Marc Johns (and his not so) Serious Drawings

As I was scrolling through my dashboard on Tumblr, I came across this awesome drawing that really caught my attention;

Image

ever since I saw it that day, it immediately became my life motto.

I searched for the artist right away and I ended up on his site!

Have you ever experienced those moments when you see something for the first time and you immediately think “Wow that is so relevant I can’t really explain it but it’s like my whole life’s described/written there“? Going through his drawings were is one of those moments for me… He makes really interesting works of art that I find really amusing and although they’re simple, they’re all definitely worth a million words.

Image

Marc Johns’ work has been everywhere apparently… From New York to Athens to Vancouver, his work’s been exhibited in a lot of places!! His works were also featured in several publications like Newsweek, National Geographic, and The New York Times.

He makes these things with pens and watercolour and… wow just look at these and these will explain everything that I’m trying to say hahaha

Image

Marc Johns is one of my favourite artists now 🙂 🙂

Image

He also has a book! It’s out of stock everywhere though 😦 BUT, try checking out other bookstores and online shops! **it’s quite pricey so yeah**

Make sure to go and check out Marc Johns Serious Drawings!!

Allison Harvard and Dominique Reighard for bench/

America’s Next Top Model has been one of those shows that I always watch every week. And last year’s cycle, ANTM Cycle 17 All – Stars, is one of my favourites because well, most of my favourite models were there!!

Image

Allison Harvard and Dominique Reighard were two of the models that I would vote for if we can actually vote for them. And a few days ago, Bench/ announced that both of them will be part of the Bench/ family!!

Image

My brother’s been in love with Allison Harvard for as long as I can remember and I’ve always wanted to meet both of them or at least see them in real life so when they tweeted that they’ll come here, I immediately thought of ways to get there. Our dad told is that we’ll go to Batangas last Friday and stay there for a night just when they tweeted that they’ll be at Trinoma! When our dad called we told him about it and then he said maybe we can move the trip and go to Trinoma on that day instead.

So yes we were able to go to Trinoma and we were able to see (and somewhat) meet Domnique and Allison!!! AAAAAAHHH

The venue was in front of Bench/ and it was kind of small… There were a lot of people and it got crowded. We waited for a while and when they finally arrived everyone just started pushing and screaming and then it got a little out of hand and then the bouncers and guards started pushing us and it got messy… for a while there I was in front but then sigh, they made us leave. But before that I got some really messy photos haha (also because I used my Blackberry and it’s not the best when it comes to photos)

That’s when I transferred because the guards made us move and this was the closest I can get haha (that’s behind the stage by the way)

Image

Image

Image

That’s when they were about to leave, I wasn’t able to take a photo of Allison cause I ran to where they’re gonna exit already

Image

Some of my friends won Meet & Greets and they had this! (I wasn’t able to take a photo of Dominique’s oops)

Image

All is well though because I was able to make Dominique sign my planner (this was when I transferred behind the stage) 🙂

THANK YOU BENCH/

Image

Yesterday was definitely a fun day. I was with my brother and his friends haha. We ate in Taco Bell and then we roamed around afterwards.

When we went to Powerbooks I saw this omg

Image

Yes that’s I Spy DIY Style and they actually have a copy!!! They said that was the last copy and only 3 or 2 copies arrived so I immediately reserved this copy.

Yesterday was definitely a day I will always remember 🙂 🙂

Ever since I knew about tie-dyes and dip-dyes (for clothes… imagine tie-dyeing your hair omg) I’ve made it one of my life’s mission to find dyes in this country. I honestly thought I wouldn’t be able to find some but one day my friend sent me a text that says she found dyes in National Bookstore so last Saturday I went to NBS at Market! Market! and bought several packets immediately!! Now I can do tie-dye and dip-dye!! (I feel like a D.I.Y. freak now but whatever D.I.Y. is fuuunnn)

Image

AND I went to Fully Booked High Street and I saw this!!

Image

That’s a book called FUCK The World and it’s seriously very entertaining. It’s filled with random signs from different places and they changed some words to “fuck” so that the definition will change too. Here are some pages from the book:

Image

And coincidentally, it was “Free Comic Book Day” in Fully Booked so we got a free comic book and since I lost one of my favourite books (I know that’s weird but I seriously don’t know where my old copy went) I bought another one! (It’s The Carrie Diaries, it’s like my life plan written right there on that book haha)

Image

That day was pretty productive.. 🙂

Do It Yourself

So last night, I was looking through the March 2012 issue of Candy ( http://www.candymag.com/ ) . And as I was about to put it down, I saw their list of “All The Best-est!”, this list shows all the great new websites and blogs that you should visit and among them is I Spy D.I.Y.

http://www.ispydiy.com/

Image

I’ve always been into D.I.Y.’s and as of right now, I’m running a little short on money so that means no clothes or anything at all 😦 BUT with D.I.Y. projects, you can have new clothes and accessories for a waaay cheaper price! PLUS you’ll get to customize it! And in this website, I learned that you can do so much more with a simple cookie cutter or shoelaces or all of the things you wouldn’t have thought of!

Image

See those things above? Those are all D.I.Y. projects by Jenni Radosevich, the owner of I Spy D.I.Y. and one of the most amazing people I’ve ever encountered (on the world wide web haha). It’s amazing what you can do and the possibilities are endless!! This website brought back my love for Do It Yourself projects and I (kind of) already started again.

So when you’re short on ca$h and you are dying to get new stuff on your closet or if you’re just bored or if you want to have fun but you don’t know how, always remember that Do It Yourself projects are always at the tip of your fingers. 🙂

Potatoes

It’s been years since I started asking random band dudes weird questions… and for the first time one of the answered!! And it’s George Craig!!

George Craig is the vocalist of One Night Only, one of my favourite bands (you should check them out, they’re amazing!!).

I asked him one of my weird questions… which is if he like potatoes.

I can’t believe I asked him that out of all the things I could have asked him hahahaha

But nonetheless, I CANNOT BELIEVE HE ANSWERED IT!!!!!
