When Trinoma had their Green Light Sale last September 16-15, 2013, it was actually the first time that I felt the real feeling of being excited to shop. Like, I arrived the mall at 10:30AM! I was really planning on just buying more slacks for work from Landmark, but this time around I tried on like 6 or 7 pairs of "office worthy pants", but to no avail, as everything were loose and/or ill-fitting.
Even if my initial purpose of going to the mall was in vain, I found joy with these semi-impulse purchases. :D
Of all places, I dropped by Toys"R"Us! The first time I saw this set of beads, I immediately thought of my youngest sister so I got it for her.
Dream Girl Beads Set from Toys"R"Us (P200.00)
This set looked like the ones I used to play with as a kid. Throwback Thursday material!
Personalized Mini Flashlight Keychain from Powerbooks (P120.00)
This one's for my youngest sister, too, since keychains and trinkets are her kind of things.
Maybelline at 20% off at Landmark
These ones are my sisters' purchases. Note that I don't use eyeliners and waterproof mascara, but these are staples in their makeup kits.
While they were buying makeup at Landmark Department Store, I went down one level towards Landmark Supermarket, where I bought some boring and "unnecessary" stuff (as I would like to quote my sister). Haha!
Fluocaril Healthy Whitening (P157.65) & Oral-B Essential Floss (P151.90)
Aside from slacks, my planned purchases are toothpastes and dental floss. Boring, but necessary! :D Landmark Supermarket is my go to place for items such as these. I find that they carry the lowest prices - cheaper by P10.00 per toothpaste or floss compared to when you get the same product from SM/Watsons. Now you know!
Hershey's Cookies 'n Cream at Buy 2 Get 1 FREE (about P83.00)
I stopped buying this a long time ago since each bar was priced above P40.00, but now it's on sale, too!
I also dropped by Mercury Drug outside Landmark Supermarket to buy some Vitamin C.
Bewell-C Sodium Ascorbate (P55.00 per 10 pcs.)
I'm actually not choosy with the brand of vitamin C I take since they all have the same ingredient (Sodium Ascorbate), but this one had a Buy 10 Get 2 promo so I bought it anyway. I'm taking Sodium Ascorbate (instead of Ascorbic Acid) since it's a non-acidic version of Vitamin C.
Gladiator Sandals from Celine (about
P1,400.00 -> P700.00)
This one is also my sister's purchase. Almost all her sandals are gladiator sandals! :o
Black Animal Print Loafers from Tomato (
P500.00 -> P250.00)
It funny how we found this one. We were actually planning to go home, and the "50% off" sign from Tomato's kiosk distracted us. We looked around and saw that they were selling all their flats at 50% off! I've been to Tomato's store earlier that day and saw no sale signage, so I just ignored all the shoes. So, my sisters and I went back to the store, and got 4 pairs of shoes in 4 minutes. (Word play, but you get the idea!)
We also dropped by Forever 21, which was located in the mall next to Trinoma. The items we got weren't on sale, but we still got them anyway.
Forever 21 Black Polka Dot Peplum Skirt (P605.00)
This one's my sister's skirt. It's cute, but I wouldn't buy it. But since she bought it, I'm wearing it. >:)
Forever 21 Black Short Length Dress (P715.00)
When we got home, I realized this this dress was rather overpriced and loose around the torso. Perhaps, I just got carried away in the fitting room, since the fit looks like the dresses Taylor Swift would wear. But I wore this with a skinny belt to work, and everything was a-okay.
Forever 21 Black Cardigan (P455.00)
I found a crazy cheap cardigan in Forever 21! It's even cheaper than the cardigans in Landmark, but the fabric is soft and the fit is nice so this is a GREAT buy. I'll be abusing this one frequently since it goes well with my work clothes.
Prizes from Mooncake Festival Dice Game
My teammates and I played the Dice Game after work last week, and these are the prizes I won! Pretty fair for the P250.00 "entrance fee". :D
Any hauls you'd like to share? :)
