As much as I am fond of giving away stuff on this page, you may have also noticed that I join online giveaways that I like and would be useful if I won. With that, I also love involving my kids. Aside from getting items at no cost if you get lucky, it’s also fun and rewarding.

Anello Bag Winners

Last Friday, 13 September, SM City Olongapo Central has opened its doors to the public, and a few stores participated in their own ways by giving discounted offers and hosting online giveaways. My dear follower, Mommy Love Fullido Compoc sent me the link of Official Anello Philippines‘ ongoing online contest and let my daughter, Deye, entered. The usual like and share of a post, and a simple question to be answered to “Why do you deserve to win a bag?’ sort of thing.


Fast forward, on the last day of the giveaway itself, a message on IG popped up and yes, she won an Anello bag! She was one of the 5 lucky winners!

Despite the expected crowd, we headed to SM City Olongapo Central yesterday to claim the prize, as instructed. We were surprised that we got to choose the bag that we like/prefer, except for the newest arrivals. We initially picked the typical school bag backpack but thought that well, it’s too typical, so with my convincing power, we ended up with the classic faux leather backpack.

Classic never goes out of style, you know. The bag is spacious enough to carry books and other stuff if she wants to use it for school, and safe enough to carry a laptop and personal effects when I/we travel (Yes, made a deal with her already “Pahiram si Mama ha?” Hahaha!)

Just in time, we will be traveling in November and this bag is just perfect to use all throughout. She loves blue so we settled for blue with a beige combination.


The main compartment is spacious with closure on top, and another access/closure from the back for easy access.

Handles are as usual adjustable. It also has a front small compartment for a few little items to carry. This bag retails Php3,150.

For its price, and being a kuripot mom like me, it’ll take me forever to decide to buy something costly like this one hahaha!

Thank you Anello for this bag! We love it so much!
