In case you still have a dreadful holiday hangover, here’s something to amp up that post-New Year feeling of warmth. We're sure a lot of you stayed in the city these past few days. But for those who can afford to jet away (read: celebrities), the holiday season becomes a mini-vacation for escaping the hustle and bustle of Manila. Catriona Gray, Heart Evangelista, and Bea Alonzo are just some of our favorite women who took a break from the madness. Let these ladies reignite the 2020 vibes through their candid vacay snaps.
2019 was a challenging year for the award-winning actress, but nevertheless, she conquered it! To reward herself for a job well done, Bea went on various trips this December: Cebu, Paris, and most recently, Berlin, Germany.
Miss Universe 2018 Catriona enjoyed her quality time with her family in Western Australia. The picturesque spots that she posted on her IG account make us want to book a flight there ASAP!
