Shen on Print (My own column in ZenHealth Magazine)


Positive thinking and positive outlook in life will actually get you somewhere...

I have always wanted to work for a magazine. But when I did I had to give it up due to a more pressing family matters (both personal and business). I really thought that was the end of it...

When I met Chuchie Ledesma of ZenHealth Magazine in an event, I secretly hoped that I still had the same job as hers. She was nice and cool to talk to that I wanted to exchange information with her.

I was surprised when she contacted me for a write-up... Then, she contacted me to offer a column!!

It has been my dream since I was a little to girl to write. The hunger for words started when I began reading Sweet Valley High books, then I moved to more mature reads like romance novels and philosophical books. I devoured magazines that my aunt sent me like it was food. Then I moved to reading Filipino magazines, from Women Today to Cosmopolitan to Lifestyle sections of the newspaper.

When I was in high school, I joined my school newspaper to which I was assigned features and developmental communications. I even made my own magazine using a scrapbook one summer. But in college, I began to digress in writing and focused on a more pressing need which was to ready myself in law school.

But we all know that that can't work out anymore... So, I'm quite happy that I have blogging to keep everything happy and bright! With a life without someone to guide you, this is in one thing that keeps me focused on my goals...

And to have your name printed in paper truly is an accomplishment a yearning writer wishes to achieve. When I first saw my name printed in Sense and Style Magazine, I was ecstatic. But to have your own column, it is every blogger's dream.. at least it is for me. I have always imagined this day would come but I was never really sure.

My very first article with ZenHealth: Makeup with SPF: Does it really Work?
Name of my column is Beauty Made Easy (Thanks to Chuchie for this!)

My column did not only come with my name printed on it but with a picture and a blurb about me. Yey!

Thank you, ZenHealth and its wonderful people, for trusting my knowledge in beauty. I will endeavor to give you my best in every article you assign me. :) The same as I do in every post I make in this blog.

Readers, please grab this copy of ZenHealth to read if Makeup with sunscreen protection really works and to lead you to a healthier lifestyle. In the April-May issue, I will be discussing the perks of Mineral Makeup. Learn more about the healthy makeup and those that I recommend. There will be more topics about mineral makeup there by the talented writers of ZenHealth.

much love,
