Bay Area Takeover II x SOLTI Activewear

Bay Area Takeover II x SOLTI Activewear

09.09.17 marks the day of Cebu’s biggest hip hop beach party at the Ibiza Beach Club, Movenpick Hotel, Cebu. I’m so grateful to have been a part of such a fresh event, thanks to Ed Roberson who made it all come to life. Ed Roberson and his wife, Marivic moved to Cebu only a few months ago and they have already turned Cebu’s party scene around. Both from San Francisco, they brought their expertise and originality to nightlife and events, which keeps everyone on their toes waiting to see what they have next in store…

I wasn’t in town for Bay Area Takeover I, but I saw the videos and it was definitely “turnt”! So when Ed approached me to collaborate with him for the second event, I automatically said, YES. He then mentioned that Kehlani’s tour DJ, Noodles and a Bay Area rapper, P-Lo would be performing at the party… I was totally in.

I instantly got my SOLTI Girls together and started planning the SOLTI Activewear runway for the event. The girls and I were super excited and the rest was history! Everything went down smoothly; P-Lo & Noodles killed it, and the SOLTI Girls were just perfect. For those who couldn’t make it, there will be a next time!

Around 9PM P-Lo hit the stage while Noodles spun his songs, including his big new hit, “Put Me On Somthin’”. The SOLTI Girls walked out one by one as P-Lo started performing. They danced and flirted with P-Lo as they posed on stage, showcasing SOLTI’s versatile, colorful, and sexy designs.

For those of you living under a rock, Wonderfruit is ready for their next, magical event this coming December 14-17th, 2017!!! Ticket prices go up on the 5th September so make sure you don’t miss out on their pre-selling tickets! I realize that I haven’t been very active but this I need to share…

This February, 2017 was my first experience with Wonderfruit and I can tell you this, it was spectacular… and just so you get the feel of what I experienced, here are videos of our daily diary at Wonderfruit by the amazing, Sebastien Gilbert from Maldavar Films

DAY 1

DAY 3

As you can see, Wonderfruit is full of color and surprises. There are so many activities available such as, pottery, paper mache, yoga, meditation, dance, talks, and so much more! And even though you will be in the middle of a beautiful nowhere, the atmosphere will always be vibrant and full of life ♡

The glamping tents were awesome! There were 2 queen sized airbeds, a lamp, a mirror, an aircon/fan (depending on which tent you choose), and a safety box. Only people staying at the glamp site were granted permission to enter and the bathrooms and showers were totally clean. Use the showers before 9am to skip long lines!

Dancing and chilling on everyone’s favorite stage, The Solar Stage. This superb stage was designed and created by Gregg Fleishman, whose creations are regular highlights at the Burning Man festivals. Below is a photos taken by Sebastien Gilbert of the stage lit up at night. Amazing, isn’t it!?
