My utmost favorite blog that really pushed me to start my own is

She is a fashion icon here in the Philippines but even before the limelight, she was just a regular fashion blogger. She has now gained recognition for all her fabulous posts from day 1. Like me, she has also changed up her hairstyle too often than necessary and I always check her blog for some valuable tips. Her blog is light, clean and well-presented and has the best OOTDs I have ever seen. Her experiences shared with her readers showcase where she’s been roaming other countries and makes me inspired to do a little exploring on my own. Tricia now has a published book on the shelves and one of these days, I hope to be able to do the same with my fiction novel on wattpad –that is still unfinished LOL ( Tricia even documented her wedding journey on her website. Now that’s dedication!
