going fritzolophical: “forgive and……”


It’s funny just how I thought of composing this before reading a random book with the theme of forgiving and moving forward. Okay! It was a Mills & Boon romance but what can I say? I have the heart of a woman who is a sucker for romance–or maybe I thought so.

By the way, back to the coincidence, maybe I’m a psychic or it’s just the effect of too much listening to Adele 🙂

Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 RTW

PARIS, October 4, 2011

Alexander McQueen is one of the brands I am looking forward to seeing every Fashion Week. Though he died last year, his works will always be thought as intense and passionate as shown in the groundbreaking exhibit at the Met. Thank God he has been a good mentor to Sarah Burton, Alexander McQueen’s new creative director.

Post-Lee Alexander McQueen, I personally found the collections a little less dramatic. Though every piece of them were amazing, I thought there should be more shock value. That there should be more to fire up a controversy. But upon seeing their latest Spring 2012 RTW, I found a new respect for Burton. Her shock tactics is now visible. Bizarre pieces covered the models’ face. Breasts were shown.

Burton said that her inspiration in making this collection is “..Gaia.the wonder of nature, the sea.” There were lots of pleats, ruffles, and aquatic-inspired prints that made the models sea goddesses. The designs just makes a woman as graceful as a jellyfish moving, as stunning as pearls, but as sinister as a barracuda men should fear.

Kudos to Sarah Burton and long live Lee McQueen!

Turban Legend

Caution.The post you’re about to see is full of my turbaned head.(Of course!what would you expect?!)

I’ve got this turban for free! The very generous Miss Kamille Ocampo (@kamocampo) had a giveaway spree to thank her blog followers. Apparently, I’m one of them. I think it also served as a promotion for her upcoming brand—Selfmade Manila.

I totally forgot I joined her promo until one morning, my vibrating phone woke me with a text saying that a parcel is on the way being sent to my address. But because we were under signal #3 from the Bagyong Pedring, the postmen can’t deliver it to our house. I picked it up from the Mail and More office the next day when the storm surge stopped and I was just wearing my PJs and flip-flops. And that’s it. I’ve got a new turban!haha

And who cares if my hair is short-ish! I still want to wear it.haha

Born This Gay: Glenn’s 14th Birthday Celebration

I’ve already uploaded these photos in our Block 16 account but the quality has been compromised that’s why I’m putting them in my blog. Hope the resolution’s better when I upload it here.

Well, Glenn’s birthday is actually on the 6th of October and she is not really 14. It’s for you to guess how old she is. I don’t want to spill it as I want her to indulge herself in her “Like A Virgin” status. Anyway, she was not the only girl who was supposed to give us a treat. Paola, Cherith, and Loraine were supposed to be joining us as previously planned but for some reasons, they were no-show. Casey had her blow-out earlier this month that’s why she’s excused from co-financing this party. LJ, the other virgin celebrant, is also away so there’s no way she’s celebrating it with us this year. Sana next year ilibre niya kaming lahat sa Cebu.

The meet-up happened at SM then we went to 50’s Diner to stuff our tummies then we went to Miguel’s to booze up. After Miguel’s, we thought we didn’t want to go home yet that’s why we went to Insomnia. Siyempre, bading kaming lahat kaya gow kung gow para mag-aura at mag-sight sa may bikini open ng mga hommes! Witchibels namang ka-join na yummy. May-I-dance naman kami shugkatapos ng bikini open. Kalorka ang Casey! Pa-ispluk pa siya na wit na niya bet sumayaw. sasamahan daw niya si Bata sa table na navovorlog na. Maya-maya, paggala ng mga mata namin, give-it-to me siya sa paggiling kasama ang mga otoko. In fairness dun sa isang otoko, may fez. Napagod kami sa pagsayaw kaya inubos na namin ang mamam namin sa T-ice tsaka gorabels na papunta sa mga balor namin.
