Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends who celebrate it! :)

I was actually supposed to attend an event with my fashion blog-sisters tonight but I had to cancel because I felt too lazy to dress up. Sorry :( Anyway, today was still a good day because I spent it with my favorite girl friends from the office instead!

After work, I went to SM North EDSA with Mich, Poly and Marsha so Poly can buy a purse she can use for their department's Christmas party. She found the perfect purse alright, but I did not expect I would end up buying a few stuff for myself as well -_-

I took these home with me:

Charlotte Russe top and Aeropostale shorts from Surplus Shop | Black cloche hat from SM Accessories
I don't know why I've been passing by Surplus Shop branches all my life and not once did I think to check out the clothes before! I thought they were just low quality discarded goods, but these are actually great! The best part? They're so affordable! I got the shirt for only P199.75 while I got the shorts for only P249.75! Add to that the additional 10% discount for SM Advantage card holders because of SM's Thanksgiving Sale and my heart was almost ready to burst with delight! :D

As for the hat, well, we all know how SM Accessories is heaven-sent for all of us looking for things to add that little "extra" in ordinary outfits to make it extraordinary. I actually just wanted to see how it would look on me while Poly was walking around the department store looking for her purse. I thought it looked cute, tried it on, and never returned it since. It just sat so nicely on my head that it looked like it has belonged there forever! LOL I got the hat for P249.75 minus 10% discount.

See what I mean? It is obvious that the hat was made for me :))
It was a fun day spent with fun people. I thank the Lord for giving me wonderful friends, a wonderful life, and a sense of wonder to continuously be amazed by all the wonderful things around me.

This post should end here, but because I'm not yet sleepy, let me ramble on... Can I just say how glad I am that I am actually using my netbook Lady Fabrize now to write this post? I honestly thought she'd never be able to make it, but now she's here and she's better than ever. Yay! Tomorrow I will go to Gold's Gym in Waltermart to continue with the Fit 'n Right: The Science of Sexy challenge. Last Friday's attempt was a big, bad fail so I am hoping tomorrow's session will be so much better.

Just in case you're wondering, I am not always this big bubble of pink, positive energy. I do get sad sometimes a lot of times, but I really just focus on the positive side of things. For me, that is the much better thing to do. That, and a bright-colored lipstick ;)

PS: I've had too much Gong Cha chocolate milk tea and I can't decide whether this post is good enough to publish or not. For a more serious Thanksgiving post, let me refer you to the one I made last year. I'm glad it is still relevant :) Let's not stop feeling grateful!
