Modern Blogging

          Blogging has become a standard for those whose desire is to express one’s feelings and opinions through social means; it became a platform for fashionistas, a breeding ground for young entrepreneurs and aspiring writers, and so much more! It is by all means the easiest way to express your ideas by putting your thoughts into words. Continue reading “Modern Blogging”

Change

Hello everyone! I know that it may been a long time since I have last updated my blog and I have to decided to change things up a little – my blog posts. I have recently read all of my blog posts and all I can say that they have been kind of sloppy (ignore the term and the hint of annoyance) and which I have decided to become more creative and less opinionated with my way of writing. Yes, this will definitely be a challenge for me since I will be writing in a style which I am not used to.

To start things off, I will post more about my experiences and travels rather than my very (VERY) opinionated reviews. I will start by posting about the places where I’ve been to and to give positive reviews on my current favorite restaurants; as well as tutorials of any sort. But to be quite honest, I might just end up being more spontaneous with my posts rather than them being thoroughly planned and executed.

Now that everything has all been said and done, I truly hope that it will improve my way of writing and to successfully achieve a target audience. I would also like to give credit to my ever-so-faithful readers who have believed in me and who have been so patient in terms of my sloppiness. Like i have said in my previous posts, I always get so giddy and happy every time I receive a very positive comment from my lovely readers. This change will be good – for sure.

Written by him <3

 “He stood there alone. Gazing the remnants of the battle that just transpired not just moments ago. The eerie wisp of an empty battlefield startled him. Never has there been such a distorted sight of tranquility. Its serenity, obscured by the carnage that now surrounds the once vast greens of this plateau. Its been days since he’s slept, and even longer since he’s had a moment to stop. The events that transpired, were just too fast, to hectic, to recall, and right now, all he can think about is the reason why he went through this proverbial hell on earth for. He smirks, and thinks “it’s finally finished” as he finally drops his weapon on the ground and succumbs to the weight of his actions. His choices, decisions, ruthless, but choices that needed to be made nonetheless. He gives one knee to the ground, and feels the clutches of death slowly reach for him. Its icy fingers, beckoning him to finally give in and surrender to the eternal slumber that is death. His eyes, they start to get heavier by the minute, his breathing, becomes more labored each second. Her. A light flashes inside his thoughts. He remembers clearly. He remembers why he can’t give in just yet. He closes his eyes, Not because of deaths weight upon them, but to focus on his only glimmer of hope left. The only thing he has left. His vision fades to black at first, and for a moment, death seems to have consumed him. Continue reading “Written by him <3”

Having a Healthy Lifestyle

10597519_688663164557758_730892411_n

I may not be someone who is conscious on what I eat, but I know that a lot of you are and that everyone are going gaga over this whole fitness thing, so I decided to write about it. Since I am naturally slender, which I find rather sad, and that I literally never get full which would lead me to munch on anything that I find delicious, not caring whether it is healthy or not. And so, I would like to discuss the importance of a healthy diet in this recent blog post of mine. It may be hard for me to change my habit of eating unhealthy foods, but I am determined to give it a try. My goal in this is to let all my lovely readers realize that having a healthy lifestyle would not only make you feel good but would also make your life more meaningful. If your ideal body is to have a thigh gap, showing rib bones, arms that look like twigs, a protruding collarbone or anything of the sort, then this is genuinely not for you.

“So, I guess we are who we are for alot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.”

Breathe

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

I am happy to say that I took all of these photos by just using my trusty old Ipad mini. You dont need an expensive DSLR for you to take amazing photos. All you need is the perfect lighting, and a good skill in editing photos. I simply used vsco cam to edit my photos, since that’s what everyone uses and that it’s free. I do not know how to use photoshop. hahaha! I dont need to anyway.  Continue reading “Breathe”

You cannot imagine how much fun i had while searching for images to post for this new blog post of mine, since i absolutely love the 50s and the 60s. I noticed a lot things though, almost all of them were smoking cigarettes at that time and that they were all living at the age where fashion and music were at its peak.
