Bazaar season is in full swing for the holiday season, but if there's one bazaar you must make time for in your shopping sked, it's this one!
The Global Pinoy Bazaar is unique in that it only showcases proudly Pinoy designed and made products. Everything from ladies', men's, and children's apparel, accessories, jewelry, bags and shoes, beachwear, travel accessories, home décor, home and wellness products, as well as Filipino art and design will be retailed during the bazaar. I'm pretty sure you'll not only find unique goodies to give as Christmas presents, you'll manage to take home a few finds for yourself!
That's exactly what happened when I attended the Global Pinoy Media Night. I was so impressed with the brands and products on display that I ended up shopping and taking home a few pieces. It's hard not to, especially after the brilliant minds behind the Pinoy brands took to the stage to explain the story behind and their vision for their respective companies. Needless to say I was truly proud and inspired to be Pinoy during that night. And I'm pretty sure you'll feel the same if you attend the bazaar.

|At the media event, there was a whole display of Messy Bessy products. Love! I noticed that Messy Bessy seems to have reduced their prices (can anybody confirm this?). So now, I love buying Messy Bessy! I bought this Odor Absorber for P250, and placed one in my car and another in my closet. Each pack has three pieces. Photo courtesy of Messy Bessy.|
|I also bought laundry detergent from Messy Bessy. Pat has sensitive skin, so I always try to buy natural laundry soap or laundry wash that's for baby skin. This fit the bill and at P300 for 2kg, it's almost the same price as your supermarket variety detergent powder. Photo courtesy of Messy Bessy.|
|I also bought these Abaca Bands from Yabang Pinoy. P50 lang! Sama mo na sa arm party mo!|
