Blogger Babes Christmas Meet & Greet 2017

Sunday, December 3, 2017 Philippines


NOTE: Photos without watermark were provided by Shutter Count Photography

Ever since I started (seriously) blogging in 2013 (though I started this account back in 2005), I love attending workshops, events and most importantly joining meet and greet with my favorite bloggers. Like when I attended Kaycee's meet and greet in 2014! Today, it still feels surreal that I will be having my own meet and greet with our supporters! This is my first time Beauties! 

In my opinion, this will not be possible if not for my good friend/blogger, Rochelle of who first thought of the collaboration. She just started a group chat together with my other beauty blogger friends, Michelle, Kaycee and Gen-zel and ta-da - we are all in! I am so thankful to have friends like them in this beauty industry. I found sisters in this big world! 

The main reason why we wanted to have a meet and greet is to give back to our followers, readers and supporters this Christmas season! Why not, right? You are the reason why we are still inspired to write and to continue what we do. 

Organizing this was difficult with our busy schedules specially to Rochelle who shouldered most of the work in making this happen. Still, we were able to pull it off and made it happen last December 3, 2017 at Robinsons Magnolia Residences Tower A Function Room!

The event started at around 4PM and the opening prayer was led by Roxane Cabile-Montierro. To see all of you arrive at the meet and greet filled us all with excitement and gratitude. 

In planning this meet and greet, we reached out to our favorite brands that we believe in and they generously shared tokens and gifts for all of you because they also wanted the guests to have a great time! We hope you will continue to support them too as this #BloggerBabesXmasMeet will not be as successful without the support and generous gifts of our sponsors.
