Just a few snaps from the wonderfully packed weekend. Friday, I was able to go the Brown Bag Vintage & Crafts Market, where I finally met Mikka of A Mischmashed Life whose blog I’ve been following for quite some time now. Even better, I got first dibs (and a discount too!) on the latest pieces from Carioca, a line of kimonos and caftans that she started with her sister (read about it here). I got the Caravelas kimono in cotton fabric in my favorite animal print pattern and another one in silk fabric with a surprisingly gorgeous stripes print.
I also came across other serendipitous finds at the bazaar, like cat-eye vintage Italian shades and handmade leather and fabric bracelets (so perfect for arm parties!). Another favorite fab find of mine was Alunsina Handbound Books, where I scored a fully handmade journal with genuine cowhide leather only at P500! I still open the journal from time to time just to savor the wonderful smell of the leather :).
Then dinner at Ayala Triangle Gardens with Ashley and S., who work near the area (and I was so engrossed with our chismis/ conversation that I forgot to take a picture!) Then it was off to Midnight Mercato at BGC, where I went on a food trip while welcoming a friend’s birthday.
Saturday, I treated myself to lunch at Mamou in Serendra, where I remembered why their Lorenzo’s Truffle Cream pasta is my favorite and of course, why their Angus Ribeye steak is one of the best in the city. Then the meal was capped off with Mamou’s key lime pie (but eaten at Cafe Mary Grace, one of my favorite places for coffee).
Sunday was spent enjoying the rainy day at home, in pajamas for most of the whole day and a good book. It was a wonderful weekend. Hope you all had a good one too! 🙂
