A day of shopping and fashion at Fairview Terraces!

by - June 29, 2014

If you read my entry HERE-- about my first ever visit to Fairview Terraces, then you would know how much fun I had at their mall launch. There was quite a few new stores to see and I liked the fact that I visited a new mall other than the ones I'm used to. But my trip to Fairview was 3 months ago, so a lot has happened and changed. Now more stores have opened, so there are more things to do there!:) In case you haven't read it yet, here's a photo diary of what I did at my second visit to FT!

Yesterday, the blogger friends and I made a trip again to the far side of Quezon city for a mall tour and to watch the first day of Style Origin at FT. But before our busy day ahead, we were served a yummy lunch from Recipes--one of my favourite Filipino restaurants!

We had the General's Chicken, Bihon/Canton/Sotanghon (sorry not sure which exactly -_-) Noodles, and Crispy Tilapia. All were equally delicious! I had three servings of noodles hehe!^_^ If you're around Fairview and you want some good ol' Filipino food, drop by the 2nd floor of Fairview Terraces and dine at Recipes!:)

One of the activities we had to do at Fairview Terraces was pick a spot that we liked and take our OOTD photo there. Some of the bloggers picked the grocery, inside the mall or the playground, but most of us sticked with the beautiful scenery/nature vibes outside. :) The garden is too pretty to pass up! OOTD-worthy!

Lakas maka-in the jungle! Roar ang peg! Haha!:))

Now for our mall tour! We were given 7 stores to visit and it was really interesting since 6 out of the 8   stores that we went to, I haven't really encountered at Glorietta or Trinoma. 

Our first stop was Lock&Lock!

I thought Lock & Lock before was just all about plastic containers or products that just plainly stored food. But I was surprised to see that they have more than that. They actually have kitchenware, tumblers, bottles for babies and even Hello Kitty themed items!!:) Too cute! If I had a baby girl, I would probably get those big storage containers for her toys. But since I have boys, i'll stick with the cute Hello Bebe green tumblers and bowls. ^_^

Our next stop was Nature Republic. A new Korean makeup store for all of us to get hooked on. :)

When it comes to Korean beauty stores, I'm not really big on their make-ups, but I really do love their huge selection of nail polish!:) I also like that Nature Republic has a more affordable price--selling at only Php 65 each. :) Eye candies! Aside from their polish, I'm also interested with their hand wash. So many scents to choose from! When in Fairview Terraces, must drop by Nature Republic. :)

For the flip flop fans out there, you'd like the store we stopped by next…

The rainy season is upon us and when the weather starts to get unpredictable, it's best to wear something that you don't mind getting wet. I personally don't like getting my sandals wet, so when I prepare my outfit for school, I make sure that I pick either pick my sneakers or rubber sandals when the weather seems bipolar. I'm sure some of you don't like going for just slippers during the rainy days. So, drop by Bambu to see which stylish pair you'd like to be your partner rain or shine!

I also love that they have pairs for babies. See the one on my palm?? It's SO tiny!! 

After Bambu, we visit yet another footwear store that delivers not only stylish footwear, but comfortable ones. :)

I found Oxy to be another kind of footwear that I find myself wearing to school, because of how comfortable it looks and not to mention the cute colours of their shoes. :) I think this would suit boys the most. Five of our blogger friends were lucky enough to win a free pair each!:) Try visiting your favourite bloggers Instagram or blog to see who got that free Oxy pair. ;)

The fifth store that we visited was Apartment 8! Every fashionista and female celebrity's favourite clothing brand.

I'm sure a lot of you guys have seen celebrities and bloggers like, Kim Chiu, Karylle, Tricia Gosingtian, Vern/Vernice Enciso, Maxene Magalona and more wear Apartment 8. How can they not, right?? The clothes are so pretty! The skirts and dresses are my favourite!:) I love the Apartment-feel of the store as well. Makes me feel like I'm in an apartment, but instead of furnitures, I have lots of clothes! haha!:))

I'm really into almost anything Korean lately, so when I saw our sixth stop, I just got even more excited!:)

CNA is a "Korean fancy shop" that sells all imported Korean accessories and I think this is one of their seven branches in Manila. :) Everything is so quirky in the store that it makes me wanna get everything! But of course, that's not possible, so I got myself three cute stud earrings. ^_^  If I were still a kid, i'd probably get some über cute socks and hair-ties. :) Visit them if you're also into K-Pop bands cos they have a lot of merchandise  for fans, like stickers, button pins and keychains.

The 7th store we went to was C'NTRO by Centropelle.

Another celebrity favourite is C'NTRO. Celebrities like Chynna Ortaleza, Max Collins and Dianne Medina have been seen wearing shoes from them. Centropelle is actually born out of Rusty Lopez. Their shoes are not only trendy, stylish, but reasonably-priced as well. :)

All the bloggers fell in love with the pair of heels above. I love the neon yellow and black combination. :)

The last store we visited for shopping was Chase.

I love the rustic ambiance of the store and aside from that, they have really nice clothes. :) This store isn't only for girls, so I'm sure your guy friends or maybe boyfriends would love to visit this store with you. :) There are really cool tops and jackets here, so be sure to drop by when you're at Fairview Terraces.

Around 6PM, we all went to the activity center to get ready for Style Origin. This is my second one for this year and I was able to watch the MensWeek.

Among all the clothes, i'd definitely pick up a Jeffrey Rogador Neoprene shirt. :) I adore the Pinoy places printed all over the top. I saw a yellow and white version of this for girls and I so want one!!>_<

While aimlessly watching the guys walking down the runway, I didn't even realized at first that the last guy strutting down was actually THE Enchong Dee!

Aside from his obviously handsome looks, the boy can actually sing and dance! Triple threat!:) Thankful that I was at the front row to see this cutie!:)

If you think Enchong Dee is already a treat, wait till you watch later's show!:)

It's gonna be packed with celebrities like, Sarah Lahbati, Richard Gutierrez, Ryzza Mae Dizon, Rico Blanco, Iya Villania, Tom Rodriguez and so much more! So, better go to Fairview Terraces at 4PM for an amazing show. :)

Again, a trip to Fairview Terraces has never failed to make me smile. I went home happy once more!:) Thank you so much Ayala Malls, Movent and our loves Niche and Jeff for having us and taking such good care of us. :) My Saturday was well spent!

    Btw, I hope you don't mind me asking... How do you get to take photos of the shops and their items. I mean, can we, regular shoppers, do that as well? Sometimes, I go to shops that I find worth sharing but often told that taking photos are not allowed :(

  6. @Richelle Hi Richelle!:) Well, I normally take store or product photos when there are events. But if I do find myself in a situation where i want to take a photo of store products, it's either I ask if I'm allowed or I discreetly take pix :)
