10 Happy Things Vol. 7

10 happy things

The start of 2017 has been full of travel. Went to so many places I’ve never been to before with wonderful people along with me.

Saw 6 waterfalls in a span of almost 2 months. 2 Islands, 3 beaches, God knows how many rivers or streams, and a number of mountains.

Thought I would feel uncomfortable traveling with new people but I gained some new friends and I think I’m getting better with small talks and carrying a conversation.


I finally received my pre-order of ItsJudyTime + Pixi Eye Palette. Oh, so gorgeous! Might review this on my blog soon, or on my Instagram Story @alissamags or maybe my YouTube Channel! Check those out.

I enrolled in some online courses that can enhance my skills on my job. I have yet to start them cos I’ve been resting after having stomach flu.

Jan is coming home soon. I don’t know when but I’m excited to see him again. 

Finally uploaded my Boracay Vlog on my channel! Will upload more vlogs soon. So subscribe to be notified!

Having blog opportunities whether big or small is always a blessing. A small brand approached me to work with them.

I’m slowly introducing my blog to my personal social media accounts. Well, barely but I’ll get there. I’m having a hard time sharing it on my Facebook account. I guess I’m scared of judgements and feeling of being vulnerable as I share personal things here.

Lastly, Valentine’s Day is almost here. After years of being single, I finally found someone who’s right for me to celebrate it with. Even from thousands of miles away.

    Are the online courses free? I tried enrolling to free courses but I didn’t finish it.

    Congratulations on your blog opportunities! It’s nice to start with something small for now. I hope more opportunities will come.

    I only share my blog on my Facebook page, not personal account. I have the same worries! Have a great weekend, Alissa!

      No, it has a fee. It is kind of pricey but once in a while, they have discounts. 🙂 You can try to finish the one you studied. And thanks, Karen. I really hope my blog will grow.

      Lol same, I only use my facebook page! lol

    Initially started my blog as my personal outlet too. But now that it has opened me to more opportunities, it’s very hard to draw a line between keeping it private and sharing it on social media. Haha. I realized, sooner or later, I’d have to do it especially if I want brands to take me seriously, so now I’m slowly injecting bits and pieces on my accounts (but not yet on Facebook! I guess we both know why hahaha). Hopefully, someday soon.

      Exactly! I’m in the in-between stage now where I want to be private but at the same time, I want to monetize my blog. Hope we can get over this someday.

    Sounds like you’ve done some awesome travel!
    To be honest I still don’t share my blog with a lot of people in “real life”, I’m too self conscious!

    omg the pixi judy’s time palette is a dream! i’ve been wanting a neutral, warm brownish pinkish eyeshadow palette but pixi isn’t available in where i live so *sadface* international shipping would be expensive and troublesome too, yikes. instead, i’ve been eyeing the sleek i-divine palette since they’re super affordable and i heard they are quite pigmented too.

      Where are you based right now? I haven’t tried swatching it yet cos I wanna make a first impression makeup look but it does look very pigmented. Heard about the sleek eye palette, almost bought one myself.

    I would love to see some waterfalls. It’s been years since I’ve seen one . . .

    Good luck with your online courses. I loved taking classes, but I’m also glad those days are behind me right now XD Now I just have to do trainings online, but those are usually done in an hour or two.

    OMG I love the eyeshadow palette! 🙂 Anyway, I used to feel the same way about sharing my blog over at my social media. For the most part, people have been very supportive 🙂

      Having supportive people does make it easier. I’m just self conscious about it sometimes.
