A friend sent me this note in facebook =)


In the life of every single woman, occasionally a brief, or sometimes extended, hiatus from singledom will occur. This phenomenon is commonly known as a “relationship.” Yes, for one, brief, shining moment, our Prince Charming gallops into our lives and into our hearts on his brilliant white horse and we just know that all is right with the world and that our Happily Ever After has officially begun.
But then, inevitably, your world comes crashing down when you discover that the horse he's been riding is on loan, the castle he lives in is really a house of cards, and the words he's been whispering in your ear were from someone else's script. Yes, you have fallen victim to the Prince Charming imposter, also known as a “frog in Prince Charming’s clothing.” Weary from the game, losing faith in fairytales, you hang up your glass slippers and vow “Never again!” before descending into a heap of flannel pajama-clad, tear-stained, Ben and Jerry-eating hopelessness - a dark cloud from which you are certain you will never emerge.
Here’s the key to unlocking yourself from the chains of misery that ensnare you after a failed relationship: this unfortunate turn of events not only doesn’t have to define you, but your response to it can (and will!) change your life for the better – if you are open, willing, and ready to read between the lines of your past to extract the lessons for your future. Here are some ways to avoid RSVP’ing to your own “Breakup Pity Party:”

1. Allow yourself time to feel the grief and let it wash over you – but take a quick shower in it, not an extended bubblebath. There’s no need to start wearing head-to-toe black and refusing to wash your right hand because that was the last hand that he held. Absolutely allow yourself to be sad, but keep it in perspective. NO wallowing allowed! Sit with your sadness for a little while then show it the door. Sadness is a houseguest similar to that annoying, ever-unemployed friend of yours (you know the one) – it will hang out as long as you let it. Also similar to that friend, it will deplete you of your time, your energy, and your will to be fabulous. And never let anyone take away your fabulous without a fight!

2. Purge the constant reminders from your living environment. You don’t have to hold a “cleansing ceremony” and burn all his belongings a la the infamous Friends episode circa 1995, but if you’re still sleeping in his favorite sweatshirt and spraying yourself with his cologne every night – girl, you gotta let go. Pack up all pictures, clothes, CD’s, stuffed teddy bears…anything that keeps you tied to his memory and store it away somewhere safe. I recommend not throwing it away, because there might come a day when these tokens elicit smiles instead of sadness; but I would also steer clear of a big, dramatic “return the things” meeting with him, also known as “an excuse to see him one last time.” If you tuck everything away in a safe place, you can always go back later when you’re feeling stronger and decide what to do with it without having to stare at it on a daily basis. There really is something to the whole “out of sight, out of mind” theory.

3. Call your girls and tell them to circle the wagons. When your soul is in need of a little chicken soup, there is nothing more comforting than the presence of your soul sisters. Go dancing, go see a movie (a comedy - not a sappy chick flick!), go get a pedicure, consume large amounts of chocolate, and let the warm sunshine of friendship dry your tears. Chances are if you’ve been wrapped up in a serious relationship for the past six months, you might have been neglecting your girl time anyway, so there’s no time like the present to reestablish those bonds of sisterhood! After all, as Carrie Bradshaw once said: “No matter who broke your heart, or how long it takes to heal, you'll never get through it without your friends.”

4. Absolutely no stalking allowed! Step away from the Facebook, the Myspace, the Twitter, the Google, or any other mechanism you might be using to track his every move. In fact, delete him from your social networking circle all together – at least for the time being. You cannot move on from someone by staying glued to your computer screen for fear he might be moving on from you. Let go. Breathe. When you’re feeling tempted to call him, call a friend instead. When you’re feeling tempted to drive by his house to see if he’s home (Yes, we’ve all been there. And if you say you haven’t, remember that Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt), drive to Starbucks or the gym or the bookstore instead. Once the relationship’s over, it’s over, and revisiting it in the form of a restraining order is not exactly going to bring you closure. Besides – you’re too classy and sassy for that kind of behavior! True divas refuse to lower themselves to chasing a man through cyberspace (or anywhere else, for that matter).

