Embrace The Sun – A Giveaway! #EmbraceTheSunwithNS

posted in: Giveaway! | 49

One of the things that I used to look forward to when I was young were our family summer trips. We would often get together with my mom and dad’s friends and go to the beach. We’d load up our van, prepare our sandwiches for the road, we’d go to the grocery to stock up on chips and drinks, and as soon as we get to the beach, it becomes a test of patience because our parents wouldn’t let us dive in to the waters immediately. We had to change into our swimming gear, pile on loads and loads of sunscreen and wait for an adult to accompany us. At the time it definitely felt like torture, especially the sunscreen bit because hello – I just want to feel the sand on my feet and the salt water on my skin – it was a challenge to stand still while I had sunscreen slathered on me haha.

 

These days though, I find myself more and more concerned about my skin and my hair – two elements that take a beating whenever summer rolls in and summer getaways abound. I always stock up on sunscreen, a hair oil of some sort to stop my hair from drying out and an insect repellent haha! I have a few getaways planned with friends and family for the summer so I’ve been preparing my summer kit – and while I was doing so, I thought hey, why not share these with my readers? YES guys, I am giving away a set of products which I think are essential for any summer getaway (or even to use everyday, given our tropical summer heat haha)! Included in this giveaway are the following:

 

EmbraceTheSunwithNS Giveaway NinaSinganon.com summer giveaway 2017

 

Sowell Dry Hair Comb

I hate walking around with dripping wet hair at the beach haha, that’s why when I saw this, I thought this would be perfect for all of you beach babes – it says the microfiber hair brush will shorten your hair’s drying time.

 

Skin Genie Healthy Sunscreen with Insect Repellent, Mousturizer and SPF75

While I do love a good tan, I am afraid of the damage the sun causes on our skin. It’s important to always apply sunscreen and this is great because it works as a insect repellent too! You can stay out at night, have a romantic stroll along the coast (yihee) or party the night away without having to worry about insects biting you!

 

Beach Born Sunset Spray

We should always take care of our crowning glory – split and frayed ends are a no-no; and frizzy and dry hair is not nice to look at! Spray this to protect your hair from the heat and sunlight!

 

Farmstay It’s Real Aloe Gel Mist

After a couple of hours at the beach, this refreshing face mist is definitely going to be a treat! I sometimes keep mine in the fridge so it’s extra cooling and I have been loving it.

 

Sooperbeaute Lip and Cheek Rolly in Darling

I think when you are at the beach, it is best to go with minimal make up and give your skin a chance to breathe. I thought a lip and cheek tint would work really well and this one from Sooperbeaute is easy to use, very pigmented and lasts a good number of hours!

 

Blue Floral Travel Pouch

Of course, you’ll need somewhere to put all of these in so I am also giving away this really nice, very helpful/functional travel pouch. I have a few of these – one in the car, one for my planner supplies and one that I use as a medicine bag and I am sure you will like this as much as I do!

    Yay! love these products!

    My favorite summer memory is the way how I always see the summer as a child. I remember my 8-year old self counting down days for my summer break, and certainly, my excitement day by day is beyond compare! It will always remind me of my little self as to how I picturesque summer as my playing season. And though the pavement is genuinely too hot to walk in during these months, I will always miss the idea of my childhood days, by which my favorite experience during summer is the way how I brace myself into playgrounds, elating my random self with the swings and slides with the enjoyable company of my playmates just because the school is out. And just like every child who played larong Pinoy, those moments are the things that makes me fall in love with summer!!! Indeed, good memories float in the chest touch of summer glee.

    When me and whole family went to our province Southern Leyte.And we’re so excited to go at the Sea of Maasin it was really amazing and fun summer bonding with whole family member.Such an memorable isn’t it?

  4. Sheena May Bautista

    My favorite summer memory is when the whole family went to the jeds island resort in bulacan we had so much fun spending the whole time together its just a priceless moment for me 😍😍

  5. Jennifer Timonel

    Hi sis, thanks for this wonderful opportunity. My favorite summer memory was when my whole family went to Salagdoong Beach in Maria Siquijor. Yun talaga ang pinaka the best na summer so far for me. Napakaganda ng place,food at higit sa lahat nag samasama kaming buong family.

