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?

Forgive The Intoxication

29 Aug

So remember me being guilty because of ignoring my friends for a couple of weeks now? Well, I couldn’t bear it any longer so I decided to take them up on their offer tonight. To be more specific, last night.

I went out with some of my girlfriends along with their friends all the way from Cebu. They wanted to tour their college friends around our hometown and as the accommodating hosts that we are, we obliged. So I went to the hotspot in our city at around 11. One thing you should also know about me is that I am never punctual, despite what the trophy of the pageant I joined way, way back says.

I am always the last one to arrive at any social gathering and almost the first one to leave. In birthday parties, the celebrant even arrives before me. And in weddings, well, let’s just say that when I arrive, people are already in queue for dinner. It’s not that my parents are super strict (which they are, but I somehow find ways to manage them,) but it’s something I have learned from Paris Hilton when I was young. She said something about arriving late and being the first to leave at a party/gathering. Which is what I exactly did a few hours ago.

I enjoy drinking just as much every one of my friends but, there has to be a limit. You see, I drive myself home. Yes, even though the places we go to are within walking distance of my house, I still drive because I’m lazy. Plus, it’s really, really, scary to commute at two in the morning.

I was really grateful to my brother’s friend who mans the bar because he takes good care of me and my friends. He notices when I’m already buzzed because he then slips me water to clear my head. And, he slips me free drinks as well. 🙂 Plus, he opened the bar a few hours longer than they normally do just to accommodate us. He’s such an angel.

Anyway, I’m writing this now in bed, extremely buzzed and deaf with the beat of the songs still pounding, so please excuse all the typos and whatnot. I just really wanted my blog to be as up-to-date as possible.

By the by, after talking with my new acquaintances, I’m persuaded into attending the Sinulog festival on January of 2013 in Cebu. They just make it sound like so much fun! Are any of you going as well? Please leave me tips and feel free to comment.

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.
