When Will I Stop?

My recent buys:

The wallet has been with me for a month now. Am not using it though cos I posted it on first. Someone might like it. Wish I could buy a passport holder that matches it. hihi.

Oh, I love Kate Spade. This is the old wallet that I recently sold on ebay. Used it for a month, fell in love with the peacock leather and the rest is history.

(What happened to the Prada wallet? It's mom's now. Too classy for me.)

My very first Fendi.

So, when will I stop? Never.

What Kind of Shopper Are You?

You Are a Loyal Shopper

You are a very picky shopper and tend to be loyal to a few brands.

You are willing to pay extra to buy from a brand you trust.

Of all the types, you're the most likely to own many designer items.

You don't seek out sales as much as most people... unless it's a sale at your favorite store!

My Powerbooks Shopping Cart

I haven't had the chance to go out this weekend. So, i went online shopping instead. I tried to veer away from or Amazon and tried local online shops this time.

Two of my most awaited things will be landing on my doorstep soon.

A Bag Raincoat: The Most Unappealing Bag Accessory Ever Made

I always consider designer bags an investment and for what it's worth, it would be best to keep them in their sleeping bags inside my closet during rainy days. I just happened to realize that I am not the only one with this idea in mind when I came across a forum where discussions circle around caring for purses and handbags that are worth, well, never mind.

A certain girl suggest getting those bag raincoat thingies and the other girl whose a Vuitton fanatic rejected the idea, saying that she'd rather go out without her favorite Louis Vuitton Vernis Reade than have a hideous plastic wrapped around her gorgeous LV. Another lady even shared her opinion that she's happy with her Coach bag that costs a couple of hundred bucks, because she can carry it around without having to worry about the bag getting drenched.

I agree with the LV girl. I hate the idea behind bag raincoats that I am pretty sure no girl in her right state of mind would use such for her quilted Chanel. Imagining the sight of it is enough to make me wanna throw up.

As for the Coach lady, you're lucky you can afford to have your bag get wet. Hypothetically, I have a Tonal C Carly, I still wouldn't submit to the idea that "it's ok for it to get wet, cos it costs less than my LV anyway." Cos really, my bags don't wanna be one with nature--rain or shine!

Hypothetically? Hmm.. Ok, now you're included in my wish list.

The Red Card

If you're going shopping, you better have the red card ready! It's the Esprit Privilege Card that lets you shop 'till you drop without having to drain everything your wallet has. You can enjoy ten percent discount on all regular items, for cash or credit card transactions.

I didn't splurge this time, duh, I just had three shopping bags! And besides, the card's valid for one year so there's really no need to hurry. Hear, hear?

Christmas Wish List

I know I have tons of "me likey" things but the ones listed below are especially for the Christmas season. This time, am gonna limit the list to just 10. So here it goes.

10. Shu Uemura Depsea Water Facial Mist. It's one thing that I want to be found inside my everyday bag. It's ideal to use especially under the sun's scorching heat to refreshen and hydrate skin and hair.

9. Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler. It's the best eyelash curler ever made by man. Enough said.

8. A Toywatch or a Technomarine watch. Just because.

7. An oversize tote bag. I need a really large bag where I can put my everyday stuff--cosmetic pouch, sunglasses, packed lunch, a book and/or a magazine, cell phones, mp4 player, wallet/coin purse, umbrella, wet ones, alcohol, brush, etc.

6. Square-shaped nails. I tried having nails that are long enough so I can have perfect french tips but my nails are weak. Will a nail hardener help? Hmm.. I wonder.

5. A valid ID. Government issued that is. Am so tamad to get at least a postal ID. lol.

4. A new phone. Am not really particular when it comes to cell phones. Any model will do as long as it can be used to text and call, and maybe has a nice cam resolution to go with it.

3. ASUS Laptop (F80L - 4P011D). When I saw this, bam! It was a love at first sight.

2. A cocktail dress and a cocktail ring (and maybe a purse). Two (three) items in number 2, I know. I am not cheating here but wouldn't it be nice if I could wear the dress with a ring and a matching purse to complete the look?

1. A new house. I know it's a big thing for a 22-year old girl like me. But it's for our whole family. My mom and dad want to leave the house we own now and move in someplace less complicated. But it's really hard to find a nice home in a good location, in a peaceful community and in a disciplined neighborhood where values of people don't actually clash altogether. My year would be complete if this one would come to reality.

Me Veers Away from Splurging

My boyfriend and I were supposed to go to Shangri-La Plaza yesterday but knowing my tendencies to splurge, he convinced me to go to Podium instead. He might have thought that the smaller the mall, the fewer the stores, and the fewer the stores, the less chances of me shopping. Oh well. It was a good thing he made the calls coz if it wasn't for that, I would have bought myself this:

Isn't she gorgeous? It's the Toywatch Mother of Pearl Chrono, a classic chronograph with luminescent mother of pearl dials atop its signature acrylic bracelet. It has Quartz Chronograph with a precision stopwatch and three sub-dials: a second hand sub-dial, a 24-hour sub-dial, and a sub-dial that measures up to 60 minutes on the stopwatch. Its face is made of genuine mother of pearl and has tritanium (night-glow) hands. Also, this Toywatch has Swarovski crystals for its dot markers for added elegance.

I've been eyeing this for months now and I really want to get myself one. Soon. Maybe when the boyfriend is busy doing anything else. I abstain for now but I'm gonna have to make sure that I'll add this to my wish list. Christmas is coming. *wink, wink*

I'm sure you can get this at Rustan's and I've heard there are online stores that carry this as well.
