Whew, what a weekend that was!
As part of the dynamic Northern Luzon SM Supermalls, SM City Cauayan successfully organized the BLOGGER MANIA last weekend – It is a social gathering of online celebrities like bloggers and blog enthusiasts who share the same interests like beauty, fashion, and fitness.
The event was indeed loaded with so many lessons all about things fashionable, beauty, and health & fitness which were graced by the guest bloggers who are considered to be most followed and experts on these fields through masterclasses.
Say Tioco, an online influencer, brands endorser, a beauty and lifestyle vlogger who has been doing make up tutorial videos since 2010, led and did the Beauty Masterclass on the first day.
She did 3 on the spot make-up look such as day-time, night time and No Make-up, make-up look , with Revlon as make-up brand partner.
I was in awe on how good she is, and I actually learned and picked up some make-up tips and lessons that were new to me. I love how she repeatedly said that “doing make-up has no rules”, on which I thought is clever.
The Soloist, composed of individually good singers also performed and serenaded us with good songs in between breaks for the make-up masterclasses. And swear to God, they’re all good!
And for the Day 2 of the event, everyone got PRETTY DARN’d FIT as we all took the Health and Fitness Masterclass with the one and only, Nikki Torres. She’s a fitness designer, yoga teacher and the creator of the Toning + Dance Cardio Workout called NT Sweat. She also advocates holistic approach towards overall wellness in order to sustain a healthy, balanced lifestyle and she loves to move and is always on the lookout for the best ways to break a sweat.
She shared health and fitness lessons and we were all engaged on the topics she discussed. In this modern day and age wherein processed foods are abundant, we should really think twice on the food that we put in our mouth and always think that health is indeed our wealth.
I have waited for this weekend to happen, and I would say, one of the best weekends I had so far and one of the best SM City Cauayan events that I have attended. Why? First, it’s an event for bloggers, and other blog and social media enthusiasts and also to those who aspire to be bloggers. I mean? C’mon… It rarely happens here and with the small community of bloggers and the likes here in our region? The event organizers were able to pull it off, and that’s really amazing! Plus, this event was also an opportunity to encourage others to do something, and be part of the ever growing blogosphere community.
Secondly, I was treated with so much hospitality that is common and expected to every SM employees and I am thankful for SM City Cauayan for giving me such a wonderful opportunity.

Overall, I would describe the event as momentous! Was the long trip and my weekend worth it? I’d say a huge YES!
