I Can't

It's been ages since the last time we've seen each other. To be honest, I actually plan to shut down our communication for good. To end the string that attached us since the first day I learned about you. To consider you as part of my past. To let go and simply move on.

But I can't. I simply CAN'T. You are too much of a treasure to throw away. You are the extension of my thoughts since 2005. And by next month, April 2010, we will be celebrating our anniversary. We should be right?

You are the witness to all my emotions. You know how it was and how it is about me. You know me too well and has been so good to me. Standing beside me. Patiently waiting for me to come to you. Eagerly listening to all my sentiments, my nonsense blah blahs and demented thoughts. You are so trusty worthy to help me conceal from my real pain and sorrows. But was so proud for every milestone, every joyful moment I had. Shouting to the world my accomplishments or simple joys.

I was a fool once when I attempted to replace you. I admit, I found you boring that's why I looked around and consider others. You had your days when you were totally hard to manage. But I guess that's not a valid reason for me to ignore you.
I was entertained by what others offered. I even stay awake so late at night just to be with them. But i realized, i still need you.

I will be totally insane to let you go.

No!!! I don't have the guts to close our relationship. Nor do i have the courage to see you go just like that. I will stay. I will still come back to you no matter what.
You may not see or hear from me often but believe me, I am just around the corner. Busy on whatever it is that eats me. I am and forever will be there just like the old times.

I promise to write you as long as I can. Until my fingers ache because of old age. Or until internet life is ticking.

We are one. You and me.....Me and my blogspot.

I'm serious!

...I've been wanting to have a pair of these since Hmmmm.....can't remember. Hahaha.
But seriously, I love them. So cute and trendy and very stylish. Aarrrgggghhhhh.......If only i have the extra cash to shell out just for these... :-(

I'm thinking of compelling reason why I need to spend 60 USD + shipping fee for these! Really really thinking about this. I'm a shoe fetish. No doubt about it. But being a shoe fetish that I am does not have to be a big spender on shoes noh! I believe I still have the control of buying. Well at least once a month. :P hehehe.

*Deep sigh*
I really really wanted to have one of these from Pluey's. I hope my Santa will include this on his list. *wishful thinking*

Well, guess what? I found these at Landmark for only Php 300. Pwede na!
These will suffice while Santa is still convincing himself to grant my wish. Hehehe.


Got her last Saturday, July 11.
Need to say goodbye to my Merrelle. She's been with me for hmmmm......almost 6 years??!!! Hmmmm...yeah, I think. ^__^ hahaha. That one has served my feet well.

Well, Now i'm taking new steps with these:

Hihihi.BTW, special thanks to my h2b. ^__^
Hon, can i get those Pluey wellies too? Huh? hah? Ha? Pleassszzzzzeeeeee!!! *wink*

Top 10 beauty tips for brides

(i guess it's time for the h2b to contribute something about wedding stuffs... )

IN the past, as full-time beauty editor, I took on hair and makeup jobs on the side to supplement my magazine income. I worked on advertising shoots, music videos and weddings during my free time.

Weddings proved to be the most challenging of them all. I never knew what to expect. But at the same time, working the bridal circuit taught me many things, and the experience is currently helping me put together my own nuptials.

I caught up with two other makeup artist friends to exchange ideas on the dos and don’ts when it comes to one’s big day, and essentially gather tips on how to look one’s best (and most photogenic) on the event that took months to prepare.

Their answers were both hilarious and helpful. I am only too happy to share them with you.

10. “Do not sleep later than 12 midnight even if your wedding is after lunch,” says Barbi Chan, chief makeup artist at Maybelline New York, who has worked with more than 300 brides. “Trust me, it shows, [and] it’s so hard to conceal swollen and tired eyes!”

9. Steer clear of foundation that contains titanium dioxide (a common sunscreen ingredient), as it turns white in pictures. This only emphasizes the importance of making it to your trial makeup session and reviewing the photographs. On that note, “Do not be late or miss your appointment,” says Mayone Bakunawa, a former Estée Lauder guest makeup artist who has been doing makeup for five years now. “If you have to [cancel], inform way ahead of time [as a] courtesy to the makeup artist and her other clients.”

8. Avoid any medical or dermatological treatments like facials, waxing or threading at least a week before the wedding, and never ever the day before. “No amount of makeup can cover burnt skin or an infected pimple,” explains Chan.

7. “Do not drastically change your hair color,” warns Bakunawa. “Asian hair has a lot of copper undertones so if you’re going for a light brown shade, you’d have to bleach first.” Bakunawa recommends going to a reputable salon or a professional stylist. “It will be worth it, otherwise you might end up with orange hair.”

6. Don’t treat your suppliers like hired help. Your makeup artist, hair stylist, photographer and everybody else are there to make sure you look your best, and they deserve to be treated with respect. Treat them right and you’ll be rewarded with a well-made-up face, great hair and amazing pictures (even, possibly, lasting friendships).

5. Avoid unrealistic expectations, at least from the hair and makeup team. “Do not expect us to be magicians or surgeons,” says Bakunawa. “Granted, we will do everything we can in our power to make you the most beautiful you, but you’ll still look like yourself.” So brides, take note: no asking for ‘nose lines’ please!

4. “Do not neglect skin care and ‘leave it up to the makeup artist,’” shares Bakunawa. Chan agrees, having advised many women in the past to take care of their complexions. “Clear, blemish-free skin is the perfect canvas for makeup to go on,” she says. Besides, if your skin is in great shape, you won’t need that much makeup.

3. Try not to stress about the small things. “Brides should learn the art of letting go,” says Chan. “As long as you have your photographer, makeup, gown, and of course, groom, then everything else can fall apart and you will still be the most beautiful bride. Let go and everything will be alright.”

Says Bakunawa: “Stress will manifest in different ways, such as hair loss, dry skin, breakouts, rashes, you name it. And it shows in pictures.”

2. “Your wedding day is just one day, do not expend all your energy and be drained afterwards,” urges Chan. She also encourages couples to focus on the pending marriage itself, and not just get caught up in the preparations. “Planning a wedding is easy, getting married is not. So make sure that you are sure about it—no doubts, no hesitations, because we are talking about spending the rest of your life with this person.”

1. Don’t forget to feed your suppliers. “Do not assume that while we work in the fashion and beauty industry, we do not eat,” expresses Bakunawa. And Chan shares the same sentiment: “Even if it’s just a simple mamon [small butter cake], it really helps a lot!”
