Anne Curtis’ Guide to Summer Travel Essentials


You’ve filed for leave, booked your tickets, reserved the hotel and mapped out your itinerary. Perhaps the only thing you have to do now is pack—arguably the most stressful thing you have to do before you go off your much-awaited summer jaunt.


So take your cue from Anne Curtis, Brand Ambassador of American Tourister Philippines, whose busy lifestyle, wanderlust and love for the season has narrowed it down to the most useful travel must-haves for the season. Between jetting off to Australia to spend time with family, wanting to explore Hamilton Island or the Northern Territory or even checking off Nepal this year on her summer go-to list, here are some of her summer travel essentials.

Anne can easily grab and store her phone, sunnies, and even a throw on dress in the Buzz backpack. Easy to reach compartments and a variety of colors to choose from, this line captures style, convenience, and comfort into one carry on.

Sunnies


What would summer be without a nice pair of sunglasses? Whether you’re sunbathing on a sunny coast or touring exotic new locales, nothing says relaxed sophistication than a sun-drenched photo of yourself sporting your favorite pair. 

Sunblock


It’s summer after all—so expect the rays to beat down. Be sure to slap on a lot of sunblock to protect yourself as you lounge by the shore or walk the streets of a new a city.
 
Anne stores her travel essentials neatly tucked away in the Gelato, an all-in-one soft-case luggage that will fit all your travel essentials for the summer but still remain convenient due to its ultra-lightweight technology.

The throw-on dress


Pack one of the most versatile pieces you can possibly bring on any trip—a simple, airy shift dress can be work with comfortable flip-flops or sandals for a leisurely stroll, over swimwear as a cover-up or if accessorized right, becomes a simple, night-out look.

The all-around clutch


Pack your daily essentials into a roomy clutch that can carry your passport, tickets, wallet, cellphone and all your other must-have travel essentials that you want easy access to. Not only will you know where to find everything as you rummage through your carry-all, it can double as a handy little clutch for nights out.

Your cellphone


It has a camera, first of all—so you can easily take memorable snaps from your trip for posterity and doubles as an entertainment source for all your favorite films and music. On a more practical note, it helps to have your phone with you (even when on vacation) just to make sure that you can communicate in the event of an emergency.
 
The HS MV +, as colorful and unique as Anne, will definitely complete any summer trip with it’s functional yet fashionable design. This hard-case luggage makes traveling easier as it is sturdy and light-weight.

A good book


It’s a great way to pass the time while waiting for flights and it’s an absolute essential as you try to soak in the seaside rays.

Your favorite swimwear


The great thing about this season is the sheer variety of swimwear options that you have at your fingertips. A bikini, a one-piece, a tankini, rashguards, board shorts, you name it. They’re pretty lightweight so you can easily pack as many as you want.

Your dependable luggage


Speaking of packing, you’ll need a trusty, dependable yet fashionable suitcase that’s sturdy enough to withstand even the longest of flights and keep your precious travel essentials tucked neatly (and safely)  away until they’re ready for use. Choose one in a lively, bright hue, like the limited edition HS MV+ Landmark Prints line from American Tourister, which is available in fun, candy colors, to make it easily recognizable as it emerges from the baggage carousel. And when it comes to the most convenient soft case options, Gelato goes easily on the overhead compartments or as conveniently checked-in while  the Buzz backpack line and Jiffy Duffle line comes in stylish, understated hues perfect for sightseeing.

For Anne, American Tourister has always been her go-to pick for all her travel needs—a brand that has been trusted through the years by travellers for its dependability and exceptional style and allows her to check off one less thing on her travel to-do list.


The Jiffy duffle line is carried by Anne almost anywhere during the summer because of its understated hues and functional features like its maximized interior space and different compartments.
As for Anne’s perfect summer day?



“Lying down on a beautiful beach, getting a tan and reading an awesome book and just eating ice cream,” she shares.

And if you keep her summer travel essentials in mind as you pack for your perfect summer day, all you have to worry about now is choosing your ice cream flavor and finding that perfect Instagram filter to capture the moment.

Available in American Tourister Retail Stores and in leading Landmark, Robinsons, Rustan’s, Metro Gaisano and SM Department Stores nationwide.

Art, Music or Dance School Search for McKenzie: Lea De Castro Music Studio & Artist Center

McKenzie turned 2 last Monday, August 20, 2012.

She is displaying extreme interest to singing, dancing and art (color-ing! she would always say). This made us decide to check out the available music, art or dance schools in our area.


Last Sunday, we dropped by Lea De Castro Music Studio and Artist Center Inc in Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite. It is approximately 15 minutes away from our place.


Unfortunately, music lessons are offered only to kids 6yo and older.


They offer Baby Ballet for 3-5 year old kids. The person at the front desk told me they could accept kids younger than 3yo provided she is ready to be left alone in the studio with the dance teacher and the other kids.The Dance Studio is at the 2nd floor and parents can only wait outside. Hmmmnnn, I am not very sure if McKenzie can handle that but she does stay in the middle seats during birthday parties, along with other kids.


I was told we could bring her over to sit in one time for 30 minutes. The dance teacher would provide an ev…
