We’re just a few days till the end of the year and the holiday season. I know in the Philippines, my household included, Christmas decorations stay up even a month after the actual holiday. Maybe half of the reason is because we’re lazy to take it down but I think it’s mainly because we want to hold on to the holiday spirit. However, you’re going to have to move on eventually. To speed up the process, we thought that tropical-themed products could help. These range from not just home items, but beauty travel and beauty as well.
Heys Philippines 26” Fashion Spinner
Prepare for your next beach vacation with appropriate luggage. This has a tropical print of green-colored leaves. It is made of a lightweight but durable material do you don’t have to worry about it being tossed around in the airport. This also comes in a 30” size if you want a complete duo when traveling. Available on Zalora PH.
Ika Watermelon Clutch
Add a tropical touch to your outfit with this watermelon clutch. This statement piece is made of hard acrylic and has chain strap for when you want to wear it across your body. Pair this with either a plain outfit or an equally colorful ensemble. Available on Miz and Moxie.
H&M Home Slub-weave Cushion Cover
Switch out your holiday home decor with something fresh and vibrant. This throw pillowcase comes in a teal color with a fruit and leaves pattern. If you have more than one cushion, you can get the white and yellow ones too. Available at SM Makati.
Lush Green Coconut Bath Bomb
Coconut is probably my favorite scent for beauty products so this bath bomb is on my must-try list. It will leave your skin feeling soft because of its seaweed extract. You’ll feel like you’re laying by the beach with its coconut aroma and leafy green color. Available at Bonifacio High Street.
