Sears

Since I am a big The Hunger Games Trilogy fan and the movie is about to come out in 15 days, I made my own THG shirt instead of ordering online. I mean some people sell cheap customized THG shirts but the shipping fee makes it expensive. Why spend a lot of dough when you can make your own customized tee?

It’s quite simple. Since I have an extra plain white tee, I cut out letters from an unused polo.

After cutting out the letters, I pinned it on the shirt so it’d be easy. It was hand sewn by the way since I was too afraid to use our sewing machine HAHA! I owe my basic sewing skills to my home economics teachers! HAHAHA

I’ve always been Team Gale. Although I was quite disappointed that Liam Hemsworth’s portraying him. I mean, he was described as “good-looking, strong enough to handle work, and can hunt” but I guess we just have to wait and see. I know he’s a good actor. And ohhh.. I had to post those two similar photos because I can’t decide which filter is nicer 😉

By the way, you can hype this look here.

And since I’ve already started it, I decided to “re-construct” my tees because butterfly sleeves make my arms look bigger 😉 all I had to do is to cut the sleeves.

And I even made a cropped top! 😉

I can actually join KFC’s “street-wise” contest HAHA! 🙂

 

Bisous,

The Vow Movie

Okay, I know I am late but I watch this trailer at least twice a day and I think I ought to share this to you. (PS. I always get teary-eyed everytime. I could already imagine myself watching this in the movie house HAHA).

I’m a sucker for romantic films– tragic romantic films like If Only, A Walk To Remember, The Time Traveler’s Wife, One Day and The Notebook. *takes le big sigh* The Vow is an addition to my list which makes it look like more of a Rachel McAdams movie list. HAHA But anyway, I think she’s blessed to be always part of movies like this and I’ve always loved her. Do I still need to write why I love Channing Tatum? nahh.. you wouldn’t like that. it would take pages of this blog. HAHA

9-10-11 ★♥

FINALLY! after a loooong hiatus, I’m back to blogging. I’m so sorry for being so outdated. I’m just so busy with school and my laptops are busted and we have the usual crappy internet at home.

Anyway, lemme start with this post. Memorable date, and treasure-able memories 🙂
9-10-11 (September 10, 2011) was a Saturday and my cousins and I finally decided to watch the most awaited movie, ONE DAY

After it, I received a random text from my friend, El about a pool party at Yenny’s. My lovie, Essa along with Teine, fetched me in Ayala to meet up with Elna in BTC but we made a quick stop at our apartment to pick up my clothes. It was such a random night and everything wasn’t planned.

Food and other drugs

Because there is NOTHING more in this world I love than FOOD.

When the month started, My lovie and I took our friend, Mikkah on a movie date to welcome her as a college freshman here in Cebu 🙂 all of us came from Pagadian City so it’s always nice to be with people from your hometown.

One Day

Don’t keep fighting battles that are already lost.

she was reaching the limits of how much it’s possible to change a man.

Finally finished reading this incredible book, One Day which is soon going to be a major motion picture starring Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs) and Jim Sturgess (21). I think they’re both perfect to play Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew and I’m so excited for Anne on her British accent (even if critics say she’s awful I know the movie will still be fantabulous). Also, The setting is in Europe specifically in Edinburgh but they’ve done a lot of travelling so I’m pretty sure they’re gonna film the parts in Greece, Paris, etc. What I like about this book is that even if the places are really romantic, it’s actually an emotional riveting love story. Bittersweet to put it in one word.

Here’s the movie trailer. The movie’s gonna be out in August! 🙂
but if you guys are planning to read the book before the watching the movie, I suggest don’t watch the trailer or else you’ll get spoiled.

This is prolly my favorite chapter and I’m so satisfied to have seen it on the trailer and it was greatly shot.

One last thing! Movie’s soundtrack is Good Life by One Republic. One of my forever LSS.

UNTIL THE VERY END ϟ

One brilliant author. One amusement park. Two musicals. Three heroes. Seven books. Eight films. Millions of fans. A lifetime of memories. Harry Potter.

Okay, flashback 10 years ago when I first laid my hands on the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone book. I was in 4th grade and God knows what my age was. After reading it and seen the first movie, I knew that I will become a HUGE and shameless Harry Potter fan. I have read all the books from the very first line until the

All was well.

Finally, we’re on the last countdown 😦
A week before the movie came out in the Philippines (which was yesterday) my cousins and friends and I already made reservations for our VERY FIRST iMax experience for the last HP film. It was costly but it was definitely worth it.

2 days ago, I made a quick review of the last installation.
When I turned the dusty pages of my book, I saw this line, and I started crying.
(By the way, I started reading on the part where the last movie ended so I basically finished it in one night.)

So as early as 10am yesterday, I already prepared my outfit (we’re catching the last full show w/c is at 10:30pm pa HAHA!)

“So this is my life.”

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure it out how that could be.

Sparks are igniting. Flames are spreading → The Hunger Games Trilogy madness

I stare down at my wallet as I see my 20 pound bill and 10 dollar bill inside. Perfectly placed, I made sure the bills don’t crease. I had it since our family reunion and my aunt and uncle gave some bills as remembrance or decoration for our wallets. But come to think of it. If you convert its amount into peso, it’s one heck of money.So I made sure that I won’t use it until I am beyond broke and that I have to try my best-est NOT to use it at all.

It was saved for a month or two then I had to convert it coz there were some school dues and I don’t like asking money from my parents as long as I can keep up. Fortunately, there was a big amount left and I was inside FULLYBOOKED and I couldn’t keep my eyes from the three books on the shelf. The Hunger Games Trilogy by SUZANNE COLLINSit says.

