A Piece of Me... in August 2010

This month...

I like that this month offers lots of possibilities! For one, Eat, Pray, Love will be shown this month and I have already planned a movie and shopping-at-Forever21 date with my soul sister Ana. Because I am a loser I still haven't visited Manila's Forever21 even though it has been here for almost a month already. I will also go to Magic 89.9's station with my Seventeen Sigaw sisters Kaiye and Grace. I am also looking forward to a Salt movie date with my other Sigaw sisters Jasmine, Marianne and Alice. And of course, Meream will be visiting Manila this month. I am so excited to finally meet her :)

I also like that I bought a new phone yesterday. I named him Aristotle, suggested by my friend Mich. More about him in the next post ;)

I don't like that time passes by sooo fast. I feel like 2010 (and being 24 years young) still hasn't sunk to me yet, and now (eep!) Christmas is almost here again!

I want you to know in case you haven't noticed yet, that I bought my own domain! krissyfied.blogspot.com officially became krissyfied.com on July 28, 2010 and I couldn't be happier about it :) No need to update your links though as I got it from Google itself so you will still be redirected to this new site ;) In my About Me page, I said I have wanted to get my own domain for as long as I can remember so that's the first thing I did [a day after] the moment I got the chance. Yes, there's another thing I want you to know; I got my first credit card last week!

Why hello there, shopping partner :D

Those who know me personally will be surprised that this is my first credit card, knowing that I work for a bank. I think they are a bit grateful as well since I was a total spend-aholic back then (not anymore, though!). I was hesitant to get a card at first; maybe my workplace experiences contributed to my fear of the plastic as the perils of identity theft, fraud, overspending, and (most of all, at least in my case) SALES are cases I know too well. However, there must come a time when we must grow up, face our fears, and try to have a good credit rating. Good thing there are several Bankard booths peppered all over The Landmark in TriNoma, waiting for shoppers who would want to apply for a card. I actually didn't think the application form I filled out two weeks ago would be approved, but this arrived at the mail after only 12 days! I have no qualms keeping this card as the credit limit is verrry manageable. Plus, I love its being a discount card, loyalty card and credit card in one.

I've planned to keep a close eye on my budget especially since our Singapore trip is fast approaching. SM North-EDSA's Great Northern Sale just flew right by me, and I am happy to say I did not buy anything! I don't know why, but I couldn't seem to find the mood even when I was surrounded by rows and rows of pretty little things. That's a feat! :D *Looks at the beginning of this post and sees the little bit about my planned first visit to Forever21* Uh-oh.

I want to say to someone special all of you, let's sprinkle August with a good dose of fun, hearty laughter and a generous serving of Spectacular Spectacular! :D

This is a game thought up by the Toothfairy so we can all share a bit of ourselves to our readers by completing a set of unfinished sentences every first Sunday of the month.
