Say hello to the 25-year-old me! Many people today don’t like revealing their age after turning 21 or 24; I, even, used to be one of them. But I’ve come to terms with the fact that humans grow older every year. Why hide something that’s natural?
So this is me–a year older and definitely a year wiser. I just celebrated my birthday on August 5 and it was, by far, the best birthday I’ve had. When I was a kid, I never had birthday parties. We couldn’t even afford a cake, so I was used to letting the day pass by. But of course, I’d always wish for a better birthday. I finally got it this year and I couldn’t be more grateful. 🙂

The celebration was a little unplanned, but I’m glad I and my family did it. I was not supposed to go home for my birthday, like the past three years, but my grandma was ill and was looking for me. Who am I to refuse such request? So I traveled to Naga City and stayed there for a week. And I’m glad I did.
I prepared my special spaghetti carbonara, my sister and my best friend brought 2 cakes, and my mom and Chad (through Skype) bought me presents. I was with family, loved ones, and friends in our soon-to-be-finished home… it was the best birthday ever. Nothing beats celebrating with the people that really matter. We may have differing characters and opinions on things, which at times cause misunderstandings, but they, especially my family, have always been there for me. I’m a difficult, ambitious person, but my family never ran out of support in my endeavors. That’s why they’ve always been my number one priority; everything that I do is for them.
So what’s next for Daphne? I don’t know yet, but knowing myself, I’m pretty sure I’ll be doing something bold again. Just last month I took sewing classes and this wine red skater skirt I’m wearing is just the first of my many sewing projects. You’ll be seeing more of my ‘creations’ in this blog and in my future OOTDs–that’s for sure. This skirt is pretty easy to make and a perfect project for sewing beginners like me. You can view the tutorial I shared here.
By the way I finally managed to take my own OOTD using my Canon AE-1 film camera’s timer setting. Needs a little getting used to though. How do you like the outcome? 🙂
