photo of my loot from BU3. :) Details after the read more jump. :)
I wanted a simple, comfortable outfit for Bloggers United 3. Having been able to go to BU2, I expected to elbow my way through the crazy crowd. With that in mind, I went with the no brainer outfit- a no fuss top, denim shorts, and my favorite boots from Zara. (pardon the puffy eyes, I think I had too much sleep. O.O)
My sister and I arrived at around 2 pm already, really late considering a lot of the good stuff have already been sold earlier that day. But what the hey, I still wanted to try my luck, and maybe score some great finds along the way. Teehee.
Meeting bloggers was a great bonus for everyone there, fans and bloggers alike got to mingle and get to know each other more. :) Highlights of my day were, (a) Camille recognizing me (we graduated from the same high school), yay!, and (b) meeting one of my favorite Lookbook-ers of all ,time Anastasia Siantar!
See me smiling ear to ear? The recognition fueled that smile. Fangirl much? Eww. HAHAHAHA
Anastasia S., isn’t she the cutest?
Now onto the event proper, as expected, there were a lot of sponsored booths, which translates to, freebies galore! Even if you weren’t able to buy anything from the bloggers, you won’t go home empty handed from all the freebies! And oh, I was lucky enough to be able to win an Accessorize clutch from the bring me game. The challenge was to bring any Accessorize item on stage! Coincidentally, I was carrying my favorite Accessorize floral satchel, and just walking by the stage when that challenge was announced, yay for me! Other sponsors that gave out freebies were ETC, Zalora PH, Raffles Institute, Meg magazine, Colgate, Clear, among others.
As for the people? Let’s just say the event never had the problem of having a little crowd. I swear, every blogger booth was packed with eager shoppers, waiting to find a treasure from their beloved fashion icons. And did I mention Divine Lee was there? Her shoes are amazing! Too bad they’re too big for my size 8 feet. All in all, I had a great time, after all, you always have agreat time with shopping. For a girl like me, anyway. :)
Another thing, I would like to give a shoutout to my sister, Mireya, for always letting me drag her out to events when no one else can accompany me and for taking my outfit shots! You know I love you to bits!
P.S. Join my OASAP GIVEAWAY! I get to pick one winner for every 100 entries, so share the word to get more chances of winning! :)

My little sis with Laureen
With the fabulous Danah, I was just going to take a photo of Stacy and Danah together, but Stacy was busy, so Danah did this funny come hither thing and we had a photo taken instead!
I just couldn’t resist asking for a photo with her. LOL
Great host, Melai!
with the Accessorize bag that won me another Accessorize bag. Teehee
The stuff I actually got. Bowler Hat from I forgot which booth. O.O
I’ve been eyeing this pair from Accessorize branches for a long time, and since it’s already marked down, I finally decided to buy them, beach slippers, yay! The silver clutch on the left? that’s what I won from the Bring Me game. :)
Romper and shorts from Vern & Verniece’s booth (Their mom gave me a huge discount on these. :))
Charlotte Russe Top from Alyssa Lapid (I actually bought this top for my sister, since cardigan+tank+pants, is basically her uniform in DLSU. haha)
