When it comes to going back to school... you've got to admit it, you either hate it or love it! SweetEscape is here to help our fellow Escapists–whether it is you or your kids who are about to start a new school year–to get up and motivated for school!
That's right, one of the main keys to feeling good is to look good! There's actually a lot of benefits that you can reap from a new or upgraded wardrobe. As many of us know, humans get bored easily, and maybe those worn out clothes of yours are the cause of the no-excitement-whatsoever feeling that you have. So do yourself a big favor and go to your favorite mall for some shopping-spree fun! Make a list of all the things you need and needs replacement.
A fun tip, google "school closet staples" for a complete list of the things you need to be ready for school. While you're at it, give your closet a little makeover and do some Marie Kondo intervention to it. That way, it'll be so much more convenient for you to pick out your outfit for school in the mornings.
Holidays are bittersweet, we love it because we have all that freedom... But it's bitter because it's usually over in just a flash. Therefore, our tip for you is to make the most out of your holidays is to really make use of that short time!
Whether it be traveling, taking a pottery class, or perhaps trying out instruments that you've never played before... this is the time to do it. This way, you won't feel so bummed when school commences, because you know you've had a ball during that break.
Another tip that helps (believe it or not) is to to get yourself some new stationery for your new classes - and yes, all of that good stuff; pens, pencils, books, binders and everything to your liking. Not to get too deep in it, but it's even psychologically proven that school stationery can actually help motivate you in school.
Once you get your school stationery organized, we assure you you'll be more than ready to go and conquer the new school year.
Create a new playlist, and listen to all your favorite songs that are potential candidates to be put in that playlist. Specifically, add those songs that can turn any of your days downside up. Once you have that all set, you're more than ready to take over a new school year with some great motivating tunes!
Music playlists are unique to every individual, and it's one of the things that make you... you! Go all out with the music in your playlist, and be sure to play those tunes daily before school.
What is school without your bestfriends and buddies? Let's be honest... without our friends, we would feel some sort of emptiness lingering within us. But a big special thanks to our friends, school seems to be a tad bit better and more bearable to go through! With that said, could you think of an even better idea than to gather your closest friends for a little get-together before the new school term?
Host a little barbeque at your house, or if possible and financially able, book a room or villa with Airbnb with your besties for a day or two and have a sleepover. Otherwise, opt for a mini roadtrip somewhere together and have an adventurous bonding time as a group. This way, you'll be even more motivated as you are reminded that you have your besties to get through another school year!

Professional basketball player Hamady Ndiaye proposed to her girlfriend Kameel on the beautiful El Nido, and SweetEscape were lucky enough to be a part of their beautiful love moment! Read through to see how their love story unfolds!
I met Kameel on July 31st 2010 and I never let go of her since that day.
We been together 9 years and I basically asked her out in the first week or two after the first time we saw each other.
I told my Best friend and Brother within the Hour after meeting her "I think I found HER" (referring to the woman of my dreams), and we still talk about it to this day.
I have been planning it since 2016 all the pieces came together this year. Sweet Escape was the last piece of the puzzle that I needed to actually confirm that I was going to do it because what’s an engagement to a Fashion Designer/Blogger without pictures and videos to capture the perfect moment.
Well I was sent on a vacation by senator Manny Pacquiao after my PBA season to Pangulasian island and I got to visit Miniloc at the time and all the small islands around El Nido which was when I decided that the next time I would come to the Philippines with my now fiancé would be the time make it happen in one of the most beautiful places I have been so far. That’s when the idea started cooking in my mind and took the time to perfect exactly what I wanted to happen.
That was a process as well because I wanted it to describe how much she means to me but also reflect her character on it. I wanted to make sure I covered every aspect of her dreams to make it a moment last a lifetime.
SweetEscape was referred to me by a good friend from Mighty Sports while we were competing to win the Jones Cup Gab Banal. I explained my plans and that the only part I couldn’t figure out was how to get a photographer on the island for the day. He Shared the link and upon discussing my intentions with them, they helped not just with pictures, but helped me prepare the place and directed the photo shoot so well that my fiancé couldn’t imagine what I was setting up for her. Once I gave them the go sign, they were prepared and set to capture every angle of the proposal with both their equipments and mine. It’s been the greatest moment for me and my fiancé and looking forward to our new chapter in life. Couldn’t be more thankful for the Philipines, Mighty Sports and SweetEscape for helping me bring this amazing dream to life for us!
We're always happy and excited to be a part of everyone's love journey! For every lovely moment, SweetEscape is ready to capture every detail for you! Book now and let's #MakeLifeMemorable!
