My Christmas Wish List

Photos by Liza Benetua (photos included here that are not mine are given credit to their rightful owners)

I am now claiming that 2018 is my year. I will not say, “I wish that my 2018 is going to be great” but I will say to myself over and over again that things are better in 2018.

I have things I plan to do next year and here is the list I have made:

1)Travel the Philippines, my home town, more. 

This year, I was able to visit different provinces in Bataan like Balanga, Orani, Orion, and Abucay during a Lenten pilgrimage that I attended. Then for my church group’s summer outing, we went to San Juan, Laiya, Batangas.

Next year, I am targeting the West Visayas, particularly my dad’s home town Silay City,  and my mom’s home town Talisay, Negros Occidental. Hopefully,  I want to go to Iloilo too. What I love about Negros is the fact that they have preserved the ancestral houses that were built in earlier years. I am also planning to do a sentimental journey as well, and see those places that my dad hangs out at. Well, I wish someone can accompany me on my journey, a special someone perhaps. But all that will happen at the right time.

2) Get the best equipment for future vlog, and improve my blog

I am planning to migrate to YouTube, so I want to get a good camera that will produce clear, and crisp videos when I upload them. At the same time, I want better looking photos for my blog as well. I am considering getting the following:

Canon EOS M100 (source photo from snapshot.canon-asia.com)

3) Take professional makeup artist courses

Yes, I want to be confident when applying makeup. I want to learn about the technical side of makeup. I am considering Maquillage Professionnel  or Center for Aesthetic Studies. 

However, if this is not possible, I will just go back to watching YouTube videos of makeup tuorials in the mean time while saving to take up classes.

4) To attend more events and workshops in 2018

I am blessed to have met new people in the various events and workshops that I have attended. The recent ones were the Blogapalooza 2017,  Personal Styling Workshop by Donna Cuna- Pita,  PayPal Freelancers Workshops of Abe Olandres,  Fitz Villafuerte and Liz Lanuzo, founder of Project Vanity,  Woomen.ph‘s Beauty Deconstructed and Media Launch ,  Jellyfish Consultancy Education Fair, and The Beauty Junkee’s 8th Anniversary Meet and Greet
