Shopping adventure at Festival Mall Alabang

Yesterday my sister asked me to go to Festival Mall Alabang with her and her hubby. She wanted to go around and check out baby stuff. At first I didn't want to go because I knew that if I'd go, I'll spend again(which I can't coz I need the budget for the new year celebration and the payday's way too far). sigh. I still went to the mall with them and was amazed at what I've found. 

Payless has a store in Festival Mall. I've already been at their Megamall store but it didn't WOW! me. Nothing special. I didn't see anything special about the store. I've heard alot of buzz about this place but where is it??? That was until yesterday. We've realized that the shoes were arranged as per size, which makes  shopping easier, and they even have up to size 12 even for women's shoes!! AWESOME! I've never shopped for a pair of shoes with that much fun and ease. I'm a size 11, sometimes 10, and its really difficult for me to shop for shoes around here. The Pinoy size is so petite. I'm going back to Payless next payday,definitely!hahaha... here's the gorgeous sandals I've bought yesterday...gorgeous ans sexy!Another good thing about this pair is that its made of PVC. same material with Grendha (which costs around P1500 or more). This pair only costs P995....happy-happy joy-joy!!

I thought this brand had already vanished since Dupe was bought by Havs but here it is, just bought a pair yesterday at Shopwise in Festival Mall. I love this brand, half the price for a pair of Havs but more durable. Unfortunately they didn't last much. Maybe because their designs aren't that good as Havs'.

Now, back to the nail polish world. I thought this kinda looked like Chanel Khaki Vert but it wasn't. sigh. Off to my search again. I guess the nearest dupe for it would be Essie's Sew Psyched. Need to get my hands on a bottle. 

Santa, are you reading this? Christmas is over but its never too late for a present right? I want a Chanel Khaki Vert or Black pearl pls. Or Essie's Sew Psyched would do just fine. which ever fits your budget. hehehe....

My gifts to myself

Finally got my Rescue Your Nails copy! Actually way back around the first week of December, just didn't have enough time to post about it here. hehehe...I bring this to work everyday so I can read it whenever I have free time.My co-workers saw it and they all have the same line, "a book about lame.kaartehan lang!" something like that. hahaha...well,they wouldn't understand I guess. I just ignore them. I'm learning alot from this book and I don't regret buying it.I even covered it with plastic wrapping to protect it.LOL. I had to literally call one National Bookstore branch to another just to check if they still have this. And finally, NBS' Best Seller at Robinson Galleria still have one copy left....the last one.Meant to be.LOL.

(I'm wearing Wet N' Wild Eggplant Frost in this picture)

The sticker says it all

I loved Wet N' Wild Blue Sapphire so I gave the brand another chance with a different color called Eggplant Frost. Its medium purple with a hint of blue in it. I loved it on my finger nails but unfortunately it doesn't have a staying power at all. I applied it for a Christmas party and then the following day, it already chipped. I didn't even do any chores at all the night before. sigh. too bad.
Sorry for the crappy picture, I had to post it 'coz this is how it really looked like in real life

pre-clean up. kinda looks like ORLY Velvet Rope with the glitters right?
And here's Skinfood's Strawl Hot that I wore last week. I love the shade of pink and how it attracts attention. A teammate of mine even said that its a "malanding pink".hahaha...I wore it for 7 days, I think...and no chipping! So pretty, right?

Since I'm into reading these days, I also got hooked on bookmarks. I bought these in Landmark for less than P30  for 4pcs.

I also saw these really cute stickers all about love. What really caught my attention was this one:

Etude House Haul

Went back to EH and naturally I bought nail polish bottles again hehehe... Then I saw this travel pouch and I fell in love with it once I opened it. The lining was thick enough to protect whatever inside and its PINK! need I say more? 

Here's what it looks like inside. It has pockets and compartments to secure your stuff.

Since my purchase is more than P500, I got this cute pen as a freebie. I was hoping it was a 2011 planner with Lee Min Ho's pictures but fate isn't that supportive. But I like the pen just the same. It compatible with my new  planner.

It has a cute caption, too. If you can't see it that much, it says " Catch Me If You Can.....Ms. Hot"

WH709 was one of the colors I've bought before and its only last week that I got to wear it. Its a deep gray but I'm not sure the code says "WH". Does it stand for white? Because they usually give the bottle a code based on its color family like GR605

And here's the EH store in Southmall, this is actually a sneak snapshot because the Store personnels wouldn't allow me to take pictures hehehe....They have a promo now that if your purchase is worth P1000 or more, you'll get a lip and cheek tint. I really wish they'll give away a planner with Lee Min Ho's pictures. :D
