Two Bazaars in One Day: Noel Bazaar and Trendsetter's Bazaar

Last Saturday, we were scheduled to go to the Filinvest Tent in Alabang to attend the Noel Bazaar and take a peak of what it has to offer. It has the staple goodies like clothes, food, novelty items and accessories. It did not take us two hours to finish wandering from booth to booth as there are few people to maneuver (hence, less "excuse me po" than usual) and the booths are well-organized.

{Clockwise from Left: Tickets for the Noel Bazaar Swings South (P50.00 entrance); tickets for the Trendsetter's Bazaar (Php 100.00); novelty items found in Trendsetter's Bazaar; creative event styling at the Noel Bazaar for photo op; and some Christmas decors found in Noel Bazaar}
Since we still have a few hours to spare, we decided to drive ourselves straight to the World Trade Center in Pasay City to attend the Trendsetter's Bazaar. We were a bit shock to find that the fair's ambiance is completely different from the calm and well-organized Noel Bazaar. The concessionaires were placed at the entrance so you had to watch out for the hungry and angry people who'd like to buy their food before you could even reach the ticket booth. As soon as you enter the hall, you'll find yourself in a sea of people cramming for the best bargain. It took us about five hours to finish shopping, which I can say is worth all the trouble especially when you're the type who loves bargain. Looking forward to more bazaars coming this year! :)

Graco Alano Classic Connect Travel System

We've been eagerly looking for a nice stroller and carseat as early as September, when I was only about 18 weeks pregnant. As this is our first child, we wanted to get a brand new set for the safety of our baby but it's hard to find an easier-to-use travel system that won't burn our pockets.

One of the trusted brands for baby rides is Graco and we were so ecstatic to find one on sale during the S&R Member's Treat last September.

{The Graco Alano Classic Connect Travel System, which we got for only P7999.95 (compared to it's mall price of about P17,000.00), some beddings and things we got from the sale.}

 The SnugRide that came with the set is one of the best-rated car seats on the market; it's comfortable and easy to install. The seat releases easily from the base and then clicks securely into the stroller, which smoothly traverses bumpy sidewalks or uneven dirt paths.
The child's tray swivels up so you can easily strap in your little one; the stroller harness converts from a five-point to a three-point, which adds to its useful life; cup holders for both parent and child are deep and will hold a latte or a sippy cup without tumbling over – even when the stroller hops over curbs. The storage basket is spacious and can be folded up and down for easy loading. The stroller folds up into a compact shape and stands by itself when folded.

Newest Stash from Yves Rocher France

I was looking for a nice smelling body lotion for days until last weekend, we ended up visiting the Yves Rocher SM Southmall branch. It's one of my favorite go-to stores when I needed something to pamper my skin. I was extra happy as most of the items are on sale.

I got a 400 mL Olive Oil Silky Lotion for only 595.00 (from 795.00) and because I fell in love with it's sweet scent, I ended up buying a 100 mL Cherry Bloom eau de toilette (1,295.00). And as a gift, the store manager gave me two sample sizes of Ambre Noir for my husband. :)

{Olive Oil Silky Lotion, 400mL for 595.00; Cherry Bloom eau de toilette, 100mL for 1,295.00; Ambre Noir, 4mL sample size}

Yves Rocher has stores in SM North Edsa (The Block), SM Southmall, SM Fairview, Ayala Center Cebu, Trinoma and Centrio CDO.

Give Your Own "BDJ Box" this Christmas

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

I love Christmas! It's the time of the year where you can shop not only for yourself but for your friends and loved ones. The shopaholic in me has never been  this happy all year round. :)

Anyway, I do have heaps of BDJ boxes from my monthly subscription and they are just so beautiful to just be thrown away. I've been nesting (that feminine urge to clean your space) for quite some time now when it hit me~ use those boxes as Christmas gift boxes!

So, here's what I did:

I gathered some knick knacks for  each of my girls depending on their personality and needs. I put cosmetics, fashion jewelries, product samples and novelty items. I also throw in a BDJ inspirational sticker on each boxes for good measure.

{Converting BDJ boxes to my very own Christmas Box full of knick knacks especially hand-picked for my girls}

Been Out and About...

Oh my! I did not realize that it's been months since my last entry in this blog. Many things happened in my life that I totally forgot to post an entry. There were times when I really have this urge to post but didn't know where to start. 

My life took a full swing mid March. We traveled out of the country for some time, which contributed on my absence in the blogging world. We had a new car. Career change and then, I got pregnant!

Yes, hubby and I are now expecting our first child, which is the main reason why I can't use some beauty products (so there will be far less product review posts, bummer). Anyhow, researching and preparing for this pregnancy took most of my time. Mind you, it's both wonderful and nerve-wracking. You may expect baby and pregnancy-related posts in the future :)

Anyway, it's that time of the year again when fairs, bazaars and warehouse sales are not to be missed. I will gladly share my adventures about some of these in the future. For now, since Christmas is fast approaching (it's 83 days before Christmas, people!) what I'd like to share with you is the iconic earth-friendly yet stylish way of recycling those BDJ monthly boxes:

It's easy to do yet presentable. You can read more about it here. :)
