The Best Clothing to Take on Vacation

If you flip through the pages of any fashion magazine, you’ll likely come across articles that tell you how to pack lightly for vacation. While those articles claim you only need a few things, read closer and you’ll see that you also need tons of accessories. Those accessories can add hundreds to your clothing budget and take up a lot of space in your suitcase too. Whether you head to the beach or the snowy mountains, there are a few universal pieces of clothing that you can get more use out of on your trip.

Cardigan Sweater

Instead of packing multiple jackets because you can’t predict the weather, add just one classic cardigan to your bag. Choosing one in a bright and bold color like lemon yellow or flamingo pink ensures that you stand out in any crowd. A cardigan sweater looks equally great with a little black dress or a pair of jeans. To make more of an impression, look for one with unique detailing like contrasting buttons down the front or a longer cardigan with a woven belt that ties in the front.

White Tee

What could be more universal than a simple white tee shirt? While you might pack dozens of tee shirts for your upcoming trip, a white tee shirt is a wardrobe essential that does you well on vacation. You can use it as a base layer when spending a lot of time outside in the cold. Tees made from cotton are great for wearing on warmer days too because the cotton helps you stay cool. Create an elegant look like a black miniskirt, a white teen and flats, or feel comfortable shopping the day away in jeans, sneakers and a white tee.

Leggings

Another wardrobe essential is a pair of leggings. Whether you like brightly patterned leggings, or you prefer basic black Sofra leggings, you can toss a pair in your suitcase without worrying about taking up a lot of space. Leggings will serve you well on both warm days and cold days too. You might wear a pair of capri leggings when sightseeing on a tropical island, but you may prefer a pair of fleece leggings for wearing on the slopes. While there are hundreds of pieces of clothing that you can take on vacation, make sure that you pack leggings, a white tee shirt and a cardigan sweater.

Your Skin at Every Age

What happens to your skin in your 20s, 30s and 40s and how to keep it looking healthy?

Aging isn’t a bad thing. Birthdays are great. But it’s important to have healthy looking skin no matter what age you are. Your face will go through these changes but there are also ways to prevent premature aging.

In Your 20s

Many will experience acne, even if it wasn’t an issue as a teenager. Pimples will appear on the lower face and along the jawline in particular.

To treat this, use any product with Niacinaminde, like Myra Vitawhite Facial Wash, to even out any red blotches and add radiance to the skin. Myra Vitawhite facial wash also has Vitamin E beads, which protect and nourish the skin for a healthy glow, and Biowhite Complex, derived from plant extracts that gently whiten the skin in as early as 1 week.

Taking care of your skin at this stage will determine how much damage your skin will have in your 30s and 40s. Products with Vitamin E are great to keep your skin supple and youthful.

In Your 30s

You’ll notice uneven skin tone with broken blood vessels and sun spots more, as well as fine lines and crow’s feet. This is the decade when your lifestyle habits from the past start to show on your face.

Hyperpigmentation, like melasma or brown patches that often occur on the forehead, cheeks, and chin, are a big concern for women in their thirties. It’s usually a result of too much sun exposure but it can also be caused by a change in hormones.

Make sure you wear sunscreen or use products with Vitamin E to protect your skin from sun’s harmful rays.

In Your 40s

At this age, your skin starts to get drier, which may mean more prominent lines and wrinkles.

Counter this with a high quality moisturizer to help improve hydration. Anything with peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid will gradually correct dark spots and brighten the skin as well. Take care of your skin with Vitamin E products to boost collagen production and prevent wrinkles.

Suggested Retail Price is Php 70.00 for a 50ml tube. It is available in all leading supermarkets and drugstores.

A friend of mine shared in here Facebook Account that she has a new business, a cafe located at Verano St, Purok 10, Valencia City. So when me and my #TeamGwapa friends had the time, we went to Ratz Box Cafe to check the place out.

Mt Mayon in Albay

I am from Mindanao, I have lived all my life in Mindanao. When I was young I dreamed of visiting different tourist spots in my own country because I used to see these beautiful places in my textbooks only. I thought I couldn’t visit such beautiful creations in my entire life and I am happy that I have set foot and took photos with these lovely God’s gifts to us.

Mt Mayon is an active volcano, it can be devastating, and sometimes it is scary, a lot of people have lost their lives when it erupted years ago but still I couldn’t help myself from saying “WOW” to this volcano with a symmetric conical shape.

The entrance fee was 10 or 20php per person. I really couldn’t remember because the only thing I can remember up until now is that when we arrived at the area, the clouds have suddenly make way and show us the beautiful Mt Mayon in all its glory. I can stay all day in the area just watching the beauty that Albay has to offer.

My husband told me a story that Mt Mayon will only show herself when you are beautiful and will be covered with clouds if you aren’t. He was scared at first because he assured me that I am beautiful so he was sure that Mt Mayon will show herself to us but on our way, we can see from afar that the volcano was covered with clouds. He was so happy when we arrived that Mt Mayon showed herself and proved to me that I am, indeed, beautiful.
