Remember this post about this Tory Burch tote?
Well, it did not stop haunting me, until it caught with me at one of the parties we attended. And I went home with it! Weee! The husband took pity and told me to just get it if I wanted it so badly. There goes his Christmas gift to me. And what can I say? I was right in loving it the minute I saw it. I so love it!
There she is during our mall trip early this week. The bag is so roomy it can fit both the girls’ stuff, plus some more. I don’t regret losing sleep over it, LOL!
The husband only agreed to buy me a new bag when I told him I can sell three more to augment the cost. Quite honestly, I was nervous to accept the challenge because I wasn’t even confident I can sell. So I just bit the bullet and ordered the bags. They even got lost in transit, well kind of, because they didn’t arrive within the 10-working days timeframe. Cath Kidston UK had to send a new batch because we both could not track the package. But thank heavens, the bags arrived before my brother’s flight schedule. The second package arrived though, but my sister is going to send them back.
So the real challenge came when I need to find buyers. I took pictures of my merchandise and collaged them.
Would you believe I sold these beauties in less than an hour (well I only closed the sale for the red one yesterday but it was easily reserved and 2 more were in the waiting list so I considered this sold too)?! The husband was amazed I actually did it, LOL! Now I am a happy owner of the Notting Hill Rose Day Bag too!
My friend recently opened her online shop inspired by her little princess. Dainty Ashley is all about hair accessories and believe me when I say that the stuff they sell are really nice, handmade from a pet-free and smoke-free home. I already ordered some headbands and clippies for my girls.
Just look how gorgeous these items are! Order for your girls now, I’m sure they will love their trinkets too. By the way, there are new collections to be released soon, so better look out for that because some stocks are only in limited quantities.
Perhaps it was because of the numerous hydroxycut reviews that I have read and actually losing weight after cutting down on rice, soda and iced tea that I got inspired to shop for clothes to wear for our upcoming beach trip. For the longest time, I was delaying this trip to the shops because I am not that confident about my body. But since I lost a few pounds and I cannot delay it any further, I went to purchase cover-ups, summer dresses, board shorts and swimsuits. Oh boy, I went home with a bag full of loots! I found some really nice swimsuits and I am happy to say that I saw and bought one that is similar to what I was eyeing:
I got the thumbs up from the husband when I tried it on. I can’t wait to wear it in Boracay!
It seems like Espadrilles are hot items these days. I got myself a pair, and in red (!) at a bazaar in Eastwood. It was love at first sight! My mom had to ask me twice if I was sure I wanted it because it didn’t look too comfortable. I insisted and got my way, of course.
I wore it to mass on Sunday and I paid for my fickle mindedness. But once I broke it in, I was fine and was thinking I am never really a shoe-girl in the first place, so a little scratch is okay. Maybe if I wear it a few more times, it will get more comfortable? We’ll see.
After all those hassles and delays, my Red Cabas finally arrived at my doorstep (more like at the guard’s) yesterday afternoon.
I think I already mentioned here my desire to have this particular bag. Well, I could not delay gratification any further that even if I said I will just buy next year, I ordered for one in October! The shipment got held at the customs and that is another story.
I am happy that a branch opened nearer us. I can’t afford to visit Megamall all the time. On Sunday, I had to run a quick errand for Mom and I am glad the husband agreed to go with me. I asked if we could go earlier so I can check if there are available boots in Payless. Now I am not exactly a boots type of girl but I need a pair for the upcoming trip. I was just going to window-shop but I went home with a pair of this:
The husband agreed to pay for it and isn’t he a darling? I checked online and I am glad to report that this pair is cheaper here than if I ordered it online. Such a steal.
Now all I need to do is break this in considering that I have a bad history with wearing new shoes!
My order arrived yesterday afternoon
It is a Long Champ Long Handle Limited Edition Great Wall of China in Brown. I asked a favor from a friend to buy it for me in Hong Kong. I am so happy with it that I used it immediately when we went to the mall last night. This is a reward for all the hard work I’ve done since the beginning of the year The husband paid for half the amount, and can you say I am a happy wife because of that?! I am eyeing another LC bag but that will have to wait until next year
