When In Manila and wanting to meet your favorite fashion bloggers while scoring great deals on fashionable finds, Bloggers United is an event you shouldn’t miss!
I’ve been meaning to attend Bloggers United but I was living at Batangas when the first two installments took place so I just read about it through the attendees’ blog posts post-event. Imagine how happy I was when it was announced at the Bloggers United’s Facebook page that the third installment’s venue will be at Makati. I knew I can’t miss Bloggers United this time!
Last June 2, 2012, Grandview Events Place was overflowing with many of the metro’s stylish people because of Bloggers United Summer Bazaar 2012! I went there with my friend Vey to score some fashionable and affordable finds from my favorite fashion bloggers!
We arrived at around 11:30 AM and the line was down at the second floor! The event was held at the third floor so by that I think you can imagine how many people were there so early to get in.
So many people at Bloggers United Summer Bazaar 2012!
The bloggers really put effort in making their signages for their booths!
Tin Iglesias illustrated this. Cool!
David Guison and Lissa Kahayon had matching booth adornments. How cute.
I went there to score some shoes and accessories. Most of the bloggers were a size 5,6, or 7. I was going around and around the stalls and finally I found Kookie Buhain‘s spot. We have the same shoe size which is 9! Her shoes were so edgy and I instantly fell in love with the red So Fab! boots that I immediately tried it on. It was the perfect fit! I bought it and took off my purple pump because my feet needed a break. Too bad I haven’t been to the first two installments of Bloggers United, I could have scored more fierce shoes at a low price!

What’s more fulfilling other than getting great deals at Bloggers United is they partner up with a chosen organization which they give their proceeds to. This year, they have partnered with Operation Smile so every item you buy from Bloggers United is also a help to kids in need.
After buying the shoes, I was happily browsing around the other stuff sold by the bloggers. I wish our malls sold stuff like these! We’d be in fashion wonderland.
Those neon things are bracelets. Fierce!
Super sweet deal right here at Bloggers United!
The boys got to do some shopping too.
Loved this mannequin display at Danika Navarro‘s booth
Aside from shopping, there were lots of other things to do at Blogger United!

Shopping, shopping, shopping at Bloggers United!
Her shoes and socks were the bomb!
Also got to see some of our friends and schoolmates before! Funny thing was Andy was with Hannah and when she introduced her to me, I thought I have heard her name somewhere. Turns out she was the Hannah Magsayo who was a photographer at Stache Magazine Online and I was a writer there before. She was at Manila for the weekend and she flew in from Davao! Small world! Bloggers United was one of her stops for the weekend.

Vey bumped to her friend Anne Garais. She came all the way from Batangas!
It wouldn’t be Bloggers United without the gorgeous and fashionable beauty and fashion bloggers gracing the event. The shoppers were all over the place and having their photographs taken with the bloggers.
Most of these bloggers have had many opportunities in endorsements, blog sponsors,and television and print features but they were so nice and accommodating of everyone at Bloggers United. No wonder all these successes have come their way. Some have been sellers since the first Bloggers United but others have only started joining in this installment.
Here are some of the bloggers I spotted at Bloggers United:
Ava Te (which I bought two books from) and Reg Rodriguez
The edgy Tin Iglesias
Gondo Girls Valerie Chua and Marj Sia
Seph Cham (half of Love Chic) and Crissey Si

Also loved what Patricia Prieto was wearing
Laureen Uy‘s heel-less shoes were to die for, but it’s not seen in this photo.
Camille Co looked like a walking Barbie doll!
Gelo Arucan. Check out his pins. It says “So Fashyon, Lissa Kahayon” and “You Turn Me On, David Guison.” How witty!
Ana Gonzales (one of the organizers of Bloggers United) and Kelly Medina still looking fabulous despite having event duties!
It was a day of fun, fashion, shopping, and interacting with fellow bloggers at Bloggers United! I know I’ll be there on the next one.
