Fierce,

Writing improves my thinking. I love to write and showcase my work through visuals and with words that will strengthen my vision that is why I still keep on writing and making blog posts with my experiences and journey as The Fierce Walker. But business writing is very different from what you learned in school. Clarity matters above everything else, and when you’re pressed for time, you have to write fast. I think it’s far more important to write than most people realise.

Writing doesn’t just communicate ideas; it generates them.

If you’re bad at writing and don’t like to do it, you’ll miss out on most of the ideas writing would have generated. Here is my general rule when writing: Write about stuff you like only.

I am always fascinated with fashion and the heritage behind every brand. I adore the creative vision of each designer and how they envision a woman who is wearing their design. Plus I always write to express my ideas and vision and not to impress anyone else or to please them.

I would like to share with you all some tips that will help you improve your online writing.

1. Remove every unnecessary word
2. Focus on clarity, not cleverness
3. If a sentence bores your reader, delete it
4. Make your reader smarter
5. Treat every word like it’s on trial for its life
6. Write like you’re talking to a friend at a bar
7. Eliminate anything that adds confusion.
8. Add colorful details.
9. Remove unnecessary words.
10. Invoke Curiosity
11. Make an Emotional Touch
12. Beautiful design is the cherry on top. Always focus on your making your sentence Clear.
13. Use analogies when possible
14. When you write online, you get compound interest in your ideas.
15. Great ideas take time. Keep on writing!

Fierce,

I’m consumed by wanderlust. I want to explore the world and everything it has to offer. I want to be exposed to cultures that are different than my own. I want to meet people that change me. I’m in love with the idea of new chapters and fresh starts.


I’m in love with coffee shops in Fabrika Tbilisi. Sipping my coffee while I immerse myself in a new book that changes the way I view life. Pausing to watch the raindrops slide down the window. Realizing that this is where I was always meant to be.

I’m in love with small restaurants in Tbilisi, Georgia while enjoying my mulled wine. Learning about the simplicity of life. Making a new life for myself.

Handbag: Tessa Collection

I’m in love with any place that makes me feel alive. I’m in love with the idea that I have so much left to experience.

Don’t be afraid to fall inlove over and over again on anything around you, you will appreciate more what life has to offer. You will appreciate more your life and your inner purpose as a person.

Me and My Fierce Mama

Fierce,

Let me share with you a throwback trip that I did last year with Mum in Gudauri, Georgia to celebrate her birthday. So last February 2019 we went to Tbilisi, Georgia for the first time to explore the Georgian way.

Tbilisi is the capital of the country of Georgia. Its cobblestoned old town reflects a long, complicated history, with periods under Persian and Russian rule. Its diverse architecture encompasses Eastern Orthodox churches, ornate art nouveau buildings and Soviet Modernist structures.

This is my first trip with my mum outside Dubai, UAE and for me, this is something memorable. My mum loves snow since we were from the Philippines and it is a tropical country.

We don’t have snow (unfortunately mostly coconuts…) but fast forward, I surprised her a trip to one of the Ski resorts in Gudauri, Georgia where we enjoyed taking pictures at the snow but we have a fashion emergency. We forgot our snow boots that’s why even though we are enjoying so much the scenery. We tend to cut the trip off short because our feet couldn’t move. After all, it’s negative 7 degrees during that time in Gudauri. But to see the genuine happiness of my mum is what important the most to me. Her happiness is my happiness too.

Next time that I will visit a Ski Resort, I will make sure that I have the proper gear, outfit, and boots to slay with. For now, I cannot share with you anything fashion-related only the memories we had at Gudauri, Georgia.

It was an amazing trip and a very fast journey. We hired a personal driver at the Rooms hotel and they managed everything perfectly to us. I will go back to the place and next time I will slay it harder.

Stay Fierce in Snow!

Fierce,

2020 is proving to be a great year for both the mainstream media and the fashion industry. Shows including PoseAJ and the Queen, Next In FashionThe Barking MurdersAnnihilation, and Fleabag, all feature ensembles of leading actors that bring diversity and Inclusivity to the big screen.

At a time when our society has undergone a magnifying glass effect on racial injustice, an underlying issue that has perhaps never been solved –only politely tucked away, it is comforting to find a burgeoning amount of positivity and inclusion in an arena notorious for bringing all likes of people together.

 

As a biracial person, growing up it was hard to find my mirrored reflection or family dynamic in the roles of the stars that graced the silver screen and mainstream media. Pursuing a likeliness to people that I felt connected to was something I met with a shy disappointment, a feeling that I find many other ethnicities and creatives like me have shared.

On the rise, portrayals of people of color and LGBTQ+ community that go beyond the sometimes overwhelmingly uncomfortable and continual roles as slaves, prostitutes or drug dealers or awkward immigrants provide a sense of hope and more importantly the inspiration to generations. Movies, shows, and series where we can be funny, or kings and queens, scientists, hackers, and even otherworldly whimsical beings all help build a sense of self-worth and imagination. 

