Officially Launched ;)

I was at Watsons, SM Makati yesterday afternoon for Neutrogena's Start the Year Light campaign launch. There was a photo exhibit of us, eight ambassadors :D

I'm really honored and excited to be part of this group: full of lovely and empowered women :) Special thanks to Hannah of Flaircandy for the photo below:

Thank you also to two of my bestest buddies (KY and Sherry) for being there at the event :D

Childhood friends are really the best ;)

See You Tomorrow? :)

Big day tomorrow :)  

Start the Year Light Invite

I've attended a lot of events, most especially with my last job as editor-in-chief, and as a fashion/beauty columnist.  But this Neutrogena event is different, since I am part of it.  I'm really excited, and I've invited my childhood friends to join me as my guests.  If you happen to be in the area, do say hi :)

Adorable J!

Our co-manager at the store found the last piece of bonnet (promo price of P205 from P400+) last Friday.  She knew I wanted one, and bought it for me that day. That night, I had little J wear it.  He's just too cute :D




Can you imagine?  He's wearing a adult-size bonnet!  Our little J is really a big boy ;)

Loving My Work

I, along with the rest of the Forever 21 team, had the chance to hang out with Mr. Alex Ok.  He is one of the people behind Forever 21, and he dropped by for a day to check up on us and the store.


Learned so much from him, and we're ready to give everyone an even better shopping experience, most especially for this holiday season. It was truly an honor to have met with Mr. Ok :)

Divi Shopping

I went to Divisoria last Saturday, and bought myself some holiday gift bags.  Along with those, I bought stuff for little J as well:

A chair that I got from the same stall that sells paper bags, for P120

I didn't know that it makes a sound whenever you sit on it, until little J did.  He loves the chair that he sits down on it every chance he gets.  He brings it up to his room, or brings it downstairs when he eats, too!

A Ben Ten watch that has blinking lights, P75 ;)

This adorable stuffed tiger hat that we can use when we go to cooler places.  Price: P150

I bought more stuff that I wasn't able to take photos of.   Shopping at Divisoria is always fun, and you really end up buying more than what you need, so I always bring just the right amount of bills so I won't go over my budget ;)

A New Family Member

Meet Sparky :) We finally got him after three months.  I ordered this back when I was in Bangkok, and had it shipped to Manila.  It took a while, but it was worth the wait :)






Hope little J learns to sit on him and stay still.  I think this would make a great "chair" for him, and a nice accent for our living room :)

Little J's Groovy Shirts

My brother, Jones, and his fiance Tippi, buy the cutest shirts for little J :)


Our yaya loves calling little J "Mr. President"

Team Manila now has shirts for kids.  
Little J is a big boy, so this shirt for a 5 year old fits loosely on him.

Thanks, Kuku-Wanya—that's what little J should learn to call my bro ;)

As mentioned in my previous post, I am part of the 8 Key Opinion Leaders of Neutrogena, along with Patty Laurel.  I got to spend the entire day with the 7 other pretty ladies, and shared corny jokes with Patty—which was something we used to do back then when she was part of my staff in Pink magazine...


Yeah, we're corny like that!  Haha... I won't share the jokes here, they have to be verbally delivered with confidence for you to laugh at them ;)

Please read my other blog entry and Neutrogena Fine Fairness facebook fan page for more details of my trip and the product line :D

What a Week :o

A few months back, budding designers Audrey Ednacot and Kato Chua asked me to be one of their muses for their show at Members Only.  Their reason? I was the very first one who featured them, and they wanted to thank me by including me in their show.

I cleared this with my boss, and she gave me the go signal for this.  But as the actual date closes in, I was having second thoughts on joining since I felt I was too old to be part of this hip and young group :o  At the same time, I was too shy to tell these two girls that I won't be able to make it.  So, there... I made it to their event; and I'm sure glad I did, 'coz I was able to catch up with a few friends I haven't seen for the longest time :) 

Chia Hollman-Yulo, who was my intern in Pink magazine

Hairstylist and makeup artist Ruel Papa (we go way back PBB Teens 2).  He did the hair of all the muses that night, great job!

My "baby" cousin, Gerovy King

My dinner:

My dress paired with Forever 21 platform booties, Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch and Forever 21 connector ring.  Hoop earrings by Diamant.

And lastly, thank you Thons and NJ for the support --- naks!

BTW, Thons and NJ---Do you remember this photo? hehe...
NJ introduced me to Thons that night ;)

I'm off to Tagaytay (Nurture Spa) tomorrow, courtesy of Neutrogena. Will be up by 5AM :o
Will share photos soon! :)

Enjoy the looooong weekend!

A Fab New 'Do

In between preparing for the Forever 21 Thanksgiving Party, I got to sneak in a haircutting/styling session with my fave stylist, Louis Kee :D   It's been more than 8 months since I last saw him.  I needed a fab new 'do for the event last Saturday night.


I love it that his salon has Wi-Fi—weeee ;)

This is me, after Louis cut my hair.  I never tell Louis what kind of hairstyle I want exactly, just that I want to grow my hair long now...  So, he just gave me volume and layers.  My hair is just too limped now...

Wasn't able to take a photo with my blowdried and styled hair.  
Will post pics from the party in my next post, hopefully :D

*Louis Kee Salon is located at One McKinley Place, 25th Street corner 4th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig. Telephone number: 856-3388

Our Little Man

Got little J some PJ's last week, and had them washed.  
It was only last Friday that he got to wear his very first set of PJ's :D








Our baby is now a little man in his cute sleepwear :D
We only got him 7 sets of PJ's, but it seems we might have to buy more if he changes PJ's every night.  Do you think they're only good for one night?  I wear mine for a few nights before I have them washed, but maybe for babies like little J, we should be a bit more careful.  What do you think?

Wish: JJ Models

PFW Opening Day was a memorable one, because of the Children's Fashion Show by SM that I attended. Here's the press kit that I got:

It's a pop-up card that describes the collection:

All the kids were given a coupon and a Bizu freebie, too :)

The fashion show comprised of about 50 models, with more than 100 children watching the show.  Imagine all of them sitting quietly as they watched the show.   They obviously enjoyed it as much as the adults did :)  To view a clip and photos of the show, and find out who did the finale, click on this link  


Now, my goal in the next 3-5 years: how to get little J to be part of the show.  I was a child model back in the early '90s.  I sure wish little J can follow in my foot steps... even for just one project hihi... :)
