Continuing with our Valerie Weigmann watch, the picture above is another one from her pictorial wearing the Vania Romoff Collection.
The black-and-white ensemble is a smart head-turner of an outfit for sure. It may not be the usual attire being worn by beauty contestants, but it will surely make the wearer stand out. A veritable OOTD (Outfit of the Day) if ever.
Don’t you agree, dear readers?
Anyways, today is a non-working holiday (Eid’l Fitr) so I’m taking things easy just a bit. I have been stressing myself out the past few weeks and a full day in bed is just what the doctor ordered. ;-)

Miss World 2013 Megan Young on the pages of Women's Health Magazine
The TV spots are running in full over at GMA-7 on a regular basis. In fact, the above video can be seen at least once in every primetime program of the network, plus a healthy frequency during the highly-rated afternoon soaps.
This only means that Miss World Philippines 2014 will go on full swing mode next month. The exact finals date has not yet been finalized, but it will definitely air either last week of August or very early September.
And Miss World 2013 Megan Young is visibly excited to find out who will vie for the national crown she has beautifully held for one year.
Your blogger will definitely cover the whole nine yards. Stay stuck for all the highlights, sidelights and spotlights of the competition. ;-)
Valerie Weigmann watch.
Between now and the important initial screening day (possibly at MOA) scheduled first week of August, we will regularly feature our very winsome beauty for Miss World Philippines 2014.
And nothing’s gonna stop her now. ;-)
Is Nancy Leonard priming herself up for a new pageant?
After serving her term as Miss Philippines Air 2013 (she was originally named Miss Philippines Water 2013 but got promoted in position after Kimverlyn Suiza resigned to join Bb. Pilipinas 2014
), Zamboanga beauty Nancy Leonard is becoming more and more visible nowadays. And it’s looking like she is being prepped for another beauty pageant happening soon. Could it be for Miss World Philippines 2014 or Miss Global Philippines?
Regardless of where Rodgil Flores enters Nancy anew, then she will be more than ready to face the challenge. She has more confidence now and is definitely more capable of placing in another competition.
Let’s see which direction the wind will blow for this stunner. ;-)
Janicel Lubina for Almodal Jewelry
Where will she laugh last?
After being named as 1st Princess to Megan Young in last year’s Miss World Philippines, just what are the chances of Janicel Lubina doing a Pia Wurtzbach, resigning from her previous rank and re-joining the 2014 search? Not at all remote considering that she could be advised by her handlers to try out different options instead of patiently waiting for Bb. Pilipinas 2015 to come around.
But if you ask me, I would still prefer for her to keep an eye on the next nationals because the competition for Megan’s successor is laden with strong mixed-race joiners who have already been hyped to high heavens as early as two months back. On the other hand, Janicel’s type can easily stand out because of the same reason.
Whatever Miss Lubina ends up taking on next, I sincerely wish her all the best. :-)

So that you will have a clearer idea of who Miss Philippines Quest USA 2014 Alexa Kirby really is, here is a brief backgrounder on the lovely 18 year-old as detailed on the contest’s Facebook Page
“A recent graduate from Downington West High School, Alexa is from Romansville, PA. She is currently working as a Summer Camp Counselor at ACAC. She is not new to pageants having joined Miss Teen Pennsylvania USA and Miss Teen Philippines. She enjoys dancing, walking through the woods, staying outdoor and modeling.
Alexa is a dance scholar from Touch of Class Dance Studio in 2011 and an awardee for her commitment in community services from Kohls Kids Who Cares Program in 2008 and 2013. Her life ambition is to always be happy without having to worry about her future. To live in the present is what matters to her.
“Everyone is beautiful on the outside, but not everyone is beautiful in the inside.Being beautiful is to be yourself and show people you care is important. Giving a compliment to someone is beautiful because you are able to feel better and make someone else smile.”

So as you can see, Alexa already has a natural talent to share in the talent competition of Miss World Philippines 2014. Being a dance scholar and all, she can definitely hit the music with her easy groove or play traditional with one of the more popular Philippine folk dances. But more than this, her stints as Summer Camp Counselor and involvement in Community Services can already be a good starting point for her beautiful purpose in life. These items say a whole lot about her wholesome personality.
Clearly, there are a number of good reasons for Alexa to look forward to Miss World Philippines 2014 and possibly create an impact so strong for the other heavy favorites to sit up and take notice. ;-)
Valerie Weigmann has started her intensive training for Miss World Philippines 2014.

While she may have already commenced plotting her gameplan even way before everyone else, Valerie Weigmann officially started her intensive training for Miss World Philippines 2014 yesterday with all the Aces & Queens key individuals around.
So far, I have not heard of any other potential entry the beauty camp is planning to field in the competition. And by the looks of it, she is going to approach the whole thing the way MWP2013 and MW2013 Megan Young navigated hers.
Just look straight ahead, Valerie!
Never lose focus and keep your eyes on the prize, just like the Germans who earlier won the FIFA World Cup 2014. :-D

And Miss Philippines Quest USA 2014 has been crowned. 18 year-old Alexa Kirby
will now prepare for the bigger challenge of being the representative of the US East Coast Fil-Am Community in the upcoming Miss World Philippines 2014 to be held in Manila next month.

Included in her court are 1st Princess Misook Mendonca, 2nd Princess Isabella Estella, 3rd Princess Jenica Balmes and 4th Princess Erin Manansala. Miss World Philippines Head Cory Quirino was around to help award the winners, as well as sitting as one of the judges in the competition.
Other Special Award winners are Misook Mendonca who nailed Best in Swimsuit and Miss Talent and Erin Manansala who was given the People’s Choice Award.
Congratulations, Alexa! :-D
See you in Manila, Alexa!
Lorraine after her KF Make-up Session
There is a clear reason why Lorraine Kendrickson is leading the charge of Kagandahang Flores for Miss World Philippines 2014. The girl is simply gorgeous, especially after her test make-up session with the camp showed the end results (photo above) to everyone’s satisfaction.
Are things looking up for this young lass from Dumaguete? I am certainly on the affirmative in this regard. :-)
Tennis player Anja-Vanessa Peter: setting her sights on Miss World Philippines 2014?
Anja was a WTA-ranked tennis player.
Yesterday, we featured a female equestrian
joining Miss Grand Philippines 2014. Today, we have a tennis player who might just take the pageant plunge and screen for Miss World Philippines 2014, unless the age of 25 will pose a problem and push her to vie for Miss Global Philippines 2014
5’7″ Anja-Vanessa Peter – a half-Filipino half-German athlete – was born in Riyadh, KSA but raised in the Philippines. Having started playing tennis at the age of 6, she literally grew up with a racket on her right hand. She has already seen action for the country in various ITF-sanctioned tournaments, played in the Fed Cup and world-ranked by WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) as of 2007.
At the moment, she has been seen in constant gym training with the other KF beauties, and is more than ready to swap her tennis shoes for platform heels.

Will she be in tiptop shape for the beauty pageant/s the camp is planning to sign her up for? Regardless, I still bet she is in good physical form.
Good luck, Anja! :-)
