The Vanity Fair is the second event I co-organized this year. It was stressful but totally worth it of course! I got to hang out with the beauty and fashion bloggers I see in other events. Better yet, I got to bond with new young 'uns like Krissy, Ava, and Ana! I was also happy to see Karl and Nicole (of Soule Phenomenon) - such a chic duo. I think that Vanity Fair proved that we have a vibrant local blogging community in the beauty and fashion niche.
So what was the event about anyway? Held last Friday at SM North EDSA Skydome, it was a health and beauty expo featuring brands like The Body Shop, The Face Shop, Organique Acai Berry, Philips hair and body tools, and the like. There was a special segment exclusively for bloggers where they participated in a game, a short essay writing contest, and listened to talks held by a rep from John Robert Powers (poise and posture), The Body Shop (makeup tips), and me (blogging).
Enough talking and on with the pictures!

The Body Shop also did makeovers
Philips' booth full of girls who want their hair done
Most of the stuff at 40% off
SeriAsia skincare. I saw one of their ads in last month's Metro magazine!
Lyf's booth full of skin and body care goodies
Organique Acai Berry tastes good (according to Kira!). It's expensive though. One bottle is P850 I believe. Great for health buffs.
Parang beauty contest lang! Alex, Kira, Bestie (with her awesome Gold Dot bag!), Lyn
I'm a media partner yay! So my logo is on the tarps and ads! :D
