Watched WonderWoman!


Watched Wonder Woman and all was left in me was awe! After years of not watching a movie on cinemas, my heart was left pounding. Not to mention the moment when you want to exclaimed “Ang saya maging babae” well this notion of me exclaiming words such as this inspired me to positively believe in what I believe, to look on a positive outlook in life even if others wouldn’t dare to jive in with and so and so forth! 

The same way as Wonder Woman would entail in viewers like me. There’s one line she said (SPOILER) not basically the exact words but as far as I remember “Who will I be if I stay?” the moment when she was leaving their island to search for Eros and go with Steve Trevor. My best friend and I started smirking at each other because those words are somehow a wakeup call to us to explore, take risks, dive in, and move forward towards that one belief you had ( I want to be someone). Even if Diana was warned by her mother to not go, she was stubborn enough to seek for that calling in her heart and help the humans.

The movie also shows how women could be as compassionate as ever even on times of war and depression. She see’s all the best way she could do to help, (SPOILER) and even if Captain Steve tells her that there’s nothing they could do to save others because it’s already been happening in years, she stands on her will and save as many people as possible (not to mention her super strength and bravery!).


Gal Gadot’s portrayal of Wonder Woman is literally like she is WONDER WOMAN! All hats to her! She is not just incredibly stunning, her height was pretty much a dream for girls like me, she became a hero to everyone who watched her (not to mention she’s really a hero since she had worked in the military). The chemistry!! Her chemistry with Chris Pine is oozing! It’s like hearts everywhere, even by just looking at one another it’s all sparks fly!

Before I end this blog of mine, this movie also tells us, that we, as humans are created with knowledge of knowing what is right and what is wrong and the god of war, Eros just whisper things on us and it’s just up to us to follow what we think is right and what we think is wrong. We humans create the world we live in, we humans made this war, we were trapped in jealousy, weakness, self-doubts and notion of supremacy! We somehow forgotten the heart of compassion, the heart of strong-willed, humbleness, kindness, and forgiveness, because of this things, it became a crucial way of destroying one another. War is not just about guns, but on how we scrutinize others with words (words that act like swords that pierce each other’s heart). Just like Diana Prince’s last words from the movie I learnt that inside every one of them there will always be both. The choice each must make for themselves - something no hero will ever defeat.”

I really hope that the world we live in today would be a better place for our children’s children. The same as what Captain Steve said “I believe that this war should end”. So that the world we live in today would be a world that is peaceful and full of harmony, we might have different opinions in life, but after every argument we must learn to forgive. Just like what Wonder Woman said, that only love can truly save the world. J


And it's Woman Power after all! :)

Kdrama Feels: Kdrama Fan Item Starter Pack


If you’re a Kdrama fan like me, I guess you’ll recognize this same thing that I do. On today’s blog, I will be talking about the things that always exist in a Kdrama the so-called it’s a “thing in kdramas”. It’s like the must haves in order to meet your oppa or noona! :D

Here's the Top Kdrama Items I used to see in a kdrama. 

The famous Yellow Umbrella

I have noticed this yellow umbrella ever since I have watched Love Rain; this three second love story focuses on its yellow umbrella as a symbol of love, because it is where everything started. I also noticed this yellow umbrella in Korean Drama Missing you, where the younger versions of our heroine stayed at the playground and watched the rain.

Missing You

Tomorrow With You 

Splash Splash Love



The Red Scarf Connection

The red scarf of love; it’s actually also noticeable in a lot of Kdrama’s such as Goblin, Missing You, Uncontrollably fond and more), whether it’s for fashion a visual connection of love, or just a plain scarf. I also remember how this scarf was visible in anime’s too, like Hinata made Naruto a red scarf, or Misaki made a red scarf for Takumi :D

Uncontrollably fond

Goblin

The mysterious Black Cap
If you’re witnessing a black cap on a drama, it may be a super action packed series filled with notorious villains sprouting everywhere. This item is surely a hello to you! Whether our protagonist is a secret agent, a hidden hero, a person framed up with crime he didn’t do, or a top down fashion of our Ahjussi’s and Oppa’s in black.

W:Two Worlds

Descendant's of the Sun

City Hunter


The lovable Plushie

Who wouldn’t miss this cutie? This item is one of the significant “bida” in a series, there’s always a certain plushie to like a certain kdrama. Even if some plushie’s were not as visible as the others, there’s always a plushie to say hello! Or something we could say “Oh nakita ko to sa DOTS, o kaya gusto ko ng Buckwheat sa Goblin!”!
Oh my Venus

He's Beautiful

Princess Hours

Legend of the Blue Sea

Goblin


The promise jewelries

Of course when there is lovers for sure there are jewelries! The so called true symbol of  love; “Wagas na pag-ibig!” at every end of a drama or in the middle of the drama, our protagonist would declare their love for one another via jewelry, it may be a ring, or a necklace or a bracelet. A very notable item when professing your one great love to your one true love :D
Love In the Moonlight 

Goblin

One More Happy Ending

Pinocchio 


BONUS: 
The unnoticeable white bag

Okay, this item seems to be new in the Kdrama world, and I have only noticed this one on Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. And then when I have watched other drama’s such as Its Okay it’s love, She Was Pretty, Suspicious Partner and recently starting Fight My way, we can see this white bag on our leading ladies shoulder. Well it’s not as visible as the other items but it’s there and sometimes it comes with design! :D

The Strong Pink Hoodie
Another new thing in Kdrama and I am loving it! Pink Hoodies! Despite of its feminine and soft color, this Pink Hoodies are making it's trend as it portray strong women of this generation! Exhibit A: Do Bong Soon! But this hoodies aren't just starting to make a sound in Kdrama but the PINK generation lovers are loving it! :) LIKE ME!

