What: Chris Brown Live in Manila
When: July 21, 2015
Where: Mall of Asia Arena, MOA Complex, Pasay City

For today's Throwback Thursday post, it's none other than Breezy live in Manila! It's been more than a month since Chris "Breezy" Brown visited the Philippines for the second time. He's been here years ago with Rihanna for their concert. This year was Breezy's first solo concert here in the country--and it's very controversial because he ditched the original schedule for his New Year's Eve concert that was produced by the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC)--causing him to get stuck in the country a few days after his concert.

"Good shoes take you to good places."

You know the saying, "Good shoes take you to good places". I don't fully believe in that because most of the time, "good shoes" have "good prices" too, and by "good prices", I mean expensive. I'm more of a practical shopper--I may be impulsive at times, but I never buy something that's beyond my budget if I know that I can find the same item but with a cheaper price--that's my mentality. I love shopping branded items, yes--but I only shop when it's on sale for at least 40%. I also love shopping in tiangges because that's the best place to find good and unique items at a lower price and you can even haggle!

In November 20, 2014, in a post published by Vogue, it was announced that Italian fashion designer who's based in Paris, Giambattista Valli was collaborating with Canadian cosmetics brand MAC Cosmetics for a makeup collection to celebrate the designer's ten-year anniversary of his self-titled fashion house. A lip collection that consists of five blooming, freshly cut garden shades and a gloss. The collection was released this summer, July 2015 in US, Canada and Europe and was sold out immediately online in MAC Cosmetics, Nordstrom and Macy's websites after its launch! I know, because I was one of the few fortunate ones to have it before it was gone. ;)

The story behind the song "Cheerleader" by OMI

The Story Behind The Hit Song "Cheerleader"
I don't usually share these kinds of things, but the story behind the hit song "Cheerleader" is amazing :)
Posted by Mitchell Wiggs on Monday, 3 August 2015

You probably have heard of the song "Cheerleader" by Jamaican singer, OMI and got hooked with the catchy and feel good tune to it. But apparently, there's more to this song than it may seem. I came across this video from Facebook and found it interesting. It even reminded me of the quote, "Behind every great man is a great woman". This song truly shows how true the quote is. Watch the video and find out. :)

OOTD: The New 'Black'

I have always been into the color black, ever since maybe high school (90's kids who grew up with punk/rock/emo music can relate. Lol). However, it was just lately when I finally admitted to myself that yes, black is definitely my favorite color. The reason why I have always suppressed my love for black is because it has always been related to evil--being the darkest color. People tend to have a connotation that black is associated to anything that's bad, dirty, emo, and pretty much anything negative! Well, I beg to differ. Now, I'm proud to say that yes, black (and white, actually) is my favorite color. In fact, it was just a few days ago, that I was able to finally say it out loud, when a colleague asked me why I have a lot of black-colored things. LOL.

It's been exactly 2 months now, since I last posted in this now-updated blog. So for my "comeback" post (LOL), let's talk about the band Passion Pit.

I don't know about you,  if you haven't even heard of the song "Carried Away" or "Take A Walk" in your entire life. But for the past weeks, it's been part of my playlist in preparation for the band's first ever concert here in the Philippines, that was supposed to happen on August 13, 2015 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