I have known of its brilliance — on how well it was plotted and perfectly paced, you name it. I’ve been wishing (since last year) that FULLYBOOKED will open one set for free reading. I always have a great deal of free reads there. I’ve finished Beauty Equation and a lot of chick lits and more. But there was never an opened Hunger Games set so without hesitation, I bought it BUT never got the chance to read it until our internet connection was cut.

Everyone who told me about this book was true. It was such a good read I had to take it with me everywhere and it kept me all night. I finished every book for two days, so it took me 6 days, and the rest of the days? Obsessing about it, the movie, and making this blog post/review as good as my mind could offer.

I’ll start saying about the story. Of course I’m not gonna narrate it to you guys *eyes rolling* I, myself don’t wanna get spoiled in anything (books, movies, & tv shows) so I know how it feels. Don’t worry, I may have a couple of photos taken from the books, but I made sure it’s as vague as possible.

Hunger Games— a fight to death on live TV.

“In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between ages of twelve to eighteen to participate in the annual Hunger Games.”

If you think it’s more than enough, no it isn’t 😉
and you will find out more if you’ll start reading the series.

I’ll  introduce to the main characters — their descriptions and who’s gonna play who since the first movie will be out next year, March 23, 2012. (See??? The world isn’t going to end. It SHOULD NOT end. I still have to watch this trilogy and finish college!)

The main character here is Katniss Everdeen, sixteen years old, lives with her mother and younger sister, Prim and their cat, Buttercup, plus their goat, Lady.

Jennifer Lawrence (Winter’s Bone) plays Katniss Everdeen -She will also be playing Mystique in the upcoming new X-MEN movie.

-she looks nothing like how Katniss was described (Katniss has straight long black hair, which she normally pulls back into a long braid, olive skin, and gray eyes). I’m so excited on her transformation! i wonder how hot she’s going to look.

Then there’s this guy, GaleGale Hawthorne (to be played by Liam Hemsworth)

“When Katniss was 12, and he 14, both of their dads died in the same mining accident, and soon they became hunting partners. Katniss says that at 14, “Gale already looked like a man” And it is later mentioned he was over 6 feet tall. Similar to many people from The Seam, he has olive skin, straight black hair, and gray eyes.”

okay I’m not actually a fan coz I only know him as Miley Cyrus’ ex-boyfriend. And Gale’s supposed to be hot.. who knows? Maybe I’m gonna be able to learn to like him when the movie comes out 😉

Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson)

Peeta is described as having “ashy blond hair that falls in waves over his forehead”, blue eyes, and a stocky build. He is also very strong from lifting hundred-pound bags of flour at the family bakery. 

-ooohhh yes. that boy from the movie, Little Manhattan is all grown up! (and hot hehe) I’m definitely sure he can act. Peeta is the hardest and the most challenging character if you ask me.

I’m pretty excited on who’s gonna play Finnick Odair too because in the book, he’s described as…

However, here are some of the people who will play as tributes for each district 🙂

Here are some of the fan-made posters I saw in the internet..

What I like about this trilogy is that it’s the perfect love triangle and adventure novel set. Suzanne succeeded on giving us the right kind of series about weighing survival against humanity and life against love. The kind of series Stephanie Mayer opted to do but failed. I’m so sorry Twilight fans but Twilight Saga was so pathetic.
Okay, disclaimer: I did enjoy Twilight (the first book) and the HOT wolf pack but I never got the chance to finish reading until the last book. New Moon was boring enough to go on.

Well anyway, my Twilight rants are another story. Let us not send negative vibes on my Hunger Games post 😉

Thank you for reading! (to those who caught a glimpse, read a few phrases, survived a couple of sentences, and to those who finished up until the last of this blogpost.)

Breakfast with Audrey Hepburn at Tiffany’s

yah I know my title is SO lame but this post is so long overdue I can’t wait to share my thoughts.
Last Monday, my cousins and I had a movie marathon and the last movie we watched was Breakfast At Tiffany’s (my all-time favorite Audrey Hepburn film).

Being such a fan, I couldn’t help but notice Audrey’s fashion sense and I fell in love with her more.

This is one of my favorite scenes and is seen during the opening when she walked out of the cab right in front of Tiffany & Co. with bagel and coffee. Isn’t she lovely?

This is her signature look all throughout the movie. Floppy hat, black dress, and her cat-eye shades.

YES. Those leopard print cat-eye shades I can’t help on obsessing.

And oh, I forgot to mention her uber long cigar holder she uses at parties which caused a lot of trouble. HAHA!

Her eye mask and dangling ear-plugs with little blue tassels are absolutely gorgeous.

closer look 🙂 I love this scene where she talks to Peter but can’t actually hear anything.HAHA

Audrey has such a wonderful voice too! And looks super dashing even in home clothes with turban. Take a look at her wonderful fingers on her guitar. NOOOYCE.

How can someone look so fashionable while traveling? Audrey makes NO effort 😉

 

One can say too much about her but it is the fact: AUDREY HEPBURN is epic. She’s the prettiest I’ve seen in the world and she is an astounding actress. Beyond words. I bow on her 🙂

But did you guys know that Shia Labeouf‘s girlfriend, Carey Mulligan‘s always compared to her? She’s a great actress too.. and pretty 🙂

If you guys enjoyed Breakfast At Tiffany’s as much as I did, and you’re an Audrey Hepburn fan too, her movie, Sabrina is the second on my favorite AH movie list. My best friend, Ninez suggested it and I fell in love with the younger, more fashionable Audrey (in a non sexual way HAHA) at once.
