It was a magical weekend at Estancial Mall in Capitol Commons! We’ve been attending the Belle de Jour (BDJ) Power Planner Launch in the past (though not consecutive) years. I can remember tagging my entire family for a launch which BDJ did at SM North Sky Dome and at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay. This year, the anticipation, emotional commotion, and magic culminated in Pasig at its October 20-21 Weekend Launch. Every year is a different theme, different mechanics of how to secure a pass but with the same fun and unexplained excitement that a planner could bring!
BDJ Planners allow you access to tons of freebies and promos of your favorite brands all throughout the year. It will also help you get special access to different purposeful and self-improvement events that BDJ organizes together with other fellow Bellas in the BDJ community. Taking a hold of one of their planners mean loving yourself a little more and sharing that love to others just a little bit more.
There were different types of event pass which Bellas could avail. My sister had her Silver Pass while I got the Basic Pass. We registered online through the BDJ website . I got my customized Limited Edition BDJ Planner 2019 (see my website’s name on the cover) and a Basic Pass all for Php550! My sister coupled her Silver Pass with a Navi Journal. We were able to get our customized planners at the event itself, without waiting for so long as the event was just four days after I ordered. Purchases ade through the website can also be paid online or through bank’s mobile app transfers so the purchasing experience was totally convenient. Order confirmations and tickets were also sent through email.
It was raining promos and freebies long before the launch. With BDJ, exciting promos and freebies await all throughout the year,actually.
What are the inclusions of the Basic Pass? The magical experience of all things related to journaling and scrapbooking, that is! Sharing our BDJ experiences with you below:
1.Glam Booth courtesy of Parisian Shoes and Bag; Glam Boomerang of Celeteque; and makeup sale booth of Revlon
2. Access to the Crafters Area. This area has stores for scrapbooking, journaling, and calligraphy. There are items for sale and lots of items which can be used for free like stamps.
3. Glitter Tattoo
4. One of the highlights of a BDJ Launch event is the lineup of free talks given by different inspirational personalities who are creating ripples of positive change in their own respective fields. Listening to them for just some minutes will inspire you to take a hold of your own life so you can help other people who don’t have the opportunity (and let’s admit it, the privileges) that we enjoy. Upon confirmation of the event pass, we were given the chance to select the talks we wanted in the event. This year, the reservation for the talks was just a reservation for a seat. It was a wonderful thing that Bellas who were lining up for the Glitter Tattoo and Gratitude Jar and even those in the walk way were able to listen to the speakers.
What can a Silver Pass do then? Silver and Gold Passes may be priced higher but they got more in freebies, too. That BDJ Box given to silver and gold pass holders was well over the top up price compared to a Basic Pass. They also get access to the Gratitude Jar area and one Calligraphy or Instagram Photography Class.
Silver and Gold pass got that Baskin Robbins ice cream, too. After my sister’s calligraphy class, I found her buying stuff I’m sure is more than what she’ll really be using. See that grin!Over the years, BDJ has evolved from being a planner to a community of empowered Bellas empowering other people. BDJ is more than just the planner and that’s what will make you choose BDJ over and over again, year after year. It has a cause, a passion, and a purpose. As you plan your life and jot down your own personal history, the truth is you are affecting the lives and history of the rest of the world, too, and BDJ will make sure you realize that.
