Philippines 2014 / 2015

Hello beautiessss 

Yes I know . . . I've been gone for forever! I have missed blogging so much. I have been in the Philippines for the holidays and as soon as I got back to Canada, I started my winter semester at school so I was just non-stop on the go. Also, not to mention the fact that I have been jet lagged so my sleeping schedule has been off. 

Anyways, my family and I went home to the Philippines to spend Christmas and New Years with our very big and loving family over there. I had the best time and it was so refreshing to end the year and start the new year with my amazing family that I have not seen in a long time. Here is a recap of my vacation:

I met my cousins' babies for the first time and it was love at first sight for me. They are adorable and I am feeling so blessed that my family is growing even bigger. 

This is one of the first nights out that some of my cousins (those who are legal) and I went out to a bar and bonded. 

This was a beautiful and massive Christmas tree at the mall in the Philippines. 

With baby Joaquim! I love and miss him so much. He is such a handsome little guy.

Bonifacio High Street was beautiful! 

You can't go to the Philippines without drinking Buko juice which is a fresh coconut juice. 

Philippines is very much known for celebrating New Years Eve with incredible fireworks. Here is a picture of myself with my cousins while we held sparklers in our hands.

This is the gorgeous Coffee Farmhouse that we stayed at in Tagaytay for two nights and three days. This place had the most amazing scenery! 

Here is Coffee Farmhouse at night with our bonfire. 

Here is a picture where I am with all of my cousins from oldest to youngest and our Lola (grandma). 

While at Coffee Farmhouse my cousins and I decided to play a few olympic games such as badminton, volleyball, basketball, etc. We got t-shirts customized by color with our number from oldest to youngest and our names on the back. 

I was on Team Blue but we sadly lost and came last place :( but it was so much fun nonetheless. 

Surprise! Yes I got a tattoo. As you can see from the picture below, I got matching tattoos with two of my other cousins :) this is my first tattoo and it means a lot to me because it instantly reminds me of the amazing bond we have.  

I hope you enjoyed looking at these pictures from my vacation! I have three big goals this year of 2015 and they are: 1) to graduate which I will be in November (yay!!!) 2) to get my own place 3) to post more frequently on this blog. 

Now that I have publicly stated my goals, you guys can all keep me accountable haha :)

Thanks for reading & I hope you enjoyed!
