Accessorize Event and on Real-World Links

Even before the event date, I was already so excited to be invited at the Exclusive Press Preview and Pullout Event last Wednesday by Ms. Ayet Quimpo, marketing specialist of M2 Brands whom we met before during the affair in Robinsons Midtown. The big bloggers event was for the different foreign brands such as Accessorize, Boboli, 7 for all Mankind, American Rag, Vans, Salsa, Elite, and Terranova. Also, I was excited to have another gathering with my online buddies!

The Outfit Pre-Event
Met Krissy in MRT Ayala, since she is a North girl, we decided to go together. I was wearing this on my long commute (tricycle, jeep, bus) from Alabang to Ayala:

 Black Bowler Hat (Anagon)
Gray Shirt (Bench)
Floral Jumpsuit, worn as trousers (All That Jazz, my tita’s)
Black Flats (Landmark)

Introduced Krissy to Tamems, who has a place near Greenbelt where we can change and put on our make ups. It was cool to have two friends from different walks of life to finally meet. :)

 Of course, Tamems is now my official event MUA, haha! (Thank you for taking our pic, Krissy!)

 Thank you for my beautiful make up Tamems! :)

With pretty in pink Krissy!

Photo op before leaving! Parang prom lang! ;D

Ava fetched us in GB3. Thanks for the ride Beb! :)

Ava and Krissy are both my buyers-turned-friends; I already introduced them to each other in another bloggers event. Our trio was so funny during our drive: we realized we all don’t know which way to go to A.Venue!!! Looking back, we were hilarious— though I was totally tensed that time!

Ava's surprised shriek when a motorbike just came out of nowhere (but never honking her horn too loud!), Krissy can’t see the street signs because of being near-sighted, and yours truly, the worst person when it comes to roads, trying to figure out if I can navigate our way based on memories of the places I had been to, haha! Thank God even though we reached the venue an hour late, the program hasn’t started yet!

By the registration area with smiling Krissy (thanks Ava for the photo!)

Meeting Ms. Ayet! :) Thank you for inviting us! =)

 Ms. Monica, who readily posed with all the bloggers! :)

There’s a new blogger in da house!
Ate was already there! Introduced her to my blogger friends, then took photos with the cute Accessorize bags on display!

I love the event set-up! All the brands were showcased in separate stall-spaces resembling the bazaars I’ve participated in. They’re so near our cocktail tables, it was tempting to go shopping good thing they weren’t for sale! Afterwards, they had a fashion show:

Clothes from 7 For All Mankind

And of course, photo op with everybody: the activity we bloggers just love! I told Ms. Ayet “Eto ang magpapatagal ng isang event!” Hehe!

With Tin of Fashion Ate the World!

 With stylish girls Bestie and Alex!

 Beb Ava and her to-die-for floral oxfords! :)

 Krissy and my sister Kaka, socializing! :D

 My girls: Pax, Melai, Ava

 With the girls from Vans: Cali and Kath

...Which at the end of the night (and I couldn't take my sore feet anymore, hehe)...

Changed back to my black flats before commuting home! Hehe!

Some of us ended the night with a fun dinner in the nearby Sicilian Express...

JR, Melai, Ate, Me!, Pax and her peace sign, Mich, Ava, and Gersh

More than the pasta and white cheese pizza we shared, I went home full:

…Of stories and laughters during the dinner and our car ride to Ayala station (thanks to Melai and JR!)

…Of freebies from the different prestigious and generous brands and kind friends:

Boy, do I love freebies! :D Haha!
Again, thank you Accessorize, Boboli, 7 for all Mankind, American Rag, Vans, Salsa, Elite, and Terranova!!!

A favorite: Dainty white clutch with silver chains strap from Accessorize! :)

A cute heart Barbie tin can from Krissy! :) Thank you!!!
I appreciate your thoughtfulness, sis!!

And of course, pardon the cheesiness again, but my heart also went home full because I felt genuineness in these formed friendships over the Internet. And seeing that the high school friend, the long time and the new buyers, the Blogger contacts, the fellow online sellers, and even the respective partners, can all be friends outside the World Wide Web made me happy. Before, we just put each others’ names on our blog LINKS, and now we are actually linked even in the real world!
