I hit the “Shop @ The Fort bazaar” over at NBC Tent last night and I must say, it is definitely one of the most impressive bazaars that I’ve ever been to, as far as selection of items is concerned. Thanks to Karl Edward International for making the bazaar, a definite thumbs up! The items are all of good quality, so no cheap-looking pirated crap here. So here’s my loot….
Yep she has a name. Hehe. If you’ve known me for quite a while, you’d know that I give names to a lot of my stuff. For instance, there’s Jupiter for my laptop, Kawaii for my pink cellphone and Sookie my Canon digicam.
Anyways, so I’ve been lemming this yellow bag over at Rustan’s Makati and I almost carved it in stone that I was going to come back for it before the year ends. The damage for that bag is PHP 1,700 plus.
But when I hit the bazaar yesterday, I found this baby for PHP 950, the lowest I could manage to nego was PHP 900 (makunat!) but counting my bills, I knew I had to grab it otherwise, I might lose sleep over visions of donning a yellow bag.
I love the opening! This pretty much solves my problems with zippers. I swear with all the bags that I have, give or take around 12 to 15 of em’ don’t have zipper pulleys anymore. I have a tendency to snap that darn thing off especially when I’m rushing.
Another thing that I absolutely love about this bag (well aside from the striking fashionista color), is the fact that it fits all my loot snugly with its mini-partition in the middle that separates my stuff (refer to photo above). It’s also easy to find everything because its just laid out pretty nicely once you open the bag. I like the nice floral lining detail underneath, the big pockets outside and best of all, I love that it expands so even if it looks like I’m just carrying a little bag (which is so unlike me), this bag is actually quite huge. The power of illusions…EYELOVET!!!
I stopped by this stall that offered a deal of “3 items for PHP 200”. So I rummaged through the little basket with all these eyeliners, lipsticks, lipglosses and such, and decided on these final 3.
This is the e.l.f. brightening eye color liner and it comes with its own e.l.f. sharpener. Below is a swatch of the color where I drew a little heart. Okay… I think I just wasted product just doing that. LOL.Anyways, I guess it’ll work well on the corners of my eyes since it’s almost like white. But let’s see. Oh! that chunky watch that you see there is my hub’s early Christmas present. It’s a Nike watch with tons of features, that I don’t even know how to work ’em all. Analog doesn’t seem to work for me anymore. I just totally drained out my two watches this year. Replacement batteries won’t even cut it. I think its caused by my bad habit of washing dishes while wearing my watch. So I guess water-proof is the way to go for me now. Thanks daddy-o!
Second make-up purchase is the eyeshadow quad in “Silver Lining”. Here’s the swatch. Obviously the two light ones can’t be seen on cam, but I assure you it’s there. Have to take this baby for a test drive. I’ll let you know if it’s a good buy at all.
I got me a contour brush from the Courtney Brooke line.I have no idea what that collection is by the way. The bristles are quite firm. I like the easy grip handle. I think this has got to be the longest make-up brush that I now own. I need to learn how to contour though, especially with my double chin making an appearance and my round face getting rounder by the day. Okay note to self: Come 2009, you have to stay away from those darn cupcakes!
Okay this is just a little nifty thing that I picked up at the bazaar. It’s a spoon and fork holder. Exactly what I needed to store my utensils in my office drawer. PHP 50 for this cutie. Comes in blue and pink too!
I highly recommend you check out this bazaar. I think it lasts till the 23rd, if I’m not mistaken. Entrance fee is PHP 50. Good news is they accept credit cards. There’s also a food bazaar at the foyer where the boyfriends or hubbies can wait while you oggle at the loots. Enjoy shopping!
