GPB11: Izzo Shop

NOTE:  The Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (GPB11) series is a number of posts regarding merchants and sellers; and their unique and unusual creations, of which I had the utmost pleasure of discovering at Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 (read a short introduction of my bazaar experience here.)  J

I suffer, albeit not officially diagnosed, from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.  Nothing as bad as Adrian Monk's, mind you, but just enough to be able to live in an above average organized world.  I don't mind it as much as I seem to be able to work better and move faster in this state.

My mild case of OCD also extends to my leisure activities.  Take, for instance, my most recent trip to Yabang Pinoy's Global Pinoy Bazaar 2011 last Saturday.  In order to keep on budget and to maximize my time, I actually went through the GPB facebook page and located the sites of the merchants so I could list down possible items I wanted to buy.  And that was were I discovered Izzo Shop.

But it wasn't just the funky name that called my attention.  It was also because of this...

The Sam Camera Bag Insert (large)

I've mentioned in a previous post (read it here) that one of the things I hate most about DLSR bags is the lack of design choices.  Most are black and just screams out to thieves.  Not good. 

And although I was able to locate and purchase my beloved aha DSLR camera bag (read my review here), there are still times when I want to use an ordinary everyday bag instead.

Thankfully, Izzo Shop answered my prayers with their Sam Camera Bag Insert.


Retailing at only Php295, this fully padded insert provides the perfect cushion for your beloved, and expensive, DSLR cameras.  With this nifty container, you can easily convert any regular bag to fit your cameras.  So convenient and definitely a cheaper alternative than buying those expensive made-for-DSLRs only bags.

And look just how it cradles my beloved Big Blackie (yes, I sometimes name my stuff.  I'm that weird.  Hehehe!  J)  With room to spare for other accessories.


Aside from the Sam Camera Bag Insert, I'm also lusting after these (photos taken from the Izzo Shop website)...

Dominique Travel Cam Bag (Php895)

Passport case (Php130)

But alas!  Budgetary limits restrain me from going loco and buying them all in one drop.  Maybe next time.   J

  2. i like the colors of passport cases and the travel cam bag is so cute.

  3. @Janelle: Sis, all products are from Izzo shop. =)

    @michi: Nice, right? Maybe next month... *sigh*

  4. Love that camera bag insert sis! I actually need one too, since I always end up putting Candice (my slr) inside my everyday bag. And it hurts me to see her having some scratches.. >.<

    I think I'll check Izzo Shop's site now.. Thanks for sharing this! :)

  5. @Sumi Go: Scartches are ok as long it's not on the lenses. Yikes! But the sam cam insert is really heaven-sent. I'll be going back to SG soon and I plan to just use my Hello lulu laptop bag with this insert for my cam as carry only luggage. Mahirap na kasi e. =D

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
