Twenties Girl

I've been so busy at work because we're gearing up for our big dome event this December 6 so I haven't been able to blog so much. But since I've been given a reprieved from doing so much overtime at work (I've no work this Sunday and Monday, yey!) I used my free time to finish reading my latest book buy: Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella!

First of all, I'm a fan of Sophie's works. I've read all her Shopaholic series (with the exemption of her new one, Mini Shopaholic), Can You Keep a Secret, Remember Me and The Undomestic Goddess. That's not to say that I loved each and every book after Shopaholic because I didn't so much until this book!

Twenties Girl is a very heart warming story about family. Lara Lington is my next favorite heroine now after Becky Bloomwood and I loved her exchange of banters with her great aunt Sadie who's a ghost! I could relate in Lara's love story with Josh. It's true what they say, love is blind! What do I mean by that? Well, you'll just have to read the book yourself to find out because I don't want to give out the whole story!

I usually cry when I watch sappy romantic movies but this is the first time I cried after I read a book. Twenties Girl is that touching! It will really tug at your heart strings. Read it! I promise you'll love this book by Sophie.

                                                A great read! It's got everything from love, mystery to humor!

Bonding over Coffee

You know it's Christmas when the red cups are here. Lookie! It's got a new look! 

Ryan's got three stickers already. Bonsch and I gave him our stickers.

I was feeling kinda blue yesterday but my mood changed when I met up with my two best friends: Ryan and Bonsch at Mall of Asia. We bonded over coffee at Starbucks, talking about everything and anything under the sun. 

It's almost Christmas again. The red cups are here after all! Have you seen their new planner? It looks fabulous. But I'm not collecting stickers this year. I have to be practical now. After all, 17 stickers entails me to spend about a thousand bucks on coffee. Maybe for those who can't make it through the day without Starbucks coffee, this annual promotion is just cherry on top but that's not me... So...

I have my eyes set on another planner, none other than the Belle de Jour Power Planner! 

I love the new design.

For the kikay and shopaholic girl like me, this is the perfect planner for me! It's got discount coupons, events for the BDJ girls and stylish design on its pages. I haven't bought it yet, although it's already out but SOON I will. If you want to avail of the 5% discount, I suggest you order at their website until Nov. 30! I know I will.
