My first weekend treat to myself this 2013 was buying Taylor Swift's latest album, Red! I know I can just download songs online, but because Taylor Swift is my favorite singer/songwriter, I had to have a copy of her album - something that I can hold in my hands and maybe even let her sign an autograph on for when we would someday meet. (Dreaming!)
Taylor Swift's Red (Deluxe Edition)
Taylor Swift Red Deluxe Edition has 2 CDs inside. The first one contains 16 tracks (same as the regular edition), and the second one contains the 6 bonus tracks. I seriously can't stop listening to her songs, and right now I'm liking the acoustic version of State of Grace. It's so mellow compared to the original version.
- State of Grace
- I knew you Were Trouble
- All Too Well
- I Almost Do
- We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
- Stay Stay Stay
- The Last Time
- Holy Ground
- Sad Beautiful Tragic
- The Lucky One
- Everything Has Changed
- Begin Again
- The Moment I Knew
- Come Back...Be Here
- Girl At Home
- Treacherous (Original Demo)
- Red (Original Demo)
- State Of Grace (Acoustic Version)
I went to Odyssey in SM North EDSA after work and checked out their displays for this. Red was so easy to find - it's rank either 1st or 2nd top-selling album in any record store. However, some of the ones displayed on the shelf had cracks on the plastic packaging, so I asked for a new stock that wasn't on display. (Do check all corners of the record packaging thoroughly before buying in any record store.)
Along with my purchase were these fabulous GWPs! For this album, I believe Odyssey gives away more freebies compared to Astroplus. In Odyssey, they gave away a tote bag, a baller band, and a poster, while in Astroplus they only gave away a baller band when you buy the same Red Deluxe Edition album.

I love this eco-bag! Plastics aren't allowed anymore in Quezon City, so this will come in handy on my next mall trip.

There's another version of this with white background with red and black lettering, but I liked this one more! I gave this to my kid sister who loves Taylor Swift as much as I do. (During the Christmas break, I'd catch her watching MTV or Channel V often, where Taylor Swift's music videos play several times a day).
Taylor Swift Poster (2013 Calendar)
I know we already have lots of 2013 calendars at home, but this one is a fine addition that has already found its place on our bedroom wall.
I'm so loving Taylor Swift's latest album! Comment away if you love her, too! ♥
