Make It Blissful with Luminisce, An Intimate Christmas Gathering of Blissmakers

One of the most memorable and prettiest blog gatherings I attend year after year, is the one with my Make It Blissful (MIB) family, the Blissmakers.  I always look forward to attending an MIB event, because it's guaranteed fun, inspiring, pretty, positive, and joyful.

Last month, during the busiest days of my life, the Blissmakers gathered for an event in partnership with Luminisce.  I almost didn't make it, but I'm glad my supportive husband, pushed all our schedule for that day, to a day earlier so that I could attend.  Our schedule was crazy during those days because of our wedding preparations.  The event happened exactly a week before the wedding.

The MIB with Luminisce event was held at Le Jardin Manila, a gorgeous French-inspired place made even prettier by Steph and Lady of Boqueria Lifestyle Market.
Our fellow Blissmaker Audrey of with her dear friend Dra. Kaycee Reyes of Luminisce, organized an intimate lunch gathering exclusive for the Blissmakers.  All the beautiful ladies in the group shared the same passion and interests in helping other women bring out the best in each other.  This was evident when each of us shared a little thing or two about each other before lunch was served.

 Dra. Kaycee shared her Luminisce journey, both her ups and downs.  Just like any women in the group, she was very sincere, warm, and inspiring.  Her mission as a dermatologist and owner of Luminisce is to bring out not only the outer, but the inner beauty of her patients through sheer hardwork, determination, and prayers.
It was the first time I also revealed about my pregnancy to a group outside my family.  I'm happy they are the first group that I shared this beautiful news to.  I was so touched by each of the ladies' words of encouragement, congratulations, and well wishes.  I'm just blessed to be part of this group.  I love my Blissmakers family.

I was pretty overwhelmed with the half-day event for the Blissmakers that day.  It was a beautiful and positive gathering and I wouldn't have it any other way.  I only feel this sincerity and feeling of trust with this group of women I belong to.  Words aren't enough to express how thankful I am and how memorable the event was, so let these photos say it for me:

After our fruitful lunch, Audrey and Dra. Kayce surprised us with a well-curated giant Bliss Box which contained so many wonderful gifts from sponsors.  Each of the Blissmakers got a box and we were pretty overwhelmed with what's inside.

We immediately took photos of the Bliss box contents.  It was a lot!
Each of us also had a chance to have a hair and face make-over for our individual photo session.  I wish I had my hair professionally done too.  But the schedule didn't permit me to.  But the photos came out great.  These were taken by Celwyn Abosolo.
The Luminisce Facial Treatment
The first half of our year-ender event was already too much to handle (too much prettiness, too much good vibes, too much good food, too much fun, too much inspiring), but we were just preparing for the icing on the cake!  Dra. Kaycee brought us to her beautiful and blissful clinic to treat each of us of our well-deserved facial.  Before the treatment we had an individual consultation with Dra. Kaycee to get to know our skin conditions,concerns and needs.  Each treatment was customized based on the need of our skin.

It was so timely for me, because my wedding was just a week away.  So for family and friends who noticed my clear skin a few days before and during the wedding, now you know why.

Every patient will surely feel like a queen or a princess in Luminisce clinic.
Some tea and pastries were offered before we head to our treatment rooms.
Had a pregnancy-safe gentle facial massage and treatment
which made my skin smooth and glow.
Glowing and well-pampered skin, ready for photo even without make-up! :)  Thanks Luminisce!

The Bliss Box
The Bliss Box was coined by the Main Blissmaker, Martine de Luna of during her very first Blissmakerie event.  It's a box filled with Martine's partner brands which reflect the very personality of Make It Blissful.  Audrey, together with her dear friend Dra. Kaycee, carefully created the Bliss Box for all of us.  Each of the brands has inspiring stories to tell and that's what makes the box blissful indeed.  And to receive so many gifts from different brands is truly a blessing.

Thank you Audrey and Dra. Kaycee for curating the Bliss Box.  Here are the contents:
