My September Free Promo

For those who still does not know, I am an independent distributor of Nu Skin products. I enjoy being one because it adds extra to my savings.

My favorite product and a very hot seller one is the AP24 Fluoride Whitening Toothpaste. For my clients in the UAE, I am offering a FREE BAMBOO toothbrush (which usually costs $9!). I can only offer the free product in the UAE for now and hopefully, I will eventually offer the same promo to my other clients worldwide.

So, start ordering and get your Bamboo toothbrush with your AP24 toothpaste now! Just message me at mommaglama at yahoo dot com to order. Shipping cost has been reduced to AED 15 for all of UAE so take advantage of that great saving!

Going Back To My Arts

I’ve been sidetracked for a while because of my new small biz (Nu Skin distributor) and I have given it most of my time the past months. Right now, I am just going back to my arts to practice and produce more illustrations and digital designs I can eventually offer to sell someday.

I am still not very good with Photoshop and Illustrator. However, I have sen major improvements in my skills because I can directly illustrate on AI (Adobe Illustrator) without using any of my penciled sketches as guide. Though my digital drawings are very amateurish and simple. One thing I can say about my work is that – they are definitely hand drawn.

I am building my stocks right now so I can offer some freebies every Friday for you to download and print or do whatever you wish. I guess, the only thing I would request from you is that, don’t claim the illustrations as your own. I think that is fairly simple and right thing to do.

Most of the stuff I will put in my Friday Freebies page are my own graphics that you can use to make stickers, name tags, bookmarks, labels, etc. I hope you will like them.

So, watch out for my Friday Freebies! It will come soon… Not very soon, but SOON!

Doing Things That Makes Me Happy

I have always believed that mantra. That is why I try my best to do things that makes me happy even if other people don’t understand why. I don’t have to make them understand but all I want is for people to have an open mind why others do the things that they do, especially when running after a dream.

I haven’t always have it easy. I have to work hard for something. I don’t get stuff easy in life. It is always a struggle. Sometimes, I honestly want to give up. However, I think about the reason why I have begun in the first place – it’s because, I had a dream, and I am still dreaming up to now.

Part of doing the things that makes me happy is also sacrificing some time spent for nonsense stuff like going to the malls, socializing, etc. I don’t want to shortchange my happiness by stealing few moments out of them. That is why, my weekends are always booked to the brim with activities that calms my nerves, quiets my mind, and soothes my soul.

Right now, I have been busy with many things like my arts, my blogging, and my entrepreneurial goal. I have some frustrations too but the impetus to succeed, and to enjoy life now keeps me going. I just want to chase my dreams while I can because tomorrow may be too late. If I can do it now, why not? So, I’ll be doing things that makes me happy. And if I flood my blogs, and my social media channels with stuff that feeds my soul, so be it. 🙂

My First Attempt To Digitalize My Brush Lettering Art

I must have read tons and tons of resources for how to digitalize your art or hand lettering. I even subscribed to a lot of YouTube channels for the tutorials. The information out there is overwhelming and they seem to look very easy until you try it hands on.

Well, it took me several hours to complete the process few weeks ago. It is a rough digital attempt but I am happy of the outcome. I know there are still plenty of rooms for improvement but they say, you wouldn’t really know something and wouldn’t get accustomed until you do it. More practice and more watching of tutorials to get the tips and tricks and apply them all later on.

This is the brush lettering on my pad.

I just added the flourishes for effect.

 

I got the quote from the internet. I love it a lot because I know a lot of “gits” around who could use some manners. This is for them, a constant reminder to be respectful.

Well, I am still happy with how the outcome looked like. I even felt I didn’t follow the process correctly. The process is still a bit complex but with more practice, I am pretty sure I will be able to make more of these in the future that I can offer for free download or even sell on my future creative studio. Wish me luck!

Taking the Opportunity

They said, “Opportunity knocks only once.” In my case, it had knocked many times before but I kept mum about opening the door. I am either scared or I just don’t have faith as big as a mountain. Either way, I have let many opportunities pass only to regret later in my life.

There are opportunities that I have gladly accepted but I stirred my boat wrongly. I didn’t give much thought about them and was half-heartedly committing only because they became more of an obligation than something I could enjoy with.

I even prayed for opportunities to come my way. I answered some but then again, I was not putting my effort. I was rushing. I was impatient. I wanted to see results right away.

This time, the opportunity came when I least expected it. My friend actually approached me to review the products she is offering because I am a blogger and I do product reviews as well. So I said yes. Then I asked questions about the products, she gave me information about them and next thing I know it, I am a part of her team. Yes. It was a lengthy conversation about beauty and skin care products that got me hooked and I am glad that I did.

The thing is, I am a very skeptical person. I am very analytical, and I must understand every detail of something before I can put my personal stamp on it. In this case, I have heard of the brand before. I was still young when I heard of it. And because then, the brand seemed so elusive and exclusive, I didn’t give much thought about it. Until I became a part of the same brand I tried avoiding. Again, I am glad I signed up. I am still learning the ropes because I am just 3 weeks old in the company but I know one day, I can become a leader here. I would love that!

You see, opportunities like this one comes rarely in your lifetime. You either let it pass or you grab it by the horns. I have let this pass before and it came back to me unexpectedly. I did pray for God’s guidance and providence to lead me to a good opportunity where I can see myself, my family, my friends, and my new found teammates grow. And if there’s one thing I have learned about this whole process is to take the opportunities that come your ways as blessings. Not everyone has been given that honor to respond to a calling, no matter what that is.

It’s too early to say what will happen. I am just being very hopeful and positive. I feel I deserve this break after what I have been through. I am also praying that I will continue to enjoy this new endeavor for a long, long time.

Thanks to Nu Skin for giving me something to hope for. I pray that all my dreams will come true with your help.

The road to success is still long, and far. But I know someday, I will surely get there.
