GIVING BACK AT TOMS GIVE FAIR 2015


Christmas is finally here! It's one of my favorite seasons because it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. My most favorite part of the season is the giving part. I would always give gifts to all of my classmates back in grade school and high school even if I'd get none in return (This is a true story btw hahahuhu) 'cause I always feel generous. And since I really love to give, it didn't take long for me to accept Toms Philippines' invitation for me to go to their Give Fair!

Toms treated us to a day of fun-filled activities both for the young and young-at-heart. My fave part is the free food HEHE especially the free fishball! I was too shy to play the other games but I tried my luck at the Pop the Balloon booth and I won a mug.

It's a whole different world inside the Toms store. If you want to take a break from the crazy fun that is going on outside, step inside to chill, try out different activities and maybe have a cup of coffee from Toms. Inside you'll get to paint your own Toms shoes in cookie form, experience virtual reality and have your own pair of Toms customized!

I also brought my younger sister with me to the event!

One for one is not just about shoes. They also have eyewear and with every pair you purchase, they will help give sight to a person in need.



I got to immerse myself in my first virtual reality experience and it was really cool. Not only do you get to look around in 360 degrees, you also get to see the film in stereoscopic 3D which puts you right in the fil. The film playing was a Toms documentary about their One for One initiative at one of their supported communities in other continents.

Beyond the booths and the freebies, the sole reason that I was there is because of the initiative to give back. This year was a bit crazy for me because of the milestones that I conquered and amazing opportunities that I received. I figured I had to dedicate some of my time to helping others and this was one of them.



Toms partnered up with Kids For Kids to provide a huge amount of Tic-Tac-Toe wooden play sets for us to customize. There's a specific set for boys and girls and you'll also get to know the name of the kid you're making it for.

For the boy's design, I used the color scheme of my logo. WEW. Cinareer ko talaga siya guys.

For the girl, I gave her toy the Disney Princess treatment. HAHA pagbigyan niyo na ako guys. I think we were supposed to make only one but I enjoyed it too much so I made two. This is my first to go to the Give Fair and I'm really curious about what they'll do next year.


The event was capped off by an amazing performance by Clara Benin! Her performance got me hooked with her music. You should check out her original songs!

Thank you so much Toms Philippines for inviting me to this event! I loved my experience and I can't wait what you guys have in store for us and the people that you'll help next year. Be it Christmas or not, it is always nice to give. Happy holidays everyone!

BEYOND BENILDE: THE GRAND ALUMNI GATHERING

It was such a relief when I could finally call myself a college graduate and an alumni. I got all the feels when I got invited to my first alumni party. Benilde Alumni Association recently invited me to Beyond Benilde, a grand alumni gathering held at Hyve in BGC.

Saying no was never an option because it meant I'll get to see my friends again. I also got to reconnect with my blockmates since I was a frosh student. A party isn't a party without friends.

My favorite part of the event was the food. Kidding! But seriously, it was the best way to catch up with friends than to awkwardly dance together.

Thanks to the invite, I got to bring my friend/blockmate/sister from another Nikki which was really awesome. I haven't seen her in a long time and the gathering was the perfect way to catch up and exchange stories.

I had so much fun hanging out with my blockmates. I'm looking forward to partying with more friends soon. To get updates on future alumni events, like the Benilde Alumni Association Facebook page.

I even vlogged about it here. I remember my old mundane posts about a few bits of my college life like it was just a few months ago. Can't believe it myself either. Now I'm about to attend my first alumni party!

SNAPS FROM #YSPROM


I was invited by my fellow Stache Magazine creative and friend, Maine Manalansan to attend this year's YS Prom. To be honest I had no idea what it was until I searched the YS Prom hashtag on Twitter. Based on the pictures of last year's party, I really felt intimidated by the crowd.

I didn't feel like I was cool enough (haha) so it took me a long while before I decided to go. I made the decision a day before the party. With that decision I didn't have time to find a onesie or a pajama. I don't really wear pajamas when I sleep so yeah.

My friends Vis and Josh got in the party because of my friend Bea who worked for SM Accessories. This wasn't really part of the plan because they were just supposed to drive me to the venue after watching Ant-Man. Yay for more friends!

My beautiful friend Bea!

Young Star had pizza, fries, cotton candy, and burgers for the guests! There was also beer and craft drinks from EDSA BDG. I love the packaging that they designed for the drinks.

I bumped into my aunt (HAHA) and amazing human Joey Alvero!

I also bumped into my friends Audrey and Nica!

I had a blast with my friends at Young Star's pajama prom party! Huge thanks to Maine for the invite and congratulations to Young Star for celebrating their 19th anniversary. It was really nice seeing creative internet people in the flesh. Haha! See ya again next time!
