The Art of Moving On: Tips on How to Move On From a Break-Up

Image
In movies, we see the female protagonist drowning her sorrows and heartaches in a pint of her favourite chocolate ice cream while watching a romantic movie that is so far-fetched. Sounds familiar? Maybe you’ve seen the movie or maybe... YOU are that girl.
We’ve all been there – crying our hearts out and getting drunk to numb the pain. Us girls get overly dramatic when it comes to breaking-up. So whether you’re that girl in the bar who keeps ordering that shot of tequila or that one who breaks down mid-chorus of Celine Dion’s “All By Myself” amidst tears, here is a message for you: snap it up, girl!
You’re mature enough to stop sobbing like a little girl every time a relationship goes on the rocks. Sober up and straighten up because the following will help you get back on your feet and ready for a fresh start. Show that man you are better off without him.
Breakup Advice: First of all, ask the big question – “why did you break up?”
“The truth shall set you free” and indeed, it will... i…

Movie Review: “The Bling Ring (2013)”

Image
“The Bling Ring”, directed by Sofia Coppola, is a “feast of the eyes” especially to young adults. I’m not just talking about the movie’s attractive, young cast but I am more referring to the designer shoes, clothes, bags and jewellery showcased in the swanky lifestyles of Hollywood celebrities. If you enjoyed watching MTV’s Cribs and curious if Paris Hilton’s throw pillows really do have her face on them, then you might like this.

Legaspi Sunday Market

Image
Good morning! Breakfast at Legaspi Sunday Market today and yes, I love every stall!!! What I love about big cities like Manila (it’s a metro), especially Makati, is the wide variety of things you can buy and almost everything you could think of has already being thought of and well, you can buy it in stores. In the province where I live, everything is so limited, even zucchini is hard to find, there may be just two stores selling it. Here, you can actually buy things that you can just see on TV or magazines, only for a higher price.
I’m not really a big fan of metro’s but I wouldn’t mind going for a vacation. I am so opposite to my brother who loves the light and the hustling city! I couldn’t even ride a train by myself, well I can but I’m pretty sure I’ll be lost hahaha I always wait for my brother to drive me around or my sister-in-law to ride the taxi with me. I’d rather walk around than ride jeepneys or other PUV’s! On the 6th, I think I don’t have a choice but to ride a taxi to …
