HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAMILLE CO!!

I've wanted to be a style blogger way before I actually started this blog. At the time, I was hesitant about doing it because I had so many insecurities and thoughts running through my mind. Would anyone even read my blog? Would anyone care? Would I be able to pull it off? These doubts kept preventing me from actually going ahead and doing what I wanted to do. 

Now, many of you might not know this, but the one person that really inspired me was Camille Co. I'm sure you all know her by now. After all, she's one of the top bloggers here in the Philippines, and her personal style is being recognized worldwide. On top of that, she's also a designer. If there's anyone I aspire to be like, it's definitely Camille Co.


Imagine my elation when I was one of the few people she invited to her birthday dinner last night! I have to be honest, I was extremely nervous! On the days leading up to the dinner, I was stressing out about what to wear LOL. After all, it's not everyday that one can have dinner with their fashion icon, and I did not want to disappoint Camille!

In order to spare you all from being bombarded by so many photos of the event, I will be dividing this post into two parts.




Being as excited as I was, I was one of the few who arrived early at the dinner, which took place in the Early Bird Breakfast Club at the Century City Mall. We all waited eagerly at the outdoor dining area for Camille to arrive.



When the doors opened and we were finally allowed to take our seats inside, I was taken aback by the interior design of the restaurant. I hadn't eaten there before, so I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised. Everything looked so cute and cozy, and the restaurant had an overall comfortable feel. Each of us in attendance were given pink bags filled with all sorts of goodies courtesy of Camille and her sponsors.



Finally, after much anticipation, Camille Co arrived, looking as stylish as ever!



I have to say that the food at the Early Bird Breakfast Club was simply superb! We were served a three-course meal complete with appetizer, a main course, and dessert.




What struck me the most was how beautifully plated each dish was. They all seemed like works of art, and to be honest, I didn't want to eat any of it because I didn't want to ruin the design LOL!

After eating, it was time for Camille Co to share a special announcement.





Now, I can't tell you what the announcement was. I'm sworn to secrecy! But let's just say that bigger and better things are coming for Camille, and I am so proud of her and all that she's achieving.

After the announcement, it was time for a little fun and games. Aside from the goody bags we all received, Camille still had a few prizes to give away, including boxes of Olay Regenerist, SM Accessories GC's, and Vidal Sassoon products. That's how generous she is. It was HER birthday celebration, but WE ended up getting gifts!





It was so surreal to be able to have dinner with my idol and actually have long conversations with her. Camille was extremely nice and she engaged each of us in lengthy conversations, and she even gave me advice about my plans after college and my dreams of becoming a writer, lawyer, and stylist. I learned so much from her that night. She really is the complete package -- beautiful inside and out, and very smart, humorous, and down-to-earth as well.


She even signed my goody bag!


Before I end this post, here's a photo of me with the chef of the Early Bird Breakfast Club. He's quite good-looking, right? LOL.


Stay tuned for my next blog post, with more photos of the dinner and detailed shots of my OOTD. Cheers to my newfound friendships from last night!
