Aside from relaunching Know Beauty with a four-minute facial, delivering a constant stream of very good looks, and keeping us on our toes regarding her wedding plans (Hi, Cole Tucker!), the actress is also taking some well-deserved me time with a tropical getaway to the Philippines — and she posted the sexiest pictures to prove it. Vanessa Hudgens/IG Clearly, having a better Wednesday than all of us, she shared a series of photos on Instagram detailing a day spent relaxing in crystal-clear waters surrounded by tropical cliffs. In the first picture, the actress was soaking in the sun while sporting a brown leopard-floral patterned string bikini top and matching bottoms. Baby V accessorized the warm-weather look with Dezi cuffed shades, a gold pendant necklace and cuff, a body chain, and chunky hoops. Vanessa Hudgens/IG The rest of the photo dump showcased the star enjoying the escape alongside her mother, Gina, and younger sister, Stella, as they tested out their paddle-boarding skills. “Paradise #foreverphilippines,” she captioned the post.
