If there's one thing that we, Filipinos, can take pride off, and I'm sure you'll agree with me on this, that'll be MULTI-TASKING. May it be in our work, in our society or in our home, multi-tasking is in our blood and we are so damn good about it!
And last week, as I was invited to the book launch of Miss Jenni Epperson, Nuffnang's 2011 Best Lifestyle Blog Awardee, at SM North EDSA The Block, I got to witness one living proof of it. But on this book launch, I didn't see that "ngarag" multi-tasker, but instead a full-time mom and wife that also bears that true-blooded fashionista aura and knows how to play around with food, fashion and life.
I got to meet Miss Epperson before in an event where her photographs were exhibited. Her works made an impact to me that led me to following her on Twitter and on her blog www.jenniepperson.com. Through these media, I got an additional glimpses of her other works that really inspire me to be good in some "creative stuff" that I do. And now, as she released a hard copy of her best works, there's no need to ask me if I'm dying to have one... because I am really dying to have her book Fashion + Food: Entertaining at Home in Style!
It was during that launch that I finally introduced myself to her. As a fan, it was really a treat to shake the hands of your idol, but when I had a chance to talk to her and found out how "kalog" she is, I just fall to the pit of the "avid fan" tag. And I'm willing to shout it out to the whole wide world. Hehe.
I never thought that she was that really cool! And to openly share her cool ideas and funny experiences, with no hesitations at all, I knew that even the other people who doesn't know her that much that started to like her too.
Her book touches a bit of her personal favorites in life, and with a nice mix and match of colors, taste and playful mind on fashion and food, she gave birth to Fashion + Food: Entertaining at Home in Style.
I had a chance to look at some of the pages of her book, and I must say that with the juicy information that you can get here, your life will surely change!
Plus, with the amazing photos taken by her husband, Tom Epperson, you'll never regret that you bought a book worth Php1,100.
Jenni Epperson's book Fashion + Food: Entertaining at Home in Style is available at all National Bookstore branches.
This book launch is made possible by SM North EDSA The Block and National Bookstore.
It is my pleasure meeting you in person Miss Epperson! Keep up the good work, and thank you for making us, Pinoy Bloggers, so proud! Your achievement in the blogging world will serve as an inspiration to all of us!
To more blogs, books and book launchings! :-)
