I'm High! Uh-Oh, Silly... I'm not intoxicated with drugs.
The kind of High I'm feeling is that feeling you get after doing something that you don't get a chance to often do.
So what are they?
The first one is Dairy Queen's Product Launch Event and the second is GoKarting.
Just yesterday (November 10) at around 6:30pm, DQ had an exclusive event entitled “Dress Me Up: A Fashion Bloggers Event” at the Sapphire Room of Gateway Suites, with the help of Araneta Center. It was an exclusive holiday fashion event featuring the ff:
Ladies of Bb.Pilipinas
Miss Universe Philippines 2012 Janine Tugonon,
Bb. Pilipinas International Nicole Schmitz,
Bb. Pilipinas-Tourism Katrina Dimaranan,
Bb. Pilipinas 2012 2nd Runner-up Annalie Forbes,
Miss International 2011 Semi-Finalist Dianne Necio
together with 8 pairs of fashion bloggers and some male models from Next Models.
It was the first time for DQ to hold a big event like this as they are at the same time introducing their Newest Product, Black Forest. As such, Black and Red were the colors of the night.
This is what I wore. My dress is actually a bit backless. Too bad I forgot to take a picture of my back. :))
Dress from Y.R.Y.S
Pumps from Parisian
Anyways, how did I get invited?
Well, thanks to my lovely twin Sophie who was one of the lucky winners of DQ's facebook contest.
I'm her +1 :)
Here's some pictures from the event proper
We get to enjoy DQ's Black Forest while enjoying the fashion show!
For you guys out there, go to your nearest DQ store and grab a cup of DQ's Black Forest.
Taste the goodness of chewy chocolate bits and cherries. Oh, they make a great pair!
Guests from the other side of the stage
And here are the Ladies of Bb. Pilipinas, NEXT Models together with the fashion bloggers
And although everyone did a good job in styling, only 3 looks can shine!
So the 3rd prize went to contestant 2.
Team goes home with P3000
2nd prize went to contestant 5.
Team goes home with P7000
And of course...the Ultimate winner...
1st prize goes to Contestant 4.
Team goes home with P20,000!
Congratulations! They were actually my sure bet at the very start of the contest!
I would say the styling is indeed a classic but with a twist of sophistication and texture. It was also a plus as the model walked confidently making the whole look work out perfectly.
The event ended with more photo ops including the DQ Management
As the guests started leaving, they started partying the night away starting with ramp modeling. Kudos!
Oh, how I wish I get to be invited again to another DQ event with my twin sister. Or if opportunity arises and we get to be part of a succeeding Dress Me Up: A Fashion Bloggers Event, it would definitely be something. I wish upon a star :)
All in all, It was definitely a night to remember!
Lastly, thanks for the treats DQ :)
My my, i've talked a lot :)
Off to my second "Drug"
So how did I spend my afternoon before attending the DQ Event?
I went Go-Karting in CityKart located at Park Square, Makati. It was actually my first time to try karting at that place. My friend gave me this Race voucher as a Christmas Gift and it's about time I avail of it before it expires.
I went to CityKart at exactly lunchtime so I'm actually lucky to have the entire race track to myself! My very first Go-kart experience was at Speedzone in Fort Bonifacio so I already knew how to kart when I got there. But back then I had competition which of course is extra fun :)
My Best time 1:16.284 :) Not bad I guess =))
This Day was indeed Sugar and Spice! Adrenaline Rush!!!! Definitely worth it! :)
'til my next event! Cheeers! Don't forget to checkout my twin's blog as well.
The color I should be in during extremely special birthday celebrations.
Since I was attending a 70th birthday celebration, I had no excuse but to follow.
As expected, everyone in the party was in Red.
In Chinese culture, it is said that once a person reaches the age of 60,
it marks a significant part of his life and thus worthy of a big celebration.
After that, bigger birthday parties are held in subsequent decades.
In weddings, traditional Chinese would make sure that Red is included in one of the color motifs.
Usually they choose Red and Gold, doubling the couple's luck.
Also, remember those Red packets or what they call Ang Pao given usually during the New Year?
All these are small trinkets/ signs wishing the person good luck, happiness and prosperity.

Pumps from MNJ
The color Red simply means Good Luck and Prosperity for the Chinese.
It's just pure respect and courtesy to wear such color when you get invited to these special events.
So next time you are asked to attend one, you know what to wear :)
Want some quick fix to perk up your day?
My answer is simple. Wear a color that you'll look good in.
In my case, it would be the mixture of the colors Blue and Green.
I'm guessing Teal is the exact color.
Dress from Bazaar
Belt from Plains & Prints
Loafers from Tomato
Wearing bright colors will not only make you noticeable, but also have a positive effect on your attitude.
Many say that Green is one of the best colors as it is one of the dominant colors of nature.
Thus, shifting your attention to nature or to a color associated to it (NOTE: Even for just a few minutes!) can actually relax you.
Feel like experimenting? Then mix different shades similar to what I just did.
Just make sure that the colors will complement each other and not hurt the eyes of bystanders.
You wouldn't want them to have an eye-sore, would you?
Aside from feeling good this day, I actually did get several compliments about my look.
Thank you random people. That was definitely a Plus for me :)
