Event LOVE: Last day of @CPFW2013

IMG_20130616_011633Canada Philippine Fashion Week (CPFW) fabulously strutted into town with all the glitz, glamour and culture that anyone could hope for a couple weeks ago. Due to my work schedule, I wasn’t able to go to all the events, but I made sure that I was there to celebrate the last of CPFW. There. Was. No Way. That I was going to miss it. What was great about this event is that I got to see pieces from the collections of all the designers up-close, as well as  meet some of the designers, which was awesome! It’s different to see clothes on the runway, but when you get up-close you get to see all the clean finishes, the intricate details, you get to feel the fabric… it was great!20130615_203430

GOTSTYLE was the perfect place to celebrate the last day of CPFW Toronto 2013.

Looking sharp sir!

The featured Filipino and Canadian designers were: Amina Aranaz, Brian Maristela, Francis Libiran, John Ablaza, John De Porter, Leonard Co, Noel Crisostomo, Norman Noriega, and Roland Alzate.

Sweet Showertime with @Gudhappens

Sometimes in the summer, I have to shower 2-3 times a day because it is sooooo hot and I get so sweaty!  In the colder winter months, I prefer a creamy, milky body wash like Dove but in the summer, I love the clear shower gels. I love to just douse my loofah and make lots and lots of suds for that really clean feeling.

Gud from Burt’s Bees has been my go-to for the summer!  With fantastic but not overwhelming really fresh scent like red grapefruit, pear, orange – it is the perfect pick me up with a summer breeze.  The great thing is, the scent is not overly girly or manly so everyone can use it!Screen Shot 2013-06-29 at 2.11.18 PM

It has a easy snap/pop open lid and fun colors that will make it easy to use in the shower. It is natural too!  It retails for less than $6 and you can get it at your local drugstore or Target.

Event LOVE: @VOCABComm 5th Annual Art of Music Gifting Lounge @MissVOCAB @VOCABLounge


We got to hang out the VOCAB C0-Ed Gifiting Lounge, which celebrated the 5th annual Art of Music Video Gallery Exhibition and it was so much fun. The weather was so nice, everyone was happy and laughing, the vibe was RIGHT. I loved bumping into some of my favourite people, as well as meet some new ones; it was a good afternoon. We were given an opportunity to check out an exhibit that showcased imagery from the NE Creative Group’s (who were nominated for 11 awards at this year’s MMVAs by the way) favourite video archives. Some of the featured imagery came from directors like RT!, Cazhhmere, David F Mewa, Davin Black and more. The gifting lounge also gave a number of brands a chance to get their products into the hands of Canadian and American celebrities, directors, publicists, producers, stylists, tastemakers and trendsetters during the MMVA’s.20130615_191418

Go Further with @Ford 2013

This year marks the 3rd annual Ford Trend conference for me!

The Westin at the airport was just lovely! The staff were extra friendly and the rooms were gorgeous.
150 journalist and lifestyle bloggers were invited to attend 3 days of intense seminars and workshops and of course test driving cars.

To demonstrate the rear view cameras, this little Ford Fiesta backs up and scores the giant soccer ball!

Even though the Fiesta seems small, it has incredible power, control and can go pretty fast!

A lot of options to drive greener.

Need a quick recharge anyone?

Tai giving me a refill hehehehe

Tony and Tai drove on the tracks…

We drove F-150’s to deliver supplies to a Greening of Detroit park. It was awesome!
