summer stuff

After the holy week, I have been staying at home to Netflix and chill. *I just finished 13 reasons why* Still waiting for the next episode of Riverdale though.

I have also been happily hoarding yet another batch of lippies. Colorpop has a sale going on and I just couldn’t resist! Eagerly asked my cousin from the US to get me some so that I can see what the liquid lipstick hype is all about. I got those ultra satin ones: Aquarius, Echo park, Chandelier, Alyssa, and Dopey.

yey for new lippies!

Also did some closet purging. I let go of my clothes that became too small for me, and found replacements for my favorites. –I am still on a lookout for a lace top, and a chambray one.  I also got new tops since its summer and I am constantly wearing shorts. Pinstripe seems to be the thing this summer, this blue one from Kamiseta fits comfortably and on trend too!

I also got this cute red one with prints on the sides from Plains and Prints.

At home we have been trying to eat healthier. Swapping ice cream for yogurt, having salad for dinner at least once or twice a week.

Sice it is “sweat season” it is always better to have more sheets (for the rotation). We got this exact set, at a discounted price too!

cheap update

There are times that I pride myself in being frugal and then there are times that I just buy without much thought because the item is on SALE. There are those I get that is a really good buy and there are those that I ask myself what was I thinking?!

I usually love sale clothing. This is the latest sale item I got.

I blame my sister for dragging me inside the shop

I hate you Plains and Prints (but in a good way) you always seem to have one item I like in your store. Why? Yellow is not really a favorite of mine, but I got it because it looks happy and blindingly bright, its on sale.

Anything below 500php that is on sale, will always draw me in. Even better if its below 300php.

With that thought, I also love checking out H&M’s sale items for the home. Again, I don’t buy full price.

The latest I got from them was a grey glass vase that I still don’t know why I got it and where to place it. I just kept it in the cabinet. 

the vase looks a lot like what I got, it set me back 200php. I did not get the mercury glass candle holder.

While in their store I always check out their throw pillow covers. But I still haven’t bought any. I also had my eye on their mercury glass candle holders. But I know I can find something that looks alike for cheaper that their sale price. I’m a cheapskate. I know.

Table wares are also one of my favorite stuff. I recently paid a visit to Crate and Barrel and snapped up these sale items.  To pair with what I currently have.

I already had two botanica plates one in green and one in blue that we use daily. (we also got it on 50% off sale) Its about 109php each I think.

the more the many-er!

Since it is still on sale, I got two more botanica plates this time in red. To add to my red Corelle set that we are keeping for the holidays. Our Corelle set is a set of four and we have a 6 seater dining so we had to make two mismatched sets to go with it. Turns out the botanica plates are much darker than my Corelle, but its ok. It can work.

When we started decorating our home one of the first décor we had was a white ceramic ears up rabbit that we also got on sale from Crate and Barrel.

This time, we saw its ears down rabbit partner! On sale! So we got it too!

After all everything is better with a discount, am I right?!
