My Own ANTM-All-Stars!

I've been an  avid fan of America's Next Top Model since the first season... I must proudly say I have my own bet in all the 17 seasons. They 17th season was made into an all-star season but I didn't quite like most of the cast... they just seem catty for me but not quite tasteful... Especially that Angelea and that ghetto Bianca... and that fake Alexandria. Eew. What a waste of airing time. I just find it so one note to bring ghetto girls and predictably cause some cat fights.
Anyways, just for the fun of it... I'd like to think of my own ANTM All-Star Cast from Season 1-16... It is such a delight to make my own roster and look back at the fierce gorgeous of models of the past seasons of ANTM Era.
Let's Start? Haha~

1. Elyse Sewell, ANTM Cycle 1
Elyse Sewell
I still believe Elyse is the most successful ANTM Model of all time! She has established herself pretty well in terms of branding. Audience nowadays don't like ditsy models so much anymore. Elyse is a beauty with BRAINS! She's a pre-med and a linguistics double major graduate before entering the show. She may seem arrogant and anti-social. But it adds up to her character and she could morph into Asian-looking, Jewish looking, and just be very androgynous. They don't find models like her nowadays. 

Androgynous chameleon. I just simply love her.

Shandi Sullivan
2. Shandi Sullivan, ANTM Cycle 2  
is the geek chick! she really morphs into character with every shoot. But for me, Yoanna House really bagged the win that season but Shandi was really good too!

3. Amanda Swafford, ANTM Cycle 3 
The Legally blonde ice queen beauty. Cycle 3 is the most colorful and my ulitmate favorite! They went to Tokyo for their trip and they were all so colorful! Amanda really rocked that season and I still wonder why she never made it to top two... It should have been her and Yaya!
Amanda Swafford

Yaya Da Costa
4.Yaya Da Costa,ANTM Cycle 3
Yaya is the African-American Beauty with such class. She's a dancer and an Ivy-Leaguer Student of Brown University back then. She may have been arrogant a little... but she aced most of her photos all-through-out the season.

Kahlen Rondot

5.Kahlen Rondot, ANTM Cycle 4
Naima Mora came close neck and neck with Kahlen and she played a good fight. She is consistent and aced her shoots. May be a bit more personality? But her body, runway walk and modelling skills is truly an ALL-STAR TOP MODEL!

Nik Pace
6.Nik Pace,ANTM Cycle 5
Nik I think is an underrated model. I think her chameleon ethnicity is one of a kind but I still wonder why that mediocre Nicole won that season. It should have been Nik or Jayla.
Joannie Dodds
7.Joannie Dodds,ANTM Cycle 6
Blondes I think are the almost-had-it-but-not most of the past seasons. Joannie is one of the "Miss Perfect" Top Model but never bagged in the end. But she is interesting somehow because she's good. She was never in the bottom two all her season but may be being "too perfect" doesn't make a top model. But nonetheless she's good.

Anchal Joseph
8.Anchal Joseph,ANTM Cycle 7
I just love variety of ethnicity in the show. Anchal is so beautiful but she lacks confidence. But her beauty is very interesting. It gives the show some variety and different face to offer.

I have no bet in Cycle 8 they all seem lack-luster for me and that's why Jaslene bagged the TOP MODEL win for that season

Heather Kuzmich
9. Heather Kuzmich, ANTM Cycle 9
Heather is unique because she's psychologically really awkward because she is autistic. She is diagnosed with Asperger's disease. But nonetheless she performed well. She never stopped looking beautiful. 

10. Fatima Siad, ANTM Cycle 10
The "Young Iman" is a true-blue TOP MODEL ALL-STAR for me! You don't find model like her beauty like the legendary "Iman". Her skin is so flawless!
Fatima Siad

11. Marjorie Conrad, ANTM Cycle 11
OMG! Next to Elyse I think Marjorie is a natural born TOP MODEL! Her quirky poise gives her this unique charm. Plus she's French! I love this androgynous pixie girl! 
Her nervous character persona makes the show more interesting even!
Marjorie Conrad
12. Alison Harvard, ANTM Cycle 12
Only Alison from the airing ANTM ALL-STAR CYCLE was the girl I am really rooting for. I think she is really unique and really quirky! Her eyes is so interesting to look at and she has a deeper sense of "high art" because she's an artiste! I hope she wins this season. She should have won her season I believe so because she's so unforgettable!
Allison Harvard
Jennifer An
13. Jeniffer An, ANTM Cycle 13
Hooray for Asians! Hooray for petite girls! Among the few number of Asian ANTM contestants, I liked her face the most because she really looks so purely Asian... She's not slutty looking and she has this grace in her that brings out the beauty more. 

