I have been dying to go to the beach and spend a day or two on an island ever since that short but sweet road trip we had last February. In fact i have been buying (secretly....behind the husband's back tehehe) some cute summer dresses and high waist bikinis for that dream vacation. It's hard to get a leave off from work these days especially now that most of my leave balances have been consumed from me being sick most of the time during my first trimester. So the anticipation to finally get that 4-day holiday break is just so overwhelming that I'm going to be really disappointed if it wouldn't push through. 
But you know in life, or in marriage specifically, we don't always get what we want. The husband decided to just spend our holidays in his parent's house because a) Camotes meant a lot of motorbike-riding which my OB advised me to avoid b) he hasn't been home for almost three months. I wanted to argue and prove my case but this time he has a point so I obliged. I am not good at compromising I tell you because I have a way of turning things around to my advantage but for the benefit of our baby I will just have to say goodbye to that trip for now. But the bargaining did not end there coz I managed to    coerce him to take me to lunch somewhere near the beach. hahaha

These photos were taken last February, not the official start of summer yet, but the heat and the blue skies signaled that my favorite time of the year has come earlier. 
We were scouting for locations in Cebu South for an editorial shoot we will be doing this month for a top wedding blog. Will post photos of the official shoot once the feature is up on their website. It will showcase collaborative work of my husband photographer, Marlon Capuyan, stylist Cuckoo Cloud Concepts ( headed by Ms. Vanilla Ice Cream herself, Gizelle), and some of the best talents from the Cebu wedding scene. So please do watch out for that. :)

I know I'm not big on blogging about my personal life although sometimes I tackle about personal stuff but only on the surface. Not really the type that digs deep on the matter. I only write longer entires when I'm frustrated or angry about something but you may have noticed they do not see the light of internet day because I delete them once I'm done writing them. 

But this, I am comfortable to share. It would be a shame if I didn't. Because sooner or later, you will  see more of me in a much fuller figure. Yes, I am currently expecting our first baby. And you bet I am gonna rock this moment in my life every single day that I can. So expect pregnancy posts (still fashion posts, of course) on the days to come. I hope I will not bore you. haha 

P.S. I am eight weeks along in the photos. :)
