Hola, Posh Squad! We know that most of us do not have the time to relax nowadays since we are all packed up with different things like school, work, some family and friends stuff. But hey! Life is short for you not to take a break from all the stress and just enjoy life. As we got older, we realized the importance of putting things aside and having a chill day — where you can just sit all day and chat with your bestie.
For us, what we usually do on our free days, especially during the sale season, is to hang out in malls and shop 'til we drop! (HAHAHAHA) But that was our young selves before "adulting" came to haunt us. We never really had the chance to share stories here and we want that to change from now on.
You guys are probably wondering how we met. The both of us have been besties ever since the 5th grade! That's... 10 years of seeing each other's faces! Okay, before we get ahead of ourselves telling the story, let's start from the beginning. It was our first time to be classmates, and we've never really sat next to each other. We met through a common friend, and instantly clicked because of our love for fashion. Yes! Ever since we were little, we always wanted to dress up and look stylish. We have this love for fashion and have been reading blogs. We loved Laureen Uy, Kryz Uy, and Camille Co. We even tried showing up in bazaars just to meet them! We might seem very shy in person, but that's just when we do not find something in common with others. Good thing we had something in common because if not, we wouldn't be here right now.
(Okay, we'll be using third person just so that we could tell the story clearly.)
We just became best friends when the school year was about to end. The day that we officially became best friends was February 8, 2008. Candis was letting her friends write on her slam book and when Daphne wrote that she actually treated Candis as one of her best friends, that day, Candis decided that she's also her best friend! It was so petty, right? But isn't every child like that? (HAHAHA!)
We think that we were destined to be best friends because there are really a lot of things we have in common. Unknowingly, we live in the same village! When Candis first found out that Daphne lives in the same village, she was really shocked! She may have thought it was all a scam. Add to another thing we have in common is that our grandmas are long time friends! YES! You heard it right — our GRANDMAS. It was really shocking and funny at the same time for the both of us when we knew about it.
Growing up, our friendship was tested a lot of times, and it almost came to the point that we would break our friendship. But thank God, we overcame our obstacles and have had a closer bond than before. As we grow older, we realized the importance of relationships. You don't need to have a lot of friends and join every group. Ignore the ones that are not worthy of your friendship because they could always bring you down emotionally. Keep the ones whom you know you can trust because you will always know that they have your back.
We really hope you enjoyed this post and let us know if you like more stories! Tell us what you wanna hear!
