I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Being a fashion aficionado as I am, I should also have my own fashion mantra, and that would be this: We can do so much on what we own. That is absolutely the essence of mixing and matching your apparels. We shouldn't dwell on what we lack. My mood for the "photo shoot" calls for a girly girl yet animalistic look. As I reviewed all my clothes in my closet, I discovered that I actually have a leopard printed top. I didn't really notice it. What's lovelier is that, my garments' prominent colors fall under my favorite color combination -- brown & black.
Do I look animalistic? I bet not!
I love Dorothy Perkins!

I so love this shot!

Fashion and photography make me sane.
Black and brown look lovely together.
I don't like my smile!
How I wish I'm a motocross player!

I still couldn't make up my mind on our date's final venue. I want him to decide for it, but he keeps on saying he's happy wherever we'll be at. Maybe we'll just go for La Toscana Italian Restaurant and Zabadani or Turquoise. I'm also thinking of dining at Jose Rafael Fine Coffee and Cafe Demitasse. It's too hard to choose just two among the many good food spots here. Help me out! I'm in dire need of it.

I love books, mainly because I adore words. I love leafing through the pages, and smell their unusually good scent. Have you tried smelling those old hard-bound books? Weird, but I think it’s one of the best scents in the world (along with sautéed garlic and onion). I want to share you this quote from the movie Inkheart, “Books are adventure. They can murder, mayhem and passion. They love everyone who opens them.”
Just last week, I allowed myself a moment’s luxury as I again considered the joy of taking some pictures in one of my favorite places in school – the CHSS Library. I was with Maxine, my photography buddy! We were studying for an oral exam in New Media class. We actually just came from our Asia and the World Long Exam before that. It was really a haggard day, but that never hindered as from our shutterbug enthusiasm. Here are some of my photos. Enjoy!

It has been a long while since I've used the statement "I'm pissed off!" Now, let me say hello to it again. I'm really mad! I really hate people who are insensitive. Who wouldn't, right? What's worse is, my friend has to be one of them. I've been good to her as much as I could. I don't even try to say bad things to her, because I know she gets hurt that easily. I just hope she sees how hard I try to keep her. If she wants her friends to stay, she should at least try to be careful with our feelings. We should all be sensitive with the things we utter. Keep the ones who care for us away from pain. I wish I can say this to her upfront.

Our teacher for Communication Plan tasked us to create a fictional product or service for our Marketing topic. I don't actually consider it as an assignment or just-another-boring-academic-project, because me and my group mates had fun doing it. We named our company as Jewel Diamonds Salon & Spa. Isn't it lovely? We named it after my group mate, Jewel Rose. She has the only sophisticated name suitable for our "business" among the four of us: Katrina, Maxine and Enrica. How I wish we can build this in the near future. This is what we've planned:

Steaming sensation rushing endlessly within
The breeze blazing this intimate existence
Stars gleam- revealing what needs to be hidden.
Stuck halfway across the world- both stayed
Hands slowly creeping to feel the undying warmth
Glances blurting out the flaming passion disguised
Elemental foes around them- they despised.
His whisper so gentle seemed to kiss her cheeks
Eventually giving in to what the heart seeks
Its heavy beating stirred their emotions
Striking them with this burning attraction.
A gaze they dwelt silently in each other's eyes
Losing all sense of time instead
A light steps out to give glory to eternity
The flickering star says something they could see
Then silence stretched between them
A breath is what keeping them apart
However, this gap never did last long
All of a sudden, his lips caressed hers.
My eyes laid on how the night sky exude romance
I felt the rhythm of their heartbeat
Stumbled upon the remnants of what I had,
Will they bade farewell or meet the new horizon?
+ I am ultimately immersed in the food industry. I live & breathe it, dream & scream about it. I'm so ballistic on discovering new foodspots!
+ Disrespect is tacky. It definitely cramps personal style. Respect: don't leave home without it. It's the best companion you'll ever have.
+ Food for the thought: One key cause of painfulness is our demanding desire. If we try to resist desire, we remove sufferings as well. :-)
+ Most people in our era strive hard for things that have monetary value. We loaf working out errands for free. What we want equates to money.
+ I feel so sad whenever someone asks me to help him/her, but I couldn't because of some circumstances. It kind of frustrates me too much. :-(
+ Don't make fun of your friends always. Not all the time you make them happy with your teasing. Be sensitive. Keep them away from pain. :-)
+ This is one of the hardest part I have to face every morning. I see a closet full of clothes, but I have nothing to wear. I'm confused! :-(
+ We're living in a society where waiting equates to boredom. I envy people before. They don't need to do anything just to get rid of boredom.
+ Remember, respect should be earned not imposed. Bad mouthing people to bring their ego down doesn't make you a better person than them. :-)

The lips are one of the most attractive parts of the body. At least for me. I’m not used to it when I wear nothing for my lips. Since I started applying lip color, I couldn’t help but get addicted to it. Here is my collection of lip colors. My aunt from England gave these all for me. My favorite among these are: Canteloupe (Avon), Rubis (Rouge a Levres), Invincible Kiss Proof (L’Oreal Paris), Tahitian Fire (Avon), Manic Maroon (Boots Nottingham); and the one I bought for myself, ColorStay Ultimate LipColor (Revlon) which can last up to eight hours. Red is the new black!

2.) My Scents
Wouldn’t it be nice if you go out and go home still feeling fresh? I have three perfumes: Lucky You Lucky Brand’s Eau de Toilette Spray, Marks & Spencers’ Glamour Mist and Versus Red Jeans for Women. They all have good and long-lasting scents. These are just so perfect for my vanity. My favorite among these three is Versus Red Jeans. It still smells the same even if I’ve already mixed my blouse with all my other dirty clothes. The scent never goes away that easily.

3.) My Headphones
As what I always say, music keeps me sane. Without it, I’d go berserk. Kidding aside! It’s basically part of my life. I don’t want to live without it. Because I listen to rock music most of the time, I listen to them all by myself. The rest of my family doesn’t like heavy music, that’s why I need headphones to satisfy my desire of sound tripping to some hardcore tunes. I bought this at CD-R King. It’s only 180php. It may be cheap, but the quality is not bad. It comes with a built-in microphone too. I’ve been using it for more than a year already, and it’s still not showing any signs of trouble. God forbid! I don’t have budget for another headphone.
My one and only headphones.
4.) My Fashion Jewelry
I love accentuating my get-up through accessories. I fancy bangles, long-stranded necklaces, dangles and studs. I wear them with the right outfit, of course. For an instance, I don’t wear dangles when I’m wearing a necklace. I match it with studs instead. When I want to flaunt my skin by wearing tank tops, I wear a necklace to somehow tone down the showiness. I also go for simple bling-blings when my out fit has a lot of details. Here is my fashion jewelry box labeled with my pseudonym.
Mystic Nymph Fashion Jewelry Box.
5.) My Planner for 2010-2013
This executive planner from Local Government Academy was supposed to be for my mother. But because she knows that I’m crazy over notebooks and anything to write on, she decided to give this to me. I like it because it helps me keep track of the National Holidays. It also includes all the National Agencies with their addresses and contact information.

Here are some of my favorite things. Share some of yours too. :-)
