Bargain Hunt Bazaar finds
The Bargain Hunt Bazaar is happening from july 27-29, yes today is the last day!!!It’s located at the New Megatent in C5 Libis. If you have time try to drop by! What i love about this bazaar is it was spacious just like in the World trade center. I wasn’t able to take photos of the area so i’ll just share a few of the things i got.
Bedazzled Pinwheel Bloggers party :)
It was my first time to attend a Blogger’s event, and the first one happened to be held by Bedazzle Accessories owned by accessories designer Catherine Limson.
It was really nice to meet a lot of nice people and get to socialize again and meet potential new close friends.
The PINWHEEL EVENT started at around 3PM at Cerealicious University Mall. I was supposed to go with Andie and Denise but ended up being late due to traffic. Anyway, back to the details there were some exciting activities in store for us! See photos!
All the bloggers after orientation and the getting to know part. Everyone had to introduce themselves! hihi felt like first day of school, so for us who already graduated it felt sort of nostalgic.
DIY station we get to choose two colors to be made with the gold chain! I picked Aqua blue and Salmon pink. (See results later)
For station 2! we get to choose charms and a braided string color! I picked Navy Blue and the charms above! look how messy my paper was, it’s so hard to choose! picky me…
3rd station the beady bracelet making station! :D i’d just like to call it that. It was really fun combining colors just how i like it.
Here are my new found friends with our completed creations too far to see though. Left to Right - there’s Cath owner of Bedazzle Accessories, Regine of theFashionVoyager , ME, Andie of the Pin-up Girl Store, Denise of simonesfashioncloset
We all proceeded to the Bedazzle Retail shop and made our own little purchases. Lovely Accessories!

forever21 accessories and iphone cases
I haven’t been able to blog much lately due to a very busy month. Anyway, I’d just like to take this time on my sunday rest day to blog about my recent finds which some of you might find exciting and lovely aswell.This post is for items i got from December to February worth mentioning :)
So after so many iphone case obsession posts that flooded your dashboards, this is what i finally got and am happy with! It’s not decouart cases from etsy… I just got it from greenhills. Oh the pastel-ly goodness of pink and mint green/blue
I did all i can to find something unique and something i won’t see in any other stall there and this is what i got! Selling Price 430php haggled at 350php
so the cute thing about this case is it’s made up of three parts and i just love how i don’t have to force my iphone into fitting a plastic-scratching iphone case. This one is a bit rubber coated whichever term they use for it. They down side is it gets dirty.. and washing it just makes it a bit worse. But i have enjoyed my almost 1 month use for this baby.
Forever21 and Nikita Accessories
Nikita Accessories <3
I’ve been waiting for a while to blog about Nikita’s Accessories. Most or all of the accessories are made with crochet combined with beads, chains and other sorts of media. I must say the color combinations are so lovely, and if you’re the type who loves colorful and classy accessories you gotta check the site.
Here are some of my favorites, although most of them are sold out :(
Bow necklaces sold at 165php each
This lovely lovely!!! cuff sold at 420php
Audrey Bow Bracelets with Gold Chains sold at 205php Planning to get the White one together with the next item:
2 tiers of celeste crocheted scallops on gold-tone necklace chain sold at 350php (but i want the cream/white one too)
Another lovely piece, a bag charm but i am not sure how much :P
So here’s what i got for myself on my 1st purchase and also photos of my 1st meeting with the maker of these lovely Accessories..
Interpretation of a Scarf
The season of scarves have passed, and i am still reminded of that time when almost everyone has a long scarf hanging around their necks where people wore jeans, plain shirts and blouses.
It was a “casual-walking around-feeling cool and artsy” look. Well, at least that was my impression. It’s not bad, it’s just that I haven’t really appreciated them until the time that they became a bit passe.
