I am all for relaxing weekends, especially when they’re with my favorite group of ladies and their wonderful families. The Baby Barangay was recently invited to a Tagaytay getaway, which everyone (including our hubbies, babies and yayas) enjoyed. I loved that it was hosted by one of my favorite footwear brands: Butterfly Twists.
I am such a fan of their flats–they are super soft and comfortable. Seriously, when I wear them I feel like I’m walking on clouds (amazingly, the reason why they are so soft is because the shoes are lined with memory foam). Plus, they are foldable too, which make them your perfect travel companions. All you have to do is stick a pair in your purse and whip them out when your not-so-comfortable shoes are starting to hurt your feet. Personally, I don’t see the need for this as I would just wear my Butterfly Twists all-day. But for those of you who need to wear heels (especially all you working moms), this is a great option for you.
So we were all booked at the stylish and chic Domicillo Hotel in Tagaytay. I absolutely love this boutique hotel’s modern-industrial feel. The hotel is a passion project of handicraft designer and exporter Rene Alcala and was designed by Budji Layug, which explains why everything is so tastefully done. And it only has eight rooms, which was perfect because we had the whole place to ourselves.
This lovely view greeted us upon arrival. Taal Lake is truly a majestic view.
Tristan had just learned to walk without any help that week so that was pretty much all he did that weekend.
Father and son moment.
These two are just too adorable.
Love this momma right here, and of course, her little boy too!
What a view! This was at the roof deck of Domicillo Hotel.
The kids discover their shadows and were all too amazed when Carlos showed them different shadow animals.
Too cute, Juano!
These two were inseparable.
Lovely Cat and Nara.
Patty and Theo. The little guy was enjoying the electric fan haha. Simple joys.
Our little ball of energy, Theo!
Nara gives us a smile.
My Baby Barangay mommas with the babies. Nicole couldn’t join us this trip as she was down with the flu.
Our lovely room, and look, a paper bag from Butterfly Twists!
A room with a view.
So I couldn’t wait to try out my Butterfly Twists flats! Love them!
Next on the agenda, a relaxing massage at Qi Wellness Living, just next door to Domicillo Hotel.
Obviously happy to be there.
A trip to the spa wouldn’t be complete without a pot of tea.
My Baby Barangay girls and I love our Butterfly Twists!
This view never gets old.
We all loved our massages at Qi, thank you Butterfly Twists!
After our massages, we attended an arts and crafts class.
We were so inspired to paint and create!
We learned how to paint and decorate these plates. It was so much fun!
We all had an awesome time!
For dinner, we headed over to Antonio’s. The Lanai Lounge offers delicious cocktails–we had a few drinks before dinner.
Love the chandeliers at Antonio’s.
The menu specially made by Butterfly Twists for the Baby Barangay.
Carl and Cat.
This drink was just wow. If only I can remember the name! Haha.
My little family.
A must-order when in Antonio’s: Roasted Duck Breast with Fois Gras.
Meryll and Torto, who we invited since Nicole and her family couldn’t make it.
I think we closed the place haha. We had such an amazing evening.
Thank you, Butterfly Twists for this wonderful getaway! <3
