Accessorize!

If you will notice, I am sharing you my favorite sites perfect for shopping stylish goodies that are very affordable but satisfactory. Today, I will give you an add-n to the spirit we are on right now by featuring this awesome collection of accessories that are unique and oh-so trendy! Get ready for some serious shopping now as I will make sure that you will!

This online shop that I'm so addicted to right now is Mel's Collection. They are inclined on Facebook, Instagram, and now at Zalora, which is a good thing, as they deserve a market expansion for their lovely products. I haven't bought personally from them (so I'm planning to within this week for me to try) but I'd love to recommend how amazing the pieces are as they are purely handmade by the owner herself.

The Author's Diary E7- For a friend

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share to you a letter that I wasn't able to send to my friend on her birthday as I can't find any means of communication with her. At some point it so sad to say but I guess I have to accept the fact that life is indeed not perfect. You cannot always have what you wanted.
My friend's name is Beth, by the way. She is smart, friendly, pretty, caring, and most of all, so fun to be with. I've known her for quite a short time but I think that's not the basis to not call someone a friend. She has been very good to me that I am so glad she became a part of my life. Memories with her is indeed priceless. Now, let's go over the letter I personally wrote for her wholeheartedly. I know this is not enough to thank her for being my friend but I hope it's okay.


Dear Beth,

When I stumbled upon you, my "stumbling through the dark" days were over — all because you cared enough to light the way to a wonderful friendship. You support me, listen to me, appreciate me, respect me, advise me, amuse me, cry with me. To me, you're a friend with benefits — the ones that really matter; like loyalty, support, trust, respect, kindness, honesty and, of course, free Candy Crush lives. Haha! And you have always been there for me. You redefine what friendship means. We will be close friends our entire lives — you can bet your fortune on it. That's how sure I am that we will somehow be able to go through thick and thin together (but I'm not talking about dieting).

A tribute to the iconic

"The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die. We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life." -Oscar de la Renta (22 July 1932 – 20 October 2014)


Oscar de la Renta is one of my favorite designers. He was one of the most renowned in the world. Born in Santo Domingo, he was trained by Cristóbal Balenciaga and Antonio del Castillo; he became internationally known in the 1960s as one of the couturiers who dressed Jacqueline Kennedy. An award-winning designer, he worked for Lanvin and Balmain; his eponymous fashion house continues to dress leading figures, from film stars to royalty. He is also famed for his glamorous red-carpet gowns and smart suits for ladies who lunch. 

Of course, everyone will truly miss him; especially to those who really love fashion like me. Even though battling with cancer for so long, he had shown us how magical fashion is, shaping lives of all women who want to be more beautiful. So, as a tribute for his exceptional talent and extraordinary hands, I am sharing you today my personal favorites from his collection that had touched many lives of stylish women.

The Author's Diary E6- Philosophically speaking

Hey guys! I want to share to you a story about my views in life. I am planning to submit this in a contest, so I guess I might be needing your opinions about this. Enjoy reading!


Everybody wants to be a winner. But nobody is born such. Life is what we make it, so as they say, and very lightly, indeed.
In life, there will be some ups and downs, successes and failures, good things and not-so-good things, they may be times when things do not turn out the way you expect them to be. One day, you may find yourself sweating it out through an unexpected problem. Next day, you may find that your favorite teacher has given you a failing mark. Another day, you may wake up with high fever and severe colds you just cannot get yourself out of bed and attend to your tasks. Or maybe a toothache that has been bothering you for days would not let you go to class now with a badly swollen jaw that has deformed your pretty face. Another time, you may have asked your best friend to go to a nice place, only to find out the last minute that she totally forgot it! Frustrating, isn’t it? Then, the question now may be: Can you still be a winner in the face of all these? And the answer is: Of course, you can!

Artistic fashion

I've been sketching a lot these days as clients are waiting for my hands on their wedding dresses. I am so happy and enjoying what I do right now as I can't believe that they will like and want my work. I guess it's a matter of not only meeting their expectations but at the same time, being able to make them feel that their personality is in the dress itself; to let them realize that they can wear it; and to give them the essence of wearing it.

Today, I'm going to share to you some of my warm-up sketches. Meaning, if I am thinking of a specific inspiration or scenario or event, I refresh things on my mind through this. Hope you'll like them! Enjoy!

The Author's Diary E5- Narrative story

Here is a short story that I made a long time ago but never seen. I wanted to share it to all of you guys. This is how I love all my readers. Enjoy!


There is always a way out

I was a homely child, just as funny-looking as could be. If there was any question in my mind about this, one look at my sister was the proof I need. I was an ugly duckling living with a swan. And it wasn't just looks either. Where she was graceful, I was gawky. Where she was smooth, I was shy.
I couldn't seem to fit in with the rest of the kids. My shyness was so intense even the thought of speaking in front of other people – actually talking out loud – sent me into a panic attack.

Asian fashion for less

I've just discovered something great as I explored the net yesterday about stylish fashion finds perfect for me. If you are like me who are searching for a more feminine type of pieces, then this is totally in for you! I'm so glad that Asian fashion for less brought me enough satisfaction, and I am so excited to share to you what this site brings; clearly must-haves that you may want to add up to your closet. 

Here are the pieces that I personally love from their collection:                                                                        
From tops that are super girly! Love their floral prints!

The Author's Diary E3- Dear Garret

I am so inclined with writing right now that I quite forgot about photography for the meantime. Haha! It was one of my hobbies since I started going to school. I've always felt that it gives me more freedom and a breath of fresh air. I truly believe that it's a masterpiece that comes from the heart.
Today, I'm so excited to share to you my thoughts of being an avid fan of A Message in a Bottle, which I have watched for 25 times already, I guess. Haha! Well, I made a letter that I thought Theresa should be writing for Garret after he died. Hope you guys will like it. Enjoy reading!

The Author's Diary E2- Prologue (revised)

Hi everyone! I've decided to do a revision of my story "The Idealist" on Wattpad.com. The reason behind this is that there is something that just flashed back in my mind right now. I wrote it on a piece of paper and here is the outcome: 



Prologue


Lily Johnson. A 22-year-old girl who is an endless dreamer. She is known for being nice, attractive, friendly and fun to be with.

She is currently a 3rd-year college student at Clayton State University in Georgia. She is very polite and well-behaved. Being studious is her crowning glory. With her, nothing is impossible.
