FLORAL DRESS FOR FALL

Hello Everyone! Hello First of Fall aka the best time of the year! Today is the first day of Fall but doesn’t feel like it because of the 90 degrees weather outside this afternoon. Lol I wonder when are we going to have REAL fall like any other places up North! #Duuh (we’re in the South girl so stop dreaming! Never going to happen!!Lol) I know I’ve been MIA for a while and I promise to catch up with you guys by posting another blog post tonight. So here’s a quick rundown after I decided to do this full time. I was actually really afraid doing this but to the amount of work I’m getting recently is just crazy overwhelming, in a good way and I’m not complaining y’all—it’s just crazy how the universe works! I will be forever grateful, I know for a fact that there will be an ups and downs with this, trust me when I tell you that I don’t care at all, I love doing this, this is my passion so bring it on! Lol I actually just got home from New Orleans, staycation and went to an event this morning, I can’t wait to tell you more about it in a few!

To all the ladies out there who’s brave enough to wear floral dresses during fall raise your right hand! Lol! To be honest I wasn’t confident wearing floral dresses during Fall season before, but as the time goes by I’ve learned so much, it’s just all about the little details and tricks, time to change your thinking that floral dresses isn’t just for spring, we just have to pick the right color, burgundy, purple, emerald green and the list goes on! Also the key to creating look with one piece of clothing is adding some layers to it besides Fall is all about layering, with this kind of dress I should’ve throw some denim jacket if only it wasn’t 90 degrees outside!

TOP REASONS WHY I’M TAKING THIS BLOGGING LIFE TO ANOTHER LEVEL

Hello Everyone! Ahhh, life has been crazy busy lately, I hosted a party yesterday, lots of my friends came over and I did not really expect that, good food and meaningful conversation, y’all can’t really beat that and knowing the fact I managed to cooked so much Filipino food was fulfilling, I was kinda nervous but hey, they loved it or maybe they were just being nice! Lol Anyway, yesterday was my first day of being self-employed, It haven’t sunk in yet actually that I am really doing this thing full time, still trying to contemplate everything but nevertheless I am grateful and thankful for everything and next week I have event that I am going to attend to and pretty much excited, I actually can’t wait to tell you guys about it so for now here’s the my top reasons why I’m taking this blogging life to another level.

Passion

Back in high school, a teacher asked us to write a long paragraph of “WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 10 YEARS?” I think I put that I wanted to be a teacher and obviously that wasn’t true” I lied to my teacher! Lol (Hoping she don’t read my blog) Haha After Keith  and I got married he asked me that again, and my answer was “Well, I want to be a Executive Secretary” which I was back home. I got that job after I graduated in College and honeslty I did not mind doing paperwork and such! When I moved here in the US I lost IT again, I was trying to figure out what I want to do, what kind of job should applied for. That was also the time where I blog just to kill time. Then whenever K & I travelled somewhere I always have this mind set that I have to take photos of everything so I can share it to my friends, family & now readers. Before I did not know that some people out there do this for a living, I really thought blogging was just for people who love to share the lesson they learned, thoughts and experiences. I don’t consider this as a job, because I don’t mind staying up late, spending hours in front of my office desk and of course dressing up, words can’t even explain how! Like they say,“Find a career you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.”and viola!! here I am and can’t believe that I found it. It took me years to figure out what I really want to do with my career, I had to go back n forth but little did I know, it was in front of me the whole time, I wasn’t just taking it seriously.

HOW TO GET RID OF NEGATIVE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE

I’ve lived in the Philippines for almost 23 years and trust me when I say they’re everywhere back home, I grew up being judge all the time by neighbors, co workers, classmates and someone who’m I just met even when I was just buying something from the store. Let me share this short story I experienced way back then; I was trying to get something for my lunch and this guy said something to a girl that made the girl say “No, she’s fat” she was referring to me. The girl was pretty confident mocking me bc she thought I won’t be able to understand them, they were using a different dialect but duh! I grew up in Bicol so I can understand that they were bashing me and knowing the fact that I was in front of them annoyed me so much! I was actually going to say something but I decided to keep my mouth shut, it’s not going to do anything good if I did argue with them anyway!

Back home if you wear something nice people will tell you, “doesn’t suit you, “you’re fat”the color is not for you” “you gained weight” and so on and so forth. It’s freaking annoying guys, It never ends, they do have this “crab mentality” thingyy. A lot of Filipino just really don’t like it when other people are doing good with their lives and successful—they always find a way to bring you down. I’m not only talking about Filipinos, probably there’s always someone out there, any part of the world who do the same thing. We don’t need these people in our lives so cut them off!

Since I experienced this things a lot here’s a short list that will help you to remove negative people in your system, trust me they can be harmful to your state of mind and your sense of self.

NEW JOURNEY X BIGGEST DECISION IN LIFE

Hello Everyone! How’s your day going? This crazy weather is making me lazy, not helping me at all with all the things I have to do and tomorrow I’m going to New Orleans for my new project so I’m hoping this crazy weather will stop soon! Remember when I mentioned here that I wish I can be a full time blogger, well, it’s happening now! I just gave my 2 weeks notice to my employer, I was kinda touched actually when they told me that I can just put on leave instead of me quitting so there’s always a position waiting for me whenever I decide to come back with them, that being said makes me don’t want to leave anymore. Lol I’m nervous bc I’ll be self employed now, I have to do all the hard work and such! I still can’t fathom the fact that it’s happening, I wasn’t actually planning doing this sooner but K said, why do it now and besides I missed so much opportunity and events bc of my other job! Plus I have more time for Keith and being a furry Mom. Keith has a different schedule so we really don’t get to see each other. When he leaves early for work I’m usually sleeping then when he gets home I’m at work! Me doing this I get more time to take care of them so yup, I hope you guys will support me with this new journey of my life.

I feel so thankful with y’all, you guys are so sweet and thank you for always reading my post. I get so “kilig” whenever people tells me that they do visit my blog and I’m their inspiration. I do read all your messages and I’m loving them so please, keep them coming! Ahh, I can’t even put into words how thankful I am to have you guys. I know, I’m nothing compare to those big/famous bloggers but knowing there still people out there who keeps going back to my blog for more and knowing the fact that you guys appreciates what I do it makes me want to do more and go beyond! So here’s another outfit post for you guys.
