Here, you'll find some samples of Guiltless Getaways. This is where my love for travel, adventure, culture, language, music, food, arts, history and having fun come together.

I am inviting you to see the world and its people in a different light. I am not the expert but the people I come across are. My goal is to share my experience and what I saw. I consider myself as a willing road tester (so that I may get lost first before you and gladly show you the way), an eager foodie (I love convincing you to try different cuisines - and I'm so glad I was introduced to organic food through this blog), a time traveler (I love telling you to revisit the places that my elders talk about and encouraging you to remember the lost places you used to enjoy as a child) and a repeat traveler (I love filling you with experiences of places that I love over and over because the world changes with time). I want to leave a legacy and a trail that you can continue in your own journey - to live this life without regrets.

Soon, you'll get to know the beauty of Manila, the Philippines and the World.

Love,
Meloy =)

Buy Pinoy, Wear Some Colorful and Affordable Caribbean Slippers this Summer!

Let's interrupt our regular programming and be mindful of our surroundings for a while =) Can you feel the heat around you? It's definitely summertime already in the Philippines! Where are you off to? Are you taking care of one of your most important assets to traveling? I'm talking about your FEET! Time to bring out those summer dresses, shorts (even for the guys here) and colourful but comfy flip-flops!

When in the Philippines, I know that you know that slippers are must-haves for the beach, malls and even treks haha. Do you have bright ones though that will go with your mood and color scheme for the summer? In comes the Caribbean Urban Safari Collection that was just launched this year!

I first saw this in SM Baguio when I was looking for slippers after my Mt. Pulag trip so it is sold nationwide, People! The company behind Caribbean was a former manufacturer for big footwear companies since 1995 and they decided to enter the flip-flop market last 2010. Their latest designs were suggestions from students and youngsters and you'll definitely feel it with the print haha.

When looking for slippers, I look for one that is comfortable,

affordable so you can buy as much as you need

and looks good on my feet! Haha. I tell you I try to have a picture of my feet with slippers or shoes per trip hehehe.

Well, it turns out that Caribbean slippers cost around 199 to 299 only and the composition of their material (after PIPAC analysis - the one for chemical analysis in Ateneo) is the same as a famous brand of imported slippers! You get the quality at an affordable price =) My friend says it's made of material that doesn't make your feet stink too unlike other slippers ;)

You also get to support a Pinoy enterprise and help our fellow Filipinos with every pair you purchase!

Caribbean claims that they have anti-slip technology in all their slippers - a major plus for me when traveling or hiking or trekking or doing what I normally do I always slip! So it's time to test its claimed durability as well! We'll know in a few trips. Haha. I've personally broken a few straps of some imported ones.. then reconnected them by fire only to have it break again hahaha.

I encourage you to just try it on - go to a Landmark or SM, look for it then check if a pair of Caribbean is enough for you ;) After all, the design is just a plus, the main thing for me is comfort.

So far, my few days of journey with it around the city has been fine. I'll take it to Bali with me this month to test the waters and the anti-slip thing hehe.

As for the design, it's not in the current selection but I've fallen in love with the wild color below too.. haha.

I'm also curious how my pair can help improve my posture =)

By the way, they also have slippers in the collection for men =)

I hope you enjoyed this break and segment. I just think you might be looking for flip-flops and deem it worth it to spend P199 for your own pair of Caribbean for your travels ;) Enjoy the summer holiday!

I just want a slippers that is very comfortable on my feet. I really don't mind whatever the brand is as long as it looks good & very comfy. When it comes to problems regarding my slippers uhmm mostly is because of the strap. It causes me allergies & it really hurts. Never tried to take a picture on my feet wearing a slippers. Maybe next time haha & it's because of you :)

  10. Well, I always want a slippers by there style and how comfy it is to where. I always slipped to every slippers I bought. I'm suffering from spasm or "pasmado" and causes for my feet to stinks. It's really difficult for me to find a slipper that suits my feet. Because of my feet problem I used shoes more often. I never had a Caribbean slippers before. But, I'm planning to buy one. I would love to try those slippers. Plus the fact that its made by our fellow Filipinos, its make me proud and adore them at the same time. I'm also curious about that anti-slipping thing. Hope it works for me. Maybe, I go with the seasonal designs. It's kinda attractive to choose. No, I don't take pictures of my feet when traveling. But in shoes, I do.

    I always look for the slippers that focuses in comfort for our feet.

    For me, it's when the design of the slippers fade away because you've using them for a long time. I would want to see a slipper that will still look brand new even after a few years, I wished.

    I use slippers, they allow my fee to breathe.

    Do you own a pair of Caribbean?

    Nope, I would love to have one.

    Would you consider trying Pinoy-made Caribbean slippers?

    Of course, let's support our own products

    Definitely the classics, they never go out of style.

    Lastly, do you take pictures of your feet when traveling too or is it just me?
