Remember my post about my new breastpump bag? Well...guess what? Ms. Cecile, the owner of Naraya Philippines, read it and invited me to a store tour last week. They currently have branches in Robinson's Ermita and SM North Edsa. I chose to visit the latter because it's nearer from where I reside.
It's my first time to visit the store. Liz was right! The store might be intimidating at first because of its swank interior. Some people like me won't even bother to go inside a store that appears to be expensive. But when I got the chance to scan all their items, I was surprised at how affordable their bags are. The highest price tag was I saw was P1500++.
I got even more delighted when I saw the dainty designs currently available at their store. Each design comes with different types of bag: coin purse, wallet, tissue holder, cosmetic bag...etc. It was nice to know that I could purchase something to match with my breastpump bag from Naraya. Check out the my product shots below:
Silver checkered design
Purple checkered is one of their best sellers. When Ms. Cecile asked me to chose a bag as her gift, I was eyeing for this! It was really hard to pick one from all the lovely designs. I told her that I wanted a huge bag I can use for my makeup and hairstyling gigs and as a baby bag as well. After minutes of deliberating, I pointed on the biggest gold checkered bag which can carry up to 10 - 12 kgs. Perfect for my makeup gigs as it matches the gold bag of my lighted mirror. It can be a chic mommy bag too ***teehee ***. This bag is also made from water-proof materials so all my beloved tools and baby stuff are surely protected. I've already tested it last Friday when I was asked by Mr. Jeave Gabiana and Stef of HD Makeup Studio and Academy to do the hair of the models for the Airbrush Makeup Class Graduation.
Nice noh? I didn't know you could pull off the bow.
Stef told me that when she was in Thailand, she got curious when she saw a store full of people. It was Naraya! It's not surprising. The Naraya bags I own are made of high quality materials and obviously done meticulously. They're very affordable too.
This bag was able to carry 1 blowdryer, 1 curling iron, 1 flat iron, 1 bottle of alcohol, 50 pcs of rollers, 2 cans of hairsprays, 1 can of styling mouse, gel, clips, pins, diffent types of combs....and a few more I forgot to type haha and it's still in perfect condition.
Ms. Cecile also ask me to pick one small bag that could match with the one I chose. I selected the cosmetic purse with mirror.
The things I need for retouch fit perfectly. Kabuki brushes, mineral foundation and blush, lipstick and eyebrow pencil.
This sling bag has been in my dreams for days now. This is the highest priced item in the store I told you above. If I remember correctly, it's P1,595. I wanted to have something like this where I could put all the makeups I need for retouching whenever I have wedding makeup gigs. Uhumm...I hope my hubby reads this post. You know what to give me this Christmas haha!
Naraya has items starting from P200 above. Perfect gift for my girls :) I'm glad their offering free gift wrapping now.
Of course, I wouldn't leave the store without asking for a photo with Ms. Cecile. Thank you so much for being so nice and for the early Christmas present too.
I would like to thank Paul of PMP Communications!
What do you think of my new Naraya bag? :D
