Christmas Christmas Christmas!! im not so engrossed with the countdown thingy but i know its just 20 plus days away.. what i am worried about is prioritizing the list..


its kinda true that as u grow old , rather grow up, u begin to receive lesser and lesser and u start buying for others...Not that I'm complaining but it would be more enjoyable if you have the means to buy gifts if you know what i mean.. hehe

i remember back in college, i really enjoyed shopping for friends, semi-friends, cliche' friends, true friends, friends-who-were-once-a-foe, feeling friends... i might be bad at budgeting but surprisingly all of them receive a lil something something from me..

in view of this, we are as excited to buy gifts for ourselves... the renowned "WISH LIST " which was planned 3 months earlier is being actualized lil' by lil.. penny by penny..

this christmas, i think ima skip tha activity t..maybe coz since i started earning on my own, i somehow managed to buy the things i want in small baby steps.. the things i dreamed of ... it may not be a 40cm Hermes birkin coz its effin impossible, but i know that i never deprived myself of any material things .. Material things that made me whole and happy even just for a while.

every month i make it a point to buy my so called LOL = list of lemmings which i write on my big blue notebook(the notebook security guards use lol)...

thats why im not that hungry to shop this season... i wish!

lAST Saturday, the loots i ordered from my good friend lovern arrived on my doorstep..its pure heaven! Since shes in New York, cosmetics are cheaper so i asked here ta buy me MUFE HD FOUNDATION.. after reading rave reviews for a year, ive finally decided that ima get this along with the limited edition of DSQUARED for MAC collection..yipee!

FOTD photos to follow! haha.. this is sooo gay, but bein a stylist and a beauty editor is my secret dream..

Just so you know, ive influenced some hospital people to be different.. to add a lil color on their skin.to discover their style.. Mahiya naman sila, mas makapal pa yung saken e sila itong mga tunay na babae! lol. the other day, the elevator girl applied a cream and green eyeshadow already, the nurse at 6th floor bought a mascara for herself, another nurse bought a local magazine after telling her that magazines are like the monthly bible we need in order to survive.. the power influence as i may say it. I guess thats another way of bein your very own Saint Nick.
