More than just direct-selling, Boardwalk Business Ventures Inc sponsored the First Bloggers Forum last Friday at Ming Restaurant in Ortigas. Attended by the famous bloggers of the country, the event featured activities that challenged the fashion bloggers and the lifestyle mom bloggers to style famous models of Boardwalk, fun surprises and games and more importantly, the Run for the Pasig River set on November 20, 2011 at the Mall of Asia.
We were grouped to teams and given a model to style from the clothing line by Boardwalk in just ten minutes. I was in Group 6 with five bloggers and Rommel as our model. When our team leader, Shekinah gave him the lavender pants and we all decided that he used just a white t-shirt and a gray hood jacket on top, I asked Rommel if he would also wear what we decided for him.
He was shy at first answering my questions but when I've told him of my own son who's just a few inches smaller than him and two years shy away his age, he shared his styles of clothing and what his mom had taught him all these years. He said he'd wear practically anything asked of him but he is as simple as my son, shirts and jeans and what would be most comfortable to wear anywhere.
We were so happy winning the best style and we won P500 GC each. The other bloggers even took difficult efforts of cutting some pieces to make another wardrobe but we just chose the color and the shoes to match our individualistic modern design of rock and cool style for Rommel. I was so happy at the fun activity we participated.
What came next was even more exciting with bloggers joining the shots contest by Party Fuel Mobile Bar. I had the best laugh at blogger friends who joined because the giggles and the gags continued even after the event.
After a delicious buffet dinner from Ming's Bistro, we were shown AVPs of the first advocacy supported by Boardwalk with Run for the Pasig River slated on November 20, 2011 at the Mall of Asia. Famous celebrities Derek Ramsay, Matteo Guidecelli, Coco Martin and Karylle promoted the run which is expected to be joined by more than 150,000 runners in three categories, 3K, 5K and 10K to help raise funds for the rehabilitation of the Pasig River.
Our fellow bloggers Jeman and Flow also won a full outfit package and more GCs from Boardwalk for being the bloggers styled by the Boardwalk Style Council. All participants had a chance to ask questions about their new website with online shopping guide and online catalog for the personal shopping needs.
The new website at www.boardwalk.com.ph will allow you to be a personal shopper for your friends and family because their online catalog is updated and the sizes and style designs guide will help your fashion needs met in an instant.
