Yay! Round 1 - assignments, mid-sems, presentations and whatnot's down! *happy jig*

... Now for round 2 - exam prep. Lol XD

Thank goodness today's macro policy test was open book >.< Even then, I had to place hope on my lucky stars and just choose a,b, c or d. I'm so going to flail in finals =_=

Y'know, I don't ever read literature anymore during term time. My brain can't take the extra effort these days. Assignments drain 85% of those little grey cells.

Believe it or not, this girl's starting to read chic lit. Yes, CHIC LIT. That goodness-forbid-gives-me-shivers genre XD

Most of the back cover blurbs still make me go "wth!", "..... gahhhh!", "gosh, people actually like reading this??", and many many more colourful expressions. Hehe.

.... but, there's actually quite a few that are less painful to read! Hip hip hooray! ^^

‘I Can Relate to Ghosts of Girlfriends Past‘

Ooo-la-la! The gals are going to love this new one from Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Garner. Teehee *evil*

It's like the perfect 'get-back' situation ever, for anyone who has at some point had mental pictures of the gruesome kind about the oh-so-smug guy who thinks he's worth a million bucks.

Well, I know my naughty side sure does have fantasies of those sort XD

Moving on, this is how the story of the movie goes:

Celebrity photographer Connor Mead (Matthew McConaughey) loves freedom, fun and women…in that order. A committed bachelor with a no-strings policy, he thinks nothing of breaking up with multiple women on a conference call while prepping his next date.

Connor’s brother Paul is more the romantic type. In fact, he’s about to be married. Unfortunately, on the eve of the big event, Connor’s mockery of romance proves a real buzz-kill for Paul, the wedding party and a houseful of well wishers—including Connor’s childhood friend Jenny (Jennifer Garner), the one woman in his life who has always seemed immune to his considerable charm.

Just when it looks like Connor may single-handedly ruin the wedding, he gets a wake-up call from the ghost of his late Uncle Wayne (Michael Douglas), the hard-partying, legendary ladies man upon whose exploits Connor has modeled his lifestyle. Uncle Wayne has an urgent message for his protégé, which he delivers through the ghosts of Connor’s jilted girlfriends—past, present and future—who take him on a revealing and hilarious odyssey through a lifetime of failed relationships.

Together, they will discover what turned Connor into such a shameless player and whether he has a second chance to find – and this time, keep – the love of his life.

Anyway, the first thing that popped into mind was:

It seriously hurts a lot, especially when you know the person you've given your love and trust to has cheated on you.

And I can definitely relate to Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, because I've been in love with a guy that couldn't seem to have a place in his heart for only one gal.

In the end though, while revenge may be sweet, the most satisfying ending would be to have a repentant heart-breaker =P

I guess romance stories about reformed rakes are bestsellers for a reason, lol =D

Watching the trailer, some parts of the movie make me go "aww... so sweet", which I think is what will make Ghosts of Girlfriends Past a heart-warming show.

After all, while revenge may be sweet, everyone dreams of a happily ever after ^^

Adorable, no? ^^

Thanks to my aunty-godma, I've got one too! <3

According to this site:

A fruity floral fragrance. Colorful, tasty and sweet.
With top notes of pineapple, raspberry, cranberry and blackberry.
With mid notes of candied violet, pear blossom and sugar rose.
With base notes of lollipop accord, hinoki wood and crystal amber.

It's definitely sweet-ish & slightly musky, without smelling 'over-ripe' though.

The latter is best avoided (L'Occitane's Cherry fragrance >.< ) if you're not too keen on attracting unwanted attention from bugs.
For daily-wear basis, I love Garden of creation! ^^

Best of all, it's a budget perfume! And check out the rainbow hues on the bottle XD

Hehe... affordable, looks good and smells great. What is there to dislike ya? =)

*KF likes this one too. Whee!*

Sad thing is, I got mine as a Christmas gift from abroad. Haven't seen any local retailers stocking Creation Lamis perfumes =(
