A bigger and better Blogapalooza happened last October 11, 2014 at SMX Convention Center, SM Aura. The event was originally scheduled to take place last Sept. 20, but the organizers were forced to cancel and move it to a later date due to bad weather caused by Typhoon Mario. And because they moved it to October 11, I didn't have to think about my birthday plans anymore (yup, October 11 is my birthday. lol). Haha! Spent my entire afternoon talking to different brands and meeting fellow bloggers.
It was a well-attended event and compared to last year's Blogapalooza, this one is more organized. The place is bigger, making it easier for us (bloggers) to navigate around the area as we jump from one booth to another.

Ace Water Spa
For those who are not familiar with Blogapalooza, it is a business to blogger networking event. It is a community where in businesses can present/share their products/services to people who love sharing stuff online aka bloggers. About 700 bloggers and around 30 different businesses signed up for this event. I didn't visit all the booths, though, because I only chose those brands related to fashion and lifestyle (my blog's niche).
The brands prepared a lot of giveaways, games and online activities for the bloggers. Here I am with fellow blogger, Shekinah, posing at the Ace Water Spa booth as we receive our gift certificates (this is not the actual gc, of course. lol).

Authority Hoodie (ah!)
We passed by this booth twice because we want to try their game, but no one was there to assist us. Too bad. I was interested to know how to score those hoodies.
I had fun watching people dance at the Ideal Vision booth. I could've tried, too, but I was wearing a mini skirt and I don't want to embarrass myself. Waha

There were also inspiring talks about blogging and social media. Here is Michelle Gumabao sharing about how she managed to surpass all the hating and bashing which is very common in social networking sites.
Another cute booth! I have tried Sample Room a couple of times before already (got my 2 favorite lipsticks from them) and I love their products. Visit their website and try it, too! :)
Slenda / Natural Quality Corp.
House of Lasagna
Snacks c/o House of Lasagna and Yellow Cab! These guys from Yellow Cab are so camera-ready! Ang kukulit! Haha
Finally, my photo with The Blondies! Lol My Blogapalooza experience wouldn't be so fun if not for these two. Actually, it was around this time of the year too when I first met them during the Wacoal event last October 2013. Do you still remember that, Sheki and Tin? Haha Anniversary pala natin e. LOL But seriously, thanks for the company and the birthday gift! Till next time! :*
Thank you and congratulations, Blogapalooza, for another successful event! Looking forward to the next one! :)
P.S. What do you think about my Blogapalooza/ birthday outfit, guys? Haha Blogging about it soon!
