10 Reasons Why You Should Stop Feeling Conscious About Your Style
With so many different brands and styles that are emerging, it's easy to get carried away and feel that your style does not live up to other's expectations. It could actually get to the point that you'd feel conscious that your fashion taste is not like what you see in magazines or on your Instagram feeds. But in reality, there's actually no reason for you to feel this way! Here's why:
You have your own style that makes you, YOU.
You want to know what makes you your own? Your fashion taste and what you like defines you. Fashion allows you to express yourself and it's important to know that not everyone would be comfortable in wearing the same style as what you prefer—there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.
Fashion is always evolving.
What you like today may not be what you like tomorrow and the same goes for everyone else. We're always so inclined to try out new things and new trends that come out every few months that we're bound to change our style every now and then.
Trends don't last.
Trends come and go, leaving us with empty wallets and a long statement bill for our credit cards. So the next time you feel bad about a trendy top not looking good on you, just remember that there's always time to catch up with the next season's trends anyway!
No one is judging you.
You walk around and you feel nervous that people might be judging you, when the truth is, they're probably thinking the same thing. So instead of wondering what others might think about your OOTD, rock your look with confidence and you'll surely draw in instant GV from the crowd.
You look cute!
No, your mom wasn't lying when she said that you looked amazing because you really do look cute in your outfit! Don't be so hard on yourself. After all, we are our own worst critic. Loosen up a little and embrace your style since only you who rock those 5 inch heels like a boss.
You wear it for yourself—not others.
You don't wear what you wear for others, right? You didn't look in the mirror this morning and think, "that girl in the MRT will definitely love this outfit!" and that's because you shouldn't base your outfits in other people's interests. Wear it because you love it!
There's no point in over thinking!
The more you exude confidence, the more this will carry on to other aspects of your life. You will notice that you tend to worry less about other things as well. You shouldn't have to carry the burden of worrying about the little things so much all the time and that includes fashion.
Trust us, you will be happier.
There's nothing that can compare to wearing your most comfortable outfit and feeling great because of it! Being comfortable in wearing the clothes that you truly like will just bring about happiness like no other.
You'll stay true to yourself and discover what you really like.
Girls tend to uncover they really are deep down by staying true to herself. There's no use to pretend to be someone who you're not and wear outfits you don't even really want to wear. It’s best to just be yourself.
You can't please everyone anyway!
At the end of the day, you really won't please everyone anyway and there's nothing wrong about it. So instead of wasting your time worrying about what others think, just wear what you want confidently and everything will just follow suit.

Hi everyone! I just want to share my first collaboration with my father. I converted two of my digital arts, Oneness and We Got Each Other's Back, into a vase and a bookend. I designed it and he made it into a reality. The Oneness Metal Vase is perfect for dried flowers and or artificial flowers. The We Got Each Other's Back Bookend is made from solid metal in which the cubes can be arranged to the user's liking. Both metal sculptures work as an accent piece that can liven up one's space.

Life is filled with several U-turns and unexpected twists of events and during these times in which silver spoons are nowhere to be found: Our families ensure we still get and experience the best as we survive this pandemic. Here's my song, I wrote back 2 years ago entitled: "Won't Let You Cry" and take time to honor and appreciate our parents as they are the biggest front liners in our lives throughout the years.

It's being happy on your own and loving yourself with all that you are.
We've been chasing love only to realize that it's not gonna work out that way. The right time will come that you will be blessed with the one you deserve. The one who also prayed to be with you. The one who will make you believe in love again. Let life surprise you. Hang in there.
The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.
Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.
Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.
For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?
Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
Literally to begin with, I am writing with little shaky hands because this is the last time I went for a vacation like most of us must have and can’t plan any for now. The coronavirus outbreak has compelled us to stay at home for our safety and others in the vicinity.
I remember how I penned down my year 2020 to be the most remarkable year of my life in the hope of doing everything I desired for a long time and overcoming few obstacles. Whilst planning things ahead, I forgot to truly value all of things in the present.
I remember being chipper and grateful for my last summer vacation but now I feel I should’ve valued each and every moment. Considering the current gnarly situation, I want each one us to motivate ourselves to look for a positive side and to make the most of our time no matter the situation.
Make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up in these circumstances and reckon that there are a lot of good things for us in the store. We’ll have the most amazing season of our life post pandemic. Let’s accept for the change and become the change. Propagate love and only love.
