June, and Lovin' It.

The first day of June.
Can you believe that? We're halfway through 2012!
And it's already my favorite month!

Aside from December (because almost everybody loves this month, anyway), June happens to be my favorite time of the year. And why, you ask?

It's because I'm a June bride.

This year, we're celebrating - on the same day - our ninth anniversary as a couple and our fourth anniversary as husband and wife. We made it a point to get married on our fifth anniversary, because we're cool like that. And because it'll be easier for my forgetful husband to remember when to buy lavish gifts. LOL.

Today also marks the sixth month since my blogging comeback, and it's been a wonderful journey for me ever since. I feel really blessed to have come across many great bloggers and writers, to have found nurturing and tight-knit blogging communities, to have worked with amazing and generous sponsors, and to have done a handful of lucrative writing gigs here and there. I am most thankful to the people who read my blog and follow my social media handles. Getting my Alexa stats to where it is right now wouldn't be possible without them.

The past two weeks had been no exception - swamped with blog work and busy as usual. Busier, actually, ever since I became an associate writer for But hey, I'm not complaining. I'm loving every second of what I'm doing right now, because I can still be a 24/7 mom while I'm at it.

Right now I'm really having the time of my life doing product reviews. And it's not just because I get free stuff along the way. It's more of the affirmation of my capability as a writer and my credibility as a blogger whenever brands or companies pitch me for a review. I've been receiving a bunch of neat stuff (some of them eco-friendly, too!) - thanks to the generosity and benevolence of my dear sponsors.

Almay + NYC + Wet n Wild from Smart Shopper.

EcoTools Travel Brush Set from Eazy Fashion.

Mineral Powder Foundation from Human Nature, BB cream samples from BHappyWithMe.

All-natural Liquid Detergent + Bottle Cleanser from DNee Baby Philippines.
And I have yet to post my reviews / features about them. Hopefully, I'll finish everything before my next giveaway opens.

So far I've got my bases covered all the way until July. Meaning, all my upcoming giveaway events already have their respective sponsors. And now, I'm actually organizing my blog activities for August all the way to the end of the year.

I'm quite excited for December, truth be told. Because by then, I'd be celebrating not only my birthday, but also the first anniversary of The Rebel Sweetheart. And yes, it is imperative that I throw a huge giveaway in commemoration of.

Who knows, I might even do some sort of prelude giveaway for Yue's fourth birthday come November. :)

Congratulations on your anniv and the gig. Big Kpop fan myself! I admire you for being so organized, whew! I think I need a whole lot of yoga just to be able to have a clear mind and plan the way you do! Kudos Mommy!

Happy Anniversary .. we are celebrating our 11th Anniversary this June.

Congrads on your bloggy comeback.


Congrats on your anniversary!! :)

I started blogging as the same month as my anniversary, so i will be celebrating two anniversaries come August! :)

I love June, because it means our weather will FINALLY start getting warm! We live in a colder climate here where it usually stays cold (I'm talking 40-50 degree weather) until the beginning of June and then BOOM..70-80 degrees. :) So..I love June! lol.

Wishing you a very happy anniversary!! And how cool that you have the associate writer job for --- :)


Mich of Mich Eats and Shops said...

Happy anniversary to you soon!!! :D I can only wish that my boyfriend and I will eventually get married and have a long, loving relationship like yours. :)

You're making me think that maybe I should just quit my current job (which I'm no longer enjoying) and just be a free lance writer. I think that would be a better idea :P

You're such a cool June bride! I'm forgetful,too, so I decided that my wedding falls on the same day I answered (or vise versa!) my hubby, Sept. 11.

Hope you can visit me too at:
