Bloggers United 6 at the 13th World Bazaar Festival

When a group of top fashion bloggers unite for the country’s grandest holiday bazaar, one can expect nothing but a shopping experience that is more fun, engaging, and personal, as evidenced by the recent successes of blogger bazaars in the country.

This year, the 13th World Bazaar Festival (WBF), running from December 6 to 22 at the World Trade Center and undoubtedly, the country’s biggest and most- awaited Christmas charity shopping event, proves this true as it once again partners with Bloggers United 6, a team that showcases the country’s top entrepreneur bloggers, on December 7 at the World Trade Center (WTC) in Pasay City.

“The thing that makes Blogger Bazaars special is the experience it gives to our shoppers. This is why we invited Bloggers United back for the 13th installment of World Bazaar Festival,” said JR Ang, marketing director of leading events organizer Worldbex Services International.

He added, “The event will bridge influential bloggers with their loyal readers and blog friends, so expect hours and hours of picture taking, bonding, and shopping in a wide array of fashionable items and collectibles.”

The event, which will occupy the second floor of WTC, will serve as the 6th official installment of Bloggers United and will feature fashion royalties in the blogosphere, including the likes of Divine Lee, Camille Co, Laureen Uy, Kryz Uy, Maggie Wilson and Dani Barretto, among others.

Founded in 2011, Bloggers United has continuously influenced the online Filipino community through its efforts of promoting beauty, fashion, and style through a series of bloggers bazaar in Metro Manila.

With its recent collaboration with World Bazaar Festival, “Bloggers United” is expected to gain bigger audience and market share, while giving back to the community, as part of the proceeds of WBF will be donated to ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc.

Bloggers United 6 is a pocket event of the 13th World Bazaar Festival. The bazaar will run from December 6 to 22 at the World Trade Center for the benefit of the ABS CBN Foundation Inc. Doors open from 12nn to 10pm Monday to Thursday and 10am to 12mn Friday to Sunday. For more information, follow its Instagram page @worldbazaar for ticket giveaways and updates.

Photo Lab Now Open In Team Manila SM North EDSA

I've been fond of Lomography since 2008. My very first Lomo camera back then was a CMYK Holga CFN that I was able to buy using the profits of shutter shades (They were trendy back then! Don't judge.) that I sold to my classmates when I was in college.

Fast forward to 2013, I am still very fond of Lomography. To date, I now own six Lomo cameras. It's supposed to be seven but I lost my Diana F+. I know, I'm very careless. :(

As much as I love taking photos with my Lomo cams, there's one thing that is very time consuming to do--developing my films. Since 2008, I've been going to Quiapo just to have my Lomo films developed and it could be really a hassle to do.

Well, not anymore! My Quiapo days are over. Team Manila in partnership with Digiprint has come up with Photo Lab and they are now open in Team Manila at TriNoMa and SM North EDSA!

With Photo Lab now open, developing your films will be a cinch!

Always remember, Shoot Lang Nang Shoot!
