When I first picked this book, I was not aware of its already growing popularity. I simply decided to purchase it purely based on a prior recommendation from my friend’s instagram post. For a while now, I’ve been searching for the perfect book. Something that would make me want to just turn page after page, bring me to laughter and tears, and at the end it would leave me wanting more. This was probably the first book I read all summer, simply because it was able to fulfill all of those requirements. So much so that from the time I bought the book to the time I finished it, it never left my side. I can’t wait to read it all over again. I HIGHLY recommend this book. No more spoilers. Just pick it up and read it. It’s worth your money. :)

I was privileged to be invited to another special dinner at Prime 101 a few days ago. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ve probably heard me gush about how amazing the food is there. I haven’t been back there since the grand opening last year so I was extremely excited to be back.
During the event:
Look at that buffet! I can actually say that I tasted everything on that buffet table and it was so good that I didn’t even feel guilty about eating all of it.
I really do love the accent of those bright yellow garden chairs.
After the event:
Stay tuned to the outfit post of this event!
That bright yellow chair.
Outfit post tomorrow!
The previous post, showed the beauty of Fairmont hotel. In this post, I decided to show my activities during my stay.
Their gym was BEAUTIFUL. I’m not really a gym junkie, so even I was quite surprised that their space made me want to work out. Complete with apples, chilled bottled water, towels and hi-tech machines. Haaaay. If only I could work out like this all the time.
Follow me on Instagram is you haven’t yet! @Nicolilala
Besides the gym and swimming in the pool, I didn’t get to really do or explore as much. But, I’m not complaining! Some R&R with the family is always good!!
Outfit of the afternoon:
Bikini top from Forever21 | Old black skirt | Payless flats
Props to my daddy who took SLR shots like it wasn’t his first time. Hahaha!
After a long wait, I finally got my pool time and full on summer outfit post. Safe to say, I am a happy little girl. Heehee.
As promised, a hotel themed blog post. One my last hotel post, I stayed at the Marriott Hotel. This time I was privileged to stay one night at the Fairmont hotel in Makati with my parents and my baby sister. This five star hotel did not did not disappoint: the food, service and amenities were all on point! Here are some photos from my overnight stay:
As much as possible, our family almost never spends on food whenever we stay at hotels; opting to eat at a nearby mall instead.Which would explain my surprise when my dad told me that we would be having lunch at Fairmont’s very own Long Bar. I am happy to report that unlike other hotels, Fairmont’s food servings are quite big and trust me when I say that they were scrumptious!

During the last week of April, my best friend’s sister and one of good friends, Kathryn Alejandrino, celebrated her 18th birthday. Although it was her birthday party, Kate had quite a number of guests to attend to and so we didn’t get to have our picture taken together. I actually reblogged an entire photo set of her gorgeous face here.
Photos from the event:
My outfit for that night:
It was a house party, and so I didn’t want to be over dressed. Shorts and Nikes always form the chillest combination.
H&M top || NAVA printed shorts || Nike Shoes || Vintage bag || Tissot watch || Necklace was an old gift from the birthday girl

Don’t forget to show your mom just how much you love her! Happy mother’s day to all the lovely mommas out there!
Oh! And for all my Filipino readers, vote wisely tomorrow!
Last week, my older sister officially graduated from the University of the Philippines. Although she technically finished her studies last October, she had to wait almost 6 months before she could march her way on out of college. As seen on my instagram post, I am immensely proud of my sister’s accomplishments. Despite all the petty arguments we’ve had as sisters, I still look up to her at the end of the day. I couldn’t be anymore proud of her. I love you, Stef!
Obligatory group shot:
I wore flats to the actual graduation because I knew the ceremony would be long and I’d have to run all over the place taking pictures.
Mango dress || Bvlgari clutch || Sweet Escape Manila necklace || Syrup heels
Dresses with pockets are like the niftiest little things ever! They make me feel like I’m wearing overalls.
