8th Edition of the Belle De Jour Power Planner has finally arrived!

by - Wednesday, October 16, 2013

And it was indeed a Sunny day for all the Bellas who came to the BDJ Fair 2013 last October 13, 2013 at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall! Like what is said on the poster below, the entrance to the fair is free but only pre-registered girls get to attend the different talks!

Here are the different speakers with their topics during the BDJ Fair. Later, i'll share with you some of the learning that I got from my chosen talks! :)

There is a VIP Charity Pass available during the event. Bellas get to experience Bungee Jumping, Wall Climbing, get a loot bag, get a chance to win at the raffle draws, get free coffee or tea and get their tarot reading for just a hundred pesos! How cool! :) But you know what's cooler? 100% of the proceeds go to BDJ's chosen charity. This proves to show that BDJ empowers women not only through their fashion and beauty sense, but in the innate aspects as well. #ProudBellaMoment   

So here is the map to the BDJ Fair 2013 #MakeItHappen at SM Mall of Asia Music Hall. So happy to see different sponsors supportive to BDJ! You truly know how to make a Bella happy! :)

So my first stop was on the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf booth to grab my cup of coffee! :)  

Friends, I like to tell you how much I am into coffees! Especially frappes. :) Please do bear that in mind. Hahaha!

Perks of the VIP Charity Pass bearer! :)

Subic Grand Seas Resort is also there to support the BDJ Fair. And guys, they're giving free room accommodations if you are lucky enough. Awesome!

Physiogel Hypoallergenic is also giving away free samples for girls to try out!

Zenzest also has a game on their booth. Shoot the three hoop rings and you'll surely score a 10 ml fragrance of your choice. :)

I am so happy to see one of my favorite boutiques Trilogy! They had different snapbacks and shirts available for everyone.

Miss Cup Stacking? Flipsters offered a Cup Stacking Competition between you and your chosen partner. Whoever wins gets the 200php off GC on Flipsters products.

At the The Ramp Crossings booth, three outfits were displayed and everyone gets to guess how much their chosen outfit. Whoever gets the closest wins GCs! :)

Here is the Tarot Reading during the event. I'm so excited because this will be the first time that i'll be trying Tarot Reading. :)

DC Shoes and Sharpie offered free Shoe Designing Workshop to lucky Bellas who won on their previous shoe designing contest over at Facebook. Lucky!!

The Cream Factory and Saforelle also prepared different games with fabulous prizes!

For this one, you need to guess the scent of the different Bath Creams. I know what you are thinking right now. This really is a tough game. :)

Here is the Saforelle Feminine Wash. This will be available in the Philippines very soon. Lucky Bellas get to score Saforelle during the games. :)

DC Shoes has a game on their booth called "Shoe-Pong". Like in Beer Pong, you need to shoot the pingpong balls to the three different shoes at a given limit. If you made it, you get to have your own pair of DC Shoes! :)

Free Skin Analysis over at Dermclinic!

Awesome staffs over at the SM Parisian Booth!

You get to like their facebook page and you'll be given a chance to pick a prize over this fish bowl. 

Luckily, I get to have my own pair of SM Parisian. What makes it so special is that the shoes that they gave me is a part of KC Concepcion's endorsed shoes that will be released on November!

SM Parisian bags and shoes are also sold during the event!

Tokyo Posh is offering free hair styling over at their booth! :)

Canmake is offering free makeup application to everyone who wants to try out Canmake products. :)

I just found out recently that Tricia Gosingtian is their endorser. Perfect girl for the makeup brand! :)

Make your own arm candy in Roxy's DIY Corner! :)

If you're picture friendly, go to Wacoal's photo booth and have your picture with your besties!

Like what I've said a while ago, loot bags were given to Bellas who availed the VIP Charity Pass. ;)

THIS! I regret not trying the Bungee Jump because of the long line. :(( I do hope that BDJ repeats to have this activity on other BDJ events. 

Jasmine Mendiola was the host of this day's event. :) Very bubbly and loud.

I am so happy to see Myrza Sison! :) For those who don't know this lady, she is the Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan Philippines. I am an avid reader of Cosmopolitan and I am very amazed of how the magazine imparts important learning to ladies out there. 

This is the the message that hit me the most. I've always wanted to see the world and I just got inspired by all the pictures of Myrza at different places. Truly a wanderlust! :)

Now for my chosen talk, the first talk that i've been to was in Jill Ngo's Get Fit and Be Empowered!

I am not very particular with her until this day. All this time, I don't know that she is the very graceful belly dancer that I've been seeing in different shows in the television.

She taught us the importance of getting fit and even gave an example of Zumba and Belly Dancing. I am so happy because all the bella in the talk are very game when it comes to learning Jill's dance steps. :)

For my next talk, here is Xeng Zulueta with her talk "Be your own kind of Beautiful". I just noticed how beautiful she is and the way she carries herself, BAMM! :)

This is my most cherished advice from her. "Love Yourself. Smile, it's the best makeup in the world." Smile comes naturally and is well appreciated by everyone who gets to see it. :)

Sadly, this fair has to end. But Bellas won't be leaving without telling what they want to happen for 2014. :)

Know what I wanna make happen in 2014, take a look below! ;)
