Once Upon A Time,

There lived a girl with a not-so-perfect life.
Oh, she was not happy in the confines of her own home.
But her dream was simple: 
To Someday Find her Prince Charming!
Suddenly, out of the blue,
A fairy godmother appeared!
And with a flick of her magic wand,
I unbelievable became a Cinderella!
Yes, I must admit.
I am a hopeless romantic.
Who wouldn't want to find a man that can change you?
Who wouldn't want to have someone that loves you for all of you?
For all those people asking me where I got my Cinderella outfit,
I got this gorgeous light powder-blue gown from SHEINSIDE !
Believe me, this would make you feel royal too,
Ready to waltz your way into any ball.
My Cinderella dream has not been fulfilled yet.
But I have witnessed a Cinderella Story that I can't help but share.
Theirs was not a story of love at first sight;
Theirs was a story of serendipity.
Their fairytale ending was not by chance;
It was a 'Happy Ever After' made by choice.

Ed & Rdee's love story was more than 7 years in the making.
Ed, the sweet & handsome Prince Charming that he is,
Would always escort Rdee, his Cinderella home.
'By the strike of midnight,' he committed to her.
Now that Ed & Rdee are finally married,
There's no more curfew for these two inseparable lovers.
Cheers to forever in each other's arms,
To waking up each day with a smile that warms & calms.

Love changes you in more ways than you can imagine.
Love makes you vulnerable,
Love makes you accept all imperfections,
Love makes you strive to be better for the other.
Weddings make me emotional,
It's simply a 'Happy Ever After' for every Prince & Princess.
I specifically love the personal exchange of vows,
When a lifelong commitment has been sworn & witnessed by many.

Ed's Vow to Rdee
"You are my favorite daydream,
And I have so much of it in my heart.
I look forward to our first morning together,
When I'll see your smile waking me up first thing in the morning.
I promise to learn that favorite cup of coffee of yours,
Walk your two favorite dogs,
And travel with you all around the world
I vow to always hold you with tenderness,
And to live within the warmth of your heart."

Someday, I too, will have my Cinderella Story.
For now, let's celebrate love in its actuality,
Love is encapsulated in John Legend's All of Me,
Like how Ed has found his happiness in Rdee!

"'Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I'll give my all to you
You're my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I'm winning
'Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you, ohoh"

For now, I'll keep dreaming & believing that someday my Prince too will come.
And to that day, my Cinderella Love Story will finally be written!

Fifty Shades of Blue

Oh, I know what you'll say!
"Where is Christian Grey???"
Ladies & Gents, don't be dismayed,
As I'm definitely not here to show you how to get laid!
Shades | Calvin Klein Accessories
Top | Honey Buttons
Now, you've probably guessed,
I'm just here to inspire you to look your best.
So don't you dare go out & look like a mess,
As you might bump into Prince Charming in this Fifty Shades of Blue quest!
Bag | Mango Accessories
I just love every tint and variation of blue.
Why? 'Cause it instantly creates that regal aura too!
I've always associated blue as a color of royalty,
As its hues are captivating & enchanting like the deep blue sea.
Bracelet | Trunk Show
Shoes | Chelsea
Persian Blue. Columbia Blue. Powder Blue. Cornflower Blue. Celestial Blue.
Blizzard Blue. Baby Blue. Imperial Blue. Peacock Blue. Air Force Blue.
Oh! The list could go on and on...
My, my, I didn't realize there's more than fifty shades of blue!

In this day and age,
Most women out there are still looking for Mr. Right.
In fact, some are even searching for the ideal Christian Grey,
Young, handsome, business-savvy and oh-so-charming, what can I say!
Mullet Skirt | Trunk Show
Lo and Behold,
Beneath those charming and enchanting looks,
Is a man with a dark side, with an opposite tide.
Don't you worry, whatever shade, if we are meant to be, we will collide.

Prints when paired with a bright hue will never fail to stand out!
Oh, I just love my off-shoulder top from Honey Buttons,
As it gives a sophisticated twist with a subtle vibe of sexiness too.
Don't you just love the richness of Fifty Shades of Blue?

I'm definitely looking forward for the movie Fifty Shades of Grey,
As it offers something mysterious & intriguing in every single way.
Fashion can tell a story,
But the wearer, that's a different story!
