MOVIE REVIEW: You Again

I've always believed that there were only 3 types of people in a high school hierarchy.  We have the "cool" ones which include the jocks, the cheerleaders, the org leaders, etc.  Then there are the "nerds", the uber-smart ones who clearly had the the makings of becoming the next Bill Gates but are sadly lacking in the necessary social graces.  And finally, the "neutrals", of which are composed of the shy types who breezed through high school without even setting their mark.

I would like to believe that I fall in between the "neutrals" and the "nerds".  I wasn't severely bullied but like all kids, I did some things I do regret (some of which still haunts me to this very day).

In Columbia Pictures' You Again, Kristen Bell plays ex-nerd Marni who must deal with the idea of her brother getting married to her HS arch-nemesis, the girl who single-handedly ruined her high school life.  What follows is a line of hair-brained schemes to ruin the wedding, but in the end, everyone realizes an important lesson.

It is definitely a feel good movie that I don't mind watching again.  It also helps that Betty White plays Marni's grandmother who also dishes out her own brand of timeless wisdom.

Making mistakes is part of what we do.  Its how we go about fixing them that matters.

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
