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.

Today, this appeared on my Timehop:


That was the first time I contemplated taking a big leap of faith. The Beginning. Sure, I miss the comforts of my old working and living arrangements and how everything was an established routine, like clockwork. Now I deal with a lot of stress not only during events but even in the most minutiae of everyday PE work; I've also had to deal with some people who undermine me and my abilities, but to be perfectly honest? I wouldn't trade this for anything.

(Also, joke's on them because I outlasted them. I win, HAHA.)

Sometimes I worry that I whine around my boyfriend and my friends too much, but I'm not really complaining. I'm just releasing stress, heh. I'm thankful for friends in the industry who understand. Special shout out to Tish, who I met for coffee last Saturday.

Now it's late and I need to go back to sleep because I still need to recover completely for this busy week, but I'll be leaving you with a special giveaway!
Find Out How and Where to Get Good Deals When Online Shopping and Win $100 Gift Card From Sephora
If you like online shopping like most of us do, well then let me share with you three valuable tips on how you can save and where to score the best deals. 
Three valuable tips on how you can save when online shipping: 
The cardinal rule in smart shopping is to avoid paying in retail. So my first tip is to hunt for coupons before making a purchase. Couponing is the best way to save when shopping either in-store or online, and luckily, there are now sites that are solely dedicated for coupons. There are actually quite a few sites but the best one out there is DEALSPOTR
Dealspotr is the “Wikipedia of deals” with thousands of community members posting and curating deals for 65,000 brands 24/7. In fact, it has 54% more working coupon codes than the other known coupon site, based on recent study. 
(To know more about Dealspotr, you can visit and sign up here.) 
Next tip is to stack coupons whenever possible
Some retailers allow you to use multiple coupons per transaction so maximize your savings by entering the codes strategically. So for example you have a coupon code for a $10 off purchase and another for a 15 percent discount off— enter the 15 percent discount code first, then the $10 code so you’ll get 15 percent off the full price of the item, before the $10 discount. 
Lastly, avoid shipping fees. Most online stores offer free shipping if you spend a certain amount so take advantage of that. But in case you’re falling short of that minimum, search DEALSPOTR and more often than not, you’ll find a free shipping coupon on your favorite store.

Now that you know these handy tips, Dealspotr together with LipstickandChopsticks.com, RonnaBonifacio.com, Krissyfied.com, MrsMommyholic, Tauyanm.com, and RochelleRivera.com want you to experience the “shopping high” so we’re giving away $100 Sephora gift card to one lucky winner.
