When I saw this photo on the account, my heart literally jumped. I am a self-confessed Origins baby guys. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know Origins is my favorite skincare brand. I’ve used their cleansers, moisturizer and masks. So I checked the date and time and I knew I was available for this event. So now the next thing is to register. I was able to send an email a few hours after the post went up on Instagram. I didn’t really get my hopes up because I thought I saw the post a little too late. And then I received an email from Marielle of Project Vanity team asking to confirm my attendance. YES!
I got there before 2pm and there weren’t much attendees around yet but then again, they only had 10 slots so I know this will be a private function of some sort. Yep, in the middle of SM Makati Beauty Section, but not really since Origins Store is in a very cozy but spacious corner. The first person who welcomed me was Sam who I learned was part of the Origins team. Then Den of Project Vanity approached me and surprisingly knew my name! Galing! Haha. She later said that she has been seeing my comments on Project Vanity since way back. Yep. Haha. We got to talk to Liz about random things and she asked how we find the new format of Project Vanity. There were positive feedback overall and I personally like the new format. So much more content. <3
I won’t go through all the details of the event since Angela was able to capture what happened in the event pretty well in this post. Great job, Angela! I’ll just post (lots of) photos and some highlights!
Food was provided by The Wholesome Table. The Spinach with Sun-dried Tomato dip was super good! I really liked the cold pressed juices as well, too bad I wasn’t able to take note of the name of the combo I liked.
I also got to meet Niki who is also from Origins, she helped apply the products on our hands so we could have a sample. Got to meet the rest of the participants as well and some of the contributors of Project Vanity.com. Yey to new friends! 🙂
