MAMMA MIA the Musical - a night of full-blown ABBA!

I have been waiting for Mamma Mia for quite awhile! I love Abba ever since I was a kid (infuence of my parents) and since I'm a fan of theater, this was just perfect! I was so excited that I bought tickets for the first gala night! Went with my good friends and we're all giddy to listen to Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Gimme Gimme Gimme etc! The end of the show we all stood up and danced Waterloo and Dancing Queen! Too bad we were not allowed to take pictures inside the theater, and I used the iPhone camera so it's not SLR quality. Oh well, no matter, it was definitely worth-watching!

Mamma Mia merchandise / souvenirs are available for purchase

I was trying to imitate the girl! Haha!

First Outfit Post for 2012

First day of work and I'm kinda sluggish! Haha, that's the problem if I get a long vacation, I have a hard time going back to work!  
Anyway, below is my first outfit post for 2012.  The cashmere cardigan I'm wearing is from Benetton.  I just love it because it feels so luxurious!

Looking Back At 2011. Looking Forward for a Fabulous 2012!!!

2011 was the year I had the courage to start thepinkmateproject. I am not a writer but I find that blogging is a way for me to express how much I love fashion, makeup, food and traveling. Maintaining this blog is a good de-stress after work, because all the other bloggers you encounter are just nice and fabulous!!!  One word to describe blogging - POSITIVITY!  

A lot to be thankful for, it was a fairly good year.  

Some highlights of 2011:

1.  My very first entry at thepinkmateproject - Spending Time with the Masters
     My love for food has been confirmed by the event which I started 2010, The Miele Masters Series.  Meeting all the top chefs in the country was truly unforgettable, that's why this was my first post. 

with Ms. Margarita Fores (Cibo, Lusso, Pepato and Cafe Bola)

2. Fashionable year - my different looks for 2011

3. Fashion Companion - bought different books that would inspire me and my outfits

4. Gadget addiction - ever since I started blogging, I have been attracted to different gadgets in the market.

5. Travels - One of my love is traveling and discovering new places here in the Philippines and abroad. 

Ilocos - my home town

Baguio - I've always loved the weather and pine trees.

La Luz - sea, sun and sand, always the best R & R

Vietnam - the heat is always on in Saigon

6. Makeup Class - this year I enrolled at CCMA for a make up course.  This is to enhance my skills in putting makeup, not just on me but on others.  

To all my pinkmates, thank you for the continued support and visits in my blog!

CHEERS to a more fashionable and fabulous 2012!!!

Your pinkmate,

Vanessa :)
