Now that I’m past the first quarter of my life, assuming I live until a 100 years old, (Oh dear God, I don’t think I want to reach a century old) it feels a tiny bit different. 26 just doesn’t have the same ring to it as 25. But even so, I’m #proudofmyage. (You can’t take the Olay woman out of me!) I reckon even when I’m 30, I’d still be proud of my age. I used to be afraid of turning older, not knowing that turning older also means becoming wiser and BETTER. I just wanted to be forever young. But now that I’m actually at this point in my life, transitioning to a new chapter, I realize being forever young has nothing to do with age and has everything to do with how you look at life. I look at life as glass half full–believing in all of its possibilities and opportunities. There are plenty of lessons to be learned and experiences to be undertaken. This makes me forever young. Well, this…and my shirt that clearly states that I am. If the shirt says it, no one can contest to it. LOL!
Let’s shift our attention to my outfit shall we? I got my “forever young”cropped top (which validates my being forever young), shorts and cardigan, all from local brand Mint. Mint has actually been around for some time now but it’s only my first time to try the brand. I used to think they carry mostly menswear but their collection for women is actually pretty wide! It’s definitely a brand to watch out for, especially after winning the Philippine Retailers Association’s Outstanding Filipino Retailer last year. If you’re looking for casual but cute shirts, cardigans and shorts, give Mint a try!
