MMU all over + a story of a fan

I attended an anniversary celebration of my favorite Filipino author, Martha Cecilia..She celebrated her 13 years of Romance Writing yesterday, October 25, 2008 at Jade Valley Restaurant in Tomas Morato.

I began reading Matha Cecilia's works when I was still in high school (year 2000)..I collect her Kristine and Sweetheart Series..those are my favorites..then in July of 2005, I read in one of her books an email address where we can contact her..of course, being a fan of her works, I emailed her immediately..I actually gave her a testimonial haha..and when she replied, I was really ecstatic..she told me that I can join her forum (made by one of her fans for her www.eirycat.proboards50.com)..luckily, I was part of the first ever EB/get together of the forum and that was when I met her personally and the time we started to become friends..fast forward to today..it has been more than 3 years already but we are still close..seeing each other whenever there are book signings or just simple get togethers on food courts and malls..and I am happy that I can really feel I am special in her eyes :)


This is my look yesterday night..I wore a very simple dress and a white knitted bolero and silver peep toe flats...I didn't wear the black dress and beige high-heeled sandals Vanessa helped me to choose (thanx for that sis!) because I was told there are a lot who will wear black that night and I realized that I need to be on my feet for most of the time since I was an organizer of the party too :)

My makeup is simple..and of course, all MMU..I really can't say enough that I love love how MMU can make me look flawless in pictures haha :D

I also used MMU for my legs since I was wearing a dress..I used Dreamworld foundie in Luna formulation all over my legs and I looked like I have stockings on! Cool hehe..check this picture out..it looks flawless even though I have so many insect bites on my legs :)

Try using your MMU foundies on your body too! it really works ..very photogenic :)
