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!

And they are here! I love it! Everyone arrived on time and almost everyone is present! :)

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!

Autograph time!

My readers Honey Jexie and Tin Tin who gladly asked for my autograph; I was like "Oh, you want my autograph? Okay!" LOL.

Nice meeting you, Tin Tin; I hope you will stick around for a long time! :)

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!

Everyone went home with happy tummies and makeup kits!

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? :))))))

  9. I really enjoy this event I met new sets of friends,Know some beauty hacks of Ms.Martha,her billion dollar brow technique,Enjoy the snack,having a autograph of her,taking selfie and of course the goodies she gave us... I know I'm one of those who is newbie in reading her blog,stalking her on FB & IG but when I discover all her social media account Im starting be hooked. And when I started to read her blog my confidence boost to the maximum level I dunno why but she gave me inspiration to do what is your passion... I made my own blog site (May 9,2016) and my first blog is this wonderful "TBJ MEGA PARTY". Even before I really want to be blogger but I have a fear what if no one will read my blog or what if people will only give criticism on my work and lots of negatives idea But when I started to make a BLOG and share it on my Facebook I'm really shocked because in only 1 day my blog views is almost 200 and it really makes me happy and some of my friend calling me and tease me ohh your now a blogger and I'm so shy of that..Thank you Ms. Martha for all the knowledge you share to us. More years for you..Godbless You

  15. Hi Ms. Martha, sorry for the late reply. Just finished writing an article for my freelance work. I just want to greet you a Happy 7th Anniversary. I am very glad that you have made this blog for us Pinays and Pinoys. Thank you for the wonderful reviews and the recommendations because I am using some of the products that you've suggested in your post. I can't believe that I would be joining you in celebrating your blog's anniversary. Thank you for the tips, and your Million Dollar Brows tutorial. Sorry for giving you cake, I know that you're on a diet, so peace. I will send the photos that I took of the event, but will send it batch by batch because the file is too big.

    I am glad to have met new friends and people during the event. It was also nice to see Donna and Abby again.

    For those who want to add me, you can add me at the following. I have posted the photos from the event.

  19. Congratulations on your 7th year Ms. M! I'm sure these lovely ladies enjoyed this party too. Sana may tour ka na to cater your visayas and mindanao readers hehehe.

    I just wanna share how I started reading your blog.
    It was an accident, actually. My niece was playing with my laptop then she opened this site by accident. From then on I got hooked. I read your reviews before I buy products (my beauty guru) and even pinned your site on the bookmarks hehe. You really inspire women. And I, as a reader, am really grateful for that.

    More power to you and I'm hoping I could meet you in person when you visit Davao :)
