And did I mention that they were sponsors of the Harry Potter screening by Zed yesterday?! This brand is getting bigger and bigger. And I am so excited on what they have to offer! Visit Moonleaf Tea Shop later and get amazing freebies, aside of course from your very luscious milk tea drink! I’m also excited with our upcoming collaboration (not the blog, but something I’m working out with.) There’s so much happening at Moonleaf Tea Shop!

Will be dropping by after the Cinemalaya opening night! Say hi, when you see me!

It’s 3am and I’m still thinking of Harry Potter

You may have read (or not) that I dropped everything just to catch the premiere night of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 today. I still can’t organize my thoughts about it though. It’s a mix of feelings —

Happiness, (the movie looks good, good enough to be happy with)
Kilig
(SOMEBODY is a very generous lover)
Confusion, (I really didn’t read the book)
Laughter, (there were some really funny moments)
Sadness, (it has ended) and
Courage (I don’t know about you, it’s a pretty motivational movie.)

But, above all this, I shall miss the Harry Potter series (especially Daniel Radcliffe, who has given me plenty of wet dreams, LOL!)

There’s this app in Facebook called Find your Patronus. And apparently, I’m the same with THE generous lover I was talking about.

Kidding aside, it’s so depressing (extreme!) because it just feels like a generation has just ended. Seeing the last of the Harry Potter movies maybe emotional to those whose childhood was confined within the pages of JK Rowling’s masterpiece. It’s emotional for me though, not because it defined my childhood, but because I feel somebody had just died. Yeah, weird, but really in that kind of way.

*I REALLY WISH I CAN SPOIL BUT I WON’T ‘CAUSE I LOVE YOU GUYS*

But think this: it’s so good, it kept me from tweeting. Usually, when I’m really REALLY bored with a movie, I check my phone, which is in silent mode, several times, until something comes out interesting. This one, however, kept me to the edge of my seat. Yes, another weird phenomena these days. There’s just some really annoying seatmates who kept on talking and talking and giving irreverent comments about the movie. I nearly gave an advice that they should’ve bought pirated DVD na lang instead and get caught eventually and be jailed instead of ruining people’s happy cinema experience. But aside from that, nothing bred boredom. But that’s me, I don’t know you.

Well, my disorganized thought had led me into thirty minutes of directionless writing. It’s nearing 4am, and I still can’t stop thinking about Harry, or why did they include a scene of Daniel Radcliffe changing clothes. LOL! Okay, stopping there. No more spoilers! And no more lusting over Harry! But you better watch it!!!

Preparing for another movie tomorrow,
J

Thanks to Paola and Zed for the free movie. I love free movies!!!

Manels Private Sale

If there are two fashion guilty pleasures that I have – that would be shoes and bags. Shameful confession: most of the time, before I look to the face, I look to the shoes first! Well, anyway. HAHA! Enough of that.

Two days before the launch of the biggest sale (as far as I’m concerned) I’ve ever heard, Manels invited bloggers to see their latest collections and, of course, to go shopping!!! ALL ITEMS, 50% OFF! Zeh bloggers just went wild!

DSC_1046Bloggers just went giddy!

DSC_1051Ooops, dark. Sarreh Melai!

DSC_1052Camwhore-all-you-can! You go shoot that photo, Aisa!

DSC_1057Early (not angry) birds: Aisa, Reg, Honey, Krissy, and Ana

DSC_1061Gah, so many choices! WHICH TO BUY THOUGH?

Maphisto: Men’s shoes. I actually find it marginalizing (very serious, lol) that most boutiques have only A CORNER for men. We are capable of dressing up people, so pimp that corner up! Just saying…

DSC_1047Premium leather

DSC_1050I love the wingtip and perforations, but I really don’t need it.

DSC_1053These look comfy like bathroom slippers.

DSC_1055Topsiders nation

DSC_1059I’ve been searching for a tote bag…

DSC_1060When you’re at Manels, try to smell the leather. It’s so addicting.

DSC_1064I have a pair that looks like these, but I think aren’t as sturdy as these topsiders.

Now some treat for the girls. Manels has a wide selection of women’s shoes.

DSC_1067This snow leopard print tote can stand out in any crowd.

DSC_1068Fringe, anyone?

DSC_1073Studded leather oxfords. For some remixed hipster chic outfit.

DSC_1094You know what they say…

DSC_1080“The higher the heels…”

DSC_1083“…the closer to God!”
