Spell Severe Pampering

Severe pampering. Yes. I need that badly. The nails on my feet seem to be cracking. My french tip manicure are destroyed and it’s just annoying whenever I glance at my feet. This is kinda embarrassing. And it’s feeling kinda awkward now because it’s really pointless to share it with you since this is all about me and my personal hygiene stuff. Somehow I feel like not caring now.

Weeks before, I had been already looking for a good color of nail lacquer. And of course I went through Deborah Lippman’s page. So here are the colors I want my nails to be two weeks from now (so that’s gunna be on the first day of my glory days, Sembreak).

Looks so elegant. Xxx

Had always been my favorite color!! X

Partyyyyy Lacquer ❤ ❤ ❤

And this one not from Deborah Lippman but the color is so sweet and lovely + elegant + very teeanage-ish. (Had so many descriptions hehehe)

Can’t wait my Mani-Pedi tmrw!! But sadly my Manicurista said my nails need to rest from Nail Lacquers. So it’s like I have to wait for another two weeks to get my nails colored. Yaaaayyyyyyyyy. Thank goodness I have patience.

Having A Coke With You x Beastly

"Love is never ugly"

I have to say that this has been my favorite movie for this week. It has been a great time watching it. Alex Pettyfer was just so hot even in the beasty face moments. Awesome talaaaaggggaaaa. Vanessa Hudgens and him make a good pair. A sweeeeeet pair. And my favorite of course, the Poem part wherein the place (the garden in the movie – ya have to check it out) was soooo lovely. ❤ ❤

Having A Coke With You (Frank O Hara)

is even more fun than going to San Sebastian, Irún, Hendaye, Biarritz, Bayonne
or being sick to my stomach on the Travesera de Gracia in Barcelona
partly because in your orange shirt you look like a better happier St. Sebastian
partly because of my love for you, partly because of your love for yoghurt
partly because of the fluorescent orange tulips around the birches
partly because of the secrecy our smiles take on before people and statuary
it is hard to believe when I’m with you that there can be anything as still
as solemn as unpleasantly definitive as statuary when right in front of it
in the warm New York 4 o’clock light we are drifting back and forth
between each other like a tree breathing through its spectacles

and the portrait show seems to have no faces in it at all, just paint
you suddenly wonder why in the world anyone ever did them

I look
at you and I would rather look at you than all the portraits in the world
except possibly for the Polish Rider occasionally and anyway it’s in the Frick
which thank heavens you haven’t gone to yet so we can go together the first time
and the fact that you move so beautifully more or less takes care of Futurism
just as at home I never think of the Nude Descending a Staircase or
at a rehearsal a single drawing of Leonardo or Michelangelo that used to wow me
and what good does all the research of the Impressionists do them
when they never got the right person to stand near the tree when the sun sank
or for that matter Marino Marini when he didn’t pick the rider as carefully
as the horse

it seems they were all cheated of some marvelous experience
which is not going to go wasted on me which is why I am telling you about it

Some kilig interviews:

One more reason why I love Beastly is bec Pixie Lott sang most of the songs. And it was totally nice so I thought of sharing it.

Ateneo: QUATRE x UAAP Basketball

This photo is from Interaksyon.com

The Ateneo Blue Eagles defeated the Far Eastern University Tamaraws, 82-69, in  game 2 of their best-of-three finals series on Saturday to win the 74th UAAP men’s basketball tournament.

With the sweep, the men in blue won their fourth straight UAAP championship, joining the ranks of University of the East, University of Santo Tomas and De La Salle University as teams who have achieved the feat. The Red Warriors won from 1965 to 1971, the Growling Tigers did it from 1993 to 1996 while the Green Archers ruled the league from 1998 to 2001.

Today, the Blue Eagles are the kings of the UAAP mountain, and it wasn’t even close. Ateneo won 16 of 17 games this season, and looked every bit as dominant doing so.

