Bloggers United 2???!

Went out last Monday to a "meeting" (YEAH!) with my blog friends Pax and Melai. We went, thanks to dear Charles, to the GMA Kapuso Foundation to form ties with their team in the next Bloggers United (coming S-O-O-N!). Excited ba kayo? :) Kasi ako excited! Haha!

Found really cool (and discounted!) Melissa boots donations in the office! :P *Drools*

It was a very productive meeting. Both parties had their say, and in the end, it's all about what we can do to reach out to others. I really hope that's the image Bloggers United will be remembered for in the end...To organize all top Manila fashion and beauty bloggers to use their influence and power in the WWW to unite people for a good cause.

Excited for this venture!
A little something about the Kapuso Foundation Development Project (KSD):

The KSD Project is a school-based program which aims to foster integral education by providing students of underserved public schools, both primary and secondary, the ff:
1) Decent functional classrooms which are conducive for learning.
2) Water distribution and sanitation facilities
3) Environmental awareness through a symposium and tree-planting activities around the school premises.

Learned all these during the meeting, that the GMA Kapuso Foundation is all about transforming a kid's life by providing classrooms. I like the thought that they do not only help a single family, but a whole classroom of children and their families.

Went to Trinoma for further BU meeting:

Tumataba na ako! Hahaha! 
Kung dati hindi ko ma-take in ang food ko, ngayon SOBRANG food intake naman, hehehehe!

CR pic! Haha! After the loooong meeting na may chikahan in between! ;)

Outfit pic:

I love Charles! :)

My outfitey:
Ako na ang ready to sleep, hehehe!

Hat and Necklace - SM
Black Shirt - Bench
Floral Jumpsuit worn as wide-legged pants - my mom's
Sandals and Watch - Tomato
Fringe Bag - Hongkong Market

I love that day. Other than the motivation to go with another BU, I had a short talk with Pax when we rode the MRT going home (fumafashionista commuters! hehe!)...which sparked something in me to work again. I am not denying the burnout I experienced not only with my business but with life in general. I lost my "muchness", and I tell you it's not fun at all. I am not proud of this, but rather, I accept this reality of what happened to me because I really want to get out of this rabbit hole. I find grace and the will to start again through all the words I get from people I open up with (including YOU my reader friends!)...In fact, I started making accessories again since Monday night! :)

Coming Soon! Thinking of calling this collection RECONSTRUCT, or something. Reconstructing accessories from old collections...And also can mean reconstructing the business, the passion, and my life. :)

To HOPE and starting all over again, with more enthusiasm with LIFE! :)
Thanks for all the prayers. =)
