A Fresh Start
What fresh hell is this?
Journal | Entry No. 1
Okay, I find sunset better than sunrise. Not just because I’m never going to be a morning person but also because I find it more meaningful or so to say hopeful.
Imagine something ending, I prefer skipping the drama part and opt for preparing and celebrating the new beginning that’s about to come. Somehow like this new website and blog after a year of being inexistent in the web world, I can feel something starting. I may not know it just yet but I do know that I am grateful for how things are finally catching up on me.
Then I can finally say, a new Hello after staying hopeful in this sunset-phase I'm currently in.
As of now, I’m still here. Figuring things out and I bet there are hundreds of articles (like this) that can assure me that it’s a normal part of adulthood. So right now, I’m basically just enjoying life. Taking one step at a time while preparing for the best. Not much of a good strategy but it’s the only one I find practical as of the moment.
Here's a flatlay shot of my daily go-to essentials.
A cult fave is the Mac Flat Out Fabulous retro matte lipstick that gives you a happy pop of color and the classic Chanel Rouge Coco Antoinette.
I also made a deal with myself to skip the contact lenses and forcefully make my eyeglasses my new BFF.
My furry phone with my fave Fendi charm just because they're cute (lol).
A throwback polaroid of me in 2012 to remind myself how far I survived this life.
Always have a watch and perfume!
My lucky Forever21 pen that somehow seems to have an infinite supply of ink (?)
My iPad and a good book to keep the boredom away. Currently reading The Fashion Book from Phaidon.com
And of course, lots of rings and chains to glitter and shimmer my way to life. ✨
Hope you enjoyed this first blog post which is also more of a journal post in my newly made website by me. I must say it feels good to finally have my own space again.
So here's a thought to ponder on, lyrics from a great song by Klangkarussell, Netzwerk (Falls Like Rain):
I look up to the sky above
Full of sweet release
From the days that I waste
Trying to fight for space
Well I know what my heart believes
I won't run when the storm clouds come
I won't turn away
Cause if your eye's on the ground
When the night comes down
You only see the stars when they fall like rain
That's it for now,
