It’s a Wrap! | January & February 2021

WHOA. In a snap of a finger, just like that, February is over and we are 2 out of 12 for 2021! That was fast.

wedding plans

I had great January, to say the least. It was this month that we started to make initial plans for our wedding which is happening on September this year. We attended meetings with our wedding planners and coordinators, hotel and venue suppliers, etc. It’s both scary and exciting but I’m definitely loving every bit of the process despite the stress here and there. I was initially comforted by the fact that we have so much time in our hands and still so much room to plan, but as January ended *just like that* in a zoom, I now can’t help but feel a tiny bit of panic! But kalma. We’ll be okay. Not much progress in February, just met up with our wedding host which pretty much hyped us all the more!


Books I read

I had a pretty successful January when it comes to reading, but February was a totally different story. It was definitely a meh reading month.

I started reading the ever famous Winston Brothers by Penny Reid this year and boy was I glad I did! Was able to finish the first three books in the series through my audiobook subscription on Scribd and needless to say, the hype over this series is real. Reading The Midnight Library was something new for me, as I don’t usually read a lot of fantasy fiction. Finally, a re-read of A Courts of Thorns and Roses was definitely a good highlight of my month!

Like I said, February wasn’t as productive but I’m happy to report that these two books are just as great as the first ones in the series!


LIFE IN GENERAL

It’s a pretty amazing first two months of the year, I must say. I started a business called Kalm Essentials, which is a hanging diffuser business and it kinda kicked off really well. We started to cater not just to family and friends, but also to other parts of Batangas and Laguna area because of our growing number of resellers. I also started investing in a business called Batangas Premium Longganisa. If you’re from the Philippines, you know how big a part longganisa plays not just in a Filipino breakfast but even for lunch and dinners! I was actually just a consumer of the brand before but, and I know will really sound biased, it was soooo good I just had to invest in it!


So that’s my January and February so far! Oh and one last good news, I almost forgot! I got a DOT COM!!! I am now merging my book blog and my personal blog and that’s probably the reason why you’re seeing this somewhat personal life update post if you’re coming from the bookish community, and this bookish post if you’re coming from the ~general blog sphere~.

Have a lovely month ahead!
