My First Bridal Shower at The Spa

Early this year, barely a month after I got engaged, THE SPA was kind enough to offer to take care of my bridal shower. I was beyond kilig about this!!! Patrick and I didn't even have a date, venue, or a caterer yet---but I already had my bridal shower details set already! HAHAHA :) After months of anticipation, I was finally treated to an intimate bridal SPARTY with my closest girlfriends. As my Matron of Honor (chief Matrona ba tawag dun?! Hahaha, I kid!) Alessa took charge of all the little details. Since she's my BFF, she knew exactly what type of shower would suit me.Not that I have anything against raunchy bachelorette parties, I've attended quite a few and they were all very fun. I guess it's just my personality (and also the type of friends I have)..I prefer small, casual get togethers that usually involve food, conversation, and a cool activity. In this case, the activity was PAMPERING at THE SPA! 
Alessa gave everything a very personal touch with lots of DIY crafts and of course Yummy Pipino food!! (Lemongrass Skewers, Puttanesca, and Green Tea Cupcakes!). I loved the brown and green theme!:) Check out the cute bandaritas with my name stamped on it, she made those rubber stamps from scratch!
My girls and I were treated to special facials and foot massages at the LOFT of The SPA in Bonifacio High Street. The first floor of the loft is a cozy area for guests to mingle and enjoy some light snacks, while the second floor is the treatment area. You can have up to 8 treatments simultaneously which means you can enjoy some chika time with your girlfriends while being pampered by the well trained staff of The Spa. For a small group of 10-15 girls, this is the perfect oasis in the middle of a busy business district. 
The Spa also pampered us with goodies. We each took home their signature scent blend and an oil burner! Now my condo will smell just like The Spa! Woohoo! :)
Check out my littlest spa guest, my inaanak, River!:) 
While the first batch of girls got their treatments, we decided to good around in the first floor. Kaia and Ding are old college friends of mine and whenever the four of us get together, it becomes a total riot! Ok, you probably won't get what we were doing in these shots---I don't get it either! Hahaha! The first collage is our "Diwata sa Gubat" photo shoot--inspired by Alessa. And the next is our "Naliligo Sa Batis" photo shoot---again, inspired by Alessa. As you can see, magaling si Ale mang-uto ng kaibigan.Hahaha!
After our "Prinsesa Alessa naglalaba sa BATIS scene", we decided to do a round of Pinoy henyo! At one point, I was the GUESSER and Ale was my teammate. 
Patty: Tao?
Alessa: OO!
Patty: Nagtratrabaho sa gobyerno?
Alessa: Uhhhh..pwede....
Patty: May uniform siya?
Alessa: Uhhh...OO...
Patty: Security Guard?
Alessa: Kinda...
Patty: What's the answer??

This party was a much deserved anti-stress time for me and my friends. We don't see each other as much as I would love to because of our crazy work schedules but whenever we do, it's always so meaningful and memorable. God has blessed me with genuine friends, what a blessing you guys are to me!Thanks also for all the vutesy pantulogs you gave I can finally retire my butas butas tshirts!Hahaha!  Thank you again to Ms Cel Torrefranca and THE SPA for this wonderful treat for our faces and tired feet! Ooohhh, I'm a poet (again).

21 Tips to Become the Most Productive Person You Know

My friend Amina Aranaz posted this on her Facebook wall and it was so inspiring, I just HAD to share it with all of you. Here are 21 tips by Robin Sharma for Productivity! List it down folks! :)

#1. Check email in the afternoon so you protect the peak energy hours of your mornings for your best work.

#2. Stop waiting for perfect conditions to launch a great project. Immediate action fuels a positive feedback loop that drives even more action.

#3. Remember that big, brave goals release energy. So set them clearly and then revisit them every morning for 5 minutes.

#4. Mess creates stress (I learned this from tennis icon Andre Agassi who said he wouldn’t let anyone touch his tennis bag because if it got disorganized, he’d get distracted). So clean out the clutter in your office to get more done.

#5. Sell your TV. You’re just watching other people get successful versus doing the things that will get you to your dreams.

#6. Say goodbye to the energy vampires in your life (the negative souls who steal your enthusiasm).

