Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander (Oceans, Hillsong)

Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander (Oceans, Hillsong)

Like any other girls, I grew up wanting to have a collection of shoes: flats and heels; however, to be honest, I cannot stay long wearing 6-inch heels. I do not know how other girls do it, but one thing I know for sure, I do not have the answer, haha! Well, back in my high school days, we used to have formal parties wherein a pair of heels was always on every girl’s checklist. Being always one of the organizers of these school parties, wearing heels makes it more unimaginable, that is why after an hour or so, I will always be seen wearing a pair of flats. Flats became my best friend  because it’s comfy with always a shot of class.

A few weeks ago, I received an e-mail from the designer of Marione Forward, telling me that they will send me some shoes over, plus I even had the chance to pick the shoes that I want. Yay!!!

I am still thankful that I was one of the many who was given the privilege to blog about Marione Forward. I have tons of flats, but owning a pair from this shoe line is exceptional, so maybe you are getting curious with all the buzz, what’s with this store that makes it more special than other online shops? Marione Forward offers originally designed shoes that comes with affordable prices. They can also customize shoes for weddings, special occasions or for just everyday wears. How cool is that, right?

Okay, I cannot keep up anymore, I will start to talk about the shoes they sent me!!

Sakura by Marione Forward (Holiday Collection)

When I was browsing through Marione Forward’s Facebook page, this is the first pair that caught me eye. The store already has more than 5 collections since it was launched last October 2012, but this is the must-have for me! It is very chic yet classy. I paired it with a simple white chiffon dress, and it really compliments the shoes.

I swear I will overuse these when I get to Singapore next week, since I know that I will be doing a lot of walking in there, but now, I do not have to sacrifice fashion just for the sake of comfort since I have these chic flats, hooraay!!

Caroline by Marione Forward (The Contour Collection)

This is also a favorite!! Unlike the Sakura flats, Caroline is much easier to pair with. Pants, dress, shorts, or skirt will do! I might do an OOTD blog post wearing these flats if I still have time before I leave next week.

Since UP doesn’t have any uniforms, I will be needing these kind of flats, though I have to pick a number of shoes only since I am moving to a dorm, so I can’t bring all my stuff, but these flats will be a sure ball on the list!!

That ends my Marione Forward experience! And now, I’m actually saving up for this Cleopatra Gladiators. It looks really fancy, right? I need to have this before the school year starts! They still have a tons of shoe collection posted in their page that you can check out, and you can surely get your own pair even just after saving up a week of your allowance because of its affordable prices. Hope you guys enjoyed this blog post!! Know more about this shop through their accounts:

Town with AJPM
Most of us will start to attend classes in different universities this month, so no one would have thought that we will still have another hohol…. but it actually happened!! After our overnight at Janin’s and the tambay at Norbin’s house, this was the only time that we were almost complete. Originally, Janeen and I were planning to try Press Cafe since I have been eyeing the restaurant for almost a month now; however, we also thought of inviting AJPM with us. Luckily, half of them were available, so we decided to push it through.
We agreed to meet at Town before lunch. I arrived a little early, so I stopped by at Fully Booked, and read a David Levithan book. After a while, I received a text from Raven that he was already there. He picked me up at the book store, and then we headed to the meeting place. Within 10 minutes or so, we were already complete!!
Had our late lunch at Shakey’s. Thank you for the treat, Joe! We were a ‘little’ noisy because chismisan (lol), laugh trip, Janeen’s monopod, more chismisan, catching up and food. Also, we had a little surprise for Bea because it was her birthday last Tuesday, the crew gave her an ice cream with a candle on top and sang her happy birthday. Belated 17th, Bea!! 
We roamed around before we decided to play Laser Tag. We grouped ourselves in to two, just before entering the arena. I think we were shouting the whole time?? 5 minutes just after the start of the game, and my body’s already pagod and full of sweat due to running and laughing. After the game, the gang was not yet contented, so they were all up for a second game though I was not able to join them because I had to meet someone with regards to my blog. I can’t share it to you guys until it’s all set, but I’m really stoked!!
Everyone was all tired, so we decided to chill at Jamba Juice. We raped their photo booth with our funny faces because we were seated in front of it, so we had all the time to overuse the innocent camera. I think we had 10+ photos all in all.
After that, we decided to head home. On our way back to Cavite, we talked about college stuff and I can’t believe that we’re actually going to different universities na. It still feels like 2011 and our only problem was our parents’ approval for our dinner dates at Tagaytay after school or hohol during the weekends. Thank you Janeen, Marga, Joe, Norbin, Raven, Jayanne, Drake, Bea, Dale and Billy!!! Had so much fun with you guys.
We are actually planning to visit our alma mater next week, and I just can’t wait!!

