A Letter To My Style Crush
Dear Kryz Uy,
I have thought long and hard about writing this letter without sounding too much of a fangirl. Putting together words to express how much I love your blog, your style, and your personality is quite easy.But I definitely don't want to scare you off at first read.
I actually had the chance to meet and interview you during the Candy Fair 2012. Just the fact that I would be seeing you got me excited, but getting to talk to you thrilled me even more! As starstruck as I was, I had to contain myself throughout our quick chat.
And speaking of Candy, it was how I discovered you. Candy Magazine's Style Diaries introduced me to your blog, Thirstythought. The first few posts I read caused me to come back frequently. After a few more visits, I was officially a new follower of your blog! It's always a joy to click the "Read More" arrow that leads to the next page of surprises. Despite having no new posts to read, previously published posts are still worth re-reading. I'm sure the other gazillion of readers can relate to this. I know it's not just me dreaming that one day, I'd be able to dress just like you.
You being my style crush could probably be similar to how you feel about the liquid leggings you own. Yes, it might be weird but you see, you overuse and abuse your leggings. In my case, I repeatedly find myself scrolling up and down your blog and going from page to page without ever getting tired of whatever you post. You manage to make every style work—from girly to sporty to edgy! It's just like how versatile and compatible liquid leggings are with every season of the year. The only difference, I guess, is that I'm not on the hunt for a new Kryz Uy. Who am I kidding? No one could simply replace my style inspiration!
You're someone who even at her 20s could still be able to unleash the 6-year-old kid inside her. You're someone who has become such an inspiration to those who hope to achieve success at a young age. You're someone who could mix and match pieces of clothing to fit every event or adventure. I could mention a whole lot more, but it would take forever. There,s one last thing I'd like to say, though. You're the one who proved that despite having been in a state similar to Andy's in The Devil Wears Prada, there's no giving up. Instead, we only need to work a little harder and believe that we could overcome anything, be anything we dream to be.
And with that, here's to one of the most stylish Filipina bloggers, who inspires us all one outfit post at a time!
The Candy Girl at heart,
What're you up to today? Submit your OOTD, fanfic, essay, school project, org event, a pic of your latest hobby, or anything you want to be posted on the Candy Bulletin page!
Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
