Things I Would Tell My Teenage Bea

This blog post is in celebration of my 23rd birthday! I know, I am OLD. 😦 So instead of a makeup blog post yet again. I decided to write something like this! Hope you enjoy it! xx


 

Never cut yourself short.

I know you aren’t the best at Trigonometry, Chemistry or Chinese. But your grades on paper are far less important than the values and skills you will soon learn when you graduate out of high school. Don’t you ever feel disheartened by others or by results you didn’t expect but let that be motivation for you to keep going. You are far more capable of doing great things than you think. Never sell yourself short. You got this girl!

The friends you surround yourself with define you.

Like I sent before, you will be meeting all kinds of people. You will discover some rutts and meet some diamonds, its a process. You will loose some friends along the way, and that is okay. Surround yourself with people you love and who love you in return. You have yet to meet of an amazingly passionate and driven group of people in your life. You’ll know when you meet them.

Don’t do anything that you don’t want to do.

This does not only go for you, teenage Bea to hear this, but every girl going through peer pressure. We all get to an age when we meet different types of people(good or bad). You will eventually be experiencing parts of life that everyone goes through. But at the end of the day, it is your decision if you want to do it of not. Don’t do it because all your friends are doing it. Be your own person. Be your own boss.

Take care Beautiful!

5 Things You Should Do Right Now To Be Successful

pexels-photo-212286

How successful you are really depends on your own definition of success. Are you planning on landing your dream job anytime soon? Maybe open a new business? or just start to have a happy and healthy life? I am guilty of looking at habit and routines of successful women and try to incorporate some that can work for my life as well. But it is definitely easier said than done. 

Are you willing to start your own journey for success? Here is what you might want to try.

**Disclaimer: I am not saying that this is the only way for you to become ‘successful’. Choose what works best for you.**


  1. Develop a hobby

I think that having a hobby aside from working your regular 9-5 is so important to have a work-life balance. Find out what you enjoy  doing outside of work and I guarantee you that you won’t regret it! In my case, my hobby is this blog that you are reading right now. This blog has helped me develop my writing and entrepreneurial skills in more ways than one. Aside from my blog, I also enjoy working out and going outdoor trekking. Never stop trying new things!

2. Find a Mentor

I think having a mentor can make a huge difference to your career. He/she doesn’t have to be a CEO or a President of some fancy corporation. But someone who you aspire to be or someone who can push you to achieve your career goals. Always help those who are willing to learn!

3. Surround Yourself With The Right People

I definitely think your journey to success depends on the people you surround yourself with. I think that it is important to create a support team that cheers you on and never doubts you, as you should be for them as well. There will always be some negativity one way or another, but surrounding yourself with equally ambitious people will help you motivated when things get rough! A mentor can also definitely be one of those people!

4. Learn One New Thing A Day

Kind of random but learning one new thing a day will help you boost your brain power. like staying up-to-date with current events! Whether you learn a super random fact, or you are trying to learn one new exotic word from the dictionary, it might just pay off one day.

5. Take Care of Yourself

As your success grows(because it eventually will), you will begin to realize that you aren’t getting any younger and you need to start looking out for yourself more than before. You are your biggest asset and never forget that success can bring some much craziness and happiness into your life. But can also bring stress and depression as well. So know your limits! Relax, work out, keep your body healthy and treat your body like a temple(keep it zen). What a difference it’ll make!

Much Love To Renegade Folk | Brand Focus

DSC00271

I think this is my very first brand focus for a fashion brand, so forgive me if I am not the best. I initially started following Renegade Folk on their Instagram account, looking for a pair to replace my beaten up go-to sandals. But I ended up picking up three pairs ina span of a month and a half! I am not the most stylish or on trend woman(girl, lady), but when I like something, I will get them in all colors, shapes and sizes. 

I love how Renegade’s style direction is very minimal, effortless and goes equally well in an office chic, smart casual attire(perfect for the everyday work girl or Tita of Cebu). I wish I found out about this brand earlier! 


DSC00078The first pair I picked up was Her in Tan in a Size 8. I would like to call this very favorite Sunday shoe. I always wear this with a pair of jeans, colored skinny slacks or if I want to put a little effort, a frilly white sundress. The leather was a tad bit tight on me on the first try but it moulded to my feet eventually.DSC00085

My easy experience (as a whole) in getting this pair made want to pick up another pair ASAP! Did I tell you that you get a discount on your next RF shoe after you buy your first one? This pair comes in four other shades! Tan, Light Taupe, White and Zebra. I want to buy them all!

DSC00114The second pair I got was Hope in Tan. My closet rule is whenever I get a new pair of shoes or new clothes, I always throwout or give an old one away. And my old strappy sandals definitely needed some replacing(is that a good enough excuse to pick up another one?).

DSC00130RF’s unique leather is something I have only experienced with their products. They aren’t rigid, potent in smell or uncomfortable. They can even stand rain! This design is even more versatile in wear and is more office appropriate for client meetings and what not. This comes in three other colors, Tan, Light Taupe and White. Please make one in Gold too!

My last pair for this brand focus on Renegade Folk is Better Together in Light Taupe. I have been eyeing this style for months now. The Tita in me just couldn’t stop thinking about this design and all the ways I could wear it to work and other gatherings. Ugh! The possibilities are endless with this one.

DSC00237I choose a Light Taupe because I wanted something different from the usual palette in my shoe closet(just beige and black, tbh). This is just as comfortable to wear walking around town or just sitting in the office. I know this specific design isn’t ‘original’, but I must add that the leather they use for this makes all the difference. Love love love!

To the Folks at Renegade Folk, thank you for creating such an amazing shoe company that caters to all the basic girls out there(me). You really know what a girl wants in a shoe and more. Keep doing your thaaang!

Till my next pair! ❤
