BBM + F21 launch party

Warning: This post is photo heavy. :P

So, last weekend I was at The Collective the whole day for the Brown Bag Market bazaar. It was super super hot that day and I consistently felt like an ice cream melting away. I was restless and agitated, BUT friends made my ordeal a whole lot easier. :) Buyers were scarce (coz there were a gazillion bazaars  also happening around the area) but it didn't stop us from having fun. :) I also shopped more than I earned. Epic fail. Hah.

So here's how it went in photos...

with a reader (thanks for buying!) :)

Alex's DIY shirt. I love!

Chika chika (in english: talking like there's no tomorrow, hah)

Class picture! Bea of skysenshi, Ana of fashion commuter, Alex of reluctant stylista, moi, Melai of style&soul, Denise of simones closet

with the owner of Sunday's Best :)

with Ava and Vern!

We then attended the Awearness: Eco Fashion and Beauty Forum...

...which started with Vern giving a demo and talk about make-up! Seen here with muse Ava:) In Athan's word: "BRAVO!!!"

 Love this bag from Green Minded Missy! It's handmade with love. :)

Alex trying on Mary Kay's oil mattifier! Works like magic! :)

Melai and Ana gave it a try as well. Just apply it on an oily face...

....and, voila! Instant freshness. Aylavet.

We were then treated to a free merienda from Pasta Box (sorry no photo) and was given these freebies from Envirosack and Bare Minerals.

Love this bag from envirosack! I love that it can hold a lot of things.

with Lauren:)

i love Melai and Denise's booth!

Free coffee! (haggardness galore--i only slept for 2 hours!)

Ariane of A&B in the sea, moi, Ava and Ana

I got to sneak out for some outfit shots!

top & skirt - thrifted, shoes - bought online, necklace-greenhills, other accs-random

At around 8, I changed and got ready for the Forever 21 party. Kookie (with Nicole) was nice enough to pick me up. They also did their own shopping before we left!

I was so reluctant to go to the party coz I haven't slept, I was so tired, and I was feeling icky from sweating all day. But, it was for a job so I had no choice. This dress from Melai was a lifesaver. I actually brought a black long sleeves velvet bodycon dress (which I should have worn to blend in! Also, according to Nicole the whole pink thing is so not me, I agree! hehe) but it was--as I said--scorching hot. I'm almost sure that I wouldn't last 5 minutes in it, I'd die of heatstroke. Lol. This pink dress from Melai's store, fashionstopshop, is so light and breezy. I had to laugh at myself for totally diverting from my usual style. I looked like an ambushed Paris Hilton. Eek. 

Anyway, upon arrival at Member's Only, we were then greeted by the rest of the FFT. Such a fabulous bunch. :) Here's some photos from the event. Some photos were grabbed from Lissa (one of the 5 brand ambassadors of F21 Philippines), Kookie, Nicole and Karl.

The zombie me made it through the day. Yey! But not the zombie-on-a-shopping-ban me. 

The damages:

Human Nature shampoo & conditioner (which smells amazing btw!) and their magic oil! I'm using it on my undereye circles and it does make mine more manageable. 

Cute dress from F-stop.

...and another one. 

That's it! To all the bloggers and other equally fabulous people who I met that day--it was so nice to meet you! Til next! =)
