Acacia Hotel: Instagram-ed!

Howdy guys! :) How's your week so far?

Though it's mid-week (aka crunch time), I'll consider this one of those lucky weeks for me wherein I spent my Wednesday and Thursday savoring an overnight accommodation to feature Acacia Hotel in Alabang. I've seen this fairly new 5 star hotel every time my family goes to ATC from Festival Mall, passing by Commerce Avenue. Who wouldn't notice Acacia Hotel!? Its impressive exterior and grandeur made me so curious of what's to be seen inside, that when Ate Maye Ilagan of When in Manila texted me weeks ago if I want to review Acacia Hotel in Alabang, I didn't bat an eyelash! YES OF COURSE!
I really enjoyed the luxury life of staying in Acacia Hotel with one of my closest friends, whose name is also Ana (!), since originally I planned to schedule this for her birthday salubong. But then I am sure Ana wouldn't mind a belated birthday gift! 
Before I get carried away blog-blabbing again, this is just an intro to my actu…

Had a really awesome experience last Saturday morning, when I visited Elite Studio in A. Venue Makati for the Parisian Bloggers Pictorial Party!

Rode the shuttle they provided from Greenbelt going to the venue, reallyreally convenient for the commuter bloggers! Thank you Parisian for this!

When I got there, these are the Top Ten Awesome-ness that greeted me, and I got to experience! -

1) A table dedicated to each of the bloggers, where our pre-chosen Parisian summer shoes were showcased:

My special corner, they provided three shoe options for me! Very thoughtful, as Ms. Marielle of Parisian said to me: "I know how hard it is to be plus-sized!" Felt the love! Haha!

Every girl needs a pair of Nude Wedges!

I had a special pair of Floral Wedges from the Parisian Plus line!! FLORAL! My heart just stopped, lol.

2) They also provided racks for our clothes! I brought with me several tops and bottoms because I had styling mental block the night before the event, haha. Oh, and I hear…

A Krissyfied Date: Aria Cucina and Coke Concert ng Bayan!

This happened last Friday, the day before the visit to my dentist. I didn't realize this will be my Last Supper, but then I am glad to have a fancy restaurant treat with long-time blogger friend Krissy before the start of my starvation / unplanned "diet" (just because I can't chew my food)!

What we had:

The BEST salad I have tasted so far! May watermelon and nuts and lots of CHEESE! Arugula is the SHIZ! Craving for this now :P

Free bread with yummy oil and vinaigrette dip! :P 

Our drinks! Since libre ni Krissy, I got the Aria Shake, while Krissy said even their Iced Tea super sarap!

Marinara Pasta!

Eto I really really LOVE: Cheese Pizza with Arugula, ayyy to die for!!! Especially pag lagyan nun spicy oil :P

Krissy had this super yummy mousse dessert, while I had kape, of course! :)

Thank you Krissy for the fine dining treat, kahit concert na concert lang outfits natin (we were both wearing flats, tees, and shorts! ;D)--at least I learned that this sosy place originated pa…
