Happy First Blogversary!

As I am typing this, my thoughts are running all over the place. I can't believe it has been one full year since I started this blog. It sure did feel longer with so many things that've happened yet I am also surprised that time flew by as fast as it did! Needless to say, this blog has grown immensely. I have met a lot of bloggers from various parts of the world and have explored on my own styles, too, as inspired by what I've seen and read from these other fabulous ladies I've met along the way.

To celebrate my blog's first anniversary, I would like to relive the past year's top posts and some of my favorites. I hope you join along for the ride. Here are my top ten picks: 


10. My very first outfit post. Before this blog started, I'm typically very shy in front of the camera. I would feel conscious looking at my own photos and is not hiding the fact that I am not photogenic. But as time went on, and as I got more into exploring different fashion choices, taking photos of myself came out naturally. It also helps to have an ever supportive guy willing to cope with my fashion blog photoshoot moments. 


 9. Casual weekend outfit ideas. For someone who always looks forward to the weekends to unwind, enjoy some date night with the main guy, or simply have some time off from work, I still make it a point to look chic and fab when I go out! Loved exploring many fashion inspirations from Polyvore with this one.


8. Receiving my Liebster Award! I am all for bloggers supporting each other within the community and me receiving this award was heart-warming because it was the first one I got since I started venturing into fashion blogging. 



7. I might start sounding like a broken record but I can't contain my love for sheer. Since this trend hit the scene, I not only hopped onto it but latched on it as if my life depended on it! I'm sure a lot would agree with me that sheer is comfy, versatile, and easy to wear.


6. Mustard is one of those colors that dominate my closet. I always feel compelled to pick one off the rack when I am doing my shopping. Am I the only one who thinks mustard deserve a spot in everyone's closet? Watch how I wore this color here and here.


5. I am a self-confessed girly girl. So when I tossed my sandals and heels for some Chucks, the boyf could not help but take pics, prompting an OOTD post.


4. The boyf and I aren't particularly gifted with the ability to be creative when it comes to gift-giving. I, myself, would like to be practical when it comes to buying stuffs for people that I love. To my delight, the boyf opted to shop for me on my birthday. This sea green blazer I picked up from Mags is one of several favorite birthday gifts that I got from him. Love it!  


3. For more than half my life, I have sported the long hair. When I recently decided to go short, out of some random inspiration, I almost freaked out! But I was glad with how it turned out. Got lots of compliments for my new, short 'do too!


2. Apart from our anniversary, the boyf's birthday is my most anticipated day of the year. This year was just as special - it turned out better than I had hoped! Every year, it's my goal to make his birthday better than the previous one. And according to him, I'm doing a great job!


1. Since we first got to travel together, the boyf and I had made it a commitment to travel somewhere we've both never been before at least once a year. So far, so good! This Palawan trip is definitely going down as one of my favorite vacations to date (along with Boracay). It's definitely my favorite memory from 2013 so far, too. For next year, we're contemplating Caramoan Islands or an overseas trip to KL. Either way, I'm sure it's going to be a blast!

Hope to see you again here! It's been fun sharing my fashion adventures with you!
