When I left my job, and focused on blogging/writing and sharing stories, I thought I would have all the time in the world. I can do the things that I want, and dismiss the ones that would not give value to my personal growth. It didn’t occur to me that after just a few months, I would start working again – oftentimes more than 40 hours in a week. Clients/partners and brands are now my bosses (looks like I got more than 1 boss now!). But the beauty of this affair is that – I am much happier.
Yesterday was another “normal” day. I went to an event – the BDJ Box Beauty Social! But it was more than a normal day when I got home because of different realizations..
Sharing with you what you have missed..
Most of the brands which participated in the BDJ Beauty Social were makeup brands who setup makeover booths. Some even conducted free makeup tutorials.
Since I got VIP pass, I got to sat down to the rest of the talks. Nicole Anderson shared about hair care and styling. One tip I learned – you can mix a few drops of conditioner and water and pour it in a hair spray. Bring it in your bag and spritz for some instant hair shine! I super love how fun and chic this girl is!
The last talk was all about achieving and maintaining Blemish-Free Skin. Of course, all bellas get to bring home a loot bag 😉
BDJ Box #CampGorgeous’ loot was not as grand as the previous ones – BUT, I still enjoyed my time at the Beauty Social because I got to bring my friends/readers and met some of my readers!
It was awesome to actually spend time with friends (former colleagues) that I have not seen for a while, and I am so glad that we could just be totally ourselves and be kikay! I was also truly touched to meet some of my readers who said that they love reading my blog, and some even shared that they try (and buy) the products because they have seen them in this site. BIG THANK YOU!!!
Sharing some pictures.. (I lost the ones taken from my iPAD.. but sending loves and hellos to Kim, Rose, Eddy!)
It was truly a fun day! A freezing windy night when we left the venue. We had a fun dinner at Magnolia House. Can I just say, I love everything at the Magnolia House? I had the Beef Salpicao and it was heaven on Earth! Too bad I missed the other two girls – Trishia and Larae (she’s nursing her daughter who is confined in the hospital due to pneumonia). Sad that she didn’t get to join us. Makes me think about the country’s healthcare system. I wish we have something like nchealthagency.com.
Anyway, see you at the next BDJ Box event!
Congratulations again BDJ Box, BDJ Team and Darlyn! Continue inspiring the bellas and helping brands reach out to the right market 🙂
