HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED AT THE REALASIANBEAUTY COACHELLA PARTY (2018)



One of the things I enjoy doing is organizing small events and gatherings. Had I not been a blogger, I would most likely be working at an events company. I enjoy the process of putting things together and somehow enjoy the thrill of it. In December 2016, I had my first-ever gathering with my loyal supporters who I call as the"FLUFFIES". Click here to read more about that party. The gathering 2 years ago was small and simple yet was utterly unforgettable. 

This year, it was their turn to organize a small gathering for me to celebrate my birthday as well as our 2nd year together. We decided to pull a Coachella-themed party since it's Summer and the date of the party falls the same week as the Coachella event in the US. (Yes, we know Coachella is the name of the place and it's funny to use the name when ours is not even a musical event. But if we're happy then I guess the name isn't such a great deal.)

The party was held last April 22, 2018 in Quezon City. It was so refreshing to see familiar faces as well as new faces! Long-time supporters as well as newbies came to enjoy the event!


Because we could only offer a small place, we were only able to invite around 40 people. At first I thought it was too small but later realized it was just the perfect number for it allowed me to interact more and get to know each and every attendant better.


Everything was planned and made from scratch, of course with the help of the Fluffies. 
If you are new to this blog, the term FLUFFIES was first used back in 2016 by some of the most loyal followers. I never had any groups or names for my followers then until they mentioned they should start calling themselves "Fluffies" because they said I could lean on them when I need them most, as if they were my soft and fluffy clouds. Aww, isn't that just so sweet?

Anyway, if you want to see what happened at the event, be sure to watch the vlog below. I tried my best to document the whole party from start to finish.



An event would not be complete without small gifts or tokens for the attendants. But because we didn't have enough resources to provide our own, we were assisted by our ever-supportive brand partners! Here are our special partners for the event!

OUR SPONSORS :

*PICTOGLAM PHOTOBOOTH


It was my first-time ever to be sponsored by a photobooth company. I've always imagined how it would be when a photobooth partners with me. I thought it would be so cool if we could have tangible photos we could take home after the party aside from the usual digital photos. Pictoglam made that wish come true!

I was actually happy and very much impressed with their service. Not only did they travel all the way from Paranaque to Cubao just to cater our event. But they also exceeded my expectation. The pictures all came out perfect! If you watch the vlog, I showed how their photobooth works. You will surely appreciate having them at your next event, party and special occasion!  


*FLAWLESS

One of my long-time brand partners is Flawless. What I love about them is that they are always generous. They sponsored almost 50 pieces of Flawless Beauty soaps! I love it because they are always reachable and make sure they are present at my special events and occasions. Really, Flawless has been a huge part of my blogging career. I don't get paid to promote Flawless, though. Just in case you were wondering. Hehe



OUR ACTIVITIES

Because we wanted this to be more than your usual meet-and-greet, the Fluffies made sure we'd have more than picture taking. They prepared a short program and also organized few activities for the event. 

1.) DIY FRIENDSHIP BRACELET TUTORIAL


Ghelai, Paola and Belle lead the segment. They eagerly taught the attendants how to make a simple friendship bracelet. We thought it would be fit for the theme of the event since we went for the summer, Coachella vibe.



2.) LIVE HAIR BRAID TUTORIAL


Before, they only saw my braids on YouTube and on Instagram. But here, they witnessed it live as I taught them few easy braids they could do on their own. At first, I did the braid on my own hair. But I realized it was hard to explain while braiding my hair at the same time so I decided to get a model from the crowd. I really think braids are prettier if you do it on someone with really vibrant hair color. It makes the braid look even more attractive.



3.) PERSONALITY DEVELOPMENT TALK (Topic : SELF CONFIDENCE)


You probably know I am not the most confident blogger there is on the internet. I've had my fair share of self-doubt, disbelief and insecurity. We thought it would be a great topic to share since we aren't always 100% confident about ourselves, are we? I didn't prepare my talk before hand as I was busy with other errands. But won't you agree a person with the most experience and emotion will always be able to deliver a great talk no matter how impromptu it is?



Aside from the usual loot bags, gifts, giveaways and souvenirs people get out of meet-and-greets, we wanted ours to be different. Material things go out of style or get broken. What we wanted to share with the attendants was something they won't be able to hold but something they'd be able to keep with them longer. Something that would inspire them. I hope my talk was able to inspire even a single soul.

4.) BEST OOTD


Everyone went to the party well-dressed! I was actually happy to see them all dolled up and glamed up! I love how they put their outfits together. Right then, I wished we were at an actual garden so the place would match their trendy outfits. The least I could do was prepare a small token and give it to the best outfit of the day!

SURPRISE!

I've mentioned it was my birthday, too, so the girls prepared a surprise for me. It was so touching because they played the guitar, sang and then handed me flowers and gifts and a cake! I never expected anything else since the effort they put to make this party possible was way enough for me. I was truly moved but I just held back the tears because I wanted to be really happy than sad. 


I would like to take this opportunity to thank Charyse, Dea, Belle, Ghelai, Paolo, Cha, Shane, Anne and Anna for the effort they put in to for this event. These are the people who went out of their way to help find a venue, buy things needed, finalize guest list, decorate the place, distribute food, etc. I know they have their own stuff, own priorities but they gave time for this. For that, I will always be thankful. 



This was the cake they gave me! Isn't it too cute to be eaten? Well, I ate anyways! hehe



I surely enjoyed the gathering. I hope the Fluffies enjoyed it as much as I did!





I also came with my Mom, Tito Alex, our pet Small and my friend Flora. My boyfriend didn't make it to the event, though. But I am still grateful to him because he used to inspire me at events and motivated me to keep going and continue this internet journey with you. He was the one who inspired me to keep going during those few times when I wanted to quit... Hence, I am still here and you are still reading this blog post. Hehe


These are the gifts I got from the sweetest followers in the whole internet world! Hehe
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I really don't expect anything whenever we hold events and gatherings so please don't feel burdened by this. However, I am grateful people take the time to remember me by preparing gifts. No matter how big or small is, I truly appreciate!
