Book Review: To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

“This is the moment I realize I don’t love him, that I haven’t for a while. That maybe I never did. Because he’s right there for the taking: I could kiss him again; I could make him mine. But I don’t want him. I want someone else. It feels strange to have spent so much time wishing for something, for someone, and then one day, suddenly, to just stop.”

Blurb:

Lara Jean keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her, these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved

When she writes, she can pour out her heart and soul and say all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only.

Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control. 

 

If you’re having a pretty bad week, and you need a book that will make you smile, I highly recommend this book. It’s just one of those books where you can’t help but feel good and warm inside. It’s a fun, charming, and heartfelt read. While I was reading the book and even when I was done, I would smile to myself as I remembered the story. The main plot of the book is about Lara Jean and her complicated love life. However, I think it is the relationship of the three sisters and their family dynamics that make this book something special. Continue reading

Styles and Bites 2016: Food, Flair, Finds


According to their page, Styles and Bites is a “festival of finely curated flavors and fanciful finds for the metro’s pleasure-seeking foodies and shoppers.” Anyone who knows me knows that fashion and food are at the top of the things I love. Naturally, when I was asked by Manila Bazaars to go to the Styles and Bites bazaar last July 2, 2016, I said yes. For only a fee of Php 100, Styles and Bites can be “your urban escape to all things food and fashion.”
