Make it Blissful x Luminisce (A Christmas Gathering): Part 1

Every year, I look forward to going to Christmas parties. These are times when you get to see friends and family that you have not seen for the past year. One of the Christmas parties or gatherings that I always look forward to is the one with my fellow Blissmakers. As you all know, I contribute some articles every year at This site was built by my dear friend, Martine De Luna, to inspire women to achieve a happy and blissful life. Most of the women here also are part of the WAHMderful Life Community of Women (work-at-home-moms).

Make it Blissful x Luminisce Gathering

This group of women has helped me a lot in the past years, and I am really happy that I got to know this group of amazing women. You want to know why and how this group helped me?

1. This group believes in inclusive growth. Walang iwanan! Obviously, not literally (well, sometime literally, too! hihihi!), but more of the fact that we will do anything to help each other succeed. We will lend out a hand to those in need of inspiration, strength and comfort. We will support the projects of each one in this group, whether it be just posting on social media, sharing contacts or just by praying for each one’s success.

2. This group is comprised of strong willed and empowered women. They stand up for their beliefs, but at the same, they know how to respect other people’s opinions. When we disagree about stuff, we don’t burden each other with bombarding them with guilt, stress and anger.

3. Even with each one’s busy lives, when we get to see each other, it’s like we just saw each other yesterday. We all value friendship and we know that friendship doesn’t mean holding them too tightly or hugging them close to you always. Just like love, in friendship, you need to see your friends grow and achieve their dreams. We can’t be too possessive with our friends, too.

4. We just feel that everyone genuinely cares for each one!  This is the reason why I am also excited to build our (Martine of, Frances of and yours truly) new project, Beauty Biz Bliss, which was created for women of all ages.

I truly had a wonderful time time with the Blissmakers. Kuddos to Audrey for preparing this gathering! Thank you especially also to Dr. Kaycee of Luminisce! 🙂 I will write a part two on what we did and what was inside our Blissful Box!

Be part of our community! Like and also Looking forward to meeting you soon!

I am always not anywhere near “kikay-land”. I think that I was born with not a single fashionista or kikay bone in my body. My idea of decent clothes are shirts, jeans and rubber shoes. I usually go out without makeup, and for some reason, even wiht this clean face, I still get pimples often. What is going in with the world?

I know my ways are practical; however, I think that I need to make a complete U-turn when it comes to taking care of myself, especially my physical self. Today, que horror, my usual barista in Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf did not recognize me. When she finally did, she was shocked (I saw her “gulat” face) and she asked me why do I always look different every time I visit. Today, I know that she was not pleasantly surprised. I woke up feeling ugly, so I know that she didn’t recognize me because I looked haggard. It’s time to make a big change and this package came just in time! package

Bloom, the magazine, provides interesting and fun articles that give tips especially for the Filipina’s lifestyle.

The site

The shop is what I tried and I would say that it is perfect for those women who are just too busy to go out and shop. I value looking beautiful and I think it is important, and I really try to squeeze in time for shopping for beauty product, going to waxing salons and booking a hair color session with my hairstylist. Although, since I am busy, beautifying or taking care of myself takes a back seat, especially in times when I am busy with my business. is such a life saver since I can Categories in

what I shopped for…

I know… I know. I’m just really a practical chic! Hey, I love my hair and I think my hair is one of my assets. It’s really smooth and shiny and easy to manage. I think it’s because, I take such good care of it. I bought these Dove Shampoos and conditioner and this really cool tool called Tangle Teezer. I really love it! Every time I get out of the shower, I just use this brush and viola! My hair magically becomes beautiful!
