And yes, it was born on May 6, right on schedule.
Say hello to our baby!
The proud parents
L-R: Frances, Lana, Me, Sonny, Elaine, Joanna
A Shu Uemura gift pack (courtesy of our EIC Frances) was up for grabs for those who will post a photo with our May issue. Actually, merong entry si Mitor eh. Hindi ko lang na-post.
With matching Sanrio background and cotton candy!
But wait, there's more! This issue also marks my first ever fashion editorial for our magazine! You see, the mannequin + product table + studio combo has always been my formula for OK!'s fashion pages since 2008. So doing something outdoors (on a beach!), with models, with a big time fashion photographer is a breath of fresh air.
The prod team
L-R: Art Director Sonny, my assistant Nene, Managing Editor Lana, Me, Makeup Artist Jasmine Mendiola, Hairstylist Marie Tan, Model Angelie, Model Larissa, Photographer Paolo Pineda
Reunited and it feels so good!
Meet Jasmine, the person behind my styling career. Haha!
Love you, Jas!
I don't have behind-the-scene photos to share so I shall leave you with teasers:
Sheer floaty florals with a boho flair
Boho hair ideas
And yes, there's more. I also did a feature on flip-flops, which required me to...
...go into the pool just to get the shot!
Ang lamig ng tubig, ha. This was around 8AM.
