What Miss Universe 2015, Pia Wurtzbach, Taught Me

After more than four decades of waiting, the Philippines has come to reach its most coveted victory in the Universe. It’s been a week already since Pia Wurtzbach was crowned as the Miss Universe 2015 yet, most of us are still not over with it.

It took her three attempts to bring home the crown that every beauty queen is aspiring for. From her first try to join the Binibining Pilipinas in 2013, she ended up as the first runner up while on her second try in 2014, she went home with nothing. But this year, Pia proved that third time’s a charm because she bagged the title Binibining Pilipinas-Universe. Meaning, she will represent the country in the most prestigious beauty pageant in the universe.

Knowing her story, I realized something. Successful people are the ones who know what they want and do something about it. For Pia, she wanted the crown so bad that it didn’t stop her to chase her ultimate dream. Look at where she is now, the elusive crown is on her already. Because of her good example, she has inspired many people. And I have to admit that, I am, too. With her journey to victory, she taught me some things:

1. Never settle for something good. Go for the better. The best, rather. I’ve always believed in this and keep on telling to the people who think that I dream too big: Mangangarap ka na lang din naman, bakit hindi mo pa taasan? I don’t see the point of success if you’re out there with the “good” when you know you can have better.
2. It’s okay to fail sometimes. And I mean it. Everybody fails, though some are afraid to admit it. Failure is inevitable and there’s nothing you can do to change that except to embrace it. Some people lose hope and become unmotivated when failure blocks them. But guess what, the more you fail, the stronger you get. Don’t fret if you’ve failed many times already because it just makes success that much sweeter. To succeed after multiple failure is one of the best feelings in the world. You’ll feel a great sense of satisfaction because you know that everything you went through was all worth it.
3. Don’t ever stop, because the moment you stop trying, that’s the moment you failed. There’s nothing wrong with trying and trying and trying all over again. Your road to success will not be easy as one, two, three and it will never be. So what if they tell you that you’re trying hard? Let them and be it. Try hard because you want it so bad. At the end of the day, everything you’ve worked for will pay off.
4. Be confidently beautiful with a heart. Show the world what you can do. Be proud but not arrogant. Just like Pia, being confidently beautiful with a heart will win you so many things and your dream is part of it.

Human Hair Wigs for Women

Styling our hair gives us lots of hassle more than we think. It takes so much time and effort for us to fix our hair every morning before going to school or work especially, us girls. We have different preferences of hair style each day, right? Sometimes we want braids, sometimes we curl. Or most of the time, we just want flat straight hair. Sounds a little stressful, eh? And we have no choice but repeat the same routine over and over again because, really, who wants to have a bad hair day?

Since we use too much chemical products, flat or curling iron, tendency is, our hair gets damage! But how can we keep up our dream hair look everyday?

Nowadays, most women prefer using wigs.

Before, wigs were used for special occasions only but now, some people use it for their everyday look. But isn’t it a little weird to wear a wig while walking down the street?

Fashion Dilemma: “I don’t know what to wear today”

Have you ever experienced that time when you just don’t know what to wear? As you look at the pile of your clothes at your closet, you just can’t decide what to pick.

 

Admit it, most of the time you’re having a hard time deciding on what to wear for the day. Searching your closet and finding old pieces that you’ve worn several times already. You’re saying “I have nothing to wear” though there’s a lot of clothes waiting for you to pick them. You wouldn’t want your friend to notice that you keep on repeating clothes, right?—maybe to some people, this is an issue.

 

One of the factors of the “what to wear” issue is the evolution of fashion style. As the fashion industry keeps on growing, people’s perception on their personal style keeps on evolving too. Through the years, only artists and models inspired consumers to be fashionable. But now, we know that social media sites are growing, there are also “fashion bloggers”—featuring online what they are wearing—that influence many readers. Their interest in fashion paved way for online sellers to venture in a clothing business thinking that it’s their opportunity to earn easily because it’s the people’s common interest today.

 

To make it easier for you to choose what you want to wear for the day, there are sites that can help you. Polyvore.com is one of the sites that feature clothing brands known worldwide where you can see their products. At polyvore.com, there are many looks and styles that can inspire you. One edge of the site is that you could create your outfit online in less than a minute! Here are some examples of the outfit I’ve created:
