My New Toy

My new Kodak Zi8 Pocket Video Camera is finally here!!!

I got it from amazon.com and it was actually an email from them with a list of their top 10 electronic gadgets that made me WANT this thing. I can’t believe promotional emails worked on me. But before taking the plunge, I researched and found reviews saying that this was better than the its famous counterpart, the Flip Video Ultra HD. And I got a good deal for it!

So excited to try it! Will post a video soon! 🙂

P.S. Sorry for the crappy photo, I used my phone’s camera…

Schutz is L.O.V.E.

Back in college, I used to love wearing heels. It didn’t matter if I towered over my boyfriend (now husband :)). I was in heels everyday! But since my first pregnancy, I started to wear flats all the time. I just couldn’t be in heels for a whole day, not even just for a couple of hours for that matter. It’s like the moment I step out of the house, my back would start to hurt. Then later on, my legs and feet would “join the club”. Then that’s death of me.

But heels have this magical power to transform. It makes you taller, makes you look leaner and sexier! And often times, pairing your cute outfit with heels is the only way to go… So here is my gorgeous find…

Schutz “Sapato” from The Cruise Collection in Soft Cream

Beautiful SCHUTZ Logo

I saw these beauties when I quickly sneaked in Adora while doing a shoot for a TV show (we were at the Louis Vuitton store which is just across). I was actually eyeing the black ones. I didn’t try them on that time as I had no intentions of buying that day. I would be embarrassed to carry a shopping bag while working (not unless I can hide it in my bag). Of course, I couldn’t forget about them and had to go back the next few days. Since I do not have nude heels (not that I can remember, anyway), I decided to get these instead. But I probably would’ve gotten the black ones too if I weren’t able to control myself. LOL. After all, they were on sale from Php5,450.00 to just Php3,270.00!

Black & Nude Schutz Heels on Display at Adora

I absolutely love them! Never mind the fact that I almost lost my balance when I tried them on at the store. They’re so pretty and sexy! I just hope I’ll be able to wear them soon (and not fall)! 🙂

Schutz is available at Adora, Greenbelt 5, Makati City, Philippines.

Look What I Made!

I love etsy.com! I lose track of time when I visit that site! They have so much nice handmade stuff and you know how much I love creating things… Inspiration overload!

Handstamped jewelry is my latest obsession. Saw these adorable personalized pendants months ago and I was so tempted to order. But I knew I could make them myself. I researched and saw this complete starter set on etsy.com and ordered it. It’s a pretty good set and I think I got more than what I really needed to start.

Here’s what I made…

I know the letters are not equally spaced and aligned. I still have to practice working with the tools as it takes a lot of getting used to. But I like my pendant, I actually find the imperfections charming. I love wearing it and it’s so dainty!

I so want to order more letter sets but the super nice ones are very pricey. Plus it is very hard to look for thin metal sheets in different shapes here. I shall keep looking though, I know I’ll find them somehow. Until then, I will be happy with what I have and make the most of them. Resist temptation!!! 😉

Retail Therapy

Have you heard of Popsugar’s Retail Therapy game on Facebook? You must try it!!! You’ll absolutely love it!!! I’m soooooo addicted to it!

Here’s the gist: basically, you’ll be a store owner. You open up a boutique and fill it with your choice of clothes, shoes and bags from a catalog. Brands include Gap, Banana Republic, Topshop, Juicy Couture, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Rag and Bone, Barneys NY, Alexander Wang, Christian Louboutin & Lanvin. Not all brands are available when you start. You have to have good sales, happy customers and a nicely decorated store to unlock new stuff. When you go up a level, you also get to unlock new clothes to buy for your avatar and new gifts to give to your neighbors. Or you can visit Topshop or DVF to buy new clothes. Then you can also get a new hairstyle and makeup for your avatar!

Here’s a screen shot of my store before opening:

Level 10 & Well-Stocked

I tend to get OC when restocking my store. I close it down and fill it with stuff before opening it to shoppers. But I always end up with empty shelves and racks since I can only order a couple of items at a time. Maintaining a well-stocked store is hard work!

Here’s my store now:

Level 12 & Empty

Sad, isn’t it? Time to go and restock! 🙂

Jeffrey Campbell Ring 2

I love Jeffrey Campbell!!!

I’ve been obsessing over eyeing this pair for the longest time and since I just couldn’t forget about them, I talked myself into giving in! Hahaha.

I got them at the Fashion Forum section of SM Makati for Php4,975.00, which is very expensive for me – I do not spend that much for shoes. Thank God for SM Advantage points and Sodexo GCs from last Christmas, I only had to pay for half! But then I also bought a bunch of home stuff so I didn’t really feel the “discount”… Like who am I kidding, right? LOL

Anyway, I just adore them to bits! But I am thinking of getting a pair of simple ballet flats (also in black) that I can literally wear everyday just so I don’t wear out my Jeffreys. Uh-oh! And I told myself I wouldn’t have to buy another pair if I get these.

By the way, SM’s Fashion Forum carries other brands like Dolce Vita, Report, Chinese Laundry to name a few. Check the place out. They also go on sale! 🙂
