Latest Shopping Finds

Last week, my cousin and I seemed to have been hit by the shopping bug. Look at what we bought: 

Here's the cute box packaging of the earring set that I bought from Avon! 

Six oh so pretty earrings that came with an affordable price of Php400+ 

And that's my cousin, Mark's new watch from Avon. He actually doesn't really buy Avon stuff 'cos he thought Avon only carried products for women but then he browsed through it and voila! He fell in love with this watch and bought it. I think it's a very cute watch and at Php1000+ that's pretty affordable already. Perhaps I'll get the other one that's made for women. Hmm...

And that my friends is my new work bag from A'postrophe! After weeks of searching for a new bag, I finally found the bag that speaks to me. It's big, spacious and stylish - all the things I am looking for in a bag. So it cost Php2000+ but I think it's worth it. This makes me look forward to going to the office everyday again. 

Mark and I are definitely happy about our purchases. Nothing like indulging in some retail therapy to remind ourselves why we work so hard in the first place (saved for the need to pay bills). (",)

My Latest Accessory Finds from Avon

Aside from shoes, another fashion item I can't resist buying is accessories >>> necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches and rings! When I spot a really cute accessory, I almost always have to buy it ASAP. I've so many of them that I sometimes forget to wear some of them already to the dismay of my roommate of course because she says I've a lot of pretty accessories that don't see the light of day. I also have one too many of 'em that I have to hide my latest buys from Mom because if and when she sees that I bought another, she will no doubt go bonkers and scold me. Luckily, I can sometimes pass it off as a shopping find of my roommate. I know! So shrewd of me! (",)

Anyhoo, lemme show you my latest accessories from Avon taken with my latest Samsung WB150F digicam! 

My pretty earrings from Avon!

Movie Review: American Pie The Reunion

I'm a fan of the original American Pie movies - the ones that stars Jason Biggs. I've always thought it's one of those very tastefully done sex comedies and by that I mean on top of the sex, it's a story about friendship, growing up and love. I remember watching the first two American Pie movies when I was still in high school and American Pie The Wedding in College. Fast forward a couple of years later and whaddaya know? Another American Pie movie is out in theaters with all the original casts in it!

My cousin and I had to see it as soon as we could and on the second day of showing, off we went to the cinemas to watch it. It definitely did not disappoint me. It was still funny as heck and every bit of a feel good movie. Stifler is still my favorite aside from the lead guy, Jim. He really brought the spice in the movie. 

I'm so glad that the writers of this movie didn't fail to give American Pie The Reunion a great story plot and combined with feel good music from early 2000 and some of today's tunes, American Pie The Reunion is overall a must see movie especially if you've been a fan of the first three. 

I was rooting for a Kevin-Vicky get together again like Chris and Heather but well can't win 'em all. 

The original American Pie cast, older but I love 'em still!
