Hey, I’m Mars.
I started out hari-harian after seeing bloggers so effortlessly put themselves out there and the positive community. As someone who struggles with anxiety and self-image, I hoped to gain such confidence and named this blog with the idea of faking it ’til I make it (and also that everyone struggles, etc).
Hari-harian has since branched off as more of my online journal/lifestyle blog where I can practice expressing myself. I’m honestly more into history and social/political issues than fashion and beauty, but I try to blend them by highlighting groups working on an issue and provide a good balance.
Whether it’s my experiments with makeup or what boosts one’s esteem (when I find it personally), I hope what I share helps! I try to write what I’d like to see others write and be.
More about Mars
I’m a USian of Filipino and German descent. I’m an aries. I listen to nearly any music, but I’m very particular (I hate ballads)!! Trent Reznor and The Simpsons are big influences. I’ve lived in Florida my whole life. I’m a pro-choice atheist (but could totally be down liberation theology). When I say, “typical millennial,” I mean broke and laughs at absurd shit.
I want to learn about WWI, learn Philippine history, develop a fashion style, learn how to cook, handle my health, cultivate meaningful relationships, and find my place in my interests.
