I have to admit I am an overbuyer. Regardless if I need it or not, I shop and look for things. The internet is a dark place, you can get sucked in the minute you get distracted. However, I found some great finds lately and I am proud to say that they are local brands. These are the ones that thrive via online shops and bazaars. I am a fan and inspired by some of their stories. I got to ask them questions due to my inquiries. They are accommodating to queries which I think is very crucial especially for online transactions.
I’m pretty sure you are now curious with the list so here’s a rundown:
Shiq Bag (@shiqbags)
This brand is inspired by the femininity, combining classic and modern styles. Their bags are of style and function. There I was looking for a bag that can fit my laptop and I came across the Amber tote. It’s waterproof and can fit my laptop. Well, not actually. It is 13″ so the size of the bag is quite exact. Plus points to Shiq for customized bags. Just add P50 for every letter. It’s the best bag I use when I need errands to do since it seemed small but it can fit a lot.

I actually forgot how I found this brand. What got me hooked is the actual bag which can fit a laptop. This time, it’s for real! My order took some time since it still needs to be produced but it was all worth it. I got to buy a wallet to match with it too! It’s amazing as it is perfect for travel because my passport perfectly fits. This bag can be worn 4 different ways: crossbody, shoulder bag, hand bag and backpack. Definitely handy!
Obsession Without Limits (@obsessionswithoutlimits)
My fondness for crystal necklace stemmed from a Christmas gift from my former boss a few Christmases ago. I kept searching on how to create my own but instead stumbled on this. I love their Prescripstone line since the crystals have meanings perfect each personality need. Every piece is unique as the stones are shaped differently. Another plus is that it is tarnish free. Of course, you need to properly take care of it.

Needless to say, I did a whole blog post about it. See link: Head over Heels. I love how comfortable it is! They have a unique design for flats. Their chunky mid heels is pure love too! This brand is now a staple in my shoe closet.
Hey Jow (@heyjowph)
I love this brand and their different collaborations. The designs are unique and classy. It is fit for someone who wants to upgrade their accessory line. Their products are nicely packaged in a box. I got giddy when I received mine. Hey Jow is a piece that I love wearing if I want to amp up my outfit. A little pricey but the quality is superb perfect for special occasions.
