Mermaid Wedding Dresses with a Twist at DressV

Mermaid Wedding Dresses with a Twist at DressV

When people think about mermaid wedding dresses, they normally think about tight, sexy and silhouette-hugging pieces such as this one (at least I know I do):

While DressV does have traditional mermaid wedding dresses such as this one, what I love about their selections the most is that they also have mermaid styles available with a twist, as well. Here are some of my favourites:

You can get them in different colours, depending on whether you preferred the Red Wedding or the Purple Wedding of Game of Thrones. :p

Or you can stick with a simple and elegant look while becoming the real belle of every ball with stunning details and sequins with this number:

Although I don't have any plans of getting married soon, I do still thoroughly enjoy seeing what types of dresses are available for brides nowadays. I also enjoy seeing that more and more brides are starting to veer away from the classic and adding new twists to their weddings with dresses like these.

Not looking for wedding dresses at the moment? You may also see their other dress collections at the main site: http://www.dressv.com/ Either way, DressV always provides stunning dresses at great prices!

True Friends are Like Superheroes.

I was clearing out my phone's pictures when I stumbled upon these old photos that Gerd took of me during the start of the year - back when I wasn't as fat or as depressed as I currently am. Lol. See, when I get depressed, I eat my feelings and then I get fat. Yes, this is the reason why I gain an intense amount of weight every now and then.

Things haven't been going well for me, in general. Things are shitty at home. I disappointed someone important to me. The babydaddy is making things difficult once again. I had a falling out with one of my oldest friends. Plus, I recently found out that the guy that I like has a girlfriend. Such is my life.


I also recently realised that I don't have a lot of true friends, in general. What are true friends, in my opinion? The friends who contact you out of nowhere just to ask how you are. The friends who actually find and make time to see you, no matter how busy their schedules are. The friends who really give a genuine shit about you, basically.


Like superheroes, true friends don't ask for anything in return when it comes to favors, either. They help out because they want to.

On the flip side, true friends also appreciate the help that is given to them and are humble and grateful, whether things work out the way they imagined them to or not.


Today, I have decided to no longer waste my time on people who give me conditions or people who don't appreciate my efforts. Instead, I vow to only focus on the ones that matter, grow my bonds with them and let those bonds grow.


Hopefully, by cutting off all of the people who are merely there for convenience or entertainment, I can find it in myself to be happy with my life, stop binge-eating and work on a better and healthier me. Wish me luck!

Austenland: DVD Review and Giveaway

Austenland: DVD Review and Giveaway


If you know me and if you have read any of my movie reviews in the past, you should know I'm not much of a chick flick girl. In fact, I abhor chick flicks and steer clear of them altogether.

While I am also a bookworm, I don't read any romance novels nor have I read a single Jane Austen novel in my life (so far… I'll get on it - I promise!)

So, I really wasn't very excited to watch "Austenland". I hadn't even heard of it before. Since I like the element of surprise, I didn't even read the back of the DVD. All I knew was that Felicity was in it and that it had something to do with Jane Austen novels. Lol.

The premise of "Austenland" was pretty easy to figure out from the beginning. There's this girl who's obsessed with Jane Austen and she spends all of her life savings to go to "Austenland" for the 'ultimate Jane Austen experience'. How chick flick-y could you get?

I found myself rolling my eyes by this point, but fortunately, I find Jennifer Coolidge downright entertaining. So, when she showed up - in full insane pinkified attire, I might add - I figured I'd be able to survive the rest of the movie.

What happened to me after they reached Austenland, however, was intense. I found myself jumping up and down on my bed with a huge grin on my face. I sat up. I inched closer to the TV screen. And I paid so much more attention to the movie, completely ignoring the text messages on my phone and just gushing and gushing and gushing. Why? I'll show you why:

Let me explain: I AM IN LOVE WITH TOM HIDDLESTON. Like, no matter how bad things get in life, show me a meme of Tom Hiddleston and I'll get an instant grin on my face, no matter what.

Well, without my glasses, this guy looked exactly like Tom Hiddleston. In fact, I didn't even realize he wasn't Tom Hiddleston until the end credits rolled. Mega fail on my part, but I don't even care. THEY LOOK ALIKE. COME ON.

I actually plan on watching "Captain America" now coz of him. <3

Anyway, yes, the non-chick-flick-lover that is me ended up loving this movie coz of the eye candy. And, because I want to share this awesome new eye candy discovery and his uber sexy English accent with you, here's a giveaway for a copy of "Austenland" that you can keep and re-watch for yourself. :D 3 winners for this!

Whether you are a fan of chick flicks or not and whether you read Jane Austen novels or not, "Austenland" is definitely an entertaining (and eye candy-filled!!!) watch. It's the kind of movie you can watch over and over again (well, in my case, anyway coz I'm mababaw) and will make you giddy like a lil school girl.

And OMG! Jane Seymour (of "Somewhere in Time" fame) is in it, too - and she's still a beauty after all this time.

I give it 3.5 stars out of 5. :)
