Res|Toe|Run Centrio Mall Opening

Res|Toe|Run invited some fashion/lifestyle bloggers during there opening at the Centrio Mall. When I heard about the invites first, I thought its a restaurant... :D In a way, it is indeed restaurant-food inspired store for shoeaholics’ Kagay-anons like me.

This store surely satisfy every family members appetite for shoes. They have growing menu of footwear selections.
RES - comfortable casual footwear line.
TOE - composed of slippers and sandals that stylishly adore and tickle one’s toes.
RUN - athletic-inspired shoes for active individuals.

Here's the great thing I have discovered, they sell Salvatos and Flipsters. The famous foldable fliplops perfect for traveling. This can also be handy on every girls bag, incase your tired of your heels you can just grab it on your bag and solve the problem. :D

While checking around I spotted 2 items Im eyeing to have...

I want to thank Andrew Dale Camandang, Marketing Communication Officer of Res|Toe|Run for inviting us CDObloggers (Bang, Jacques, Emma) at there opening.

I have already mention a few times here that im addicted to anything Korean right? Well, here's a good news to me and to my fellow kikay Kagay-nons...
I am just happy right now coz Etude House will be opening 2 branches here in Cagayan de Oro. I first saw the tarp the other day at SM City CDO when me and my son went strolling. I immediately took a photo of it and share it on my instagram.

The next day I learned that Etude House will also be opening a branch at the soon-to-open Centrio Mall. Wow! What a treat! Definitely happiness to the max... Firstly, I can finally buy there product straight from the shop and not just online. Second, I will no longer wait that long since on November 9, 2012 along with Centrio Mall opening Etude House will also open there shop. SM City CDO branch has no opening date yet. And third, well Centrio is just a few minutes away (not to mention 1 ride only) from our place.
Yay! Wanna be sweet? Play Etude! ;)

Weeks from now Centrio Mall will be opening its door to Kagay-anons. Since it has been anticipated I bet it'll have a lot of people going to the mall. Good thing though that Centrio Mall gave CDObloggers along with Iligan and Bukidnon bloggers an advance mall tour.
When we arrived we were welcome by the marketing team and divided into 2 groups for the tour.
While The first group already on tour the group I belong in headed to the Marketing office at the 3rd floor of the mall for the introduction and overview of Centrio Mall.
Food served to us...

During our mall tour most of the shops aint done yet. Only a few shops who are already set-up and just needed cleaning and product display.

Heading to the Cinema. The cinema can cater 300 people. They have 2 2D cinemas and 2 regular cinemas.

The mall has a garden wherein you can find 2 acacia trees that they did not cut down during construction. It has playground for the kids. The garden is sorrounded with fine dining restaurants.

The Lovely Me: Ex Angle Skin Foundation

Just recently, I got interested in wearing light or just the natural everyday make-up that is not so thick but just for a natural which is perfect for everyday look. And from what I have watch on some online video tutorials, I learn that using liquid foundations is the trick for a all-day lasting make-up freshness and soft skin look.
So when a friend of mine traveled to Olongapo City for work, I asked favor to buy me a liquid foundation at The Face Shop since they don't have a branch here in Cagayan de Oro.
Wonder why from The Face Shop specifically? Will simply because I'm a self confess anything-Korean addict and it's what inspires me to put on make-up. :D

I was actually interested on the BB  cream liquid foundation but instead my friend bought this Lovely Me: Ex Angle Skin Foundation. At Php 395.00, it turns out a great buy! I like that its not greasy and so far my skin didn't get pimples after using.. Its one reason I don't usually put anything on my face because some products I used in the past gave me pimple after using. Aside from that it also smell good and really makes your skin feels so smooth. 
Last Wednesday, I had a pictorial and that's where I first wear the Lovely Me: Ex Angle Skin Foundation. Here's how it look right after putting it on with a light a make-up on...
The below is how I look after the 5 hours pictorial... Amazing right? I bet if I used the foundation powder it will no longer look like this smooth but rather dry and make-up fading already. And I would more likely do some retouch from time to time but instead with the liquid foundation I just had lipgloss retouch and that's it.
I know my face kinda look different from the first picture though its because of my eyebrow. I actually ask help at the studio because I don't know how to shape my eyebrow. Hopefully will learn on that soon too. Anyone willing to teach me? :D
Anyways, I haven't receive copies of my pictorials yet but will surely share it here when I have them. Im excited already!

Thanks Ati Bang for choosing this product for me!

Strike That Pose!

One thing Im not confident on taking photos of myself is striking a pose... I really admire people who pose fiercely! Its a thing that gives impact to a self or group photo even just by simply wearing a plain outfit. Take for example a blogger friend of mine who really strikes a fierce model pose every time the camera turns her way, even if she's in the crowd she would never fail draw everyone's attention because your like seeing a Miss Universe in the crowd of people. Check out how Roxanne pose below...

Earlier, this day I really told her I like the way she pose and she said yes because she  used to join beauty pageant way back when she's still young... Praktisado na! lol Kidding aside here is our pose....
So here's some tips I've researched online for my readers who are also having trouble posing on camera.
  • Look for inspiration. For example, if your taking photos outside, you may see the sky and be inspired to look up as you are being photographed. Or sit on a tree limb or in a flower garden.
  • Get a little creative. Start dancing around (if its appropriate at the time), or make a big doe-eyed expression. Don't limit yourself to a smile.
  • Be Photogenic. Try some poses in the mirror. Determine your good side. Fold your arms, tilt your chin down, smile or keep a straight face, lift one eyebrow, or make a crazy face!
To end this post, I'll strike my own fierce pose. ;)
