The XX Live in Manila

Yesterday (July 30, 2013), I attended The XX's first ever concert in Manila with my friends. I'm still not a hundred percent over it, so do forgive me if I'm unable to give a detailed recount of my experience. It was insanely amazing, and I have so many people to thank (I'll get to that in a bit). I'll probably end up freaking out in excitement as I go on, but I'll try my best to word my thoughts as properly as possible for you guys!

I'm still alive + PLAYLIST

July has been quite a whirlwind month for me. Following what could possibly have been the best June in my life, this month (which is about to end, thankfully) has proven to be quite the rollercoaster ride.

I recently discovered BumbleBeeble's videos when it came up on my YouTube homepage, listed under 'What To Watch.' The beautiful video thumbnail piqued my interest, and so, being the curious cat that I am - I gave it a chance. The video above is the one I am talking about. It was a minute and five seconds of my life well spent! It's incredible how quickly it inspired me, despite the short length of its entirety. I do highly suggest everyone to check out her stuff. Another one of my favorite videos of hers is this one, and it may or may not have gotten me into collages again. Happy viewing! ♡

This is how you lose her

"This is how you lose her.

You lose her when you forget to remember the little things that mean the world to her: the sincerity in a stranger’s voice during a trip to the grocery, the delight of finding something lost or forgotten like a sticker from when she was five, the selflessness of a child giving a part of his meal to another, the scent of new books in the store, the surprise short but honest notes she tucks in her journal and others you could only see if you look closely.

Paradise (in which I ramble about clothes for the first time)

Mid-riff tops are a pretty popular trend as of late, and while I'm not one to jump on bandwagons, I instantly fell in love with the one I'm wearing above. It's one of the three things I received from Apparal, and is also my favorite. The fabric is so soft and stretchy, and the detailing in the back is the prettiest. I can almost hear my mom going, "you're wearing that top again?!" because I'd probably wear it out so much.

The First Time

Being the sucker for coming-of-age films/(non-cliché) teenage rom-coms that I am, The First Time became an instant favorite of mine. I had previously read about it on IMDb earlier this year, but forgot about it not long after. Thankfully, Julia sent me the link to her blog post about her own summer film festival just this week, where The First Time was one of the many movies to be included in her list. I remembered the brief moment of excitement that I felt when I first heard about the film ("OMG I HAVE TO WATCH THIS"), and so I watched it. Twice. The second time, with my mom.

I'm not going to spoil anything for you guys, but if you plan on watching this with your parents, I'm warning you ahead of time that there are some pretty saucy scenes (nothing too Rated R though) that could possibly make things awkward. But other than that, it's a brilliant film. Britt Robertson's character was a bit of a Manic Pixie Dream Girl, but... Dylan O'Brien, guys. There were some cliché moments, but the director managed to make it work, so all in all, it's a pretty damn entertaining film. The cinematography was really pretty too.

Watch the full movie here.

Indiestructible Graphic Tees Lookbook

This has been a well overdue shoot. It was always delayed due to my unable to wake up early to shoot, clashing schedules with my supposed model, and the fact that I was preoccupied with other... things (or people, rather). My impulsive self decided last minute to shoot with my best friend, Chesca, instead, just so that I could get it over with. I was also itching to put the clothes up online on Indiestructible already.
