Roxy Surfer Girls of Summer

I've always wanted to be called a Roxy girl.


The Roxy girl can loves to surf.

 The Roxy girl is fun, quirky and strong.

The Roxy Girl is cool.


For the Roxy girl, summer is forever.




Roxy has always been a brand that I have aspired for. To me, I who have {previously} never touched a surf board, or braved the waves is not worthy of such association. And so I strove for it.

I can surf now. I am worthy to don surfwear and not just be a wannabe.

I was lucky to be invited last weekend to be a part of Roxy's Femme Fling at Solenad 2 in Nuvali. When Ian of M2Comms and I met up at the ROX store at BGC, my first question was: "Who chose the bloggers coming to the event?" He answered that the client did --- and my heart did a little jig of glee as I realized I could pass as a Roxy girl since the brand wanted to be associated with kikay and vain and shallow blog. It was a proud moment!

Note: While at the exit of Sta. Rosa going to Nuvali, a group of soccer players were waving at me. I am not entirely sure why. It still puzzles me to this day.

When I arrived at Solenad, the rest of the Roxy Girls {Shen, Phoebe, Trish, Issa, Lissa, Verns, Kryz, Trixie, Lace and Earth} were already having their lunch at Sumo Sam



After lunch, we were treated to a nail pampering session with Nail-a-holics, and so I had my lovely nail art, too:

I forgot the shade of the polish but it's something from Orly and it's amazing on my nails. xx

I'm glad they had energy drinks available though because someone was very sleepy from being tired the previous night. This one tastes like grape juice, too!



And then it was time for us to take photos of ourselves, our team composed of Trixie of Cosmo.ph, Kryz Uy of Thirsty Thought and Trish {whose blog escapes me now, sorry}. Our challenge was to come up with a polaroid that captures Endless Summer, with Roxy stuff grabbed in 20 seconds and shot in 30 minutes:

That's me, Kryz Uy, Trish and Trixie Reyna. Special thanks to Trixie's SO, Junjie, for taking our photo using Polaroid!

A combination of the girls' enthusiasm, fashion smarts, summer spirit and Kryz's styling {and credits of this photo!} and our laughter rehearsal, we won the challenge!

Read Kryz's post about the same event here.

This is how it looks clearer, photo from Kryz Uy:



Of course, that triumph didn't come easy: We were looked at by several curious shoppers probably thinking what the hell girls in bikinis were doing walking around Nuvali, the Nuvali guards stopped us from shooting photos and several films of the Polaroid were wasted plus our hair had grass bits in it from lying down in the grass BUT it was worth it! In the end, we were all happy girls with our Roxy stuff:

I love my Roxy pillow!
Outfit details and yes, I dressed up down for the event!

Polo: Converse
Shorts: Cotton On
Sneakers: Converse All-Star Chuck Taylors

My Roxy Haul: Rashguard, board shorts, bikini set, Roxy shirt, Roxy beach bag and flip flops.
I am a very happy girl.
I can't wait to go the Roxy surfing trip on January with the rest of the Roxy girls so I can try out my new surfing ensemble :D 


Do you like Roxy, too? I most certainly do!
