From A to Z Tips of Good Grooming

Always aim at being as presentable as you can make yourself. And then it will never matter whom you meet.

Backview is so often neglected. But it is almost as important as the front view. Check with two mirrors, so you can see how your hair-do looks at the back. A wardrobe mirror plus hand-mirror will help you check for posture faults, too.

Cleansing is important to a fresh, glowing skin. Remember that the most expensive makeup in the world will do nothing for skin that has a tired, dingy look because pores are clogged with the residue of stale cosmetics.

Dandruff is synonymous to dry scalp. Treat this with conditioners and use a shampoo especially for dry hair. Don’t keep your hair dryer on high “too” long.

Eyebrows count more than you think in the general impression of your looks. If they’re irregular, maintain them with gentle plucking from underneath only. If necessary, define them with eyebrow cream in a suitable color. Eyebrows look best when they match the hair, or are just a shade or two darker.

Feet should be as smooth-skinned and as blemish-free as possible. Use hand cream or foot balm on dry skin under soles and, of course, wash feet everyday, then dust them with talc.

Gloss is vital to hair and lips. Conditioners will help to put a gloss on dull hair and lip gloss will give a nice shine to a pretty mouth. 

Handbag is absolutely necessary for a well-groomed look. A stylish woman will always have a handbag. Caps of tubes and bottles should be carefully replaced so they do not leak. And, once a week, turn out the contents of your bag so that lipstick and powder marks can be sponged off the lining.

Illusion is worth trying. An astonishing number of quite ordinary looking women can give an illusion of striking good looks merely by being exceptionally well-groomed.

Jawline is often the part of the face that is forgotten when foundation is applied. Always carry it right underneath, blending into the throat, and make sure there is no color contrast between the throat and face.

Knowledge is essential to attain good looks. Every woman with a claim to being well-groomed knows what suits her, so her assurance is never shaken by wearing a wildly unsuitable hairstyle or makeup.

Lasting morning makeup is important. Cleverly applied, it should stay put for the rest of the day, except for renewal of lipstick and fluffing-on of loose powder.

Magnifying Mirrors are every woman’s best friend when it comes to good grooming. It is indispensable for painting the prettiest possible portrait with makeup. Show up, too, any tiny flaws which might need attention!

Nails should be kept clean with a nail-brush and in good shape with an emery-board. Ideally, nails should be grown to at least one-eighth of an inch beyond the finger tips, to do their job of protecting the nail-bed.

Organized – that is a well-groomed woman has to be. It takes time to be well-groomed but it’s possible to be so organized that it doesn’t take too much time. For instance, keep the cosmetics you’ll need in the morning all together. Buy a new supply of your favorite shampoo or night cream before you’ve used up the last speck.

Perfectionists score highly every time. It really pays to care for details, like matching your lips to your nails, wearing eye shadow the color of your dress, shampooing hair before it looks though it needs it.

Quandary is something which a well-groomed woman is, rarely in when an unexpected invitation comes along. She knows how to give her hair a quick dry-set if necessary (roller, hair-spray and ten minutes with the hair dryer), how to freshen up with a face mask and take away tired look (shiny eye shadow, not too deep in color, and a touch of blusher high on the cheekbones underneath the eyes plus the merest suspicion of it on forehead, too.

Rules are followed by well-groomed women delightedly. She knows the beauty rules of sensible eating, sufficient sleep, and the skin care routine (cleanse, tone and moisturize) to nourish the skin. And she keeps them faithfully.

 Scent is absolutely necessary to enhance an individual style. Well-groomed women takes trouble to discover which type of scent expresses her personality and makes her feel happy. She’ll start the day with a cologne version and carry a handbag size phial of the concentrated perfume.

Tissues are indispensable to the woman who cares about her appearance and is fastidious. She uses them for wiping off cleaning milk, when she’s painting her nails, for removing lipstick smudges.

Unruffled – is something that describes a woman with an impeccable sense of style. She always manages to create an image of serenity, however bet-up she really is.

Variety – is necessary for a stylish woman. She knows the value of how to achieve different hairstyles. And she likes to try new cosmetics occasionally.
Wisdom is essential for a stylish woman to shine in a crowd. She won’t do her face a certain way merely because it looks good on someone else, nor just because it happens to be fashionable. She will adapt a “current” look so that it suits her.

X is for the mysterious quality which a well-groomed woman adds to become a charmer. It is a compound of being a woman, grace, and adds interest in other people.

