Highlights of my 2016 - myrrazenkate

2016 was definitely a very challenging year – full of high’s and low’s, laughs and tears, smiles and frowns. But still, I am thankful for every moment that I’ve had this year. Thank you to everyone who made it so much better (and bearable). Here are some of the most special memories this year has offered me.

The moment I first started to pose for a blog post (seriously, like a style blogger, for real 😂)

The moment I had snacks and dinner with my favorite Kuya’s from UP Diliman (and yes, the Nook Cafe!)

The moment I had drinks with my highschool friends who are UPLB students as well (and it was lit!)

This wasn’t a ‘bahay kubo’ by the way. I swear, it was a bar just outside of our campus. Lol!

The moment I also posed like a legit blogger (yes, I am proud of these moments. Lol!)

Lol, I just realized this part was so Game of Thrones-ish because I called it “the north” though this was just the northern Philippines. Don’t be fooled! 😅

And celebrated my 18th birthday there with the most special person in my life, my Mom!
