Beautiful Sunday # 325 - Life Lately and a Book Giveaway

Having a constant supply of freelance works has always been in my wish list every year. A few more months before 2018 ends, I'd like to believe that my wish was granted.The first quarter of 2018 gave me a great start. I had cooperative clients that led to successful projects. All the work also arrived in perfect timing. As soon as I wrap up one project, inquiries for another job started to come in.  The streak of freelance works even extended on the summer months. Everything slowed down when I started to have classes.

Fast forward to September, the last quarter of the year usually marks my lean period. Much to my surprise, I received a number of proposals .... I mean project proposals, not the proposal my mother wanted for me. Hahahaha The work involved is manageable, except that everything came at the same time. While I'm grateful for these opportunities, much of me feels disorganised, overwhelmed and worried. There's just too much on my plate these days. The next weekends will definitely be different. I have to forgo those slow, quiet and relaxing afternoons. This leads me, I'll also be away from this blog on the next weeks. To compensate my absence (as if my absence is felt hahahaha), I'm leaving a book giveaway for my Philippine based readers.

Get a chance to win this book


I'm giving away  a copy of The Little Book of POOH-isms, an original publication of Disney Press.

All About Yves by Catherine Ormen : The Life Story of Yves Saint Laurent



Admittedly, I have limited knowledge about Yves Saint Laurent (YSL). I'm more familiar with the brand and the popular product lines such as Tribute Sandals, Cabas Bag and one of my dream bags, the Sac de Jour. But YSL or Yves Henri Donat Mathieu-Saint-Laurent as a haute couture is a stranger to me. The most I can remember about him was being bold enough to create designs that allowed women to wear comfortable tuxedos.
