BLOGGERS UNITED IS BACK! AND I'M IN IT!

Image
Yes, you read that right. I'm part of Bloggers United 2!
Manila's finest fashion bloggers will leave their laptops at home (I'm not!) once again to attend Bloggers United Bazaar (Part 2) on December 3, 2011 at Treston International College, Taguig.

It is the second installment of the first-ever Bloggers United: An Interactive Shopping Affair which was held last May. Due to insistent demand from readers and bloggers alike, Bloggers United team in partnership with the country's largest online shopping website, Multiply Philippines have gathered Manila's fashion bloggers to sell their pre-loved but very stylish pieces!

This event is the perfect opportunity for both bloggers and their adoring readers to mingle and personally interact with each other. Fun contests and exciting giveaways from sponsors and entertaining performances from bloggers (Walkie Talkies, Reese & Vica) themselves will definitely keep this event from being a dull one.

Some of the notable bloggers…

BLOGGERS UNITED FLASHBACK

Image
Three more days to go before Bloggers United 2! So why am I blogging about this and why do I care? I'll let you in on a little secret… I'm participating!!! Yeah! The team behind Bloggers United took notice of me and my humble blog and being this newbie in the blogging industry, I felt humbled and honored to be with Manila's Top Style bloggers this coming Saturday. But before I go into full hyper mode in promoting the event, allow me to share my first Bloggers United experience.

The first Bloggers United Bazaar was held at Malayan Plaza Hotel in Ortigas last May. Back then, I was not yet into blogging BUT I was seriously contemplating on starting my own blog. A part of me was saying "go ahead, you can do it!" and a (bigger) part of me was screaming "no way, jose!" Blogging means serious business! You have to update, update, and update even more! And that's  quite a load given that (during that time) I already got my hands full with the business and …

INSTAXED! #1 - BESTIE KONISIS

Image
Bestie, aside from being my copywriter / PR associate, is also my guinea pig when it comes to new stuff that I want to try especially when I'm playing with my cameras. She's the style chameleon of The Capricious Club blog and she never fails to live up to her blog's core much to the delight of her readers and followers. For Bestie, her styles are that of a chameleon's - scaly, rough and reptile-like. JOKE! Kidding aside,  Bestie's style is indeed that of a chameleon's. Ever changing, ever colorful, and ever interesting. For some reason, which I can't define, reading her blog and scanning through her photos takes me back to the time where hairsprays and big shoulder pads were the "in" thing. Not that I'm saying that she's a big fan of both but there's this quality (in her photos and her looks) that's nostalgic. Hmm… must be the vintage finds…

BRUISED, BLACK & BLUE

I was invited to the movie screening of Breaking Dawn last November 19 at the Eastwood Mall by the good peeps of Prestige Brands Philippines. What I wore was dictated by the fact that I'm gonna watch a "vampire" movie. That's why I came up with this,





This will also be my debut look on LOOKBOOK…




What's up with the post title? Well, it goes beyond the colors of my look. After watching the movie, especially that 30 minute honeymoon scene (where Bella got her bruises from you-know-what), I felt like my insides where sore from the beating that I got due to the revolt of my organs. Don't get me wrong Twilight Fans, I appreciate the book but the movie? Aww… it sucks (pun intended) big time! The movie soundtrack is waaaayyy better! But still, thank you Marla and Prestige Brands Philippines for the invite. You made watching Breaking Dawn tolerable.

EVERYTHING IS BLACK AND WHITE WHEN YOU'RE FEELING BLUE

Image
Quite emotional right?

As you (probably) all know, I'm a fan of Topman. I even follow them on Facebook to get promo and sale updates! Imagine the sweat my palms induce everytime I see a SALE status on their Facebook page! Fortunately, Trinoma is like a minute away from my office. So one day, they had a buy the 2nd item at 50% off promo and of course, being the sucker for everything Topman  that I am, bit the bait. So here's what I got…
Now you know why my post is titled that way. It should have been "Everything is black and white when Topman's on sale" but where's the blue part right?
The Breakdown: Topman braces Php795 Topman white polo shirt Php1,445 Topman blue polo shirt Php647.50 (disc.) Total: Php2,887.50

SPEND: GUESS SEDUCTIVE I'M YOURS

Image
There are two types of scents in the world (according to me). One that you give as a gift and one that you keep for yourself. For my holiday list of Spend or Splurge, let me present you GUESS Seductive I'm Yours… and why you should "Spend" and keep this for yourself.

Irresistibly flirty and intense, GUESS Seductive I'm Yours is an ultra-sexy fragrance for the mischievous woman who loves to fully explore her feminine prowess. Equally youthful and sophisticated, she weaves a web of glamour and intrigue for the objects of her desire. No men can resist her - nor do they want to. She leaves them breathless every time…

THE SCENT
Created by IFF perfumer Pierre Negrin, GUESS Seductive I'm Yours is a lush, sexy oriental, tantalizing with its delicious contrast of delicate florals and luxurious musks and woods. The fragrance rouses the senses with dewy Peony, mouthwatering Passion Fruit and sparkling kisses from the petals of the Tiare Tahiti flower. The enchanting Tiare, re…

Catching streetlights needs right timing and a quick hand… and it can be quite tricky! But once caught, results vary from awesome to AWZUM!!!

LOOK LIKE A CEO... NOT! #8 - TOP-TO-TOE TOPMAN

Image
These shots that you are about to see were taken at the basement parking of Robinsons Galleria right after the birthday celebration of Abiel, my nephew. I even have a celebrity making an appearance photo bombing one of my shots! Hah!


Excited to see who my famous (so far) photo bomber was?
Alright, this is not a 100% Top-To-Toe Topman (Memo button down = outfit bomber) but you get the idea. Happy weekend everyone!