#7. Run routines. When I studied the creative lives of massively productive people like Stephen King, John Grisham and Thomas Edison, I discovered they follow strict daily routines. (i.e., when they would get up, when they would start work, when they would exercise and when they would relax). Peak productivity’s not about luck. It’s about devotion.

#8. Get up at 5 am. Win the battle of the bed. Put mind over mattress. This habit alone will strengthen your willpower so it serves you more dutifully in the key areas of your life.

#9. Don’t do so many meetings. (I’ve trained the employees of our FORTUNE 500 clients on exactly how to do this – including having the few meetings they now do standing up – and it’s created breakthrough results for them).

#10. Don’t say yes to every request. Most of us have a deep need to be liked. That translates into us saying yes to everything – which is the end of your elite productivity.

#11. Outsource everything you can’t be BIW (Best in the World) at. Focus only on activities within what I call “Your Picasso Zone”.

#12. Stop multi-tasking. New research confirms that all the distractions invading our lives are rewiring the way our brains work (and drop our IQ by 5 points!). Be one of the rare-air few who develops the mental and physical discipline to have a mono-maniacal focus on one thing for many hours. (It’s all about practice).

#13. Get fit like Madonna. Getting to your absolute best physical condition will create explosive energy, renew your focus and multiply your creativity.

#14. Workout 2X a day. This is just one of the little-known productivity tactics that I’ll walk you through in my new online training program YOUR PRODUCTIVITY UNLEASHED (details at the end of this post) but here’s the key: exercise is one of the greatest productivity tools in the world. So do 20 minutes first thing in the morning and then another workout around 6 or 7 pm to set you up for wow in the evening.

#15. Drink more water. When you’re dehydrated, you’ll have far less energy. And get less done.

#16. Work in 90 minute blocks with 10 minute intervals to recover and refuel (another game-changing move I personally use to do my best work).

#17. Write a Stop Doing List. Every productive person obsessively sets To Do Lists. But those who play at world-class also record what they commit to stop doing. Steve Jobs said that what made Apple Apple was not so much what they chose to build but all the projects they chose to ignore.

#18. Use your commute time. If you’re commuting 30 minutes each way every day – get this: at the end of a year, you’ve spent 6 weeks of 8 hour days in your car. I encourage you to use that time to listen to fantastic books on audio + excellent podcasts and valuable learning programs. Remember, the fastest way to double your income is to triple your rate of learning.

#19. Be a contrarian. Why buy your groceries at the time the store is busiest? Why go to movies on the most popular nights? Why hit the gym when the gym’s completely full? Do things at off-peak hours and you’ll save so many of them.

#20. Get things right the first time. Most people are wildly distracted these days. And so they make mistakes. To unleash your productivity, become one of the special performers who have the mindset of doing what it takes to get it flawless first. This saves you days of having to fix problems.

#21. Get lost. Don’t be so available to everyone. I often spend hours at a time in the cafeteria of a university close to our headquarters. I turn off my devices and think, create, plan and write. Zero interruptions. Pure focus. Massive results.

I truly hope these 21 productivity tips have been valuable to you. And that I’ve been of service. Your productivity is your life made visible. Please protect it.

Stay productive.

Our Deepest Thank Yous

Today, I would like to take this time to personally thank our happy wedding helpers and suppliers. They say that the month leading to your wedding day becomes a crazy blur so before things get chaotic, I just want to make sure I honor the people who have kept me and Patrick in zen mode. A lot of people have told me that I'm surprisingly chill about our wedding preps and as much as I want to take credit for it, I can boldly say that it's only because I have been blessed with such good friends. It helps to be surrounded by positive and cheery people all the time! The wedding hasn't been 100% smooth sailing, we've had some hiccups here and there and I've had my moments of topakness (I can see Patrick snickering! Huyyysssst! Stop that!) but God has been faithful in ironing out all the kinks. And another thing to praise God for is for making everything fit within our  tiny budget!!! We shall be proof that you can be kuripot and still have your dream wedding (a smaller version of it at least, hehehe).

My Entourage
To Alessa and Kathleen who will be taking charge of the DIY props, thank you for injecting your creativity and craftiness into our simple wedding. I can already imagine all the crafters (Alessa's fangirls) drooling over all the little props that you will make for us! Hahaha! Thanks also for accompanying me to fit my was a mini milestone in my life and Im happy I shared it with you.

