To the New Year and New Beginnings

Happy New Year, everybody and welcome, 2016! While 2015 has been a good year, of course, we'll always look forward to the new year simply because for most of us, it is an indication of a new beginning; another chance; opportunities and possibilities that life has to offer. I don't know, but for me, the new year is always a good motivation for me to look back and evaluate myself like, knowing my strengths to maintain and improve and of course, my weaknesses so that I will know what to change and also improve to make myself better.

Whenever I think of the words "new year", apart from what I mentioned above, for me it also signifies new experiences because, no matter how many things you've been through, no year is exactly the same as before, right? So even though 2015 is your best year, there's still a great possibility that 2016 will be better than 2015; or if 2015 was not your year, make 2016 YOUR year then. :)

It just depends on you, on how you'll make your 2016. It's your fresh start, so go and make it your best year so far! And when I said go, I also meant to say travel. ;)

So when 2015 left, winter season also left along with it. Which means, summer is just a few months away! Yay! Make the most out of 2016, especially the weekends because unlike 2015, 2016 has less holidays. With that, I suggest that you love your own and explore the Philippines first, especially during summer since we have a lot of beautiful beaches! Even if you live in the city, trust me, the beach is only a few hours away, so plan ahead, plan your trips as early as now so you'll save money and it will be less hassle on your part.

Now that summer is fast approaching, it's also practical to start shopping for your summer OOTDs as early as now because a lot of brands and shops are offering their items waaaay cheaper. Since Christmas season just finished, expect a lot of clearance sales everywhere. But why bother going to the mall if you can shop at the convenience of your home right? If you're like me who gets home from work late in evening but want to shop and save money, online shopping is definitely going to be your best friend. Convenient, fast and sometimes relatively cheaper than in the mall.

If you've got your 2016 trips planned as early as 2015 like I do or just starting to make plans, don't forget to start planning and investing for your summer must-haves too. Ready your summer essentials and start with a pair of comfy rubber flip flops from ZALORA! They're now on sale so you can take advantage of owning a pair from Ipanema, Gelattto, Sanuk, Banana Peel and a whole lot more for less! Plus, if you're on a budget, they also have flip flops for as low as Php 99! Wow. All that with just a few clicks and at the comfort of your home or just about wherever you are right now. Easy peasy.

So for 2016, I plan and intend to travel more and explore the Philippines and what it has to offer; to slowly go out of my comfort zone and try new things and live life more. And just to keep you inspired and motivated like me, to stick to what I just mentioned, let me end this post with a quote...
