Bora until the 8th.
See you there, loves :*
This awesome photo was taken by the equally awesome Patty Mendoza.
Whenever I look at this picture, I can’t help but remember Krystle Carrington, my namesake from the 80′s hit series, “Dynasty.”
Look at her. She’s gorgeous! I especially love her in the white dress, because I would totally wear something like that! My parents had a thing for naming their kids after celebrities. My sister Jacklyn was named after Jaclyn Smith of Charlie’s Angels. My other sister, Diane, was named after Princess Diana, and my brother Rodrick was named after a famous and brilliant Jesuit priest, Fr. Rodrick. (i think!) I think finding out the reason behind your name is a pretty interesting thing. Unless of course you had horrible parents and decided to add puns to your name, or if it were Lucifer… or ABSCBN (non-fiction! this really happened to someone!) I actually love names so much, that I’ve named pretty much everything I own. For example, my macbook pro is called Levi (formerly Noah, but he died on me.), my favorite stuffed toys are called Moses and Jerimiah and my phone is called Ezekiel. Notice, I also have a thing for biblical names!
What other cool names can YOU think of?
Feel-good-shopping purchase 1: Floral Wedges <3
The feel-good-shopping-effect triples when you stumble upon a chic find. That’s exactly what happened with these beautiful wedges. I’ve been reading about the brand “Parisian” on several blogs now, and I just had to go and see what all the hype was about. Parisian=Racks over racks of heels that cost less than a thousand bucks. WOW. And amongst the wave of cheap, these floral wonders called to me. Talk about the ultimate summer shoe.
I had to run around the NAIA Airport in these babies, trying to catch my flight home yesterday. The crazy traffic made me incredibly late, and the whole airport was jam packed with people who were just as late as I was! (Thank God for conDREWtioning, enabling me to shove my way past all of the crazy passengers!) If that wasn’t bad enough, PAL overbooked the flight I was on, and had to remedy the situation by offering free tickets to those willing to get bumped off. There was a huge uproar of angry in the air. Thank goodness I was still able to sneak myself in the flight (and, I got to see Gavin, who looks so much bigger now!) The only things that made me feel better were my new summer wedges. I kept looking down at them when I felt like screaming, and suddenly, I didn’t anymore. I know this might sound incredibly shallow, but I’ll still say it: Thank God for the power of beautiful heels to brighten up any girl’s mood. <3
