Spinkie Founder and PhilStar.com Columnist at 3rd Mompreneur Summit

At the 3rd Mompreneur Summit, you’ll learn precious insights from these two formidable women.


Mutya Laxa Buensuceso has the best of both worlds.

As the country manager of Luxasia Philippines, her weekdays are filled with one meeting after another as she is responsible for the growth and development of some of the most coveted brands in the beauty business. In between, she squeezes in work for Spinkie, an online boutique specializing in baby essentials.

As the mom of Mayumi and Malaya and wife of artist Jinggoy Buensuceso, she gets to enjoy the country life at their home in Alfonso, Cavite on weekends. There, she reads stories to her children, takes care of their vegetable garden, and goes on quick trips to nearby farms.

By striking a balance between her home life and her career life, Mutya has made for herself and her family a beautiful life.

Married to Marvin, founding president of the Fund Managers Association of the Philippines (FMAP), Rose eventually decided to be a full-time homemaker.