Anyway, it’s getting colder as it gets near December so I thought that maybe getting that a bit expensive scarf from Accessorize wouldn’t be so bad! Since i’d be able to use them in numerous ways:
THE USUAL WRAP-AROUND-THE-NECK I PICTURE IN MY MIND WHEN I HEAR SCARF
this look isn’t exactly popular here in the Phil., especially with our most of the time humid weather. I got to pull this off probably twice when wearing a sleeveless top and short shorts to balance the look and not looking overdone and it was a thinner scarf too compared to this one below:
THE CASUAL SWING/DRAPE
Everybody can do this here. Especially if you feel lazy dressing up but still don’t want to look too plain- just put on a plain top or shirt to be paired with your fave jeans, shorts or skirt, putting a scarf that matches the color will make it look more special than not.
Using a scarf as a headpiece is one of my favorites. It’s just fabulous and so boho, i love that style tying the scarf/cloth/band on your hair like so on the right photo:
There’s just something i particularly love about this bead work “masterpiece” . I can’t imagine how i could do it, but it’s really lovely, but it only works for me because of the color combination. <3

This is my retail therapy.
MY LOVE FOR ACCESSORIZE!
Okay so i’m officially addicted to the brand - well more like the items. I’ve never been this ecstatic about something quite pricey- but it’s worth it. So i’d just like to share how i feel about these stuff i got and hopefully find others who share this addiction! Feel free to leave a comment!
The first time i entered Accessorize was in Robinson’s Galleria (but the photo above is in Shangrila Mall Edsa haha)and it felt like paradise literally! i can stay there for the longest time just looking and trying on the accessories and whatever stuff they have. It gives me that fuzzy feeling just like that effect in the photo above. haha (O.A)
I suppose the key here is color, they’ve captured my taste. Pinks and blues and cyan, beads combined so tastefully, mixed media of sorts.. it’s just really amazing! i just love how unique the items are and how sure i am i might not be able to see them just anywhere.
I somehow hate that generic feel in some accessories that i can see almost everywhere - In tiangges or in shops that just put a brand on them but you very well know it’s not made by them genuinely?
1st purchase- I got the necklace - enamel love bought at 400php
It was supposed to be given by my boyfriend-he promised but i couldn’t wait so i bought it myself and he just paid me back! haha
2nd purchase - fancy ballpen bought at 299php
this was supposed to be a gift for someone, but me and my bf realized it wouldn’t suit her at all! haha SO IT’S MINE! ALL MINE! buwahaha
3rd purchase - the beady cuff bracelet i so love - bought at 400php
we walked right in front of the store at galleria….. 70% off! Imma faint! hurried and checked out all the items and ended up getting this bracelet. So this is where it starts, i was eying on a bag when girl came in took it and went straight to the counter. GREAT! IT WAS THE LAST PIECE! :(
A bit of dragging story you can read or not, up to you :P
So i took the other bags that seemed attractive too, went back and forth the mirror asking my boyfriend if i should get it, he said yes and we can pay in credit card. But i tried to keep control and put the bag down and walk away.. (just like in that Shopaholic movie advice).
After that i kept asking and wanting to go back but when we did the bag was gone. so the next day i insisted to go to Trinoma the other branch i know, but we did not go there instead we went to ALI MALL because a friend said there was a branch there, so when we got there Accessorize already moved out!
The whole afternoon i felt hopeless, we had our lunch and walked around then my boyfriend took out his samsung tablet and handed it to me, showing the Accessorize Philippines fan page.I said “Ano yan pampalubag loob?” He said “Tignan mo yung branches!” I felt enlightened! The closest that wasn’t Galleria was in Shangrila Mall!
We rushed there and tried to find the shop, and thank god every item i wanted in the Galleria Branch was complete plus more!
4th purchase: the lovely bag bought at 1400php
Im so in love with this because of the fine beadwork and color combination! And it’s big enough to flatter my body type and height.
5th purchase: dangling earrings bought at 345php
again! the color combination is a killer! pastels! just so meee
Till the sale hasn’t end i might get more! Till my next purchases! Love love love!
Oh and i forgot! i plan on getting this from a seller in facebook i hope it’s still available! sent my order form already. It’s just weird why she’s selling it off!
