Disconnect: Tavi Gevinson


I remember mentioning a couple of years during my blog's beginnings that I wasn't a huge fan of Tavi Gevinson. Not that I hated her. In fact it was the opposite, I find her work admirable. I just wasn't checking out her website everyday to read every single post.

But it is undeniable the success she has achieved since she started her blog, Style Rookie. She has also come a very long way since her granny chic days. I love how she has finally developed her own style and in turn, changed her focus from fashion to pop culture and feminism.

Happiness: Chuck Grant


Cool girl Chuck Grant is slowly gaining prominence in the world wide web as an up and coming photographer. The almost 25 year old is Lana del Rey's little sister and just like her big sis, she dabbled into a bit of modeling on the side. 

For Nylon, Chuck Grant takes front and center stage as Lana Del Rey snaps and interviews her little sister.

Happiness: Lipstick Collection 2


Oh hi!

I know I have been MIA for the most of September and I'm really sorry. September is always crazy, short and busy for me. It's my birthday month, first and foremost and I guess it's a transition month for the most part. I can't seem to pinpoint the exact reason why I am unable to post on this month. I'm just so busy. I thought that I would be able to squeeze in some time to do some scheduled posts but I wasn't able to. I am on my second week of holiday from work. Initially, I signed up for extra work hours but apparently, they decided to cancel my class so I'm free for another week. So I decided to work on my blog for this week before I get back to work.

Another reason for me not being able to post is that I've always been in some sort of a block for the past few months. I think I have an idea why I'm stuck and I am trying to work my way around it. I have been working on this post for a couple of months now and I'm finally getting my way around posting my second lipstick collection; and don't forget to check out my first collection here.

Happiness: I Wanna Go


Spontaneity is not my cup of tea. I just like having a grasp on things, knowing where we are going, what we are doing. I just feel much more prepared knowing, expecting, envisioning. But every once in a while, I find myself thrust into opportune moments such as these where I have no control over time and places and emotions and whatnots.

Sometimes, I get agitated. I crumble and feel the unknown capsize me. But then when I let it all go, I float aimlessly.

Happiness: The Dispensary


Last week, Tree and I wanted to have some Korean at Big Mama's. Unfortunately, you have to get reservations and we didn't have any. Hungry and about to get angry, I remembered seeing a cafe called The Dispensary a couple blocks nearby that we both have never tried.

Disconnect: The Evolution of Michael Jackson


Happy Birthday, Michael Jackson!

It has been five years since the King of Pop passed away. It is still a bit surreal. I remember watching him as a young kid back in the early 90's. He was definitely one of the most influential icons that has shaped pop culture.

Happiness: Plain Vanilla


It has been a while since I made an effort to put up and outfit. I have been so busy with work for the past few years that I realize how I have neglected my well-being. Last week, I looked at my closet and wondered to myself, I use to dress up pretty fancy. I still have the same clothes but how come I resort to band shirts and ripped jeans?

Happiness: Charles and Keith, Listen Up!


If anyone from Charles and Keith is reading this blog, all I want to say is: You're welcome.

About two weeks ago, I passed by Charles and Keith and saw what I thought was the prettiest shoes I have ever seen at the moment. I love good shoes and is known to have her Carrie Bradshaw moments. So when I saw this Lucite heeled pumps, I was just smitten.

Disconnect: W Magazine August 2014


Found this super cool spread of supermodels in W Magazine. It's absolutely strange because it is captioned: "Super normal super models" and sort of connotes that these supermodels are just like us.

Hahaha!

They're nothing like us. Sure, they're people, too. But to say that they're like average people is like telling me that I can go to the sun. It's not possible and it's not truthful. Anyway, caption and text aside, I really like this editorial. It features every one from Kate Moss to Daria Werbowy, dressed like they're in some supermodel bootcamp or school. Pretty cool.
