Shooting Bloggers for SM Parisian

11:00 AM

I honestly felt like a celebrity for once in my life that day. The Parisian Bloggers Pictorial Party was the first-ever event that I've been where all the bloggers were given such a special treatment.

Picture agad, as soon as I got in with Belle and Alex!

Upon arrival, I was welcomed by a name tag and name plate on my table, along with two lovely pairs of shoes. The location, Elite Studios in Makati, had awesome party lights, a DJ playing dance beats, catered food (eat all you can!) from Bizu, cocktail tables and waiters serving us with our every need. I could sense how much effort was put into the event, everything was well prepared and personal. It was impressive.

Reg wore two different color of heels on her shoot, interesting!
JL looked like a Barbie as usual. :)
After getting dressed for the shoot, the staff of SM led me to the make-up area courtesy of Bobby Carlos and his Max Factor team. Is it just me, or did I actually look waaay older because of my make-up? Well I thought I did, haha.

I just finished when the pretty twins Danah and Stacy of Plump Pinay stepped in to have their hair done. These girls put on their own make-up like a pro!

While waiting, I made use of my time taking BTS shots and engaged in a few small talks with my fellow bloggers. The afternoon batch included Reg, Alex, JL, Belle, Valerie, Raleene plus Danah and Stacy. I had a great time catching up with them but I also missed Ana, Ava, Sarah, Aie, Bestie and Tracy who were part of the morning shoot.

I got nervous seeing how well the other bloggers were doing during their shoot. Each one had her A-game on!

I wish I had Stacy's hair color! :)

When it was my turn, I just let go and stopped over thinking (nagpractice pa ako sa lagay na yun ah, haha) so I could finish as soon as I can. Since everyone was smiling and all happy, I opted to look serious in most of my poses para maiba lang, haha. Our photographer Nikko Villegas was really funny and I loved him! After taking our pictures, they also shot our videos dancing and goofing around, plus interviewed us on what we had to say about Parisian shoes and bags.

Here's Alex, who was nice enough to take my BTS shots. :)

I had such an amazing experience because everyone in the set was really nice and very much accommodating. The surprise didn't end with the shoot because we got to bring home a whole lot of gifts from Parisian. The best part was just staying after, where I shared insightful conversations with Alex and mega chika with JL and Reg.

This is my most favorite event to date. Sobrang FUN kasi talaga! Thank you so much SM Parisian for having us!
