Styling Project Update: Aileen Apolo Tastefully Served ...

It’s been a long time coming but here she is, my dear fashionistas, **Google Philippines Country Consultant** **Ms. Aileen Apolo**, after putting together the ingredients and sprucing them up.

Just a quick trackback to how this project came about. During one of the meet ups with the BoB crew and the organisers of the **Blog Awards**, there was talk about the dress code for the event.

Armed with these ideas, we went about the shopping task only a few days before the event and even made the arrangement with the hair and make up artist the night before the event.
