Last February 27, I was invited by shu uemura to an afternoon fete / press launch at SoFA where they unveiled the new spring collection, ob for shu uemura! ob, as I mentioned in my previous post, is an up and coming contemporary artist in Japan, and is also the apprentice of well-renowned artist, Takashi Murakami.
We had afternoon tea and snacks in a dreamy setting that very much reminded me of Alice in Wonderland!
No one could resist all the french pastries being served at the event! Yum!
Besides the scrumptious food, there were also other activities for the guests to participate in. There were three activity areas – the calligraphy art area, nail art area and post your dream area.
The talented girl behind the calligraphy is actually my friend Alexis who was my batchmate in Ateneo! She blogs regularly at Ink Scribbler. It was her debut as a calligrapher, and it wasn’t surprising that everyone at the event loved her work so much! You can really pass it off as a real font!
In the post your dream area, I wrote down on a piece of paper that I wished to have unlimited flights to Japan and Europe, LOL.
The spring sakura display by the entrance, featuring the four princesses in the collection. Now I can’t wait to go back to Japan for cherry blossom season!

Long-time college friend Reggie who works for Cosmo now! Bumping into her always makes my day. Also, can we trade faces please? I wish to be effortlessly stunning too T_T
Back at the press launch, shu uemura took the opportunity to recognize four prominent ladies in society as tribute to women’s month! Here is Cherry Blossom Princess Jenni Epperson and her daughter wearing matching outfits. I could only wish to be half as fashionable as her when it’s my turn to become a mom!
Ever-so-bubbly Ocean Princess Tessa Prieto-Valdez and her daughter also in the cutest matching outfits. As usual, she was so funny! Definitely the life of any party.

Me with shu uemura retail manager Nadia and shu uemura senior brand manager Nina.
Bloggers with junior product manager Karen! With beauty bloggers Jheng of I Am Brigitte, Angela of Lush Angel, and Martha of The Beauty Junkee. I love how we all came in theme! I swear we didn’t talk about our outfits! (Thanks to Apartment 8 for my cut-out shoulder top.)
I’m totes getting my hands on this collection once it’s out in stores because everything just screams kawaii and I can never resist effective products WITH beautiful packaging. <3
