Hey, Candy Girls!

I just got back from a three-week trip to the USA. I missed you guys and wanted to check in with you all to say hi! :)

I’m probably still too jetlagged to string two coherent sentences together, so I’ll just be sharing a few of my favorite snaps from my trip. Obviously, I’m still on a high!

This girl loves her chocolates!

Giant, thousand-year old trees at the Redwoods State Park

Beautiful hiking trails at Saratoga Gap in Santa Clara County

We visited Santa Rosa, hometown of Snoopy’s creator, Charles Schulz.

We marveled at the breathtaking scenery at the Grand Canyon.

Loving the lights and sounds of Vegas!

Natural red-orange rocks at the Valley of Fire in Nevada

Goofing around with my cousin Mariel at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art

Will be posting more pics soon! In the meantime, check out more of my snaps at

Happy Halloween, Candy Girls!

We hope you’re all having a blast today because it’s that time of the year again when you can scare people, have so much fun, and dress up like your favorite characters or icons—Halloween! But please, please remember to be kind and gentle still especially to kids. They’re not big enough to handle anything too scary, like The Exorcist level scary. Also, be generous in giving people treats and candies (especially if it’s Candy‘s November issue with Bella Thorne on the cover, which is out in bookstores nationwide now!) because it’s a time for sharing, too.

Need more tips to survive and have fun today? Here’s a treat: Our beloved spooky characters from Hotel Transylvania 2 are here to give you a few reminders.

Happy Halloween, girls!


Hotel Transylvania is set for release in September 2015.


Class Act

Okay, okay: we know this blog has been looking more like a food blog than a lifestyle/fashion/beauty blog lately. But we can’t help it—the universe just keeps showering us with delicious things! So while we do apologize for the barrage of food posts, here’s another treat for your taste buds, but one that’s entirely different from your usual restaurant or cafe experience: a super informative, super fun wine and cheese class!

French Cheese at Lepicerie

French Wine and Cheese classes (1)

Though we definitely don’t encourage #YOLO binge-drinking (responsible girls are the coolest girls!), a bit of a buzz—with the permission of your parents, of course, and with a designated driver to make sure you get home safely—wouldn’t hurt if it means you get to experience Sofitel Manila’s extremely cool private wine and cheese class. I got a preview of the class last night (Candy Girl Verniece Enciso and I giggled all throughout the wine tastings), and aside from getting my fill of the best wine and cheese selection in the country, I learned so much #impressivestuff that makes for pretty interesting dinner party conversation topics. For example: Did you know that “a good year” for wine is determined by international critics, and differs for every wine-producing country? Did you know that, contrary to the popular belief that only red works, many kinds of white wine can be paired with cheese? And did you know that the dragonfruit wine, fermented locally in Ilocos, is a sweet, refreshing, candy-colored drink that’s actually pretty good?

If you’re up for a unique cultural experience and a gastronomic treat rolled into one, sign up for Sofitel Manila’s private wine and cheese class (it’ll be held at the Spiral Cheese Room—more than enough reason to go!) with your friends, or better yet, with your mom and dad for some major family bonding. Classes will be from October 27-31, and you may call 832-6988 to inquire about fees and reserve a slot.

Happy weekend, everyone!


Off My Bucket List: Kart Racing

Last week, City Kart Racing (CKR) invited us over to try and drive around its 700-meter kart track—complete with straights and technical turns for speed-lovers to enjoy.

city kart racing

Yes, I took a nice photo of the track too. Hehe. Hello, panorama!

And because I’m adventurous (HAHAHAHA!), I had to try it of course. It was nerve-wracking and super fun at the same time. I never felt my heart beat faster since seeing Ansel Elgort on the big screen for the first time in Carrie (sorry, I’m blabbing, haha)! But above all the excitement and the experience, what I’ve come to realize really is that driving isn’t as easy as it looks like. I truly salute everyone who drives for a living and those who do it for fun or because they love it. :thumbsup:

Want to try it yourself? Here are few things you should remember before stepping on that gas pedal and driving to infinity and beyond, Candy Girls.

  1. Walk the track. Get a feel of the place first, so you can prep yourself for the twists and turns when you’re actually racing.
  2. Listen to the briefing well. CKR chairman Jean-Marc Freihuber gave us a few reminders before we got into driving. He gave us a few reminders and encouragements so we’d know what to do once we’re inside the track.
  3. Double check everything. Make sure you’re wearing the proper footwear, racing suit, and helmet—not too tight and not too loose.
  4. Pray for safety. There’s no way you can hurt yourself, but a short word asking Him to protect you from anything and everything (especially those nerves that will start kicking in once you’re sitting in the driver’s seat) won’t hurt either. #JesusTakeTheWheel
  5. Just enjoy the ride. As cliche as it may sound, that’s the most important thing you should etch in your head and heart. Put on Tris’s dauntless spirit and you’re set to make your way to the finish line. Don’t forget to step on the brakes and slow down a little to live in the moment because CKR’s track is larger than life. Okay, I may be exaggerating, but it’s the only track I’ve been in so I won’t really know. Haha! :P

What are you waiting for, Candy Girls? Bring your family and friends over to CKR now. It’s located at Circuit Makati in Barangay Carmona, Makati City. Remember to call them first at 09174551060 because reservation is a must. CKR is open from Monday to Thursday, 3PM to 11PM, and from Friday to Sunday, 10AM-12MN.

And if you’re feeling a bit profesh about this, why don’t you try your hand at CKR’s first major project for the year—the Race to Boracay, wherein you can mingle with your fellow speed enthusiasts and get all competitive? This race is open for juniors (13-17 years old) and adults (18 years old and above). For more information, you may log on to




1. A fluffy puppy’s adorable waddle run—especially when he’s welcoming you home after a long day
2. Friends who won’t always take your side, but will always be BY your side
3. Overhearing your mom or dad telling someone how proud they are of you
4. Chancing upon the last available stock of the perfect pair of shoes in your size
5. Finding crumpled notes in the bottom of your oversized bag, or finding notes, period
6. Waking up in time for a good workout, a healthy, delicious breakfast, a cute outfit, and great hair
7. Realizing that it’s almost the end of the year, then looking back and knowing it’s shaped up to be a wonderful one so far

What’s on YOUR list of life’s sweet things? :-)


*Although we won’t say no to cupcakes, either. This one’s from Twelve Cupcakes!
