VIANELLAS: Chic Flip-Flops to Wear on the Beach!

Negros’ favorite beach resort threw a beach festival and they did it in style!

Summer is over! But for the ladies who are still chasing that sun-kissed and Instagram-worthy photos on the beach, Vianellas has got you covered.

VIANELLAS, is a local flip-flop brand focused on simple, chic, and affordable beachwear by Negreñse designer Tanya Gonzales. The name itself has a witty meaning, “Viaje” a Spanish word referring to ‘travel’ and “Tsinelas” meaning ‘slippers’. This links closely to their philosophy of sharing the love for travel and the beach.

Their trendy designs are inspired by various famous beaches from around the world, such as Santorini, Santa Monica, Legzira, and Anzio.

Choosing the right sandals are a vital part of your travel wardrobe, and here’s why Vianellas would look good on our cute summer dress or even bikini.

KANTO Freestyle: Best Filipino Breakfast in Manila!

Late risers, rejoice! Feast on your fave breakfast food, any time of the day.

Kanto Freestyle is a 24/7 all-day breakfast concept featuring ridiculously affordable Filipino and Western fare. They offer pancakes, eggs Benedict, Spam, pork belly and the usual silog.

The owners wanted to revolutionize the kanto/karinderia image, by uplifting the same kind of breakfast items you’ll find in eateries all over the Philippines.

But why add the word “Freestyle” to “Kanto”? Because, here, you can mix and match your morning meal favorites. Make your own breakfast with different tapas, bacon strips, tocino and even have your eggs prepared just the way you like them—sunny side, scrambled, boiled or poached!

Kanto now has seven branches, and here’s why we love it…

Girona: Game of Thrones Film Location Guide!

Are you a GoT fan coming to Girona, Spain?

I was touring Barcelona at that time, when I had a geek out moment, as I found out one of the filming locations for Game of Thrones was just 30-minutes away from me! Braavos, Oldtown, and Kings Landing! If these places are familiar, then the historic medieval city of Girona might be worth a quick train ride away!

Girona, Spain is located 98 km from Barcelona near the border of France. You’ll see why the well-preserved historical city with its winding alleys, arches, towers and city walls makes it a perfect location for the HBO hit series.

Here’s my DIY travel guide from Barcelona to Girona…

And what better way to start off your week than with a mouthful of such sweet and tender lobsters at Marriot Café? Every Monday, beginning May until August, lunch and dinner, they’ll be serving Lobster All-You-Can in their buffets.

With so much to see and do, it’s tough to decide especially if you only have two days. Here’s a sample itinerary of my 2-days solo trip to Spain…
