RECAP 2015

 

I AM SAYING A BIG HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EVERYONE!!! BECAUSE I MISSED YOU ALL & BLOGGING. 😀

Today, I’m probably going to write the longest post I’ll ever be writing here because this is a SUMMARY of last years’ outfit shots I haven’t blogged about. I solemnly swear that this year I’ll be more dedicated to my blog. It’s my passion in the first place and like a breather through all the work I’m doing in my everyday grind. Not blogging doesn’t mean I’m not taking any outfit shots. So here it is! I’m presenting to you may faces. LELS. Hey! Better late for a year than never right? HAHAHA 😀

JANUARY.

A month where I deprived food. Can’t believe I’m so tiny here. Or thin. Or not. Take me back to this size pleaseeeeee? And check out that colored hair! It’s my first time to put color in my hair here. #Dry&frizzy

FEBRUARY.

I pulled off this belly showing photo this month which is by the way, candid.

This blazer is a Valentine’s gift from the boyfriend. 😉 I actually love the lighting in these photos. It’s during the time of the day when people sleep and I shoot :p

Another blazer ensemble. This time a little bit formal with a twist and color popping everywhere.

MAY.

Light rays of a sunset are my thing too. It’s magical. These shots are taken on  a birthday party

at golden hour by my photographer friend. Isn’t it amazing?

JULY.

The month I decided to cut my locks off to give way to the fringe-ey bangs.

AUGUST.

The off shoulder trend started peeping in my life this month. It has been my favorite since. Plus florals!

OCTOBER.

Another floral and ripped jeans combooo. I think it’s another experimental outfit for me because I don’t really use aviators. It doesn’t fit. I think. In my face. 😀

NOVEMBER.

Things have become stable this month because I have finally adjusted. In my time, my own pace, and the plans are finally drifting. Thank God. And in the fashion area, I have set to mind the items that I want. So I’m preparing myself. Get ready 2016! 😀

I love these strappy sandals. It’s like a must have item. DSC_0829 DSC_0818 DSC_0830 DSC_0817

DECEMBER.

My first time to hike a few hundred steps just to have few pictures taken! 😀 Here is the only remembrance of an outfit shot last month since it was heck of a busy month! It was a whirlwind of going back and forth, traveling, and attending all these events. But it was my most favorite month! I love the holiday rush 2015! Just thanking God for all his blessings that HE has showered to me and my family. #grateful

So there you go! My 2015 was tight but I’m just thankful for all the lessons, blessings, failures, and success. And I’m closing it with the thought of a more positive, bright, adventurous, joyful, unique 2016. Happy that my first month is going really well.

I’m hoping that you all will be blessed too!

Thank you 2015.

Let’s go 2016!

HELLO 🙂

How have you been doing? It’s a rainy Saturday on a summer.  And I’m just here listening to Bethel while spontaneously writing this post.  These shots were taken last November and can you imagine how delayed my posts are? I just don’t want to make excuses anymore 😀  It’s been awhile since I’ve wrote a new journal and only God knows the things I’ve been doing. I’m sure I’m heading to a greater plan that He has than I have for myself even though some things are still a little vague and unsure for me. Maybe all I need right now is a little time to cope with this life’s “constants” but I keep reminding myself to take one step at a time and not jump into a puddle, only to find out that it’s not gonna work for me. Do I even make sense. Lels. Well, everyday I keep hoping for the best things to come and I thank the Lord in advance 🙂

P.S. Who needs a workout when this top I’m wearing can contour the bod’s shape? I love it when that happens because your belly pounds are hidden right away. HAHAHA 😀

Well, I gotta go. Still have a 200 item test that’s waiting for me and that’s what I’m going to do for the rest of the day.

Thank you for reading! Keep the faith 🙂

Xoxo,

Hey lovies!

Just want to share with you this color combo that I wore  a few months ago. It’s silver and blue and it’s something new. (wrote it because it rhymes :D) New, because I’m about to enter a new chapter in my life and before the going gets tough, (the tough gets going!…I kid :D) I just want to take time to be grateful for every little and big thing that has happened, happening, and is going to happen in my life. Because without these, I would not be where I am now. Right now, I seem to cherish and appreciate more even the smallest details. And so I have learned to not always rush in to things for great things take time. I know that God is making all things work together for my good.  At this time, I have learned to breathe because that’s what we need sometimes; to fully grasp the strength we need to conquer the endeavors bestowed upon us everyday. I just thank God for family, loveys, friends, mentors that continually support and inspire me.

This is also new because these days I’m looking for something that will catch my eye, (when it comes to fashion of course). Maybe because I want to come out of my shell and go for the items that I really want. Like trying out new patterns, designs, textures and colors but staying true to my style and not just go with the trend. Hey! only dead fish go with the flow you know? Hihi. So do you have any suggestions on what I’ll be wearing next?

Give me a beep.

Xoxo,

Shannen

Hello!!! 😀

It’s been so long.

But I am sooooo back with this outfit post that was taken last August but only got the time to post it now. (Sorry for that -___-) It’s just that the past 5 months of my life was like riding a roller coaster. I was in my highest and lowest point, I couldn’t give all the details but it was one helluva ride. HAHA. I’ve learned a lot of lessons and had new experiences, good and bad happy and sad.  But before it all gets hyped up again, I just want to keep calm and share with you this outfit we shot at a rest house in the mountains. I just looooove the mountains and everything nature-ey. It’s a refreshing breath of fresh air and the sound of leaves, it soothes the soul. Well, what else can beat that? I wish I could go back to that place again. It was windy that day so please don’t mind the awkward poses I have here. Hihi 😀 I was also in a rush that day so I took out what I could find in my closet, and voila! This outfit. It’s one of the comfiest that I’ve ever worn here on the blog and I think it’s perfect for a casual and chill day.

What do you think?

See you in my upcoming posts.

Fashion Post: Silver Lining

 

Hey errrbody 🙂

I finally have a new post -____- Hihi. Decided to edit a few of my pictures today since I literally did nothing because I declared it my rest day and just because I really just don’t  feel like doing anything. So to make it up with productivity, here’s a new outfit post 🙂

Notice how I seem to always wear black every now and then? It’s because it’s the easiest to pair with metallic colors! I’m addicted with gold and silver these days, well mostly gold, because it’s so classy. But of course it depends on how you style and what you pair it with. But for this outfit, I went for silver and paired my skirt with this ”lacey” button down top that’s from my mom  and black wedges with silver studs 🙂 You can’t really see how silver the skirt is because of the exposure but will work on that. Hihi. And of course, it’s becoming a habit of mine to always relate the title of my posts to my personal life. (That’s if I could think of anything. Lol) Silver lining is the term used when you want to emphasize the hopeful side of a situation that might seem gloomy on the surface. And right now, I think i’m on the gloomy side of things because there are a few matters that I’ve been thinking about deeply which I  cannot really specify ☂ But hey, there’s always a greener pasture on the other side right? I know positive thinking always leads to a positive outcome and that’s where I get my  hopes up every time ☁ I wish that you would always be hopeful on whatever life throws at and find the silver lining ♥
