I’ve been wanting to meet my loyal readers and followers but it really takes so much time and effort. The first one I tried was just a mini meet up with 20 winners during the Row 101 Pop-up Bazaar. Then I joined VIP Vloggers Meet and Greet Party together with my YouTube friends which was organized and hosted by VIP Magazine and Vain City. Both meet and greet events were very successful so when my co-blogger and good friend Rochelle of rochellerivera.com invited me to join another meet-up party this December, I was super game!
We thought to have our official hashtag for the event and since I’m with these beautiful people inside and out, I came up with the idea to call our group “Blogger Babes” and finally the hashtag #BloggerBabesXmasMeet since I have a feeling we’ll do this kind of event again.
We did a giveaway and raffle entrance passes to 60 lucky followers. At first, we got worried if we’ll be able to get enough brands to sponsor the products that we’ll be providing during the event but it turned out really well. Thank you so much to these brands who trusted and supported us. Without them, this meet and greet / Christmas party wouldn’t be a success. Each of us also gave away products and items from our own collection to add more prizes.
Our program started with a prayer led by one of the attendees, Roxane Cabile-Montierro.
I always feel excited to share my knowledge with makeup so we had a short makeup workshop.
I was surprised that a lot of them wanted to be the model for the workshop so we decided to get someone with the least makeup on, and here’s Arleen Oboguin who seemed to have no makeup that day at all.
She seems so happy with her look!
BINGO AND RAFFLE!
There were 10 lucky winners for our Bingo game and 5 from the raffle. The prizes were provided by one of our sponsors, The Opulence Skin. You can also follow them on Facebook and Instagram @theopulenceskin.
Super thankful to one of our blogger friends, Kaye of www.ilovekeisha.com for giving away 5 gift packs from her new baby Kaleisha Collection.
Her cute princess Keisha was the one who did the raffle. Follow them at @kaleishacollection on Instagram.

Charms for Luck
My mom and I loves crystals and charms. Up to this day, we still buy that yearly “pabuenas” bracelet with different stones and crystals so I got pretty excited when I heard they’ll be one of our sponsors!
Each attendee got a Rose Quartz pendant necklace then Rose Quartz bangle for us blogger babes. Thank you so much Charms For Luck!
Rose Quartz symbolized unconditional love and infinite peace. It was absolutely the perfect Christmas gift a woman could receive as it purifies and opens the heart at all levels and brings deep inner healing and self-love.
