First Shopping Bag

It's usual for sellers, at least here in the Philippines, to regard and to wish for "buena mano" on their first sale, which is to have a "good hand", sort of.  So in the end, superstitions in play, if you get a good hand at the start of the day, it sets the precedence. So I couldn't help cheering on my first in-store shopping bag for 2012. I only hope for better things to come! Yay! ;-D

My first shopping bag for 2012 is from Marks and Spencer! :-D
3-part set. Long sleeves studded blouse, Blue Sleeveless Cardigan, Scarf at 40% off Php 2750 Orig Price to Php 1650 Sale Price. :-D
This ensemble makes layering easy peasy. Each can be worn separately, so the possibilities of mixing and matching are endless. Yay! :-D We also availed the Php 300 discount/reward card, which is valid for three years. I'm not really a M&S connoisseur, but I do like getting my girl's stuff from here. But maybe with this buy, I might be visiting more often. ;-D

How about you, what's your buana mano shopping steal/s for 2012? ;-D

About Me

My photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