Youth is the ideal time to acquire the self discipline which is so essential for looks that last. But you can start at any stage.

Zeal is vital to any project and good grooming is no exception. The beauty drill may seem tiresome and a bore but it’s always well worthwhile.

Where The Heart Is, There Is Music Too

It's obviously redundant, but I still believe that every time our hearts are broken into pieces there's always music in the road to healing.

If you're grieving because of a lost relative, or remembering the sudden death of a friend, it's not easy to go by the odds of time, but with soulful music - there's hope.

Or if you lost a loved one, a wayward lover, maybe, it's still inspiring to hear a well-written piece of music. No wonder many people love different kinds of musical instruments such as piano, guitar, violin, cello, flute and more.

I've seen people window shopping in music centers and record bars, including visiting online resources such as guitarscenter or other sites that have promos of amazing musical instruments. It's not surprising that more and more people rely on music to seek acceptance and place in their circle of friends. Others became instantly famous because of it.

But what about those who are terribly heartbroken?

Thank you, Laura. You had shared a piece that's so inspiring. :)

I'm thinking about a beautiful song that I really like - It's Not Goodbye by Laura Pausini - and it makes me cry. In the same day last year, someone died, and she's part of the clan. And yes, this song is perfect for lovers, too. 

Why is it that there's always goodbye? Disagreements occur in a relationship. Many friends fall apart as time goes by. And let me say this by experience: only ardent lovers can bravely say that it's not goodbye. 

What do you think? Can you relate with me in that situation?

Laura Pausini - It's Not Goodbye
There's always magic in being humble and forgiving because relationships are not permanent - unless you believe in eternity so faithfully. If you want to think about it so clearly, listen to music that promotes hope, faith and humility. 

I just did.

Ann Ward and her Success in Modelling

The immense popularity of Ann Ward started when she emerged as winner of the Cycle 15 of America’s Next Top Model 2010, a CW Network reality television show. Even though she was perceived as shy and unassuming, the 6 ft. 2 inches tall beauty took a grasp of the admiring supporters from around the world.

Known for her soulful facial expression, thin waist and long legs, Ann Ward has captured the attention of the fashion loving packs from across the globe. The 23-year-old model continues to draw attention to her endearing personality, unique modelling profile and her genuine love of fashion.

In 2011, she received a seven-page spread in Vogue Italia, a feat that other models rarely achieve in the industry. Usually, models are given a two-page space in the magazine.

The avid fans of the newcomer shared their excitement as she became the cover of ENE Magazine in 2013. In the same year, Ann sashayed in the runway for the fashion show dubbed as Desfile Google+PV14 and donned Pineda Cavalin’s 2014 collection.

Six Tips on Proper Hair Care

The basic adage of having a beautiful hair continues to haunt many people nowadays. For women, it has to be downright useful as they usually have longer tresses that need more time to manage. Since men struggles to maintain healthy looking hair, every effort counts. Luckily, we have gathered some tips on proper hair care.

1. Have a regular hair massage

These days, hair massage is highly recommended to stimulate hair growth. However, if you are losing hair, see a physician for possible medical help. Avoid self-styled “specialists” though; especially those who offer so-called wonder tonics or cures.

Many people believe that five minutes massage in the morning and another five minutes massage in the evening reduce hair thinning. Aside from that, it stimulates the hair follicles. 

As a way to relax, try kneading and rubbing your scalp now!

2. Daily hair brushing is essential

Let’s get this straight: twelve to 15 strokes daily is usually sufficient. We think that too much hair brushing may prove injurious, especially with brushes that pull the hair or scratch the scalp.

By the way, use the right product to avoid damage to your hair. If you have short, fine tresses, use a thinner brush.

3. Use hair sprays properly

Avoid excessive use of hair sprays. It may harm your tresses. If applied properly, it will help you in maintaining your hair to achieve a gorgeous and eye-catching style. Be sure to have regular shampoo applied on your hair to avoid dry-looking hair.

4. Wigs

Do you wear wigs? Don’t forget to have regular shampooing because it can increase scalp perspiration that may eventually damage your hair. After all, normal wig wearing is not injurious to the hair provided the wig is not too tight.

5. Cutting

Although trimming may beautify hair by removing damaged or split ends, cutting does not promote faster growth. Hair grows at the same rate regardless and the rate is largely a matter of heredity.

The Fashion Spot wrote seven compelling reasons to cut your hair short. Those who have round faces can benefit in a short hair cut.

