Law School Ready Outfit from EricDress

When I started out in law school, I was definitely confused as to what I should wear. We have a strict dress code as I am enrolled in a Catholic school and we were required by my college to wear corporate attire every single day. During the first few months, I found myself wearing pants and collared tops which I totally hated. I found it hard to endure the heat during my extremely long commutes, so I shifted to dresses (and cardigans and jackets). And there I found my perfect law school outfit.

Dresses are my favorite thing to wear lately because I need not think of mix and matching it. They are easy to wear too as long as the length is appropriate. It is a complete outfit by itself. For school, I prefer wearing a plain bodycon dress or similar types of dresses because they seem to be more formal and put together than other kinds of dresses. They are good on their own or you could put a blazer over it to make it more law school appropriate.

I am glad that there are tons of cheap bodycon dresses online now just like the ones found in this link. Shopping for school clothes has become easy peasy. I just make sure that the fabric is somewhat breathable and the length is not too short. Aside from such precautions, shopping for cheap dresses online is hassle free. Do not forget to check out the rest of dresses, such as my fave white dresses online, from Ericdress here!

Embrace the Outdoors thru Comfortable Camping

The best part about living in a tropical country is that you experience summer all year long, well, except for times when typhoons hit the country. I mean there remains a designated summer season. But I believe every single day is a perfect day to go outdoors and stay under the sun. Seriously, there is so much to do when you are blessed with perfect weather almost every day. You could go to the beach, hike mountains, have barbeque and picnics outdoors, have fun in an inflatable water trampoline on a lake or even a huge pool. The list is practically endless.

And when you have practically good weather all year long, I believe that it should be maximized by enjoying the outdoors. You cannot just waste such weather by staying indoors. One of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors, and my all-time favorite, is to travel. Road trips are definitely my favorite. I like long drives, staying in budget hotels, eating tons of local dishes, and staying by the beach. In my opinion, travelling has recently changed its face with the prevalence of backpacking. Gone are the days of fancy and luxurious travel as everyone, especially the youth, has preferred to embraced nature as it is.

While there are cheap hostels that are extremely affordable and accommodation to backpackers and couch surfing has also become an option, camping is always the best way to go to get in touch with nature up close and personal. Whether it is up in the mountains where you could see stars up close or by the beach where you could hear the waves crash, it is always one humbling way to experience nature. There is nothing like waking up in the morning seeing all these awesome creations right outside your tent. And while camping may be uncomfortable to some, there are new innovations to make camping a relaxing and comfortable activity.

Glamping has become popular lately but nothing beats old school camping. Nothing beats the experience of setting up your own tent, cooking your own food, and enjoying each other’s company while seated by the camp fire you made. Luckily for us, there are now inflatable air sleeping bags that can make your camping experience a whole lot different. These inflatables from buybubblefootball.com source are sturdy as ever and are very affordable. These could last you a number of camping trips in the future. They also come in repair kits for minor issues. To know more about these inflatable air sofas, visit this page for details.

When in Zambales - Capones Island and Camara Island Tour

There are several coves and islands that can be found at Zambales. The more popular ones are also located at San Antonio such as Nagsasa Cove and Anawangin Cove. But whether or not you'll be staying at said coves, a trip to San Antonio, Zambales won't be complete without a tour or even a glimpse of Capones and Camara Islands. These two small islands can actually be seen from Pundaquit Beach. The scenery and sand that these islands offer are unlike the ones found at where we stayed at.

When in Batangas - Taal Volcano Tour

A trip to Talisay won't be complete without a glimpse of Taal Volcano. From our primary school history lessons, this one is said to be the smallest volcano in the world. What amazes me the most is that this popular tourist attraction is actually a volcano within a lake with a lake and an island within its crater And there's no other way to enjoy and experience Taal Volcano than to hike up all the way to its crater. During our visit to Club Balai Isabel, we had the chance to be up close and personal with Taal Volcano.

I think there are several other towns from which you could take a boat ride to Taal Volcano. But since we were staying at Club Balai in Talisay, we had our boat ride from there. There were six of us in the boat plus our boat operator. I think the local government is strict when it comes to safety as they limit the number of people inside the boat and made sure that everyone wears their safety vests. Anyway, it took us around 20 to 30 minutes to reach our destination. The boat ride was extremely smooth. The lake is calm and peaceful especially in the morning.

Natural Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Review

My aloe vera obsession just won't stop! After trying out The Face Shop's Jeju Aloe Soothing Gel, I got myself several tubs of Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel during my recent Althea Korea shopping experience. I actually wanted to try out this one when I first got acquainted with Althea (earlier this year) but I was already eyeing a different kind of day moisturizer on my second haul. Nevertheless, I decided to stick with aloe gels because they've worked out well for me.

Natural Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

As I have previously mentioned, I am not really particular with the brand of the product that I am using and I am open to experimenting and trying out new products when it comes to skincare and makeup. I have always wanted to try out this product because I think this one's Nature Republic's bestseller. And I am curious if it could live up to the hype. Anyway, here are some of the details about this product from Althea Korea's website:

I haven't attended any blogger events during the past few months. Since I am near the finish line, that is, the end of my law school journey, attending blogger events and seeing my friends every now and then were some of the things that I have to give up. But I think my hesitation in attending blogger events was more on fact that I won't be able to deliver right away when it comes to blog posts. When Aldous invited me to the third anniversary of the group that he made - the TeamAldous - which I am proud to be a part of, I just have to say yes. Aldous became one of my friends when we were both starting out (around 3 years ago already!). And he was one of the reasons why I got into food blogging. And besides it was held on a Saturday night. So right after my CivRev quiz, I headed to The Royal Caterer in San Juan to take part in this celebration.
