I received this Limited Edition Mascara from a very good friend of mine for Christmas (late, I know right) ~ I’ve already seen this mascara on shelves a few years back but I wasn’t too keen on buying it (Yes, despite it being Hello Kitty) since I’ve already tried using the regular one (Maybelline Volum’ Express) — which coincidentally, was one of the first mascaras i’ve tried (along with Etude House -I forgot the name- Mascara)
“I suspect it’s difficult for men to imagine a world in which their bodies have long been inextricably linked to their value as an individual, and that no matter how encouraging your parents were or how many positive female role models you had or how self-confident you feel, there is an ever-present pressure that creeps in from all sides, whispering in your ear that you are your body and your body defines you. A world where, from the time of pubescence on, you can feel the constant and palpable weight of the male gaze, and not just from your male peers but from teachers and sports coaches and the fathers of the children you baby-sit, people you’re supposed to respect and trust and look up to, and that first realization that you are being looked at in that way is the beginning of a self-consciousness that you will be unable to shake for the rest of your life.Even if they are never verbalized, the rules of bodily conduct for females become clear early on: when school administrators reprimand you for the inch of midriff that shows when you lift your hands straight in the air or youth group leaders tell you that the sight of your unintentional cleavage is what causes godly young men to fall, you learn that your body is dangerous and shameful and that it’s your responsibility to cloister it in a way that is acceptable to everyone else. You learn that your body is a topic of public debate that everyone is entitled to weigh in on, from a male classmate telling you that those jeans make your ass look huge to the male-dominated United States Congress dictating the parameters that rape must fall within to be considered legitimate. To be a woman, and to live life in a woman’s body, is to be held to a set of comically paradoxical standards that make you constantly second-guess yourself and jump through a million hoops in pursuit of an impossible perfection.”—Stop Catcalling Me (via albinwonderland)
Wow - it certainly has been a long time since I’ve logged on and posted! You know how it is…life. This year seems to be going by quickly again, with still so much to do! But, at least we’re not in hibernation mode any longer.
So I just finished watching another remake of yet another Philippine version of a Koreanovela: Full House. This one starred Heart Evangelista (Jessie) and Richard Gutierrez (Justin) as the two main leads. Followed by Isabel Oli (Elaine) and Patrick Garcia (Luigi) as the ‘thorns’ in their sides. Sheena Halili (Lisette) and Rainier Castillo (Donald) also star, and play the very ‘makulit’ and troublesome but cute and lovable best friend and brother of “Jessie”.
A very warn and funny story with a happy ending for once (as compared to the Pinoy version of Stairway to Heaven).
Can’t wait to see Endless Love with Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera (slated to come out in June of this year). Yes, another remake!
First of all can you believe that we’re almost in mid-February already? The years sure go by TOO quickly these days!
Gosh it’s been awhile since I’ve been on here. Work, work, work, busy, busy, busy! Blogging is much more labor intensive than I thought LOL. Though I do think that Tumblr is in essence more ‘scrapbooky’ than wordy. I like it all the same! But I do love reading all of YOUR blogs and taking a gander at the pretty cutie pics that you all post - so keep em’ coming! ;)
“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”— Joseph Campbell (via justbesplendid)
