MEG, September 2013

When I quit my first and only full-time job in 2010, I was scared out of my wits. I remember crying after my last day, wondering if I did the right thing. I'd be lying if I told you that I haven't considered job offers from head hunters in the last three years. Having a full-time job is just Secure. Predictable. I don't have to worry about insurance. My salary would come on the dot.

But that's not what I truly want. I want to have my own business, preferably doing something I genuinely enjoy. I love blogging and organizing events, creating a solid brand and voice for businesses. I can't do all that with a vanilla desk job. Well, maybe I can, but it would be slow-going and my focus would be split up. 

So I did what I had to do and I am where I want to be.


On a related note - I'm not a famous person so every mention in a magazine is a big deal to me. <3 Thanks Guia Galvez and Wyatt Ong for the awesome article! Everyone needs to read it, because who doesn't want to make a career out of what they love doing? These are solid tips, you guys!

Featured on Mega February 2013 issue

I've started a few sentences, erased them all. I guess what I really want to say is that I'm speechless. I knew this feature was coming (I got interviewed after all!) but it's so surreal to finally see it in print. I, along with fellow beauty bloggers Shen and Martha, were featured in Mega's February 2013 issue.

Love this cover btw! This is illustrated by the same people who draws the Archie comics. Are you excited for the MAC Archie's Girls collection?

My face right now: ^_^ Thanks so much to Max Ignacio for the write-up! Sara Garces, girl, I adore you for taking the scans even though you're busy. Click after the jump to see the full transcript of the interview (if you're interested teehee).
