Jump Over the Moon for Me.

Tonight, after I got home from the Heineken party (more on that soon!), I looked in the mirror and for the first time in a long time - now, I don't mean to sound cocky here, but - I thought, "Hey, I look pretty tonight." And this is important because I never considered myself as pretty or even remotely good-looking.

It was a strange thought and I caught myself off-guard. Maybe it was the unlimited Heineken beers that I had, but I actually stared at myself for a good long while and it felt like I didn't even know who the person in the mirror was. (Wow. So deep!)

And then I realised that the reason why I was caught so off-guard was because I hadn't heard anyone genuinely compliment me in the longest time.


After that realisation, I jumped into bed and that's when I wondered what the fuck I was on. Tonight alone, 3 different people complimented me - on my hair, my weight and my 'new aura' - and to all of those compliments, I simply rolled my eyes, scoffed at them and brushed them aside like they were lies.

When did I become such a histrionic pessimist?


And that's when I realised I've been such a hypocrite lately. I've been complaining about being taken for granted when I have been taking so many people and so many words for granted myself. All of the words that Prince said to me last week suddenly hit me hard.

There he was, trying to help me move on, telling me how great I am, reminding me how people would jump over the moon for me, and pointing out that I knew exactly what I needed to do but just wasn't doing it… and all I did was fail to listen to everything that he was saying.


I guess it's true how they say that the more you hang out with a person, the more like them you become. As such, selfishness begot selfishness; douchebaggery begot douchebaggery; and so on and so forth.

I apologise to everyone I bothered with my 'lovelife' problems: for wasting your time, for whining non-stop without even asking how you were doing, and for being the worst version of me I could possibly be.

This all ends now, though. If someone blocks you on social media without even thinking twice, you were probably worthless to them from the beginning. If someone refuses to fight for you when you offer to walk away to make them happy, you're much better off just walking away.


So, that's exactly what I'm going to do: I'm going to walk away. I'm going to get everything back and block him from my phone and from my life. Because I now know that I deserved much better than what I went through and I deserve much better now.

I've done my part. I've given everything I could possibly give (and more) and I've done everything I could possibly do to make him happy. But since that isn't enough for him; then heck, Imma find someone who'll actually appreciate every lil thing I do, who'd actually jump over the moon for me, and who actually likes me for me - geekiness, weird ears, crazy mood swings and all. :)

Here's to finding peace of mind… finally.

Philippine Fashion Week 2014: Forever 21 is Back!

Philippine Fashion Week 2014: Forever 21 is Back!


Philippine Fashion Week is something that every woman in Manila looks forward to. After all, new trends, new friends and a whole lot of fun are things that one can always look forward to during this fashion-filled week.

I am especially excited for this Friday, though, because Forever 21 - one of my forever-favorite stores (I've blogged about them several times - see links below) - is joining Philippine Fashion Week this October 24 at SMX Convention Center.

I'm not just excited to see Forever 21's latest collections for women, either, but also that for men (for my best bud) and for girls (for my mini-me). I can't wait - especially because this is the first time Forever 21 will be on the catwalks of Philippine Fashion Week since 2011. Will I see you there? :)

adidas X Italia Independent ZX FLUX Designs: Fun Designs for Sporty Women

It is no secret that I have always been an adidas girl. In fact, my current adidas shoe collection is growing faster and faster by the month… but come on, you can't really blame me if they keep coming up with stunning new designs for sporty women to go gaga over! Right?

Just now, they have released yet another unconventional, fun and truly original collection in partnership with accessories brand Italia Independent.

I love my ZX Flux pair, but these new ZX Flux packs are something else!

Animal Print ZX Flux from the Print Pack

This is my ultimate favorite from the new line of adidas ZX Flux designs!!! The animal print isn't exactly new to the ZX Flux, but I absolutely LOVE how this design is rave-inspired with the rainbow upper and bright pink heel cage and midsole. I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!!!
Zebra Print ZX Flux from the Print Pack

This eye-catching print pays homage to Italy by adding the Italian flag colours on the signature 3-Stripes mark of adidas. Very cute, but since I personally don't really have any strong ties to Italy, I'm not going too crazy in terms of wanting to own this one.
Classic Camo ZX Flux from the Print Pack

Now that "The Walking Dead" is back on the small screen, I must say that these are on my must-have list, as well. The big problem merely lies in which colorway to get: khaki tones for a Maggie Greene feel or blue and black tones for a Lori Grimes feel? :p I also love how the uppers of these prints are satin-like, but not enough to overpower the bad-ass feel of the shoes.

Italia Independent ZX Flux NPS Pack

Inspired by the carbon fiber usually found in luxury cars, planes and yachts, the NPS Pack may be more up your alley if you're more of a lover of the classics. Available in two colorways: grey and navy.
