the body shop holiday gift sets 2015

Thursday, November 26, 2015

Holidays,  Christmas Shopping.

Have you started buying gifts yet? I haven't. Nakakatamad. Hahaha :P I'm not mean or ungrateful, I just find the task daunting. Traffic, so many people on my list, so many decisions to make. Where do I even begin?!

Can relate?

If you aren't a "skilled" gift-giver like me, there's always The Body Shop! :P And this year, they're giving us more reason to relax and let them do all the legwork for us (while making sure our loved ones are still happy come Christmas morning).

Bloggers United 10 x World Bazaar Festival 2015 x SMART Prepaid: A Holiday Dream Come True

One can only imagine the possibilities when the country’s top fashion bloggers come together under one roof, let alone with the country’s longest running annual charity bazaar and the #1 telecommunications company in the country. What is certain though is that the combo will make for the hottest holiday event of the season.

WBF x BU10
#bu1

Founded in 2011, Bloggers United is a series of bloggers’ bazaar held in the metro to serve as a platform where bloggers can network and interact among themselves to nurture the online Filipino community through a celebration of beauty, fashion, and style. As such, a collaboration with WBF entails a brighter opportunity for Bloggers United to reach out to the blogging community for a more meaningful and exciting experience this holiday season.

Among the attendees of this year’s Bloggers United are top bloggers as well as style and fashion personalities such as Sarah Tirona (me, haha!), Vern & Verniece Enciso, Jasmine Curtis-Smith, David Guison, Laureen Uy, Camille Co, Kryz Uy, Lissa Kahayon, Dani Barretto, Patricia Prieto, Mikyle Quizon and Divine Lee - promising a one-of-a-kind shopping experience presented by SMART Prepaid. In keeping with the spirit of the yuletide season, the event is likewise a part of a wider effort to promote charity as part of the proceeds of WBF 2015 will be for the benefit of the ABS CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation. 
When asked about the inspiration behind the partnership, JR Ang, marketing director of leading events organizer Worldbex Services International enthuses, “The last time that we partnered with them was last 2013 and the feedback on the event was immensely good. This is why we invited Bloggers United back for the 15th installment of the World Bazaar Festival.”

In addition, Ang expresses, “We hope for the event to give the bloggers a stage for them to get up close and personal with their readers and in turn provide everyone with a fun filled shopping trip no one will forget.”

Don’t miss out on the most stylish event of the holiday season!

The 15th World Bazaar Festival will run from December 4 until December 21, 2015 from 10am to 12mn (Fri-Sun) and 12nn to 10pm (Mon-Thurs) at the World Trade Center Metro Manila. Tickets are priced at P80.

Monday, November 23, 2015

No one in their right mind will ever turn down an invitation for a night that promises excellent wining and dining at Manila Hotel's Champagne Room, right?

So despite my lola -self usually deciding to turn down an evening invitation almost immediately, I made an exception for this.

And I'm glad I did.

Want in on a fashion blogger secret?

Before blogging became "a thing", we had no sponsors to rely on for our ootd's. You can imagine how expensive it could get..shopping for clothes, shoes and accessories every season just to be able to demonstrate to our readers the different possibilities of how to style these new designs.

Guess where most of us shopped 90% of the time? I'm not kidding, you can backread our blogs to 5 years ago and you'll all see us rocking something from SM Parisian.

memo fashion: in these pants...

Monday, November 9, 2015

In these pants, I attended the Ayala Malls Christmas event held in Fairmont Hotel last week.

You know how like when your schedule is so crazy and erratic, the last thing you want to have to worry about as well is your outfit?

Yup, that's what it's been like for me lately jetting in and out of Manila, practically living out of a suitcase while at the same time trying to keep up with my deadlines, family and new business ventures.

There's never enough time in a day already so I don't really have the extra minutes to sit down and plan my outfits carefully.

Sunday, November 8, 2015

You know how sometimes you find something really cute but end up not buying it cause you can't imagine how to wear it?

It's happened to me more than once.

And I usually regret it.

Like sometimes I see a nice pair of shoes but can't wrap my mind around how to style it so I skip it. And then fast forward a month, I see one of my favorite fashion bloggers rocking it flawlessly. I fly back to the store only to find out that it's already sold out. How disappointing and frustrating.

That's why I think the recent People X Herschel collab was genius.

Have a Slice Day with Caltex (win a barkada road trip!)

Tuesday, November 3, 2015

I've been writing about my road trip across Malaysia these past couple of weeks and have been terribly missing the freedom of the open highways as I relive those moments in my blog posts. Truly nothing beats the type of camaraderie shared between friends when faced with far-off destinations. The excitement is unlike any other and I can't wait to hit the road again.

Wanna go on an adventure with your friends as well? Here's your chance!

Drive to Caltex and enjoy an unbeatable barkada deal.

AMAZING RACE MALAYSIA???

After 2 days of briefing and restless anticipation, it was finally time to get behind the wheel!

Tell you the truth, I was more anxious than excited in the beginning. It was my first time to drive right hand drive and I was worried about falling into a gutter or worse, bumping into another car. That would be really embarrassing and I could already imagine the "lady driver puns" that the men in my group might whisper amongst themselves.

That's probably where my pride kicked in and told me that yes, I had a handle on things and could totally do this.

Never mind that it was also going to be a really long drive on a foreign highway at top speeds.

(Insert profanity here)

As I slid behind the wheel (on the wrong side of the car :P), I secretly prayed for a miracle...like maybe for some absurd reason, my partner suddenly remembers that he does drive and has a drivers license after all. That maybe he just momentarily forgot after banging his head on a wall or something, but no.

No, no, no, nothing of that sort happened, sooo, I guess I had no choice. #FML. :P

Hello, November! It’s official, we’ve hit the holiday season. Along with that are a slew of parties that we must attend for one reason or another.

It could be for work, catching up with old friends or maybe getting to know the family of your significant other?

Whatever the reason, one thing remains certain. We will all be shopping for dresses to wear to all these semi-formal/formal occasions.

With thousands of options available nowadays, the process can get quite confusing and time-consuming.