Pictures can act as a love letter to the community telling you that yes, you are loved, you can be anything, and you are important no matter who you are or what you are.

We live in a time where our society is becoming more vocal about concerns in the realm of intolerance. 

It is encouraging to find directors, models, bookers, influencers, bloggers, vloggers, creatives, PR’s, producers, and actors that are open to sharing and showing us to celebrate how different we may come in shape, and yet are found to be completely connected. It is by education, and visuals, and telling each other our experiences, in which we come together. 

Fierce,

Let me share with you something…
Last month I went on a secret trip to Paris for 3 days to attend a very special event and meeting with 2 big agencies. It is something that I can’t wait to share with all of you. 2020 is such a good start for me to be honest because it gives me hope to push harder, level up my game and evolve my whole packaging as a content creator. Paris is special to me because it feels like my battleground in fashion, it helps me to try new looks that I haven’t try before and meet new people in the industry with the same way of thinking as me on a creative side.

I am wearing a new favourite brand from Copenhagen, Denmark it’s Baum Und Pferdgarten, I love this brand because they know exactly what quality and design really mean with their products.

Wearing: Maaike Top and Nyo Pants

As I slay the streets of Paris, my whole look blends really well on the whole aesthetic vibe of the hotel. I got a lot of good feedbacks with this combo look as I paired with my oversized Georgian brand based in Tbilisi, Georgia.

I believe in building a wardrobe that is a good mix of luxury and streetwear brands. As much as I love to indulge in the seasonal trends, my regular purchases lean towards investment pieces with casual wear thrown into the mix.

Bag: Bottega Veneta

This February 2020, I will unveil the secret with my upcoming project for a brand that is close to my heart. Stay tuned for more slaying projects. Stay Fierce!

 

Fierce,

It’s January and it is the perfect month to start your 2020 with a bang. The best way to do it? Wear something sparkly to be at your most extra kind of look. For me, I always love wearing something bold and interesting outfits for my daily meetings and errands.

Location: Palazzo Versace Dubai

I want to keep my brand DNA strong and yet tastefully appealing. How to do it? When you pair a printed top wear something neutral and plain for your bottom. A good shoe will complement the look and a chic handbag to complete the whole look. When you wear a sequins top and bottom always make sure that your hair and make-up are simple and classy. Make you look on point by layering it carefully with the right accessory. For this look, I chose something edgy to make the editorial look strong and fierce.

I am wearing & Other Stories and what I love about the brand is that they always showcase curated pieces that are good for someone who is on a budget and yet wants to wear something special.

Fierce,

Have you experienced feeling a little down and you feel disconnected from everyone around you? Well, let me tell you something that I’ve been experiencing these past weeks. First of all, it’s not as bad as you think it is. It’s healthy.

When the people around you don’t understand you anymore, be alone. Listen to your voice away from their noise. Remember who you were before they imposed their lifestyles, opinions, and thoughts on you. Remember who you were before you met them or integrated yourself with them. Recharge your mind and your heart away from their energies. This is the time to be selfish. This is the time to ask for space. This is the time to find yourself again before you lose yourself in the crowd. Don’t wait until you no longer recognize who you are.

You need to be self-aware of the things around you. It will help you to become stronger and flourish yourself to be the person you always wanted to be. 

You’re starting to wonder if maybe you haven’t been making the wrong decisions but making the right ones in the wrong place. Saying the right things to the wrong people. Doing the right things for people who don’t appreciate them. Trying to live a certain way in a place that doesn’t support the kind of life you want. You need to go to a place where you feel safe and proud to live. Along the way, you will find all the reasons behind your struggles and pain. It will be the boldest and beautiful decision you will ever make in your life. Find yourself Fierce!

Fierce,
I’ve been holding this news for the past 6 months and I guess it’s time for me to share with you all my upcoming plans. 2019 was a very tough year for most of us and for me personally, I am grateful. I’ve traveled 10 times and I’ve experienced the worst things during 2019 but beyond that, I am happy for the person I am becoming. I am starting a new journey! Yes, you are right I am going to a new place and the beauty in starting over is that you get to let go of who you were in the past. You let go of what was holding you back and you let go of all the things that were weighing you down when you thought you were stuck – either in the wrong place or with the wrong person.

Why I am starting a new journey?

I want to evolve myself as a woman with substance. I want to grow as a person and find what truly makes me happy. At my age right now, I want to explore new things that I will never experience if I will stay where I am right now. — The beauty in starting over is that you get to choose.

You get to choose who you want to be this time without anyone telling you who you should be and how you should do it. You’re given a new chance to live life differently. You’re given a new lens to see life in a different color and you’re given another chance to redeem yourself, to fix yourself and get one step closer to who you always wanted to be.

When you decide to take a different road, when you do something that scares you and when you let go of something or someone that was holding you back – no matter how much it hurts, no matter how much you care about them, sometimes they pull you back when you were meant to fly and sometimes they silence your voice when you were meant to roar.
