Makeup Gigs 2012
I have an "auditor" husband who notes down on all my makeup gigs and he reported to me that my makeup gigs multiplied twice this year! I want to thank all my new and returning clients for getting my services as I enjoyed prettifying all of them! The year 2012 has been a wonderful year for me doing the job I love most!

Studio SnR's First Ever I Love Beauty Workshop
My love for teaching combined with my love for makeup puts me into various workshops with different companies and brands! Early this year, my dear friend Sydney from Studio SnR have decided to create a workshop series called "I Love Beauty" with Garnier and Maybelline and I was the lucky girl who was picked to teach about skincare and help out with students on how to apply makeup that suits them!
The event was covered by Manila Bulletin!
Mr. AMW was kind enough to take me to South Korea (my dream place to visit) so I told him the year 2012 will be HIS year! His dream destination is Japan so I have decided to go ahead with the booking and enjoy 5 days in Tokyo! It was the best decision ever as we enjoyed Tokyo so much we would love to go back someday! Probably...with Baby AMW! :D
Porefessionally Pretty with Benefit x AMW
Mid this year, I was invited to do a workshop at Benefit Boutique in Greenbelt 5 for ladies who wants to look Porefessionally Pretty! It was 4 hours of basic makeup to professional makeup teaching and we ended up with party makeup! I enjoyed the workshop so much I am looking forward for more of our partnership the coming year!
Sophie Martin Paris Makeup Talk
The year 2012 must be the year for makeup x teaching! I was surprised to get an invite from Sophie Martin Paris for a makeup talk with their members! I didn't know what to expect that day but I dressed myself professionally as I shared the whole day event with 2 fellow bloggers Tin and Carissa (both bloggers talked about fashion). The event was held at the Sophie Martin Paris, Philippines showroom and I have to admit, for someone who was used to teaching a huge crowd, it was a bit overwhelming to see such huge crowd of people who are very much interested learning about simple skincare and makeup tips! Given the chance, I'll do this over and over again in a heartbeat!
AMW x CharChar as The Purple Groom's Brand Ambassadors
Who says women in their 30's can't be brand ambassadors? *chuckles* Can I say you're wrong? Anything can be possible if you own a super cute, fluffy pet friend like I do! CharChar, my 6-year old Pomeranian dog, and I were invited to be The Purple Groom's Brand Ambassador! This shoot (Shot around end of August) was very special to me as I already knew I was pregnant ! I was actually heading to the doctor immediately after the shoot for Doctor's confirmation!
(Inside my head: "Charchar, you are my baby for now but I will have a real baby soon!")
But don't worry Charchar, you'll always have a special place in my heart and I'm sure Baby AMW will love you as much as I do! :D
Nestle Crunch x AMW
Since we're on the topic of photoshoot, I was also invited to shoot for Nestle's Funtacular Ways of Eating Nestle Crunch Ice Cream! It was a fun day as I get to work with Niccolo Cosme once again and I've always been a fan of his works!
AMW Featured on Maven Magazine
After my Vaseline magazine feature, I haven't really thought I'd see myself in a glossy once again! This time, it was a feature for AskMeWhats as a blog and blogger! A full page dedicated for my blog! I am very happy with it and I want to thank Maven magazine for this awesome opportunity!!!
The Birth of AskMeMom
Last but not the least, the best gift that I won't forget is the birth of AskMeMom! I am finally going to be a mommy!!! Many people have prayed and hoped for a Baby AMW and I want to thank all my friends who prayed for me! I have gone through really tough times making sure my mom is alright and I'm glad my prayers has been answered and I cannot hope for anything more for the coming years but the safety of Baby AMW! I hope you are as excited as we are to share my journey not only as a Blogger but as a Mom! :D
Thank you 2012, you've been very good to me! I'm pretty excited and looking forward for 2013! :)
What are you most thankful for the year 2012?
I'd love to hear from you!
