Ho Ho Ho! 54 days, 7 hours and 40 minutes before Christmas. πŸ™‚ And it looks like my personal Santa Claus is at it again. But this time, he decided to start granting my 2012 Wishlist early this year. I wonder why? Hmm.. maybe because I’ve been super nice this year. *happydance LOL!
Well whatever his reason was, I got to spent the entire afternoon yesterday shopping at Greenhills, SM Makati and Landmark. I was so dead tired when I got home but it was all worth it. So thank you! I got a lot of new babies to try and I’m super excited!

Before shopping, Santa and I stopped by Virginia Olsen‘s office in Greenhills to meet Ms. Jirbie, the brand’s marketing manager. I spent an hour swatching their gorgeous eyeshadows and chatting with Ms. Jirbie about the blogsphere. I can’t wait to show you the swatches! But more on that on a separate post. πŸ™‚

Spikes are in right now and I love how edgy they look so I also got several spiked accessories for myself. There’s no way I’ll be left out of this edgy punk trend. It’s so me!
CLOTHES, CLOTHES AND MORE CLOTHES!

Keep Calm Shirts: Php 200 each — Cheap noh? πŸ™‚
Lately, I’ve been loving the “Keep Calm” mantra for no apparent reason. I even bought a shirt especially made for our course with that mantra; “Keep Calm and Be a CPA” but guess what?! It wasn’t enough as I was still lemming for more “Keep Calm” merchandise. LOL! So when I saw this entire booth full of “Keep Calm” shirts, I just couldn’t contain myself and immediately asked for my size. LOL! 

They’re super cheap but the fabric used was surprisingly soft! Perfect pambahay. *wink
Red Blazer: Php 700, I think. 
Finally, I found a kikay blazer! I’m tired of all my black corporate blazers. It’s time to amp up my business attires a notch and this striking red blazer will do the job perfectly!

See-Through Blouses: Php 350 each.
Halfway through, I realized I bought several pambahay t-shirts and absolutely no blouses for dates and hangouts. So the grabbed the first 2 decent-looking blouses in sight. These 2 blouses are actually out of my comfort zone as I normally don’t wear loose pieces of clothing but I can’t wait to see how I can make it work for me.
And for my favorite purchase for the day…

New rubber shoes from Pony (Php 2300). I originally wanted to get a red pair from Converse but when I saw the row of pink rubber shoes, I had an immediate change of heart and I was set on buying a pink pair. Of all the rubber shoes there, this was by far the best for me. Simply because I believe it has the right amount of girly vibe, don’t you think? πŸ™‚
Now, I have to cross out a couple of things from my 2012 Wishlist
All thanks to my personal Santa. Hihi. πŸ™‚
See you on my next post!