Ren Vokes
14. Ren Vokes, ANTM Cycle 14
This edgy beauty is so fierce too bad she didn't want to be in the show during her cycle. Who won't be wanting to go home in that season everyone seems so catty and just full of fights. But Ren really has this natural model-bad-ass type of feel. If shhe could have wanted it more... She's really gonna go  long way.

Kayla Ferrel
15. Kayla Ferrel,ANTM Cycle 15
Not because she is a lesbian that I chose her. But because she has a very elegant face. I fell in love with her Vivienne Westwood portrayal.

16. Hannah Jones, ANTM Cycle 16
Sweet Hannah makes my list just because she's so sweet. I don't like that she cries so much though. But she takes very nice high fashion photos. She and Alison should be good friend because they both seem sweet haha!

Hannah Jones
Now that's my list! I wonder who's your on bets if you have your own all-stars! I want Elyse-All-Original to win haha But they are all worthy contenders for me. they are all beautiful!

Tracy Birthday Wish List as Requested by Taka LOL

I was waiting for Taka's text last nigh if he's about to sleep or if he is still alive haha. Oddly, he said, good night and he's safe home and... write a blog about your birthday wishlist so randomly haha! So RANDOM! I thought he was druck or something but he said he isn't haha he said he just wants to know! It's a funny anecdote too haha I think I am infecting my boyfriend of my randomness haha!

So I dedicate this blog to my funny boyfriend who asked me this list. don't worry don't feel pressured to get me anything... writing this alone makes me happy! Haha! I will write everything I could think of now haha!

Let me start off this first and foremost...

I want LV whahaha! I alway make fun and ask this even if I'm not serious! Haha! But this is the style i really like in LV Annie GM in Monogram Multicolor hahaha! So specific! I like this because it's colorful! WHAHAHA I laugh so hard just writing this! Haha!

I also want this style in LV... LV-M92647  Louis Vuitton Alma Monogram Multicolore M92647

Hahaha okay Let's be serious now... If anyone of you would like to give me gifts for my birthday... this is my birthday wishlist of my quirky and grandiose things haha! Haha serious?! haha I'm just having fun haha

1) I want a Polaroid camera! But the authentic Polaroid is hard to find nowasays and the film is also hard to find... Good thing Fuji made a modern version of Polaroid Camera it's called: Fujifilm INSTAX! The MINI version looks so cute there's pink camera but the WIDE has better photos! Of course if anyone intends to give me this please give me a film too haha! I like the wide one though. I wonder how much is this haha if I get more work I will get this for myself haha!

I wish there's other colors for the wide one too!
But the MINI has nice colors haha!

2) Eau de Toilette
I am a sucker for scents and my most favorite scent in the world is GAP Heaven but I rarely get to find it. I actually have a roster of perfumes I love and I always give this to myself when I really feel I have worked so hard. Haha. Okay here's the roster of photos haha

GAP Heaven
Brings back teenager memories haha
I am not sure if this was the one I like or the clear one but I like all Issey Miyake scents!

3) Pop Art Love

This bag was stolen from me two years ago and I was really sad to lose it... It's my favorite bag because it's so artsy and I use everywhere. I dunno where to get this though...
It's Mona Lisa Tote Bag by Andy Warhol by Loop

4) 2012 Planner

Mommy Calendar for Atreyu's School Needs!

I am such a scatter brain because of my juggling act of being a mom, freelancing, meeting with clients. I really need a decent planner. Please give me PLANNERS! LOL! Haha I need one of each function.

