 About Sef and his blog

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.
I am Sef Tiburcio, a licensed nurse but currently working as a medical 
customer rep for Dell. I live around the vicinity of Pasig City. :)
Sorry if I can't give out my exact address :) 
I am 24 years old and really getting older. lol. 
My blog started as an outfit post in lookbook last May, instead of
 putting the notes on my lookbook post, I decided to create an 
official blog some time in July. 

What / who inspired you to start your blog?
I decided to blog because of my friends. They have been 
always supportive ever since. For now, I am well inspired
whenever I get comments and appreciation from my readers.

What  motivates you to keep on blogging?
Actually, it's been my favorite hobby for now. 
I found myself shifting from one area to another, not to brag
but to inspire and motivate people too. 

Who take your outfit photos? 
My bestfriend, Recheal Basang. She's been very 
supportive since I started my first outfit post and blog :) .

About self and body love

How tall are you and how much do you weigh? 
I stand 5'8" tall and weighs 74kg 
(currently in the process of losing weight) LOL

Is there any trait / body part that you hate / don't like about yourself? 
 My nose I guess, its been disproportional with my face.
It's bigger than it used to be. Lol

How did you learn to accept and love that trait / body part? 
Whenever I hear bad comments about it, I always focus on the brighter
side, thinking that I was selected by God to pull this off well. 
I can say that few people with big nose stand out well and I am happy
to say that I am one of them.

What would be your advice for people who don't feel comfortable 
about their own body / skin?
 Hmmm interesting. For me, contentment is the key to success.
Always focus on your uniqueness and abilities. If you spend a
day looking at yourself in the mirror, nothing will happen
but if you spend your  day working all things out - a sweet
success is waiting for you all the time.

About fashion and style

When did you become interested in fashion?
During my high school years I guess. 

How would you describe your style? 
I don't settle in one style. I always try different styles.
For now, my favorite style is just like a 
Korean - semi formal chic.

Where do you get your fashion / style inspiration? is my number one source. 
If you feel like trying things or reinventing yourself, 
you'll learn a lot from that site. 

 Do you shop at thrift stores? If yes, What would be your
 number 1 tip for thrift store shoppers?
Yes, always. Just be patient and you'll see the best clothes.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your closet? 
 My vintage blazer.

Is there any outfit that you wish you didn't wear? If yes please describe it
 Yes. I am not into gothic styles, so I guess that look is a no-no for me.

What is your number 1 fashion tip? 
Try to experiment every time until you find your own style.

Random Q's

If you could trade lives with another blogger for 1 day,
 who would you trade with?
I want to be Adam Gallagher for one day. I just want to 
experience how to be busy  with 8 events on Saturday. I think 
I want to live my life doing the things that I am happy to do. I guess, 
Adam's life experience will be superb for me even just for a day.

If we could spend a day together, what would we do?
I actually spend my free days working out. So I think I'll teach 
you a simple routine on how to lose some pounds.

Message for your readers 
Thanks for reading my interview with the best bee in town. 
In my opinion, blogging is to inspire not to acquire. 
Things will go out well if you'll do it by heart. Always remember the 
people who helped you and never forget the words "thank you." 
Just stay humble and people will lift you up. 
Always put a smile on others face. 
You might not please everybody but that's fine. 
At the end of the day, it's you and your decisions to make
 who'll mold you to be the best person in the near future.

Give this good guy some love that he really deserves!
