Travel Essentials with Laneige Perfect Renew Travel Set

Sponsored Advertorial Packing for travelling trips can be tedious. I spent time picking and matching the clothes I need to bring for my trip, and making sure I bring extra clothings in the event that I need them urgently, but most of the time I came back home with a few sets of clothes that I’ve never wore. haha~ Another important item that I cannot miss out when I travel would be my skincare products. Personally, I have a few skincare products which i use daily and they are mostly my facial wash, moisturiser, toner, sunblock and the list go on and on… But with the Laneige Perfect Renew Travel Set, it gave me so much convenience! The Laneige Perfect Renew Travel set comes with five essential products that help to achieve clear, healthy and young-looking skin. I LIKE~~~ Multi Cleanser (30ml) This multi-cleanser not only helps to cleanse and exfoliate your skin, it acts as a makeup and sunscreen remover. Especially the ladies would love this as they do not have to bring additional …

Unravel Travel to Kalibo!

Whenever I told my friends that I’ll be flying to Kalibo, these are the two reactions I received from them. One, huh? where is this place? Two, Oh~ so you are going Boracay?

Staycation At 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay. A Hostel or A Hotel?

Sponsored Review What do you look for when coming to accommodation during your travel trips? I am sure most people goes for hotels right? Hotels can be rather pricey at times and if you are travelling alone or with a partner and would like to look for another alternative at a cheaper price, i guess a hostel will be good for you. Usually the first impression of a hostel will be very budget, very run down, not well maintained, have to share rooms with others etc, which is true as i have that impression too when it comes to hostel. BUT! after i went for my staycation at 5footway.inn Project Boat Quay, im quite impressed and that totally change my impression of a hostel.
