The BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream; Therefore I Can

May 21, 2011 – This was my first BDJ Rendezvous and I was super excited to attend this event and meet new friends. Now, the date has arrived. The rendezvous was at the newly built Ace Water Spa in Pioneer and I have attended and super enjoyed the day. What happened you ask?

With the very cool Jazz Mendiola (host of the BDJ Rendezvous)
Freelance Makeup artist Jasmine Mendiola hosted the event. I super love her style today. It was kind of like a care-free boho chic look and her makeup is so fab. It looked glamorous and calm at the same time.

Belinda Reyes (GlaxoSmithKline Philippines)
First to speak was Ma. Belinda Reyes from GlaxoSmithKline Philippines; she talked about how to reach success in the corporate world. Below are some of the things she shared which I love the most:

In this first talk, I have learned that spending you extra well-earned money to something which will make you happy isn’t all that bad. I remembered once again the quote I got from Femalenetwork.com: “You don’t live to work; you work to live.”

Raffle! I got in to the first batch of raffle winner and I got goodies from Watsons Philippines! How the F did they know that Watsons is my sin place? I got a GrapeBella Revitalizing Shower GelWatsons Velvety Soft Tissues and the Lorys Deep Moisturizing Hair Cream.

After the raffle, we had games! There was this human bingo, this apple thingy which you have to keep between you and your partner’s face, the fashionista or something-like-that-game and the group game wherein the leader would have to memorize the names and adjectives by the members; BTW, I am GLAMOROUS GEL. Sadly, our group (Team Ohlala!) did not win; but what’s important is that we did have fun right?

Next would be lunch. There was this chicken recipe with coleslaw, a mini club house, a mini tuna burger and spaghetti with olives. It was red iced tea for drinks right? I didn’t taste it well.

Anyway, after our lunch, we had another game which was organized by Strip. Strip is a waxing salon which boasts its very expert waxing specialist and special waxing formula which will be less painful than those normal waxing.

I won a shirt from them by bringing a camera in front and stripping a hair from the hotness ever body of their male model (LOL).

Next up for the talk was Jill Ngo Crisologo who is a belly dancer guru here in the Philippines and owns her own dance studio, Peak Performance Dance Studio. This was actually the most inspiring talk of the day. I learned that giving up shouldn’t be an option if you have the passion for the thing that you’re doing and you can see that you’re good at it. Don’t let anyone and anything stop you from reaching your goal and never be afraid to pursue it even if no one is by your side. She was a fun and very inspiring speaker.

Last to give a talk was Bianca ValerioLifestyle Network’s F.A.S.H (Fashion and Style Hub) host. She gave everyone tips on how to look good, what hair, makeup and even nail color suits a particular skin tone and as per her words and all, the summary of her talk, in my own opinion is, “No one is perfect and beautiful in other people’s eyes; but that is not an excuse to not be on your best and look good.” I so love your tips Bianca!

I got a lot of freebies and discount coupons! Do you want proof?
