     Before the year ends in just a couple of hours, I want to say THANK YOU 2012 for making my life full of surprises! I experienced ups and downs and these experiences made me realize that there's a lot of things to enjoy even if you have problems. now I believe in the saying HABANG BUHAY MAY PAG-ASA (As long as you are alive there is hope). I lose hope and I doubted but there's more important things that I have to thank for. Even though we experienced "loss" in many ways, our family is still lucky and blessed. Thank you so much to my family, relatives, friends and friends from the blogosphere for all the warm wishes, kind words and support!!!

     So this coming new year, good vibes and more inspiration, good health and prosperity to all :D

Cheers to the Good Times!~

Random Winnings

Sunday, December 30, 2012

     Hi dearies! My apologies for not posting lately. I'm still alive and kicking :D Been very busy with family and some personal stuff. I want to catch up on my backlogs and make a new review after new year but not sure if I can make it :( Hope you can still find time to read my posts even though haven't posted a decent one. Oh by the way, January is my birth month so there will be another giveaway coming next month. 

     I just want to share my overdue giveaway winnings since the contests that I joined happened a few months ago. If you follow me on twitter I'm sure you've read my rant about the giveaway prize that took almost 6 months before it reached our doorsteps. Whew! Will not make blabber about it, just scroll down and click the photos or the links if you wanna follow blogs I'm following so that you can also join their giveaways :))) 

     I won a NAVA see through bag and a Bench perfume from Alyssa Lapid's June Birthday giveaway but I don't know what happened to the Bench perfume because I received 2 Status Magazine instead.

Thank you for the note Alyssa :)
     Remember my post about the makeup workshop that I attended? After the workshop, Kanebo was very generous and had a raffle of their products including a solid soap, skincare set and a gorgeous eyeshadow palette. I was not expecting to win since this product was raffled last. 

Kikay Trekkie's Half-off the price for Radiant Beauty Makeup Workshop by Kanebo and Suzzane Tan
Shade is 03 Mauve pink
Very classy packaging!!!
Hello gorgeous :) But for unfortunately, I already sold this palette when we needed extra money for my father's dialysis. I hope this is not a big issue since this was my prize- I can do whatever I want and this did NOT came from the products sent by the company to review and or from press kits.
     And lastly this very elegant nail file came from Czech Republic!!! I won this from Chic and Sassy Homemakers Mont Bleu Giveaway! This is something new for me because it's not an ordinary nail file. It is made from glass and has the unique design- SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS.

Chic and Sassy Homemaker's MONT BLEU Giveaway

L- Travel size glass nail file
R- Nail File with Swarovski Crystals
     The nail file is very gorgeous that I'm just planning to display it. I don't want to use this coz I'm afraid that I will misplace the stones unconsciously while filing my nails. Haha! The mini nail file is very cuteee! Small enough to place inside my pocket or inside my makeup pouch.

     That's all for now. Thank you so much to these lovely bloggers for having awesome giveaways. 

Good Times!~

Guinness Book of World Records Experience #TheNewGloriettaVibe

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

     I'm really shy to blog about this once in a lifetime event that I experienced last Thursday, November 29. Since this I think will really happen once, documenting my photos is the best way to keep it. I'll just share a short story of what happened during the Ayala Malls' attempt to break a fashion world record. But before I proceed, I want to thank my sister Krystel for gathering all the votes during the online voting period. She made this photo AVA approved!

     Walking the runway was not easy for me. The dry run and all preparations was very tiring and I just have to deal with it. I only had 3 hours of sleep prior to the event and I felt very tired during the rehearsal and show proper. I was under the brand Plains and Prints. I love the dress that I wore during the fashion show. It's very comfy to wear, chic and elegant and just add an accessory or two then it screams fashion! Wasn't able to take photos before the show started because I forgot my camera which was in my bag that I left at Plains and Prints boutique. All photos here were taken after. So pardon my awkward poses and the haggard look :P

     I will not blabber too much here. I'm sure ya'll have seen photos from other models, bloggers and friends who walked the runway. I also want to dedicate this post to my sisters who patiently waited for me even though there were some misunderstanding among the 3 of us during the event. Hehehe! Thank you Kc and Krystal, I love you both! ^_^

     Many thanks to Ms. Sai Sayson-Montes for doing my gorg makeup. She did all the makeup of her fashion blogger friends who also took part in the runway and with her skills, that's really superb. Too bad, we don't have photos of before and after because she's really a busy prettifying us and I don't want to disturb her so that she can concentrate on her work. 

     I also saw fashion bloggers who also walked the runway and had photo op with them too :D Thank you so much! Twas great seeing these fashion icons. I really love their styles, truly an inspiration!

I also met new friends and fashion bloggers- thank you so much for the kwentos and chikahan and keeping me company~will not mention names because I have this alzheimer's disease thingy (makakalimutin) when it comes to names. If you're reading this please drop a comment~you know who you are!

Preserving Mankind with Kojiesan Men

Saturday, September 22, 2012

     What's your type of guy? I've been asked this question many times before and I always replied with the same answers- responsible, loyal, trustworthy, and kind. I always answer this question with a description of his personality rather than what is manly. According to wiki.com Manly is an adjective used to describe the physical and psychological characteristics of individuals traditionally associated with men such as courage and strength. I can't remember if there was a time that I answered the question above with something related to his physical attributes like tall, dark, and handsome. 

     I guess that the concept of manliness has changed over time. I knew some girls who choose a guy with what is physically satisfying to them. I'm not against them and I think manliness should be an equal balance of the physical, mental, social, and spiritual aspects. He must be physically fit by engaging in a healthy lifestyle, mentally capable and mature enough to handle all types of stress, socially inclined so that he can share his views thus learning from them, and doesn't neglect his personal growth through religious/spiritual way of life.
