As her style evolves through the years, so does her travelling adventure. From Bolzano to Taiwan and Sydney to Milan, Cindy’s love for beauty in the world continues through her next destination which she shared with us.

His account, @kartupostinsta, is a wanderlust-inducing gallery filled with exotic destinations, intense photographic proofs and dreamy colorful vibes, making him one of our most favorite travel influencers of all.
For his end-of-year holiday, Kenny chooses everyone’s favorite destination on earth - Iceland. The reason is none other than to experience again the surreal and phenomenal Aurora Borealis in the winter through his own eyes.

When we asked them to name a destination for holiday inspiration, their pick goes to Positano. The beauties have had a chance to visit the coastal paradise of Italy one October and dreamed of reminiscing the breezy sunny days while frolicking in style. With a great pick like this, we can’t help but agree.

She dished out her travel recommendation and it’s no surprise that this globetrotter picks London, UK for her year-end holiday. The Christmas spirit and full-on holiday vibes are the main reason for her selection, as she continued with more “ London is full with pretty lights that complement all the beautiful buildings! Plus the old and new experience at the Seine River bank was definitely amazing. The fireworks were one of the world’s best!”
Looking to relive her experience with her fiance, we wish this pretty lady happy travels!

Filipinos are known for their long holiday celebration. Many traditions and new ways keep this season alive no matter which city or town you go. You won't run out of things to do (but your budget probably will!) when you celebrate the holidays in the Philippines through these activities:
It's this time of the year when massive pop-up year-end bazaar and sale events happen, so go ahead and take advantage of the markdown madness to complete your Christmas gift list.
How many masses have you attended so far? Get up early or spare an hour so you could attend the mass at night because as they say, completing the 9-day or -night series will make a wish come true.
As soon as the holiday season comes, many parks and tourist attractions open Christmas-themed shows that are perfect for all ages. These Instagram-worthy locations are usually free of charge, making them picturesque and cheery venues to gather with your friends and families.
It has been part of the Filipino tradition to gather in groups and sing either classic or remixed tunes as they go from one house to another. Just as long as you know the lyrics to the in-trend Christmas songs, you'll definitely get those coins, or if you're lucky, you'll receive bills from your kind neighbors!
Many Filipinos love merrymaking, so expect most of your December weekends, and sometimes, weekdays too, to blocked off with schedules of parties. It's also a time to meet the newborns or catch up with the relatives who you haven't spoken to for a long time. Make your reunion party more memorable and let SweetEscape photographers turn your moments into beautiful photographs. Special for this holiday season, get 50% OFF on your 2-hour photo shoot, anywhere in Manila.
The Filipino version of Secret Santa is a more exciting and interesting one because gift-giving is done in small batches. Whether the category's something big, something fluffy, something embarrassing, or something naughty, you'll surely go home with a smile on your face because your friend or officemate could surely find a gift to pull that category or theme off!
For some Filipinos, the holiday season means quality time, without the hassle of preparing feasts or organizing parties. Some simply prefer staying in or booking an accommodation where they could all relax and exchange thoughtful gifts after a hearty meal.
To some who've been looking forward to a unique kind of celebration for the holidays, setting off to another country is an option. School or office breaks give them a chance to explore new places, making their holidays a more memorable one.
In times like these, memories are meant to be saved. Especially if you've waited long enough for your family to be complete this holiday season, don't miss the chance to document those moments — let SweetEscape do it for you.
