The First Ever BDJ Box Beauty Social

The BDJ Box Beauty Social was held on March 24, 2013 at SM Mall of Asia Atrium.  It was an event filled with fun and about being truly beautiful inside and out. There were lots of activity booths which catered to makeup and skin care. As I mentioned in my previous post, there were also various talks to attend. 


The cute and creative event passport!

Lots of participant headed on to the SM MoA Atrium
With my growing interest in makeup, I saw to it that I would get an invite to the talks! I was very happy that I got to attend two topics! 

The first one was Bond with the BDJ Box Beauty Ministry. It was a Q and A portion with Ms. Tara Cabullo, Ms. Kate Alvarez, and Ms. Nicole Romero. They answered to our questions about skin care, makeup and lipsticks, and maintaining hair color. We had a very informative chit chat with beauty experts! 

I learned a lot from them, especially when it comes to hair. With Ms. Kate's advice, I will also try out different products and techniques until I get the perfect routine for my type of hair.

Since the next talk was at 4:00 PM, I decided to stroll around the venue and explore the various booths! 

The first one that I visited was the Selena Gomez Fragrance! I tried on a spritz and the scent was sweet and has a strong hint of blueberry. I love berry scents. It came in a cute packaging too!

There were makeup lessons going on at the Revlon corner. I listened at the sides as the makeup artist shared his knowledge on the basic application of makeup.

Other kiosks had free makeovers, too! Let me mention MaxFactor, Cover Girl, and Shiseido. Gosh! If I would have known , I shouldn't have worn makeup that day.

Here are the other booths that caught my attention:


The Defuzzing Booth of Browhaus and Strip.

The L'occitane Kiosk

I love the color of Snoe. So pink! 

Nail Art from Yuka!
By 4:00 PM, I lined up once more at the talk area for the next topic which was All Dolled Up with Archie Tolentino. He is a makeup artist of Maybelline. I am very privileged to have learned from an expert!



Mr. Archie Tolentino teaching us about makeup application.
Archie taught us how to do the summer look. It is about wearing minimal makeup and using products that offer sun protection. What I found most inspiring was when he said that it's time that we should embrace our skin color! So for Filipinos, orange tints for lipstick and blush looks best. 

All pre-registered girls got a loot bag. There was a gorgeous Revlon mascara, Women's Health  magazine, Pantene Color Care Shampoo, L'oreal Anti-hair fall shampoo and conditioner, samples from Physiogel and a whole lot more! 


My loot of the day.

Custom Eyes mascara from Revlon was included in the loot bag.

And oh! I won this clamp from the games earlier! Yay!

Other than these lovely booths and informative talks, I'm very glad to have seen my BDJ friends again! Until next time, dear sisters! Here is a collage of me with my friends, Darlyn of BDJ, and the speakers.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
