Making It Happen at The BDJ Fair 2013

October 13, 2013 - The BDJ 2013 was held in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall with the theme, Make It Happen! Despite the threat of rainfall, the day went by smoothly. Thank God the sun shone that day! (^_^) Lots of Bellas attended and participated in the booth activities and talks from the renowned guests.

Look at all the booths in this map!
The first thing I did? I went to the selling booth to claim my personalized Belle de Jour Power Planner 2014! I waited for it for so long that I couldn't contain my excitement when I saw it! Yay!

My very own BDJ 2014! Yay!
Then, it was time for me to explore the booths. I visited the Canmake stall for a free makeover! This was intentional! Of course I should look good in my BDJ Fair photos! LOL!

Canmake cosmetic products on display! So cute and tempting! 
I was privileged to have Bea Almeda as my makeup artist. I learned a lot about Canmake cosmetics and makeup from her! I love the Cream Cheek now! It does give a soft tint to the face. Ms. Bea is so skilled with her craft. She made me beautiful with a natural look. 


Me and Ms. Bea
Tokyo Posh got me so curious about clip-on hair extensions and I was very lucky to try it! Wow! Hair does change the overall look of a person! I tried the long curly one and it made me look younger and innocent. LOL! The hair extension looks natural too. 


Natural makeup by Canmake and hair extensions by Tokyo Posh = glam me! LOL! 
Boxes of hair extensions were there! 
Food booths like J.Co were there! I love the fact that there was no queue in there! LOL! 



Here is the Roxy Wall Climbing booth that I have been wanting to try since last year! But nah... I didn't want to go alone.

Waaa! So sorry I wasn't able to take photos of all the booths! BDJ had this Instagram thingy going on. Just tag #BDJMakeItHappen on your photos and you will get a free print out from Print Social! Not only that, your photos will appear on stage too! Wow! That is so new! And you know what else is new? Me taking selfies with friends and posting it online! LOL! I wanted print outs, too! 

Live photos on Instagram appeared on stage.
Speaking of selfies, I took the Trilogy Boutique selfie challenge and got a slot for the T-Shirt Cutting Workshop! I really enjoyed being part of this activity! We were laughing while cutting a PhP1,000 shirt! Oh my gosh! LOL! This one I will write in detail in a separate post.

When 4:10 PM came, I went to the stage area for a talk entitled "An Inspiring Way to the Crown" by none other than Ms. Venus Raj! She talked about living well and eating healthy food. She emphasized that diet is the biggest contributor in having good skin and body.

She talked about her experiences, too.

While moving around, I got to bond with my soul sisters, too! It was good to see you again, guys! These pretty girls completed by BDJ Fair experience! It wasn't just about makeup, talks, celebs, and freebies! This day was about making memories with friends, too! 


Here is another thing I always write about: The Freedom Wall. This time, it was about something that you will make happen in 2014. 


Hmmm... I couldn't think of anything else apart from seeing those I love. So...

Off to see these countries in 2014, I hope! :) 
The year 2014... a complete mystery of time! A loop of possibilities, failures, success, beginnings, and endings await! Scared? Yes, but courage is here to stay! With that, let me say, 2014 will be my year of letting go and making my dreams happen! Live life to the fullest!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi

My Playlist

My taste for music spans a lot of genre! I like Pop, Rock, Alternative, K-pop, J-pop, and RnB. What makes me like the song is the lyrics foremost, and rhythm would be next. I am not really a music junkie. I can't even sing! But I turn to music to make me relax whenever I'm stressed out. It also makes me forget time. As of the moment, my playlist involves a lot of K-Pop songs, thanks to Rain for that matter. There are also Filipino, English and Japanese songs. When I play music, I really pay attention to it. I listen to the rhythm, the tempo, the artist's voice, and the overall emotions of the song. That was how my music critique self was born! It's been a long time since I posted an album review. My playlist for the moment is as shown below. I usually put it on shuffle so this is not ranked according to how I like the music. Credits of the YouTube videos that I embedded goes to their respective owners.  1. My Way by Rain - This is the only song which made me cry
