On The Road towards Kristen

15 Sep

Make no mistake, I have never understood all the fuss about Kristen Stewart. I always found her beauty quite plain. Not unattractive, but rather subdued. And when it comes to her acting.. Err, let’s just say that she has mastered her signature performance. 🙂

But yesterday, I came across this picture of her while trolling the blogosphere:

Boy did she sizzle on the red carpet of the New York Premiere of her On The Road movie! Now I’m starting to see what other people see in her. She is ho-o-ot! The make up, the outfit and the pose just works perfectly on her!

Just curious, is she wearing Rob’s trousers and white button down? Still trying to win him back, eh? May the odds be ever in your favor, hun.

Side note: So I guess it’s true then, what they say; that girls get prettier after breakups. Agree?

Diane’s Selection: An Online Shopping Special

16 May

My friends and I were supposed to go out tonight but being the lazy bums that we are, we decided to cancel on each other. Heehee.

Hence, I have hours of free time. I decided to go on the internet. Being the loco shopaholic that I am, I ended up online shopping. Yes, online shopping, again. Shoes, bags, cosmetics, even puppies, for god’s sake.

Right now, I have one, two, three, four, five…. forty-three tabs open. Forty three.

FORTY. THREE.

Forty three tabs of shoes, cosmetics, clothes, bags and puppies that I all want. And I’ve already closed dozens of tabs that I deemed unfit. So that’s like the things that already went through Charles Darwin’s Natural Selection. Well, in this case, Diane’s Selection.

I mean come on. When you go online shopping, there must be a limit of acceptable things that are in the ‘want pile.’ Right? And I highly doubt forty-three is acceptable. So, as much as I regret to say this, I must cut back with this habit of mine. I mean for the past two weeks alone, I’ve already bought (for my discretion, and because you all might think I’m as crazy shopaholic as Rebecca Bloomwood, ) let’s just say that she’s a much bigger shopaholic than I am. And I’m not even close to becoming her. So relax, okay?

It’s just hard to shop for decent things in Tacloban. If there are decent enough things, emphasis on the if, it’s not worth buying anymore because everybody will have them. Equals, mainstream. And I am not in the mood to be on the ‘Who wore it better?’ section of the gossip. That’s why I just buy them all online or when I travel.

Yes, I know. Those were just rationalizations trying to justify my behavior. Nevertheless, I seriously am going to try cutting back.

Between my monstrous eating habits and going out with my friends, my allowance can’t really sustain the additional shopping expenses anymore. Well it could, but that would mean I’m just going to have to survive  eating a biscuit every meal. And that, I surely cannot survive.

I can’t just cut myself off right away though. I’m afraid that if I do that I might go into withdrawal. Yes, I am seriously comparing this to addiction.

Therefore, I am going to limit myself to the maximum of TWO purchases in a month. Yes, that is cutting back in my standards.

But then again that’s another rationalization.

Boracay Baby, A Lookbook and Chictopia Post

10 May

Oh how I miss my summer spent in heaven (aka Boracay.)

I’ve been so busy with my internship that I don’t even have time to go to the beach. Boooo!

Good thing is that I got to bring home a piece of Boracay with me: tons of pictures! And of course, wonderful easy, breezy, memories!


Rockwell Bazaar Hat. Aldo Sunnies. Willy’s Hotel welcoming shell necklace. Oxygen bodysuit.         Zara cardigan. Forever 21 belt. Topshop shorts, Frollic flats.

PS:   My first post in lookbook and comeback post in chictopia. Yey!

PPS: Don’t forget to hype this look on lookbook and chictopia!

Welcome to Lookbook.nu!

9 May

So guess what guys (or not, I’m still going to blog about it regardless of your response, anyway.) I’ve signed up at Lookbook.nu!

For those who’s asking what it is, it’s basically a fashion site wherein you post pictures of yourself with your award-winning ensemble and tell people where you got it. Then you hype each other’s looks and comment about them. Plus you can be ‘fans’ of your favorite lookbookers.

So it’s basically like Chictopia, only more popular. Oh and that reminds me. I have a chictopia account as well! Well, I’ve had it for over a year now and haven’t posted anything new almost as long as that. Heehee.

But be forewarned, I don’t plan on being active on both fashion blogs. Mainly because I can’t be bothered to take a decent full-body shot of myself. Chos. But really, I don’t want to burden you guys with the messy background of my cluttered things scattered expertly in my room.

So why put the badges here, then? It’s because I love the badge of lookbook! It’s so artsy and chic!

It is, right? You better be nodding your head like crazy right about now.

If you want to check both of my profiles, I’ve added widgets to my blog because I love you all so much (and I know you people are lazy bums like me to make the effort of copying and pasting the urls. Uyy, aminin!)

Don’t forget to check them out! The badges/widgets/links can be found at the right portion. Like there —->

Well, of course, you have to scroll down first, dummy. Send me some love, okay?

xoxo,
