The sun and I seldom get along. For most of the time, I feel encumbered by its bright orange heat. There are days, however, when summer’s vapors rise high enough to form clouds that calm the sun’s harsh rays. Just then, it becomes the perfect time for something like a pool party: a time to let all worries float away.
LiFE Yoga Pool Party
Following the success of the #YogaPoolParty in February (check it out here!), LiFE Yoga amped it up for its summer serving of yoga, swim, and dance in May. The Palace Pool Club at BGC was bedecked in pops of color, a perfect backdrop to a white summer OOTD. White rib knit dress from Korean Rose. Grey and transparent summer tote customized with my initials from SM Parisian. Navy Blair slingback flats, fresh from the Parisian Shoes and Bags 2016 Summer Collection featuring Nadine Lustre. Needless to say, the tote and flats easily found their place in my summer staples list.
Love the sun
Speaking of summer staples, I’m glad NIVEA sent me this NIVEA Sun Care and Protection kit just in time. Fun in the sun becomes easier when I know I’m protected from prickly sunburn, dry skin, pigmentation, and irreparable damage. Of course, smoothing on SPF is important even in covered areas, since UV rays still penetrate the skin. I probably don’t need to elaborate though—chances are you’ve got your own #NiveaSunProtects stash, right? So there’s nothing in the way of enjoying sunny moments like these.
You can watch the short video recap of the sessions, with LiFE Yoga’s Ryan Camarillo, Flow Arts, Planet Zips, Philippine Surfing Academy, and Kundalini Yoga Manila, with DJ Katsy Lee providing the beats.
I hope to see you in the next ones. This movement festival is truly something that stirs the soul. Seems like under the right circumstances and with the right company, even rain lovers like me can learn to enjoy sun salutations.
