Maybelline BB Top Models Search: Jury Duty

Remember my post about the Maybelline BB Top Models Search? Guess what … Maybelline invited me for Jury Duty last December 9! I’m really honored to be invited!

I got to mentor 2 beautiful ladies during the search and it felt good when I heard that they made the cut! Though only 1 girl made to the go-see because my girl read the email late. Anyhoo, I’ll let the pictures do the talking now.

The first that caught my eye when I got there was the dessert bar! The set-up is just perfect! Wish I could have a dessert bar like this at home! Haha!

The table was filled with scrumptious cupcakes, marshmallows, flowers and many more!

These Jury Duty mugs were given to us after the go-see. It looks awesome, right?

Marta Cunha, the Group Product Manager of L’Oréal Philippines, gave an inspirational speech to all the aspiring models before the go-see.

Everyone waiting and excited for the go-see to start!

Here we go! Let’s get the show on the road!

We got to meet 30 beautiful and talented young ladies. Each and every one had a chance to walk fiercely down the runway. After the walk, the jury asked them a question about the brand so that we’d know if they fit to become one of the BB Top Models.

I love Mona! She really stood out with her Pinay Beauty!

We had a few minutes to breathe and mingle with other bloggers after the go-see.

Yette Cruz of Yettezkie’s Doodles, won 200 Maybelline Products to giveaway to her readers because the girl she mentored got the highest online votes!

Finally! Meet the 8 Maybelline BB Top Models for 2014!

All of them were super excited and happy when they were called on stage!

THE WINNERS are (from L to R) Mona Florendo, Victoria Velasco, Kristelle Ann Batchelor (She’s the UST Courtside Reporter! Go USTe!), Shane Nicole Remante, Marnie Favis, Celestine Generillo,  Erika Acampado and Marilag Sadicon

Mona Florendo won a P100,000 exclusive modelling contract and Victoria Velasco won a P50,000 exclusive modelling contact under Ideal People Model Management

After the go-see, I got a chance to have a photo-op with Dee Cruz – she’s under Team Yana! Woo-Hoo! Good job Dee!

Anyhoo, Congratulations ladies! Hoping to see you guys next year for the Maybelline BB line! That’s it! Hope you enjoyed my post as much as I do! :-)

OPS!Objects now in the Philippines!

I love accessories and jewelry! I think you agree with me? An outfit is not complete without them, right? So, when I got invited to the OPS!Objects launch, I just can’t say no!

OPS!OBJECTS was born in Italy in 2010. It jumpstarted with a range of colorful, playful and fashionable bracelets, and their mix of beautiful, irresistible vibrant color palette and materials attract those who are not afraid to play with a wide range of color and those who want to stand out from the crowd. Because of its fun, playful and unconventional pieces, and meticulous attention to every detail, OPS!OBJECTS became a staple for every fashionista and in an instant must-have for every season.

With its tremendous success in Italy, OPS!OBJECTS then started to branch out abroad in June 2010 – from Italy to Spain, France, Portugal, Greece and to Hong Kong. Now, OPS!OBJECTS finally made its way to the Philippines! Thanks to Olivia Francisco who discovered and brought these amazing brand to MNL!

The launch was held at the Vanilla Cupcake Bakery in Glorietta 3 last Wednesday! Actually when I entered the store, it’s as if I’m inside Alice in Wonderland! The venue is just perfect for the launch because it captured the cuteness and daintiness of the brand!

Since I was early, I took advantage and took some photos of the store! The place was filled with dainty floral chairs, colorful walls and CUPCAKES!

I just want to take home these chairs! Huuuu! They’re so cute!!!

OPS! Love and Stud Bracelets! Lusting over the blue one! Lately, I’ve been loving Royal Blue and Maroon.

OPS! Love and Beat Earrings

I have so many favorites! For sure, I’ll go crazy when you asked me to pick one! With so many colors and variations to choose from, no doubt that you’ll also have a hard time!

OPS! Rock XL Rings. It’s super oversized, Ava even said that it’s bigger than her engagement ring!

Thank God it’s Christmas! I have an excuse if I buy these in different colors and stack them up! #armcandy

 With these fun, colorful, playful, and easy-to-wear OPS!OBJECTS Jewels, women of all ages can be glamorous and cool without giving up the unconventional touch of glam and classic chic style

Did you know? OPS!Objects sold over a million accessories in 2012! I’m sure the Filipino’s would go ga-ga for them as well!

Olivia told us about how she discovered OPS! during her trip to France and a quick background of the brand

They also raffled off OPS!Objects bracelets but I didn’t win. The 3 ladies were so lucky! The Tennis bracelets are too die for!

We now have a new reason to accessorize even more! In light of the recent devastation brought by Typhoon Yolanda, OPS!OBJECTS Philippines will be donating 10% of its profits for November and December to the victims of Yolanda. For every OPS!OBJECTS sold, we will be able to help our brothers and sisters who were, and still are, affected by Typhoon Yolanda. 

Hope you could check OPS!Object out and even buy one … or two … or all of them! I know I will ;-)

OPS!OBJECTS is available in Nothing But H20 (Alabang Town Center, TriNoma, Boracay, Robinson’s Galleria and Glorietta) and Swim Rockwell. For more information, visit Like OPS!OBJECTS on Facebook and Follow OPS!OBJECTS Philippines on Instagram
