A day at Manila Sundance Bazaar

by - September 08, 2013

So today is Sunday and that officially marks the last day of the Manila Sundance Bazaar. I'm so happy I was able to go yesterday despite the heavy rain. I was actually driving to Metrotent with the Hubby when it decided to rain like cats and dogs! We even got stuck in traffic for an hour and cars only moved a few inches after every 10 minutes. That bad. -_- But I think the Sun God took pity on me and decided to shine once more (SUN-dance raw kasi... get it?? Corny I know!! I kid I kid!! Lol!=P) and yes! I was able to enjoy half of my day at MSB!^_^

There were so many booths at MSB that you wouldn't know where to start. It's like going through a maze, but you surely know that you're going to walk out with awesome stuff in the end and the entrance fee is only Php 50! Definitely worth it. :)

The first booth I visited was SugarPlum Lifestyle. They sell bath and body products, aroma therapy products, home fragrances, gift sets and of course, the cutest items I have ever seen!!^_^ I have a thing for macarons and seeing them as novelties or jewellery containers and ear caps just totally got me sold! I wanted to have everything. But that's really pocket-friendly, so I bought what tickled my fancy the most. Can you guess what?=P

Before I went to my next stop, I bumped into a few blogger and seller friends there!:) I believe that's the best part about shopping at bazaars. You should always have friends with you!

Nice seeing you again, girls; Arnie, Megann, Evan, Dani, Denise and Bella!:) Had a great time!

The next booth I went to visit was my good friend, Evan's!:) She's the brainchild of Indie-Go Boutique and she has really nice clothes! *hint* Karylle Tatlonghari, Maja Salvador and Solenn wears her clothes!;)

If you're the girly type, then you'll definitely find cute rompers and dresses here. As an added bonus, they're even on SALE! :)

And next, what girl in her right senses can resist arm candies, right?? I sure can't!:)

I stopped by to see the lovely set of bracelets over at Shopaholic & Hubby. I certainly loved their Chinese charmed bracelets. Got two! But I think for Php 200, you can get 3. ^_^ Oh and because the shop's name is Shopaholic & HUBBY, they also cater to some stuff for men. So don't fret, guys! This bazaar isn't only for girls. :)

Since this bazaar's name sorta reminds me of being free-spirited or Coachella, I think it's but right that I drop by Flaura Tiara to get myself a floral wreath!

One of the prettiest booths at MSB for me and they make all their flower tiaras by hand!:) Even saw them as a family working on it awhile ago. Makes it even more special. ^_^ Thank you, Belle and Vibeth for my very own Flaura Tiara! BTW, stocks are running out fast, so be sure to catch them!

Another booth stop for me was Paradise Treats. This is actually one of the brands that I was looking forward to seeing at MSB. They have clothes that definitely match my colourful and dainty peg. :) Also, their cut-out tops are the love! Perfect for the heat nowadays!

Reason why i was looking forward to seeing Paradise Treats was because I wanted to meet the lady behind it; Patricia!:) Thank you so much for always being so nice! Happy I finally got the chance to meet you in person. Oh! Karylle also wore something for P.T. before!:)

Twinkle Toes

Known swimsuit brand- Nudo Swimwear and footwear brand- Tutum Shoes were there too. A lot of people kept going to their booth. :) For mommies who have little girls, it's high time to be matchy-matchy with your baby girls over at Tutum!^_^

I also encountered a shoe brand called Twinkle Toes with the coolest flats. It has interchangeable straps and you can just mix and match them. How awesome, right?? I want!:((

And save the best for last...

That caps off my Manila Sundance Bazaar experience!:) I had so much fun! Thank you to the wonderful friends and sellers I got to meet yesterday. You were all so sweet! I feel grateful to have met you, guys!

I know this post is lengthy, but believe me, the booths I visited is not even half of the brands that are present at MSB. There's more to see if you go there yourself, so I suggest you do! It's the last day and opens from 11:00 AM-10:00 PM at Metrotent, Ortigas. :) Shop for some early Christmas presents!
