The Color Run 2016 – Tropicolor

My first ever Happiest 5K on the Planet experience with The Color Run UAE!

I’ve always wanted to join fun events like these and I never do because my schedule never permits me to do so, either I have work or I have other plans already laid out. So this time around, I made it happen and not only did I enjoy the event but I met two beautiful people (inside and out, that I knew for the longest time online) in person!

EVENTS: Cosmopolitan ME x Bershka SS’15 Styling Event

A few days back, I had the privilege of being one of the first to know about the Styling Event organized by Cosmopolitan Middle East in collaboration with Bershka that was held last Wednesday at Bershka, The Dubai Mall.

The event was open to public, got free styling tips from Stylist Nicola Flifel of MyStylistDubai. Not only did everyone get professional help, but all the items that was available in the store, from clothing to accessories, were all 15% off, only for the night.

Check out what’s in store for Bershka SS’15!

#FFWDDXB05 – Top 10 Collections

Fashion Forward is Dubai’s take on Fashion Week that is always looked forward to in the region. I have had the opportunity to see the collections with my very own eyes but due to other important matters – a.k.a. work – I had to skip almost the whole event.

25 designers have showcased their amazing creations this season and as much as I would like to send out my love to all the designers, I’ll just feature in this post my personal favourite collections. Pardon me if there’ll be some kind of confusion but,Β I have rated the collections based on theirΒ wear-ability and well, with how much it left me at awe. The order that I have put in would be from 10-1, from the least to my most favourite!

So last November 30, I finally graduated from the photography short course I was taking up with OPPPS*. It was every Friday for 3 months, learned a lot of course and met and became friends with an awesome bunch, the Mazinger C! πŸ™‚Β 
Sharing you some photos from the Graduation Night! πŸ™‚
(c) Joel Santiago

Fun Booth with mother! πŸ™‚
I was supposed to be graduating with my Father Dear but since he suddenly went offshore and missed the last month of the workshop, he wasn’t able to do so! So Mama was the only one with me that night. But still, this one is for you Papa! πŸ˜‰

Fun Booth with Mazinger C’s:
(a)Β Oppa and a proud Bedan Sir Randy,
(b) Grupo Ocho {incomplete: Kuya Arnold, Kuya Russel, Ate Irene, and Kuya Joel – Missing Ate Lerma, Ate Juvy and Papa}
Sir Randy is our trainer together with Sir Jimmy and Sir Walter πŸ™‚ But the catch is with Sir Randy! Little did we both know that we were alumni of NCAA’s top rival colleges! Haha. It was that one time when I put up a status about Letran going in to the Finals and the rivalry between the Knights and the Red Lions were back that Sir Randy commented on suddenly cheering for the other team! :)) *Beda Tulo Laway! Haha
As for the Grupo Ocho, well, honestly we haven’t really bonded much.. Or may be ako lang? Lol. But it was nice having to enjoy the last moments with them, meaning the last meetings in class πŸ™‚ Most especially to Kuya Arnold, Kuya Joel and Ate Juvy!! πŸ˜€ Spent one whole day with them struggling with our final plates and going to places to shoot! Haha.

The ates (and the very bunso) of Mazinger C! Or should I say, the ever so makukulit and malakas trip members of Row 4! πŸ˜› .. With Mama of course!

The Bunsos of Mazinger C! πŸ™‚
Zyra and I! πŸ˜€
Haha! Zyra is actually the main bunsoΒ (youngest) of Mazinger C! But I just had to and wanted to proclaim to myself that I am too!! πŸ˜‰

Mazinger C! Incomplete :S
Β The night went really well! Although, it lasted for about 5 hours because the program had too many and too long breaks! But it was really fun! As photographers (now), expect that almost 80% of the time, we were only taking photos of ourselves. Suddenly coming up with themes and poses and pegs! All because we were all so glam and fab and of course, royalty that night πŸ™‚Β 
So off to what I wore!
{Forever 21 dress, belt and head piece; Heels from Payless; Bracelet is Mom’s}
Bow is also from Forever 21 πŸ˜‰
Hair and Makeup done by yours truly πŸ˜‰
So! Since I am now a certified photographer, anyone wanna model for me?
I need and gotta practice more because I’d love to master Fashion Photography πŸ˜‰

*Overseas Pinoy Professional Photographers Society
* Sorry for the noisy and crappy quality photos! Mom’s to blame πŸ˜›
