The year 2016 is my first blogging hiatus since I started blogging on 2013. Half of the year I was in the Philippines and blogging constantly and at the same time attending events. Half of the year I am already here in Canada and that’s when blogging stopped. Trying to be familiar with different season outfit and changing my style from my usual girly feminine dresses to jeans and pull over is not a welcoming thought for me. I didn’t like the style, too boring and simple and too much clothes for my small framed body. I still feel the same way, so now that Fall is about to start, I am having separation anxiety to my dresses. But anyway, it’s gonna be fine, I survived last year so I probably will this year. I’ve got enough coats, parkas and jackets for me to use for the season. I will do my best to blog Fall and Winter season outfits, so stay tuned.

 

Every January, I do Fashion, Travel, Events and Book Recap but I did not do it this year because I was on hiatus from January to April. My style for 2016 are mostly corporate office wear and casual light dresses for travel. Ideal clothes for Asian countries which is what I love. I know this recap is already late but I will post it anyway, so check out my 2016 Fashion Recap.

If there is one thing that I am truly proud about myself, it is me being a dreamer and making my dream a reality. I was not born with a golden spoon in my mouth, but my mom taught me the power of perseverance, that anything can happen if you believe in yourself.

 

Back in the days, I was a shy girl, I can easily blend in the crowd without you noticing me. I am a girl without a name, always hidden on a plain sight. I never believed in myself. The only person who believed in me is my own mother, she would always encourage me to go to the stage, perform and excel academically. I never do that back in high school and college. I never fully realized the power of my dreams until after college. I pity my old self for being lame, but now I know that my old self is already proud of what I have become. I am a perfect example of a late bloomer.

Weaving a dream is not easy. It takes a lot of motivation and will power. No one can convince you of the things you are capable of doing than yourself. Your confidence, guts and ability will take you far. I am not talking about blogging specifically but my dreams and aspirations in general.

 

My transformation did not happen overnight. There are people who become instrument for me to fully realize my capabilities. These are the people I met along the way. They shaped me and molded me.

 

Let me quote Harriet Tubman when she said; “Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world”. To all my readers, wake up and make your dreams a reality.

Audrey Hepburn is my fashion icon. I’ve watched all her movies that was digitally enhanced and I was blown away by how sophisticated she was. She is an epitome of classic fashion with so much finesse and elegance. Who doesn’t know about her most popular movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s? No one right? If you don’t know then probably you have been hiding in a cave. That’s a joke, but seriously all fashionista that has the same taste as mine have her as their fashion icon just because she is Audrey Hepburn.

 

A lot of people have tried to copy this look and I am one of those people who tried so hard to be her other version. Lucky enough I have a very supportive friend photographer who is willing to make my dream a reality, and that’s none other than Cheny Santizas. We arranged to have our photo shoot at The Henry Hotel, a boutique hotel in Cebu with classic hipster theme that would be very suitable for this look.

 

I decided to be minimal when it comes to my dress length, and my necklace is just one layer that I made for this shoot the day before. Though, I did try to find an elbow length gloves without success, I was able to find a cute tiara from Broadway.
