Friends Forever!

You can locate this at the "The Girls" navigation on the right sidebar. This is a live countdown.

Thanks to Daisy Path I remembered that our Friend-versary was the day before yesterday! Nina and I have been friends for exactly 4 years and 2 days now! Woohoo! We've been in each other's sides ever since and we'll continue to be!

The creation of CharNina(dot)com is mainly because of our shared thoughts, interests and stories together. Our friendship has been our foundation ever since and without that element, this site/blog will not exist.

I'm going to share to you guys what we've been for the past few years.. :) Hope you enjoy it!

P.S. Sorry for the Low Quality pictures. These are grabbed from the net and we used digicam or cellphone cameras only.

Now (2011)

LOL! Just goofing on my webcam!

I think it's alright if I don't upload our recent pics here already.. 'coz we seem to have uploaded it on our past posts here. (You can roam around and see)

I can't believe that we look extremely different and more mature now than just the past 4 years.. We've grown so much. We've changed a lot through our clothing, hairstyle, and personality. But I'm sure that what will never change is our Friendship.

Rummaging through our old picture files in Multiply made me miss being High school more.. Awww. :( High school is just so much better than College. There were still a lot of school activities back then that gave us the opportunity to bond and get to know each other. Everything seemed to be easier and we're not really afraid of failing. Unlike in College where you always stress about passing. LOL!

So for everyone out there! If you're still in High school, enjoy while it lasts! You'll never be able to bring back what you'll miss.

*DPS - our school in High School -- Great School!

Redhead Model Search

Heyyyah everyone! Char here! Gotta post this 'coz it has been on queue for like forever!
This happened on June 12 and I was just able to post it now. LOL.

So here's the story, I found out on Facebook that there will be a MODEL SEARCH for the Girl's Teens Wear Redhead brand at SM Department Stores. I first looked at the mechanics and I am so glad that the height requirement is just 5'1" or above. So I'm qualified! I'm 5'3"! lol. I immediately told Nina about it (I usually tell her these kind of things first!) and she accompanied me to SM to audition!

Registering at the Registration Area
Waiting for my turn to have my makeover!

Maybelline Products

More Maybelline Products!

My turn! <3

I just looooove free makeovers! And I want that glam makeup mirror!!

Thank you Maybelline New York for the free makeover!
Viola! I hope you can see the difference! Lol!

Unfortunately, when my photo was published on their official website, the quality wasn't good. I wasn't able to get a copy of my photo but the lighting was just poor. And I'm the only one with that kind of problem. I don't know! Maybe the photographer wasn't ready when I'm up. I even emailed Redhead regarding my concern and they edited my photo but still, it wasn't good enough. I looked edited in a bad way. It's too bad that I was not able to show them my full extent.

Imagine that I could win a 60,000 pesos of modeling contract for 1 year at SM Department Store, be the newest brand ambassador of Redhead and have an awesome experience!

But, I was not selected as one of the top 12 finalists to undergo model training and have a chance to be one of the 3 winners.. (Sad) But it's totally fine! I've moved on.. LOL! I know that I'll be experiencing lots of rejections in this field considering my lack of height and foreign-looking features, but I will not stop trying. Opportunities will keep on coming and I'll make sure that I'm ready for them all the way! Everything happens for a reason. If God made me LOVE modeling so much, then there's no way that I won't be able to fulfill my dream. He knows that I will be able make it. This was just not the right stepping stone for me, yet. I already realized one factor, the training will undergo for a week! And I have classes which I couldn't skip because of our upcoming midterm examination. So yeah, thank God! I know he's preparing a lot of better opportunities for me. Not just for me, but for all of you too! Whatever your dream in life, just keep on fighting and working for it! Take every good opportunity as it may open doors for your success!

Share me your Dream / Goal in Life.. I'm willing to listen! Just comment here!
