BDJ Box Beauty Soiree: Ready, Set, Gorgeous with Covergirl!

10 Feb

I was invited by the BDJ Box Team to attend their first ever BDJ Box Beauty Soiree. I have attended all the BDJ Box Beauty Socials and I felt that I just couldn’t pass this one out. Besides, I felt I was lucky to be invited.

It was a well attended event and I got to meet beauty bloggers like Ms. Donna of My Lucid Intervals, Celine of Product Arena and Kc of Kikay Si Kat ( who happens to be a schoolmate back in preschool!)

The event was sponsored by Covergirl Philippines. The brand recently released a new line named Ready Set Gorgeous. This line has 3 products — foundation (Php 495) , powder (Php 345) , and concealer (Php 395). Among these, other Covergirl items were used for the demonstration of Say.

The event was held last February 1 in The Open Space, Jupiter St. in Makati. It was an intimate gathering of makeup lovers. Say Tioco Artillero, a Filipina youtube guru, demonstrated a fresh makeup look using Covergirl products. I got to be seated in table 2, where I met new friends, Patty and Lyzelle! Hey bellas!

I know this is a late post because it is already mid-January of 2015, but hey, I am still going to push this. I received my December BDJ Box (Covergirl Exclusive box) last month. I wasn’t really expecting any collaboration with the December BDJ Box so I was left in awe when there was a hint in facebook that it’s going to be an exclusive box. December 2013 was a Max Factor exclusive box and I am so happy that the December 2014 was a Covergirl exclusive box!

Bidding 2014 Goodbye…

30 Dec

I know I have been not posting for a long time because A) I had a lot of service in our parish B) work needs to be prioritized because of the preparation for exams and programs and C) the laptop I had been using for 2 years crashed and EVERYTHING saved there are deleted..! Most files are important, especially my thesis. :(

I still can’t get over the fact that all the photos I took are gone. I usually take A LOT of pictures of ALL the products I have and just edit and watermark it when I am ready to write a review for it. BUT now, I have to start anew… I actually don’t know how to start, where to begin and what to do. I am afraid to insert my memory card in the laptop and have the pictures deleted because of its reformatted state. I wanted to join the BDJ box challenges, but I was so preoccupied and can’t even start.

Oh well, this incident reminded me that everything else can change in just a snap, and only God and His words will remain. I realized that all things will surpass and if ever I die in the future, I can’t bring those files with me. I also realized that I should have uploaded it in my email or dropbox so I will have a backup file. I learned the hard way.

Anyway, enough of my bitterness.

I actually have a lot to be thankful for this 2014. This was a GREAT year for me and my family. A lot of milestones happened this year… let me mention them…

  • I finished my thesis and graduated from my Masters degree
  • I was able to be part of LECCOM Ministry of NSOLL again
  • We were able to move to a new house, still renting but hey, we did not bring my parents’ old stuff
  • I was able to get a job (after 3 years of being a fulltime MOM)
  • Our daughter is top 1 for the 1st and 2nd quarters ( I hope she maintains it)
  • Our daughter had her first field trip!
  • Hubby got promoted
  • Hubby was able to pass an exam and take another one (results will be out January 16, 2015)
  • I was surprised by hubby with a new car ( our first!)
  • I was not admitted for any serious illness though I had pittyriasis rosea and lumbar pain/muscle spasms early first quarter of the year
  • I learned to bake!
  • I was entrusted to transcribe and write for the website of NSOLL.
  • My dad was given an early retirement and that their house was already fully paid.

Quite a list, right? So before I bid 2014 goodbye, I reminisced the good and bad experiences and all the lessons that go with them. I just can’t help but feel thankful of all HIS blessings for me and my loved ones. For every little thing that has happened, I thank HIM, I praise HIM and I love HIM even more. I will serve Him with all my heart, all my mind and all my soul.

I pray that the worst of 2015 will be BETTER than the best of 2014.

Happy New Year!

This lotion is a nice product one should not miss! It has nice packaging, nice quality, nice floral powdery scent, and the instant fairness is great! Love the spf and the moisturizing properties too. It is also handy and easy to be brought anywhere.
