TOMS Kids Style Your Sole Event

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Last week, my daughter and I headed off to Krispy Kreme at Bonifacio High Street for some mother-daughter bonding care of TOMS.

Thanks to Jules and TOMS, my daughter was one of the few lucky kids chosen to "Style Their Soul":
As soon as we entered, Nikola was fitted with her perfect size of TOMS:
So cute!
We headed off to one of the craft tables to gather supplies so Nikola could start personalizing her new pair of TOMS!
While busy at work, the friendly staff at Krispy Kreme served as a box of 6 original glazed donuts, our family's favorite flavor :)
Nikola busy at work:
while pretending to be a "baby blogger" with her iTouch! :P
As soon as she was satisfied with the placement of her embellishments, we dropped her shoes off again at the craft table so they could permanently attach them with hot glue:
some of the other kids at the craft table:


Happy with her new sparkly shoes!


Nikola doing "the cross-over!" LOL!

The TOMS Style Your Soul event was a fun-filled afternoon for me and Nikola. <3

Great news peeps, if you'd like to personalize your own pair of TOMS too, check out this POST. TOMS has a lot of activities planned this season for all of their loyal customers :)

Free Passes to Bloggers United 2!!!

Wednesday, November 23, 2011


Manila’s finest fashion bloggers will leave their laptops at home once again to attend BLOGGERS UNITED BAZAAR (Part 2) on December 3, 2011 at Treston International College, Taguig, this coming holiday season.

It is the second installment of the first-ever Bloggers United: An Interactive Shopping Affair (link your past entry if you like), which was held last May. Due to insistent demand from readers and bloggers alike, Bloggers United (http://www.facebook.com/bloggersunitedph) team in partnership with the country’s largest online shopping website, Multiply Philippines (http://multiply.com/) have gathered Manila’s fashion bloggers to sell their pre-loved but very stylish closet 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 attending the event include Divine Lee, Laureen Uy, Kookie Buhain, Lissa Kahayaon, David Guison, Karl Leuterio, Patricia Prieto and Preview Magazine’s own Daryl and Andre Chang.

But because Bloggers United wishes to go beyond the geographic limitations of the archipelago and extend its reach beyond Metro Manila and so for this event, they are flying in some of Cebu’s very own fashion bloggers which include Kryz Uy, Eden Villarba, designer Yves Camingue, Gillian Uang and Mildred Zapanta and a few more.

Part of the proceeds from this event will go to the GMA Kapuso Foundation (http://www.kapusofoundation.com/) for its school building project, a small but significant step to improve the Filipino youth’s access to education.

The organizers behind BLOGGERS UNITED BAZAAR (PART 2) are Ana Gonzales (http://anagonzales.com), Melai Entuna (http://styleandsoul.blogspot.com) and Aisa Ipac (http://ipaxme.blogspot.com), a team of blogger friends encouraging camaraderie and sense of “community” among Manila’s (and eventually, the country’s) fashion blogging community through events and productions like this.

This is a one-day-only event that you shouldn’t really miss! It will be in a bigger venue with twice more the number of participating bloggers to meet! This is the perfect shopping day this Christmas because the most affordable and most fashionable clothes, accessories and footwear will be up for grabs. See you!

An Accessorize Love Affair

Monday, November 21, 2011

I have long been an Accessorize fan and my blog is proof of that. I have numerous outfit posts featuring several of their bags....

Here are some photos I grabbed from my archive:
The bags at Accessorize are stand out, sure to be noticed...and that's what every blogger wants right? To stand out and be noticed! ;)

Accessorize bags have the "designer look" but without the hefty price tag. They're also fair trade which is very important to me.






So that was then...and this is now...
still a big fan! In fact, I think I've even grown fonder of them with all the beautiful sequined clutches this season!
outfit: studded leather jacket from HK, shirt from topshop, DIY skirt, JC Lita's and
Union Jack clutch from Accessorize!
Let's keep this short and sweet and let the photos speak for itself. Feel the love!!!


ps. Don't forget to visit an Accessorize branch nearest you! Their bags are still on sale at 50% off!!!

Chickflick Private Sale

This afternoon, I made it a point to make time and drop by the State Condo along Ortigas for Chickflick's private sale. It was every fashionista/recessionista's dream!

I seriously got a headache trying to decide which pairs to take home with me! If only I had all the money in the world!

Pax and I had a hoot trying on all the different new styles for this season, . All new arrivals were at 20% off giving an average shoe price of just P1300 while old styles were at 30% off!!! Flats were being sold for only P400 a pair!

Here are some pics from this afternoon:

Before I stop chatting away, just want to remind you all about my ongoing birthday giveaway series. Just click on the appropriate links on my right rail. Good luck and enjoy the pics! :)

Ps. Can you guess which pairs found a new home in my cabinet? ;)
