Nevermind what I wanted to write about two days ago, about being in love but not in a romantic way and me being a plant yada yada. God is great and oh so wise! Today was my last day of PE class and he made it oh so special. I got to try to fence on a makeshift piste but with all of the equipment Ma’am Otadoy lent us and I won both of my 2 bouts. It was cool! I had too much fun. I was seating my head off in that mask but who cares.

 

Plus, there was no PI 100 or SP 102 today. I got more sleep!

I’m really considering fencing as a sport huhuhu I hope my dad sees this through!

So basically before college my wardrobe was dismal, only consisting of t-shirts, jeans, and maybe a few blouses. Now since my self-confidence has increased a substantial amount, my wardrobe followed suite and according to my estimate has increased by 500%. Or so I think.

Today I went on an unplanned, impulsive shopping exhibition to—DUN DUN DUN—a thrift store! I love CHEAP clothes, especially the kind that you can wear over and over again so the cost per wear is so next to nothing. I used to think that Divisoria was the best place to shop for clothes if you were on a budget, but I stand corrected– a thrift store is (but divisoria is if you want brand new things). Ugh, as long as you have an eye for great fashion choices then this is literally heaven for you. I was trying so hard not to burst out squee-ing with every fabulous find I got my hands on. I also made sure that I looked as poor as possible just to avoid unnecessary price increases (yes because some employees price their items according to who’s asking and from what social class that person seems to be from).

I would’ve stayed a bit longer in the store but my ARM was aching and I could barely hold onto my purchases already. Haha, so as I made my way home I was struggling to hold my umbrella, clothes, and other purchases.

I’ll be posting pictures of hat I bought. They look so much better worn, but I don’t really have time for that. Here it goes!

Image

This is a cream-colored blazer which I got for 55 pesos! This is the second to the last piece that I got and I have to say it is worth every single cent. It’s in perfect condition!

Image

Even the tag is still intact!

Image

No missing buttons to be found!

Image

I suck at photography but this is really a baby-blue colored sleeveless top which amounts to only 25 pesos since I found it in the 4 for 100 rack.

Image

The last piece I picked up and one of my favorites, a tribal printed skirt! It’s in the 4 for 100 rack as well, but since I couldn’t find 3 more pieces to go along with it, it costs 35 pesos. Such a steal since tribal prints are trending once again!

Image

Another item from the 4 for 100 rack which I adore so much! A dark blue blouse with floral prints. Ohhh I can’t wait to wear this over a dress!

Image

This one still has its tag attached!\

Image

This looks so much better in actual, blame my lack-luster camera skills. It’s actually a gold metallic knit sweater like those that sell for IDK how much in F21 and the likes but I got it for 25 pesos. Homeless look, here I come. :))

Image

Believe me it’s gold!

Image

One of the first pieces I found, what I really love about it are the studs along the neckline.

Image

Again, for only 25 pesos!

Image

It’s the design that got me again for this one, the knitting along the neckline!

Image

Adorable knitting!

Image

This is a steal for 25 pesos, a khaki colored polo which I can use to channel my inner crocodile hunter! Teehee!

Image

It says “The Scout Shop of Hongkong” on the tag.

Image

This one is a knit top for 25 pesos oh how I love to pair it with short, leggings, and oxfords.

Image

Last but not the least, finally my own chunky sweater! YEY YEY YEY- 25 pesos too!

In total I got 10 clothes for only 290 pesos! What a great day! 😀

Notebooks and Trinkets

Image

I’ve been idle and had nothing important to do since summer break started, so I figured I’d blog about my notebooks that I own so many of.

I don’t collect them. The image above doesn’t even include the numerous post-its and notepads I own. I always enjoyed bookstores ever since and one of the many things I buy from them, aside from books, are these notebooks, memopads, and post-its.

I don’t like writing in them because I feel like I’ve ruined them with my terrible scrawl. Then what purpose do they serve? I’m not really sure. The cute designs and the different textures of pages within give me a weird satisfaction. Weird.
