Gorgeous Marianne Rivera look alike, Angela Nepomuceno, worked on my makeup. Thanks sweetie! It was great catching up with you! Kulang ang isang oras sa atin 🙂 Hahaha!
I rounded up my gorgeous girlfriends to support me–and I was so happy they made time for this launch to think all of them are sooooo IN DEMAND with so many bookings left and right (yesss big time mga ‘to)!!! But when I told them that part of the proceeds of these shoes would go to CENEP, they all cleared their scheds for that afternoon! These girls are my friends because they have hearts of gold! Awwww love!:)
The girls posing in our Coral Couture dresses. Well done, Jamie Ramos!
It’s so nice to catch up with friends and to somehow report to one another about your different milestones. Nicole just gave birth a few months ago and did a total Megan Fox on us by trimming down all that baby weight in an instant (I HATE YOU BY THE WAY!!!). I love how she has this newfound wisdom as a mommy, she’s always been very sensible and practical–but she seems to be even “wiser” now that she’s taking care of Alonzo. Karen and Cesca are both enjoying new romances (yiheeeeee!!!!) and that explains that BIG smiles plastered on their faces these days. Rica is happily married to one of the coolest dudes I know, Joseph, and in a lot of ways Pat and I see them as role models. Kelly and I have a LOT in common—we got married just a month apart, both clueless about marriage, both not so good in the kitchen, but both loving the whole adjustment. I could talk to Kelly for hours and never get bored, it’s so refreshing to have someone who understands all these newlywed issues! Hahaha 🙂
We chose a select group of influential bloggers and friends from the media to join us for a very chill afternoon of pampering at Pink Me Up Beauty Nail and Dry Bar in Shaw Boulevard! Side note, I absolutely love this place 🙂 Their interiors are so inviting and it’s perfect for little girly affairs like bridal showers, birthday parties, etc. We wanted our guests to just have a “little breather” from their daily grinds so we didn’t have a set program–we just basically chatted with each one about our line. Guests were treated to mani-pedis by Orly at Pink Me Up, a special makeup session by MUD Manila, customized milk teas by My Serendipitea, and loads of goodies from Watsons!
My BFF Alessa had back to back meetings that day but she “escaped” for a bit just to show her support! Thank you Zexy! I’m so glad mommy and close friend Stella also came to join us for some chikahan 🙂 Rica and Stella were “seatmates” at my Enderun cooking class last April, so they were ecstatic to see each other again! Haha 🙂 It was also great to have Janna Simpao of Bride and Breakfast at our event!
My friends turned Celebracion ambassadors (for the day!) raved about how comfy their shoes were—and that was a BIG HOORAY moment for me, Jackie and Kaye! The whole goal of this love project was to provide shoes that were elegant and timeless but at the same time super comfortable!:) I’m truly proud of these shoes–and extra proud of the fact that these shoes are “giving shoes” that will help a lot of young children in Tondo and Mandaluyong. Thank you CENEP for partnering with us for this!:)
