Live it Up: BDJ Fair 2014 Experience

Hello everyone! Its been quite a while since i posted here in my blog. I have been busy outside the online world. Work, responsibilities, marriage and next month im going back to school YAY!

Last October 19 Belle de Jour Power Planner launched their 2015 planner in the BDJ FAIR 2014 in SM Mall of Asia Music Hall. Its my 1st BDJ Fair and i just celebrated my 1st year as a bella so im very excited since i dont know what to expect. I arrived there by 10 am for the Scavenger hunt and i am so freaking tired with the travel alone, i live in Marikina so i need to leave like 8 am so i can be there on time.

I arrived there and the place is still not crowded,., but since im in a hurry i didnt get to take photos of the booths before they were filled with people. there are loads of sponsors in the event and its so hard to pick which one to visit!


SM MOA Music Hall (before it was filled up by excited bellas!)

So as i mentioned i was a part of the scavenger hunt (Go Team Jazz) it was very interactive and made us sweat like we just hit the gym. with all those running all over the hall and the challenges its crazy tiring. unfortunately we didnt won but we really did have a lot of fun! i didnt get to take photos during the challenges since we are so focused so let me just share to you guys some of the photos i took.

After the scavenger hunt we directly went to the registration booth so we an get the VIP Pass for our pre-registered talks that day. So i was able to get an event flyer first before anything else.


the front page shows the scheduled talks and the discounted planner prices as well.


at the back there is a map and a BDJ Fair checklist which i find very clever since i tend to mess up which booth i already visited :)


back portion of the VIP Pass


the VIP pass was only costs 100 php and its for a reason as well. The funds will go to charity 

I am pre registered for two talks. 

1st talk 
Life is your playground by Ann Jacobe
I got some helpful tips from this talk in 
Enjoying the little things, enjoying the moment, enjoy the game, losses and learning's. And the most important thing is that I need to enjoy myself and savor every moment.



2nd talk 
From Zero to Financial Hero by Edric Mendoza
I must say this is the best talk i have heard compared to all the previous BDJ events! Being an accounting student its nice to know that i am able to attend more talks about financial literacy. 
here are the highlights of the talk
1. Climb the right mountain
2. Set a Budget
3. Its not the amount you are earning, but what you are saving and investing
4. If you want to change your financial situation move to a better surrounding 
(surround yourself with people better than you so u can learn from them)
5.Work hard and always do your best.




this is Mr. Mendozas son, the youngest speaker i ever listened to.
he talked about hard work, doing your best, 
saving and investing money and being a blessing to others.


He is definitely the best speaker from the BDJ Fair in my opinion 

We all have our picks with the activities and let me share mine. THE BEST BOOTH ACTIVITY WOULD THE ZIPLINE! and the wall climbing comes second :) I never ever ever dared to do such things until the event came. For safety reasons due to weight reasons im avoiding hazardous booths but I just cant stand not to give it a try ITS MY FIRST TIME FOR BOTH! And it felt like crazy!


MY FIRST EVER ZIPLINE RIDE! 
the rush is too much to take for me, but the experience is really memorable and 
im freaking scared but it was fun!
(im pretty sure i wont do it again ever)


WALL CLIMBING BOOTH!
(30% chance that i might do it again haha)
i didnt know this will be so freaking tiring! all that arm and leg stretching,, ugh! i need some exercise! 

There are a lot of sponsors  and i cant even finish them all during my stay, there are also a lot of bellas during the event enjoying different activities.here are some photos of the very interactive booths that i visited!
















you can choose from a wife variety of fold-able comfy shoes and get to pick a prize


















  



this dance move kinda described my feelings after the event 
IM CRAZY TIRED YET HAPPY!

What else made my day?


LOOT BAG AND FREEBIES FROM PARTNER BRANDS!


I also purchased my 2015 BDJ Planner on the event for the discounted price of Php 500! 


IM VERY HAPPY WITH THE EVENT! 
I NEVER EXPECTED IT WOULD BE THIS FUN ATTENDING A BDJ FAIR.
 Im looking forward for the next event! The BDJ Team are always full of fun and surprises. 
IM A PROUD BELLA!
