Blogging will really take you to places

Sheer top c/o Oxygen | Skirt Thrifted | Boots F-STOPBone ring c/o OS | Necklace Aie Corpuz
Been able to get this  Oxygen  top because of the P3k GCs they gave when I attended their summer preview event.
Paul Jatayna gave me this ring courtesy of OS as an advance Christmas gift. Aaaaw super sweet! 
Got my necklace from Aie's booth during the Bloggers United Bazaar 2

Most of you know Tricia G. right? She's one of the very first bloggers here in the Philippines who has proved that indeed, blogging will really take you to places. From then on, many were inspired to blog as well, wanting to achieve the same opportunities that she had. Even her blog title (Tricia Will Go Places), has indeed been one of her power mantras and oh yeah, she has come a long way since then.

Similarly, Cebu bloggers who participated in the latest Bloggers United Bazaar 2 were able to fly here in Manila for free because of the Bloggers United team's sponsors. I would like to specially mention Multiply Philippines, our most generous sponsor of all, an event partner and major contributor in the event's funding because if it weren't for them, our Cebu blogger friends wouldn't make it here.

The bazaar itself was a busy one and so, we weren't able to bond with our Cebu friends. Despite tremendous exhaustion from the previous day's tiring work, we picked ourselves the day after and had dinner with these awesome group in Borough, Podium, before the fly back to Cebu. They were all so nice and reading each other's blogs seemed like we already know each other beforehand. Ang galing lang. No awkward moments just hours of chatting!

Bloggers United, in our own little way has taken some people to places. Starting from Cebu to Manila. We hope to be able to gather together other bloggers as well (sana dami pang sponsors, haha). Thanks again Multiply Philippines! BTW, if you guys are on a holiday shopping rush and the rainy weather is pissing you off, shop online instead!