The Five Things I Learned From Maleficent

Even if I’m the only girl in the family, I still grew up watching the classic Disney movies, but to be honest, Aurora was the least of my favourite; however, there were many reasons why I still ended up wanting to watch the movie, “Maleficent”.  First, after three years of acting hiatus, Angelina Jolie is finally back and it was just impossible to miss her excellent acting skills and stunning beauty (her cheekbones are bomb). Second, I have seen a lot buzz on Twitter about it, so I really got curious on what this movie really offers. And lastly, it is still a Disney movie after all… why would I miss it?
I was shocked on how Maleficent turned out to be a really excellent movie. There were so many lessons that lie in the middle of the story. As promised, here are the five things I learned from Maleficent:
1. Never make a decision when your emotions are all over the place. Maleficent was regretful with the curse she put to Aurora during her christening. When she grasped that Aurora didn’t deserve what was given to her, she tried her best to revoke it; however, she couldn’t do anything because the decision she made years ago cannot be broken. This teaches us that we should be far more than careful because, sometimes, when things have been said and done, nothing can abrogate it.
2. No matter how bad it is, a broken heart can be restored. We have witnessed Maleficent’s struggle, anger and pain when she discovered that Stefan tricked her and cut off her wings due to greed of power and glory. After that, she became the villain we expect she would be, her spirit was crushed, but time heals pain after all. After putting a curse on baby Aurora, her heart began to restore. She was the one who looked over Aurora when the clumsy fairies struggled to raise her. After some time, she learned to genuinely smile like she did before she met Stefan, and found her way to be happy again, so no matter how badly we’ve been hurt, the possibility of healing will always be there. You cannot always force it to come, but once it starts, the pain will subside slowly, but surely.
3. There is always the other side of the story. Growing up, I just knew that there was this bad witch who put a curse on Sleeping Beauty. The Villain. Done. However, when I watched the movie, I realised that it was more than a villain. Maleficent opens not only our eyes, but our hearts that no matter how drastic it is, there will always be two sides of the story. Never close the possibility of an another story. Give it a chance and hear it, because you will never know. Search out the truth, not just the story that sounds good to your ears.
4.  We will always need someone. As seen in the movie, Maleficent and Aurora saved each other from their own troubles. Maleficent tried her best to revoke the curse, but even if she wasn’t able to, they still found a way to save her. While Aurora, on the other hand, gave back Maleficent’s wings. To all the girls out there, there will always be a point in your life when you will be badly needing a catch, but not specifically a guy to save you from the drastic things that are happening.
5. You can always choose your identity, a hero or a villain? Maleficent became the hero of her own villain story. Never settle for a label the people usually give you, you are always more than what they think and say you are. After all, it is always your choice who to become.

When someone cries so hard that it hurts their throat, it is out of frustration or knowing that no matter what you can do or attempt to do can change the situation. When you feel like you need to cry, when you want to just get it out, relieve some of the pressure from the inside - that is true pain. Because no matter how hard you try or how bad you want to, you can’t. That pain just stays in place. Then, if you are lucky, one small tear may escape from those eyes that water constantly. That one tear, that tiny, salty, droplet of moisture is a means of escape. Although it’s just a small tear, it is the heaviest thing in the world. And it doesn’t do a damn thing to fix anything.
