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!

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. Tous Les Jours signage in SM North The front view of the store.  Yummy breads on display!  Breads on display for sale. Oh! There is my favorite! 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
