The Art + Science of Image

Association of Image Consultants International Philippine Chapter 
conducts a by-invitational-only seminar at the Raffles Design Institute Manila.
I was so happy to be invited to this exclusive seminar. 
My friend, Meg sent me an invitation which I immediately responded to with a reservation with a plus one.
 I was so excited about this since I'm very much interested with stuff about 
Image, Proper/Power Dressing, Etiquette, Fashion, Excellent Communication Skills, Fashion Styling Networking and a whole lot more that can be added to Image Consultancy. The list of amazing and highly respected Guest and Keynote Speakers gave me goosebumps, in a positive way though =). 

I definitely found myself the best International Organization that fits me perfectly!

They served fresh fruits and vegetables as drinks. 
I went gaga over their Malunggay. So delicious!

Keynote Speaker! 


 Dra. Belo looks so stunningly stunned here as she was introduced by 
Ms. Delby as the Keynote Speaker for the event.. 

Dra Belo's energy was really tremendous. 
She's a "Show Stopper!"

She's just so fabulous in this purple mini dress with her sexy wedges.

Not only does she have a very tremendous energy, she actually had a connection with her audience.
 She was very outgoing and active with her speech.

Zein Obagi.

One thing I realized and have proven was that Dra. Belo 
is not only Intelligent and probably the best Beauty Doctor but she is also a very effective and 
amazing Marketing and Sales Person.

She talks about her medical procedures as if they're easy as 1, 2, 3.
 There's not a doubt that you would definitely agree to go under the knife, 
or any other procedure from Belo after you hear her talk.

This definitely is the group of women everyone should respect and look-up-to.

Hot Air

Some of our pictures from our Day 1 at the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. For some crazy reasons we lost many of the pictures from it. hahah But I tell you it was crazy fun. We had so much stuff going on. We sold a whooping P15k worth from Flashing Hot Air Balloon Necklaces and so we treated ourselves to an awesome night in our Korean Hotel with lots of Korean food and a very nice drink by the pool while they swim. It was complete fun!

Some of the Happy and Satisfied customers... Happy!

...and then Day 2 came and it came as early as 3am! hahaha

Its our 2nd Day and the last day of the whole week-long celebration of the 17th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta. 

Unlike during our first day, we woke up and prepped up for the second day extra early, wake-up call was at 3am. Yes, 3AM! haha I know I may have been known for quite as "the late one" but seriously, Im glad to brag that this day I was not late.
We left the hotel around 4 am and took a different route going to the venue, Freeport Zone, because according to what I heard the traffic will be crazy. I thought to myself, maybe they're just being too exaggerated just so we move fast. But to my surprise at around 4 am in the morning the traffic was literally almost the same length of EDSA. That crazy! I was a bit sleepy, actually all of us were still sleeping on the road, but when I got perfect vision of the roads, damn, it was really traffic! Amazingly we had VVIP passes, never thought there were such thing till that

Overwhelmed by the huge amount of sales turned out the last night, we immediately started selling Flashing Hot Air Balloon Necklaces as early as 5am.

Us in action selling our fabulous necklace merchandise!

Wait till you finally have it in your mouth, cause its just gonna blow your mind away. So delicious!
