#AsSheIs This is the skin I wake up in every day. I love playing with makeup and being glam, but I've also grown to love the skin I wake up in acne scars, moles and all. I too have days where I dont feel confident, or my insecurities are louder...but that's okay. Loving yourself as you are is a journey, but it's a journey worth taking. Tagging my loves @binibiningnicolecordoves @sandralemonon to take part in the #AsSheIs challenge 🧡 #MissUniverse @missuniverse
When I was 13, my mum told me "Honey, I dreamt of you winning @missuniverse in a red dress." At that time I thought nothing of it, and today my mother's dream came true. ✨ Where do I even begin? Lord God, I lift everything up to you - to glorify and honour you. 🙏 Philippines 🇵🇭 what an amazing honor it has been to carry your name across my chest and to embody you in all aspects. I may now carry the sash of Miss Universe, but I'll forever be your Miss Philippines. ❤️💙💛 To my team @carlosbuendiajr @bragaisjojo @mitagray @binibiningnicolecordoves @jololuarca @justine.aliman19 @ton_lao @vheecostyle @francischee_ @styledbypatrickhenry @visionerickson @ardelpresentacion @mackycombe @harleybarleyyy @jellyeugenio @hairbybrentsales @memayfrancisco @mimsqiu @momoisupe @tesserajewelry @maktumang @jearsond @theaiveeclinic @empiredentallounge @jed_jimenez I wouldn't have been able to do any of this with all your time, effort and love 💛 #MissUniverse @missuniverse
In the video she posted on Wednesday, July 22, Catriona wrote: “Wanted to create something fun to celebrate being here with 10 Million of you all!”
“Thanks for always supporting me and giving me the opportunity to share my life with you! I lava you all!” she added.
The release of the video comes amid the controversies involving the beauty queen, following the viral posts of her former boyfriend Clint Bondad, as well as a circulating “fake” and “digitally altered” photo depicting her topless.
Despite the intrigues hounding her, 26-year-old Catriona remains positive, thanks to the continued love and support of her loyal fans, to which she wrote: “Thanks for giving me 10 million reasons to smile.”