6. Braiding

Tight or frequent braiding may pull at the hair roots and cause damage. Hair should not be left braided overnight, and rubber bands or tight clips should be avoided.

Even if we receive warnings about braiding, let's think positive. As long as we do it right, everything will be alright. Have you heard about the fishtail braid? It's exceptionally fabulous! So perfect for a Boho princess look.

Which of these tips that you really like? Let’s talk about it in the comments section.

Kim Kardashian and her All White Ensembles

Kim Kardashian is one of the most fashionable ladies in the world of style and beauty. The fashion world is her world, I must say. We take inspiration on her endearing sense of style and enviable personality. As a successful fashion maven, we know we can get something out of her persistent spirit.

We are so lucky since Kim has shown two gorgeous all white ensembles this year. Both outfits are incredibly fabulous and suits well for the popular TV personality, entrepreneur and wife of Kanye West.

We remember her gorgeous and elegant take of an all white attire two months ago at the MailOnline yacht party in Cannes, France. In the event, she donned a form-fitting, sleeveless dress in all white that emphasized her shapely physique. The shimmering outfit matched with her elegant accessories, especially her chic makeup and hairstyle.

Earlier today, she showed off an ethereal look by wearing an all white ensemble as she arrived at a studio in Hollywood on Wednesday, before enjoying a romantic dinner with husband Kanye West. The attire is heavenly, but it was highlighted by a plunging neckline for added style and flamboyance. To eliminate monotony, the outfit featured a cut-out on the back and sides. She finished it off by wearing a pair of gold chain-link stilettos and smokey eyes makeup.

Do you like Kim's all white ensembles? Which one do you prefer? I like the first one because it's so elegant. She preferred sleek hairstyle and trendy makeup and it matched with her stylish frock.

The Soul of Music: Being in a Musical Group

The soul of music is music itself.

When I was a kid, my Aunt told me that I have a very bad singing voice. I felt bad because I love music. So I patiently trained my voice to achieve an acceptable status - that at least I can sing out loud while taking a shower.

Later on, I accepted the fact that I can't sing well. So I focused on my speaking voice. If it's not my singing voice, at least I have an audible, sweet voice that many aspiring disc jockeys want to project on air. I immersed myself in that industry. I observed disc jockeys, especially american dj lighting and spiels, through YouTube videos, including watching them in action in events. Later on, I got a chance to apply as a DJ by invitation, but was eventually rejected. At least, I tried.

Now that I'm completely free from the discouraging words by others, I kept on loving music in any way possible. I'm a total go-and-get-it girl and my attitude is so different because I do persist on things.

Karen (hands clasped), Aisie, Irish, Bella and Sarah

Then, I participated in musical group presentations for a change. I can't sing alone because I'm too shy. But at least, I can sing with others by participating in a choral group.

Last year, we had an awesome rendition of I Stand All Amazed and this year, we performed All is Well with aplomb. We had stylish uniforms too.

It was a fun experience and I'll never forget it.

MTV Video Music Awards 2014: Taylor Swift Leads the Fashion Pack down the Red Carpet

This time of the year is a stellar fashion phenomenon at the MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles. Many well-known performers stormed the red carpet with aplomb, especially Taylor Swift, who kept it sleek and pretty.

The famed singer donned a high-cut playsuit, which she teamed with a pair of chic sky-high heels. She finished off the look with a simple hairstyle and a slash of red lipstick.

Aside from Taylor, Jennifer Lopez also showed off an impressive ensemble down the red carpet. She wore a a silver-tinted gown that has a lovely crisscrossing bodice that showed off her flat tummy and a thigh-baring slit in the trailing skirt. Jennifer's shoes matched well with her frock too. 

Although Kim Kardashian chose a racy outfit, she stole the show with her shapely figure and trendy makeup. On the other hand, Miley Cyrus paraded her impeccable style this year by wearing a black high-waisted pair of leather trousers, which she teamed with crop top and matching footwear.

Orange Theme Fall Wedding Inspiration

Hi everyone! There’s a convincing call to freshen ourselves now that fall has ushered us into the day. Even though it’s still summer in other parts of the world, we’re not going to slacken our love of astounding colors

Think about the lively touch of orange!

The feel of orange this fall is incredibly popular, especially for a budget savvy bride-to-be who want an elegant wedding celebration. It’s a refreshing way to start a new life. 

