Travel Series : Happy Indie-pendence day! Vol.7
It was a long weekend well-spent celebrating indie-pendence day as we spent it in a cafe in Lipa City. Yes, in Lipa. Wondering where it is? Well, it's almost an hour and a half away from the city. It was a pretty long drive for coffee, but coffee wasn't really the only reason why I decided to go there, but the ambiance. This beautiful concrete has so much love and story in it, so much love that people decided to visit everyday just to experience it. Every corner of the place has a story to tell, from the photographs, drawings and inspirational wall arts hanged on the wall. You could tell that this place was made with so much love and experieces by the couple who was inspired to do this.
Make sure to check their Instagram:
This is what you will see as you enter the cafe. Feeling the love already? Cause I am. There's a big sign of NO WIFI ZONE for people to connect inside rather than on their phones. So save the Instagram photo later!
Could this place get any better? They are not only a cafe but they also sell vintage and bohemian things. Such as accessories, handmade pieces, boots and many more. I swear this place is like a piece of heaven on earth. As the quote says "Handmade goodies for the indie souls" you got that right! I was lucky enough to spot two rings that complete was love at first sight and it was just 200PHP for two. Pretty awesome!
How I wish we had something like in this in the city.
Tons of vintage items all around the cafe.
There are also few activities you can do while you're enjoying your coffee or meal, there's a guitar you can play, sungka (which btw was Miggy's first time to play) and some books you could read. This place is an all-in-one go-to place. I mean, what more could you ask for?
I was able to squeeze in an #OOTD as usual.

Thank you for always coming with me in all my adventures, even some crazy ones as this with the distance.
What you're looking at is not an ordinary dream catcher but is also a unique head piece. For this trip, I decided to hang it in the car since the sun shined to it so magesticaly.
Bought myself these beautiful rings as souvenir. It's a piece of story that I can take home with me.
Plus matching it with custom made foot piece from @PurpleBeetle that truly made an impact during my trip.
All smiles heading back home definitely an indie-pendence day I will never forget since I found a piece of myself in this beautiful place.
