Readers nowadays are intelligent, they know if you are just forcing a content, or really sincerely enjoying it. So just enjoy writing posts.

The Visionary

 

I can’t still believe that I am already in my fourth year of blogging this blog. I never thought I will do something this long or consistent in my life. I know how much  I tend to easily outgrow things and having this blog is one of the few things I am consistent of. However I just want to celebrate with you my 4th year in my blogging career. I never thought blogging could be able to lead me; meet new people, discover places, and to show the world the things I am passionate about.

So let me share with you a simple story about how this blog began. 4 years ago (time flies too fast LOL) my teacher in a major subject in college required us to start a blog. I remember my first post was all about different fashion styles. It was already a sign that I am going to blog about fashion.

My blogging story is not an overnight success or super stardom like other bloggers. I never knew you can make money out of blogging. I never knew what blogging can offer to me. I really had no idea or rather no one inspired me to do blogging. As you can see it was all for a purpose. I enjoyed having my virtual diary online, such as sharing photos of important people in my life, sharing my unforgettable moments, new discoveries in fashion (such as Polyvore). I didn’t knew that blogging fashion will lead me to greatest step in my life.

Before blogging came to my life I was this girl who had no plans, goals, dreams in my life. I am just let things go with the flow. Until my blog proved to me that I have the right to dream big, to have plans in my life, and goals to achieve. Until my fashion designer dreams came alive out of fashion blogging. No one told me to be a fashion designer or no one inspired me to become one. But I owed this blog a lot, because I found a brighter path for myself, although it is far from the field I should expertise with (Communication, I am a Communication Arts graduate).

Your degree should not dictate you on where you will be heading. People around you have no right to dictate where you will go in life. After all it is your life that you are living. It is not somebody else’s life. You may feel lost in life, like having no direction, no goals to take. The lesson I learned is don’t rush in everything in your life. Take your time, take one day at a time, enjoy everything life has to offer. Enjoy your friends, family, and opportunities coming your way. You will find  your goals and dreams in unexpected way.

People may say anything against the path you chose. People may discourage you and put you down for being too idealistic. But once you’ve become strong willed and strong will, and a right attitude. You can make your visions turn to reality in no time. It will surely happen at the right time of your life. Just work hard, put your heart into it, and let God be the center of your life. Everything and the rest will follow.

[Bridgette’s Closet-Top] [Pazzo-Shorts] [Chloe Edit-Shoes] [Thrift Shop-Necklace] [Boracay-Fedora Hat] [Vintage Shop-Bag]

My outfit screams for summer and it is one of my favorite season of the year. However instead of the usual blue, orange, yellow colors for summer. I opted for something different such as emerald or known as green. I love wearing chiffon tops lately and usually they are worn for offices. But who cares? fashion is supposed to be fun at the first place. It doesn’t have specific rules as they say. But anyway I chose to pair it with a casual shorts and tropical necklace I got from a thrift shop (I know you guys know how I love great deals and thrift shops, who doesn’t anyway?). Have a fashionable day loves!