  6. Maribel Quebral

Good thing, these summer essentials of yours are just perfect too.. I am hoping and would love to win these. More powers Ms. Niña! Godbless.😊

    By the way, my favorite summer memory was when I joined a company summer outing with staff and faculty of STI, which also my first time to travel with them. It was also my first flight. (that’s why I’m soo excited and nervous, too.😁)😍✈ We travel to Coron in Palawan. I was amazed with the place itself, enjoying each moment especially island hopping, swimming, the foods and all. It was really an unforgettable summer moment of my life.👍🐚🌊🏊

    Summer during my childhood days used to be my favorite. Going home to my mom’s birth province, seeing all my cousins, making “mano” to every elderly people around, climbing up every fruit bearing trees (mangga, siniguelas, kaimito) then sliding down a bamboo which often rips my shortpants. haha!
    Now I am older and in a relationship. I look forward to summer memories created with him. We’d go on motorcycle roadtrips to provinces. The very first looooong ride I experienced was when we went to Ilocos! That was 15 hours on the road until we reached Pagudpud. Tiring but awesome. Believe it or not, long rides makes us more relaxed. Maybe because of the beautiful scenery. The rice paddies, corn fields, tobacco plants.. I don’t know. Summer and long rides has been a favorite thereafter. :)

  9. Joseph Banghal

    My summer memory is gathering bonding together with family and friends as well having fun, chill and happings all the way. #EmbraceTheSunwithNS

  10. My most memorable summer is when we went to Potipot Island in Zambales because its my time to go on a camping in an island.

  11. Ann Margot Gabris

    Summer at South Cotabato is my memorable summer vacay with my family. We experience the Highest Zipline at all Southeast Asia at Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. It was our first ever zipline experience.

  12. Xiyan Daienn Co (FB)

    I grew up in Pampanga where summer for us is all about Holy week. I remember when me and my friends was in grade school and watch out for the devotees carrying their cross and follow them through their “stations” under the burning heat. We don’t mind and don’t even bother then to protect our skin against the harmful rays of the sun. And today, I am doing my best to protect my skin because I realized how important it is in boosting my confidence.

  13. Hope to win… I do love summer because you get to have a vacay….

  14. Mary Jean Avilla

    Wow, summer giveaways..luv it

  15. My favorite summer memory is looking forward to the family beach trips. But now, all I want to do is stay at home because I’m not the biggest fan of the intense heat!! :(

    Thanks for sharing your summer essentials! Beach Born Sunset Spray & Skin Genie Healthy Sunscreen look promising! I wanna try them out! Are they really good?

  16. My favorite summer memory is of my first and only trip to Palawan. That’s when I discovered the beauty of the Philippine Beaches.

  17. My favorite summer memory was a long time ago i think i was in elementary, we’re still complete as a family.. We’d always go to batangas every summer, we’d go banana boat with my siblings, make castle sands, with mom and dad, play with the waves, and chasing for the the little crabs, but things have change now, and i really missed those moments, i miss having summer with my family 😊❤️

  18. My favorite summer memory be playing volleyball in a little league set up during summer. It was a preparation for our fiesta in May 28. It really is amazing. Enjoying life in the province has never been this good, if I only could go back to those times.

  19. Thryshia May Mendizabal

    My most memorable summer memory is when our whole family get together and went to a resort. It was a blast! Because it was once in a blue moon. ❤😍

  20. When I was a child, I loved spending the entire day outside playing childhood games like patintero, chinese garter, etc and, riding bikes, going to the neighborhood swimming pool, and chasing the ice cream truck for bomb pops every day. I would stay outside until the crickets started chirping and then knew it was time to go inside. The feel of the sun on my face, ice cream dripping down my chin, and a refreshing dip in the pool represent the very best of summer to me.

