It was just then lately that I and my boyfriend gone shopping for toys for my little sister and his nephew. We had a hard time really to choose what toys suit the two. We’ve gone to several toy stores like Toy Kingdom but surprisingly, of the number of toys there, we still could not decide what to buy.
On the other hand, I was personally dismayed to know that despite the fact that it’s Christmas, toy stores didn’t have some good deals to their shoppers. Neither discounts nor freebies were offered considering that Christmas was a long awaited time for children. Also, we were surprised how the toys now became so much of a technology-driven that was far different during our times when we were the ones who made toys to life. Amazed by these innovations, our selection of toys had even taken longer. In addition, this amusement had even puzzled as what to buy and upon looking at their prices, we were frozen to see how a single toy was now of similar value as a flatscreen LED TV. Then, we sighed that this was an impractical joke. However, we really had to choose which toy is best for the two, and you know what, we had settled into something educational and associative than those technological which would only make children sedentary and withdrawn. I am not suggesting that this was the best choice for toys but for our situation now, we must consider always the value that we uphold as adults and not to become blinded by our desire to be trendy.

Don’t waste your money on an expensive wardrobe update with costly clothes. Instead, save your cash so that you can go on a nice date with your significant other. The good news is that you don’t need to compromise your looks! There is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to look fabulous and save money. This year, you can get the latest fashion favorites from eBay for $25 or less. Here are some ideas on how to dress up on a budget that won’t leave you stressing about the numbers on your bank statement. Then click here for more reviews.
You can find many different dress styles on eBay for very low prices. It is always nice to get something special, or a different style of dress than you usually wear (wrap dresses are always pretty), a color you haven’t tried in a while (emerald green is gorgeous and very in), even a new dress length. But you shouldn’t have to skimp on your next date because of this. From long, elegant, and sophisticated to short, flirty, and charming, you can always find the perfect dresses for you on eBay. One great idea is to pair a bold-colored or animal-print dress (grr!) with a black cardigan and some nice earrings for a gorgeous look. It works for women of all shapes and sizes. If the dress is short, consider wearing boots so you can keep your legs warm. If you’re attending a more formal event, choose a long gown. This will have both a lengthening and slimming effect, so you will look stunning from your head to your toes.
Although they aren’t as big and bold as dresses, the right socks can be a perfect touch if you are going for a cozy and cuddly look (movie night on the couch, anyone?) Get matching socks for you and your partner for an extra touch of romance (okay, so you guys might feel a little goofy, but isn’t that what being in love is about?) You can even consider getting your socks custom-made and personalized to make them extra special. Instead of classic socks, you can also purchase them in your partner’s favorite color or designs. This is a great way to show your guy that you were thinking about him and that you care enough to remember his favorite things. Awww!
Since the climate is chilly in many areas (like ours!) these days, you may not be able to wear the frilly dress you imagined or the lightweight shirt you thought would be perfect. (Brrr, forget it!) But that doesn’t mean you can’t still look trendy and chic. Stay warm this year with a beautiful sweater. A shamelessly girly red or pink cardigan will look perfect paired with any dark-colored dress or skirt.
Sometimes ordering online can actually make the cost of your new things much higher than it would be if you bought them in a store at the mall. Why? Well, it’s because of those darn added shipping charges. That’s a bummer—but don’t let it worry you. With FreeShipping.com, you can keep your total below $25—shipping included! With free shipping options that allow you to order from eBay.com and save, you can create the perfect look for yourself without breaking the bank. Learn more about free shipping here. Now go spend your money on the person you love, and have a very happy Valentine’s Day!
It’s Valentine’s Day! My hubby and I originally planned to go out of town pending the weather conditions. Since the weather did not cooperate, we decided that we would have dinner at a nearby restaurant that is offering a Prime Rib special. We normally don’t go crazy on gift exchanges but my hubby really wanted to get me at least a card and chocolates, instead I talked him into buying me some jewelry.
I like to receive flowers, who doesn’t? The problem with flowers are that they wither and die and I wanted something that would last a little longer like jewelry. He bought me this necklace and earrings set as pictured above. It was not expensive but I like it.
Our Valentine’s Day celebration did not turn out very romantic as we had hoped. I don’t want to go into a lot of details but it was one for the books. We were both looking forward to a nice prime rib dinner but when we arrived only twenty five minutes after the special started and we ordered it, they came back and told us that they had run out. Things went downhill from there, it was a very disappointing Valentine’s Day dinner. After dinner, we tried to enjoy the rest of the night but the incident in the restaurant was just too emotionally draining and upsetting so my hubby and I decided to just forget about it and go to sleep.

