Vanilla Cupcake Bakery

The moment I saw Vanilla Cupcake Bakery inside Glorietta, I immediately fell in love with the place because this quaint little pastry shop looks so pretty and girly! So I was extra-happy when I found out that they have a branch in Trinoma (inside Kamiseta). Since my best college buds (Dhebz and Lya) and I need to do some catching up, I suggested that we go to VCB. Their Trinoma branch is small since it's located inside a store but still has a warm and comfy feel.

The chairs make you feel like a princess. I found out that they were designed by Daphne OseƱa Paez.

There's a wide selection of cupcakes and cookies that will surely satisfy your sweeth tooth cravings.

What we ordered:

Banoffee cupcake P95
Chocolate Nutella cupcake P85

Tiramisu cupcake P150
The cupcakes were delicious! When you take a bite, it is rich and moist and flavorful in your mouth. Based from how they taste, for me the cupcakes are reasonably priced. :) I especially love the Banoffee cupcake. It has layers of graham crust, bananas, cream and caramel oozing with sweet goodness. We had a great time enjoying the food and our endless chatter that we stayed there for more than an hour! I blame it to their comfortable chairs and relaxing ambiance. Hehe Now my friends and I officially found our feel-good-catching-up place. :)

Belle de Jour afternoon.

It's been a long time since I last attended an event and I have to be honest that I missed it. So when my blogger friend, Josephine Arce invited me to her event under When In Manila.. I did not hesitate to go specially when I've known that the event is held by Belle de Jour. Belle De Jour planner has long been one of my favorite because of its uniqueness and how artistic every page is. Personally, it is not only an average planner for me. Belle de Jour is designed to empower women. Various pages has its "to-do list" that will surely make you busy all year.. plus discount coupons from different stores and restaurants too! What a steal right? :)

The event is held in Mall of Asia Ground floor Atrium. Jo, Bea and I were all excited to get prettified that afternoon.

Here are some of the activities.

Some of the booths that's bound to prettify us girls. :)

We also attended the 3pm talk about getting fit and fab by Bam Mogato.

We also got loot bags and have our photo taken at the glam booth. :)

It's a given that girls love being pampered and prettified. the three of us had a glamorous afternoon! :) Plus with the loot bags that we got, it's already a bonus. :) And yeaaaa, my love for Belle de jour never faltered. :)
