as soon as we found out there was a special event for ed westwick(chuck bass of gossip girl) at the peninsula, i immediately booked a salon appointment with my favorite make up artist lourd ramos. lourd has been doing my make-up for some of my most special events since my early 20s(I KNOW! some people i know has been going to him since their teens). i was joined by two of my friends and we had such a great time laughing with lourd at his new salon – creations at glorietta 5(perfect location as the event was just at the pen!).

unfortunately, there were no photos with ed as we could not take any cameras even our very own smartphones inside the venue. but as i am a numbers person, i didn’t want my investment, that having spent some time and money to look good that night, go to waste. we needed to recoup our ROI or Return on Investment:

Return on Investment or ROI:
“A performance measure used to evaluate the efficiency of an investment or to compare the efficiency of a number of different investments.”

so how does one get her ROI in this case? do a “photoshoot” at the pen lobby, of course!





we were channeling our inner upper eastsiders! LOL. and yes, we were really embarrassing at the pen, some people were already laughing at us but we have no shame. we like to art direct/style our photos even for facebook/flickr uploads and we think you should do, too :)
