forever thankful


in college, my friends and i were blogging to share more stories of our lives, mainly just to each other. the sentimental and emotional person that i am unconsciously made it to a blog filled with feelings. i eventually stopped blogging in 2006 because i got too busy with work and the dawn of multiply and myspace at that time took more of my web-time than blogging. 
mid-2009, i discovered karla de rass and i was hooked. 
around november 2009, i decided to turn my personal blog into this.
fashion has always been an essential part of my life even when people say it's just vanity. 
my style is the way i express myself and my mood. it's one of my forms of art.
documenting my outfits -- daily and what-not, have pushed me to be more creative with myself.
it has secretly given me the excuse to go beyond boundaries and wear whatever i like.
but staying true to myself, this blog will never be just about fashion but also about my life. 
it will be filled with feelings -- yes, sometimes mushy ones. and rants.
it will be filled with adventures. loves. laughs. heartaches. triumphs.
and i am forever thankful for my 100 followers who have been putting up with me. 
your comments, believe it or not, have made my day in more ways than you can think of.
you have all made this adventure damn worthwhile!

ps. 100 followers give-away will be posted soon! keep posted!

I agree with what you wrote, I never intended for my blog to be a "fashion blog" but I guess I'm so interested in it that most of my posts became fashion-related haha. I love the print of your dress!

Whoever says blogging is a form of vanity, is pretty close-minded. It's a form of expression! Haha, like you said. (:
