Hi! I am Toni. But you may call me Ms. TM. I’m a wife, a mother of two, and a beauty, wellness and style entrepreneur from Manila.
My greatest inspirations are my husband and my two children. You can say that I’m really a family-oriented person.
I love spending time with them because we can all hang out together like friends. My husband and I enjoy sharing our stories to our children, from our childhood memories to our life experiences, and really just laugh and talk about everything.
It is also wonderful that I have two grown children now. We have an open and healthy relationship because we can share fun moments with each other and talk about personal challenges and how to handle them. They also keep me up-to-date with the latest movies, technology and social media trends.
Our family loves adventure, so we travel and discover new places like restaurants and vacation spots. We make it a point to have weekly bonding moments. But since the kids are now in college, it has become a bit challenging to do it regularly. This is also the reason why I believe having one faith in the family is a huge blessing. It keeps us all grounded on one foundation—and that is Jesus Christ. We make Him the center of our lives by worshipping God together and having family devotions at home. So we try our best to keep Sunday as our family day.
My story and purpose
As I went through life’s ups and downs, I have learned that my life is not about me. I used to think that I am a self-made woman. My definition of success was motivated by money and position. I have lived a stressful and sinful life. I am always busy and loaded with activities. My hectic life came to a pause when I went through hysterectomy. It is after this event that I began searching for my life’s purpose. Then I began to know God deeper.
I realized, focusing on me does not reveal my life’s purpose—it is in understanding that I was made by God and for God. My life is all about God using me for His purpose and not the other way around. It’s about becoming the woman that God created me to be.
There is nothing in my life that God didn’t care about—yes, even the bad—this is why I hold onto Romans 7 and 8 so dearly. I am now living in the new life God has given me through the grace of Jesus Christ. And I want to help others discover their purposes as well by using the gifts and experiences God has given me.
I hope and pray that through my personal testimony and learning experiences shared in this blog, readers will be refreshed, inspired and encouraged to take a leap of faith—to trust God and surrender it all to discover the fullness of life that only He can provide.
What Toni.ph is all about?
I believe that our purpose in life affects our health and wellness. Stress can trigger many illnesses and can deeply affect our immune system. Personally, I have been a victim of stress that resulted to many setbacks in my life. It was also stress that had an impact on my dear mother, who passed away at the age of 69 due to colon cancer. It has since become my life’s passion to advocate health and wellness; applying its principles in my everyday life, from scheduling my day-to-day activities to involving in hobbies that improve my skill set. My knowledge in health and wellness stems from my four years of experience in this industry, focusing mainly on all natural, organic and wellness treatments. It is for this reason that I put up Toni.ph, to connect with like-minded people and help others achieve a healthy and stress-free lifestyle that I personally practice.
It is my desire that through Toni.ph, people will be inspired and be a better version of themselves each time they visit my blog. Toni.ph’s mission is to educate and inspire people to live a meaningful and purposeful life by promoting the true value of beauty, wellness and style inside and out.
Toni.ph will feature stories, tips and articles that will inspire and inform readers how to live a healthy lifestyle; manage stress through quiet time, physical activities, wellness treatments, music, social network, travel, organic and healthy food and drinks; and share my own total wellness and style journey.
Aside from stress management, image enhancement will also be tackled in the blog, since I am also a professional image consultant. I will share details about style, how to improve image and develop personal branding, among others topics. And this is not limited to an individual only but will also cater to business organizations and other various groups. While improving one’s self is essential, how you represent yourself to the world equally matters.
The blog will also include inspiring stories of friends whom I have learned from through my Coffee Talk Journey segment. This will capture matters related to marriage, family life, business and the everyday concerns of life, and how they are able to change their lives for the better. I will impart my personal learnings from their testimonies as well, and pray that it may touch your hearts and lead you to know our God much deeper.
Toni.ph aims to be an avenue where readers can be guided into a stress-free and healthy lifestyle, nourishing relationships, spiritual wellness, and a confident image of themselves doing their life’s purposes.
Ms. TM’s Work
I am a professional image consultant and founder of Radiance Image Consultancy. My vision is to see individuals and corporate groups living an extraordinary, purposeful life through the transformation of mind, body and spirit. With over 20 years of working in the corporate world, my wealth of training, development, and personal branding experience especially to professionals and organizations in the fields of financial management, leadership, marketing, and entrepreneurship has made me adept in image consultancy.
I have been trained by the world’s top Image Masters, Ms. Christina Ong and Ms. Lynne Marks. I am one of the few image consultants in the Philippines who have certifications from the prestigious London Image Institute and Academy of Image Mastery. I decided to establish Radiance Image Consultancy to impart my wisdom and experiences as an image and beauty consultant and to develop people to become extraordinary inside and out.
I help my clients represent their personal, professional and spiritual values in the image they want to project to their target market. This includes appearance, behavior, communication skills, etiquette and even counseling about international protocols.
As consultant, I assist clients in image enhancement such as body and color analysis, wardrobe development and management. I also do trainings to achieve a sound and effective communication, as well as provide coaching in business and social etiquette, civility, branding, among others.
It is my goal that every client I handle will have their authentic persona, whether as an individual or corporation, and to have confidence and integrity in their own brands.
I am also a motivational speaker, trainer and mentor. I do talks about health and wellness, beauty and style, entrepreneurship, and leadership.
