Coastal Scents 78 Piece Palette plus other loot

I was browsing through dollface to check on possible purchases, when I saw an announcement that Coastal Scents make-up palettes are being offered in Peppered Cherry, which is just about a block away from where I work. I literally dropped everything and dashed out of the office building. Needless to say, I came back a happy camper. 🙂

This is the new addition to my collection. I’m probably one of the last to own a CS palette, (I’m a late adapter I know!). T’was simply love at first sight. Reminds me of my childhood
watercolor kit.Loves it!!! Am excited to see what I can do with this palette. Got it for PHP 1,000 ($ 21.46) which is actually more expensive than purchasing online. But I don’t mind paying extra really, as it saves me from the long wait (which is always a killer!)… plus at least I wouldn’t have to deal with getting all worked up over a slightly cracked eyeshadow as it happens a lot during shipping.

So anyway, I’ve also picked up a few things over the past week or so. Just want to share ’em with ya’ll. I hit Market! Market! and one of the shoe stores in the Fashion Market section offered a “Buy 1 Take 1” deal on shoes. Although I’ve had my share of hits and misses with bazaar shoe purchases, I’ve decided to splurge on this one since the price isn’t that painful in the pocket at PHP 580 ($ 12.47) for two shoes.

These gold ballerina shoes killed my feet till day 2 but after that, it’s just like walking on clouds.

This quirky zebra print is pretty unexpected which is probably why it caught my attention. It adds a little personality to the usual plain top and skinny jeans. I was pleasantly surprised that this pair was so comfortable on the get go.

I went to Podium and dropped by the Buffalo Jeans store, which was on clearance sale. I think the sale extends till mid Feb… if I’m not mistaken.
So here I am doing the Karen Cheng inside the store’s dressing room. I am lemming that wall paper! Anyway, I wanted to see what the back looks like so pardon the weird pose. This hoodie top dropped from PHP 1,398 ($ 30.06) to PHP 399 ($ 8.57). If that’s not a good deal then I don’t know what is! The jeans are all on sale so, PI-based beauties, you might wanna check that out.

Okay here’s the last item in my recent loot. This is where the dorky side of me comes out. LOL. See, since I do events, I always have my trustee clipboard with me. I’ve had the same clipboard for four years and it’s been with me through thick and thin…through hell and back so to speak. Unfortunately, I left it when I did an event in Cebu recently. Sniff!

So I went to Living Well and they were also on clearance sale. Their china was on 50% as well as all the nice looking kitchen stuff. Anyway, I found this normal looking clipboard that you see here….Oh yeah…behind that is my office desk, phone and cellphone. People wonder why I keep my flip phone open like that when it’s on my desk. It’s because I always keep it on silent mode. Not that it’s a strict office policy or something. I just feel it just adds unnecessary stress. So that’s why I leave it open so I can see it light up when I receive SMS or calls.

Sorry sidetracked! I’m a do some shutting up now. Hehehe. Anyway, going back to the clipboard…

Yup, nothing extraordinary….But when I saw that it could do this…. all I could say was…Bag ’em up!

It comes with a secret drawer that fits all my post-its and colored pens perfectly. Yup at my age, I still play with colored pens. I’m just a big kid that’s all. LOL.
It also has a feature on both ends that can keep your pens and such. Nifty eh?! From PHP 240 ($ 5) it went down t0 PHP 120 ($ 2.59). My only gripe with this thing is that it was obviously old stock being a bit dusty and all, but it’s nothing that some good ol’ washing couldn’t handle.

So that was my recent haulage. Hope ya’ll enjoyed that as much as I did.

Ciao Ladies 🙂

Post report of Converse Sale

I went to the last day of the Converse Sale over at Megatrade and I was a bit overwhelmed by the set up. Pedicab was jamming on a mini-stage by the entrance, while kids wearing black and goth make-up were pooling in certain areas (afraid!).

Anyway, once you enter, you’ll see shelves lined up with stacks and stacks of Chucks  (without boxes) arranged per price category and size.  As usual, took out my spy cam (LOL) to take snapshots of the place.

Here’s the thing though, despite the tons of choices, I didn’t end up buying. I’m sure you’re thinking “What?! Okay ka lang?!” but yeah, I left the place empty-handed. Why? Well, for one, being that it was the last day, although there were still tons of Chucks around, the designs were pretty limited. Two, I narrowed down to this black pair with zebra stripes but when the sales guy checked for the price, it was at PHP 1,900 from PHP 2,300 or 2,400. So on the bargain level, it was a bit on the EHHH! side. No regrets though. I’ll buy when I really feel its necessary (yeah right!).

