I know I’ve been posting about bags, bags, and more bags these past few days. Well, this is a life of a bagaholic. It is part of living lush-ciously (of course, I only speak for myself). Anyways, this is actually a delayed post. I know I promised (as seen in this post) to present my new baby as soon as I get hold of it. I’m kinda busy these days which is why I wasn’t able to take a picture of it right away. Below are some pictures though when I went out with my friends last Saturday.
I finally decided this morning to buy the Joy Boston Bag I posted yesterday. I actually gave a deadline to myself… that is if I don’t make up my mind today, I won’t get it anymore. But when I went to the website of Gucci this morning, the bag is gone!!! I just saw it last night and now it isn’t there anymore!!! PANIC! I honestly don’t know what to feel right now. I feel partly sad and regretful since that bag is such a great bargain! But at the back of my mind, maybe I should be thankful. It saved me from making another purchase, which I promised to be next year. Oh well, maybe the bag isn’t really for me. Hahaha! Come to think of it… It’s color white and knowing myself, it would get dirty in just a matter of weeks! And the next dilemma comes… How the hell should I clean it? Definitely my leather cleaner won’t work since it is a cloth-like material. Brushes might just ruin the fabric or discolor it. So maybe, just maybe, it’s a good thing that the bag is now gone… Well, at least I can save up for what I really, really like. Right? Right? Right? Good reasoning or am I just ranting here because I wasn’t able to get it???
But anyways, that was really close… *wink*
Nope, I wasn’t with my family this time. I had dinner with my friends at… where else but in Greenbelt! Hahaha! I know I have said this so many times but I just have to reiterate this… Greenbelt 5 is really like heaven to me! LOL! Okay, the truth is I enjoyed sooo much strolling around since I was hunting for my next bag. I know, I know I just got my Chanel PST (which I will be sharing soon) but again an addict like me doesn’t know how to stop! Argh! BUT I promised myself to control for the rest of the year… and the next purchase? Probably next year??? LOL! But guess what?! Another confession before I get to the real topic… when I went inside Gucci, I almost brought home a new bag! But since my mom gave me two of her Gucci bags already, buying another Gucci wouldn’t be on the top of my list. But, but, but… who could ever resist a 45% discount?! Yah, Gucci in Greenbelt 4 is on sale but only on selected items. Oh gosh, if only the bag I tried on isn’t too small, I am actually ready to splurge again! Well on second thought, I think I should be thankful! Hahaha!
Two weeks ago, I visited the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) exhibit at Eastwood. I actually went there to support my friends, Misty and Eileen, since they were part of it. It is like their thesis since all PSID students that are about to graduate should be able to display their talents through exhibits. When I got inside, I was so amazed on how the students were able to do such wonderful booths.While I walk around the building, Misty shared some facts about this project. The graduating students are asked to group themselves. Some prefer to do the project alone, while others in pairs, triads or quads. One group = One booth. The exhibit is divided into 4 parts- Blissful Burbs, Peaceful Peaks, Highrise Haven and Sea Sanctuaries. Each group was asked to draw lots to determine in which theme they will be assigned to. And guess how much each booth costs?! Each group shelled out at least Php 250,000 just to buy the appliances or decorations needed! Geesh! Just imagine how much they need to spend if they do not have sponsors. And by the way, the Php 250,000 is still on top of the rent they paid for the building and their tuition fee! Whew! That’s a lot of bags or probably a Hermes. 🙂