5. Get reacquainted with YOU. What have you been putting on the back burner while you’ve been fanning the flames of love? Get back in touch with YOUR passions, YOUR dreams, YOUR goals. Start a new hobby. Pursue a new interest. Try yoga. Join a book club. Volunteer. Do something to contribute to the greater good of the world and the greater good of your soul and before you know it – you’ll be smiling again. Focus all the energy you’ve been focusing on him on something you’re passionate about, and the Universe will start rolling out the red carpet for you. Amazing, unbelievably good things start to happen when you follow your gut, your truth, your passions…your heart. Isn’t our heart always more reliable than GPS, anyway?
At the end of the day, in the words of Greg Behrendt, “It’s called a breakup because it’s broken.” (Great breakup book, by the way. Buy it!) God and the Universe clearly saw that the man behind the curtain wasn’t the man for you and steered you back onto the Yellow Brick Road to L-O-V-E. Someday soon, you might even look up and say “Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore." Because wouldn’t you much rather surrender your life to the hands of God and fate (and the occasional tornado!) and have wonderful, Oz-like adventures with fabulous new friends and a life in color...all the while while risking the occasional encounter with some grumpy trees and some overly grabby flying monkeys...than spend a lifetime in black and white?

BUT SOAWESOME party. We love you den den! =) 
...Waiting for more photos. lol 



FIERCE VIKTOR AND ROLF!! I was browsing some gowns for inspiration and look what I feel into! These are Viktor and Rolf's spring 2010 runway. Very haute couture cut-out and the cake-ish silhouettes gives us this fashion-induced chills. So futuristic! Well done, Katy Perry also wore the first one here, left side. The red one that seemed like its been shot by a big bullet. LOL


I've been gone for too long! My life is getting boring. I need to do somethinggg!! Seriously, Its nothing exciting to talk about. Psshh! Although I have been out, like.. Everyday. Still, nothing interesting. HAHA LOL. 

Oh, btw, check out my photographer, http://joelfrancisco.com.ph/ We're going to shoot my debut pictorial in a few days when I have all my clothes settled. I took out my luggage which contains really old clothes, not really that old maybe last years clothes.. To my surprise, most of them dont fit on me anymore! I gained that much weight and it makes me a lot uglier :( I mean, yeah yeah I know I gained weight. But it really sank into me awhile ago. Fuck. Anyway, his shots are all so awesome and the first thing I told him was make me look thin!! =)) If i cant lose weight in a short time given, then at least make me look thin! =))

I haven't been really feeling good lately :/ A week ago I had sore throat and just when I thought I was getting better, earlier today I got a massive headache and now.. BOO! I am so sickkk. And cause of that, I had to miss my friends birthday celebration at Makati Shangrila. Siiiigh I really had to get sick today, huh? Not just today, but I also have to miss tomorrows cover shoot with Luis. I think the model will be Marian Rivera? I haven't met her yet! My mom finds her pretty and I'd love to work with her. Stupid sickness. 

Haha We had an early dinner tonight, (request by yours truly, i'm doing the before-6 diet starting today) So yeah early dinner, we usually have a lot of yummy food every dinner, all sorts shrimp steak fish vegetables and all those. My dad and brother is a biiiig eater + me! Guess wot, I made my mom proud by skipping everything but vegetables! I'm not a fan of green foods, but hey its healthy! My mom always scold and counsels me every freakin day because im fat. Telling me that when she was 16 or 17, her weight only plays around 90lbs to 100lbs. OH and another thing, My mom and I went to see my seamstress this morning to give out some promising designs for my debut gown and hers as well.. And yes, my waist line from 24 (as she remembers and I dont) to now, I dont even know cause I dont wanna know, Its only gonna break break buh-break break my heart. 

I kinda miss going to photo shoots. I'm so bored. But am too sick to move. Hey, this was my last one. Almost a week ago long!! Imagine my life as a bum. Without these, I don't think I'll be doing anything else besides eating, going to spas, having my nails done, and more eating.. things i can not live with out. Reason why I get fat.
This outfit, although blury, is one of my favorite. Only because: Blazers, shorts and tank top. Got it? So me! Matching it with a 5in heel parisian SM shoes. I never owned one, but after this shoot, I appreciate SM foot wears now =)

Notice how much I mentioned myself being fat?! Boooo cause I am. Haha! I talk too much, I have to stop. You can stop reading too if you find me annoying.. Boo! Get out! Hahaha! Kbyeee! =)


    Its monday! And I woke up at 7am just like school days! Todays shoot was for male under garments. It was really fun, all styling jobs with Luis have been great! He lets us do stuffs and calls us "stylist" the shirt the shirt! At first, we prepared the garments that will be used on the shoot, steam them and stuff.. Then we take turns as to who will fold/take off/clip the shirt on the model. It was very hands on the job. Haha! I dont think I wanna post a photo cause i dont think its going to look good in my blog.. It might seem like a porn site. Lol i'm exaggerating, dont react right away!! Haha! But as soon as the magazine or the ads came out, maybe just may be i will. Since its decent enough to post it =)
    After lunch, a french song was playing, champs elysees. I clearly remember since we sang it in french class but am not sure bout the spelling. Haha! Anyway it was so funny cause Luis was teaching us how to walk on a runway. HAHA! Seriously, we were all laughing pretending to be runway models :)) And ofcourse, he's the main attraction of the show! I love him! =)
    K.. I'm meeting my debut coordinator tomorrow morning and I'm missing tomorrows photo shoot! Such a loser :( I wanna see the shoes that will be used pa naman! Sigh. I wonder how its gonna go tomorrow.. Anyway but yeah, meeting my debut coordinator tomorrow! I'm turning 18 in less than 2 months! I'm half excited. The other half just wanna stay 17.. 

