Day of Hearts Giveaway: I Love Koi Swimwear

We at Bride and Breakfast love celebrating love, especially when it’s recognized as a national holiday! It’s that time of the year again when men go the extra mile to get creative and romance their ladies, whether in small or grand sweet gestures. Just this morning a friend shared about a handmade Valentine card he designed for his girl, and it’s just the kind of thing that makes us oh-so-weak in the knees (and I must admit I got a little jealous)! There’s so much love in the air and I’m sure you’ve got your own story to tell.

On top of all the V-day tales, have we got a great surprise for you! Since we are crazy about Valentine’s Day and equally crazy about you, we have partnered with I Love Koi for an exciting giveaway. We are treating you to a bikini or cover-up of your choice!* I Love Koi celebrates all kinds of women and has a wide range of designs and silhouettes that will flatter all kinds of body types. (Pretty amazing, huh?) There are so many styles to choose from, but our personal fave is this polka dot and hearts bikini! On this day of hearts, we want to give one lucky lady a sweet little something to wear on a romantic getaway with her man!

Okay, so here’s how you can win:

  1. Click the Facebook LIKE button at the bottom of this post.
  2. Go to our Facebook page and SHARE the picture that we’ll post about this giveaway.
  3. Write “Liked, shared, and ready for summer lovin’!” in the comments section of this post.

Enjoy our sweet sunny treat!

*The size range of bikinis is XS to M, and the size range of high-waisted pieces and maillots is XS to XL (up to XXXL on selected styles).


This giveaway ended on February 18, 2013. Congratulations to Shei Fuertez-Canoza!

Happiness Giveaway: FREE Wedding Coverage from Francis Perez

To be honest I’ve really been feeling under the weather this past week (thanks to our very fickle weather). So when Monday rolled by, I just wanted to stay in bed and maybe indulge myself with some much needed sleep. But, when I got a message from one of our favorite photographers in B&B, I immediately sat up and forgot about hitting the snooze button. This is way more interesting than that shut eye–and believe me that you ought to be paying attention as well. The next three words that will come out of my mouth will be music to any couple’s ears…


“Wait a minute!” you ask yourself, “Did I read that one correctly?!” Yes siree! IT’S FREE! And this is no ordinary giveaway because it’s being generously shared to us by Francis Perez of team Pat Dy, as a way to give back as he celebrates his birthday today. We’ve always been a fan of his work not only because he captured our Japan honeymoon beautifully, but also because he’s one of the sources of the many gorgeous photos you see here at B&B.

So without further ado, here are the simple mechanics:

  1. Click the “Like” button at the bottom of this post and type “I want to win free wedding coverage from Francis Perez & Bride and Breakfast!” in the Facebook status bar.
  2. Email the following information to giveaways {at}
    • Couple’s full names
    • Couple’s picture
    • Wedding date
    • Wedding venue
    • A five to ten-sentence paragraph on the topic: “Why we love our wedding concept”.
      • Example: “We love our garden backyard wedding because we think it’s both stylish and laid back. We will be serving hamburgers, barbeque, some fries, and corn on the cob, so our guests will be loving all the comfort food. Our bridesmaids will be wearing mix-matched dresses and the guys will be in cute bowties. We chose this concept because we want to enjoy the whole wedding with our family and friends as well as celebrate our personalities.”
    • Here’s a tip! We’re looking for a tasteful and stylish wedding, whether it’s a very simple beach wedding or an extravagant ballroom affair–share about style details cause we love ’em!
  3. Like the Bride and Breakfast Facebook page and Follow Bride and Breakfast on Twitter.
  4. Like the Francis Perez Facebook page.

Before we go, here’s a photo of Ian and I taken by Francis during our Japan getaway to inspire you!

Love Giveaway

I know we promised so many giveaways for June, but truth be told, I have been swamped with family and blog duties. But do not fret, because I am trying to catch up with all the backlog giveaways I have on my lap!

Let’s start off with a bang, shall we?

Mon and Jella’s engagement shoot is pure love. Something natural and laid-back, something unassuming and fresh, something pretty and precious. So what do these gorgeous photos have to do with our giveaway? Well MBrella Multimedia sent this set our way along with a proposal we could not refuse. Drum roll please!

One blessed couple will be gifted with an engagement photo shoot with a save-the-date teaser video, inclusive of make-up service for the day. Plus the lucky lovebirds will also get full photo coverage of their wedding day. That’s one big giveaway right?

Will be announcing the criteria for joining this giveaway in my next post. Meanwhile, let’s enjoy and celebrate love this terrific Tuesday!

I Heart B&B: Mechanics

I’m so excited for our photo and styling giveaway. This is gonna be a super stylish shoot to boot! What’s super cool about this giveaway is that couples can use it as an engagement shoot, a save-the-date, or if you are already married, a post-nuptial shoot (check out our honeymoon shoot here)! So let’s cut to the chase and get down to business.

Bride and Breakfast is looking for a couple who loves what B&B stands for. If you’re a couple (or know of one) who loves pretty things, romance, tasteful elegance–and of course, style–email us at janna “at” brideandbreakfast “dot” ph.

Here are a few requirements:

  1. The couple must either be engaged or already married–indicate when the wedding date will be or when your wedding anniversary is.
  2. The couple must subscribe to Bride and Breakfast and be a fan of our Facebook page. If you have Twitter, follow us on Twitter too.
  3. We just adore a good love story, so send us yours! Please include information like your full name, ages, and work background.
  4. Tell us why you would love to win this giveaway.
  5. Quickly describe your style as a couple.
  6. Attach a picture of you and your partner.

That’s it!

I know I haven’t revealed to you our photographer but come Monday, you’ll get to meet him. (Hint: He is a talented and amazing fashion and celebrity photographer!)

Start sending those entries and watch out for coming announcements next week!

Hugs and love,
