You know what they say about "Blogging"....
It's a crazy world to get into, you'll be entangled between "Catfights" and jealousy!
Well I am here to say in 3 big words : "SO NOT TRUE".
The Blogging World actually gave me so much more! More friends, more experiences and knowledge in the field other people may find "shallow or useless" but for us, this "Field" means the world of Happiness to us!
Liz of Project Vanity and I goes way back! If you ask me about how we first met, I can't seem to remember (Liz, Help?)
You may not see us often taking "Twofies", in an event, we may not be always together, but both of us have this special understanding that we love each other dearly! (Liz, aminin mo totoo ha!) But we've been very vocal about how we respect each other and how much I look up to her because she achieved so much at such a young age!
That's why when she invited me to be part of her 7th Blog Anniversary, without hesitation, I immediately said YES! Even if I knew my life would be crazy that day taking Kyle to the Pediatrician, rush home (in crazy traffic Manila) and drive all the way to BHS Central. I knew I had to be there, to support her, and to show her how much I'm a proud "sister".
The event was held at the newly opened Beauty Bar at BHS Central. The place is huge! Even girls who are used to exposing themselves in makeup (me) ooh'd and aahh'd inside the store!
The event was hosted by the witty and funny Karrots Nazareno.
The adorable Liz in her gorgeous Purple dress! She looks so happy and I can't be any prouder!
Just look at the jampacked Beauty Bar! Everyone's listening intently to Liz's makeup demo!
Liz demonstrated her version of a quick summer look on beautiful model Cris.
The products she used (as I remember) - K-Palette Eyebrow Pencil, Prestige Intense Eyeshadow Combo, Prestige Lip Crayon, Smashbox PhotoFinish Primer, Happy Skin ZZ Cream, Smashbox Face Powder, The Balm Instain and Bahama Mama.
Quick Summer Look on Cris
The biggest surprise for the attendees? Learning beyond Physical Beauty!
Rissa Mananquil-Trillo of Happy Skin Cosmetics gave a quick tip on how to be a successful entrepreneur.
Cheryl Tan-Chua of Beauty Box Corporation gave us insight on how she manages her time! (I can totally relate to this!)
May Samson of Burt's Bees gave the most intense talk of all! She shared to us how to climb the corporate ladder!
