on the last 2 days in bangkok, i shopped for...A GIVEAWAY!

before the last heave of the loot i found in bangkok and yes, before the giveaway, a few items for sale:
  • an over-sized bag (just the way i like) made with faux black leather. the insides is lined with black faux leather too so it is very durable. it can carry anything and you can even use it as an overnight bag.
  • a couple of printed shirts with cool animal patches. i found this right on the last shopping day. i bought 3 and had to share the other 2 even when i wanted to keep them all. this is perfect for the casual laid-back days that we all have. (admit it, you do have a shirt + shorts + flats day)
For local readers outside Cebu, standard shipping fee is P150. If you purchase more than 2 items, shipping fee is for free. Payment accepted is through PayPal, Gcash or direct deposit to my BPI account.

For Cebu readers, I can do meet-ups or you can pick the item up at Drawingboard. E-mail me so I can give you my mobile number and the directions to the Drawingboard office.

For international readers, standard shipping fee is $15. Payment is accepted only through PayPal.

now on the shopping loot:

i cannot wait to go back and shop shop SHOP! and finally....

for my 314 followers --- for the patience in reading my ramblings and nonsense. for the continued interest in Vanilla Ice Cream. for my new readers and followers. for all of you guys --- a giveaway.

I miss bangkok! I was 12 when i went there, so didn't do much shopping (clothes, shoes, accessories..nadah!) =( I wanna go back!

I'm a follower btw and will be sharing your give away via twitter: artsyava :)

What were your favorite shopping places and restaurants in bangkok?:) and what were your favorite buys?


Super Shaznae said...

followed you in google.. I blogged about you too in my blogger.

Wow! you are so generous to give away such nice items.. And I just want to let you know that as a Cebuana, I am super duper proud of you. My blog may not be about fashion but deep inside of us, in every heart of a Cebuana, lies the true blooded of a fashionista. Keep it up! Prove to the world that Cebuana's like us could compete with the world.

By the way, my question for you is that since you are very passionate about fashion, would you dare enough to wear bright or any neon colors attire? From head to toe everything in neon? And what would your style be?
