A True RayBan Legend Rocks!
I’m back from the grave, seriously I want to apologize for being MIA for the whole month. I was just lost and been lazy this november that I hated myself so much because of my un-productiveness. But nonetheless I’m back and hopefully for good.
Today, I’m going to talk about how to be a legend. Like most of us all know about how RayBan has been a legend and even though I wasn’t born yet I know for a fact that its legendary cause my parents used to wear them since I was a baby. I can see photos from the past of my parents and relatives wearing the Iconic eyewear brand so when I grew up I said to myself I had to have them too. Way back then I used to borrow my mom’s pair of RayBans and play dress up in front of the camera, now that I have my own pair of sunnies I still use my mom’s pair cause it goes out of style.
Note: Please forbid some of my photos are blurry but they are too pretty not to post. 😀
Since the second semester started I wasn’t feeling the way I used before like preparing ahead of the day thinking what I’m gonna wear at school and making myself busy playing dress up. Honestly I wasn’t able to move on from failing a subject from the previous semester and I think it affected the fact of me having outfit shots, being productive and being fasyon at school. I was so depressed and felt like quitting the things I loved the most and now that I weigh things out I thought that I shouldn’t quit blogging, experimenting outfits, writing out my insights and being a student. I feel the pressure burning inside me that I felt crying my whole life but hey! it’s not gonna stop me from believing and pursuing my dreams, honestly being a civil engineering student is tough specially to average students like me but I know I have my mistakes too because I didn’t do my best so I failed, but still I believe that there will always be a room for improvement and this time no room for mistakes. I need to be the best that I can be for my family and also for my child, I always feel negative when it comes to failures but since I had a child I can’t be weak because someone is looking up at me and there will come a time that she will do the things I do too. I can’t show her that her mom is weak and a cry lady, I need to be strong for my child so she will be strong for me too. Another thing that bugs me is the worth of writing down here in my little blog, I used to ask myself is it worth it? Does it gives me something in return? Do I need to splurge for clothes, shoes, accessories and things that doesn’t fit my budget? Does it make sense taking outfit shots and being the center of the commotion. Many thoughts that pops in my mind and I always think that I can’t be like those fashion bloggers who are very pretty from head to toe, and have all the things they want. I used to envy those people who most likely have it all but I know they deserved and worked hard for it. I have this thing that always put myself on the middle of things and pity myself because I can’t have the things I want. Soon I realize it’s all about timing and GODS plan, patience is all I need specially deep faith. Though I don’t have all the money in the world, I have a complete family and such a blessed life that is the most important thing that I forgot most of the time. I know most of you felt that way too, but being rich nor popular is not the standard of being happy and contented. In my own experience I was a brat, honestly a spoil brat cause I was the only child of my father and youngest in my mother side. I was given the privilege to have the things that my sisters haven’t got before and I was spoiled to the point that I act so bad when I haven’t got what I wanted. But it lessen as I grew up, but my point is I used to have the newest gadgets, expensive clothes and things but after that I wasn’t still contented and wanted more. The feeling of having what you wanted but after a week or so I wanted a new one and it doesn’t stop their, you only feed your wants but not what you need. I came to a point that I asked myself did I need this? Or I just want to have it to feel like I’m happy but deep inside no, because it’s just material things.
