All Dolled Up with CATHY DOLL | Blogger Event

Hey, guys! Welcome back! I'm not sure if I've mentioned to you that one of my favorite brands is Cathy Doll.
First of all, I love their cute packaging! Cathy Doll's layout and design really match my taste and my personality. Second, their products are affordable and effective. Third, they are one of the most generous brands when it comes to supporting bloggers.

Recently, Cathy Doll had a launching event and I know I just had to be there! Let me share with you what happened at the event.

By the way, I would like to apologize for the quality of the photos. I brought my Casio TR60 camera but the lighting in the restaurant was too yellow so all the photos appear yellowish and grainy. I hope I don't make your eyes hurt.

We were told to wear something BOHEMIAN. Well, I honestly didn't know there was a theme until the night before the actual event. Hehehe! So, I had to resort to what I already have in my closet. Here's what I came up with!

Everything thrifted and unbranded, guys! 
*Flower crown - Divisoria
*Lace Top with fringe - Tyangge
*Maxi Skirt - Hong Kong street market
*Sandals - St. Francis Square
*Boho accesories - all from Divi!

The event was held at Spatzle Restaurant inside Shangri-la Mall in Ortigas. 

We had a feast of their food! I especially liked their meaty, chewy sausage and their cream cheese dessert! The pasta and chicken were okay, but nothing really exceptional. 

But we didn't go there for the food. We went there to witness the launch of NEW CATHY DOLL products! Cathy Doll thought Summer is the best time to go NUDE so they came up with their newest "NUDE" babies such as matte lip creams, nude eye shadows and sculpting cream.

They also celebrated their 1st Anniversary in the Philippines! I love how bountiful Cathy Doll events are! This time, they even had a custom-made pink Cathy Doll cake! Everything on the cake is edible, even the makeup and the wobbly head of the doll! hehe

Thanks so much to Nikki of for inviting me to this event. Nikki is one of my blogger inspirations. I used to read her blog on nail arts and product reviews. I also remember how when I was starting, I had zero clue how to do product reviews. I would go to her blog first. See how she takes photos of the items and how she describes the products so I could start writing my own article for a review, too. Hehe It's so flattering how I am rubbing elbows with her now and also gets invited to events by her.

Of course, the day won't be complete without my blogger friends! You know them already! Hehe

Some of the Fluffies know that I am quite an introvert in reality. I don't have much friends either. So the people that I take pictures with and post on my social media, those people are really the ones I am comfortable with and who I am friends with in real life. 

This one, though, is quite special! I can't believe I am sitting beside Valerie Tan at blogger events now. I used to just see her on TV. She is also the sweetest, sincerest and humblest person on Earth. Every time we see each other, she's often the first one to say hi! Plus, she's a real beauty!

I love, love, love these girls! I am really comfortable with them and I like seeing them at events! Do you read their blog or watch their YouTube, too? 

I also met my college friend, Charmaine, who now works for Cathy Doll as a part of their Marketing Team! We used to just eat tusok-tusok along Hepa line back in college and now we see each other at brand events!

After the fun event, I hung out with Andy of You also know she is one of my closest friends in the blogging world. But, the few photos we took at the coffee shop are all blurry. But we just had frappe and few chit-chats then we grabbed Uber and Grab to go home. It's funny because her fare was around Php 645 while mine was only Php 175. Can you imagine how far she lives?

And the best part after the event? THE HAUUULLL!!!

Here is everything I got from the event! I just love everything, most especially their newly-formulated Nude Me Matte Lip Creams!!! They are so matte, pigmented and lasts longer than other lip creams! I can't wait to share the swatches on our YouTube channel soon!

I hope you enjoyed reading today, guys! I'm sorry I didn't vlog this event but I hope you look forward to the SWATCH video I will be uploading soon on YouTube.