I would need something for my Mommy Duties above all! I want this Calendar because Atreyu can see and write his schedules too while I post it on a wall at home.

But I think I would still need something I could bring anywhere. I saw this cute Kimmidoll Diary Calendar in a bookstore... And it looks okay... Well, as long as it has a big space for writing I think I would like... Ohhh I remember there's this Cath Kidston Planner I saw and it's very functional and colorful!! Well just scroll down to see what I'm talking about! I really need this! Haha!
Cute Planner

8) Via Airmail

Look at my iphone case airmail!
I'm really really fascinated with Airmail Prints now. So I'm falling in love with anything AirMail design. I just love seeing it and that red and blue lines. I'm even thinking of a design inspired by it haha! if you wanna make me happy this would do! Haha

I just love Tokyo! Needless to say! But Everything about it I'm so excited to see! I can probably walk around homeless and feel happy in Tokyo haha!

I was supposed to come last year to support Happy Andrada but I was a prisoner of my TV job then. It was one of my greatest regrets last year and i told myself this year I'm really coming back for Tokyo!

Incidentally... Taka will be transferred in Tokyo in October, too! So universe made it easy for me to be in one destination in Japan to see my friends, watch the 49th Japan Fashion Design Contest in Meguro and see my BF haha! So convenient! 

Definitely time would run so fast I'm so sure when I come to Tokyo! I should plan out my trip very so I can seize my trip! I have so many people to meet up with! I wanna do so much too! By that, i think i should write this blog and plan out the things I wanna do! Haha! This is gonna be so much fun haha!

Odaiba Ferris Wheel

I'm not actually a Ferris Wheel person I am actually scared of slow rides. But i think the view would be great for pictures haha! Plus I want those photo shots this girl in the picture has. I've never been in a Ferris Wheel ride abroad because I am scared of it haha this will be my first time if I get to do it on my trip! haha! 

Tokyo Tower view from Ropponggi Hills
#5) Ropponggi Hills ~ I didnt get to see Tokyo Tower when I came last time, of course i passed by it coming from the airport. I want to see it this time and I've read somewhere that the best say to see the Tokyo Tower is in Ropponggi Hills

#6) Nakagin Capsule Tower ~ this has been my fascination eversince... I like mod-designs and this architecture is spectacular. This is closed down already I think but I would certainly hope I get to see this cool building. This is just a classic avant-garde architecture!!! I hope I could find it though... I read it's near Ginza! I'll take a picture of myself here and I wanna look like Judy Jetson haha! 

#7) Reversible Destiny Lofts in Mikata, Tokyo ~ This really took my interest! I think Taka and Atreyu will like to see this place too! Imagine a house built like a plaground haha! I should take a picture here!! This is really a must see for me! But hell! it costs $700,000 USD per unit! Hahaha! It's a treasure!

WOW! Playground house!!
#8) Oh this is my favorite hobby doing overseas~ Grocery strolling!! it's so fun because Taka also like to do that! I'm so excited just to stroll around the grocery in Tokyo with Taka because we always find something interesting to laugh at and check out!
I wanna take pictures and check out everything. It's just fun! It's actually my dream date haha I am a weird girl but I'm happy I found another weird person to share it with haha! 

#8.1) Daiso shopping is fun too! haha! 

#9) Harajuku on Sundays ~ I swear I'm gonna dedicate 100 shots just for this day haha! I want to see this in real life! When I came to Tokyo I flew back to Manila on a Sunday and never got to see this! This must be a colorful sight to see!
#9.1) of course Omotesando, Shibuya and Ginza is a must pass-by too! 

#10) Watch a real Visual Kei Gig!! ~ Oh this is gonna be so cool! I'm gonna meet a fashion designer friend named Yuka Matsumoto and she invited me to come to this gig! I son't really know any Japanese Bands except for Shonen Knife, The Pillows and Oreskaband and I would be so awesome to feel like a groupie elsewhere in the world just for a night haha!! Yuka is part of the production team so I'm very proud and I feel lucky to have this chance!

I still have a million things to want to do in Tokyo... Can I just live there? Oh that would be so damn great! I can't wait for my trip!! i am so damn excited!!
