The Other Side: Kylie Jenner

Currently embracing the wild spirit. Don't think it will ever go outside but it shall stay here - safe and sound. I am so obsessed with Kylie Jenner as of late. She has grown up so much in style, beauty and *ahem* ... sex department. I have been seeing pictures of her controversial plastic surgery lips - so they say - flooding all over the internet. While haters spite, i, on the other hand decided to channel her gorgeous bad ass lips. And, i think i could definitely use a face armour too. So, here's me with a full blown lips and yes, it's all lipstick - totally natural! It's definitely a fun look to play with but i don't think i will ever bring out this look cause i'm SHY and a chicken at heart. Sometimes i wonder where did the once carefree Melly go? Oh well, i guess it's just age catching up with the system for all things proper and correct :)

Trying really hard to maintain composure here

This is what i'm wearing!

A Depresso Sunday

Sundays are usually lazy and perfect for nothingness. No stress, no worries. Okay, i lied. There is no
such thing as zero worries especially in the adulthood department. So, i will rephrase that. Carefree Sundays with terms and conditions apply:

1. Stress free hours not more than 7 hours
2. Strong imagination is strictly mandatory 
3. All worries will be kept in the head with the help of an imaginary padlock box
4. Listen to only happy songs with zero lyrics - instrumental or foreign songs that are alien to your dictionary. I'd say go for Ratatat's Lapland or Alfonso Santisteban (Scroll down to listen to them!)
5. Lastly, don't give a sh*t about anything

With all that said, my Sunday went pretty smooth until my encounter with bad coffee. Yes, my coffee didn't understand me very well today. My hefty Fourteen bucks Cosan Iced Latte depressed my day further let alone my extremely short weekend. It was awfully bitter and it's not that i hate bitter coffee to begin with. In fact, i have always liked my coffee bitter but this was just BAD. I guess the beautiful cosy interior made up for it and nope, i did not complain to the barista who made my coffee. I shook it off. Why ruin someone else's day right?

Anyway, enough of the bitterness. Let's indulge in all goodness starting with our ears, shall we?

Where Did The Young Romance Go?

If there was one place where young romance truly exists, it would be through the lens of the ever talented Wes Anderson. I have never seen such pure young love in this time or maybe because I haven't heard of any yet. As a huge fan of Wes Anderson works, his movies have never failed to spark much interest and love for me. So far, not yet. I just got off watching Moonrise Kingdom and i must say it is one of the most original young love story i have ever seen. Maybe not original because some parts of the movie contain familiar elements of randomness (usually found in comedies) and a bit of Bollywood play where you find his characters dancing to the background music in most of his films. But, these familiar elements are very rare for movies nowadays. Directors now tend to focus on cutting edge graphics and angles which are very one focus concentrating either on sex parts, explosions, 'clever' hollow dialogues and the very often predictable man-on-man fist punching scenes. With that said, i guess the original essence of this movie in the context of classic romance living in the 21st century is somewhat valid.Well, at least to me. Now I only wonder whether are there such stories living in this time of age. If you haven't watched it yet, torrent it! Before i jet, here are some really cute pics i stumbled on tumblr from fans alike.
