Beyond #grateful

When I was a little girl or during my teen years, all I could dream about was being featured in maga...

When I was a little girl or during my teen years, all I could dream about was being featured in magazines. I admired all the pretty girls that got the chance to grace the covers or even the pages. I was a bit sad when that didn't happen for me at age 13 and onwards but I still didn't give up, of course! Persistent. =P I still hoped and prayed that one day that it would come true. In God's time and if he really wanted that for me. If not, I understand. God always has bigger plans and indeed he does!

With a few years worth of patience, at the age of 22, I achieved more than I can dream about and it wouldn't have been possible without God's grace, the great people, family and blog friends I am surrounded with. Thank you!:)

My first ever magazine feature has finally come out. This was shot sometime August, I think and I wanna thank my very talented friend, Elisa Aquino for picking me as one of the girls for her first Style Stalker assignment. I didn't see much of the photos because it was all a blur to me during that time and it felt surreal but when it came out and I saw it, I could only feel happiness. Not only because of the feature but how Elisa is becoming more and more greater at what she does. More power to you, Love! You deserve all the good things coming your way! Thank you again, Elisa and Meg Magazine!

The theme was leggings or tights. :) Oh and please grab a copy of Meg Magazine's November issue tee-hee!!^_^

Next up is our Philippine Star Feature from the FreewayxManansala event. I was sleeping when Ana, Keigh and Angel were tweeting about this so when I got up I didn't exactly get what they were talking about. But after a few questions I understood. What is lost? =P

This is my second time to be featured at Freeway's event and I still got giddy when I found out about it. :) I can't help it. I think I'll forever be giddy and excited when it comes to these things. Always feels like the first time!:) Thank you, Hannah Reyes for the beautiful photo you picked, Freeway for having us, Phil Star for the feature and Kim for the heads up!

I find it awesome how everyone in our blogging circle had solo shots, yet me, Keigh and Angel had a TRIO shot. Not complaining, I love it!:)

Lastly, the most amazing of them all and if I dreamed about a magazine feature as a kid, this one is something I NEVER imagined would happen to a simple girl like me. I swear...

I went to Edsa Paragon today just to see the L.E.D. billboard in person and up to now it feels like a dream. I'm not kidding. I cannot put into words how amazing this is. Seeing my fellow bloggers on the L.E.D. and finally mine was just wow. :) All I can really say is, Thank you so much Globe for getting us to be part of their Tattoo campaign and to Coy and Niche for trusting us with this project. :)

Like what my title says, I am BEYOND grateful for all these blessings and opportunities coming my way. I am humbled by all this. Thank you Thank you. :)

  19. OMG!! Congratulations Ava! :) Like you, it's my dream to be featured in any magazine or even just a simple blog will do. Model and do the catwalk. I am now 19 and I'm still hoping that sometime in the future I'll get those dreams and achieve it. I really feel the happiness and I got more inspired by your story. Hoping that next time, it's my story to be told. ♥ Congrats again! ♥ ☺
