Big Bang : Loser + Bae Bae MV



The Kings are back! With their new single for M series entitled Bae Bae and Loser, Big Bang will show you another reason as to why you should be a fan of them or love them more as a fan. I'm expecting a lot from MADE album which will be released on September.


I am amazed with how unique YG I promoting Big Bang for MADE, they will release a single or singles each month from May to September but the songs are not included in the MADE album. I really admire with YG's marketing strategy, there was a time that 2NE1 promoted 3 songs at the same time and I think no other girl group has done that before.  











I love how opposite the MVs are. You must watch Loser first, you'll end up being emotional with Daesung and TOP's acting. For artists they're really good portraying the essence of the songs, coz maybe because they composed it? If you watch Bae Bae first, you'll end up laughing your ass out for minutes like TOP oppa! Clue : From actor Choi Seung Hyun to Bingu TOP, that kind of opposite.  I was a bit concerned with the 19+ warning for Bae Bae, though it has a lot of hidden  and double meaning, you'll still end up laughing.  TOP is the most handsome bipolar oppa ever!

LOSER

SEUNGRI: Just a loser, loner
A jerk full of hurt
In the mirror, I’m a…

G-DRAGON: Honestly, I’ve never fitted in the world
To me who was alone, love was already forgotten
Love, to me who was alone, was already long forgotten at that time
I’ve had enough of hopeful love songs
You or me are just sad pierrots who play around inside a scenario just as it’s drawn on the path
I came far away
I’m coming home
I want to go back to where I used to be in childhood

TAEYANG: At some point
I started to look at the ground more than the sky
It’s hard to even breathe
I reach out my hand
But no one grabs it

SEUNGRI & G-DRAGON: I’m a loser, loner
A coward who pretends to be strong
Bad gangster
In the mirror I’m..
Just a loser, loner
A jerk full of hurt
Dirty rubbish
In the mirror, I’m a…

TOP: Repeated mistakes with women
Loved for one night but gets tired of it when the sun rises
My selfish pleasure that wasn’t responsible
Sometimes a feeling of everything being ruined
Your precious gesture that you didn’t know when to stop
Now it’s a feeling where there’s no such inspiration or fun
I’m alone on the edge of the precipice
I’m going home
I want to go back to where I used to be
DAESUNG: At some point
I started to fear people staring at me
I’m sick of even crying
I smile
But no one even cares about me

SEUNGRI & TOP: I’m a loser, loner
A coward who pretends to be strong
Bad gangster
In the mirror I’m..
Just a loser, loner
A jerk full of hurt
Dirty rubbish
In the mirror, I’m a…

TAEYANG: I blame the blue sky
I sometimes want to put everything down
I wanna say goodbye
After the wandering of this path finishes
Please, I hope I can close my eyes without regrets

SEUNGRI & TAEYANG: Loser, loner
A coward who pretends to be strong
Bad gangster
In the mirror I’m..
Just a loser, loner
A jerk full of hurt
Dirty rubbish
In the mirror, I’m a…
TAEYANG: I’m a loser
I’m a loser
I’m a loser
I’m a loser

 BAE BAE

G-Dragon:

For selfish me

The guy holding you, the flower that everyone will love
I’m drunk on your scent I get drowsy again
Please don’t discourage me please not you at least

Sticky rice cake ~~~~ (HOO! Bae Bae)
Match our match is
Sticky rice cake ~~~~ (HOO! Bae Bae)

Fashion | Preppy Summer





Preppy Summer was the theme for the last #AbreezaFashionForum,  it was a bit challenging for me since I'm not a fan of of preppy fashion unless you're talking about long sleeves and I don't have a wide range of summer clothes. Yes I do have summer dresses but I don't feel wearing dresses nowadays. So I made a way to make a simple white shirt into preppy looking by wearing a detachable collar.  It was a big thing 3 years ago but that doesn't mean I would not wear it considering it's not "in" as the moment.

White shirt x Brown shorts = instant summer look! It looks clean and fresh. Plus when I add the pearl detachable collar, preppy and dainty instant look.

I am totally inlove with my shoes to the extent I wear it almost everyday. Now I know why small people like platforms, they're made for people who want to add height but prefer comfort-ability. As of the moment,  I'm still searching for my white leatherette platforms but I'm having a hard time since not all Korean brands sell size 25 or 26 and I'm usually size 25, I blame my toes! Any Philippine based online shop that sells platform sneakers?

See you soon and don't forget to click the hype button~

Some benefits of Aloe Vera:

- improves skin's firmness
- lightens skin
- natural moisturizer for dry skin and lips
- treats hair loss, itchy and inflamed skin and dandruff
- restores hair strength and beauty
- repairs dry and damaged hair

More benefits can be found at


I have been hearing about this aloe vera gel rave in beauty bloggers and beauty enthusiasts that it's a must have. Why? Because it's multi purpose. Who doesn't love multi purpose products?  You have at least 10 different ways on how to use it which was shown above.

