How do women "werq" it? How do we walk the talk? Females are no doubt multi-hyphenates. We all juggle a lot of roles so others can't help but stare in wonder. Truth be told, we each have our ways just the same as we are all unique. If we do try to look closely however, we'll soon realize that there are common denominators: food and fashion. Who would've guessed it would be so simple?
You see, we all love a hearty meal especially if its one shared among peers or kindred souls. It's fuel in its simplest sense. Fashion on the other hand is our creative juice. It allows us to freely express ourselves. It's how we showcase our unique personalities, our passions and as I'd like to think, our own personal branding. It's an art form and a means to channel our inner #GirlBoss.
During 2016's last quarter, Shopee invited me and a few others for an evening of good food, shopping and a talk from one of the country's (rather the world's) finest fashion bloggers, Camille Co. Here's what happened.
Myself, Rhob, Kath, Katrin
Excuse my eye bags and my chinkier than usual eyes. My besties from Cebu came to visit and we've been on a "bonding" spree for days on end. On this specific day, I was running on less than 4 hours of sleep as we hopped from Pasig to Taguig to Cubao to Makati. I took almost every mode of transportation possible: tricycle, jeepney, FX and train. Had I taken the bus, we'd hit bingo. LOL. We parted ways by mid-afternoon as they had to fly back to Cebu. After which, I met up with my sister and headed for Trufa Pasta Bar. We were sat together with Kath who happens to be friends with Katrin whom I've met 2 years back during Camille Co's birthday dinner. Small world!
Soon after, the talk began and Camille handed out styling tips and tricks as if it were Christmas morning. I've been following her blog for years and when she invited me to her birthday bash in 2014, I was fangirling like cray. Now imagine my elation when she first walked in the room and recognized me and Katrin! It was really so sweet of her and another reason why I genuinely love her.
Did I mention that we went all out on the photo booth? These were just a few of the many. It was a great night of werq-ing it! Here's a video to sum up the entire event.
