FASHION POST: TRUST

IMG_4736 IMG_4727 IMG_4732 IMG_4725 IMG_4731 IMG_4726 IMG_4742

This word is one of the most common, intangible, and fragile when we speak of relationships in which I am not only referring to being partners but to family, friends, siblings, loved ones, and even to strangers. So I share this post as an open letter for my 23 yr. old self and a prayer with my personal Savior, Jesus Christ ❤

This song, it hit right in the feels.

TRUST

Hillsong Young & Free – Youth Revival 

When it doesn’t go my way
I know that it is not the end
I’m trusting you have better plans
I haven’t even dreamt of yet

I know that You are for me
When everything’s against me
I put all my hope in You

Jesus I will trust You
I will trust you
I know you never fail
I will trust you
Jesus I will
Jesus I will

I don’t know how the story ends
But I know that You finished it
I’ll close my eyes and just let go
And fall into my only Hope

There’s safety in the falling
When I surrender fully
I put all my hope in You

The only thing I know
Is God you’re in control
In every little detail
You are close
I’ll never be alone
Here in the unknown
The power of Your Presence
Fills my soul

Now everything I know
Is God you’re in control
In every little detail
You are close
I’ll never be alone
Here in the unknown
The power of Your Presence
Fills my soul

Listen to the track here.

We can only trust if we have faith and believe. I hope we all find the courage to pursue trust even thought the things ahead are vague.

Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Galatians 6:9 – And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Thank you Jesus, I trust in you.

Enough said.

Xoxo,

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,

Shannen ❤

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.

Xoxo,

Fashion Post: Efflorescent

 

If I were to give a title to this post, it would be something obvious like anything with  ”Floral” (again)  but since it’s too cliche, I looked for other words related and came across the word Efflorescent, which means a gradual process of unfolding or developing, budding, issuing forth, rising, or emanating. I am in love with this word and what it means. It somehow correlates with my state  and emotions gushing through today and it appears to be in this outfit.   These past few days I’ve been trying to balance things with my life especially my time. Like what to do for the day, I see to it that I really do something productive because if I don’t, I resent. HAHAHA. Just kidding. I’m also trying weigh things between what my brain and heart says and I feel like I should reconcile them and keep calm. (Okay, THIS IS ONE BIG REVELATION. K. I don’t think anyone reads this anyway. LOL 😀 )   Nevertheless,  I’m just trying to really make the most out of it. Enjoying but still doing something worth 🙂

Soooo brace yourselves! My next post is still something budding 😉

Xoxo, Shannen ♥♥♥