To Muffin, thanks for taking charge for the hair and makeup team and room assignments. I know you've been swamped at work these past few months but it means so much to see you give your free time just to assist me.

To Stella and Cecil, thank you for being my cheerleaders from day one. Every time I discover a peg you are the top two persons I send it to (next to my mom), you reply with excitement and kilig that makes the planning even more fun!

To Lea. thanks for being my fellow bride-to-be..I loved exchanging notes with you through BBM and email! It just felt so good to have someone to experience all these little happy bride and soon to be wed moments with!

To Mic, thanks for shopping in the States and preparing the balikbayan of goodies for us! We were able to save a whole lot of buckaroos thanks to you guys!

Marge Arellano-Montemayor
The Coordinator
Marge and her husband RG have been good friends of Patrick for years. He was their eternal third wheel, even third wheeling in their Christmas gifts "Merry Christmas from Marge, RG, and Patrick". Along with Dre and Anne, they were the first few friends of Patrick who I immediately bonded with. As soon as we got engaged, Marge lovingly offered to serve us by organizing our wedding. Although she's not a professional wedding planner (YET), I could not imagine anyone better equipped to fix the details of our wedding. She's possibly one of my OC-est friends (next to Cecil! hahaha), efficient, and very considerate. Even before I could possibly stress over something, she steps in and takes the burden from me. She sends us to-do-lists each week to make sure we're on track and it just helps us align our priorities better.

My mom and I had an ocular slash spa day with Marge and BERNICE SORONGON (Another sweet childhood friend of Patrick who has been helping us with all our wedding props) last week and it dawned on me how blessed we are to have friends who are genuinely HAPPY TO SERVE us. You could be a bajillionaire and have all the money to splurge on the best suppliers--pero iba pa rin ang serbisyong totoo at galing sa tunay mong kaibigan. When your friends serve you out of love, it just makes the occasion even more meaningful. So thank you girls, I hope someday God will give me the chance to SERVE you in return. As long as it does not involve cooking, game ako dyan! Thank you also to ANNE and DRE GONZALES for helping us with the RSVPs and all your practical wedding tips!

The Catilos
The Photographers
Even before Patrick and I got engaged, kinontrata ko na 'tong dalawa. It's not as if they could say NO to us--Sheila is practically chained to ME because of our 20+ years of friendship! Biro mo, grade 3 palang tayo at alam ko ng magiging wedding photographer ka namin! Mwahahahaha (evil laugh). But kidding aside, even if they are our good friends--they have been very professional in dealing with us. We feel like we are just as important as their other VIP clients. Despite their success, they remain very approachable and hands on in dealing with each client as if it were their first. 

Jasmine Mendiola
The Makeup Artist
"Yung mukha mo, yun na yun. Wag natin baguhin." This is what I love about Jasmine. She makes me look like ME. A brighter, more polished version of myself. Of course, when we work together for advertising campaigns she's flexible enough to create different looks for me..but I'm confident that for our wedding, Patrick will be seeing the real slim shady walking down the aisle. Hehehe, kamukha ko na si Eminem! It also helps that she's an old friend who understands my disdain for thick and theatrical makeup, fresh and clean is what we're gunning for. Thanks also to Marie who will be doing my hurrrr!

Kaye Cunanan
The Caterer and Event Stylist
It's no secret that Kaye Cunanan serves GOOD FOOD: Honest, comfort food plated so delicately. As a true foodie, it was important for me to invest in a good caterer. We wanted our guests to be well fed, after all our wedding will be out of town so the least we could do is treat them to a decent meal after their long journey. And the woman has TASTE. This is definitely what sets her apart from all the other caterers. But on a more personal note, Kaye is a true sweetheart. Maswerte talaga ang kaibigan kong si Wesley! He hit the jackpot with this one. While we were plotting out the details for the wedding she said to me "Don't worry. I'm here to make sure you don't have to stress about a single thing." and that statement of assurance made me release a big sigh. Kaye, thank you for overextending yourself just to make all our little wedding ideas come to life. 

