Wedding Gown for Rent + Giveaway

Hi merfriends! 😀

I hope you’re all having a great weekend! 😀

I have been very busy with Versaheel, and some speaking engagements, so I barely had time to blog. But goodie, I have now!

Two months ago, I uploaded my very first vlog, and it’s about my amazing collaboration with Gown for Rent.

Gown for Rent is a sustainable and eco-friendly gown and accessory rental shop located in Quezon City, Metro Manila.

I actually knew about them when I was in search for a gown for last year’s Christmas Party. My then company will hold two parties on the same day, meaning, I have to change twice.

Of course, I don’t have the time to wait for a custom dress, let alone spend big amounts of money to wear one for only 4 hours, so I opted to look for gown rentals such as theirs.

Little did I know, my blog will soon be collaborating with them! I was actually in love with the Tala Gown when I saw it on their website. I envisioned that I will probably be wearing something like this when I finally walk down the aisle.

I love how simple it is! I was enamored by beads and mesh way back 2010, and I’m sure a lot of brides and bride-to-bes appreciate that sort of design.

Fast-forward to 7 years after, trends started to influence me more, so I’d rather wear more textured dresses than beaded ones.

No wonder, this is the first gown I chose to wear for the photoshoot! It was surreal! I felt like I was meeting a celebrity! Haha 😀 I only got to see it on the site, that is why shivers of glee took over when I finally got to wear it!

Since I finally had the time to post this awesome collab, I am throwing in something more!

Up to 75% off!

Bride-to-bes, maid of honors, bridesmaids and merfriends who would like to have this gown worn by their soon-to-be bride friends, this is your chance to slash a big amount of expense!

Here’s Your Chance to Win A Trip To Maldives

15032730_1178977425484983_2089190030319236802_n

OMG! OMG! OMG! I have studied about Maldives way back in college in our Asian  Civilization subject, and I was literally left breathless with all its splendor! Unpopular to some, but Maldives is considered one of the best, if not THE best summer destination in the world! Their “islands” are actually atolls, hardened corals, and I am wondering how it must feel to atoll-hop! 😀

If you have checked prices and packages of going to this dream destination, it may make our hearts sink because it’s particularly expensive! BUT, good news! Nailaholics may just make your dreams and mine come true!

15073385_1178977415484984_5279528427018696485_n

Walk into any Nailaholics branch and you are immediately ushered into a different world. The world quiets down, even for just a few hours, as you settle into the canopied seats. The gentle buzz behind its doors are reminiscent of the placid flurry typicaly found in beachside destinations. The colors evoke the calm of being beside the ocean.

Now, stepping inside a Nailaholics branch doesn’t just welcome you into a world of pampering, you’re actually taking your first step towards the Maldives; a destination recognized as this year’s best spa destination by industry, known for its clear, cobalt waters, hugged by a stretches of fine, delicate sand.

“Perhaps no other coastal destination has been so closely associated with the concept of relaxation,” says Glaiza Agbayani, Digital Manager  “This is why we chose Maldives as the perfect holiday treat for our loyal customers.”

From November 10 to January 27, availing of any of the Nailaholics package services will entitile customers to one raffle entry for the chance to win a trip for two to the Maldives.

Entitled Holiday Flyaway, the lucky winner will enjoy a four-day, three-night stay at the Maldives and indulge in the very elements that inspired the experience and aesthetic behind Nailaholics.

Visit Nailaholics as often as you can during the promo period to get more chances of winning. There’s no better reason to keep heading back to your nearest branch for me-time.

Now that the Christmas season and the cold weather is gracing our usual and uttermost just-trying-to-get-by days, I decided to be extra cheery and generous by throwing a giveaway! Yay! 🙂

But if this is not your size, don’t worry, you can still win and pass on the love to someone dear to you who may show you the biggest smile once you hand her this! 😃

Anyway, the other prize is from Everyware PH! It’s a wallet with the word MERMAID pressed on it (valued at P379). Actually, Everyware PH is my boyfriend and I’s brainchild.
