I can’t believe I haven’t even written about the story of the DAPHNE® & National Book Store collaboration yet and the products are over halfway sold already. I’m sort of in a panic because I actually want to hoard as much of these products as I could. They make the perfect gifts. And I love using them myself. Now that I said that, I will try to troop to National Book Store tomorrow and try to stock up on my favourites (all).

Meanwhile, as promised,  I’m sharing with you some of the photos by friends, followers and readers who have posted with the hashtag #DaphneandNBS. I remember doing this when the DAPHNE x Bench Home Scents came out and many of you posted your unboxing and use of the bottle. I looooved that! And now you are doing the same with the Daphne & National Book Store stationery.

Thank you for sharing a bit of your world with me. I love seeing how you use my products. Yay to Daphnefication. Haha. Keep them coming!

    Great photos! My favourite is the “Daphne-fied” little girl. So adorable. 🙂 I love the whole Daphne&NBS collections. After getting loads of them (thanks to my sweetest and kindest cousin, Lynn Syliangco) I’ve asked my sis-in law to get me some more stuff. Like you said, they make the perfect gifts. Interesting enough, I was at the Philippine Embassy a few weeks ago and a handful of ladies there have noticed my Daphne bag and they asked where I got it from (they could care less about my cute little Chanel bag which no one ever noticed haha). Anyways, I decided that my girl friends in London will get some of Daphne&NBS collections on their birthday this year. And yes, I am so flattered that I’ve been included. Thank you, Daphne. 😉

        Actually Daphne, the first week I had my Daphne bag I went to Cath Kidston Portobello Road (going to Portobello Market is part of my weekend jaunts) and there was an English lady who approached me just as I was heading out the door. She asked me if my bag was Cath Kidston or Caroline Gardner’s. When I showed her the Daphne logo and told her about you and your NBS collections she said, “oh, I would not have thought your bag was from the Philippines. I love the print.” She told me that one of her friends has a Filipino nanny and that she will ask her to get her a Daphne bag and some of your NBS collections. I regret not getting her contact details. I should have asked for her email or mobile. Anyhow, next time I know what to do…I’ll give them your email and/or website. 🙂

    hi! ms daphne, i just want to share my experience kanina sa nbs sm north. i ask the staff kung saan yung mga items na daphne, tinatanung po nila kung anu daw yun. sabi ko iba-iba kasi yun may bags, may pouch, may ballpen and book organizer, etc. tinuro po ko sa isang staff tingnan ko sa bag section kung may brand na ganun, sa mga pouch naman da po sa kids section, then tinuro ako sa iba-ibang staff di po talaga nila alam ying brand nio. sabi ko bakit po sa ibang nbs nasa isang lugar lang yun dapne sama-sama. saka bakit di nila alam. tinuro ako sa gift wrapping daw po ako magtanung. until nakita ko yun customer service duon po ako nagtanung, saka lang ako nasagot ng makita sa record nila yin brand nio.

      Sorry to hear that. I will let NBS know.

      This line was launched in January. So by now not all products are available. They did well on the very first month. Thanks.

      oh! that’s explains why. I was at Glorietta branch last week, and true enough, I was only able to get the journal and pens 🙁
