“Victory is sweetest when you've known defeat."

Hello hello hello~!

I said I would try to update every day and I already broke that rule. Whoops! But I'll keep trying anyways.

So on Tuesday I ended up going shopping all day. I think I truly know to save up now. I bought so much it's making me feel guilty....

Moving on, on Wednesday there was an earthquake! I felt it!  And it messed up the phone lines and internet~

And finally Thursday I was preparing for a family trip.

And that's what I did for 4 days! Exciting, no? /sarcasm. Lol no, I've just been pretty bored lately and I haven't been able to sketch much designs because of...designer's block? I don't know what to call it but I just don't have any ideas/inspiration.


So moving on to less depressing matters and more fashion-y ones, here's a new segment!

Article of the Day!
LOL I couldn't think of a better name so it sounds like I'm going to post a newspaper article. But no, I'm just going to post one shirt, skirt, shorts or jeans etc that I own and give it a little review. Hopefully in the future I can start purchasing online. So the first article of the day ever is from one of my favourite brands for their outerwear:

This particular sweater doesn't have a name.

Description: It's a lighter tone of black-gray. The buttons are a yellowy-brass colour and the strings that link the buttons together as well as the trim on the collar or more golden-yellow. The strings have a loop at the end of them that you loop around the buttons, so that's also how you can take the sweater off as well as put it on.
Review: As pretty as this sweater is on the outside, the inside is a little bit cheaper in quality. It feels kind of coarse and rough, thus making it sort of itchy/uncomfortable to wear. Also the strings tying the buttons together are easily twisted and wrinkled, making it appear even cheaper/messy. 
All and all, it's a nice sweater but it could have been made a bit better quality-wise.


And that wraps up my post for today! I may not be able to post for the next couple of days because as I previously stated, I'm going on a trip. So until then,

What, you may ask?

Well I've lived another year! I think that's quite the success :)

In the past few months I've actually gone from being cynical and depressed to almost always happy! I have lots to thank for that, my friends, my family and OPTIMISM~

Anyways, the purpose of this blog is just to express myself. I've always wanted to be a fashion designer, and I love blogging so I'll try meshing the two together as much as I can. I'm not one to always be in style, although spotting trends is something I also enjoy.

Oh and before I forget, the name of this blog, Honestly Believe, comes from the fact that life is so much simpler if you just, well, honestly believe! No ifs or buts. Just Believe. That's something I try to practice everyday.

So who am I, exactly? Well one, you could read the mini bio on the left, or you could be reading this in which I will tell you.

I'm special. I'm different. So is everyone else. I don't think there's a single person on this Earth that is EXACTLY the same as someone else. So in a sense, I'm just another person in the 6 billion on this planet but I'm one girl who will try my best to make my dreams come true.

I'm not dedicated or very smart, I'm just a big dreamer. But what's the point of dreaming if you never intend to reach it?

You only live once. If you believe in reincarnation then you'll live many times, but you'll never be the same person. So why not try your hardest while you're still the you that you are right now? You deserve to be happy no matter who you are.

I know for a fact that if I don't try to do what I want, to essentially be who I want, I'll regret it.

I'm starting to ramble about nonsense so I'll just end this post with two quotes to live by:

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams. ~Ashley Smith

Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.
~Howard Thurman

P.S I'll be trying to update everyday!