So embrace the energy of this color this season. Who wouldn't want to enjoy vibrant colors now?

Think outside the box. Where did they get those flickering ideas to put up a well-planned wedding this fall? Did you collect wedding magazines before, preferably back issues sold in lower prices? It doesn’t hurt to do some research before planning an orange-themed nuptial.

Tom Cruise is Busy Filming Mission Impossible 5 at Vienna State Opera House in Austria

Tom Cruise - one of my favorite Hollywood stars - is still in the height of his acting career even until now. We loved him in his Top Gun days and liked his other popular movies such as The Last Samurai, Eyes Wide Shut, Jerry Maguire and more.

But we are bound to love him more, especially if you're an avid fan, because he's currently filming Mission Impossible 5 in Vienna, Austria. Of course, many followers of his famed character Ethan Hunt are expecting more stunts in the latest movie.

The former installments of the Mission Impossible film are action-packed and filmed in popular places around the world. At present, the action star is busy filming at the Vienna State Opera house in Austria.

In one photo, Tom was seen chatting with Swedish actress, Rebecca Ferguson, her co-star, while in the process of shooting some scenes.

For one particular film, Tom Cruise wore a fitting blue t-shirt and navy jeans. He teamed it with a pair of brown shoes and sunglasses.

Splash Mountain in Laguna

I’m a certified traveller. I kept on visiting new places with my husband. It’s a way for me to thank nature for such wonder that every traveller held in view – just like the magnificent Laguna de Bay.

We visited Splash Mountain twice. On our first visit, we experienced sleeping in one of their rooms. The two-storey building has spacious rooms for the guests. We slept there for a night. We transferred to another room the next day. It’s located near the Laguna de Bay so we experienced natural cool air.

The swimming pools are well-designed and located at the center of the resort. It’s just a small place so you can practically see everything the resort has to offer. The food is delicious too.

 The hotel staff is very organized in performing their tasks. On our last day in the hotel, we requested for another room and they allowed us to transfer for the third time. I had a bad dream in one of their rooms and my husband felt different too. Luckily, there are only few guests at that time. We found another room for the night.

There are awesome places to visit if you’re in the mood for roaming around the city. We decided to visit UP Los Banos grounds, the Robinsons Mall and the supermarket. At that time, using cellophanes are no longer allowed in the area. It’s a good thing we brought small bags.

Enjoying Villa Pilar in Dapitan City

We had an activity for the youth organized by the church last April 16-18, 2014 held in Dapitan City. The venue of the activities is Villa Pilar – nestled just along the boulevard – with the sea breeze ready to welcome you.

There are many inns and resorts in Dapitan City, ranging from budget hotels to expensive places. Perhaps, the organizers chose Villa Pilar because of its huge training grounds and accessibility.

In front of the hotel, the seashore is visible. Our rooms are situated in another inn; we experienced hiking from one hotel to another. Our visitors from Oroquieta City were housed in Villa Pilar, that’s why.

The things that I love about the place are the well-manicured gardens, spacious lobby and the shades of trees. The flowers were in full bloom at that time so I enjoyed the garden area.

 Have you visited Villa Pilar lately? What can you say about the place? Tell us in the comments section.

AFP Museum at Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City

Are you in for another throwback treat for today? I would like to share my experience in visiting the AFP Museum at Camp General Emilio Aguinaldo in Quezon City many years ago. We visited the place to attend the Jubilee Kick-off Fireside last January 3, 2009.

We all know that fashion and beauty is very womanly and it’s something that I really love. But I also like things that boyish girls like – war movies, wrestling and other similar things – and it isn’t weird for me. I grew up watching my uncles’ on duty mode or to report to their work in the army. So when I had a chance to take a peek at the Armed Forces of the Philippines Museum, it was indeed a memorable experience.

The display of war machines and supplies proved to be endearing. For one thing, some of the displays were used in the war era. It was a historical preview while I’m thinking about the war movies that I really like, including Rambo films.

Personally, I’ve seen a war airliner. It’s a huge air carrier in shades of camouflage for the use of soldiers that protect our country. 

I’ve seen the machine guns too. There are different kinds of heavy looking weapons but I got a chance to have a photo for the huge rifle near the entrance of the museum.

What can you say about the museum? Let’s share interests. Leave comments in the section below.

My Life in Imus City

One of the most important decisions in my life is to move early in Imus on August 10, 2010. It was a tiresome day because we need to bring all of our things for the trip. At that time, Cavite province is progressive in terms of industrialization and economy.

