Sunday, May 26, 2013 Launch


I was very fortunate to have been invited to the launch of BeautyBook, an online source of beauty tips and fashion advice from experts. There, you can find beauty regimens, fashion forward advice, and makeup trends for all types of women. Tried-and-tested beauty products provided on the site would come in useful for those who are looking for something new to add to their list of beauty essentials.

Every month, BeautyBook invites online experts to give you the best insights in beauty and fashion. It covers hair care (Hair Story), skin care (Skin Ever After), fashion and makeup (Magic Glam), and a listing of the best beauty bargains (The Royal Treatment). Check it out for yourself -

The launch was held at Sala Bistro at Greenbelt 3 and was hosted by the gorgeous Laica Turingan. They invited makeup artist Ning to give us an overview of this season's fashion and makeup trends. She did a short makeup demo on my friend Phya showing us a natural daytime look. While in the middle of a conversation, I was so surprised when I was called to be the model for the hair styling demonstration. Ning showed us how to achieve beach waves without using intense heat or chemicals by simply twisting the hair and making it into a bun. The launch really raised my expectations of the site and guess what, it didn't disappoint. :)

Last week, I attended a food tasting event at Lights of Love Events Place located at Quezon City and went to Shangrila Plaza Mall soon after to attend the Marks and Spencer Spring/Summer 2013 Fashion Show. The show featured lots of prints and vibrant colors in blue, green, and red. For menswear, swim shorts, lightweight jerseys and design tees were brought in unusual yet striking combinations of geranium, aqua, pink fizz, dark jade, and hyacinth. Collections for womenswear, on the other hand, included M&S Woman, Autograph, Classic, Per una, Indigo collection and Limited collection. Most were classic staples such as jeans, maxi dresses and knitwear in floral, tropical and tribal prints.

On to my outfit: this dress reminds me of summer because of the bright colors. I bought this at a bazaar last December and thought that this would be the perfect time to wear it. I was trying to pull off a polished look so I chose to wear less accessories and let my dress do all the talking. What do you think of my outfit? :)

Thanks to Marks and Spencer and Nuffnang Philippines for having me at the event!
