Bloggers United #BU9xSMART

Bloggers United: #BU9xSMART
How does one tick an item off of their bucket list? Do you simply cross it out or will you make a diary entry out of it? I'm full on sentimental so diary entries and photos will have to come with little mementos too. I'm happy to announce that I've finally ticked an item off and brought home some souvenirs. Last Saturday marked my very first Bloggers United experience and boy was it epic! Living in Cebu meant having to hop onto a plane which wasn't really feasible at the time. This year however, the stars aligned. Not only did I get to attend but I scored tickets for myself and my sister thanks to a contest hosted by the generous BU team. So pardon the fangirling, the extreme gushing and the humongous photo dump. An epic diary of last week's Bloggers United experience is coming your way! 

For those of you who don't know, Bloggers United is Manila’s first-ever bloggers' bazaar featuring the country's top fashion and beauty digital influencers. It's a place to score great deals, to make new friends, to meet your favorite bloggers and if you're lucky enough, you'll even see them take their #ootds in action! Check this out if you want to know what I mean. *wink*

Since the event called for a denim theme, I brought out my trusty pair of denim shorts. These "bae"-sic piece of clothing is a must for the hot and humid Manila weather. I'm telling you, ice cream and ACs are your best friends in this city.

Smart provided this cute iPhone inspired backdrop for everyone's group shots! I met up with Kay, one of the good friends I've gotten to know through Camille Co's birthday dinner. She was with her younger sister Sandra and I was with my baby sister Rhob. Full on sister act!

iFlix was also present and handed everyone these specially designed canvas bags. Style and function was the name of the game. With all the shopping happening around, these bags really came in handy.

Oh and your eyes aren't fooling you. Those are H&M gift certificates and a smashing GoPro Hero 4 Silver! Lucky readers and attendees got to bring them home for participating in the various games.

I'll be flooding you with photos of the bloggers now. You can exit this tab if you're sick of seeing my face. LOL. Proceed with caution folks!