Kdrama Feels: Fashion Inspired 2

Define too much Kdrama! :))) and because of this it's affecting the way I dress up! Special thanks to my mom's old clothes and some hand me down clothes from my aunts and cousins. As we all know, fashion pieces such as our clothes are now creating an environmental crisis nowadays. Due to fast fashion, sometimes, we don't know where we could put our excess clothes sometimes our old clothes ends up online or to given to your little cousins or others on trash bin (yes, others throw them and because of that it causes pollution).

So to avoid causing this changes to our environment, I have made this mix and match fashion pieces from the past (my mom's old clothes) and some of my wardrobe to create this fashion peg like our favorite Kdrama actress/actors. We don't need to buy new clothes to create our kdrama feels but we can actually find clothes that looks like the clothes our Kdrama heroines wear.

Say hello to Kdrama Feels Fashion Peg part 2 :) I am still not good at fashion styling but maybe I could help input some fashion tips on your next OOTD :) excuse me and my GIF's hihihihih

She Was Pretty 
Top - Blue Stripes Shirt 
Pants - Printed Jeans
Shoes -Brown Man Made Leather Shoes
Bag -Handmade Bag by yours truly 
Kim Hye Jin's fashion style is a bit boyish when the drama had started. Since her character doesn't know much about fashion seems to be like a high school student who just wear whatever she wants and that's it. SO MUCH LIKE ME during the days!! (instead of long sleeves I used my favorite stripe shirt to match Hwang Jung Eum's stripes in She was Pretty, perfect for a tropical weathered country like the Philippines)
hihihihihihi :D
Descendants of the Sun 
Top - Long Blue Striped Polo 
Skirt - Black skirt (Forever 21) or Navy Blue :D
Shoes - Beaded designed shoe

Kang Mo Yeon's Style is definitely one way to achieve professional type of look yet feminine. She dressed with a tucked in stripped top and an A-line type of skirt that simply emphasize or elongates her legs, at the same time it also shows her petite figure and define's her waist. To achieve that Kag Mo Yeon Look I used my mom's old top, partnered it with my Forever 21 black mini skirt, that I bought for only 99php way back :D For my shoes, it's one of my old high school shoes that was given to me by my aunt in Saudi Arabia :D

Kang Mo Yeon Nine :D

Another Descendants of the Sun Peg
Top - Light Blue Jeans Jacket (for Men)
- Flower Laced undersleeves
Shorts - White Shorts (Natasha) 
Shoes - White Sneakers (Payless)
Bag - dark blue beach bag

To achieve another look from Kang Mo Yeon(her arrival in Uruk) used jean type of blazer that seems to look like her blazer which is a bit of light blue that looks like it's blended with gray, and then matched it with my white shorts and shoes. 
You are my everything! :D

Cheese in the Trap
Jumper 
Top - White Polo
Shoes - White Sneakers
Bag - Black Leather Bag :)

Hong  Seol's fashion style is definitely the clothes you want to wear to school not to mention it's comfy get up. Hong Seol wears over sized cardigans and clothes that can simply make relax without feeling a little bit cautious about what you wear. Just like jumpers, it's not on how you wear it but on how confident you can pull it off!  It's not exactly as Hong Seol's jumper but it's color and because it's a jumper, I have used it to pair with my Mom's old bag and white polo and sneakers. 

Hong Seol meets Bong Seol!!

Sweater - Pink Hoodie XOXO
Jeans - repaired Mom's jeans 
Socks - Iconic Socks
Shoes - Navy Blue Sneakers(Collie)/Green 
Bag - White Handmade Bag

 Bok Joo's fashion sense is always seen in a hoodie or in a layered vest, and sometimes, her outfits define her every mood. Whether she's heart broken, athletic, or happy, her style progressed from dark colors to a feminine get up and shades such as pink, peach or nude. Bok Joo's fashion sense can also be described as comfy! :) Basically it's not the same as Bok Joo's but because it's Pink and a Hoodie why not? 

Okay let's elongate! hahah

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon 
Blazer - From MINT
Top - Yellow Polo
Shorts - Gray/Jean type of Shorts
Bag - Brown Leather Bag (Small) 

Do Bong Soon's fashion style is simply about classic type pieces from blazer from boring type to unboring. Since Do Bong Soon depict's a strong character, her classic wardrobe made it possible to show her super STRONG feminine side yet retaining her sweet child-like image, from ruffles to dark pretty colors. Good thing about her wardrobe is that it's not to flashy, it actually makes balance (from super stripes top toned down to plain skirts or pants or vice versa). To achieve my strong woman get up, used my black blue blazer toning it with a yellow buttoned top to my gray shorts. I basically themed up my clothes in this tropical weather, cause you'll never know when it's going to rain or when the sun would hit you up!
Strong Woman Editor! :)


Fight for My Way
Top- Pink embroidered Kawaii polo
Shirt - from Boracay :)
Since Fight for my Way is still on it's 6th episode, the growth of Choi Aera's fashion style is still on-going(hihihihi). The change of colors and style is simply make her beauty radiates. Choi Aera is simply a woman that definitely tells you she's very pretty without uttering a word and her clothing style simply tells you so. To achieve the Choi Aera's style (used Fight my Way teaser) used my mom's old pink top, partnered it with my T-shirt from Boracay and my curly bangs!
major short down! :) Yes... because I'm not that tall :DDDDDD

One thing I learned from fashion is that you don't really need expensive clothes to shout out your fashion sense. All you need is the confidence to wear it all out and show what your true colors are! :) Sometimes, buying things in a much pricey stuffs isn't that bad, we also want it sometimes! :) hihihihi <3 

"Make your Everyday your Runway!"
So what's your kdrama outfit story? :D
