Hello, 2015!

Happy New Year, everyone!

On New Year's Day, the boyfriend's family invited us to a spontaneous lunch out so I had to throw this outfit together within 2 minutes. I figured, although I'm not superstitious in any way, that I'd put on this red (always a lucky color for the Chinese) top with polka dots (believed to bring prosperity for the year if you wear it on New Year's Day) and pair it with something relaxed enough to walk around in the mall for the rest of the afternoon and for a simple dinner party at home afterwards. Added my most comfortable pair of sandals in gold for some sparkle. I'm all for positive things for 2015!

Floppy hat from Topshop
I mentioned in my end of the year post that I will be leaving the country very soon and 2015 finally arriving has ushered in a wave of different emotions. It has finally started to sink in that my days in my beloved Cebu City are numbered for now.

This year, I am steeling myself up to face what I know will be by far, the most difficult challenges I've encountered so far in life but I entrust it all to God so really, what have I to fear? Everything will work out and I am excited for what He has in store for me!

My goals for the year are very clear in my mind and I'm determined and focused on accomplishing them all. I can, I will, and I shall! I just have so much hope for 2015. Here's to a great year!


P.S.: My blog reached 200 Bloglovin followers yesterday, what a great way to start the year! Thank you for following along. My journey is about to get more exciting so I hope you join me on this joyride. See you around the blogosphere. ;)
