BDJ Passion Series: Summer Creations

Being a Bella opens you up to fun and exciting activities, that is why I love being a part of the BDJ Community. This summer they’ve prepared different activities and workshops for us Bellas to enjoy.

With the theme BDJ Passion Series: Summer Creations, Bellas got a chance to make their own parfait at Red Mango Katipunan last May 23. I am so thrilled because I personally love Red Mango especially their Fro-Yo. Red Mango started in 2002 at South Korea but opened their first branch in the Philippines in 2009 at TriNoma. Now they have a total of 9 branches here in the Philippines.

Yogurt is good for our digestion. It also have that ice-cream like feels but is much healthier so it is good for health conscious people. People who are lactose intolerant can also enjoy this.
Ms. Beam Mariano from http://shopartwine.com/ taught us the do’s and don’ts on how to put the toppings on our parfait since we want that picture perfect shot for instagram. We all love to take selfies of our food before eating it, right?

BDJ Fair 2014: #LiveitUp

Belle de Jour held their annual BDJ Fair at SM MOA Music Hall last Sunday with the theme, Live it Up! Dance to the Beat of your Dreams. It is not exactly a dance party thingy if that’s what you’re thinking. It is a fair where Bellas get to meet new friends, enjoy the #PerksofBeingaBella (booths, lootbags and activities) and attend to inspiring talks. Yes all in one fair! Actually this is my first time to attend such fair, but definitely not my last. Here are some of my experiences from the said fair. ❤

Few weeks back before the fair, I pre-register through email to be a VIP member. By that you will get a VIP pass during the fair and pay Php 100. Proceed will go a long way of helping Sulong Kabataang Romblomanon, Inc and Move MNL. Having fun while helping? That’s hitting two birds in one stone right? 🙂

The first three booths I went to was Wacoal, Benefit and TGIF. Wacoal booth prepared some word games which I totally suck that’s why I only got a folder from them. Same as with the Benefit’s Lemon Toss Game. TGIF booth gave us mocktails (its non-alcoholic :P).

Well I I really got lucky from the next two booths I went to. In Yosi Samra, I receive a 20% off discount coupon. And in Parisian booth I won in their number game these to-die-for heels. ❤ Downside, only size 40 is available and I’m size 36! :((((:

Free make-over from Pond’s booth. Status Hair Salon and Davines booths have free hair styling. Got my curls from status hair salon. Revlon was one of the blockbuster booths there because of its free nail art service. 🙂

I got a reservation to Tricia Gosingtian’s talk, Create Your Own #BeautifulStory. She’s really pretty and I am amazed on how she started behind the camera to being one of the famous bloggers in the Philippines. 🙂

Other booths there are really generous. You will just go there, like their page on facebook, then they will give you a token. Like in Lenovo where they give me a notepad and set of ballpens. Some requires you to take a selfie, upload it on facebook with their hashtags then win a prize. All in all it was an awesome experience. Here are some of the things from my loot bag and samples I got to take home from the fair. 🙂

Free samples from Godiva, Dial, Ponds, Shu Uemura and Benefit Cosmetics. Coupons from Ace Water Spa, Italliani’s, Mister Donut, Krazy Garlik and Status Hair Salon.
