Miles Away

             I have finally watched Going the Distance film after a few days leaving the dvd in the clutter of my bedroom. I wanted to have a good laugh after a really tough day at work. So I fixed myself a little snack and sat comfortably on my fabric conditioner-scented bed as the dvd commenced to play in my laptop. 
           I find it really funny as I found myself CRYING instead of LAUGHING. I just can't help myself. I thought the movie was portraying my life. It felt so real and I was deeply sympathizing with the female character and the male character as well. Hands down to Drew Barrymore who was really awesome by just being her best on the film. Plus Justin Long was really a cutie.. . ;) 
              Anyhow, I just felt relieved on the thought I am not only the one who feels like shit enduring the complexities and challenges of a long distance relationship. It's been three long years and counting now and trust me, it's never an easy feat. Circumstances may not effortlessly allow us to become near each other but with patience, constant communication and trust we definitely reached this far and we have still got a long way to go. I am just divinely blessed to be with such an amazing partner who literally does almost everything for me, who understands my soul, who's vast stretch of patience willingly extends more and who submissively deals with an undeniably despicable me.. .
               What I am praying for almost everyday now is I hope we would get the chance to really be together like physically. To live a normal love life. And whenever I feel like seeing him or vice versa, we'd get to attain it in the most convenient way possible without having to cross the ocean for once.

my latest music discovery
 truly a ravishing tune in my eardrums
just cant' help but love them!♥

Awkward Beauties

I have always been a huge fan of the renowned reality television show, America's Next Top Model for seven years now and I try to make it a point not to miss every cycle's episodes. There was a cycle though that I intentionally skipped watching because all  my favorite girls got eliminated and I just lost interest. Anyhow, I just wanted to share some of my preferred charmers that turned out to be the bunch's awkward beauties. It upsets me though they never get to attain first place (except Nicole Fox of cycle 13) and the judges always convince they 'lack personality'. The hell with lacking personality, their photos are screaming attitude and fierceness!!!

Cycle 2: Shandi Sullivan 

was born on April 2, 1982 in Kansas City, Missouri. She used to be a Walgreens Pharmacy clerk, but left the job in order to pursue a modeling career in New York City. Her luck in the Big Apple was quite good, as she was able to balance working as a DJ and taking on small modeling jobs. Although she had a tough time growing up, having gotten involved with drugs and burglary, Shandi never gave up on her dreams and in 2003, she auditioned for America’s Next Top Model, Cycle 2.   

Cycle 9: Heather Kuzmich

is an art student and American fashion model. She currently lives in ChicagoIllinois where she is studying video game design. She is best known for being a contestant of America's Next Top Model, Cycle 9, where she was the fourth runner-up of the show. During the show, it was revealed that Kuzmich has Asperger syndrome and ADHD

Cycle 10: Anya Kop/ Rezova

is a fashion model. Born in Russia, Rozova is a naturalized U.S. citizen who was raised in Hawai'i by adoptive parents. Under the name Anya Kop, Rozova was the runner-up of the tenth cycle of America's Next Top Model

Cycle 12: Allison Harvard

Allison has signed with Nous Models Management in Los Angeles. Since America's Next Top Model, Harvard has modeled for She has made an internet videos with fourfour entitled "Fake Blood" and an "interview" with cat Winston. Her connection with 4chan and America's Next Top Model also made her the subject her own Know Your Memeepisode.

Cycle 13: Nicole Fox (my favorite!!! yey!)

As the winner of America's Next Top Model, Fox received a six page spread in Seventeen Magazine, and an ad for Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara. Fox has also modeled for Illiterate Magazine, in which she had a spread, and been featured on, More magazine and in OK! Magazine. Fox was featured in Wild Fox Couture's 2010 fall collection lookbook along with models Rachel Ballinger and Daria Plyushko, as well as in on-line ads for Spirit Hoods and in a campaign for Heritage 1981's Spring 2010 collection—which is a sister brand ofForever 21, and ads for Steve Madden Spring Collection. She will be in the campaign for Nicole Richie's "House of Harlow 1960 Spring 2011" fashion line. In January 2010, a news story circulated reporting that Fox would be the face of Alexander McQueen's new spring/summer collection, but this rumor was revealed to be false and has been debunked by both McQueen and Fox.

Cycle 15: Ann Ward

19 year old, towering 6'2" in height landed in final two along with Chelsey in cycle 15 America's Next Top Model. She's my bet since episode one and I hope she'll nail it. It would be really awesome if she'll grace the cover of Vogue Italia next season!!!  

  Wanna be on Top?

Can't wait for the last episode of Cycle 15! ;)

Pre-Holiday Splurge

  HELP! This is a financial emergency! I vowed to myself these days not to splurge on clothing and accessories. I need to control until December because I have a lot of monetary obligations by that time. However, as you can see, I have not been keeping my promises. I mean, who can not resist these. ..  

One day off after attending to my errands I decided to venture out to Cebu's Manhattan. Yes, that's right, in Colon to find some cheap finds. I figured I needed chunky jewelry to spice up my typical ensembles. Aren't they adorable ?? and I got them all for less than 200 pesos only!!!! Mwahahahaha!!!. ... ..

Oh yes. This is my latest purchase. Like, I got them earlier today. My original plan was just to scout on potential buys for myself this holiday season. Then I stumbled upon these tan pair. I have been searching for one like these for a long time already hoping to find affordable ones. And this is it!!! Mwahahha!!!! When I tried them on eagerly they just felt right. I'm so happy I didn't get to spend a 2 weeks' payroll on these charming good deals. ;);) 

I still have a long list of must-buys for me though because a girl can never have enough clothes! ehehe. ..

Can't wait for Christmas!!! ;) ;)

Eat. I don't starve myself. Delete. I NEVER starve myself. For Christ's sake why do you keep on convincing yourselves that I do not take tremendous care of me? I eat a lot, you know. I could even eat you alive if I haven't consumed food for a month. I'm just sick of people trying to prove me an irresponsible individual. Stop staring at me. 

Pray. Every once in a while I think about God. Second moments to be exact. Good thing there are anticipated Eucharistic celebrations on Saturdays I get to hear mass. Because of that, second moments turn into minutes but then I get drowsy. Oops. I swear, I really do think about God. But do I really need to talk to him when in fact he already knows what's in my mind?

Love.  A delightful cup of frozen yogurt topped with blueberries and kiwi. A good book you can't hardly put down. Hot chocolate and Jack Johnson full blast on rainy days. You on my mind first thing in the morning. Stolen kisses suspended on air. Bouquet of flowers on hand at work after a huge fight. Boisterous and crazy laughter of them genes. Planning to purchase the little boxer a 3 wheel bike. Skinny dipping and star gazing with them ladies. ..  Love is. ;)
