Belle De Jour (BDJ) planners have been around for quite some time now. However I only became a certified “Bella” (term being used for those who have BDJ planners) when I bought my discounted planner at the BDJ Fair in 2011. There are a lot of perks from being a Bella, and not just the freebies.
1. MUD Personalized Make-Up Tutorial
Perhaps one of the biggest freebies I got was this make up session from MUD at Serendra, my prize from a contest I joined in the BDJ Passion Series last year. I really learned a lot from the MUA, Ms. Myr Lim, and it got me more curious about make-up that I updated/upgraded my stuff in the course of months.
2. TGIF’s Stars Behind thr Bar
Of all the BDJ events I attended, this was the one I enjoyed the most. Although it had a fee, which was reasonable actually, it came with good food and a show from TGIF’s best bartenders. And I was actually a bit sociable that night, and I did not even drink that much!
3. Fellow Bellas
Usually I’m anti-social when I attend BDJ events (Bellas’ age bracket are usually teens to twenty-somethings), but I do meet people and greet them when I recognize them.
The BDJ’s definition of freebies do not only come from the planner’s coupons but also from the goodie bags from their well-organized events.
One of the best freebies I availed of from the coupons is this chicken fingers from TGIF:
I also enjoyed using the coupon from Ace Water Spa, Benefit, and for Mama, Kiehl’s and Flipsters.
And these masks were one of the many loots that I got from the BDJ events I attended this year:
Just a few days ago, I received my 2014 BDJ Planner as my raffle prize for answering the survey last summer!
Guess I really enjoyed being a BDJ Bella. Thanks BDJ for organizing those events that make my weekends quite interesting and enjoyable. Looking forward to more next year! And I can’t wait to use my 2014 planner!
