Rain or Shine it’s time to Paint the Town Pink! The BDJ 2011 Fair / Launch!

A Tropical Cyclone Alert, Tropical Depression "KATRING", has been issued by PAGASA at 11:00 p.m. today, October 23, 2010 -- but we're still going! I, my sisters and all other soul-sister bellas will surely be there tomorrow at the Venice Piazza, McKinley Hill, Fort Area.

This is the FIRST TIME the 2011 BDJ Power Planner will be made available! And we'll get 20% off on our BDJ 2011 Planner – FOR THIS DAY ONLY!! 

We've decided to play an active role in the fair's festivities and pre-registered in several activities. 

I joined the scavenger hunt (and gets to be on the Blue Team) however, as each activity is limited to certain number of slots, I didn't get to be in the two other activities I signed-up for. *sniff* So I just hope blue team wins and that I'd still be able to join other activities! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Here's the line-up of the BDJ Fair activities: 

Are you the next Sherlock Holmes? Test your detective prowess as you look for pink treasures and complete certain activities all over the BDJ Fair and Venice Piazza. Meet new friends and challenge your knack for exploring and carrying out tasks! Don’t forget to bring your digital camera and comfortable shoes for this! Exciting prizes await the winners of this race!

Make your mark in the corporate world! Turn your workplace dilemmas into personal victories by using valuable tips by Jean Madrid, brand manager of Cornetto ice cream, on how to effectively market yourself. You’ll definitely get tips to help you rise above that corporate ladder and give you that long-awaited promotion in no time!

Find out how you can get that healthy, happy and ready-to-conquer-the-world look with one of L’oreal’s professional makeup artists. Be inspired with pink-based day and night makeup that will make you radiate with that sun-kissed and natural glow.

Get a chance to show off your styling prowess by creating looks that define Folded & Hung and Jellybean’s brand image. To join, all you have to do is register and submit a full length photo of yourself in an outfit that you styled with your contact no. 10 girls total will be chosen to create a day look for Jellybean (5 girls) and a night look for Folded & Hung (5 girls). Please specify which look you want to participate in. You must be available on Oct 16 (Sat) for the styling competition, and on Oct 24 (Sun) during the fair for the awarding. Accepted participants will be confirmed by Oct 14 (Thurs).

Here’s your chance to brave the runway! To be part of the 20 models for The Ramp, Crossings Fashion Show, you must answer in detail how you used your The Ramp coupon in your BDJ power planner (ex: I used it to buy an outfit for a date with a new boy I just met), and submit a full body photo with your vital stats (bust, waist and hips size) and contact no. Accepted models will be confirmed by October 20 (Wed).

Don't let the latest trends dictate how you should look! Donna Cuna-Pita, a professional fashion and image consultant, will share with you her trademark tips on how to wear pink in various ways. Fuse fashion with your own personal flair by exploring the color palette and taking risks with layering and fabric textures. At the end of it, you’ll be sure to be your own best style statement!

Anyways, even if I don’t get to join the rest of the activities, there'll be Free Fortune-Telling, Bungee Jumping, Photo booths, Free Facials from CLARITY, Free Body Fat Analysis and BP Checks from HEALTHWAY, Free Eye Refraction Services from EVISU EYEWEAR, and even shop (till we drop) on items from BDJ Lifestyle brands!

There should've been free cocktail drinks from THE BAR and SOBERCLUB as well, but in honour of the liquor ban for the October 25th local election – there won’t be any of that anymore – BUT BDJ says The Bar would give out gift packs instead. Yay!

We saved the date! :)

When: October 24, 2010, Sunday
Time: 2pm – 9pm
Venue: Venice Piazza, McKinley Hill, Fort Area
Entrance: Php 50 (for walk-ins); Php 30 (for pre-registered BDJ Girls) 

♥ 100% of Entrance Proceeds will go to Scuola della Guioia, a school for underprivileged kids in Tondo, Manila. ♥

For those who can't attend the BDJ Fair, but want to order the BDJ 2011 Power Planner, you can reserve your order by emailing IwantBDJ@belledejourpowerplanner.com. And keep checking BDJ's website and facebook account!

Keeping a planner has never been cool! 

I ♥ my BDJ!

Goin’ Bananas over Pan De Manila' s Banana Mon!

I love bananas! Okay, who doesn’t?!
Pan De Manila gave me another reason to love bananas all the more – BananaMons! They’re not cute little monsters in a ball, nor teens WhO tyPeZ lYKeS tH1s pfOuh – just good ol’ banana bread in the form of mamons.

Made from real lacatan bananas with sprinkle of brown sugar on top. I think those are panutsa bits, which I really love! YUM!!

Currently, bananamon's my happy food. Best paired with chim's own mix of coffee.

They also have the Banana Loaf meant for sharing. Same taste only bigger. You should definitely try 'em! :D

Most of us have a relationship with God; some of those relationships are closer than others. It doesn’t matter how close you are to Him or how far away He may seem, He is calling every one of us to deepen that relationship and He has nothing but LOVE waiting for us as we accept His call. There's always more of His love for everyone; all we have to do is yield ourselves more deeply to it and receive it.

For many Are Called, But Few Are Chosen - Matthew 22:14
Last May 15 and 16, 2010 - My life changed when I answered to God’s call, and I will be forever grateful. It could be your life this time. God is waiting for you. ♥

P.S. Thanks Rachel Brillante for the best description of what the LSS is all about :)

SEO Training for Bloggers - Chim was there!

Been waiting weeks for these and I can’t believe I'm late! For only a few minutes though - thank God!

I came home late last night, as we had to buy my godson a gift for his baptism this same day, October 2, 2010. Since I couldn’t be in two places at the same time – I had my hunny covered for me. Yup, he’s my superproxy. Haha!

Truth is, I had second thoughts of joining and attending - lots of events came up. IƱigo's  baptism, even our Post GSS # 4 (which I sadly wasn't able to attend *sniff*) - and although I do regret not being able to attend our post GSS, I'm actually pretty glad I did attend this training. I now have a project for myself - let's see how it turns out! :)
