Style Origin at Centrio Ayala Mall, CDO!!!

I am not a Fashion Guru and never a Fashion model, but I am a Fashion enthusiast and I do love to watch people and celebrities who have the right Fashion sense. This is my first time to watch a Fashion Show and I was amazed. I was amazed because I never thought that a Fashion Show could showcase such elegance and beauty in just a matter of time.

Ms Phoemela Baranda was the host for the Style Origin (Inspiring Imagination) event at Ayala Centrio Mall last May 25, 2013. I only see her on Televisions and I was star struck by the way she handles herself and the way she hosted the show with such sophistication and how she manage to get her audience hook to the show.
These are just some of the PHOTOS that I have took during the Fashion Show, the fashion show was brought to us by Bettina, Artwork, Jockey, Parfois, Promod, Sperry top-sider, and other sponsors that I may have forgotten to mention.




Of course, the event will not be PERFECT without the beautiful Ms Julia Barretto (daughter of Marjorie Barretto (actress) and Dennis Padilla (comedian/actor). Ms Julia Barretto gracefully walk down the ramp like every ramp model can and she was so admirable in every aspect.


I am so thankful that I was invited for this event  and that I didn’t turned it down (to think that we are sitting on the first rows). Kudos to the people behind this successful event!

♥ Tinkerbell Outfit

Thank you! Thank you to the two people who exerted so much effort to make my baby girl’s 1st birthday outfit possible. My baby girl turned one last March 17 and yes, it was a very memorable day for her and for my family and friends because for the first time here we made a Tinkerbell themed birthday party possible. I have prepared for Chicay’s birthday party ahead of time because I want everything to be perfect for my little girl. And I am thankful that my friends, online and offline, helped me and made my dream possible. It was hard to look for an outfit here in our place (we live in a rural area, and people don’t sell outfits like this one) and so I asked for help. My blogging friend Pehpot of Make or Break, a doting mother to her 4 kids, made the first outfit for my baby girl. The one with the violet/purple trimmings and paired with Mommy Pehpot’s handmade hair accessory.

The second outfit, the tutu style, is made by my dear cousin Aine of Lovin’ the Prize of Life. The blouse/onesie that is paired with the tutu skirt was just a simple white onesie and Aine added embellishments on it after it was printed with Tinkerbell’s photo and a number 1 at the back.


I envy their craftsmanship and creativity and how I wish I also know or have the brains and hands to make these beautiful outfits, but still I am thankful that they were part of the success of my baby girl’s birthday party even though they are miles apart from where I live.

Wedding Prep

Preparing for your wedding is not easy especially if you don’t hire your very own wedding coordinator. If you are very meticulous about your wedding and you want everything to be perfect, you need to make a list about everything that you need for your wedding. You need to make a list so that you will not forget about even the smallest thing about your wedding such as the white wedding lights that you will really need to make your wedding a perfect one.

Least you should forget about the embellishments in your wedding gown and of course, the wedding rings and wedding vows that you will say during your wedding rites. And of course, the wedding entourage should be on the list too. Prepare ahead of time and make that list 6 months before or 1 year before the wedding date.

Sophie Paris Soiree

My first event for year 2013 and I am so happy! I am one of the CDO bloggers who signed up for the Sophie Be More Fashion and Beauty Soiree last May 25, 2013 at The Malberry Suites Business Hotel.

Before the event started, we look at Sophie Paris products and gosh, I love the bags that they had on display right upon the entrance.

Before the main event started, the guests who registered can visit their make up booth, where they will met a make up artist who will apply make ups to enhance the guests beauty. Aside from that, they also have showcased their current and new Sophie Paris scents just beside the Make Up booth. Sophie Paris coordinated with a Photo Booth too, so willing guests can have their photos taken if they want to.

Sophie Paris dealers and business partners from all over Mindanao came for this soiree, and you can see in this wall where they came from:

Sophie Paris dealers and business partners from different places prepared a chant because they had a contest for that. I love the Zamboanga cheering squad (they sure look cheerleaders) and they are well-prepared for their chant, they even have a tarpaulin for that! Malaybalay Bukidnon cheering squad was also prepared, they even have pompoms and short skirts to match their uniforms.

The gorgeous Binibining Pilipinas 2nd runner up Ali Forbes graced the event, she even gave us a song number. There was a fashion show for Sophie Paris products too. And before the soiree ended, there were prizes for the early birds (the people who registered or arrived earliest) and raffle prizes (each guest has a ticket number). Over-all, I can say that the event was a successful one.
Of course, I tried my modelling career for a second there:
I want to say THANK YOU Sophie Paris for inviting me and my friends for this Fashion and Beauty Soiree. And thank you for the freebies and giveaways.
