Experience CamSur with Havaianas (Part 1)


I got invited by Havaianas to participate on their Havaianas: A Dream Photoshoot by mangoRED as one of their bloggers! I've been working with this brand for years already and they never fail to surprise me! Aside from covering the shoot of mangoRED (read all about it here), Havaianas prepared an Experience CamSur with Havaianas event for the bloggers too!


A number of bloggers from areas of Calabarzon and Bicol got invited by Havaianas to participate in this 2-day all-fun event, and I am really overwhelmed to be part of this. I am really grateful to be one of the partners of Havaianas! They really know how to pamper their bloggers! Hihi. 


The event kicked off with an opening program at the chillax gazeebo near the pool of Avenue Plaza Hotel, where Havaianas checked us in. At the moment, we were already hungry and this was the first thing we saw, instead of the other people in there. Hahaha just kidding! 


Sweets in displayed in a very artsy way is hard to ignore!

But honestly, the first thing that caught our attention is how beautifully the gazeebo was set up! Sadly, my camera lens didn’t allow me to take full length photos! (I’m using 50mm f/1.8)

I immediately asked a staff who’s the artsy person behind all this. It was the production designer and stylist for the shoot, Mr. Ben Nasayao!

This really made me more excited to witness the photo shoots! Swear, every corner can pass for a pinterest or Tumblr artsy photo. lol

The event went on with meeting our other companion on the 2-day event, the couples, the awesome Havaianas people, the sponsors, the stylist, the make-up artist, hairstylist, and the mangoRED. A small talk, hi-hello from everybody, and of course, a message from the Havaianas Managing Director, the ever beautiful, Ms. Rica Buenaflor.

After the opening, it was time to eat out for lunch! Thanks to one of my fave restos in Bicol, Bigg’s Diner, for preparing our lunch! If I’m not mistaken, this dish is their yummy tenderloin tips.

After lunch, we headed back to the Avenue Plaza Hotel to freshen up. While waiting for the others to finish, some of us bloggers decided to play the fancy piano at the lobby. It’s been a while since I last played piano, so don’t be fooled with the photo above! Hahaha. After more bloggers joined in to play around with the piano, we got kicked off from playing it! Only legit pianists can play. Oops… Haha. Sorry for disturbing other guests! :3

After it, it’s time for the first photo shoot at the Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC)!
But, err.. Our CWC leg is so much fun it would require another blog post! Plus, this post is getting lengthy already, don’t you think? I'll keep you hanging for a little while! Stay tuned for more Experience Cam Sur with Havaianas posts in this blog! Next post will be all about our experience at the CWC! *wink*

Campbell's Plaid

Before anything else, I'd like to say that I hope everyone's doing fine here in the Philippines. Our country just got hit by the strong typhoon, Glenda. Our hometown got hit too, and I saw the aftermath of it just yesterday and it was frightening. I've been wide awake when this scary typhoon hit us, and I never stopped praying. We're so lucky that all of us stayed safe and dry, and I hope everyone's okay too. I hope my readers from the other countries (if I do have any) give a little help by praying too. It really does help.

 It's been a while since I last blog an outfit post! I've been trying new things like lifestyle and food blogging (which I apparently haven't blogged all yet), and I'm honestly enjoying it. Because, uhh.. FOOD! Haha just kidding. And apparently, I don't have a photographer here in my hometown, so yeah. Expect more of this background on my outfit posts in this blog.

This is what I wore on the grand opening of Bigg's Diner in our hometown. I got invited to participate as one of their bloggers. You can read all about it here.

I don't really know what to wear on these kind of events. I thought of wearing something blogger-ish casual, but not over the top. Striking but still comfy, so I can move around to cover the event. And here's what I've decided to wear!

A printed muscle tee from Romwe.

A pair of jeans, added a plaid button-down on my waist for a more detailed look. 

A pair of platform sneakers to give my outfit more attitude, but without sacrificing comfort! A very light houndstooth tote bag that can fit my life in it, including my humongous camera!

Kept my accessorizing simple with this Forever 21 holographic chain bracelet.

So what do you think of this outfit, guys? Yay or nay? Leave your comments below! ^_^


WHAT I WORE
Muscle Tee: Romwe
Jeans: Herbench
Plaid Button-down: Thrifted
Houndtooth Tote Bag: SM Dept Store
Bracelet: Forever 21
Platform Creepers: Thrifted

Candy Mag's It Girl!

It's the month of July! My birthday month! *u* Updating my blog after a more-than-a-week-long absence in this platform. Our WiFi connection has been down for a while (it felt like forever) and now that it's all fine, I'm up for updating my blog!

*TADA!*

A not so recent news, but hey! I got featured by candymag.com as their It Girl on the Web last month! *o* 

Isn't that amazeballs? I still got all the feels whenever I see my name and face on their site. I've been a fan of Candy Mag and candymag.com since I was in high school. And I remember that I used to actively participate in their forums and get a girl talk to other awesome girls around the country, and it was amazing. And what's more amazing than seeing yourself on the site you've been fangirling on since like forever? *eyes sparkle*

So yes, if you want to know more about my style, my best bargain buy, and why Tricia Gosingtian is my ultimate style icon, CLICK HERE to see my feature on candymag.com!