I thought of my every day routine, my splurge everyday and the wants that I listed in my cork board. And I asked myself after getting all those things, I will be happy enough? Do I will stop their and be contented? Does the luxury will replace my family and friends? Having all the money in the world will give an access to heavens gate? Strange thinking right? But have you asked yourself those things? I don’t say that having the luxury in the world is bad but we don’t need to have them if we don’t really need them cause we can’t bring them to our grave or to death. We need to stop lurking for the material in the world cause after a while we will leave them here on earth and we will no longer have them. We don’t need to treat our shoes, clothes, bags and every gadgets as if they can save us to eternity, I thought about the lecture and sermon from the church and I thought 70-80% of the people give time to unimportant things that they neglected the most important ones and I myself is part of that. I have so many thoughts but this topic is being a long telenovela already. I wish you weren’t tired of reading yet? LOLForgive my long speech, I haven’t written this things for a long time so just let me do so. heheAs I was saying, rich and fame does not gives us the guarantee of good and happy life also contentment. I myself wasn’t contented with the things I have that I came to this point that I asked myself did I need all this things? Connecting this to being a legend, does the legend heroes, people and the history proves that being rich and popular gave them the privilege of being contented? I salute all the simple people who can be as simple as they can be even though they can be rich and famous, they still want to live normal and live simple cause once your injected to money and fame you can’t take away the lust of money and wanting to have more. The perfect example of a simple person is Secretary Jessie Robredo who was not well-known until he died, the people didn’t know the simple life that he had until the recognition of his pure public service was acknowledged. For me thats a great example of being a legend, I myself what to have a life-like he had because I don’t want to live a life full of wants and likes until such time that I’ll trade my family into my misery. It’s hard to let go of the things we used to have but still we value whats important is a big step for our change. Step by step we can be simple in our way and each one of us can be a legend. I myself is a legend for my daughter cause I’m her mother and though I’m still coping up from being a mom, in time she will look up to me and proudly say that I was a legend mom:)|Top Forever 21||Pants Red Girl|
Now being a fasyon student/mom is quite an interesting cause I need to budget everything, I can’t be a compulsive shopper like I used before and being a shopaholic is now a crime for me. Honestly I’m now a sale lover and a deal expert, recently I hoarded stuffs from a mall which had a sale and I’m very happy cause the stuff that I wanted was slashed off up to 80% now would you believe the saying that’s patience is a virtue? hehe. Anyway, I bought stuffs not only for myself but also for my business. I thought why do I always buy stuffs that I don’t usually use if I can sell them and earn money as well. That’s when I value my money and spending wise on my purchases. Little by little I learn to manage what I needed the most and the things I should let go off. I sold most of my clothes and thinking of selling the shoes I haven’t worn for a long time. Though they are valuable to me, I should not love them cause they are only material stuffs and can easily be replaced. Plus they served me well and I want to hand them to others:)Lastly I’m going to talk about my insecurities which is part of my dilemma having this blog, when I first have this blog I wasn’t confident enough to showcase my own self. Each one of us have insecurities and yes having insecurity is a bad attitude cause we are not made perfect. That’s connected to my thoughts and topic a while ago and this insecurities will also lead to wanting to have more and being not contented with what we have. If you connect the dots, it’s all negativity and lust for money, fame, beauty is the reason why most people don’t become successful cause we wanted some more and more. All I can say is, trust in the LORD and he will give you the rest. Let’s believe and have faith that whatever we have right now is exactly what we needed at the first place.|RayBan Sunnies||Superb Bazaar Bracelet & Rings|

Though I don’t win this contest of RayBan (Dram! But seriously!), I still love the brand and will keep supporting it until it become a history. We, you and me are all legends in different aspects though we are not famous and wasn’t written on the books, each one of us is written in GOD’s heart and that’s the most important thing of all. So remember, whether we don’t have all the money in the world we can be happy and be a living legend no matter what. Because everybody rocks most specially the legendary eyewear brand RayBan:D Rock ON! Live life as if it’s the last.
I would also like to thank Miss Lissa Kahayon for inspiring me in writing down this blog post. Honestly she’s one of the kind fashion blogger, first I thought she’s snob cause she’s popular but when I met her it was so surreal cause she’s one of us too, she’s very kind and bubbly:) She reminded me of my eldest sister cause she’s a bit perfectionist in a good way and definitely she worked hard for what she have right now. To Miss Lissa, I hope you can forgive me of thinking the way I thought of you before but now your truly my inspiration and you are a Living Legend for me:)
Hope you didn’t get bored while reading this post. Have a good day!
