Bensimon Manila, With Love From Paris

I'm not the usual sneaker type of person. I've been thinking of getting new ones, but I'm very picky with which ones to get because I still wanted to look more Parisian laid-back chic and less skater boy. So on the day French sneaker brand Bensimon invited a couple of stylists and bloggers over for its launch, I got excited about getting a new pair and thought I'd wear something youthful (what's more young-at-heart than a crop top?) and feminine (what's more girly than a voluminous skirt?) just to make sure I won't look like Avril Lavigne during her Skater Boi days*.

This Home is Temporary

I haven't been posting updates as much as I should lately, because I've been busy preparing for something big... and I didn't want to talk about it until it's becoming really real (as in, not just in my head.) I'm going to New York next year!!!! :) I'll give more details about this in a separate post.

Now that I've gotten my visa -- yet another miraculous story waiting to be told -- my trip is all becoming a concrete reality. Yes, even after months of other people accepting that I'm going away and being very excited for me, I've just recently come to terms with it. So I finally contacted the broker my friend recommended me months ago and I told him what I was looking for. I was sitting on the floor of my walk-in closet (funnily, WiFi is limited to this area in my room), looking for apartments online when the realization hit me hard: my NY quarters -- bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and all -- will most likely be smaller than my current bedroom. Gasp. How spoiled of me, huh? What prompted this thought was counting all my blessings...
