That Day L’Oreal Made Me Feel Like a Model

L’Oreal’s launch for its newest innovative powder, the L’Oreal Mat Magique, was held in a photography studio where guests were treated to a mini-photoshoot with one of Manila’s most talented (young!) photographers, BJ Pascual. From the call time, the full hair and makeup routine to the intimidating light and backdrop set-up, it felt like a legit photoshoot. Until I actually had to step onto the set, face the lights, the camera .. but instead of action, I did a disney movie instead — Frozen.

Fashion Friday: White on The Spot with Avenue 32

the-misty-mom-ootd-2015-5

First OOTD for the year! Can you believe I got my husband to take these photos? Win! The whole thing lasted probably less than 5 minutes because “well, you’re not moving so why would I take more shots?“. I swear, how do style bloggers do it? I tried prancing around but we both end up laughing ‘cos I look like a lunatic and the shots were nowhere near being published on the Internet. Nope. Although I could have been credited as discovering a new version of yoga. READ MORE
