TBJ AT 7: A Mega Thanksgiving Party Highlights!
On April 30, 2016, I just had the biggest party of my blogging career; few days before the party, I wasn't really sure if I wanted to continue: 'Will people show up?" "Are there still people reading my blog?" "What if only 5 people come?" First time jitters, as they say, but a moment of reflection gave back my courage and trust in the blog and its readers; I did my work and now it's time to trust so the doubts and fears were replaced with "LET'S DO THIS!"
If I chickened out, I would have missed out one of the best moments of my blogging career, my 7th anniversary MEGA Thanksgiving party. Let me show you what went down in my biggest party for the year!
My lovely dress is courtesy of Guess and it's part of the SS 16 Collection. It's so beautiful, isn't it?
By 12pm, I was at Benefit Cosmetics SM Megamall already to ingress the beauty bags, pick up event food, and prepare for the event.
Benefit Cosmetics, apart from lending their store as the venue of my event, gladly threw in snacks and beverage for my readers. What a cute set up!
I really looked for the faces of these ladies in the event and I'm glad that they all came! Meet The Beauty Junkee's most avid readers, Abigail, Elaine, Donna, Ana, Rhania, and Russ. Love you all, ladies! :) They're enjoying Hot Star's famous Chicken Skin on sticks in here; I love these!
And the program begins. I started with a brief 'thank you' speech to everyone for attending (and honestly, to shake off nervous energies haha!). First part of the program was a discussion on the skin care hacks that I swear by and discovered myself; for the longest time, my readers would always ask what I do and which products I use to maintain my skin's healthy, smooth look so I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my techniques in the party.
Next part of the program was a brow demo; Care of Celina, Benefit's National Brow Artist (Chief Brow Artist, that is) in the Philippines, she demonstrated Benefit's world- famous technique in shaping brows. Tasha Santos of Benefit explained the procedure for my readers while I checked out the entries of the participants in the event contest.
And I demonstrated my Billion Dollar Brow Technique, my 5- step approach to achieving fabulous brows. Lemme organize another workshop soon!
Next, I demonstrated my Summer- Proof makeup look; I did not demonstrate a look because I knew that since my readers are beauty aficionados, they already know how to fix their faces; instead, I dished out my favorite summer- friendly, no budge makeup favorites! Flashing my favorite long- wearing matte lipstick in here, Sleek MakeUP Matte Me in Birthday Suit!
And that's all!
My readers Honey Jexie and Tin Tin who gladly asked for my autograph; I was like "Oh, you want my autograph? Okay!" LOL.
The ladies who made this party possible: Celina, Jane, and Tasha of Benefit Cosmetics Philippines and Egel of Sleek MakeUP Philippines. Missing Deirdre of Procter and Gamble, Kacey of Jergens Philippines, and Joel of Zoya/Morgan Taylor Philippines in the photo!
To The Beauty Junkee fans, thank you very much for celebrating with me my 7th year in the Blogosphere; thank you also to my Blogger and Media friends, Liz of Project Vanity, Rowena of Animetric's World, and Euden of The Manila Times for dropping by; Blogging/Writing is fun times two when you're sharing it with people who are as passionate about it as you!
To the brands who made this event (and my blog as well!) a success, Hot Star Philippines, Jergens Philippines, Sleek MakeUP Philippines, Zoya Philippines, Morgan Taylor Philippines, Safeguard, Pantene, Olay, and Benefit Cosmetics Philippines thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to share my blessings to my fans.
To tell everyone the truth; I was feeling really stressed and down days before this party; I am grateful for the opportunity to have this because it made me realize how truly blessed I am; no words can explain how happy I was that day so again and again, THANK YOU to everyone. :)
To end this post, here are some snaps from the VIPs of my party!
Now I can't wait to see what's in store on my 8th. How about stretching the list from 30 to 50 for my 8th anniversary? :))))))