I have two favorite stores in the nearby mall. rue21 is my favorite of the two because that is where I find the stuff that fits me and is at bargain prices as well. I am petite and only 4’10 tall. That is where I normally buy my underwear because they usually have them for under $3 when they are on sale. I haven’t been shopping as much as usual because it has been frigidly cold up here in northern Minnesota lately. We have been getting a lot of subzero temperatures and that keeps me from wanting to go outside. I have been thinking about hitting the mall as soon as we get some decent weather. My recent purchases from rue21 were skinny jeans for my younger sister, a few wallets and a dozen undies. The jeans and wallets went in the Balikbayan box that I sent to my family back home in the Philippines. I will definitely be going shopping at rue21 very soon for spring and summer clothes.
When my hubby and I went to the Philippines last year, I left most of my tees and shorts there. I was trying to minimize as much excess baggage fees as possible. As a result, I now have a good excuse to go shopping for more . Sounds reasonable, right? I am hoping to get a pair of these Frayed Cuff Denim Shorts. I am also looking for graphic tees for Gals carried by rue21. Unfortunately, I can’t find them on their website yet.

Last week, I and my boyfriend went for a Christmas Shopping in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines just after I had taken my Board Examination there. It was a great time indeed to celebrate and shop for gifts. Somehow, it did comfort and reward me for having around 8 months straight of sacrifices to prepare for this greatest test of my nurse’s life, and so we decided to take chances and roam around the city’s malls.
We went around Centrio, which is one of the prestigious Ayala malls in the country where nature’s solace is always a part of their offered shopping experience. I had always felt positive in their gardens which is just located in the midst of their giant mall premises. I had never feel Christmas spirit until then, when we walked around the gardens filled with lights, children and real poinsettias lined in the stairs. When we went to Shoe Mart (SM) Mall, which was quite far away from the city proper, a feeling of wanting to become children again had filled our hearts. We witnessed a Christmas play there comprised of ballet dancing, operatic singing and theatrical interpretation of Christmas with its theme of generosity and unconditional friendship. In addition, when we moved to Limketkai Mall, another children’s party was held and again our desires to be children again grew even more intense.
It’s really amazing to realize that malls could be this proactive in meeting their shoppers’ needs, not only physically but even socially and emotionally. I did not expect that shopping could be this fun and yet emotionally satisfying and how I hope that a lot of places could be like these malls which provide internal balance with fun.
To distinguish a man from other species is its ability to have a sense of self-awareness, this is the result of a study in Denmark in trying to decipher man’s uniqueness. Having a sense of self-awareness means man becomes conscious about how people will see him and how will he be able to belong in this society. Such therefore is evident by how we behave and obviously by how we dress. Consciousness is indeed an issue.
This somehow explains why we are very conscious about how we look, what to wear everyday and buying clothes that are in today’s fad and trend helps us feel safe and belonged. Thus, the statements or propositions above can be simple explanations how can shopping be therapeutic for us. However, not everyone is given all the resources to do so. Problem arises because primarily of some financial constraints and time issues. It is due to the fact that we are not all blessed to have them both nor even one.
On the other hand, shopping is no longer a problem for us with the advent of online shopping and most especially with Dress First, who can be our online closet for wedding dresses. They are the solution for a budget and time problem as they will give us a one of a kind online shopping experience anywhere and anytime. Whether it’s for a wedding, a prom, a simple family gathering or a prestigious party, they have all we need. Yet the best part is that they too have weekly deals that we can enjoy and shoes that we can pair with the cocktail dresses available. Manifold styles to choose from but each has a promising elegance that despite our busy schedules, we can still indulge ourselves with and imprint to others what we want them to see and treat us. With them, being classy and exceptional are both a right and a privilege.
