Meet Em

hello island mama meet em smith

Hello! Thank you for visiting my blog! I love to share makeup tutorials, beauty tips, DIY art and crafts, design, about my family, and other fun and interesting topics. If you are new to my blog, I’d love for you to get to know me better! :) Here are a few things about me:

I am originally from the Philippines, where I was raised on a small island called Marinduque.

I love to create and explore with art and design, which led to me to get my bachelor’s degree in fine arts. Here is an old oil painting of mine, depicting poverty in the Philippines.

I am married to Brent, a good Christian man and child psychologist. We’ve been married for 6 years now.

We have three cute little boys!! They are precious!

Before I entered motherhood and became a stay-at-home mom, I worked full-time as a freelance makeup artist for weddings, photoshoots, etc. I still accept freelance work, so please contact me with any questions and/or about pricing. I’d love to hear from you! You can check out my makeup portfolio here.

I was also a full-time graphic designer for a clothing boutique. Here’s my design portfolio + painting works if you are interested in seeing them.

 

Other random facts:

I became a Christian, accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and was baptized in 2011. More of my thoughts about my faith here.

I’m new to reading the Bible. I can’t live without it, especially in this crazy life of being a mom!

I love spicy food – Pad Thai and Som Tum!

I love Yakult and Hello Panda.

I love to cook and bake. Favorite foods I like to make include empanada and egg rolls (lumpia)

I love to organize and make things clean (unless I’m very tired from keeping up with my boys haha!)

I love to shop in thrift stores! Most of my clothes are from there.
