Favorite Blogs #1

Most of my nights are spent reading. I usually get in bed at 7:30pm and spend a few minutes bonding some more with my husband – talking about life, our dreams, our goals and aspirations. He often falls asleep before I do so I spend my time doing what I enjoy that is reading a book (I’m currently midway through The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R. Carey), reading marketing, business, and motivational articles, and reading blogs.

These are some of the Filipina blogs that I enjoy reading (and re-reading!) and who I can honestly say, could be my friends in real life (yes, really): 

minimumwagerjourney.blogspot.com – Grace writes about being a minimum wager, while still being able to maintain an emergency fund, owning stocks, and owning her own home plus another rental home. Nowadays, she shares her journey about doing all these and going back to school to become to become a teacher. I have probably read ALL her posts thrice as of date because I find her stories both inspirational and motivating.

freedomandselfworth.blogspot.com – Just realized that I don’t know what name to call her except for Mama Bee. But I’ve finished reading all her blog posts in all of 3 days – yes, all 87 blog entries. I devoured them like a good book. Talk about blog-post-marathon. But that’s because Bee posts about saving and saving her first million pesos (wow!) and moving on to two million, pursuing her entrepreneurship dreams and slowly, but surely succeeding, and being frugal in general, which we must admit, is easier said than done, is quite addicting. Her last entry was January of this year, and that doesn’t stop me from re-reading her posts, but I do hope she gets back to blogging soon.

thepinaymom.com – Gladys is a Filipina living in Nebraska, USA. You’d think that because she’s abroad, you won’t be able to relate to her. But it’s the entire opposite, she is very relatable and humble. Gladys writes about achieving a simple life raising her two beautiful daughters Marie and Olivia and being married to husband Tim. Someday being financially-free and living a fulfilling life is the theme of her posts and its a refreshing one. She makes wise financial decisions that we can all learn from. She is currently working on publishing her first book that I can’t wait to get my hands on.

lifeinmanila.com – Edelweiza’s website is one that I discovered from Grace’s. Reading her posts is like catching up on a good friend – written in honest and humble tones. I enjoy reading about how her week was spent especially with her husband, as well as about beautiful renovations on their home in Cavite, because I find them very relatable. I haven’t read all of her posts yet, but I’m really looking forward to all the stories from this gem of a blog.

mommyfleur.com – Fleur is one of my go-to blogs for a pick-me-up. Her posts are like your uplifting, hardworking, and funny best friend. She talks about being a supportive and loving mom to her beautiful daughter Anika, funny conversations with her husband Alvin (that we can relate to as married couples), and jokes about things in life that generally stresses the rest of us. It’s like finally talking to your best friend at the end of the day and having so much fun stories. I especially love the Sombrero Sitcom and her outfit posts. 

Do share your favorite blogs in the comments section. I would love to add more to my reading list.

About Mej

Hi! I'm Mej and that little guy is my dog, Mico. I used to write post mostly about beauty and a long time ago, just fashion, but that's going to change. So I could post more often, I've finally decided to post anything that catches my fancy - be it beauty, fashion, interior and facade design, married life and life in general, career, and even finance. It felt limiting to write just up to three topics - beauty, travel, and health, especially now that I don't feel as passionate writing just about those three things. But that's all in the past now. Anyway, that's it for now. See you in my posts!

  1. So happy you’re back. I read almost all of these blogs regularly.

    Medyo fail pa din ako sa shopping at times pero, I’ve improved so much na. Haha!

    I’ll try to blog about my personal finance journey sa scatterbraintures (+ other projects) kaya I decided to move beauty to bsfreebeauty na lang. Pero slow blogging lang.

    1. Siguro nagimprove lang ako lately sa shopping kasi wala na ako pangshopping tulad ng dati 😅 So kahit gusto ko, wala talaga haha!
      Nakakatuwa magbasa ng personal finance blogs. This year ko lang kasi nadiscover na madami din pala mga local. Dati mga foreign finance blogs binabasa ko pero hindi ako makarelate sa iba like 401k nila.
      Magpost na nga din ako ng personal finance pero parang weird pala (nagttry na kasi ako), pero hindi ako makapagsabi ng exact figures dahil nakaplaster ang name and face ko. haha! now i understand why yun iba, anonymously nagbblog.

  2. Thank you so much Mej for your kind words. I appreciate it for featuring my blog. Right now, I am pursuing some of my other dreams – Learning crochet and Short Story Writing, and will return to my Personal Finance Topics Blog the soonest. I aim to finish a simple shrug crochet and the long overdue 3 short stories I was supposed to write back in 2015 (before the story fades in my memory) but haven’t got the chance to. Cheers and happy Tuesday! 🙂

    1. Wow I’m glad to hear you’re pursuing your other dreams Bee! I haven’t started reading your short story, but will definitely do so this week. Can’t wait to see your progress on your shrug crochet. Maybe on instagram? Good luck in pursuing your dreams and looking forward to your future posts 🙂

  3. Na-flatter naman ako napasama ako sa favorite blogs mo at na-appreciate mo ang mga stories ko kahit na medyo iba sa lifestyle mo. Thank you ulit sis and God Bless.

    PS. If there’s one thing na nag caught ng attention ko aside from your beautiful house & condo is your dog,….super cutee talaga, one of my frustrations , di kasi pedeng mag-alaga ng aso sa amin e.

    1. Wow thank you sis Grace 🙂 Dati din kasi bawal ako magalaga ng aso (sa condo), kaya nun nagrent na ng bahay na pwede ang aso, go nako. Sobrang lambing pa nya, lagi lang siya nakasunod sa akin and naglalambing kaya nakakatuwa din talaga.
      I love your blog sis. Pag may chance pa nga, babasahin ko ulit lahat ng posts mo. Di ako nagsasawa mainspire sa posts mo. Hope you keep on writing 🙂
