Joyous Journeys: Mission District, San Francisco

August 7, 2015

Way back at the beginning of my summer vacation, I was able to rejoin my childhood friends and freely explore San Francisco. Specifically the Mission District. We stumbled upon Clarion Alley and had ourselves a mini photoshoot along the beautiful and powerful visual messages. Art is not merely pretty. It is a way to visually share our emotions, voice, soul. The artists who contributed to this local public art gallery speak out on local current events that are affecting citizens in that area. Remember to not just admire the art, but engage and spread the message. Be critical. Be aware. Be a spark for change. 

Read on for more peeks at the beautiful and engaging artwork.

Third Time's the Charm

Darn, I missed my blog's birthday by ONE day. 


As of September 14, 2015, Unconventional Bliss is officially 3 years old. That's right. T-H-R-E-E. 3. Tatlo (3 in Tagalog)

It's surreal how this blog has grown and evolved from my first blog post when I thought this would be a piece of cake, but in fact, I had no idea what I was doing. However, within those three years, I realized this is not to please anyone in particular. This has grown into a very personal project for me, to share with others who may be interested in my own unconventional interests. This has allowed me to learn a little more about myself in terms of my style, my writing voice, and my passions. It also has given me a unique sort of confidence I never would have gained from public speaking classes. I also established incredible connections and gained new friends by being a part of this fashion blogging community. I've had the most growth and change for my blog and myself this past year. As I'm entering a momentous period in my school career, I have a notion that major growth will result. Whether that pertains to my blog, my job, or myself, we all will have to wait and see. Until next year.

Joyous Journeys: Southern California

Finally back to blogging, and I'm back with a recap of my mini vacation about a month ago in SoCal (Southern California), specifically in sunny San Diego and Anaheim. I hope you enjoy the beauty in these cities through my photos (and feel free to check out my vlog of this trip as well. The link is at the bottom of this post)!


I'm back! With less than two weeks before school starts, I have major catching up to do with blogging. I've been preoccupied with experimenting with video for my Youtube channel (what, Youtube?)

Yes! I realized I never made a formal announcement on my blog, but I finally gained the courage to create fashion videos and share them to the Youtube community! It's been a learning  experience and am glad I just went for it. Sadly, with school coming up, videos will have to come to a pause until my next vacation (or most likely, next summer). But for now, enjoy what I've produced so far over at my channel, Unconventional Bliss (and don't forget to subscribe)!

Here is my latest video, where I shared some outfits in a Summer to Fall Lookbook to help you transition between the seasons. Make sure to like, comment, and subscribe over at Unconventional Bliss!