Swell Sweets
The Wedding Cake
Gel Colet of Swell Sweets used to be my boss. She was the executive producer of the morning show I used to be a part of. From boss, she has now been demoted to my friend! Haahaa! She gave up a very promising media career to fulfill her big dream of making cupcakes, cookies, birthday cakes and of course wedding cakes. I am truly proud of her and so excited to finally have a Swell Sweets wedding cake!!! Speaking of cake, our major dilemma: Chocolate, Vanilla, or Red Velvet! Ang hiraaaaaap!!!

Veejay Floresca
The Designer
You're thousands of miles away pursuing your big dream and yet you still have managed for Patrick's suit to be finished on time and for my rehearsal dress to be good as perfect as well. We're so blessed by your kindness and generosity!

Fozzy Castro-Dayrit and Printsonalities
The Invitations
Fozzy, Fozzy, Fozzy. Why do you just get me?!?! Hahaha! It's so funny that I turned into this woman's FAN virtually overnight. When she designed our invitation, she got it in ONE GO. No revisions, no take two. She just GOT IT. When she sent us the file, Patrick and I couldn't stop staring at it. We viewed it first through our iphone so you can imagine how funny we both looked, getting all mushy and sappy staring at the tiny screen.

To April and Lawrence of Printsonalities, thank you for doing such a great job with the printing! April was super thorough about the printing process. You guys are perfectionists!! I'm so happy with the quality of our invitations!

Vatel Manila
The first time I saw Dylan's work, I fell in love. I was never really particular about flowers before, it was not exactly in my list of priorities to be honest. But all that changed when I saw the Vatel Manila page on Facebook. BOOM! I turned into a sappy, girly-girl bride in an instant! All of a sudden I wanted to have pretty bouquets for me and my entourage! Vatel Manila is super in demand so I'm delighted they accommodated me despite their full bookings. Dylan thanks so much for making it so easy to coordinate with you via email! 

Sugar and Spice
The Candy Buffet
Carms and Mel of Sugar and Spice are as sweet as the candies they serve! When Mel sent me an email regarding their Candy Buffet services, I answered without a moment's hesitation. HELLO..Psycho  Sweet Tooth Person here. If you recall, they prepared a cute spread for Cecil's baby shower last month and so I can't wait to see what they will do for our wedding. Just thinking about it is making my mouth water with excitement! See you next month girls!

BC Fragrance
The Tokens
I love how I'm able to meet so many wonderful people online and discover that they're even nicer in person! Bernadette of BC Fragrance first tweeted me about their fragrances. After exploring their site, I was convinced that this would be perfect for our wedding. I'm itching to show you what she did for us but for now we shall keep it a secret, para naman may suspense ng konti :) 

Coco Cakes
Yummy Treats
Dear Michelle, thanks for being part of our little evening surprise. I won't spill the details here yet but you know how excited and grateful I am!!! See you next weekend for our baking day!:)

The Videographers
Ahhh Mayad. Their work amazes me EACH and EVERY time. If you want to fall in love, just visit their site. It's no wonder they are known internationally. I am so excited to have them on board!!! Thank you so much to the wonderfully talented team of MAYAD. Just like our other suppliers, Mayad is booked solid until 2030 (hahaha) and yet they've managed to squeeze our small wedding in next to all their high profile clients. Maraming Salamat!

Our Wedding Rings
To our dearest Anya and Tita Raquel, how can we even begin to thank you! You have made our wedding rings so special and unique. Thank you for taking care of my heirloom piece and for modernizing it. If my grandmother was still alive I'm sure she would be so happy to see her ring in a very contemporary style. It's always a pleasure working with you guys and I look forward to more happy memories with Sun Jewel!

The Shoes
As most of you know by now, I'm a big Suelas advocate. I'm almost like a used car sales man trying my best to convince everyone to switch to Suelas. It's not that I am even part owner of Suelas, I just really love their shoes! Since our wedding will be outdoors (with a very difficult terrain), I thought of giving Suelas to my female entourage just to make them comfortable on our big day. The special customized Suelas sandals are being made as we speak, I cant wait! My bridesmaids will look soooo puuurtyyy for sure!

