Hooray, another long weekend is coming up! No doubt, the first thing you’d want to do is plan a short trip to the beach, to the mountains, or out abroad. But, let’s keep it real, there are also plenty of other ways to spend your mini-non-working holiday without spending more than a thousand bucks.
Spend your afternoons at home and, together, let’s get crafty and personal. Grab your Coffee & Donuts Enamel Pin, your Good Vibes Iron-On Patch, and your trusty ol’ denim jacket. Then, select a spot for your favorite patches and pins and have them locked on permanently. Read up on the step-by-step instructions in our previous article, A Canvas For Self-Expression , and you’ll have your worn-out jacket vamped up and looking brand new in no time!

Slip into your Popsicle Low Cut Socks and jump out the door for a workout. With all the latest exercise trends coming to the metro, such as indoor cycling, rowing, pilates, bikram yoga, crossfit, and so much more, why not book yourself a class and see if they’re worth the hype and the sweat.
Wear your Brighter Days Camera Strap up in your sleeve and do a photowalk around the city. The concrete jungle of Bonifacio High Street sure would be a good place to start as it is full of vibrant street art and colorful walls for your Instagram #OOTD money shot. Or you can try strolling around the streets of Legazpi Village in Makati for more of a feel of nature as there are plenty of greens all over the streets.
Maybe you want to just stay in and relax? Then, plug in your headphone and browse through the list of new shows on Netflix. Have GIRL BOSS on your queue of shows to binge-watch if you’re up for some laughs. Or do a classic throwback and watch Bewitched, Made of Honor, or My Girl for a perfect chick flick movie night.
You might want to use this long weekend too to finally have some time to paint, write, draw, or create. So unroll your Summer Fun Pencil Case , gather a handful of Pinterest inspiration, lay out your pens and tools, and continue on your works in progress.
