How to Save Up for Your First Out of Town Trip with Babe
Traveling with your babe for the first time isn't only stressful (hello, ever tried looking for the perfect date and the perfect place?), it can also get expensive especially if you're still depending on your parents for allowance. But if you think it's impossible, it's not at all, Candy Girls.
You can actually save up for your very first out of town trip with babe. You just have to commit to it together. Here are five ways you can save up for that, girl. Time to take down notes!
- Cook for each other instead of going out.
Since eating out can get really pricey most of the time, if you're still saving up for your travel funds, we suggest you try cooking for each other instead. It's cheaper to go and buy the ingredients from the market yourself and spend time in the kitchen cooking for the love of your life. Plus, the effort will surely make your hearts swell with joy.
- Marathon movies and TV series at home instead of going to the cinema.
Cinema tickets are quite expensive, so while you're still trying to save, we suggest you ask your boyfriend to come over and watch your favorite movies and TV series at home with you instead. You can also have some time to bond with each other's families and talk to each other even while the movie's playing. And ICYDK, movie nights are great for your relationship—there's even a study that proves that!
- Try junk food hacks at home if you want to eat comfort food instead of grabbing some fast food takeout.
If you're feeling a bit bored and you're both having a bad day—sooo bad that you just can't lift another finger anymore—why don't you try a few junk food hacks together? We actually have a few over here! You can both have fun, try new things, and de-stress together.
- Explore museums if you're itching to go out.
There are a ton of museums and libraries in the country that don't have entrance fees—start with the National Museum, Candy Girls. Not only will you learn a lot of things together, you'll also get to go out without spending a lot of money.
- Treat yourselves once in a while if you really need it.
Just because you're saving up doesn't mean that you can't have fun anymore. When you're both getting tired of doing the same things over and over again, treat yourselves to a fancy dinner out. But always remember not to touch your savings, okay? Live and go on a date that's within your budget.

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
