I always seem to find something I need whenever I’m at a bookstore. The smell of paper and books, the unli-doodle as I try pens & markers and the knick knacks I discover always prompt me to leave the store not empty handed or at very least happy.
So when my fellow mommas and I were invited to shop at National Bookstore for back-to-school I was one excited parent because I truly enjoy shopping for supplies for my kids.
Rochelle Rivera, Kaycee Enerva, Ava Zabat, Frances Sales, Mika Martinez, Ginger Arboleda, Nikki Tiu, Shari Macainag, Kath Rivera and yours truly all set to shop!
It would usually take a few hours for me to leisurely go around National Book Store but since I veered away from lurking around the book section, I instead shopped for a few minutes as I went around the stationary and school supplies area. I like that its easy to navigate around the store & you can pretty much find what you’re looking for with ease because it’s arranged neatly and categorically.
So this is how I look like when I shop–checking the item so seriously!
Chic gold tote & tumbler from Kate Spade.
Ever since my kids started school, they’ve make it a point to contribute to National Book Store’s Project Aral. A set of notebook and pencils for Php 25 goes to a student who needs it. This is such a lovely project of NBS which my kids & I fully support year after year. Thank you National Book Store for paving way to help underprivileged students. 🙂
Here are some of my back-to-school loot. From basic school supplies, to sanitary & personal hygiene kit for my kids. I got these for them and some for me too! Couldn’t resist me a Kate Spade notebook and the tumbler I plan to give to my best friend!
