My Saturdays are usually reserved for me-time, or friends bonding. I was all set to meet up with friends last Saturday when an invitation for a BDJ Box Soiree came in to my inbox. It has been a while the last time I went to a BDJ event, so I thought I would go. Plus, the invite said that there will be a Nail Workshop! I thought it would be nice to learn more about nail polish techniques, and nail art designs.
I arrived in Contis, Greenbelt with Ria Hazel. This girl is so into nail art lately that she seems to change designs every other day.
I was thinking I wouldn’t have time to create designs because I still needed to run to my favorite mall (Robinson’s Magnolia, that is!) to meet with friends. I thought could work with the Revlon Nail Kit at home and I could totally be messy!
Click Read More to know why I am jealous! Huhh huhh…
Huhh.. huh.. I was disappointed. This is not the first time I did not get a loot from an event. There are even instances when I forget to get token/loots from events (and life goes on). But, I realized it was a different story to see girls get excited about their loot! This was the first time I felt really disappointed. Probably because I also feel for the bellas who signed up and didn’t get to bring home a nail kit (sorry, I am ranting).
BDJ and Revlon gave us (there were 8 of us) make-up palette as a gift since we didn’t get a Revlon nail kit.
I still love Belle De Jour, and I hope it will be a learning experience for the other event organizers. One thing I learned from my stint in helping the Organizational Dev Team (of my previous employer), the success of an event is not measured by the number of attendees, but the lasting impression it creates to the attendees. If your guests talk positively about your event/brand and you influence them to influence others, you made a great impact. When I say “talk positively”, (of course) it is not all about the swag and loot, but the total experience.
Anyway, I am hoping the new Revlon Nail Polishes will be available soon in the market so I can try them out.
PS. I send a feedback to BDJ team regarding this, and I am happy that they took the feedback positively. 🙂
