Our Baby Barangay x Butterfly Twists Weekend Getaway


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.

img_1012A trip to the spa wouldn’t be complete without a pot of tea.

img_0990This view never gets old.

img_1029We all loved our massages at Qi, thank you Butterfly Twists!

img_1060We were so inspired to paint and create!

img_1050We learned how to paint and decorate these plates. It was so much fun!
