Hang in There

Aye Mates!

How’s life? Mine has been okay I guess. Still struggling with my thesis proposal doe, but at least I am determined that I’m going to do qualitative research based thesis since I’m not that good with math but yet I’m an accounting student lol. So that’s for the update of my life. How about yours? Let me know, I’m curious!

As from my last video “Office Look Makeup Tutorial + WorkingFrom Home vs Going to The Office #ChellesThoughts”, ps go click the link and watch it, don’t forget to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to join me familia. I created a new series called #ChellesThoughts, it’s about my personal thoughts regarding certain topics and yesterday I talked about working from home compared to going to the office. I personally prefer going to the office since I have the excuse to buy new clothes for work lol even tough working from home is the best thing on earth since you don’t have to wake up early in the morning (talking about flexible working hours). Going to the office here for me means working for a company, I prefer that because I get stable income and I think that what’s really matter to me. Working from home here means being a full-time blogger and youtuber etc, I know some of you here earns more by doing blog and youtube rather than basic workers, but since I’m not that famous (HA!) I don’t really earn much #letsbereal. 

The reason why I’m doing blog and youtube at the first place is because I just want to channel out my personal style and photography. Since I’m very interested with fashion, photography, beauty and writing ever since I was a kid. Blogging and youtube channel are my platforms to channel out all of that, at first I didn’t know that people notice my blog or ever read it, I’m doing it purely just for fun. When I first started blogging some of my friends talk said nasty stuff and I was afraid that they’ll unfriend me so I took a break and wrote down my blog on private. As I grow up I realized why hide when this is what I’m good at, this is me and the only thing I can be proud of so I started to make my blog public gain. Who knows turns out there are people that share the same interest and stories as I do. I’m really grateful for every single one of you that read my blog and watches me on my youtube channel. Who knows from blogging and youtube I could make some virtual friends (I’m very socially awkward unicorn in real life) here and it’s so much fun! So yes I never thought of earning income from blogging and youtube. I’m so thankful as well for all brands that ever collabing with me. 

If I could go back and time travel, here’s what I would say to my 12-years-old self “hang in there! Just keep doing what you always do. As long as it makes you happy, just do it. What others said about you and your life doesn’t really matter. There will always be people that hate your or jealous of you, you can’t always please everyone and it’s okay. Be yourself no matter what. It’s your life. Make the most out of it.”

This is quite a long post eh? Wish could write longer version of history of TheSwaggieUnicorn, what’d ya think? Let me know and have a great day ahead.

Act Cool

Forever21's Tanktop ~ Vintage Esprit's Pants ~ Vintage Chanel's Bag ~ New Look's Sandals

Aye Mates!
What would you do if you see your crush coming your way? Act cool but ended doing the weirdest thing ever? Pretend like you didn’t know he or she exists? Pretending to be busy? Stares? Called him or her out like as if you know them well? Friendly smile? What will you do?

As in my case, I tried to act cool as if I didn’t know he’s coming but I ended up being so weird and my face blushed up till I think it really shows on my face. I tried my best not to look at him but always ended up staring because hey you can’t help it when you see your crush, am I rite? My friend told me that it’s okay for girls to make the first move. Call me old-fashion but I really appreciate it when guy make the first move it just really shows how he’s a total gentleman. I don’t get why guy said “girls play-so-hard-to-get” when in reality guys do play-hard-to-get as well. It’s confusing lol. Sometimes I wouldn’t mind introducing myself to the guy I have a crush on first but I just hate the thought of that guy being so pretentious or “geer” or thought that “oh she must like me so much that she makes the first move” or “I must be cool enough that she like me”, like HELLO! WHY? If a guy had a thought like that it really gives me a very bad impression and I will ended up disgusted by it. But what do you think guys?

Yes I currently have a crush one someone that know I exists because my kind of “act cool” (you know what I mean). I’m afraid he sees me as this one weird girl but I don’t know what to do. I can only see him from afar and in secret because somehow I don’t want him to notice my weird existence. Share your stories or experience with your crush and let me know what will you do if you’re in my position. Thanks doe! :)

Kill 'Em with Kindness

Zara's Dress ~ Vans' Oldskool Shoes ~ Clutchthecluch's Clutch ~ PeonyJewel.ID's Earrings

Ayee Mates!

Yesterday I witness a simple act of kindness that really touches my heart. Here goes the story.

I rode gojek in the morning and during the red light, a man tap my gojek driver and said “please tell that lady at the front that her money is popping out from the pocket and it’s dangerous.” So my go
jek driver told her about it and that lady said thank you. I don’t know why, call me weird, but that simple act of kindness really warms my heart. Like I thought to myself “not all people are bad I guess.”

We live in a world full of hatred and crimes everywhere. I always thought there is no more love and peace left in this world, people are getting mean and selfish day by day. But turns out there’s still hope, if people or us wants to be a change, we can! Stop and look at your surroundings, pay attention maybe there’s someone that need helps with carrying their stuff or crossing the road or doing something. Help them. Maybe your friends or colleagues need help with their homework or projects. Help them. As long as one person has the intention to be nice or kind to others I believe it will infect others as well. Maybe the people you help will help their friends or others and so on. We could build a chain of kindness to others. How cool is that? Always train your mind to see the good in everything. With just ordinary acts of kindness and bravery we could encourage one person to stand up for another. Kindness is contagious.

Perfectly Imperfect

*ps. groceries shopping gone wrong lol

“We were born to be real not perfect.”

*A message from Me to all of you guys and girls, ladies and gents, all mankind.

All of us have that at least one thing that we wish we could change from ourselves. For me I wish I was born with bigger eyes and skinnier body. Nowadays society through all kind of medias are picturizing their own kinds of perfect. Mostly they’re all the same, skinny bodies, long hair, built posture and much more, they’re like coming from the same factory or production house. Indirectly these pictures play with our mind and planting up a mindset that those are the standards of beauty. We begin to judge ourselves harder, going through a strict diet, plastic surgery and much more to be that kind of beauty.

As I’m planning on today post I came across one quote on weheartit, we were born to be real not perfect. God made us according to His image, He made us carefully and wonderfully made. We’re perfect in His eyes no matter what. Your or our values doesn’t decrease just because someone’s inability to see our worth. You’re beautiful just the way you are and at least you’re not faking up stuffs, you’re real human being that’s born this way. You don’t need cakey makeup to be beautiful. You don’t need to starve yourself to be beautiful. You don’t need to do things that you’re not comfortable to please others or be their kind of beauty. You are you.

Now what you need to is to stop looking at others and start to look at yourself. Look in the mirror and what do you see? I see a strong human being that’s perfect just the way they are. How you see yourself matter more than how others see you. Learn how to love yourself first before you can love others. Unfollow those accounts that once made you feel so small and bad if it’s necessary. Refuse to let the world corrupts you and just be your own kind of beautiful. Just remember when someone called you ugly, I said you’re perfect!