There's this local store in our city that sells aloe vera gel that she introduced to me but in the end I didn't buy because I have not heard of the brand. I admit I am a bit brand conscious when it comes to skincare and sometimes cosmetics because you know that these branded products only sell good products. I doubt they would compromise their prestige by selling mediocre products. 

Moving on, gosh I really like telling nonsense here. Mian~ So while I was in Ho Chi Minh last year, I was looking for Nature's Republic Aloe Vera gel since there were a lot of good reviews with it but didn't find any so I just bought from another one brand, Skin79 which was the 1st korean brand I have tried though I had a bad experience about it.



Background of the product
Brand: Skin 79
Weight : 300g
Price: Php 400(?)
Made in : Korea
Variant / Flavor: Aloe Vera
Other variants : No other variant available. 


Pros
- multi purpose
- has cooling effect
- instant moisturize

Cons
- unsanitary
- not available locally

4.5/5 
Even though it's a bit unsanitary because you need to dip your fingers into the tub to apply more product and even though it's not available locally aside from korean cosmetic stores, the fact that it's multi purpose beats all the cons of this product. I consider it as an essential in my skincare stash since I do get super dry skin every now and then. I use it on my legs or feet after I scrub off all the dead skin cells to keep them moisturized. Also on my face whenever I want to have a face mask with cooling effect.  In addition,  I also use it before applying BB cream if my face is super dry for instant moisturized face.

Repurchase?
Definitely.  Actually I bought 2 tubs of this gel but from Missha this time.

A must have for those people who likes multi purpose products.  It's a natural product and aloe vera is a well known nowadays in cosmetics and skincare. With the benefits listed above, who doesn't want to purchase this amazing product?

Event | An Original Dapper with David Guison



This month's #AbreezaFashionForum featured an American brand which was formed way back in 1950's that sells dapper clothes, Original Penguin. The speaker was the brand ambassador himself, David Guison, the famous blogger behind dgmanila.com.


He talked about the brand's brief history and how the famous logo which is Pete the Penguin was born. David also mentioned that 1950's changed the way Americans dress, they became more liberated in a way they express themselves through their clothes. 55 golf shirt was famous during that time for it's functionality.


Famous Hollywood celebrities like Jake Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt and Matthew McConaughey are image models for the brand. Whereas Manny Pacquiao,  Anne Curtis, Teng Brothers and Daniel Padilla are some of the local celebrities who wear Original Penguin.



David admitted he was a huge fan of the brand before he became the ambassador of it, he said his fashion was inspired by his dad so sometimes they end up having the same clothes. Since summer is here, he shared what are must haves for summer fashion like tank tops, shirts, polo shirts, short and long sleeved button downs, shorts like chino shorts and swim shorts. On the other hand for the accessories; brogues, mandals, colored watches, duffel bags, braided brown belts and straw hats were suggested. 


It's mostly applicable to men's fashion but I think most of the items mentioned above can also be applied to women's summer fashion. He stressed that summer is the perfect time to experiment with colors. And I'm a little but guilty on that one. He said he tries to avoid black at all costs so he's into navy blue during summer season.


David emphasized to dress for yourself not for anyone else. Stick to your style and have fun.



Original Penguin is located at 2nd Floor Abreeza Mall.

Some of my favourites from Original Penguin's 2015 Summer/Spring Collection.  You can view all the looks here.

EXO : Call Me Baby MV + Exodus Album Download

EXO's recent album entitled Exodus is I think a bittersweet moment to EXO-Ls. They're happy that the boys are back with their new album so they can see them more often with their promotions but it's also a wake up call to those people who are fans of OT12 that EXO will never be the same. As of the moment, I feel I'm not deserving to be called EXO-L because I'm still butt hurt about the lawsuit which I think every fan has the right to feel hurt or whatnot and I'm not in the position to judge other fans. Personally I still support EXO but not like before wherein I watch almost all their weekly performances, guestings and update myself almost everyday which I recently found out was unhealthy. I will support their album and say congratulations to them if they win which I think is possible with all the EXO-L fans out there.

The delusional me is still hoping to hear Kris' husky rap and Luhan's angel like voice in their new album which I think is normal for fans who like Krishan so much like me.
I was excited on EXO's new album since I find EXO as a promising group and they are working hard to fill the gap that Krishan made. Weeks ago, I heard EXO will have a song entitled Call me Daddy and I was like waaaaaaaait. It sounds so kinky and inappropriate for underaged fans good thing that was just a rumor and call me daddy was changed into call me baby. Call me Daddy reminds me so much of Suho while Call me Baby reminds me of Sehun.






credits to: SMTOWN
Anyways, the song is addicting as usual and I'm happy that you can hear more lines from members who used to have 1-2 lines in their previous albums. My comments would be available tonight because for now, I'll spazz how hot the boys looks esp. Tao, Chanyeol and Lay. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
.
Buy your albums at koreancravings.com,  she sells affordable kpop and jpop albums and her service is the best I have tried. Exodus is Php 859 each but when you buy EXO K and EXO M album, it's only Php1640. The cut off was last March 25 but just contact her because usually she orders extra copies. Visit her site and don't be hesitant to message her, she's nice and will answer all your OC concerns.
