St. Peter Life Plan: Is it Worth the Investment?

Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Five years ago my mother decided to invest in a memorial plan for her and my father. She bought  two Life Plan with Money Back worth almost 100,000pesos each and payable for five years. Just last month, my mom announced that she's done paying for the plans and now she's investing with the memorial lot.

Why am I sharing this information to you?

You know, I am very proud and very thankful of the parents that God blessed me to have. Both my parents are hard-working and goal-oriented. They were very courageous in this memorial investment plan with St. Peter for they don't want us (me and my siblings) to worry about the future.

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

Life after college can be very daunting for new graduates. I remember how scary I felt the day after my I received my diploma. I wonder what will happen to me whether I'll pursue writing since I am a BS Journalism graduate or I will stay focused on my hosting career. I'm sure you've read this dilemma on My Life, My Job, MyPassion and 6 Things that Made Me Successful post.

Fast forward to today, I believe I have conquered a lot of my what if's in life.I have a job, I created multiple streams of income and I continue to develop my talents and skills.

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

It's been a long time since I updated you guys on my FAMI investments so I thought it is just ideal to create a quick post. I am still part of the FAMI investors and just before June ends I received an invitation to join the 2015 FAMI Annual Shareholder's Meeting. Sadly, I wasn't able to attend because I already have an scheduled event.

Aside from the Annual Shareholder's Meeting,  I also recently found out that FAMI had an overhaul of their Investor's Portal. And this is post is a special guide I created on the new FAMI Portal.

Finding the Right Wedding Dress for Your Body Type Now

Monday, July 6, 2015
Hello there! I know it took me almost two weeks to update this blog. I’ve been very  busy the whole June and I couldn’t find any time writing for my blogs. Both SavingsPinay and IzzaGlino had suffered due to the unexpected projects that came to me. So now I’m back (from outer space!!!) and ready to bring you new contents. Thank you so much for staying in this humbl blog of mine and showering your support though I missed updating.

Today’s post is a continuation of my last blog series. If you may remember I launched a Wedding Series for the month of June and I was very surprised with the support that the particular blog series received. This post is my answer to a particular question asked by an avid reader of SavingsPinay sent via Facebook. The question goes like this, “Ms. Izza, I’ve read your Wedding Series and I am on my preparation for my December wedding. Ask ko lang kung anu yung best way para makapili ka ng wedding dress?"
