Mom of two...Soon!

A Tribute To My Husband, Bien Felix <3
Today is Holy Friday, and I am left alone in the house because my son and his dad went to my in-law's house. So I have some me time--reflected on what happened to me the past year, prayed to thank God for all the blessings, and made me realize that Bien is my greatest blessing.

Cheesy as it may sound but I am with tears as I write my heart out in this blog. Bien changed my life. He met me fresh out of college- lost, broke, sad but passionate and full of dreams. Glad that I made the mistake of kissing him one drunken night, because that moment saved me.

Bien gave me a home, pulled me out of my dormitory to live with him. He gave me a family because I was that girl from the province living alone in the city. As a young kid, I knew I will be big someday. I am confident but maybe it would be harder if he is not with me.  Bien was there all the way to push and support me-- he was there when I was down, doubting myself, he was there when I was tired, he was there to celebrate all my victories.

We had endured 9 years before finally tying the knot. Oh God those 9 years weren't easy. Our relationship experienced a lot of drama, hitting rock bottom and tests. But he was always the strong one. I fell into a lot of temptations, made a lot of bad decisions, but he loved me like how Jesus loved us. Seroisuly! He is insane--- selfless and just perfect.  And I am so lucky. Mind you, LUCKY is an understatement!

Sometimes I feel so unworthy, but I will always try. I will try to be the best wife because he deserves it. I may not say and show it often, but I love you so much Bien Theodore Felix. You are a gift to mankind. Gab, his future siblings and I will be forever grateful for you <3

The Power of the Vision Board
I made my first vision board last year (2016). It started as a task when I joined Pru Life. Our manager asked us to make a visualization tool of our goals and dreams. I say it's very effective-- a daily reminder of what you want to achieve.

Here's my 2016 Vision Board:

I ticked off the following:
- a brand marketing job where I was able to spearhead a TVC Campaign
- got engaged
- not a member of the MDRT yet, but awarded Senior Achiever of Pru Life's National Achievers Club
- got a new car
- travelled (international and local), Europe and Japan still pending :p

So here's my 2017 Vision Board

This year will be about taking bold risks, working harder and trusting God's promise for rewards beyond my imagination.

I am excited for what's in store for me and my family this year! Woot! Woot!

I am Engaged! #FinallyFelix
Everything you need, will come to you at the perfect time. Trust God's timing, it is always worth the wait.

So last December 3, we had a family vacation. I booked a flight to Bohol and stayed in Hennan Resort. Since December 6 is our anniversary, I told the hotel staff to prepare a cake and scatter rose petals all over the room.
When Gab and Bien saw the room, they were in awe. My surprise worked!

But life is funny and Bien indeed is one of a kind. He changed our lives 2 minutes after.

Congratulations to me, he finally put a ring on it!
8 years of patiently waiting---it's about damn time!
Made my heart and soul sooo happy. More than that, noone can erase the joy in our child's face when he found out we are gonna marry. Oh pure love.

Here's the link to the proposal video, captured by our 5 year old son. Great job Gab!

There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book.

PRU LIFE UK National Achiever's Club
2 years as part time agent in Prulife and 2 time National Achievers' Club Qualifier! Yay! My landing in PruLife is indeed a blessing. Makes my heart and soul happy every single day. Saving and changing lives one policy at a time.

The big 3-0!
"Life kicks you around sometimes. It scares you and it beats you up, but there’s a day when you realize you’re not just a survivor, you are a warrior.”

Today, I celebrate my 30th birthday. For the first time in my life, I don’t have a birthday wishlist. What I have is a list of the things and people that I am grateful for.

My family and close friends know all about the hardships I’ve experienced in the past. But God really has an amazing way of unfolding his plan for each one of us. FAITH is the magic word.

I am 30 and blessed with an awesome kid, a supportive and loving partner. Two of my siblings have settled down and two are kicking ass in school.  My mom is happy and very successful. Literally, could not ask for more. Moments like these, I miss my father, but I know he’s proud of what we’ve become.

So what happens after 30? I guess I’ll just have to enjoy the ride, keep on learning new things, be the coolest mom, be the best wife, succeed in my career, travel the world and change people’s lives for the better. I am as ideal and optimistic as I was 10 years ago and I won’t lose that fire.

2015 has been a great year!

Grateful for the following:

I've landed a career in Brand, still have a lot to learn..but I will get there! (Friends, make #Jergens a part of your skincare routine)
Inset from Cosmo Body (Cosmopolitan Magazine November 2015)

Vibelle Distribution Inc.

  • I'm able to inspire and change lives through PruLife UK (this one is my passion project)

PruLife UK Diamond-Sinagtala Unit

  • Bien and I managed to have our home renovated (no place like home indeed)

Felix Crib 2.0

My kitchen :)

  • And above all, I have that work-life balance that I've always wanted. I have more time now with my family!!!

​Lessons learned this year:

  • Prioritize. Weigh what matters the most--is it your time? salary? position? family? I decided to dedicate this year to being a mom and a homemaker, that's why I got the courage to give up my life in production.  Looking back, glad that I took that leap of faith.

  • Believe in yourself. You'll be surprised on what you are capable of doing. Grab every opportunity to learn something new.

  • Surround yourself with positive people. I am very lucky to have a very supportive partner and friends, who inspire me to be better. I went to more than 10 interviews when I was trying to look for a job in Marketing, but no one would hire me (because of my age vs. the lack of experience in brand vs. my asking price), but these people constantly remind me of my worth. The "Ms Bulagarias" of my life. :p

  • Do not compromise. You know what you deserve, it will be worth the wait, I swear.

  • Be sincere with your intentions. This I learned as a financial advisor for PruLife UK. Just help other people save for the future, help them protect their families. To be frank, it's very painful to bury a loved one--physically, emotionally, and even financially. Learned this when my father died and I do not want any other mom or kid to experience what I've experienced like having to deal with financial issues while mourning. Yes, I get commisions from every life insurance policy sold, but that is just a bonus. PruLife UK is a mission for my soul.

  • You know yourself better than anyone else. Do not allow anyone to drag you down. I deal with lot of backstabbers and judgemental people everyday, but I dont care. What's important is that you are happy and at peace with yourself.

  • Do your best and God will do the rest. Cliche but true.

For 2016, I just wish to travel more.  And i really want to have another baby by age 30, but I want to get married first. Haha. Demanding much! I will allow the Law of Attraction do its wonders. <3 Happy New Year!

Spread the Glow!
I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason.

I was one of the Jergens Ladies in 2012. I won Php100,000 worth of prizes from them.

Never did I imagine that I'll work for the brand. That I will own it and love it with all my heart.

I spent 7 years of my life in post production and have zero background in brand management. That is why I am very grateful that Vibelle Distribution Inc. took a chance on me and gave me a break.

They hired me as Brand Officer and on my third month, I was able to mount a big event and even launch a product! The Hydrating Coconut Moisturizer will always be special--it's my baby!

Pulling this off wasn't easy. But with focus, hardwork, passion and the right people to support you, you can never fail. Prayers, of course!

Too much joy in my heart. Thank You Lord for your surprises. 😘
