Hey, everyone! These past few months have been so eventful. I’ve attended press events left and right for both Greta’s Junkyard and Calyxta. Instead of writing about each event in separate posts, I decided to compile everything in this one! Check out this press event roundup that took place from September to early November.
Press Event Roundup
September 26, 2017
I attended the event of EPSON celebrating John Herrera and his works. It was held in Shangri-La Plaza, where I got to meet John himself.

I think every girl, at one point in her life, had an obsession with @barbie. I had my own collection, and I used to bring them everywhere! My favorite was the mermaid Barbie and I had a Barbie and Kelly combo complete with a stroller. 😂 I think the huge role that Barbie played in all of our lives is exactly what makes the #BarbieLovesPlainsAndPrints Holiday Collection so nostalgic. The pieces are all inspired by what Barbie Dolls would wear, yet still maintain the timelessness of @plainsandprints’ clothing. I can super imagine myself wearing all of them this holiday season, especially to events and reunions. 😍 I also had a lot of fun attending this launch with my life-sized Barbie Doll in tow, who I kept dragging around to take photos of in every corner of the #PlainsAndPrintsExperience dollhouse—my baby girl and Editorial Assistant, @maaanfernandez. I think this is the happiest I’ve seen her, in all of the events we’ve attended together for @calyxtabeauty. 😂 She loves her pink just as much as I love my purple! Anyway, more about this Barbie x Plains & Prints collaboration soon on #GretasJunkyard and #CalyxtaBeauty. 💜
Love, love, love @penshoppe’s CSR campaign that focuses on anti-bullying, and encourages people to fully embrace what makes them different. Looking back at all the times I was made fun of, was taken advantage of because I was a pushover, and was picked on for being weird and awkward, I can’t help but laugh it off now because it was precisely those moments that made me stronger and gave me a better perspective. I was extremely insecure growing up because I always believed I wasn’t the smartest nor the prettiest (sometimes, I have a tendency to still believe that) and I tried to overcompensate by playing softball and Ultimate, learning how to play the piano and guitar and joining a band, and working really, really hard to get what I want (to the point that I sometimes obsess over it). But nowadays, because I’ve fully embraced what makes me ME (love for writing, wrestling, makeup, Ultimate, Draco Malfoy, and all), I’m a lot more stable and it’s become easier to brush off comments from people who don’t really matter. As long as I surround myself with people who genuinely have my best interests at heart, and who love and accept me despite my flaws and eccentricities, all izzz gooood. 🤘🏻 Kudos to #Penshoppe for promoting self-love, and for emphasizing that it’s okay to be different. 💜 #IAmDifferent #GretasJunkyard #DamingHugotSaSinabi #LOL
