Blissmakers Pictorial at La Creperie New Manila, QC

When asked what my purpose is for blogging, I always answer this sincerely: To Inspire and Empowe...

When asked what my purpose is for blogging, I always answer this sincerely: To Inspire and Empower Women and Moms to live a quality of life for themselves and their families.  Whenever I would talk about my blog to other people who are curious about how I started and why do I persevere, I always find myself teary-eyed and having goosebumps each time I passionately share what's my purpose and what's in my heart.

This sense of fulfillment filling my heart took a notch higher when I was invited by my blog coach Martine De Luna of Make It Blissful to be part of her Manila-based (because the scope is global) contributors called the Blissmakers.

To belong to a group of inspiring women who share the same purpose of bliss-finding and making each moment of her life meaningful, is an honor.  It could even be said that more than just the blogging side of it, it has a big impact to my life's purpose.

Last April 6, we had a pictorial at La Creperie, New Manila, Quezon City.   Just a little about La Creperie...  it's a small and dainty French-inspired creperie which serves nothing less than delectable (and pretty like a work of art) crepes and coffee.  It's tucked in one of the quietest  streets in New Manila where customers who want the feeling of privacy, could dine comfortably there.  Its ambiance is far from intimidating and being there felt like I was transported to Paris' busy cafes by the street enjoying the view of Eiffel Tower.   

Here are some shots of the homey, cozy and intentionally chic interiors which make an old Pariesienne soul glad to be there.  First batch of photos are taken from its second floor where we had our pictorial.
You'll see these at the ground floor of La Creperie in New Manila, QC
The food... Aaah, heaven for me because I love crepes.   I got (I always do) the Nuttela Peach Dessert Crepe.  But of course they have a lot more crepes in their menu. 
Going back to the Blissmakers Tea Time pictorial done wonderfully by Shutter Panda Photography, we were made to pose for solo shots.  Everybody was in their best pastel colored clothes (the blog colors of Martine De Luna) and I believe any woman in pastel color blushes prettily!  First here are a few of BTS shots with my lovely co-contributors:
