SM City Marikina Mall Show/Makeup Workshop UPDATE!

Hi everyone! Here’s the latest update about my first Mall Show/Makeup Workshop & Meet & Greet at SM City Marikina happening on March 23, 2014 (Sunday)

SMMarikina

Initially, the workshop did not have any requirements, but due to the overwhelming response from everyone, the management decided to give a little challenge. Don't fret, the workshop is still FREE for everyone to participate! We sincerely don’t want people to line up as early as 6AM just to get a slot, so this minor change in mechanics for participating in the Makeup Workshop was made:

The first twenty (20) participants must have an ACCUMULATED PHP2,000.00 RECIEPT FROM ANY ESTABLISHMENT IN SM CITY MARIKINA FROM MARCH 18-26, 2014 (The Beauty Hub Week).

You can have as many receipts from different stores from SM Marikina amounting to PHP2,000.00 with the dates March 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23.

To make it clearer, kailangan pong makakolekta ng kahit ilang resibo galing sa kahit anu mang store sa SM City Marikina na aabot sa halagang PHP2,000.00. Ang mga resibo po ay kailangang may petsa mula Marso 18 hanggang 23.

You can go grocery shopping at the supermarket, get your dose of beauty and health products from Watsons, or go shopping at ANY store at SM City Marikina!

After accumulating the 2,000.00 worth of receipts, all you need to do next is be at SM City Marikina (venue to be announced) and be the FIRST (20) to register for the makeup workshop and you’re done!

MAKE SURE YOU BRING YOUR RECEIPTS WITH YOU!!! They will serve as your ticket!

Registration starts at 12NOON sharp! *No advance sign-ups are permitted

Mall Show/Makeup Workshop starts at 4:00PM

Meet & Greet will follow after the workshop proper.

I am preparing a lot of prizes to giveaway! So all those who have accumulated receipts yet will not be able to make it to the first 20 will still receive prizes! Can’t wait to see everyone!

Feel free to tag SM Marikina on our photos together and use the hashtags #womensmonth #smmarikina #saytioco #SayTiocoAtSMMarikina on the workshop day itself!

For more details and clarifications, text me at 09156218309!

marikina

 

Hi everyone!

We are only a few days away from SM City Marikina’s “WOMEN’S MONTH”—happening this March 2014! What better way to celebrate it than with a makeup workshop, right? :) I have been holding monthly workshops for the past year, but never, in my wildest dreams, have I ever imagined myself announcing a workshop to be held in an SM Mall. I am truly humbled.

And with that, I am happy to share that you are all invited on MARCH 23, 2014 (Sunday) 4:00PM at SM CITY MARIKINA for a Makeup Workshop!

Only the first (20) people to register will be accommodated and be given workshop materials to use during the program like mirrors, brushes, & makeup products. We will be tackling basic makeup application!

The first twenty (20) participants must have an ACCUMULATED PHP2,000.00 RECIEPT FROM ANY ESTABLISHMENT IN SM CITY MARIKINA FROM MARCH 18-26, 2014 (The Beauty Hub Week).

You can have as many receipts from different stores from SM Marikina amounting to PHP2,000.00 with the dates March 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23.

To make it clearer, kailangan pong makakolekta ng kahit ilang resibo galing sa kahit anu mang store sa SM City Marikina na aabot sa halagang PHP2,000.00. Ang mga resibo po ay kailangang may petsa mula Marso 18 hanggang 23.

All (20) participants will get a chance to win MAKEUP PRIZES during the program’s Q&A portion! :)

REGISTRATION WILL OPEN AT 12:00 NOON! So make sure you secure your slot at once! There will be a registration booth at SM Marikina where you can sign up.

If ever you don’t make it to the first 20 slots, don’t worry, because you can still WATCH the workshop and win prizes, too! Just make sure you’re there throughout the program! I’ll be available for chit-chatting after the program, and EVERYONE is welcome! Let’s take photos, too!

WeChat with Iya Villania (A Day in Iya’s Life)

wechat_advertorial_iya

The prevalence of technology in this world is undeniable—especially for WeChat endorsers and real life sweethearts Iya Villania and Drew Arellano. Read on to find out how WeChat makes user experiences more human for the two celebrities by fueling conversations, the same way they would when face-to-face.

1. Both can talk digitally the same way they do personally.

Gone are the days when people needed to hop a plane to talk to a family member in person or drive miles to catch up with friends. Today, WeChat lets both Iya and Drew reach people wherever they are with a video call function that works over WiFi or 3G networks and a group messaging feature that lets them host two chat rooms with up to 100 users in their lists. WeChat also makes it easy for them to shift from typing to talking when they press the “Hold to Talk” button, which records and sends messages in an instant—be it between breaks when hosting shows such as ASAP and Unang Hirit, or while at home trying out new recipes in the kitchen.

2. Both can bring on and capture the good times.

Just like a public album, WeChat allows all users in its network, including Iya and Drew, to share with the world photos, videos, recordings, and comments all in one platform called “Moments”. Whether while enjoying theziplines of Pagudpud, Antique, and Bohol, recording new tracks, plunging in the waters around Siquijor, Camiguin, and Sarangani, or performing on stage, both can easily capture snippets of their vibrant lifestyles and post them on for sharing on “Moments”.

3. Both can escape to fantasy worlds.

Beyond its social networking and location-based functions, WeChat is able to keep Iya and Drew entertained during down time with the newly released Game Center that comes with its version 5.1 upgrade. Both celebrities can run along with Kattie, Nikita, and Leo and embark on exciting Gunz Dash adventures, engage on a shooting match using Pencil Pilot, or get busy with arcade games 2Day’s Match and Craz3 Match.

4. Both can continue growing their circles.

As the faces of WeChat Philippines, both Iya and Drew can count on the social mobile app’s Official Accounts feature to let them connect to their fans worldwide at any given time. Whether for TV show schedules or updates about their activities, their subscribers are instantly notified whenever they post new content on this broadcast platform. Follow Iya and Drew on WeChat via their IDs: @IyaOfficial and @DrewOfficial.

5. Both can backup their moments.

Last but definitely not the least, Iya and Drew need notworry about their files suddenly getting corrupted or theirconversations being forgotten. WeChat protects its users’data by on-demand data backup and retrieval to/from its cloud based server.

*Some features are limited to certain operating systems due to the product development cycle.

Embracing the Sun in Palawan with Nivea!

Summer came in early for me thanks to Nivea Philippines! I’ve uploaded two vlogs during the trip, feel free to watch them here:

Day 1: Arriving in Lagen Island Resorts, El Nido + PRODUCT LAUNCH
Day 2 and 3: Activities & Last Day in Palawan

It was early in the morning when everyone gathered up  at the ITI hangar. I have never been to Palawan and it was only then that I learned that we were flying with a small plane. I was quite scared, honestly. What scared me more was when they told me the plane wasn’t pressurized! If you’ve watched my flight vlogs from Cebu, you’d  know how I suffer from EXCRUCIATING pain somewhere in my brain/head whenever the plane descends. I prepared for the worst…

DSC_0002

Upon boarding the plane, we were given candies! I met a subscriber of mine who happened to work at the ITI hangar! I regret not being able to take a photo with her, but she was so nice! I took the seat closest to the cockpit! I said a quick hi to the pilot and his assistant (who happens to be a woman! Love it!) and settled into my seat. You’ll see in the vlog how shocked I was when I learned that my seat was on the EMERGENCY EXIT SIDE. LOL I didn’t know… But it was too late to change seats!

DSC_0005

I met a new friend, Joy from Cosmo magazine and she sat up front with me! It was fun hearing stories about working for a magazine company. Joy was a great company!

DSC_0010

Here’s a selfie before the plane took off!

I was able to slip in a few winks of sleep before landing, and yes, the excruciating pain happened to me, albeit I was able to survive it.

After taking a car ride to the dock, we rode a boat to Entalula Island to have lunch!

DSC_0034

Ahh…the waters looked so clear and pure! LOOK HOW GREEN IT IS!

