Alessi Likes STYLENANDA
STYLENANDA is a Korean online shop. It’s sort of like the NASTY GAL of Asia, but cooler, cause Asians are always cooler *biased* I discovered it on Instagram, and I liked ALL the pegs I saw. I seriously spent all afternoon looking at photo after photo, so you can say my afternoon was quite productive wtf. So after oggling at over 900 (wtf) photos, I narrowed it down to 32 (wtfffff) photos...
Experiencing a Patient's Death
It was an odd, unsettling numbness. I was frozen, composed - mainly for the lack of a better response to the situation. I struggled to take it all in, yet I did so complacently. It just bewildered me that my patient was alive and breathing one minute, and lifeless the next. I was emotionless. I felt neither sadness nor grief. In hindsight, I guess I felt this way because I was so taken aback at...
Alessi Likes Cheesy Folk Music
Cheesy Folk Songs by Alessi Brugada on Grooveshark I never realized how much I love folksy acoustic guitar-laden songs until I saw (heard?) how many songs I listen to actually sounded the same. Here’s my ever growing collection of songs of the cheesy folk variety. I don’t even know what genre these songs fall under so I just made up my own wtf. Featuring The Walkmen, Josh Pyke, Bon...
Alessi Likes Preggy Style
Daaaaamn Kristin Cavallari how do you make being preggers look so damn chic. Key adjectives that come to mind include: basic, casual, cool, flattering, and awesome. You might be a pregnant bitch, but at least you’re a very well dressed pregnant bitch. Because of that I’ve made a blog post about you.
Alessi Likes Aerobics
I’m totally feeling the 80’s/pastel spandex/leg warmers/head band vibes of this aerobics video. Jane Fonda is the shit. Wavy hair gold accessories spandex flexible shit. So inspired I made a collage out of spandex WTF 80’s aerobics videos might sound too weird for daily life, so to help you understand, I’ll let you know what I’ve been up to lately: -...
Alessi Likes Cake Pops
OMG. Cake pops are the greatest invention ever (next to cake). It’s this ingenious creation that takes something ordinary (lollipop) and makes it extraordinary (cake). And the best part is there are no-bake fridge cake pop recipes available! I got the recipe from a torn magazine page of Yummy, and I am so eager to try it out soon. For the meantime, I’ve made this cute little collage...
Alessi Likes Floral .gifs
These are .gifs and they are supposed to be moving. As I’m making this post the photos aren’t acting out the little tonic clonic twitches they did when I downloaded them, as if they’ve run out of batteries. Anyway, I find this such a refreshing mix of pearls and florals. The saccharine touches of pastels, how the pearls are so perfectly placed, the floral pattern that looks...
Alessi Likes Lavender Eye Shadow
This is another useless make-up post by someone who doesn’t know how to put on make-up wtf. I’m just very proud of my collage-making-photoshop-manipulating skillz. These lavender eyes really are something. I find them so edgy and pristine at the same time. Maybe I’ll try this out when I muster enough courage to actually put on eye make-up, cause I find doing so to be such a...
Alessi Likes The Perks of Being a Wallflower
The Perks of Being a Wallflower trailer is OUTTTTT OMG OMG OMG. It gave me goosebumps while watching. It actually quoted lines from the awesome Chbosky novel. It had some very interesting folksy indie background music which I am so excited to download. It had Emma Watson. I want to watch it NOW. I remember reading the book last year while struggling to review for my Nurses’ Licensure...
Alessi Likes the Virgin Suicides
The Virgin Suicides has got to be one of my most favorite movies of all time. The book was a work of art, and so was the movie. Everyone might know of the movie now, but when I discovered it (and the book) back in 2007 it was like a little secret I kept with the few who saw it. It was dreamy on a darker level. And it was a damn photogenic movie, every screen shot made a beautiful photo....
Alessi Likes Call Me Maybe Parodies
As I’ve guessed you’ve probably already seen the totes adorbs parody of Manila’s It Girls to Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” the song that has a way of getting stuck on everyone’s heads now. If you haven’t well here’s the video. Now I present to you a parody to that parody, put together by my charming college friends who have nothing...
Alessi would Like a Guide to Being Happy
1. Lower expectations - I’m not saying that it’s bad to expect at all. It’s just that if you don’t want to get disappointed, lower down your expectations. “Oh it’s better than what I expected” moments are better than being disappointed, right? 2. Take a walk - Or you can also work out! I honestly love sweating and trust me, you’ll feel better after a brisk walk or a run. When you workout, you...
Alessi Likes Aly!
Last weekend the girls and I celebrated Aly’s birthday. She’s one of the nicest, sweetest, and outright girly girls I know. I’m glad she had fun on her special day. It was nice to see them bitches again :) Us girls have a bad case of chronic lateness. We plan on meeting at 7:30pm, and show up a good 3 hours later. How’s that for fashionably late. Getting to the...
Alessi Likes May
May has been nothing but wonderful, come to think of it. I’m learning to handle things the way a big girl should, steadfast and composed. I’m still bitchy and impatient, and still excessively pessimistic, but that’s just who I am, I’m finding my way around it. There’s always room for improvement. I’ve come to appreciate the value of self-pampering. I’ve...
Alessi Likes Bed Weather
Yesterday’s weather was one of those very rare occurrences in Philippine climate. It was oddly chilly. Yaaaayyy! Bed/sweater weather is my favorite kind of weather. It calls for lounging in bed wearing yesterday’s clothes, delaying a shower (doing anything productive for that matter), and sleeping in. What a pleasant Saturday. I’d hope the weather was like this all year round....
Alessi Likes the New iPad
So last Tuesday, after another long day of duty, I dragged my tired ass out of bed and met up with Wens to attend Globe Tattoo’s launch of the new iPad. It was a very fancy schmancy event at the Philippine Stock Exchange Plaza, and we were best in underdessed LOL everyone looked damn put together! Wens and I had fun people-watching, eating out of every entree tray that came our way, and...
Alessi likes to give away free movie tickets
So does anyone want two tickets to Snow White and the Huntsmen? Why am I holding a give-away. Why am I giving stuff away when I’m greedy about free stuff myself. Sighh so many questions. Anyways here’s the reason why I happen to be giving away free movie tickets for the screening of Snow White and the Huntsmen this Friday (June 1, 2012.) Nuffnang was giving away free movie tickets to...
