Event: Caronia Spa and Tea Party (Website Launch and Awarding of Caronia Online Photo Contest Winners)

I didn't realize that two posts on my blog will get me a chance to be a part of Caronia's Spa and Tea Party at The Grove Rockwell. It was the launch of their official website and awarding of the winners of their Online Contest (you may have seen it on popular magazines like Cosmopolitan, Yes and Candy).

The event was filled with fun things to do. California Nails and Day Spa were there to treat the guests for some mani/pedis (nail colors are from Caronia of course). Food were catered by one of my favorite French Patisserie, Bizu. Drinks were overflowing and I got quite addicted with the virgin mojito served to me. Ipads were available for me to check out www.caronia.com.ph where I got to try their a lot of colors from Caronia via the virtual application.

Best of all, I got to meet Kristine Julaton, Brand Specialist for Vibelle, and Amaris Mallare, Brand Manager for Caronia, to personally thank them for checking out my blog and providing the loots for my anniversary contest.

This was the contest page that had all the pictures that the girls sent.
Women sparkled indeed during this content.
Oh how I wish I had their confidence to join the contest.

Drooling over the number of polishes adorning the event! I love them all!

Thanks to Gab for taking this shot

I won this shelf-full of nail polish and tools during the raffle promo! :0
I always wished I have several hands... I couldn't be more serious now so I can play around with these nail colors everyday. :)

This shelf is now home to more of my Caronia nail colors and other brands at home. :)

You know what? Caronia has a nail color named Joy, same name as my mom. sniff.
I'm wearing it now... And I'm sure my mom will love this color as much as I do.

Despite the drizzle that day, I never felt more relaxed and at home with a home-grown brand.

much love,
