Welcome to the blog, loves!
If you are here, I’m guessing you need some spark in your life – either in the matters of fashion, travel, and/or lifestyle. Obviously, those are the three main niches that I talk about on this blog. In some rather special (and rare) occasions though, I may not be able to control myself in deviating from them. PSA: I am a very random person who likes to talk about everything that inspires me and makes my heart beat a little too fast.
Yours Truly, Myrra is established in the summer of 2015 during which I was working in the company of my uncle and didn’t know what to do in my free time. It started as a personal blog where I published my writings – most of which are products of my love for words combined with a
huge little crush on he-who-must-not-be-named. Through the months of blogging, however, I realized that I am also passionate about fashion and that I have a serious case of wanderlust. Combined with my determination to make my dreams happen and my journey to self-love and living the #girlboss life, I am writing this letter (in the form of a blog) to you, my readers, as I aim to help and inspire young girls (and even, adult women and men) to look and feel their best, see the world beyond their horizons, and strive to reach for their dreams.
To sum up, this blog is for you if:
- you want to express yourself through your style but certain limits (such as height) are hindering you to do so,
- you love or dream of traveling the world (high-five, co-wanderlust!) in a budget and in style,
- you want to be more confident with who you are (spoiler alert: you are amazing), and/or
- you want to be living the #girlboss life someday (this, I’m still not an expert of, but I’m hoping we can learn from each other and improve our lives together, yes?).
I am Myrrazen Kate Consulta aka Myrra and I am the
sender author of this letter blog. I am a 19-year-old girl from Camarines Sur, Philippines (now residing in Manila with my Mom) who’s passionate about writing, reading, learning, and traveling. I am currently taking up Bachelor of Science in Development Communication at the University of the Philippines in which the main goal is to negate the entropy of communities by bridging their gaps on communication and to empower them to become the individuals they are at their utmost potential. In line with this, I am also an advocate for children’s rights and quality education for all. I deeply believe that a life lived for others is a life well-lived.
Right now, I am still continually searching for myself and who I want to be as I get lost in my books, adventures, words, and life. But I am utterly sure that a part of me wants to be a writer in the near future. My articles have also been published on several platforms such as Candy Magazine and Thought Catalog. But most of the time, honestly, you could just see me on my bed sleeping, eating, writing, or binge-watching movies/series/ted talks.
So… why am I into fashion?
I most definitely am not a professional fashion designer or stylist but I can tell you how in love I am with fashion. During my childhood years, my Mom would randomly mix and match outfits for me (which honestly made me look like a clown but it turns out, it was cool back then! lol) and until now, she is still my biggest style influence. Through my early teenage years, however, I struggled with being bullied as I am short for my age (FYI, I am 4’11/5’0 in some weird days). Fast forward to my college years where we were encouraged to express ourselves in any way, I knew that was my chance to be who I really am and dress the way I want – no matter what my size is and what other people say. “What’s your style then?”, you may ask. Well, I am into classic and minimalist style (I’m not really into trends that much) and if you feel like we’re the same – either in style or in being petite – then let’s have fun in this little blog of mine!
What made me want to travel?
I haven’t went outside my country before but I’ve always felt like there’s so much more to see in the world and so much more that life has to offer. Coming from a broken family, I guess I grew up to be the type of person who never settles. I had two homes but I mostly stayed with my Mom and I was used to leaving and eventually, coming back. Also, an insatiable wanderlust must be running in my blood. Both my Mom and Dad love to travel, see new things, and meet different people.
So when I was given the opportunity to be an exchange student in Trento, Italy in 2017, it was my first time to be away from my family for so long (6 months). I was on the other side of the world but honestly, I was never scared. I knew in my heart that I have God in my back and come to think of it, I was living my dream – traveling and seeing the world. So that’s when I grabbed the chance to travel around Europe. By the end of 2017, I had traveled to 21 cities in 10 countries – excluding the Philippines – and I can never be more thankful for all those blessings. I knew that traveling and making memories made me felt so alive so from that time, I am hooked.
Throughout my exchange program where I’ve traveled around Europe, my previous years of wandering around my own country, and the future travels that I am looking forward to do, I have learned and will learn a lot of things – most of them the hard way – as a student traveler. I can assure you that this blog will be my platform in reaching out to you, fellow co-wanderlusts, and help you in making your travels more fun, meaningful, and memorable.
