Say hello to your newest favorite store~ CNA is the first Korean “fancy shop” in the country brought to us by the Krimmy couple. It’s like the Korean version of Saizen focused on beauty and fashion products!
C.N.A. officially opened its first branch in Manila last May 19, 2012. C.N.A., which stands for “Culture, Nature, Art” is a concept store that sells fancy jewelries such as earrings, necklaces and bracelets, hair ornaments, trinkets and other fashion accessories and even Korean cosmetics and albums of K-pop idols! All of the products are made and imported from Korea. -CNA Phils, Facebook
The door on the left :)
View from the door… *ahem spot the Korean boyfriend* :)
I went in there wanting to take photos for the readers of my blog. And I noticed that the staff were all smiles and very accommodating. They answered my questions and gave me info that I needed. *thumbs up for customer service*
I noticed that when I go inside an empty store, a lot of people will come in after me. Not because they want to be with me. But probably I’m some kind of lucky charm for businesses?? Happens all the time with restaurants and coffee shops too. ~tralala
Now feast your eyes on these! OVER 40 PHOTOS to drool at!
Like a boodle table filled with trays of cute accessories!
Authentic KPOP albums for sale!! *these are already sold out* Do drop by the store and see if there’s a new delivery. I was told that there will be a new one soon :)
The ladies in gray are CNA staff ~warm personalities ready to assist you!
I actually got myself some lower lashes. The band is so thin it’s almost invisible but even when I pulled it off the case, it felt sturdy! *awesome* ~comes with free lash glue too.
Closer look: Spot the SUZY nameplate! I WANT!
All kinds of nerd glasses you can think of. Even round witch-y ones!
Great as friendship charms too!
A variety of facial masks from Korea! Try everything from nature…
…even the much hyped snail extracts!

Of course, what is hygiene without these items?
It was hard to restrain myself. I had to keep in mind that I recently bought 4 headbands at Davao.
Bunnies and strawberries!! *brb, dies*

Dainty necklaces. A no fail gift to girlfriends! These are SILVER btw. Can you spot the bow, the lightning, the plane, and the star? Props to you for having good vision.
