BDJ Rendezvous: Work Your Way To The Top

Last weekend, Belle de Jour (BDJ) Power Planner hosted another BDJ Rendezvous at SM North EDSA.

The workshop was entitled "Work Your Way To The Top", which aims to inspire us Bellsa to take the spotlight and drive our way to success.

The event was hosted by Ms. Tracy Abad - who was so bubbly and entertaining. Before the speakers started with their talks, we had games first. Winners got a gift pack from Strip.

Stay on the Beat with Donna Miranda

The first speaker was Donna Miranda, where we were given tips on how to develop our love for dance and music.

Express and Impress with PJ Lanot

The second speaker was my favorite part of the event. I bet most Bellas would agree with me on this! PJ was so funny and entertaining, but very effective and credible as well when it comes to training people on how to develop communication skills. Even the outsiders who were just passing by stopped by and listed to his segment.

Actions speak louder than words.

We were taught the "match and lead" style of communicating with people. Most of all, body language was more important than the words and the tone you use to say it. And when it comes to heated situations, always remember HEAT:
  • Hear
  • Empathize
  • Accept/apologize
  • Take charge

With PJ Lanot

After the 2 speakers, we had a break and snacks were served.

Afterwards, there was a game again where a lucky lady won a pair of shoes from Parisian.

Work in Style with Sidney Yap

Admit it, whether intentionally or not intentionally, we often judge people with the clothes they wear. It can be something like seeing a person all dressed up and thinking, "Where's the party?" Personally, I admire people who have the guts to dress differently yet appropriately. Sidney Yap shared with us tips on how to create a fabulous 1st impression through your style.

The best tip I learned: Dress for the job you want (not for the job you have).

Stress-Proof Your Skin with Sherlynmae Reyes

We were also given tips on the proper approach to maintain a healthy and beautiful glowing skin with Kiehl's.

Tons of raffle prizes were given away that day, and in true BDJ tradition, no Bella left empty-handed!

Winners of SM GTW gift packs (Hi, Laurice!)

Winners of Zen Zest Cabinet Deodorizers (Hi, Aleckzandra and Chona!)

Winners of a P500 SM GC (Hi, Lyn and Mau!)

Winners of a free pair of shoes from Free Fish. LUCKY! (Hi, Lala!)

With my Bella friends, Laurice, Lala, and Aleckzandra! ♥

Here's my loot! I won a Zen Zest gift pack from the raffle, and all the other stuff were included in the loot bag. Among all the stuff I got, my favorite would have to be the samples from Too Cool For School, a new Korean makeup brand. I'll talk about that in a separate post.

Thanks for the fun-filled day, BDJ! It was so nice to spend time with my Bella friends.♥
