Shopping... Such a Guilty Pleasure!!!

Recently, my husband noticed that the shirt I was wearing was over-used already (and so are most of my things!). I don't usually shop for clothes, bags and shoes unless I see something nice and cheap ;) I am more into "things for the house" shopper... So anyway, I decided that each month, I would buy one item. I started last month and I bought an automatic umbrella since weather here in the Philippines is so unpredictable (and my husband always checks if I have an umbrella with me when I go out)!

This February, I planned to buy a new blouse at the mall. However, I side-tripped to a flea market yesterday and I saw a beautiful slightly used satchel bag! I don't usually buy bags because I am happy with hand-me-downs but the off-white satchel bag really caught my fancy so I bought it!

I still went to the mall with the intention to just window-shop. Uh-oh... Alas, there was a new model of Sketchers Tone-Ups! I have been contemplating of getting myself a FitFlops sandals and the Sketchers version of it are equally nice and a little bit cheaper. It was so good and comfortable in my feet I wasn't able to resist having them bagged!!!

No regrets although I'm a little guilty about the blouse!
