Just Breathe

I have tons of things to thank for this Lenten Season, and one of which is God's continuous guidance over me, Marise, and my business. He never fails to give me what I need, and it always come in the right time. I have been reflecting for days now, why worrying is never a solution to any problem,  It is precisely because of wishing too many things to happen in our own time frame. I have learned to  put all things under God's control, while doing things I can while waiting for His answer. And the formula never failed me. :)

Speaking of formula, there's none to dressing-up haha! I seriously cannot figure out how on earth I am able to assemble an outfit just a few more time before I leave for any occasion. All throughout I just let things flow, and use my mood for the day to come up with my look. And with this, I am able to use almost everything inside my closet. I seldom shop, I have too many clothes already , I just need to mix and match to make several looks. :) 

How you guys doing lately? Are you heading out somewhere? :)

Swan Lake

There's something about being near to a body water, well, at least for me. I feel secured and at peace whenever I see infront of me,either the sea, river, or lake. It calms my inner self and helps me think more positive. And since, my family haven't planned yet about our summer beach trip, I'd just have a look of a lake instead. Lucky to have seen one here in Manila. hehe 

Don't you just love how the background blends with my bohemian personality and outfit? I wish I could build a tree house near a not-so wild forest and lake. haha! :)

Today's Saturday and I am catching with my work and crafting projects! :) How are you guys doing ? :)

Call Of The Wild

Lately, I have been very busy with work that I wish I have a week to sit on a grass, take some more photos, and become as free as I can be. I totally need a break. And I will definitely be looking forward to the coming weekend to make another shoot. Don't you just love the background? It's so bohemian-ish I am wishing I could make a teepee in the middle, to complete the boho feel!

How are you doing lately? I hope you won't forget to drop by Simone's Closet to check on our new uploads, NAVAJO PART 2 collection, in which the skirt I am wearing on this post is for sale! :)

Inside my Speaking Mind

It is very unlikely for me to make a personal post like this, but because of my unstoppable mind speaking so loud inside me, I'd spill it out.

Okay, a lot of things are happening to me right now, and aside from my "love problems" hehe that I think I am near to discussing here, also, I'd like to tell how I see my life right now.

I remember my talks with my good friend, Bella, about us dreaming of our own house, successful business, and getting almost what we have ever dreamed of. I've realized how getting there is not really easy! Take note, not easy! 

Walang shortcut ika nga! You have to chase the long and winding road til you get there. I sometimes told Bella, it may seem impossible to get to the destination that we like. but you know, I've realized that our imperfect lives right now is actually our success story! Our journey getting to what we have always dreamed of is already a success. Sometimes we coin success as to bigger achievements, but for me I see my failures, my hardships, as a part of my success. It's not only those fancy things, perfect life, that we can truly say we are successful. 

My journey is already my success. Everytime I continue to drive my life through the path, it's an achievement for me. the pauses and the humps and bumps, the rocky roads, it don't matter just as long as I keep moving, I feel successful already. It is in the continuous doing, and your long string of patience and hope, that you can be proud of yourself, enough to say you are SUCCESSFUL. 

you may encounter failures at times, along the way, but that is okay. Akoe nga eh ang dami ng fail moments, but I always bring myself up to continue my journey, Never stop the journey it is much an achievement rather than getting to the destination. It's still how you take the journey that matters after all. It is in surpassing all those failures that you can really say you are SUCCESSFUL! 

I once told Bella, that, in this day and age, people nowadays are much giving importance on outside appearance, material things, and popularity that they tend to forget to be true to themselves and to others, and worse, lose their good values. 

If on the start you see a successful life as these three, then you would most likely to end-up a man with poor values, but richer in material success. I know a few people who measure their lives through amounts of money, number of IG likes, followers, good career, popularity, a bunch of friends, that almost everyday they see it as a measuring tool to their level of success. I mean, WTH! Life in itself is immeasurable, what more for success?? I would never be basing my life through those things, because I am far more beyond that. My success is not solely about achievements it also includes my failures. It is not plainly about my material goasl, bonus n lang un, but it is still how I take the journey of my life, and what kind of a man I become along the way.

Easy or hard, I 'll make sure to become a successful good man along the way. To succeed is to take the journey, fail more, but get -up even more, and earn good values along the way.

Discovering Your Style

 Summer is my favorite season of the year. As a boho girl like me, it energizes me to see a sun shiny day, greener pastures, and the golden sunset. I have long been searching for my style since this blog started. I hardly noticed my boho side because it was always my preppy side that took place. If you have been reading this blog since day 1, I always dress preppy complete with my blazer, trousers, and pointed flats. I somehow discovered my boho side when I began crafting accessories. It took a while before I finally knew my true style. Change come and go and only through constant change that I was able to find out what my style really is. I can say that I am much more proud to dress-up after I realized what my style really is. I can dress-up in 5 minutes, no sweat! :) 

Blogging has somehow taught me to discover more about myself, rather than blending myself to the trend. This blog has somehow paved the way for me to realize that style is always within myself, yourself, waiting to be discovered. You just have to be yourself, proudly, to be able to do that! :)

By the way I am wearing my new summer dress design for Simone's Closet! I am not a fan of tube tops or dresses, but this one is an exception! Swear it flatters my body so well and it stays in place no matter how I move. I actually could live in this dress for so long, super comfy swear!
