Fun Stuff & Updates

Hello, my sparkly loves! I’m just checking in to gab about some of the fun stuff that’s been happening lately and events that I’m looking forward to (you can win tickets to one of them since it’s Freebie Friday!). Check them out:

Numero Uno: Workshopping With My Gal Pals

I love learning new things and sharpening my skills. Instagram has been one of my pet projects lately (follow me via @beautyandsparkl). You’ll notice that I’ve been sticking to a white theme lately, because my blog coach (Hi, Martine!) has urged me to take better photos and is pushing me to improve my visuals. Have you noticed? Do you like it? I sure hope so—I’ve been working really hard at it!

That's my friend, Nikki! We were trying to be the smart & snooty classmates—but it obviously failed! We're just happy and bubbly always ;)

It’s always fun to be with your girls when you take a class. Nikki joined because she just launched a new clothing line for kiddos (visit Honeycombkids.com.ph to check out the cute outfits!). I already bought a shirt for my nephew, and wish I had a niece I could buy dresses for. Haha! Either way, this is going to save me a lot of time during Christmas! I think I’ll just order all my presents online and have it delivered to my friends’ houses.

That same week, my favorite mommy blogger had a workshop for Philosophy! Say hi to Frances of Topaz Mommy!

Like I’ve said before, there’s always something new to learn when it comes to beauty. Frances shared that one of the best skin tips she learned is to always use sunscreen every single day. Nikki’s is to drink lots of water because it’s the best beauty elixir. “Not drinking enough makes your skin look dull and dry,” she says. “Healthy skin is well-hydrated skin.”

Love my girls!

Haha, love my girls! We all used to work for Summit (F was EIC of OK!, Nikki was the  fashion & beauty editor for OK!, and I was the resident Cosmo girl!). I’ll always be grateful for that job because it brought fabulous friends into my life. <3

Numero Dos: Add Me On Snapchat!

Yes, I caved. I actually downloaded the app (twice) and deleted it (twice) months ago. My brain couldn’t understand (or rather, didn’t want to understand) what was going on. But after a few friends convinced me that it was a fun way to share behind-the-scenes stuff, I caved. So tune in via @beautyandsparkl for lots of unfiltered fun!

Follow me @beautyandsparkl!! Just posted my first Snap (?!). Haha, take a peek at how messy my desk really is by Friday!

So I hope you guys will follow me via @beautyandsparkl!! And if you’re a Snapchat pro, do help this tech-challenged lady out and show me some tricks to make it easier!

Numero Tres: Beauty Sale Alert!

Eye makeup is always fun to splurge on. The only downside is that it can expire quickly (mascara’s three months guys) and you have to throw it out if you get an eye infection or something (it happens). That’s why I’m super excited to start hoarding this October!

It's all about the eyes, right?? Haha! Goofing off with fellow beauty blogger, Marj!

Can you guys guess who’s having the huge sale? Here’s a clue: They’ve got it all. If you’re Pinoy, you know the answer to this—it’s SM Department Store! Head on over and to check out the eye makeup goodies that are on sale this month.

Numero Cuatro: Score Free Tickets To BDJ Veterans Night!

I remember when the first BDJ Power Planner came out. It was so new and exciting! They’re releasing the 10th edition this year, and to celebrate, they’re having a fun event at the Marco Polo Hotel in Ortigas on October 8. If you’re a hardcore Bella and want to celebrate with us, check out the poster below to find out how you can be a part of it.
