It's gonna be October in a few days and I have not even started with my Christmas list yet!  But I have a good idea already of what to give as Christmas giveaways this year: glass jars filled with Christmas-themed candies.  I like the idea of giving something reusable and filled with sweet treats! How about these as inspirations? Here's another version of ... READ MORE

Tagged with Love!

Processed with VSCOcam with g3 preset

Sorry I have been filling up this blog with mostly shopping finds!  But they're all good stuff, anyway so I hope it makes everybody happy too, hehe! Let me just share with you these handmade gift tags I ordered from Tagged with Love (formerly 43lucy.com).  It took a while for the gift tags to arrive from the U.S. (something must be done with our local postal service, argh!) ...

The start of my tea cup collection

P1340294_b

Remember the Royal Albert tea cup and saucer set I gifted myself with for my birthday this year? I bought that from @paperstrawlove, an IG seller carrying the finest brands of home and kitchenware. Her catalog of vintage tea cups is to die for! Since then, I have been dreaming of my own tea cup collection.  I am especially drawn to those in white, black, gold and blue ... READ MORE

The Business of Fast Fashion

fast_fashion_sale

It's the end-of-season sale once again and at Glorietta last weekend, I saw lots of clothing shops on sale frenzy (again!), giving discounts to as big as 70%.  These shops already gave huge discounts in their last summer sale, and here they are at it again. I wonder at how these merchants earn profit.  What's the mark-up then when they can slash prices off to as much as ... READ MORE

Sorry for the bad lighting.  I took pictures of these right after I got home ('cos I can't wait till tomorrow to share my good ... READ MORE

Decorative Trays at the Landmark

P1330490_b

While I have successfully avoided the lure of shopping at the home section of H&M, at Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Crate & Barrel, I could not stick to that "self-control" whenever I am at the Home Section of the Landmark Department Store. It doesn't help too that they are selling decorative trays that are so "in" these days, and if you love anything decoupage then ... READ MORE

A Day at West Elm in Estancia Mall

Jpeg

Next to bags and paper products, shopping for stylish home items is something I am addicted to.  So when I learned that West Elm has opened at the beautiful (but small) Estancia Mall in Capitol Commons (just beside the Ynares Sports Arena in Kapitolyo, Pasig),  I made sure to check it out last weekend. West Elm was founded in Brooklyn, New York in 2002 by the same ... READ MORE

Check it out, ladies!  Cath Kidston's biggest sale (of the year) is now on!  Just click on the banner above and start shopping away! I haven't decided yet if I will buy from this sale, but seeing that there are lots of items marked down at 40%, I might just swipe my credit card away! Thankfully, I am eyeing only 1 item - a cup and saucer set - but I wanted to get 6 of ... READ MORE
