MiNiSO: SM City Manila ♥

by - November 06, 2016

No matter how near or far, just say the words "cute", "quirky" or "wasteland" and I'm ultimately there! SOLD! :) There is nothing that I love more than kawaii things. It brings a rush to my system and instantly brings good vibes. :) 

And speaking of kawaii, Miniso, a lifestyle store that originated in Japan has opened their third store (if I'm not mistaken) at the 2nd level of SM City Manila this weekend. 

Miniso has opened more than 1,400 stores around the world and it is exciting that they're starting to expand here in the Philippines. :) The brand dedicates itself to providing customers with quality, creative and low-price products. Miniso always persists in selecting fine materials from all over the world. Over 80% of the brand's product designs originated from Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, China and other countries.

For the year 2016, Miniso Philippines' opened their first outlet at Robinsons Place Manila last June 2016 and two this November - one of which, I was fortunate enough to witness. :)

The SM City Manila opening was graced by GMA Artists Gabbi Garcia and Ruru Madrid. 

Just seeing Miniso from the outside was already making my heart flutter! I wanted to make a dash for it. But, be still my beating heart! >_< Patience! Ribbon cutting muna! :) 

If you're not familiar with Miniso, the products that they offer compose of Life Department, Creative Home Necessities, Health & Beauty, Jewelry Series, Stylistic Gifts, Seasonal Products, Boutique Package Decoration, Digital Accessories and Food & Drink. Basically, anything and everything you can think of! The store is for all ages!

It also reminds of Uniqlo, but instead of clothes, they sell all these awesome knick-knacks. :)

The stuff at Miniso are crazy affordable! Items go for as low as Php 99 and look at these adorable stuffed animals for only Php 149! Wow, right??! Already a perfect gift idea for the kids and kids at heart in your life! ^_^

Shopped with my love Arnie!

Was glancing at the Jewelry section when I saw these adorable origami themed earrings! I dropped my basket and swooned over them. :) I just had to get the paper boat! But look at the beautiful detail on the paper crane! These are only Php 149!

Tis the season to be jolly and you can show it all the more with these adorable Christmas clips. :)

I don't really wear eyeshades, but I wouldn't mind have one or two of these! Too cute!

To my Japan In Manila friends, they would totally dig these...

Anello and Fjallraven inspired bags! Love at first sight for me! ^_^
3 pens for only Php 100 and rolls of washi tape for Php 99... Seriously, how can I resist these bargain?? Low EQ moment! >_< Send help! Haha!

Being a mom, I can't help but feel a little domesticated and with Miniso's cute Home Necessities, I am more encouraged than ever to get them for our kitchen!

Kitchen towel --- WHY SO CUTE??? 

Egg or pancake pans for only Php 99 each!

I never thought I would say this ever in my life time, but this shelf made me want to hoard tumblers. Yuuuuuup... Miniso will have that effect on you. >_<

Like I said, Miniso is for all ages and this adorable Police car bubble blower reminded me of my kids while shopping. I bet they wouldn't want to leave the store without anything in tow!

Techie? They also got you covered! 

Power banks, USB port, headphones, phone case, fans, and more are available at Miniso. :)

Curious about these Japanese snacks....

Japanese umbrellas for only Php 99!
