America’s Next Top Model Cycle 18 British Invasion Winner Is…

Sophie Sumner ANTM Cycle 18

While it comes to me as a surprise that she won, I’m glad that she was hailed winner of this cycle’s America’s Next Top Model. I’ve loved her since the day she rocked her pink hair (because I love pink) which definitely did a lot for her personality and her presence. She just commanded attention every time she walked in the scene with that gutsy pink crown of hair and her bubbly personality.


While her photos are not always on top, and undeniably, Laura took better photos than her, I’...

I’ve had the biggest! crush! on Ian “Sex God” Somerhalder for the longest time, and never in my wildest dreams have I imagined that Ian Somerhalder will ever get on a plane and ride all the way to Manila.

Barry M in Peachy Pink Without Flash (L) and With Flash (R)

When I first decided to purchase Barry M Lip Paint in Peachy Pink (around $8 or 350php from The Makeup Haul), what made it an instant buy were the lip swatches I found online. The pink was just the perfect pink, which was very natural and wearable. However, when I tried it on for myself, I noticed that Barry M Lip Paints were too drying, too m...

Movie : Dark Shadows

Tim Burton movie

Last Tuesday, I watched the movie Dark Shadows with a couple of friends. It’s the only thing remotely interesting in the movies showing that day. Knowing that Johnny Depp has always worked his magic on screen piqued our interest to see this movie for ourselves. With our tickets on hand, we headed for the cinemas, and to our surprise, a long line of senior citizens were waiting for their turn to enter the cinema...

My Best Friend’s Wedding

I wish I could write something that would show you guys how sincerely happy I am, recalling the big day of my best friend, and the happiness that she radiated when she was with her husband, with everyone she loves celebrating with her. I’ll try, but it’s not going to be easy.

Standing at the doors of the Immaculate Conception Cathedral with the rest of the entourage, I was calm and my emotions were at bay...

When I first saw Kabab restaurants around the metro, I found that for some reason, I wouldn’t dare go near them. I couldn’t really pinpoint why. I’m glad though, that I allowed myself to be dragged into Mister Kabab at UP Ayala Land Technohub by le boyfriend, else I’d never know how delicious this Persian delicacy is.

Location: UP Ayala Land Technohub, 2nd floor of the area with the food chains and restaurants (Idon’t know what it’s called, sorry!).

Ambiance: I love the interiors of the place...

My Best Friend’s Bridal Shower

Not very many people choose to marry at the age of 22. So when my best friend told me, and everyone else, last year that she’s getting married to her long-time boyfriend, it came as a complete shock. I kept thinking about how I’d never do that, how I’ll never get hitched at such a young age, and the idea was difficult for me to accept, let alone believe. Nevertheless, I showered my friend constant support with her decision.

It was a few weeks to go before the wedding when I decided to let my tho...
