So what can you do in 60 seconds? I for one can finish a bag of chips, brush my teeth, drink a glass of water, I can tweet and upload a photo on my Instagram. Easy right? Well what if you’re tasked to shop 24,000 pesos worth of clothes, shoes,accessories and the like in sixty seconds? Can you do it? I thought I couldn’t but then again I did! (Parang Minute To Win It lang!)
Last Friday, I together with five other bloggers were invited by Nivea for their Nivea Express Raid challenge that happened at Forever 21 in SM Megamall. In correlation to the event, NIVEA is highlighting their Express Body Hydration Lotion which hydrates your skin in 60 seconds and gives you 24hr+ protection with its Hydra IQ technology.
I can attest to NIVEA’s Express Hydration Lotion as I have dry skin. Dry to the point that there’s flaking. So when this was first introduced to me, I immediately fell in love with it. It instantly gives moisture without leaving a sticky feeling on the skin which is perfect with Manila’s tropical weather.
So back to the challenge, I’m sure you’re all curious to know what happened during the event? Here are tons of photos to help me narrate to you all what transpired that fun-filled day.
The event happened at eight in the morning where (I think) all six of us bloggers really made an effort waking up extra early that day. Spell kape!
We were given two minutes to have a quick look at the store. Imagine how huge Forever 21 is so it was overwhelming to shop. Look at my face as I look around and scout for things I want.
I have two shopping bags that I wasn’t able to use at all! haha
Looking at our loots.
With Raisa Mislang of NIVEA. Thank you for taking my photos
Anticipation is building up as we wait for our total amount.
The waiting portion.
I CANNOT BELIEVE IT’S ME
I seriously wasn’t expecting it as my mind wanders every morning so I assumed my total score is either below or above 24,000 pesos. I guess I was lucky. Vern would’ve been the winner if the dress she got wasn’t on sale. Anyway, it took me a few good seconds before I giddily reacted because like I said, I couldn’t believe it!

I got to take home the goodies I picked. Yahooo!
I also got these from NIVEA.
I’m posting the photos of the items that I got from the Express Raid challenge. As of today, I already have the sizes change to my size but sadly not all have my size pa so some items were replaced with something else. Don’t worry, I’m going to do outfit shots naman soon
I’m liking golds, glitters and sequins lately. I know they seem to stand out as what they’re purposely made but I guess with proper styling, you can wear them on a casual coffee date or even dinner out.
And because I love sequins, would you believe that I got this dress for 300+ pesos?! Yes, this lovely dress retails for 1, 700- pesos but it was double marked for the sale. I love it!
