A new DIVA is in town!

by - November 08, 2011

Got invited to the Bloggers Camp and launch of the first ever branch of a new accessories store called, LOVE DIVA today at Alabang Town Center. But this time the event wasn't just for us old bloggers. It was mainly for our Diva Sisters/ newbie bloggers that want to learn more about blogging, experience events and of course so that we can bond as well!:)

I love it when stores take the time to make a signage (such as the one above). It really makes me feel that bloggers are special. :) Just so you know, this wasn't like boot camp. It was excessorize camp!:)


Look at the little cutie pie that I saw when I came in the store; Angel's baby girl, Syrena! I love her! I didn't wanna give her back to Angel!:))


Spotted: Ms. J's cute jelly bow wedges!
I bet Katy Perry went into your mind ;)


Hearts, stars, pink bags, cookies and cupcakes...Oh my!:)

Before I proceed with the activities we did, I'd like to give you a little tour of the store and a few of the accessories that LOVE DIVA has in store for all their lovely clients...


BTW, this is just the right side. You have got to see the left! I could so overwhelmed with the all the beautiful accessories when I came in. First thought was, "Do I go left or right??" *panics* Oh and whether its purple, white, red, blue or pink you're looking for, they have it for you and they're even arranged by color. ;)

Dangling earrings anyone?:)


For the Boho-Hippie lover in you! I think this area or style is my favorite because I had such a difficult time letting go of all the peace bracelets, feathers and turquoise color I see. :)) Got too attached!

LOVE DIVA accessories caters for teens but I also think that moms who have little girls would surely enjoy shopping at LOVE DIVA because of the quirky and hypoallergenic accessories they have like their earrings...


*side note: This November- As an ambassador of the Pink Heart Promise, love diva Philippines will hold a free ear piercing event in-store in partnership with leading health service provider, Healthway.  
Call me kiddy, but I SO wanted these charms!!^_^


 Just an example of Angel and her daughter Syrena...Look who's already shopping, mommy!


Mommy Sarah also brought her cute daughter, Nikola! This made me wish more that I brought Athan with me! Awww!

That's it for my accessories tour! If you want to see more you'd have to visit the store and I'm sure you won't regret it. ;) For now, I'm moving on with the activities we need for the day. First we introduced ourselves along with our blog sisters, then there was a bring-me game, which luckily my little sister, Allyzon won! Go team!:) Then after we had a blogging workshop conducted by these lovely ladies...


Kookie talked about blogging. Like how she got started, what she blogs about and what she thinks of blogging and more. She's really an inspiration. I love what she said about blogging what you're passionate about. One of my favorite bloggers!

Melai gave a short talk on the opportunities of blogging and I definitely think she's one of the best persons to ask about that due to her numerous experiences. :)

Tracy and Tin gave the final talk about the different kinds of styling. Just a little tip from Tracy, "It's okay to repeat clothes especially if you love it." So true! They also gave a little tip on how to handle haters. :)


And this is all of us listening attentively. Yey!

When the talk was over we had a final game, which was for our little sisters to style us! I found this really fun because we get to be their mannequin and they'll be fixing us up according to THEIR style...


Meet my sisters: Pauline and Allyzon. They were trying to brainstorm which accessories would go best with my plain grey and pink ensemble. Should they go for subtle or bold/loud accessories?:)


Here's how the other readers styled their bloggers: Cheyser, Sarah, Kookie, Me, Pax, Melai, Ana, Vern, Alyssa, Keigh (at the back :( ) and Tin


And here's a close up of mine! Great job, sisters! They layered and worked their colors well! I love it!


Since the styling was a game, LOVE DIVA had to pick a winner and they picked the team of Ana, Frances, Bei and Bea. Congratulations, girls!! Ana looks Boho-chic!^_^

When the game was over, we were all given a surprise by LOVE DIVA. They gave us a pink certificate and along with that was a note that we can shop for Php 1k worth of accessories. We got first dibs!:)


I told you my favorite was the Boho-Hippie area. ;) Can't get enough. Love, love, love!

I thought after the launching at the store that the event would end like what I'm used to at most events but little did I know that LOVE DIVA also had CYMA prepare a buffet for us!


The food was super good that Beb Ana and I just had to go for a second round. Thank you, Cyma!

Final pictures before parting...


With my readers and little sisters: Czarina (she's paxie's sister.. pahiram!=P), Allyzon and Pauline. I just wanna say that I really had fun with you, girls. You were all so nice, sweet, pretty and all in all awesome. If the event could last for hours I wouldn't mind spending it with you. Fun times! Thank you for making this event memorable! You girls made Monday amazing for me. BIG HUG! 


The loot bags. :)
