Etude House Princess Academy Event Day 2 Experience
I arrived at the venue (SM The Block) at approximately 12:00 because I had to meet my best friend so I can get my ticket from her. (She bought me my ticket! Yay! Thanks Bhez!) We went to Starbucks for a while then afterwards, we parted ways (she’s not really interested in makeup ). At nearly 12:45, the line near the entrance was starting to accumulate so I had to get in line as well. They opened their ‘doors’ at exactly 1:00pm. They gave us our very own tiaras prior to entering their pink arch.
Oh, and if the tiara’s not enough to make you feel like a princess, here’s their Pink (Strawberry) Macaroons & their Pink Heart-shaped cookies just to make sure you get your own dose of sugar. Oh, and the Pink cotton candy as well as their Strawberry cola is not yet included in that photo.
Oh, and have you met Betsy? Betsy is Etude House’s official car? She’s soo pink! Eyah, Gina and I took the opportunity to pose with her and take our pics while we were waiting for our turn at some of the games. She’s a heart breaker, isn’t she?
After our picture taking with Betsy, we were able to play games. The first game we played was the game ‘Sweetie’s Spin’. I was able to answer their trivia, so I got two spins, and I was able to win two items (since both spins got me two prizes, as well) Sorry if I don’t have a photo, btw. Then we played ‘Style Me Up’. I won a nail sticker in this round. Thanks to Eyah & Gina for coaching me. I must admit, I’m not really good under pressure -__-
Last game I played was ‘Kiss The Prince’ which was something I didn’t think I would play. Luckily, coaching was allowed, AND, the part that I got was ‘chin’ so, yeah. Thanks, Gina, btw. I also got a nail sticker for winning that game. So far, I won in all of the games that I participated. Thanks Etude, for making winning so easy
Of course, you wont be a princess until you sit on your own (cute pink) throne. I got my very own ‘Princess Portrait’ and of course, I wore my tiara even though it kept falling. That’s why I can’t even tilt my head. Duh -__-
Then of course, what would an event be, without the speakers, celebrities & the main event which is the Pink Artiste contest (Sadly I wasn’t able to see it). The program started with a dance performance by the Nemexis (More photos here), hosted by Carla Humphries, with a few opening remarks from the Etude House Philippines President – Andrea Amado. Their main topic was fashion & beauty and their main speakers were Ryuji Shiomitsu, who talked about fashion & Bianca Valerio who of course, talked about beauty.
Of course, who could forget their celebrity guests, I was only their until Ella Cruz. I didn’t get to meet the others. I didn’t know that her family was with her, so I took the opportunity to spend the entire day with them. It’s been a long time since I bonded with them. I miss them dearly.
Then of course, my co-bloggers and I took photos with Ella.
So like I said, I had to leave. I decided to leave with Ella since it’s been a while since I bonded with my bro’s family. We went to Greenhills afterwards, which is something that I haven’t done for quite sometime. I know, right.
Anyway, just a quick rundown of events — were a total of 13 Freebies (including the tiara) in the ticket, and so far I was able to redeem 8 of them; They are the following:
Kiss The Prince*
Style Me Up*
Pink Heart Shaped Cookies*
Pink Cotton Candy
* – Claimed freebies
Like I said, I was only able to redeem 8 freebies, but it was more than enough and it was so worth it! I bought a ticket with no clue what to expect and I got home with a pink heart shaped cookie, along with some other stuff that I bagged through joining their games. And I didn’t expect that.
A couple of my co-bloggers went home with a blogger loot bag which I must admit got me to thinking I wish I stayed, and registered, but well, at least I had fun. Oh, and I can always go back and buy those things for me. It might not be for free, but the event was priceless.
Thanks again, Etude House Philippines
because even though it was just for a day,
you made my childhood dreams, of becoming a princess
COME TRUE ♥
