Workshops for the New Year and “New You”

Hi dearies. It’s the start of the year. Remember the little list of yours with goals and bucketlists? Does it include learning something new? Last year I dared myself to learn the things I wanted to learn previously but was not able to  and learn new things I never thought I would want to explore on learning. I guess thats the thing when you are in your 30s lol. You realize how time flies and just silently blurt out in your mind “how did i miss that chance and time in my teenage years and in my twenties?!” Lol! I am always a believer of new and continuous learnings. So last year I finally crossed out that goal that has been on my list for almost a decade now! I finally learned how to drive. Haha.Okay, not an expert yet! But, at least I was able to drive in Manila! That must be really something for me.

I have also joined #GetBlisstified workshops facilitated by Martine De Luna and Kimi Lu. I was just looking for a class to help me go back to blogging and this workshop gave me more than that!

So, now that I have been thinking of new things to learn and possible classes to take, I searched on the web and social media (Instagram, Facebook groups etc) on upcoming workshops and classes that might interest women or people with a dayjob or just simply people who like to learn something new like yours truly. Loves, friends, colleagues, and readers here is the list of interesting workshops I saw (most are from late January to February):


1.#GetBlisstified Workshop

    Learning never stops. Even if you think you have learned it already, we can still continue attending workshops / seminars / classes to enhance our skills. I wonder about that online class. I’ve been into calligraphy for almost two years and this is the first time that I’ve heard of a free online workshop 🙂

    Hey, I am glad you did Get Blisstified with Martine. Every blogger I talk to who wants to learn, I tell them to follow Martine. So, I am pretty sure it was eventful, insightful, and you walked away with awesome new learning. Congratulations.

      Yes Robert! I have been following Martine for the longest time. But, it was my first time to attend a workshop with her as one of the facilitators. It was worth it. 🙂

        Hey, that’s great to hear. Was this the workshop where Crystal Lin also attended? I referred her to Martine and I know she did, as well as another one, vision boarding.

    Never stop learning! I’m a bit stingy with workshops because after all there are tons of online workshops you can join for free. But then nothing beats the experience of meeting new people and learning hands-on from the experts, also it’s harder to miss since you paid for it! I get lazy a lot so the many tutorial videos I’ve bookmarked remain unvisited. XD Cheers to more learnings this 2017!

    Thank you for the schedules. I am particularly interested on the calligraphy workshop and thinking of joining the March 25 schedule. I attended a Calligraphy class once would be real helpful if I get a refresher to jumpstart that interest again. Thank you too for letting me know about the Tuesday free workshops online. Will certainly enlist myself.

    These are all great workshops to join. I am particularly interested with calligraphy and it is good to know that there is one happening in SM North! Hopefully I can join their February workshop. I will also check out the Letter Tuesday free online workshop! ^_^

    Joining workshops is also a must to continue learning and improve one’s self. I have just attended my very first workshop for this year last weekend. It is all about mindfulness for mums, which is very timely, as I plan to be more mindful and intentional in my actions this year.
