Brown Bag Market is more fun with family & friends :)

Just got back from a late dinner with the family at MoA and The Brown Bag Market event at The Collective :) About the event, let me tell you...

Just got back from a late dinner with the family at MoA and The Brown Bag Market event at The Collective :) About the event, let me tell you, Wow! I never expected to stay so long there. I only planned on going around a bit, talk to my friends, eat and head home. But I was already having so much fun talking to Ana, Pax, Melai, Denise and Maris and going to different booths, that I forgot about the time and stayed from 2PM till 9PM!=p I know I stayed there for almost 7 hours, so let me share with you guys what we did there exactly...

The family and I got there at around 2PM. We haven't eaten lunch yet, so I asked Gersh if we could eat at Pasta Box, because I've been wanting to try their pasta ever since I saw it Pax' blog. Fortunately, we got there just in time and after a few minutes they closed down for a while.

Not only is their food good, but I love the look of their resto and
their uber cute takeout box!

Gersh ordered Green Pesto, while I had Puttanesca :)
(currently drooling as I'm writing this...=p~)

When lunch was done, Gersh and I went to check out this awesome Vinyl store that sells designer collectible toys and old school records. I really wanted to get Gersh a vinyl record, but they didn't have the artists that he wanted. Tough luck. :( Their record prices range from Php 200- Php600.

After exploring the Vinyl shop, I headed over to visit the booths of my fellow blogger/entrepreneur friends. As promised, I'm there to support them!:)

At around 3:00PM we had Vern of A Shoe Tale to give us a makeup tutorial and I was chosen to be Vern's model, because I wasn't wearing any makeup and for people to see how the makeup should be applied and how it looks on a person. :)

Vern looking Chic :)

I like her tip on using the eye liner inside your eyelids to make
your eyes look bigger :)

For their night time program, they had film showing about the environment and Athan was very keen on watching them...

Sitting quietly in his seat. SO cute!^_^

Since this day also served as a blogger meet-up and a happy gathering, I can never do away posting pictures with my fellow bloggers, family, and friends!
(too bad wasn't able to take pictures with Arianne of A plus B in the Sea and Alex of Reluctant Stylista =( )

As for what I bought at the bazaar, I only have these three and for only less than Php 350. Amazing!:)

Camera necklace from Your Secret Closet and Elephant Ring from Anagon

And Gersh got me this; Peppermint & Mango Butter Conditioner
from Human Heart Nature. :)

I know this should be at the beginning of my entry, but anyhoo, I really like the concept of "BROWN BAG MARKET" event. The store owners are encouraged to use Brown bags instead of plastic for their products. I think the less plastic people use, the better. So, great idea!;) And they promoted organic food, shampoo, soap, etc. and things made from natural stuff. Makes people aware, that fashion can also be environment-friendly too!

We also got freebies from Envirosax and Bare Beauty Minerals for attending the Awareness: Eco Fashion & Beauty Forum. I've always wanted an Envirosax, so I can use reuse it every time I shop and easily put them all in the bag and still shop in style. Also thinking of using it as Athan's baby bag. ;) As for the Bare Minerals, those are what Vern used on me during the tutorial. :)

For my OUTFIT POST:

Neon Green Top: Thank you so much to Melai of F-STOP for giving me this really nice top! http://fashionstopshop.multiply.com/ | Pants: TCP boyfriend jeans | Necklace: Anagon http://anagoncollection.multiply.com/ | Shoes: nine west

And at 9PM everyone started to pack and we helped Pax and Ana clean up. They were teasing me on how I should also be doing bazaars, because I was there the whole day. Hehe! I just really enjoyed being in their company. Thank you for the fun day! Congrats to Nori for a successful event! Till next time!;) Sorry for the novela-like entry. Today was just a really good day for me and thats a big thing, because I was down yesterday and I feel like God gave heard my prayer. :) I just wanted to share that with you all. Have a great SUNDAY! :)

  12. Love your outfit
    I'm really glad the Philippines is following on the trend of using less plastic. Here in Toronto, they charge you 5c per bag so people are encouraged to bring their own reusable bags.
    I love the camera necklace!!!