Hubby went on the second day of the sale, so I guess the selection at that time was better. Anyway, he brought home these cool black high-cut chucks which he got for just PHP 1,200. I think the original price is PHP 2,600 or PHP 2,700 . Now that’s a bargain!

Loot from Shop @ The Fort Bazaar

I hit the “Shop @ The Fort bazaar” over at NBC Tent last night and I must say, it is definitely one of the most impressive bazaars that I’ve ever been to, as far as selection of items is concerned. Thanks to Karl Edward International for making the bazaar, a definite thumbs up! The items are all of good quality,  so no cheap-looking pirated crap here. So here’s my loot….

Baby Limey

spa-christmas-party-071Yep she has a name. Hehe. If you’ve known me for quite a while, you’d know that I give names to a lot of my stuff. For instance, there’s Jupiter for my laptop, Kawaii for my pink cellphone and Sookie my Canon digicam.

Anyways, so I’ve been lemming this yellow bag over at Rustan’s Makati and I almost carved it in stone that I was going to come back for it before the year ends. The damage for that bag is PHP 1,700 plus.

But when I hit the bazaar yesterday, I found this baby for PHP 950, the lowest I could manage to nego was PHP 900 (makunat!) but counting my bills, I knew I had to grab it otherwise, I might lose sleep over visions of donning a yellow bag.

spa-christmas-party-072

I love the opening! This pretty much solves my problems with zippers. I swear with all the bags that I have, give or take around 12 to 15 of em’ don’t have zipper pulleys anymore. I have a tendency to snap that darn thing off especially when I’m rushing.

spa-christmas-party-073

Another thing that I absolutely love about this bag (well aside from the striking fashionista color), is the fact that it fits all my loot snugly with its mini-partition in the middle that separates my stuff (refer to photo above). It’s also easy to find everything because its just laid out pretty nicely once you open the bag. I like the nice floral lining detail underneath, the big pockets outside and best of all, I love that it expands so even if it looks like I’m just carrying a little bag (which is so unlike me), this bag is actually quite huge. The power of illusions…EYELOVET!!!

Make-up

I stopped by this stall that offered a deal of “3 items for PHP 200”. So I rummaged through the little basket with all these eyeliners, lipsticks, lipglosses and such, and decided on these final 3.

spa-christmas-party-076

This is the e.l.f. brightening eye color liner and it comes with its own e.l.f. sharpener. Below is a swatch of the color where I drew a little heart. Okay… I think I just wasted product just doing that. LOL.stuff-019Anyways, I guess it’ll work well on the corners of my eyes since it’s almost like white. But let’s see. Oh! that chunky watch that you see there is my hub’s early Christmas present.  It’s a Nike watch with tons of features, that I don’t even know how to work ’em all. Analog doesn’t seem to work for me anymore. I just totally drained out my two watches this year. Replacement batteries won’t even cut it. I think its caused by my bad habit of washing dishes while wearing my watch. So I guess water-proof is the way to go for me now. Thanks daddy-o!

spa-christmas-party-077

Second make-up purchase is the eyeshadow quad in “Silver Lining”. Here’s the swatch. stuff-020Obviously the two light ones can’t be seen on cam, but I assure you it’s there. Have to take this baby for a test drive. I’ll let you know if it’s a good buy at all.

spa-christmas-party-080I got me a contour brush from the Courtney Brooke line.I have no idea what that collection is by the way. The bristles are quite firm. I like the easy grip handle. I think this has got to be the longest make-up brush that I now own. I need to learn how to contour though, especially with my double chin making an appearance and my round face getting rounder by the day. Okay note to self: Come 2009, you have to stay away from those darn cupcakes!

spa-christmas-party-081Okay this is just a little nifty thing that I picked up at the bazaar. It’s a spoon and fork holder. Exactly what I needed to store my utensils in my office drawer. PHP 50 for this cutie. Comes in blue and pink too!

I highly recommend you check out this bazaar. I think it lasts till the 23rd, if I’m not mistaken. Entrance fee is PHP 50. Good news is they accept credit cards. There’s also a food bazaar at the foyer where the boyfriends or hubbies can wait while you oggle at the loots. Enjoy shopping!