On February 28, 2012, I left the place for a new beginning. My husband and I decided to move again to another place.

I left with a commitment that I’ll take my chances to improve our lives – just like the bustling community of The Istana subdivision. At that time, Imus is already a city of Cavite province.

Did I like what I experienced in Imus City? Yes. It was a roller-coaster-ride kind of living but I love it.

 Here are the main reasons why I liked my lifestyle in the newly-constituted city.

I had a chance to see the beauty of nature. Tagaytay City is just a few minutes ride from our place so it was easy to visit the tourist spot.

I had a wonderful lifestyle. I learned to eat bangus and tilapia during meals, and later on, I fell in love with it. For me, such lifestyle is new. I was raised in a small town with other kinds of fishes for food so just understand me. 

I had witnessed magnificent productions for television and the movies. Cavite is one of the popular places for such events. Remember the first few shooting days of Ina, Kapatid, Anak Book 2 held in Anabu Kostal Public Market? It was so memorable.

I’ve tasted delectable cuisine in Imus City, Cavite. I met the president of Leentech Network System and introduced me to the owners and managers of Town’s Delight restaurant, Cavite Republic, Juan Carlo The Caterer, Mount Sea Resort and Watercamp Resort in Cavite and other fine dining and resorts. As a result, I’ve tried their menu for my blogging journey. It was awesome! I’m so grateful for every bit of experience that I had at that time.

I gained new friends. Through the church organization, I met new people and visited new places. Through them, I learned many things.

 I visited many newly-developed subdivisions. When we arrived in Cavite, rent to own houses are already very popular. It was inspiring!

Imus City is a historical place. So I discovered amazing places that are things of the past and part of the historical heritage of the place. There are malls and supermarkets built around and within the area. Many satellite offices of government offices are installed in malls. It’s so convenient for all of us.

Product Review on Parisian Basic Heels

The best way to enhance one’s style is to follow the cycles of fashion. It’s necessary to adapt to changes. For years, my style evolves from simple to urbane mode. Before I started writing about fashion, anything goes for me. I didn’t have a list of style themes to follow. When I started my fashion site, I became acquainted with style ideas. From there, I updated my look.

When it comes to choices of footwear, I do it by color, design and price. I’m a budget savvy fashion enthusiast so there’s no doubt I’ll choose to shop in thrift stores most of the time. But I also choose branded items once in a while.

One of my favorite shoe line is Parisian by SM. I started with their basic line of shoes – the simple heels with comfortable design.

I bought Parisian Basic purple and brown heels two years ago. Let me share with you my thoughts about it.

1. It goes with any outfit that has shades of violet.

I wore the pair of heels during a fashion show organized by a local government unit for the celebration of the Family Week last year. It was very useful. One of the models borrowed it for ease of walking in the runway.

2. It is very functional.

Until now, I’m still using the product. It doesn’t easily wear out. The pair of heels is notably durable and sturdy. For two years, it’s still one of my favorite pairs of heeled shoes.

3. The heels are not too high. It’s just perfect for me.

I rarely wear towering heels. No wonder I like my pair of Parisian Basic because the height of the heels is perfect for me.

4. It is very comfy and well-designed.

If you step on the shoes, you’ll have a secured feeling. It’s made of sturdy yet soft materials.

5. Parisian Basic by SM footwear is stylish.

The colors have contrasting effect – brown and purple – so it’s very fashionable. It goes well with my skin tone stockings, too.

If I’m going to buy more sophisticated shoes from SM, I’m sure I’ll like it. The simple ones are already notable. Soon, I’ll buy edgy heels from their new line of shoe designs.

Elle Fanning Looks Adorable in a Scarlet Silk Bandeau Dress

We know that Elle Fanning is a successful Hollywood actress. However, she also embraced a regular teenage life. Recently, she ditched her regular teenage outfit by showcasing a high fashion look for a recent event.

The 16-year-old actress donned a red silk bandeau dress at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Installation Dinner at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in California.

The lovely actress’s frock has a chic pattern with glossy finish. It has a bouffant style and looked like a specially created gift wrap.

Elle emphasized her style by wearing a pair of rose gold shimmering stilettos and a sparkly bracelet. She chose a simple hairstyle and a light makeup. To highlight her simple makeup, she included a splash of red lipstick.

