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.

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.

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 ♥

Fashion Post: Bloom Where You Are Planted

Hello guuuuuuys! 🙂

Just want to let you know that I’m still alive but I’m barely breathing. HAHAHA. Just kidding. I’m still alive, alert, awake and enthusiastic but I’m sorry for the lack of posts these past few months. I’ll make it up to you I promise 🙂

 I don’t really know what to write about this post but as I go along, I hope what I say makes sense. LOL. The title just randomly came into my mind maybe because of the outfit I’m wearing… My undying love to everything floral ✿✿✿ If I could wear flowers everyday, I would. Haha. Just kidding 😀 Now let’s go back, I really think we have to bloom where we are planted. I mean excelling in the things we are meant to do and give value to the calling God had assigned for us. I believe we’re here on this earth for a purpose. Each one of us has one thing that the other’s do not have. Our uniqueness makes us so important that without it, we are all the same.  I also believe in doing what we love and loving what we are doing because if we don’t enjoy the span of our life here, and everything becomes a routine, how are we supposed to maximize our full potential?  Liking what we do is an element to happiness. And being happy is one of the most important thing. And I’m happy that I’m happy because I make people happy and they make me happy too 🙂 OKAY. Sorry for my weirdness. -_____-

Anyway, I’d like to share with you this set of photos taken last July by Jun Tiangja (Thanks for the pictures nong! :D) on a fine Sunday afternoon with my church friends. It was a fun shoot because it felt like we were just playing and having fun. Hihi. Thank you Lord ❤
