Preview Magazine's Augmented Reality Presscon

I don't know what's with me but lately 2 hours isn't enough prep time already! It's not even because of time spent on choosing my clothes, but on my "coffee break in front of the computer"! :P That's why last Thursday, it was waaay past 12 in the afternoon but I'm still in the bus going to Cav Bonifacio High Street. I have no choice but to change from flip flops to clogs inside the bus, and apply "decent enough afternoon make up" for the Preview Magazine affair..lagpas eyeliner and all. Hah! 

When I got there, I saw Tracy Ayson, Preview's Media Relations Associate, and my kabatch in the Candy Council of Cool. :) She's the one who invited me! She led me to the table with the other fashion bloggers, who were chit-chatting with Ms. Agoo Benzon, Preview's contributing editor! She's so nice and even asked about our blogs and our favorite Preview section. :)

The fashion bloggers table: Edrick BruelKarl Leuterio, and Tin Iglesias.

Bjorn (love the name!) and Meryl--who bought accessories from me before!

With Kookie :)

I was actually on time......for lunch! Haha!

Very vegetarian friendly buffet. Hooray!

Shalani! Pati salad ko may flower. Hehe.

Then the program started! The host Tracy Abad:

A demo of Preview's newest technical innovation in its December issue-- Augmented Reality.

"Augmented reality is the technology or process of combining real-world scene with computer imagery. This often requires a camera, a screen, and a trigger that starts the AR experience." - Edna Belleza, senior VP and chief information officer of GMA New Media, inc.

The print marker found on the lower left side of the front cover is your key to seeing Survivor Philippines castaway and Preview's December cover girl Solenn Heussaff.

Dressed in Tory Burch's 2011 Resort Collection, she talks and walks her way around a virtual computer-generated world.

Interesante indeed! Kudos Preview!

"Which do you enjoy the most: being a painter, a make up artist, or a showbiz personality?" Solenn answered well by saying it's not something you choose coz she loves doing all these things. Truly a renaissance woman. <3 Love her na, haha!

The bloggers had the chance to meet and chit-chat with the editors:

It was really a great opportunity to meet the people behind my favorite fashion magazine! Behind the Bylines ba, hehe! 

With the people I admire: different fashion bloggers and the Preview editors!

Other media groups interviewing the pretty cover girl

I went out and saw the other bloggers taking snapshots of each other! But of course, never ending an event without outfit pictures!

Love this Chuva-Shirt, Paul! :)

Clogged! With Tracy! :)

Everyone! :) Bjorn, Meryl, Tracy, Kookie, Karl, and Edrick.

No chance to take my solo photo because I am painfully shy like that, haha. ;P No idea on what to wear for an afternoon affair with the country's biggest fashion magazine, I stayed true to my boho soul. Hangin' loose, men! ;)

Long Cardigan (Cotton On), White Shirt (Department Store), Flared Jeans (Herbench), Clogs (Rubi), Accessories (Anagon)

Di ko sadya, napuputol lang talaga ulo ko sa picture, hehehe.
