Love Marie x Rocio

It was October 8 when my friends, Rocio & Heart launched their first project together,  “The Daughter of The Sun & The Moon”, a children’s book for the benefit of the Ople Center.

A brilliant collaboration in my opinion. Rocio, having a soft spot for children and the less fortunate- and Heart, with no hesitation sharing her creative talent, all for a great cause.

I was asked to host the event just about a few weeks back, and I said yes even if hosting is probably the most challenging task for me.. I always find myself pushing it to the limits. (aka Greatest Fear) Haha! So…yeah..I was pretty nervous. But I always figured that someday I’ll get over it. AND besides, it was my own little way of supporting this cause!

And then there were three..Laughing their nerves out just right after the closing remarks! ;p
