Girl Crush: Emma Watson x Hermione Granger

Hermione Granger has got to be one of my favorite characters in both the Harry Potter book and film franchise. I super love and admire smart girls who go after what they want and stand bravely for what they believe in. She loves to read and she's very loyal to her friends, and I have come to love Emma Watson (the actress who played the role) through the years just as well. I am in awe witnessing how her style has evolved, and she's truly grown to become one of the most stylish and sensible actresses of her generation.

In one of her interviews for the movie Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Emma shared why she loved playing the role of Hermione: "I feel very privileged to have played Hermione. I think she's someone young girls can look up to because she's always true to herself. She's very smart and an incredibly courageous and loyal friend who keeps a cool head in extremely difficult situations. It was wonderful to be able to bring across those elements of her personality throughout the films."

Here's to every empowered girl all over the world who dares to live her dreams while keeping everything cool and even managing to be in style.

About me

Hello! My name is Aizzing (pronounced as icing  yes, that sweet creamy glaze of frosting on top of your favorite cake) and I'm a booknerd and full time Pinay media dork currently based in Dubai, who eats paperbacks and candy-colored shoes for breakfast. I've been married for almost two years to the nice guy I dated for over seven years. He also shares my passion for traveling, good food, and films so you'll be seeing him a lot in here.

Icing & Write is my online vision board and personal diary  a collection of pretty things, sweet dreams, and wonderful people who inspire me, along with colorful sneak peeks of my travels and daily life in the desert. Posts are focused mainly on three things: beauty, books, and places, which are basically what I am most passionate about.

I've been online for as long as I can remember and have kept several blogs for just as long. I started pouring my thoughts over several blogging platforms such as Geocities, Blogdrive, Wordpress, Multiply, and also LiveJournal when I was still a teenager. But after making the big move from Manila to Dubai sometime in 2011, I wanted a new place online where I can post about my daily adventures here in the Middle East for my family and friends to read back home. That's when I decided to start anew with Icing and Write. From posting merely about my brandnew life here in the desert to my noob attempts with baking, this blog has become my creative outlet and eventually evolved into what it is now.
