HANG TEN Special Event

Hang Ten organized a blogger's event last Sunday, Oct. 9 at Hang Ten, Mall of Asia. What's very Special about this event is that the bloggers are paired with their lucky readers! Making it twice the fun!

Guess what? I got picked by my favorite blogger Paxie.:) I feel so lucky for getting picked! I only knew about it like Saturday morning and I have to plan for outfit and stuffs. I wasn't yet sure if I can go (I'm not yet nagpapaalam. Hihi!) I moved heaven and earth to be able to go! JK! But it was hard telling it to my mom (strict parents). They agreed if they can accompany me to MOA. What is compromise?! :)

I came there at exactly 2 because of excitement!:) Here are some pictures.
Beautiful display

Love the suitcases

The program started around 2:30 pm with Mr. Kyle's interesting history of Hang Ten and the launch of the winning window display.

We had a fun ice breaking game, the Human Bingo! Blogger David Guison won the game. After that, we had the styling game! I'm excited for this because Ms. Paxie is really a talented stylist. Sisiw! The bloggers drew lots of what mannequins to take, we got a guy mannequin. It was a challenge since Ms. Paxie never styled a guy mannequin before but as competitive as we are, we can do this! :)

Here's our poging Mannequin!
Our team!

Me with another inspiring blogger, Melai Entuna
For the event, I wore a skirt used as a tube, a brown belt, my denim vest, leggings and my forever black pumps. The bloggers described it as "boho," I'll research on that. :)

After styling, we had cocktails. Yum! Yum!

Reunion of UPD ACLE people 
They are really funny! They joked each other around. Paxie and Melai joked about Nikki's and Ann's fierce outfits. What's super nice about it is that they remembered me! :)) They knew that I was the girl from ACLE. I love it! Thank you guys, that means so much to me. :D

Ann, me, Nikki

 Before Ms. Paxie and I parted, I gave her my first ever creation! This.

For a very inspiring Blogger, Paxie

Thank you so much for Hang Ten for organizing the event and the Ms. Paxie for picking me as her partner. I hope you liked the pouch! See you!

RENEGADE: First AdHoc Event Ever

RENEGADE. UP Ecosoc's AdHoc Party was held last Sept. 23 as celebration of the organization's 53rd anniversary. It was held at One Esplanade, near MOA, with drinks sponsored by San Miguel Corp.

For the first time ever, I was permitted to attend a college party! (Yes, I have strict parents. I feel like a free woman!) Well before, it was my own prerogative not to attend college parties because I actually do not know what to expect there since I've never been to one before. But now, I didn't expect everything! It was kinda wild for me. Don't get me wrong, I love the music and the dancing. But people really get wild with a drink in their hands. Not to mention the people they're with. REALLY WILDDDDD!!

Anyway, I had fun with my dates. ;) Thank you so much to Pers and Joby! Especially to Joby, without whom I'll not be able to go. :)

But first, my outfit shot.

Party dress (Cinderella), black and white belts (thrifted),  black pumps (GIbi), trinket (gift), amulet necklace (gift),
 ring (thrifted), earrings (thrifted), fedora hat (bought from a friend), denim pouch (Carmi's ;) )
I have this dress for like forever. I have used it for debuts already. But I really wasn't prepared for the party because I only asked my mom if I could go the previous day. No time to look for clothes! Anyway, I was inspired by a mannequin in SM with layering of belts. So, to reinvent my look, I used black and white belt. La lang, breaker lang. And some accessories I received as gifts. I also have those black pumps since forever. They're very useful like I have worn them from formal affairs to casual events (even to Church). I'll beef up my  closet soon (hopefully!). I'm reading Paula Reed's Style Clinic (I got this from Ms. Aisa's blog). It has helped me sort out actually. Anyway, my fave piece is the fedora hat! It helped focus attention on my face not on my dress. I think I quite stood out because of the hat. Many people noticed it. :)

The first and last thing we did at the party... PHOTOBOOTH!!                                        

Washroom pictures :))

Party people!
 After going to RENEGADE, we went to Tides along Timog Ave. to eat and drink more. We were taken here by Joby's Aunt for their well known Squeeze me! It was not bad at all. I'm not a drinker, I only drank a shot of cocktail at the party. I didn't even like it that much. But the Squeeze me, was super nice! It only tastes like Slurpee of 7-11. Also, their cheesy potato is superb! We saw K Brosas there too! So pretty in person.

Thank you Tita Lea for bringing us here!
Good times! Next time, dears!
