Hi! Its been a looooong time since I last posted, shame that I only got time to make a draft just because I can’t sleep last night. /lame
I decided to make a blog post about what I’ve been up to for the past few months!
Tricia Gosingtian Style Book Launch & Book signing
With my amazing time management skills, I was able to sneak in some time to attend this event. trolololol~ I had no sleep in the past 3 days because of our finals \m/
Hence the haggard fez. But I don’t mind anyway as long as I’m sitting beside her! Ahhh super fangirl moment as she recognized @thesabrinablog when she signed my book! Boyfriend was starstrucked as well. She’s so nice and really good at making her readers/fans kilig ^^
I was also glad to meet my new tgosingtian buddy, aleinn :) She was my companion during the event.. boyfriend had to wait outside bc apparently no book no entry. :(
SoFA Styling Workshop
Styling gig for AZUCAR c/o SoFA Design Institute.
The idea of doing pull-outs was surreal and heavenly. It felt like I was a legit celebrity stylist choosing a dress and getting it for free (for a day). It was fast pace, as we were only given 2 hours. Mala-Amazing race ang peg.Then the next thing happen was like another dream—we were endorsed to the runway director and we were given instructions on how to strut on a
not typical runway.It all happened in a blur. It was completely unexpected. We all thought it was just a simple talk or lecture on fashion and photography. We had no idea there’ll be a fashion show and a program. It was like ANTM, where they’ll flash your ’best’ photo and criticize the look you’ve chosen. Jeez, thankfully no one from the audience know me.
I was also glad to meet people with the same interests as I am. Wow, didn’t think I’m slowly fulfilling the goal of my blog! Meeting with amazing people such as Pam and Robi was one of the things that made this event worth remembering for.
(Robi was my partner for the challenge and I practiced the runway with Pam)
On the same month, I also attended the recent MIBF with my boyfriend for very quick book shopping. Can’t believe its the 34th MIBF already and this was my first time to attend!
Purchased Son Of Neptune and Mark Of Athena on discounted prices!!
Recently got crazy with Percy Jackson series that I leveled up to Heroes Of Olympus. Ahhh greek mythology is beautiful! Perfect series to put next to my Harry Potter babies on my shelf. It’s a great read guys, try it NOW!
Sadly, I’m still on Son Of Neptune (huhu) as I had to pause/ hold/ resist/ control myself while I juggle numerous academic priorities, even i’m on a sembreak. /wrist
Because my time management skills is seriously unbelievable, I was able to go to #BU5.. in the midst of cramming for my Major internship and the start of the semester! lol.
Also happen to meet the Enciso sisters and Kryz Uy. Photos above are people I’ve been following for a long time aSo grateful for my boyfriend for being my photographer and shopping buddy at the same time.
Very grateful for the opportunities I had to attend these kind of events. Meeting up with people who understands my fandom, who shares the same interests or kaartehan was the best thing. \m/
Sneaking! I didn’t have a pass to this event plus, I went to school before this! I tried my best to see this show just to spot some bloggers and icons but I got to see more than what I wanted to!
Forever 21’s newest collection presents young and fresh prints on cheerful colors. Perfect for the youth of today who enjoys trying out new things! Forever 21 plays with prints and colors on to a higher and more exciting level.
Just like the photo shown above, Polka dot top was paired with printed shorts__taking note on the color of the print on the shorts, it was paired with a red undershirt. My kind of styling! I always put my attention to small details/colors. Color scheme plays an important role to pull off a great outfit.
The denim jacket balanced the bold colors on the shirt and on the shorts.
See how versatile denim pieces are? With forever 21’s garments, you can never go wrong with their denims. May it be a jacket, vest, top, blouse, or jeans — you don’t have to worry about wearing it on summer/hot weather.
For this season, 21Men presents a collection of bright colored jeans, top s and a classic black/gray tops.
Forever21 also featured pieces for little fashionistas! Most of them were denim paired with baby pink skirts, striped tees, floral/laces, etc. Wasn’t able to take photos because I was wearing flats that day. :( I only got to see the photos on fb.com/forever21ph » visit and like their page!
The next set of collection shows Forever21’s neon clothing for a more playful and exciting look! My kind of pieces if I want to steal everyone’s attention. Neon colored clothing are always eye-catching. With F21’s you can brighten up someone else’s mood because its pieces were a mix of vibrance and fun!
The event was hosted by Joyce Pring who’s sporting a purple hair! So coool and pretty!
What I also love about forever21 is the way they choose their models! I was smitten by one guy model!! if you follow my instagram (@thesabrinablog) and Twitter(assabfloress) you’ll know who among these guys I’m having a crush on. hihi.
I got to see my favorite bloggers such as David G, Patricia P, Lissa K, Aisa I, and some celebs - too bad I wasn’t able to take a picture with them because I was alone :( Nonetheless, I enjoyed a great show and a way way cooler store! 2 floors of fashion, style and elegance! Visit Forever21 SM Aura! You won’t miss the store because its near the entrance and the huge FOREVER 21 sign outside SM Aura was really hard to miss!

Finally!! - an addition to my /events tag this year! I was indeed too busy with acads for the two semesters that I didn’t think of attending any events in the past. booooooo! /missedopportunities
But being a true blue candy girl, I made it a point to attend this year’s Style awards!
#TGIFand #yolo moments. One shall never underestimate the CANDY TEAM! Every event they organize was such a fun fun crazy night for girls young at heart (and fangirls/bloggers).
