5 Home Decor Stores: Negros Trade Fair 2017

I can still remember going to the Negros Trade Fair as a kid with my mom. My mom would buy me those smocked dresses but I was actually looking forward to the Bacolod delicacies. My dad by the way grew up in Bacolod.
Now, aside from the Bacolod delicacies I also look forward to check out the home decor stores as I am into interior styling.  I saw a few home decor stores that caught my attention at this year’s Negros Trade Fair held at the Glorietta Activity Center last September 27- October 1. I have to confess though that my first two stops were Felicia’s ensaymadas and Virgie’s napoleones!

It was a breath of fresh air to see home styling vignettes at the fifth floor of SM Makati during my recent visit at their home section.

For this year, MaArte Fair is going to be at the Peninsula Manila on August 11-13, 2017.

5 Things I Loved About Our Glamp Site

I’m lucky to have found friends who wanted to try glamping with me.  It’s been on my list of things to experience for quite some time now.  I found the perfect glamp site in Nayomi Sanctuary Resort in Balete, Batangas.  It was an easy breezy trip that took less than an hour to reach the resort (thanks to the SLEX and Star Tollway connection).

MaArte Bazaar Fave Finds

Last Friday I visited the MaArte Bazaar (for the first time!) at 8 Rockwell.  There were three home furniture and decor companies that I really loved.  I want their pieces to be part of my home!

I’m such a big fan of bar carts and daybeds!  So when I saw their bar carts, I couldn’t get over them!  I first saw their booth at ArtifactPH in Alabang Town Center last July and I loved their daybed!
