I’ve formulated an equation that in order to be a top fashion blogger, I have to have a killer body, flawless fair skin, goddess hair, a Georgina Wilson face and a Bill Gates bank account. Not surprisingly, I am exactly the opposite! But who says 5’1/2 (the half-inch accounts for a big difference! haha) morenas can’t blog about fashion?
I am not your ordinary fashion blogger. I know you’ve heard that said gaziliion times before but really, I’m in countless ways much, much different! (sa itsura pa lang, diba?) I admit I am so afraid of mixed reactions I’ll get from friends or family or whoever will take the time to visit this. (Gosh! Please be kind to me.*insert pretty eyes face here*)
But I asked myself, rather dramatically if you will, “If not now, when?”
I’m insecure with a lot of things about myself which is why it took an awful amount of gut to start this. If it weren’t for my B8 sister Ricie, I wouldn’t consider blogging this early. I thank her for believing in me (chos)!!! Special mention also to another B8 sister Jaya who asked me too, Cheska and Ate Anne who sort of indirectly led me to this path, Jodesz who kept teasing me about Lookbook and if there are others I forgot to mention, ooooops….!!
I know it’s only a blog but it’s such a BIG deal especially to a first-time blogger like me. Plus, it’s about fashion that my addiction to is not very apparent because I’m not always fasyon like you expect fashion bloggers to be. So I really fear to be judged! But oh please, I’m eighteen. I have to stop caring of what everyone’s thinking or else I won’t be able to do anything I love, right?
And can’t I say it enough, I love fashiiiiiiiiiiiiooooon!!! Exclamation point! The most important ingredient that will keep this blog alive.
Since I’m celebrating my 18th exactly today and I’m not throwing out a party, allow me to thank everyone who’s been with me through thick and thin, whether our relationship be civil or close, thank you dear loved ones for simply making yourself known to me!
Only some of you might see this but that’ll be much better than none! So to the VIP in my life: teachers, advisers, grade school friends, Anthony clique, BACHADO family, ENGFO co-officers, GE classes’ friends, JC orgmates, CYA brothers and sisters, AG sisters, HH sisters, college blockmates, Teampura batchmates, CJW SC teammates, college barkada, B8 sistuuuurs, all my relatives, my Ate Bettina, my sexy dad, my hot momma----I love, love, love, love you all!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re my angels on earth!! As the cliché goes, I wouldn’t be the same person I am now if it weren’t for you guys! *GIANT BEAR GROUP HUG* >:D< >:D< >:D<
Of course, I want to give a BIG shoutout to the BIG GUY ABOVE who has never abandoned me and continues to surprise me with all the blessings that never stop coming. LORD, thank you so much for giving me my awesome friends, beautiful family and YOU!
If this is all overly dramatic for a blog post, I’m sorry! I guess you kinda turn like this when you’re already legal. I’m 18!!! I still can’t believe it!!! Anyway….
Cheers to the first day of my baby blog and to the happiest birthday of my life! Cheers to life!
P.S. Sorry for the lengthy post and overdose of exclamation points! Please bear with me.. it’s my first (Though I don’t really promise that the other entries will be short, haha)! Hope you'll drop by again!
