This April marks my 4th year in blogging! For those of you who didn't know, I actually started a blog (more of a personal blog than a style blog) way back in college which was almost ten years ago -- from LiveJournal, Multiply and finally, my home, Blogspot. I have shared my entire life in the Internet through the criticizing eyes of many people I barely even know. There were the bad, the hurtful, the unsolicited but there were also the good, the proudest, the flattering moments nothing else could have given me. This blog is my baby. I started it on my own without anybody's help. How many times can you say that about something? Of course, I would not be here without my readers, my photographers, sponsors, friends and family who believed and supported me when I said, "I still blog up to this day because it makes me happy. There is no other explanation than that." Without these people, I would not have achieved so much and so I share the biggest highlights of my 4-year career with all of you. I hope I have inspired many of you, in one way or the other. THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!
Six months after my first blog post was published came my first ever feature for CANDY MAGAZINE Philippines!
Who wouldn't want to be called a Trendy Cosmo Chick? I was beyond ecstatic to be featured in COSMOPOLITAN Philippines almost 4 years ago!
The first ever printed magazine I was on was at METRO MAGAZINE Philippines when I was featured in the In the Metro Style Spy Page (also almost 4 years ago)!
Four months after moving to Canada, I almost fainted when I was named TOP 15 CANADIAN FASHION BLOGS by MSN/Fashionism!
In 2011, I got a tweet from MTV with the link to this feature. I almost peed in my pants when I saw that I was on Bloggers Look We Love!
Waking up sick with a stomach flu, my phone was non-stop when one day on November 2011, I was named the (1st place) Next Holts Muse by Holt Renfrew (and received a $500 shopping money for that)!
In 2012, I was on the list with all the other top AB blogs as Alberta's Top 10 Style Bloggers by nonetheless, FASHION MAGAZINE!
Last year, I started writing and sharing weekly tips about style and the latest trends on Fashion Magazine as a part of their coveted THE STYLE PANEL!
This year started out fresh (literally) when I was chosen as one of the Style Ambassadors for one of my favourite (if not my favourite) Canadian brands, JOE FRESH!
THE GIRL WITH THE MESSY HAIR TURNS 4 but one of the biggest breakthroughs in my blogging career is yet to come. I cannot wait to share it with all of you! Stay tuned xx
