I met Atom Araullo today

06 August 2016

And here's the proof:

For context: #romanceclass started as a community of local authors and aspiring authors of romance books. This group was started by Mina V. Esguerra as an extension of the romance classes she offered but has since grown to include readers. It's a supportive and uplifting community and I am happy to be part of it. ♥

Just recently, Mina started organizing #romanceclass lectures where they invite personalities from certain fields to give us a clearer understanding of their professions and the dynamics of people in the workplace to either serve as inspiration for possible book characters, or to assist authors in the middle of writing about characters who happen to be in these fields.

Today we had Pia Arcangel and Atom Araullo representing journalists. 

My ballet class with Prima Ballerina Lisa Macuja-Elizalde of Ballet Manila

05 August 2016

If my career in PR doesn't pan out, I think I'll pursue my original dream and become a ballerina instead.

... is what I was thinking of on our way to The Lisa Macuja School of Ballet Manila's new branch in Fisher Mall.

Such wishful thinking. Such lofty dreams.

Yes! As part of its continuing effort to bring ballet closer to the people and the people closer to ballet, Ballet Manila opens a new branch in Quezon City to bring the signature discipline and technique that it has come to be known for closer to aspiring ballerinas and danseurs residing north of Metro Manila.

See? I can even look the part!

Scents, sensibilities, and favorite feelings

04 August 2016

I like scents and I cannot lie. After the long and extremely busy week we had last week (I mean, yeah, all weeks are long and busy when you work in PR, but last week was extraordinary because we had the huge Penshoppe x Lucky Blue Smith series of events), it's nice to sit back and enjoy a little aromatherapy.

What perfect time to open my package from FAVORI than last weekend, then. Really, my new Leaf Aerator is heaven-sent. ♥

Even a total noob can set this up. All you need to remember is to put enough water in the container while it is unplugged, add a few drops of your water-soluble oil of choice, and voila! You now have a fancy addition to your room that removes dust and smoke and reduces indoor pollution as it deodorizes and refreshens.

The color-changing display and LED illumination are nice touches, too. I was mesmerized!

Remembering The Beginning (+ $100 Sephora Giveaway!)

25 July 2016

Today I wasn't able to go to work because I was sick. I didn't go to the doctor but I was feeling flu-like symptoms and was too weak. I also couldn't stay awake for more than two hours without feeling woozy. This might have been avoided had I stayed home last Saturday but I couldn't. I don't like it when people flake on me, especially at the last minute, so I hate doing it to others myself.

Anyway, the point is I haven't been around much lately because I've been drowning in work responsibilities (even more so these days) but it's okay because I love what I do and I can't imagine myself doing anything else.

I'll be spending my fourth year with my company in August. In the grand scheme of things that is but a speck, but ohmygoodness it blows my mind how much I have learned and experienced, how many people I have met and talked to, and how many emails and text messages I have sent out already, among others.
