2008 Aries Horoscope and Monthly/Yearly Astrology Forecasts

Between you and me, I’m not really a big astrology fan. Remember the days of Miss Cleo? Like her hired phone “psychics”, I have a feeling some of these “astrologers” are nothing but excellent wordsmiths. Sure they have a way with words but how accurate are their predictions? I know horoscopes are for entertainment purposes only…

Well, thanks to Astrologyzone, it was only until last year that I got into the whole horoscope and astrology hoo-ha. Susan Miller’s forecasts are quite spot-on. I kid you not. Some are dead accurate, a few are near-misses but still. I also LOVE that super cool celebrity astrology site, AstroCrack.

So what’s in store for Aries in 2009? I browsed a few astrology sites and took some of the interesting bits and pieces. Click click click!

Voguing it.

Voguing it.

I have a dilemma. I have 24-48 hours to produce NEW high-resolution photos that represent me and my blog in a nutshell. For Vogue. Which edition? I can't tell. How will I achieve this when it's New Year's Eve tomorrow? What to wear? Where to shoot? What about the hair? I have absolutely no idea but lemme tell you… it truly is such an honor. It's every little girl's dream so rest be assured I'm gonna bend over backwards, flip and do cartwheels (figuratively not literally) over the next day or so because it's for Vogue. I'll let you know when it's out on the newsstands.

Unfortunately, it's not as easy as standing in front of a mirror doing a Myspace shot. LOL

A Lovely Dinner

A Lovely Dinner

The yuletide season is usually the busiest period for most folks. It’s that time of the year when every single day is brimming with countless engagements and celebrations. Some people escape the crazy festivities by going on vacation and traveling somewhere. I once made the mistake of spending the holidays in Paris on my own a few years ago. Would I do it again? Probably not. But if you give me 50,000 euros, then perhaps I’ll reconsider. Hah! But yes.. although I had so much fun and memories in beautiful Paris, I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that Christmas is best spent WITH your loved ones regardless of where they are in the world.

Speaking of which, my friends Martin and Yoshiko are here in Manila once again. We had a lovely dinner the other night at Zuni.

Essential Monday Reads

Just two more days left. How are you guys coping? It's been crazy around here. I'm just about to go to my grandma's.

To take your mind off the holiday stress, here are a few links you may want to check out.

  • Shopbop just updated their winter markdowns up to 70% off. Stock up on cold weather essentials and for those of you in tropical climes, shop for accessories! Shopbop ships anywhere in the world and if you live in the USA, you get to enjoy free shipping. Go! [Shopbop]
  • I tend to wish for the impossible but you know what they say – if you don't ask, you'll never get it. Here's my holiday wishlist published over at JC Report. They asked some of their favourite members of the international fasheen pack what they desire this holiday season. The best things in life are always non-material and all items (except for one) on my wishlist reflect that so check it out. And if you guys know Daphne or Aliona, tell them I adore them so much. [JC Report]
  • Who knew my hot papi, photographer JD Ferguson,
    doesn't drink? He hasn't touched anything in fourteen years! Now if
    only the same could be said about me and my cigarettes. I really need
    to stop. I love JD and so should you! [Starworks]
  • Are you taking advantage of the great British Pound to Dollar exchange rates? Koh Samui in London has a fabulous sale featuring frocks from Tsumori Chisato, Marchesa, Chloe and more. [Koh Samui]
  • The lovely folks over at COACD
    named their Top 25 Faces for 2008. It's nice to see my gurl Ali Michael
    on number four. I asked her what's the view like from the top of the
    list and she said COACD saved the best for last. LOL. April Fools' Day
    must have come four months early or eight months late. It's funny
    because I have this plan of conspiring with an agency to put me up on
    their website just for fun for April Fools' next year (and tell my
    readers 'y'all won't believe it but I'm now a non-werqing mo' but it looks like it came early. Just kidding. I'm truly honored! Thanks. You guys rock! [Confesions of a Casting Director]
  • Hop on the spiral bitch! If you're a big fan of art, fashion and amazing, inspirational photography, be sure to add my friend Ryan's blog on your blog feed. [Hop on the Spiral Bitch!]

Last but not the least, designers Michael Angel and Jaeha would like to wish y'all a happy & festive holiday season.

Hair

Jesus bajeezus. I just had a haircut like two or three weeks ago and my hair is long again. Ugh. I was supposed to get a haircut earlier this morning but I got up late so I missed my appointment.

Bryanboy at Oryx Magazine, Qatar

I may have my feet on the ground right at this very moment but ladies and gays, I've invaded the friendly skies! With a monthly readership of 1 MILLION people, Oryx is Qatar Airway's inflight magazine and they featured several fashion bloggers this month. Yay. I hope all the oil sheiks and their glamazon wives swilling champagne and feasting on caviar at First Class take notice of me. Adopt me please and buy me beautiful nice things from Villa Moda. No wait. Buy me VILLA MODA. In Kuwait. As in the entire store!!!!! Just kidding.

Point and Shoot

Point and Shoot

There are so many things to blog about my trip to Kuala Lumpur so I’m gonna save blogging the shows for the last. 

Speaking of shows, the schedule on the first day of Malaysia International Fashion Week wasn’t as packed so upon the recommendation of one of the girls who worked there (imagine my surprise because I was expecting to do the shoots later towards the week), I skipped the afternoon to go to a shoot by one of Malaysia’s bright young photographers, Vince Paul Young, for two Malaysian magazines, NewTide and New Icon.
