YAAY! I thought I won't make it for the weekend. I've been out in Cebu for a month now and was in Singapore for work for few weeks. I'm so happy to that I have spent my Saturday with my girlfriends in Cosmo Fun Fearless Life Cebu event happened yesterday! :)
On it's 19th anniversary and after the success of the first Fun Fearless Life last year in Manila, Cosmopolitan Philippines brought the Cosmo Fun Fearless Cebu event to Cebu. Over 300 Cebuano Cosmo girls attended the fun-filled weekend held at The Garden Bloc, Cebu I.T. Park. Now on its 2nd year, Cosmo Fun, Fearless, Life is a #lifeinspo event that aims to teach Cosmo girls to DREAM BIG, AND START NOW.
Before the main event on the 29th, Cosmo kicked off the weekend by taking snapshots of girls in the city with the most fabuous, #OOTDs with #CosmoStreetStyle (Wow! Lucky those girls who spotted. while I was on my way to Cebu. HAHA) on May 27th where most fashionable Cebuanas will get featured in Cosmo.ph website. They also held #CosmoCafe where they visited three (3) branches of Bo's Coffee located in Ayala Center Cebu, Robinsons Galleria Cebu, and SM Seaside City Cebu to treat CGs a buy 1 take 1 promo for one hour. All Cosmo girls chilling at these shops were invited to attend the main event the next day. Capping off this jam-packed afternoon, Cosmo went around The Distillery Cebu and LIV Super Club; two of the biggest clubs in Cebu to pre-gamed with us as we showered them with Cosmo Cocktails to celenrate their Friday night with us! Whooaaa, so cool! :)
Saturday were dedicated to activities and topics about taking passions further. Cosmo editors and their handpicked fun, fearless females who made waves in their chosen fields took center stage. Cosmo.ph editor-in-chief Jillian Gatcheco hosted the event, while Cosmopolitan Editorial Director Myrza Sison talked about the transformative power of beauty.
Aside from the editors, the Cosmo team flew in renowned fashion and beauty photographer Shaira Luna. I love how she shared her story in photographs. It was funny how I met her and introduced myself and asked to take a photo with her in powder room. hahaha! No one knows the backstory it's our secret now. :D I'm so inspired to her story. Do what you love and do what you want to do.
Former Candy Magazine editor-in-chief and author of "In Case You Come Back" Marla Miniano is one of my favorite Pinay authors of Summit geezzz! I have her book Table for Two back in 2010, I think and finally I met her in person and of course, I don't want to missed taking a photo with her. I also have her series of Every Girls Guide of... you can read my post about it here: Modern Fiction Books Now I know why her books are good to read. She is an independent woman since 20 (after her college) and I can relate to that. :)
Celebrity stylist Kat Cruz, whose clientele includes Kim Chiu and Nadine Lustre, to share how they made it big in their respective careers. Whoaaa, I love her tips on how to wear wide legs pants? hahaha :D I remember my "elephant pants" days in high school. hahaha
Everyone had an amazing time listening to all the talks while enjoying Cosmo cocktails. There were also pamepering booths that provided free nail, eyebrow and hairstyling services. I got a chance to have a 15-minutes free hand massage! :)
