Last October 21, BDJ’s very first launch weekend was held at EDSA Shangri-la Mall East Wing. It was an empowering event featuring different #GoalGurus and #PassionWorkshops. I was sorting out my life (and still am) and let my good friend Cai represent me that day.
The 2018 edition of the Belle de Jour (BDJ) Power Planner is officially on sale, first made available to the public for purchase last October 21 and 22 at the Shangri-la Plaza East Atrium. The message of planner this year is conveyed on the cover, “I am a beauty of one,” a call to embrace one’s individuality. This year, the launch sale commenced with a two-day gathering of the planner’s fans, following the planner’s message of celebrating uniqueness with a theme “Dare to be you.”
Introduced together with premier planner is the 2018 edition of the Navi Journal: Your Life Navigator. While the BDJ Power Planner is designed to empower the modern-day Filipina, the Navi Journal aims to guide the wanderlust soul. Apart from these classics, three other journals and planners were available in the event: Everything is Possible Planner, Focus Journal, and the newest addition to the collection, the Essentials notebook, crafted for the bullet journaling enthusiast or the free-flowing creative. All these products and the rest of the stationery collection will be available for purchase at a special launch price until the end of October.
With only a little over two months away from a new year, the event gave a special focus on helping its participants in setting and achieving their #2018Goals. In a series of talks by different #GoalGurus, the attendees learned how they can get started in achieving different goals for 2018. The talks were categorized into the following: #PlannerGoals, #FinanceGoals, #FashionGoals, #FitnessGoals, #HealthGoals, #MinimalistGoals, #TravelGoals and #LifeGoals.
Some of the speakers include Liz Lanuzo, founder of Project Vanity, who talked about how she achieved her life goal of turning her passion into profit. Cheska Sarausad of Sunlife talked about setting realistic financial goals for the coming year and safeguarding investments in the time of economic instability. Mental health advocate and writer Nannie Flores shared her struggle with depression, and how she overcame the battle.
Ultimately, Belle de Jour goes above and beyond the planners, journals and stationeries to help women live life to the fullest; it is the modern Filipinas’ partner in realizing her dreams and goals in every aspect of her life.
Viviamo! Inc.’s president and the brainchild behind the BDJ Power Planner, Darlyn Ty-Nilo, shared that the inspiration behind this year’s message is to remind people that no one person is like anyone else on this planet. “In the age of social media when people are pressured to conform to an image or identity, we must constantly remind people that their beauty lies in their uniqueness. And we hope that the users of the BDJ planner will be reminded of that every time they plan their day ahead.”
Every year, Viviamo! Inc., donates to an advocacy all the proceeds raised from the activities held during the BDJ Launch.