  21. Mariella Vasquez

    My most memorable summer memory would be in C O R O N. Def! It is embedded in my core memory😊. No words can describe that place. God’s beautiful creation indeed. Simple living. Unlimited Crabs. Island Hopping. Marine life at it’s finest and esp. the warm people of coron. Happy to enjoyed with favorite person. ❤️

    Thanks Ms. Nina for the oppurtunity to join in this raffle ☺️

  22. When we were younger, our family would go to the beach at 100 islands almost every summer. We would Ride on a bus for 4 to 6 hours, get on a banca and stay overnight on one of the islands. I love to swim and eat grilled food like we are on a boodle fight. We would really get so tanned that even if we put on sunscreen, our skin is so burned. In some summer when we donlt go to the beach, we would love to make ice candy or halo halo and enjoy the hot afternoon.

  23. Yung summer na naka Graduate ako ng College, Yun na kasi yung last outing na magkakasama kami lahat. Kasi iba iba ng career ang pupuntahan namin. Kasama ko yung mga tao na kasama ko sa saya, hirap at sa stress nung college. Yung mga tinuring kong kapatid at natuto ako ng madami na kasama sila.

  24. My favorite summer memory was way back in 2015 when we went to Fontana. It was a pleasurable experience because we stayed there overnight :) Thanks for being so generous as always ♥♥♥

  25. My favorite summer adventure was when I met my childhood sweetheart on the family outing. THen after that day we got to share our heart to heart talk until we get each other phone numbers until we got home from my lolas house we never leave each other that day. And now we will celebrate our 2nd anniversary on April 15 @ cabongoanan beach, pangasinan. So badly need those giveaways for summer! I thanked you for the kindhearted giveaways. God bless you always!

  30. angelie namindang

    My favorite summer getaway was last year during our company outing with bosses. It was my favorite because i had a chance to bond with my boss and perfect lang siya, no stress from work just totally enjoying the getaway. Swimming, eating, and playing with Co workers.

  31. Meryl Nuguit

    My favorite summer memory was the summer after I gave birth to our fifth child, our only daughter. I had no beach body, I didnt buy twin outfits for me and my daughter, but I felt fabulous all the same–because my daughter was finally with us and we felt really complete.
    The sun, sea and sand—imbibed with the wonderful energy of love.

  32. Klei Anne A. Yacat

    My favorite summer memory was when me and the whole fam went to Laguna. We enjoyed swimming and hiking in Three Falls.That memory was so priceless. :) And I hope that it will happen again.

  33. Liza Parafina

    summer memory ko ay yung nagpunta kami ng family ko sa nasugbu, batangas may beach dun malinis ang tubig at konti lang mga tao… hindi crowded… hindi sya white sand pero ang ganda ng view. First time namin magpunta ng family ko dun at first time din maligo ng anak ko sa beach. Ang saya tignan ng anak ko kasi naenjoy nya maligo dun… eto yung summer memory ko na pare-pareho kami happy at nag-enjoy.

  34. Jeanette Layar

    One of our great adventure and thriller family summmer memory was way back 2015 at Dahilayan Adventure Park at Iligan City. Me and my husband decided to conquered the Dual Zipline, one of the Asia’s longest dual zipline.

  35. Mhel Delos Santos

We had fun, enjoy our bond together and swear i’ll never forget that moment 😔 but sadly they all have to work overseas again just to give me a better future.

  36. Vanessa Ang

    My FAVORITE SUMMER GETAWAY is yung nag shoot kami ng DOCUMENTARY FILM 7 years ago with my classmates. Napili naming location ay ang bayan ng Batangas. Doon ay naranasan namin umakyat ng puno at kumuha ng Buko. Naranasan din namin kung paano gumawa ng lambanog at magbalat ng buko. Natuto kami kung paano nga ba ang proseso ng mano manong paggawa ng LAMBANOG. :)
    Natuto ako kung paano nga ba ang buhay probinsya, malayo sa gulo at ingay ng syudad. Naging masaya at kapupulutan ng aral ang Summer Getaway na ito. Hinding hindi ko makakalimuta ito.

  37. Elinor Semira

    My favorite summer memory was having my summer vacation with my siblings in Batangas. Having long chats & playing street games with our cousins and we never missed going to the beach with the whole clan every summer. I just remember that we need to walk an hour or so to get to the beach, that’s why we called it Lawit Dila beach resort haha. How I miss all of them coz most of them are already in the States.

