For the past months every time I start writing a blog post, I end up losing inspiration to write by the first sentence. Writer's block has been something I've been battling with for years now, although I have encountered it a number of times before, I still have no idea how to deal with it. This is probably the outcome of over thinking things or doubting too much but whatever the reasons are, I know this is just an obstacle I have to face. 

I love blogging. It opened doors for me I didn’t even know existed. My reading habits and writing skills have improved tremendously because of it. I've also become more updated with the latest news, trends and technology of online marketing. What started as a creative outlet and an escape to my day-to-day life back in 2012, exists as so much more than that now. I got invited to a number of major events, got to try great products first-hand for blog reviews and got to interact with different people, which I can now proudly call my friends. It is through blogging that I get to really express myself like how I would usually write in my diary, and the only difference is that I get to share it with the world.


When I started going to college I wasn't expecting that I'd have a hard time juggling updating my blog and doing school works. But it wasn't long after when I realized I had to set my priorities straight. I was on a blog hiatus for a year or two until I decided to come back right after I graduated. However, it was not as easy as I thought it would. I lost some of my consistent readers, I no longer receive request for product reviews from sponsors and I barely get invited to events anymore.

After spending months and months making excuses for why I haven't been updating my blog regularly, I finally snapped back to reality and realized how much I need to get back on track. I must admit, picking up where I left off is really frustrating but I shouldn't give up. Like what I've just said, I love my blog! I love writing and being able to share my thoughts about various things to people all over the world. So for the past few weeks, I really devoted my time in fixing this site. It's helluva lot of work but was definitely worth it. Well, if I wanted to renew my commitment to my blog, this is the first step that I should take.


I'm not writing this post just for the very reason that I want people to know why I haven't been blogging for a while but this is also dedicated to those who are in the verge of giving up something they have invested on for a long time. Just know that you are not alone and someone else is going through the same thing. Always keep this in mind, "The minute you think of giving up, think of the reasons why you held on so long.” SO KEEP GOING! Don't stop no matter how bad things get. We got this :)

It's half past midnight and Joni Mitchell is on shuffle. How is that my creative juices flow well at this ungodly hour? I should probably take advantage of this moment anyway since this doesn't happen a lot...


Oh Joni... it would be such an understatement when I say Joni Mitchell made such a huge impact in my life. When I was a little girl, our Dad would play her songs in the car during road trips and most of the time I'd either sleep through the whole album or ask Dad to skip it to the next artist. It wasn't until I'm all grown up that I started appreciating her music. Choosing a "favorite" from her album is extremely difficult because each and every song has a unique element to it but if you ask me what song made me the most emotional, it's definitely "A Case of You".


"Go to him. Stay with him if you can. But be prepared to bleed". If you listen to the song, this line really struck me the most. Joni is giving us a warning that love comes with getting hurt and we should always be prepared for it. When we love someone, there is no guarantee that we won't get hurt; in fact, the people we love the most are the ones that will cause us the most pain. One of the best, but often scariest feelings of being in love is feeling so vulnerable and knowing how much that person could hurt us, but we can't go through a relationship and worry the entire time that we are going to get hurt. In hindsight, its almost inevitable even if its on a small scale. That's why it is very important to have a positive mindset and treat the person we're in a relationship with the way we want to be treated. Although, this may not entirely work to other people but at least you know in your heart that you're doing the right thing. Let's just leave it to their conscience.


Love talk aside, let's head on to my outfit for today. Aside from Joni's incredible music, I also admire her fashion sense. One of the reasons why I got so engrossed in her is because her style is very bohemian. So, here I am channeling my inner Joni Mitchell with a long dress from ZARA and round daisy glasses from ALDO. What do you think of this Joni inspired look?
