During the event, we got to have a fun time with fellow bloggers that we usually see on beauty and fashion events. It was fun seeing Lace, Tere, Bambi, Earth, Lauren, Geolette and Nikki. The stylists Jo, Alex, Shanna, Arnie was also present for the event. Support from fellow bloggers like Azrael, Earth, Leira and Lauren's BF was truly appreciated. Too bad that Bianca, one of the blogger contestant wasn't there to join the festivities.
Teeyah and I already conceded to just take home the loot bags for those who joined. Win or lose, we had an experience that is unforgettable. After all, we didn't really have the proper skills and knowledge when it comes to fashion except for what we think exuded our personalities and needs the best. We were just out to have fun. (Cue Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun song)
So, there we were like two giddy children having the time of our lives as we look at the mannequin wearing the clothes we created. My heart skipped a beat seeing my site on a 32 inch flat screen TV for everyone to see in Megamall Atrium. It was already a winning moment for me having been a contestant and my site displayed like that.
But when our names were called as one of the winners of the Promod, Style it Out For Me Je ne sais quoi Challenge made me (followed by Tara) jumped for joy. Yes, I was hopping. Gone was my poise and it felt like I was being called on stage on Wowoweee or even won the lottery. That's how surprised we were. We really didn't expect it. up to this day, we don't know what we did right for the judges to like our work.
The second floor Megamall Atrium transformed to a what seems like a Hollywood set of a French Cafe.
The music couldn't have set off the moment any better. Great team you have there, Sirs!
Beautiful people of Promod with Ms. Janelle, Branch Manager for Promod Megamall.
Wouldn't you just love her job?
Large LCD TV by Sansui were provided for each of the bloggers who joined the contest.
Looking up and thanking God for this blessings.

This woman was the reason why this day became one of the highlights of my life.
I may not save the world or cure cancer, but this event made me feel so good about myself. Especially that I got to spend it with dear blogging friends.

The winners not only get to go home with GC's but their entries will be displayed as well at the window of Promod Atrium. Le sigh!
To the people of Promod Megamall who helped us in our styling challenge.
Thank YOU very much!
To my fellow bloggers and contestants, we are all winners! Most of us may not have been to Paris and may not be all too familiar with what french high street fashion is... but this event alone proved us that we all have that Je Ne Sais Quoi!
Special thanks to Megamall Atrium, Promod, Bizu and Stratworks
