Around this time of the year last year, Mitch and I had just announced that we’re starting 2013 with a swap meet. Looking back, we are teeming with gratitude that we received immense love and support to our events, namely swap meet, quiz night, Juana C. The Movie date, Glam Tales, Spooky-Oke Night and relief operation for Yolanda survivors in Guianan, Eastern Samar, and online gatherings like #UsapangCurvy and Pinay Curvies Swag blog link-up parties. Plus, we even surprised ourselves for surpassing our own target of 4 events in a year! Amazing! Read More
Finally, Mitch and I had a follow-up gathering for our beloved curvy community. After the swap meet, quiz night and movie date, we are so delighted to hold our first kikay boot camp called Glam Tales. We’re so grateful that our resource speakers were equally enthusiastic about this mission and, to our absolute surprise, the attendees braved typhoon Maring to join us. It was such an awesome feeling! Our event started with a makeup demo from Maita Atienza. Based on our #UsapangCurvy about hair and makeup, it became apparent that most of us are eager to learn about contouring. Prior to the event, Maita tapped me to be the model so the attendees could see how to make magic. We truly learned a lot from her, specifically my foundation shade (golden sunset) and Findation is the place to go to find our perfect match! Amazing, right?
By the way, even before I met Maita that day, I was already a fan of hers. Her posts showed love for organic farming and she’s a reminder of my dream to be a green thumb and grow my own food. When I finally saw her in the flesh, I was stunned that she looks waaay younger and prettier in person! Her photos online don’t do her justice!
With hours left before the first Pinay plus size beauty and fashion boot camp in history, we really cannot contain our excitement anymore! God knows how nervous we are to finally meet all of you today! So to give a quick rundown on what will happen later, below is the lineup of activities in store to all attendees.
The event is totally free of charge to those who confirmed their slots and would be the only ones to get entertained for registration, light snacks will be served as well. Please note that the event will promptly start at 2:00 PM and make sure to be at the venue on-time. So, see you in a while?
