The Formula To Happiness is Just Simple

“Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own.” 
- Robert A. Heinlein, A Stranger To A Stranger Land

 Can you allow me to be a little cheesy? :D The last 4 years of my life have been VERY blessed, and the blessings are still pouring continuously and tremendously: I have access to almost all events, receive rewards on a daily basis, and effortlessly find people who are willing to work with my blog. I don't mean to brag-I'm just reminding myself how wonderful hard work is, and that it is damn possible to live the life you've always wanted.

Right now, I couldn't think of anything else to ask for. Sure, I have bigger dreams, but for the most part of my life right now, I feel contented. :) Now it's my turn to share. I made it a point in my blogging career to always hold grand contests for my readers not only as a way of thanksgiving, but also as a way of letting them experience some of the best beauty products and services I have experienced. :) I may not have been able to accommodate my 3,000++ readers, but at least, I have touched 12. I have met with the 10 winners of my 4th anniversary contest (the 2 are located in Visayas and Mindanao) just recently to hand out their prizes, and for a little chit chat! :)

Since I am so inspired by the movie Pay It Forward, I told them before parting ways to share what they got! :)

When you give, you make others happy. And when you make others happy, you become happy as well-that's just the simple, golden formula to finding real happiness. :)

14 Lovely Thoughts

  2. Hi Ms. Martha,

    I am a loyal follower of local beauty blogs (a lot of them actually) for some time now but never really got around to trying anything because well, they are almost always beyond my beauty budget. Not even those spend versus save posts speak to me. If it's not too much to ask, can you review dirt cheap products found in watsons or mercury drug?

  3. Thank you so much for having this giveaway Miss Martha! Besides receiving these awesome loot, what made me happy most was finally meeting you! (although, nakaka-speechless, hehehe) My sisters and my mom were also happy because I shared some of it to them. Thanks again! :) More power to your blog!
