Carnival de Rainhas 09.18.2011

September 18, 2011. Carnival de Rainhas.

Unlike Port 88, this bazaar in Rockwell did not just border on clothes, shoes and accessories. Although it did not exactly turn out to be the ultimate fashion destination that I thought of, I did not go home disappointed. There were games, prizes, and food. Lots of food!

I was able to find some quirky stuff while roaming around, but I was mainly pigging out the entire time. I went gaga over the sweets- there were cupcakes, gelato, chocolates and pastries. It’s like a mini version of Candyland!

And that's me and my rose tequila gelato <3

The most fashionable cupcakes! ;)

P.S. If you’re wondering how my hair suddenly grew inches longer in the span of 24 hours, I shall spill the beans on my next post. :)

Port 88 Bazaar 09.17.2011

September 17, 2011. Port 88 Bazaar.

I’m not always present when there are scheduled bazaars around the metro, but the past weekend I obviously got carried away and went bazaar-hopping to my heart’s content. My first stop: the biggest mid-year bazaar held at The Megatent Events Venue.

My friends and I went to Port 88 last Saturday  after watching Contagion (which was, by the way, a very intelligent film). We were just in Greenhills so we thought of dropping by, and I couldn’t bear  the thought of missing out on all the shopping excitement with some of the trendiest brands participating in the event. And when we got there, oh boy, I was so right. Megatent was practically oozing with pretty clothes, cute accessories, and beautiful shoes scattered all around the place. There’s Cole Vintage, Virtual Mae, Five By Five, So!Fab, Charles & Keith and many more. It’s a crazy shopping haven. You’d want to take everything home!

Scroll down and take a peek:

FYI: All photos were taken by my boyfriend Mark. Sorry for looking a bit cranky. I went here straight from the office. And though my skirt is maybe a bit too short, I swear I tried my best to adhere to corporate dress code. :)

With my sister Micah <3

Cute statement rings. Sex and The City. LOL. =P

My friend Khryc and the girls behind Erzullie for plus-sized beauties :)

Almost everything's on sale! :D

I wasn’t exactly a big fan of bazaars, but this time I had a whooping experience! I am so excited to try on everything I bought, and I’m already looking forward to next year’s Port 88 event. Totally blissful!
