peace, love, & lip gloss

hello!
Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

My Uncle Karl

Hello world wide web, I would like to introduce to you my Uncle Karl.

Uncle Karl or, as I lovingly call him, Kuya Kalbo (a nickname he got because he was bald as a kid) is my mom's younger brother. He's also my godfather, so on Christmas days I would go to their house, call him Ninong, and…

The last two days

I always strive to maintain a healthy work-life balance, and the last two days is a perfect example of that. Although the hours are not that crazy (I get to the office before 8 AM and can leave before 5 PM), I belong in an industry where stress levels are high but in my two years of being here, I …

Astounding.

It's astounding how some people lack compassion.
I should be excitedly typing, sharing my experience and excitement at having met some of my idols from the local publishing scene at the first day of The Philippine Literary Festival 2014 held in Raffles Hotel today, but instead I am reeling.

The Philippine Literary Festival 2014

On my fourth month with ARC PR, my boss Jenny took me to a meeting with a potential client where she said, "We have to do things that move our hearts." when she was talking about one of her passion projects. That quote has stuck with me since then and has been a constant driving force in…

75 Years of Batman

It's not a big secret that I am a big BatFan. Not only is he my favorite superhero, he's also one of my favorite fictional characters of all time.
Last week, we had a fun Justice League-themed party to promote Shakey's Power Party Packages (more info about this here on my blog soon), a…

When all else fails, wear something cute.

You'll never know just how precious five minutes can be, until you've had to press the snooze button on a cold, rainy, dreary morning. Truth.

Have you ever had one of those days when you just want to stay in bed and not deal with work, or hellish Manila traffic, or any other adult responsib…

Review: The Body Shop InstaBlur

At the risk of sounding like a total narcissist, let me confess that I have hundreds of selfies in my old computers' hard drives long before the term 'selfie' was coined. I was a trigger-happy kid who, with the help of my then 5-megapixel digital camera (which was a big deal back in 20…

Movie review: Gone Girl

That feeling after you watch a brilliant and harrowing movie based on an equally brilliant and harrowing book that you don't even know how to begin writing a review. That's exactly how I'm feeling right now.
Today I took half the day off work to see the movie adaptation of Gone Girl dir…

The Happiest Thank You

I was touched and felt really giddy when I received a Coke bottle with my name on it as a surprise months ago, so just imagine my reaction when they contacted me to say I can surprise two more people with their own personalized Coca-Cola bottles!
I have a long list of friends I would love to Share…

Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

“Why didn't I learn to treat everything like it was the last time? My greatest regret was how much I believed in the future.”
I finished reading Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer before midnight last night, and this morning I watched its movie directed by Stephen Daldr…

[Online] Shopping is my only vice

Whenever something happens to me, I can either choose to react negatively or look on the brighter side of things. I always choose the latter. When my friends and I were trapped in the heaviest traffic jam we have had the misfortune to experience so far, I just chose to be thankful that I was with …

Oh October!

I was so tempted to use Oh-ctober! as this post's title but was too afraid to be met with crickets and collective booing from the Internet so I stuck with this one instead. Heh.
So, October. This morning I posted this on Instagram:
Funny how in just a few hours, a storm can literally rain on m…
