MomBrandLove is the newest category on this blog. This is in awe of mompreneurs who lovingly put a lot of effort in their business along with juggling tasks for kids, husband, the home and everything in between! I hope that my blog will be an avenue for other moms to discover mom-made products. Moms support moms, yeah!
There’s a saying that moms are the light of the homes. That even with all the roles we have to juggle, we will always be the ray of sunshine in our partner’s otherwise gloomy day or the spark of joy in our kids’ lives. It’s befitting that Illumine Living is run by a hands-on mom: Lizza Fajardo-Torres.
Tita Lizza started making scented candles as a hobby and gave it as gifts to friends and relatives. Soon enough, orders started coming so Illumine Living was formally launched last year. Now, she also makes soaps, room sprays, diffusers and body scrubs all made from natural ingredients. I’m obsessed with the Baby Scent Room Scent as it transports me back to having a newborn! The Lavender-scented pouch keeps drawers and cabinets smelling fresh also. And because my kids look tasty to mosquitoes, the Citronella Spray is a must in our bag! Her products can be tweaked to your favorite scents so it can be a great giveaway for parties and weddings!
I think Tita Lizza is a great example of defying stereotypes hurled against moms. You see, she’s been a mom for 21 years now and that did not stop her from pursuing a business, even going out of the country to learn from the experts. This goes to show that when you become a mom, life does not stop giving you opportunities to grow and evolve! All the more that we become innovative at what’s given to us. This is what makes mompreneurs such an inspiring group!