  38. Arleen Oboguin

    My favorite and unforgettable summer getaway is when I and my family got to go to an island called Kwebang lagpas in Quezon Province. We got to ride a boat to cross to that island. It was an amazing view, it has white sand and truly has a clear water. So amazing. My kids enjoyed playing under the sun

  39. Thank or this chance… My fab part for summer… Ahhh yung kasama buong angkan nagkakaroon ng bonding moments,nagkkitan. . tawanan at kantahan pa.. karelax din ang maligo sa dagat

  40. Maria Fernandez

    My favorite summer memory, yung tapos na school days ng mga students. Maraming time para makapagpahinga at magchillax sa bahay. 😊 Nanjan din ang time pano mag-drawing ng swimming, plano ng mga barkada tapos ilang buwan pa bago makulayan. 😄
    Ang maganda kapag pamilya naman ang nagset ng outing, natutuloy. Kaya every summer memorable talaga sya for me. 😊

    Thank you Ms. Nina ❤

  41. Lovely Benzal

    My favorite summer memory was in 2013 when my family became complete for the first time in years. My siblings and I were all busy with our own work and family so we could hardly spend time with our parents. We decided to go to Pansol, Laguna and a full day of fun at one of the private resorts there. It was a very valuable experience for us because we realized that we should be spending more and more time together. Since then, our whole family regularly meet and go out for dinner together at least once in 2 months. :)

  42. Arselyn de Guzman-Intoy

    Ang favorite summer nemory ko was during my highschool days kasi we used to have a family reunion every April 4. Nagpupunta kami sa beach where we some activities, and chikahan with my relatives. Nami-miss ko yun and hopefully maulit ulit.

  43. Grecel Villar

    Hubby and I loved travelling, in fact, we’ve been to 16 local destinations last year and this year we want to travel more. But my most memorable Summer is when we had a 3 days 2 nights tour in Ilocos last March 2015 as a celebration of our 11 years anniversary as a couple and post 2nd wedding anniversary celebration. We visited most of their tourist spots, eat local delicacies and have friends with local people.

  44. Ivi Sta. Maria

    My favorite summer memory was last April 2012, when we visited my father’s hometown in Daanbantayan, Cebu. The last time I visited the place was when i am 4y/o. I am very proud of this place, the beautiful beach is just a stone throw away from my grandmother’s house. The place retained its serenity despite being famous to tourist. We plan to visit again next year along with my own family, my husband and daughter.

  45. Maria Maria

    My most summer memory is when we went to a resort with my family and relatives.We really enjoyed our day. It’s memorable because we also celebrates our wedding anniversary. 😊

  46. Estilo Frost

    My favorite summer was last year. I have a girl cousin, of course we all have HAHAHA. Because last year we are getting close to each other which I like. It seems to me that we are in a competition, who is more greater and whatsoever. That’s why I’m so thankful that last year we had more time to bond. And also, we are getting mature. Summer , last year was so memorable, we are like adventurers together with my auntie’s.

  47. Ruffa Robles

    Well, It was just last year when we had our family summer vacation. All of us were happy because cebu is well known when it comes to wonderful islands. I was with my cousins when we decided to swim on a beach but we were out of money by that time so we decided to search for a beach that won’t cost a large amount of money, I don’t know what was the name of the beach that we went. It was beside the pantalan and all of us were taking off our clothes and jumped into the sea right away, we were laughing and enjoying our moment because even the sun was out and our skin burned, that didn’t stop us to keep on swimming. The funny part is, We were just like the other kids who doesn’t care about the place that were going because the important thing for us is to enjoy the summer vacation and make a memory that would last for a lifetime. Anyway, thank you ate Nina for giving me a chance to join this. Have a nice day and God bless 😍😍😍

  48. Anne Mercado

    My favorite summer memory was in 2015. It was in Bato Spring where we held our first family reunion. 😭 Got to meet my other cousins who were balik-bayan ❤
