My Major Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger Influences of 2013

by - Monday, December 30, 2013

2013 indeed is a great year for me when it comes to the blogging scene. I was introduced to a different world that only to find out will become one of my passions as time passes by. 

As 2013 ends, I'd like to give thanks to these awesome people who made it to my list as "My Major Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger Influences of 2013"!

Disclaimer: This list is not in a particular order! 😊

1. Krissy Cruz

She was one of the first blogs that I've been anticipating since June 2013. I love the thought that she's a book geek but very fashionable as well. I can remember that it was our love for The Hunger Games brought us together. I actually got to finally meet her at Shangri-La during the special screening of Catching Fire.

2. Ana Gonzales

Hands down to this lady because she pursued her love for fashion even though she's a journalism graduate in UST. She taught me a lot especially on how to maximize my blog and how to build a strong friendship from it. Can I just say that she's very cool as a person, too! I thought it'll be awkward meeting her for the first time at Tony and Jackey, but hell no! We shared lots of stories during and after our salon date. Big sis talaga! 😍

From being the Fashionista Commuter to the Blogkadas, she taught me lots of things that I still bring to this day. Have fun in the US, Ana! :)

3. David Guison

Oh my! I wasn't expecting this renowned guy during our seminar in Baguio. Well, we have a loving chairperson that's why DG was able to do a talk during one of our seminars there. During his period, it felt like he was a teacher showing us how to do blogging 101 the right way.

I thought I already know a lot about blogging but David tackled a lot more about the subject. One thing that I learned from him is to find the category that you want to blog about. According to him, "Jack of all trade doesn't work in a blog because it's important to create an image for your blog."

Funny how after this encounter with David, I dreamed about him few times. I guess he just made a huge impact on me. 😍

4. Sarah Tirona

Everytime I get to see her at different events, she never fails to grab my attention! What I love about her blog is that she keeps it cool and simple so that anyone can enjoy reading her posts. Aside from this, I anticipate her beauty posts because through her, I got acquainted with beauty products that I don't know I needed.

5. Patricia Prieto

Ever since I saw her style in BU4, I couldn't help but look forward to more of her OOTD in her blog. It's just my kind of style, a mix of preppy and edgy. Also, I so love the layout of her blog because it really looks like a magazine with her as the daily cover girl.

Another thing that I love about her blog is that she covers her music festival experience in abroad (like the Governor's Ball). As a music enthusiast, I felt like I've been to the festivals abroad for free because of the enthusiasm in her post!

6. Camille Co

Of course, Camille would be on this list! When I look for girly pegs, I usually search for outfit mix and match on her blog. She is such an inspiration because apart from being a fashion blogger, she also creates gowns. Among all her designs, the dress she wore during her graduation made a huge impact on me. It's like, "I wanna design my own clothes for my graduation" or "I hope Camille can design me one" lol. :)))

7. Laureen Uy

I was so stoked when I saw her set of accessories at the Goody Event in MOA Atrium. It was like a piece of heaven. Like a dream come true.

The moment I saw her, I already felt like I saw myself in her. She wears simple clothing pieces with a great ensemble of accessories. If I have troubles with how to pair up different kinds of accessories, I just check out her blog.

One great thing about Break My Style is that it also has a Mobile app. Sadly, it is not yet available in the Google Play Store. I hope it becomes available soon. :)) 

8. Mikki Galang

The first thing that comes to my mind when I see the word Mikki Galang - HAIR AND MAKEUP! :) I just love how adventurous she is when it comes to makeups. Through her, I also get acquainted with makeup brands that suit my taste. I hope I can attend one of her makeup workshops one of this days to learn more about makeup.

9. Paul Chuapoco

Hands down to this guy for being nominated on the recently concluded Visual Style Awards 2013. 

Because I am currently studying Advertising and Public Relations, I always look forward to the different events that he's into. Like when I see his blog posts, all I can think of is that PR is a fun industry to be in. :)

10. Arnie Villanueva (aka Mommy Arnie!)


And she's the reason why The Lifestyle Wanderer was born. It was during her birthday celebration at Tea 101 when I first met her. (The Wintermelon Tea there is really awesome by the way!)

It was kinda awkward at first because I am new to blogging when I first met her. FYI, prior to her celebration, I am already fond of reading her blog posts. 😊

If there's one thing that she said that really made a mark on me, it would probably be the topic about how perks just come as a bonus in blogging. According to her, "write about your interests in life".

By the way, let's congratulate mommah Arnie because of her new baby - The Style Code PH. The pieces on her first collection looks amazing! 😍😍😍

PS. I just wanna say a million thanks to every blogger that I've had a chat with this 2013. All of you indeed inspire me to become a better blogger every day! You guys taught me different aspects of blogging that I should definitely bear in mind. :)

That's it for 2013 friends! I hope it'll be a great year ahead to all of us! My wish for 2014? For the Philippines, in general, to retain our resiliency amongst all the challenges that will come.

It has been a fruitful 2013. Advance Happy New Year Blogosphere! :)
