I love shopping. Even more so when I don't spend money.

05 July 2011

I've been busy the past few days (and will be busy until the week ends) so here is a quick filler-post, just so you guys won't forget me ;) Besides, some people said they love reading my haul posts - and since I haven't done one for quite a while now, well, here it is.

FYI, I am practically broke at the moment. I don't know where my most recent paycheck went, but after paying my rent and monthly bills I barely had enough to cover me for the next couple of weeks until my next paycheck comes. Touching my savings account is out of the question, of course.

My wallet felt very light yesterday, but after picking up my Harry Potter tickets (YES!!!) at the SM North EDSA yesterday I still got to buy some pretty little things. How? By using gift cards :)

When Kym and I met in Greenhills last week she gave me a pretty F21 necklace and an SM Department Store gift card. I had a hard time deciding what to spend it on, but then I figured I want/ need a jacket, specifically one in a style I don't have yet. Here's what I got:

Britney Spears for Candie's LE biker jacket
Originally priced P1,199.75 but I got it for only P1,079.77 because of the 10% discount
It comes with a detachable pin with a hot pink velvet bow and gold heart charm ♥
I love that its satin material lets me wear it on both dressy and not-so-dressy events. And yes, have I ever told you I love Britney Spears? I never stopped loving her, even when she went a bit cuckoo. I'm glad to see her revive a bit of her old self, and wish she visits Manila in the near future #BritneyFanForever. Candie's is also fast becoming one of my favorite brands now; I've bought five items of clothing from them in the last three months alone! I really, really love my new jacket. Thank you Kym!

I also received SM Accessories gift cards again, this time from Miss Diane. Here are what I got using one of them worth P1,000:

Leg Love tights by Kate Torralba = P299.75 | Black hoop earrings = P199.75
Black clutch with detachable strap = P549.75 | Paganini hairbrush = P69.75
All from SM Accessories
I wasn't supposed to buy the hairbrush, but the total cost came up to P944.25 only after the 10% discount was applied. Since I was told I could claim a prize if I present a single-receipt purchase worth at least P1,000, I added the brush to my cart, for when I blowdry my hair in the morning.

The prize for presenting receipts worth at least P1,000? MRT Stored Value cards worth P100! I was able to claim two. Real value for money! 

I really love everything I bought yesterday! I will wear them to an event I will go to tomorrow, and I'm super excited!

Big YAY for shopping without spending a penny! Big thanks again to Kym and Miss Diane for your wonderful gifts! ♥
