Last October 18, 2016, in Trufa Pasta Bar in Makati City, I was given the opportunity to meet the Shopee community and learned styling tips and tricks on how to go from basic to trendy look from the Philippines’ very own fashion guru, Camille Co.
I was also given the opportunity to meet my old friends again! I met Kath in Tricia Gosingtian’s Bridal Shower and I met Anne in Camille Co’s 3rd blog anniversary dinner 2 years ago. I was just so happy to see them again.
Camille Co is one of the most prestigious fashion blogger here in the Philippines She has been awarded various international awards and made it into international features throughout her blogging career. Not to mention, she is already successful with her own clothing line – Coexist by Camille Co. To be honest, I’m still stunned whenever I get to meet her in person, and it is such an honor to be taught by the best. I won’t go over the details of her discussion but, you can directly visit Camille Tries to Blog. In every blog post, you will learn a lot from fashion tips to travelling tips, and even the background/tradition/culture of every place she travels to.
After the talk, we were given the task to dress up Pixie and post a flat lay photo of it in our instagram pages. Pixie is the cute orange Shopee Mascot. We had so much fun doing this, that our team got very competitive. Here are our entries:
Luckily, the Shopee Community is in our favor. We won the challenge and we were awarded with 500 pesos coupon code to the Shopee app.
Dinner was served after the little game. Food was awesome! In Trufa Pasta Bar, you will create your own pasta: for the sauce, I chose Ajillo which is basically aglio olio or olive oil based sauce with chili flakes. For pasta, I chose penne, and for garnishing, I chose gambas or Spanish style shrimp. But what struck me the most was there Zumos Con Tubo or the freshly pressed sugar cane drink. This one is really good!
Before hand, they also announced that they were doing a giveaway worth 1000 pesos Shopee coupon code. To win, you have to pick any item on the app and post it in instagram in with the required hashtags. Again, the shopee community was in my favor and I won it. I’m pretty luck this day. Lol
Of course, we wouldn’t miss the opportunity to take a photo-op with Camille! So happy to be adding these to my collection of photos with her! Can’t wait for the next photo-op. ♡
Featured online shops were also present in the event. Just look at these fab pieces. Who wouldn’t want to shop, right?
It was indeed a successful and fun event especially since I have my girl, Kath with me. We totally killed the photo booth with our mala-SM Kids photo-op. Can’t wait to see you again.
