Last Saturday, April 16, 2016, I attended Forever 21’s #TriciaXForever21 event in SM Aura, featuring Tricia Gosingtian’s spring/summer collection. And there, they announced that they’ll be having another event in SM Makati next Friday, April 22, 2016. This time, it’s with Ida Anduyan and Lissa Kahayon.
Yes, you heard it right, Ida Anduyan and Lissa Kahayon. A huge omg right? Upon hearing that, a smile formed in my face.
I asked my mom if I can go next Friday. Sadly, she said no, because no one will accompany me. Both my mom and dad are not available because of work. My sister also is not available because she’s going out with her friends. My close friends are not available too because they’re in the province. Ugh so lucky right?
It’s so hard to accept the fact that I cannot see the people I look up to when it comes to fashion, fitness and Instagram-ing.
But I still stalk Ida’s & Lissa’s Instagram whenever I am online for posts and details about their Forever 21 event. My plan was to join their contest, if i won, maybe I can convince my mom to let me go.
The sad part is that, I wasn’t able to make it to the top 30 people to comment on their Instagram post about their Forever 21 event. The top 30 will automatically be guest-listed. Walk-ins are also allowed but they’ll only accommodate the top 4o. Huhu. Super bad timing. I was watching a movie when they posted it.
Ida and Lissa are posting photos on Instagram about their talk tomorrow. Ugh, so jealous of the people who are on the guests list. So I texted again my friends if they’re still on their vacation. My fingers are crossed while texting them haha. Luckily, one of my close friends is already here and agreed to accompany me. So my mom finally allowed me to go, so woot woot!
Fast forward to Friday
We went there super early just to be able to make it to the top 40 walk-ins. Because we were so early, the staff there told us to just come back at 1 o’clock for the registration.
Perks of being early. Yaay, VIP passes.
The theme of the event is Backyard Party. Super cool right? An ordinary Forever 21 store turned to a Backyard-Themed party.
On the event, they spilled their ‘Secrets on Instagram-ing’, what camera(s), app(s) and filter(s) they are using.
The host was again Giannina Ocampo. She even seated with us, and had our short chit chat while listening to Bp Valenzuela.
Bp Valenzuela performed before and after the talk. She resonates while using machines and laptops in place of instruments. She’s a singer and songwriter but she is also a producer. Ugh so talented.
Finger food are also there, to keep you alive while listening, or fangirling hihi.
Zedrick Europe, Duff Orante and Deegee Razon was also there. Sadly I don’t have a picture with them.
I learned a lot from their talk. Time to renovate my Instagram feed. If they’re are my teachers, I will never be lazy again for school lol. I really wish they’ll be my teachers haha.
Lissa even included our picture on her blog, lissakahayon.com . Wiii kilig.
