#1– Been so happy to receive the book Big Magic from Kokobear – one of his gifts for me in 2018. #2 – It has been inspiring and power and I can’t stress it enough that I so so love this book.  #3 – Then aside from my favorite scents, I discovered this clear bottle from BBW Lovely Dreamer and found it really good. #4 – With the breakthrough and challenges I have this year, I feel that Unfinished is for me and for all who believed that God has a great plan for all of us. #5 – I love mint ever since and I always check it our in the herbs section whenever we’re in the supermarket. Love to use it for tea and a couple of leaves for salads. #6 – Happier is a staple since 2017, then Big Lessons too. While Marie Forleo is a favorite this year because I have been thinking of being a business woman in my own creative space at The Creative Passport. #7 – Marie Forleo is my favorite website at the moment because of her very good content on business, productivity, creativity and more. So I’m literally a “tambay” (stay-in) lol. #8 – Been enjoying Carousell where I created #ShopJMKayne to sell my pre-loved books and other stuffs also I’m currently enjoying and learning snapseed – a picture editor. :) #9 – Having Grey my first ever nephew is a fave moment. It’s amazing how a baby can lighten up and make a home really homey that you’d love to go home even if his not my baby but it feels great to love such an angel. <3 #10 – Going back to Dubai is an amazing moment of course. I missed Kokobear and the place. #11 – Green forever! Green shades and green all the way! hahaha #12 – In love and eyes twinkling with the word #CREATE and creativity! #13 – Alex Gonzaga gives a good laugh. Aileen Xu of Lavendaire is just inspiring :) . #14 – Soft bones my fave and Kokobear’s fave too. Also a Sunday family meal. My standard breakfast is the one listed above. To have an easy move, bibimbap always a fun option. #15 – I love this lipstick, got it from Philippines and brought here in the Dubai. Find it natural looking and shining shimmering splendid at times.. heheh #16 – I always love creating presentations in powerpoint and sometime edit some photos from there. Tired spreadsheets too but still find PPT easy to navigate and do the things I want to work and tweak on. 

So that’s it. I will try to make another list for 2019 Maybe monthly? Well, I’ll look on it.
