The Bloggers United Bazaar gets Krissyfied!

30 May 2011

THE BLOGGERS UNITED BAZAAR HELD LAST FRIDAY WAS A ROARING SUCCESS!!

Thanks to digital word-of-mouth through blogs and social networking sites, we enjoyed a HUGE turn-out (even with the bleak weather). The 32nd and 33rd floors of Malayan Lounge were filled with chic and fashionable people gabbing with their friends, shopping the closets of their favorite fashion bloggers, and snapping away! It was so much fun seeing everyone having fun ♥


I shared a booth with my blog-sister Ava. Organizers Ana, Melai and Aisa weren't able to sell anymore because they were too busy running around. I told Ana to display her stuff on the booth though so Anagon Collection was still well-represented :) I also asked my fab friend and classmate from college Paula to come and sell her Maria Paulita handmade accessories :)


We were booth-neighbors with these gorgeous ladies:

Pretty Aie sold accessories and accessory-holders and boxes.
Rej, me, Aie, Earth and Bestie
Every hour Melai goes to the stage to say a few words about the sponsors, present AVPs, talk to guests and participating bloggers, announce winners of the raffle draw, and host games. I also won a game by Tomato :D The sponsors have been sooo generous in giving out freebies to everyone so thank you so much! I even got to take home a HUGE gift package from Unilever that contains prolly more than P1,000 worth of CloseUp, Vaseline and Clear products when I was interviewed for a TV spot that may be shown in etc ♥

I wasn't able to go around that much and take lots of photos, mainly because I admittedly have very low EQ and seeing pretty clothes and shoes would do bad, bad, bad damage to my savings account x_x It was great to see top fashion bloggers interacting with their readers. I'm sure this event will be forever remembered by a lot of people, especially since it is the first of its kind to happen here in Manila. Just Google Bloggers United and see posts from people who came and participated! (Check out Dylan's and Pau's ♥)

Some snaps:

Yay for happy customers!
Paula's officemates Monj and Joyce also came!

Also, can I just say how thankful I am that I have awesome friends? Big thanks to Dewi and Ed for dropping by and supporting my little hobby. I really appreciate it ♥ Fun fact: do you know Dewi lent me her camera just so I can have something to use for events after my camera got stolen? All together now, awwww ♥

Dewi getting her 'modelesque' groove on ;D
Happy faces!
Ed, Dewi, me, Paula and Paula's officemate Martin
After packing up at around 9, we headed to the adjacent Pancake House for a late dinner.

Big thanks also to Paula's boyfriend Marky for waiting for us and for buying us lunch! :)

After dinner Marky was supposed to drop Ed, Dewi and me at Robinsons Galleria so we can get a cab home but he headed straight to Off the Grill in Timog Avenue for a couple of celebratory drinks and more bonding :)

My mojito was delicioso :)
I love you guys! Thank you so much! ♥
I reached my apartment at around 2:30AM lugging four big, heavy bags. Aside from the swag bags participating bloggers were given (I won't have to go toiletries-shopping for at least two months, I think ;p), I was able to snag these two items:

Janylin leopard-print stiletto booties I got from Reg's booth.
Would you believe she sold it to me for only P600??! :D
Pretty turquoise top I got from Rosanna's booth
This is brand new and I got it for P300 :)
I was eyeing a lot of other dresses but I succeeded in stopping myself from buying them. Yay for me! :D

Paula is so sweet. She handed a package to me after we have settled in our booth, and it contained these: a gothic necklace, two pairs of earrings, a wired corsage, a Krissy bookmark and three rings ♥
Congratulations to the Bloggers United trio Aisa, Melai and Ana! Thank you for coming up with this project, and I am superrr excited for the next one!!
