Hello everybody! I'm finally back. Well actually I've been home since the 24th and was supposed to get back to blogging yesterday but I had errands to do and I decided to hangout with my boyfriend as well. I blogged about how my day went yesterday on my personal blog. Feel free to check it out if you have time.
Anyway, I decided to share with you some of the stuff I got during my trip to Cadiz-Bacolod and some of the things I acquired this afternoon. I didn't do much shopping. I just got some stuff that I wanted/needed and knew wouldn't be really available in Zamboanga.
Most of the stuff I got were actually food items for pasalubong. Most of which are already happily tucked in tummies of several close friends and my boyfriend. Too bad I forgot to take individual photos of mango tartlets, caramel tarts, piyaya and pinasugbo. Maybe next time?
Aside from pasalubong, I got four original CDs/DVDs. I only took a photo of the three CDs since the fourth one's a "surprise" for the boyf. I got ADELE's "Live at The Royal Albert Hall" CD+DVD because I'm a huge fan of Adele. My dad and lil sister are fans too. I'm sure all of us will enjoy it. They better enjoy it! It cost me P550! *lol* I also got the "Woman In Love" CD that's a mix of different "love" songs by different artists which cost only P350. Lastly aside from the secret CD, I also got Rihanna's "Talk That Talk". It got a "stern" look from lola because of the parental advisory sticker but she eventually caved in. It cost P550. I know I spend quite a sum on 4 CDs but luckily they accepted lola's senior citizen ID so I got a nice discount!
Being the bookworm that I am, I took the chance of getting new books from National Bookstore. Unfortunately we don't have any NB stores in Zamboanga, so I told lola I NEEDED to get new books. I'm sort of sick with the old ones I have at home. I got a book by Jodi Picoult called The Tenth Circle and one by Samantha Sottoe, a filipina, titled Before Ever After. The former cost P349 while the latter cost P499.
Of course I also got makeup products! Well... Actually lola got me these. I only got two items with my own $$$. I got the ELF flat top powder brush and the ELF blending brush. To my surprise lola bought me a bunch of other stuff. I'll be taking photos of each item soon and create a different post for it. Probably by tomorrow.
Anyway, aside from a few pieces of clothing (not in photos), that's basically all of the things I got during my mini vacation. Now let's move on to the stuff I got today...
I spent most of the day with my close friend Shanne, who seems to always be mistaken as my sister. She calls me "twin" and calls my boyf "daddy". Sometimes she calls me "mommy" to annoy me. Haha. Anyway, by the afternoon, we separated and I spent some time with my boyf. We stopped by a lil boutique called ForMe. It's located in one of the local malls. I was supposed to get a few accessories but was drawn to the scents on sale instead. I remember Ropa, a friend and fellow Zamboanga Blogger, blogging about getting a new scent from ForMe. I was supposed to get the pink bottle with the scent called cherry blossom (or something like that) but the boyf said he likes the purple bottle more. In the end, I agreed because in my opinion, it smells fresher. The scent is called jasmine and cost only P168.
The last thing I got today comes from an online shop on Facebook called Bezt Zelexion. It's a Zamboanga based shop and the owner agreed to meet up with me so I could claim my pair of replica skechers. I really liked the design and I'm planning to use this particular pair when I'll be starting my volunteer stint at Zamboanga City Medical Center, the local government hospital. I'm really excited!
That's basically my "haul" of some sort. Will probably make a video showing all the makeup stuff I bought and received. What do you guys think? Oh and before I forget, see that bronze bag in the photo? Well, that's my little surprise. I'm getting back to business. Watch out for it because I'm definitely posting about my little surprise soon!
Questions for my lovely readers:
1. Would you like me to make a separate post & video on the makeup products/tools I bought/received?
2. Do you like haul posts/videos? Why?
