You’ll know the current year is coming to a close when your start to hear Christmas songs, see Christmas decorations set up, and when planners for the next year are launched!
Held in the East Wing of EDSA Shangri-la Plaza, Viviamo’s launch for 2018 planners, journals, and new paper products was held for 2 fulfilling days (October 21-22); providing a venue towards enjoyable activities for loyal Bellas and newbies alike.
The theme was Dare to Be You, a movement for Bellas to be appreciative and confident about themselves, as they truly have a lot to offer the world. BDJ have been supporting personal development and women empowerment, and the theme snugly fits to their principles and what they aim for. <Proud Bella here!> Proceeds of the launch would be donated to charity.
Talks were centered to cater goals under aspects we can all relate to – Planner, Finance, Fashion, Fitness, Minimalist, Travel, Life, and Health! Workshops for the creatives were also fun and sulit – watercolor, calligraphy, doodling, dream catcher, and designing your planner spreads. Even I was confused on what to attend. I wanted to try a lot! Since I’m leaning towards minimalist goals, I took on Bullet Journaling, Declutter, and Strengths-Driven talks. Meanwhile, I took the watercolor workshop to improve what I started this year.
|Ms. Celine Sugay from The OneCORE|
Ms. Celine Sugay, a life coach at The OneCORE, discussed goal setting in a different perspective: through the MICK (Motivation, Inspiration, Cheer, and Kindness). She said that if the MICK is low, we should not make big decisions as it might get compromised. She suggested to improve the MICK first, one level at a time, to eventually get the maximum benefits of the system in decision making. The MICK can be assessed as frequent as everyday.

|Talk with Ms. Ayessa Aya of Declutter MNL|
Ms. Ayessa Aya, a diplomat’s wife, got into the decluttering business because of her personal experience of moving regularly from one country to another. She shares sympathy for expats who experience the same difficulty, and helps them in selling their items and helping them move on faster from any emotional attachments to the things they let go of.
Ms. Tin Santos, a watercolor and calligraphy artist, taught the basic brush techniques which participants applied for their own artwork. She handled the class well, achieving the balance of giving encouragement and affirmation, as well as suggestions and answers to queries. She also gave us Bella participants a special gift – a card with a picture of her work! The 90-minute workshop was indeed worth it! <3

In addition, Goldilocks sponsored a decorate your cake workshop, where participants can take home the cake they decorated! Talk about a sweet treat!
A pop up creative workshop was also held for those who purchased the Inspired Journal.

Crafters Market and BDJ Selling and Customization
Meanwhile, the suppliers in the Crafters Market offered a wide array of kawaii stickers, pens, watercolor, calligraphy kits, clips, and other related items. It was a haven for journaling and creatives! I got myself a lot of journaling trinkets from this area! <for the raffle. *wink*>