Secret: He was wearing a button down shirt that time.. after ko iclip yung shirt sa likod, I sat down right away.. Eh may guy dun sabi like, claud button mo. So ayun, i buttoned it. Eh hello? ang hot nya mashado diba? Nakakahiya, hindi ko mabutton yung shirt! Hahaha!


Thanks so much to Luis Espiritu for today! Hes also the stylist of KC Conception so as his apprentice, we got the chance to hang around and see the real work of a stylist. From 10:30 am till around 2 or 3 maybe was probably the slowest time ever, haha! Then it was KC's turn to sing her song at ASAP so that was the only time we got to watch the show. But right after her song, we had to get back too. Basically, we were at where KC is. like her little minions. Then it was the buzz, since its her show we got to watch it too :) yiiiiii kbye :P Oh, and we didn't take much photos :) But as soon as I see my friend posts hers, I'll post some too. Hihihi. 
Its kinda blurry, that's Reg, Bianx then me. I think this is the last photo taken while waiting for Luis and KC right after the buzz.
Okay, I suck for taking this picture. But please please look at these ladies shoes, they're so gorg. KC's wearing Fendi! Okay never mind, its not clear enough. I get that. k? Haha!
After the buzz, she got cornered by these medias. haha lol

Walking around in a 4in heels is a no-no. Yay! No more fight outfits for tomorrows shoot! =)
I need a lot of rest, I havent had any sleep yet from last night. Booo! Oh, and I went home not-so-late then my mom kinda got mad at me telling me im not responsible enough to go home on time. Saying I have this thing really early and yet I'm out drinking. Hello mom, teenager here?? :|


Here is a little something from last saturdays photo shoot for Look Magazine

All the clothes that were used were International brands like Marc Jacobs, Bally, Diesel, and much more.. I found out that these clothes were shared by countries in Asia. So these clothes get to travel a lot! Shoot after shoot after shoot. I'm really excited about my apprenticeship! Ohh! and I'm excited for this Sunday! I'm not gonna spoil it so I hope you come back soon on my blog for that. Luis Espiritu warned that its just sitting and waiting because its real work. But that's totally fine! Being there is already enough for me. And actually witness whats it like.. I'm truly excited! =)
Tokyo fashion has always been my interest. I get inspirations from them and try to simplify it. I kinda wish people here in Manila dress up more like them.. Ahihihihi.. I've seen a lot of Japanese in Guam and they never fail to amaze me. One day, I'll visit Japan =) Leather Jacket, Boots, Blazers, Big bags, Blacks, Tights, Exaggerated styles are my style. My designs are more likely to be inspired by Tokyo fashion.. Oh Japan, come to Philippines..

Nick's The Fairly OddParents Comes to Life in First-Ever, Live-Action TV Movie Adaptation, A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner. Centers on Timmy Turner, but unlike the series, Timmy is no longer a 10 year old boy — he is 23, still lives at home and still attends the 5th grade! Timmy's arrested development stems from his desire to keep his beloved fairy godparents, Cosmo (Jason Alexander, Seinfeld, as live-action Cosmo and Daran Norris, The Fairly OddParents, as animated Cosmo) and Wanda (Cheryl Hines, Curb Your Enthusiasm, as live-action Wanda and Susanne Blakeslee, The Fairly OddParents, as animated Wanda), because "Da Rules" dictates that godchildren lose their fairies when they grow up. But when Tootie, (Daniella Monet, Victorious) a formerly nerdy girl who's always had a crush on Timmy, returns to town as a gorgeous grown-up, Timmy finds himself having very adult feelings for her. He must decide whether to grow up and be with the woman he loves, or continue acting like a child to keep the fairy godparents he adores. In the meantime, Hugh J. Magnate (Steven Weber, Wings, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip), a larger than life oil tycoon, turns his attention to capturing Timmy's fairies and using their power to fuel his maniacal ambition.

I have a huuuuuuge crush on Drake Bell ever since Drake and Josh! :">
