I am a Filipina (Kagay-anon) from the beautiful Philippine Islands. Cagayan de Oro is my hometown, but I currently live in the United States particularly in Austin, Texas.
A Sensible LifeSTYLE is a platform on which I show my passion for fashion (looking fab without hurting your pocket), a love for music, an interest in photography, my travels and life's in-betweens.
I graduated from Mindanao University of Science and Technology with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education a major/emphasis in Special education. Why didn’t I pursue a degree within fashion or music? When I decided where to go to college, my parents could not afford to send me to an art or business school. Becoming a teacher was my second choice, but it became a great foundation for my artistic passion. For instance, being a teacher has taught me patience to deal with people from different backgrounds. It has also improved my organization skills, writing skills, speaking skills and my creativity. You don’t stop doing what you love just because you don’t have specific things that you desire. You use all the means given to you at the moment to go on, learn, improve, and express yourself in the ways you can.
Why A Sensible LifeSTYLE?
It took me many attempts to decide what this blog should be about, but I then found the perfect name with the help of my supportive husband. I believe in empowering women who are like me. Women should not allow the world to dictate what they should have and not have. Let us face the fact that many women around the world cannot afford to buy luxurious clothes and accessories all the time or not at all. I am one of them. I was not born into a wealthy family. I am not earning that kind of money. I am not saying it is not good to buy luxurious brands. They are ALL GREAT! In fact, I own a couple myself, and I wish to have some more. If you have the money by all means, invest in those luxurious brands or you can even save up for them. They are worth saving for! But if you are like me who desires to be stylish without hurting her pocket, this blog is dedicated for you. There are still inexpensive products out there that are worth having. Remember, you can still look fab with or without the “it” brands.
Let us not be ashamed of buying what we can only afford. You worked hard for that, and it’s something you should be proud of.
A woman’s beauty is her soul, and from there it will naturally branch out into every part of her being.
Salamat sa pag bisita! Balik-balik.
