Fly free and happy beyond birthdays and across forever

wearing a Twinkle Ferraren beaded bikini, vintage babydoll dress

Turning 26 last Saturday was a hoot. We started with drinks the night before.. lots of drinks.. and on the day of we headed out to a secret spot for a little picnic. Everyone brought something to contribute to the already large amount of food and drinks, and as soon as we were done setting up, we just sat and ate and talked and laughed. It was exactly as I had hoped it would be. The sunset was breathtaking and by sunset we were rolling around hysterically laughing and playing silly drinking games in the dark. I could not have planned it better, it was absolutely perfect and everything I wanted.

Thank you to those who made it happen, especially my partners in crime, Paula and Matet.. and our respective partners. You rock my socks.

  • I received an email from, which is Paris Vogue's online equivalent, and was asked to answer some questions for a possible inclusion in one of their articles. I mean, Paris Vogue! That made my day like you cant even imagine.
  • I have spent quite a bit of time at my friend's spa, you have to check it out if you are here for the summer, I just had the best facial I have ever had there, and they managed to make my feet look umm, normal again. That is never an easy task. Go check out Body & Sole on the Boracay Main Road, across the street from Allied Bank.
  • In an effort to take advantage of the last wind before summer truly hits, I have spent more time in the water kiteboarding. I have had some bad crashes, but they were nothing compared to what happened to me yesterday.. I crashed my bike. Now I have a banged up and bruised knee and my elbow isn't looking too happy either. This now means I have to stay out of the water for a while, which suits me just fine, because I can barely even get out of bed.
  • Mars leaves for Egypt in May and we are moving shortly before that so there are heaps of things to prepare for.. I'm stressed and excited at the same time, and also really sad about me not seeing him for 4 months..
I will hopefully resume my blogging duties again soon, but for now here are the photos from my 26th♥; "Trust me Its Paradise" clearly still applies..

Big kiss! ♥
