Now, she is a wife, mother, and freelance writer, blogging coach, and digital media consultant.
To learn more about Martine, we visited the home that she shares with her husband and children. Here are the 10 things that she loves in her home and beyond:
“Throw pillows! They’re inexpensive, useful, easy to change, and fun.”
Find similar pillow cases at H&M Home, Robinsons Magnolia.
“I like lavender, rosemary, and citrus scents because they smell so fresh and clean—a perfect contrast to the often sticky, hot, muggy weather we get in Manila! I love Urban Pantry’s home scent in Olive & Rosemary.”
Visit Urban Pantry at Unit 115C Greenhills Promenade 3, Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan City.
"I keep brown paper bags from the grocery store and use them as wrapping paper or as craft materials for my son’s arts & crafts projects.”
“My Osterizer! I am a smoothie junkie.”
Available at leading appliance stores.
“A fruit smoothie! I always keep frozen fruits and yogurts in the fridge for a quick treat. Saves me so much money because I can make good ones at home!”
“My bedroom. I like to sleep as much as I can! It’s also so refreshing because of the ample sunlight and white walls.”
“Room spray, because I am all about setting the ambiance for a good night’s sleep. I need it as a work-at-home mom!”
“I’m into light shades of blush, grays, and light wood finishes. I just like the way they make any place feel cool and clean.”
Try Light Laurels, Soft Marion, and Gray Drops, all from Nippon Paint.
“I’m simple, so local, drive-able destinations like La Union or Tagaytay are my family’s usual travel destinations. If I could go back to Florence, Italy, I would!”

“I enjoy Bloesem Living for its focus on handmade and minimalist, Scandinavian design. But my favorite home design book from my small stash is Kate Spade’s Things I Love.”
Kate Spade’s Things I Love is available at Fully Booked.
