Giveaway Alert: FAB MANILA (CLOSED)

Hello gorgeous people!! Now we're on to the second part of my birthday giveaway (in case you haven't joined the first leg yet, click HERE), and I hope you're excited as much as I do!! ☺ Ready yourselves to rave on all these quirky items from one of my most loved brands - FAB MANILA!

More about the brand (from their website): 

Fab Manila came to be because of two sisters who absolutely love art, travel and of course bags!

Jen and She are not afraid to experiment with prints and colors. Fab Manila does your basic and functional bag but it’s always done with a bright burst of color or a unique fabric. No boring black bags here ladies!

The designs are one of a kind and they definitely stand out. The bags and accessories are all limited editions and are not sold anywhere else except at select boutiques. Only a few items of each style are produced so a Fab Manila girl will never bump into another girl with the same bag! However, above all else, Fab Manila bags are crafted with great care and attention to detail.

Brace yourselves for these lovely items from Fab Manila! Two (2) lucky winners will be able to receive these:

Here's how the travel envelope looks like inside!!! Don't you just love it??

The first winner will be able to get a color-blocked travel envelope and sunnies case!

Winner # 2 will be receiving a mini wallet, polly wristlet and a pencil case with cute prints!

Bag Love Confession

Tired of burning all your cash on expensive designer bags? Want to have something in your arm that will catch the eye of everyone? Well, one London-based brand called Accessorize is here to give remedy to all our frustrations on dainty bags!

And yes, I was also in a search for the perfect bag before. With perfect, for me, means something that is easy to carry but can fit in all my needed stuff for the day, something unique and can depict my personality. And hail! During the Accessorize event where I luckily took home this lovely brown bag you're about to see, I can now declare that the chase is FINALLY over!

I love how this bag is just so flexible to fit every woman - to students, to those who work in community spaces or in the corporate world, and even to those in the comfort of their own homes. You have to agree, it's truly sublime!

I also adore how classy looking this bag is, and that it owns an earth tone which can totally rock any outfit!

This was taken during the Accessorize event which I blogged about here. I knew I couldn't wait any longer, so I wore it as soon as I had it! I believe we were really destined. *insert kilig smiley here* Too pretty to resist!

Wore the Accessorize bag again for a weekend getaway with my family!

Now I'll try to convince you on how lavish this bag is! Continue reading!

As I've said earlier, it can fit everything that I'll be needing for the day! Inside this bag are the following: 
♦ my Starbucks 2011 planner
♦ Purpose Driven Life book
♦ FUNctional notebook
♦ My make-up kit
♦ Hygienix hand gel
♦ my three (3) wallets

My umbrella and trustee pens for school are also in there but they're not seen in the photo.

Each one of us deserves a perfect companion, to our current life and relationships, from simple prayers and hopes. I suppose this bag's gonna be my buddy!

That's it for my bag love confession! ♥

Loveys, we still have 2 days to go for the Accessorize's All About Bags Sale! Go and raid before it's too late! xx

MANGO: Fashion, Style and Femininity

Last November 12, 2011, my co-bloggers (Jonver DavidKaye AwatinVergil Chua, Lawr'yeng Castro) and I went to Shangri-la Mall to view the latest collection of one of our most loved stores, Mango. This time, the brand is launching a television campaign starring the British model and fashion icon Kate Moss, with the renowned photographer Terry Richardson, to promote their collection for the Autumn/Winter 2011. And by the way, this new communication strategy of Mango is actually their first for the international scale. You can try to view the video here. Way to go for Mango! 

So without further ado, here are some of Mango's fashion products for this season!

Wish I have all these in my closet! Lovely clothes!!

Took a closer shot of two of my favorite dresses in their display - the floral dress and the little white dress!

Denims and gorgeous coats

Fell in love with this long black dress. It actually has a surprise detail at the back! Too bad I wasn't able to take a photo of it.

Oh these dresses got me drooling here!

I want this leather skirt!!!! OMG!

And this, by far, is my most favorite piece from Mango. I'm sure Lawr'yeng loved this, too! :p

They also have these great finds for casual wear!

And finally, shoes, accessories and bags!!

Cutesy flats, classy pumps and fab heels!

They've got a wide range of accessories!

And... these bags took my fancy that I can even wear them everyday!

Hope you had fun and already chose your favorites in this mini and virtual gallery of Mango's collection, loveys! Surely, Mango did well in associating fashion, style and femininity in all these! Visit any Mango branches as soon as possible! :)
