a one piece bathing suit using red and blue knit fabrics with white stars on them. What do you think about this look and what did you do this fourth of July?

XOXO,

Joy
