Power Dressing Seminar with UST-JPIA

Arnie + public speaking = NOPE. Maybe Arnie PLUS singing will do! :p Last week, when I got an email from the UST Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants inviting me to speak for their seminar, I almost declined. But what made me decide was the drive to experience more things, different from the usual. Fashion was also the main topic, which is something that I really love, and it won't hurt if I'll share my little thoughts that can be helpful for the students.

But believe me, I died hours before the seminar! Lol

Butttttttt this happened!!!!!! Ahhhhh :) :) :)

Back in high school and college, whenever there's an on-going seminar and the speaker's super boring, I'd count sheeps and sleep cozily from where I'm seated inside the auditorium. Hahahaha! That's why last Saturday, I got so nervous karma might hit me. I might be conducting a seminar to crickets and zzz's instead of students! #PAANO

Of course I didn't let that happen! Really noted the reasons why I felt bored in seminars, and vowed never to make the students experience that in my entire talk. :)

Made sure to insert activities in between my lectures! Since we focused on chic corporate dressing and the latest trends, we had a Styling Game! I brought clothes (blazers, skirts, tops, etc) to be used by the participants. Paandar lang tayo!!

Kagulo lang ng styling game! Super fun!!! And those who tweeted/tagged me on Instagram can attest to how fun it was. Most of the students mentioned that this was their favorite part of the seminar. And sarap lang sa puso!!!! Love them!!

I was also super tempted to just sing and not talk anymore but I'm sure the students wouldn't like to hear a sintonado singer. Hahaha! Thanks to the very talented Ivana for saving my face!!! :p

Anymoo, for the styling game, we had two teams with 3 members each (2 stylists and 1 model), and I asked them to dress up using the Fashion Formula I gave and explain where she's headed to. First up: Team Client Meeting! Hahahaha super adorbs!

Their group decided that this ensemble can take them to client meetings, lunch out with friends, and malling (sans the blazer). Good job girls!

Second was Team Halloween! Cuteness overload!!! Hahahaha! They said this was something they can wear to a busy day at work, and the blazer can keep them cozy while they work overtime. :) Couldn't agree more!

But bilang best in segue ako, I managed to squeeze in a small makeup tutorial while di ako makapag-decide sinong team ang winner! I shared with them my usual routine and go-to look when I'm off to work. Highlight - eye brows!!! :)

Medyo nagpaulan din ako ng giveaways to everyone para aliw lang!


Heartfelt thanks to UST-JPIA for having me! I'll never forget this experience!!! You guys are the best!!! ❤❤❤

I know you guys will go places! You have my prayers! :)
