The Snake Made Me Do It!

OMG - there was a snake spotted in the office yesterday and sent the girls (and some boys) into a screaming frenzy when it was FINALLY discovered!

The snake traumatised me so much that I had to go shopping during lunch time to calm myself down.

Ok, that was just an excuse. I went window shopping during lunch yesterday, and couldnt help myself, I bought yet another pair of shoes I liked - paid $39 - on sale!

How am I supposed to resist the Great Singapore Sale, I wonder?

Shopping this week... so far...

Bought a pair of Hush Puppies sandals - on sale - $39

Bought three CVDs, each $6.95, which makes that a total of $21.

Why cant I stop!

The addict just cannot stop herself!

Yes, I shopped again this week, even though I'm broke and pay day is a week

Bought a dress on Monday. It's for work so it will always be useful. Paid
$69 for it - from a new shop in Tanglin Mall. Who says I'm not supportive
of local businesses, although the shop is owned and run by an Aussie! :-)

On Tuesday, I bought a 2-in-1 foundation/compact powder. I havent used one
for ages, but with weddings to attend in June, which means slapping on the
war paint, I thought it was wise to invest in one. Bought a Maybelline one
for $25 (I think), definitely under $30. That'll probably last me until...
until it expires!

Also, since my vanity knows no bounds, so I bought a cream to reduce
under-eye dark lines and bags. My fr-hens recommended it, and I did pay
$20 for it, so I hope the bloody thing works!

Came down with flu the next day, so the only thing I spent on was on my
doctor's fees and medication! Have not shopped since then, which is good
news for my wallet!

So, total amount spent this week: $114.

Oh dear.

half an hour to go before I get to go home....

Damn it, damn it, DAMN IT!!!

A pen leaked ink into my handbag! Fortunately, the spill was contained to only one corner of my handbag - so only my keypouch got the brunt of the spillage! Even so, it was quite the disaster, I got ink all over my fingers during the key pouch rescue operation.

Also, fortunately, it wasnt one of my precious leather handbags! Because if it was, I would get really mad and will be forced to go out and buy a new handbag this very day!

OMG - Ms Shopaholic went to KL during the weekend and DIDNT shop!

Ok, I did spend almost RM$600 on pendants, but that's only for stock for my online store (yet to be opened!) :-D

I also bought a pair of silver ear-rings for RM$39, an old issue of Cosmo bride (as reading material on the bus) for RM$13, and lots of snacks from the rest-stop, like dodol (yum!), muruku and mentos!

But no shoes, no clothes, nothing else! Even though my friends did try to tempt me into buying jeans and discounted designer wear! :-)

Please, let me keep this up and not shop anymore!

Though that said, I do want to buy a cupboard/cabinet for my handbags and shoes - it's a complete mess at home! Might have to pop by Ikea one of these days....

Self Control

Well, well. Ms Shopaholic does have self-control!

I didnt go to the Club21 sale yesterday after all! The BF enticed me home by telling me what he was going to cook for dinner - crab and prawn pasta! Food, that's my other addiction! It was super-duper yummy, and in the end, I was so glad I didnt go shopping that evening!

But the BF did! We went online together to pick out a ring for moi! The BF has placed the order (from a webstore in Texas!) and it should arrive in Singapore in the next 2-3 weeks!

Hurray, hurray!

Why did she have to tell me?

Oh-oh... my colleague has just told me that Club21 is having a really good sale - up to 70-80% discount! Why-oh-why did she have to tell me this? Now, instead of going straight home like a good girl, I just know I'm going to the sale instead!


I really shouldnt, since I'm off to KL this weekend and I bet I'll do some shopping over there. But will I listen to myself?

I doubt it!

Bad Shopaholic

So much for being good.

Went window-shopping yesterday, and wouldnt you know it, I found myself in the shoe department of Isetan Wisma. And wouldnt you know it, I found another pair of sandals that fit really well and was made of soft comfy leather, so needless to say, I splurged! $82 for a pair of sandals, but I think they're worth it!

And then today, I saw an email from Kate Spade which offered a further discount of 20%, even on sale items, but only through Friday. What's a shopaholic to do? How does a shopaholic resist such temptation? That's the thing, shopaholics cannot resist temptation, which is why I bought a lovely little leather handbag.

Original price: US$595
Sale price: US$298
I paid: US$248 (inc sales tax)

I actually picked another bag, which was more expensive but fortunately for me, it's made of boar skin so it wasnt fated for me to buy it! :-)

Oh, and no, this isnt going to eat into my 'Saving for a New Home Fund' - I have a couple of dollars left in my US bank account, well, after this purchase, not a lot left, I have to say!

So I am satisfied! And yeah, a little bit guilty. How do I tell the BF about my latest purchase? Especially since I promised not to buy anymore handbags!

No shopping!

Ms Shopaholic's been quiet lately as she hasnt been shopping!

Ok, not entirely true I guess. I bought two tees from Zara on Friday, but they were only $11.90 each.

I admit, I was tempted to buy a handbag too, and I kept picking up the same bag over and over again. But I gave myself a shake and kept telling myself I have more than enough handbags at home. And it worked because I didnt buy it!


Lets see if I can continue this good behaviour next week!

Shopping in Siem Reap

Ms Shopaholic is in Siem Reap right now!

I am absolutely loving it - Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom - amazing amazing structures! But there are too many temples to visit in a week, me thinks!

One last one to go today, then its SHOPPING time! In case you're wondering, no, I havent shopped (much), aside from a few scarves here, a few t-shirts there. But all that might change this afternoon and tomorrow when its going to be all out shopping and NO MORE TEMPLES!!! :-)

Does shopping while on holiday count? After all, I set aside and brought enough cash specifically for shopping, so I think I'm not going to count the shopping I do on this trip. Doesnt matter if I've bought 5 or 500 sillk scarves, a few bottles of delicious smelling lemongrass cream, or silly tees that say 'Same Same But Different' - its all part of my holiday budget.

Unless of course I start whipping out my credit card and start buying gemstones - then that's a different story!
