Fashion! Put It All On Me ➝  Kristian Aadnevik f/w 2014-2015[2/2]

indiohistorian:

It was like the Japanese Occupation all over again. The more atrocities Marcos committed, the more Filipinos he tortured and killed—the more joined the underground. It became a matter of honor to do something against the oppressor… Filipinos in tremendous numbers found they were not afraid to die for freedom. The country became one vast concentration camp—except where men dared to be free… Elsewhere rose a cacophony of voices, like the exhalations of a parched earth at the first patter of rain, a steady outpouring of sound that would grow to a din with the passing of the seasons. It would explode one night in an avenue named Epifanio de los Santos. The explosion would be louder than the one that brought down Plaza Miranda a decade and a half before, echoing as it would not only across the land but across the globe. It would happen one night, when the stars were bright and the world was still. A massing of nuns and whores, priests and beggars, merchants and medicine men, the sick and the whole, the sellers of the cures of the body and the sellers of cures for the soul. One peaceful night, the ax would fall with a suddenness that would surprise even those who swung it. There would be no resistance from the Palace. The vaunted armies of martial law would evaporate as fast as the vapors in the night with the coming of day…. Martial law would be over.

- Conrado de Quiros, journalist and writer, in an excerpt in his book “Dead Aim: How Marcos Ambushed Philippine Democracy

In celebration of the 28th anniversary of the peaceful revolution of 1986 that ended an oppressive dictatorship in the Philippines, to the shock of the entire world.

Some of the photos we got back from our engagement photo shoot!
(Part 1)


Kyle purposed to me with the golden snitch so we wanted to incorporate it into some of our photos. We are both Harry Potter lovers and are pulling elements to create our chic “Harry Potter” themed wedding.

I’m currently working on sewing the 5 bridesmaid’s dresses. Once they are done I can start on my wedding dress, the ties, and the 5 flower girl dresses. I’m also working on the flowers and a few other things for the wedding. Kyle is taking care of all of the wedding notices, saves-the-date, and invitations.

When I’m close to finishing a book, I always have to bring another one with me, because what if I finish reading and I have no other book to start???

Always

I really need to sort out my reading priorities. I’m reading a few books now and I have zillions of other books I desperately want to read. Bibliophiles need more than 24 hours in a day to get all of our reading done!
