Try Local PH

A few months ago, my dear friends Chesa, Kristine, and I lamented over the lack of a site to bring awareness to awesome local brands.

Being the pro-active (and slightly crazy) people that we are, we decided to do it ourselves.

Introducing our little project with big possibilities: @trylocalph. A movement to shine light on much-deserved quality local finds.

Follow our Instagram or FB page to discover concepts, places, products, and ideas shaping our cultural landscape. Or better yet, join the movement and tag your favorite local brands and establishments with #trylocalph to be featured.

I’ll be curating the site two days out of the week. I hope to see you there. ☺️

  3. Hi! Just started following your blog and loving it! Awesome idea, by the way. I’ve been itching to suggest something like this to my friends. Glad to have found this! <3
