Today’s post is abut the Bloggers United 7 which I attended with my dad. He tagged along to see what I did and all the events I was telling him about which I go to for my bog sounded like fun for him so he came and we got to spend the day together. It was at the Metrotent where we have never been before nor have we ever been in that area so it was nice to explore and even though we got lost a little getting there it was still a fun road trip trying to get here. This is the first one I have ever been to and I know I have seen it before as I was first started out I somehow came across this event but never went because I was in school or busy but I heard about it. I was planning on going but then I changed my mind but a few nights before my favorite fashion blogger’s, The Plump Pinay were giving away free tickets and I decided to try my luck and I won! They picked me and I was so grateful they did because it gave me a chance to meet up with them again. I told my dad about it and he thought that was great and wanted to come with me so we ended up going together. I was so close to not going but I’m glad I did. I didn’t know what the event was about but it looked exciting and I soon discovered what it was. Here were my thoughts about it and a little bit about my experience at my first Bloggers United 7: A Summer Fair!
The registration area is where we stopped in first of course and since I was added to a guest list I didn’t have to pay the 100php entrance fee of you could of bought a Sunsilk pack to get in as well. I got to bring one person and so my dad tagged along for the first time as I said and he was taking pictures of everything as well and making everyone at the booths smile for his picture. it was very funny and I said he should blog about it but he just wants it for his facebook which is what he did it for.
There were so many booths and things to look at like clothes, beauty stuff, magazines and so many other stuff you just want to pick up and I thought it was so cool. It was my mistake not knowing what the event was and I was sad I didn’t bring any cash or save any up to get some products I really wanted to try but didn’t know they would have. Some things I wanted was Bioderma, Urban Decay Products, imported nail polish and some Japanese makeup that looked so cute. I wanted to splurge but maybe next time I will and I know what to expect. There was all kinds of things to browse and my dad was interested in looking as well because it wasn’t all girly stuff and there was different booths as you can see to choose from. I loved that I got some photo booth pictures which I always forget to take pictures of for here but they are all so cute and I got a Polaroid picture from the Polaroid booth with their giant Instax camera that I am planning on buying one of these day. My dad even joined the fun and we look some goofy pictures ourselves and here was amazed that they were free he thought I had to pay for each one because he was talking to the photographer guy and he thought you pay for each one. I thought it was hilarious because I have gone to many events where they are free but now he knows if he goes to another one. It was lovely exploring each booth together to see what was up.
I won a prize from Nescafe Philippines since they had a booth there and I entered their contest through instagram and I won and was so shocked. I was in the middle of talking to someone and I heard my username and started running to the stage as I was on the other end but I made it. I wish my dad would have snapped a picture for me but he couldn’t catch up but they took a picture for me but I have no idea where to find it. My dad won as well but we left a few minutes after it was announced which was sad and it would have been nice but it is okay maybe next time. I won a gift pack of free coffee and a gift certificate to a restaurant that I forgot to take a picture of but because my dad loved it he took it home and drank most of it because he liked it that much. The picture of us drinking coffee together (well only him since I don’t drink coffee very much) is on my instagram @fashionxfairytale if you want to see my winning entry. It was very fun and I honestly couldn’t believe I won even though I heard my username I was like who stole my name that is mine but then it was mine. Really cool experience for me and my dad thought it was great as well.
The reason I had to come was none other than catching up with my two favorite fashion bloggers that I met before at the BDJ Rendezvous. As I said I was picked one of their guest to attend this event and it made me want to go even more so I did and I’m glad I did and it was nice to hang out and chat a bit longer with both of them at their booth. My dad even got to meet them and have a talk together and it was very nice to just hang out and get to know more about them as I am new to the area and to the events. It was definitely a highlight for me out of the whole trip.
Of course I got a picture with them again and it was so nice getting to have a conversation and hang out with them this tie instead of last time where they had to go shortly after their talk at the BDJ Rendezvous. They are so inspiring and I got to learn more about them and talk fashion, beauty and some personal life and I’m really thankful how friendly and sweet these ladies are and I hope to go far and I’m most excited for their fashion line they are doing to come out because I love their sense of style so I’m sure their pieces will be perfect for a plus size fashionista like myself. Thanks again for inviting me and picking me to come to this event as it was very exciting to experience this for the first time
Here is my dad and I before we left. We took a picture in front together with the welcome balloons before we left for the day. I’m glad he decided to come with me because he was so curious about going to one and I’m glad this wasn’t too much of beauty and fashion type of event which I’m used to going to like workshops and product launches so this was perfect and I’m glad it worked out and we went together because he was really amazed and even though he didn’t understand you can get some stuff free here was truly amazed at that and wants to attend more with me in the future. It was nice spending the day with him and going out to discover new things together. Our photo booth pictures are the coolest but I forgot to take a picture of them for here but they are so cool and definitely getting framed.
And another sneak peek of my outfit which I will have the full outfit details post coming on Friday but for now again here is what I wore and isn’t it cute I match the balloons and the event. I did not plan that but it just turned out that way and I was feeling very bright even if it was an overcast but very warm day.
I hope you enjoyed my post about my first Bloggers United event and I was so happy I got invited and got to meet up with two of my favorite fashion bloggers and to hang out with them. I had a fun time and cannot wait for number 8 and this time I know to bring some extra cash to pick up some deals and do some shopping. Thanks again for inviting me Plump Pinay and thanks for the experience Bloggers United 7. My dad and I appreciated it and had fun spending the day together.
