This week whizzed by with 4 to 6 hours of sleep almost every day. There were so much work to do, so much after work commitments to fulfill and there wouldn't be a stay-indoors-and-chill day for this weekend. However, I don't mind not staying in at home this weekend because what it more important than to attend and celebrate friends' wedding and birthday?
The hubby had also been very busy this whole week too due to some important work commitment that required him to be on standby for 24/7 and hence we are both burnt out in what we call our most exhausting week ever.
In between our friend's wedding and his final call of duty today, we had some time to go shopping. When I was shopping with the hubby for 1 hour plus, we wound up not buying anything. Once he left me alone to run his errands, I bought 1 pair of Tory Burch shoes, 1 pair of Lanvin shoes, 2 Affliction T shirts all at a discount.
When the hubby returned, he sighed, "I regret leaving you there."
I bought the shoes from On Peddar. On Pedder is Asia's foremost source of designer footwear, handbags, fine jewelry and fashion accessories.
I'm someone who do not own many shoes like most girls do. I love to look at shoes and admire them well knowing I could not wear them. I have problematic feet and toe nails and could not wear many types of shoes. Ballerina shoes, pumps, all sorts of covered shoes without straps simply slide off my feet even if they are of the right size. The smaller ones would not slip off but they would bite and leave my toes all painful (due to the nature of my toe nails). Hence when I find shoes that fit me without much problem, I would not hesitate to buy them.
My hunt for ballerina shoes that fit my feet ended today when I discovered how comfortable Tory Burch and Lanvin ballerina flats are. They are definitely worth every single cent I paid for and what's more, the Lanvin were on 50% off while the Tory Burch were on 40% off. Guess which 2 pairs I bought in the end?
I bought the Tory Burch and the Lanvin on the left. While the Tory Burch looks a lot prettier with the flower, I must say the Lanvin is more comfortable. It is like walking on cushion with no biting edges.
On Peddar was having a promotion of an additional 10% off total purchase of 2 items and 15% off total purchase for 3 items. I very nearly bought a Stella McCartney bag as it was on 60% off. Can't really see if it is worth it in percentage? It was selling for SGD$832 when its normal price was SGD$2080! A lifelong vegetarian, Stella McCartney does not use any leather or fur in her designs. I'm amazed at how the bag looked so much like it was made of leather.
I did not buy it in the end as even though it was a huge discount, $832 could buy me a lot more. I don't need another bag.
I bought 2 biker rock style T shirts from Affliction too. I really ought to be shopping for Chinese New Year clothes instead! These are so not suitable for CNY.
After being chided by the hubby for the 4739303243409th time for spending (MY OWN) money, we had light dinner at CineCafe and caught Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. I really love twisted fairy tales and am glad that I knew the original version as a child in order to appreciate and fall in love with the twisted ones. I cannot imagine any child thinking that Hansel and Gretel went round blasting witches' heads and guts and leaving bloody mess everywhere.
On a separate note, my eldest sis watsapp me the new bottles of Absolut Vodka she has added to my bed's headboard from her few trips recently. Absolut Vodka is indeed trying to squeeze collectors dry of their money with all their new collections. We have to find a new place to house all these vodka soon as my headboard is running out of space.
I never knew Bottega Veneta has champagne till my sis bought them. So atas ah? I wonder how the taste of luxury is like.
The days ahead look set to be even busier with CNY approaching and more tasks at work. I only hope I could at least get my 6 hours of sleep every day.
Thank you all for dropping by and leaving me lovely comments. I would get down to replying them soon
