Hello beautiful people! I had so much fun today. The fulfilling kind of fun. Fun that I have not experienced in a very long time. I’ve been working in the hospital for about 6 years now and I have to say it is a routine job. Don’t get me wrong, it’s the profession I studied for 4 years and yes, it pays the bills and I do love what I do but sometimes working in a toxic hospital burns me out. And once in a while I need a diversion. An outlet. Something I love doing other than being a Pharmacist. Today, the diversion I was looking for happened.
I am a big fashion junkie. I love clothes. The make up. The hair. The accesories. The whole entourage it comes with. One of my closest friends here who is a very successful make up artist, Yona Pacheco of Your Make Up Call, asked me to accompany her in one of her gigs for today. She had no one to go with and asked me. You know the feeling, just to have some one you know to be there with you in a pool of people you haven’t actually met but agreed to work with. So of course I said yes. Who would say no? She was actually asked to do a cover shoot for Brand Magazine. It’s a four year old magazine. An Urban Professional’s Magazine. It has everything from lifestyles to mobiles and gadgets, clothes and the latest fashion and even cars. They did the shoot here in Camayan Resort in SBMA with a Mini Cooper by the way.
So Yona did her thing with the make up. Worked her magic on them. She is by far one of the best MUA this city has ever had. And I’m not saying that because she is my friend. I’m saying it because I know it’s true. I’ve seen a lot of her works and everything is just amazing. She did my make up once when I was part of the entourage in my best friend’s wedding.
I got really excited because I was really curious on how things work behind the camera. I got to help too. I did their hair. I helped out on the wardrobe department. A lot of talking with new people. These people? The epitome of the saying “When you’re having fun, you don’t have to work a day in your life.” It was a long but seriously fun day. So much fun!
