HealthJunkie.ph was a media partner at the recently held Go Girl Expo. As part of this amazing group, I got some VIP passes to the event and even spent some time manning the Health Junkie booth with the amazing Ms. Tonette. We were fortunate to be near the stage. We got to listen to inspiring talks from wonderful guest speakers, while shoppers took selfie at our booth to join the raffle sponsored by Health Junkie and The Playground. The winner got an #LJFitChallenge kit worth P4000 which fits the Go Girl Expo's aim of promoting and empowering healthy and active Filipinas.

Of course, I made sure to visit all the exhibitors too. There were so much to see, try, and buy. It's inspiring to meet and talk to woman entrepreneurs. There were so much products made by women, to empower women.
To share the experience, I picked 15 favorite things from Go Girl Expo. It was hard to choose because each booth had something great to offer. I decided to share my 15 favorite things based on what I purchased or want to purchase because I believe in the product. Here's the list in no particular order:
I first tried their food when I attended a Zumba event and I loved them already. They offer healthy, delicious meal that's still affordable. Plus points is that the meal won't make you think "healthy" (read: bland and taste really bad) which can turn off most.
Customized Greeting Cards
I wasn't able to note all the exhibitors' name. I was busy admiring their works of art (and shopping) so if this is yours, please say hi so I can give you a much deserved credit. Eitherway, I really loved these twisted metal wires. It adds fun to your old school cards, giving it new life.
POP. JUNK. LOVE.
I've been stalking these amazing ladies in IG for a while now and I'm just awed with their talent. I wanted to get a super hero flushie to give as a gift but they didn't have it available on-hand at the Go Girl Expo. I settled for this Nyan Cat install, just because it reminds me of 9Gag (raise your hand if you de-stress with this site too). PopJunkLove items are really well made so it's more than just for display but it's something that my kid can really play with. Plus points for that.

TAKE ROOM GRANOLA
This healthy treat of Burnt Honey with Cranberries had me eating guilt-free snacks.
Notice the caption on that card? Yup, that yummy looking cupcake is an artisanal soap. They even smell as sweet as they look.
Y. E. T. COSMETICS
I rarely use makeup but this line had me wanting to hoard the full line, starting with their cleanser and primer. The Peeling Eraser Cleaner is an aloe-based gel cleaner that removes dead skin without the use of rough beads that can actually damaged the skin more. The Primer on the other hand allows you to look poreless. Something I badly want.
They offer reversible wears, from pants, to skirts, to blouses. Two styles in one? Perfect for a mom who rarely buys anything for herself.
I had a first hand experience with this talented group during the Leuchtturm1917event. I still can't get over all the artistic and creative vibe flowing from their small area in the Go Girl Expo.
I wish I could find their business card. I want to get a customized screenprint cloth from this exhibitor. The prints are well done and detailed at great prices too. I know they also offer workshops so it's really worth checking out.
Comics on the next level! Our very own manga style publications written and illustrated by Filipinos. I met two of them, both ladies full of talent.
Bottle Cap Art
Recycling is one thing. Making them into cute, useful stuff and turning them into a business is only an amazing, empowered woman can do.
The Ta-Da! pouch was my favorite. That's one of Mila's favorite expressions. They have lovely prints and bags ranging from this small pouch to the big ones you can use as your shopping bag.
These are just three of my favorites but have have tons to choose from! The cards are at least 175gsm and the prints have vibrant colors. This booth also sells cute ribbon clips that I simply had to get for Mila.
THE GREEN HOUSE PROJECT
There were at least 3 booths selling succulent plants, plotted on really charming pots. I'm biased towards The Green House Project because (1) they are right across are booth, and (2) this pretty girl stayed there for a while and I just love her whole ensemble. So chic, I got a lady-crush! All I can say is you go girl!
