BEST OF 2012

It's hard to believe that another year is just beginning. Welcome back to what is likely to be an extremely busy 2012. This year has the potential to be a very challenging and fruitful year for me and I’m personally very proud of what "Anything About Trishie", Trishie Couture, "Your Fashion Architect" and I myself have achieved over the last 12 months, (11 months of blogging to be exact).

It's been so challenging to me because first of all, I started blogging. And tru this, I earned friends and even haters-that made my life even extra special slash challenging. I learned that I am an inspiration to some people, I even influenced 5 people to make a blog. And you don't know how much happiness that it gave me. At the same time, I also heard and saw a lot of criticisms and hate comments on my blog. Which made me more likely to blog and make them realize that they are all wrong and they can never bring me down just because of their filthy-hate-insecure-anonymous comments. hihi. 

Because of blogging, I become one of those lucky and blessed girl who are receiving free clothes! Who doesn't like that? I also started to attend random events where I also found a lot of friends from the fashion and blogging world :)
My 2012 Runway Ramp :) 
Some random agent asked me to model for SM Summer Super Models.
It is a scripted event though. lol. I have to pretend that I really joined the contest and I just won. hihi. And that was the first time I met ate Lau and ate Cams :) They both became my personal stylists that day :) Not to mention that we had a 5,000 worth of shopping spree... with them! hihi.

Blogging  has pretty much gotten my life better. With having now reached a regular rank 30+ on and Beauty Category (rank 9 as my highest rank)-  I know it is not about ranking and such. I am just happy that because of that ranking, it makes me really happy to think people can relate to me and enjoy what I do and write about. I learned how much I am blessed and how much you guys support my blog :) I wish I could blog more, but everyone is so understanding about my busy schedule right? And I just want to say a huge thankyou. It doesn't even matter to me about how many of you read it, whether it's 10 or 1000, I'm just grateful that you guys take the time to read it and I'm sorry I can't always come and check out everyones blogs. Alot of the time I do, but I just don't comment, and I think I should do that more in 2013. And thankyou especially to all my regular readers, I know some of you and I just want to say thankyou so much guys. You guys aren't just "readers" or "viewers", you're my blogger friends too, and to all the new friends I've made over chatting on twitter and such.. Just thankyou so so much. I hope I can keep it going smoothly in 2013! 

Moving on what made my 2012 the most fruitful and challenging is that...

Second, I continued my Fashion Design lessons that I started way back 2009. But guess what? I studied it together with my Architectural Course on a quarter sem school-Mapua. 
And I survived! Hooray! 2 birds in one stone huh? 

Third, 2012 is the year where I started to design gowns for clients! I even made an entourage gowns for a wedding! Weee. So it means that...

Fourth, it is the first year where I started to earn money for my self. Using my very own business- Trishie Couture. It is self fulfilling to buy your own stuff using your own money that you gave a hard work to. Besides that, I also earn money tru my own part time work which is as a...

Fifth, contributor writer on a magazine (DDG Magazine) which they pay an amount per word. 

Sixth, It is my first time to be featured on a magazine. But it is not just an ordinary magazine, It is CANDY MAGAZINE! :) Not to mention that I am also featured on DDG Magazines :)
Seventh, I achieve one of my dream, or should I say, every girls dream! A walk-in-closet! :) Plus a dream bedroom, and my very own house which I always beautify :) 

 2nd to the Last, I achieved one of my biggest dreams- I launched my very first clothing/couture line "Trishie Couture" Not just that I launched it, Trishie Couture has been a sponsor of several events already. It also even got featured on TV!

And last but not the least, I achieved another one of my biggest dreams -To have a charity/foundation in the future when I get rich. Who knew that this dream of mine approached me so fast? :) I just realized that that dream will not only be possible if you are rich. I am not rich, but I am so happy to help. And this year, I made my own charity. A Trishie Couture Charity :)

After all these roster of achievements, There are also things that gave so much challenge in my life.
First and foremost is the "Habagat Tragedy".  This will never be forgotten.

We gave shelter to 7 Families. This picture was in the vacant room of  the 3rd storey of our house. They got stranded just like us. :(

Second, is a broken friendship. I can't forget the words that she said to me "Hindi nga tayo close eh". How can she probably said that after I lend her clothes and let her sleep in my home. After I introduced her to my tattoo artist and made her her very first tatt. And after I brought her to a party and introduced her to my friends saying "Meet __, my friend". Only to found out that she is saying rude things about me, behind my back. Yes Im angry about her filthy behavior. And I just want to clear my hatred thoughts before this year ends. I will never say sorry. But if you can, I just want you to know that I can still forgive you. I still CONSIDERED you as my friend, after all  :)

See? Imagine that all of those things happened in just one year! I even didn't mention the events that I've been to, the outings that I had with my friends and relatives, and so on and so forth.  While there are some big and little things that bothered me  but never become a hindrance to my successes. And all of them wouldn't be possible without my very supportive friends, relatives, classmates and readers/viewers. Those are the people who shared their knowledge to me. The people who is there once in my life, the people who left me and the people who is always there for me. The people I inspire and whom I inspire. The people who loved me and still loving me. Those things are never possible without my ever loving mother who never stop understanding me and supporting me. My haters and the people who stoop on me, degraded me, doubted me and judged me. They are the one who made me strong and made me the kind of girl  who wont let anyone's discouragement and staring judging eyes to stop me from doing what I want and what will make me more successful. And I wanna THANKS TO EVERYONE OF YOU! :)

Have a wonderful new year dollies, KEEP SAFE!
HELLO 2013 :)
