Another couple of cheeky photos with Kim is unavoidable. Considering the fact that we've been friends since the summer after 7th grade (due to some certain tween magazine involvement) and actually kept in touch, such a photoshoot is a must. Despite the evident sweat on my part, t'was a memorable shoot! With regards to the title of the song, I quite like the idea of leaving an outline before I die. Instead of a mark, maybe an imprint would do so as to boost the imagination of the others who come after me. So maybe they can fill in whatever outline or idea I made. An odd thought... Nevertheless, hope you enjoy this set!

I Know Write MNL: Inspired By

Find your purpose.

In a world of technology, it's easy to get lost in the hustle and bustle of all the happenings. There are times where it seems like giving up is the only option. It isn't. After all, I did hear that God's delay does not equate to His denial. 

We each have a purpose. We all end up creating some enigmatic idea or advocacy. But we don't know that yet. I don't know what the future has in stake for me, and instead of being paranoid, I try to stay curious. Let your curiosity be that extra push to keep you going.

We must keep ourselves inspired. Let the unknown inspire you. Let the people around you inspire you- but never imitate. Imitation is completely different from inspiration. Let us use others as inspirations to create our own unique and distinct style. Imitation may be the greatest form of flattery, but from that, you may just be robbing someone of something they've worked on for years.

Keep on finding your purpose. I admit, I still don't know mine- but in a way, that's why I keep going. I hope Yannie, Jodie, Arielle, and I were able to help everyone who came to IKWr yesterday be inspired. So never ever forget that inspiration can come from anywhere.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)

Gecko (Overdrive)

I haven't had an outfit post in a while yet again, but here we go. Clinging onto every second left of this school year, because around this time next year, I won't be surrounded by the people who have been with me for thirteen years. I feel stressed and sentimental everyday. Being a senior, it's inevitable. There are certain moments I wish they never happened. But they always make sense in the end- at least that's what people say. I just hope it's true.

And hey, culottes and palazzo pants are in vogue once again. FINALLY! More things I can wear!

Wildfire x Blo

Over the time I have been idle, plenty of things happened (ie. postponement of a certain CET ngh, natural beauty, never-ending continuation of the stress senior year brings about, etc..). Despite my perpetual complaints regarding this school year, I cannot deny that so far, it has been the best. I can't exactly explain why. But to all underclassmen, I swear, it's the best. 

This post also has a relation to one of my extra cirriculars, wherein I had to find sponsors. I stumbled upon Blo Blow Dry Bar after many of my friends recommended the pseudo-salon itself. After I had contacted them, they were extremely kind to have given me a complimentary "Blow Out" since I have never tried Blo.. 'til that day. So to everyone, I highly recommend this store. All of them are extremely friendly and they definitely shape themselves to cater to your needs.

You can buy a Gift Certificate worth 500pesos for Php250.00! Just contact me if you're interested! It's worth one "Blow Out" and it is indeed worth it. Hope you all have a great week ahead! Shout out to the lovely Yuki for being super nice and understanding! :)

Aside from blo outs, Blo offers other services such as blo out with hair treatment, hair extension installation, blo bridal packages, and blo parties.