The Blounge
Hair and Makeup for Entourage
Speaking of bridesmaids, we're doing sweet and romantic for their looks c/o The Blounge. Owner Rossell Taberna and I have been online friends for years... It's a long story! hehehe :) So to get a wedding gift from a "chat mate" was soooooo touching. She's painfully sweet and thoughtful! Thank you to the BLOUNGE team for sponsoring the hair and makeup of our entire female entourage! Sorry boys, I can sponsor your hair gel nalang! Hahaha :)

Such a long list of people to thank and I'm sure I will be adding to this list as our BIG Day draws nearer. For such a small wedding, we are so blessed to have all these wonderful people helping us! Thank you Lord for being an awesome God, granting us the desires of our little hearts and blessing us beyond our wildest dreams! 

SPArty Time

My Weekend Finds

Went shopping with the old man today at Ace Hardware (the tatay place to be) and snagged a lot of goodies. Check out my matchy-matchy cleaning tools! Simply disregard the darn red fire extinguisher that ruined the whole sleek in gray vibe I was gunning for! GRRR. Whoever chose RED as the official fire extinguisher color was obviously a "colorist"! How could you discriminate against other colors?!! Gray happens to be the color of smoke--which goes hand in hand with fire! I don't care if it's for safety reasons, I want a gray fire extinguisher!!! In other news, ANG GANDA NG WALIS KO NOH?!?!Sosyal!!!

My Ateneo Class

In a few weeks I will be saying goodbye to these kids as the semester comes to a close. As a teacher, it's always a time of mixed emotions when you see your students "move up"--you're excited to see them press forward but at the same time it hurts to let them go. I'm much more cool and composed now that I'm a college instructor. I used to cry like a baby back when I was teaching preschool! I realized it would totally freak them out if I started hugging and kissing these 19 year olds the same way I used to cuddle my toddlers back in the day. Hahaha! To my dear students, I am so proud of each and every one of you and I can't wait to see you all on TV!!! Oh and I have all your video assignments on file--which I just might release when you guys become big shots on TV! hahaha, I'm kidding (well not really!).

Our Amanda Loving Life TV Feature

Our Balesin feature finally aired last night on the Lifestyle Network!Woohoooo!!! Patrick had to edit 2 commercials over the weekend and was out working on a Sunday night so he asked me to record the episode for him---only problem is, we don't have a decent recorder at home.I was desperate and resorted to using my iphone! So forgive the LOW QUALITY and shaky footage you're about to see. For those who have been tweeting me about it..the replay will be in November but in the meantime, here's my low tech (pirated) version! Please don't laugh, I am not a TECHIE and I dont have steady hands! Hahaha :) 

For the Andy Warhol Fans

Just like most of you, I'm a BIG Andy Warhol fan. Some find him too eccentric and bizarre for their taste, but I have a thing for weird and that's why I'm a fan. Though I'll have to agree that some of his pieces are a bit too outrageous even for open-minded and modern people like me. Hehehe. I stumbled across an old blog post from the Apartment Therapy about Warhol and was so HAPPY to see these limited edition Warhol Campbell soup cans. TOTALLY COOL and a half right there!!! To all my friends in the US, please pick up a can for me from Target!
MOMA, New York 2008
Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam 2007

"We've all heard the phrase "life imitates art", or is it art imitates life? Either way, for Campbell's Soup's 50th Anniversary, they chose to turn the tables on art, taking Andy Warhol's famous Tomato Soup Can as their inspiration for a series of limited edition cans. There are four cans in the bright pop colors, available at Targets nationwide, all featuring their signature tomato soup — and perfect for a little family education."

A New Addition to the Jing Monis Family

When it comes to hair color, Jing Monis Salon is defintely my go-to-salon. They always manage to get  the right color that matches my skin tone. Whether I'm in the mood to go darker or lighter, my hair always looks polished and healthy after a color treatment. I dragged my friend and fresh grad, Kathleen, with me last week to Velvet. From ho-hum hair, she left the salon with a fresh new color perfect for her brand new job! Sometimes all you need is just a simple color change to perk you up! Velvet is the newest addition to the successful Jing Monis Salon empire. With it's plush and luxurious interiors, you'll definitely feel like a VIP (Very Important Patty) when you're having your hair and makeup done wonder it's the favorite of celebs like Solenn, Anne, Liz! Add Kathleen and Patty to that list of beautiful ladies--and KABLAM! hahaha!!!:)
