Hello and welcome to my blog!

I am Jirah Merizz, an 18 year old girl living in the Philippines. I basically blog a little bit of everything but my favourite posts to write are the ones about my faith and the challenges that I encounter. I’m a certified movie buff and a bookworm. I do reviews sometimes.


My absolute love for books wanted me to write a novel. I did, I tried, but never finished one. I was 13 when I was introduced to books, I was 13 when I tried to write my own but now, I’m 17 and haven’t finished a single novel yet. That’s why I am so glad that I found a site where I can freely write– this community, the blogosphere.

I have a huge passion for blogging. I didn’t realise it that much but when I visited Zoella‘s blog, I became really interested in blogging hence I decided to make one. At first, I’ve had zero followers. And then it became one– I jumped in joy that time but it didn’t increase. I somewhat lost my fire for blogging. Summer 2017 came and I blogged everyday– my passion came back and my followers increased. From 40 to 400, up to 800, 900 and then now, 1000. I’m genuinely happy that someone reads my blog and I’m much happier to receive a comment because it feels like what you’re blogging about pays off. I love the feeling.

I’m all about lifestyle, books, films, music, clothes, beauty and now, I await for every adventure that I’ll have in my life.

I don’t know how you found my blog, but I really hope that you will enjoy my content and I hope we’ll become good blogging friends.

  1. I can feel you. I was also trying to hide my blog to my friends–and when they found out I was really shy. Well, I realized later on not to write anything I wont be proud of. HAHA. Btw, you have a lovely blog. Just keep on writing! 🙂

  2. Thanks! We’re exactly the same 🙂 I let them found out that I was blogging and I was shocked because they liked it. So yeah, just post nothing not to be proud of. 🙂

  3. Aw haha! So Zoë brought you here (in the blogging world because of Penny) as well? ☺️

  4. I’ve just started my blog and I had done the same thing! It was initially anonymous but I decided to put my first name out there in the end, but still hoping that no one I know sees it. I’m loving your blog, really glad I came across it.

    I thought I am the only one who are shy to tell others that I write blog.
    I am feeling encouraged to show my blog to who are known to me after visiting your blog.

  7. To be honest, my relatives still doesn’t know that I am blogging. But I loved it so much to the fact that I didn’t notice I was posting everyday. And I didn’t mind my relatives and friends, if they were meant to see my blog, then just let them be. I also learned that no need to be shy and afraid, just express how you truly feel and the rest comes along! And I am honestly so glad that I encouraged you! This is one of the reasons why I started blogging ☺Thank you so much x

  10. Its great to see how much God’s love is spreading. I too enjoy writing and am still trying to get the basis of my character’s world together before I actually start writing my characters.
