Verniece Enciso, a voracious blogger on topics of lifestyle, beauty, travel, and fashion, and part of the Vivo Family circle was Vivo V7+ fashion insider at the recently-concluded MEGA Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018. The MEGA Fashion Week which officially unveiled at a pre-party event last October 23 at the posh Twenty Four Seven McKinley in the heart of the bustling Bonifacio Global City, is co-sponsored by Vivo, an established smartphone brand popular for its sleek and stylish designs coupled with thumbprint, top-of-the-line features.

The happenings in the glamorous opening party graced by the who’s who in the fashion arena were all captured using the Vivo V7+ clearer-selfie, perfect shot smartphone. A host of MakingMEGA stars who have graced the covers of MEGA Magazine were also in attendance and their presence were snapped into a collection of eventful photographs using the V7+.

Verniece, who arrived in a simple but elegant wine-red number spent some time with the event guests and media at the dedicated selfie booth, taking selfies using her Vivo V7+. The show started at 9:00 pm where Verniece officially welcomed the crowd to the MEGA Fashion Week event and acknowledged the night’s special guest Dr. Vicky Belo escorted by husband Hayden Kho. She proceeded taking selfie snaps with the MEGA executives and fashion guru John Herrera who was, as well, the featured designer for the evening.

Verniece along with MEGA muses Kisses Delavin and the country’s most favorite sweetheart Kathryn Bernardo belong to Vivo’s pool of celebrity. Having supported Vivo products, the Vivo Family’s latest pride is the Vvio V7+, perhaps the best fit yet in taking the best fashion selfies. Dubbed as a selfie-centric smartphone, the V7+ boasts of a 24MP clearer selfie, front-facing camera with LED flash and smart photography algorithms which provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo, embracing the look and feel of glossy fashion centerfolds. With the V7+’s 24 MP camera’s built-in Bokeh effect, chic and polished selfies come out flavored with artful charm. The Bokeh effect—one of the most popular camera filters to come out in recent years since the advent of selfie-taking—adds a semblance of drama and imagination with its aesthetic blurred effect. Moreover, the V7+’s Face Beauty 7.0 feature  gives out selfies with an airbrush perfection as its beautifying aftereffect produces fresher and brighter-looking skin, with a host of filters to pick from to fit the day’s mood or the OOTD’s feel and aura.

7 Things to Love in Thailand

Magical Thailand Experience in 5 Days

Amazing attractions, good food, and awesome people are probably every traveler’s top 3 criteria on choosing a travel destination and finding all those things in one country is surely a dream come true! For a blogger like me, it is imperative to find instagrammable areas to take photos in. Last July, I was given the opportunity to explore Thailand for 5 days and it was a whirlwind experience. In any case, here are my seven favorite things about Thailand:

The price is right

Almost everything is cheaper in Thailand: food, souvenirs, and even clothing! When things that are considered quite luxurious back in your country are within your budget, it is easy to spend a lot and not even realize.

Food is not an issue

I’d be honest; I am not an adventurous eater. I was really worried about finding food or going hungry. To my surprise, all sorts of food can be found at all hours. You can find literally any kind of cuisine whether it be Italian, Mexican, Indian or whatever it is that you crave. There are night markets that offer wide-variety of food and snacks. There are also various restaurant options, from cheap ones to more upscale ones. Not to mention that there are 24/7 convenience stores on almost every alley and many delivery options. Cheap and good food is available at all times which make it nearly impossible not to gain weight.

Lit nightlife, if you’re into that

There are numerous tourist spots like Soi Cowboy and Khao San Road which are insane! They are a must-see, especially for tourists like us who are far beyond from being party animals, because chances are you have never experienced anything quite like that. There are many clubs and lounges to choose from, especially in Sukhumvit Road and Ekamai.

Spa is everywhere

Not everyone enjoys being touched nor massaged but to me, having the mere option of getting a massage or a foot spa on almost every alley is awesome. Bangkok is filled with spa and massage places. The cost ranges from Php 150-1000 for an hour which is definitely a steal.

Thai people

Thai people are exceptionally kind and friendly. No wonder Thailand is known as the “Land of Smiles”. Even if they don’t understand how we speak, they still smile.

Its serenity

Thailand is known for its various temples that thousands of tourists visit each day. The ones in Ayutthaya like Wat Chaiwatthanaram, Wat Mahathat and many other old ruins are very peaceful. If you are someone who wants to break free from stress, you may want to consider visiting Thailand. Imagine yourself, taking on a walk whilst appreciating good sights and breathing in some fresh air. What can be more peaceful, right?

The country is versatile

You don’t have to be a temple-lover to visit Thailand. If you love historical places, you can check out Ayutthaya. If you love nature and beaches, you will adore Pattaya. If you are a party animal, there are numerous places for you. If you love food, Thailand is totally the place to be! You can do so much stuff in Thailand that there will surely be no dead air.

COSMIC: The iACADEMY 15th Anniversary Kick-off Celebration


Dare to be different. BE A GAME CHANGER!

The school is the training ground for our future careers. With the continually rising demand for globally competitive professionals, it is now more important than ever to choose the right educational institution to provide proper training and character-building.

iACADEMY sees to develop Game Changers to lead the advancement of society. It aims to reinvent education to address the ever changing needs of the industry.

iACADEMY continues to lead and provide the most conducive and effective learning environment for globally competitive individuals because we believe that it is not enough to just have students trained by people who practice their trade, but more so, to place them in the midst of the corporations that will allow them to grow not only as competent workers, but also as relevant leaders, the kind of people that we like to call “Game Changers”—Vanessa L. Tanco, President & CEO


Last January 27, I was given the opportunity to participate in #COSMIC, the 15th Anniversary Kick-off Celebration of iACADEMY which was held at the Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati. In point of fact, this is only the first in a series of events for this year which target to recognize and acclaim the talents, achievements and contributions of iACADEMY’s students and alumni who are referred to as Game Changers.


The event started off with the welcoming remarks from Ms. Vanessa L. Tanco, the President & CEO of iACADEMY. After which, they unveiled this year’s anniversary logo that was designed by one of their students.

The event showcased a wide-variety of activities. There were short film and animated film screenings, fashion and art exhibit, various activity booths, live art, and performances from artists “Oh, Flamingo!”, “Reese Lansangan”, “Jensen and The Flips”, “Autotelic”, and the famous “Itchyworms”.

I feel so grateful to have been chosen as one of the bloggers who covered this event. It was a great honor for me to have witnessed live the creative performances and works of the iACADEMY students. Congratulations on your 15th year, iACADEMY! May you continue to produce more Game Changers in the years to come.

Make a statement with Calypso PH’s classy accessories

Calypso PH bracelets — REDdefines

With today’s fast-paced updates and trends in fashion, it’s a bit difficult to make a statement. Sometimes, a good top and bottom plus your favorite sneakers fall short in expressing the statement that you want to make and that’s when you should consider investing in good and classy accessories that would accentuate your look. Don’t get me wrong because I, for one, spends a lot in putting up ensembles or OOTD but I’ve always been fond of going the extra mile and thus, accessorizing.

Calypso PH offers timeless style for men and women. I opted for their Greek Bracelets, Santorini & Athens, because they suit my personal style well. Surprisingly, their products do not only look good, but also have their own meanings and uses! The Santorini bracelet is made of 5mm Snowflake Obsidian beads which is a stone of purity that brings balance to the body, mind and spirit. On the other hand, my favorite, the Athens bracelet is made of 5mm Quartz beads which resonate strongly within the eighth chakra, commonly known as the soul star chakra, and within the higher transpersonal chakras. What could be more interesting right?
