Vanity is my favorite sin

The original plan was to eat out and have dessert with my blogfriend Jessica as it was the first time we met personally. Little did I know I would get more than what I bargained for.

My soul sister Ana invited me to the Vanity Vanity, What Art Thou? event held at the SM North EDSA Sky Dome last Friday, October 1. I thought it would be a great bonding activity for Jess and me so we made adjustments to go to SM instead (which is just across TriNoma where Jess and I were supposed to meet).


Dubbed as the ultimate vanity fair, the three-day event organized by PMP Communications showcased booths dedicated to the pursuit of beauty, health and wellness, lifestyle, and of course - vanity. Meanwhile, the programme last Friday was more focused on the - as what the host said - bloggers who are "celebrities in their own right." It felt so cool, meeting fashion and beauty bloggers I follow.

A representative from John Robert Powers gave a mini-workshop on how best we can present ourselves to others
And representatives from The Body Shop discussed their new organic haircare line and conducted a short makeup  tutorial onstage
Liz also gave a short talk about blogging

Too bad Jess had to leave early because she had other plans with her friends. It's okay though as we made plans to meet again after I come home from my trip.

I met Ava, one of Ana's close blogfriends. Such a sweet and pretty girl :)
I also had a chat with new friend Denise :)
We also had a Human Word Factory game on the stage(!) after introducing ourselves to the audience
Would you believe that all these are freebies from the event?
Laden with these paperbags, I walked to TriNoma (in the rain, on my heels) to have a quick yogurt fix with Mich and Poly. Nothing beats dessert with close girl friends :)

I went home tired and spent but happy It was certainly fun to be recognized as a blogger covering an event; being with close friends while doing it makes it even more awesome! I am so thankful of my schedule because it allows me to attend functions like this.

Would you want to know what the loot bags contain?

All these! Thanks to the organizers and sponsors :)
But then, I might have gotten lots of freebies and swag, but the most special gift of the day came from Jessica.

She gave me a journal and a set of headband and hairclips, wrapped in beautiful paper and enclosed with a sweet note ♥
Thanks again Jess! I can't wait for us to meet again! ;D

Sooo, I officially declare October as a month of possibilities! It has been just four days since the month started and already my calendar has been abuzz with a flurry of activities and I can't wait to share them all with you. It's going to be a busy week for my blog! ;)
