I know, I haven’t posted anything for almost a week and for that I apologize. The past week was so stressful I decided to take a small break, but that doesn’t matter anymore because I’m back. And I’m back with a bang!
I’ve always believed that there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been through many hardships and emotional blows, but they’ve never tainted my outlook on life and discouraged me in pursuing my goals. They’re like accessories—they give more flavor to an outfit, and in this case, life. As Leslie Caron said, In order to have great happiness you have to have great pain and unhappiness—otherwise how would you know when you’re happy?
And speaking of happiness, yesterday was a very good day for me. I received two great news—they’re not that huge, but again for a small town girl like me, they’re a great feat already.
1. Candy Magazine’s It Girl on the Web Style Feature
I was talking to someone online when that person told me she saw me on candymag.com’s Style Files. I was so surprised because I never thought I would get chosen for a number of reasons. One, Candy Magazine is a pre-teen/teen magazine and I’m already way beyond my teenage years. Two, I am not as adventurous as other fashion bloggers. I’m a dress/t-shirt and jeans (or shorts) kind of girl and I find it impractical wearing clothes I am not comfortable in. But hey, I got picked and I couldn’t be happier. Yeahboy, that’s one tick off my checklist. Earlier this year I saw myself on Chalk Magazine and on a Dove billboard.
Oh hello there, Harry Styles! 😛
I see syntax errors. Lol, sorry about that. I was in a hurry answering the questions.
Click HERE to read the whole feature. Below are some lovely comments I’ve received from people. I’m so touched. Thanks, guys! 🙂
2. New Glorietta Vibe Modelling Opportunity
I only stand 5 feet but I never saw it as a hindrance to modelling, but I also do not deny the fact that tall girls look great, if not better, on the runway. I’ve always believed, however, that there’s room for everyone in the fashion industry. Case in point, Glorietta, one of the country’s premier shopping destination, in cooperation with AVA Philippines, is currently looking for models of all shapes and sizes who will walk the runway in an attempt to break the current Guinness record for most people on the runway, which is held by New York EXPRESS I think.
Seeing this as a great opportunity, I joined yesterday.
And before the day ended, I bagged the 3rd spot! Yay!
Thanks to everyone who supported and voted for me. I really appreciate it a lot. I couldn’t have made it without all your help yesterday.
Again, thanks to everyone, especially to those who shared and retweeted the link to my photo. I love you all! xx
