2015, for me, is dubbed as “The Year I Got Kicked Out of My Comfort Zone.” I graduated from university, found a job, and bravely faced the world unknown. I have to say, I was very cautious and lonely most of the time because I missed my old life – a life surrounded with friends and laughter. However, time breezed through and I have realized a lot of things about the world unknown. One of these amazing things is the discovery of blogging, now it is a big part of my life and as I look back to my old posts, I realize why I do this in the first place. Here are my top posts of 2015… getting reminiscent in 3… 2… 1…
Top Post #1: My Very First Beauty Blog Post
Beauty is one of the focal points of my blog and to share my July favorites with the world is the most daunting yet exciting experience that I have ever done this year. I am so, so happy that my WordPress family liked my blog post on beauty and positively commented about it. I felt a wave of relief and the positive feedback just fueled my motivation to blog more.

Top Post #2: My First Travel Blog Post
To travel is a dream of mine and when I do get the chance, it is a must to take pictures of the place, note my experience, and share some travel tips as well. My first travel-related post is about GrabTaxi, back when it was a shiny, new thing in my area and to be a part of their media launch in the City of Pines is an overwhelming experience. I immediately shared on my blog what GrabTaxi is all about. If you haven’t read it yet you may check it out here – Transform the Way You Move with GrabTaxi
Top Post #3: A Unique Spa Experience
As a beauty blogger, I am expected to have a wide knowledge on beauty and makeup. Under the big umbrella of beauty, the spa experience is probably one of my blind spots haha. I am a newbie at massages and indulging myself in this luxury and GrandSpa was definitely a unique experience. I am happy to share this with you, my dear readers, and hopefully newbies at spas and hopefully give you them an idea about it.

Top Post #4: Out-of-Town Experience
Another first for me and one which I am glad of the positive feedback is about my trip to Boracay. Paradise Island was nothing short of beautiful and just to be in that moment made me feel special. In my blog, I talked about my experience at the same time some happy tips for first timers at Boracay. If you haven’t read it yet you may check it out here – A Boracay Dream
