Hello! I would like to share to you what I wore on my special day, my moving up day, My Graduation Day!
I know it's been 5 months since that day but I just want to tell you what I've been through to find what to wear.
In the following months, some of you will graduate from college, apply in the company you've been eyeing on, get hired, earn money, meet someone, get married, have kids, and just live happily ever after. Too fast, I know.hahaha
But before all those things take place, you first have to choose and find that perfect outfit. The struggle is real, believe me. I've been to places, shops, malls, boutiques, etc just to spot the right one.
I wasn't choosy or finicky. I just want to look elegant and beautiful on that day. This dress I wote wasn't my first choice. Actually, Greenhills was the last place in my mind where I would go looking for my graduation dress. When I went there, I got swamped with thousands of dresses, all ready to go up the stage. I walked around with my cousins and I came across this dress. I loved it the moment I layed my eyes on it. I love the cut, the print, the color, everything! So I purchased it right away. But I did purchase a few more so I had a lot to choose from.

I paired this lovely dress with Parisian because I love Parisian shoes. It just made the dress formal and fit for the event. And then that morning, my mom surprise me with a set of gold earrings, necklace, and bracelet. Oh how perfect, right?! She told me they would bring out a pulsing aura, and they sure did!
For the finishing touch, I just put on light day makeup from Maybelline. It channeled the youth-going-to-grownup-world in me plus it made my me simple yet elegant.


1. Go for cuts that will highlight or accentuate your body type.
2. Choose the color which is right for your skin.
3. Don't or Never go for super short dresses. You'll either look like a "you know" or like your going to a party.
4. Minimal accessories.
5. Go easy on the makeup.

I hope I was able to help you in choosing your future grad dress.
Good luck and Congratulations in advance!

Yah, I know what you're thinking. I know my entry today's a bit dark (or even Darker). If you know me, you'll say that this is not me because I'm always smiling in my posts, always bubbly, laughing, and just about anything light and happy. But if you really know me well, you'll figure out why I'm like this. Ever felt, even once in your life, like the whole world's against you? Problems, trials, school, work, haters, responsibilities, time, fate, health, etc.
How does it feel feeling all of those? Some might just explode and...Oblivion. But not me. I was born not a fighter but to be a fighter. There will be times that life will exhaust and wear you out but you should never give in. People will give you a tough time but who are they to dictate you and tell you who you are, right? Just be you. I know it's hard but just be you. You can never please everyone. Hate your job? Think of the thousands of people who wish they have one or are looking for one. Tired to go to school? Look at those street children hoping to enter a class. Hate having a lot of time and doing nothing? Think of those who are fihting just to live one more day. Problems and trials? Don't think about them because they'll never go out of stock. Issues on shortage of love life? Don't find it. It'll come at the right time.

You may have lost the battle today but you will win the war.

Just enjoy what you have and be thankful for that! It's not everyday you're given that opportunity. 
Want to be heard? Speak.
Want to be seen? Appear.
Want to be respected? Respect.
Want to be successful? Strive harder.
Want to be happy? Smile.
Want to be loved? Love.
Want to be blessed? Pray.
