The current situation that we are all faced with has got us all reevaluating our priorities and investments. How far along can we go by without our stable employment? Do we still have recurring revenue streams even without the guarantee of a stable employment? Or do we have assets or precious heirlooms which we can monetize or easily convert to cash once the push comes to a shove?
That said, jewelry have always been connected to human culture since time immemorial. These beautiful adornments continue to hold real meaning and value. Throughout the course of history, jewelry has been offered as a trophy, an amulet, and sometimes, even art. It perfectly symbolizes love, a celebration of milestones, and of course, the ultimate representation of wealth.
Achieving work- life balance is never an easy feat, but allowing yourself to indulge in a little “solo-time”, even for just an hour, is a great way to start balancing out your career and your personal life. Before you head home (or even during your lunch break), treat yourself to a quick massage, or better yet, get a fresh manicure because a mani-pedi session is always a quick way to feel pampered, especially with nail salons that go beyond delivering a simple mani and pedi service, offering complimentary massages and even detoxifying hand, foot, and skin treatments!
Conventions and Events gathering the top decision makers of various SME’s around the country has also pivoted to take on a different platform due to the current situation that we are faced with. Due to the restrictions placed by the Government on “Social Distancing” as the new normal, public gatherings and massive events are advised to be minimized or restricted to avoid the spread of the Covid-19 virus and infecting others as well. Hence, Companies had to adjust and move their events onto the Digital Sphere while ensuring that the full-blown experience would still be the same for its valued partners and attendees.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, or so they say, It’s Christmas time once again, and despite all the ruckus and ups and downs of 2020. With the pandemic happening, my Dad’s partner passing away due to Covid-19 and our whole family getting infected with the virus. At least we are still alive and well at the end of the day. So I guess that is still something to be thankful for right? And despite the pandemic and the massive layoffs and businesses which closed. At least me and my husband are still gainfully employed and can still provide for our little one and small family.
Being stuck at home on most days due to the pandemic and with all those social distancing protocols enacted by the Government has left us with no choice but to pivot and adjust our daily patterns to make working from home convenient and hassle free for all of us.
We all know how integral it is to take care of our health, especially during these troubling times. From tending to my infant as a newly minted Mom, to working my 8 hour shift for my day job, to managing orders and sending it to my clients for my Online Store https://www.instagram.com/sourcedbylou/, to managing our new household since we just moved in to a more spacious unit a few days ago to slowly being more consistent and getting back on track with blogging, one of my first passions since I was back in the grades wherein I used to create poems and short stories in my notepad while I was waiting for my school bus to arrive and pick me up from school.
It’s been almost 7-8 months since the lockdown started, how have you been? How’s your mental health been doing as of late? 2020 has been a rollercoaster ride for all of us, not only were we shaken up from our comfort zones but we were also isolated from our friends, family members and co-workers who we used to chat up and catch up everyday at work.

As I turn another leaf over of the year that was 2019, I cannot help but fathom everything that had transpired during the course of the last 12 months. From quitting my seemingly stable Corporate Job to starting my own budding start-up, to getting engaged, travelling to various parts of the Globe, learning the ebbs and flows of the Business, starting a family and getting right down and dirty to my Finances.
Just last week, I got invited to this very insightful and interesting event spearheaded by The Asian Institute of Management ( AIM ) Master of Business Management ( MBM ) Batch 1995.
The Event was called “Notables at AIM”, a nontraditional speaker series hosted by an array of luminaries with expertise and insight on relevant topics. Thought leaders and captains of industry are invited to engage not only with the AIM community but with the public in attendance as well. The speaker series kicked off last Thursday, November 28 at the Fuller Hall, AIM, Makati City.
