It’s already the 3rd quarter of the year! Time really does fly so fast especially when you’re having fun. I can just remember the days when I was this wide eyed hopeful fresh graduate trying to find my niche in this seemingly challenging Corporate World and now I am already done with my MBA degree with 7 years of working experience under my belt.
They say that the best things in life come when you least expect it. This age old adage holds true for me since just last week as I celebrated my birthday my friends, family and KD all connived together to stage a surprise birthday bash for me.
Being a woman can sometimes be a blessing or a curse it actually depends on how you perceive things. One thing I sometimes hate is the amount of time that we consume trying to make ourselves look attractive. I mean, going to the salon for our monthly hair treatment sessions and mani- pedi moments. Fitting out various outfits in retail stores trying to find the clothes that best compliments our figures, testing various make up swatches just to find the right shade for our skin tone.
Also when our monthly visitor comes, in my case it is usually accompanied by hunger pangs, mood swings and feelings of being bloated or depression at some point.
However, it is still a matter of perspective right? So you can opt to look at the glass half full or the glass half empty. In my case, I am actually trying to view that glass to be half full instead of the other way around. So despite us women taking a long time to beautify ourselves it also has gains in the long run since it makes you feel good about yourself especially if you look well on the outside, it makes you feel more confident with yourself on the inside.
With that said, monthly waxing sessions for my underarm hairs are usually part of my things to do every month. I usually head off to Lay Bare or to the nearest waxing salon within my location ATM and then get my treatments there. However, not everyone has the luxury of time and some may opt to go for the permanent solution to this recurring issue hence the birth of the Gentlemax Pro Laser Hair Removal 🙂
Being a blogger entails various kinds of things. Some do it for the compensation that it offers, some do it to serve as an outlet for all their innermost thoughts, some do it to make friends and meet new people from all walks of life and some just love to write.
What started as a passion project for me since 2014 has eventually bloomed into something more than what I initially bargained for. Through my blog, opportunities were opened and people from all walks of life became my friends. It widened my horizons too since I was invited to a couple of new product launches and up and coming hot spots in the metro.
For me, it is more than just getting freebies from your sponsors or brands but it is more of a personal expression. An online diary wherein I can vent what I feel and what I want to say. It is more of sharing my personal thoughts on various subject matters and releasing off some steam when I’m down in the doldrums.
It’s Friday once again! 🙂 or should I say Fri- Yay? due to the long weekend that is about to commence this starting weekend. I am so excited and I cannot help it because aside from me getting to embark on another new set of adventures for the weekend with my upcoming hotel staycation and a party at Valkerie for another product launch tomorrow I will also get my well deserved shut eye and just lounge around in our attic (where my room is located now) and catch up on the re-runs of my favorite shows and movies. 🙂 Yey! 🙂
In this day and age wherein women are granted more privileges as compared to the generations before her wherein women were mostly relegated as stay at home Mom’s and are left to take care of the household and of their kids. Times have definitely changed and women nowadays are granted more freedom with regards to their life choices like having a husband, having kids and climbing the corporate ladder and not being tied down to anyone who doesn’t support her goals for that matter.
But amidst being a kick ass lady with a career and lots of things going on for her. We should also never forget to love ourselves more and take care of our bodies and our health cause there really is no purpose in having everything this world could offer you when you’re not healthy inside which can sometimes reflect in our skin.
It has been a busy roller coaster ride of events for me the past few weeks juggling a couple of activities all at the same time but it was okay I guess what better time to learn time management than now right?
But of course as ladies we should all learn to take a breather sometimes and unwind, rest and relax ourselves to brace ourselves for another busy week ahead. 🙂 So when I got an invite from Mommy Lariza of MWAH I automatically penciled it in my planner and looked forward to this pampering session at the end of the week. However, since it was a Friday payday that night I wasn’t able to make it in time and ended up getting there after most of them was done and all dolled up so in my resolve to make it early next time I booked myself up for an appointment with them on that same weekend and decided to come in a hour early so as to avoid the traffic. 🙂 Good thing it was a Sunday and due to the weather conditions that day not a lot of people were booked that day so I was easily prioritized after just a few minutes of waiting 🙂 Sometimes it pays to be early! 🙂
So here goes my GlamSquad adventure! 🙂
We all know the saying that your 20’s are the time for you to explore, go to places, travel, read a lot, discover new cuisines, find the happiness you deserve and never settle for something less than what you deserve. This is the time to search for what really makes you happy. Who says you can’t right? Sometimes honey, dreams do come true if you only have the right mindset and focus. Dare to dream and go out of your comfort zone and live the life you were always meant to have. That diet that you keep putting off for I don’t know how long? Get started on that! :), the book that takes you like forever to read? Start with one chapter a day, that blog you always wanted to set up and update? Write away! :), that mountain that you only dare dream of conquering? Practice on your office stairways :). Nothing is impossible until you say so.
A lot of things had already transpired this past two months and I constantly came into thinking on whether or not I should disclose it in my blog which took me quite a long time to update since a lot of things had already happened in between. This perhaps would be an apt soundtrack for what I’m feeling right now since life is a constant search for self discovery and finding what truly makes you happy.
