ENGAGEMENT RINGS BASED ON PERSONALITY TYPES

Riiinnnggggsss! :)

I have been stalking LITTLE WHITE POUCH for like three months now and I must admit that I became a fan.  I do not really like the common jewelry pieces you see on stalls (actually, I am more interested with statement accessories), that's why, it was a joy checking their IG feed because they have a variety to choose from.  Their taste is unique yet classy. It is not extremely "too artistic" nor "super common".  In short, I love them and I am sure you would appreciate them too!!


Let me share to you a few of their products (Engagement rings to be exact) according to the categories I picked.  This is just too exciting!!!

1. An artist (painter, graphic designer, theater actor)


Artists usually want one of a kind engagement rings. Rings that would reflect their personality and style.

2. A woman who loves the water and the mountains:


I chose rings that reflect the color of nature. My favorite of the three would be the Opal because of its color play that reflects the color of the water and skies. Oh and it's part water! :) 



3.30 carat Zambian Emerald set in 14 karat bezel set ring. Reflects the color of Mountains.


Oval Shaped Opal set in 14 karat Rose Gold.
Color play of  Opal reflects the color of the skies, the water and the trees.



 3.  A woman who loves and knowledgable with jewels/diamonds/gold

5. Something timeless and can be passed from one generation to the next 

Rose cuts are antique cut diamonds that flourished in the 1500’s and were eventually replaced by the Brilliant cut in the 1900’s. And its making its comeback. This type of diamond is a very unique cut that gives off a softer brilliance compared to brilliant cut diamonds.  I think I chose this ring for the "timeless category" because it's proving to stand the test of time.

                                



5. A woman who wants it perfectly matched with their wedding bands

Our client had her engagement ring reset to this hammered textured band 
    to resemble the hammered wedding bands that we made for them.

7. Sporty woman

The owner of this ring is a sporty girl who wanted something she can wear during her activities.
 It's won't be a hindrance to her movements because of its thin band and bezel set tourmaline stone.
Oh and that knot detail gives a hint/feel of "movement".


This Princess cut engagement ring is also a very simple ring that sporty girls can wear anywhere, anytime.
The small stone, flushed into the ring, will definitely stay secure whatever the wearer chooses to do.

7. Purity Ring
This Dainty Ruby ring can be considered as a purity/promise ring because
 the Ruby's blood red color that symbolizes love.


This Heart shaped Diamond set in 14 karat gold can represent a promise to wait for true love.

CLUB BALAI ISABEL STAYCATION

Since I have been telling you about the scheduled rest we did for 3 days and 2 nights, let me share this to you in detail so you can have an idea on your next sabbatical trip :)

Me and Bryan have been looking for a place that is (1) within our budget (2) a short drive from Carmona (3)  a place that is not crowded (4) and has amenities that Risen can enjoy too.  We have been googling up until we stumbled upon Club Balai Isabel and the 4 points we have been eyeing for came in perfectly.  (1) It was on 50% off at Agoda (we paid 6700 for 2 nights)  (2) It was just like an hour away from Carmona (Talisay, Batangas - Exit at Tanauan via Star Toll) (3)  They are still free on a weekday - weekdays mean less people (4)  They have 3 pools and large spaces for our 4 year old to explore.






After 4 checks, we booked and drove to Club Balai Isabel :)








We were there early so we had to wait by the pool before we can check-in.  It was totally cool because we were allowed to use the pool and the other amenities.  Before 2pm we were given a room (we booked an Executive room).  They were also gracious for the request of transfer (from 3rd to 2nd floor) that we made.






The sweetness of doing nothing (la dolce far niente) finally began after we dropped our bags in the cabinets.  It was literally eat, swim, bed, then repeat for us.  I think it was the "less thinking and no planning" for three days that we enjoyed the most.  Oh wait, we used naman pala our brains when we ordered food! haha  I am posting the menu and prices here because I know these details are valuable for a Mrs. like us.






Seriously now, what I love about this 3 days 2 nights near get away was able to catch up with myself.  You see, when a wife or mom gets tired, the tendency is to imagine what life was like before.  Now, no regrets here, but I just have to admit that I miss being spontaneous, staying out of the city, practicing my stroke (water baby!!!), reading books while having Coke, staying under the sun, and not thinking of anything  "adult like" was sooooo relaxing!!! I was not #adulting for 3 days! Woohoooo.  Sounds selfish? Maybe. But it is so true.  I so miss myself and that 3 day 2 night stay was a very good way to get back to the groove of being a full time wife and mom.  I was really recharged.  It was like I can peel 10 kilos of Chayote with a smile!  haha











Now, would I recommend Club Balai Isabel on your next trip? YES! but only of you can only get for half the price.  Booking it for 6,700 a night is quite pricey of you ask me.  I have little issues with cleanliness, lack of towels in the pool area, no toothbrush and toothpaste (has to be requested), and late opening of pool areas (8 am) ;)

Be sure to check Agoda before booking!  And of course, be sure to rest and enjoy the sweetness of not doing anything!


 

And oh, I made a video to sum up our trip!  This is my first time so please be appreciative haha