The art of showing organic style is also getting better this time that stylists and fashion designers tend to choose environment-friendly materials. Many individuals love natural resources like cotton and silk for their wardrobe. Of course, that depends on the whether of the country or region that they belong.

However, the essence of organic trend sounds intriguing. A lot of insiders talk about this topic very often that it takes less than a day to find information about it. After all, we need non-toxic materials for clothing design. Remember, limiting the use of harmful chemicals preserves the health of the environment and of humans too. Going back to an earlier claim, there’s an evident maneuver of elements like responsibility and integrity relating to the industry. There should be a balance between creativity and sustainability to attain human preservation and beauty.

Not only that. The art of relaying fashion trends must come with ethical fashion. That is, there should be great respect for people, their communities, and the environment. In that sense, we tend to beautify the world and not slowly killing nature. We do it in a sense of balance and responsibility. The supplies used in making dresses must be environmentally-friendly to avoid damaging mother earth. There should be a constant effort to maintain respect for all things, especially to all individuals.

Lastly, following ethical fashion starts from an individual. It doesn’t hurt to support organizations that are working on that issue. Besides, it’s always welcome to purchase products that reflect the said values by means of having the right materials in it. 

Allure of Nature: Trip to Sungkilaw Falls

Every travel opportunity is a blessing for me. I always take chances in helping different organizations to visit far away places for community projects. So when our church organization organized a feeding program last April 12, 2014 at Sungkilaw Falls in Diwan, Dipolog City, I readily accepted the invitation. And it was all worth it.

It wasn't easy to reach the place. We traveled for about 25 kilometers from the city proper. Sungkilaw Falls is located in Sitio Virginia, Barangay Diwan, the farthest barangay of the city of Dipolog. The road going to the falls isn't fully developed so we had a bumpy ride. Luckily, the organizers hired an appropriate vehicle from a reliable rent a car Philippines establishment for the excursion.

Before lunch, we had a photo opportunity. Here's what I got.

For one whole day, we explored the place. Obviously, the participants enjoyed it because no one backed out even if the trip is rough. Our lunch is also delectable. We enjoyed our packed lunch of rice, vegetables, grilled chicken and soft drinks. It’s very tiresome to pass on the steps down the lane to reach the falls. However, I enjoyed every step of the way because I knew I can marvel another part of nature that’s remarkably beautiful.

After our visit of the stunning natural body of water, we headed to Linay for the feeding program. It’s another bouncy ride uphill. When we reached the place, many people are already gathered in the hall. We distributed bread and drinks to the inhabitants of the area. They also received packed goods full of rice, noodles, milk and medicine from one of the sponsors of the activity, the Red Cross.

So magnificent!

Our way home is memorable. Although the trip isn't blissful, it’s still heaven to know that many people benefited from the activity, plus I had a chance to visit a magnificent beauty of nature. 

By the way, you can read more about the place by visiting Dipolog City Philippines website.

Have you been to Sungkilaw Falls? Let me know in the comments section. We’ll share our experiences.

Tips on How to Make Your Trips More Comfortable

The best way to enjoy a trip is to prepare for it. It’s easy to reach a certain destination if you’re aware of the golden tips that will make your trips more delightful. Since we want you to enjoy your ride, we would like to share these tips with you.

1. Sit near the window to have an abundant supply of air.

Obviously, this is essential for those who want fresh air while travelling. We know that motion sickness is common during long distance trips, so it’s important to prepare for it.

2. Choose a reputable bus rental company if you travel by group.

Don’t take chances when you travel long distance and by group. The ultimate way to do it properly is to hire an air-conditioned bus with complete facilities and amenities. These days, many bus rentals Philippines companies offer buses for rent with on-board video and stereo, microphone, overhead luggage rack and even Internet connection.

3. Prepare necessary items for long hours of travel.

We know that visiting far away places is one of the most exciting parts of travelling with your family and friends. Prepare for it. Mothers should be ready with enough provisions for snacks for the children. There should be enough safe drinking water, extra clothes and medicine.

4. Don’t forget to bring first aid kit.

In case of accidents, prepare a first aid kit. It is useful to cure minor cuts and wounds sustained while travelling.

5. Bring lotions and ointments during travel.

It is important to bring lotions and ointments while on the road. In some cases, sunburn and insect bites happen during road trips. Don’t forget to watch out for allergic reactions to the said skin products.

Lastly, avoid too much sun exposure. Obviously, severe contact with direct sunlight may cause heatstroke, sunburn and heat exhaustion.
