As part of the record label Careless Music Manila, Nadine lives for music nowadays. Wherever she goes, she puts a bit of song on, giving life to her amazing summer escapades to places like Siargao and Zambales.

That is why for music lovers out there, do not forget to bring your speakers and hit that summer playlist to the beach or to the mountains. And if you do not have one yet, click here for some celeb-approved suggestions!


Janella Salvador reveals to StarStudio.ph that she plans to go to the beach this summer, and one essential she would never forget is sunblock, to protect her skin from the blazing summer heat as she lies down in the sandy shores.

According to condolux.net, while many of us remember to bring sunblock when we return home, we might find it a surprise that we still have a bit of sunburn. The site suggests making sure you know what SPF suits your skin!

Another Janella suggestion is lip tint. Why? As stated in bellabox Australia, a beauty trial website, the summer season is all about lighter, natural touches. It is all about having fresh, dewy skin. A lightly tinted lip shade is the perfect look finisher!

The recently concluded dramaserye Halik is a cue for hunk Sam Milby to relax and travel. Apart from visiting his dad in the States, Sam Milby expressed his excitement about scuba diving, which he recalled doing right here. That is why when asked what his travel essentials were, the first thing that came to his mind was a water-proof speaker.

He reminds us to get the beach-ready kind, though. “When you go to the beach, masisira ‘yung speaker kapag nabasa ng konti. That’s going to suck.”  

He adds: “If you have some kind of drone or GoPro or device to make those memories, bring that along, [like] a good camera.”  

When traveling with a group, Sam also suggests board games. He believes it is a fun thing to do at night after a long day of frolicking about. He recommends the digital boardgame Jackbox Party Pack, a collection of easy-to-play party games involving different things like doodles, trivia questions, and jokes that could be played on your smartphones. Cool! 


Sexy actress Roxanne Barcelo gamely named not just one, but four travel essentials that she needs to get that perfect summer getaway going.

The first that came to her mind was a tropical-floral two-piece swimsuit for the ladies.

“A two-piece that will make you feel happy and just confident about your looks!” she explained. “Also, bring out your books ‘cause when you are out and you’re at the beach, you can drink and have a good time with your friends, but one awesome thing to do is just sit by the beach, read, and fill your head with a lot of knowledge by reading.”

The model-actress also recalls her mala beads, an accessory used in mantra meditation practices that acts as a guide as she sits in silence. “It’s nice to have a stress-free summer vacation,” she narrates. “I practice transcendental meditation, so mala beads help me to just stay grounded.”

The last of her travel essentials happen to be fruits. “Whatever fruit makes you happy, eat that fruit all day every day, every time of the week,” she told us. And her happy fruit? Langka and durian.  She loves ‘em spiky and sweet!

According to travel website Eagle Creek, a basic toiletry kit usually contains a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, comb, deodorant, shampoo, make-up, sunscreen, facial wash, Q-tips, lip balm, glasses, sunglasses, and prescription medication, to name some.

“’Pag dating ko sa hotel, kinukuha ko ‘yung mga brochure at tsaka map, para hindi ako mawala. So, kung saan ako pumupunta, palagi akong may map,” the actor reveals. “Wala kang dahilan para mawala.”
