Kisses Make Me Happy.

I am currently reading "Eleanor & Park" by Rainbow Rowell and this outfit is a bit of a tribute to its awesomeness: the feelings of first kisses that you don't want to end, the great music of the 80's, and the old schoolness of walkmans and boomboxes. I hope you like it. :)

Honestly speaking, there are very few things in this world that make me grinning-to-my-ears-until-I-look-stupid happy: Family Mart green tea twirls, witnessing Josue fanboy over NBA players, hearing Syrena mindlessly singing Incubus songs, having genuinely geeky conversations, and kissing. Boy, do I love kissing!

I would instantly give up green tea twirls, Starbucks and all of my shoes if it meant getting a really good kiss every day. Seriously.

Bring a tight hug into the mix and BOOM. I melt.

One of the best things that I love about "Eleanor & Park" is how much I can relate to the music in the book, the struggles of running out of batteries in a walkman and the cute yet cannibalistic feelings that Eleanor feels whenever she sees Park.

Here's one of my favorite snippets from the book:

Don't bite his face, Eleanor told herself. It's disturbing and needy and never happens on situation comedies or movies that end with big kisses.
I'm sorry about yesterday, she said.
He hung onto his straps and shrugged. "Yesterday happens."
God, it's like he wanted her to eat his face clean off.

Although I haven't finished reading the book yet, it's safe to say that I am loving it so far. I love how simple it is yet has the power to make me feel giddy, happy and understood at the same time, what with its quotable quotes and music and movie references - things that a lot of people, especially young adults in this generation, might not full understand or appreciate without a brief pop culture history lesson anyway. Lol.

Overall, if "Eleanor & Park" were a guy, it would be the perfect boyfriend for me. On that note, I really hope I like the ending. It's one thing not to have relationships work out; but to have books not work out? That's even worse.

MrCostumes - My Top 3 Costume Choices for Halloween 2014

O. M. G. Halloween is just a few months away. Are you ready this time? I don't know about you, but one of my major pet peeves is not being ready for Halloween when the time comes, i.e. not having the perfect costume for the most fun holiday in the world!!!

There was this one time when I ordered a Halloween costume and it arrived 6 days after Halloween. I was this close to throwing a belated Halloween party just to be able to wear my costume. Lol. True story. So, this year, I've decided to get ready as soon as now and one of the best costume sites that I've seen to date for my personal Halloween costume needs is MrCostumes.

MrCostumes has a very wide selection of fun Halloween costumes for both adults and kids, perfect for me and my mini-me. In case you didn't know, Syrena and I dress in tandem every Halloween coz that's just the kind of uncool mom that I am. :p

Naturally, my first choice for this Halloween would be our favorite superheroes!

Syrena happens to be a huge Spider-Man fan and what kind of mom would I be to tell her that Spider-Man is actually, well, a man? She can go as Spider-Kid and I can go as… Wonder Woman, of course!

Since I super loved the movie "Maleficent", my second choice would be Princess Aurora and Maleficent!

The best part about the Princess Aurora costume is that it can be used for other children's princess parties (of which I am learning there are a lot of during the year) and can even be revamped into a Game of Thrones character costume in case Syrena ever gets into the Westeros world by next year. (Fingers crossed!)

My last choice would be: Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper!

Why? Aside from our mutual love for Star Wars, I absolutely love these female costume versions that MrCostumes has to offer. I've never seen such cute female versions of Darth Vader or Stormtroopers before and would love to strut our stuff together looking like this. Don't you just adore them? <3 A much better choice compared to the usual Han and Leia costumes that I can never pull off coz I'm never sexy enough to come Halloween. :p

Not too keen on shopping online or internationally? Then check out Skitzo Manila for potential Halloween costumes that you can get locally instead.

So… What are you dressing up as this Halloween 2014? :) Are you ready?
