Hi there! My name is Michelle Katigbak Alejandro. It’s usually quite hard for me to describe myself accurately in just a few words because I love so many things! My interests are as varied as a pack of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans and I love discovering new things every day. But, I guess, at the very bottom of it all, I’m a mom, a writer, a photographer, a geek, a hard worker, a day dreamer, and a creative spirit.
I’m a writer by profession and have been involved in media since I was a teenager having worked for publications like The Philippine Star, Chalk Magazine, and Metro Weddings Magazine, as well as contributing to other publications and newspapers. I also run my family’s homegrown PR business, which has me producing creative content for a wide variety of businesses. I’m very lucky that in my work I get to be around inspiring and creative minds that are always pushing the boundaries.
Alongside a highly creative career, I’m a mom to a beautiful and imaginative carefree young ballet princess named Bella. She teaches me new things every day and I love rediscovering magic through her eyes. Because of Bella I’ve renewed my love for creating fun parties, crafting, and coloring outside the lines. It’s amazing how much more exciting the world seems when seen through the eyes of a child!
On this blog, my ultimate passion project – Peanut Butter and Glitter – I’m chronicling my crazy, trip-on-my-own-feet, dance-like-no-one-is-watching, and sing-at-the-top-of-my-lungs antics as I share my passion for writing, photography, styling, crafting, creating, and parties. I’m no Martha Stewart (by any stretch of the imagination), but I am certainly having fun getting my hands glittery and trying new things.
I decided to call my online home Peanut Butter and Glitter because they are probably two of my absolute favorite things! I’ve put together a fun roster of my favorite crafts (tried and tested – and some failed at miserably the first time – by me), sweets and recipes I adore, styling tips and fun photo sessions (including some snippets of my magazine work), parties and events I’ve styled and those I just loved attending, as well inspiration from the travels I have been fortunate enough to enjoy.
So, thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy PB&G as much as I do. Have fun, get some glitter on your hands, and have a snack with me! After all, life should be enjoyed with a little sweetness and sparkle!