FEU tried to make it a fight in game 2, even taking a 36-35 lead at halftime. But the defending champions rattled off a 22-9 run in the third quarter to take 57-45 lead heading into the final period.

Ateneo was never really threatened in the fourth quarter, and led by as much as 19 points several times before the end of the match.

I feel like the most-super-duperest happy person alive today. 4-peat, baby!! That’s all I wanted for this week. And thank Heavens for letting it happen.

This was actually the first of all the games that I watched carefully. (Share: Bec I always skip parts due to severe-nervousness) My eyes were on the TV from the start up to the last moment where in Boom and TJ said goodbye. I was so rejoiced with this outcome, also came teary-eyed especially with how Bacon hugged his dad (Leo Austria, head coach of AdU, the 2nd runner-ups), and got surprised and laughed on how Slaughter grabbed the microphone from TJ.

1st Quarter had been a lame start, just as what I’ve tweeted but I still got a happy and high soul and kept cheering them. 2nd Quarter, little bit disappointed me bec FEU got a lead-with-one-point in the end of the second half. But I still kept praying. But 3rd Quarter was a blast. All players, special mention to the Bench players, who had been unexpectedly-really great throughout the game, were getting their beat and just kept on shooting baskets. Of course I got hyped up but that little voice reminded me that there’s still a Fourth Quarter. And then Fourth Quarter came and signaled already that there was really no chance at all for FEU to come back. Drowned with a 19-point-lead, and 5 more minutes left, who’d come back and take the lead with that case? No one, of course, especially if it is Ateneo who is your opponent.

Anyway. Congratulations to Nico Salva for getting the MVP-Finals!! Although I was really rooting for either of the two: Kiefer Ravena (mylove, chos!!) and Greg Slaughter since they were topping the race to Season MVP. But I’m all contented. Nico Salva finished the 1st game with a perfect stat. Nothing more I could say with that 8/8 and 10/10. Hats off!!

And for my final word, I also want to say my deepest and truest Congratulations to FEU!! You guys are surely crying and sobbing in your dug-out. Loljoke. So bitter. So glad I kept my humbleness all throughout Game 1 and Game 2 but I just couldn’t help posting a ‘Bitter Post’ in Facebook. HAHAHAHAHA. Well atleast I also gave the freedom that I deserve for myself.

PS: Still gunna watch the replay in Studio 23 after the X-Factor. Hope you could all catch that up also! ❤

Just finished reading.

Nicholas Sparks, I love you. You just showed how great love is. I wish Gabby and Travis really lived. I wish. Their love was the truest. Sparks never failed me. He always left me teary-eyed yet he still imparts lessons. I dare you to read The Choice. So wonderful.

Travis Parker and Gabby Holland set off into an interesting journey of life as neighbors and then lovers. Many conflicts are overcome. Travis Parker is a happy man with wonderful friends, great occupation and an envious life. He thinks his life is already full of joy and happiness. Then Gabby Holland moves in the house next door. And what blooms is an emotional and inspiring love story. It is a story about overcoming barriers to be with loved ones. It is about love, trust, strength, and the choices we can make to show them.

***

What was your inspiration for The Choice?
I wanted to write a novel with a structure and tone that harkened back to The Notebook, i.e., the story of a man who loves a woman unconditionally.

Will there be a sequel to The Choice?
Perhaps. If I can come up with a high-quality, original story, I might just write something more about Gabby and Travis. These were two of my favorite characters.

Will The Choice be made into a movie?
Perhaps. As of now, the film rights are not for sale.

***

:(. No movie for this? I was really expecting. And just as I was thinking how perfect Zac Efron would portrait Travis Parker’s character, I saw this.

Released: Warner Brothers, projected April 20, 2012
Director: Scott Hicks
Starring: Zac Efron, Taylor Shilling, Blythe Danner

Disappointed.

But I suppose it’s going to be wonderful also (just as how The Choice was) and I should know that because Gail just let me borrow her book and my hopes are high that this would be the next book that I’m going to be in-love with. X