We were all welcomed with towels, grass leis and pandan drinks.

After our wonderful lunch, we rode the boat to Lagen Island Resorts.

I was assigned in a room with blogger friends Julia Arenas of www.blessmybag.com and Mikki Galang of http://breakmyspell.blogspot.com/ 

DSC_0077

Thank you Nivea Philippines for these wonderful treats! I personally have used and love the LemonGrass and Oil Soap (it smells heavenly!) The Intense Moisture Lotion, and the Fresh and Pure wipes, of course! I was also able to try the Moisturizing After Sun Spray that afternoon and it became an instant fave of mine.

DSC_0080

Before the launching event, I had a few hours to kill and I went out for a little swim! (or babad—since I don’t know how to swim!)

Introducing the Nivea Sun Protect and Bronze!

If you think that tanning and sunscreen protection do not mesh well together, NIVEA SUN shows you that it can, and proves that you can freely embrace the sun, without worry or compromise.

The all-new NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze is specifically designed to let you take the utmost delight in basking under the sun for that even, beautiful tan. You get a sunscreen that works with the skin’s natural tanning process by stimulating melanin production, all while caring for the skin with immediate and optimum UV protection in one bottle!

DSC_0113

Alex Schwieger, NIVEA Philippines’ Country Manager, adds, “This is the first-ever sunscreen in the market that can stimulate the skin’s natural tanning process, and at the same time enhance its built-in protective mechanism because of melanin production. And we couldn’t be any more proud with this breakthrough.”

Alex Schwieger_6

The best part is, it contains no artificial colorants or bronzing agents. Because it naturally works with your skin’s own tanning process, your tan will look natural, even and beautiful. So just go and flaunt that glowing bronzed tan as you show off your skin with NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze.

NIVEA SUN Protect & Bronze Spray SPF20 200ml is priced at an SRP of P599.00 and will be available by February 2014 in all leading department stores, drug stores and supermarkets.

Now did that new product excite you? I must admit I’m not a big user of tanning lotions, but it’s cool to use a sunscreen that also allows beautiful natural tanning of the skin!

DSC_0124

The rest of the night was fun, with all the Samba dancing, food, and company!

DSC_0136

Thanks to Mark’s tips, I was able to take these photos: (who knew ISO and Shutter-something worked so nicely when adjusted well? LOL I used to not care about them and just use the auto feature of my camera!)

DSC_0143DSC_0145DSC_0146DSC_0147DSC_0169

We had dinner at Entalula Island and the whole place looked so magical! I loved the lighted lanterns! It was a perfect time to just relax and savor the beauty of nature! I could listen to the ocean all night long.

DSC_0170


Day 2 at Palawan! We went to visit Cudugnon Cave! Apparently, it is where birds nests (made into soup) are collected! “El Nido” means “The Nest”.

DSC_0244

Here’s the entrance to the cave. Yep…that was it. Everyone had to crawl and slide their way through.

The beauty of the stones inside was amazing…

After Cudugnon Cave, we went to the Snake Island! I wasn’t able to take photos nor was I able to vlog but it was beautiful. Truly one of the wonders of nature! The Small Lagoon was next!

DSC_0242

Oh man, it was the scariest (because of the SUPER DEEP WATERS and  WAVES) yet most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. I was so envious of everyone who dove and swan into the waters. *Ugh… I swear I regret not knowing how to swim. The water looked so inviting. But it was too deep I was afraid I’d drown, even with my life vest on.

I went kayaking with Martha, though! Even with that, I was scared (at first). I panicked a little when we approached the waves! It was strong!!! But then again after that, we entered the Small Lagoon, and oh wow. I can’t describe how beautiful it is in there. I couldn’t take my vlogging camera with me so I just took mental images in my head. After kayaking I vlogged about how great it is to see nature’s beauty and how there really are times when we won’t able to capture those moments but have them forever in our memories! It was BEYOND beautiful.

After the island hopping, we went to Entalula Island for late lunch!

Here I am with fellow bloggers Martha, Julia, and Liz after eating!