With me for the night was my boyfriend’s sister! Our first night-out together and her first night party outside school. :) I was happy to share this night with her. I just hope I didn’t give her the idea of partying all night or whatsoever. lol.
Kathryn Bernado.. without Daniel P. Huhuhu. Boyfie’s sister and the crowd were disappointed.. but surprisingly, they still went screaming with kilig when DJ’s VTR was shown - including me. Haha.
I took pictures with JUST two cuties. Very unlikely! I remember those times when I was still in High school during Candy Fair, sinusulit ko yung punta ko! Bawat Candy Cutie na makita namin, may picture ako. Haha! Hello there, Ate abby! I miss you!
Spent the night doing blogger duties instead - photo op with fellow bloggers and photo with blogger idols + style icons/celebrities!
Lovely bloggers-slash-fangirls, I met. :)
(1) Nicole of itsnicoleperez.blogspot.com - we attend the same school, and the same course. Surprising to find another person who study a medical course esp Pharmacy but has passion for fashion! Hoping that someday we can make those two things collide.
(2) The adorable Guen of Dollifieddreams.tumblr.com - we met here on tumblr, I was kinda surprised when I saw her at the event and was a litol shy to approach her but she’s too nice to recognize me!
Hello! Nice meeting you! ‘til next blogger event! :)
The Candy Style Stars 2013
(1)Janeena Chan - Ugh, she’s a real head turner!
She looks like a legit Barbie doll and I looked like .. well, a crap. :\
(2) Linn Oeymo - I’ve seen her in various print and tv ads before, i’m not surprised she’ll have the award. :) She’s really sweet! The way she talks and that wonderful smile on her face makes her really pretty.
(3) With Lexi of Lexithesecond.tumblr.com - Been a follower of her blog for almost two years now. She’s one of the most genuine, humble and nice bloggers I know. What keeps her different from the top bloggers is that she’s not afraid to admit that she buys occasionally from Ukay-Ukay! She was even known for it, she has her eyes for vintage finds!
(4) Reese Lansangan of reeseypeasy.com - I stalked her blog right after I bought the April ish of Candymag. There’s so much to love about her aside from her pink hair!
Youtube sensation, Krissy and Erika! - Super love them! Their soulful voice is amazing!
Now on to a more exciting part of the night - Enciso sisters, Laureen and Patricia! Wooohoo *victorydanceparteh*
I watched the Luxewear collection with my mom and friends! Opted for a black and white outfit! YAY! what do you think?
As corny as it may sound, I know most of the girls felt the same way last night. It was such an amazing experience being in the same room with your crush, idol, and.. dream guy.
WARNING: Expect random thoughts, crazy unusual words, improper punctuations and internet slang.
I was lucky to be there! Especially that our tickets were given to us for free! Thanks to my Mom! Plus the fact that we had a great seat, c/o my brother! We’re near the stage! Can you believe that? Ninja moves! Haha. We arrived at MOA Arena at almost 5pm!
We were this close! Yay!
Look at the crowd! Maaga pa nyan, kalurquei nung gabi na. As in punong-puno!
The feeling was surreal! Pang concert lang ang peg! And yun nga, concert talaga ang nangyari! Ang daming performances, sing and dance, band (NeverTheStrangers), and cheering c/o UP PEP SQUAD.
It was worth it! Especially that while the performers were doing their act, a video presentation of the #PenshoppeAllStars’ previous photoshoots were playing!
The crowd went, “Awwwe” with Ian Somerhalder because, of course, his always and forever beautiful stare, gorgeous eyes, and effortless hotness.
While most of the teenage girls went all envious and adored the beauty of Leighton Meester when her video was flashed on the screen. Me? I went super duper crazy with Ed Westwick! As in! Ohmyyyygollly. He’s so handsome!! And nakakakilig! Mario Maurer’s photoshoot was shown as well, in fact, his video was the finale with his VTR! And most girls swoon over his cuteness!
Tipong, jan palang ubos na boses ko! Hahaha!
Then, the countdown started and everyone was screaaaming sooo loud!
3.. 2.. 1..
We were screaming on the top of our lungs!!!! Then we were surprised to see the UP Pep Squad! Their music? HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!!!
We’re all in this together Once we know That we are We’re all stars And we see that..
Wildcats, yes? #rainbowvomit
It was so fantastic! I even got chills and teary-eyed when the music started! The memories of high school musical were reminisced! So cool!!
And he’s there!!! Right in front! In the flesh! Grabe, ang sarap sumigaw! I cannot explain the feeling! The whole thing was completely surreal! Haaay grabe!
He’s the sweetest actor I know, so far. Spoiled sa kanya yung fans niya. I envy that litol girl, who’s just 13 years old.. who, when asked about her message for Zac said, “Will you be my first kiss?” then Zac replied by, “oh, right now?” then the girl just smiled and #hoping.. then… ZAC WENT STRAIGHT TO HER. TO KISS HER! errrmerrgahhrd. Everyone was kinikilig and envious of that litol girl!
So the next girls, who were asked for their message said, “Can I have a hug?” then Zac kindly replies to all of them, “Sure, come on stage!” or “Happy birthday! And why don’t you come on stage?” Extreme!! Nakakainggit. There were girls as young as 9-13 y/o who got the chance to request for a hug from Zac! And I thought it was funny.. ‘PBB TEENS? Hug mo ko!’ lang ang peg! haha.
I can keep this post as long as 97575175567484901784018551 words just to express how I was so happy last night but I can’t. I cannot organize my thoughts this time. Can’t you tell? Haha.
This is the best weekend I got so far. Please come back, Zac!
